  • Chamber may be bridge to ‘powerhouse entity’

    The hiring of Brad Richardson to lead the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce as its president and chief executive officer adds a new layer of economic muscle to the chamber.

    And local officials said the emergence of Richardson in the role could create a bridge to the development of a “powerhouse entity” serving as a one-stop shop for economic development.

  • Interstate bridge work slows traffic

    Many local residents and workers have learned to avoid a traffic bottleneck at the bridge on Interstate 65 near the Glendale exit.

    Lee Warf, who lives near Greensburg, Ind., said he sometimes took U.S. 31W to his stands at an antique mall in Glendale, but he takes that route every time now.

    He has been caught in I-65 traffic, and he’s worried about the potential for crashes caused by construction on that road.

    Motorists such as Warf can avoid delays for a while.

  • MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Adcock's 'on top of the world' (3/30)

    Nathan Adcock was in the Kansas City Royals locker room Sunday when manager Ned Yost walked by and called him into the office.

    “When the manager comes and says ‘come with me,’ my heart dropped to my feet,” Adcock said. “My heart dropped 6 feet below my feet.”

    Adcock didn’t know what to expect from the impromptu meeting. Had the Royals worked out a deal to keep the Rule 5 draftee? Was he being sent back to the Pittsburgh Pirates? Was he being sent to the minors, which meant any team could pick him up?
