    Our view: Accomplishing its goal

    Ladies and gentlemen, start the engine. The engine of redevelopment in downtown Elizabethtown, that is.

    The return this weekend of the immensely successful Cruisin’ the Heartland is another opportunity to remember yesteryear, the music, the dances, seeing movies at the State Theater and admiring the cars. It’s an opportunity to walk downtown’s streets, admire the architecture and mingle with friends and neighbors.

  • New school year brings new opportunity

    The issue: New school year
    Our view: There's work for everyone

    Summer break is over and it is time to get down to the business of education.

  • It takes a village

    When a Kentucky native and now Utah real estate developer announced plans to invest $4.5 million into Radcliff Village to develop more usable square footage, a burst of enthusiasm enveloped Radcliff. We welcome new destination shops and dining variety in Radcliff and believe announcement of economic development is a significant signal for all of Hardin County.
     

    Radcliff Village will set a new standard for the city and county. Perhaps it’s time other retail space developers look at how they’re positioned to serve the needs of Hardin County.

  • Hardin's reapportionment goes quickly, smoothly

    The issue: Legislative districts
    Our view: Hardin County got it right

    Legislative boundaries are redrawn every 10 years to reflect population shifts detected by the latest U.S. Census. The constitutional requirement assures balanced representation.

    It also creates periodic political infighting because some districts are enlarged and others shrink to obtain a balanced number of constituents. It should be noted, however, that Hardin County completed the process in record time without any public bickering.
