    Kids ask the darnest questions. While a child’s questions often test an adult’s knowledge or skill level, and sometimes can push their patience, their questions have value and must be acknowledged.

    Vendors at the Elizabethtown Junior Women’s Club’s Holiday Marketplace over the weekend said the best part of participating in the craft fair was meeting people and socializing.

    The children had beautiful days for their school vacation Monday and Tuesday. Was also had a beautiful day for the election, so hope you did your political duty and voted for the candidate of your choice. If we don’t vote we have no right to complain about things done, which we wish had been done differently. We voted and someone said they had about a 27 percent turnout at the St. John precinct at the Nolin RECC building where we vote.
