  • Love of animals motivates ‘pack leader’

    Debbie Howe is the leader of the pack, but unlike the song of the same name, her title has nothing to do with motorcycles.

    As kennel pack leader at Sam Russell’s Pet Provisions in Elizabethtown — where she has worked for the past two years — Howe provides obedience training for dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds. Her experience working with animals, though, spans more than two decades and has gained a following.

  • All I want for Christmas is my nip and tuck

    Back in 1944, while teaching music in public school, Donald Gardner asked his second-grade class what they wanted for Christmas. Noticing how almost all his students answered him with a lisp because they had at least one front tooth missing, Gardner sat down and wrote the song, “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth.”

    Unfortunately, at least for many youth, it takes much more than two new front teeth to fit into the norm physically; it takes a nip here and a tuck there.

  • A long time ago in a galaxy far far away ... Aaron Taylor fell in love with sci-fi collectibles

    At 3 years old, Aaron Taylor was hooked. He went to the theater to see “Star Wars.”

    “That was it, ‘Star Wars,’ at 3 years old, changed me,” he said.

  • AUSA president strives to give back to community

    Making sure the military is represented in Washington, D.C., is not a task Gene Gudenkauf takes lightly.

    Neither is community spirit.

    Gudenkauf, who has been a member of the Association of the United States Army since the mid-1980s, is the current president of the Fort Knox chapter of AUSA.

    On the board of the Community Leadership Program and a three-time member of the Radcliff Chamber of Commerce, Gudenkauf also finds time to get involved in civic activities.

  • Art of Performance: Focus under pressure leads to performance under pressure

    Occasionally a new head coach arrives on the scene and helps players focus on the right things at the right time.

    James Franklin became the head football coach at Vanderbilt University for the 2011 season. He took over a program that had won a total of four games in the last two seasons. Vanderbilt has never been known as a powerhouse in football even though they play in the Southeastern Conference, arguably the toughest football conference in the United States.

  • Vine Grove shelter's party encourages pet adoptions

    Some Vine Grove residents celebrated Christmas early Sunday by knocking against visitors’ legs and collapsing into their laps.

    The 10 dogs, three goats, donkey and estimated 140 cats at the Animal Refuge Center were the guests of honor at the shelter’s annual Christmas party for the animals.

    The party has been a tradition for the shelter on Basham Trail since the mid-1990s in an effort to further the mission there and offer a festive occasion for the animals.

  • PREP BOWLING: North Hardin outrolls Central Hardin for 11th place at St. X tournament (12/12)

    LOUISVILLE A pair of first-year boys’ high school bowling programs, North Hardin and Central Hardin, got a rude awakening Saturday to tournament play.

    The Trojans and Bruins traveled to Executive Strike & Spare – site of the inaugural KHSAA-sanctioned state bowling tournament in March – to compete in the 12-team Pins Down Invitational hosted by St. Xavier.

  • BASEBALL: Major Leaguers Adcock, Delabar talk about Velocity, meet with fans (12/12)

    Kelsey McGuffin is a standout softball fielder and not a baseball pitcher.

    So while she might have seemed out of place Sunday afternoon during a Velocity informational seminar at The Players’ Dugout in Elizabethtown, the Central Hardin High School freshman didn’t see it that way.
