  • 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.

  • Take time to take care of your heart, yourself

    A killer once stalked me almost snuffing out my young life.

    The deadly force didn't lurk around corners, sneaking quick peeks or huddle outside the shrubs in front of my house - watching, waiting.

    This frightening phantom was hiding inside my chest, little by little, growing over many years.

    It was coronary heart disease.

    The dreaded slayer takes more lives than any other disease in the U.S. and it had my number.

    Going beyond full measure

    On behalf of the Marion County Board of Education, I am writing to express appreciation for Marion County Judge/Executive John G. Mattingly's commitment and diligent work in clearing the county roads for safe school bus travel. We were very pleased to return to school Monday, Feb. 9, after 10 consecutive days of school cancellation. This was made possible because you placed in high priority the resumption of education of our children as soon as possible.

  • Mr. Perry goes to Frankfort

    Ron Perry, 60, of Lebanon was kicked out of a basketball game at Marion County High School Jan. 23, 2007.

    That incident has triggered a chain of events that has continued for two years, and may end up with Perry testifying before the Kentucky House Health and Welfare Committee later this week.

    On that night more than two years ago, Marion County Sheriff's Deputy Jimmy Clements arrested Perry for second-degree disorderly conduct and third-degree criminal trespass.
