Today's Opinions

  • Saving man's best friend

    The sparkle in Ellie's eyes said it all when she, along with 46 of her furry friends, were loaded onto the PetSmart Charities' Rescue Waggin' at the Marion County Animal Shelter last week.

    The big kiss she gave community service worker Scotty Johnson was also a clear indication of the puppy's excitement. And, in a way, that wet, soppy kiss was a big thank you.

  • Photos make time stand still

    Photos make time stand still.

    They capture moments in life and keep them in that very moment forever.

    Photos are treasures that I hold so dear to me, and apparently many Marion Countians feel the same. Within the past few months, we have been accepting photos for our first ever photo contest and to my amazement and utter glee we had 44 entries. Each photo submitted is unique and special in its own way. Each photo tells a story. And we plan to share those photos with you next week in The Lebanon Enterprise and on our web site.

  • Mistakes, pirates and YouTube, oh my

    Before I do anything else, I want to acknowledge a factual error in last week's column. In 1984, Ronald Reagan won an overwhelming electoral victory, but it wasn't against Michael Dukakis.

    Alert reader James Spragens notified me of the mistake. Reagan actually ran against Walter Mondale.

    I still stand by the premise of the column. I just wanted to acknowledge the error.

    - Speaking of errors, the unfortunate events that have affected Marion County High School for the past two weeks garnered the attention of Louisville and Lexington television stations.

  • Letters to the Editor, Nov. 26

    School, students, law enforcement went above and beyond

    As a parent of a student at Marion County High School, I want to commend the administration of the school and the school system, state and local law enforcement for the way in which they handled the recent tragic situation that was encountered by the school, the students and the community at large.

  • Pulling together in tough times

    Italics: The following column is a reprint of Marion County High School Principal Taylora Schlosser's comments during the Veterans Day ceremony held at the high school Nov. 14.   Thank you. It is an honor to be asked to close our Veteran's Day ceremony.

  • I see elephants wearing donkey suits

    Barack Obama made history in a number of ways Nov. 4. He is now the first African-American President-elect ever.

    He won the most decisive electoral victory since Ronald Reagan thrashed Michael Dukakis in 1984.

    And he's the first Democratic Presidential candidate to receive more than 50 percent of the popular vote since Jimmy Carter.

  • A Healthy Change

    Pizza parties, candy and soft drinks - that's what teachers have routinely given their students as rewards for exceptional performance and behavior. It's been that way for years.

  • Perfectly reasonable

    Marion County High School, indeed, all of Marion County was affected by the death of student Cody Greenwell Friday. Our hearts go out to Greenwell's friends and family as they cope with their loss.

    Unfortunately, Greenwell's death was intertwined with rumors that someone was thinking of harming students and staff at the high school. Those rumors were going around the high school Friday even both before news of Greenwell's death was known and over the weekend via text messages and the World Wide Web.
