  • It has been about six months since we welcomed a Pomeranian puppy into our home and Zorro has kept things interesting.

    Not only has he been dubbed Zorro the Destroyer, because of his penchant for turning everything into personal chew toys, but he has become an active sparring partner for Tybalt.

    Maybe one of the most noticeable contributions Zorro has made to the household is providing a springboard for new language.

    Let me explain.

  • For Elizabethtown native Aimee Boyd, a festive atmosphere is part of her job.

    As vice president of communications for the Kentucky Derby Festival, Boyd helps coordinate and promote events leading up to what has been called the most exciting two minutes in sports.

    “A few folks might think we only work a few weeks out of the year, but we work year round,” she said.

  • We’re smack dab in the middle of Holy Week, the time between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday.

    It’s a bittersweet week in the Christian faith tradition, moving from the euphoria of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem to the solemn Last Supper, the agony of Jesus’ crucifixion, and ultimately the joy of his resurrection.

  • When you think of an Easter meal, a few constants come to mind such as ham, deviled eggs and an assortment of traditional side dishes.

    When I think of Easter dinner, some sort of coconut dessert is usually a must. A beautiful light and fluffy coconut cake with jelly beans on top is a favorite and coconut pie is absolutely delicious.

    Honestly, I only recently discovered a taste for coconut. As my tastes have changed with age, it’s become a  favorite flavor. And, I love the smell of coconut.

  • Here we are, five days from Easter Sunday. Most people use this as an occasion for a family dinner. Baked ham seems to be the favorite for most, but turkey, fried chicken, pulled pork or a chuck roast are close seconds.

  • After almost 15 years in Congress and a few years rest, Ron Lewis said God called him to return to the preaching ministry.

    It was a simple decision for the 67-year-old who has moved from the inner halls of Washington, D.C., as the 2nd Congressional District's member in the U.S. House of Representatives to the pulpit of Youngers Creek Baptist Church in a rural corner of eastern Hardin County.

    “When God calls you, you feel at peace and content,” Lewis said.

    This was a disappointing week for basketball fans in Kentucky. The Wildcats lost in the NCAA championship game by a score of 60-54. One obvious difference was free throws. Connecticut made 10 of 10 free throws and Kentucky made only 13 of 24. Kentucky missed several front-end of 1-1 free throw situations in the second half when making two foul shots would have changed the game completely.
