  • Nobody say it too loudly, but I think we might have turned a corner with my daughter.

    Sort of.

    I mean, she still can throw down with the best and toughest of them and will let us know when she’s not happy we don’t allow her to do something she’s convinced she’s perfectly capable of doing by herself. Like jump off the dining room table.

    Although, really, she has a perfect landing, so I probably should encourage more jumping off furniture. And cars. And trees. And whatever else is high and guaranteed to cause heart palpitations.

  • Sometimes food can be fun, especially when geeky friends are involved. Theming your snacks around something you are doing or watching can help elevate the mood at any gathering.

    This adventure involves food, friends and “The Goonies.”

    That’s right, “The Goonies,” a crazy group of kids who tried to save the Goon Docks in the 1985 flick.

    A group of friends decided to watch the movie last week. We decided to craft snacks around things featured in the film.

  • While the Elizabethtown Police Department is cleaning up the streets, David Berry takes pride in keeping their building in tip-top shape.

    Berry, 69, started working with the city in November of 1992 and for the past decade has been the custodian for EPD after the construction of its current station.

    “This is probably the best job I’ve ever had,” he said. “I wouldn’t leave it for anything.”

    Part of the reason he loves his job are the people he works with. He said they are the “top of the line.”

  • Some of the characters that have walked the streets of Elizabethtown over the years come to life every Thursday night during summer in the Charles W. Logsdon Elizabethtown Downtown Walking Tour.

    After putting aside her artistic aspirations in order to serve in the Air Force, Buffalo resident Amber Gardner now has immersed herself in her art.

    At her home studio, Gardner creates watercolor paintings, steampunk-style jewelry and leather items for her business Dragonflypoppy Creations. Although her business is relatively new, her interest in art goes back many years.

  • Christy Pritchard looks toward the future with knowledge from the past in her work as an archaeologist and while volunteering with the Elizabethtown Heritage Council.

    She is the archaeology project manager for the Kentucky office of Brockington and Associates and on the board of directors of the Heritage Council.

  • An unplanned teachng assignment may have temporarily detoured him from the path of history and photography, but Elvin Smith Jr. found his way back soon enough.

    A 1960 graduate of Rineyville High School, Smith attended Western Kentucky University where he majored in elementary education with a minor in physical education. He graduated in 1965 and earned a master’s degree in 1967.

    Smith began his 30-year career as a teacher at Maceo Elementary School in Daviess County.

    “I was supposed to teach science and history,” Smith said.

  • About three years ago, as she worked toward her degree in psychology and social work, Elizabethtown resident Melinda Riddle began volunteering at Helping Hand of Hope to complete required community service hours.

    In her words, the 20-hour community service requirement “kind of snowballed.”

    “It kind of got me that there was so much to be done and not enough hands to do it,” Riddle said.

    The realization made her want to continue to volunteer, she said.
