  • Cold case: Brother puts mystery 'in God's hands'

    After 20 years of wondering about his brother’s killer, Burt Lindsey thinks it’s time to leave the matter completely in God’s hands.

  • Stephensburg Day fosters community pride

    Bubby Grimes lives in Elizabethtown, but he still makes a trip nearly every Stephensburg Day to the town where he was born and raised.

    He was one of the visitors Saturday meandering around the track at West Hardin Middle School, which was lined with classic and customized vehicles submitted for the inspection of passersby.

    The car show is a major draw to the annual event.

    Grimes remembers seeing some of the classic car models when they were new and being young enough to admire  hot rods more than the sleek town cars he appreciates now.

  • Heartland Farmers Market offers only chemical-free produce

    A new roadside market has emerged in Hardin County that exclusively sells  local, toxin-free produce.
    Serena Erizer created the market as an option for buyers seeking food free of outside chemicals.

    “There’s a big difference and growing demand for this kind of food locally,” Erizer said.

    At a conventional farmers market, buyers who prefer toxin-free foods must ask each farmer about their farming techniques.
