  • Habits are reminders of how we expect things to be. We develop habits by training ourselves to perform certain actions in a certain environment under certain conditions.

    One day a couple weeks ago, when I got home from work, I retrieved two dog dishes to feed my two canine companions, Nanook and Tybalt. The problem was it had been a week and a half since I needed only one.

  • When 23-year-old Allie Porter was a senior at Elizabethtown High School, she was in a wreck that left her with two broken hips and a broken tailbone.

    But that barely slowed her down. After recuperating for a few months, she resumed her active lifestyle.

    And she just keeps going.

    “Every aspect of my life I want to move forward,” Porter said.

    Unfortunately, in life you might encounter enemies. Many times it’s of no fault of your own that someone doesn’t like you or someone tries to hurt you. It might be a disagreement of choices or envy. 

    Recently, a television series highlighted infamous enemies the Hatfields and the McCoys. A hatred and dislike that went on for years over a seemingly trivial reason caused many hurts and even deaths.

  • Wesley Hilltop seniors traveled to Bardstown May 18 for lunch at the Stephen Foster Restaurant. Approximately 30 people ate lunch and had a great time. Those who attended and are not pictured include Roy Harper, Randall Clauson, Raymond Schulton, Donna Means, Lucille Stillwell and Leon Whitlock.

  • A Christmas in July workshop weekend was hosted by Sew Much More Quilt Shop in Clarkson to Stitchers Quilt Guild members. Members worked on two different projects, a small Christmas wallhanging and a Christmas tree skirt.

  • Rotary District Governor Don Dykman was the guest speaker at the Hardin County AM Rotary Club meeting  July 27. Pictured from left, District Governor Don Dykman, Hardin County AM Rotary Club President Cindy Gipson and Assistant District Governor Michael Owsley.

  • Music provided Sipan Hassan a path from Zawita, Iraq, to Radcliff. Now, the former Kurdish interpreter hopes music continues to pave that road all the way to the west coast.

    “My big goal is how to get into the music industry and Hollywood,” the 36-year-old said.

    Before the capture of Saddam Hussein, Hassan was living in Iraq and had composed a rap song called “Join the Game,” which urged the capture of the deposed Iraqui dictator. U.S. troops liked the song.

  • It is July 31 and the end of the month means it is time for shared recipes and requested ones, too.

    One recipe shared with me is Key Lime Pie, a real favorite to Southerners. This particular version was shared by Sarah Springer and can be found in the Glendale Homemakers Cookbook. This was a favorite of many in the Glendale area thanks to the late Susie Walker.
