Kenny Rogers’ Book Inspires
Hallmark Channel Movie of the Week

Country Legend’s Heartwarming Christmas in Canaan Adapted
for the Small Screen; Set to Air Saturday, December 12, at 8/7c

Country-music legend, versatile actor and respected author Kenny Rogers brings his 2002 tale of an unlikely friendship and holiday redemption to television, as the Hallmark Channel premieres the original film Christmas in Canaan on Saturday, December 12, at 8/7c.
With a screenplay written by Rogers’ co-author Donald Davenport, Christmas in Canaan tells the story of two young boys—one black, one white—who overcome their racial animosity while caring for an injured dog. Country star and actor Billy Ray Cyrus (DocHannah Montana) turns in a sterling performance as Daniel Burton, the single father of DJ, a hot-headed boy who gets into a scuffle with classmate Rodney on the school bus. Burton devises an unconventional plan to help the boys learn mutual respect: DJ and Rodney will each take turns living at the other’s home.
Set against the backdrop of Civil Rights Era Texas, Christmas in Canaan is just the latest television project for Grammy Award winner Rogers. He famously starred in the 1980 TV-movie The Gambler, along with its subsequent sequels, and recently appeared on the CBS hit sitcom How I Met Your Mother. An author specializing in Christmas tales, Rogers’ other books include The Gift and The Toy Shoppe.

Jerry Michael Hardy Greer is the son of Craig and Karen Greer. He was 19 years old on the day of his going home. Jerry was the smile that instantly lit up any room.

New Flavor Friday from Blue Bell..

From KHOU-TV Houston:  BRENHAM, TX -- Blue Bell Ice Cream is teasing a new flavor on its social media feeds. The Texas-based ice cream company has been slowly reintroducing its flavors to many of the markets it had withdrawn from after last year's fatal Listeria outbreak forced them to completely shut down production for a time. During the shutdown, the company worked with outside experts to control and eliminate potential sources of Listeria inside the Texas and Oklahoma facilities where the outbreak originated. While production of the iconic brand has resumed, not all of the company's flavors that were being produced prior to the plant closings are available. Blue Bell has been taking a measured reintroduction, and now has product available in most states and markets where they were prior to the closings. In this week's social media tease, the company says the new flavor will have fans "dancing in the grocery store aisles." Our newest flavor is a combination o…

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding. A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
