  • For the relatively short time Barbara King has been crocheting, she’s has gone from doing it as a hobby to making a business out of it.

    “I just learned how to crochet in ’09,” the Elizabethtown resident said.

    When King first started crocheting she made baby blankets as gifts.

  • The masked man rides again in Walt Disney’s rendition of “The Lone Ranger.”

    This time around, the western crusader is played by Armie Hammer (“Mirror Mirror”) and Tonto is played somewhat controversially by Johnny Depp (“Dark Shadows”).

    Many moviegoers, including myself, have been skeptical about this new treatment of the beloved western icon. From the commercials, the film looks like Will Smith’s comedy-western flop “Wild Wild West.”

  • Along with many Americans, I absolutely adore the loveable rednecks of “Duck Dynasty.”

    Part of the draw of this phenomenon is even though they are millionaire woodsmen, they are relatable.

    Most families have an Uncle Si in some form or fashion and the families that don’t wish they did. Siblings pick on and pull pranks on each other all the time, too.

    Sometimes, while laughing at their TV antics, I realize I’m laughing because I could totally see someone I know doing something like what I see on the show.

  • Members of the Elizabethtown Police Department, family members, Hardin County Ambulance Personnel and guest Greg Milby from WQXE participated in the annual Torch Run for Special Olympics. The Flame of Hope Torch was handed off by the Hardin County Sheriffs Department and Kentucky State Police at Central Hardin High School.

    The torch was carried up South Mulberry Street to U.S. 31W Bypass to St. John Road to Dixie Avenue and continued up North Dixie Avenue to W.A. Jenkins Road with runners switching out along the course.

  • The Vine Grove High School reunion was June 29 at J.T. Alton Middle School in Vine Grove.

    The group always enjoys visiting with each other as they recall memories from the good old days, in Vine Grove.

Others such as Terry Hampton, class of 1957, traveled from Oklahoma and Dalph Thomas, class of 1954, traveled from Alabama.
