Annie Varnadore sat in a motorized wheelchair at a sewing machine in the back room of her Radcliff clothing store, stitching material onto the hem of a denim skirt.
The work was not so much about adding a decorative touch as it is about adding length.
Varnadore, 47, who lives in Vine Grove, specializes in creating modest clothing for women. Earlier this year, Varnadore opened her store, Titus 2 Modest Woman’s Apparel, where she sells clothing she makes as well as some from manufacturers.
For Melanie Parker, loss is gain. Training for the upcoming Color Run 5K in Elizabethtown, Parker has lost 50 pounds and gained energy and confidence.
Her first experience with The Color Run was in October 2012. She went with some friends to a run in New Orleans. She met a lot of people from all over the country among the 13,000 involved. There were young and old, women running with babies and co-workers running together.
“I thought, ‘What a fabulous thing to bring to E’town’,” she said.

Leaders are found in the most unusual places and there are many examples to follow.
In life, when you really think about it, we are writing our own plays. We are the writers, the leaders of our lives.
If you step back for a moment and think about your life, what would your play be like? Would it be a best seller? Would it end happily? Would you change the world? As you’re writing the play, you have a choice to hire the actors and actresses. It’s your play. So, if there is someone you don’t want to play a part, don’t give them a part.
At 71 years old, Trish Crandall’s volunteer efforts include building houses.
“I can still swing a hammer,” the Elizabethtown resident said.
Crandall was the recipient of a house from Hardin County Habitat for Humanity, for which she was required to put in a minimum number of work hours. But after she fulfilled her obligations, she didn’t stop volunteering.
