  • Rineyville residents could see lower insurance rates

    Residents in Rineyville may experience a drop in their insurance rates after its fire department successfully lowered its ISO rating.

    An ISO rating is a measure of the quality of service a fire department provides to its area and plays a role in insurance companies’ decision-making processes when setting rates. The lower the rating, the better, said Byron Smith, assistant chief at the Rineyville Fire Department.

    The volunteer department lowered its rating from 7/9 to 5/8b, which Chief Shane Crutcher called a “substantial” drop.

  • Salvation Army bell ringers need late push to meet goal

    For the Salvation Army Bell Ringer program to meet its goal of $58,000, it will take more volunteers and more donations before the campaign ends Dec. 24.

    “We are still taking volunteers,’’ said local director Marie Inmon. “We are only about halfway to our goal and we only have about a week and a half left.’’

    After $57,000 was donated in the Salvation Army’s red kettles last year, the agency pushed the goal to $58,000 this year. It will take a late rush to reach the goal now, Inmon said.

    When the boys were small, it was easier. We just scooped them up for our annual visit to one of my siblings’ homes for Thanksgiving, toys and hand-held video games in tow. Even when they were in college, we would pick them up Wednesday afternoon after classes on our way to Washington, D.C., where we would join cousins who would wait up for us to arrive after midnight the night before Thanksgiving.

  • Alcohol ordinances put cities to test

    ISSUE: Local alcohol regulations
    OUR VIEW: Cities have been busy

    When local voters decided in October to relax alcohol sales in Hardin County's three largest cities, the work of getting it done came to rest with the city governments.

    The question on the ballot was quite simple: Do you favor the sale of alcoholic beverages? As usual, the process of implementation is not at all simple.
