  • The Elizabethtown Area Christian Women’s Connection’s bi-monthly luncheon was May 13.

    Approximately 60 members from Elizabethtown, Radcliff, Hodgenville, Vine Grove, Cecilia and Leitchfield attended.

    The guest speaker was Joyce Courtney, speaker and past CEO of Stonecroft Ministries. The title of her talk was “Rejection to Acceptance,” where she told how she overcame the rejections of her life, kept the faith and followed God.

    Mitzi Lynch, minister of music from Immanuel Baptist Church, provided special music.

  • For Recipe Roundup this month, we have quite a variety of recipes. Thanks to Mary Cantwell, we have some really interesting, easy recipes. Two of my friends from Cecilia Homemakers shared with me the recipe for their very delicious chocolate cake and Sharon Johnson from Fort Knox National Co. shared one more recipe from Lucille Masden, a Lebanon Junction legend for great food. Sharon says the roll recipe is a favorite of her family.

The Hardin County Habitat for Humanity held a home dedication ceremony May 19 for the Matthews family home in Elizabethtown.

They were presented certificates by local chair of student art contest Andrea McWright and Fourth District Governor and local member Diane Willis.

  • “Romeo + Juliet” director Baz Luhrmann puts the pages of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel on screen for the summer movie season in “The Great Gatsby.”

    While I’m always a fan of literature in film, “Gatsby” is not the happiest of stories. It’s not what you would call an entertaining time at the movies. Instead, it expresses the central theme that money and decadence can’t make someone happy or make dreams come true.

  • It’s strange how we build such complicated lives even though the most enjoyable things in life are quite simple.

    We have houses too spacious to keep clean and appliances that mimic those in the kitchens of gourmet restaurants. But a crisp set of Downy-scented bed sheets or a window open to spring’s breeze brings an indulgent, satisfied smile just as quickly.

  • Between ordering a cap and gown and the ceremony invitations, senior year can seem to revolve around graduation. But much of the year is devoted to students selecting the next step to take after walking the line.

    With graduation behind many of the local students, now is the time they begin preparing for the next phase of their lives. Graduates will take many paths, including attending college, enlisting in the military or entering the workforce.
