Today's Features

  • We all need a vacation from business as usual. Whether we take a break from school or work, a respite from the daily grind is rejuvenating. We come back from a trip to the beach or the mountains refreshed and ready to return to our responsibilities.

    A vacation is something to look forward to, to dream about when the job turns to drudgery. Sometimes the idea of it keeps us going during a stressful stretch. “Five weeks from today, I’ll be in Chicago,” we tell ourselves. We can hang on a little longer.  

  • On behalf of the Elizabethtown Tennis Commission and the tennis community of Elizabethtown, I would like to thank the following organizations, businesses and individuals for donations, helping to make this summer’s USTA Tennis Block Party such a huge success.

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown recently collected 10 pounds of soda can tabs for the Ronald McDonald House. Diane Willis, district governor and member of Elizabethtown club, delivered them on behalf of the club to the Ronald McDonald House in Lexington. This is a long-standing project of the Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown and most members contribute regularly to the collection throughout the year.

  • The Radcliff Woman’s Club took an active part in the Hooray for Heroes event hosted by AUSA and the Hardin County Chamber on May 19 in Radcliff.

    Becky Brecht and Pat and Bob Nuccitelli set up the booth near the main tent, where a free lunch was served to all active and retired military and their families, as well as to local fire, police and EMS crews.

  • Alumni of Lynnvale High School gathered for the 61st annual dinner and meeting May 18 in the Christian Life Center of White Mills Christian Church.

    Classes celebrating 70-, 60- and 50-year anniversaries were recognized. Louise Young Maupin represented the class of 1942. Graduates from 1952 included Russell Sullivan, Gene Cash, Thomas Skees, Ray Johnson Jr. and Olene Richardson.

  • Nineteen-year-old Andrew Beasley isn’t the first person in his family to attend Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

    In fact, he isn’t the second, third, fourth or fifth.

    Beasley, who graduated from ECTC this spring with an associate degree in arts, is the ninth of his siblings to attend the college.

    “There’s 11 of us, total,” he said. “There’s nine boys and two girls.”

  • Baseball often is considered America’s pastime. As a part of that tradition, fathers and sons flock to the fields in summer to coach and play.

    Jeff Gregory and his sons, 12-year-old Jey and 8-year-old Ryder, continue that tradition.

    Gregory grew up in Elizabethtown playing with the Elizabethtown Area Baseball Commission, staring with tee ball and playing all the way through to the big field as a teen.

    He also played at Elizabethtown High School for coach Ron Meyers and was part of the 1992 state runner-up team.

  • I wish I could say my dad and I had a great relationship growing up, but I can’t.

    He worked a lot, which meant he didn’t see his family much. I often would go to the convenience store he and my mom owned just to hang out as a way to spend a little time with him. I thought then the time meant more to me than it did him.

    He was more consumed with paying bills than spending time with his children and enjoying life, it seemed.
