  • The Stitchers Quilt Guild ended a great year with their annual holiday party that included a meal and gift exchange. Then, as has become a tradition, they had a Mystery Quilt Workshop that was taught by Christina Cooper, pictured. Everyone was given fabric and cutting requirements in advance and then worked on small sections at a time. When the mystery unfolded, everyone had a beautiful scrappy star quilt, which goes with the theme of 2012 – “Year To Slash Your Stash and Scraps.”

  • Joseph Francis Vaillancourt died Jan. 31, 1972. He was my dad, Daddy, and along with being my father, he was just a wonderful friend.

    It is hard to believe we lost him 40 years ago. He has been dead longer than I knew him — I was a 23-year-old with my own apartment, my own car and in my second year at West Hardin High School, teaching home economics.

  • Since the days of Aesop, the tortoise and hare have been locked in an epic race.

    The Missoula Children’s Theatre tells the story a little differently and incorporates local children into the telling.

    In the MCT version the reptiles and mammals have an annual race in West Sandy Bottoms. Hype men play up their favorites and fan clubs cheer on their picks.

    The lines are drawn between green and brown animals, a sort of racial divide.

  • The following property transfers are listed as given on deeds at the Hardin County Clerk’s Office in Elizabethtown.
