  • Probably the very best of Jo Ellen LaRue Thomas’ recipes is the one that didn’t make print last week. That is the Caramel Italian Cream Cake.

    I know this will be popular with many of you, even my one student that always tells me every time I see her she says, “Mrs. Sweat, I think of you every time I make an Italian Cream Cake.”

  • A group of friends have decided to try to get healthier, encouraging each other along the way.

    Typically, when we gather weekly the table is spread with a variety of munchies, snacks and desserts. These don’t lean on the healthy or low-calorie side.

  • Melvin Montgomery enjoys serving in the school system where he grew up.

    Montgomery, 62, has spent 18 years at Helmwood Heights Elementary School as a school custodian. He calls Helmwood his family.

    “It’s more than a job, (it’s) a calling from God,” Mont­gomery said.

  • Adjusting the thin, wooden sticks in her grasp, Paige Pence awaited the cue and then jabbed at pieces of wrapped candy across the table from her.

    Like the other half-dozen participants in the candy-grab game, Pence, 13, of Glendale, discovered — in addition to the confections — the fun she derived from the activity was a treat.

  • Elizabethtown Community and Technical College is hosting an art exhibit through Sept. 11 in the Morrison Art Gallery.

    Located in Room 102 of the James S. Owen Building, the gallery will house exhibits from students who participated in the Kentucky Institute for International Studies Program from Western Kentucky University.

    “When the Game Stands Tall” is based on the true story of coach Bob Ladouceur and the De La Salle High School Spartans football team.

    The team builds a 151-game winning streak, but things start to go wrong and the character of the team is tested.

  • I teach a group of senior high school girls Sunday mornings at church and our lesson this past week was about rest. It specifically was speaking of the Sabbath, but can be applied to rest in general.

    For most of us, our lives are a busy, chaotic mess.

  • Kathryn Spalding always has seen life as an adventure and claims to be fearless.

    Above the door of her classroom, she would place the words “carpe diem” for students to see as they left. She tried to prepare them to seize every day and to learn the value of the written word.

  • When I was younger, my sister and I had certain household chores. Not always, but most of the time, we kind of banded together with my mother to keep on top of things such as washing dishes, sweeping floors and cleaning bathrooms. My dad was and still is the cook of the family — taking everything he makes seriously, even if it’s beans and cornbread.

  • Most people will agree that a good bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich is hard to beat. Whatever it is about that combination of flavors is something wonderful.

    During the season when you can get tomatoes fresh out of the garden, a good BLT is a delicacy. At least at my house it is. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
