    MARCH. The weather has brought us a few stormy days and nights and lots of rain. Some places in the county got some hail too. Did everybody notice the dirt on our vehicles? They say it was from dirty rain brought in from the storms. The car wash businesses probably were busy the day after the storm blew through. Daylight Savings Time will begin on March 13. Time to go forward one hour.

    READY FOR SPRING. We can now start counting the days until spring arrives, and I am so glad. My sympathies go out to those who were in the path of the tornadoes a few nights ago. I’m very thankful we had no damage in this area. Just a few years ago, many in this area lost their homes and had a lot of other damage done to their property. Central Hardin High School also had a lot of damage at that time.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL OPINION: E'town got one, but not the one that mattered (03/06)

    LEBANON After his team notched a regular-season win at Marion County, Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd was pretty upfront about his thoughts.

    “It’s nice, but it’s not the one that matters,” Mudd said after that game.

    When he woke up this morning following his Lady Panthers’ 53-52 loss to host Marion County in the Girls’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament final Saturday night, it’s a good bet Mudd felt the same way as he did then.
