  • When it comes to graduation ceremonies, tassels, mortarboards and the notes of “Pomp and Circumstance” are clear indications — tradition is important in commencement.

    Most ceremonies include traditions commonly found at commencements around the country, but some local schools work to include aspects that are special to their students and faculty.

  • Art for Jisun Mudd is expressing herself through color in a way that brings joy to others.

    She began painting as a teenager and was able to use art as an outlet when she became very ill. Mudd saw art as a gift from God to help her through her illness, and she’s continued for 30 years.

    Mudd also is a local hairdresser, working at Headquarters Barber and Styling in Elizabethtown.

  • On any given weekend I find myself on a Bro Ride.

    No, the Bro Ride isn’t me cruisin’ in my car with a bunch of buddies. The weekend Bro Ride is what I call car time with Tybalt, our Pomeranian.

    Like many companions of the canine ilk, Tybalt loves to go for car rides. Neither the destination nor the duration of the ride matter much.

  • At the invitation of the chief justice, Kentucky judges recently came together for a joint two-day college to focus on a variety of topics of interest to trial court and appellate judges.

    The Administrative Office of the Courts hosted a Spring Judicial College for Supreme Court justices and Court of Appeals, Circuit Court and District Court judges April 23 and 24 in Lexington.

  • Several Elizabethtown NARFE Chapter No. 1050 delegates attended the Kentucky NARFE Federation Convention April 9 through 11 in Bowling Green.

  • Carina Tiotuico, of Elizabethtown, received the 2013 Outstanding Teaching Award at the 15th Annual Morehead State University Piano Festival and Monster Concert. Each year, one piano teacher is recognized based on the level of preparedness, talent and professionalism of their students in both ensemble and solo genres.

  • An active life seems to keep Alma Hahn young at 75.

    The substitute teacher sings in a woman’s chorus, gives piano lessons and in the past 15 years had a stint teaching English in China and participated in mission trips to Germany, Taiwan and Brazil.

    “I just think the Lord has answered so many of my prayers,” the Radcliff resident said.

    A proponent of good nutrition, Hahn and her husband, William, 76, still ride bicycles.

    “We don’t take any medications,” she said.

  • As far back as I can remember, my mom has sewn.

    She made dresses for my sisters and me, always in the latest styles and colors. Mom might use a paper pattern for a baseline, but she added her own unique touches. When I was a girl, some mornings I would wake to find a new Barbie doll dress on my night stand. When my boys were young, she made surf shorts for them in wild prints.

  • Optimist Club of Radcliff President Jackie Banks, right, and Willie Lee, sponsor, left, present a new member packet and pin to James Anderson.
