Heroes need a hand sometimes. Civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t go it alone; he had people such as Rosa Parks fighting beside him. In observance of MLK Jr. Day, the Paramount Theatre Centre Monday held a citywide celebration. Had he not been assassinated April 4, 1968, King would’ve been 77 on Sunday. Restrooms weren’t segregated. People of color sat amongst whites in the theater. Attendees were in unison.
Everybody knows the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. But what if there was more to the story than meets the eye? What if the four characters were possible victims, witnesses and suspects to a bigger, more serious crime? The animated movie “Hoodwinked!” takes the simple children’s story to a far more complex, surprising and funny level.

The Anderson University Department of Music recently announced the launching of a Master's degree in Music Education (M.M.E.), the first graduate degree program to be offered by the Department of Music. Since the University’s founding in 1917, music has always played a major part in the life of the campus community. The new program will be geared to elementary, middle school and high school music educators throughout central Indiana.
