    Appreciative of care
    Most people who read this have had the same experiences and understand my frustrations. We had chosen PrimaryCare as our home health care provider and they has provided professional, caring service and I highly recommend them. Their last visit was Jan. 11.

  • Proactive policy on alcohol illustrates leadership

    ISSUE: Alcohol at city-owned properties
    OUR VIEW: Elizabethtown's policy is proactive, balanced

    With increased interest in alcohol sales at city-owned property, the Elizabethtown City Council took up the issue, setting a new policy and taking a proactive approach to inevitable questions.

    The city approved limited alcohol availability at Pritchard Community Center and authorized the Historic State Theater and Elizabethtown Tourism & Convention Bureau boards to set policies for those facilities.

    ISSUE: Changing U.S. 31W in E'town
    OUR VIEW: Give this 'road diet' a try

    No one ever celebrates a diet. Even when you're committed to it and need it, dieting typically is not welcomed.

    So it's not surprising that news of a "road diet" for a stretch of U.S. 31W in downtown Elizabethtown is met with apprehension, questions and even ridicule.

    No dumping
    The old cemetery on Bewley Hollow Road is a favorite spot for dumping unwanted animals. This time, the perpetrator was almost caught, as he/she dumped a boxer. A neighbor saw it happen, but (unfortunately) couldn’t get the license plate number. (Maybe next time.....) Just know that lots of people are watching that area.

  • Select students may desire early graduation

    ISSUE: Proposed bill for early high school graduation
    OUR VIEW: Option makes sense for a select few

    If passed, a bill in the Education Committee of the Kentucky House of Representatives would provide an option for early graduation for some high school juniors.

    Citation disappoints
    I was greatly disappointed when I read Tony York was cited for allowing Ronnie Crain to drink wine at the Tony York’s on Main restaurant in Glendale.

  • Victims of abuse deserve true love

    “Look for the girl with the broken smile
    Ask her if she wants to stay awhile
    And she will be loved”
    - Maroon 5, “She Will Be Loved”

    Lowering her eyes, the young lady, still a teenager, turned away, trying to conceal the evidence: But it was unmistakably there. The marks on her face were painful reminders. She had indeed become another girl with a broken smile.

    Like thousands of other victims of domestic violence, her bruises would heal, but the scars on her heart would last a lifetime.

  • Priceless: Hurray for United Way

    ISSUE: United Way success
    OUR VIEW: Plenty of praise to share

    History has been made in the Heartland. Congratulations to United Way of Central Kentucky not only for meeting its $1,025,000 goal, but surpassing the mark to collect a record-breaking $1,031,236.

    Despite tough economic times, despite naysayers who felt the goal was too high and despite economic issues impacting  some workplaces, United Way and this community gave with their hearts and heads to help meet a financial goal and a human services goal.
