  • My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Keep clippings organized with your own cookbook

    I had an unusual call a couple of months ago. Crystal Embry of Upton called and said she wanted to learn how to cook. I was flummoxed. I didn’t know what to say. I never thought about learning how to cook, and I was really surprised someone would call me and tell me they wanted to learn how to cook. I don’t think of myself as a very good cook. I am, however, a great connoisseur of food. I love it, I’m fascinated by it and when I find a good recipe, I’m ecstatic.

  • 'Oklahoma!' sweeps into the Plum Alley Theater

    Romance, statehood and the right to put up fences all are a part of the timeless Broadway musical “Oklahoma!” on stage at the Plum Alley Theater June 2 through 12.

  • Foreigner set to rock Elizabethtown

    With upcoming concert tour stops everywhere from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Dublin, Ireland, each member of the band Foreigner at some point is likely to be a “Long, Long Way from Home.”

    On Friday, audiences probably will hear the aforementioned ’70s hit when Foreigner performs in concert at Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown.

    “I think they’re going to see and hear all the classics,” lead vocalist Kelly Hansen said.

  • E'town's The Headstones open for Foreigner

    The Headstones, opening for Foreigner, were rocking long before Foreigner ever performed on stage.

    In the mid 1960s, while students at Elizabethtown High School, the Headstones first got the bug for music. They were a six-man band who played at colleges and placed second in a 1967 WAKY Band Battle at the Rod-n-Custom Car Show. The band split up, going different directions and some members moved out of town.

  • Allegro Dance Theatre to perform 'The Little Mermaid'

    The Allegro Dance Theatre will present “The Little Mermaid” this weekend at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School.

  • Local musician to open for Mark Chesnutt

    Brian Young is a musician who has a definite goal.

    “I want a record deal,” the Elizabethtown resident said.

    But just as definite is his idea about how he might or might not achieve such success.

    “If it goes any further, it’s God’s will,” he said. “I don’t pray for a record deal. I pray for God’s will.”

  • My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Candi Redmond's Koobey and Tabouleh

    Candi Kayrouz Redmond of Rineyville sent me her family’s recipes for Koobey and Tabouleh a couple of months ago, but because fresh mint was an integral part of the Koobey recipe, I knew I would have to wait until spring (or Kentucky Derby time) to make it.

    These recipes are Lebanese — Candi’s father was from Becharre, Lebanon; her mother was Italian. Candi calls herself a plain, old-fashioned cook, but she says her husband, Eric, likes to try new things and loves to spice things up.
