Elizabethtown City Council member Ron Thomas said Floe Bowles was his first and best boss.
Bowles served as publisher of The News-Enterprise from 1975 until his retirement in 1987 and worked nearly 50 years for the paper and its predecessors, the Hardin County Enterprise and The Elizabethtown News. He also was a founding influence in the establishment of The Turret, a newspaper serving Fort Knox.
Bowles died in 2002 at age 90.
Thomas said Bowles was on his route when he delivered papers at age 15.
