  • It is the first Tuesday of the month and time to honor “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks.”
    Since I began this series, I have honored many women, men, couples and even an outstanding cook still in high school. But as I was getting nominations and searching for someone worthy of being honored, I forgot to look in one very obvious place, my own home. My husband, Mike, is an excellent cook and I am not talking about a grilled main course that he did all by himself. I am talking about full course meals.

  • Local residents had the unique opportunity to hear the Kentucky Baptist Men’s and Women’s Chorales and Wind Orchestra in a combined concert of more than 75 voices on Sept. 24 at First Baptist Church, Hodgenville.
