    Mike Weaver and his old- school cronies are crying foul over the previous local election results. I don’t hear any complaints coming from Tim Moore’s corner.

    Mr. Weaver had his chance; he held the position and was locked in as long as the good-old-boys ruled the roost. His political ambitions and aspirations far exceeded his qualifications for higher positions, as decided by the people of this state.

    HARDIN COUNTY — A recent stint in Hardin Memorial Hospital’s emergency room has left Radcliff resident Richard Groeling frustrated, due to a surprising bill rather than the quality of service.

    According to Upton Fire Department Assistant Chief Joe Vertrees, the 1:30 a.m. fire at 195 Riggs St. appears to have started when flames escaped a crack in the chimney’s flue and ignited the home’s frame or attic.
