Today's Opinions

  • The newspaper still matters

     This year marks the 17th year I’ve been working at The Lebanon Enterprise.

    And, while things have changed drastically with this newspaper during that time, there is one thing that hasn't changed.

    What we do here matters. And, we take it seriously.

    This week is Sunshine Week, which is an annual initiative to promote open government and access to public information.

    Freedom of information isn’t just a press issue. It’s a cornerstone of our democracy.

  • Tax reform addressed by legislature last week

     The pace of activity in the Capitol is picking up as we rapidly approach the end of the 153rd Regular Session. With only a few days left to pass bills, the Kentucky General Assembly has been working in overdrive to develop the best legislative policy for the Commonwealth.

    Many big issues have been addressed in this 30-day short session. Last week was one of our busiest weeks yet as bills concerning abortion, medical marijuana, and education had Frankfort buzzing with visitors to attend rallies and committee meetings.

  • Don’t record me in my time of trouble - help me

     Have you seen that show, What Would You Do? Where they stage real-world scenarios that are uncomfortable and often times, unsettling? It’s designed to make you think and also to see how everyday strangers, regular folks, react to situations playing out before them.

    In most scenarios you never see anyone reaching into their pocket and pulling out their phone to record what is happening, you see them reacting.

    However, oftentimes, out in the real world and not for television, people start reaching for their phones at the first sign of trouble.

  • A let down

    EDITORIAL

    Perception plays a huge role in our daily lives. It’s the ultimate way of understanding or interpreting something. Usually, our perception is based on what we see and what we hear.

  • Examining financial barriers to work

     Imagine you are a supervisor at a local business. Joe, a single father of two, is one of your most successful employees and has earned a promotion that will raise his pay from $15 per hour to $20 per hour. 

  • School safety bill could soon become law

    As we approach the latter days of the 2019 Regular Session, the Capitol remains as busy as ever. Countless visitors from across Kentucky advocated important issues in a week that had no shortage of legislative activity.

  • Children’s issues lead House activity

     I joined my fellow members of the House in passing several good, meaningful pieces of legislation this past week, all aimed at improving the quality of life for all Kentuckians. This was our last full week of this legislative session, with only eight legislative days left in the 2019 Regular Session.
