Today's Features

  • Some things are not meant to be viewed by the public — strategic game plans, personal account information and me trying to get my dance on with the Nintendo Wii “Just Dance” game.

    That’s not to say I won’t jump onto the dance floor in public. It’s more like saying when it comes to trying to mirror someone else’s practiced dance routine I look like a giant muscle spasm.

    Dancing isn’t generally something I’m self-conscious about, but the Wii version is a whole different matter.

  • The annual District Recognition Dinner for the Lincoln Trail District of Boy Scouts of America recently was held at St. James Catholic Church. This dinner serves as a format to honor adult leaders, scout troops and Cub Scout packs, as well as individual scouts who have had an outstanding impact in the district through service to their unit, the district or the community at large.

  • Bah.

    I’m tired of cold. And it hasn’t even been that bad this year.

    But man, I spend a little too much time daydreaming about long, warm days filled with running and playing and swimming and better behavior. That last one is for my 3-year-old, who currently thinks he is in charge of everything and we all should do whatever he wants, whenever he wants. It’s been lots of fun.

  • Ann Case’s story begins in the deep South. She’s from Albany, Ga., and it was at the University of Georgia where she began a journey that lead her to Kentucky.

    Here, she is known as a longtime teacher in Hardin County Schools, a pianist who shares her love of music and someone who tells a tale with comedic flair.

  • Michael Niemeyer is this month's student editor.

    Michael is a 16-year-old junior who is homeschooled. He is involved with Boy Scouts, ECA Soccer, Teen Court, his church youth group, RYSA soccer and Faith Homeschool.

    He enjoys guitar, reading and soccer and hopes to become a doctor or lawyer.

    Michael joined Rising Voices to improve his writing skills and develop a more varied writing style. He also wants to inform his peers trough writing and gain a better idea of how the news media works.

  • In jail, on his knees, Rick Green’s life changed.

    “I prayed to God right there on the jail floor, ‘please kill me or heal me,’” Green said, following years of struggling with addiction.

    At that point in his life, he was tired of living and in jail for a DUI. He was chased by the Indiana State Police for more than an hour and couldn’t remember any of it when he woke up in jail.

  • One of my all-time favorite meals is a special egg salad made with grilled asparagus served on a good multi-grain bread. I always have a loaf of Tastefully Simple’s Wheat Beer Bread made, so this is my bread of choice. The recipe for the egg salad originally came from Debbie Ferrante, who had a coffee café, Uncommon Grounds, just off the square in Elizabethtown some 15 or 20 years ago.

    You can make the egg salad with boiled asparagus, but it is much better with grilled or roasted asparagus.

  • I featured Mary Beason of Elizabethtown in a food column 21 years ago, and her recipes have always been some of my favorite ones.

  • When we moved to Hardin County some 25 years ago and I started attending Radcliff Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), I fell in love with it. We had lived in Lexington previously and I had been employed as secretary to the minister of music at the church I attended, Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The church in Lexington was wonderful; it was a very large church that had a great, large choir and many activities for people of all ages.
