    Veterans Tribute the work of many hands

  • Don't cry over hot and dry conditions

    Any one else remember when grass was green and didn’t crunch?

    After weeks of dry conditions and now days of stiffling, triple-digit high temperatures, yards everywhere have a hazy brown look. For those of us who dispair as summer days disappear to the continual burden of yard care, that’s the sole silver lining in the cloudless skies.

    For yard and garden devotees, don’t shed any tears for next month’s water bill. That only will contribute to the potential for dehydration.

  • Select Preps recognizes more than athletic success

    TOPIC: Select Preps
    OUR VIEW: Best in community, classroom and on the field

    If you are a high school sports fan, you may know about the player who throws for the most touchdowns, runs for the most yards, scores the most points, hits the most home runs and scores the most goals.

     Conservative Dems need direction

  • Not too young to help, inspire

    ISSUE: Young volunteers
    OUR VIEW: Commend compassionate youth

    Clearing a table at a soup kitchen, boxing free food for the poor, reading a book or playing a game with an underprivileged child, helping a senior citizen with yard work. These acts of kindness happen every day.

    Charitable organizations and charitable people in the Hardin County area fill so many needs and there seems no shortage of groups and individuals who inspire us to do better for others.

  • Raise a collective voice against criminal acts

    ISSUE: Startling criminal acts
    OUR VIEW: Community should express outrage

    It’s nice to think of our area as Kentucky’s Heartland — a collection of friends living in idyllic communities surrounded by pastoral settings, complemented by an often-envied highway network and ample employment opportunities.

    It is all of that. But police reports often jar us into a broader understanding of reality.

    Consider these recent acts:

  • Ky. 313 expansion is 'ribbon to future'

    ISSUE: New sections of Ky. 313 now open 
    OUR VIEW: Providing convenience and safety

    When it comes to highway travel, what is the best way to get from Point A to Point B? For starters, how about getting to the destination quickly and safely?

    Let’s look out for each other

    I write this with a broken heart as I think of the Higdon family and their recent loss. The burglary that occurred at their home as they were at their son’s funeral is unthinkable in our community, and yet it happened.

    It happened here, where we do not give a thought to such things, here where we are disgusted to hear of such a thing. This could be and should be our wake-up call — a call to action to keep this from becoming the usual and expected occurrence in our county.
