  • 14-year-old author creates fantasy world

    Fourteen-year-old Kristen Eliassen became an author out of necessity.

    “I couldn’t find anything else to read,” the Vine Grove resident said, explaining she was in public school at the time and had read most of the books in the library.

    Eliassen’s book, “McKinley’s Power,” was released July 29 through www.createspace.com.

  • Fall movie preview

    As the summer fades into fall, the seasons also change at the movies.

    September and October releases usually includes independent films that would have gotten lost in the summer blockbusters and other films that are snuck in between the summer and holiday film seasons.

    Of those releasing this fall there are a couple I’m keeping my eye on, some festival favorites and a few I’ve wondered why they were even made.

  • Ending my relationship ... with summer

    The end is near.

    No, not that one. The end of summer.

    The earmark, for many, was Labor Day, which each year is kind of like the starting gun for the race to autumn.

    I say bring it on.

    Summer, as I might have mentioned in previous columns, is not my favorite season, especially in years with lots of 90-plus days. Those usually translate into days with heat indices of more than 100, and that’s just wrong.

  • Dash of Class: A look at the letter 'E' — Elderberries and eggplant

    All aboard, we are back on our field trip of fruits and vegetables. As we progress down the lanes of the grocery store, one of the first stops is in the produce section. This week we have arrived at the letter E. The pickings are slim in the fruit category, but elderberry was the first to come to my mind. I remember when I was growing up and my Mom would talk about my grandmother making elderberry jelly and my grandfather making elderberry wine. I am not sure if we could even find elderberries in the produce section. They grew elderberries on their farm.

  • WULF-FM’s signal silenced temporarily

    The hits of Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert and Lady Antebellum are off the air — at least at 94.3 on the FM dial — as WULF officials try to find out what caused its transmission line to burn out.

    The station is in the process of having the problem repaired, he said. Evans hopes the problem will be resolved within the next 48 hours.

  • JHHS to host Day of Service

    A local high school is imparting lessons to its students even on the weekend.

    Agriculture teacher Brandon Davis was inspired by a similar event at a national FFA convention.
    “I’ve always been kind of a community service fan,” Davis said.
