  • The Fourth of July will be filled with picnics and family cookouts.

    Potato salad will be plentiful, many a chicken will be fried and grills will be fired up for a variety of eats.

    Whether you feast at a picnic, spread out on a blanket or surrounding the kitchen table, it’s an American tradition to celebrate our nation’s independence with food.

    Actually, like many other cultures, it’s an American tradition to celebrate pretty much anything with food.

  • 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.
