  • New generation introduces new enjoyment

    It was not supposed to happen.

    I was against it. Firmly, against it. I didn’t like it, I didn’t believe in it and I didn’t want to be a part of it.

    But now I’m in. Even before the first day of summer, I already have filled several weekends and a few evenings watching youth soccer.

    It doesn’t sound like a big deal. But an aversion to the soccer culture could be a generational bias. Growing up in Vine Grove about five decades ago, soccer was not on the radar.

  • Relay for Life: Hope on the horizon

    Ben Bryan of Elizabethtown marched around lighted bags bearing the names of people who have or are battling cancer.

    Bryan had read names during the Relay For Life Luminaria ceremony for several years. Last year, when he read his best friend’s father’s name on the list those who had died of cancer, Bryan decided this year was the time to put together a team.

    He said recruiting participants for Elizabethtown’s Relay, which took place Friday and early Saturday at Central Hardin High School, wasn’t hard.

  • Tables turned on deputy jailer

    An ongoing investigation at the Hardin County Detention Center put a deputy jailer on the other side of the bars Friday.
    Randall Jackson, 24, of Elizabethtown was arrested at 1:30 a.m. Friday at the jail and charged with promoting contraband within the facility.
    Jackson, who has been employed at the jail since September, was terminated, Jailer Danny Allen said.
    According to the arrest citation, Jackson exchanged tobacco products and marijuana for money and other favors. The citation says Jackson admitted to providing marijuana to inmates.

  • Stray animals deserve public’s best effort

    WANTED: A large building that can house Hardin County’s growing stray animal population so there won’t be another 2,300 dogs and cats euthanized like last year. Also, some land around the building to let the animals run around and have some fun would be nice as well.
    These are difficult times for the Hardin County Animal Control facility on Nicholas Street in Elizabethtown. The county’s continued growth is not without an increased pet population that needs help.

  • ‘Temporary’ barracks finds permanent home

    A new exhibit at the George Patton Museum of Leadership will allow visitors to take a trip back to World War II-era basic training.

    A crew spent several hours Friday hauling the only remaining barracks on Fort Knox from that era on a winding seven-mile trip across the post to the museum.

  • Standoff ends peacefully

    A Radcliff man was arrested Friday night after he refused to allow police responding to a disturbance report into his home.
    Robert Rowland of  262 Shelton Road, was taken into custody at his residence on charges of terroristic threatening and disorderly conduct.
    Bryce Shumate, spokesman for the Radcliff Police Department, said Rowland threatened to shoot his neighbors and then threatened to shoot police if they entered his home.
    Officers received a call about Rowland’s behavior at about 7 p.m, Shumate said.

  • PREP SOFTBALL ROUNDUP: Central Hardin ups record to 26-4; Elizabethtown thumps Moore (05/15)

    The 12th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins led the Louisville Assumption Rockets, 2-1, in the third inning before lightning halted their championship game Saturday night of the seven-team Crusade for Children Tournament at Assumption.

    Central Hardin (26-4) was awarded the title trophy because of scoring difference.
    -- In a 6-2 win over Louisville Sacred Heart in Saturday evening’s semifinals, senior Kristina Krupinski went 4-for-4 with two doubles and scored twice.

  • PREP SOFTBALL: Central Hardin cruises past LaRue County (05/15)

    Before the season began, the LaRue County Lady Hawks weren’t scheduled to host the 12th-ranked Central Hardin Lady Bruins.

    After Friday night, the hosts might have wished they hadn’t changed their minds.

    Senior Kristina Krupinski threw five shutout innings, senior Ashley Hughes reached base seemingly at will and junior Abbi Goedde had the big hit in the Lady Bruins’ five-run fifth inning as runner-stranding Central Hardin eased past its 5th Region rival, 9-1.

    RAIN, RAIN, STAY AWAY. The weather has been a little less wet this week. Hopefully the spring rains will ease a bit for a while.
