  • Something has been going bump in the night in my home. Both my significant other, Rebecca Ricks, and I have experienced it.

    It started some weeks ago, but the activity has increased.

    Could this be paranormal and because of the Halloween season?

    Nah. It’s our Pomeranian.

    It is in part because our newest family member, a black Pomeranian puppy named Zorro that wouldn’t weigh 2 pounds soaking wet. He’s not going bump in the night, but he does play a role.

  • Rockabilly music will fill the Historic State Theater in Elizabethtown when it hosts a concert Saturday by a local group.

  • The children’s film industry is huge. In fact, of the 20 top-grossing films of 2012, six were animated, earning a total of around $2 billion.
