It's been quite a year for Jewel Kilcher, an Alaska native and former San Diego coffeehouse crooner who at one point lived out of her van to focus on her music dreams. With a Joni Mitchell-like voice and a wholesome aura, the singer was nominated for two Grammys and reached the Top 10 with two sweet, lilting hits: "Who Will Save Your Soul" and "You Were Meant for Me," from her debut album, "Pieces of You."

Jewel may have come from the Lilith Fair generation of female singers and songwriters, but her latest move pays homage to a much earlier era of guitar-playing troubadours. The 39-year-old is taking on the role of June Carter Cash in "Ring of Fire," a Lifetime movie scheduled to premiere Monday. The film, directed by Allison Anders, throws the spotlight squarely on the woman casual music fans may know only as Johnny Cash's wife. It's no easy task since Jewel is following in the footsteps of Reese Witherspoon, who won an Oscar for lead actress in the 2005 biopic "Walk the Line.

Jewel Kilcher has the year's most unlikely alternative-rock radio hit: "Who Will Save Your Soul," a lilting folk tune that shares few of the aggressive or self-consciously hip elements normally prized on the format. When the song comes on, say, KR0Q-FM, it's easy to think you've pushed the wrong button on the car radio. There's no sly sexual innuendo peeking out from Jewel's questioning of religious institutions. No gut-wrenching, hair-tearing shrieks claw the song's bridge.

Although Jewel certainly ranks high among pop music's nouveau riche, the sprawling mock-Tudor home she shares with her mother in a tranquil area of northern San Diego County is hardly a monument to showy opulence.

Among the traits likely to endear 21-year-old Jewel Kilcher to fans of folk-based pop music are her striking, chameleonic voice; her unfettered and unforced emotionalism; and her heartening and touching streak of youthful idealism. Another reason to like Jewel, who bills herself on a first-name-only basis, is that she was raised in a log cabin in Alaska.

Hazel Bishop, 92, a chemist who created long-lasting lipstick. Bishop was working in a dermatologist's laboratory after World War II when she developed a formula for lipstick that would not smudge off on people, glasses, teeth or cigarettes. Billed as long-wearing, nondrying and nonirritating, it was promoted in ads featuring a man and woman in amorous embrace that said: "It stays on YOU . . . not on HIM!"

In the real Orange County, not everyone ends up living in their custom-built home. The intended family residence of actress Kristin Cavallari has come on the market at $13.95 million in Three Arch Bay, a gated Laguna Beach community. Cavallari was playing herself in 28 episodes of "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County" (2004-05) during part of the eight-year construction period but never occupied the feng shui-savvy residence.

The centerpiece of the 1999 Civil War drama "Ride With the Devil" is neither a glorious victory nor a crushing defeat. In fact, the movie's climactic battle sequence is hardly a battle at all. The war had far bloodier days but few as purely wasteful as Aug. 21, 1863, when a loose federation of Confederate troops and the ad hoc militia known as Bushwhackers rode into Lawrence, Kan., and gunned down some 160 men and boys, most of them unarmed and some...
