  • On a Thursday night in September in the Mitchell home in Elizabethtown, the aroma of freshly baked chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies mingles with the excited exclamations of teenagers playing football on Xbox.

    The cookies are some of the estimated 5,850 Gena Mitchell has baked over the past six years for members of the John Hardin High School football team.

    As the mother of senior quarterback, Eli, and another son, Caleb, who now plays football at Kentucky Christian University, Gena has found herself enveloped in the sport.

  • My parents have said the first time my older-by-two-years sister stayed the night away from them was the night I was born.

    I … did not wait that long.

    I had no set date for when I would allow my son, my first baby, to stay the night away from us. I figured it would be awhile, maybe a couple years, like my parents.

  • Missy Mills and Glenda Patterson were winners in the 2011 Kentucky Derby Museum Hat Contest. The museum received more than 50 entries and chose 20 hats for the “It’s My Derby” exhibit, which is open until June, according to a museum news release.

  • In a little more than 20 years, Kentucky’s 4-H Shooting Sports Education Program has grown to involve thousands of youth and adult volunteers statewide. Just recently more than 1013 4-H members participated in the state contest on Sept. 17 at the Bluegrass Sportsman’s Club in Wilmore with trap on Sept. 18 held at the Kentucky Wildlife Management Center in Berea. This event would not have been possible without the help of over 350 volunteers along with coaches and parents who supported the youth in their efforts.

  • The annual Harvest Breakfast sponsored by The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown was held Oct. 15. There was a large crowd that came and supported the club’s efforts to raise funds to give to community organizations. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Keith of Elizabethtown were the first to go through the food line and community citizens followed until the last slice of country ham, scrambled eggs, grits, apples, and biscuits were served at 11 a.m. Melanie Hibbard was chair of the event.
