  • The Watoto Children’s Choir visits Valley Creek Baptist Church on Thursday for a music and dance performance.

    The group previously performed in churches in Hardin County, including a performance at Valley Creek.

    “We are excited to have the Watoto Children’s Choir at Valley Creek for the second time,” worship pastor Josh Brown said. “They travel through our region every two years, alternating between the eastern and western parts of the United States.”

  • Last week as I stood on the back porch, I noticed a tiny purple bloom in a random spot on the lawn.

    It was nothing spectacular, just a tiny flower amid a lawn of brown grass.

    The notable thing is at various times during the year for the past few years, tiny blooms have popped up in that same area at random times. And usually not the same color or type as its predecessors, but they always are tiny flowers.

    One time, a white flower appeared. Another time, it was yellow. Yet another time, we got one that was mostly pink.

  • What is advertised as incredible should more accurately be called slightly funny in Steve Carell’s latest film.

    The title role in “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” is not much of a departure for Carell. If you’ve seen his character Michael Scott on television’s “The Office,” you’ve basically met Burt Wonderstone. He’s Scott with a spray tan, sequins and a velvet outfit performing magic — a little less Scranton, a little more Vegas.

  • The Hardin County Chamber of Commerce recognizes students from area high schools for academic achievements and extracurricular activities by presenting them with an Academics Means a Better Community Student of the Month Award.

  • Radcliff Woman’s Club member Josette Roush donates children’s blankets and Easter baskets for children at SpringHaven Domestic Violence Center, to Administrative Assistant Stephanie Nall. Radcliff Woman’s Club members donated laundry detergent, fabric softener, bleach and cleaning supplies.
