Today's Features

  • The column during last week of the month is Recipe Round Up. It is made up of recipes people have lost and I have found for them, recipes that have been submitted to be shared and some that are leftover from prior columns. Please feel free to email or mail those to me in care of The News-Enterprise. I work at home on my trusty laptop and mail and emails are sent to me at my home.

  • Breakfast not only is the most important meal of the day, it is often my favorite, too.

    Unfortunately, I don’t get to cook breakfast during the week as I fly out the door on my way to work, but I enjoy trying recipes that go beyond the cereal bowl.

    This week’s recipes kick breakfast favorites up a notch. They also are perfect for a fancy brunch or breakfast buffet for the family.

    Breakfast Cupcakes are a darling way to combine hash browns and scrambled eggs for a breakfast treat you easily can eat with your fingers.

  • Hardin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary recently donated two vehicles to Hardin Memorial Hospital. Martha Baughman, auxiliary president, presents the keys to Roy Williams, director of security.

  • Three or four times a week for about half an hour, Dot Graham takes walks with her husband in White Mills, a community in which she has lived most of her 81 years.

    Often preferring to walk near the Nolin River, the trip is is just another way Graham has immersed herself in the community in which she continues to keep active. She also has become a vital resident.

  • Well, I was going to spend this space talking about how my son is 5 years old and I can hardly believe it and where has the time gone, etc., etc.

    But then he threw a major tantrum because I wouldn’t let him watch anymore TV so I’m just not feeling it, you know?

  • Eighty-two-year-old Roy Keith may be retired, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t busy.

    Keith provides support, companionship and assistance to those who are sick, facing surgery, homebound or just need a friendly smile.

    “I’ve always been very energetic and enthusiastic,” the Elizabethtown resident said.

    The chairman of deacons at Severns Valley Baptist Church, Keith makes visits to homes, nursing homes and hospitals. Those he visits are not necessarily sick or hospitalized, he said.

  • George Larsen joined the American Legion in July 1960 and has been an essential figure since joining. He has held virtually all key positions several times over. Larsen continues to hold and serve in positions on post, district, department and national committees. Hardin Post No. 113 success in the community can be directly attributed to Larsen’s due diligence for Memorial Day parades and ceremonies, Boys State and veteran affairs.

  • Members of the Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown and the League of Women Voters attended the Recycling Committee meeting at the Hardin County Courthouse on July 17. Akebono Brake Corporation was represented by Senior Environmental Engineer Dave Pedigo.

    The main item of discussion was the Household Hazardous Waste collection from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 7 at Akebono Brake Corporation, 300 Ring Road in Elizabethtown.

  • The monthly meeting of the Central Kentucky Art Guild was held at the guild’s new location, 790 Dixie Highway, Suite 500, in Elizabethtown. The new location will house art, be a location for workshops and have many uses for members including informal art working groups. Future workshops and classes also will be offered to the community there. Phyllis Blakeman was voted Artist of the Month for her pen and ink drawing “Colorado.”

    The next meeting of the guild is at 6:30 p.m. Aug. 19 at Nolin RECC on Ring Road in Elizabethtown.

  • Recent guests of the Radcliff Rotary Club were Peter Giusti and David Keplinger of USA Cares. Giusti, the organization’s president, outlined the history of USA Cares from its local beginnings to its nationwide reach.

    USA Cares exists to help bear the burdens of service by providing post-9/11 military families with financial and advocacy support in their time of need. For information on USA Cares and how you can help, visit USACares.org.
