  • A missing piece of local season

    TOPIC: E'town-Central football game
    OUR VIEW: Series should continue

    Recent news that the football series between Elizabethtown High School and Central Hardin High School has been put on hold is disappointing on many fronts.

    Don’t be fooled again

    I am so discouraged by these letters to the editor promoting President Obama. Do these people really in good faith say he’s been a good president? Are they just voting Democrat, no matter who’s running? We have all this unrest in the Middle East and they want to blame it on a movie for fear that if they say it’s a terrorist attack, it would put a damper on his re-election.

    We’re being duped, my friends.

  • ‘Bang for the buck’ in public schools

    There is an upside to Kentucky’s budget crunch: It forces everyone from legislators to agency heads to school superintendents to get the most out of every taxpayer buck.
