Amber Coulter, News Enterprise en Live-Cut Tree Sales Dwindle <p><a href="">Area sellers of live and live-cut Christmas trees</a> say they are selling fewer than in the past. Opinions differ regarding why that change is occurring. John Effinger, owner and manager of Frank Otte Nursery on Ring Road in Elizabethtown, thinks allergies are to blame. His grandchildren&rsquo;s allergies are why he and his wife had to buy an artificial tree after bringing live-cut trees into their home every year as they raised their own children. &ldquo;I think the environment is too clean today,&rdquo; he said.</p><p> Wed, 30 Nov 2011 14:55:53 +0000 Amber Coulter, News Enterprise 17137 at Hardin Muslims Reflect on 9/11 <p><a href="">Tehmina Haider of Elizabethtown cried with millions as she witnessed</a> on television the devastation of the terrorist attacks Sept. 11, 2001.

It looks just like three other Civil War cannonballs he owns. Taylor never noticed the piece of history while he lived in the house from 1986 until 2004 and later tenants never mentioned finding anything. He thinks erosion during the last eight months, during which the house has been vacant, uncovered the find. Heavy rains in April and May likely contributed to uncovering the sphere, he said.

The heat hasn&rsquo;t yet reached a point at which it is damaging crops, said Matt Adams, an extension agent for agriculture and natural resources with the Hardin County office. Warm and dry conditions allowed farmers to finish spring planting, which a wet April and early May postponed, he said. The area received more than 20 inches of rain over those months. The heat also helped late-planted corn grow faster than it would under cooler conditions, Adams said.
