  • When artist Nancy Musika needs creative inspiration for her glass paintings it’s as close as her front door.

    On her wooded property in Hodgenville, birds and animals find a friend in Musika, who often provides food for them.

    “I really love nature, and I love wildlife. I have a terrific respect for wildlife,” Musika said.

    That love of wildlife frequently translates to an art project.

    “Really, the process starts with me seeing a bird or something I just love,” she said.

  • “Planes”
    Rated PG for some mild action and rude humor
    Release date: Aug. 9
    Runtime: 92 minutes
    Rating: Basically, “Cars” in the sky

    Dusty the crop duster gets his chance to make it in the big race when Disney’s “Planes” takes flight Friday in theaters.

    It’s the story of a farm plane who dreams of competing against the best racers in the world.

  • Hugh Jackman sharpens his claws for the sixth time to play “The Wolverine.”

    The story picks up after the death of Jean Grey who turned into the evil dark Phoenix in the third X-Men film, “X-Men: The Last Stand.” Audiences new to Wolverine’s story may find themselves confused if they haven’t seen X3.

    They may be even more confused if they watch the films as they were released, which are not chronological. The previous Wolverine movie “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” takes place decades before this one.

  • It happened a few months ago.

    Sitting nervously at the computer, I hit “bid.” Then emails popped up telling me when I was outbid. I’d cautiously go back to the computer, increasing my bid until that final moment when I was informed the prize was mine.

    Then the excitement faded and I thought, “What did I just do?”
    What I did was cross over into the world of becoming a collector. What I bought was an action figure.
