Today's Opinions

  • Abolish the death penalty

    Currently, I’ve become aware of the increase in advocates for the abolition of the death penalty in Kentucky. What a sensible development that is. It makes so much more sense than the current state law that allows people to kill people as a punishment for killing people. The logic of that stance is impossible for me to understand. Where then does the punishment for killing stop?

  • The Workforce Crisis Task Force: Crisis response in action

    Kentucky is enjoying economic growth, and the state continues to be home to successful established businesses as well as a hub for emerging entrepreneurs and start-ups.  

    The opportunities for Kentucky and the Lincoln Trail region are limitless, but the constraints on realizing those opportunities are real. Specifically, we face a workforce shortage in part due to this economic growth in so many sectors.

  • Does Lebanon need more?

    Sometimes, you look at an issue or need… a problem, and you think of all the ways in which you can solve it. Sometimes it is an easy fix, and other times… you just don’t have a straight answer. 

    Here at The Lebanon Enterprise, we’ve been working on an editorial about a concern—or complaint depending on how you look at it, about Lebanon itself. It is a concern that has been brought up to us numerous times, which instead has turned into a hundred more questions.

  • Apathy is a public nuisance

    One of my biggest frustrations as the publisher of The Lebanon Enterprise is when a legitimate problem and/or concern is brought to my attention, the newspaper reports on the problem to educate the community, but then nothing is done. 

    The newspaper itself can’t solve the problem. 

    I fully understand that. 

    That’s not the newspaper’s responsibility.

  • Keep Marion County beautiful, stop littering

    Garbage, trash, waste… Whatever you want to call it. There’s a proper place to dispose of it and it’s not on our county roads!

    It completely amazes me the amount of litter found on the roads of Lebanon and Marion County. Whoever said it was right to discard your trash/garbage on the side of the road? Not only is it illegal to litter and/or dump it also goes against the core of our existence as human beings.

  • Montgomery making Marion County proud
  • Legislative update: Budget outlines pressing needs

    While House and Senate leadership continue to work on a revised pension bill, attention has shifted to the budget situation facing our Commonwealth. We recently heard the governor present his budget outlook in the State of the Commonwealth address, where he outlined the fiscal challenges we are facing, while also delivering some good news.

  • Our neighbor Makers Mark

    Some of the black on our houses, storage buildings, driveways, patio, etc., is caused from aging of whiskey in the warehouses. Ninety-five percent of the black on our houses and buildings are caused by spiders, spider webs, wasps, and many other insects; trees, dirt in the atmosphere, rubber tire wear and fuel used in our automobiles are part of the blackness.

    Burning brush, trash, grass burn off also contribute to the blackness. The whiskey aging is the least contributing to the blackness.
