Today's Features

  • On Nov. 14th, Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland delivered more than 4,500 pounds of food to Caldwell County. With the help of their Mobile Food Pantry truck, they were able to provide a variety of food items to the people of Princeton. Among other items, fresh apples, crackers, drinks and baked goods were distributed. These items were all acquired through the Retail Pick-Up Program that Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland has with Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart and other retailers.

  • Like now, I feel guilty for not knitting my children socks. I’m a knitter, a rabid knitter at times, but my children, especially my oldest, are lacking in the hand knit sock department. 

    This is mainly because I’m attempting to knit for hire, as in I would love to knit you a scarf or a hat if you pay me.

  • World travel and ministry, a battle with life-threatening disease and a proclivity toward poetry have given Melsa Thompson a life with a lot to appreciate.

    “I’ve had so many highlights,”the Radcliff resident said.

    Born in Pike County in eastern Kentucky in 1925, Thompson was delivered at home by her great-aunt, who forgot to mail her birth certificate. It wasn’t until 1972, when she was preparing to take a trip to Israel, that she discovered there was no record of her birth.

  • It’s that time of year again. My Facebook timeline is flooded with photos of creepy elves doing creepy things in creepy locations. In other words, the Elf on the Shelf is back.

    I am totally weirded out by this little fellow and would have been as a child as well. I was the type of kid who was scared of marionettes and the giant Raggedy Ann doll in my bedroom. Who am I kidding? Those two things would creep me out today.

  • The Hardin County Chamber of Commerce recognizes students from area high schools for their academic achievements and extracurricular activities by presenting them with an ABC (Academics Means a Better Community) Student of the Month Award. At the Nov. 13, luncheon, Jamey Popham from North Hardin High School received the award.

  • Thanksgiving is a holiday where families and friends sit down to remember what they are thankful for and then eat until they can’t possibly eat anymore.

    A holiday that centers on food is something that brings joy and stress to any cook. Joy because we love cooking and can’t wait to share with family and friends. Stress because we want everything to go perfectly and one little misstep can send us into a Thanksgiving Day frenzy in the kitchen.

  • Here we are again at the end of the month, but more importantly, two days before Thanksgiving. I’m sure you have your menu planned, but just in case, I have some dessert options beyond the traditional pumpkin or pecan pies in this month’s recipe roundup.

    I also have an unusual biscuit recipe that was sent to me by a friend, Ruby Ingram of Cecilia Homemakers. Enjoy and have a very happy Thanksgiving no matter what your dessert choice is.

    Remember, you can share a recipe or have me look for one you might have lost for next month’s recipe roundup.

  • Growing up in St. Louis, Alanna Graham saw what it meant to be in need.

    “I saw a lot of homeless people,” Graham, 14, said.

    When she was as young as 6, her mother had her help charitable groups prepare Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for those in need.

    After moving to Elizabethtown in 2010, Arvella Graham has continued arranging for her daughter to volunteer, most often for the BackPack Program at Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland.
