    The Zonta Club of Elizabethtown will begin the New Year at its monthly meeting Jan. 26 by installing new members and awarding the $500 scholarship to the Amelia Earhart Essay Contest winner. The scholarship is given to a local high school girl preparing for college.

  • I truly love all vegetables, but I just forget about them sometimes. Broccoli is one that’s easy to forget. For years I would regularly steam broccoli and serve it with a little butter or lemon juice. Then I sort of got tired of that. Nowadays, I tend to use broccoli in a salad, and nearly always, it’s one of these two salads featured today.

  • Early in December more than 30 members of the Garden Club of Elizabethtown attended the club’s annual Christmas luncheon/meeting at the Brown-Pusey House.
    The meal was catered by Back Home, and everyone enjoyed the food.
    Ann Kowalkoski read a touching Christmas story, and members shared the camaraderie of the season.
    During the meeting, Joyce Effinger presented a donation from the Garden Club to Twylane Van Lahr, director of the Brown-Pusey House. The Brown-Pusey House is one of many recipients of donations from the Garden Club.

    I am delighted to announce the adoption of differentiated instruction in the Fort Knox Community Schools. 

    This initiative is adapted from Carol Ann Tomlinson’s 2002 book on teaching and learning, "Differentiating Instruction for Academic Diversity." 

  • I really love both of these recipes that are featured today.

    Photographer Jill Pickett shared this recipe for Nuts and Bolts with me recently. I was so glad to get it because I have always loved Nuts and Bolts but had lost my original recipe. I’ve looked online several times and there are many recipes out there, all variations of this one, but this one suits me perfectly. Jill’s Grandma Pickett always made this for family gatherings, especially at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and Jill’s mom, Theresa, has carried on this tradition.

  • For readers in the northern Hardin County area, the name Estelle Harper might ring a bell. She worked at North Hardin High School for more than 40 years, and her daughter, Suzanne Shircliff, worked there for 10 years. Suzanne’s mother was her mentor, much like my own mom.
