  • The Cecilia Homemakers Lesson “Healthy Holiday Foods - A Matter of Choice” was presented by Brenda Lowe, Julia McKinley and Sharon Bush on Nov. 15 at the Cecilia Community Ruritan Building. There were 22 members present.

    The next meeting is Dec. 6 in the Fellowship Hall of Cecilia Baptist Church. The meal will be catered with each member paying for their own meal. Those present at the Nov. meeting were asked to pay in advance. Secret pals will be revealed, gifts exchanged and the group will be drawing for next years secret pals.

  • Students from Elizabethtown Community and Technical College’s Introductory Biology courses participated in a service-learning project where they assisted Greenspace with trail restoration at Buffalo Lake on Nov. 12. The group spent several hours removing invasive species from the habitat and strategically placing downed trees to slow erosion around the stream. The project was supervised by Greenspace board members David Lutz, Lori Timbers and Tiffany McFalls. A native species planting, scheduled for Earth Day weekend, will follow in the spring.

  • The Bluegrass Junior Optimist Club is a youth community service organization sponsored by the Rineyville Optimist Club. Members volunteer at Warm Blessings, the Brown-Pusey House and other service-centered businesses. Pictured are the September and October Volunteers of the Month.

  • Salim Najar was the guest speaker at the Nov. 8 meeting of the Elizabethtown Rotary Club. He gave a presentation on a Rotary-sponsored trip to Africa for several doctors and nurses. The team performed open heart surgery on a number of children and also provided local doctors and nurses the opportunity to learn how to perform the surgery.

  • At the risk of having my house egged for saying it, “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1” isn’t much of an improvement from its predecessors.

    Even “Twilight” fans would agree, they don’t go to the films for the acting or the quality of film. They go to see the characters they’ve grown attached to from the books and previous films.

  • Dressed in mid- or full-length skirts, arms extended upward, the three women clink their finger cymbals together to the rhythmic drumbeat of the music in the dance studio, their bodies swaying in unison.

    The shirts and blouses they wear are layered and colorful.

    The women are part of an American Tribal Style belly dance class at Blue Rose Studio in Radcliff, and they defy some common — but erroneous — perceptions of the art.

  • Veterans should never be forgotten, and if C.T. Christie has anything to say about it, never will be.

    Christie, a Kentucky Patriots volunteer, hopes to raise awareness of the needs of veterans and encourage volunteerism, especially by other veterans.

    “They just got to get more involved helping each other,” Christie said.

    The Rineyville man follows his own advice.

  • Forty masks from the Mask Museum in the Centro Cultural Antiguo Colegio Jesuita in Mexico are part of a free exhibit at Morrison Gallery at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. “Masks of Michoacán,” displays the collection from Patzcuaro, Michoacán.
