    The economic engine of the Fort Knox realignment may just be warming up.

    Hardin County Schools district has been saving money since 2003, not by cutting the budget, but by cutting down on energy consumption.

    HCS has been named the second most energy efficient school district in the state by the Kentucky Energy Efficiency Program for Schools. HCS has eight schools that have been given Energy Star status. Warren County Schools was deemed the most energy efficient with 13 Energy Star schools.

  • Radcliff council recommendations

    We have known for a while that the makeup of the new Radcliff City Council would have a drastically different look with three current council members either opting for different political paths or political retirement.

    J.J. Duvall is running for mayor of the city, Jerry Brown unsuccessfully sought a magistrate seat and Chuck Angus is retiring.

    We believe the choices below will offer Radcliff residents a solid council to make tough decisions in difficult times at a very important time in the history of the city.

  • Radcliff mayoral recommendation

    How can you go wrong in your choice for mayor of Radcliff?

    Both current city councilman J.J. Duvall and Radcliff Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jo Emary are capable of leading the city as Sheila Enyart exits office.

    What separates the two is experience of the day-to-day operation of a city. Duvall has it with two terms in the feeder system on council and Emary doesn’t.
