  • Vine Grove author pens first book

    Vine Grove resident Eric Fields Jr. wrote what he hopes will be the first of a six-book series.

    The 30-year-old works at Cardinal Health and, after a three-year process, self-published “The Peace Eden Files: House of Skeletons.”

    “I was inspired to write this book because I have always loved science fiction and supernatural stories where characters have cool abilities,” Fields said. “Once I had the idea, I just ran with it.”

  • Puppetry, masks, magic, music highlight 'Tales from the Arabian Nights'

    Few words will be spoken, but the message is intended to transform lives when Enchantment Theatre Company’s production “Tales from the Arabian Nights” spins its stories tonight.

    Presented at 7 p.m. at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School, the production is not a typical play.

    For one thing, director Leslie Reidel said the production is aimed at providing audience members a “richer, deeper and more positive feeling of the people around them.”

  • Puppy poses problem to chew on

    This winter’s snow and ice might have created headaches for a lot of people, but to my puppy, Zorro, they are just more things to chew on.

    Literally.

    Try as we might, my significant other, Rebecca Ricks, and I have not been able to dissuade the tiny Pomeranian from chewing on anything and everything.

    It really doesn’t matter what he finds to chew on. Paper towels, clothes, furniture, receipts, blankets, carpets, our other dog, Tybalt; it’s all the same to him.

  • And the Academy Award goes to ...

    Hollywood will be in all its glitz and glamour Sunday night for the 86th Academy Awards.

    For a movie nerd, picking the Oscar-winning film is like picking the winning Super Bowl team. Because many of this year’s nominated films are small releases, you might have missed them in theaters.

  • A celebrity nerd doing good for others

    Why is it all we see about people in Hollywood on the nightly news is all the bad things they do, as if only bad news should be shared.

    Occasionally, there is good news to share.

    Last week, one celebrity stepped in with his Converse tennis shoes and gave us all an example of kindness, which seems to be the norm for him.

    Zachary Levi, known for his title role on television’s “Chuck” and the voice of Flynn Rider in “Tangled,” responded in the Twitterverse in a heartwarming manner to a young lady’s Tumblr post.

  • Georgette Jones takes audiences back with her parents' music

    Georgette Jones will pay tribute to her legendary parents, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, on Saturday at the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown.

    The tribute concert will feature Jones and her band performing famous songs from both her parents.

    It’s important to Jones to be able to create this type of concert in tribute to her parents.

  • We need a break, not a judge

    You never know a stranger’s story.

    Every day, we come in contact with too many people to count. We line up behind them in stores, pass them on the roads, deal with them at work. You don’t think about it often, but every one of them has a life to run. Every one of them has strengths and challenges. Some have chronic burdens and some are just having a bad day.
