  • I suppose there comes a time in every mother’s life when she’s sitting next to her child who fell asleep on the couch after puking all over himself and his bed. Twice.

    I know, I know. I’m lucky it hasn’t happened before.

    My husband became ill first, but we all just assumed it was food poisoning since he was the only one who showed any symptoms. He recovered, mostly, and life went on. And then a couple days later, after an afternoon snack of popcorn and Pez candy, Sebastian announced his stomach hurt.

  • West Point holds a special place in the heart of 34-year-old Chris Lueken, president and curator of The West Point Kentucky History Museum.

    “My grandfather was born there in 1924,” Lueken said.

    Though he had moved away from the river town by 1936, Lueken’s grandfather later would return once a week, taking along his granddaughter, who lived in Shively at the time.

  • The Hardin County Democratic Woman’s Club held its first meeting after the summer break at Freeman Lake.

    The club was honored to have Madeline Abramson, the wife of Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson, Romanza Johnson, president of the Kentucky Democratic Woman’s Club, and Susanna French, immediate past President KDWC, member of the Kentucky State Executive Committee and director of the Southern Region of the National Federation of Democratic Women. All three commended the women’s clubs in Hardin County and their support of the many Democratic elected officials.

  • Rineyville’s Boy Scout Troop No. 600 completed a physically and mentally challenging 20-mile hike at Bernhiem Forest on Sept. 16. This event completed the last of the Eagle Scout requirements for the hiking merit badge. The troop began its training for the badge after visiting Washington, D.C., where they averaged several hikes of more than 12 miles per day. The planning and preparation for the trek is intensive; classroom experiences and opportunities shared at the 2011 summer camp made the completion of the hike memorable.
