  • Local musician finds venue for his art

    Growing up in a family in which most everyone played an instrument or sang was bound to have an influence on Travis Puryear.

    “Music is a huge impact in my life,” he said.

    The 21-year-old Elizabethtown resident has been playing guitar since he was 12. Originally from Grayson County, Puryear played in the orchestra beginning in middle school and has learned to play other instruments.

    Puryear also can play violin and bass guitar, though he admits he’s “not so great” on drums.

  • Getting back on the write track

    The writing group I facilitate, which meets twice a month in Elizabethtown, hasn’t met since last year.

    Mother Nature is largely to blame for the cancellations. Out of the five meetings scheduled in the past two and half months at the Hardin County Public Library in Elizabethtown, three of them were canceled because of weather. One was canceled when the library was closed for a holiday and because of a staff development day at the library.

    Rated PG-13 for intense and bloody depiction of the crucifixion, and for some sequences of violence.
    Release date: Feb. 28

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

  • 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.”
