  • Pancakes are perfect for breakfast or dinner


    Sometimes, I like to fix breakfast for dinner. My mom used to do this every couple weeks, and Dad and I really liked it. Our favorite was pancakes with syrup along with bacon and/or sausage. We also enjoyed fresh fruit in season, but the pancakes were the thing. My dad could eat a huge stack!
    Here are some good pancake recipes you might like to try.

  • Shortening the breeding season


  • ‘Enough said’

    In the 17 years I’ve worked at The Lebanon Enterprise, I’ve definitely grown thicker skin. It’s a necessity in this business, especially in the age of social media. While I admit, criticism can still sting, I’ve learned how to brush it off more easily. However, I can’t begin to imagine how my father would have handled critical comments about the newspaper on Facebook or Twitter.

  • Festival season: It’s better in the Bluegrass

    Kentucky is a state enriched with interesting history, heritage and numerous fall festivals. Every weekend seems to bring a fun event celebrating a Kentucky tradition rooted in music, arts, food, spirits, sports or the outdoors.

  • FOOTBALL: ‘We’re not going to go backwards’

    Garrard County’s run game is not pretty and flashy by any means.

    When it gets rolling, though, it’s effective.

    The Golden Lions delivered four touchdowns — all on the ground — in a 24-12 win over the Marion County Knights on Friday at John J. Boswell Field.

    “Give them credit,” Marion County Head Coach Rob Reader said. “They run the ball really well. They’re big. They’re strong. It’s not pretty, but what they do, they do well. You got to give them credit. Hats off to them.”
