Where’s the protest
Health? A 29-year-old English lady late in her pregnancy begins to bleed. Her husband rushes her to the emergency room. There she sits crying and bleeding for three hours wondering if the baby, herself or both will be lost before being attended.
It’s coming near you if we don’t repeal Obama-non-care because many doctors will quit rather than participate and some won’t start that would have previously.
Health? Not content with getting rid of the unborn by abortion and by death panels for the old, Obama-non-care severely reduces the money currently allowed for special needs children. Gruesome.
Health? The X-rays in airport screening will increase cancer and the patdowns will harm small children psychologically. Those flying are telling the government that it is all right to treat me as a terror suspect, but don’t try to catch the enemies — it might hurt their little feelings. It’s as if a homeowner invites some guests to a party and frisks them for guns at the front door while the back door not only is unlocked, but open.

Soar with Hawkins
Congratulations on the unification of Hardin County’s chambers of commerce. What a great move forward for this area. Greatly motivated by BRAC at Fort Knox and future needs at the state level, this area was ranked No. 5 in the nation for past and potential/ future growth.
This letter is to qualify a major leader who has accomplished growth and community activities in making Hardin County recognized by this national ranking — Rik Hawkins, president of the Elizabethtown Hardin County Chamber of Commerce. His year at this position can best be reviewed at the chamber’s website, www. etownchamber.org. Two years ago I would have bet no one could unite the chambers. Rik did it in his first year at this position.
He brought Gov. Steve Beshear to this area for November Veteran’s Day salute to the troops. He launched an annual event, Cruisin’ in the Heartland, which brought thousands of people to Hardin County and downtown Elizabethtown. He organized the Heartland Festival week, with Vine Grove, West Point, Radcliff and Fort Knox all participating in honoring Vietnam veterans. This resulted in the largest parade/events activities seen in Hardin County.
Why search for anyone else for the united chamber president?
Rik Hawkins has proven in one short year he is more than qualified. He is the only choice for the new unified chamber’s president.
In doubt? Meet Rik Hawkins and see what kind of person he is. Naturally humble. Just trying to help the growth of this area. Want to know another great leader of this 2011 community? Meet the new mayor of Elizabethtown, Tim Walker. He has the same motives, to make this a great place to live, work and grow.
Everyone voice your opinions in moving forward in 2011 with Rik Hawkins.
Thank you Rik for bringing the “wow” factor back to this area in your first year and, hopefully, for many years to come.
