    Change is constant.

    It’s actually the only thing in life that is. Just as a routine begins and life seems to settle, there’s a bump in the road and everything is thrown off course.

  • Volunteerism fills retiree’s time

    Joyce Mercer of Vine Grove never thought when she retired that she would continue working for no pay.

    She decided she wanted to give back to the community after she and her husband sold their dry cleaning business in Vine Grove in 1990.

    Mercer began volunteering at the greeter’s desk at Hardin Memorial Hospital, where she has pitched in for more than 25 years.

  • Narcotics investigator teaches residents about drug abuse in Hardin County

    In 1968, when law enforcement officers discovered the first methamphetamine lab in California, it was just that — a laboratory. Those manufacturing it truly were chemists.

    Today, the majority of methamphetamine production takes place in a portable lab, but it’s not really a lab. It’s a plastic soda bottle, Sgt. Billy Edwards told Elizabethtown Police Department’s citizen police academy last Monday.

    SPRING WEATHER. I have really been enjoying this unseasonable warm weather, even though it brings on a bit of anxiety because of a greater chance of storms. But the weatherman isn’t predicting any severe weather in the forecast. My deepest sympathy goes out to the many who lost everything they had, even family members, due to the tornadoes in the area.
