Today's Opinions

  • Ride for Relay

    My name is Debbie Drury and I am an 11-year breast cancer survivor.

    With all the horrible things I had heard about this disease, I was absolutely petrified of what I had to look forward to. After a mastectomy (which made me feel so ugly), six months of chemo (which made me so sick) and six surgeries later, including another mastectomy, I was so tired and worn out I didn't know if I was gonna make it or not but I did and I'm here now.

  • Memorial Day: A day for honoring our heroes

    Daniel Webster once said, "God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it."

  • Just beginning

    When I was one-and-twenty

    I heard a wise man say,

    'Give crowns and pounds and guineas

    But not your heart away;

    Give pearls away and rubies

    But keep your fancy free.'

    But I was one-and-twenty,

    No use to talk to me.

    — "When I was one-and-twenty"

    By A.E. Housman

    This Saturday, the members of the class of 2010 will celebrate their graduation from Marion County High School.

  • Some for all, and all for none

    Last week's primary election produced a lot of frustration. I know that for some it produced glee and happiness, but we're going to focus on the frustrated for now.

    I'm not referring to any of the candidates. I'm not even referring to the voters who supported the candidates who lost last week.

    I'm talking about voters who didn't have the opportunity to vote.

  • A beautiful mosaic

    "We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams." - Jimmy Carter

    Marion County, the community I have called home for almost 31 years, has truly become a beautiful mosaic. And it seems fitting that I saw a portion of that "mosaic" during a visit to "Arts and Humanities Day" at A.C. Glasscock Elementary School last week.

  • Giving credit where credit is due

    Last week, after the flood waters receded and the clean-up effort began, Emergency Management Director Kenny Blair paid us a visit here at the Enterprise.

  • Fire, ice or water

    While the sloppy racetrack conditions posed a problem at Churchill Downs this past weekend for the Kentucky Derby, it was the 7 to 8 inches of rain Mother Nature dumped on central Kentucky that caused widespread flooding, road closures and other troubles for residents in Marion County.   The rain seemed to be never-ending.   It rained, it rained and it rained some more.

    As a result, many people found themselves trapped - either in their flooded homes or vehicles - and they needed help fast.
