  • My old residence in Radcliff burned down.

    My parents owned that old house, and my girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I lived there for 19 years before moving to Elizabethtown in 2008.

    The unoccupied house, which Dad still owned, burned to the ground during the night several days earlier.

  • The best way to describe “Tower Heist” is a working man’s “Ocean’s 11.”

    It’s got the same appeal, just not as suave and sophisticated. “Tower Heist” is the story of workers in a swanky hotel who get their money swindled in a Ponzi scheme by one of the wealthy tenants. The workers plan a hesist on Thanksgiving to retrieve their money.
