    Community works together on animal shelter

    We are building a new animal shelter for Hardin County and the community is pulling together to help. The PAWS Shelter Foundation is starting to get the support it needs to complete the new shelter at 220 Peterson Drive.

    Some roads matter more than others

    After reading your editorial “Roads matter in Hardin County” in the Jan. 23 issue of The News-Enterprise, I felt compelled to respond.

    It was obvious to me you haven’t traveled Middle Creek Road. This road begins at Valley Creek Road and ends at the LaRue County line. It is approximately 5 to 6 miles in length.

    The top layer of the road has worn through to the next layer in many places. There are a couple of short patches to cover up potholes.

    Standing by the Scouts

    In the midst of the swirling maelstrom that is engulfing the Boy Scouts of America today, I wish to offer some words of encouragement to those Eagle Scouts, and aspirants to that lofty rank, who have held fast to the values and beliefs upon which that institution was founded: Take heart and be proud.

    Glen Dale still serves

    Sunday’s paper included a touching story about the many lives changed over the years at Glen Dale Children’s Home. The home did not close in 2009, but just relocated. Glen Dale has never missed a day caring for children who desperately need our help.

    On Glen Dale Children’s Home

    As a past president of the Glen Dale Children’s Home Alumni I was thoroughly impressed with the sentiment shared in Neal Cardin’s column about the role that Glen Dale Children’s Home played in the Hardin County community.

    Furthermore I would like to comment that as one of the “Home Kids” most of us felt that Hardin County welcomed us with open arms and made us feel that we were in a community that truly cared for us.

    End the uncertainty

    Congress needs to know that they are risking our national security by failing to address the fiscal needs of our defense forces.  Recently, the U.S. Army’s Chief of Staff, Gen. Ray Odierno, spoke at the Association of the United States Army’s (AUSA) January Institute of Land Warfare breakfast. His message was quite clear – our national security is at risk because of the fiscal uncertainty we face today.

    Ready for new technology

    Jim Waters nailed it in his Jan. 18 column. We need to do everything we can to bring more jobs and the newest technology to Kentucky. AARP doesn’t speak for me or my family: I am not afraid of technology or innovation.

    I don’t need an out-of-touch seniors group standing between me and progress.

    Community Winterhelp: Opportunity to support those in need  

    With winter in full swing, our community’s most vulnerable residents can sometimes struggle to pay for essential services such as heat and electricity.

    Louisville Gas and Electric Company partners year-round with nonprofit and community organizations to provide utility bill assistance and weatherization services to help those in need.

    This support is even more critical during cold weather months.

    Adventure turned tragic

    As I drove down my street recently and stopped at the stop sign on Ky. 1600 to begin my day, I saw two little dogs attempting to cross the road. One was a medium-size Benji-type dog and one was a Jack Russell.

    Best friends out on a big adventure. You could tell by the spring in their step, it was a great morning for an adventure.

    My immediate reaction was, oh no, they are going to get hit.
