  • Maybe it's harder these days to see the glass is half full


    On the last day of last year, I vowed that I would change and be a more positive me.

    I was certain/convinced/desperate that I would be swayed to becoming a “glass is half full’’ kind of guy instead of a, “half of it is gone already?” kind of guy.

    It was the new me.

    Bring back magistrates

    The present commissioner’s form of government, with all voters selecting each commissioner and the county judge-executive, assures us that the rural parts of the county will not be represented. The urbanities, which represent the majority of the population, will always have the final word.

    Demonstrators at political conventions

    I would like to say there is a huge difference between a peaceful demonstration and the bunch of street gangs, thugs, criminals and illegal aliens who were involved in demonstrations. That is what they are.

  • Sept. 30, 2008, editorial: A home for history

    The Hardin County History Museum recently celebrated its 5th birthday and the community should be thankful that some forward thinking minds got together to make the museum a reality.

    Because Hardin County is a place that needs a museum to look back at its past, community members can do that with glowing pride at the intersection of North Dixie Avenue and North Mulberry Street.

    Whether it's a look at Hardin County through it's early years or a touring mobile that makes a stop here, history has a place to call home.

    Pioneers once flocked to Kentucky, drawn by the natural riches of the place they called the Promised Land, the Garden of Eden, Elysium, or simply, Paradise.

    By foot, wagon, canoe and flatboat they came, first a trickle and then a torrent, seeking land, a new beginning, and adventure.

  • PREP FOOTBALL OPINION: Teams, not refs, decided rivalry game (10/5)

    RADCLIFF — John Hardin and North Hardin left the field on opposite ends of the emotional spectrum Friday night after the Bulldogs’ 20-17 win in the First Federal Bowl at Bulldog Stadium. Winning a rivalry game is always sweeter than other victories and losing always hurts more than other defeats. The Bulldogs might even have felt a sense of relief after dodging a bullet.

    We have one of the nicest two-day Bluegrass Festivals around anywhere (the ninth year). What does the News-enterprise have about it in Sunday’s paper? Only a small picture with no heading of the Festival. No one would ever know it was a Bluegrass Festival. “Shame on You.” People come from the state’s all over even Germany. You don’t fail to put on the fron
