  • New mayors find strength in numbers

    Unity is not a buzzword for the new leaders of Hardin County’s three largest cities.

    In an overt symbol of support, incoming Elizabethtown Mayor Tim Walker, Radcliff Mayor J.J. Duvall and Vine Grove Mayor Blake Proffitt have taken steps to build their relationships beyond the superficial — attending each other’s swearing-in ceremonies and communicating with each other in recent weeks on ways their cities can cooperate after they take office in January.

  • A year has past: What was done

    It never fails. The end of the year always makes me want to look back at the past 12 months and evaluate things, ala a John Lennon/Yoko Ono song. (You know: “So this is Christmas and what have you done? Another year over and a new one just begun.”)

    It’s rarely the eye-opening occasion it maybe should be.

    I didn’t rescue children from a burning building. I didn’t discover a cure for cancer. I didn’t end world hunger.

    (“And what have you done?”)
