    What happens when you see a quarterback scan the field for an open receiver and throw it, only to see a defender a half second later pick it off. Most of the time, we just assume the quarterback didn't see him. We assume he completely overlooked him and didn't take everything in.
    He wasn't seeing the whole picture.
    What happened as a result? He threw a pick and cost his team a chance to score.

  • Guns aren’t dangerous, but...

    Just so you’ll know, what I’m writing about in this week’s article is my take on things. It’s not meant to express the views of The Lebanon Enterprise or anyone else.
    To be clear, I own guns! They are my responsibility and the misuse of them falls on me. And, over the years, no one has said anything about that fact nor, as far as I know, written a letter to the editor complaining about my guns or my hunting!

    No one enjoyed being at the Marshall County Hoop Fest last week more than 6-10 power forward Billy Preston of Advance Prep International of Dallas.
    “I love playing at Kentucky. We came last year to play at McCracken County. I loved both experiences. I love how the fans and whole city comes out,” said Preston. “Playing on ESPN is special and a blessing for a high school kid to be on national TV. It is exciting and I love exciting games, so it is all good for me.”
