  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown held its 48th annual harvest breakfast Oct. 20 at Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethtown. Cora Ellen Mckinley, first vice president, served as overall chair with Jo Griffith as chair of kitchen operations. Nora Sweat and Marie Deaton served as co-chairs of the country store.

    Father Stan Osborne brought his eight-track tape player to play a Kate Smith tape “God Bless America” and Sarah Fellows demonstrated Zumba.

    The club voted to donate to the Feeding America Back Pack Program.

  • Guilt. If I’m perfectly honest, that’s how my adventure in coaching started. But despite somewhat ugly beginnings, some things do turn out beautifully.

    This summer, my 4-year-old son was wild about playing soccer. With gusto, we registered with a local youth league, but it turned out more volunteer coaches were needed. To be turned away would have broken his heart — true for most young athletes, I’m sure.

  • From burnt biscuits to a variety of shoes, the Radcliff Woman’s Club Oct. 9 meeting was interesting.

    Information on how to retain members was shared. Along side the information, the hostess committes provided refreshments.

    Arveeda Gordon served up some virtual burnt biscuits — the topic of her devotional. A little burnt biscuita, she explained, is not a big deal for we learn to accept the good and the bad in one another.

  • I can tell you if you have a sister or a brother and you constantly argued as youngsters, there is hope your future together will be gentler.

    I am living proof.

    Growing up, it was just my sister, Shannon, and our parents in our home. No use considering our dog, T.J., because he just bounced around from room to room.

    My sister and I didn’t get along. Whatever she did drove me nuts; whatever I did irritated her. It went on like that for years and years. There were times I could walk by her and not even look her way.

  • I’ll never be a domestic goddess.

    I’ll also never enjoy the phrase “domestic goddess,” but that’s a whole other column.

    But I’m not sure I was made for this type of work. I mean, I don’t necessarily care I’ve had stacks of magazines on the end table for months and every month the stack just keeps growing. I keep meaning to go through them and get rid of the ones I don’t need — probably all of them — but I don’t ever seem to have the time. Or the desire.
