  • Letter: Let us vote on E-911

    If E911 is so good then let the people vote on it.

    If E911 is explained to the people, then when they vote on it your local government will see they support it.

    Without a vote by the people, how can you be sure that the people support it.

    So, be democratic about it and set up a vote on this issue by Marion County citizens.

  • Column: Special session needed to resolve Medicaid issue

    Last fall, when the General Assembly finalized the calendar for the 2011 Regular Session, this past week was scheduled to be one of the quietest of the year. It was set aside as part of a 10-day period known as the veto recess, which gives the governor time to consider legislation sent to him and then gives legislators a chance to use the session's final day to consider vetoes, if any occur.

  • Letter: Financial, political gaps remain on Medicaid

    One week into most narrowly-called special sessions, the General Assembly has completed its work, sent the final legislation to the governor for his signature, and headed home - or at least has a pretty good idea of how long that process might take. Then again, we usually try to have an agreement in place before the special session is called, hoping to save our own time and taxpayers' money. That hasn't been the case for this special session.

  • How to help

    Watching the television news, reading the newspapers and surfing the Internet, images of the disaster in Japan are everywhere.

    On March 11, Japan was hit by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded. The magnitude-9.0 quake set off a deadly tsunami that crashed into the small island nation. Thousands of people are dead, many more are still missing or injured and almost half a million people are homeless. The country is also facing a nuclear crisis.

  • Penny wise

    The Lebanon City Council’s recent vote to eliminate the city’s restaurant tax, which would kill the local tourism commission, has created a buzz around town.

    But, it’s not a done deal yet.

    The council must approve two readings of an amendment to its tourism ordinance and that amendment must be published officially before the tax would end.

  • Letter: Celebrate agriculture
  • Letter: Hamilton loves his job and his community
  • Letter: Editorial was right

    I was pleased to read Ms. Lowery’s opinion in The Lebanon Enterprise dated March 2. It is the same feelings that I have heard other people express about the tourism commission and the recent controversy surrounding this.
