  • Waiting on the results from TV tryout

    KaSaundra Hardin, 15, may not know if she’s made it to the stage of “America’s Got Talent,” but she has a good feeling about the auditions the last weekend in January.

    The John Hardin High School student auditioned during a whirlwind trip to Atlanta.

    When driving around to make sure she knew where to go the next day she noticed people were already standing in line. She rushed to get changed and went back to stand in line all night. Her nerves wouldn’t let her sleep.

    This film is phenomenal.

  • Gourd artist Jedy Hodge explains the craft

    A painter’s palette can be any number of materials: cloth, canvas, wood, or in the case of Jedy Hodge, gourd.

    “I started painting in 2005, but I didn't really have any background in painting," Jedy said. "It's just like a hobby.”

    Jedy and her husband, Kris, always liked gourds, ever since Kris’s grandmother owned two gold-painted gourds. When Jedy first became interested in painting, she visited the state fair to get an idea of what was being done in gourd artwork.

  • SideWayZ is straight up rockin'

    SideWayZ was started by the original drummer but the name began with a Dierks Bentley song.

    When the band began Bentley’s song “Sideways” was popular, and band member Ashlie Logsdon thought it would be a good name for the band.

    “She thought about it for a couple of weeks, she wanted something catchy and not too long of a name,” band member John Langley said. “The names that the rest of us were coming up with she didn’t like and everyone agreed they liked SideWayZ so we went with that.”
