    Central Kentucky Community Theatre is a local treasure

    I am a professional theatre director and professor of theatre at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo, Mich. On Sunday, June 10, I attended the final performance of Hello, Dolly! at the Central Kentucky Community Theatre in Springfield.

  • Bye-Bye, Enterprise

    By Nick Schrager

    I hate to say it, but it's time to go... it was a blast while it lasted.

  • 40-foot drop forges friendships

    By Paige Wilson

    I felt another plump droplet of sweat race down the side of my face and plummet into the abyss below me, wishing I could escape this situation with the same effortless motion - but perhaps not with the same end result.

    I was buckled into a strappy harness, helmeted and connected to a lean metal cable by foreign ropes and knots. Somehow I was expected to leap across a gap of open air - 40 feet above the unforgiving Alabama turf - relying on these contraptions as my safeguards against painful consequences.

  • Girls who rock

    Mobile, Ala., got another sample of Kentucky pride last week when a Marion County contingent took the city by storm in support of Paige Wilson who competed in the Distinguished Young Woman competition.

    But, the folks in Mobile should be getting used to Kentuckians by now. After all, last year it seemed as if half the state traveled there to root for Marion County's own Christine Mattingly in the 2011 national program.

    Both young women have represented our state and our county well.

  • Every second counts

    What did you do with your leap second?

    You probably didn't notice but this past weekend was one second longer than usual. On Saturday, the International Atomic Time was adjusted to compensate for gradual changes in the Earth's rotation.

    The most recent leap second before Saturday occurred on New Year's Eve on 2008.
