  • Reflections on a former home

    My old residence in Radcliff burned down.

    My parents owned that old house, and my girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I lived there for 19 years before moving to Elizabethtown in 2008.

    During a weekly gathering for game night at my dad’s house last week, my father mentioned the fire.

    The unoccupied house, which Dad still owned, burned to the ground during the night several days earlier.

  • Ensemble cast, old school laughs make 'Tower Heist' a hit

    The best way to describe “Tower Heist” is a working man’s “Ocean’s 11.”

    It’s got the same appeal, just not as suave and sophisticated. “Tower Heist” is the story of workers in a swanky hotel who get their money swindled in a Ponzi scheme by one of the wealthy tenants. The workers plan a hesist on Thanksgiving to retrieve their money.

  • Radcliff Model Railroad Association members feel on right track with hobby

    Helicopters, tanks and barracks dot the property of a 1970s-era Army fort. Not far away, Victorian-style homes with porches that sport hanging flower baskets line the streets of a small town where a park and gas station lend an air of simplicity to life there.

    These scenes are dwarfed by members of the Radcliff Model Railroad Association as they move around the layouts constructed for their trains.

  • Zombies everywhere

    I’m not sure at what point in our nation’s history zombies became cool. They’ve appeared in B horror films for years.

    Maybe we can blame Michael Jackson for it. Jackson and his zombie friends danced their way to music history in “Thriller.”

    It’s more likely the fault of popular films today with zombie themes or television shows such as “The Walking Dead.”
