  • On-campus housing: A good step for college freshmen

    While academics rightly take the forefront in discussion of colleges, where the student will live once on campus is an important aspect in applying for college.

    Most colleges require students to live on campus for some period of time, but even if they don’t, it’s a recommended way of blending into college life.

    Myra Lewis, a senior counselor at Central Hardin High School, encourages students to live on campus the first year.

  • Students should shine in college applications

    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.

  • Income tax deduction time limit draws near

    For some area residents, the end of the calendar year means making sure income tax deductions are in line.

    Otherwise, they won’t benefit fully from charitable contributions and other qualifying deductions until 2013.

    Krystal Williams, manager of Accounting and Tax Professionals in Elizabethtown, said business gets hectic in December with people trying to get in last-minute deductions.

    Many regular clients make such arrangements near the end of the calendar year, especially deductions for money given to charity, she said.

  • 'Great snakes!' Spielberg has a new toy — motion capture

    “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.

  • Listing the reasons for lists

    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.
