Today's Features

  • The Hardin County Republican Women’s Club (HCRWC) will host Jim Waters, president of Bluegrass Institute for Public Policy Solutions, Kentucky’s first and only free market think tank at 6 p.m. Feb. 18, at Stone Hearth in Elizabethtown.

  • Nearly 200 area students disregarded freezing temperatures Monday for a chance to land a spot on “Treasure Island” when Missoula Children’s Theatre held auditions at Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School.

    The auditions attracted 192 children in first through eighth grades for the production that hits the PAC stage at 7 p.m. today and 1 p.m. Saturday. Between 50 and 60 children ultimately were cast.

  • Elizabethtown resident Anthony Abang comes from a family that includes many in the medical field, so it might have been a good bet he would join their ranks.

    Abang’s mother is a retired psychiatrist, his wife is a pharmacist, his sister and brother-in-law are in internal medicine, his brother is a pediatric dentist and his sister-in-law is a pulmonologist.

    But it was a spinal cord injury suffered by his father, an anesthesiologist, which led the 41-year-old to his specific area of medicine.

  • It is in the most difficult of times when true character is revealed. This is when you really begin to know what people are all about, how their hearts beat and who they share their hearts with.

    We are all faced with good times and bad. I have always believed to fully appreciate the good times you have to endure some bad times.

    Life often is unfair, as we know, but life is always good.

    KENTUCKY WEATHER. We got some measurable snow last week but it sure has turned bitter cold again. After all, it is still winter. We just have to grin and bear it. Just stay warm when going out. Also, might be a good idea to put a few blankets in your vehicle, just in case your vehicle breaks down or you get stuck in traffic.

    Winter is again upon us with a fury. Since I have not been driving since my eye surgery, I have started using Tack Transportation services for appointments instead of making a nuisance of myself asking others to take me places. This Tuesday, I had an appointment and had contacted Tack to take me and they called saying their services had been canceled because of the weather. I wasn’t looking forward to the risk anyway, so I rescheduled my appointment. Hoping for better weather next time.
