  • Water District’s offer deserves consideration

    ISSUE: Elizabethtown’s municipal water system
    OUR VIEW: Time to decide about the future

    Chemistry brought the question to the table. Issues of community growth and development make it significant. Financial decisions may settle it.

    For about two years, Hardin County Water District No. 2 has been asking the City of Elizabethtown — its wholesale customer — to make a decision about changing the treatment process used to clean its tap water.

    Racism not a factor in theater 

    I applaud Ike Boutwell for his decision to do what he wishes to do with his own business. One of the responders to the letters section seemed to want to indicate his not showing “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” was something other than Jane Fonda, ergo, perhaps racial. Mr. Boutwell also did not show “Monster-in-Law” a couple years back because Fonda was the main character. 

  • Heartland Festival gets a thumbs up

    TOPIC: Heartland Festival 2013

    Heartland Festival in the Park is back where it rightly belongs among area festivals as one of the best this region has to offer.

    More than 15,000 people attended last weekend's event at Freeman Lake Park, taking in everything from rides to sno-cones, a reptile zoo to a concert. And much, much more.

    Calling shenanigans on redistricting

  • Dealing with change when the boomerang booms back

    “How long did you say you are you going to be home?”

    That was my dad’s question to me, Christmas holidays, 1975.

    I had set my shaving kit in the small bathroom I had shared with Dad for years. Then, I moved his shaving cream, after-shave lotion and cologne to the side so I could spread out mine where his had been, just like I had done when I was in high school.

  • Praise for staging unique fundraisers

    ISSUE: Noteworthy events
    OUR VIEW: Lots of opportunities to say well done

    In the constant buzz of activity that makes up local communities, exceptional acts of graciousness and charity are constantly being planned and implemented. Sometimes it’s a task to ensure the compliments keep pace with accomplishments.

    But let’s give it try. It’s time to pass out a few kudos.
