  • This time of the year is wonderful with so many fresh fruits and vegetables. My husband’s garden is already providing tomatoes, cabbage, green peppers, zucchini, summer squash and beets.

  • Despite an overwhelmingly negative response from critics, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” raked in $100 million at the box office opening weekend.

    But will audiences like what they see? The film isn’t as horrible as most critics made it out to be, but it has some problems.

    First off, it is very long. Almost three hours.

  • I have come to the realization I live a somewhat selfish life. I open a refrigerator full of food and claim I have nothing to eat or open a closet full of clothes and whine that I have nothing to wear.

    Most nights, I sit under the shelter and safety of a home and watch television only to complain about what I lack in life.

    It dawns on me how selfish my life is when I realize while I have all this there are children in our country and around the world who have none of these things.

    What would you pay if you could go to the store and purchase a bottle of time? What would you do with it and how much more would you value time? If time in a bottle was $5 per minute, how would that change your day?

  • Lauren Kinser is having the experience of a lifetime this summer.

    The 21-year-old Elizabethtown native is in Romania working with orphaned children through Home of Hope.

    A Bonner Scholar at Lindsey Wilson College, she always wanted to go to Romania but never made plans for it. About a month ago, she got a call and was asked if money wasn’t an issue how serious was she about going there.

    She said she would be on the next flight.

  • The Fourth of July will be filled with picnics and family cookouts.

    Potato salad will be plentiful, many a chicken will be fried and grills will be fired up for a variety of eats.

    Whether you feast at a picnic, spread out on a blanket or surrounding the kitchen table, it’s an American tradition to celebrate our nation’s independence with food.

    Actually, like many other cultures, it’s an American tradition to celebrate pretty much anything with food.

  • Thomas Wolfe once said, “You can’t go home again.” I disagree.

    I go home to a wonderful community festival, White Mills Days, as often as I can. It always is on the weekend of the Fourth of July and is because of the good graces of the White Mills Christian Camp who owns the old Richardson Hotel.

    The camp is second to none with wonderful facilities and this weekend, the White Mills Civic League holds its festival on their campground.

  • Comedian Groucho Marx is attributed as saying “Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read.”

    Jim Weise is outside of a dog in a big way.

    Weise was among those who helped re-establish Friends of the Hardin County Public Library last May, and he became president of the organization.

    “We started out with a book sale and had a second book sale,” Weise said.

    After the second book sale, membership grew from around 25 to about 67, he said.

  • “The Stephen Foster Story,” a regional tradition, kicked off this month in Bardstown for its 56th season.

    “The show was much longer when it first opened, at least 2.5 hours in length,” said Billy Bass, the media and development coordinator.

    Through the years, scenes have been rearranged, music changed and some lines cut, he said.

    “The show changes every summer with new cast members and personalities, so every year the show has it’s own distinct story,” he said.
