  • For a single person, Valentine’s Day is about as fun as getting your teeth pulled.

    Even though it’s kind of a non-holiday, it’s treated like the most romantic day of the year. Insert gagging noises here.

    But my point isn’t to berate or belittle Valentine’s Day; it’s to let all the single ladies out there know you’re not alone.

    The trap many women fall into, especially if they are feeling lonely on a day like Valentine’s Day, is they go out looking for someone rather than the one.

  • It’s Valentine’s Day and as far as movies are concerned chick flicks rule the day.

    There’s no shortage of Valentine’s movie marathon material. I prefer a good, old-fashioned romantic comedy rather than a dramatic tear jerker. Here are some suggestions, starting with a few classics.

  • Chapter 1050 of The Elizabethtown National Active and Retired Federal Employees met for the monthly business meeting and quarterly potluck luncheon Feb. 4 at Nolin RECC in Elizabethtown.

    Chapter president Mary Tom Haun called the meeting to order, Ruth Dixon led the prayer and members cited the Pledge of Allegiance. Haun welcomed new members and invited the group to enjoy the luncheon.

  • On behalf of Helping Hand of Hope, I would like to thank The News-Enterprise for covering the event of Jan. 29, where we received a donation of $5,000 from AT&T. We appreciate your help in spreading the word about what we do and how the community can help in supporting our services.


    The January monthly meeting of the Northern Hardin County Democratic Woman’s Club was held at Colvin Community Center in Radcliff.

    Mike Weaver was the featured speaker for the meeting. He updated the club on bills under consideration at the current Kentucky Legislative sessions and how we might influence actions on each. Weaver’s speech on House Bill 70 gave the club insights on how to influence legislation. HB 70 is the NHCDWC special legislative project.

  • Rolling Thunder Inc. Kentucky Chapter Four members met Jan. 6 for the monthly membership meeting.

    Mike Hill was appointed the chapter’s new vice president. A certificate for his service in Vietnam was presented to Jim Bargoil. Patches were awarded to Jim Bargoil, Tim Bowman and Sally Johns. New member Doug Matthews was welcomed into the chapter.

  • The Radcliff Woman’s Club catered a breakfast hosted by the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce and the North Hardin Advisory Council on Jan. 24 at the Colvin Community Center.

    The breakfast , consisting of ham, fresh fruit, scrambled egg muffins, French toast casserole, orange juice and coffee, was prepared by Barbara Proffitt, Emma Day and Maria Batistoni. It was served to the 70 chamber members who attended the breakfast gathering.

  • The German American Edelweiss Club will celebrate its 40th anniversary at noon Feb. 19 at Prichard Chapel at Fort Knox.

    The club was formed in 1973 as a way for German American women in the area to socialize and preserve the tradition, language and heritage of Germany.  Promoting good fellowship amongst members through a variety of meetings and social activities and sharing and celebrating German and American customs and cultures.

  • As Black History Month gets under way, I can only think of what my foremothers and fathers thought as they were being transferred to this country in shackles and chains, being tossed about by the high seas, leaving a homeland, some as kings and queens, to a life of leather whips, dogs and being belittled on every hand.

    I wonder what they thought about as they were paraded onto the slavery block, and their man and womanhood was exposed to the highest bidder, treated no better than horses and cows at a livestock auction.

  • Brenda Tucker believes in education.

    Whether as part of her career as an educator that has spanned some three decades or as one of the caretakers of the Emma Reno Connor Black History Gallery in Elizabethtown, knowledge is important to Tucker.

    For about 30 years, the Radcliff resident has been in the education field, but she doesn’t call her profession a job because she enjoys it so much.
