'If I Stay'
This is one of the 16 movies Chloe Grace Mortz has appeared in the last two and a half years and she has two more completed and one in production. Maybe she is trying to get as much done as possible before entering college.

This film could possibly be the brightest film of those done earlier. In this film, “If I Stay” she is Tia Hall, a precocious cello playing high school student. Her maturity level is higher than her rock and roll parents.

'When the Game Stands Tall'
‘When the Game Stands Tall’ is an inspired movie based on a true story. It is the remarkable journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur. He took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151 game winning streak. That streak shattered all records for any American sport.

It all happened in 1992 to 2003 in Concord, Calif. The story is adapted from a book by the same name written by Neil Hayes.

General Sherman brings the Civil War back to Wayne County
Bill Peshner as General Sherman
Around nine times a year, special education teacher Bill Peshner, originally from Milwaukee, Wis., morphs into Union General William Tecumseh Sherman. It’s a role that fits him.

On Fri., Sept. 12 at 6 p.m., General Sherman will greet guests for dinner at the Inn of the Six-Toed Cat in Allerton. Those wishing to meet him may call 641-873-4900 for reservations. Earlier that day, at noon, Civil War re-enactors can set up camp on the battlefield of the Corydon Lake Park, where there will be water, outhouses, and hay for soldiers’ horses.

'Into the Storm'
Eighteen years ago Warner Brothers kicked off the summer of '96 with a special effects driven film called ‘Twister.’ That movie was very popular at the time and sold a lot of tickets, especially in the Midwest.

This film is really just ‘Twister’ revisited. ‘Into the Storm’ is PG-13 with new re-imagined special effects. If you thought the '96 effects were good (remember the flying cow?) these are 100 percent better.

About the only way to wrap a story around a tornado is to include those that study and love them. Storm chasers attempt to get as close as possible to a cloud. They head to small town Oklahoma.
