  • Man. Three-year-olds. Three. Year. Olds.

    I’m guessing that anyone who has had or currently has a 3-year-old knows what I’m referring to and I can close up shop without elaborating.

    But for those of you who do not understand, let me explain.

  • The Rev. B.T. Bishop made a stop in Elizabethtown on his way from Louisville to Birmingham, Ala.

    That was 45 years ago.

    “I wasn’t planning on staying,” Bishop said.

    He had his own plans, but his calling to dedicate himself to serving the Elizabethtown community was stronger. And over the years, he witnessed that community and its opportunities grow.

  •  

    When cowbells ring over the stadium at a Central Hardin High School football game, it means Pat Cromartie, a.k.a. No. 5’s mom, is in attendance.

    She sits at the 50-yard line to watch all the plays with other parents. And when the team does well, their section of the stands becomes a sea of high-fives and, of course, more cowbell.

  • Brian Vinson is a freelance jazz bassist in New York, but his roots are in Hardin County.

    Vinson lived in White Mills until he was about 7 and then moved closer to Elizabethtown.

    “My grandparents had farms in Upton, and I spent a lot of time there when I was young,” he said. “Then I moved to Louisville to go to college after graduating high school.”

    Music was a big part of his young life.

  • A night of murder, mystery and Mardi Gras is staged Saturday at the Brown-Pusey House.

    Costumed murder mystery “As the Beads Drop” will be the highlight of the evening as volunteer actors will portray the mystery and audience members submit guesses about which one is the killer.

  • PLACE. Cadet Harrison Joseph Place, son of Col. and Mrs. Ronald Place of Fort Stewart, Ga., recently completed Cadet Basic Training at the U.S. Military Academy.

    Place entered West Point on June 27 and has successfully completed six weeks of CBT.

    Place began classes Aug. 15. The West Point curriculum offers 45 majors balancing physical sciences and engineering with humanities and social sciences leading to a Bachelor of Science degree.

  • Brad Pitt (“Tree of Life”) has received high praise from many critics for his performance in “Moneyball,” but I found that it is the people around him with strong performances and that Pitt’s is lacking.

    The film is based on the true story of how the Oakland As Major League Baseball team, and its general manger, Billy Beane, played by Pitt, created a history-making season with a fourth of the operating budget of some of the big league teams. I’m sorry to tell you kids, a lot of it had to do with math.

  • In the start of fall has you ready to put your slow cooker to good use, try these two really good slow cooker chicken recipes.

    The Easy Cheesy Slow Cooker Chicken recipe is from Melissa Hartmann of Sonora. She says she usually adds an additional can of condensed cheddar cheese soup to the mix. She also makes sure when she serves this she has fresh cauliflower or broccoli as side dishes so she can use the wonderful cheese sauce over the steamed vegetables. The recipe suggests serving the chicken over rice or noodles, but Melissa has always used noodles.
