    It really doesn’t make sense, though, because, as my significant other, Rebecca Ricks, is fond of pointing out, I tend to make lists for everything.

  • The Radcliff Woman's Club held its Dec. 12 meeting amidst the decorated trees at Colvin Community Center. After a catered dinner, Kyu Reisch added to the holiday atmosphere by playing  “O Holy Night” on her harmonica.
