  • Hardin County AM Rotary President Cindy Gibson, Bob Wade, Aaron Miller, Glen Downs, Jay Gabhart and Rick Walters at the new member induction of Aaron Miller and Glen Downs into the Hardin County AM Rotary Club on March 8.

  • Italian dishes go beyond a bowl of spaghetti and meatballs. It’s frustrating when some restaurants slap spaghetti sauce and mozzarella on a dish and call it Italian.

    While many Italian dishes have these two ingredients, they are neither a prerequisite for Italian cooking nor do the addition of these two ingredients suddenly make a recipe Italian.

    In fact, many Italian dishes use no sauce at all. Chicken saltimbocca is one of those dishes.

  • After last week’s column on Warm Blessings, I have another wonderful community outreach done by some of the employees at Fort Knox National Co. Fort Knox National Co. is an electronic bill payment company specializing in payroll deductions for both military and civilians.

    Beyond their daily work, employees at Fort Knox National Co. in Elizabethtown have harnessed their culinary skills and found a way to raise money for Hardin County’s Angel Tree program.

  • Because it is an ensemble play, “Godspell” offers opportunities for actors to develop special skills, as Central Hardin High School students discovered when they presented the play earlier this month.

    CHHS drama coach Sarah Ryan Dakin said developing improvisational skills and taking risks are among the benefits that specific production provided.

    Well, Joshua is home. He made it back safely from Italy on Monday night. I was so glad to see him he almost turned blue when I hugged him. He had a wonderful time and learned a great deal about history in Italy. He took about 400 pictures of all of the sites that he saw. I know this is only the first of many times he will be away from home, but that didn’t make it any easier. I’m sure glad I have three years to prepare for him to go to college. Maybe he’ll choose Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.
