  • Letter: Superintendent explains school closing decisions

    This letter will hopefully be of help to all concerned parties regarding the cancellation of Marion County Public Schools in the impending case of inclement weather.

  • Letter: Cancel my subscription

    As an editor you are entitled to your opinion. Personally, I think it stinks!!!!

  • Letter: Tennis tournament benefits from tourist commission

    In light of a recent news article, I write to provide information about the Lebanon Tourist and Convention Commission's efforts in assisting the 2010 Farmers National Bank Heart of Kentucky Tennis Open. The FNB Heart of Kentucky Tennis Open has been a late summer annual event in Lebanon for the last five years. Lebanon is one of only eight cities that participates in the Central Kentucky Tennis Series competition. The Kentucky USTA named the CKTS as the 2010 community tennis association for the state.

  • Letter: Enjoyed holiday festival

    My husband and I had such a great time in Lebanon during the Heart of Kentucky Holiday Festival. Your tourism director, Chris Hamilton, and Christy Lee were so hospitable. We loved seeing the lights at Ruley's Santa Claus Land, Maker's Mark and bull riding at XB Arena! We can definitely say we had the small town Christmas experience!

  • Letter: Good job, Governor

    I applaud Governor Steve Beshear for stepping in and working with AK Steel and the Environmental Protection Agency in trying to resolve environmental violations at the Ashland coal plant. According to a Dec. 9 article in The (Ashland, Ky.) Independent, company representatives acknowledge problems at the plant and project $50 million to resolve these problems to the satisfaction of the EPA. I wish the governor and AK well, and hope that they will come to the reasonable solution they seek If they are successful, many good-paying jobs will be saved.

  • Big decision

    No one is perfect.

    We all make mistakes. We don't always use the best judgment and, occasionally, we act before we think.

    We are human, after all.

  • Show that you care

    Can you imagine leaving your family, your home and basically all of your belongings and starting your life from scratch?

    Last week, I met a woman who has been forced to do just that. She is a victim of domestic violence. Or, rather, I should say she is a survivor.

  • Letter: Stay safe during the holidays

    Kudos to the Marion County EMS/Rescue Squad on Walnut Street for their efforts to keep Marion Countians safe while driving this holiday season. Their impossible-to-miss signs and the wrecked car in front of their station are great reminders of how to keep yourself and your loved ones safe during the holidays by remembering a few simple driving rules.  The signs plainly outline the ways to keep safe and make sure you have a ‘Happy Ever After’.
