  • 12 days to a merry, free-market Christmas

    On the day I’m writing this, there are exactly 12 days until old St. Nick reveals his decision about which Kentucky legislators and judges have been naughty and which are nice.

    So I decided to try some good old-fashioned political caroling to express my wishes – and those of a growing number of Kentuckians – for a more prosperous and competitive commonwealth in the days to come.

    All who have “less government and more freedom” on your Christmas wish list, sing with me – don’t be shy:

  • Escaping from the dark side of Christmas

    he Christmas holidays for most people are filled with the joy and excitement of presents, Christmas trees, meals, family and friends.

    But for some, the holidays can be a sad and depressing time filled with broken relationships, loneliness and pain. Hearing other people talk about the joy of the season does not go over well with those facing shattered dreams which have overshadowed life and stolen joy.

  • It's an identity issue

    ISSUE: Hardin County United’s way forward
    OUR VIEW: Purpose, targets need clarification

    After the Hardin County community showed underwhelming interest in unified local government — failing to embrace the idea of exploring what that government might look like, even — it seems the volunteer group Hardin County United has lost steam.

  • Health care is a business

    ISSUE: HMH acquisitions
    OUR VIEW: Consider the motivations

    Hardin Memorial Health represents one of the region’s largest employers and there appears to be no end to that growth pattern.

    Most would say growth is a good thing, bigger is better. From the standpoint of HMH’s business interests, the recent focus on purchasing existing practices just makes sense.

  • Dec. 13, 2012: Our readers write

    Many hands make greatness possible

    The gates of the Elizabethtown Nature Park and Hardin County Veterans Tribute are open to the public and with the holidays now upon us cause many local residents to reflect on the blessings they have received during the past year.

  • Christmas is Christmas because of the ones you love

    In our house, Christmas meant so many different things: Giving, faith, fun and especially family. We always understood that no matter what, nothing was more important than all these things.

    We often look back at all our moments and, man, do we laugh at the fun we all shared in the Holmes household. When you raise six kids, believe me, things can get a little crazy during the holidays.
