    School board faces challenging times

    It’s safe to say that local elected leaders have seldom faced a year like 2009 and the outlook for 2010 is equally challenging. The members of the Elizabethtown Independent School Board of Education have worked to preserve the district’s ability to educate our children in the face of a massive state budget shortfall and tough economic times at the local level.

  • Jan. 20, 2010 editorial: Many hands make light work

    The squeaky wheel gets the grease or the ringing bell gets the donation as this past year’s Salvation Army Kettle Campaign demonstrated.

  • Jan. 15, 2010 editorial: Meeting justice needs of the mentally ill

    A fire damaged a physical link to American history but the resulting court case began a process that puts Hardin County on the leading edge of legal precedent.

    Criminal charges involving the mentally ill often serve to confound the justice process. Dealing with the special concerns of those defendants led to creation of the new Hardin County Mental Health Court.
