  • A Dash of Class: Favorite recipes from one of Hardin County's finest cooks

    Some of the best nominations for “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” are made by you, my readers. Even though I have known this lady for some time, I had no idea of her love to cook.

    It is my pleasure to recognize former Hardin County Schools board member, Radcliff citizen and community leader extraordinaire, Jo Emary. When I asked her if she would like to share some of her recipes with you, she was quick to say yes.

  • Community choir celebrates 10 years

    Its members are preparing to celebrate 10 years, but the genesis of The Elizabethtown Area Sacred Community Choir technically goes back more than a decade to 1999, when the Israel-Palestinian conflict grabbed the attention of Sida Roberts.

    About that time, Roberts read about a cantata written for healing of the nations and knew it needed to be part of a local service. She began contacting the music directors at various churches in the community to form a collaborative effort, leading to the creation of the choir's board of directors in 2001.

  • GIRLS' 5TH REGION TOURNAMENT: North looks for better results vs. Marion (2/28)

    LEBANON When North Hardin met Marion County during the regular season, North Hardin coach James Slaven walked away feeling good about how his team performed.

    But Slaven and his coaching staff had a different feeling after watching the game once again. He didn’t have that warm, fuzzy feeling he had initially following the game.

  • BOYS' 5TH REGION TOURNAMENT: John Hardin faces Bardstown in first round (2/28)

    GREENSBURG Usually by this time of year, one or two teams have separated themselves from the pack and coaches will point to those so-called favorites.

    This is not one of those typical years.

    Coaches at the Boys’ 5th Region Basketball Tournament draw Sunday afternoon at Green County High School couldn’t settle on who the favorite is heading into this week’s quarterfinals. The first round will be played Wednesday night and Thursday night with the semifinals March 7 and the championship March 8.

  • Feeding America to increase fresh produce for those in need

    Some Kentucky produce will go toward feeding hungry people in need this growing season.

    Among companies and private individuals picking up items, representatives from Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland will visit produce auctions. Organization representatives will select produce that is not perfectly formed and might not catch other bidders’ attention.

  • Senior Life: When is the right time to look at options?

    If we had a crystal ball to tell the future, it would make life so much easier. Looking ahead, we would plan more effectively, make decisions based on facts instead of intuition, and make the right choices the first time.

    Unfortunately, there is not a crystal ball available, and it seems like one is definitely needed when caring for aging family members and loved ones. Decisions and plans often are made on intuition and gut feelings; often decisions have to be made at the last minute instead of relying on long-term planning.

  • My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Cheeseburger Bake and a cheesecake

    As you all know, I really love “quick and easy” recipes. I think when I was younger, I enjoyed the harder, more complex recipes. You would think it would be the other way around; when I was younger and my daughter was at home, I would have had less time, so I should have wanted the “quick and easy” dishes then. But no, I want them now.

  • KCTCS event offers motivation for education

    Titania Nichols of Elizabethtown knows the importance of education.

    She was attending Elizabethtown Community and Technical College in 2000 but had to stop during a divorce.
