    Rahman shared with the club how he is following in the footsteps of his father, who was an active member of the Lions Club for many years.

  • It is with deep gratitude that I thank United Way of Central Kentucky, E’town Paints and the six companies that provided the funds, creative ideas and manpower for Project United in which many spaces in the American Red Cross building, both inside and out, received a makeover, and The News-Enterprise for hosting the contest to declare a readers favorite.

  • Tami Delaney helps nourish the soul and body.

    Through a Louisville church group she provides prison ministry at a women’s correctional center; as development director for Feeding America Kentucky’s Heartland, she helps feed the needy.

    “I feel that everybody in the world was put here for a purpose,” Delaney said.

    The Elizabethtown native said she couldn’t see sitting around while there was a “whole vast world of need” beyond her own.


    I have been dressing up ever since I can remember.

    I think my mother is the cause of me loving clothes the way I do. It all started with the Bo-Peep Shoppe, Spalding’s and Dobbs Family Shoe Store in Bardstown. I would walk by their windows every day after school and admire all the outfits on display. I was a pretty-plus child, so all my clothes were expensive because of my size. As time went on and I was able to buy my own clothes, I would get fashion ideas from magazines, TV and just watching people.

  • One of the most popular recipes I’ve ever run is for Amish Friendship Bread, which was first published in my column almost 20 years ago. The reason it’s called “Friendship” bread is because you share the starter. Once your starter has been fed and has completed a 10-day cycle, you use some, save some and share the rest with friends. Folks have told me that they have run into friends who gave them their starter years before, and they are both still making the bread. I love that.

  • Today we are back on a field trip through the culinary alphabet and we are up to the letters H and I. It is a stretch, but H is for honeydew melon and I is for Iceberg Lettuce. I told you it was a stretch, as those two probably should be L and M. However, I have recipes for each.

  • With titles such as Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Empire instead of club president, the Gamer’s Club at North Hardin High School is admittedly a different sort of group.
