Today's Features

  • The time had arrived.

    For months my girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I had anticipated this day. We had parts in a scene being filmed for a forthcoming independent film.

    Very brief, nonspeaking parts, but you know what they say: There are no small roles, only small actors or small people or something else small or, like, you’re really petty or something if you’re not a team player, or yes, we have no bananas, or something. Anyway, you get the picture.

  • John Hardin High School senior and country and contemporary Christian musician Josh Proctor collected two of the three awards for which he was nominated by the Tennessee Country and Gospel Music Association.

    Proctor took home the Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year awards Sunday from the TCGMA. He also had been nominated for Songwriter of the Year.

    The Elizabethtown singer and songwriter is 18.

  • Leanna Milby, 28, isn’t the type of person who wants to move away from her hometown. She not only stayed close to home, but is passionate about the community she grew up knowing.

    She grew up in LaRue County, lives in Sonora, works at Apprisen in Elizabethtown and has become an active member of the Elizabethtown Junior Woman’s Club.

    As a financial services specialist, she’s able to help those dealing with bankruptcy and performs credit counseling to help customers get out of debt.

  • A lifetime of work in politics and government began for Radcliff resident Les Dawson when he was growing up in West Point.

    Dawson, 83, recalls being as young as 7 when his grandmother — who he described as a “strong Democrat” — would take him along with her on local government visits.

    “She knew everybody in the courthouse,” he said of his weekly trips there.

  • The theme for this year’s Ready Campaign promoting September as National Preparedness Month is “Resolve to Be Ready in 2012.” This public awareness drive encourages individuals and community leaders to make the resolution to take the necessary steps to be prepared for emergencies.

    Preparedness is an individual responsibility. By being prepared as individuals, we free up valuable resources, including allowing our first responders to assist those who are in the greatest need.
