    A LITTLE SNOW. On Feb. 14, in the very early morning hours it began snowing. If the temperatures had been just right we probably would have gotten several inches but we only got possibly an inch or less. Hardin County Schools were delayed one hour. They have been very fortunate this year so far. Hopefully it will stay that way.

    NO SCHOOL. Hardin County Schools will be closed on Monday because of President’s Day.

  • Faces and Places: Marine House: A home for brotherhood

    It is fitting the Marine House in Elizabethtown is also a private residence.

    Hosting meetings of Marine Corps League, Perry Braden Detachment No. 402 every second Saturday of the month, the place — located at 4090 Bardstown Road — is like a home where family members reunite.

    “It’s like a brother and a sister,” Floyd Burkhammer said, referring to the relationships he has with other members.

    It was the only title the once-favored LaRue County Hawks would win on this night.

    Ray, a senior, beat Johnson Central senior John Conley, 10-6 to win the 182-pound championship in the finals of Saturday’s KHSAA State Wrestling Championships at the Kentucky Horse Park’s Alltech Arena.

  • Winter weather expected

    A winter storm is expected to cross into Kentucky and bring snow to the region.

    Forecasters say Hardin County will see rain changing over to snow today. The latest forecast says local accumulation will be a half inch. Snow is expected into the afternoon but south winds will push temperatures into the 40s.

    A winter storm advisory covering 35 counties stretches from Bowling Green to Ashland. LaRue, Hart and Nelson counties are included under the National Weather Service advisory but Hardin and other counties to the north and west are not.

  • Couple help preserve black history in community

    Brenda Tucker makes a point of learning something new every time she walks into the Emma Reno Connor Black History Gallery.

    The president of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority latched onto the words of Langston Hughes’ poem “Dreams” Saturday as the lesson she would take away from the collection.

    “Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly,” the poem reads. “Hold fast to dreams, for when dreams go life is a barren field, frozen with snow.”
