    When the much-debated 2 percent restaurant tax was enacted Oct. 1, 2007, in Elizabethtown, we are certain those who contribute to that nest egg for various community projects didn’t expect some of the funds to be used for popcorn machines, an ice maker and a VCR/DVD player for the Historic State Theater.

  • PREP VOLLEYBALL: Central downs Lady Bulldogs (08/21)

    By GREG CREWS gcrews@thenewsenterprise.com CECILIA — The Central Hardin Lady Bruins don’t really have a go-to player, and that seems to be giving their opponents fits. Five Lady Bruins recorded a kill Thursday and three more had a block or an ace as Central Hardin defeated the visiting John Hardin Lady Bulldogs, 25-17, 25-20 in a 15th District match. “That helps a

    Growth should be managed

    I appreciate the fine job done by The News-Enterprise in its reporting of the letter sent by the Radcliff Chamber of Commerce to members of the Radcliff City Council. If I may, I would like to weigh in with my thoughts on the matter.

  • July 14 editorial: Punishing child support scofflaws


    Not all robbers wear masks and carry guns. Some quietly disappear into the night taking with them the financial support for their children ordered by a court of law.

Hardin County grand juries have indicted both men and women on the felony charge of flagrant nonsupport from being $1,000 or more behind in child support.
