  • Rose to be featured on two national 9/11 anniversary shows

    Elizabethtown resident Tony Rose has a different perspective than most on the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001, terrorists attacks on America.

    On that ill-fated Tuesday morning as he and many co-workers planned a retirement party for a fellow employee at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., American Airlines Flight 77, at a speed of 500 miles an hour, smashed into the Pentagon.

    About 200 people were killed at the Pentagon that day, including friends and co-workers of Rose’s, who then served as a U.S. Army sergeant major.

  • A fallen hero

    The morning of Aug. 28 seemed like any other at Michael and Alice Slaughter’s home off Constantine Road in west Hardin County. At 6:15 a.m., everyone was asleep in their beds.

    It wasn’t until the family’s chocolate lab, Jake, began barking excessively that they realized something was wrong.

    “He went haywire that morning,” said Melissa Heinly, the couple’s daughter who was at the house that morning.

  • Senior Life: Preparing for the unforeseen

    Once again, on my growing list of things to do, I have promised myself to organize and put important matters in order. Simplifying, organizing and planning ahead for unforeseen circumstances should be a priority for all of us. For those who have already made these preparations, I commend you. For the other procrastinators, like me, the time to start is now.

  • Today's fictional rewrite of history doesn't erase nature of regret

    Someone, somewhere is reading this today with a desire to rewrite their personal history.

    It's usually influenced by regret: A failure, a lost opportunity, a path not taken.

    Choices have consequences. For each time that we answer opportunity's knock, other doors slam shut.

    Even the wisest moves result in sacrifice. For example, a decision to study law is a worthwhile pursuit, but somewhere today there's a lawyer wondering what life would be like if an interest in architecture had been pursued instead.
