  • If a picture is worth a thousand words, Abby Coffell has produced enough to fill a library.

    The Elizabethtown resident takes photos of Central Hardin High School wrestling team members on a volunteer basis during matches and tournaments. This year alone she has taken in the neighborhood of 16,000 photos.

    “We did not miss one tournament this season,” she said, noting she took photos of matches even when her son was not competing.

  • My son has been acting decidedly strange lately.

    He’s always been a little bit attached, still refusing to play by himself in his room unless I threaten him. But lately he’s been downright clingy.

    I should love it, right? I should spend all my time focusing on how he’s not always going to want to be right by my side whenever I am in the same building, or hug me 50 times a day. That’s no exaggeration. Literally 50 times. I know because I counted. 

  • On Jan. 4, Central Hardin High School presented a donation of more than $4,000 to the Addison Jo Blair Foundation after a school-wide fundraiser was conducted to raise funds for children with cancer. The Addison Jo Blair Foundation appreciates everyone who donated and took part in the fundraising efforts.

  • Performers tonight at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center will be bending over backwards to entertain their audience — Literally.

    Cirque Zuma Zuma, an African troupe of Cirque du Soleil-style performers, lands on stage at 7 p.m. and brings with it much more than a night of entertainment.

    Bart Lovins, PAC director, said Cirque Zuma Zuma provides a glimpse into another culture, which is “laced” into the performance and possibly unfamiliar to audience members. The presentation is educational while still being entertaining, he said.

  • Here we are at the end of the month with Recipe Roundup and you will find two soups and a dessert.

    I love Pretzel Salad. A good pretzel salad, that is. Some people don’t crush the pretzels fine enough or get the gelatin firm enough and it runs under the pretzel crust and you have a whole new dish. Through my online Taste of Home subscription, I found the Pretzel Dessert. Cherry pie filling is used instead of strawberry gelatin. Give it a try.

  • Sometimes a series of random events can come together for perfect timing to try a new recipe. That’s what happened with the Fudge Lover’s Strawberry Truffle Cake.

    Several recipes from various websites land in my inbox every day. One day, a sweet treat of chocolate and strawberry deliciousness appeared in an email.

    The recipe was tucked away in a file, but never far from my mind.

    In another great surprise recently, strawberries were on sale at the grocery store. Things were coming together nicely.

  • After a career in the U.S. Army and civil service, Willie Little, 74, and his wife, Berlie, settled in Radcliff and have become active in the community, working with many outreach organizations and as advocates for those with special needs.

    Originally from Tuscaloosa, Ala., Little graduated from Tuskegee University, where he met Berlie. After he and Berlie married, Little was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army.

  • Randell and Shirley Johnson of Magnolia celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary Feb. 17, 2013, with their family.

    They were married on Mr. Johnson’s birthday by the Rev. Manley Towles in Jonesville.

    Mr. Johnson retired from General Electric after more than 35 years of service. He had a 15-year career in real estate.

    Mrs. Johnson also worked at General Electric.

    In 1982, they moved from Louisville back home to the Walters family farm near Magnolia.

    They have three children, six grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
