    So I had a weekend that went from attending a storybook wedding to mingling with the undead.

    And the two even intertwined.

    The wedding Friday was for a couple of friends who both have a long-standing interest in movies. In fact, the groom worked on movies and TV shows in Hollywood for some time before meeting his bride-to-be at a 48-hour film contest in Louisville.

  • Guy Wallace grew up in Elizabethtown and set out to give back to the community that was good to him in his childhood.

    After attending Elizabethtown High School, Wallace studied biology at University of Louisville and then went on to physical therapy school.

    He came back to Elizabethtown because he liked the community.

    “The community was good to me as a youth and I thought I’d come back and be good to the community that was good to me,” Wallace said.

    One of the big factors that undermines effective performance is helplessness.

    A sense of helplessness is detrimental to the mental and physical health of an individual. People give up when they feel helpless. They believe there is no reason to keep trying. They feel defeated. This feeling could happen in a sporting competition or a work environment where the person feels powerless to influence any part of the situation.




  • Toni Swanson and Joseph Sweat announce their engagement and forthcoming marriage.

    The bride-to-be is a 2000 graduate of Central Hardin High School and studied early childhood education at Grays Harbor College in Aberdeen, Wash. She is a baker at Sam’s Club.

    You know the furnace heat felt very comfortable this chilly Tuesday morning with the temperatures in the upper 30s in some areas. Not quite that cold here, but rather chilly. Will need to bring my Christmas Cactus plants in soon. The instructions are to leave them outside until the temperatures get down into the 40s. We then hang them in the garage, attached to the house. In a short time, they start to bud then we bring them inside for the most beautiful bouquet of blossoms ever.
