    Local officials for years have touted the economic impact of the Fort Knox realignment. Recent government data is backing them up — big time.

    The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics this week released figures that show the Elizabethtown metro area increased nonfarm employment by the fifth highest percentage in the nation from October 2009 to this past October.

    That comes on the heels of an August report that said the area ranked fourth in the country for growth in total annual income at 5.2 percent.

  • Dash of Class: Close to Christmas

    By NORA SWEAT

    Just a little over two weeks until Christmas Day, and I dare say many of you are starting to make goodies and putting them in tins for the holidays.

    Just last week I was at two holiday functions. One was a Christmas luncheon and the other a Christmas tea. Just this past Tuesday, I attended another Christmas luncheon with Cecilia Homemakers.

    When her son was home from college one weekend they sat down for a friendly game of cards. As a joke, her son put Vader up as a bid during one hand. She won decidedly; in return Vader was hers for keeps.

    It’s time to dust off those Christmas movies — or flip to a cable channel playing them 24/7 — and get into the holiday spirit.
    Everyone tends to have a favorite this time of year. Here are a few of my suggestions.
    For the kids you can’t beat the classics.
    “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” (1964), “Frosty the Snowman” (1969) and “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” (1970) can be caught on television this time of year.

    Barbershop harmony is the group’s specialty and it has given 200 performances throughout Central Kentucky, including being featured in the Heartland Festival and other community events.
