In Hardin County: 30 years ago, Sonora residents cleaned up debris and wreckage that resulted from what several people described as “swirling winds.” 20 years ago, Deborah King of Radcliff was shocked to find a utility pole behind her house had cracked below ground and fallen onto electrical lines but was even more disturbed after she was unable to get anyone to say they would fix the pole. 10 years ago, a mother and son were arrested for stealing $17,000 worth of property from the Hardin County Landfill.

One year ago, about 200 Vine Grove volunteers were recognized at Optimist Park for the work they've put into the city which earned state recognition for having so many volunteers.
