    So the end of the world did not arrive last week as some might have feared.

    The thing about impending ends is they give many of us pause for thought.

    Whether it’s the end of the world or the end of the year, some of us began to evaluate what we’ve done, what we’ve left to do and what we’ve only dreamed about doing.

  • “Les Miserables”
    Rated PG-13 for suggestive and sexual material, violence and thematic elements
    Runtime 157 minutes
    Release date: December 25
    Rating: Exceptional emotional performances 

    Audiences have not seen a movie musical the size and scope of “Les Miserables” in years. As it hits the big screen, it’s my hope the large-scale epic movie musical makes a comeback.

  • A lot of people in late October tell Dobbins they wish they could go to sleep and wake up in January.

    Waking up to find it’s the day after Christmas, some breathe a sigh of relief that the day has passed, she said.

  • I did it to myself again.

    Every year I decide I’m going to make things for Christmas. I alternate making cookies and candy for everyone I’ve ever met in my life with knitting warm, woolen items for everyone I’ve ever met.

    I make myself nuts trying to accomplish everything I want to, no matter how idealistic and unlikely to complete I am.

  • Wanda Dobbins’ life has journeyed from the mission field of Chile to helping individuals and families during the end of life.

    When she was a little girl, she always knew she wanted to do something in the social work field, even if she didn’t know at the time what social work was.

  • It’s Christmas morning. Presents are unwrapped and the family is hanging out in their pajamas surveying gifts. A homemade cup of hot chocolate is just the thing to cap off the morning, especially if it’s a snowy or cold Christmas.

    In fact, the perfect cup of hot chocolate is something to enjoy throughout the winter.

    Peppermint hot chocolate is a great seasonal treat, but if you buy enough candy canes during the post-Christmas sales, you can enjoy the flavor long after the holiday is over.

  • The path for the Rev. Johannesburg Boulware, bi-vocational pastor of The Journey church in Elizabethtown, wasn’t without some detours.

    “I didn’t always walk close to God,” Boulware said.

    The Hardin County native attended Mill Creek Baptist Church while a student at North Hardin High School and was called into ministry when he was about 15 years old.

    Having discovered he was dyslexic when he was a junior in high school, Boulware didn’t think he’d do a good job in the ministry. He was reading at a third-grade level.

    Merry Christmas everyone. I hope you get to enjoy good health and fellowship with family and friends, especially your family. For those who have family away, I am sure their presence will be greatly missed. May we hopefully look forward to a happy New Year.
