    THURSDAY

  • Don’t believe outrageous claims. Coupon circulars are full of weird products such as painted plates, knitted slippers, wildlife figures and “must-have” plants. This time of the year these circulars prey on our anticipation of spring. Giant tomatoes, one tree with five different fruits, and a tree that grows 3 feet in a week share space with $1 off coupons. Don’t believe the sensational claims of the plants that scam the most people: the giant tomato tree, the royal paulownia, the 5-in-1 fruit tree and bargain bulbs for dirt cheap.

  • It may not feel like it, but spring is right around the corner. That means daffodils will be blooming and robins will be chirping. It’s also the time for the annual Taste of Bardstown, the tasting that raises funds for Hospice of Nelson County and the Bardstown-Nelson County Hospitality Association. This year’s tasting is set for March 24. Once again, we could use basket donations from the community to help raise funds for terminally ill Hospice patients.

  • Some memos will be marked [Unpreviewed]. This means that I have not seen the film. Any information about the film content is taken from press releases, Web sites and other sources. The “Family Rating” is mainly taken from the Web site filmratings.com.

  • Occasional coincidence is acceptable in films. “Vantage Point” is an exciting depiction of the assassination of an American President in a Spanish city. Unfortunately, the whole film is not greater than its overused plot devices.
