  • A bit of Glen Dale

    The Glen Dale Center in Elizabethtown is nearing completion of a memorial garden meant to preserve the memory of the organization’s facility in Glendale.

    ISSUE: Hardin County's health
    OUR VIEW: There’s room for improvement

    Earlier this month, the County Health Ranking listed Hardin County as the 15th healthiest of Kentucky’s 120 counties.

    Although the county dropped from its rank of 14 in 2011, there were some good nuggets — and not the fast-food kind — to be found in the report.

    For example, Hardin County’s rates for premature death, excessive drinking and motor vehicle crash deaths were lower than state averages.

  • Memorial to fallen soldiers revealed

    The memorial features a bronze battle cross formed out of a helmet, gun and boots surrounded by a granite wall.

    EASTER. Easter has again come and gone. I certainly hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful day we had and gave thanks as they worshiped at the church of their choice. “He is Risen” from death unto life, after suffering the most terrible death possible, that we might have life everlasting. I am so thankful that we still live in a country where we can still speak openly as to our religious beliefs without being killed or tormented. We are blessed.
