  • Teen uses sleuth skills for Gatton research

    For a research project that sounds as if it’s straight out of an Agatha Christie novel, a Hardin County student is looking to become the local (and younger) Miss Marple, Christie’s observant sleuth.

    Samantha McKean, a Cecilia resident attending the Carol Martin Gatton Academy of Mathematics and Science at Western Kentucky University, is focused on decrypting coded messages found on a possible St. Louis murder victim. McKean and two other Gatton students will work with Bruce Kessler, associate dean of the Ogden College of Science and Engineering, on the project.

  • Radcliff man charged with illegal sex act with a minor

    A Radcliff man was arrested Thursday on charges of providing minors with alcohol and committing an illegal sex act with a minor under 16.
    Jake Alan Killion, 20, is charged with one count of first-degree unlawful transaction with a minor and two counts of third-degree unlawful transaction with a minor, according to the citation.
    The arrest warrant said Killion gave alcohol to minors and forced one of them to perform oral sex on him. Both of the children reportedly involved were younger than 16.

  • Buyers let residents cash in on belongings

    A cigar box jiggled with old and foreign coins when Dule Brown of Rineyville arrived on Friday at the Baymont Inn and Suites in Elizabethtown.
    Premiere Estates Buyers in Springfield, Ill., spent most of last week buying coins, precious metals and other items of value at the hotel. The opportunity gave area residents the chance to get rid of unwanted items and bring in some extra cash.
    For Brown, it was all about the hunt.

  • River Days Festival rich with history

    White paper charges littered Elm Street just outside of the West Point Museum, a temporary site constructed for the River Days Festival. Bright orange cones separated the uniformed Union soldiers from the ragamuffin Confederates, who frantically stuffed a Civil War era cannon.
    Saturday marked the end of West Point's River Days Festival, which boasted a Civil War re-enactment, historical players and, for the first time, the West Point Museum.

    JULY. The new month is heating up. Hope everyone had an enjoyable Fourth of July holiday. Daddy, Jamilee, Cory and me shot off fireworks July 2. We had some really awesome fireworks. The dogs didn’t like them at all. They hid in their houses. When we got done, there was smoke everywhere. It made it look like fog.

    I hope everyone had a great holiday and enjoyed all the fireworks etc. I hope each one remembered to pray for those serving our country, wholeheartedly, even with their lives that we might maintain freedom that our military has fought and died to maintain down through the centuries, which has made the USA the greatest country of all in which to live. “God Bless America.”
