  • CHHS students dance in Macy's parade

    Local dancers missed their chance to watch the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade at home. They were too busy participating in it.

    Three Central Hardin High School students traveled to New York City last week to dance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The seniors participated through Center Stage Dance Studio, which sends some students every year to be a part of the Spirit of America Dance Team.

  • Live-cut tree sales dwindle

    Area sellers of live and live-cut Christmas trees say they are selling fewer than in the past.

    Opinions differ regarding why that change is occurring.

    John Effinger, owner and manager of Frank Otte Nursery on Ring Road in Elizabethtown, thinks allergies are to blame. His grandchildren’s allergies are why he and his wife had to buy an artificial tree after bringing live-cut trees into their home every year as they raised their own children.

    “I think the environment is too clean today,” he said.

  • 30-year VFW Ladies Auxiliary member cites group effort as key

    Connie Burke has been a member of Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary in Vine Grove for 30 years, and she doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.

    Burke believes in the organization and believes community members have misconceptions about it.

    “They don’t know what we do,” Burke said, “They think it’s a place to come and drink, and that’s not what we’re about.”

  • The Neat Freak: A knife makes a very reliable banana slicer

    I get worn out with all the products marketed to the busy folks in America that claim to save you time. I do believe there is a bit of merit in some of these products’ claims, such as using a tiller versus manipulating your garden soil using man power and a well-built hoe. However, when I see some products advertised I either shake my head or laugh out loud at the frivolity of its very invention.

  • Radcliff sets new alcohol standards

    After a meeting Monday full of debates and discussion surrounding alcohol, the majority of Radcliff City Council was silent Tuesday afternoon as it repealed the city’s old alcohol ordinance and placed a new set of regulations in place.

    The council authorized the new ordinance, 5-1, as the city’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Administrator Ashley Russo now turns her attention to reviewing license applications filing in before they move on to the state.

  • PREP BOWLING: Area teams ready to get rolling (11/30)

    Could spare you the (bad) puns, but that’s not going to happen.

    So as three area schools are bowled over to be able to participate in the newest KHSAA-sanctioned sport, Central Hardin, John Hardin and North Hardin aren’t pinning their hopes on anything outlandish as a state championship, but rather, they’re hoping to strike it rich in the fun and growth departments.

  • Elizabethtown Sports Park begins to book events

    Recent news that the under construction Elizabethtown Sports Park is beginning to get a flow of traffic on its tournament calendar is refreshing.
    After all, one of the reasons to build the much-debated, $28 million multi-sports complex was to bring in out-of-town teams and generate additional revenue within the county for restaurants, hotels and businesses.

  • Town Hall meeting blossoms into robust auction for kids

    When it comes to fast and furious bidding, cakes are among the top choices at Thursday night’s town hall meeting in Vine Grove.

    The annual Christmas for the Kids program, which has been around for about 12 years, benefits children who otherwise may have a gloomy holiday gift season.

    Auctioning cakes, holiday decorations and Christmas trees has been a successful venture over the years. Last year, more than $8,000 was raised through the auction, said Capt. Dale Riggs of the Vine Grove Police Department.
