Today's Features

  • Hopefully everyone has seen the red flowers VFW and Ladies Auxiliary members distribute throughout the year. The following is background information behind those flowers.

    Since 1922, the Buddy Poppy has been an integral part of the VFW community. As VFW’s official memorial flower, the Poppy represents the blood shed by American service members. It reiterates VFW will not forget their sacrifices.

  • In the spirit of last week’s Thanksgiving feast, I continued the feasting with sweet potatoes. Restaurants now are offering sweet potato side dish options all year long, so it’s OK to continue the recipe options for this vegetable beyond Thanksgiving.

    Paula Deen’s Facebook page promoted a Sweet Potato Balls recipe so I decided to give it a try.

    Warning No. 1, this recipe is very messy. Forming mashed sweet potatoes around marshmallows gets sweet potato goop everywhere.

  • Thanksgiving is over, the “planned leftovers” are finished and today I have some new recipes for you to try.

  • East Hardin Middle School sixth-grader Preston Thomas was presented the November Glendale Lions Student of Month by Lion Barbara Hagan. Preston is the son of Chris and Laura Boozer of Elizabethtown.

  • SpringHaven recently received a generous donation from the “Riders Against Domestic Abuse” organization. Pictured is the founder of Riders Against Domestic Abuse Eugenia C. Angibeau and fellow members donating gift bags and shelter needs.

  • I admit it. 

    I’ve been listening to Christmas music for at least the past three weeks, much to my husband’s irritation. I mean, it’s not like it’s on all the time, and it’s only in the car when he’s not riding with me. But still. He knows and is therefore sufficiently bothered.

    And yet, I don’t care. 

  • About 7:30 a.m. on April 15, while on ambush patrol in Afghanistan, former Rineyville resident Josh Pitcher stepped on an improvised explosive device and lost his left foot.

    A month later, he attended his fiancée’s graduation ceremony at Eastern Kentucky University.

    And on Oct. 20, Pitcher completed the Army 10-Miler in Washington, D.C., toting a 40-pound rucksack for good measure.

    “I don’t give up,” Pitcher said. “It’s a quality I developed in ranger school.”

    Can you believe the month of November is almost over? Many people still are doing yard work despite the cooler weather. Now the Christmas decorating will begin. Have you been naughty or nice this year? Hopefully there are more nice than naughty people.
