  • Twisting with technology

    A couple of weeks ago, I became aware of a twist on a standard practice among young siblings: tattling.

    You know the practice. You probably engaged in it when you were a kid. I’m sure I did.

    Say you’re a kid, and your brother or sister does something they’re not supposed to. Obviously, mom or dad needs to be informed.

  • Elizabethtown woman produces polymer clay art

    At the dining room table in her Eliza-bethtown home, Tammy Dye operates an Italian pasta machine, turning the handle to produce a thick, doughy blue and red-violet material.

    Unlike the pasta for which the machine was devised, this material is not edible. It’s polymer clay, a form of plastic, which Dye uses to create jewelry and other items.

    “I think I was attracted to polymer clay because it has color,” Dye said.

    The medium has caught her interest to the point she has taken workshops and has taught it to her high school students.

  • It's time to open our eyes

    I have come to the realization I live a somewhat selfish life. I open a refrigerator full of food and claim I have nothing to eat or open a closet full of clothes and whine that I have nothing to wear.

    Most nights, I sit under the shelter and safety of a home and watch television only to complain about what I lack in life.

    It dawns on me how selfish my life is when I realize while I have all this there are children in our country and around the world who have none of these things.

  • Marky Mark and the clunky bunch

    Despite an overwhelmingly negative response from critics, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” raked in $100 million at the box office opening weekend.

    But will audiences like what they see? The film isn’t as horrible as most critics made it out to be, but it has some problems.

    First off, it is very long. Almost three hours.

    The News-Enterprise

    A local band that started out as a one-man project will perform in concert Monday at the Historic State Theater.

  • Mannequin art highlights exhibit at Wild Earth Gallery

    A classical guitar performance by musician John Riitchie will be included during an exhibit opening Saturday at Wild Earth Gallery & Gifts in downtown Elizabethtown. Titled “Art Bodies,” the exhibit will feature mannequins altered by area artists.

  • Event to feature concert, benefit military families

    A rock concert will highlight a charitable event beginning 2 p.m. Saturday when USA Cares sponsors a Veterans Benefit Concert in Radcliff.

    The concert will be held at the Reesor Farm off Ky. 313, just west of its intersection with U.S. 31W.

    Providing music for the event will be Romack, a high-energy classic rock band. Also slated for the event are children’s activites, food and door prizes.

  • Free showing of movie offered at State Theater

    Hardin County Farm Bureau is offering a free movie showing today at the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown.

    “Farmland” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. today at the theater at 209 W. Dixie Ave.

    With the support of the U.S. Farmers & Ran­chers Alliance, award-winning director James Moll traveled across the country meeting with farmers and ranchers in their 20s who are responsible for running their farming businesses. The film offers a first-hand glimpse into their lives.

  • 'Jersey Boys' forgot it's a musical

    A few years ago, I had the joy of seeing the hit Broadway musical “Jersey Boys” live on stage. Because the musical was so good and had so much acclaim, I expected magic from Clint Eastwood’s film version.

    That’s not exactly what happened.

    It has a few problems.

    “Jersey Boys” chronicles the formation and eventual breakup of the Four Seasons but, most importantly, it tells the story of their music.

  • A cellphone by any other number still rings as loudly

    For my birthday, I got a gift that keeps giving.

    Giving me problems, that is.

    Now, before I go any further, I have to be clear about a couple of things. First, the gift was a great item I had asked for and was not the source of the problems. Also, the experience to which I’m referring was not typical of the experiences I’ve had in the past when dealing with this company.

    That said, let me tell you about Cell-mageddon.
