Reviews for "Snow White and the Huntsman," a dark and violent retelling of the fairy tale, are all over the map. This movie follows the recent release of a comic adaptation -- "Mirror, Mirror" with Julia Roberts and Nathan Lane -- and they couldn't be more different. "Snow White and the Huntsman" is driven by special effects, and a vicious queen, played by Charlize Theron. Snow White (Kristen Stewart) is much more feisty too -- far, far from a naive fairy tale character. Sounds like a movie you will love or hate.

G. Leslie "Les" Grimes, the Green Spring Valley Hounds' huntsman for 35 seasons, died of a heart ailment Monday at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. The Butler resident was 89. On a fox hunt, Mr. Grimes, astride a horse and dressed in a scarlet coat, would use his distinctive voice and a horn to lead a pack of nearly 40 hounds. "Tall and slow-talking, with a face scored from all those years outdoors, Mr. Grimes moves with the kind of lanky grace that hounds and horses find reassuring," read a 1973 Evening Sun profile.

Except for the lack of a swimsuit issue, Geezerjock - a new magazine targeting older athletes - could be called Sports Illustrated for Seniors. The slick publication, launched this year, includes a similar format of feature stories, event coverage, profiles and eye-catching photography as SI - with one major difference. All of Geezerjock's content is focused on Masters' level competitors and competitions. "Masters" is commonly used to refer to sporting events for men and women amateur athletes 40 or 50 and above.

Former ambassador to China and GOP presidential primary contender Jon Huntsman normally takes reasonable positions, but he has waffled on the question of global warming ("Gingrich has double-digit lead in new national poll," Dec. 7). Mr. Huntsman was quoted in The Sun as requesting the scientific community to state its position on whether humans have played a role in climate change more clearly. Mr. Huntsman should be aware that the National Academies of Sciences, the nation's spokesman for the scientific community, has unequivocally stated that global warming is in part man made and poses an serious threat to mankind.

Those weird Motocross ads must be working.  GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman yesterday picked up what must be a coveted endorsement among bike riders: The approval of Annapolis native (and extreme biking king) Travis Pastrana. Pastrana is the only human being on earth who can do a double backflip on a bike, and he's usually not political. But he decided to ride into the political mud for his friend and fellow rider Huntsman.  Here's how @travispastrana endorsed @jonhuntsman on Twitter:   "Not one 4 politics, but  @ JonHuntsman , fellow MX rider, good friend of  @ NitroCircus  &smartest man I know, is running 4 President.

GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman's campaign wants you to know that he is a Motocross rider in his spare time "to relax" -- and that he is apparently very, very cool.  No surprise, this ad comes from Fred Davis, who made Christine O'Donnell's famous "I am not a witch" ad and Carly Fiorina's "Demon sheep" ad. (Which are, incidentally, my two favorite ads of the last campaign cycle.)  A previous Davis ad for Huntsman (President Obama's former ambassador to China) also mentioned his former rock band, "Wizard.
