  • Kendrick Johnson hits the gridiron with the Kentucky Wolverines and hits the books as a teacher at Brown Street Alternative Education Center.

    Originally from Michigan, Johnson settled in Hardin County after serving in the military.

    Johnson’s played football in some form for 28 years. At 43, he continues to play semi-pro football.

    He played three years with the Louisville Galaxy then helped form the Kentucky Wolverines in Elizabethtown. He is the founder, president, owner, offensive coordinator and quarterback of the team.

  • Where we are is very much determined by where we were.

    Pivotal places that formed the foundations of our childhoods or settled in between life’s layers as we grew older can work as magnets that keep us there or pull us back again, or their essence can inspire our choices of other places in which we want to wake up.

  • A hundred years ago the structure at 110 College St. in Buffalo was a much different place than the worn and weathered building that stands there today.

    Built sometime in the early 1900s — probably about 1908 — the Queen Anne-influenced building welcomed guests as one of two hotels in a growing community thriving with commerce.

    Those days vanished, and the structure became a private residence, but if Ron Meyer has his way, those days are on the way back.

    “I had the idea to open a bed and breakfast,” Meyer said.

  • So how does a girl raised in Meade County end up living in Nakuru, Kenya, as an adult?

    It all comes down to faith for Teresa June Webb.

    “I’ve done a lot of short term mission work in a lot of different places in the world,” said Webb, now an ordained minister.

    Years ago, during a mission trip to Nakuru, Webb realized she wanted to return there. In December 2008, she did.

    “God just kind of directed me back here,” she said.

  • Some big changes in the community have resulted from small change contributed by Nolin RECC members. Co-op members and others have voluntarily contributed thousands of dollars in a special account through Nolin’s Operation Round-Up program. Since implementing ORU in June 2006, more than $85,000 has been donated to worthy projects and agencies in the communities.

  • After watching coverage of the Olympics in London, I was in the mood to cook something British.

    I decided, after hearing it mentioned in a couple episodes of “Doctor Who,” to make Jammie Dodgers.

    Jammie Dodgers are the brand name for a British biscuit, or cookies as we call it, made from shortbread and raspberry jam. They also are known as jam sandwich cookies.

  • As we near the end of our alphabetical tour of fruits and vegetables, I remember all the neat recipes I have found. This week is no exception, with watermelon and water chestnuts.

    I love watermelon whether it is red, yellow or pink; seeded or seedless. And I never would have imagined the recipes I have for you — a watermelon drink, a watermelon salad and even a smoothie and frozen pops made from watermelon. They are very interesting choices. I already have tried one of the watermelon salads and it was quite tasty.
