  • In the summer there’s nothing better than a sandwich with some fresh veggies on the side. It might be one of my favorite summertime meals.

    I like to try different kinds of sandwiches and Croque Monsieurs sounded a little fancy so I gave them a shot. The sandwich takes a little longer to make than slapping some meat and cheese on two slices of bread, but it’s worth it.

    This recipe is a twist on traditional French sandwiches often found in French cafès.

  • Speaker of the Kentucky House of Representatives Greg Stumbo addressed the Elizabethtown Rotary Club as President Val Claycomb looks on at its meeting June 25.

  • Bo O’Brien, Chairman of the Elizabethtown Tennis Commission receives a grant from Tommy O’Brien, manager of the Elizabethtown Walmart. The grant will help with the commission’s summer programs.  

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown members have worked all year to raise money for contributions to community organizations and many already have been awarded. At the summer board meeting, members decided to award the remaining funds raised this fiscal year. Those new recipients were Clarity Solutions for Women, CASA and Sunrise Children’s Service. Not a new recipient but receiving a donation was Habitat for Humanity.

  • The 20th annual AUSA Golf Tournament was June 7 at picturesque Lindsey Golf Course on Fort Knox. This year’s scramble was another huge success thanks to the generosity of sponsors, volunteers and players. A field of 117 military and civilian golfers teed off at noon and competed for the top prizes, which included two Hole-in-One Prizes graciously donated by Knox Ford and Swope Family of Dealerships.

  • When the Fourth of July is celebrated, food tends to come in shades of red, white and blue. It happens with everything, but most often in desserts and snacks.

    Cupcakes in a Jar and Firecracker Cakeletts both are cute ideas for July Fourth. But with the second treat it helps to pay close attention to the recipe.

    The first is an easy twist on a cupcake. After dividing the cake mix and tinting it, I recommend adding small layers to the jars. On a few, I put in too much cake mix and the small cakes overflowed the lip of the jar when the cakes rose.

  • I have known today’s One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks since she was a teenager raised in Colesburg. Later, when she started dating one of my husband’s former students, they would stop by for visits and we grew close to them.

    This month’s honoree is Celia Ryan Thomas who is married to local veterinarian, Dr. Mike Thomas.

  • Jay DuPlessis, who will be a senior at Elizabethtown High School, wears many hats in his life. Soccer, Eagle Scouts, history and faith all come together to complete DuPlessis.

    He’s done it all without letting a stutter in his speech get in the way.

    The upcoming seasons will be his third as manager of the EHS girls soccer team and fourth year managing  basketball.

    “I love being around the players,” he said.

  • Depot Tavern hosts Vine Grovestock this weekend, which features live music Friday and Saturday.

    Dave Mason, owner of the Meade County tavern, said he hosted a similar event last year called Meadestock but opted to have the festival during the Fourth of July weekend this year as a birthday celebration for America.

    The Redstone Band hits the stage at 7 p.m. Friday and three bands — Judea Band, After Hours Rockers and Bobbie Stew Band — play between 3 p.m. and midnight Saturday.
