  • Adult Education making strides in Lincoln Trail

    By Diane Kelley
    Director of Hardin County Adult Education

    As an adult education instructor, I’ve seen firsthand how education leads to a higher standard of living and an increased quality of life.

    Advocates for animals
    Susan Spicer is one of the bravest people I know. Why? Because she goes to bat for the voiceless — animals that are abused and neglected.

    I visited the Working the Puzzle for Autism Center to take photos of the children participating in a painting activity. I knew there would be some great photo opportunities there. But, to be honest, I just like going to the center. It’s such a happy place, and I love watching and interacting with the children. They are so very special.

    By G. B. Dixon

    If we have learned anything during the festive months just passed, it is that second helpings are the natural consequence of a pleasing first course. 'Seconds' divert us for a little while longer from life's toils and woes, or help us forget the taste of some preceeding yuck. Where the first is good, so generally goes the second. Such promises to be the case when Kentucky Classic Theatre brings back its wildly popular production of "Steel Magnolias" this week.
