  • Annoying and possibly dangerous mosquitos and ticks are out in force. To help take back your yard, practice the five Ts, according to Mosquito Squad, an exterminating company specializing in treating for mosquitoes and ticks.

     

    1. Tip. Dump all standing water to eliminate mosquito threats, including that underneath and around downspouts, in plant saucers and dog bowls. Mosquitoes need standing water, and not much of it, to breed.

  • As an attorney practicing domestic and criminal law, Phyllis Lonneman sees many a case that is no laughing matter.

    As Choco-lotte the clown, laughing and smiles come with the territory.

    Lonneman, who graduated from clown college about three years ago, said clowning is her escape from the rigors of court, and it is a rewarding activity for her.

    So occasionally she dons makeup and becomes Choco-lotte the clown.

    “I’m a big chocolate fanatic,” Lonneman said.

    A taste of the Nashville music scene, hotrods and motorcycles are all a part of local band 3GC.

    Wade Perry and Jason Dowell, of Elizabethtown, rode their motorcycles to Nashville in the fall of 2009. They walked down the sidewalk on lower Broadway and heard a band that stood out from the others at Layla’s Bluegrass Inn.

    Dowell said they had to go in and listen. The band was Lane Kristian and the Jakehead Mob.

  • With Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t help but think about my dad.

    They (whoever “they” are) say you’re supposed to keep learning as you get older. That is so true when it comes to learning about my father.

  • For those of you with children of all ages, all of a sudden your children are free from school and now it is time to think of some activities that are not so boring. Of course, they can readily think of other things to fill their time, like watching television, playing video games, anything to keep from playing outdoors in the heat and humidity.

  • Stephen Van Zant might be an attorney practicing law in Elizabethtown, but the Oldham County resident had a story to tell that required him to put on another hat.

    The attorney is now an author, with his young adult novel, “Far From Good,” recently published by WinePress Publishing.

  • Elizabethtown resident Richie Gergely is a hip-hop, rap and soul artist.

    But he prefers to emphasize the soul element to his music unlike typical hip-hop and rap subjects.

    “It doesn’t have to be about drugs and guns and violence,” he said.

    Still, Gergely’s music includes explicit language, and some of it, he said, is the “hardcore stuff.”

    Recording under the name Kentucky Reignman, Gergely uses beats provided by producers from around the globe, including Fargo, N.D., Italy and the United Kingdom, he said.

  • Picnics can be a bucket of chicken on a blanket under a shade tree or an elaborate gathering with decorations and a fancy feast.

    With the Fourth of July just around the corner, picnic season is in full swing. The scope of the event is all up to you but there are some things to think about when planning the perfect picnic.

    Part of a successful picnic is the presentation and Michele Redmond, buyer and artistic director for The Red Brick Cottage in Radcliff, suggested some small things that can make a great presentation.
