    ISSUE: Heartland Interfaith seminar

    OUR VIEW: Well-timed, important topic


    The absence of knowledge many times is a prevalent source of fear. If the veil of the unknown is lifted and realities illuminated, it can make a difference.

  • Uncasing ceremony planned for 100th Training Division

    The 100th Training Division, the last major unit to move here as part of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure initiative, will uncase its flag at a ceremony at its new headquarters at Boudinot Hall on Fort Knox at 3 p.m. Saturday, signifying its official arrival to Fort Knox.

  • WULF-FM’s signal silenced temporarily

    The hits of Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum are off the air — at least at 94.3 on the FM dial — as WULF officials try to find out what caused its transmission line to burn out.

    “This occasionally happens to radio stations,” said Bill Evans, general manager of the station.

    The station is in the process of having the problem repaired, he said. Evans hopes the problem will be resolved within the next 48 hours.

  • JHHS to host Day of Service

    A local high school is imparting lessons to its students even on the weekend.
    John Hardin High School will participate in the school’s third Day of Service event Sept. 24. Students sign up for volunteer activities around the county and spend that Saturday working on whatever is asked of them.
    Agriculture teacher Brandon Davis was inspired by a similar event at a national FFA convention.
    “I’ve always been kind of a community service fan,” Davis said.

  • Absentee voting opens for wet/dry election

    Hardin County Clerk Kenny Tabb said some residents were attracted to his office during the final days to register for the Oct. 4 wet/dry election, but he would hardly classify it as a surge.

    “We had a few people, but that’s about it basically,” he said.

    Tuesday was the final day to register as the cities of Elizabethtown, Radcliff and Vine Grove prepare for an election that could relax alcohol standards to some extent in each city if residents vote yes.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Elizabethtown preps for Evans, unbeaten Mustangs (09/08)

    For the record, the name of the North Oldham Mustangs’ star running back is Zach Evans, not Bob. But unless the Elizabethtown Panthers finally figure out a way to stop the run, Elizabethtown’s Doug Smith Memorial Stadium might as well be Evans’ big red farmhouse when the increasingly familiar rivals clash again at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

    Evans, a senior halfback, is coming off a 158-yard, two-touchdown effort in last week’s 43-14 thrashing of visiting Christian Academy-Louisville to up his season totals to 334 yards and six touchdowns on just 34 carries.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: Bruins get 'first test' of season (9/8)

    The Central Hardin Bruins realize what’s at stake this week. The Bruins are off to a 2-0 start, posting impressive wins over inferior teams – or at least Central Hardin made those teams look that way.

    But Friday night, the Bruins play at Louisville Butler (1-1). It’s Central Hardin’s first game against a Class 6-A opponent this season and the eighth-ranked Bruins understand this game will be used as a measuring stick to see if they’re as good as their ranking and record say.

  • OPINION: Locals live out MLB dreams (9/8)

    Last year at this time, Hardin County didn’t have a single player in Major League Baseball. And it looked like it might be some time before that changed.

    Nathan Adcock was just finishing a season in high Class-A with the Bradenton Marauders, a Pittsburgh Pirates affiliate. Stevie Delabar was out of baseball after another serious arm injury.
