  • A friend was laid off this month. Unfortunately, he’s added to a long list of friends and relatives who have become economic casualties.

    It’s so sad to see someone who made work their life have that work taken away. You’re troubled, wondering if they have their own safety net. But you’re encouraged, too, counting their skills and connections.

  • The year was 1985. A movie was released that made most teens want to wear a blue jean jacket, learn to skateboard and pledge to own a DeLorean when they grew up.

    That movie was “Back to the Future.” A teenager time travels with the help of a wild-haired scientist to find out a few things he didn’t know about his parents and learn time can be rewritten.

    Elizabethtown moviegoers have a chance to see this adventure and its sequels this weekend as the Historic State Theater celebrates the 1980s.
