    Do the right thing in Vine Grove

    Although I do not know former Vine Grove Police Chief Steve Manning personally, I have neither heard or seen anything reflecting poorly on his job performance. To the contrary, I have heard many compliments on his performance as police chief and as a Kentucky state trooper. Vine Grove’s crime rate has remained low and I’m unaware of any community wide complaints.

  • Laurels: Inspiration comes from many corners

    When considering people worthy of praise, start with inspirational action.

    WALK TO WASHINGTON. Dan Lyons is carrying a message about respect and honor for veterans to Washington, D.C. And he's doing it by foot.

    The 62-year-old Reno, Nev., resident recently passed through Hardin County on his six-month trek to the capital. Frustrated by noncommittal answers from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who was elected from his state, Lyons asked if he could get a meeting if he walked to D.C.

  • One senior reflects on day of service

    On a cold, rainy Saturday morning, 51 students of my senior class braved the weather, gave up their Thunder over Louisville weekend and lost some sleep to catch a bus to help residents of Henryville, Ind., on the National Day of Service.

    As a student on the trip, I witnessed events which affirm what I always have believed — North Hardin is a school of pride and one that truly cares about its tradition of excellence.

    ISSUE: Hardin County Farmers Market Inc.
    OUR VIEW: A unique opportunity

     The Hardin County Farmers’ Market Inc. opened earlier this month, ready to put a personal touch on food shopping.

    Setting up a few weeks earlier this year, market members saw a demand for foods that don’t depend on the growing season and thought a head start would help build lasting interest in the market.
