Events + Plugin

Hi,
This events + plugin isn't working for me. I can't add an event. It won't publish. I'm using a Press75 theme. And I want to have a calendar display on my home page. Is there an easier plugin to use? i just want to enter events and have them display on a calendar on my home page and event page.

I'm not sure why my test event won't publish. I have the settings on plugin calendar.
Any help or direction to an easier plugin would be appreciated.

Thanks
Randie
