  • Just last month, it became apparent to me just how much phone technology has changed our lives.

    My young adult Sunday school class had a hot dog roast at a church member’s farm, taking advantage of one more glorious fall day where the pale blue sky provided a backdrop to the orange and yellow hues of the maples and oaks.

    All the carloads of attendees arrived but one, and it became apparent they had gotten lost.

  • A Ferris wheel turns near spinning tea cups and a duck hunt carnival game while skaters glide across a frozen pond in front of the Holiday Diner located near Bowlarama and Graceland.

    Stepping into the Elizabethtown home of Juanita Powell is like being transported to a special world, one where rustic fishing villages co-exist with a ‘50s community, where a Swiss chalet is nestled amid barn dances.

    The Christmas village display takes up about half her living room.

  • Whether for Santa, as gifts for friends or just to eat yourself, ’tis the season for making cookies.

    Each year I do a massive amount of Christmas baking for friends and coworkers, and a few for Santa, too.

    This year, I used a recipe I’ve had since I graduated high school 20 years ago. The other is a new recipe from a new cookbook that might become a favorite.

  • We are one week away from Christmas and most of you who are entertaining at home have your menu planned.
    Most years, it includes the same types of entrees, but the sides are the one thing that might differ. I have to admit the Sweat household has favorites and most of the time the menu does not change. Today, I have for you some of our family’s favorite side dishes for holiday meals.

  • t won’t be long before youngsters will tear into those delicately wrapped Christmas gifts around a tree.

    As a kid, I was guilty of this. I might as well also confess that every year from about 5 years of age through 18, I would tear part of the gift wrapping on a present to see what it was covering up, and then sneak the gift to the back of the tree so mom and dad wouldn’t notice.

    A few times they did.

  • God called him to the ministry at age 18, but the Rev. William Curle of Hodgenville ran from his call for many years until God “loved him back” to where he needed to be, he said.

    He didn’t really do anything devastating as he ran. He remained active in church but it took him a long time to surrender to his call, he said.

    As his calling unfolded, he’s worn many hats, working at Dow Corning in Elizabethtown until 2006, farming and a preaching ministry that began in 1992.

  • Don and Vicki Stevenson of Elizabethtown will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary today, Dec. 16, 2012.
