  • Rev up the engine with downtown fun

    The issue: Cruisin' the Heartland
    Our view: Accomplishing its goal

    Ladies and gentlemen, start the engine. The engine of redevelopment in downtown Elizabethtown, that is.

    The return this weekend of the immensely successful Cruisin’ the Heartland is another opportunity to remember yesteryear, the music, the dances, seeing movies at the State Theater and admiring the cars. It’s an opportunity to walk downtown’s streets, admire the architecture and mingle with friends and neighbors.

    A dangerous game

  • New school year brings new opportunity

    The issue: New school year
    Our view: There's work for everyone

    Summer break is over and it is time to get down to the business of education.

    A new school year means a blank slate for students, but also parents, teachers and school administrators at all levels. Gearing up with the right supplies gets the year off to a good start.

    Social Security payments should reflect ‘real life’
    I would like to inform people who receive a Social Security check, as most of them already know, myself included, that we did not get a raise in our Social Security checks last year or this year. This raise is supposed to be automatic if the cost of living increases. We were informed, by letter, that we would not get a raise in our checks because “the cost of living had not increased.”

  • Empty rooms filled with sweet memories

     “All that had been used to make it a dwelling place, by my folks on back, by Grover and me… all the memories of all the lives that had made it and held it together, all would come apart and be gone as if it never was.”

    ---from Sold, a short story by Wendell Berry

     

    The rooms were empty by the time I arrived. Except for a few heaps of trash here and there and some stuff no one wanted, it was finished, done.

  • It takes a village

    When a Kentucky native and now Utah real estate developer announced plans to invest $4.5 million into Radcliff Village to develop more usable square footage, a burst of enthusiasm enveloped Radcliff. We welcome new destination shops and dining variety in Radcliff and believe announcement of economic development is a significant signal for all of Hardin County.
     

    Radcliff Village will set a new standard for the city and county. Perhaps it’s time other retail space developers look at how they’re positioned to serve the needs of Hardin County.
