  • Do yourself a favor - take a kid...

    Happy holidays this X-Mas season.
    Now I don’t know about you but I think that’s a load of manure! This is a warning, if you’re easily offended you best stop reading right now… fair warning issued!
    Here’s wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!
    Yep, I said it. Felt no shame doing it and with very little regard to anyone’s delicate sensitivities!
    Oh yeah, “This does not reflect the views of The Lebanon Enterprise.”

  • Vaught’s Views: Makayla Epps...

    By Larry Vaught

    After some off-season issues, Kentucky junior Makayla Epps is becoming the player — and leader — that coach Matthew Mitchell hoped she would be when he had to discipline her.
    “That’s something that I have prepared myself for,” Epps said. “Coach Mitchell and I have talked about that. He said that the ball is going to need to be in my hands and I am perfectly fine with that. It’s just the trust he has in me, the trust my teammates have in me, and I trust in my coach and my teammates.”

  • Confidence vs. arrogance

    By Gerard Flanagan

    Can you tell when you see someone who's arrogant? They think they're better than everyone else, and they think of themselves as perfect. Worst of all, they're blind to their own mistakes and refuse to acknowledge them. It annoys us probably to be in their presence since they feel the need to establish their self-proclaimed superiority to everyone they see and they're just a drag on everyone else.

    "I gotta find some places to get my scoring from," Head Coach Kenny Mills said.
    The Lady Knights saw their lead reduced to a single point by the end of the third quarter, in which they only scored two points.

  • What’s the best hunting vehicle...

    First off I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! And so you’ll know it’s from me and not The Lebanon Enterprise, I guess I better put in the standard: “This message does not reflect the views of The Lebanon Enterprise or any of its employees”… except me! Now that I’m all “politically correct” I feel better… stupid for having to say that… but better.
    I was once asked what kind of “hunting vehicle” I have.

  • Vaught’s Views: UK quarterback...

    By Larry Vaught

    From the time he started playing sports, Patrick Towles was never a me-first athlete. No matter what sport he was playing, he was always team-first.
    Now for the first time, he’s had to make a selfish decision and put what is best for him first.
    That’s why he decided when the University of Kentucky’s football season ended that he would not return for his final season. Instead, the quarterback who grew up dreaming of playing for UK and started 22 straight games in 2014-15 will transfer for his last season.
