  • My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Family favorites from Sheryl Warren


    Sheryl Warren and her family live on a farm in Hart County. Sheryl is a stay-at-home mom with eight children, and she loves to cook and bake — a good thing with a family of that size.

    Sheryl says these recipes for Meatball Soup and Popovers are favorites of her family, and she usually serves them together.

    These are really good recipes, and they’re simple. I don’t think I had ever made popovers before, but these are great.

  • Top stories of 2010

    When it comes to impactful stories in Hardin County, nothing quite matches the intriguing storylines of crime and politics. And the ongoing changes at Fort Knox are always of local interest.

    1. Buggeland killings.

    What started as a routine September day along Shepherdsville Road was far from that.

    Two retired doctors, Margaret Buggeland and Terje R. Buggeland, were found bludgeoned in their home Sept. 21.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK: Despite shooting, Jones gets passing grade (01/02)

    LOUISVILLE Terrence Jones is many things, but one thing the Kentucky freshman isn’t is consistent from the field.

    The 6-foot-8, 244-pound forward has shot better than 50 percent from the field in consecutive games just once. So even though he made 9-of-12 shots Tuesday against Coppin State, Jones was probably due to have a shooting clunker Friday in the Wildcats’ 78-63 win at rival Louisville.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Injuries taking a toll on deep Cards (01/02)

    LOUISVILLE The Louisville Cardinals have one of the deepest teams in the Big East Conference, but injuries are starting to leave them short on bodies and with short bodies.

    After 6-foot-8 sophomore forward Rakeem Buckles suffered a spiral fracture Thursday, coach Rick Pitino went with a noticeably smaller lineup in Friday’s 78-63 loss to the visiting Kentucky Wildcats. The Cardinals started only one player taller than 6-4, while Kentucky coach John Calipari countered with a lineup featuring only one starter shorter than 6-4.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL OPINION: That was fun, but it's time to move on (01/02)

    LOUISVILLE Sometimes it’s hard to trust the words coming out of Rick Pitino’s mouth.

    OK, OK, I’ll admit sometimes is probably the wrong word. Probably should have just deleted sometimes and started with it’s.

    However, it didn’t take Pitino long after he reached the podium Friday afternoon to speak the truth after his Cardinals were walloped by John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats, 78-63.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL: Meade beats Edmonson (01/02)

    Freshman guard Raley Johnson hit 4-of-7 3-pointers en route to a team-high 16 points and eighth-grade forward Morgan Turner added 13 points and team highs in rebounds (seven) and assists as the visiting Meade County Lady Waves topped the Edmonson County Lady Cats, 62-57 in a battle of 3rd Region girls’ basketball rivals Friday.

    Senior forward Kristin Benton added 13 points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals for the Lady Waves (2-9).


  • Central Kentucky Wheelmen: Easy riders

    A broken neck couldn't force Dan McIntosh to surrender his passion — he just modified his approach.
    The cyclist took to the pavement Saturday as part of Central Kentucky Wheelmen’s New Year’s Day Ride, a 10-mile route that forms a loop around Elizabethtown and launched from Bullmoose Brothers Bicycle Shop on Helm Street.

  • Longtime magistrate dies

    Lenn Lee Nelson was never short on opinions and those who knew him said he worked hard to better Vine Grove and Hardin County as a whole during his life.

    Nelson, a longtime dairy farmer and Hardin County magistrate, died Friday morning. He was 82.

    Nelson’s son, Byron, said his father had been in declining health the past year and never could recover after he suffered a fall.

    But Nelson’s health problems could not fatigue his energy and zest, Byron Nelson added.
