    The other side of the story
    First and foremost, I believe that the people of Lebanon are only hearing one side of the story when it comes to the actions that are currently being discussed in the English department at Marion County High School. I believe it’s time to hear from a student.

  • Kentucky budget deadline obligation of the job

    By The Kentucky New Era Editorial Board

The teacher sent a permission form home to parents and this semester a parent opted out for their student, so that teacher provided a different reading assignment for that student.
