  • Louisville thief focus of Radcliff writer's historical novel

    A Radcliff author has published “Underground,” a historical novel about small-time thief who becomes a high-society millionaire in Louisville.

    Billy H. Dean, a Radcliff resident and U.S. Army training specialist at Fort Knox, wrote the book published by Xlibris.

    “Underground” tells the tale of Robert O’Brien, a Louisville thief, and his rise from petty crime to the world of wealth. The novel is set in the Louisville area where O’Brien grew up, including the Portland neighborhood.

  • 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.

  • After more than decade of foundation, If Walls Could Talk finds voice

    At the age of 10, Aaron McDowell and Matt Miller decided to form a band.

    The duo split up when Miller moved away.

    Eleven years — and a bit of life experience later — they found themselves reforming a group with another musician, and Elizabethtown rock band If Walls Could Talk was born.

    If Walls Could Talk consists of McDowell, vocalist and guitarist; Miller, bassist; and Patrick Nalley, drummer. Band members hope their music will help listeners deal with their emotions by conveying their own emotions, McDowell said.

  • Just me and my girl ... and my 'Goyle and a couple of Pomeranians

    Maybe I’m getting a bit carried away, but not as carried away as Doyle, my large lawn gargoyle that arrived at my house sometime last year as a gift from my brother-in-law.

    But I thought Doyle needed to make a trip to visit the guy who found him in the first place.

    Yeah, I took Doyle on a trip to South Carolina.

    I can’t really explain it, but Doyle — for lack of a better description — has taken on a life of his own. (Yeah, I know: that sounds a little creepy, but I’m good with that.)

    From October to June, Sturgill sent sexually charged messages via Facebook and Yahoo to the child, according to the warrant. Sturgill reportedly admitted to police that he sent the messages.

  • ECTC hosts Project Lead the Way camp

    Popsicle sticks and summer camps go hand-in-hand, but at one local camp, the sticks served more as a means of protection than art materials.

    Students from the Gifted and Talented Program at T.K. Stone Middle School participated in Gateway Academy for Project Lead the Way at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

  • 2011 ALL-AREA GIRLS' TRACK AND FIELD: Gabhart wins top honor for third straight year (07/14)

    Jessica Gabhart hasn’t forgotten that moment at State, the moment she saw her chance at capturing another state title end with a crash.

    In the lead entering the homestretch of the 300-meter hurdles at the Class 2-A state meet last month at the University of Louisville, Gabhart clipped the final hurdle and fell – the first time, she said, that’s ever happened.

    Caleb Tarrence struck out five in the complete-game win and staked his team to an early lead with a two-run home run in the top of the first inning Wednesday.

    Tarrence allowed just two hits and one walk.
