  • Thurman’s death affects a community

    TOPIC: Death of Amber Thurman
    OUR VIEW: Her impact is long lasting

    The death of beloved Abraham Lincoln Elementary School Principal Amber Thurman sent shockwaves throughout the LaRue County school district.

    Welcome Home spirit shines
    Duke Brigade soldiers all are back at Fort Knox. The communities surrounding Fort Knox are excited about their safe return and the excellent job they did for our country while deployed.
    The Military Partnership Council of the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce was fortunate to be able to play a part in organizing a Welcome Home process that brought soldiers into the homes of appreciative residents for the holidays.

    Recognizing hard work
    In January, Kentucky and many other states observe School Board Recognition Month, acknowledging school board members for the leadership they demonstrate and the many hours they invest as links between the community and its schools.  For their individual and collective dedication, our school community is honoring these men and women during this month-long tribute.

  • PAWS Shelter Foundation moving forward

    OUR VIEW: PAWS Foundation drives important initiative

    A vacant building on Peterson Drive in Elizabethtown is expected someday to be the modern shelter animals lovers believe cats and dogs deserve.

    ‘Farewell and thank you, Mr. Galbraith’
    With newspapers struggling for advertising and readers, The News-Enterprise never ceases to amaze me in an unexpected good way! Today it was with your editorial regarding Gatewood Galbraith. Kudos for another outstanding example of why you are one of the few quality small town newspapers in Kentucky. Excellent tribute to Mr. Galbraith.
