DECATUR, Ala. (AP) — For months, Tim Tucker sidled up to the piano and repeatedly played the first line of what would become a stirring duet. Over and over again the notes of the melody flowed off...
FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) — Officials in a western Arkansas city say residents can finally kick off their Sunday shoes.
Fort Smith city directors recently repealed a 1953 ordinance that essentially outlawed public dancing on Sundays. Locals who knew about the law called it the "Footloose" ordinance, nicknamed for the 1984 movie starring Kevin Bacon about a town that banned dancing and rock music.
NEW YORK (AP) — You could easily call Friday "National Actors Releasing Albums Day": Kevin Bacon, Scarlett Johansson and Ezra Miller are among the famous faces dropping new music.
But releasing music for those well-known for their roles in movies haven't always been accepting or a breeze.
Have you ever seen the moon?
You will likely answer that you have, many times. But a new short video by filmmakers Wylie Overstreet and Alex Gorosh may have you reconsidering whether you've ever actually seen it at all.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Seven Democrats, 10 Republicans and a Green Party candidate are vying for the open 12th congressional district seat in Ohio. Two separate primaries will be on May ballots. One is for the remainder of the unexpired term of Republican U.S. Rep. Pat Tiberi, who left Congress in January. The second is for the full two-year term beginning in January. Here's a list of the candidates, listed alphabetically by party:
Kevin Bacon will star in and produce the new supernatural thriller 'You Should Have Left'.
The 59-year-old 'Footloose' star is teaming up with David Koepp and Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions to adapt the 2017 book of the same name by German author Daniel Kehlmann, The Hollywood Reporter say.
Koepp has adapted the book and is set to helm the new movie which is being slated to start production this year.
LOS ANGELES Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is yesteryears party game. The actor with the most impressive, wide-reaching connections these days, at least in the TV universe, may be Alexandria native and Gustavus Adolphus College graduate Peter Krause.
‘Flatliners’ screenwriter Peter Filardi excited to see remake
In the 1990 sci-fi/horror film "Flatliners," five medical school students — fascinated by so-called "near-death" experiences — take turns inducing clinical death in one another. After brief tastes of the afterlife, each is brought back via emergency room/code blue procedures. But the results are disturbingly compelling. After the first volunteer is dead for one minute, the next goes for two — and on and on, in increasingly protracted lengths.
You all know the Kevin Bacon game. Try to find a connection between Kevin Bacon and any actor in less than six moves. Turns out that 98 percent of all the 2.3 million people who have acted or directed in Hollywood can be connected to Bacon in four moves or less. If that sounds astounding, Samuel L. Jackson is even closer to the center of Hollywood. By the way, you can find out more than you ever wanted to know on this topic at the website, Oracle of Bacon. I wonder how many links it takes to connect Kevin Bacon to Napoleon Dynamite star, Jon Heder?
State senators say anti-hazing law may be too narrow
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio state senators are reviewing the state's anti-hazing statute amid concerns the law needs to be broadened.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Kevin Bacon, a Minerva Park Republican, tells the Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/2rEYfx9 ) he wants to revisit language that appears to restrict hazing prosecutions to the time of initiation into an organization. He says hazing doesn't occur only when someone joins a group.
Kevin Bacon went undercover as a high school student to prepare for 'Footloose'.
The actor was 23 when he landed the role of 17-year-old Ren McCormack, a Chicago teenager who moves to a small town, and he was so worried about pulling off a realistic performance in the 1984 movie that he went back to high school.

Kevin Bacon loves Baconfest invite, is sorry he can’t attend
BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) — The town has struck out in its attempt to bring home the bacon — Kevin Bacon, that is.
Brattleboro wanted the actor to visit for its third annual Baconfest, a celebration of all things related to the fatty cured pork strips.
But he tweeted his regrets on Monday, saying in a video that he won't be able to make it to Baconfest because he's filming in Vancouver. He said he appreciated the "hilarious effort" that went into trying to get him there.
Dueling proposals would regulate Ohio ‘submeter’ companies
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Dueling proposals to regulate companies that serve as intermediaries between utilities and certain apartment complexes and condominiums are percolating at the Ohio Statehouse.
Ohio Sen. Kevin Bacon and Rep. Mike Duffey, a Worthington Republican, both recently introduced bills regarding submeter companies, The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/2bpjvfa) reported.
The movie "Footloose" came out in 1984: an appropriate year for its somewhat Orwellian premise, in which authoritarian figures in a small town officially ban popular music and dancing (although this one had notably more toe-tapping). Now the musical based on the movie is playing at the SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre.
The exact location of the small town goes unspecified in the movie and the stage show, but Utah locals will remember that the Kevin Bacon version was filmed in...
