    Prom is the last stop for seniors before graduation. It is a night when they can gather and enjoy music, food and time with friends.

    As Autumn Sandlin, a senior at Elizabethtown High School, said, “Prom is the staple of (the) high school experience. Everyone looks forward to it, sort of a last hurrah before graduation.”

    For many students, prom is a night to go all out and break the piggy bank or their parents' wallets.

  • Some recipes result in delectable treats that make family and friends rave. Other recipes become complete failures.

    An attempt at dried strawberries resulted in the latter.

    The recipe promised chewy and delicious treats that taste like candy but are healthy and natural. Tasty and healthy don’t always go together so this recipe was worth a try.

    It also looked simple. All that was required in the recipe was to halve or quarter strawberries, place them on a baking sheet and dry in the oven at 210 degrees for three hours.

  • Here we are again in the produce section. This month, thinking of the letters N and O, we have recipes for nectarines and okra. I don’t know about you but I am not very familiar with nectarines. I only have tried them on a few occasions, so I am looking forward to learning more about them.

  • Radcliff Fire Chief Jamie Henderson has been tested by fire and ice and has met those challenges while seeking ways to serve the community.
