    Brunson’s ready to go in District 1

    I have known Curtis Brunson for a few years and have found him to be a man who strives to work hard as a business owner in Hardin County.  That tells me that he believes in economic development in Radcliff by doing and being an active citizen.

  • May 14, 2010, editorial: A big hooray for our heroes

    Hooray for Heroes in Radcliff started out simply enough for Randy Acton and Will Stolz.

    They wanted to show those who serve or have served our country that Hardin County appreciates their commitment to the United States and the sacrifices they have made in their lives.

    A “thank you,’’ we have learned, can go a long way.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL OPINION: Ditto makes her return for Elizabethtown (06/09)

    It’s been roughly a year since we last saw Darian Ditto on the basketball court, but that wasn’t her choice. The heir apparent in the post to former Elizabethtown High School and current Eastern Kentucky University star Alex Jones, Ditto was off to a solid summer in 2009 before a full ACL tear and partial meniscus tear in her right leg cut her season short before it ever b

  • May 12, 2010 editorial: Community combats cancer

    Maybe you have had cancer?

    Or maybe you have had a family member battle the disease?

    Maybe you know a loved one who has seen someone close to them succumb to cancer?

    Or maybe you know somebody who went eye-to-eye with it and beat it?

    Cancer is one of those words that is numbing because we all know overcoming it is not easy.

    This weekend at Central Hardin High School, hundreds of attendees will celebrate life and celebrate surviving cancer, while not giving up the battle against it for those who lost their lives to the disease.

    Sheroan for District 4

    A few years ago we, the voters of Hardin County, voted for a Fiscal Court consisting of three commissioners and the judge-executive. No offense to the commissioners, but at the first opportunity we wanted our local magistrate representation back and will soon have it. Bobby Sheroan is a lifelong member of our county. He knows the county, he knows and understands how to solve complex issues, and most importantly, he knows us.

  • Trying to shake a grudge against May

    I  used to like May.

    It’s a busy, fun time away from the inconveniences and discomforts of winter, past much of the spring storm season and not yet burdened by the blistering conditions of an Ohio Valley summer. Mild temperatures and reasonable humidity make the world grow and people go.

    But for the past few Mays, I’ve been trying to shake a little grudge against the month. It’s full of too many reminders of a painful event.

    Friday was my mother’s 70th birthday.

    Mollison for magistrate Like many voters I have become somewhat cynical about politics and politicians. So, I was very pleasantly surprised when a former military peer filed for magistrate in Hardin County. He does not fit the mold of what I would consider a typical politician. But, he certainly has all the qualities that are needed for public office. Unfortunately, I reside in a
