  • Parents must be careful what they write. First, your kids just are not as interesting to everyone else as they are to you. A hard truth, but the truth.

    And second — probably more important, too — some day when your little nuggets become Internet savvy, they will find every word you ever put down about them.

    I’m sorry, Quinn, but this is too good not to share.

    Little Quinn, my 3-year-old son, also known as The Hurricane, The Giggler and Quinny Monster, accompanied me to Kroger last week.

  • Many members of the Stitchers Quilt Guild entered quilts and other items in the Hardin County Fair.

  • I had lots of plans for the summer.

    I was going to take the kids to every amusement-type place we could find that was close and not outrageously expensive. We were going to play at the park multiple times a week. We were going to be creative every day, with lots of coloring and gluing and cutting. The TV was going to be a once-in-a-while concept, not an everyday, multiple-times-a-day thing.

  • Commitment often is scarce these days, but it was on full display during this last White Mills Days. With record temperatures and just miserable conditions, scores of people volunteered their time and sweat to help make our festival successful. I want to thank everyone who contributed so much to help with the program. The men who grilled the chicken are to be commended for an excellent job laboring over a hot fire. The members of White Mills Volunteer Fire Department contributed numerous hours to help with security and setting up.

  • Peyton McKenna Fields, 11, daughter of Casey Fields and Stacey Loftus of Elizabethtown was named winner of the Miss Pre-Teen Nelson County Fair Pageant on July 18.
