Today's Features

  • As the fall chill hits the air, it’s the perfect time for making a yummy pot of soup.

    Soup recipes can range from incredibly complex to super easy.

    And soups often become tradition for specific dishes and circumstances. When you don’t feel well, you want chicken noodle soup. When you’re making a grilled cheese sandwich, tomato soup is always a must. But for something a little bit more fancy you can find multiple variations of soup.

  • Today’s “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” is a lovely lady and was nominated by her daughter-in-law, Lu Woodford. I had Lu’s daughters in class and I see her quite often while stopping in at Surgical Specialists. It was obvious why she nominated Mary Lou Woodford when I got to reading about her.

  • Mid-Kentucky Chorus will perform a special cantata as part of the Lincoln Days Celebration and Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibit, New Harmonies, on Saturday at St. James Church in Elizabethtown.

    The performance at 7:30 p.m. will honor President Abraham Lincoln and early American music heritage.

    Under the direction of Teresa Tedder, the Mid-Kentucky Chorus will perform the cantata, which includes parts of Lincoln’s famous speeches and key moments in his life as president.

  • Chris Bauer recalls his parents teaching him that whatever he does should be done right and he should leave things a little better than when he arrived.

    The Central Hardin High School assistant principal and athletic director takes that philosophy seriously and tries to instill that attitude in his students.

    “I want the spirit of ‘We need to thank and give back to the community that has done so much for us,’” said Bauer, 42.

  • Like adults, children have a wide range of preferences when it comes to books. But also like adults, a book or book series sometimes becomes a craze.

    Kids’ picks range from the classics to hit series. In between are books feeding specific interests, from princesses and trucks to vampires and athletes, area library staffers said.

    Movies often bump a book to the top of the must-read list.

  • Mr. and Mrs. Paul Greenwell of Elizabethtown announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Emily Susan Greenwell, to Ian Christopher Blaiklock, son of Steven and Karen Blaiklock of Elizabethtown.

    The bride-to-be is a 2008 graduate of Elizabethtown High School and a 2012 graduate of Transylvania University, where she received a degree in biology. She is employed by Ideal Image in Louisville.

    Hello, this week we are on fall break. I hope everyone is fine and having a good week off. There is not much going on and not much to write about.

    FALL. Fall is here and the weather is coming on and setting in for winter. The leaves are changing and the wind is getting that little bite of a chill in it. When I was a little girl, my mother always would say she could breathe better in cold weather. Now that I am getting older, I understand what she was talking about.
