  • Words spoken with kindness can change a life just as words spoken with harmful intent can affect a person for a lifetime.

    Being a people watcher, it always is interesting to watch and listen at airports, malls or social gatherings. It is quite amazing to hear what people say. Sometimes words are hurtful, disrespectful and downright mean. People insert their thoughts and feelings occasionally without filters.

  • Elizabethtown Rotary Club President Val Claycomb welcomes guest speaker State Rep. Tim Moore to the group’s Aug. 27 meeting.

  • During the Stitchers Quilt Guild meeting in August, many quilts were shown that will be in the annual Heartland Of Kentucky Quilt Show on Sept. 20 and 21, at Pritchard Community Center.

    One of the features everyone looks forward to at the show is the Country Store, where quilt-related items are donated by members and sold. There are fabrics, patterns, kits, threads, rulers, quilt tops, quilt blocks, anything to do with quilting. There will be approximately 300 quilts, 20 vendors, door prizes, demonstrations and food.

  • Lately I’ve been hearing the pitter-patter of little feet in my home.

    Yep. My significant other, Rebecca Ricks, and I got a bundle of joy a couple of weeks ago.

    We’re fostering the little girl, and she’s keeping us on our toes.

    Even though she’s just a little more than 4 months old, she has an incredible amount of energy. I sometimes wonder how she can contain herself when I leave her in her crate when Rebecca and I have to be away from our home.

    Oh, did I forget to mention the new temporary addition is a puppy?

  • As a “people person,” Gary Hamm wanted to be a part of a hometown pharmacy to interact with customers. That goal became a reality in 1998 when Hamm opened ApotheCARE Pharmacy in Elizabethtown.

    He worked in several area drug stores but always knew he wanted to be an entrepreneur.

    When a group of doctors approached him about opening a pharmacy in a medical building, he thought it was the right time.
