Today's Features

  • Today you get two really fantastic recipes that I would have to rank in my top five all-time favorite dessert recipes. One is easy and quick to make, and one is really time consuming, but I love them both, partly because they feature macadamia nuts.

  • An unknown virus finds itself spreading throughout the globe with many lives entangling to find its source and cure.

    This basic plotline of “Contagion” might sound like films you’ve seen before but this one is different. It’s not like “Outbreak,” which was an action-adventure piece that disguised itself as medical thriller.

  • Apples, apples, everywhere. September and fall in general is the most popular time for apples. But with them being available from all over the world, we can enjoy them most any month of the year. More than half of all apples grown in the United States for fresh eating come from orchards in Washington state. One apple has five grams of fiber, supplying 20 percent of the daily fiber recommendation. Americans eat approximately 19 pounds of fresh apples annually, compared to about 46 pounds consumed annually by Europeans.

  • As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 was observed over the weekend, many have recounted where they were or how they felt that day and in the time that followed.

    I had recently graduated from Seminary and was about to move home from Louisville. I went to work like any other morning to input data at a library collection agency in Southern Indiana. Some called us the library police.

  • About six months ago while attending a tattoo convention in Louisville, Adrienne Laine found herself offered a photo shoot with the suggestion that it might make the cover of a magazine.

    While some might find such an offer a little suspicious, her boyfriend, Tray Benham, knew it was legit. The photographer was an acquaintance.

    “I’ve known him for a while,” Benham said, explaining the man, Bill Tinney, took photos that appeared in magazines such as Easy Rider and Tattoo.

  • Musician Mike Jones spent his weekend celebrating what would have been bluegrass legend Bill Monroe’s 100th birthday.

    He wrote a song called “The Ghost of Mr. Bill,” which won the Come Home to the Bluegrass songwriting contest. As the winner, he performed the song at the birthday celebration in Rosine, Monroe’s birthplace.

    He performed with Blue River, a band that includes banjo player Billy Edlin, of Elizabethtown.

    It was an honor for Jones.

  • Fall begins the next season of youth sports and the spotlight on parent’s behavior. It is easy to focus on parents who are out of control, yelling at referees and disrespecting their child’s coaches. But this article is going to focus on one parent’s very ethical behavior.

  • Hardin County Health Center, both Elizabethtown and Radcliff locations, will begin using a new upgraded web-based system to issue benefits for the Women, Infants and Children Program beginning Oct. 31. The web-based system uses information gathered at WIC participant visits to issue Electronic Benefits Transfer cards to be used for WIC purchases. Offering the eWIC cards gives families needed access to benefits without the delay and stigma of paper checks, which most counties in Kentucky still use.

  • The high value of gold has many consumers considering trading their jewelry for quick cash, but sellers shouldn’t make the transaction before doing some homework.

  • As a fifth grade math teacher at Morningside Elementary School in Elizabethtown, Karla Buckingham is used to going to work at a school filled with children.

    As a champion bass fisher, she searches for schools of fish.
    “There’s something about catching that school of fish,” the teacher said.

    Buckingham and her husband, Todd, are currently top-ranked in Kentucky Division: KY-14 Co-Ed Twin Spring Lakes Division of the U.S.A. Bassin Tournament Trail.
