Today's Features

  • Vine Grove Optimist Park two-steps into action Saturday when it offers a free country music concert.

    Otter Creek Express, a country band featuring Jack Whelan, performs from 5 to 8 p.m. at the park. Whelan also is master of ceremonies.

    Also making up Otter Creek Express are Randall Brown, lead guitarist; James Mote, bassist; Ronnie Thomas, drummer; and Joe Layman, vocalist and guitarist.

    Though donations are appreciated, the concert is free.

  • Country music singer Mark Chesnutt will headline an intimate, acoustic show at the Historic State Theater, and some local fans promise country charm and good music on his behalf.

    Chesnutt has been a part of the country music scene for more than 20 years and has had many number one hits. He won the 1993 CMA Horizon Award, which is given to newer artists in country music.

  • Mother’s Day has come and gone, but moms still will take center stage and a nonprofit group will benefit when the Historic State Theater hosts the play “MOMologues” on Sunday.

    “MOMolgues” is an original comedy directed by Lisa Holmes, SpringHaven Domestic Violence Program executive director. The one-time performance is at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available only at the door the day of the performance.

    Proceeds benefit SpringHaven.

  • “Something Borrowed” is the kind of movie that’s about more than just one relationship. It’s a romantic comedy but at the same time a dramatic look at many interpersonal relationships.

  • Not every day is golden. Some days start out as tarnished copper and are — as if manipulated by an exceptionally-skilled alchemist — magically transformed into something brighter and much more treasured.

    That was the case one particular day last week.

    The day wasn’t particularly bad; it wasn’t like I’d rank it in the top 10 worst days, or even the top 100, or even the top 1,000 or ... well, you get the idea. That’s why it got the classification of tarnished copper rather than rusty tin.

  • Witches, wizards and barbarians are on the menu at the Doe Run Inn in Brandenburg as production for a six-part live-action web series continues.

    “Brothers Barbarian” is being shot at the Brandenburg inn and includes in its cast two well-known fantasy and science fiction artists.

    Larry Elmore, a fantasy artist known, in part, for his work for Dungeons & Dragons gaming material, will portray a crazy old wizard. New York Times best-selling fantasy author Margret Weis, known for her Dragonlance series, plays a witch.

  • “The Incredible Edible Egg.” Now, how many of you are humming that little tune made so popular by the American Egg Board on televisions across the United States several years ago?

  • Today is the deadline to sign up for the 2011 Heartland Music Festival United Way of Central Kentucky Lip Sync contest. Organizers extended the deadline to line up more entries.

    “Anyone can join the lip sync (contest),” said organizer Jennifer Meyers, noting businesses, schools, civic groups, churches and any group of friends are welcome to enter. All entries must include two to 25 people.

  • The Military Order of the World Wars, as a service organization, concentrates a good deal of its efforts to the recognition and development of our youth and their patriotic education. MOWW continued to recognize cadet outstanding achievement at the John Hardin and Central Hardin High Schools at their Army JROTC Awards Ceremonies on April 20 and 21.

  • Members of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity recently participated in the March of Dimes annual walk to raise money for the organization.
