  • This month’s “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” is a lady I have known for a long time: Shirley Pearson. This month is special because her adult granddaughter nominated her and three of her grandchildren have made comments about their favorite dishes.

    Granddaughter Erin Roberts said, “Mamaw has inspired Travis, Jenna and I to learn to cook and make some of her recipes that we love.”

  • For retired 1st Sgt. Larry Walko, tax season is a time to help others.

    After joining the military in 1971, Walko served more than 20 years in the military and now volunteers at the Fort Knox Tax Center for the joy of helping others.

    “I like helping people out,” he said.

    KENTUCKYWEATHER. Looks like old man winter isn’t done with us yet. We had another snowfall this past week and the temperatures got really cold again. But it didn’t take long for the sunshine to come out and melt the snow away. Spring might officially be here by the calendar but it sure doesn’t feel like it.

    SPRING BREAK. Hardin County Schools are on spring break this week. Have fun, enjoy, but be safe.
