  • Central Hardin student introduces world to 'Girl From Iowa'

    A fictional girl from a real place practically has Zach Alexander sitting on top of the world.

    On April 10, the Central Hardin High School senior, performing as Ocean City, won the Louisville region round in the Hard Rock Rising Global Battle of the Bands. He has advanced toward the top spot, which puts him in the running for a chance to play Hard Rock Calling in London as part of a world tour as well as make an album and video with Hard Rock Records and win gear.

  • Cruise's latest, 'Oblivion,' is forgettable

    Tom Cruise tries his hand at science fiction once again in “Oblivion,” a state most audiences will be in after seeing the film.

    The problem with this movie is it’s nothing new. Science fiction used to be a genre that could be counted on for a fresh and unique experience.

    With the increased accessibility of special effects and the popularity of the genre, audiences now are inundated with these films. The sad thing is where there once was quality and excitement, we now get a series of copycat themes and unoriginal stories.

  • Dance, even if you don't know the steps

    From the stoop of middle age, I see kids dancing in the street. And they look ridiculous.

    Last weekend, I attended the wedding of my husband’s old friend. At the reception, I’d been bobbing my head and watching the dance floor, for a while. I was ready to dance but, wow, the people tearing up the dance floor were intimidating. The six people I knew at this wedding weren’t budging and it took a few songs to work up the nerve to join the dancing.

  • Audience participation part of ECTC children's play

    Audience interaction will be part of the fun when Toy Box Theatre at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College presents “Telling Tales Again, Sam?” on April 25. The children’s play will be offered 7 p.m. in the Science Auditorium on ECTC’s campus.

    Admission to the play is $2.

    “Telling Tales Again, Sam?” is directed by Katrina Eicher, professor of communications and theater.

  • Rhythm and blues center stage at the PAC

    A concert this weekend will transport audiences to the sounds of the ‘60s and ‘70s.

    The show features Clarence Carter, Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes and Radcliff’s own Harmony Jonez.

    Carter, known for the song “Slip Away,” began performing in the 1960s. Blind from birth, he taught himself to play guitar and hasn’t stopped performing. Another one of his hits was “Patches.”

  • Harmony Jonez on familiar turf

    Harmony Jonez, a performer in Saturday’s concert at Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center, is no stranger to Radcliff. The child of a military familiy, she is a North Hardin High School graduate who was involved in sports at the school.

    She got her first taste of performing in the seventh grade as a part of Black Ice, a Radcliff community step team, and performed at the Apollo Theater in New York.

  • '42': For the love of baseball, history

    People often incorrectly say sports have no true meaning in life. Tell that to Jackie Robinson and the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers.

    The film “42” chronicles Robinson’s step into Major League Baseball, from the first pitch to the history-making home run in the pennant race his rookie season.

    For those who don’t know much about baseball or history, Jackie Robinson broke segregation barriers when he stepped onto a major league field in 1947.

  • Dumbdevices working just fine

    Not long ago I was shopping with my girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I saw a sign advertising something for use with smartphones.

    “I guess we won’t be using that,” I told Rebecca. “We’ve got dumbphones.”

    It’s true. Comparatively, anyway.

  • HCP holds 'South Pacific' auditions

    Hardin County Playhouse holds auditions for the musical “South Pacific” at 6:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.

    Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific” centers on a nurse stationed at a U.S. Naval based during World War II. She falls in love with a French plantation owner who has two children she at first struggles to accept because of their race. The musical was praised for dealing with racial prejudice and won a Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1950.
