  • Every day when I arrive to work and when I leave to go home, I see Kara Tingle Rigdon's face.

    For months, a missing person's poster has been taped on the Enterprise's front door that includes Kara's photo and information about her disappearance.

    This Sunday, July 17, will mark the one-year anniversary of when she was last seen.

  • When I first became the Animal Control Officer for Marion County back in March of 2007, I had no idea exactly what would be required to do this job. It was way more demanding than I could have ever anticipated. Even my animal background did not prepare me for the physical and mental requirements that are necessary in being an Animal Control Officer and operating an Animal Shelter.

  • The Lebanon Police Department would like to start a Block Watch program in your neighborhood, but we need the help of the good citizens of Lebanon. 

    Even though we patrol your neighborhood, we are only there for a short period of time. As a resident, you know better than anyone what is happening in your neighborhood.

    By meeting once a month in a relaxed atmosphere, this program will help the Lebanon Police Department to better serve the citizens of our community.

    My life has been awesome. I know that sounds like bragging, but it's true. I've taken great vacations, made so many great friends, had so many wonderful teachers and professors and had so many great opportunities.

    We all like to think of ourselves as patriotic and good American citizens.

  • Some people in our community decided recently to dump their junk at the City of Lebanon's recycling center on Woodlawn Avenue.

    The city has typically left the center open during the weekends so residents could drop off their recyclables - you know, things like aluminum cans, paper and plastic.

    Are you searching for your roots? The Marion County Public Library is blessed to have a well-stocked genealogy room on its premises. If you've not been in the genealogy room, allow me a moment to tell you about its contents, uses and how you can help out other researchers.

    Recently, before Father’s Day festivities began, I was attempting to pick out the perfect outfit: something casual, but also comfortable. I finally settled on a good pair of jeans and a nice orange t-shirt and went from there. I automatically assumed that I looked okay until a few hours later, when I went to a mirror to check. 

  • Drinking and driving is something I learned about at a very young age. In fact, I remember the very first time I was faced with it. I remember it like it was yesterday.

  • Christine Mattingly, Marion County and the state of Kentucky made their mark on Mobile, Ala., last week during the Distinguished Young Women National Finals. Mattingly was humble and classy, as always, while her Marion County fan club was loud and proud during the three-day competition. A busload of Marion County faithful traveled to Mobile. In fact, the state of Kentucky bought more tickets for the competition than any other state.

  • In high school, I remember studying for tests, going to the library to do research, writing papers and giving the occasional class presentation. I didn't come up with a new design for the expansion of a local library. I didn't invent an adjustable rifle sight, and I didn't try to develop a new way to carry my keys.

    But Marion County High School students have done all of those things during the past year.

  • We were shocked Saturday morning when we heard that Marion County High School boys basketball coach Anthony Epps had been arrested for DUI and reckless driving.

    Just last month, Epps pled guilty to reckless driving, stemming from an incident in October, when he was initially charged with DUI.

    At first we didn't believe it. We didn't want to believe it, but it only took a few phone calls to confirm that it was true.

  •  In an engagement announcement for Catherine Corbett and Charles Bruce Parkerson Jr., it mistakenly said Corbett attended Bardstown High School and is employed at Heaven Hill Distillery. Actually, Parkerson attended Bardstown High School and is employed at Heaven Hill Distillery.

  • The government child feeding program could be helpful if an earthquake or other disruptive situation happens.

    But isn't it the responsibility of parents to feed their children?

    If a family needs food stamps, are they not available to fill a need? Where does the family responsibility rest?

    It seems to be a conditioning feeding system to control or encourage more young people to rely on the government for their daily bread.

    It's the typical pattern: students graduate from high school, and parents and relatives will immediately give them advice about how to navigate the world of college. Which is great, except some of those who give advice have been out of college for years, maybe even decades. So, as a current college student, I thought I'd write a column with some up-to-date advice based on my two-year experience.

  • The Fifth Amendment says many things, but in the middle it says, “... nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb.” That means you can’t be put on trial twice for the same offense.
    Now in Communist China and dictator Syria, their courts put people on trial over and over until they get the verdict they want. It’s called jury shopping!
    Why does the Kentucky court system do the same thing? I guess there is a dictator and Communist connection.
