  • Knox Hills associates spent Nov. 29 in the aisles of the Radcliff Walmart as they shopped for toys and stocking stuffers to donate to the Fort Knox Chapter of the American Red Cross’s Santa’s Workshop. The 501c3 non-profit organization, Lend Lease (US) Community Fund (LLCF), sponsored the donation by providing $4,000 to purchase items to stock Santa’s Workshop shelves. Lend Lease (US) is the private partner of the U.S. Army for Knox Hills, the military housing community located at Fort Knox.

  • As our children have gotten older, family Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations have had to morph into something different.

    When the boys were small, it was easier. We just scooped them up for our annual visit to one of my siblings’ homes for Thanksgiving, toys and hand-held video games in tow. Even when they were in college, we would pick them up Wednesday afternoon after classes on our way to Washington, D.C., where we would join cousins who would wait up for us to arrive after midnight the night before Thanksgiving.

    It is finally here. My most favorite time of the year, Christmas. I love the Christmas season more than my birthday and that is saying a lot. As a child, I would start bugging my parents just as soon as all my Christmas gifts were opened about what I wanted the next year. I know now that sounded a bit spoiled to say the least.

    Christmas at our house was a big deal. My mother would cook for what seemed like days in preparation for that day. You know, cook up a lot of food, just in case someone dropped by during the holidays.

  • The tag dangled midway up the church Christmas tree, away from many of the others tags that remained.
    As my wife and I looked at the ages on the tags of the First Christian Church version of an Angel Tree, we looked for a young child, but we came back to the one with the number 14 on it — the age of this Angel Tree child. This young man is the same age as our son.
    We have made our purchases for the youngster — clothes and cologne — and I often have wondered over the last few weeks if this would be all he would receive for Christmas.

  • Debbie Howe is the leader of the pack, but unlike the song of the same name, her title has nothing to do with motorcycles.

    As kennel pack leader at Sam Russell’s Pet Provisions in Elizabethtown — where she has worked for the past two years — Howe provides obedience training for dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds. Her experience working with animals, though, spans more than two decades and has gained a following.
