Today's Features

  • Sylvia McCarty, district agent for Modern Woodmen of America presents a matching fund check for $4,643.20 to Lisa Wilson for a spaghetti dinner and auction at Big Clifty Community Center on May 6 to benefit Mary Bradley, who needs a lung transplant.

  • William J. and Shirley Wallace of Elizabethtown will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary on June 16, 2011.
    They were married June 16, 1951, at Walnut Street Baptist Church in Louisville.
    They have two children, Debbie Henderson and Susie Toy, both of Elizabethtown; four grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.

  • So I’m turning 30 in a couple of weeks.  I’m not completely sure how I feel about it.

  • The summer is here and we have already endured some very hot days. Hopefully, we are all eating less, exercising more and staying hydrated by drinking more water.

    Water, the nutrient our body needs the most, also helps prevent dehydration. The effects of dehydration can range from thirst to kidney failure and are usually silent but progressive. Therefore, we need to pay attention to the early signs of water loss because before we know it we can become severely dehydrated.

  • Annoying and possibly dangerous mosquitos and ticks are out in force. To help take back your yard, practice the five Ts, according to Mosquito Squad, an exterminating company specializing in treating for mosquitoes and ticks.

     

    1. Tip. Dump all standing water to eliminate mosquito threats, including that underneath and around downspouts, in plant saucers and dog bowls. Mosquitoes need standing water, and not much of it, to breed.

  • As an attorney practicing domestic and criminal law, Phyllis Lonneman sees many a case that is no laughing matter.

    As Choco-lotte the clown, laughing and smiles come with the territory.

    Lonneman, who graduated from clown college about three years ago, said clowning is her escape from the rigors of court, and it is a rewarding activity for her.

    So occasionally she dons makeup and becomes Choco-lotte the clown.

    “I’m a big chocolate fanatic,” Lonneman said.

    A taste of the Nashville music scene, hotrods and motorcycles are all a part of local band 3GC.

    Wade Perry and Jason Dowell, of Elizabethtown, rode their motorcycles to Nashville in the fall of 2009. They walked down the sidewalk on lower Broadway and heard a band that stood out from the others at Layla’s Bluegrass Inn.

    Dowell said they had to go in and listen. The band was Lane Kristian and the Jakehead Mob.

  • With Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t help but think about my dad.

    They (whoever “they” are) say you’re supposed to keep learning as you get older. That is so true when it comes to learning about my father.

  • For those of you with children of all ages, all of a sudden your children are free from school and now it is time to think of some activities that are not so boring. Of course, they can readily think of other things to fill their time, like watching television, playing video games, anything to keep from playing outdoors in the heat and humidity.

  • Stephen Van Zant might be an attorney practicing law in Elizabethtown, but the Oldham County resident had a story to tell that required him to put on another hat.

    The attorney is now an author, with his young adult novel, “Far From Good,” recently published by WinePress Publishing.
