  • 'The King's Speech' borders on perfection

    “The King’s Speech”
    Rated R for some language
    Release date: Dec. 10, 2010
    Runtime: 118 minutes
    Rating: Five out of five take slates


    “The King's Speech” had a limited release at the end of 2010 and has now made it to Elizabethtown theaters. My recommendation is to see it and then see it again.

    This film is phenomenal.

  • Gourd artist Jedy Hodge explains the craft

    A painter’s palette can be any number of materials: cloth, canvas, wood, or in the case of Jedy Hodge, gourd.

    “I started painting in 2005, but I didn't really have any background in painting," Jedy said. "It's just like a hobby.”

    Jedy and her husband, Kris, always liked gourds, ever since Kris’s grandmother owned two gold-painted gourds. When Jedy first became interested in painting, she visited the state fair to get an idea of what was being done in gourd artwork.

  • SideWayZ is straight up rockin'

    SideWayZ was started by the original drummer but the name began with a Dierks Bentley song.

    When the band began Bentley’s song “Sideways” was popular, and band member Ashlie Logsdon thought it would be a good name for the band.

    “She thought about it for a couple of weeks, she wanted something catchy and not too long of a name,” band member John Langley said. “The names that the rest of us were coming up with she didn’t like and everyone agreed they liked SideWayZ so we went with that.”

  • Working at home with a distraction named Boo

    Have you ever attempted to work from home? Let me rephrase, have you ever had to work from home with a mischievous 9-year-old Chocolate Labrador trying to get your attention?

    I did a couple of weeks ago when it snowed. At first it was great.

    I threw my hair up in a hair clip, put on my comfy flannel PJ pants, wore my ratty Packers sweatshirt and didn’t even worry about makeup.
