  • 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.

  • My memories of 9/11

    As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 was observed over the weekend, many have recounted where they were or how they felt that day and in the time that followed.

    I had recently graduated from Seminary and was about to move home from Louisville. I went to work like any other morning to input data at a library collection agency in Southern Indiana. Some called us the library police.

  • Magazine features inked area resident

    About six months ago while attending a tattoo convention in Louisville, Adrienne Laine found herself offered a photo shoot with the suggestion that it might make the cover of a magazine.

    While some might find such an offer a little suspicious, her boyfriend, Tray Benham, knew it was legit. The photographer was an acquaintance.

    “I’ve known him for a while,” Benham said, explaining the man, Bill Tinney, took photos that appeared in magazines such as Easy Rider and Tattoo.

    He performed with Blue River, a band that includes banjo player Billy Edlin, of Elizabethtown.
