Today's Features

  • 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.

  • Riding the wave of Elvis’ Jan. 8 birthday, the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown will show “Blue Hawaii” on Friday and Saturday.

    Showings of the 1961 film are at 8 p.m. both days and 2 p.m. on Saturday.

    “Blue Hawaii” features Elvis as a soldier returning to his Hawaiian home where he takes a job as a tour guide at his girlfriend’s agency. “Can’t Help Falling in Love” is a featured song in the film.

  • Service Director Dana Taylor and President Travis Roberts of the Rotaract Club of Greater Hardin County hand out donated supplies to more than 80 local families in need through Warm Blessings Soup Kitchen. Supplies were collected throughout the month of December, and included such items as toothpaste, soap, shampoo and other daily necessities.

  • Satsuyo “Suzi” Killian, left, is pictured with Rotary Club Treasurer Larry French and Mrs. Cook. Suzi Killian has served the Rotary Club lunches for the past 24 years; Mrs. Cook prepares the meals.

  • Care4Ever Senior Center recently held a holiday party.

  • Elizabethtown Chapter 1050 of the National Active and Retired Federal Employees met Jan 2 in the Ring Road Nolin RECC conference room  following the Heartland Service Center re-opening for the New Year. Chapter President Kay Bennett presided over the meeting.
    Guest speaker was Robin Hildesheim, certi-fied senior advisor for Tender Touch Senior Services, Inc. in Elizabeth-town. The membership learned Tender Touch Senior Services is an affordable in-home non-medical care option for senior adults that helps seniors stay independent in their own homes as long as possible.

  • The Zonta Club of Elizabethtown helped serve Christmas lunch to seniors and supporters of Wesley Hilltop House on Dec. 14. The club also donated dish towels and potholders to them. This is a project the club partici-pates in each year.
    The Zonta Club of Elizabethtown will begin the New Year at its monthly meeting Jan. 26 by installing new members and awarding the $500 scholarship to the Amelia Earhart Essay Contest winner. The scholarship is given to a local high school girl preparing for college.

  • I truly love all vegetables, but I just forget about them sometimes. Broccoli is one that’s easy to forget. For years I would regularly steam broccoli and serve it with a little butter or lemon juice. Then I sort of got tired of that. Nowadays, I tend to use broccoli in a salad, and nearly always, it’s one of these two salads featured today.

  • Early in December more than 30 members of the Garden Club of Elizabethtown attended the club’s annual Christmas luncheon/meeting at the Brown-Pusey House.
    The meal was catered by Back Home, and everyone enjoyed the food.
    Ann Kowalkoski read a touching Christmas story, and members shared the camaraderie of the season.
    During the meeting, Joyce Effinger presented a donation from the Garden Club to Twylane Van Lahr, director of the Brown-Pusey House. The Brown-Pusey House is one of many recipients of donations from the Garden Club.
