  • Being part of a dog's life

    It has been a little more than two months since my girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I first got a new addition to our home, a 2-year-old Pomeranian named Tybalt.

    Although he came to us after being abandoned, Tybalt has adjusted so well it seems like he has been here all his life. He never seemed uncomfortable at all.

    Sure, for the first couple of weeks Tybalt was a door dasher. You know: He saw an open door and he dashed for it to run outside. From what we were told, he was abandoned outside, so maybe he was used to running free.

  • Home sales: Up, up and away

    Sales of new and existing homes in Hardin and several surrounding counties increased by nearly 23 percent in 2010.
    Local real estate experts say the big leap is a reflection of new residents in the area because of Base Realignment and Closure and an economy that appears to be on an upswing.
