  • Filling a void in medical access

    Dentistry might be her profession, but Susan King is just as concerned that the general public has access to good general health care.

    When the Community Health Clinic of Hardin & LaRue Counties opened in 2002 in Elizabethtown King joined the dental care section. The clinic offers uninsured and low-income residents of Hardin and LaRue counties free basic health care services.

    “Now, more than ever, there’s a huge need for this kind of care,” King said.

  • Rapture: Cashing in on the Apocalypse

    Oops. He missed it again —- the date for the rapture, that is. But that’s OK, miscalculating the date for the end times is nothing new for Harold Camping.

    In 1992, he published his book, “1994?” in which he predicted Sept. 6, 1994 as the beginning of the end. Undeterred by that non-happening, Camping did some re-calculating and published another book in 2008, “We Are Almost There!” He conveniently forgot to mention his 1994 prediction’s failure to launch.

  • Community honors veterans with parade

    David Hedges of Vine Grove rose from his collapsible chair on North Miles Street in Elizabethtown to attention as the American flag led the annual Memorial Day parade along the road.

    His hand was pressed into a salute against a hat that declared him to be a Vietnam War veteran as the flag was marched in front of him with the John Hardin High School band playing a rendition of “America the Beautiful” in the background.

  • Memorial Day audience thanks veterans, encouraged to take responsibility

    Charles Green Sr. thinks it’s important on Memorial Day to honor the men and women who have made sacrifices for their country.
    “By remembering, we keep their very spirit alive,” said the command sergeant major for the Leader’s Training Course and 1st Brigade for the U.S. Army Cadet Command.
    More than that, Green said Memorial Day gives Americans a fresh motivation to be among those who defend and promote the values of the country they love.

  • Peddler's Mall activities to benefit community

    The Peddler’s Mall in Radcliff is making more activities available to the community beginning Saturday.

    Khamé Muhammad said she has been looking for a while for activities to fill in for Saturday Bingo ever since the event stopped taking place.

    Every Saturday for the next year, the Peddler’s Mall bingo hall will feature opportunities – a talent show competition every first Saturday, a gospel explosion and praise show every second Saturday, a reggae and Caribbean culture night every third Saturday.

  • Agencies seeking fans for those in need

    As temperatures soared around 90 degrees over the weekend, the need for cooling in homes of those less fortunate is on the rise.

    North Hardin HOPE and Helping Hand Executive Director David Dozer said there is a need of close to 100 fans or air conditioning wall units for his agency to help alleviate the summer heat and humidity.

    “Really for very young children and the elderly, there is a need to have a flow of cooler air,’’ Dozer said. “A lot of senior citizens have breathing problems and they just need some extra cooling.’’
