  • Time to remove the blindfolds

    ISSUE: Child death review panel
    OUR VIEW:
    Toothless and blind

    Gov. Steve Beshear’s announcement in July that he would form a panel to review cases of child deaths and near-deaths handled by the Cabinet for Health and Family Services’ Department of Community Based Services was good news and offered hope that, at long last, the department would be thoroughly reviewed in a way that would restore public confidence in the DCBS and its staff.

  • As Congress approaches 'cliff,' its public standing is shaky

    As we move deeper into December, the question for Congress is this: Can members of the House and Senate do something to make the public feel more positive about Congress’s competence or will 2012 end on the familiar note of Americans taking an unrelievedly dim view of Congress’s job performance?

    Tax panel should look elsewhere

    The officers of Chapter 1050 of the National Association of Retired Federal Employees met Dec. 3 and the issue which attracted the greatest attention was raised by a letter from Jack Hermann which appeared on the editorial page of the Sunday, Dec. 2, edition of The News-Enterprise.

  • ACC an ideal move for U of L

    TOPIC: Conference shuffle
    OUR VIEW: ACC a good fit for U of L

    And now, U of L is headed to the Atlantic Coast Conference — a huge upgrade in every sport from the crumbling Big East Conference.

  • Community's laws should reflect its belief in fairness

    I‘ve always thought of Elizabethtown as “fair” city — at least for my partner, Sue, and me. We’ve never been turned away from a restaurant or had a problem finding a place to live just because of who we are.

  • Tell me another story, Mr. Lincoln

    I wonder what Abe Lincoln would think about all the fuss with Steven Spielberg’s epic movie, “Lincoln.”

    I can hear a reporter asking the ghost of Mr. Lincoln, “Did you ever think your popularity would soar even beyond its already lofty heights? And how does this development affect your assessment of your own place in history?”

    ISSUE: Accomplishments throughout county
    OUR VIEW:
    Kudos all around

    One of Hardin County’s most cherished Christmas traditions is on. Christmas in the Park at Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown, open from 6 to 11 p.m. through Jan. 1, is a great opportunity for family time spent sharing holiday cheer.

    Driving through the park with the radio tuned to Christmas music, of course, the child in all of us is dazzled by more than million lights illuminating more than 100 displays.
