  • BOYS' PREP SOCCER: Central Hardin gets offensive against Elizabethtown (09/09)

    After being anything but offensive their previous two games, the Central Hardin Bruins could have spent the week before their next outing focusing on finishing.

    Their scoring woes looked like they could continue at home Thursday night, but once the 21st-ranked Bruins got back on track against the Elizabethtown Panthers, not much could derail them.

    The Bruins broke away from a deadlocked game late in the first half with a flurry of goals and emerged with a rousing 7-2 win in a rematch of last year’s 10th District and 5th Region tournament finals.

  • IMI workers strike

    Several cement truck drivers and operators waited hours Thursday afternoon for their local union representative to return with news about a strike spread across various Irving Materials Inc. locations in the state.

    The strike rose during renegotiation of a three-year contract between the company and the union.

  • Teachers recall emotions of 9/11

    As the world stopped 10 years ago on Sept. 11, 2001, frozen in the aftermath of terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, educators in Hardin County juggled watching with guiding classrooms of children through an event some were too young to understand.
