    If I were Ahmadinejad

    After I read an article in the June 19 issue of The News-Enterprise titled “Should Obama push harder in Iran?” and another article in the June 28 issue titled “Iran’s president lashes out at Obama,” I remembered my father saying “things done in the dark always come out in the light.” If I were Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, this is what I would say to President Barack Obama.

  • June 11 editorial: North softball, E'town baseball enjoy banner years


    Truth be told, every high school baseball and softball team in the 5th Region would like to have enjoyed the seasons two local squads had this year.

    The North Hardin High School softball team finished third in the 16-team state tournament in Owensboro last weekend, making a strong run at the school’s first state softball title.

    ‘We have met the enemy and he is us’

    I read Gerald Darcy’s letter regarding Republicans as a “good example of a primitive species” with disdain.
