  • County's animal shelter plans progress

    Plans for a larger and more modern animal shelter in Hardin County are progressing.

    PAWS Shelter Foundation Inc. is developing floor plans to renovate an existing building at 220 Peterson Drive in Elizabethtown.

    The vacant 17,000-square-foot building was purchased in October to offer a new facility in which Hardin County Animal Control can operate with animal health and adoptions more easily provided.

    Much of the inspiration for the plans comes from the Lexington Humane Society’s shelter.

  • On-campus housing: A good step for college freshmen

    While academics rightly take the forefront in discussion of colleges, where the student will live once on campus is an important aspect in applying for college.

    Most colleges require students to live on campus for some period of time, but even if they don’t, it’s a recommended way of blending into college life.

    Myra Lewis, a senior counselor at Central Hardin High School, encourages students to live on campus the first year.

  • Students should shine in college applications

    Applying for college takes some preparation. Students must follow deadlines and have spent their high school careers building experiences that can translate to a well-rounded resume that will stand out to admissions officers.

    Timeliness is an important aspect of the admissions process, said Tanya Corder, a senior counselor for John Hardin High School. Corder tells students it is best to apply as early as possible, because it allows them to get responses sooner, consider financial aid options, apply for housing and take part in student orientation.
