  • Kyu Reisch may stand just under five feet tall, but the long list of ways she’s served her community makes her one of the tallest women in town.

    She's logged more than 17,000 hours of volunteer service with the American Red Cross, donated another 5,000 volunteer hours to Army Community Service, provided her bilingual skills as a volunteer translator and has somehow found time along the way to run a restaurant and stand out athletically.

  • Some classes at area high schools seem more like the TV shows “CSI,” “Law & Order” or “Project Runway” than readin’, writin’ or ‘rithmatic.

    Take the Forensics class taught by Deborah Whelan at North Hardin High School, for example.

  • A special group of women have been lending their hands to help the community, leaving behind a purple wake of good deeds.

The group seeks to provide cultural acitvities and civic and social entertainment to the Hardin County community.

  • Wendy Wilburn seems to do Everything 4 Kids.

    The business owner has two stores — named Everything 4 Kids, of course — in Radcliff and Elizabethtown. But the disabled veteran is more than a business owner. Wilburn helps moms, children and families by providing donations and resources.

    The origin of her business venture began in 2001 when she and her husband, Chris, were both active duty military. Wilburn began selling her son’s “gently used” items at a flea market in Elizabethtown.

  • When it comes to preserving a family at risk of being separated, Stephanie Harrison is ready to help.
    Harrison is director of Intensive Family Preservation Services/Community Collaboration for Children in Elizabethtown. Its programs serve the eight-county Lincoln Trail District.
    “We do prevent children from being taken from homes,” Harrison said.
    Clients are families referred by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services that have been assessed as being at risk of being separated for any number of issues including neglect and abuse.
