  • Vintage cars will be Cruisin' the Heartland this weekend

    Rev up your engines, polish up those tires and wipe down the chrome because Cruisin’ the Heartland returns to town this weekend.

    Last year’s even was expected to draw 300 cars but organizers were thrilled to see about 950 cars from six states lining the streets of downtown Elizabethtown.

    “We were very happy for the first year,” organizer Rik Hawkins said. “It felt like you’d walked back in time with all the chrome, glitter and muscle cars.”

  • Dash of Class: Enjoying summer's harvest

    The Carrot Zucchini Bread recipe published last week had mistakes in it. I apologize, but I can only trust the website I get recipes from periodically. I can’t always make every recipe, because of time and financial restraints. Thanks to one of my readers for letting me know. However, I am giving you two zucchini bread recipes today and if you want to add carrots, you can do that by adding shredded carrots to the batter.

  • Boxwine is classy, but not that classy

    Boxwine considers their style of music, lyrics and attitude “classy, but not really,” Zac Newton said. That somewhat-classy description is the origin of the band name.

    “We see the concept of boxed wine in the same way, as a sort of low-class attempt at sophistication,” Newton said.

  • PAC director turns actor to portray famed assassin in one-man show

    Bart Lovins hasn’t been himself lately.

    Dyed and permed hair, colored contacts and visits to the gym are all part of his physical investment in playing the role of a famed assassin in the one-man play “To Bury Caesar: An Evening with John Wilkes Booth.”

    “As a musician, your instrument is your instrument,” Lovins said. “As an actor, your body is your instrument.”

  • The Best: Three favorite crowd-pleasing cakes

    I’m featuring three of my favorite cakes today – Italian Wedding Cake (also known as Italian Cream Cake), Fresh Apple Cake and Pumpkin Sheet Cake.

    I remember getting the Italian Wedding Cake recipe from a cookbook published by University of Kentucky alumni some 30 to 35 years ago, and I’ve had the Fresh Apple Cake recipe about that long, too. The Pumpkin Sheet Cake came from Taste of Home magazine probably 20 years ago.

    Surrounded by yellowed historical documents, 100-year-old diaries and letters from the Civil War era is exactly where Kristi Johnson likes to be.

    She used those documents to create the “Civil War Ghosts and Legends Drama,” which begins at 8 p.m. Friday.

  • Louisville thief focus of Radcliff writer's historical novel

    A Radcliff author has published “Underground,” a historical novel about small-time thief who becomes a high-society millionaire in Louisville.

    Billy H. Dean, a Radcliff resident and U.S. Army training specialist at Fort Knox, wrote the book published by Xlibris.

  • Dash of Class: Cooking with the letter C — Carrots and crab apples

    C is the letter of the month and I first thought of carrots and crab apples. The foods that came to my mind were carrot cake and crab apple jelly, but there are many more ways to use the ever popular vegetable, carrot, and the not so well known fruit, crab apple. I hope you will experiment with these new recipes that are not only healthy, but can be delicious as well.

    Carrots are an excellent source of Vitamin A, which helps to prevent night blindness. It is no wonder we think of a bunny eating carrots having excellent eyesight.

  • After more than decade of foundation, If Walls Could Talk finds voice

    At the age of 10, Aaron McDowell and Matt Miller decided to form a band.

    The duo split up when Miller moved away.

    Eleven years — and a bit of life experience later — they found themselves reforming a group with another musician, and Elizabethtown rock band If Walls Could Talk was born.

    If Walls Could Talk consists of McDowell, vocalist and guitarist; Miller, bassist; and Patrick Nalley, drummer. Band members hope their music will help listeners deal with their emotions by conveying their own emotions, McDowell said.
