Today's Opinions

  • Job well done

    Sore feet, aching backs, and dry mouths from eating too much country ham... many Marion Countians are probably still experiencing their own version of a "Ham Days Hangover" after volunteering during the annual festival, which took place this past weekend.

    It's a lot of work for the Marion County Chamber of Commerce and its countless volunteers who spend all weekend working tirelessly so that more than 30,000 people can enjoy one of the top 10 fall festivals in Kentucky.

  • Small town girl

    Once upon a time, I had dreams of moving to a big city, living in a fancy studio apartment and working at a large, daily newspaper. But, some dreams aren't meant to come true, and I ended up moving back to Marion County after graduating from college and working for my hometown, weekly newspaper. I would be lying if I didn't admit that sometimes, actually quite often, I wonder what life would be like had I actually pursued those dreams rather than coming back to my small, country hometown. It would have been exciting, no doubt.

  • Campaign season is back again

    Like unsightly weeds, campaign signs are starting to pop up in yards across Marion County. No doubt, most sign-posters are sincere in their support of the candidates' whose names adorn their yards, but that doesn't make them any more pleasant to see. But that also means Election Day is coming. This year, it's Nov. 2. With today's edition, we begin our coverage of the 2010 general election.

  • DMB kicks off big, easy adventure

    It's been five years since Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans. Last week, I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit "The Big Easy" and, I can say with full certainty, New Orleans is alive and well. After hearing stories from my mother, who lived in the French Quarter in the 1960s, I jumped at the chance to visit the city with my friend, Ann, who won tickets to the NFL Kickoff concert featuring the Dave Matthews Band. And... Oh yeah... Some sweet, young gal named Taylor Swift.

  • Quran, Quran: No-no-notorious

    A pastor of a small Florida church made waves internationally after the national media picked up a story about his plans to burn copies of the Quran on Sept. 11.

  • '$15 extra' does matter to families

    I am not a person to normally write to the newspaper. But I was so upset this week that I have to express my concerns.

  • More questions than answers remain about pain clinic

    This week, The Enterprise is running a news story about Lebanon Medical Solutions.

    Working on this story has been an unusual experience for me as a reporter. Usually, when I do a story about a new business, the owners want people to know where they are and what services they are offering to the community.

  • The man we will execute

    Gregory Wilson is scheduled to be executed on Sept. 16, by signed "command" of Kentucky's governor. As Gregory is now a face on front pages and a topic of public discussion, I ask to put a face and character to the person who will be killed in the name of Kentucky's citizens. I bear witness that he is not the same man who committed the crime.
