    Volunteers are vital

    National Volunteer Week is April 19-25. National Volunteer Week is designated to recognize all volunteers and celebrate the spirit of volunteerism.

    At the American Red Cross, we are especially grateful for the hundreds of thousands of volunteers who contribute their time, blood and financial support. Many of us are ourselves volunteers. We know first-hand the selfless nature of people who give with no expectation of being paid for their time.

  • April 30, 2009, editorial: Is 'when' becoming 'if?

    By now, many have probably forgotten about the proposed Field of Dreams multi-sports complex off St. John Road.

    Whatever stir the project brought on a few years ago has been lost; the project momentum has become stagnant, much like the progress on the complex.

    Make no mistake about it: If and when this project is complete, it will be something for this community to hang its hat on. Regional and national tournaments will have Elizabethtown as a tournament option.

    It will be a great thing.

    Why the road is less traveled I write this due to the terrible roads I travel in Hardin County. I am talking mainly of the road in between the Towne Mall and the restaurants; Fazolis, McDonalds, Blockbuster Video and Bob Evans.  Included in this is the pull out lanes to the traffic lights. All these areas are so terrible I see people swerving in and out to avoid the large

  • April 28 editorial: Old Cott plant facelift

    For years, it was a bottling plant.

    Until recently, the Cott Beverage facility on North Dixie Avenue had become nothing more than a main roadway eyesore with its vacancy.

    The announcement that the facility had been purchased and was going to be turned into an area to sell or lease for businesses is a welcome sign along a busy stretch of road.

    Tim Aulbach and Charlie Wise own the building and have started the re-transformation of the building, gutting it to become a more enticing location.

    THE ISSUE: Warm Blessings

     OUR VIEW: Needs our help

    Although some still find it hard, or simply refuse, to believe that families in the midst of our relatively prosperous community don't know where their next meal is going to come from and their children go to bed hungry,  the board members, volunteers and financial supporters of the services provided by Warm Blessings continue the struggle to meet the growing demands for help.
