There are good people out there To the editor: Today's acts of kindnesses validated my belief that the good still outweighs the bad. After filling my car at a local gas station, I headed home. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to me, I'd left my wall ...

Christmas trees for sale

By JAMES SHERIDAN For The Recorder As promised, this is the story given to me by Howard Bradt. I had been unable to confirm the details but Howard Bradt never lied to me. He had premature gray hair and was taken from us far too soon. He was re ...

AC/DC, which has enjoyed four decades of success, will release "Rock o ...

Music Reviews

AC/DC "Rock or Bust" (Columbia Records) In 1980, AC/DC's very existence was at stake: singer Bon Scott died just as the band was starting to get big. They used the uncertainty and grief to dig down deep, and the result was one of the greatest albums in rock history, "Back In Black." In 2014, AC/DC is once again in turmoil: founding rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young had to leave the band due to dementia, and drummer Phil Rudd recently saw charges th ...

'Horrible Bosses 2' is a bunch of cameos in pretty bad movie

By JAKE COYLE The Associated Press The characters of the modern workplace comedy, like the rest of us, don't know how to make a living anymore. Having haplessly tried to murder their bosses in the first "Horrible Bosses," Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis return in "Horrible Bosses 2" as hopeful inventors.

Parodying his own work and documentary films' obsession with the flightless birds, the German filmmaker gives an auspiciously clever start to a movie targeted toward the under 10 set. It's a little wink to the adults in the audience right at the front. But d ...
