  • Candy, Christmas and kids go together, and that fact isn’t taken for granted by Radcliff resident Josette Roush.

    It is an indulgence Roush, 87, believes in so much she makes sure children at SpringHaven Domestic Violence Program receive it.

    “I’ve supported SpringHaven for many, many years,” Roush said.


    It’s Christmas again, and much like the rest of the adults, I’m wondering where in the world the year has gone. It seems like just last week when I was celebrating New Year 2013 by going to bed at 10:30 p.m.

    But to my children, this Christmas took ages and ages to get here, even with the daily countdown my son has been doing for the past few weeks.

    “Thirteen more days until Christmas! Nine more days! Five more days!”

  • Ever wonder what turn your life may have taken if you didn’t meet someone?

    I have been thinking about that a lot the last few months, pretty much ever since it was decided that after more than 30 years removed from seeing each other, my two very best friends and I from college would meet on campus, where our lives were in many ways shaped.

    It has been a long 30 years since we graduated from Morehead State University and went in our own directions.

  • Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown members and their husbands placed the Christmas In the Park display of the Brown Pusey House at Freeman Lake Park on Nov. 21. Dr. Bob Clagett is the artist who designed the display several years ago and assisted with the set up this year. During the summer months, Dr. Clagett set up the Brown Pusey House display in his back yard to give it a much needed touch-up and extra strength support. Pictured from left, Jo and Dave Griffith, Betty Sue and Larry French, Dr. Bob Clagett and Gail and Chuck Hinton.

  • American Legion Auxiliary Unit 113 hosted Lunch with Santa for approximately 50 residents from Kensington Manor Care and Rehabilitation Center and Elizabethtown Nursing and Rehabilitation Center on Dec. 12. Residents were treated to a lunch, gifts and pictures with Santa. Three veterans from World War II and one veteran from Korea were honored with special recognition by the American Legion Riders. Volunteers from the American Legion and American Legion Auxiliary hosted the event.

  • Girl Scout Daisy Troop No. 664 members raised money for the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree. Along with leader Lucy Reese and co-leader Shanon Gibson, the scouts went to Kmart in Elizabethtown to shop for their child in need.

  • A pair of holiday traditions at Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center will expand to include more events, transforming into a festival.

    The Nutcracker Festival not only will feature “The Nutcracker Ballet” and “Clara’s Tea Party” — two Christmas favorites — it offers a special free Dance-a-long Nutcracker concert, open market of sweets and other items and a Festival of Nutcrackers.

    “We always like to offer something a little bit new,” said Diane Hafer, PAC secretary.

  • I know many of you have your Christmas trees up, but I want to tell the recipe, you might say, for a Christmas tree.

    First, there is the tree. While growing up, we always had a cedar tree from our farm. Later, Mike and I bought our first trees from a tree stand until the fresh tree succumbed to the artificial tree, but where is the aroma of a fresh tree?
