• My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Corn Flake candies

  • Holy Harmonica: The Waste Band has a rockn' priest and parishioners

    While some ministers play golf, fish or hunt, Chuck Walker, pastor of St. James Catholic Church in Elizabethtown, likes to play the harmonica in the Waste Band, he said.

    Some weekends he’ll play in the band on Saturday nights and then get up for Mass on Sunday morning.

    “This Waste Band thing is a nice, clean, relaxing and entertaining way to relieve a little stress and enjoy the company of others —in the band and in the audience,” he said.

  • Meet the Whos, Horton and a famous cat

    A singing elephant and dancing monkey might ring-a-bell-a-phant or seem too funky, but it’s all in fun for an iconic cat, a cat in a hat, if you can imagine that.

    “Seussical, Jr.” takes children’s book characters from page to stage as members of Allegro Dance Theatre in Radcliff prepare for their performance in the upcoming musical production. The play brings to life characters and stories based on works by Theodor Seuss Geisel, who wrote under the name Dr. Seuss.

  • Aliens invade but E'town native misses the ride

    “Battle Los Angeles” hit theaters over the weekend, but unfortunately it was missing Elizabethtown native Amy Dudgeon. Her scene was cut from the final edit of the film.

    The film follows a group of Marines as they engage technically advanced alien invaders while trying to evacuate a few citizens from hostile territory in Los Angeles. Most of the film is filled with doom and gloom as the aliens seek to wipeout mankind for our resources.

    If you are thinking that sounds familiar, you’re right.

  • More adjustments needed to this film

    As a reviewer, I have to separate my personal feelings about a film from the review and critique it based on the film’s quality, or lack there of.

    In saying that, I will be upfront and admit I have philosophical and theological problems with some concepts in “The Adjustment Bureau” and the film’s view on deity.

    But looking past that, “The Adjustment Bureau” has entertainment value and a convincing performance by Matt Damon (“True Grit”).

  • E'town native's scene was cut from a major movie

    Elizabethtown native Amy Dudgeon filmed a scene to appear in “Battle: Los Angeles,” opening nationally on Thursday. The film stars Aaron Eckhart and Ne-Yo.

    Unfortunately her scene was left on the cutting room floor. Dudgeon said it was a small role in a scene with Eckhart.

    “I'm a widow with a baby and a 3-year-old that he gives a medal of honor to that was her husband’s,” Dudgeon said.
