  • 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.”

    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.
