Kenny Rogers brings his Christmas show with Linda Davis to Penn's Peak on Dec. 20. He'll also do some of his all-time great hits like "Lucille" and "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town."

Several major performers are on the concert schedule for the coming months at Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe.

Recently announced were:

Ÿ Rockin' the Holidays with Felix Cavaliere's Rascals on Dec. 14.

Ÿ Pink Floyd Experience on Feb. 28.

Ÿ The Lettermen on May 29.

If you're making New Year's Eve plans, consider the Get the Led Out, which will be performing both Dec. 30 and 31. Get the Led Out is a Led Zepellin tribute band.

Zion UCC, Second and Iron streets, Lehighton is again hosting its ecumenical Christmas concert at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 30.

The cantata was created by former Zion UCC Director of Music Paul R. Smith 40 years ago. The current Director of Music, Brad Cressley, has continued the tradition.

Last year's cantata featured 80 voices which represented 22 different chuches and organizations.

Cressley said, "This year we hope to have a choir of 100 strong and the group is once again looking for vocalists to join the cantata."

One mark of an entertaining movie is what scenes, lines of dialogue or laughs, tears and thoughts stay with you after you depart the theater.

After I saw "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day," I was still chuckling to myself.

"Alexander," based on the children's book by Judith Viorst, is in the genre of family dilemma comedies. This is somewhat of a lost art in contemporary Hollywood studio film-making since many comedies are animation features or teen and college-age R-rated raunch.
