Today's Features

  • A few years ago, I had the joy of seeing the hit Broadway musical “Jersey Boys” live on stage. Because the musical was so good and had so much acclaim, I expected magic from Clint Eastwood’s film version.

    That’s not exactly what happened.

    It has a few problems.

    “Jersey Boys” chronicles the formation and eventual breakup of the Four Seasons but, most importantly, it tells the story of their music.

  • For my birthday, I got a gift that keeps giving.

    Giving me problems, that is.

    Now, before I go any further, I have to be clear about a couple of things. First, the gift was a great item I had asked for and was not the source of the problems. Also, the experience to which I’m referring was not typical of the experiences I’ve had in the past when dealing with this company.

    That said, let me tell you about Cell-mageddon.

  • The following building permit information has been obtained from Hardin County Planning and Development Commission and the City of Elizabethtown Planning and Development offices. The name of the applicant, applicant’s address and use of permit are listed.

    James D. Harris, 80 Mayfield Court, Elizabethtown. Use: attached accessory structure.

    Steve Brummitt, 1095 Summit-Eastview Road, Eastview. Use: detached accessory structure.

    Dale Doolin, 1589 Burns Road, Radcliff. Use: detached accessory structure.

  • Claire Allen knows her way around a stage.

    Not only has Allen acted upon that stage for Hardin County Playhouse, she also has painted sets and worked in various roles behind the scenes.

    “I painted several sets before I started acting,” Allen said.

    Additionally, Allen is president of the HCP board of directors. She has been a member of the board since late 2008.

    Allen recalled that first role as part of an ensemble in an HCP production of “The Sound of Music.”

    “I was a nun,” Allen said.

  • Nobody say it too loudly, but I think we might have turned a corner with my daughter.

    Sort of.

    I mean, she still can throw down with the best and toughest of them and will let us know when she’s not happy we don’t allow her to do something she’s convinced she’s perfectly capable of doing by herself. Like jump off the dining room table.

    Although, really, she has a perfect landing, so I probably should encourage more jumping off furniture. And cars. And trees. And whatever else is high and guaranteed to cause heart palpitations.

  • Rachel Daugherty, a former student at West Hardin High School, nominated this month’s “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks.”

    Rachel is part of her Central Hardin fan club. Rachel first got to try her cooking when she and Rachel fed the Central Hardin football team for their pre-game dinners. She also had the pleasure of cooking for their post-season banquet and the lunches and snacks for the Central Hardin High School JROTC and their Raider Team the past four years.

  • Sometimes food can be fun, especially when geeky friends are involved. Theming your snacks around something you are doing or watching can help elevate the mood at any gathering.

    This adventure involves food, friends and “The Goonies.”

    That’s right, “The Goonies,” a crazy group of kids who tried to save the Goon Docks in the 1985 flick.

    A group of friends decided to watch the movie last week. We decided to craft snacks around things featured in the film.
