Today's Features

  • The Northern Hardin County Democratic Women’s Club members recently attended the state convention in Frankfort.

    JoAnn Winkenhofer was elected the state second vice president and was named the recipient of the Anne Shanks Bourne Award for outstanding Democratic leaders who are on par with excellence in pursuits of life and exemplary in their support of the Democratic party, community service and in a wide variety of worthwhile projects.

  • If you haven’t heard, fall is the season for really good apples and if you haven’t already thought about making something with apples, hopefully you will after today’s column. George and Nora Bowles, friends from St. James Catholic Church, recently called about a recipe for apple butter not using apple cider. Cider is costly, but apple cider vinegar costs much less. I have since found a recipe for those of you who love apple butter that you could make any time using applesauce or stewed and pureed apples.

  • At any given moment in any given location around the world, groups of men, women and children might spontaneously begin dancing in a synchronized routine.

    Thank God I am feeling much better than I did last week as I wrote this column. I still feel sort of like a zombie with all the medication I am taking, but at least most of the pain has gone from the inflammation of my sciatic nerve.
