    Following the mass shooting at Newtown, Conn., I learned that there is not as much ground as I assumed between me and most gun rights advocates. Polls of National Rifle Association members helped me see this.

  • Dear Senator Higdon (and other Kentucky Republican Senators):

  • There are no red states or blue states! Only red, white and blue states!

    Editor’s note: Ron Perry is a Lebanon resident. What follows is his proposal for using casino gaming revenue to support the Kentucky’s horse industry.

    Under this proposal, profits from expanded gaming would be divided between casinos, the Kentucky United Horse Association and programs to aid the poor and disabled. 

  • Last week was significant as the first piece of legislation for the 2013 General Assembly was signed into law.

  • Early last month, just a few days into the 2013 Regular Session, Governor Beshear and numerous state legislators from both parties gathered in support of a major building initiative for many of our public four-year universities.

  • With the rise of socialist Babylon in the White House, it seems time for laws to protect Kentucky,
    1. A law making it illegal to occupy any part of Kentucky by unconstitutional U.N. actions or federal actions.
    2. A law ordering all Kentucky police officers to arrest any person, federal officer or U.N. command action troops who try to enforce unconstitutional laws to confiscate property or people within the boundaries of the state of Kentucky.

  • In the Feb. 6 edition of The Lebanon Enterprise, there was a mistake in the story about David Ray Clarkson Jr.’s struggle with mental illness. The story stated that in Kentucky if you have a Medicaid card it will pay for mental health treatment or substance abuse treatment, but not both. Actually, Medicaid pays for mental health treatment, but not substance abuse treatment.

  • For the first time in 11 years, Lynn Farris and Mike Thacker are bringing tuna back. (Not to be confused with bringing sexy back.)
    They are older.
    They are wiser (allegedly).
    And one of them has lost practically all of his hair.
    But, they’ve still got “it” on stage.
    I spent an hour with them Saturday and laughed with them (and at them) the entire time.
    So, what made them decide to bring the play “Greater Tuna” back to the stage?
