  • Back row from left, volunteers Linda Cook, Mereie Best, President Jerilynn Kabel, Helmwood Healthcare Center staff, Pat, Tim and Debbie, middle, Minnie Bright, Iva Phelps, Jack Allen and Delbert Love and front, Addie Taylor, Anna Stark and Betty DeWitt gather during an Easter lunch for residents hosted by American Legion Auxiliary Unit No. 113 Elizabethtown.

  • Here we are, five days from Easter Sunday. Most people use this as an occasion for a family dinner. Baked ham seems to be the favorite for most, but turkey, fried chicken, pulled pork or a chuck roast are close seconds.

  • When you think of an Easter meal, a few constants come to mind such as ham, deviled eggs and an assortment of traditional side dishes.

    When I think of Easter dinner, some sort of coconut dessert is usually a must. A beautiful light and fluffy coconut cake with jelly beans on top is a favorite and coconut pie is absolutely delicious.

    Honestly, I only recently discovered a taste for coconut. As my tastes have changed with age, it’s become a  favorite flavor. And, I love the smell of coconut.

  • The following marriage licenses were issued in Hardin County:

    Jill Marie Parham, 46, Louisville, and Mark Andrew Smith, 53, Owensboro.

    Gwendolyn Thompson, 45, Radcliff, and Timothy Ray Brashear, 53, Elizabethtown.

  • A few weekends ago, I boldly went where so many other nerds had gone before: comic con. It wasn’t the big one held in San Diego each year, but it still had some big-name guest and lots of excitement.

    I didn’t cosplay — dress up like a character — but did spend several days deciding which sci-fi T-shirt to wear. I finally picked one featuring Marvel character Loki, mainly because I have a slight crush on the actor who plays him, Tom Hiddleston. The friend who went with me wore a TARDIS dress.

  • The summer movie season kicked off early this year with the opening of Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” last weekend.

    It could be said the season will belong to Marvel. “Captain America” opens and “Guardians of the Galaxy” closes out the season in August and there are a couple of other Marvel offerings in-between. Marvel Studios and Disney are producing these two most-anticipated superhero offerings.

  • Joyce Lupresto, who was voted Artist of the Month at the March meeting of the Central Kentucky Art Guild, stands with her pastel painting, “Cabin in Brown County.”

  • Even away from her career as a pediatrician, Anne Stevenson is using her skills to help kids.

    After taking a leave of absence from her practice to stay home with her own children, Stevenson became involved as a grant writer with Court Appointed Special Advocates — a group of trained volunteers who act on behalf of children caught up in the justice system because of family matters.

  • By the time this column is read, my niece, McKenzie, will be Mrs. Loyd. I had forgotten in a short two-year span how the wedding-planning game works. I must say it still is the same. I have tried to be a help to my sister in the planning and dragging of wedding materials.

    McKenzie is the quiet storm of the four grandchildren in our family. She is the one you never know what she is thinking unless you ask. So when she announced she had met the man of her dreams, we were shocked and happy. Then the icing was put on the cake when he asked her to be his bride.
