What a ride it’s been for Jennifer Lawrence in the past year, one that continued Saturday night when she picked up an award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

That’s a lot for anyone. When asked about it on the red carpet outside the Arlington Theatre, Lawrence smiled, took a deep breath and told The Star, “Yeah, it’s been exhausting and an honor.”

TERRE HAUTE — A club in New York City or the front room of the Eldredges’ house near West Terre Haute.
The setting never fazed Terry Eldredge, even as a teenager. He could play music anywhere, bold and confident.
