    For many children the holiday season conjures images of Santa at his North Pole workshop supervising his elves in their toy-making activities, preparing to fulfill wishes expressed in letters from all over the world.

  • Strains of a cappella music will fill the air when Street Corner Symphony performs Saturday at the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown.

    The show begins at 7:30 p.m. with an optional dinner before the show.

    Street Corner Symphony were runners-up on the NBC show “The Sing-Off.” The group will perform songs from the show, new songs and maybe some holiday music.

  • The great thing about traditions is they can be started at any time, modified or adjusted, and they can be shared with those who are special to you.

    They don’t have to make sense to anyone but those who participate, and even then, they don’t necessarily have to make sense as long as they are mutually enjoyed.

    Over the years I’ve probably described a few traditions my girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I share.

  • “Rise of the Guardians” offers audiences a different view of popular childhood holiday icons.

    Santa, or North, (Alex Baldwin, “30 Rock”), the Tooth Fairy, or Tooth, (Isla Fisher, “Confessions of a Shopaholic”), the Easter Bunny, or Bunny, (Hugh Jackman, “Real Steel”) and the Sandman, or Sandy, are protectors of childhood dreams, hopes and innocence.

  • Lee and Mary Smith Wiley of Radcliff will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary today, Nov. 30, 2012.

    Mr. Wiley retired from the Army as a sergeant first class with the engineer board and from TACK. He attends New Hope Missionary Baptist Church. Mrs. Wiley retired after 29 years from Rivercity.

    They have three children, Paxton Wiley and Tanya Wiley, both of Radcliff, and Anthony Wayne Wiley of Clarksville Tenn.; seven grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.


    The adage is true. It does take a village to raise a child. And, the older the children get, the more people it takes.

    We live in a wonderful community where there are people who graciously help our school district with their time, talent and treasure. The village lends a hand to its children so they can become the next generation’s leaders in making the village stronger and even more fruitful.

  • At 1 p.m. Saturdays, VFW Post No. 102891 hosts a turkey shoot in the rod and gun club building on the property. Pat LeChevalier, VFW member, is chairman of the turkey shoot committee. He has several assistants to ensure the event is conducted safely. Participants shoot at a paper target and the one with the most pellet holes in the center wins a prize. There usually are 18 to 25 participants, two of whom are female. LeChevalier gives a safety briefing before shooting begins and a safety person monitors each position.

    To join, call 877-2138.

  • This month’s “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks,” Peggy Hash, is a well-known lady in different circles of friends. Her husband, Gordon Hash, nominated her.

    He told me if I ever needed someone for those good cooks I write about in the paper, his wife was an excellent cook. After talking with her, I realized she, indeed, is an excellent cook and a good planner and manager not only for typical family meals, but meals for many people, all with ease on her part. She truly is amazing.

    Her sister, Shelia Stith Boros, added her endorsement.
