  • The puzzlement of parenting our parents

    As I walked away from the emergency room, I felt a heaviness for my friends who had just brought in their elderly father. They were rightly concerned about his health issues.

    But their dad wasn’t. In fact, he was angry that his adult children had insisted on admitting him to the hospital.

    There he rested on the gurney, pouting because he wasn’t home. His lower lip was turned up, childlike, which enhanced the scowl on his face as he weakly waved me away.

    It’s not easy parenting parents.

    Doing something about downtown
    Applause to Mayor Tim Walker and the Elizabethtown City Council for finally taking steps to save our downtown. For many of us who have worked with the Heritage Council and other interested groups throughout the years, and a handful of us who actually have actually struggled to make businesses in downtown work, it is nice to see ideas and solutions suggested and talked about for decades finally given a chance to make a difference.

  • Burke case does not offer simple solutions

    The issue: Dismissal motion for Burke case
    Our view: Justice is not always simple

    In pursuit of justice, truth can be elusive and errors sometimes occur.

    Despite a motion for dismissal from the prosecution, criminal charges remain in effect against Brent Burke. For more than three years, he has been in jail on multiple charges, including two counts of murder related to the brutal deaths of his estranged wife and her former mother-in-law.

  • Central's state champions give us all Bruin pride

    There they were, piling on each other in the infield of a baseball field that had become their home for the week. The Central Hardin High School baseball team was basking in the glow of a state title.

    A squad that entered the season with high expectations, ended its most memorable season ever Saturday with a state championship in hand, routing Mercer County in the final, 21-2.

    The win capped a 36-4 season for the Bruins, who faced an aggressive schedule in preparing for the postseason success.
