  • Cub Scouts from Elizabethtown Pack 668 of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had its annual Pine Wood Derby on Jan. 22. Boys ages 8 to 10 raised their creative cars on a new pine wood derby track.

  • Wes Blair, The Addison Jo Blair Foundation, receives a $500 donation from Scott Kisselbaugh and Sarah Durham, representing employees of Stiles, Carter & Associates in Elizabethtown. The donation aids the foundation in its mission of helping children with cancer at Kosair Children’s Hospital being treated in the Addison Jo Blair Cancer Care Center.

  • It’s not that the folks in Hollywood aren’t trying to make romance movies these days; it just seems they’ve forgotten how to make good ones.

    “Labor Day” has all the right pieces to make a good romance, but loses something in the middle.

    The movie falls somewhere between a romantic chick flick and a coming-of-age film. The story might have been more impactful if it had just been one or the other.

  • I’m thinking about starting a support group for clothes: Socks Without Partners.

    You see, our household is not unlike many others where socks somehow magically lose their partners. I heard a theory once that every now and then, one sock explodes in the dryer to make lint.

    I’m not buying it.

    I think the missing sock was a heel and it just got cold feet, running off and leaving his or her partner alone to take care of their family of little footies.

  • Elizabethtown Rotary Club President Val Claycomb, center, and Program Chairman James Jeffries, right, welcome Dr. Adam Lye of Hardin Memorial Health’s Cancer Care Center. Dr. Lye informed club members of the cancer crisis in the State of Kentucky and cancer treatment available at HMH.

  • Radcliff Woman’s Club members Barbara Proffitt, Becky Brecht, Arveeda Gordon and Florence Mason welcome guests to the club’s table at the Fourth Annual Mayor’s Breakfast.

    Radcliff Woman’s Club members took part in the Fourth Annual Mayor’s Breakfast on Jan. 25 at Colvin Community Center. Club members Becky Brecht, Arveeda Gordon and Barbara Proffitt were there at 9 a.m. to serve attendees glazed donuts.

  • Lois Weaver, chairwoman of the Northern Hardin County Democratic Woman’s Club, recently delivered scholarship applications to North Hardin High School.

    The Northern Hardin County Democratic Woman’s Club gives two $500 scholarships each year. The Jean March Henry Scholarship is given in memory of Jean Henry, who was instrumental in founding the club. The Ollye Masters Scholarship is in memory of Ollye Masters, a lifelong resident of Radcliff and a strong Democratic leader in northern Hardin County.

  • In the dining room of The Lord’s Supper Soup Kitchen in Radcliff, Carolyn Hicks stood at a dry erase board and jotted down the three main units of the metric system: gram, liter and meter.

    Three students who sat at a table nearby leaned forward with interest as Hicks wrote down and explained the meanings of prefixes for those units, such as kilo.

    “The first time I heard ‘kilo’ was on TV, and they were talking about drugs,” Hicks told the students.

  • While getting my hair cut, I started a conversation with some lovely ladies about what they would like to read about. Overwhelmingly, they wanted to hear some ideas and suggestions on helping their children gain and keep confidence in themselves. I remember struggling with that same thought when my children were growing up. As a parent, most all of us want what is best for our child.
