Today's Opinions

  • Column: Becoming the weird guy at the park

    When I was younger, I didn't view physical activity as exercise. Sports were just a fun way to pass the time. My brother and I would play baseball, basketball or football (depending on what was in season) with other kids in the neighborhood and our friends from school. I ran cross country in high school and played tennis my senior year. In college, I continued to play pick-up basketball, and I started making the weight room part of my weekly routine.

  • Letter: Seeking answers from and about the post office

    In my experience with individual people, businesses and organizations, I have found that those who "have nothing to hide, hide nothing." This past week, I have attempted to get more facts and figures from the Postal Service regarding the situation that will affect our postal routes in St. Francis and Loretto.

  • Letter: Don't forget the gym

    I was surprised that last week's extensive article on health and fitness through Zumba failed to give any information on our locally owned and operated Lebanon Health and Fitness center on Main Street. Open 24 hours, it features a certified trainer in-house, weight training equipment, kick-boxing, an aerobics class and the popular Silver Sneakers program. Silver Sneakers is a nationally recognized fitness program for seniors. It is so popular and effective that many insurance companies sponsor membership because of its preventative aspects.

  • Mission or intermission?

    The mission of the Lebanon Tourist & Convention Commission is to develop, increase and promote tourism in Lebanon and surrounding areas by featuring its history, culture, products and recreation/convention facilities.

    Our goal is to become a choice destination for group travel, conventions and individual leisure/recreation travel. Through these efforts, the commission seeks to increase visitor spending, local revenue and job development, thereby enhancing the area's quality of life.

  • Higdon: Senate focuses on education, health care

    This was a very busy week in Frankfort with several rallies and many constituent visits. As for legislation, education and healthcare were the focus of a number of the bills we passed.

  • Mills: House approves corrections reform bill

    Each legislative session, the General Assembly spends much of its time on just a few areas: public safety, improving government services, education and our health.

    In the 2011 Regular Session, that focus in the Kentucky House can be found in such high profile bills as raising the high school dropout age from 16 to 18, closing an unexpected deficit in Medicaid and cracking down on drunken driving. Many others also neatly fit within those categories.

  • Letter: Remember those in need

    The Community Service Center Board Members would like to express their heartfelt appreciation to anyone who donated food items or money to help others in need.

  • Letter: Book recommendation

    I just finished reading Homegrown and Memory Closet. How many of you remember Ninie Sooter Glasscock who is now Ninie Hammon? She used to write for our own Lebanon Enterprise and other local papers. She lives in London, England, now and has written several books. I really enjoyed these two books.  They are both about things that really happened around here, and if you lived here during the 80's you will recognize the specific events.
