Today's Features

  • There wasn’t too much to choose from to review this week. Disney’s tween film “Prom” would have just given me a headache and I wasn’t in the mood for more than two hours worth of cars and girls that looked like they stepped out of a 1980s hair band video, so I skipped “The Fast Five.” Let’s face it, that’s a guy movie.

    So I choose the shortest film that was released so that my torture from poor filmmaking would be short. And it was torture.

  • Everybody’s going to be so happy today because I’ve got another Polly Shaw recipe. You wouldn’t believe how many calls I get, asking about Polly, wanting more Polly recipes and even suggesting that Polly publish a cookbook.

  • Vinyl records were the inspiration for the name of Elizabethtown rock group Vinal (pronounced the same as its namesake), but the group has not lasted 12 years on their name alone.

    “I believe to succeed as a band, in any genre, the members have to have great chemistry, and as with any relationship, communication is key,” Nick Glass, vocalist and guitarist, said.

    Glass moved to Elizabethtown in 1996 and had joined The Heartland Song Writer’s Association, playing music at the now defunct Piccassos.

  • Vacation typically means different things to different people.

    At least once a year to my girlfriend, Rebecca Ricks, and me, it means a couple of days and nights camping and fishing at Land-Between-the-Lakes. This year was no exception.

    That’s what we had in mind, anyway.

    But this year Mother Nature decided to be particularly disagreeable.
    Yep. My vacation fell during last week’s bout of severe weather.

  • Saturday is the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby, which many sports enthusiasts refer to it as “the greatest two minutes in sports.” The race that began in 1875 is 1.25 miles long and is for 3-year-olds. But for as much history and tradition there is about the horses and Churchill Downs, there is much tradition about the food and drinks served at the race track on the first Saturday of May.

  • The April meeting of the Fort Knox Potted Few Garden Club recently met at the home of Marilyn Ardisson.  Linda Novak was co-host, and they provided a selection of brunch goodies. 
    The program was a look into the building of rustic and beautiful birdhouses.  Melvin Loveday shared his knowledge and artwork with the members.

  • Guest speaker at a recent Radcliff Rotary was the newly appointed Hardin Memorial Hospital President and CEO Dennis Johnson. Johnson has 21 years of experience with the Baptist Health Care System, and is a fellow Rotarian from the La Grange club.  He related to the club the history of HMH from a small country hospital to a major regional medical facility. Johnson is pictured with club president Neil Atcher, center, and club program master Dr. Bill Perks, right.

  • Hardin County Historical Society held its April meeting at the State Theater April 25.  Despite the rain, the dinner and program was well attended.
    The program was “The Perryville campaign”' by Christopher Kolakowski, author of “The Civil War at Perryville: Battling for the Bluegrass State” and “This Army Does Not Retreat: The Battles of Stones River and Tullahoma,” concerning battles in Tennessee in 1862 and 1863.  He has another book in the works and will return to the HCHS.

  • Although this information was featured in our district’s recent insert to The News-Enterprise (The Panther Edition), the insert is distributed only to a portion of the readers in the greater community. As a result, I’ve elected to share this information so the entire community will have access.

  • Sunday is Mother’s Day, an opportunity to take time to let moms know how much they are appreciated. Many of the women featured in Wednesday’s Woman speak very highly of their moms, often calling them mentors or giving them some credit for their success.

    In honor of Mother’s Day, some of these women shared the reasons why their moms are so important in their lives — the woman behind the woman, so to speak.
