Today's Features

  • It seems Thanksgiving has come upon me very quickly this year and it probably has something to do with getting a cookbook finished. I have written about alternatives to the usual turkey and pumpkin pie, but today I am going with the traditional family Thanksgiving dinner and some new recipes for pumpkin. Who but Butterball could you call on for a basic roasting turkey recipe? Of course, there is deep fried turkey, but the healthier choice is oven roasted.

  • Sharon Thompson, director of the American Red Cross in Elizabethtown, recently spoke to  Elizabethtown Lions Club members.
    She was introduced to the club by Lion Robert O’Bryant. Thompson spoke to the club about current changes in the Red Cross. There soon will be a youth initiative in addition to the traditional mandated services provided by the Red Cross such as emergency communication of military families, disaster relief and blood banking.

  • Radcliff Woman’s Club members pushed past a little rain to take part in the Radcliff Day Festival Parade on Sept. 24.
    Member Sheila Enyart chauffeured the club’s truck-entry along the parade route, while members Yvonne High, Pat Nuccitelli, Brenda McNary and Becky Brecht waved and threw candy to the crowd.

  • Author Lena Goldman will sign copies of her book “Walking through the Maze; A Children’s Guide for Loss and Grief” Saturday at Everything 4 Kids in Radcliff.

    Goldman, a Corydon, Ind., resident came up with the idea for the book when she was counseling two children whose father had committed suicide. After searching for books on grief for children she found few because most were for adults. She wanted to write a book for children to help them explore their own grief process.

  • Glen Rice and his friends will be back at 7 p.m. Friday at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School for their final concert of the year.

    This is the sixth season for the Glen Rice Family and Friends concert series.

    Rice will perform with his family and many old and new friends for a tribute to the Statler Brothers, Alabama, the Oak Ridge Boys and the Gatlin Brothers.

  • I’m not sure at what point in our nation’s history zombies became cool. They’ve appeared in B horror films for years.

    Maybe we can blame Michael Jackson for it. Jackson and his zombie friends danced their way to music history in “Thriller.”

    It’s more likely the fault of popular films today with zombie themes or television shows such as “The Walking Dead.”

  • Audience reactions to a Tuesday night screening of “J. Edgar” starring Leonardo DiCaprio (“Inception”) were mixed. While most agreed the film was well made, they also thought some of the interviews they had seen about the movie were deceptive.

    That morning DiCaprio appeared on “Good Morning America” and implied that although rumors about Hoover’s private life would be explored, the portrayal in the film would be open enough to let the audience reach its own conclusions about those rumors.

  • Betty Sue French of the Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown was the guest speaker at the Radcliff Woman’s Club meeting on Oct. 10.

  • Vine Grove author Kat Jordan will hold a booksigning near the downtown Elizabethtown eatery that is the setting of her first novel “Let’s Do Lunch.”

    “Let’s Do Lunch,” which is available as an ebook or paperback at www.createspace.com and as an ebook at www.amazon.com, is set in a diner modeled after Old Vault Deli.

    Jordan will be at Moonlight Serenity Body Products at 114 W. Dixie Ave, Suite B, 5-8 p.m. Saturday.

  • Dr. Rafiq U. Rahman, sponsored by Ken Mizoguchi, was inducted into the Elizabethtown Lions Club on Sept. 13 by Past District Governor Tony Bishop.
    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. Lion Rahman could be found among the club’s volunteers who recently gathered at Feeding America to work the “Back Pack Program,” which ensures school children in need have food for the weekend.
