  • Doug and Sandy Poteet of Hodgenville have been turning a lot of eyes this summer as they drive through the streets of town and nearby countryside.

    Actually, they’re not causing the double takes so much as the vehicle they’re riding – an olive drab Russian military motorcycle complete with side car and red stars.

    “It’s a DNEPR (pronounced D-KNEE-PRO) Model MT 16, produced in Kiev, Ukraine, the same model used in the Indiana Jones movie with Sean Connery as his father,” said Poteet, who lives on Eugenia Avenue in Hutcherson Heights.

  • Winter squash, which includes acorn squash, butternut squash, pumpkin and other varieties, is low in fat and sodium. It is an excellent source of vitamin A and fiber. Store winter squash and pumpkins in a cool, dry place and use within one month.

  • Fort Knox Federal Credit Union broke ground for a new office in Meade County Sept. 25.

    The announcement for the new facility came just weeks after the credit union held a ground-breaking ceremony in Hodgenville.

    The Brandenburg office has been in existence five years. It will be replaced by a free-standing building.

  • The play “Ain’t No Massa Ova Me” will be performed 4 p.m. Oct. 3 at the Hodgenville Civic Center, 200 S. Lincoln Blvd. Tickets are $10.

    The musical drama revolves around two sisters who suffered many hardships but fought to escape slavery in war torn Kentucky – and the impact of Abraham Lincoln signing the Emancipation Proclamation.

    Call 502-409-1716 for more information.

  • First Baptist Hodgenville was host to the South District Youth March for Christ on Saturday morning. The South District is composed of nine counties including Boyle, Washington and Lincoln counties.

    Eight churches were represented with about 80 people attending. Each church represented had banners and shirts with their logo.

    Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse delivered greetings from the city. There were individual classes for primary, intermediate and adults.

  • Signups for the Conservation Stewardship Program will be accepted through Wednesday, Sept. 30. CSP is a voluntary program that encourages agricultural and forestry producers to maintain existing conservation activities and adopt additional ones on their operations.

    Unlike the Conservation Security Program under the 2002 Farm Bill, which was available only in designated watersheds, CSP is available statewide.

  • Merrill Kurtz IV is the new associate pastor for children and family ministries at Ovesen Heights Baptist Church.

    He is a graduate of Boyce Bible School and is attending Southern Seminary in Louisville.

    His responsibilities include developing programs to minister to children and families as well as fill the pulpit as needed.

    He and his wife, Lora, and their son, Joseph, reside in Elizabethtown.

  • The 4-H program in Kentucky turns 100 this year.

    Since its inception in 1909, it has provided countless programs for youth. The earliest offerings were in agriculture, but more activities were added over the years including photography, communication, leadership, shooting skills and dog clubs.

    By 1939, 4-H programs existed in every county in Kentucky. Last year, 233,423 children participated in 129 different 4-H programs, projects and camps.
