    The rosters of Hardin County Schools and Elizabethtown Independent Schools increased after the districts held an annual draw to select students to attend schools outside the district in which they live.
    This year raised the total number of students attending EIS through the draw by 201, the limit assigned by the contract between the two districts.

    The King James Version of the Bible celebrates its 400th anniversary this year.

Skip Dunford believes regardless of how the most celebrated English translation of the Bible came to be, the important thing to remember is God used its conception to share his word with people in a language they could understand.
