  • Ask the expert: Nutrition

    If you are pregnant, recently had a baby, are breastfeeding or have a child younger than 5, you may be eligible for the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program, said Roxanne O. True, M.S., L.D., R.D., Director of Nutrition Services and WIC for Lincoln Trail District Health Department.

    The WIC Program was established by the United States Department of Agriculture more than 35 years ago to ensure pregnant women receive nutritious foods to promote growth and development of their babies and themselves.

  • Motherhood and More: Shedding the winter blues

    I think I might have had the winter blues. 

    With only having one car between myself and my husband at the moment, I wasn’t able to leave the house very much. I did try to take the kids outside as much as possible, but it wasn’t easy with the ridiculous amount of layers needed, and the inability to take a newborn out into the snow for very long. Everything had to be done around the littlest one’s schedule. And so we spent far too many hours inside staring out the window.

  • Spring planting catching up, not completed

    A few dry days last week allowed farmers to get a lot of corn planted.

    It will take another dry week for most area farmers to plant the rest of their corn, said Matt Adams, an extension agent for agricultural and natural resources with the Hardin County office.

    Many farmers likely planted 40 to 50 percent of their corn last week. Some also began planting soybeans then, he said.

  • Light day expected at the polls

    Voters can expect little if no wait at the polls today as Kentucky's major political parties select their nominees.

    A three-way race for governor on the Republican ticket highlights today's sparse ballot. Democrats will be deciding three races and Republicans four.

    No local races or issues are on the ballot.

    "Every precinct will have the same ballot," County Clerk Kenny Tabb said. "That's quite rare."

    The News-Enterprise

    The No. 12 Central Hardin Lady Bruins fell behind for the second straight game Monday, but it didn’t matter much to Baylee Sullivan.

    The sophomore pinch hitter cleared the bases with a double in the bottom of the sixth as the Lady Bruins rallied past the Louisville Butler Bearettes, 5-2.

    Seniors Ashley Hughes and Jordan Daniel had two hits each for Central Hardin (27-4), winner of seven straight. Eighth-grader Kelsey McGuffin had a hit, stole a base and scored.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Hawks hold off E'town, 6-5 (5/17)

    When LaRue County junior Kyle Meredith scored in the top of the seventh, it looked like an inconsequential run at the time.

    But it turned out to be the difference in LaRue County’s 6-5 victory over the Elizabethtown Panthers in a battle of 5th Region teams Monday night at Panther Baseball Park.

    “That’s playing heads up baseball,” LaRue County coach Chris Price said. “Kyle’s one of our best base runners. He read it well.”

  • PREP SOFTBALL: E'town tops John Hardin, locks up No. 3 seed (05/17)

    Mary Beth Russell, Brittany Daniel and Brianna Taylor knew exactly what was on the line Monday night.

    If the Elizabethtown Lady Panthers beat the visiting John Hardin Lady Bulldogs for the second time this season, they would lock up the No. 3 seed for the 17th District Softball Tournament. Lose, and they would be the No. 4 and be in the top half of the bracket with Central Hardin.
