  • Ray Hicks is well-acquainted with conflict, but he strives to be a signpost pointing the direction to the source of calm.

    Hicks uses the story of Jesus calming the storm as he is out on the sea with his disciples in a boat to illustrate his point of who to turn to. There is no calm in the storm without Christ, he said.

  • Members of the Radcliff Woman’s Club were seeing red at the February meeting as members wore red in recognition of heart month, Valentine’s Day and love.

    Red permeated the meeting including refreshments of strawberry punch, cherry cobbler and other treats.

    The spiritual reading portion was presented by Arveeda Gordon, the story of the elderly couple who defied criticism to keep their much loved, aged horse. Sometime later it was the old equine that was able to lead the other animals from the barn to safety during an unexpected barn fire.

  • According to Linda Funk, Warm Blessings Board chair, “The heart of Warm Blessings is committed volunteers with huge compassion for others and dedication to the program.” Funk estimates there are close to 140 volunteers contributing their time to the program each month either cooking, serving, mopping and cleaning up, driving the van, buying food, stocking and organizing food items, coordinating and directing other volunteers at meal time or delivering meals to seniors who are frail and shut-in.

  • March seems to be a special month for Kentucky. It is particularly special for those who love basketball. This is the month that the NCAA basketball tournament begins, and it dominates the airwaves nationwide. Even the president of the United States has his bracket displayed on national television.


    Elizabethtown Independent Schools and Elizabethtown Community and Technical College would like to take this opportunity to recognize and applaud the efforts of our local Brother to Brother Academy.

    The Academy has been in existence for five years and currently has 21 males enrolled, eight of whom are students from Elizabethtown Independent Schools.

  • Bobby Whitehead built a business and a life in Hardin County beginning at an early age at the Glen Dale Children’s Home.

    His parents died when he was in sixth grade and he spent the next six years at the children’s home. Two of his sisters and a younger brother also lived there, his brother for 12 years.

    Now 61, he values his experience at the home.

  • Students active in performing arts might be accustomed to conveying emotion on stage through their body language and facial expressions.

    But when the performance is a puppet show, that body language and those facial expressions must be communicated through an inanimate object.

    That was part of the challenge for drama students at Elizabethtown High School as they presented “Panther Tales,” a collection of short plays in the form of a puppet show. They performed for younger students.

  • Dean and Beverly Parrish of Boston, Ky., Debbie and John Howlett of Glendale and Barry and Bobbie Jones of Cecilia announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their children, Elizabeth Parrish of Boston, and Stephen Jones of Elizabethtown.
