     The sun’s coming up and it’s still as a grave at midnight. (Now that’s descriptive.) In the squirrel woods, the world is in the process of waking up.

  • City workers replacing grates in effort to combat flooding

    Late last month, city employees removed debris from a collapsed section of the storm sewer line at the intersection of Main Street and South Spalding Avenue as part of the effort to reduce flooding in downtown Lebanon.
    In spite of their efforts, some downtown businesses still experienced flooding as a result of an Aug. 11 rainstorm.
    City Administrator John O. Thomas said Lebanon received 2.4 inches of rain in 22 minutes during that storm. That's a rate of more than 6.5 inches per hour.
