    Support honest elections
    I am concerned that the secretary of state be committed to honest elections. That is why I am supporting Bill Johnson. I know Bill will not allow leftwing groups such as ACORN to corrupt elections with forged voter registration cards or by bringing felons, illegal immigrants or the dead to the polls.
    Can the same be said of Alison Lundergan Grimes?

    Better education needed for some gun owners

  • America's resolve can be seen in twisted steel

    Draped in the stars and stripes, it received a police escort accompanied by dozens of patriots on motorcycles.
    Firefighters erected another huge flag to serve as a welcoming banner.
    Community leaders and everyday folks gathered in humid July conditions to welcome its arrival.
    It is a piece of steel.
    Yet it’s also so much more.
    A fractured part of the World Trade Center’s metal skeleton rests in Radcliff awaiting an opportunity to become the centerpiece of a grand memorial that will serve as a landmark to liberty.

  • Get ready to enjoy the Hardin County Fair

    Who’s ready for some good clean family fun?

    The summer tradition of carnival rides, funnel cakes and animal exhibits is about to get under way as the 2011 Hardin County Fair and Horse Show opens Monday.

    The Fair Board has worked hard in planning another fun-filled week, jam-packed with activities and entertainment for folks of all ages. These volunteers are to be commended for making the fair a unique, entertaining experience that is diverse and inviting.

  • Celebrate the local employment picture

    The issue: Local employment
    Our view: Cheer about the report

    Often, the community bemoans bad news but seldom does it celebrate good news.

    It must be human nature. We dwell on problems and take successes for granted.

    Before last week's headlines become this week's recycling, let's pause to shout hooray about the latest unemployment figure and what it says about Hardin County. Still hampered by national economic doldrums, the local community continues to outperform this region, the state and nation.

    On stereotypes
    Bob Farmer, Democratic candidate for agricultural commissioner, may have unwittingly done us all a great favor. He now apologizes for his remarks, but an Indiana audience heard him laugh and tell that those of Eastern Kentucky were a bunch of toothless, shoeless rednecks who inbred on a regular basis. His audience also had a few more good laughs as he told them about people who lived with their cars on blocks and their homes on wheels.

  • NASCAR comes to Kentucky

    The issue: NASCAR Sprint Cup impact
    Our view: Thank you, Bruton Smith

    It has been a long wait but July 9 is right around turn four and the finish line is in sight.

    Finally, after years of waiting and many lawsuits between the previous owners and NASCAR, the big boys are racing at Kentucky Speedway on Saturday night.
