    Seth Breitner said he will embrace the hard work ahead of him as he takes over operations of the Elizabethtown Sports Park this fall.

    “I know there’s going to be a lot of challenges because it’s on the ground floor, but I’m eager to get started,” Breitner said.

    Mayor Tim Walker said Breitner’s appointment was culled from a list of more than 75 resumes.

    I’m featuring three of my favorite cakes today – Italian Wedding Cake (also known as Italian Cream Cake), Fresh Apple Cake and Pumpkin Sheet Cake.

    I remember getting the Italian Wedding Cake recipe from a cookbook published by University of Kentucky alumni some 30 to 35 years ago, and I’ve had the Fresh Apple Cake recipe about that long, too. The Pumpkin Sheet Cake came from Taste of Home magazine probably 20 years ago.

  • Dash of Class: Cooking with the letter C — Carrots and crab apples

    C is the letter of the month and I first thought of carrots and crab apples. The foods that came to my mind were carrot cake and crab apple jelly, but there are many more ways to use the ever popular vegetable, carrot, and the not so well known fruit, crab apple. I hope you will experiment with these new recipes that are not only healthy, but can be delicious as well.

    Carrots are an excellent source of Vitamin A, which helps to prevent night blindness. It is no wonder we think of a bunny eating carrots having excellent eyesight.
