    Here we go,  summer has arrived. Time for sunbathing, movie-watching and hanging out with friends. Wait. What’s this about college and putting together a dorm room?

    For many new high school graduates, what to do about the dorm is a major blank spot on the college checklist. There are so many essentials we tend to forget about in our grand plans for college life.

  • Television
    The Doctor of "Doctor Who" is an alien who travels through time and space in a little blue box (it’s bigger on the inside). He fights aliens and befriends others, as he shows his human companions more of the world than they can even imagine. The show ran from 1963-1989, but it was revived in 2005 and it will begin its seventh season later in 2012. Anyone who is a fan of the sci fi genre should definitely check it out, as well as anyone who is a fan of quick-witted British humor.

  • About 10 years ago, Morgan Morrow, 24, developed a desire to visit missionaries in Liberia and collect supplies for the people there. In March, she finally took the leap and went to the country in West Africa.

    It all started when missionary Albert Stewart, a former member of Faith Apostolic Church, which Morrow attends, returned to the church to present what he had been doing as a missionary in Liberia with his wife, Tegeste.

    “When he played the DVD, it broke my heart and I felt a burden,” Morrow said.

  • It’s all about relationships.

    Those connections we forge with family, friends and coworkers that sustain us and prod us and make us better than we could be by ourselves.

    It’s about the bouquet of flowers the friends of a colleague of mine sent her at work when she was going through a rough patch caring for her ailing mother. That circle of friends has taken her out to breakfast, cried with her and listened to her as she’s grappled with the difficult decision of moving her mother, no longer able to stay in her own home, to a nursing home.

    Brothers John and Michael Riggs make volunteering a part of their weekly routine by helping out at Feeding America Kentucky’s Heartland.

    Michael is a sophomore at Central Hardin High School and John is a 2012 graduate.

  • Sarah Selman might have started volunteering at Warm Blessings soup kitchen to get Beta Club service hours, but long after she filled that requirement, she keeps volunteering.

    A 12-year-old student at LaRue County Middle School, she was surprised she liked washing dishes and cleaning up after people.

    “I just like to help them because they are having a hard time,” she said.

    Sometimes volunteering starts with a simple question: “How can I help you?”

    That’s all it took for Bre Sao, of Elizabethtown, to get involved at her church.

    Most days after school and on school breaks she is at Severns Valley Baptist Church, helping out wherever she’s needed that day.

  • THE NEWS-ENTERPRISE

    Five premier Louisville gardens and two homes will be open for viewing Saturday and Sunday during the 12th annual Kilgore House and Garden Tour.

    The gardens at Oxmoor Estate, also known as the historic Bullitt Estate, are the centerpiece of the tour. The gardens include a 100-year-old stand of pines and other trees, a rose garden, perennial border garden and a color-coordinated shrub bed, according to the tour website.

  • Warning, this food column could get a bit nerdy.

    Before it dives into geekdom let’s explore a new recipe found on Pinterest.

    Cookies always are fun to make and there are so many recipes out there today that the possibilities are endless.

    Rollo cookies are very easy with only four ingredients. Mix a box of devil’s food cake mix with two eggs and one-third cup of oil. Then roll the dough in a ball around a piece of Rollos candy and bake.

    The result is a gooey caramel center with a chocolaty outside.

  • This week we find ourselves back on the alphabetical tour of fruits and vegetables. For the letters P and R, I chose plums and radicchio.
