  • Summer job is part of college plan for EHS student

    When Elizabethtown High School student Kimberly Morris decided to look for a summer job, she began sending out resumes.

    One of the places she sent a resume to was Stone Hearth Restaurant. Her mom had heard they were hiring, Morris said.

    “I had actually applied to literally 10 other places and none of them called me back,” Morris said.

    When Morris called the restaurant to see if someone there would be interested in reviewing her resume, she snagged an interview. It was less an interview, she said, than an orientation.

  • 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.
