    Bowling over the competition

    It is a rivalry between strangers, couples, siblings, and friends.

However seriously or silly the players chose to spend last Saturday afternoon, they were all united in their attempt to test their brain power at the fourth annual College Bowl.

    Short Take: The Mothman Prophesies

    The two best PR things going for The Mothman Prophecies are 1) the film is based on true events and 2) no one really knows what it’s about.

    A greater meaning

    “Don’t forget to be nice to strangers, for some who have done this, have entertained angels without realizing it.” Hebrews 13:2 I don’t think anyone can pinpoint the reasons that certain people come into our lives at particular times.

    All you need is love

    “I do not like Green Eggs and Ham. I do not like them, Sam I am.” From that popular Dr. Seuss line comes the title to the newest heartbreaker I Am Sam. The film from writer/director Jessie Nelson tackles many sensitive subjects and succeeds (most of the time) at walking that fine line between sappy and sincere.
