  • 'It's time to light the lights ...': A review of 'Muppets Most Wanted'

    The Muppets are back for a sequel, or as Dr. Honeydew points out, one of many sequels.

    This time around in “Muppets Most Wanted,” they run into some trouble during a world tour when an evil tour agent, Ricky Gervais (“Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian”), replaces Kermit with Constantine, the most dangerous frog in the world.

    Mistaken for Constantine, Kermit is thrown in a Russian prison. Meanwhile, the other Muppets tour Europe, where guest stars abound.

  • Change is good ... unless aliens are involved

    Change is good. Or so they say.

    Then again “they” say a lot of things and we still don’t know who “they” are.

    Why don’t “they” change that?

    At any rate, I won’t argue with the aforementioned statement. It’s true enough, many times.

    Change can keep things from getting stale and can spark inspiration. In fact, I purposely break routine when I realize it has become just that: routine.

  • Leaping lizards, Allegro Dance Theatre presents 'Annie Jr.'

    The sun will come out for the Allegro Dance Theatre as it presents “Annie Jr.” Friday night at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School.

    The original authors and lyricists created the junior version for schools, Allegro director Carol Zagar said. It is used to help students learn literature and be able to produce and perform the musical for their schools, she said.

    The 60-minute version has all the original songs except the title song, “Annie,” Zagar said.

  • Local musician finds venue for his art

    Growing up in a family in which most everyone played an instrument or sang was bound to have an influence on Travis Puryear.

    “Music is a huge impact in my life,” he said.

    The 21-year-old Elizabethtown resident has been playing guitar since he was 12. Originally from Grayson County, Puryear played in the orchestra beginning in middle school and has learned to play other instruments.

    Puryear also can play violin and bass guitar, though he admits he’s “not so great” on drums.

  • Getting back on the write track

    The writing group I facilitate, which meets twice a month in Elizabethtown, hasn’t met since last year.

    Mother Nature is largely to blame for the cancellations. Out of the five meetings scheduled in the past two and half months at the Hardin County Public Library in Elizabethtown, three of them were canceled because of weather. One was canceled when the library was closed for a holiday and because of a staff development day at the library.
