  • Growing up in St. Louis, Alanna Graham saw what it meant to be in need.

    “I saw a lot of homeless people,” Graham, 14, said.

    When she was as young as 6, her mother had her help charitable groups prepare Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets for those in need.

    After moving to Elizabethtown in 2010, Arvella Graham has continued arranging for her daughter to volunteer, most often for the BackPack Program at Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland.

  • Ricky Ryan and Hardin County Am Rotary Club president Daniel Tabb welcome Dave Weller, the District Rotary Foundation chairman, as guest speaker at the Nov. 8 meeting. He discussed the many positive projects rotary clubs are implementing around the world such as summer backpack reading programs, water projects, continued dedication to eliminating polio and the creation of a cervical cancer detection program in Haiti.


    Fourth District Vice-Governor Pam Harville, recently held a meeting of chairpersons from other Woman’s clubs in the fourth district. The purpose of the meeting and luncheon was for planning a high school age student arts and crafts contest for March 1, 2014. The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown will be hosting the event at First Christian Church in Elizabethtown.

  • St. Timothy’s Anglican Church and 107.3 The Point joined efforts with the Elizabethtown Heritage Council to collect food for Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland during Elizabethtown’s Second Saturday event. 

  • The Radcliff Woman’s Club meeting on Oct. 4 was International Outreach Night. The program began when Maria Batistoni introduced the guest speaker, Susan Pellegrino, who is an English as a second language teacher at Radcliff Elementary School.


    From gingerbread men to fruitcake and figgy pudding, there has been a wide variety of Christmas food traditions throughout history.

    One traditional recipe I have never tried until now is a yule log.

    The yule log, or bûche de Noël in French, is based on an actual log burned in European hearths as a part of winter solstice celebrations.

  • On behalf of the membership of Disabled America Veterans Chapter 003 of Elizabethtown, I would like to express our gratitude to Elizabethtown Wal-Mart and Elizabethtown Golden Corral for their support in recent fundraisers. During the weekend of Aug. 30, members of our DAV chapter collected donations at the Elizabethtown Wal-Mart during our Forget-Me-Not fundraiser.

  • December’s “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” is the late Josephine “Jo” Johnson of Elizabethtown.

    Nominated by her daughters, Bonnie Young and Carolyn Clark, Jo was a homemaker, devoted mother and retired seamstress from Elizabethtown Sportswear. Jo, although small in stature, was a bundle of energy and prided herself on being a hard worker.

    “I may wear out, but I won’t rust out,” she often said.
