    Who would have thought buying a chicken sandwich with a pickle on it could become a political statement?

    Two weeks ago, the political donations and faith-based beliefs of the 91-year-old founder of Chick-fil-A were of little concern. In the past week, it has dominated social media and newspaper front pages and altered the dining habits of thousands ... at least for a day.

    OUR VIEW: A successful transition

    If the third annual Cruisin’ the Heartland was a preview of how Elizabethtown and new Events Coordinator Sarah Vaughn handle an event of this size, then we are in good hands.

    Vaughn and her team of volunteers did a good job orchestrating the event and even ordered up some perfect weather.
