  • The Hardin County Chamber of Commerce recognizes students from area high schools for their academic achievements and extracurricular activities by presenting them with an Academics Means a Better Community Student of the Month Award. At the March 13 chamber luncheon, Kendra Ball from Central Hardin High School receives the award from Philip Tabb, Hodges Auction/Gold Star Realty, this month’s ABC sponsor.


    I had the opportunity recently to visit with a dear childhood friend. We talked about many of our favorite memories and then she said, “So, tell me how things are going with Hardin County Schools.”

    My response was, “Wow. Where do I begin?”

    I honestly can say that in all of my 30-plus years as an employee of Hardin County Schools, I do not recall this level of energy and excitement. The number of awards is growing and the opportunities for our students increase with each passing day.

    The group recently was recognized by the Country Music Association as “Who New to Watch in 2013.”

    The trio of Tori Little, Sadie Loveland and Avery Eliason head up the band and are promoting their album “Saturday Night.”

  • In 1933, Irving Berlin wrote a song about an Easter bonnet “with all the fringe upon it.”

    While popularity of Easter headwear seems to have declined in some areas, Easter attire still is alive and well in many larger cities around the country, where holiday parades and hat contests abound.

    In Hardin County, the Easter hat gets somewhat less attention, though it is not completely forgotten.

  • First Christian Church of Elizabethtown is targeting June 2 as the opening Sunday in its new facility at 1807 N. Miles St.

    According to Stuart Jones, senior minister, construction is on schedule and the congregation is preparing for the move.

    “The goal when we started pouring footers last May was to complete the building in a year,” Jones said. “We have been blessed with good weather and great workers. We’re right on schedule.”
