TYLER PERRY'S "Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned"

Yes…the title is absolutely true. One lesson to learn in life, you can’t scorn a woman and think you’ve achieved an accomplishment. It never works out!

The bizarre story of Anita (Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley) a lonely woman who meets a man in a manner that is becoming more popular these days. He treats her like a Nubian Queen when they first meet. However, Grandma Hattie (Patrice Lovely) and Anita's best friend, Jasmine (Monica Blaire) have their reservations about him and so when things changed, they REALLY changed. Well, the rest of the events are unpredictable and entertaining!

Tyler Perry’s new production is remarkable presenting another array of new cast members! The exceptional acting and outstanding singing will amaze the audiences in the high and low moments. Cast member Cheryl “Pepsii” Riley is a familiar favorite from several past Tyler Perry productions. Patrice Lovely is seen on "Love Thy Neighbor" weekly on the OWN Network. Completing this artistic cast roster is some of the best talent you will find. Ray Lavendar (Victor); Zebulon Ellis (Reverend); Muhammed Ayers (Randy); Candice Pye (Mona) and Olrick Johnson (Detective Larry).

Casting Crowns

Following a successful 40-city spring run, multiplatinum-selling group Casting Crowns will extend its THRIVE Tour and play Fresno’s Selland Arena on September 23rd. The THRIVE Tour will feature GRAMMY® nominee Mandisa and Dove Aware nominees Sidewalk Prophets. Casting Crowns has garnered numerous accolades including three GRAMMY® nominations, an RIAA 2x multi-Platinum certification and multiple RIAA Gold certifications, with total album sales surpassing 8 million. Building on that momentum, The THRIVE Tour is sure to not disappoint, with a set list that includes Casting Crowns’ biggest hits – spanning more than a decade of ministry – in addition to selections from the group’s new release, THRIVE (Beach Street/Reunion Records), the band’s first full-length effort in two years.

The songs on THRIVE are an extension of what lead singer/songwriter Mark Hall has been teaching his students at Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church in Atlanta, where he serves as youth pastor. The heart behind the project is for these songs to encourage believers to dig down into the roots of who they are in Christ so that they are fully equipped to reach out and share their faith with others. Following this theme, half of the songs on the album are focused on “reaching out,” while the other half are dedicated to “digging deep.”

San Joaquin Valley Town Hall Presents Jerry Greenfield

Ice Cream, Social Responsibility and an Innovative Business Philosophy

When Jerry Greenfield and Ben Cohen opened their storefront in Burlington, Vermont more than 30 years ago, neither could have predicted that their passion for ice cream would spark a revolution in social and business strategy that would be copied by conglomerates and small businesses alike. They just knew they liked ice cream and they liked local cows. All these years later, as Ben & Jerry’s serves its ice cream around the world, its co-founder is still thinking about ways that successful business can help develop social responsibility into a win win for the company and the community.

Greenfield’s mission and vision is to grow a business in a socially responsible way. He will share his ideas about social spirit, America’s entrepreneurial landscape and ice cream with his signature fun and creative flair.
