Today's Features

  • Nine Patchers Quilt Guild members take a break from working on their opportunity quilt for the year. The quilt will be offered as a fundraiser for guild projects and programs. Seated from left, Cathy Garrett, Marsha Carlton, Judy Tennant, Linda Fringeli, opportunity quilt chairperson, Deanna Sharpe and Wanda Spalding; and standing, Cyndy Thompson, Linda Schofield and Jesse Horn. 

  • Amdist the sound of Zumba music and a tropical atmosphere, the Radcliff Woman’s Club set up a table at the Fifth Annual Health and Wellnes Expo on Jan. 5 at Colvin Community Center.

    Manned primarily by Emma Day, Maria Batistoni and Yvonne High, attendees who stopped at their table got a lesson on eating healthy.

    Day, the club’s home life chairman, said the display focused on confronting diabetes and obesity, two growing problems in America.


    Under the Unbridled Learning assessment and accountability system, the main goal of schools and districts across Kentucky is to ensure that all students, when they graduate from high school, will be college or career ready.

    In order to determine how these schools and districts are accomplishing this goal, the Kentucky Department of Education requires each of them to develop and submit an annual comprehensive improvement plan.

  • Sometimes a girl just needs a little something Italian. At least this girl does.

    My favorite cookbook for recipes that are pretty simple is Giada De Laurentiis’ “Everyday Italian.” There are so many great dishes to choose from but Chicken Piccata is the choice for this adventure.

  • Winter is officially under way, that is, as of Dec. 21. When the threat of snow is forecast everyone starts thinking about having soup on hand for family dinners through the long cold months.

    While writing my cookbook, the publisher let me know that it was too long, especially the cake chapter — imagine that. As I shortened the cake chapter, I also had to cut the soup chapter completely, but today I have some recipes from Taste of Home and Family Circle magazines and some I found on the Internet that sound tasty.

  • Being born and raised on a dairy farm had a great influence on Upton resident Chris Hines, who pursued his passions of working and fishing as he got older, overcoming obstacles along the way.

    Hines is a professional fisherman, a city councilman and a business owner.

    “From a young age, I knew what hard work was,” said Hines, 38. “That was something instilled in me at a young age.”

  • New Year’s has passed and those who made New Year’s resolutions probably already have given up on them. Most people who make New Year’s resolutions do it because they feel social pressure. They don’t set goals because they are fully committed to the hard work of goal setting.

    If you are serious about reaching an important goal and are willing to do the hard work to reach that goal, you will want to use a different process. You do not want to use a simple New Year’s resolution to set and meet a goal.

  • At just 17, Bob Bailey lived through the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Now at 88, it’s a day he has never forgotten.

    He was only 16 when he enlisted in the U.S. Army. His father vouched for his age so he could enlist before he was old enough.

    Bailey was stationed at Hickam Field, adjacent to Pearl Harbor Naval Base. A wire fence was all that divided the two. He used to go across the fence to Pearl Harbor to buy commodities because they were cheaper.

    We still have not seen a measureable snow. The kids and I are disappointed but still hopeful.
