  • Andre Beaugrand’s life reads like novel.

    At age 90, he looked back on his life and said, “It’s been a good one.”

    “A lot of things happened,” he said. “It’s almost one century.”

    He began his life in France. His mother was a part of a Brie cheese making tradition of more than 360 years.

    At age 19, Beaugrand fought Germans in the French underground during World War II. He and his brother snuck out of the house to join the underground and one of their friends was killed that night.

  • I think it’s something about the light. The bright white sunlight has somehow lost some of its radiance, coloring the day with a dimmer spectrum.

    Or maybe it’s the cool, crisp air in the morning. Or the leaves just beginning to show their true colors, sloughing off the green they’ve been wearing all summer.

  • Quilter Hannah Myers, 30, has found a way to turn a craft she enjoys into a profession she loves.

    She’s made about 40 quilts for herself but has stitched together thousands for others. Quilters in the area bring her the top layer of the quilt and she stitches it together for them with her long arm quilting machine.

    Her passion for quilting came from her mother and grandmother. Myers began with sewing clothes but didn’t like it very much. She’s tall and the patterns for clothes weren’t always made for tall people.

  • Members of the Stitcher’s Quilt Guild are finishing up quilts to be displayed at this year’s Heartland of Kentucky Quilt Show Friday and Saturday at Pritchard Community Center. There will be nearly 300 quilts on display, vendors, door prizes, demonstrations and food available. Admission is $5. Pictured are Doneta Faulkner-Elmore with an antique dresden plate quilt and Debbie Owens with a log cabin quilt.

  • Cub Scout Pack 24 of Elizabethtown recently held its annual Rain Gutter Regatta, the first event for the 2012-13 school year. Doubling in size from last year, Pack 24 had more than 30 scouts participate in the boat races. Pictured are two Tiger Cubs facing off in one of the heats. To join, email pack24etown@gmail.com.

  • More than 350 people attended the Flaherty High School reunion Sept. 8 in the newly remodeled and air-conditioned gym. 

  • The Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown met Sept. 7 at the Brown-Pusey House. President Betty Sue French presided over the meeting. A moment of silence was held for the passing of two former presidents of the club, Ester Fuqua and Mrs. A.L. Perry,  over the summer and the recent death of  active member Betty Hilliard. Nora Sweat gave a devotional on fall leaves and their colors and how the characteristics of the colors related to being a good Christian individual.

  • President Pat Nuccitelli opened the Aug. 13 meeting of the Radcliff Woman’s Club by welcoming the six guests present and asked them to join them in the evening of camaraderie with club members. The positive air of friendship was further extended by Yovnne High who presented the invocation.

    Member Mary Agnes Sears beamed with pride and joy when corresponding secretary Deoris Browder read a thank-you from Sear’s granddaughter, Teresa Maire Sears, a club scholarship recipient.
