  • A local pastor helped pen “Sacred Places of Kentucky,” a coffee table book, and is part of a book signing Sunday.

    From 2 to 4 p.m., the Rev. Roger Jasper, pastor of Living Faith Baptist Fellowship, signs copies of the book at the church, at 207 Corporate Drive in Elizabethtown. Co-author Amanda Harvey and photographers Wes and Stacy Battoclette also are signing books.

    The book contains 156 pages including photos of Kentucky’s inspirational sacred places, from large cathedrals to small country churches.

  • Take a classic Christmas story, add allusions to “The Wizard of Oz,” stir in what amounts to a ghostly Greek chorus and you’ll have an idea of what to expect from Hardin County Playhouse’s latest production, “A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas.”

    “I wanted to provide a spectacle,” HCP artistic director Bo Cecil said.

    “A Christmas Carol: A Ghost Story of Christmas” is a version of the perennially favorite story with bleaker elements and more ghosts.

  • One of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season is to watch Christmas movies.

    A basket full of them sits by my television all season long. Snoopy, the Griswolds, Santa, various reindeer, George Bailey, some wise men and a Grinch all are included.

    But one Christmas movie has trumped all others lately — mainly because it’s full of Christmas cheer, which I hear comes from singing loudly for all to hear.

  • To follow up director Garry Marshall’s flop “Valentine’s Day,” he now adds another holiday titled film to his resume in “New Year’s Eve.”

    Half of Hollywood seems to have showed up for this one as a variety of story lines weave together to celebrate New Year’s Eve.

    The concept of a multi-story film with multiple celebrities is not new. The British comedy “Love Actually” set the bar high for this kind of movie and other films often slip under that bar.

  • When The News-Enterprise food columnist Nora Sweat decided to compile a cookbook a couple years ago, she decided to call it “Mama & Me.”

    Sweat’s father died in 1972 and as she got older, she and her mother became closer.

    “We became more like sisters rather than mother and daughter,” Sweat said.

  • William “Anthony” and Alexis Ann Wathen will celebrate their 40th anniversary at noon, Dec. 10, 2011, at St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church in Flaherty by renewing their vows.
