  • My husband, Chuck, and I pack our suitcases, hop in the Town and Country, and plug in the GPS even when we know where we’re going to visit friends in Tennessee or family in Georgia, Virginia and now South Carolina.

    Now that there’s just two of us, we no longer have to do the hyper-planning we once did to make sure we had enough non-perishable, non-messy snacks and things to do to keep small boys occupied. Those were the days before every vehicle with children on board was equipped with twin DVD players showing SpongeBob or favorite Disney movies.

    For LaRue County Schools

    In the 2002-03 school year, at LaRue County High School, only 3 percent of students with disabilities scored at the two highest levels — proficient and distinguished — on Kentucky’s statewide academic assessment in math. In reading, the percentage was only slightly higher, 7 percent.

    Results from the 2010-11 tests, however, showed significant increases in each area thanks in large part to a change in delivery of instruction to co-teaching.

  • A heartfelt thank you to some very caring and thoughtful individuals.

    Last Monday afternoon, Cathy and her daughter, Summer, stopped at my house to let me know that our side yard, along 1600, was on fire. I called 911, but someone had already alerted the fire department.

  • Allegro Dance Theatre in Radcliff recently held a series of weeks for its ballet intensive studies. The upper level ballet students participated in two weeks of study.

  • There’s nothing better in the summer than to come home from work and make a great sandwich with some sort of fresh vegetable as a side.

    A favorite sandwich is Italian grilled cheese. That might not be the name for it, but for lack of anything else to call the sandwich, we’ll go with Italian grilled cheese. It’s grilled and it has cheese and Italian ingredients, so the name fits.
