Today's Opinions

  • Executive's decision

    Jack Brammer of The Lexington Herald-Leader’s Bluegrass Politics blog reported last Friday that Gov. Steve Beshear has released the names of Republicans who are his “supporters.” The list of 70 GOP members who are endorsing Beshear’s re-election bid appears at the end of the entry.

    And the first name on the list is Lebanon Mayor Gary Crenshaw. (To read the full blog entry, go here http://tinyurl.com/3epwevf.)

  • Good to Grow

    The Heart of Kentucky Bourbon and BBQ Musicfest is good for Lebanon.

    And it has the potential to become something great.

    We know there currently are a variety of side issues related to tourism, the event and the event organizer, but let’s set those aside for a moment.

    Here are some of the positives we saw:

  • Correction

     A photo in the May 11 Enterprise from the Lebanon Elementary School Derby parade should have identified one of the students as Maggie Overstreet.

  • Letter: Think for yourself

    With children being arrested for toy guns, I think parents should take a serious look at their educational and authority structure and its training.

    Apparently, the democratic habit of questioning authority or conventional wisdom could place your or your children in  conflict with “The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders”, fifth edition (DSM-V) to be published in 2013.

  • Letter: Superintendent pick no surprise
  • Find your 'fur'ever friend at Adopt-a-Thon

  • Driven to succeed

    Peggy Downs is a special person.

    I learned that quickly as a teenager boarding school bus No. 173 every morning and afternoon. Every single day as I got on the school bus, Peggy always greeted me with a warm smile.

    However, one particular summer morning sticks out in my mind. 

  • Living with loss

    The trial of Adrian Benton began Monday. Benton is one of two men facing charges as a result of the death of John G. Mattingly III, a Marion County native and University of Kentucky student.

    The other defendant in the case, Raymond Wright, pled guilty while jury selection was taking place. He admitted that he pulled the trigger, and for that, he will likely receive life in prison.
