    Well, it is that time of the year, my friends.

    The hustle and bustle of Christmas — for me, the Christmas season — has become so commercial and gives the constant look of wanting and not giving.

  • Potted Few Garden Club members Linda Novak, Renate Gosser, Lahoma Baymor and Marilyn Ardisson recently presented Donna Betson, second from left, with a donation to the Wreaths Across America initiative. Donations to the local chapter of the organization will support the purchase of 2,500 live wreaths to decorate the graves at 10 a.m. Dec. 15 at Kentucky Veterans Cemetery-Central in Radcliff. For information, call Donna Betson, 877-7066.

  • Martha Mengel from The Potted Few Garden Club recently placed a Christmas flower design in the Fort Knox Barr Library for all to enjoy. Each month, members of the club place a flower design in a public venue for the enjoyment of all who support and frequent the establishment. The Potted Few Garden Club will have its annual Christmas party on Dec. 15, at the home of Club President Anneliese Knoll. The club will then take a meeting hiatus until the March 2013 meeting. To join the club, call Marilyn Ardisson, 307-8670.

  • The fifth annual Radcliff Woman’s Club Taste of Radcliff on Dec. 3 at Colvin Community Center was a success with more than 250 people attending to sample the food offerd by more than 30 vendors.

    Attendees were greeted by students from the culinary class of North Hardin High School, who helped anyone needing assistance.

    Attendees were entertained by the singing of the Heartland Fillies, who went into one festive song after another.

  • Bumbles bounce.

    If you recognize, and even smile at, that phrase, welcome. You probably are one of us.

    Yeah, you know who we are: members of that group of individuals who look for those Rankin/ Bass Christmas specials each year. We seek not only the well-known Rankin-Bass Christmas specials — like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” — but we also might enjoy the occasional show that wasn’t as well-known, such as “The Year Without a Santa Claus.”

  • Auditions for the upcoming Hardin County Playhouse production of “Sordid Lives” are at 6:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at Plum Alley Theater in the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown.

    The adults-only play needs to fill roles for five men and six women, all 30 to 50 years old, and one man in his mid-20s. The comedy contains strong language/situations and requires deep southern accents.

    Those auditioning will read from a script with other actors. Advance preparation is not required.

    Rehearsals begin in 2013.

  • The Rev. Paul Horn began his service as pastor at Faith Lutheran Church in Radcliff in July 2004, but his congregation was a bit different from what he was prepared for.

    “Over 90 percent of our church is military, whether active duty or retired,” he said.

    Providing military ministry requires special consideration, Horn said.

    It now is December and I am ready for some white stuff. I know many of you are frowning at this but wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a white Christmas this year? Bring on the snow.

    Can you believe the gorgeous weather we have been having here in December? It has been great, but will come to an end, I feel much too soon for my pleasure.

    CHURCH NEWS. December is a busy month at College Heights United Methodist Church.

    Monday evening, the College Heights dart ball team defeated the Summit United Methodist team two games to one there. Monday, the team will play the Vine Grove United Methodist team there, at 7 p.m.
