  • Caregiving can be stressful, and these stresses can be exacerbated around the holidays as you are faced with added responsibilities and obligations.

    Whether this is your first holiday season as a caregiver or you have been providing care for years, you can do several things to make the holidays easier on you, the person you're caring for and your extended family and friends by following these recommendations:

  • South Fork Baptist Church honored one of its longtime members Sunday as he celebrates his 100th birthday.

    Madison “Mac” Mather, the church’s oldest member and deacon emeritus, received dozens of cards and a cake comprised of more than 100 Krispy Kreme donuts.

    Pastor Jonathan Carl said the cake symbolized Mather’s love of sweets. A donation of 100 Gideon Bibles symbolized his dedication to church.

    Madison’s son, Ron Mather, a Hodgenville attorney, attended the Sunday service in honor of his father. 

  • When you think of Christmas movies, one that may leap to mind is National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation and lovable father figure Clark Griswold, who wishes his family to have the perfect holiday. One particularly funny subplot of the film is Clark’s desire to have impressive Christmas lights, but his inability to get them to work. When Clark’s house finally lights up, it blinds his neighbors and causes a power outage.

  • Santa’s Helpers Toy Drive

  • “More.”

    This is a small word, but it summarizes the hopes and obsessions of many Americans. More money, more success. More of this and more of that.

    Many live for “more.” Our next raise, our next house. They search, but never seem to find, and most are unhappy in their search.

  • Rolling Fork Christian Church, located in Lyons Station, is hosting a live nativity scene on Friday, Dec. 19.

    Tom Smith, who has attended the church with his wife, Phyllis, for the last six years, said the members have put on the sometimes-chilly production honoring the birth of Christ for about four years.

    The actors dress in robes and some of the men have grown their beards in preparation for the evening, he said. There will be a live camel, sheep and donkey.

  • Kristin Brianna Albertson, of Hodgenville, and Jonathan Cecil Morgan of Hyden, announce their engagement and forthcoming marriage.

    The bride to be is the daughter of Rich and Heather Albertson, and the granddaughter of Randy and Gale Schmittou of Hodgenville, and Thelma Albertson of Texas and the late Richard Albertson Sr.

    The prospective groom is the son of Cecil and Donna Morgan and the grandson of Jonny and Jeanette Baker, and the late Cecil and Bella Morgan, all of Hyden.

  • A trio of fundraisers is planned this weekend for a local man who is recovering from injuries sustained when he fell from a tree stand.

    Louie Payne, who owns Arrowhead Archery & BBQ, was hunting with a friend in Hardin County on Oct. 16. He was cinching a safety strap on the tree stand, when it snapped. He fell about 25-feet, breaking four ribs and vertebrae.

    He was transported to University of Louisville Hospital where he underwent surgery. He has returned home but is traveling daily to Frazier Rehab in Louisville. The therapy will last 12 weeks.
