Schoepf’s Bar-B-Que Summer Concert Series: Fun, food, music all season
BELTON - When I first moved back to Texas in 2011, I really wasn’t much into country music – but don’t judge me too harshly just yet. While it still isn’t my favorite genre, I’ve grown to appreciate it a little more, and part of the reason for that is the summer concert series at Schoepf’s Bar-B-Que every year.

That's Entertainment
‘Transformers: Age of Extinction,’ just wait for DVD
It has been a few weeks since I last wrote the entertainment column, and it saddens me to say that after watching “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” not all the things I have to say about the movie are happy and bubbly. As a child, I used to watch the “Transformers” cartoon on the Sci-Fi channel every morning while waiting for the bus to pick me up for school, so it hurts me to see something from my childhood get mutilated on the big screen. I went into the movie with an open mind knowing that some things would not be the same as my beloved childhood “Transformers” cartoon. The first thing I have to say is this: Michael Bay, please quit killing my childhood. I am not a “Transformers” purist, but in a time when we have the ability to do some amazing things with graphics, can we please sta...

Austin The 1968 Exhibit The Bullock Texas State History Museum will host “The 1968 Exhibit” now-Sept. 1. The exhibit focuses on social forces that swirled through the turbulent 1960s and crested in 1968, a year that shaped the rest of the 20th century. “The 1968 Exhibit” will bring to life this pivotal American year through photographs, artifacts, vintage pop culture items and interactives organized in 7,000 square feet of exhibit space in the Bullock Museum’s Herzstein Hall. Presented chronologically by the months of the year, the exhibit experience begins in January 1968 with a Huey helicopter that has “landed” in a circa-1968 American living room. It continues by highlighting significant events each month, including the peak of the Vietnam War, riots and demonstrations across the co...
