  • Dogs can perform in amazing ways — dogs in show competition, dogs working as herders for livestock or dogs working military assignments.

    And since the massacre at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Conn., comfort dogs have been performing in a compassionate way.

  • Lynne B. Robey has accepted the position as executive director for Central Kentucky Community Action Council Inc. Robey has directed several programs within the agency over the past 14 years.

    Central Kentucky Community Action Council Inc. provides jobs for 267 employees and operates programs in the eight counties of the Lincoln Trail Area Development District, assisting more than 9,000 families including 24,000 persons.

    The agency is located at 332 Hood Avenue in Lebanon.

  • Councilwoman Wanda Wilson of Earlington and Councilman Stan Holmes of Radcliff attend the City Officials Academy in Lexington, held by the Kentucky league cities.

  • Nine Patchers’ Quilt Guild Board of Officers for 2013 are from left, Mary Ellen Coty, first vice president; Cyndy Thompson, secretary: Rebecca Stewart, president; Judy Tennant, second vice president; and Wanda Spalding, treasurer. The Guild offers a workshop day the second Tuesday of the month and a meeting of the general membership on the fourth Tuesday at the Nolin RECC.

  • Employees and staff at Allegro show their support of the American Heart Association’s fight against heart disease and stroke by wearing red on National Wear Red Day on Feb. 1.

  • Elizabethtown Lions Club members wore red to a recent meeting in support of the “Go Red For Women” heart disease awareness, the number one killer of women.

  • To say Kelly Hamlin hopped into the passion of her life is an understatement.

    Though her day job is in marketing and sales at 94.3 The Wolf in Elizabethtown, Wednesday nights and various other times during the week she coaches the Jumping Knights at St. James Catholic Regional School.

    Her interest began about seven years ago when she saw the Jumping Hawks of LaRue County. Her daughter Kayleigh, then 6, was enamored by them, she said.

  • This month we will celebrate Presidents’ Day. This past summer I started to think about how someone in the office of president can affect generations to come as I was visiting a national park. Our country truly is America, the beautiful.

    There are so many national parks to visit that are awesome and fun for the entire family. What if someone did not see the need or have the vision 100 years ago to preserve these beautiful areas of our country? They could have fallen into private hands and the public would not have privilege to see these gorgeous sites.

  • Dwayne Mollison’s journey in life might be said to have had as many twists and turns as a pretzel.

    A retired master sergeant, associate pastor, new business owner and soon-to-be licensed counselor, Mollison has navigated those twists and turns in his life on the way to success.

    Growing up in St. Louis, Mollison came from a single-parent household as an only child. A popular belief about being an only child didn’t hold true, he said.

    “She didn’t spoil me,” Mollison said.
