  • It's an identity issue

    ISSUE: Hardin County United’s way forward
    OUR VIEW: Purpose, targets need clarification

    After the Hardin County community showed underwhelming interest in unified local government — failing to embrace the idea of exploring what that government might look like, even — it seems the volunteer group Hardin County United has lost steam.

  • Health care is a business

    ISSUE: HMH acquisitions
    OUR VIEW: Consider the motivations

    Hardin Memorial Health represents one of the region’s largest employers and there appears to be no end to that growth pattern.

    Most would say growth is a good thing, bigger is better. From the standpoint of HMH’s business interests, the recent focus on purchasing existing practices just makes sense.

    Many hands make greatness possible

    The gates of the Elizabethtown Nature Park and Hardin County Veterans Tribute are open to the public and with the holidays now upon us cause many local residents to reflect on the blessings they have received during the past year.

  • Christmas is Christmas because of the ones you love

    In our house, Christmas meant so many different things: Giving, faith, fun and especially family. We always understood that no matter what, nothing was more important than all these things.

    ISSUE: Compromise on county’s solid waste plan
    OUR VIEW:
    Berry and Duvall could provide model

    Compromise can be a difficult to achieve. Differing viewpoints and expected outcomes often create insurmountable hurdles that stand in the way of getting everything wanted by those on opposing sides of any issue. Like a brick wall separating one space from another, failure or refusal to communicate can only worsen the problem and push constructive progress further out of reach.

  • Remembering stores, people and reason for the season

    As I think about memories of Christmas time, I can’t help going back to early childhood days in Elizabethtown. Christmas Day was an all-day event with family time, including dinner, sharing of gifts and storytelling.
