  • Duke the fierce and grumpy

    Most of the time, most people find themselves cheering on the little guy.

    When David faced and defeated Goliath, everyone cheered, “Way to go, Dave.”

    When a small band of rebel forces took on the galactic empire in “Star Wars,” we all yelled, “Use the force, Luke.”

    When Rocky took on Apollo Creed, we joined the chant and yelled, “Rocky, Rocky, Rocky.”

    When the underdog defeats the No. 1 team in any sport, we all suddenly become fans.

  • ‘Dolphin Tale’ an inspirational family film

    In a market that doesn’t have many inspirational family films, “Dolphin Tale” is a refreshing change.

    It is a story based on a real life rescued dolphin named Winter who was found caught in a crab trap that damaged her tail. The tail had to be amputated and Winter now swims with the aid of a prosthetic tail.

  • Radcliff poet's collection includes celebrated works

  • Becoming part of something

    Sometimes, without planning, the things you become a part of become a part of you.

    This month The Bard’s Corner Writer’s Group turns 9 years old, and as the founder and facilitator of the group, I’m more than a little amazed at this.

    Mainly, it’s because I never planned to start a group. Initially I wanted to join one that was already established.

    Just before I started a group, I got a chance to join a wonderful group that meets at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College.

  • The Best: Favorite macadamia nut dessert recipes

    Today you get two really fantastic recipes that I would have to rank in my top five all-time favorite dessert recipes. One is easy and quick to make, and one is really time consuming, but I love them both, partly because they feature macadamia nuts.

  • Germs run rampant in 'Contagion'

    An unknown virus finds itself spreading throughout the globe with many lives entangling to find its source and cure.

    This basic plotline of “Contagion” might sound like films you’ve seen before but this one is different. It’s not like “Outbreak,” which was an action-adventure piece that disguised itself as medical thriller.

  • Dash of Class: Apple dishes fit for fall

    Apples, apples, everywhere. September and fall in general is the most popular time for apples. But with them being available from all over the world, we can enjoy them most any month of the year. More than half of all apples grown in the United States for fresh eating come from orchards in Washington state. One apple has five grams of fiber, supplying 20 percent of the daily fiber recommendation. Americans eat approximately 19 pounds of fresh apples annually, compared to about 46 pounds consumed annually by Europeans.
