  • The Bluegrass Junior Optimist Club is a youth community service organization sponsored by the Rineyville Optimist Club. Members volunteer at Warm Blessings, the Brown-Pusey House and other service-centered businesses. Pictured are the September and October Volunteers of the Month.

  • Salim Najar was the guest speaker at the Nov. 8 meeting of the Elizabethtown Rotary Club. He gave a presentation on a Rotary-sponsored trip to Africa for several doctors and nurses. The team performed open heart surgery on a number of children and also provided local doctors and nurses the opportunity to learn how to perform the surgery.

  • At the risk of having my house egged for saying it, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” isn’t much of an improvement from its predecessors.

    Even “Twilight” fans would agree, they don’t go to the films for the acting or the quality of film. They go to see the characters they’ve grown attached to from the books and previous films.

  • Dressed in mid- or full-length skirts, arms extended upward, the three women clink their finger cymbals together to the rhythmic drumbeat of the music in the dance studio, their bodies swaying in unison.

    The shirts and blouses they wear are layered and colorful.

    The women are part of an American Tribal Style belly dance class at Blue Rose Studio in Radcliff, and they defy some common — but erroneous — perceptions of the art.

  • Veterans should never be forgotten, and if C.T. Christie has anything to say about it, never will be.

    Christie, a Kentucky Patriots volunteer, hopes to raise awareness of the needs of veterans and encourage volunteerism, especially by other veterans.

    “They just got to get more involved helping each other,” Christie said.

    The Rineyville man follows his own advice.

  • Forty masks from the Mask Museum in the Centro Cultural Antiguo Colegio Jesuita in Mexico are part of a free exhibit at Morrison Gallery at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. “Masks of Michoacán,” displays the collection from Patzcuaro, Michoacán.

    During Santa’s workshop, adults and children can design and create Christmas crafts, including cards and candles. A new project this year will be the creation of gingerbread buckets to be filled with treats.

    “It’s all very creative,” Van Lahr said.

  • Cinderella will be dancing off her slippers Sunday when Allegro Dance Theatre presents the ballet “Cinderella” at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School.

    Many dancers from Allegro return each year to perform and have their ideas of why audiences enjoy the show.

  • The following civil suits are filed in Hardin County Circuit Court in Elizabethtown. Et al is a Latin abbreviation meaning “and others.” Lawsuits give only one side of a disagreement and do not reflect any counterclaims and/or settlements that may have occurred since the initial suit was filed.
