  • A desperate decision: Suicide in Hardin County: Grief lingers long after death

    Michael Berry loved to fish, enjoyed eating banana pudding and passionately followed University of Kentucky sports.

    More than anything, he cared deeply about his family, always wanting to bring a smile to someone’s face.

    “He loved his nieces and nephews,’’ said his sister, Vickie Green. “He always wanted a family and kids. You felt like he had love for everybody.’’

  • Role of chamber may be redirected

    Brad Richardson wants to expand the role the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce plays in promoting and exploring initiatives for small businesses and local commerce.

  • New vocabulary word introduced nightmare images

    Remember relationships in grade school? Every classmate was your friend. Several were your best friends and a few were your very best friends.

    One morning in second grade, our teacher began class with a stark announcement. My best best friend was not in school that day. The night before his father had taken his own life.

    The teacher’s explanation was straightforward and detailed. Actually, too detailed. I also remember gruesome images from the nightmares that followed her frank explanation.

    No 8-year-old should know the word suicide.

    I have heard the saying all my life “It rained cats and dogs,” where it came from I have no idea. But I think the rain we had this past week measured up to that. Tuesday morning our rain gauge showed we had at least 3½ inches of rain. But we lucked out again and had no severe weather otherwise, as was the case in many places.
