  • Duvall: Criticism a motivator

    Incoming Radcliff Mayor J.J. Duvall faced his share of criticism during the campaign, but said he is moving on and using the experience as motivation.
    The 31-year-old Radcliff native defeated challenger Jo Emary during the November general election. He replaces Mayor Sheila Enyart, who leaves office after three four-year terms.
    Enyart was one of Duvall’s strongest critics during the campaign, questioning his qualifications and experience for the role. Enyart also pointed to his youth as a disadvantage.

  • Census' local impact uncertain

    Kentucky’s population grew 7.4 percent over the past decade, protecting the state’s six congressional seats, the U.S. Census Bureau reported on Tuesday.
    U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie’s office said in an e-mail it does not yet know how this first batch of 2010 Census numbers might affect the 2nd Congressional District, which includes Hardin County. Redrawing its boundaries to reflect population changes will be up to the state General Assembly.

  • Area chambers unified

    In a critical vote Tuesday, members of the Radcliff business community opted to unify Hardin County’s four chambers of commerce.
    Members of the other chambers — in Elizabethtown, Vine Grove and West Point — and their executive committees already approved the proposal. A “no” vote in Radcliff, where the proposal faced the stiffest opposition, would have left a large hole in the tentatively named Hardin County Chamber of Commerce.
