  • Letter: Enjoyed the holiday festival

    I just wanted to say kudos to the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission and its director, Chris Hamilton, for another great year at the Heart of Kentucky Holiday Festival. We liked the new events and the bull riding at XB Arena was just great.

    Mr. Higdon of Higdon’s Foodtown and the state senate welcomed us and came by the Hampton Inn and had coffee with us. We met him last year at Big Jim’s Steakhouse and he remembered us when we went to his grocery!

  • Resist temptation to continue bad habits

     

  • Celebrate Safely

    "What are you doing for New Year's?"

    There's a good chance you have been asked or will be asked that question some time in the next few days. We hope that you do something you'll enjoy, whether it's dancing the night away, toasting the new year with friends and family or just spending a quiet night at home.

  • Letter: Superintendent should change his outlook
  • Letter: Compassion can be found in Lebanon
  • An act of defiance?

    As I listened to the Marion County School Superintendent's defiant tone on the radio this morning, he sounded like a person that is threatened by the incoming school board, and he also sounded like he was challenging the new school board to bring facts to the table about what is happening in Marion County schools. So, let's lay some facts on the table:

  • 'Mommy, is this fattening?'

    "Mommy, is this fattening?" my four-year-old son asked as I sat down on the couch beside him with a bowl of popcorn.
    Completely shocked, I replied, "No, honey, it's not fattening. And you don't need to worry about that anyway."
    As he began to munch on the popcorn and watch his favorite Spiderman cartoon, I wondered to myself, "Why on earth would he ask such a thing? He's four years old, why would he even care?"
    But, I already knew why. And, I'm ashamed to say that I'm to blame.
