  • It’s that time of year again for members of the Stitchers Quilt Guild. Every January the guild has a mystery quilt workshop.

    Members are given fabric requirements and cutting instructions ahead of the workshop. Once arriving they are given the first step of sewing instruction, once completing it they move on to the next step and keep going until everyone knows what the quilt will look like.


  • The biggest surprise for Butch Ferrell when he took on the role of commander of Veterans of Foreign Wars, North Hardin Post 10281 about a year and a half ago, was the time commitment.

    The role required him to work eight to nine hours a day, he said.

    “We’re busy all the time,” Ferrell said.

    In his office at the Vine Grove VFW post, which has a membership of 953 and is the only VFW in Hardin County, Ferrell indicated numerous folders for the various programs and assistance offered by the organization.

    I guess the snow lovers are happy this time with the measurable snow we got, with the weatherman talking about a possibility of more this week. Personally I hope his prediction is wrong. But we have to accept what comes, gracefully, I hope.

    We actually had a decent sized snow recently. Kentucky has had a snowy winter this year. I think most of us would rather have one large snowfall and be done.

    HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY. I wish everyone a happy Valentine’s Day, whether you have a valentine or not, enjoy the day and eat a little chocolate.

    Hello friends. I hope you all are warm and are staying off the roads this week. This is a winter like when I was growing up. I remember my Dad when he worked for the state highway department and he would work for days and out at night to clear the roads. He would come home and my mom would cook for him and he would have to go back out to work. The roads were not as good as they are now. The equipment, well it was from the dark ages for sure. But he just did his job and I think he did it well.

    KENTUCKYWEATHER. I really don’t know what to say about our Kentucky weather. It surprises us each day with something new. February has given us rain, snow, sleet and lots of ice. Some in our area reported six inches of snow on Feb. 1 and 2. Also, the groundhog saw his shadow on Feb. 2, which most believe that we will have six more weeks of winter. I really hope they are wrong.

    Ok, so winter seems to be here to stay…and stay, and stay. I have not been out of my house since Sunday. I do not like the snow and ice, but I am grateful that I do not have to get out in it every day for work as most of you do. Even Kenny has not been working because he delivers milk to the schools. I read on Facebook a line from a friend, “Ok winter, I tap out!” Stay warm and stay safe. This too shall pass.
