Today's Opinions

  • GRAND SLAM

    In baseball, grand slams are only possible when a batter takes advantage of a rare opportunity. The circumstances have to be just right, and on the rare occasions when that happens, the batter still has to capitalize on the situation.

    This year, Lebanon got that kind of opportunity, and it knocked one out of the park.

    The 2011 Kentucky State Little League Tournament came to town July 16-21, and the Marion County Little League did a marvelous job as the tournament host.

  • Innocent until proven guilty

    Like half the population of the United States (and at this point, even the world), I took an interest in the Casey Anthony trial, which recently reached a verdict, as most of you already know. I wouldn't say I was obsessed with it on a Nancy Grace scale, but I would tune in every once in a while to watch the trial and home videos that were broadcast on every news channel. 

  • Don't get beat by the heat

    With the way things have been going this summer, maybe we should all take a lesson from the Dallas Mavericks.

    That's right, we need to do what we can to beat the heat.

    Weather forecasters are calling for temperatures in the 90s in several parts of Kentucky this week, with the potential for heat indexes as high as 110 degrees. For our purposes, the heat index would be the opposite of wind chill factor.

  • Keep Chugging Along

    Despite all the talk about enhanced 911 in Marion County, previous trips have been sidetracked repeatedly. This time, however, the effort may be picking up steam.

    In March, the Marion County Fiscal Court and the Lebanon City Council agreed to share the costs of the mapping and addressing that must be completed before E911 can be put in place.

  • Don't forget about Kara

    Every day when I arrive to work and when I leave to go home, I see Kara Tingle Rigdon's face.

    For months, a missing person's poster has been taped on the Enterprise's front door that includes Kara's photo and information about her disappearance.

    This Sunday, July 17, will mark the one-year anniversary of when she was last seen.
