Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Helping lost treasures get home

    Have you ever put on a jacket you haven't worn in a while, reached in the pocket and found a few bucks? I've never found more than $5, but still, it's a nice surprise. There's a chance there is another surprise waiting for you at the Kentucky State Treasury.

    State Treasurer Todd Hollenbach was in Lebanon last week to announce that the treasury's Treasure Finders program would be coming to Lebanon tomorrow, May 6. Treasure Finders is a program of the Unclaimed Property Division of the State Treasury.

  • Respectfully silent

    While friends and family of the late Sgt. Randy Sigley were stopping by Bosley Funeral Home to pay their respects Sunday morning, a small group was gathering in the parking lot across the street.

    The Patriot Guard Riders of Kentucky were going over their plans.

    They would stand silently holding American flags as visitors arrived at the funeral home. Later they formed similar lines at Lebanon Baptist Church, where Sgt. Sigley's funeral service was held. And at the Lebanon National Cemetery, they formed a ring of flags as the final prayers were being read.

  • Letter-Roadblock for Diabetes

    Editor's note: This letter was inadvertently left out of the April 28 edition.

    It is that time of the year for the American Diabetes Association Step Out walk at Keeneland Race Course.

    As a fund-raiser in honor of our grandson, Parker Thomas, we will again be having a roadblock on Saturday, May 1, to raise money for our team, Scoop's Crew. In the past, the people of Marion County have been more than generous at our roadblock and we are asking for your help again.

  • Lack of budget is frustrating

    The General Assembly adjourned the 2010 General Assembly Session without finalizing a budget. It is a matter that has caused much frustration and even anger. People should be mad. The fact of the matter is that the Senate would not agree to a fiscally unsound budget proposed by the House that raised over $280 million in taxes and bonded over $1 billion in projects that we cannot afford.
