Of public transportation here in Hardin County, a question needs to be asked: Are we are beating a dead horse?
Yes, a number of transportation studies for well more than a decade show a need for a transit system here in Hardin County — Elizabethtown, Radcliff, Vine Grove and Fort Knox — and found it wanted by the public and feasible to establish.
Why haven’t fixed routes been set up except on paper and buses seen here are just another taxi service limited to the elderly or disabled.
I am so disappointed by the Boy Scouts making headlines to announce that they are now accepting gay youth.
It never crossed my mind that they had ever turned one away for this reason. If they had done so it would have made much bigger headlines than their vote did. It also puzzled me that their vote left out Scout masters who are still banned. Why two standards?
On May 10, America learned that the IRS – perhaps the most frightening of all government agencies – has been singling out and targeting conservative groups, including tea party groups.
