  • The Classical Christian Choir of Central Kentucky sings at the state capitol in Frankfort, performing “America the Beautiful” before the House of Representatives. They were invited by State Rep.  Tim Moore. The choir, directed by Leigh Ann Pierce, is part of a regional choral program for homeschool students based in Elizabethtown.

  • Elizabethtown band Bury the Lede took its name from a journalistic term that refers to presenting secondary information in a story first while relating the most important points or facts later.

    Andrew Critchelow, guitarist and vocalist, said he decided on the name after seeing bands with names using the word “bury” in a more literal sense. He wanted to offer a different take and because he always had been interested in journalism, he found the phrase to fit the bill.

  • Food sometimes can be a tricky beast. A cook is sometimes torn between a dish looking good and tasting good.

    I tend to favor tasting good over looking good. Sometimes the most well-presented dish can have little to no taste and the ugliest thing on the plate is absolutely delicious.

    That is where this week’s recipe comes in. When it comes out of the oven it does not look beautiful, in fact, it could look slightly burned, depending on how you cook it. But the taste is delicious.

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown held its annual fundraiser games day April 17 at the Brown-Pusey House in Elizabethtown.

    Many members participated in the event as well as guests in games such as bridge, Rook, Scrabble and other board and card games.

  • I received a nomination for “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” for a young lady, Angela Robinson, with a passion not just for cooking but creating meals.

  • The adage “time is money” has special significance to Elizabethtown resident Leo McMillen, who regularly donates his time and railroad pocket watches for benefit auctions.

    The auctioned watches typically raise twice as much as they’re worth or more, McMillen said.

    Shop With a Cop and the Elizabethtown football program are among the causes to which he has donated watches. McMillen, 75, has plenty of watches to choose from when donating because he has been collecting them for years.
