    Sarah Ryan, who plays Nurse Ratched, appears opposite her brother-in-law, Aaron Taylor, who plays Randle McMurphy.

  • The summer movie season kicks off with a bang.

    The first weekend of May features one of the most anticipated offerings of the season, Marvel’s “The Avengers.” The movie gathers previous Marvel stars Iron Man, the Hulk, Captain America, Thor and team leader Nick Fury and tosses them in with new additions Black Widow and Hawkeye. What’s most impressive about this film is that it brings together established characters from previous movies helmed by multiple directors and different studios.

  •  It was a sunny day at lunch hour and steady traffic buzzed around Target in Elizabethtown. Hustling out the door, thinking of the next errand, keys in hand, I stopped short on the sidewalk.

    A woman was lying flat on her back in the parking lot, her feet inches from the storefront sidewalk, her motorized scooter straddling the curb.

    A child with her seemed to wonder what to do. Some older women had stopped and asked her if she needed an ambulance. She didn’t. More people came to help, but appeared not to know exactly how.

  • I had seen that the 1940 census was going to be released.

    After more than 70 years, that year’s official count of United States residents would become public record, opening up a treasure trove of records for genealogy buffs.

    With my 80-year-old uncle driving my 83-year-old mother back from her annual winter stay in Florida, perusing the records together when they arrived would make for a great night of story-telling about their teen years in New York.

  • Donald and Peggy Hawkins of Hodgenville will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with a reception in their honor from 2 to 5 p.m., April 14, 2012, at Sportsman’s Lake in Hodgenville.
