  • WJCR-FM 90.1 is showing its appreciation for listeners with a concert at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School.

    “The Listener Appreciation Concert is our way of saying thank you for listening to and supporting our stations,” station manager Gary Richardson said. “Without the support of our listeners there would be no stations.”

  • Thank you to all of the runners, sponsors, donors and volunteers who made the USA Cares Run for Life race Sept. 28 the best one yet.Because of area support, Run for Life was a tremendous success. The goal of increasing the runners from last year, 111, was met and exceeded with a total of 312 registered runners.Through sponsorships, registrations and donations, we were able to raise $32k, which means more support for the military families we serve.

  • Some people like Halloween for ghosts and ghouls. Others, like me, are in it for candy and treats.

    I remember when you could bring homemade treats to school parties. Cookies, candy, popcorn and caramel apples also were a welcome treat.

    While schools have limited what homemade goods can be served in classrooms, you still can whip up tasty treats at home. Some are goodies the entire family can have fun making together. 

  • Here we are at the end of the month again and I have several interesting recipes for you.

    A reader emailed me and asked me about Mr. Gene Baskett’s Apple Banana Cherry Nut Bread from a recipe last year. It seems the original recipe didn’t specify the type of cherries. The Baskett family said it’s chopped maraschino cherries, the type often used for ice cream sundaes and such. This would be an excellent time to make some of these loaves and freeze them. The recipe calls for apples, which are in season.

  • Hardin County plays host to the Traditional Music Festival for the 19th year this weekend. The centerpiece of the festival is the mountain dulcimer and musicians say it remains a relevant instrument because it is easy to play and the tunes are familiar.

    “The mountain dulcimer was born out of a desire for an instrument that had a drone sound or a similarity to the bagpipe sound as many of the Appalachian ancestors would have remembered from Scotland and Ireland,” said Pam Story of the Heartland Dulcimer Club.

    Hello friends, this weather really has changed, it’s so cool now I get cold to the bone. The old people would say that when I was little. Regina and I were talking about that, her dad Eddie Peters would say that and we wondered at our age, about 12 maybe 14, what he meant by that. Now we know. The bones do get cold and hurt sometime.
