Easy ways to simplify your holidays

Get into the holiday spirit by watching “The Grinch” at the Rockford Theatre this weekend.

Let your heart grow a few sizes by Paul Hall   Whoville loves Christmas! Family, presents, food, decorations and so many more things all come together in one glorious celebration for the residents of this little town. The Dr. Seuss tale returns to the big screen and is brought to life with a modern look and feel with the release of “The Grinch.”   Despite the celebratory atmosphere around Whoville, there is one resident living high above this small town who is less than enthused about the joy that exists. That resident, of course, is the Grinch (voice of Benedict Cumberbatch).   Something had an impact on the Grinch’s ability to enjoy Christmas and all that comes with it. In fact, the Grinch simply has a disdain for all the residents in the merry town he overlooks.   But he has a plan to mute the enjoyment of the citizens below. He will steal Christmas. Along with his

trusty “reindeer”/dog Max, he sets off to silence the revelry by taking everything symbolizing Christmas that exists in Whoville. Will that dastardly act silence these Whos, or is there more to Christmas than things?   “The Grinch” is a tough story to crack. The 1966 version – narrated by Boris Karloff, who captured the mood so well– airs on television annually and has a permanent spot on Bluray in my household. Albeit only 26 minutes in length, it never felt too short to me. Then in 2000, Ron Howard brought the story to life with the chameleon Jim Carrey undertaking the role of the classic green guy. It was different, but fun. Now crisply and flawlessly animated, can “The Grinch” circa 2018 uphold the tradition of its lead character?   Well, yes, kind of. Let me explain.   Where this version of the story goes right is with truly beautiful animation. The Illumination team never

lets me down as they bring to life a truly magical holiday favorite. This is the type of animation that resonates with today’s youth. Musically, the new songs just feel like they are missing some of the special nature from the original effort. The songs are hip, fun and unique while dealing with the source material in an extremely respectful manner, but I wanted something else.   What is tough for me is the length. As with Howard’s 2000 film, this film struggles to extend the story to feature length. Our extra time spent with the Mean One is not entirely merited.   Although this iteration of Seuss’ tale doesn’t replace the spot in my heart for the original, I do have to admit this film does give me warm and fuzzy feelings about the impending holiday season. The characters bring enjoyment and love for our fellow creatures on the Earth. Its ultimate mes-

sage of hope, acceptance and love is something we could all use a little bit more of in our life. The Grinch may be a mean one, but the movie is far from mean and welcomes people everywhere with a warm and inviting glow. Maybe others will have their hearts grow a few sizes after seeing this installment— one can only hope, right?   Paul’s Grade: B  “The Grinch” comes to the Rockford Theatre in downtown New Rockford this weekend, with 8 p.m. showings Friday, Nov. 30 thru Monday, Dec. 3.   Brought to you by the publishers of TV Guide, the ultimate TV resource packed with celebrity news and commentary on what’s new and what’s good to watch.

  (StatePoint) It can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the busyness of the holiday season— from perfecting your home décor to searching for gifts for everyone on your list to creating a delicious holiday menu.   To help simplify the holidays, Dollar General is offering easy tips, so you can spend more time enjoying the most magical time of the year. Deck the Halls   Get festive this season by creating a holiday wonderland in your home. Pick a color theme like red and green or blue and silver— whatever best fits your taste. Carry the theme throughout your home as you decorate the tree, holiday table, mantle and gifts. Consider adding a wreath to greet guests as soon as they arrive, as well as candles.   With varieties like salted caramel and amber spice, those from Dollar General’s private brand True Living will capture the scents of the season. Small touches like a table runner or a floral centerpiece can also make your home feel like the perfect holiday escape during this busy season. Holiday Meal Prep   Cooking for a big crew can certainly be stressful. This year, use digital recipes to help you plan for the big event. Holiday sweets are always a favorite, so consider gifting your favorite desserts. If you plan to spend a lot of time prepping for a big holiday party or just a special dinner for your family, don’t forget the snacks to tide everyone over as you await the main course. For snacking

you can feel great about, consider wholesome choices like roasted almonds or granola with less sugar. Gift-Giving   The holidays are the perfect time to gather with friends and loved ones to exchange presents in celebration of the season. If you’re worried about finding something affordable for everyone, consider shopping at a discount retailer, like Dollar General.   With deals throughout the store on picture frames, books, candles, coffee mugs and more, you can treat everyone on your list without breaking the bank. Plus, they are offering an instant 25 percent savings on any qualifying toy purchase of $75 or more through Dec. 24, 2018. By downloading the store’s app, you can access DG Digital coupons. New customers automatically receive a digital coupon for $1 off their first purchase of $1.01 or more.  Don’t forget the gift wrap! Get creative with your trimmings by choosing a unique theme for each person on your list. With so many wrapping paper, gift bag and ribbon options, you can make every gift as special as the person receiving it.   This season, keep your sights on the essentials. Simplify your shopping by creating a signature theme for home décor, finding deals on gifts for everyone on your list, and baking up something easy and delicious for the whole crew. Plan ahead this year and enjoy the extra time celebrating the season with friends and family.

Allmaras named Senior Athlete, Belquist Coach of the Year in Region 2 by Erik Gjovik, Foster County Independent   One area football player stood head and shoulders above the rest, with the release of the All-Region 2 Team in the Nine-Man Football classification.  New Rockford-Sheyenne’s Teddy Allmaras was named the Senior Athlete of the Year for the region.   It was impossible to ignore the stat lines from Allmaras, the Rockets’ senior quarterback. The 5’11”, 165-pound signal caller marched NR-S up and down the field to the tune of 2,240 yards passing and 35 touchdowns to just eight interceptions, and also rushed for 305 yards and five additional scores.   On the “X” side of the ball, Allmaras played another big role in the secondary. His three interceptions tied him for first on the Rockets, and he finished with 33 total tackles. Ted-

Teddy Allmaras

dy is the son of Linus and Susette Allmaras of New Rockford.   Allmaras was merely one part of the Rockets’ successful campaign, one in which the team advanced to the Nine-Man quarterfinal round and gave eventual champion Thompson their closest scare of this year’s playoffs in defeat, 32-28.  Additional First Team selections included wide receiver/cornerback Bo

Belquist, wide receiver/defensive end Tucker Longnecker, lineman/defensive end Joey Gray, wide receiver/cornerback Nathan Holzwarth and running back/linebacker Luke Ystaas.   For the Honorable Mention list, running back/ linebacker Hunter Thompson, lineman/linebacker Keegan Anderson and offensive/defensive lineman Hunter Johnson were tabbed for NR-S.  Rocket’s Coach Elliott Belquist was selected as the Nine-Man Region 2 Coach of the Year. He led NR-S to a 9-1 record and the regional championship for the first time since 2012, and just finished his 10th year at the helm. Belquist has a career record of 57-37.
