  • A Christmas in July workshop weekend was hosted by Sew Much More Quilt Shop in Clarkson to Stitchers Quilt Guild members. Members worked on two different projects, a small Christmas wallhanging and a Christmas tree skirt.

  • Rotary District Governor Don Dykman was the guest speaker at the Hardin County AM Rotary Club meeting  July 27. Pictured from left, District Governor Don Dykman, Hardin County AM Rotary Club President Cindy Gipson and Assistant District Governor Michael Owsley.

  • Music provided Sipan Hassan a path from Zawita, Iraq, to Radcliff. Now, the former Kurdish interpreter hopes music continues to pave that road all the way to the west coast.

    “My big goal is how to get into the music industry and Hollywood,” the 36-year-old said.

    Before the capture of Saddam Hussein, Hassan was living in Iraq and had composed a rap song called “Join the Game,” which urged the capture of the deposed Iraqui dictator. U.S. troops liked the song.

  • It is July 31 and the end of the month means it is time for shared recipes and requested ones, too.

    One recipe shared with me is Key Lime Pie, a real favorite to Southerners. This particular version was shared by Sarah Springer and can be found in the Glendale Homemakers Cookbook. This was a favorite of many in the Glendale area thanks to the late Susie Walker.

  • Cooking is a family tradition. There are many great cooks in my family, starting with my grandmothers.

    These two ladies are not only great cooks but also amazing women.

    One was raised on a farm with five brothers and became a mother of three, grandmother to six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

    The other grew up in West Virginia, worked as a cafeteria cook in area schools and became a mother to two daughters and grandmother to four grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.

  • Mike Marvin doesn’t just like oldies music. He knows everything there is to know about it.

    A disc jockey for WAKY 103.5, he’s earned the nickname “Mr. Oldies.”

    He spins oldies in the evening time slot at WAKY and also is the go-to guy for any question about rock ‘n’ roll history.

    Station general manager Rene Bell never has worked with anyone with a “vast warehouse of knowledge” like Marvin’s, she said.

  • The 2012 Summer Olympics are in session, and the pressures have begun. This competition brings out the best and worst of world class athletes.

    You might remember one of the devastating images of the 2008 Games. The event was the women’s 100-meter hurdles. U.S. hurdler Lolo Jones had a commanding lead but clipped the ninth hurdle, stumbled, fell on the track and finished seventh. It was a devastating turn of events. Her Olympic dreams came crashing down. Later, Jones would say she was thinking too much about technique as the race drew to a close.

  • For the life of transition that Claire Seifert has lived, music has been a common thread running through every new place she’s called home.

    The 13-year-old, who started piano lessons as a first-grader, has been taking classes from Patti Benningfield for about nine months. In a military family, finding a piano teacher is just one of many things to do after settling into a new place. Benningfield is Claire's seventh piano teacher.

  • Mr. and Mrs. Gregory Gibson of Glendale announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Keri Gibson, to Aaron Howard, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ken Howard of Elizabethtown.

    The bride-to-be is a 2008 graduate of Central Hardin High School and a 2012 graduate of Western Kentucky University with a Bachelor of Science in exercise science. She attends Bellarmine University pursuing a Doctorate of Physical Therapy.

  • Rogerlyn Biggs of Elizabethtown and Frank William Shaw of Spring Hill, Fla., were married May 19, 2012, in a patio wedding at the home of the bride by Pastor Brenda Nelson.

    The bride is the daughter of Louise Fred of Elizabethtown and the late Roger Fred.

    The groom is the son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Harold Shaw.

    The bride was given in marriage by her grandson, Blake Thorn of Berea.
