  • Midwest Morris Ale dancers visit Hardin County

    The Midwest Morris Ale, an informal gathering of teams of dancers, will bring dancers to northern Hardin County and Brandenburg on Sunday. There are several teams who dance Morris in Kentucky but this will be the first time teams have hosted an Ale.

    Morris dancing often is associated with Maypole celebrations dating back to the late 15th century in England. It was even mentioned by the Bard himself, William Shakespeare.

    The dance is an English folk dance based on rhythmic stepping and choreographed figures. Sticks, swords, handkerchiefs and bells are used.

  • Familiarity, diversity mark 2012-13 season for the PAC, HCP

    Sources including the Bible, fairy tales and Shakespeare find their way into the 2012-13 season for Hardin County Playhouse and Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center.

  • A perfect Mother's Day

    I’ve made a Mother’s Day break through.

    Last year, the fourth Mother’s Day since I brought my first sweet child into this world, I figured out exactly how to celebrate.

    Gifts aren’t a part of it. No mother worth her salt really wants gifts. Now, kid gifts are great — the handmade or hand-painted things, anything with a hand or footprint squished into it, even my last birthday gift, a hot pink Angry Birds T-shirt from the junior’s department at Kohl’s. Just a few sizes too small.
