  • Like many, I’ve been counting a lot of blessings lately. In this season of thanksgiving, I’ve reflected on the good things in my life and I keep coming back to one overall theme.

    Life seems to be as it’s supposed to be.

    At this point in the path, there is peace. How lucky I must be to look over the years and see that one phase flowed right into the next, leading me to today. Phase by phase, maybe it seems trivial, but I’m thankful for each moment that led me this way and that way.

  • This morning, most Hardin Countians will be waking up to the start of Thanksgiving dinner in the oven. But two area teenagers will wake early to the sights and sounds of the Big Apple as they get ready to dance in the 86th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    Kendra Ball, 17, and Emalee Haynes, 14, are on their first trip to New York City and to say they are excited is an understatement.

    Both girls were giggling with excitement talking about their trip.

  • Barbara Morgan of Stephensburg has loved working with flowers since her youth. On visits to her grandmother's home, she gathered wildflowers and cedar limbs to arrange in old coffee cans. Morgan loved walking through the woods, looking at the wildflowers and moss on the trees.

    She’s grown that love of flowers and plant life into a 21-year career as a florist. Morgan and her husband, Jimmy, have owned The Rosey Posey Florist in Elizabethtown for 16 years.

  • Someone once said the mother-in-law daughter-in-law relationship is the toughest one to manage.

    Can any other woman cook his favorite foods just like mom did or wash his clothes just so?

    Is anyone good enough for the light of her life? Can anyone else treat her son with the love a mother has? Can she graciously move to second place as another woman takes first place in his heart?
    I was thinking about this last week as we traveled eight hours to Commerce, Ga., to attend the funeral of my husband’s mother.

  • The Hardin County Chamber of Commerce recognizes students from area high schools for their academic achievement and extracurricular activities by presenting them with an ABC, Academics Means a Better Community, Student of the Month Award. At the Nov. 14 Chamber luncheon, Ethan Buell from North Hardin Christian School received the award. Pictured are Michael Bateman of Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, this month’s ABC Sponsor, Ethan Buell and his mother, Cynthia Buell.

  • Virgil Willoughby and Troy Dye of the Elizabethtown Police Department present Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland with a check for $600.01 for the BackPack Program.

  • Radcliff Rotary Club recently recognized its Student of the Month, Chaffin Blair, a North Hardin senior. Chaffin is an A student, Beta Club member and Eagle Scout. He is hoping for an appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy. He was presented with a Walmart gift certificate by Club President Dr. Gail Phoenix.

  • Optimist Club of Radcliff chairman Chris Yates and the winners of the fishing derby, Madison Yates, left, who caught the biggest fish, measuring at 7.5 inches long; and Amory Williams, right, who caught the most fish, five. The fish fry and fishing derby was well attended considering the weather. Guests enjoyed a free meal of fish, hotdogs and all the fixings and then went to the lake at Saunders Springs to fish.

  • Judy Banks, director of the St. Vincent de Paul Store, along with store volunteers, Sue Borgerding, Diane Guilment and Dan Petry, present a check in the amount of $1,140 to Mel Miller, president of the St. James Church St. Vincent de Paul Conference. The funds will be used to assist those in need in the community.
