  • This month’s “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” is a lady who goes way back in my life. She and my mom were band boosters at West Hardin High School while my sister, Carolyn, and her daughter, Diana, were in the Laker band. I also was in high school with her son, Michael, who is a year younger than me.

    Congratulations to Betty Richardson, who once lived in Howevalley, west of Cecilia, on Ky. 84 and now lives comfortably off U.S. 62 in Elizabethtown.

  • J.B. Tiotuico’s love for music truly has been inherited.

    J.B., 11, has been studying the piano since he was 6 years old, and is now passing on his skills to his own student. Tiotuico inherited a love of and gift for music from his mother, Carina, who has taught piano for 24 years and studied it in college.

    His interest in the piano started at a very young age, she said. He took to the instrument immediately and has since won several awards.

    “He had, really, a nice interest,” Carina said.

  • While the July fourth holiday is a time for celebration, for many in 4-H it also marks the countdown of days to the Hardin County Fair, July 9-14; State 4-H Horse Show, June 30-July 7 and the Kentucky State Fair Aug. 16-26. With that comes planning, paperwork, registration deadlines and hopefully lots patience!

    During the last few weeks many 4-Her’s have been involved in a variety of events. 

  • There is one professional baseball organization that stands out as the worst over the last 20 years. That organization is the Pittsburgh Pirates. They have endured 19 losing seasons in a row. They have played bad baseball and made questionable trades for many years. Their losing performance is illustrative of a team going in the wrong direction.

    The Pirates have not always been so bad. They have a history of World Series championships and some of the best baseball players have played for them. But for the last 19 years, they have been the worst team in baseball.

  • When telling of a season at Hardin County Playhouse, artistic director Bo Cecil often uses a food analogy, describing the offerings as the various courses of a good meal.

    Such a comparison is fitting for the 40-year-old Hodgenville resident who studied culinary arts at Sullivan University and taught world cuisine classes to high school seniors within a two-hour radius of Louisville. He enjoyed doing so except for one aspect.

    “I hate to drive,” Cecil said.

    HOTTER.  The first week of July was extremely hot with temperatures reaching into the 100s. We take very good care of our outdoor pets but one of them, Nani, got overheated last week and we brought her in the house to cool her down. She now has dug a deep hole in the ground to stay cooler. She looks like she’s in a fox hole. It’s funny how smart animals can be. Give your pets cool fresh water throughout the day. We put ice cubes in ours.
