Flimsy, shallow and a bother just to watch

If you’ve seen one movie based on a Nicholas Sparks romance, you’ve seen them all. Like the others, “The Choice” bleeds sap and treacle. And the story, even by Sparks’ standards, is so lame I wanted to punch the movie in the face, so to speak.

Early Voting

Sabrina Self votes Tuesday at the Jefferson County Clerk’s Office in the White Hall School District’s proposed millage increase. Election officials said turnout was light with only 21 voters from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Early voting will continue during regular office hours from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m through Friday, and again on Monday, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Special election day voting will be from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9.
