Today's Features

  • Antsy McClain and the Trailer Park Troubadours will perform in concert Saturday as part of Acoustic Guitar Masters Concert Series 13 at Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center.

    The concert begins at 7:30 p.m.

    McClain is a singer and songwriter who infuses his material with humor and stages his shows from a fictional trailer park called Pine View Heights. He modeled the location after his childhood surroundings and experiences.

  • Jessica Chism, 32, always has been involved in artistic and creative endeavors, but didn’t put brush to canvas until about five years ago.
    Now, inspired by nature and movies, she uses painting to relieve stress and express herself, which is hard for the self-professed introvert.

    She has sketched since she was a little girl but learned she could paint after helping with a SpongeBob SquarePants mural in her son’s room. After discovering painting, within six months she completed about 30 portraits, she said.

  • Gingerbread houses are a staple in Christmas baking and decorating.

    The house does not always have to be made out of gingerbread though. They also can be built with graham crackers, a trick I learned in a home economics food class, back in the day.

    First thing you need in making the house is construction materials. Graham crackers should be first on your list and next is a variety of candies to decorate the house. The candy part can be whatever you like. Finding colorful candies in different shapes makes a pretty house. Christmas colors can work, too.

  • Nora Sweat, center, Elizabethtown author of “Mama and Me: A Collection of Central Kentucky Recipes,” recently appeared on “Great Day Live” on WHAS-TV with hosts Rachel Plat, left, and Terri Meiners. Sweat spoke of her book nd demonstrated a pumpkin roll as an alternative to pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. 

  • Each year the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service and Nolin RECC, along with many other local businesses and volunteers, have sponsored the American Private Enterprise program.  Working closely with counselors from North Hardin, Central Hardin, John Hardin, Fort Knox High, Elizabethtown High, Faith Home School and North Hardin Christian School, more than 40 high school juniors attended an interactive two-day seminar that increased their knowledge of the American economic system.
