What’s good for the goose ...
So Elizabethtown city officials and council members are mad and disgusted at the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Service for the fee it is charging for the easement from Veterans Way to the back of Towne Mall.
Perhaps city officials should take a page out of their own book and do what they told Elizabethtown resident and visitors to do when they rammed an illegal restaurant tax down our throats: “Quit your whinin’ and cryin’, your moanin’ and your groanin’, and shut up and pay up!”
McConnell needs to go
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and his Congressional Republican comrades did everything in their power to make President Barack Obama a one-term president. It is good for America they failed. It is also good McConnell failed to become Senate majority leader.
Obstructionist McConnell devotes little effort and time working for the common good. He has to be one of the Senate’s all-time most politically partisan politicians. Plutocrat McConnell represents rich special interests and shows little, if any, compassion for the middle class and poor.
At a time when money in politics is a serious problem, McConnell makes the problem worse by supporting the Supreme Court’s “money is speech” and “corporations are people” rulings. Over the next two years, it will be interesting to see how he responds to an Obama second term. Will he lead or continue to obstruct?
I attended the Fancy Farm picnic this past August and was impressed by the brief speech delivered by Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. I like her energy and youthful enthusiasm. By 2014, it will be time to replace our tired, worn-out, out-of-ideas five-term Sen. Mitch McConnell with someone who has the progressive ideas to move Kentucky and America forward. Grimes might be the one to give McConnell a run for his money.

Thanks for the support
During this season of Thanksgiving, the Youth Theatre of Hardin County would like to thank the Hardin County community for the continued support we receive. Our 41-year history of being the oldest Kentucky youth theater program was only possible with the encouragement and support we receive from our many patrons.
This year’s production of “Anything Goes” was fun for our performing youth and their audiences. We appreciate all the many contributors – too numerous to list here, for without their generosity this production would not have been possible.
We appreciate the talents of this year’s director, Eric Pope, choreographer Carol Zagar, musical director Kimberly Strange, assistant director Kelsey Paschetto, production manager Justin Hornback and orchestra director Jesse Floyd. They brought us to the professional level audiences cheered about. Our gratitude goes to all the staff, orchestra, board members and volunteers who were necessary to achieve our goals.
We wish to thank the staff of Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School and the Hardin County Schools Board of Education who welcome us each summer into their great facility.
We appreciate the help of our local news media for the publicity.
Thanks to all those who supported us by attending “Anything Goes” and we want you to know you are the encouragement we need to continue providing Hardin County with quality performances to promote the performing arts in our area.
We also praise the young people who attended the workshops and those who were in our cast of “Anything Goes.” We thank you for the dedication and hard work to make sure your performances were the very best they could be.
Again, we are thankful for our Hardin County community and wish you a Happy Thanksgiving.
