  • Thomas Wolfe once said, “You can’t go home again.” I disagree.

    I go home to a wonderful community festival, White Mills Days, as often as I can. It always is on the weekend of the Fourth of July and is because of the good graces of the White Mills Christian Camp who owns the old Richardson Hotel.

    The camp is second to none with wonderful facilities and this weekend, the White Mills Civic League holds its festival on their campground.

  • The following misdemeanor cases are found in Hardin District Court. KAPS stands for Kentucky Alternative Programs. Totals include court costs and/or public advocacy fees. Birth year is in parenthesis.

    Daniel C. Dews (1955). Theft by deception, cold checks. Posted a cash bond for restitution and paid court costs.

  • Author Martha West will be signing her children's book "Run, Run as Fast as you Can" Sunday at First Christian Church in Elizabethtown. The book follows Gingerbread Lamb who is trying to stay on the right path but comes in contact with obstacles along the way.

  • Comedian Groucho Marx is attributed as saying “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”

    Jim Weise is outside of a dog in a big way.

    Weise was among those who helped re-establish Friends of the Hardin County Public Library last May, and he became president of the organization.

    “We started out with a book sale and had a second book sale,” Weise said.

    After the second book sale, membership grew from around 25 to about 67, he said.

    Hope everyone had a great week, I have been enjoying the summer weather. My son Wayne brought us some squash from his garden the other morning. What a delight to have fresh vegetables. I fried some and fixed a small one to eat raw with a sandwich one day for lunch. Those were the yellow squash, I haven’t tried any of the zucchini yet.
    BACK HOME. Ruby Parker returned home last week after an extended visit with her daughter in Georgetown. After falling and breaking her wrist several months ago.

    Hello friends, as always I hope all of you are doing well. The heat is really getting up there and I just wonder how hot it will get before summer is over. I hope not too bad.

    What a great week I have been having. I have been at First Baptist Church of Eastview every night for vacation Bible school. The youth I work with from Christian Youth in Action have been teaching and doing a wonderful job. The kids are having so much fun and learning so much about the Bible. It ends tomorrow, Thursday, and I will be sad to see it end. It has been amazing being with Brother Scott Curle and all of the folks from the church.  Thanks to Michelle Hart for arranging it all and allowing us to come and teach.
