    WANTED: A large building that can house Hardin County’s growing stray animal population so there won’t be another 2,300 dogs and cats euthanized like last year. Also, some land around the building to let the animals run around and have some fun would be nice as well.
    These are difficult times for the Hardin County Animal Control facility on Nicholas Street in Elizabethtown. The county’s continued growth is not without an increased pet population that needs help.

    MAY. The rain has finally slowed down, but many roads still have water over them causing them to be blocked off.  Fields and yards along the roadways still have water close to the roads causing caution whenever it starts raining.

    THANKS. My family and I are very appreciative of all that was done for me on my 90th birthday last Sunday. The calls, gifts, flowers and many cards were so appreciated. We had several family members and friends who attended. It was so good to see Henry and Ramona Cook of California who are in Kentucky visiting family and friends. Toby Smothers, who will be 92 on May 18, was also able to come help me celebrate.
