    Enough opposition

    Never in the history of the United States has the opposition held a meeting and decided that no matter what the policy, even if it were good for the country, they are going to object and block the policy. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich informed us of that.

  • Are you an anonymous grace-giver? Join the club

    I’m thinking about starting a non-profit organization for all the people who perform acts of kindness and don’t want to be thanked for doing them.

    Maybe I’ll name it, “Grace-Givers Anonymous.” I could set up a website where people like you could donate. Billboards promoting deliberate acts of kindness could be set up. Together we could run TV commercials for the cause.

    Bell ringers needed

    It is that time of the year again when the Salvation Army needs volunteer bell ringers.

    All it takes is to give them a call or drop by at the Salvation Thrift Store on North Mulberry Street (U.S. 62) to sign up.

    When I dropped by on Election Day and signed up, they still had plenty of openings for more signatures.

    You probably already know it, but all money donated through the program stays right here in the Hardin County area to assist the folks here who need help.

    OUR VIEW: From shredding to recognitions, good things happening

    Until you have been victimized by identity theft, you really don't know the lasting impact that it places on daily lives.

    An event organized last weekend by the Elizabethtown Police Department was one way of being proactive to keep identity thieves away from critical personal information.

    A-Plus Shredding set up mobile shredding equipment at Walmart along with Securitas Security Services USA.

  • The future changes forever this afternoon at 2

    For many communities, honoring veterans is a once a year activity. Not so here.

    Credit the close association with Fort Knox, our general appreciation for God and country or the Kentucky work ethic that respects service above all. Whatever the reason, displaying respect for veterans is not a once a year Veterans Day experience in Hardin County.

  • Unique ceremony marks this holiday

    THE ISSUE: Veterans Day 2012

    OUR VIEW: Honor those who’ve stood in harm’s way

    “In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.” – Mark Twain.
