  • Stem cell research: Friend or foe?

    Cells, science, ethics, medicine, and morals: just some of the words that describe the world of stem cell research. To the average American, this is just some educated mumbo-jumbo that is hardly worth following. The Bush Administration cooled the flames of stem cell research in early 2001, by limiting the amount of taxpayer dollars that could be spent on the research. 

  • History is worth preserving, but it must be done right

    Putting the cart before the horse.

    It's a common mistake when beginning a new project. People get so excited about thoughts of the end result that they innocently skip over some of the most essential steps along the way.

    That is what we believe has happened with the Marion County Historical Society and its plans for a local history museum. The society and its members have hundreds of fascinating items to include in exhibits and a list of possible volunteers to help with the day-to-day happenings at the museum, but several key components are missing.

  • Down, but not out

    Fewer shavees showed up this year, and less money was raised, but none of that changes the reason Marion County hosted its third St. Baldrick’s Saturday.

  • Letter to the editor: History museum a challenge and an opportunity

    For the past year, the Marion County Historical Society Board of Trustees has focused on the message of “Opportunity, Challenge, Responsibility.”

  • Letters to the editor, March 11

    Poor judgment indeed!

  • February closes with a flurry of legislative action

    As my colleagues and I returned from the 2009 session's five-day hiatus, we quickly resumed our work attending meetings, hearing testimony, studying proposed legislation and approving bills in the House chambers as only 12 days remain in this year's legislative session.

    Legislative committee meetings were full of debate and action this week.  The House Banking and Insurance Committee approved legislation that protects life insurance policyholders.

  • News staff is being unfair over email

    I am writing to express my displeasure with the manner that the staff of The Lebanon Enterprise have conducted a judgment of my receiving and forwarding e-mail.

  • Extremely poor judgment

    If you search for "white pride" in any Internet search engine, you'll return hundreds of thousands of results. You'll notice quickly that those results contain frequent references to skinhead, neo-Nazi and Klan organizations. Knowing this, maybe you'll understand why we were concerned when a local elected official sent an email to the editor of this newspaper with the subject line "Proud to be white."

    That email came from George Edelen Jr., a city commissioner in Bradfordsville.
