  • Three's company for the band Three People

    Three People began on a college campus and, because of graduate school, it might end there, too.

    Ramona Sudbeck, Austin Warren and Clay Graham, aka Three People, started their band when the three of them gathered in a small music room at Western Kentucky University their freshman year of college.

  • My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Carl Pitts' green pea salad


    Carl Pitts comes to The News-Enterprise regularly to bring news releases and calendar items for the Masonic Lodge in Hodgenville. My co-workers and I always look forward to his visits because he cracks us up. He knows more jokes than anyone I’ve ever met.

    He also enjoys good food, and has brought me a couple recipes in the past. I really lucked out recently because he brought a friend, Tom Kasey, with him, and I ended up getting a recipe from each of them. You get Tom’s recipe for chicken tetrazzini next week.

    \The loss was punctuated by a 20 percent reduction in state funding and the absence of United Way support, Cornell said, a ripple effect still resounding at the midway point of 2011.
