  • 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.”

  • DiCaprio shines but 'J. Edgar' fades

    Audience reactions to a Tuesday night screening of “J. Edgar” starring Leonardo DiCaprio (“Inception”) were mixed. While most agreed the film was well made, they also thought some of the interviews they had seen about the movie were deceptive.

    That morning DiCaprio appeared on “Good Morning America” and implied that although rumors about Hoover’s private life would be explored, the portrayal in the film would be open enough to let the audience reach its own conclusions about those rumors.
