    OUR VIEW: Shortened suspensions benefit students, schools

    In June, the Hardin County Schools Board of Education is expected to revisit possible changes to the district’s drug and alcohol policy.

    Local mayors deserve applause
    Earlier this month, this newspaper published an editorial and the editorial board encouraged Hardin County residents to show its commitment to education.
    Local mayors answered that call.
    Elizabethtown Mayor Tim Walker and Radcliff Mayor J.J. Duvall joined a number of decision makers and dined with Western Kentucky University students in Bowling Green’s Downing University Center.

    Concerning open school prayer
    I read Mr. Charles Haynes’ article on the Dec. 19 opinion page concerning politicians and school prayer and I believe he has missed the point.
    First, the reader must understand that no government will ever have the power to keep anyone from praying whenever and where ever he or she choses to pray.

    As the final shopping days of Christmas approach, so does the deadline for helping children and families in need with the annual Salvation Army bell ringer program.
    Throughout Elizabethtown and Radcliff since last month, volunteers at times have stood in the cold, wind and rain, and rang a bell for hours, hoping those who pass by will offer up some change or a few dollars.

  • Surviving Christmas in a blended family

    Christmas can be tough, especially for blended families. And apparently there are plenty of them. It’s been estimated that more than half of Americans live in some form of a blended family. Stepfamily therapist Steven Straub believes that the blended family will become, if it’s not already, the predominate family structure in the United States.

  • Military answered the call: How will we respond?

    As thoughts for this time of the year turn to counting our blessings, may I suggest that chief among them is the willingness of our fellow Americans to defend our freedom generation after generation.

    Since Pearl Harbor some 70 years ago, three generations of Americans have answered our nation’s call to duty in her defense. Today, we are in the 11th consecutive year of the Global War on Terror.
