  • My husband says he minds the clock while I maintain the calendar.

    True enough. I have trouble getting where I’m going on time. I’m the one who slips in a few minutes late to meetings, classes and even sometimes church services. He’s patiently tried to fix this flaw, suggesting helpfully I might want to add 30 minutes to the time I think I’ll be finished with a task so as to have enough time to get to the next. It might make sense in his mind, but not mine. If I know I have 30 minutes …

  • Jackie Banks has three main loves in her life — her daughter, her job and her community.

    As president of the Radcliff Optimist Club and as Upward cheerleading commissioner at her church, Banks is able to express that love in helping children in the community.

    Originally from Mississippi, she moved to Hardin County 17 years ago after living in Germany for three years.

    Now, 47 and a single parent of a 17-year-old daughter, Jasmine, she lives in Radcliff and works as director of purchasing at U.S. Cavalry.

    Vignola has performed with many musicians including Ringo Starr, Madonna and the Boston Pops. He was named to Les Paul’s Five Most Admired Guitarists list.

  • I must admit, until July of 1986, I never knew Elizabethtown existed.

    And if it wasn’t for coaching baseball, I probably would have gone at least a few more years without knowing this gem off Interstate 65.

    Coaching a 13-year-old All-Star team from Shelby County was my introduction to what I now know as E’town, and more importantly, a place I consider my home.

  • After working in the sheriff’s office for 28 years, in one year and 11 months, Hardin County Sheriff Charlie Williams will say goodbye to the badge and settle into a quiet life on a farm near where he was raised in Franklin Crossroads.

    He grew up the third of five sons.

    “I live within a mile of where I was born and my plans are to die within that mile, hopefully of old age,” Williams, 59, said.

    In 1978, he started firefighting and was one of the charter members of Kentucky 86 Fire Department.

    As I write this on Tuesday, we are having another beautiful day, which I appreciate very much. Only a few days more than a month until spring. I can hardly wait, as we can have much winter weather between now and then. There always is an appointment to keep some place, and I certainly don’t wish to drive anymore on slick roads. I did my share of it while I was a mail carrier, but at my age, I don’t feel it is safe to take the risk anymore.
