Today's Features

  • Bride-to-be Kayla Peters of Eastview was the $500 grand-prize winner at the Bridal Showcase Jan. 27 at Prichard Community Center, sponsored by The News-Enterprise.

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown held its annual spaghetti supper Jan. 19 at the Brown-Pusey House. Dinner was provided by Atria of Elizabethtown.

    Special thanks were given to member and representative of Atria Shirley Pond. Desserts were donated by members of the club and Bonnie Lee chaired that responsibility. Following the dinner, results were shared of the silent auction and recipients were recognized and thanked.

  • This week’s adventure is the story of a recipe gone wrong but joyfully salvaged because adding ice cream on top of any baking mishap makes it all turn out well in the end.

    A few weeks ago, I ran across a recipe for hot fudge pie. The photo looked delicious and the instructions were relatively simple so I printed it out to try sometime. With the words hot fudge in the title it was a no-brainer to clip and save.

  • I have been searching for days for what to write this month’s column about.

    I’ve thought about it at work and at home. While sweating on an exercise machine and at a way-too-long traffic light. In the shower and while watching “American Idol” and “The Office.”

    Nothing seems to have nudged me one way or another.

  • Matt Adams, 24, has had farming on his mind a long time. He didn’t grow up living on a farm but spent a lot of his childhood and youth on the farm.

    His family moved to Upton from Eastern Kentucky. They were dairy farmers before he was born. After arriving in Upton, they did not know anyone and were, in a way, adopted as family of local farmer Paul Avery. He had children around the age of Adams’ parents but they all lived out of state.

    I do believe winter has arrived. Last week I was looking out our back window at a spring blooming shrub, and what do I see but some pink blossoms. It surely was blooming out of season. But one consolation, it is only two months until spring arrives, to which I always look forward to arriving.

    BURRR, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE.Mother Nature has been blowing some cold air our way lately making it sometimes almost unbearable to be out. Put those gloves, hat and big coats on to stay warmer. Still no signs of snow yet? Mom and Daphne will just have to deal without it.
