  • A former Radcliff resident has published his first novel.

    “Tales of the Fallen” is a fantasy novel and is available in paperback and ebook from www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com.

  • About this time last year our oldest dog, 16-year-old Pomeranian Nanook, had to be taken to the vet. He was given medication for his arthritis.

    The year before, about the same time of year, the vet had discovered extensive arthritis in Nanook’s back legs. He had quit using one of his hind legs and whimpered a lot. He got a cortisone shot and some medication. After a week or so he was much better, but he had medication to take as needed.

  • About halfway through the film “The Big Year” I asked myself “are birders really this competitive with their bird sightings?” A quick Google search gave me the answer. Yes.

    The quest to document sightings of the most species of birds really happens each year and sometimes it gets quite competitive. The film is based on a book by Mark Obmascik that shares the story of three individuals on the quest. As it says in the beginning, the film is based on a true story, only the facts were changed.

  • An afternoon of music Sunday in Elizabethtown will benefit Hosparus and promote cancer awareness.

    The Chattering Magpies, a duo consisting of Lorinda Jones and Greta Gillmeister, performs at the Historic State Theater at 3 p.m.

    Tickets are $5 in advance or $10 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at the Music and Arts Center of Cultural Learning office at 790 N. Dixie Ave., No. 800, in Elizabethtown.

  • I’m of two minds about Halloween.

    The children and trick-or-treating part I like. The young people I know plan their costumes well in advance, knowing months before the holiday the character they’ll be dressing up as. The girls want to be fairies and princesses and the boys whoever the current popular comic book character is. They look forward to going door to door in the neighborhood soliciting candy, their parents standing a respectful distance away on the street.

  • A local girl became a Glamour girl when she posed for a spot in the magazine during a summer internship.

    Meaghan Parker, a 2008 Central Hardin High School graduate, was featured in the October issue’s segment “The Best Fall Skirts for Your Shape.”

    She always dreamed of working in the fashion industry. Her uncle, the dentist for the editor-in-chief’s assistant, hooked Parker up with contact information for the internship.

  • I don’t make dips very often, but when I do, it will always be one of my three favorite dips – Bulle Dip, Artichoke Dip or Knorr Spinach Dip.

    The recipe for Bulle Dip, aka Buffalo Chicken Dip, came from Tami Miller who works at Merle Norman in Elizabethtown. She got the recipe from her friend, Freddie Bulle of Glasgow, thus the name, Bulle Dip. This is a real favorite in the newsroom. Several of my coworkers have said it tastes like Buffalo Chicken in a dip form, so feel free to rename it Buffalo Chicken Dip.

    There are plenty of strings attached when you are a principal chair in an orchestra. Students are learning this in The Music and Arts Center for Cultural Learning’s Youth Orchestra this fall.

    For the first time, Sept. 26, the orchestra conducted auditions for the various orchestral chairs, with principal chair being the most advanced. In orchestras, like football and other team sports, each person is given a position that best suits their skill level. These positions are called chairs.
