NEW CASTLE —
Who is looking forward to Friday, March 8?
March 8 is the opening day for "Oz the Great and Powerful," one of the most anticipated film releases of this year.
I am a little nervous to see the movie since I am a huge "Wizard of Oz" fan. I don't want to be disappointed.
But I have to say, I felt the same way when I headed to the theatre a few years ago to see a production of "Wicked," and I was pleasantly surprised. I'm hoping this experience will be the same.
In case you haven't heard much about "Oz the Great and Powerful," allow me to fill you in. The movie stars James Franco (of “Spider-Man” fame). Franco plays Oscar Diggs, a magician who finds himself in the fantasy Land of Oz. He is immediately considered by many to be a wizard, but three witches — Glinda, Theodora, and Evanora — aren't so sure.
As Oscar feels compelled to help the people of Oz solve the land's problems, he must find out who is on his side. Thus, he sets out on a journey to become the one and only Wizard of Oz!
The film is produced by Walt Disney Studios.

The scenery and graphics look just amazing to me!
Are you planning to see the film?

Gary Church: A little trimmer is just the right fit for someone my age
There are definite signs in my life that show I'm really starting to age. I can't believe that I just bought a battery powered trimmer/edger. The gas trimmer I have now is 25 years old and very powerful.

Josh Drespling: Thank you, Mom. I’ve never said this before but ...
I'm a terrible son. I’ll can freely admit my shortcomings. Well, maybe not as awful as some. I've never been in prison or killed anyone (though I may have thought about it). I’ve never been a drug addict or a drunk. I remember most of the holidays, birthdays and celebrations and I'm capable of supporting myself and my family.

I recently received a friend request on Facebook from a woman named Robin. I wasn’t familiar with this person. Being a little skeptical, I wrote back and wanted to know why she picked me, when she didn't know me.

What lessons did you NOT learn in the classroom? Several weeks ago, I found myself stumbling around outside of my comfort zone. I'd gone to a college campus to begin working on a new degree and new direction for my life. And boy did I feel like a square peg.
