  • Berry proposes another lean budget

    Hardin County government will live lean for another year if Hardin Fiscal Court adopts Judge-Executive Harry Berry’s proposed budget.

    Berry has outlined a $30.4 million budget, about 2.1 percent larger than last year’s budget, which was one of the lowest in years at $29 million.

    Berry said Monday the 2012-13 budget is only about $600,000 larger than last year’s spending plan but the county is not expected to tap into its reserves.

  • Reality TV star visits E'town

    Amy Roloff knows about challenges.

    She stands chest-high to most women she meets, which has been the basis of social and workplace discrimination in her life.

    She didn’t used to keep posters on her walls or look through magazines.

    “I never wanted to look at anything that I never could become,” she said.

    Working to become comfortable as a little person has given her an appreciation of the challenges others faced.

    “To my world, everyone is big,” she said.
