    Last year, the residents of Hardin County signed a petition to revert our local government back to the Magistrate system. In November, a vote was cast to settle the issue and find what the people wanted. It passed by majority. Now, our current County Commissioners are about to disregard that majority.

    Second-guessing is a waste of time I have had it up to here with the hate/blame George Bush campaign. President Bush made mistakes, who doesn’t? However, he did not deploy our troops for no reason, and he was not callous to the suffering caused by war. He did his best to do his duty, as have most presidents. After Saddam Hussein was captured, he adm

  • June 9 Editorial: Higher education progress reported

    A report and a news release that arrived at The News-Enterprise last week together brought a glimmer of hope that poked through the billowing clouds of fiscal despair. Preliminary data provided by the Council on Postsecondary Education and an analysis published by the Kentucky Long-Term Policy Research Center showed that the state continues to make significant progress toward th

    Sorry for judging so fast I must admit when I saw the picture of the young man with the long hair, I, too, wrongly judged too fast. When I read the article, it touched my heart deeply. I lost my sister to cancer three months ago, and I, too, watched her loose her pretty hair. She did wear a wig, scarf, or hat, and continued to go places as long as she could. We were four sisters ver

Steve Beshear, who called the state lawmakers into action beginning next Monday, and his nemesis, Senate President David Williams, R-Burkesville, can’t even agree on the depth of the state’s financial problems.

    On the horse industry

    I am a Thoroughbred horse trainer. I don’t live in Kentucky, but I spend a good amount of time in your fine state throughout the year and it’s here where I have enjoyed some of the proudest, grandest moments of my life. As I watch racing in your state diminish, I am shocked at the lack of interest or concern on the part of legislators in the Bluegrass., the “Horse Capitol” of the world.

  • June 14 editorial: Hardin County has stake in session

    As Kentucky lawmakers converge on Frankfort Monday summoned by Gov. Steve Beshear to return to work for the second time this year, the piece of business getting the least attention is the one that would have the longest-lasting impact on the state’s economic stability and growth.

    A point on gases

    In an article published in The News-Enterprise  it was said that carbon dioxide was a dangerous gas produced primarily from burning fossil fuels.

    In the absence of air, carbon monoxide is a poisonous gas that is used in gas chambers to execute dangerous criminals.
