  •  How do you tire out a Pomeranian that is essentially a ball of energy wrapped in fur?

    My girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I have had limited success answering that question. But we’ve discovered one way this past weekend.

    That was when we made an annual camping and fishing trip to Land Between the Lakes in western Kentucky. We’ve been going there for years, sometimes twice in one year.

    Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence and action throughout, and a mild drug reference

    Release date: May 4

    What do you get when you combine a billionaire genius, an all-American soldier, a scientist, an alien, a super assassin and an expert marksman? You get “Marvel’s The Avengers.”

  • Year-round coverage, extensive work schedules and special training are just part of what it means to be on the yearbook staff at North Hardin High School.

    “We are Yerds — yearbook nerds — and we're not embarrassed by it,” yearbook adviser Gina Clear said.

    Until the end of the first week in April, the staff pushed to meet deadlines for The Trojan which commemorates 50 years of North Hardin High School. The theme is “Summed Up.”

  • The Kentucky Federation of Woman’s Clubs’ 4th District past governor Barbara Wright pinned Diane Willis, governor, at the state convention. Willis is a member of the Woman’s Club of Elizabethtown.

  • Woody Will has spent his life rescuing others, but recently he had to take measures to rescue himself from life in a wheel chair.

    Through weight loss, training and some new knees, Will was able to get out of his wheel chair and back to the life he lived before.

    His life began in Illinois. While serving in the Air Force, he met Denver Woodring and his family. Will began dating Woodring’s daughter, Linda, while stationed in Spain.

  • Ladonna Eastman’s love of arts and crafts is rooted in her “home base,” her grandmother’s home in Radcliff.

    Born into a military family, Eastman began her life on Fort Knox. Although her family moved around a lot, Radcliff always was home.

    Eastman, who now lives in Radcliff, organizes the Every Woman’s Arts and Crafts Festival held every May.

  • Derby weekend is no mere sporting occasion — although the action on the track is thrilling — it’s one of the great social gatherings of the year and the people who attend dress accordingly in all their finery, especially hats.

    Headwear company Dorfman Pacific has been selling hats in the Kentucky Derby Museum store at Churchill Downs for years. It’s become a year-round business there, as more visitors seek hats for special occasions or as souvenirs.

  • I absolutely loved the three years I lived in Hawaii and try to incorporate what I enjoyed in Hawaii into mainland America. My daughter even has a Hawaiian middle name because I was so taken with the culture and the meaning behind its words.
