  • Zombies everywhere

    I’m not sure at what point in our nation’s history zombies became cool. They’ve appeared in B horror films for years.

    Maybe we can blame Michael Jackson for it. Jackson and his zombie friends danced their way to music history in “Thriller.”

    It’s more likely the fault of popular films today with zombie themes or television shows such as “The Walking Dead.”

  • DiCaprio shines but 'J. Edgar' fades

    Audience reactions to a Tuesday night screening of “J. Edgar” starring Leonardo DiCaprio (“Inception”) were mixed. While most agreed the film was well made, they also thought some of the interviews they had seen about the movie were deceptive.

    That morning DiCaprio appeared on “Good Morning America” and implied that although rumors about Hoover’s private life would be explored, the portrayal in the film would be open enough to let the audience reach its own conclusions about those rumors.

  • Rape, theft and drug cases lead October indictments

    After returning more than 50 indictments in September, the Hardin County grand jury returned 43 in October, more than half of which were drug or theft related.

    Leading the list was the case against David B. Dunnivant, a move-in sex offender from Michigan who is accused of forcibly raping an adult female relative.

    Kentucky State Police arrested Dunnivant in August at his Elizabethtown home, charging him with first-degree rape, incest and possession of marijuana. The grand jury returned an additional charge of tampering with a witness.

  • PREP FOOTBALL: So much for the road less traveled (11/10)

    There’s no road less traveled for Mathew Brownell.

    The North Hardin senior running back’s high school journey has taken him across so many paths and different walks of life. It’s an ironic twist on the famous line of a Robert Frost poem.
