  • Day made by a man of action

     It was a sunny day at lunch hour and steady traffic buzzed around Target in Elizabethtown. Hustling out the door, thinking of the next errand, keys in hand, I stopped short on the sidewalk.

    A woman was lying flat on her back in the parking lot, her feet inches from the storefront sidewalk, her motorized scooter straddling the curb.

    A child with her seemed to wonder what to do. Some older women had stopped and asked her if she needed an ambulance. She didn’t. More people came to help, but appeared not to know exactly how.

  • Radcliff police seek robbery, assault suspect

    Radcliff police are searching for an unidentified teenager wanted in connection to two assaults and a robbery the night of March 28 in the area of Elm Road and North Woodland Drive.

    Four men were walking together in the area when police said one of them “beat up” a man in the parking lot of an apartment complex. The suspect allegedly took the man’s cellphone before continuing north on North Woodland Drive.

    Police said the injured man was transported to Hardin Memorial Hospital where he was treated and released.

    A small crowd learned Tuesday about the importance of maintaining environments, from their own bodies to the earth.

    The program was aimed at observing Earth Day, which takes place later this month, and discussing environmental factors recognized as negatively impacting public health and how such issues are being addressed nationally.

  • Life or Something Like It: Recalling family history

    I had seen that the 1940 census was going to be released.

    After more than 70 years, that year’s official count of United States residents would become public record, opening up a treasure trove of records for genealogy buffs.

    With my 80-year-old uncle driving my 83-year-old mother back from her annual winter stay in Florida, perusing the records together when they arrived would make for a great night of story-telling about their teen years in New York.
