    · Spinach leaves — pale green

    · Red cabbage leaves or canned blueberries — blue

    · Strong brewed coffee — beige to brown

  •  LaRue County High School senior Brian Anderson, middle, won the Elizabethtown sectional speech tournament March 27 while representing the Hodgenville Rotary Club. He will now move on to regional competition. At left is Rotary President Kyle Williamson. Speech Coach Katy Cecil is at right.

  •  (StatePoint) Forget cronuts, cake pops and cupcakes. Whether you’re planning an elegant afternoon tea or seeking an unexpected addition to your next brunch or cocktail party, there’s another chic pastry that deserves its day – the madeleine. These classic seashell-shaped cakes were named after their creator, Madeline Paulmier, by King Louis XV in the 18th century, so the story goes.

  •  After more than a decade of an 8:30 p.m. show time, “The Stephen Foster Story” and Salt River Electric production “All Shook Up” will start 30 minutes earlier in 2015. Both shows will begin at 8 p.m. at the J. Dan Talbott Amphitheatre in Bardstown this summer, with the house opening at 7:15 p.m. for seating.

    An earlier start time is favorable for our motor coaches, groups, and individual audience members alike. One added benefit for guests will be a larger selection of dining options after the performance, as both shows will end at 10 p.m.
