Today's Features

  • Disneynature’s “Bears” is a treat to the eyes and to the heart. Any animal lover will enjoy this film.

    Bears are not as huggable as they look, but these creatures are so wonderful you might want to try.

    The story follows momma bear Sky and her cubs, Amber and Scout, on an adventure during the first year of the cubs’ life. They encounter dangers and joys throughout the journey.

  • Best-selling author Andrew Gross will discuss and sign his new book, “Everything to Lose,” at noon Tuesday at Fort Knox’s Barr Memorial Library.

    Gross will appear as a part of the Authors at Your Library series.

    The thriller, which was released Tuesday, is the story of Hilary Blum, who witnessed a freak accident that draws her into a conspiracy. The story takes place after Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast. 

    Gross is the author of “Eyes Wide Shut” and co-authored five books with James Patterson.

  • It’s time to get out the flapper dresses and gangster suits to audition for the Youth Theatre of Hardin County’s presentation of “Guys and Dolls.”

    It is the group’s 43rd production.

    Auditions are scheduled from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Hardin County Schools Performing Arts Center at John Hardin High School in Elizabethtown.

  • Some days, there’s nothing like eating a good sandwich for dinner.

    At the end of a long work day, most don’t have the energy or appetite for a big meal with all the fixings. On those days, a sandwich with something tasty on the side hits the spot.

    The best sandwiches often are the ooey-gooey, hot, cheesy, melted kind. The perfect grilled cheese can be one of the best-tasting things in the universe. Add a little bacon and you’ve got the makings of something spectacular.

  • Usually, Easter leftovers are hard-cooked eggs with names written on them or decorated by children.

    There also might be eggs from egg hunts. Check those out carefully. If there are any cracks where dirt and germs could get into the egg, discard them.

    But for those of you who had baked ham, you might have so much that you get tired of ham sandwiches.

    The recipes I have for you today use leftover ham.

  • Glen MacPherson makes a conscious effort to use the word “I” as little as possible.

    The Elizabethtown resident has a very specific view about his volunteerism with organizations such as Hardin County Habitat for Humanity and Helping Hand of Hope.

    “It’s not about me,” MacPherson said. “It’s about doing God’s work.”

  • Elizabethtown author Russell Lunsford has published his second children’s book.

    “Benjamin Nathan Tuggle: Adventurer, General George Washington and the American Revolution” was published in March and is Lunsford’s second children’s book featuring the title character. Benjamin Nathan Tuggle is a 12-year-old who finds he can time travel.

    Lunsford’s first children’s book was “Benjamin Nathan Tuggle: Adventurer, Daniel Boone and the Settlement of Boonesborough, Kentucky.”

  • It has been about six months since we welcomed a Pomeranian puppy into our home and Zorro has kept things interesting.

    Not only has he been dubbed Zorro the Destroyer, because of his penchant for turning everything into personal chew toys, but he has become an active sparring partner for Tybalt.

    Maybe one of the most noticeable contributions Zorro has made to the household is providing a springboard for new language.

    Let me explain.

  • For Elizabethtown native Aimee Boyd, a festive atmosphere is part of her job.

    As vice president of communications for the Kentucky Derby Festival, Boyd helps coordinate and promote events leading up to what has been called the most exciting two minutes in sports.

    “A few folks might think we only work a few weeks out of the year, but we work year round,” she said.
