  • A pond is not just a pond, even if the cattle don’t keep its bottom packed tightly enough to hold water, even if brush fills its boundaries until nobody knows it was ever even there, nobody but you. It lives on, just as we all hope to do, in the memories of those who knew it best.

  • Superheroes, princesses and monsters of all sorts will be out on the prowl for candy tonight but for one Elizabethtown woman this spooktacular holiday has been a part of business life for 14 years.

    Jeanine Morrison didn’t originally plan to be in the party or Halloween business.

    Her father is from Muldraugh and after joining the U.S. Air Force, he met her mother in France, where Morrison was born.

    The family moved around a lot and Morrison later joined the Air Force herself, serving four years in Arizona.

  • On the sidelines of her son’s flag football game at Fort Knox, Holly Cusimano coaches the Packers cheerleaders, which include her daughter Mia.

    Between cheers, Cusimano, 33, answers her cell phone.

  • Halloween is upon us and I hope you have your costumes ready and your treats ready for the little ones sure to ring your doorbell. But something else might be a little more pressing if you are planning a Halloween gathering. I have selected some snacks and beverages, from Taste of Home’s website, that will leave even adults shaking in their boots. Enjoy.

  • There are times in the world of food that lines must be drawn and allegiances should be made.

    Times when talk of who has the best recipe comes to a climax and words become actions. The result, in this case, is a little something called spaghetti wars.

    This particular war was fought at Herb Jones Chevrolet, Buick, GMC in Elizabethtown.

    On one side of the war was Milka Pomey. From the former Yugoslavia, Pomey knew her mother-in-law’s recipe, which Pomey has cooked since 1974, would emerge victorious.

    It’s a rare thing to meet someone who you know will have a lasting impact on your life and how you view the world. Few and far between are girls who see and accept life as it is and not through a hazy film of hopeless crushes and interminable teenage drama.

    Fourteen-year-old Jessica Smith, a freshman at Central Hardin High School, is one of these girls. 


    So beautiful, the Temptress’s veil.
    Which shrouds the skin of imperfection!
    Which lolls against, as a cunning mirror,
    a disguise, we follow, in misdirection.
