  • Summer job is part of college plan for EHS student

    When Elizabethtown High School student Kimberly Morris decided to look for a summer job, she began sending out resumes.

    One of the places she sent a resume to was Stone Hearth Restaurant. Her mom had heard they were hiring, Morris said.

    “I had actually applied to literally 10 other places and none of them called me back,” Morris said.

  • Two injured in single-car wreck

    A Rineyville woman and Vine Grove teen were airlifted to Louisville after sustaining injuries in a single-car, roll-over wreck at the 7000 block of Rineyville Road on Sunday night.

    Dorothy J. Casey, 44, was driving the 13-year-old boy to his Flaherty Road home, said Greg Lowe, spokesman for the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office. The red 1994 Honda Civic was traveling westbound on Rineyville Road when it went off the right shoulder.

    Casey overcorrected, crossed into the eastbound lane and went into a ditch, causing the car to overturn several times, Lowe said.
