  • Well-defined rules vital to unification debate

    Beginning this week, Hardin County United will make formal presentations to local governments on the subject of unification. The informal organization’s volunteer members also have about two dozen presentations scheduled before civic clubs and community organizations.

    The challenge before them is significant. It was sharply defined when the Radcliff City Council took a stand against the idea before an appointment could be scheduled for a formal presentation.

    It appears unity can be a divisive topic.

    What a difference a week makes
    I left town for a week. When I returned, I picked up the stack of News-Enterprise papers to catch up on local happenings. The first paper I look at, Aug. 14, had quite a surprise regarding the Y.E.S. petition I signed several months ago.

  • Hero status of illegal immigrant points to ironies

    It’s refreshing to hear a good story: one of heroism, courage and irony.

  • Military pensions: Drawing a line in the sand

    By JIMMIE L. FOSTER, guest columnist

    For the past year, I have traveled through every state and several foreign countries meeting with veterans, service members and military families. This experience has given me the opportunity to listen and learn from the heroes of yesterday, today and tomorrow. While meeting our young warriors of today, I saw the same dedication, resolve and honor that was apparent when I served in uniform. It made me happy to be a veteran, national commander of The American Legion and, most importantly, an American.

  • Eight decades of memories pack Howevalley School

    It’s official. The long goodbye has begun for families with deep attachments to Howevalley Elementary School.
    In a way, it will be a goodbye to a way of life. Just as its establishment some eight decades ago closed the era of one-room schoolhouses in that western corner of Hardin County, there’s nothing quite like Howevalley left.

    Recycled arguments in Radcliff politics
    With regards to the issue of a recycle trailer in Radcliff it seems that some of us have lost our perspective.
    Magistrate Doug Goodman, having not gotten his way with Fiscal Court on a recycle trailer for Radcliff, goes back to his district and the city of Radcliff crying foul. With the city’s help he claims to be able to “land a trailer within weeks.”
