  • Since the days of Aesop, the tortoise and hare have been locked in an epic race.

    The Missoula Children’s Theatre tells the story a little differently and incorporates local children into the telling.

    In the MCT version the reptiles and mammals have an annual race in West Sandy Bottoms. Hype men play up their favorites and fan clubs cheer on their picks.

    The lines are drawn between green and brown animals, a sort of racial divide.

  • The following property transfers are listed as given on deeds at the Hardin County Clerk’s Office in Elizabethtown.

  • The following building permit information has been obtained from Hardin County Planning and Development Commission and the City of Elizabethtown Planning and Development offices. The name of the applicant, applicant’s address and use of permit are listed.

  • The Historic State Theater hopes to have audiences rolling in the aisles when it hosts comedian Tom Mabe at 8 p.m. today.

    Mabe, who is famous for prank calls and stunts, is the featured performer in the Historic State Theater Comedy Series. Mabe’s show, “Mabe in America,” airs on CMT.

    Opening for Mabe are comedians Zan and Sean Smith.

  • The Morrison Art Gallery at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College is hosting a Zach Medler exhibit through Feb. 9.

    His exhibit, Country Fair, explores Middle America through the cultural tradition of county fairs.

    Medler is an Indiana artist who works with functional ceramics, assemblage paintings, video, prints on paper or shirts, sculpture and installations.

    He uses block-printed and stenciled imagery to express Midwestern life.

  • Each year the NFL playoffs provide a spotlight to the best and worst performances in football games that matter.

    During the American Football Conference title game, the spotlight shone on Billy Cundiff. He is the place kicker for the Baltimore Ravens, which were playing the New England Patriots for the conference championship.

  • Buzz about George Lucas’ interest in telling a story based on the Tuskegee Airmen began long before he dove back into the “Star Wars” world to film the prequels. That was more than 20 years ago.

    Being a history buff and fan of previous Lucas projects, I remained interested in the film. A script was formed, but Lucas couldn’t get a studio to back it. In an industry that likes to tout its progressive nature, Hollywood’s refusal to tell this story is sad indeed. 

  • Some things are not meant to be viewed by the public — strategic game plans, personal account information and me trying to get my dance on with the Nintendo Wii “Just Dance” game.

    That’s not to say I won’t jump onto the dance floor in public. It’s more like saying when it comes to trying to mirror someone else’s practiced dance routine I look like a giant muscle spasm.

    Dancing isn’t generally something I’m self-conscious about, but the Wii version is a whole different matter.
