I received a call from Stephen at the Enterprise office, and my first thought was “What did I mess up?”
When he got on the phone, I was told this was one of the early deadline weeks (office was closed Monday).
“I knew that, but thanks for calling” was my response. That’s what I said. What I thought was, oh crap, forgot all about that!
So, here I sit, five days after turning in my last column, wondering what to write about.
Long-time Marion County teacher Mary Lewis has died.
Lewis, 69, was involved in a two-vehicle accident around noon Jan. 15 at the intersection of Depot Street and Walnut Street in Lebanon.
"It appears something happened to her before they even hit. She was slumped over when she crossed into the intersection," said Lebanon Police Officer Allen Corbett, who investigated the accident.
Katie George, a student at the University of Louisville, was crowned Miss Kentucky USA 2015 in Louisville on Saturday night. George is a member of the U of L volleyball team and this was the first pageant in which she had ever participated. There were 17 contestants.
Katie George is the daughter of Tim and Annie George and granddaughter of Dr. Salem and Eva George.
Marion Countians will mark Martin Luther King Day with a pair of events at 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 18.
That afternoon, the United Concerned Citizens Organization will host its annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. March, and the Marion County chapter of the NAACP is hosting its Dr. Martin Luther King Program at First Baptist Church.
The march will begin at the Lebanon Post Office, then proceed down Main Street, and turn right onto Depot Street. The march will continue to M.L. King Avenue, then turn right onto Spalding Avenue and end at the Lebanon Post Office.
