  • The Kentucky Cattlemen’s Foundation recently announced the Animal Refuge Center will receive $500 from the Animal Shelter Assistance program.

    The Animal Shelter Assistance program was funded for the second year from a donation made by Boyle County cattle farmer Jim Gage. Gage realizes the importance of helping your local animal shelters and knows that both farmers and shelters are in the business of taking care of animals. “I like donating to local animal shelters because I can see the animals and know who my donation is helping,” said Gage.

The program began in the basement of the College Heights United Methodist Church on July 17, 2006, and served two patrons. Meals were offered Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Warm Blessings, now at 609 E. Dixie Ave., where the program has operated since Dec. 14, 2009, serves meals frequently to more than 50 individuals at 5:30 p.m. weeknights.

  • Growing up in the action-heavy era of the 1980s and 1990s, it’s hard to picture how a remake of “Total Recall” would work without Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Sure, Schwarzenegger isn’t the greatest actor in the world, but he was a larger-than-life personality in that film.

    The current remake with Colin Farrell (“Fright Night”) might have kept a few visuals and references to the original film but felt less than blockbuster.
