  • Radcliff veteran publishes second book of poetry

    The News-Enterprise

    Following up a collection of poetry she published last August, Radcliff author Sandra M. Sutherland has published her second book.

    “Memories That Touch The Heart,” another collection of poetry by the 63-year-old disabled veteran, was published Jan. 10.

    The author’s first book of poetry was “A Journey Through My Mind.”

    Sutherland served in the U.S. Army for 17 years and graduated in 1994 from what was then known as Elizabethtown Community College.

  • Supporting cast the highlight of dark comedy

    “August: Osage County” has a cast full of A-list talent in a story of a family with a lot of problems. A lot may be an understatement.

    The family deals with suicide, drug addiction, alcoholism, infidelity, incest, pedophilia, abuse, neglect and lots and lots of anger. That might not be an exhaustive list, but it’s all I can remember.

    In short, it’s not a happy movie. It is described by many as a dark comedy, but the comedic moments are few and far between.

  • Groundhog, give us good news

    Sunday, Punxsutawney Phil will pop out of his groundhog hole and tell us if more winter is coming or if spring soon will be on its way. For the love of sanity, please, let it be spring.

    It’s probably not a stretch to say everyone’s had it with this winter. Mostly because of the bone-chilling cold.

    The county has been plagued with pipes bursting, furnace issues, school closings and frozen spots on the roads. In short, winter has not been a welcomed friend.

  • Residents of Tuna return to HCP stage

    Best friends take the stage once again at Hardin County Playhouse for the fourth play in the Greater Tuna series, “Tuna Does Vegas.”

    Bo Cecil and Josh Logsdon each play about 12 different roles in the two-man comedy.

    The story involves Arles and Bertha, a couple featured in the three previous plays, who are heading to Las Vegas to renew their wedding vows on Valentine’s Day and residents of the town of Tuna decide to go with them, Cecil said.

    A play like this has challenges, but is fun for these two friends to do together.

  • Elizabethtown author publishes supernatural novel

    Elizabethtown author Tabitha Douglas found inspiration for her novel “Master Bloodline” while asleep.

    “I had a weird dream that I thought would make a good story beginning,” she said.

    Douglas, 20, wrote down the dream and began “expanding on it,” she said.

    That was several years ago.

    “I actually started writing the book my freshman year of high school and finished it in my sophomore year,” said Douglas, a Central Hardin High School graduate.

    The Historic State Theater is going country Saturday as two area singers and Nashville hopefuls take the stage.

    Hannah Ellis of Campbellsville is headlining the event. The singer-songwriter sees her songs as pieces of herself put to music.

    “I love being able to put into words what I am feeling or going through,” she said. “Writing is definitely a great career move, but it is also very therapeutic.”
