    OUR VIEW: Child's legacy just beginning

    The life of Addison Jo Blair was short, but the impact on Hardin County and beyond is vast.

    People who didn’t know her showed up at fundraisers and wore yellow bracelets or offered prayers on her behalf.

    Her brief, difficult battle with neuroblastoma, a deadly pediatric cancer that produces tumors in the body and tumor cells in bone marrow, ended in May. When she died, Addison Jo Blair was just 3.

    For The News-Enterprise

    A pair of Mount Washington natives are ready to open a premier body modification studio next month in Towne Mall.

    Jason and Jeremy Cantwell hope to open a second Tatu location by Thanksgiving.

  • Cecilia elementary project could be pushed back

    The timeline for a new Cecilia elementary school may be extended by two more years.

    The Hardin County Schools board voted Monday morning to extend the time period of a purchase option for the proposed site of the new Cecilia elementary school through December 2013, in the event it must wait until David Miller’s lease for the land expires.

    Board Chairwoman Kay Sharon said the board was willing to wait that long to build a school on the land if the situation called for it.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Hinkle resigns as Elizabethtown's coach (10/25)

    When Tim Hinkle took over the Elizabethtown High School volleyball team in 2007, he had one goal in mind: keep the team’s winning tradition going.

    Hinkle did that and then some.

    He led Elizabethtown to its first appearance in the KHSAA State Volleyball Tournament in his first season – leading the Lady Panthers to the second round where they fell to Covington Notre Dame.

  • GIRLS' STATE SOCCER TOURNAMENT: Sacred Heart coach praises Central Hardin (10/25)

    Central Hardin Lady Bruins coach Hal Bender feels the Louisville Sacred Heart Valkyries are a mirror image of the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers.

    So to no surprise, the Lady Bruins are looking for a reflective result to their convincing 2-0 win over top-ranked Elizabethtown in last week’s 5th Region Girls’ Soccer Tournament final when the third-ranked Lady Bruins (21-2) and the No. 12 Valkyries (10-10-3) tangle in the first round of the state tournament at 7 tonight at Louisville St. Xavier.

  • GIRLS' STATE SOCCER TOURNAMENT: Haberman keeping up appearances in net for Central Hardin (10/25)

    Savannah Haberman blames her physical fitness — or rather, lack thereof — for the reason she started playing goalkeeper as a travel-ball youngster.

    But thinking back about how she got thrown into a position she loves and shines at, the Central Hardin junior can only laugh.

  • Occupying your place in distressed economic world

    Occupy in a Culture of Discontent
    “Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life
    Trying to make ends meet
    You're a slave to money then you die”
    --The Verve, “Bittersweet Symphony”

    The first time I saw one of the many people in the Occupy Wall Street movement holding a sign that said, “We are the 99%,” I thought, “That has to include me. I’m certainly not in the 1 percent.”
