    How are those New Year’s resolutions working for you? If you’ve already reneged on them, don’t panic. You aren’t alone.

    Concerned about hectic intersection

    I have wondered for some time now why there is not a turn signal for the intersection of Ring Road and St. John Road. When the factories and school let out it is very difficult to make turns.

    Also, the Elizabethtown Sports Park traffic can be included in that when it has events. It is a very unsafe intersection. 

    Hardin County Schools purchased property in the area to build a new G.C. Burkhead School that also will increase traffic on St. John Road.

    Hardin County Schools purchased property in this area to build a new G.C. Burkhead Elementary School. That will only increase the traffic on St. John Road. 

  • Soon every call will require an area code

    It’s a clear sign of aging: The more things change, the more you wish they didn’t.

    Here’s the latest example: Beginning Feb. 1, the western half of Kentucky, including our community, will enter into 10-digit dialing.

    Basically, the 270 area code is running low of numbers. Of course, we remember 502 was running short so 270 was created as the cellular surge began.

    ISSUE: Proposed statewide smoking ban
    OUR VIEW: All Kentuckians should be protected

    In Hardin County and many other Kentucky communities, it now seems bizarre to walk into a store, office or even restaurant and be met with the haze and distinct smell of tobacco smoke.

    In this area, smoking has been banned from public buildings — including all workplaces — for some time. Now, a statewide ban is again under consideration.
