    Fellow blacksmith Bruce McGuffin already had hammered on the spike to begin transforming it into a tomahawk. Williams picked up where McGuffin left off, heating the metal, striking it until the glow left and repeating.

  • Elizabethtown man indicted on burglary charge

    An Elizabethtown man was indicted in Hardin Circuit Court this week on a burglary charge.

    According to the indictment, Lavery committed burglary Aug. 15 when he forced entrance through the back door of a residence on Canary Drive with two other juveniles with intent to commit theft.
