  • House's proposed boundaries divide Hardin six ways

    A House proposal redrawing district boundaries slices Hardin County into six pieces to pick up population and balance neighboring districts.

    Criticized as politically motivated, some say the plan dilutes Hardin County’s political voice as the region’s most populous county.

    Five of the six districts draw most of their population base from other counties. For example, the 53rd District would cover White Mills, Flint Hill and part of the precincts in Upton, Eastview and Stephensburg and stretches south as far as Metcalfe County.

  • Radcliff council clashes on conflict questions

    A dispute over a potential conflict of interest exploded as Councilwoman Barbara Baker and Councilman Edward Palmer locked horns during Tuesday night’s council meeting.

  • Radcliff appeals to residents for assistance

    Mayor J.J. Duvall called on Radcliff residents to contact members of Hardin Fiscal Court and ask magistrates to reject an ordinance under consideration that would mandate all trash generated by county residents be taken to the Pearl Hollow Landfill.
    Duvall said county government has the right to establish the mandate by state law but it could severely tie the hands of cities, making it difficult to find the best deal for their residents.

  • Piano teacher has long history hitting right notes for students

    For somewhere in the neighborhood of 55 years, Radcliff resident Nelda Lang has taught students of all ages to play piano.

    While living in Germany — where her military husband was stationed — in the early- to mid-’50s, Lang began offering piano lessons.

    “My mother played the piano, and all my sisters played piano,” the Mississippi-born woman said. “Everybody played piano. It was part of your schooling.”

  • Life or Something Like It: Speech-to-text messages provide laughs, confusion

    At the community college, our phone system has been synced with our computer system for about a year now.

    On the face of it, it’s a good idea for voicemail to show up as email. Instead of listening to a series of voice messages on your phone, you can see who called and get a speech-to-text translation of what the caller said.

    But I’m not sure Microsoft Speech Technology shouldn’t have spent more time in product refinement. Some of the messages I’ve read have made me scratch my head, and others laugh out loud.
