  • Spring break is almost here. For this adventure we’ll take a look at some easy, fun treats to make while the kids are home from school.

    The first are Nutter Butter ice cream cone treats. These are easy because they only involve dipping and decorating. You can use normal size Nutter Butter cookies to look more like an ice cream cone or the smaller circle size — “smaller, round” cookie that looks more like a waffle bowl of ice cream.

  •  John and Karoline McLaughlin of Vine Grove will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary today, March 8, 2013.

    They met in Germany and were married March 8, 1963.

  • Cordelia Ball’s passion for helping children through Court Appointed Special Advocates began with a personal experience.

    When her brother — one of nine siblings in the family — died in 1987, her family discovered his wife had fallen on hard times and difficult situations affected their three children, she said.

  • Whether you are a grade-school or high-school fan, watching a basketball game can get exciting. Quite frankly, many times it can get mad, and you have to wonder what happened to good sportsmanship.

    I’ve had the pleasure of attending and following some local high school games. The madness that happens at basketball games is not just in March.

  • The Home Builders Association of Kentucky recently recognized the work of two area builders.

    Bobby Whitehead, a custom home builder for more than 27 years, was honored with the Norris “Pup” Robertson Builder of the Year ward.

    Whitehead is the sixth recipient the award, which applauds outstanding efforts on behalf of Kentucky’s housing industry, according to a press release.

    Whitehead appreciated being recognized by his peers, he said.

    “It was pretty awesome,” he said. “I was just in shock.”

  • The Radcliff/Fort Knox Convention and Tourism Commission was among the 600 exhibitors at the 2013 Ford Indianapolis Sports, Boat and Travel Show. The 10-day event was Feb. 15 through 24 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Commission representatives were able to connect with thousands of potential travelers looking for vacation ideas. Attendees expressed great interest in the grand re-opening of the General George Patton Museum of Leadership on June 14, as well as the newly restored World War II barracks.

  • Last week my older sister presented me with a piece of cardboard I had saved from when I was a kid.

    This wasn’t just any piece of cardboard, though.

    It was a 45 record by The Archies that had been printed on the back of a cereal box from the ’60s. Honeycomb, if I remember correctly.

    My sister had found the 45 when going through some boxes of memorabilia or something. She noticed an inscription on the back I had written, declaring it was my property.

    I was probably 8 or 9.

  •  At age 90, Bill Campbell has seen his share of war, segregation and difficult times.

    Despite that, the Radcliff resident managed to complete 27 years of military service, raise a family and help children with learning disabilities.

    March is here and hopefully it will bring some warmer temps. My opinion is if we aren’t going to get any snow, it should be warm. The flowers are blooming and the birds are singing so spring must be on its way.
