    All that needs done is nothing

    Ten years ago the political system enacted a law to lower taxes and raise expenses. The law carried an expiration date of the end of this year. 

  • Relentless efforts deserve recognition

    TOPIC: Kudos all around
    OUR VIEW: Plenty to give thanks for every day

    Over the last three years, Gene Gudenkauf was a tireless worker for anything and everything about the military.

    Whether it was attending award ceremonies to ensure soldiers and Department of the Army civilians were recognized properly, or actively participating in troop deployments and redeployments, Gudenkauf was there as president of the Fort Knox Chapter of AUSA.

  • Thanksgiving's future: Will we choose bargains over traditions?

    My, oh my, no time for sweet potato pie this Thanksgiving. We’ve got to rush out and catch the sales at Walmart and Sears by 8 p.m., Target by 9 p.m., then Kohl’s and Best Buy at midnight.

    And oh yes, thank you Kmart for that breather between 4 and 8 p.m., Thanksgiving Day, giving us just enough time to scarf down the turkey and dressing before full-throttling ahead on our shopping tour until 11 p.m. Friday.

    The inevitable has happened: Black Friday has invaded Turkey Thursday.

    What’s good for the goose ...

    So Elizabethtown city officials and council members are mad and disgusted at the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Service for the fee it is charging for the easement from Veterans Way to the back of Towne Mall.

  • Violating our freedoms is no small thing

    During this Thanksgiving season, I trust you can find it in your heart to forgive me for writing about politics. But I have some unfinished business related to the most recent election.

    It seems every election season, the newspaper fields calls about destruction, damage or theft of political signs. This year was no exception. The local Republican Party, in fact, offered a bounty for information leading to the arrest of a serial sign vandal.

  • Making way for growth

    ISSUE: Multiple road projects
    OUR VIEW: Evidence Hardin County is worthy of investment

    As Kentucky wrestles with a sluggish economy, there is a bright spot in state spending in Hardin County. It’s bright orange and there’s plenty of it.

    Kentucky is operating on a tight budget and most state programs and services have had to adjust to budget cuts. Usually, that means local activity pulls back, too. But Hardin County road construction seems unaffected. Tens of millions of dollars in projects are moving forward.
