  • Applying for college takes some preparation. Students must follow deadlines and have spent their high school careers building experiences that can translate to a well-rounded resume that will stand out to admissions officers.

    Timeliness is an important aspect of the admissions process, said Tanya Corder, a senior counselor for John Hardin High School. Corder tells students it is best to apply as early as possible, because it allows them to get responses sooner, consider financial aid options, apply for housing and take part in student orientation.

  • “The Adventures of Tintin” is the first collaboration between Hollywood powerhouses Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson. It’s also Spielberg’s first movie using the filmmaking toy of motion capture special effects and digital filming.

    Spielberg, who directed the film, has had the rights to “Tintin” since the 1980s after someone told him “Raiders of the Lost Ark” reminded them of the book series featuring Tintin written and illustrated by Hergé.

  • A new year means resolutions for many, but I’ve pretty much abandoned that idea.

    That doesn’t mean I don’t have room for improvement in many areas of my life. Everyone has room for improvement, right?

    But, as fond as I am of lists, the New Year’s resolution list is one I’ve just never gotten on board with.

    It really doesn’t make sense, though, because, as my significant other, Rebecca Ricks, is fond of pointing out, I tend to make lists for everything.

  • The Radcliff Woman's Club held its Dec. 12 meeting amidst the decorated trees at Colvin Community Center. After a catered dinner, Kyu Reisch added to the holiday atmosphere by playing  “O Holy Night” on her harmonica.

  • In an effort to continue safety education among youth in the community, the Hardin County Cooperative Extension Service partnered with the Progressive Agriculture Foundation to host its third annual “Safety Day” program in October.
