    CHHS boosters seek facilities

    As the end of May approaches, we face the true reality of yet another season without a permanent restroom facility for the Central Hardin girls’ fast-pitch softball program.

  • Some folks got mad about what we didn't do

    Sometimes it’s valuable to take down the wall and give our readers a peak at the thought process that goes into your daily newspaper.

    Maybe you’ll still disagree, but at least it will be an informed opinion.

    Every election season is accompanied by a certain amount of stress at the newspaper. With the energy and urgency invested by candidates and their supporters, it’s no surprise that some will lose perspective.

    Occasionally, I think, there’s just a need to blame someone other than themselves.

  • Understanding paradox is key to enjoying paradise

    Christianity is a religion of paradox because without faith, there is no true Christianity. Think about it: A paradox is defined as “a statement that seems contradictory, unbelievable, or absurd but that may be true in fact.”

    Christians are a people of paradox because they believe to be true what appears in the natural to be unbelievable or absurd.

    Time to honor the military

    Over the years May has become a time for honoring and remembering men and women who have served, or are serving, our nation. The month of May, which was designated as Military Appreciation Month in 1999 by Congress, includes Military Spouse Appreciation Day, Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day.

  • Welcome and enjoy the festival

    ISSUE: BBQ, Blues & Bikes is staged Saturday
    OUR VIEW: Have fun and be safe

    Elizabethtown will play host to a variety of guests this weekend who arrive to celebrate Memorial Day in its many forms.

    Some will join the celebration at the Elizabethtown Nature Park where the replica Vietnam Memorial will join the region’s own treasure, the Hardin County Veterans Tribute. Others will enjoy the long weekend watching kids play ballgames, visiting local parks or celebrating with backyard cookouts.

  • Finding a way to ignore those nagging British voices in your life

    Last Sunday, I decided to visit a new church. I got the address and my husband, Terry, went out to the car and programmed it into our new GPS for me.

    I don’t quite trust the thing. (Once it got me going in circles and I’d still be trying to get to my destination if I hadn’t recognized the same barn, for the third time.)

    Release details of EMS investigation

    After reading the resignation of the EMS Director Ira Dyer, I was shocked, but not surprised, on his resignation after only one year as Hardin EMS director. His assistant, James Miller, was suspended and both put on paid leave during the internal investigation. Seems the investigation focused on fraudulent time sheets for pay.

  • What election may tell us

    ISSUE: Analyzing Tuesday's election results
    OUR VIEW: Message in vote about government center

    Elections serve as a viable barometer of public opinion.

    If that statement is true, it seems fair to conclude that relocating county government from its historic downtown residence to a new $13.1 million complex is not a source of universal outrage in Hardin County.
