  • Theater owner’s decision a hot topic

    I salute Mr. Ike Boutwell on his stand not to show a movie that has the traitor Jane Fonda as a cast member. Her actions during the Vietnam War aided and abetted the enemy while we had our armed forces fighting in theater. There is no doubt in my mind that her actions of encouraging the North Vietnamese army led to direct casualties of U.S. armed forces.

    ISSUE: Work ethic program enrollment

    OUR VIEW: Low participation indicative of program’s necessity

    Friday, Aug. 30, was the deadline for students to enroll in Hardin County School’s new work ethic certification. Of 975 seniors eligible to participate this year, 195 enrolled. It’s good to see nearly 200 HCS seniors had the impetus to sign up for what promises to be a very worthwhile experience in their final year of high school.

  • Fudging figures is no way to solve public-pension crisis

    It’s no secret that Frankfort’s bureaucratic bean counters possess quite the penchant for manipulating socioeconomic data to make their preferred agency’s performance appear as rosy as possible.

    Within the sphere of Kentucky’s six retirement funds, this fact is all the more troubling. That’s because the best arithmetic acrobatics our number crunchers could pull off still resulted in a reported unfunded public-pension liability of $34 billion, which ranks close to the worst in the nation.

    Could that actually be rosier than reality?

    Shut out of the parade

    I own and run Sinister Tombs Haunted House in Hardin County. We are a small, family-run haunted house and take great pride in having been in Hardin County since 2001.

    Until 2012, we had been accepted in the Heartland Festival parade in Elizabethtown every year. We were denied entry in 2012, saying we were too scary.

    ISSUE: Tuesday’s parade for 9/11 heroes

    OUR VIEW: Community should show appreciation

    It’s been a dozen years since terrorists attacked America by hijacking commercial airliners to create a series of flying missiles. Lives were destroyed and our sense of security stolen.

    Not qualified

    The racist agenda has been going on longer than before the Martin/Zimmerman story. It is sad most of those who are trying to bring the “forces” to bear are members of the black community.

    It is now being reported Charles Rangel has thrown out the rule book. In an interview, Mr. Rangel had the guts to say: “members of the Tea Party are nothing but a bunch of racist people ... who want to keep the black man down.”

  • Sunrise has long history of serving children

    In our efforts to help the children of Kentucky, Sunrise Children's Services has, for nearly a century, relied on Hardin County to play a vital role in our work.

    At Sunrise, our legacy involves not only our past history of caring for children, but also our ability to change and adapt so we can continue to serve those needs today and in years to come.
