Today's Features

  • A trio of military veterans hopes audiences sound off with laughter when they perform free as stand-up comics at Fort Knox.

    Known as The GIs of Comedy, Thom Tran, Jose Sarduy and Tom Irwin present shows at 7 p.m. today at the Saber & Quill and 9 p.m. Saturday at The Landing Zone.

    A cash bar and limited menu are available at both shows. Those attending must be 18 or older.

    Both shows are open to the public.

  • The Watoto Children’s Choir visits Valley Creek Baptist Church on Thursday for a music and dance performance.

    The group previously performed in churches in Hardin County, including a performance at Valley Creek.

    “We are excited to have the Watoto Children’s Choir at Valley Creek for the second time,” worship pastor Josh Brown said. “They travel through our region every two years, alternating between the eastern and western parts of the United States.”

  • Last week as I stood on the back porch, I noticed a tiny purple bloom in a random spot on the lawn.

    It was nothing spectacular, just a tiny flower amid a lawn of brown grass.

    The notable thing is at various times during the year for the past few years, tiny blooms have popped up in that same area at random times. And usually not the same color or type as its predecessors, but they always are tiny flowers.

    One time, a white flower appeared. Another time, it was yellow. Yet another time, we got one that was mostly pink.

  • What is advertised as incredible should more accurately be called slightly funny in Steve Carell’s latest film.

    The title role in “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” is not much of a departure for Carell. If you’ve seen his character Michael Scott on television’s “The Office,” you’ve basically met Burt Wonderstone. He’s Scott with a spray tan, sequins and a velvet outfit performing magic — a little less Scranton, a little more Vegas.

  • The Hardin County Chamber of Commerce recognizes students from area high schools for academic achievements and extracurricular activities by presenting them with an Academics Means a Better Community Student of the Month Award. At the March 13 chamber luncheon, Kendra Ball of Central Hardin High School receives the award from Philip Tabb-Hodges Auction/Gold Star Realty, this month’s ABC sponsor.

  • Radcliff Woman’s Club member Josette Roush donates children’s blankets and Easter baskets for children at SpringHaven Domestic Violence Center, to Administrative Assistant Stephanie Nall. Radcliff Woman’s Club members donated laundry detergent, fabric softener, bleach and cleaning supplies.

  • Lion President James Jeffries presents the Glendale Lions Student of the Month Award to East Hardin Middle School seventh-grader Jada Young. Jada is the daughter of Lucas and Carla Young of Elizabethtown. The club meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month.

  • Christy Frazier, left, and Judy Bridges, right, Nine Patchers’ Quilt Guild members, welcome Lorese Harper, who created Neat Nest in 2009 to help people clear clutter and deal with disorganization. She presented a program on how to organize members sewing areas and the rest of their homes. Her suggestions for purging, sorting and organizing inspired members to go home and contain to maintain. The guild meets the fourth Tuesday of the month at Nolin RECC and has a workshop day on the second Tuesday of the month.

  • Recently the Classic Corvettes Kentucky car club officers made a donation to CASA of the Heartland on behalf of the club membership. Pictured from left are Linda Gregory, Debbie Beyerlein, Debbie Smith and Cait Embrey, both of CASA, Bob Schramm and Ron Cousins.
