  • Kentucky has more than basketball to brag about this week. Two Kentucky natives are starring in the greatly anticipated film “The Hunger Games.”

    Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) is from Louisville and Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) is from Union.

    Teenage fans have talked nonstop about the film adaptation of the Suzanne Collins books, but I wonder if they grasp the philosophical applications or the sheer horror of what’s taking place.

  • I volunteer with teens at Severns Valley Baptist Church and they have an affinity for cake pops and cake balls. The last time I brought the treats to an event, they were gone in five minutes.

    Another volunteer in the student area once called cake pops “magic on a stick.”

    The small, round, candy coated cakes are easy to make in a variety of ways and for a variety of occasions. They can be a cute and decorative treat you can give as gifts or have as a dessert for Easter dinner.

  • Members of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc participated in the annual Bowl for Kids Sake sake fundraiser. Pictured are Col. Eric Hoggard, Willie Little, Dr. James Baker, Major Jason Luckey, Colonel Louis Wingate, Hardin County NAACP President Marcus Ray and Radcliff City Councilman Stan Holmes.

  • A recent guest at the Radcliff Rotary Club meeting was Dr. Ron Stephens, associate dean, Western Kentucky University. Dr Stephens, an Elizabethtown AM Club member, gave the club a review of the WKU program at the Elizabethtown Community and Technical College (ECTC) campus. A student can enroll at ECTC and complete a bachelor’s degree through WKU right here in the county. The Radcliff Rotary meets at noonThursdays at Colvin Community Center in Radcliff.

  • Sarah Anthony has a sweet business operation. Literally.

    Anthony, of Hodgenville, owns Sugar Fashion Cakes, which offers cakes and cupcakes to customers with an emphasis on custom orders. Cakes can be sculpted in shapes ranging from a doctor’s medical bag to the iconic dogs playing poker scene.

  • Relax, I tell myself.

    Don’t nitpick, I tell myself.

    But I have such a difficult time letting my 3-year-old boy just be a 3-year-old boy.

    He’s silly and rambunctious and I love all of that about him. But as his mother, it’s my job to rein him in when I can. To keep him from jumping off the arm of the sofa or to keep him from hanging the upper half of his body out the open window of his upstairs bedroom.

  • New Horizon Baptist Fellowship would like to thank all the churches from Hardin and LaRue county, businesses and individuals who helped with sending a semi-truck load of much needed supplies to West Liberty on March 24.

  • Amy Aldenderfer, a horticulturist with the Hardin County Extension Service, was the guest speaker at the March 12 meeting of the Radcliff Woman’s Club. Aldenderfer carried on an interactive program, taking questions from the floor. She spoke of the many free services the agency provides, such as soil testing, and recommended fall as the best time to plant grass seed and to fertilize the lawn.

  • Members and friends of First Presbyterian Church recently welcomed Warm Blessings volunteers to a weekly Lenten soup supper to recognize the program’s work to serve individuals and families who are at risk in the community.  The Lenten suppers offer a time to emphasize the relationship between God, and human beings, and are an occasion to give thanks for God’s blessings by recognizing how God is working in our community to care for the most vulnerable.

  • The Fort Knox Potted Few Garden Club recently met in the Radcliff home of Lahoma Baymor with club member Bonnie Lush as co-host. After members enjoyed the opening social and several brunch treats, club president Anneliese Knoll opened the business meeting.
