  • This invitation looks like a map

     

  • Drive-by memories of a former home and a full life

    The yellow street sign warned: “Stop ahead,” so I tapped my brakes, bringing my car to a complete stop at the intersection. I glanced to the left before releasing stepping on the accelerator.

    Then it hit me.

    No, it wasn’t another vehicle. It was a series of scenes from the past, swirling around my car, streaming by me one by one and all at once, hurling me back in a time warp before swooshing past my car like a comet, leaving me craning my neck to grasp another glimpse as I idled by.

  • How did $3.71 go from a burden to a bargain?

    Detouring onto U.S. 31W on a trip home Friday from Bowling Green, I spotted regular gasoline on sale at $3.71 per gallon.

    What a bargain.

    It was important to confirm that the pump price matched the highway sign. Then quickly filling the tank, it seemed certain that the station’s staff would learn any second that prices all along the Interstate 65 corridor were typically at least 15 cents higher per gallon.

    It felt like a remarkable discovery. Then reality set in: When did $3.71 per gallon become something to celebrate?

  • Authorities, market should fight animal cruelty

    ISSUE: Suspected puppy mill in Vine Grove
    OUR VIEW: Dogs' conditions unacceptable

    When authorities investigated a call about about possible animal cruelty last week at a mobile home in Vine Grove, they found more than 100 dogs living in cramped quarters and unsanitary conditions.

    A husband and wife, who police suspect were selling the dogs, each face 103 counts of second-degree animal cruelty.

    Time for GOP to unite
    If there is one thing most Republicans, many Democrats and independents can agree on is they want a change in the White House. The question now remains whether all members of the GOP will face reality, end divisiveness and bring an end to the race for 1,144 delegates. Mitt Romney has amassed more delegates than all of his opponents totals combined, more than twice the delegates of his closest opponent, and won more than twice the number of states and territories of his closest opponent.

  • Kids in foster care deserve better transition to adulthood

    ISSUE: Foster-care transition bill
    OUR VIEW: Offers a better future for kids

    While some 18-year-olds might be well-prepared for self-sufficiency as young adults, most of us would agree many aren’t.

  • Silence on licenses lets questions fester

    ISSUE: Awarding of liquor licenses
    OUR VIEW: State should explain itself

    As liquor licenses are put to use and package stores begin appearing in Hardin County's largest cities, it brings to mind an unanswered question in this ongoing cultural change.

    Questions regarding conflicts of interest were raised when Radcliff City Council members, past and present, sought licenses. The spouse of another council member also was an applicant.
