Regular readers of The Cricket (yes, both of you) may remember past mentions of Keala Settle, the Southern Utah University alum who received raves for her performance in the Broadway musical "Hands on a Hardbody," which opened in late March and closed early this month.

Today there's a happy ending to Settle's brief "Hardbody" tale: She received a Tony nomination, as featured actress in a musical, for her role as one of the contestants in an endurance contest to win a pickup truck.
