  • Vine Grove festival celebrates small-town living

    In its annual homage to small-town living, Vine Grove hosts the Mayberry Days festival Friday and Saturday.

    The event at Vine Grove Optimist Park begins at 5 p.m. Friday with carnival rides – which are new this year – an Across Kentucky Arts and Craft show and food booths, said Donna Broadway, event coordinator for Vine Grove.

    “Our people just love to get out and mingle together,” she said. “It’s an opportunity to get out, eat and chat with old friends.”

  • Kitchen Adventures: Hot, melted-sandwich goodness

    Some days, there’s nothing like eating a good sandwich for dinner.

    At the end of a long work day, most don’t have the energy or appetite for a big meal with all the fixings. On those days, a sandwich with something tasty on the side hits the spot.

    The best sandwiches often are the ooey-gooey, hot, cheesy, melted kind. The perfect grilled cheese can be one of the best-tasting things in the universe. Add a little bacon and you’ve got the makings of something spectacular.

  • Dash of Class: Turn Easter leftovers into hearty dishes

    Usually, Easter leftovers are hard-cooked eggs with names written on them or decorated by children.

    There also might be eggs from egg hunts. Check those out carefully. If there are any cracks where dirt and germs could get into the egg, discard them.

    But for those of you who had baked ham, you might have so much that you get tired of ham sandwiches.

    The recipes I have for you today use leftover ham.

  • PREP BASEBALL: Central Hardin surging after slow start to season (04/22)

    Central Hardin coach Todd Thompson has always described the high school baseball season as a marathon, not a sprint.

    It’s a good thing, because the Bruins wouldn’t have done well in a short-distance race. They started off the season 4-5, which included their first 17th District loss since 2010 and back-to-back losses in the Derby City Classic.
