  • A comic book weaves artistic skill and storytelling together. Each panel is a work of art, flowing into the next to tell a story.

    “For some people comic books are superhero stories or Archie comics, but really the level of storytelling and the creativity involved makes that idea limiting,” said comic artist Bill Nichols of Elizabethtown.

    There’s a strong appreciation for comic books out there, and Nichols started a gathering of enthusiasts, which meets monthly to discuss the genre and share ideas.

  • The following civil suits are filed in Hardin County Circuit Court in Elizabethtown. Et al is a Latin abbreviation meaning “and others.” Lawsuits give only one side of a disagreement and do not reflect any counterclaims and/or settlements that may have occurred since the initial suit was filed.

  • Here we are in the first month of 2012 and we are continuing on our alphabetic tour of the grocery market. You might have forgotten but our last two letters were H and I and we learned about honeydew melon and Iceberg lettuce.

    This month, we will pick up with J and K. I want to tell you about jicama and kiwi.

  • Yeah, OK. I’m not immune to some pop culture experiences.

    So when I found out VH-1’s series “Pop Up Video” was returning, I admit I set my DVR to record the episodes.

    You know the series, right?

    A music video plays, and the entire time, bits of related trivia pop up on the screen. They found what in one of the hotel rooms where Andy Grammer’s video “Keep Your Head Up” was shot?

    For someone like me who enjoys trivia, the series, which began in the 90s and later ended, became addictive.

  • “We Bought a Zoo” has the potential to have everything going for it. It has animals, kids and Matt Damon (“Contagion”). But I wasn’t convinced it is completely family friendly.

    The story is loosely based on a real life journalist, who bought a zoo in the English countryside,  and his two children. The film version is set in California.
