  • Two injured in single-car wreck

    A Rineyville woman and Vine Grove teen were airlifted to Louisville after sustaining injuries in a single-car, roll-over wreck at the 7000 block of Rineyville Road on Sunday night.

    Dorothy J. Casey, 44, was driving the 13-year-old boy to his Flaherty Road home, said Greg Lowe, spokesman for the Hardin County Sheriff’s Office. The red 1994 Honda Civic was traveling westbound on Rineyville Road when it went off the right shoulder.

    Casey overcorrected, crossed into the eastbound lane and went into a ditch, causing the car to overturn several times, Lowe said.

  • Looking for personal magic thanks to a movie moment

    It’s been quite a summer for movies: I was hijacked to Bangkok by "Hangover II," thankful for the bad bosses I haven’t had in "Horrible Bosses," reminded that women can be just as flat-out stupid-crazy as men in "Bridesmaids" and glad I’m not anyone but me in "The Changeup."

    But my favorite film of the summer is one that catapulted me back in time to another era, a golden age.

  • Student enjoys job environment of movies, music

    Finding a summer job really comes down to one thing for many high school students: money.
    That was the reason cited by 17-year-old Zach Meredith.
    The Elizabethtown High School senior already is driving and needs to be able to pay for gas. He soon will be paying for automobile insurance, too.
    That led him to apply and ultimately snag a summer job at f.y.e. in Towne Mall. The store sells movies, music and entertainment-related products.

  • The motormouth education of Abraham Lincoln

    Parents who last week sent kids back to school with backpacks full of recent purchases may appreciate the simplicity of young Abraham Lincoln’s supply list.

    This is a boy who once scrounged up two pieces of paper and sewed them into a notebook so he could do his math problems.

    In fact, while attending a one-room school with a dirt floor near Hodgenville, he didn’t even need to jot things down. He blabbed them.
    He and older sister Sarah attended what was called a “blab school.”
