  • Bridge to honor sister

    Sr. Sodelbia Hughes was born at the end of the 19th century. Later this month, in the 21st century, a bridge will be renamed in her honor.

    Perhaps the timing is fitting for a woman who was 50 years ahead of her time, according to one of her colleagues, Sr. Kay Carlew.

    “She was a teacher. She was a social worker, and she was a politician, in the best sense of the word,” Carlew said.

  • The jets are back in town

  • Sew This & That: Finding the right fit

    If memory serves us correctly, there is a song that begins, “June is busting out all over.”

    That almost describes last month; how some of our ladies discovered their correct sizes and shapes at our adult sewing class. Tape measures were flying around. There was quite a lot of poking, huffing and squeezing. We decided to extend this class later in the year for those of you who missed out on the “Importance of Being Well Fitted.”

  • Yes she can: Linton recognized for resiliency

    One word describes A’Marria Linton above all others: determined.

    So, it’s really no surprise that she’s been awarded the 2014 Yes I Can award by the Kentucky Council for Exceptional Children (KYCEC) in the category of technology.

    Her entire life, she’s had a major obstacle in her path, but not once has the 10-year-old used it as an excuse or allowed it to keep her from the joys of being a kid.

  • More bang for the buck

    A fixture in downtown Springfield each summer — weather permitting — has been the annual Independence Day event, and the 14th installment of the celebration could do more than ever to get local residents involved.

    The event will be held on Thursday in Springfield, maintaining the tradition of hosting the event on the evening prior to the 4th of July holiday. Though the rain, or lack thereof, has forced it to be rescheduled in recent years, all indications are that this year’s event will be free of interruption.
