  • Wipe away the small stuff, protect the big stuff

    By SARAH BERKSHIRE

    The News-Enterprise

    If you spend much time with a child, at some point, you’re going to be caught without a tissue or napkin when something desperately needs to be wiped away.

    You could make a big deal of it, run around with an embarrassed kid holding the offending mess. Or you can do something that’s good enough for now and keep moving.

  • Reflecting on a birthday of a different sort

    I missed a birthday last week.

    Not just any birthday, mind you. This birthday is significant in a very particular way, but I confess I hadn’t really given it much thought before.

    Last Friday, Alaska turned 55. Well, at least it celebrated its 55th year of statehood.

    Though it had been in the works for a while beforehand, it was on Jan. 3, 1959, that then President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed Alaska the 49th state.

  • 2013 in film: The hits and misses

    In 2013 there was a lot to brag about at the movies. The year ended with many Oscar contending films that haven’t yet made it to wide release. But the ones that made an impact at the box office were some of the year’s highlights.

    One of the best movies of 2013 was “Saving Mr. Banks.” Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, as well as the supporting cast, gave excellent performances. It was a clinic on how to make a moving and entertaining film. It should be on everyone’s must watch list.

  • You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one

    Once upon a time there was a little girl who dreamed big dreams. She grew up on a farm in rural Kentucky but her dreams spread far across the stars.

    There were many things she dreamed of becoming and most of them were drawn from things she had seen in a film or read in a book. Oh, the dangers of reading a book, to believe in the impossible.

  • Seven to Shine dreaming of big time

    Three local musicians have Nashville dreams as they share the stage in a newly formed group, Seven to Shine.

    Zac Charles, Josh Proctor and Rebekah Lynn had solo careers of their own until they teamed up three months ago to form the country band.

    Charles posted a flyer at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College about wanting to form a band. Proctor saw it and they decided to work together. They decided they needed a woman to produce the sound they wanted. Proctor previously worked with Lynn, and it all came together.
