  • THE NEWS-ENTERPRISE

    In the wake of fire, flood or any disaster, many people can find themselves financially lost.

    “Unfortunately, the consequences of not having your information stored in a safe place prior to a disaster could cost you time and money,” said Leanna Milby, a financial counselor with Apprisen Financial Advocates and Consumer Credit Counseling Service in Elizabethtown.

    There’s too much to think about during a time of crisis, and the following steps can help.

  • I’m featuring three of my favorite cakes today – Italian Wedding Cake (also known as Italian Cream Cake), Fresh Apple Cake and Pumpkin Sheet Cake.

    I remember getting the Italian Wedding Cake recipe from a cookbook published by University of Kentucky alumni some 30 to 35 years ago, and I’ve had the Fresh Apple Cake recipe about that long, too. The Pumpkin Sheet Cake came from Taste of Home magazine probably 20 years ago.

  • Surrounded by yellowed historical documents, 100-year-old diaries and letters from the Civil War era is exactly where Kristi Johnson likes to be.

    She used those documents to create the “Civil War Ghosts and Legends Drama,” which begins at 8 p.m. Friday.

  • A Radcliff author has published “Underground,” a historical novel about small-time thief who becomes a high-society millionaire in Louisville.

    Billy H. Dean, a Radcliff resident and U.S. Army training specialist at Fort Knox, wrote the book published by Xlibris.

    “Underground” tells the tale of Robert O’Brien, a Louisville thief, and his rise from petty crime to the world of wealth. The novel is set in the Louisville area where O’Brien grew up, including the Portland neighborhood.

  • C is the letter of the month and I first thought of carrots and crab apples. The foods that came to my mind were carrot cake and crab apple jelly, but there are many more ways to use the ever popular vegetable, carrot, and the not so well known fruit, crab apple. I hope you will experiment with these new recipes that are not only healthy, but can be delicious as well.

    Carrots are an excellent source of Vitamin A, which helps to prevent night blindness. It is no wonder we think of a bunny eating carrots having excellent eyesight.

  • At the age of 10, Aaron McDowell and Matt Miller decided to form a band.

    The duo split up when Miller moved away.

    Eleven years — and a bit of life experience later — they found themselves reforming a group with another musician, and Elizabethtown rock band If Walls Could Talk was born.

    If Walls Could Talk consists of McDowell, vocalist and guitarist; Miller, bassist; and Patrick Nalley, drummer. Band members hope their music will help listeners deal with their emotions by conveying their own emotions, McDowell said.
