Spring is here. . .and gone. . .and here and gone again. It's been a tough winter for everybody, but with Easter on the horizon, it's time to come out of hibernation and hop on down to downtown Whiting for a day full of Easter fun this Saturday.

For the last couple of weeks, the film industry has been in the spotlight with the Golden Globes, People's Choice, Screen Actors Guild and the Film Critics Award shows on TV, and I've sat through all of them. Naturally, I am looking forward to the Academy Awards (on March 2) as well.
