  • At the June meeting of Ancestral Trails Historical Society at the Hardin County Public Library in Elizabethtown, Jon Whitfield presented a program on “The Brandenburg Stone,” which was found many years ago by Craig Crecelius on his farm in Meade County.

  • The last time I wrote a column on cooking for one and two, I got great responses. I promised I would do that again, so today is the day.



    This week I saw a report on “Good Morning America” on body image. It wasn’t through the eyes of a 30-year-old woman or even a teenager.

    The story was about a 6-year-old who is already obsessed about her body image. What is frightening is that this was not a unique situation.

    They ride bicycles that go by names such as Cannondale Rush, Haro Flightline and Motobecane Fantom DS.

    But what they ride isn’t as important as the fact that the members of Mountain Bike Kentucky just love to go mountain biking and want to share their passion.


    Mary Iseler of Elizabethtown sent me a recipe recently that is my current favorite. I think I probably turned up my nose when I saw the name – Zucchini Brownies. I couldn’t imagine anything stranger. But I have loved the other recipes that Mary has sent me, so I gave the brownies a try.

    What a winner. I loved them. In fact, I made them four times within a three-day span.
