  • At one point in his life, Central Hardin High School graduate Jordan Logsdon wanted to be in a rock ‘n’ roll band.

    “I really enjoyed rock ‘n’ roll music,” Logsdon said.

    That was before the now 21-year-old DJ/producer went to his first electronic dance music event.

    Once Logsdon went to such a party and saw the crowds getting into the music produced onstage, he was hooked. He knew he wanted to produce the same kind of music and see the event from the perspective of the DJ.

    Traditionally, January is the time we review the events and progress of the past year and plan and set goals for the year ahead.

    I’ll be the first to admit I’m not a big Tom Cruise (“Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol”) fan. In fact, unless he’s in the hands of a good director, he usually annoys me.

    But putting all that aside, “Jack Reacher” surprised me.
