Today's Features

  • As you know, for the past several months I’ve been featuring “The Best” recipes – those recipes that really are my favorites. Today, I want to feature “The Best” cook and friend – Polly Shaw of Elizabethtown.

  • Knowing only that she wanted to work in an office some day, Loretta Crady took a job at Burger Queen in Elizabethtown during her junior year at East Hardin High School.

    Today, Crady is the Hardin County circuit court clerk, leading an office charged with record-keeping for the county’s trial courts.

    “If you told me in 1973 when I graduated I’d be working here I wouldn’t believe it,” Crady said.

  • Six.

    That’s how many times my oldest son and his wife have moved in four years of marriage.

    The first was to Bloomington, Ind., as she joined him where he was working on a master’s degree at Indiana University.

    Nine months later, after he graduated, they moved to an apartment in Lexington across Nicholasville Road from Fayette Mall.

  • Volunteering to keep the books and stats for North Hardin High School boy’s basketball team is a natural fit for Rick Skeeters.

    Head coach Ron Bevars coached Skeeters when he was a student at NHHS.

    “I played on Ron’s very first team,” Skeeters said.

    “We go back,” Bevars said, explaining Skeeters was on his team in 1971 when Bevars arrived at NHHS.
    Skeeters has been watching NHHS basketball teams since 1968-69, he said.

    By Skeeters’ senior year, Bevars was head coach.

  • On Feb. 6, the Radcliff/Fort Knox Convention & Tourism Commission donated $1,000 to the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center. The monies are to assist with on-going programs at the center.

  • Elizabethtown High School students Audrey Duke and Nate Wilson were guests at the Elizabethtown Rotary Club meeting Feb. 7.

  • At the Jan. 24 meeting of the Elizabethtown Lions Club, past president Lois Shinkle spoke to club members about a recent visit to Haiti. Lion Shinkle shared the improvements she saw and the many challenges that still remain. She bought back a message from the people of Haiti, “Thank you for all America has done (to help us), please don’t forget us.’”

  • I took a drive the other day and the silver Envoy found some neat places in Hardin County.
    They were the fields of play for our children from long ago, it now seems.
    I drove by University Drive and found myself looking at the ball fields and remembering all the time our family spent there over the years playing, coaching, watching and working in a hot concession stand.

  • If you’ve been to a basketball or football game at Central Hardin High School, you’ve heard his voice bellowing over the PA system. Mike Bell has been the voice of CHHS since it opened in 1990.

    Prior to that, he announced games at East Hardin when it was a high school. He announced for girls’ basketball going all the way back to the 1970s.

    His office at Glendale Christian Church is lined with plaques featuring previous teams and their photos. There are even more in his office at home.
