  • I admit it. I’m one of those tree huggers who recycles. You know, the ones who chirp they reuse junk mail envelopes to write their grocery lists on so they can tuck their coupons inside.

    Well, I don’t exactly do that, but I often feel I’m on a mission to keep things out of the landfill.

    Take office paper, for instance. If one side has printing on it, there are 93.5 perfectly good square inches of space on the other side that can be used for handouts, schedules, lists of classes and the like.

  • Susan Figg has taken care of Elizabethtown’s children for 45 years.

    Over those decades, Figg has worked in preschool, daycare, church nurseries and private child care.

    But that wasn’t her original goal.

    After high school she went to business college in Louisville and did modeling work on the side. Her intention was to work in business administration.

    Her husband, Daryl, joined the U.S. Air Force and the couple was stationed in England for four years.

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown met March 7 at the Brown Pusey House with club President Betty Sue French, presiding.

    St. Patrick’s Day decorations and food were served by hostesses Phyllis Shumate, JoAnn Winkenhofer and Becky Bishop.

    Bobbie Dille introduced Wren Smith of Bernheim Forest who gave the program “Unlock the Mysteries of Hummingbirds” which was received with much interest.

  • Books are exciting, wonderful and brilliant and can be the inspiration for cooking.

    Library Media Specialist Jessica Hundley decided to combine books and food as a reward to some of her avid readers at Bluegrass Middle School. They gathered in the media center last week during the school’s Read Across America emphasis. The event was rescheduled because of snow the week before.

  • The term “lasagna” comes from the Greek word, “lasagnum,” meaning dish or bowl. The ancient Greeks used baking dishes of that name, which they eventually transferred to the Romans.

    The Romans, who ended up using the same style of dish, also developed a type of food which they used the term “lasagnum” for: it was served in said dish, with layers of a pasta-like food and other fillings in-between. With the extent of the Roman Empire, this new “lasagnum” dish spread all across Europe.

    Spring at last, but according to the weatherman, it will be short lived, with extremely cold weather to follow, with showers and snow flurries. But that always is the case during the early and pre-spring weather.

    KENTUCKYWEATHER. A beautiful day full of sunshine on March 11. We took Chloe to Freeman Lake Park. We put her on the swings but she was a little scared. We also showed her the ducks. It’s amazing to watch all of her expressions.
