    Bobbie Dille, second vice president, introduced the program presenter, Kay Melton. Melton shared unique and creative designs in gifts she had made for friends and family.

  • On April 8, four scouts with Cub Scout Pack No. 130, chartered by Memorial United Methodist Church in Elizabethtown, were awarded the Boy Scouts of America Dr. Charles H. Townes Supernova Award for completing rigorous requirements in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

  • Elizabethtown author Russell Lunsford has published his second children’s book.

    “Benjamin Nathan Tuggle: Adventurer, General George Washington and the American Revolution” was published in March and is Lunsford’s second children’s book featuring the title character. Benjamin Nathan Tuggle is a 12-year-old who finds he can time travel.

    Lunsford’s first children’s book was “Benjamin Nathan Tuggle: Adventurer, Daniel Boone and the Settlement of Boonesborough, Kentucky.”

  • It has been about six months since we welcomed a Pomeranian puppy into our home and Zorro has kept things interesting.

    Not only has he been dubbed Zorro the Destroyer, because of his penchant for turning everything into personal chew toys, but he has become an active sparring partner for Tybalt.

    Maybe one of the most noticeable contributions Zorro has made to the household is providing a springboard for new language.

    Let me explain.

  • The AcoUstiKats will bring four-part harmony with a pop sound to the Historic State Theater at 7:30 p.m. today.

    Fresh from appearances in season four of NBC’s “The Sing-Off,” the AcoUstiKats are an a cappella men’s chorus from the University of Kentucky. The group’s website describes its sound as “southern charm with a whole lot of swag” and “Justin Timberlake meets Kentucky Fried Chicken.”

    This was a disappointing week for basketball fans in Kentucky. The Wildcats lost in the NCAA championship game by a score of 60-54. One obvious difference was free throws. Connecticut made 10 of 10 free throws and Kentucky made only 13 of 24. Kentucky missed several front-end of 1-1 free throw situations in the second half when making two foul shots would have changed the game completely.

  • After almost 15 years in Congress and a few years rest, Ron Lewis said God called him to return to the preaching ministry.

    It was a simple decision for the 67-year-old who has moved from the inner halls of Washington, D.C., as the 2nd Congressional District's member in the U.S. House of Representatives to the pulpit of Youngers Creek Baptist Church in a rural corner of eastern Hardin County.

    “When God calls you, you feel at peace and content,” Lewis said.

    Finally it seems as if spring is ready to get here. I have returned from Missouri safe and sound and have been keeping really busy since coming home. As you will see as you continue reading the article today, things are getting busy in many of the areas around us. I love it because it means summer is revving up and all the great things that come with it. Thanks to all who took the time to notify me of upcoming events.

    So sorry I was unable to send my news to the paper last week. I had it typed and ready to go, but my desktop was in the shop and my laptop computer wouldn’t recognize the address I was trying to send my news too. I kept trying but you know those technical items have a mind of their own, and won’t cooperate. Someone called to find out if I was sick. So some of the announcements didn’t get in, and it’s too late this week.
