  • About 12 years ago, Pat Bohannon seized a unique opportunity.

    That was when she began working with Hardin County Schools Experience Children’s Early Learning, or ExCEL, program, which helps teen parents with child care while keeping them from dropping out of high school. It was a chance, Bohannon felt, to honor her own mother, a nurturing parent who had just died.

  • After graduating from college, Amy Aldenderfer left her home in St. Louis and headed to Elizabethtown.

    Becoming the Hardin County Extension Agent for Horticulture 18 years ago was a good fit, she said, considering she started gardening at a young age.

    She took after her grandfather who always was a good gardener. She started working in the family vegetable garden when she was as young as 6 and found it fit her personality.

    She was pleased to find out when she went to college she could make a career of something like that.

    It should be fun to be at the top of the performance world. In fact it should be fun to perform. Most of us would assume that any performer we see is having fun on stage. When performers are paid large sums of money, we really believe they are having fun.

    As some of you may know, I babysit during the day. The other day, the 2 year old that I watch kept going to my husband Kenny and saying, “My Tenny, My Tenny.” Kenny was just eating up the fact she was claiming him as her own at least until she started saying, “My Joshua, my Terri, my kitty cat, my toys etc.” Two year olds sure can build you up and then tear you down in the same breath.
