Today's Features

  • Even with Black Friday encroaching upon Thanksgiving, the holiday is still mainly about spending time with family and a glorious feast of food.

    After the food fest is over the best part of the holiday arrives — leftovers.

    There’s just something about warming up leftovers the day after, sometimes several days after, that makes them taste even better.

  • Heartland Elementary School students worked this month to send deployed soldiers some art with heart.

    Third-grade art club members at Heartland spent time at their recent club meetings gathering items and making crafts to send in a care package to a group of soldiers who came to the attention of art teacher Bethany Whelan.

    Friends of Whelan were planning to create a care package for a deployed soldier, and Whelan decided it would be a great project for her students to make art for the soldiers in the unit.

  • Recently, several members of the Garden Club of Elizabethtown met at the Cunningham Garden behind the Brown-Pusey House and completed a final clean up of the garden in preparation for winter. Throughout the year, five teams of volunteers from the club alternate weeks and plant, weed and trim the garden for the enjoyment of visitors to the Brown-Pusey House. The garden is open to the public and can be rented for weddings, receptions, etc.  

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown members are making plans for the annual Christmas Tea from 2 to 4 p.m. Dec. 1 at Pritchard Community Center. Tickets are $20.

    To make a single reservation, up to eight to a table, call Regina Lancaster, 765-6700. Checks can be mailed to Lancaster at her home address she will give when making reservations. The tea is an elegant gathering and is open to all ages.

  • This time of year, in Elizabethtown, motorists drive by a project important to Billy Pait. For more than a decade he has volunteered on the Christmas in the Park committee.

    Pait became involved with the annual event through his work at Nolin RECC. He’s worked at Nolin RECC for 23 years, starting in engineering and now he’s with member services and marketing. 

  • I have seen many of my Facebook friends posting daily statuses of what they are thankful for.

    I guess the month that plays host to Thanksgiving Day brings that on.

    So over the next several inches on this page you will see some of the things I am thankful for in my life of 52 years, 24 weeks and two days.

    I know many of you will be able to relate.

    I am thankful to have lived 52 years, 24 weeks and two days.

    I am thankful to have a loving and caring family.

          Frosty mornings are what we have been waking up to lately. Winter surely is on its way and possibly some snow for all those snow lovers.

    If you are daring enough to get out on “black” Friday to go bargain shopping just remember to smile at those who get a little pushy or snappy.

    THANKSGIVING. Hope everyone enjoys Thanksgiving with their families. We all have so much to be thankful for.
