  • Cancer survivors push through relapses, difficulties

    Barb Underwood of Elizabethtown has one main piece of advice after beating four different types of cancer since 1964.

    Get tested.

    Underwood and Bob Hack of Elizabethtown will join their 115 combined years of surviving seven different cancers as ambassadors at this year’s Elizabethtown Relay for Life, which is next weekend.

    Underwood had herself tested when she had a knot on her leg. Seeing her father die of pancreatic cancer and then her mother die of breast cancer only two months earlier had made her wary.

  • Banquet aimed at strengthening mother-daughter connection

    As a mother, Gail Phoenix thinks it’s important for mothers and daughters to communicate and spend time together.

  • Having an entrant in Derby a ‘dream come true’ for Howevalley couple

    Martin Morrow saw his first Kentucky Derby in 1963, aboard the shoulders of his father as a 3-year-old, and his love for horses and racing took off.

    His wife, Beth, grew up up on a Nelson County farm and spent hours as a child riding her Appaloosa Arabian horse, Scout.

    Saturday, the Howevalley couple travels to Churchill Downs hoping for something that seemed impossible just months ago: to become owners of a Kentucky Derby champion.

  • Summer movie preview

    The summer movie season starts Friday with the crash of Thor’s hammer.

    Typically Hollywood’s hit movie season begins in May and ends in August, picking back up again around November.

    There wasn’t too much to choose from to review this week. Disney’s tween film “Prom” would have just given me a headache and I wasn’t in the mood for more than two hours worth of cars and girls that looked like they stepped out of a 1980s hair band video, so I skipped “The Fast Five.” Let’s face it, that’s a guy movie.

    So I choose the shortest film that was released so that my torture from poor filmmaking would be short. And it was torture.
