    For Wednesday's Woman

    Americans look forward to summer vacations, camping, family reunions, picnics and especially our nation’s birthday on the Fourth of July.

    Summertime, however, also brings fires and injuries due to fireworks and outdoor grills.

    According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, every year nearly 10,000 Americans are injured by fireworks and almost 5,000 are injured by charcoal/wood-burning and propane grill fires.

    June 11 is the beginning date for the World Cup soccer tournament, which is hosted this year in South Africa.

More than 100 nations competed to earn the right to be among the 32 teams participating in this year's tournament. It is a two-year qualifying process for this once-every-four-year event.

    The United States will be well represented by its national team.

  • June 16, 2010 editorial: Questioning snap judgments

    As citizens, we depend upon the police departments of our cities, the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office, and the Kentucky State Police to enforce the law. These frontline troopers, deputies, officers and their leadership ranks work exceptionally hard on a daily basis to maintain proper order and peace. Quite often, they sacrifice their personal safety in doing so, putting their lives on the line in service to the public.
