    As children, we often wonder about enchanted elements of the forest.

    Or maybe it was just me. Then again, I thought my toys came alive when I wasn’t looking, so “Toy Story” wasn’t such a stretch.

    But in DreamWorks Animation’s “Epic,” the heroine M.K. is transported to a tiny world in the forest not seen by human eyes.

  • As I sat in my living room with the TV on, swallowing supper on a short break from between work duties last week, it struck me how often I scarf down meals.

    It made me realize fully experiencing a meal — at least for me — is a waning experience. By this, I don’t mean I don’t take adequate time to eat, though that is sometimes the case.

  • Sometimes a cook likes to experiment with complicated things in the kitchen. Other times you have worked a long day and come home tired and hungry, looking to make something simple yet great tasting.

    This week’s adventure offers just that type of recipe, Easy Mexican Casserole.

  • As a certified athletic trainer for high school sports, mother of twin boys, wife of a certified athletic trainer for a baseball team and coordinator of sports medicine at an Elizabethtown facility, Carol George gives her scheduling abilities a workout.

    “I don’t fly by the seat of my pants, usually,” George said.

  • As Fort Knox garrison commander, Col. Bruce Jenkins heads seven directorates and he attributes post improvements made during his two-year tenure to a team effort.

    “I’m just the guy who’s been blessed to be a coach of the garrison team,” Jenkins said.

    Garrison partner units and community groups “outside the gates” also contributed to the accomplishment of goals and senior commander priorities, Jenkins said.
