  • St. Baldrick's Day is March 14

    Soon many bald heads will be seen around Marion County.

    It's that time of year again. Time for Citizens National Bank's third annual St. Baldrick's Day event, which will be held Saturday, March 14, in the St. Augustine gymnasium.

    However, before the big hair shaving event arrives, CNB is sponsoring several pre-St. Baldrick's Day fundraisers in hopes of generating even more funds to help combat childhood cancer.

  • News staff is being unfair over email

    I am writing to express my displeasure with the manner that the staff of The Lebanon Enterprise have conducted a judgment of my receiving and forwarding e-mail.

  • Extremely poor judgment

    If you search for "white pride" in any Internet search engine, you'll return hundreds of thousands of results. You'll notice quickly that those results contain frequent references to skinhead, neo-Nazi and Klan organizations. Knowing this, maybe you'll understand why we were concerned when a local elected official sent an email to the editor of this newspaper with the subject line "Proud to be white."

    That email came from George Edelen Jr., a city commissioner in Bradfordsville.
