  • Area man visits Joplin, helps those in need

    Joel Hatfield’s first impression Monday as he drove into Joplin, Mo., a place he called home for nine years, was that the streets he used to drive — and the homes and businesses that once were familiar — now are scattered everywhere.

    Trees stand snapped, two-level homes are flattened and vehicles sit after being tossed around like rag dolls.

  • Dash of Class: Cherry cheese tarts and other great summer recipes

    This month I haven’t had as many requests for recipes as usual, but Debbie Williams did ask that I reprint my recipe for small cheesecakes. May has been grill out month, and I have a great recipe for grilled vegetables. We love to do our vegetables that way.

    I know we are all looking for a way to cut calories and make the food we eat healthier. The pork tenderloin recipe helps you burn calories. Because pork is chewier than other meat cuts, you actually burn more calories while you chew. Hey, every bit helps. That is exactly what the magazine article said.

  • Arghhh...the pirates are back.

    Jack Sparrow, sorry, Captain Jack Sparrow, is back pirating the Caribbean for the fourth time in Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” This time the trip is a bit different.

    There are only three major returning characters from the first three films, and a monkey. Sparrow’s beloved Black Pearl is also missing from this adventure.

  • Warning: Read at your own risk, a reality of aging may follow

    I was living my life, oblivious to a reality I didn’t want to face. I went through daily life happily in the dark about a milestone that was happening without my knowledge.

    This was until this season’s “Dancing with the Stars” and my friend Madge posted a fact I would have rather not known as her Facebook status.

    In November, Ralph Macchio turns 50. What? It can’t be.

    Then the reality set in. It was undeniable. The people in the posters lining my walls in the 1980s are now getting old.

  • Friends of Nolin Lake present summer lineup

    Heavy rains might have delayed many of this spring’s outdoor activities, but the Friends of Nolin soon will kick off a season of family-friendly events and virtually every weekend all summer long. The lineup includes several inaugural events along with past crowd favorites.

    The first-time Houseboat Hop on June 11 will feature Hardcase Band from Bowling Green jammin’ out the hits from atop a houseboat in the middle of the lake. The music is schedule from 7 to 9 p.m. CDT.

  • My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Keep clippings organized with your own cookbook

    I had an unusual call a couple of months ago. Crystal Embry of Upton called and said she wanted to learn how to cook. I was flummoxed. I didn’t know what to say. I never thought about learning how to cook, and I was really surprised someone would call me and tell me they wanted to learn how to cook. I don’t think of myself as a very good cook. I am, however, a great connoisseur of food. I love it, I’m fascinated by it and when I find a good recipe, I’m ecstatic.

  • 'Oklahoma!' sweeps into the Plum Alley Theater

    Romance, statehood and the right to put up fences all are a part of the timeless Broadway musical “Oklahoma!” on stage at the Plum Alley Theater June 2 through 12.

    “Oklahoma!” was the first collaboration of Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein, Hardin County Playhouse Director Bo Cecil said.

  • Foreigner set to rock Elizabethtown

    With upcoming concert tour stops everywhere from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Dublin, Ireland, each member of the band Foreigner at some point is likely to be a “Long, Long Way from Home.”

    On Friday, audiences probably will hear the aforementioned ’70s hit when Foreigner performs in concert at Freeman Lake Park in Elizabethtown.

    “I think they’re going to see and hear all the classics,” lead vocalist Kelly Hansen said.

  • E'town's The Headstones open for Foreigner

    The Headstones, opening for Foreigner, were rocking long before Foreigner ever performed on stage.

    In the mid 1960s, while students at Elizabethtown High School, the Headstones first got the bug for music. They were a six-man band who played at colleges and placed second in a 1967 WAKY Band Battle at the Rod-n-Custom Car Show. The band split up, going different directions and some members moved out of town.
