  • Finding a way to ignore those nagging British voices in your life

    Last Sunday, I decided to visit a new church. I got the address and my husband, Terry, went out to the car and programmed it into our new GPS for me.

    I don’t quite trust the thing. (Once it got me going in circles and I’d still be trying to get to my destination if I hadn’t recognized the same barn, for the third time.)

    Release details of EMS investigation

    After reading the resignation of the EMS Director Ira Dyer, I was shocked, but not surprised, on his resignation after only one year as Hardin EMS director. His assistant, James Miller, was suspended and both put on paid leave during the internal investigation. Seems the investigation focused on fraudulent time sheets for pay.

  • What election may tell us

    ISSUE: Analyzing Tuesday's election results
    OUR VIEW: Message in vote about government center

    Elections serve as a viable barometer of public opinion.

    If that statement is true, it seems fair to conclude that relocating county government from its historic downtown residence to a new $13.1 million complex is not a source of universal outrage in Hardin County.

    Do facts support statement?

    The truth finally comes out about the condition of the courthouse, per Thursday’s article “Oldham: No concerns about courthouse condition.”

    It seems there was no research conducted on the part of the current 7th District magistrate, Dwight Morgan, concerning why we needed a new courthouse or the condition of the existing H.B. Fife Courthouse before he voted to spend millions of taxpayers’ dollars on the new government building.

    ISSUE: Elizabethtown’s public pool to reopen
    OUR VIEW:
    It isn’t only thing that needs repair

    There is relief in sight for Elizabethtown-area residents looking to beat the heat this summer. The American Legion Park municipal pool will open to the public once again beginning June 7.

    For many local residents that is a very welcome announcement. At the same time, it can be considered slightly confusing. Because of maintenance issues, last season was supposed to be the pool’s last.

  • From D.C. trip to postal heroism

    KUDOS: Praising positives in our community

    It’s probably not often someone from Hardin County gets to go to Washington, D.C., and have lunch at the White House.

    East Hardin Middle School technology education teacher Brooke Whitlow can say she did, dining with among others, Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

    Neighboring states making gains in jobs

    Not only have Tennessee and Indiana surpassed Kentucky in competition for employers and jobs, our neighbor Missouri has as well. A little research reveals that Toyota told the California governor a day before it announced plans to shift its headquarters to Texas and the same for Kentucky’s governor before they announced the move of jobs from Kentucky. Think about that.

  • Don’t be fooled by phoney phone deals

    Consumers are reporting to the BBB been ripped off by scammers posing as national telephone companies.
