Today's Features

  • Poodle skirts and leather jackets are optional, but patrons Friday and Saturday at the Historic State Theater are invited to don such attire for showings of “Grease.”

    Set in the ’50s, the 1978 movie stars John Travolta as Danny and Olivia Newton-John as Sandy. The story focuses on the two characters finding themselves together again at Rydell High School after sharing a summer romance thinking they would not see each other after summer’s end.

  • Released in December 2011, “Coriolanus” is an independent film not seen in local theaters but released for rental last week.

    It is a modern day adaptation of William Shakespeare’s play.

    Modern military, flat-screen televisions and vehicles all are present, and Roman togas are replaced with modern wardrobe. But the “thees” and “thous” of Shakespeare’s time still are uttered throughout the film.

  • The recommendation feature used by many media websites and services has changed the way we read, watch, listen.

    And mostly, it’s a change for the better. It saves time and ushers you to treasures you might not otherwise have found.

    Since someone gave me a Kindle late in 2010, I’ve hardly picked up a bound paper book. With each electronic book I finish, another is just a few presses of a button away. I often find it in the “recommended for you” list.

  • Boy Scout Troop 221 supported Memorial Day by placing American Flags on gravesites at Kentucky Veterans Cemetery-Central. Scouts worked in conjunction with other groups and individuals to ensure all headstones received American Flags. Pictured are Scouts Ben West, Keagan Kirkman, Everett Kirkman, Braxton Kirkman, Grayson Kirkman, Steven Hof, Logan Ray, Eagle Scout Zack Broom, Scoutmasters Randy Ray and Hans Kirkman.

  • JoAnne and Dwayne Campbell announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Victoria Paige McNally of Vine Grove, to Michael Benjamin Poff of Elizabethtown, son of Sabine and Jon Poff.

    The prospective groom has an associate’s degree in information technology.

    The wedding is at 2 p.m. June 9 at Faith Lutheran Church in Radcliff.

  • Radcliff City Councilman Stan Holmes attended the book signing of Kathy Groob, author of Pink Politics and founder and publisher of Elect Women Magazine.

  • Working in a pediatric ICU, participating in fundraising efforts, creating church health programs and making mission trips are all part of a life Mary Jo Veirs believes she was led to.

    In mid-March, the Elizabethtown woman was named Nurse of the Year by Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, but she credits the entire unit and all hospital personnel with playing a part.

    Veirs called her co-workers at the hospital a “family.”
