Today's Features

  • I think it’s something about the light. The bright white sunlight has somehow lost some of its radiance, coloring the day with a dimmer spectrum.

    Or maybe it’s the cool, crisp air in the morning. Or the leaves just beginning to show their true colors, sloughing off the green they’ve been wearing all summer.

  • Quilter Hannah Myers, 30, has found a way to turn a craft she enjoys into a profession she loves.

    She’s made about 40 quilts for herself but has stitched together thousands for others. Quilters in the area bring her the top layer of the quilt and she stitches it together for them with her long arm quilting machine.

    Her passion for quilting came from her mother and grandmother. Myers began with sewing clothes but didn’t like it very much. She’s tall and the patterns for clothes weren’t always made for tall people.

  • Members of the Stitcher’s Quilt Guild are finishing up quilts to be displayed at this year’s Heartland of Kentucky Quilt Show Friday and Saturday at Pritchard Community Center. There will be nearly 300 quilts on display, vendors, door prizes, demonstrations and food available. Admission is $5. Pictured are Doneta Faulkner-Elmore with an antique dresden plate quilt and Debbie Owens with a log cabin quilt.

  • Cub Scout Pack 24 of Elizabethtown recently held its annual Rain Gutter Regatta, the first event for the 2012-13 school year. Doubling in size from last year, Pack 24 had more than 30 scouts participate in the boat races. Pictured are two Tiger Cubs facing off in one of the heats. To join, email pack24etown@gmail.com.

  • More than 350 people attended the Flaherty High School reunion Sept. 8 in the newly remodeled and air-conditioned gym. 

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown met Sept. 7 at the Brown-Pusey House. President Betty Sue French presided over the meeting. A moment of silence was held for the passing of two former presidents of the club, Ester Fuqua and Mrs. A.L. Perry,  over the summer and the recent death of  active member Betty Hilliard. Nora Sweat gave a devotional on fall leaves and their colors and how the characteristics of the colors related to being a good Christian individual.

  • President Pat Nuccitelli opened the Aug. 13 meeting of the Radcliff Woman’s Club by welcoming the six guests present and asked them to join them in the evening of camaraderie with club members. The positive air of friendship was further extended by Yovnne High who presented the invocation.

    Member Mary Agnes Sears beamed with pride and joy when corresponding secretary Deoris Browder read a thank-you from Sear’s granddaughter, Teresa Maire Sears, a club scholarship recipient.

  • The Garden Club of Elizabethtown will host a flower planting event from 2 to 4 p.m. today, Sept. 19 at Allegro.

    Members from the Garden Club will work with the residents of Allegro and others in the community in putting together decorative planters. The pots of flowers will adorn resident apartment patios and balconies, as well as the main patio of the memory care unit.

    The Garden Club of Elizabethtown will educate participants about the different types of flowers to be planted and give tips on how to tend the newly planted flowers. Lunch will be provided.

  • If you have spent any time at all with children or teens you've learned they love to snack. Pizza rolls and mozzarella sticks are a staple of many of their diets.

    But these types of snacks don’t have to come from a freezer, deep fried or nuked in the microwave. There are homemade alternatives which often taste better than bags of frozen snacks.

    Baked mozzarella balls and pepperoni pizza rolls might be a couple good recipes to try.

    A blogger who posted a recipe for baked mozzarella balls said they also are a healthier alternative.
