• Letter to the editor: Poor planning on behalf of school system
  • Corrections and clarifications - May 1, 2013

    A photo in last week’s edition should have read that Anne-Michelle Hughes, Ja’Kell Johnson and Aundaria Brown performed with the fourth grade during the Glasscock Elementary School student showcase on April 16.

    A story is last week’s edition should have said the Lebanon Main Street Committee is hosting a meeting at 8 a.m. May 8 on the third floor of the David R. Hourigan Government Building.

  • Corrections and clarifications

    In the April 3, 2013 edition, a wedding announcement for Justin and Brittney Clark should have listed his parents’ address as Bowling Green. Also, Daniel Gordon was identified incorrectly as Daniel Rakes.

    A news story in the April 3 edition should have read that Adrienne and Candace Tucker, both 19, of Campbellsville were cited for violations of the social host ordinance. They were not arrested.

    Kids like lettuce, too!

    Dear McDonalds,
    Hey, listen up!
    Why don’t you put lettuce on kids meals?
    It would go good with the cheeseburgers.
    You people have no respect for our health. Lettuce is VERY healthy.
    Put lettuce on them. You would probably get more money.
    PLEASE put lettuce on them.
    Write back! And I mean it.
    Your customer,
    Charlee Lawson
    Age 8

  • Letter: Heed the warnings

    You should watch the movie “V for Vendetta” and consider the content.

    You should watch the dud, “The Next Three Days,” and memorize the important parts.

    Remember that surrender of your freedom and rights invites brutality or death.

  • Letter: Donate to local community center

     The Community Service Center, Inc. was created by local churches to minister to the needy of Marion County. The First Christian Church in Lebanon is generous enough to allow us to work out of their building.  We provide emergency help with food, clothing, rent, utilities and prescriptions. We are a strictly a volunteer group using funds and supplies donated by some of the area churches, civic organizations and other generous benefactors. 

  • Letter: Dangers of government

    Comments from the “military press”:
    1. Dangerous government – “The power of government is great and, therefore, exceptionally dangerous.”
    2. Priceless – “Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him better take a closer look at the American Indian.” – Henry Ford
    3. The Second Amendment – “The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try and take it.” – Thomas Jefferson

  • Letter: Lebanon deserves better

    On March 13, on opinion page A6, an article entitled “Marketing Changes to Lebanon” it was stated rather than to promote Lebanon by name, the community was promoted with the phrase, “Bourbon, Coopers, and Moonshine Still.”
    I am one of eight sons born to Edna and Spencer Clark Sr..  I graduated from the former Lebanon High School with many fond memories of my school, church, and community.  However, I was completely astonished and disgusted by the article about my hometown.

  • LETTER: Community supports St. Baldrick's pre-event

    The first St. Baldrick's Music/Food Fest fundraiser in Loretto on March 9 was a huge success. Our goal was to raise $2,000, but after the final tally it was more than $5,000. Wow, what a night of fun, food and fellowship for a very worthy cause. Of course there were numerous behind the scene volunteers that deserve recognition also. I kept hearing what a great job we did, but the truth is, we were just the tools that our Lord was using. We had an angel in heaven, Renee Donahue, watching over everything we did. I think she was proud of it.
