  •  Elizabeth-Burton Jones is starting off the new year great. She won $100 for answering a question on the “Today” show earlier this week, as well as had an opportunity to meet Darren Criss, who plays Blaine Anderson, an openly gay student from a rival glee club, the Dalton Academy Warblers, on the TV show, “Glee.”
    Jones traveled to New York City to visit her best friend, Emily Miller, on Jan. 5. During her visit, she went to see “Today,” and met the morning hosts before being asked if she would like to play the trivia game, “Who Knew?” on the Kathy Lee and Hoda Show. Of course, she said yes, noted her mother, Marilyn Thomas Jones.
    The question? “The Golden globes are famous for what?” The answer, the red carpet.
    Jones knew the answer and garnered $100 for her efforts. If you want to watch, go to: www.video.today.msnbc.msn.com/today/45957564
    STARK COUNTY ARTISTS
    “Full Size Tiger,” a sculpture by Laurie Baker of Massillon, was the public’s favorite, garnering it the Massillon Museum’s Stark County Artists Exhibition’s People’s Choice Award.  
    Each exhibit visitor could vote once for any of the 62 pieces of artwork by 41 participating individuals. Other artwork that visitors rated highly included Julie Deutschman’s copper “Breakdancing” pendant, “Flora,” by Kristen Lupsor, and Frank Dale’s “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” which had been selected Best in Show by the jurors.
    The next main gallery exhibition, “Another Look at the New Look,” will open Jan. 21, from 7 to 9 p.m. with a free public party. The exhibition will feature women’s Dior-influenced garments from the museum’s permanent collection, clothing created by four “Project Runway” designers, and related contemporary pieces designed by students enrolled in The Fashion School at Kent State University. “Another Look” will continue through April 1.
    YULETIDE BREAKFAST
    On Dec. 17, ystark!, a department of the Canton Regional Chamber, held its first annual Yuletide Breakfast Fest at Canton Memorial Civic Center. During the event, local foster families gathered for a festive holiday breakfast, playing games and learning about how physical activity can lead to a healthy lifestyle.
    Ystark! partnered with Pathway Caring for Children and provided 82 new bikes and helmets to the children Pathway supports. The bikes and helmets were provided through donations from local young professionals, with business support from Chesapeake Energy, along with Aultman Health Foundation, The Canton Charge, The City of Canton, Mixers Lounge, The Ohio Vortex, Siegfried Enterprises-McDonald’s Restaurants, Beese, Fulmer Investment Management Family and Prodigy Sound.
    The Yuletide Breakfast Fest is the first service project that ystark! has taken on since they recently joined forces with the past members of the Canton Jaycees.
