  • Once again I was totally blessed at the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration sponsored by The Concerned Parents. Rev. Bruce Shaw brought a thought-provoking and challenging message. Though I had this article written, his message inspired me so that I decided to change the title. Hence, I would like to add one more subject to the things we cannot afford to do. We cannot afford to linger any longer.

  • This year’s Trim Down, Bardstown! weight-loss drive will be held at a new location: our new Flaget Immediate Care Clinic on KY 245, across from Buzick Lumber.

His most recent book, “In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto,” is already on the New York Times’ Best Seller List.

  • If I interpret the opening correctly, “Cloverfield” is the code name given to the examination of what happened in Manhattan on a spring day in an unmentioned year. The movie is certainly not about a bucolic roll in a verdant pasture where British authors wrote their novels. But what is it about?

  • 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.
