Opinion

  • Some of the black on our houses, storage buildings, driveways, patio, etc., is caused from aging of whiskey in the warehouses. Ninety-five percent of the black on our houses and buildings are caused by spiders, spider webs, wasps, and many other insects; trees, dirt in the atmosphere, rubber tire wear and fuel used in our automobiles are part of the blackness.

    Burning brush, trash, grass burn off also contribute to the blackness. The whiskey aging is the least contributing to the blackness.

  • Last week in my column I had revealed that I had adopted a Jack Russell Terrier named JoJo, but the adoption did not work out.
    We’ve always had a dog in the house growing up, which I know is a little “odd” because since living in the south, I’ve learned that is more common for dogs to be kept outside. I think a lot of it has to do with the much, much colder temperatures in Michigan.

  • The threat of extreme winter weather conditions caused us to call off session in Frankfort on Friday, but not before we passed significant bills in the Senate earlier in the week. We hit the ground running during the second week of the 2018 session. Standing committees met to discuss and pass bills, which then went to the Senate floor for a full vote.

  • Legislature must find additional revenue
    While the discussion in Frankfort lately is about pension reform, many believe the far more serious problem is the unfunded liability in each pension plan.

  • Maker’s Mark Distillery describes itself as Loretto’s “slice of heaven.”
    But, some residents in Loretto would strongly disagree with that description.
    All they see is black from the “warehouse fungus” that’s growing on their homes, cars, lawns, patio furniture, road signs, etc. And the news of Maker’s Mark expanding and building more warehouses (although we’re not sure where yet) is alarming for many residents, to say the least.

  • Hello! My name is Emily and I am proud to be joining the Enterprise as the new reporter!

  • It’s the season of giving, and there are some simple ways to make a big difference for your neighbors. Over the holidays, consider digging into your closets, taking a look at the things that are no longer useful or adding value to your life, and consider donating them to Goodwill.

    As a resident and elected official within the Lincoln Trail region - comprised of LaRue, Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, Marion, Meade, Nelson and Washington counties - I see so much of which to be proud, and without hesitation, I include our region’s workforce development system among our points of pride.

    When I signed up to run for office just a short time ago, I had a strong desire to do all that I could to improve the quality of life in Green, Larue and Marion counties. After my first year as your State Representative, it is clear that our area has made great strides.

  • “They made the decision to mix these kids.”
    I cringed when I read that statement on The Lebanon Enterprise’s Facebook page last week.

    The purpose of The Kentucky Film Office is not to make movies but to create jobs and business opportunities for Kentuckians. The Film Office is an agency of the Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet. Together, we share an obligation to encourage private enterprise as it builds an industry in Kentucky.

  • I consider myself to be a good parent.
    I try really hard to teach my son to be kind, try hard in school, be a good sport and eat his vegetables (even if they are served with Pizza Rolls).
    I try to be a good parent, but I fully admit, I fail sometimes.
    Recently, I got a serious wakeup call and reminder that I need to step up my parenting game.

  • I would like to start this article by wishing each of you a Merry Christmas and thanking you for allowing me to serve as your state senator. This year has flown by starting with a productive 2017 session of the Kentucky General Assembly, followed by a busy interim break, new senate leadership elections, and talks of pension reform. Many of you have offered constructive feedback and opinions that I have taken to heart as we begin to craft legislation for the 2018 budget session.

    With 2017 coming to a close, many job seekers and potential job seekers are considering what they want to accomplish on the job in the coming year.
    Whether you are looking to get a new career on track, re-enter the workforce or move to the next level in your field, there’s probably one thing that rings true for every job search: It’s hard work. Yet, like so many other things, a well-researched plan will greatly increase your chances of success.

    There’s just something about the calendar turning over from November to December, which makes us feel a bit more charitable. Nonprofit organizations all across the area see a surge in generosity during this time, even from those who have already opened their hearts to those in need. Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland (FAKH) and our partner agencies are no exception to this.

    November is National Adoption Month, and though the month-long observance is an important conversation starter, it can’t fully convey the ongoing and unmet needs of children searching for their forever homes. During this season of giving and gratitude, the truth is that more than 7,000 kids in Kentucky will spend the holidays in the care of someone other than their family of origin.
