  • Hatred and hyperbole not needed

    In reference to Jim Waters March 11 column in The News-Enterprise, I would just like to voice my disagreement.

    My wife and I are both retired from Ford Motor Co. and belonged to UAW Local 862. I can tell you that our union president is not the godfather nor are we his “minions.”

    Without union representation, Ford Motor Co. would have run over us rough-shod just as Henry Ford did prior to 1941.

  • Burke retrial starts Monday

    After a week of questioning more than 200 potential jurors for the murder trial of Brent Burke, 15 people — six men and nine women — were seated Friday.

    Because the trial is expected to last about three weeks, Hardin Circuit Judge Kelly Mark Easton explained that three alternate jurors were selected in addition to the 12 jurors needed to deliberate.

    All 15 jurors will listen to the evidence and the final 12 jurors selected when testimony concludes will deliberate a verdict.

  • St. James places in state quick recall competition

  • KSP report released on triple fatality

    The official traffic collision report provides little new information on last month’s triple fatality on Interstate 65 near Glendale.

  • Secretary of State candidate to visit

    Democratic Secretary of State candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes plans to visit Hardin County on Monday.

    A release from her campaign said she will be at the Holiday Inn Express in Elizabethtown at 8 a.m. and later will tour the county with former Ky. State Rep. Mike Weaver, D-Radcliff.

    Grimes is a business attorney whose campaign platform revolves around business growth and economic opportunities.

  • Census: Local officials react to latest numbers

    Area officials were pleased but not surprised to see the U.S. Census Bureau recorded a 12.1 percent population increase over 10 years in Hardin County.

    Fort Knox changes have brought a lot of growth to the area during the past 18 months. The 2010 census only captured the beginning of the population surge expected from those changes, Judge-Executive Harry Berry said.

    An analysis conducted during the past 18 months almost certainly would show Hardin County at the forefront of growth within the state, Berry said.
