    The emotion, depth and believability of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” hinges on the performance of Andy Serkis and he pulls it off.

  • Twisting with technology

    A couple of weeks ago, I became aware of a twist on a standard practice among young siblings: tattling.

    You know the practice. You probably engaged in it when you were a kid. I’m sure I did.

  • It's time to open our eyes

    I have come to the realization I live a somewhat selfish life. I open a refrigerator full of food and claim I have nothing to eat or open a closet full of clothes and whine that I have nothing to wear.

    Most nights, I sit under the shelter and safety of a home and watch television only to complain about what I lack in life.

    It dawns on me how selfish my life is when I realize while I have all this there are children in our country and around the world who have none of these things.

  • The sun still shines bright on 'The Stephen Foster Story'

    “The Stephen Foster Story,” a regional tradition, kicked off this month in Bardstown for its 56th season.

    “The show was much longer when it first opened, at least 2.5 hours in length,” said Billy Bass, the media and development coordinator.

    Through the years, scenes have been rearranged, music changed and some lines cut, he said.

    “The show changes every summer with new cast members and personalities, so every year the show has it’s own distinct story,” he said.
