TOPIC: Kudos abound
OUR VIEW: Good things going on
Ten years ago, our country was hurting from the terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa.
The loss of 3,000 lives and our national sense of security have been long-lasting hurts.
In Hardin County, we used more than words to show that we will never forget. There were countless events remembering the lost lives of emergency service personnel and innocent residents of the United States.
We had children let go of balloons and others run in honor of lost lives. There were bells rung and tears shed.
Those who organized the numerous events around the county should be commended for their efforts. Certainly it was the right thing to do on the 10th anniversary.
8.9 AT 89. Omar McGrew has not let age get in the way of his goals.
McGrew turned 89 this week and he walked 8.9 miles to celebrate. The former marathon runner has stayed active since ending his marathons and now walks five miles a day, five days a week.
McGrew is proof that age is just a number.
CELEBRATION OPEN HOUSE. For 25 years, Lincoln Trail Behavorial Health System has been a cornerstone for inpatient and outpatient care for children, adolescents, adults and their families, and helped many with mental health and substance abuse issues.
From 2 to 4 p.m. today at the 140-bed facility on South Wilson Road in Radcliff, Lincoln Trail will host a celebration open house.
Our communities should celebrate with them. Families who have seen loved ones treated at the hospital know Hardin County is better for having Lincoln Trail at our doorstep for care.
TRAILER TROUBLE. The battle for a recycling trailer in Radcliff came to at least a temporary end recently thanks to the city’s partnership with Waste Management.
The service is scheduled to begin soon for residents to dispose of items such as bottles, plastics, cardboard and newspapers.
Mayor J.J. Duvall is hopeful the city, at the very least, could start offering the recycling service on a quarterly basis.
“As of right now, it’s no cost to the city,” he said.
