  • Working in a pediatric ICU, participating in fundraising efforts, creating church health programs and making mission trips are all part of a life Mary Jo Veirs believes she was led to.

    In mid-March, the Elizabethtown woman was named Nurse of the Year by Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, but she credits the entire unit and all hospital personnel with playing a part.

    Veirs called her co-workers at the hospital a “family.”

    Don’t you wish you could go to the store and purchase a bottle of time? Wouldn’t that solve many of your stress moments and certainly help you complete your to do list? Time is something that either is controlled by us or controls us.

    Recently, I was attending a funeral and I heard, “I wish I spent more time with her,” “I wish I talked about this,” “I wish …” You get the point.

  • If you’re like me, you could eat your weight in Japanese steakhouse-style rice.

    It’s probably my favorite part of that kind of meal.

    One day at work, as it often happens in our department, the conversation turned to some of our favorite foods from our favorite restaurants. During the discussion, a coworker brought to my attention that Japanese steakhouse-style rice is easy to make at home. His girlfriend makes it all the time and she gave me a few tips.

  • This month’s “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” is a Hardin County transplant and we are so glad she chose to live here. She is Glenda Jackson, mother of my neurosurgeon, Dr. Thad Jackson. She and her husband moved from Santa Claus, Ind., to Florida, and after Dr. Jackson and his wife, April, moved to Elizabethtown to open his practice, the Jacksons moved here to be closer to family, especially Ethan and Emily, their grandchildren.

  • President-elect Becky Brecht opened the May 14 meeting of the Radcliff Woman’s Club by asking Sheila Enyart to lead in the Pedge of Allegiance. Yvonne High read two poems, “My Inspiration” and “You’re always Welcome in my Heart”.

  • The Goldenrod Homemakers Club held its regular monthly meeting May 8 at the Hardin County Cooperative Service Extension Office. The meeting was hosted by Nadine Bush and Elaine Conder.

    After the regular business meeting, Sheila Stolz gave a lesson on edible arrangements. Lunch was potluck and was served at the extension office.

    The next meeting is the club’s annual picnic, beginning at 10 a.m. June 12, at Freeman Lake Park. The picnic will be hosted by Alice Bennett and Sue Logsdon. The club will not meet again until September.

  • If you’ve bought a country music album lately, you’ve likely heard the results of Sage Benado’s pedal board design.

    A guitar pedal is a foot operated device that’s used for producing altered sound for an electric guitar. Functions such as reverb and distortion can be controlled  using a pedal.

    Two of Nashville’s most popular session recording musicians, Brent Mason and Paul Franklin, are among those who use the Benado Effects pedal.
