  • Pork Milanese is one of my favorite dishes to make for company. It’s a delicious Italian dish that can be paired with a salad, veggies, pasta or all of the above.

    For this particular meal, the dish was served with homemade potato gnocchi (dumpling pasta) in a tomato, basil and parmesan sauce. 

    The gnocchi decided to be difficult but luckily the end result was still a delicious treat.

  • “The Odd Life of Timothy Green” is a movie with heart but a storyline that’s hard to buy.

    It is heartwrenching, heartwarming and heartbreaking. But it’s also based on a strange premise that disconnects it from the rest of the film.

  • The Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown is expecting visitors to show up for a showdown when “High Noon” hits the screen Friday and Saturday.

    Showings of the film will be 7 p.m. Friday and 2 pm. and 7 p.m. Saturday. Tickets cost $5.

    The classic 1952 western, which stars Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly, tells the story of a retiring lawman who is compelled to face a man he sent to prison years earlier who wants to exact revenge.

  • The time had arrived.

    For months my girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and I had anticipated this day. We had parts in a scene being filmed for a forthcoming independent film.

    Very brief, nonspeaking parts, but you know what they say: There are no small roles, only small actors or small people or something else small or, like, you’re really petty or something if you’re not a team player, or yes, we have no bananas, or something. Anyway, you get the picture.

  • John Hardin High School senior and country and contemporary Christian musician Josh Proctor collected two of the three awards for which he was nominated by the Tennessee Country and Gospel Music Association.

    Proctor took home the Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year awards Sunday from the TCGMA. He also had been nominated for Songwriter of the Year.

    The Elizabethtown singer and songwriter is 18.
