Pictured are Anna Harris from Adair County High School, Kylie Keen and Keagan Keen from Elizabethtown High School, and Kelsey Dunkin from North Hardin.

  • Seniors from the Hardin County Senior Center in Elizabethtown enjoy a Christmas potluck lunch in December. They also played bingo and cards.

  • Recently, a girl from Meade County died in a car wreck. She was 27, a young mother of a little boy.

    I recently got to know her, though I don’t claim to know her well. Not like her many, many friends. Not like my new sister-in-law. You see, this girl, Sarah Hottell, and I were both bridesmaids in my husband’s brother’s wedding in December.

  • Leslie Hall found the career she loved after her husband was assigned to Fort Knox. It’s a career that has led to an appointment to a state board.

    After completing a degree in psychology and biblical studies at Tennessee Temple University, Hall participated in an internship at the child abuse council in Georgia and found she enjoyed the social work aspect of what she did.

  • Troop 221 in Elizabethtown awarded Terrance Life, son of Darin and Traci Life, his Eagle Scout award Jan. 19, at College Heights United Methodist Church. He was one of 11 scouts from Troop 221 to achieve the rank of Eagle in 2012. His Eagle project, completed in September 2012, was the repair and refinishing of the deck on the Trucker’s Chapel in Glendale. He successfully completed his Eagle Board of Review on Oct. 29.

  • From left, Willie Lee, Optimist International vice president elect for the Mid-Atlantic Region inducts new members Corwin Lewis, Stephanie Riley, Mario Riley and Angel Hernandez into the Optimist Club of Radcliff. They were given new member welcome packets and member name badges and pins by Jack Banks, Optimist Club of Radcliff president, second from right.

  • It’s the story of a young princess, a septet of dwarfs, an apple, a nap and a handsome prince, or so the story goes.

    Tonight and Saturday, Missoula Children’s Theatre and local children present “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School.

    This is the troupe’s 10th event at the PAC in nine years.

  • Scott Hofstra of Vine Grove is the new chairman of the Central Kentucky Tea Party Patriots.

    He follows Bobby Alexander, who served more than three years as leader of the non-partisan public advocacy group based in Hardin County.

    Other officers are George Pypiak, vice chairman; Joyce Chumbley and Darlene Bohannan, secretaries; and Yvonne Lauterback, treasurer.

    The organization meets monthly, usually on the first Tuesday, at Nolin RECC in Elizabethtown.

  • On Dec. 20, Wesley Hilltop seniors had their regular potluck meal.

    Club members voted to give $100 to Memorial Methodist Church and $100 to Warm Blessings Soup Kitchen, something the club has been doing for the past few years. Randall Clauson will deliver the checks.

  • On a cold and rainy night, I decided to try to make some bread, even though I’m not very good at it. Because I was slightly bored at the time I came up with the idea for the great bread challenge.

    As I name the contestants please hum the “Rocky” theme song in your head to humor me.

    In one corner sat a hand-me-down bread machine that never has been used. In the other corner, traditional bread making.
