I
love taking surveys,
especially those
supermarket-related
ones I get in the mail
every so often. You know, the
ones that ask how often you
buy dish detergent, if you’ve
ever bought the store-brand
version of aspirin and what
type of tech gadgets you plan
on purchasing within the next
month, six months or year?
When I see them in
my mailbox, I get giddy and
grab the first blue Paper Mate
pen I see to painstakingly fill
out the survey. Mind you, I
never mail the survey in —
because really, who does? —
but I do get a weird form of
happiness putting an X in all
those little boxes.
It’s kind of the same
feeling of happiness I get as
this particular issue goes to
press each year — and not
just because the monster that
is our Readers’ Choice poll is
done for another 12 months. I
love seeing who or what our
readers vote for and how their
tastes change from year to
year.
I’m also really happy to

MUSIC AT THE
MOUNTAIN RETURNS
After three years of silence,
the Mountain Laurel Per-
forming Arts Center (Bush-
kill Road, Bushkill) will reo-
pen this summer for a hand-
ful of shows.
While the complete sched-
ule is not concrete at this
time, the venue’s publicist,
Deborah Bailey of Bailey
Design & Advertising, told
the Weekender Kiss and Ma-
roon 5 with Train are defi-
nites and other performers
are in the works.
“We’re using the tagline
‘The music is back in the
Pocono Mountains,” Bailey
told the Weekender Monday.
The schedule will be an-
nounced Monday, April 18,
which is also the date tickets
will go on sale and the date
that the website, www.moun-
tainlaurelcenter.com, will go
live.
SHERMAN SCAMMED
After the first show sold
out in mere minutes, the
Sherman Theater (524 Main
St., Stroudsburg) added a
second Drake show, but the
venue later sent out an an-
nouncement stating that the
concerts, scheduled for May
27, were canceled due to an
elaborate scam put in place
by outside promoter Kihiem
Muhammad of Virginia
Beach, Va.
Full refunds are available at
the point of purchase. For
more info, call 570.420.2808.
HERE COMES THE SUN
The WNBA’s Connecticut
Sun will play one of its two

hegan Sun Arena (255 High-
land Park Blvd., Wilkes-
Barre Twp.) Friday, May 2 at

against the San Antonio
Silver Stars is the first
WNBA game to be held at
the arena.
“This team, affiliated with
our naming rights partner,

extraordinary basketball skills
to be enjoyed by men, women
and youth from our northeast
PA region,” said Rebecca
Bonnevier, SMG general
manager of the arena, in a
press release.

go on sale on Monday, April
11 at 10 a.m. at the arena box
office, Ticketmaster or by

PRAIRIE HOME
CANCELATION
Garrison Keillor’s per-
formance that was to be held
Tuesday, April 5 at the Har-
ry and Jeanette Weinberg

canceled “due to a scheduling
conflict,” according to a press
release. Refunds will be
available at the point of pur-
chase.
Keillor will still perform at
the Sovereign Performing
Arts Center in Reading
Thursday, Nov. 17, and a
block of tickets have been set
aside for purchase by patrons

news of the weird
By Chuck Shepherd
Weekender Wire Services
DIRTY, FILTHY ART
A 200-exhibit installation on
the history of dirt and filth and
their importance in our lives
opened in a London gallery in
March, featuring the ordinary
(dust), the educational (a video
tribute to New York’s Fresh Kills
landfill, at one time the world’s
largest), the medical (vials of
historic, nasty-looking secretions
from cholera victims) and the
artistic (bricks fashioned from
feces gathered by India’s Dalits,
who hand-clean latrines). Dirt
may worry us as a society, said
the exhibit’s curator, but we have
learned that we “need bits of it
and, guiltily, secretly, we are
sometimes drawn to it.” Capping
the exhibit, leaning against a
wall, was what appeared at a
distance to be an ordinary broom
but whose handle was studded
with diamonds and pearls.
NEWS THAT SOUNDS LIKE
A JOKE
(1) The manager of the Chan-
nel Islands Co-operative store in
the British territory of Jersey
acknowledged to BBC News in
November that a shopper’s com-
plaint was justified and that
refunds would be made. The
customer believed she had been
overcharged by about five
pounds (about $8) because, while
weighing fruits and vegetables,
the clerk had been leaning over
so that her breasts accidentally
increased pressure on the scale.
(2) Britain’s Border Agency
announced the firing of an im-
migration officer in January. The
man had apparently turned sour
on his marriage, and while his
wife was on holiday with her
family in Pakistan, he quietly
added her name to the terrorist
list of people not allowed into the
country.
POLICE BLOTTER
-- Tough Guys: (1) In Houston
in February, Christopher Hard-
ing, 23, was sentenced to three
years in prison for beating up his
mother (who is disabled and
requires a caretaker) and yanking
out her dentures. (2) In Long
Beach, Calif., in February, police
arrested two 19-year-old men,
Kirk Lewis and Daniel Bard, and
charged them as two of the three
men they sought in the robbery
of a 5-year-old girl.
-- Intra-Geek-Community
Crime: In March, a teenager was
charged with attempting to rob
the Fun 4 All comic-book store
in Southfield, Mich., with a
homemade bomb (that looked
realistic but turned out to be
harmless) and presenting a list of
the specific collectors’ merchan-
dise (not money) he wanted.
After the clerk balked at the
demands, the robber relented,
paid cash for a few of the items
on the list, and left. When arrest-
ed later, he called the incident a
“social experiment.”
-- Timothy James Chapek, 24,
was charged with burglary in
March after he broke into a
house in Portland, Ore., and took
a shower. Unknown to him, the
resident was in another part of
the house and came, with his two
German shepherds and a gun, to
confront Chapek through the
closed bathroom door, while
calling 911. Fearing the dogs and
the gun, Chapek simultaneously
dialed 911 himself, begging that
officers come quickly and arrest
him. (Chapek, later released on
bond, was re-arrested two days
later in Chehalis, Wash., while,
according to police, loading
shoplifted goods into a stolen
car.)
GREAT ART!
-- In February, a New York
City gallery began offering class-
es in “anthropomorphic taxider-
my,” described as a “Victorian
hobby” in which mouse carcasses
are not only meticulously cleaned
and stuffed, but outfitted in hand-
made miniature 19th-century
clothing, such as bloomers. Brit-
ish practitioners are said to have
created elaborate scenes featur-
ing scores of the costumed bod-
ies. Class instructor Susan Jeiven
said the mice have to look “clas-
sy.” “I don’t like rogue taxider-
my.”
-- Scottish artist Jane Forbes,
47, won the “Shoe Is Art” com-
petition in Dundee in late 2010
with a work (“Ad Infinitum”)
that a University of Dundee
spokesman called “awe-inspir-
ing.” Forbes painted (and pho-
tographed) the same pair of shoes
every day for 66 consecutive
days, hypothesizing that subtle
differences in her “mood” would
be detectable in any variations in
the paint jobs.
LEAST COMPETENT
CRIMINALS
Not Ready for Prime Time: (1)
Jason Davis was sentenced in
December in Burlington, Iowa, to
five years in prison for one
crime, but still pending is his
August 2010 arrest for shop-
lifting at Westland Mall, which
ended with Davis passed out
after making a crime-scene boo-
boo in his pants. (2) Michael
Trias, 20, was arrested in March
in Mesa, Ariz., after a botched
residential burglary. According to
police, Trias had come in through
a window but had landed in a
clothes basket made of PVC and
netting, and become entangled.
His flailing attempts to free him-
self alerted the homeowner.
THE WEIRDO-AMERICAN
COMMUNITY
Salt Lake County (Utah) cor-
rections officer Robert Monson,
38, was charged in December
with having sex with a female he
had met while she was in lockup.
According to the woman, the
couple’s trysts were not impeded
by her ankle monitor, which
Monson insisted was “sexy.” (In
fact, shortly after the monitor
was removed, the relationship
ended.) (2) A 50-year-old man
was charged with indecent expo-
sure near Yakima, Wash., in
March when he jumped in front
of a woman, genitals exposed,
but otherwise dressed in a diver’s
wet suit, mask and bright orange
gloves.
A NEWS OF THE WEIRD
CLASSIC (MARCH1991)
India’s legal system is noto-
riously among the world’s most
leisurely paced. In December
(1990) in New Delhi, four men
(ages 82, 71, 63 and 62) were
acquitted of accusations that they
defrauded a government-run
transport company by buying
bogus motor parts. The men had
been charged with the crime in
1955 (when they were, respec-
tively, 47, 36, 28 and 27 years
old), and the trial began in 1957.
Hearings continued, off and on,
for 33 years before Judge V.B.
Gupta concluded in December
that the government had failed to
prove its case. W

Music on the menu
By Alan K. Stout
Weekender Music Columnist
M
ike Naydock has always
had an ear for a good
song. He’s always en-
joyed listening to the music of
local artists and — more than
anything — he’s enjoyed giving
them airplay on his long-run-
ning radio show, “Cellar Full of
Noise.” And he says it makes
absolutely no difference what
type of music a song might be
for him to consider it some
spins.
All that matters is that it’s
good.
“Cellar Full of Noise” airs on
WRKC-FM (88.5) Radio King’s
College on Saturday at 8 p.m.
and Sunday at 5 p.m. Though
the show debuted at King’s in
the fall of 2008, its history
dates back to 1995 on the old
WZMT-FM, The Mountain,
which was based out of Hazle-
ton and aired on 97.9-FM. In
the mid-90s, a television ver-
sion of the show also appeared
on WYLN-TV in Hazleton.
The radio show later moved to
WKAB-FM in Berwick, where
it aired from 2002-2006. In
total, Naydock has now spent
about eight years, on three
different stations, playing the
music of regional artists.
“There’s a lot of good stuff,”
says Naydock, who is also an
accomplished songwriter and
has penned many songs with
The Badlees, including the
band’s national hit, “Angeline Is
Coming Home.” He says being
both a songwriter and a DJ
gives him a unique perspective
when programming his radio
show.
“Working with The Badlees,
we were always excited when
other people were doing origi-
nal music,” he says. “But there
weren’t a whole lot of people
playing it on the radio. I just
wanted to do a show to expose
it, and the criteria were whatev-
er I liked, I would play. It
didn’t have to be a certain
genre. It could be whatever. It
could be country. It could be
jazz. If it was good, I’d put it
on.”
Naydock is aware that such
freedom in programming their
own shows is something most
DJs don’t have.
“It’s fun,” he says. “You mix
it up. And there’s so many
different people sending stuff
and responding. And now, with
Facebook, you can let people
know what’s going on and they
can follow it almost immediate-
ly.”
“Cellar Full Of Noise” not
only features the latest music
by regional artists, but also
some great blasts from NEPA’s
past, including tracks from the
’90s and even the ’80s.
“I have all of that stuff in a
library, along with the new
stuff I’m getting,” says Nay-
dock. “It’s good to show people
what it was like. L.A. Tarone,
who went to King’s, did a com-
pilation of a lot of stuff that
was out in the valley in 1981,
and it’s really cool to hear stuff
like The Decodes.”
Naydock names Mere Mor-
tals, Cabinet, Plus 3, Simpleton,
The Mange and the solo work
of Eddie Appnel as some of
his all-time favorite local art-
ists. He adds that these days, a
locally independently released
CD can sound better than
what’s being released on the
major labels.
“When The Badlees first
came out in the early ’90s,
there wasn’t a whole lot of
really well-produced music,” he
says. “Or if there was, you
really had to go and do it in a
major studio. But the big thing
now is the local change on the
production end of things. It’s
quality, top-notch, and as good
as anything that’s been mastered
and released nationally. And the
quality of the music and the
songwriting … there’s a lot of
talent, even with the basics, and
even before the production.”
Naydock says he’s received
positive feedback on the show
from both listeners and artists,
who appreciate the airplay. He
adds that it’s fulfilling to often
be the very first person to
introduce an audience to a
great song.
“When you write a song, you
want as many people to hear it
as possible,” he says. “You
want to write it, and somehow
get it recorded, and even if it’s
just you and a guitar, if it’s a
really good recording, you want
as many people to hear that as
you can. And it’s wonderful to
hear what you did over the
radio. That never gets old. You
have a lot of pride in it, and
somebody took the time to play
it, and now it’s getting heard. If
I can get people that exposure,
it’s super-gratifying.” W
“Cellar Full of Noise,” hosted
by Mike Naydock, Sat., 8 p.m.,
Sun., 5 p.m. on WRKC-FM,
(88.5), Radio King’s College.

While the Raveonettes may not be
a familiar name to everyone, almost
everyone has heard where their music
comes from. The Danish duo combines
the noise and emotion of ’90s alternative
with the simplicity and purity of ’50s and
’60s rock ’n’ roll, occasionally creating
a sound that is so full and rich that it
becomes hard to believe that the songs
are made by just two people. However,
During “Architects,” the opening
track of Rise Against’s recent release,
“Endgame,” lead singer Tim McIlrath
sings all about how disappointing it is
when someone loses a passion they had
for something they once loved. One may
interpret this as McIlrath singing about
his band.
When Rise Against was younger, it
played aggressive punk music. Now,
after combining its previous release
“Appeal to Reason,” with “Endgame,”
it’s clear the band lost a little of the
Indie rockers The Strokes
are back with “Angles,” an
ambitious effort that celebrates
the band’s return from a long
hiatus and also gives their fans
a glimpse of that which may
be yet to come. While in many
ways it is still as energetic and
rebellious as their earlier work,
“Angles” also shows some
maturity and growth, as well as
a willingness to experiment with
new sounds and styles. However,
unlike many other artists, this
experimentation is not done
just for the sake of doing so,
but instead is an inspired and
calculated exploration of the
different types of music that The
Strokes are capable of making

“Endgame”
while the band has the potential to do
something great with that, more often
than not, it seems that they are making
noise simply for the sake of making
noise, and the music is more style than
it is substance. The twosome’s latest
album, “Raven in the Grave,“ is an aptly
named piece that is at times haunting and
mesmerizing, but overall it is repetitive,
dry and easily forgettable.
While the album gets off to a strong
start with “Recharge & Revolt,” with its
bit of rockabilly-styled flair that seems to
be the beginning of something exciting.
However, that energy is soon lost, and
the listener is treated to track after track
of the same droning vocals and distorted
instrumentation before finally closing
with “My Time’s Up,” which sounds like
the closing slow dance at a senior prom
for the undead.
Consistency within an album can
be good, however lack of variety and
creativity is not, and “Raven in the
Grave” definitely falls into the latter
category. If readers are looking for an
album to put on in order to fill up empty
space and put themselves into a trance,
then “Raven in the Grave” is that album
— those looking for something energetic
and new best look elsewhere.

passion and fire it had when it didn’t
have acts like Bad Religion and Rancid
opening for them.
The album picks up right where
“Appeal to Reason” left off with radio-
friendly, hard-rock songs instead of fist
pumping anthems.
“Disparity by Design,” “Broken
Mirrors” and “AGentleman’s Coup” are
better than any modern-rock tune on the
radio now; the band fuses catchy and
memorable choruses with strong lyrics,
however, it gets mundanely repetitive.
One thing Rise Against did stay true
to was sticking strong political messages
into its songs. The album touches on
everything from Hurricane Katrina to the
lack of concern for the future of America.
The deepest song is “Make it Stop
(September’s Children),” which is in
reference to the suicides of homosexuals
last September.
The two standout tracks are the slowest
on the entire record: “Wait For Me”
and “This is Letting Go.” With a solo
guitar that leads into the full band, the
melodic ideas showcase each musician’s
songwriting ability.
“Endgame” makes a boring full listen.
If you’re looking for a new manifestation
of Rise Against, “Endgame” will
disappoint you, but if you revel in the
clean emotion that this band has always
brought, this record is for you.

well.
“Angles” opens with “Machu
Picchu,” a song whose mix of
dub beats and ’80s pop sounds
sets the tone for the entire album:
Expect the unexpected. The
Strokes really are all over the
place on this album, sometimes
sounding as though they’ve
written a song for The Cure
(“Two Kinds of Happiness“) or
Billy Joel (“Gratisfaction”), and,
every so often, for themselves
(“Under Cover of Darkness”).
However, despite the fact that
the band is playing with so
many different things (and in so
little time) on “Angles,” they’ve
managed to create a sense of
continuity throughout the album.
While that continuity is partially
due to Julian Casablancas’
magnificent vocal work, this
truly was an effort by the entire
band and real proof of their talent
as artists.
From the mellow synth-
pop sound of “Games” to
the raw noise and energy of
“Metabolism,” The Strokes
have created a masterpiece with
“Angles.” They draw equally
from past influences as well as
contemporary ones, and have
managed to create an album
that in years to come may get
as much acclaim and credit as
their debut album did nearly a
decade ago. While The Strokes
can hardly still be considered the
latest thing, “Angles” reminds
critics and fans that the band still
has a few cards to play.

hether it’s a high
school football game
or a once local, now
nationally known star, home-
comings are something peo-
ple normally look forward
to. There is always a sense
of pride that is present. So
why is that Wilkes-Barre
native Bill Corgan and The
Misery Jackals has had such
a hard time returning to
NEPA to play a show?
“No one wanted us to
play,” Corgan said, phoning
in from his office in Ohio.
“I tried six or seven times
to get a show in the area
and kept getting ignored or
asked if we play covers.”
Corgan finally had luck
getting to play in his home
region after reaching out to
The Vintage Theater in
Scranton, and this Friday,
April 8, The Misery Jackals
will play with local acts
Down to Six and Echo
Whiskey Charlie.
The Misery Jackals are a
five piece ensemble that hail
from Akron, Ohio. The
group, which has an EP
titled “EP,” fuses punk rock,
bluegrass, blues, country,
zydeco and various forms of
ethnic musical styles to get
a sound it describe as “Pill-
billy Browngrass.”
Corgan, the bass player for
the Jackals, loved playing
music throughout high
school. He played with a
few friends and had fun, but
knew it could not be his
main career choice. So he
decided to ship himself to
Ohio for college and leave
the music scene for a bit.
“I wanted to go to Kent
State because of their great
architecture program,” he
said. “After a little, I real-
ized it wasn’t creative, and I
decided that wasn’t for me.
I ended up going to Akron
University, where I gradu-
ated with a degree in psy-
chology.”
After a few more years of
hard work and difficult
choices, Corgan ended up
with a law degree and his
own law firm. Yet, having
the status of a criminal de-
fense lawyer does not stop
The Misery Jackals from
touring every once and a
while.
The band actually started
as more of an afterthought
than anything else. Corgan
had always wanted to play
the banjo, but never really
got around to making it
happen. He purchased one
and let it sit around for
almost five years. Until one
day, an unforgettable one, to
say the least, a friend and
former bandmate of his died
from a sudden health issue.
At that moment, Corgan
knew not only did he want
to play the banjo, but he
started living by the “you
only live once” motto.
“It drilled a point into my
head that you have to live
your life and do what you
want to do because once
you are dead and gone, well,
that’s the end of it,” he said.
“So I literally went home
from the funeral and started
to try to play the banjo. I
broke strings just trying to
tune it, but I eventually
started to learn. After that I
wanted to start playing with
other people. ... And soon
the Misery Jackals were
formed.”
Rounding out the Jackals
is Jeff Selzer on guitar and
kazoo, Stephanie Serna who
plays the accordion and
washboard, Tim Burrows on
contrabass and drummer Eric
Baltrinic. The band even has
quirky stage names they use,
such as Corgan’s “Sweet
Willy C.” or Serna’s “Pirate
Jenny.”
Friday’s show at The Vin-
tage Theater starts a short
tour that takes the Misery
Jackals through some parts
of the country it’s never
been before. Afterward, the
Jackals will return to Ohio,
start recording a new album
and Corgan will continue to
defend his clients.
“I’m really looking for-
ward to this show,” he said.
“This is why I got into mu-
sic in the first place: To
have fun with friends and
family having a good time.”

movie review
reel attractions
By Ignatious Schiavo
Weekender Correspondent
A
soldier awakens in the
body of a complete
stranger aboard a train
bound for Chicago. While trying
to make sense of the situation,
the entire train is engulfed in a
horrific explosion. Welcome to
the “Source Code.”
Jake Gyllenhaal portrays
Colter Stevens, a U.S.
helicopter pilot in Afghanistan
currently involved in his third
tour of duty. It suffices to say
that unless you are Stevens,
awakening in the body of a
Chicago-bound businessman
is enough to shake just about
anyone — even a war hero
with arguably one of the
manliest names ever created.
Unfortunately, before he can
even make complete sense of
his situation, he is caught in
the massive blast of a terrorist
bomb aboard the train. After the
blast incinerates the train and
all aboard it, Stevens awakens
hanging upside down in a small
capsule. Avideo screen flickers
to life and Lt. Goodwin (Vera
Farmiga) is waiting for answers.
While formulaic in many
regards, “Source Code” is not
content to sit back on its laurels.
In this case, those laurels are
a top-flight cast and a release
date several weeks ahead of the
blockbuster film releases. When
the credits roll, it is that cast that
makes all of the difference for
moviegoers.
With a script that could
readily be adapted from a stage
production, “Source Code”
relies on tight, well-scripted
character interaction to fill the
gaps that might otherwise be
stuffed with needless action
or plot twists. This unique
factor, not the normal operating
procedure for an action film,
allows for a finished product
with so many elements of been
there, seen that to really deliver
on several different levels.
The film’s four main leads —
Gyllenhaal, Farmiga, Michelle
Monaghan and Jeffrey Wright
— all display superb chops
in scene after scene of tightly
cropped dramatics.
Wright, one of the more under
appreciated actors alive today,
brings to life the character of the
source code project pioneer, Dr.
Rutledge. It was Rutledge that
A well-thought-out ride

Why can’t anyone kill this franchise?
Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan star in the thriller ‘Source Code.’
discovered that the final eight
minutes of life are recorded
on the brain’s hard drive. By
accessing the Chicago-bound
businessman’s mind, Rutledge
is able to send Stevens to the
disaster-bound train with eight
minutes to find the bomb and
the bomber. While they cannot
do anything for the passengers
onboard the doomed train, they
hope to avert another bombing
by the same forces. Thus,
Stevens is sent back repeatedly
as he tries to find as many clues
as possible before his inevitable
demise.
The last piece of the puzzle
comes in the form of the lovely
and talented Monaghan. As
Christina, Monaghan is the
coworker/romantic interest of
the poor individual that becomes
the shell for Stevens. Within
the course of several return
trips to the disaster-bound
train, Gyllenhaal’s Stevens has
become smitten by the good-
natured soul and naturally
aspires to save her from her fate.
While not on the level of
“Inception,” writer Ben Ripley’s
story is a well-thought-out piece
of science fiction that succeeds
in keeping the interest of the
audience with a combination of
great acting and great writing.
The film carefully traverses the
minefield of the current political
climate with its terrorist attack
and Afghanistan War plotlines.
By relying on the deft touch
of subtlety, it is able to make
a statement about the horrors
of war without any glaringly
obvious chest pounding, and
it even goes a step further by
pulling ever so slightly on both
the patriotic and hope strings as
well. And just as the characters
learn, one can always benefit
from the right amount of both.

ralphie report
the
By Ralphie Aversa
Special to the Weekender
M
orning show radio host,
Las Vegas resident club
DJ, network executive,
TV personality, artist with a
forthcoming album release …
Nick Cannon is a man of many,
many titles. But, things aren’t any
less busy at home for the mogul,
as he and wife Mariah Carey are
expecting twins at any moment.
Clearly time management is a
priority for Cannon, but that isn’t
the only trait that helps him get
accomplish everything.
“Man, I just don’t sleep,” Can-
non admitted in a phone in-
terview which aired last Thurs-
day night on “The Ralphie Radio
Show.” The conversation was
taped Wednesday morning, as
Cannon traveled, presumably,
from his gig at New York’s 92.3
NOW-FM to TeenNick, where he
serves as chairman of the chan-
nel. “Literally, this is my nap
time right now, in the car going
to my next job.”
But Cannon isn’t complaining
about the long hours and copious
amount of responsibility. If any-
thing, it’s the exact opposite. The
personality says he feels
“blessed.”
“I’m too young to get burnt
out,” Cannon believes. “I’m not
outdoing myself. I’m not tired or
anything like that. I just love
what I do. I always say, ‘My
vocation is my vacation.’”
The hours he puts in are far
from vacation-like. Cannon re-
vealed that his day usually begins
well before the sun rises.
“On the average, I walk in to
the house around 9 (p.m.),” said
Cannon on the length of his usual
work day. “From there, it’s just
quality time with the wife or the
studio ’til I’m back up at 2
o’clock in the morning.”
By “studio” you could only
assume it’s of the recording va-
riety (as opposed to the radio
type), as Cannon readies not one,
but two albums. “Mr. Showbiz,”
a comedy LP, will drop May 14.
The follow-up, “Mr. Showbiz
Sings the Hits,” follows later in
the year. The rapper says both are
finished.
“It’s going to have ‘Famous’ on
it and a bunch of other stuff,”
Cannon noted of the music por-
tion, mentioning the lead single
that features Akon. “I worked
with Flo Rida, Snoop Dogg,
Roscoe Dash, everybody … Cee
Lo (Green) … it’s crazy.”
The first track is a tongue-in-
cheek take on everybody wanting
to achieve fame in this day and
age. But Cannon isn’t knocking
the notion.
“I love (fame),” Cannon quick-
ly replied after I asked him if the
notion of “celebrity” and fame is
overrated. “You got to just know
how to handle it. Everything’s in
moderation. Some people get
sucked up in to it, but I mean the
perks that it comes with are
beautiful.”
It seems these days, the only
thing not in moderation for Can-
non is the amount of work that he
is willing, and more importantly
able, to take on.
Cannon also chatted about the
difficulties he first encountered
when beginning his morning
radio show, and the contest he’s
currently running for the music
video to “Famous.” Podcast the
full interview now at 97bht.com,

e like controversy, even
if we don’t always admit
it. Alittle something
here and there to shake things up,
stoke the fire and get people
talking. The media is full of it.
The headlines screamout “Look
at who just got caught for this!”
and “Did you hear what so and so
has been doing for all these
years?” It’s the over-the-fence
conversation between neighbors
about the latest local gossip. It’s
almost an addiction of sorts,
sending our brains into a frenzy
with every daily paper on the
doorstep.
We love controversy.
In his newprovocative book,
“NEPATIZED!”, local author
Kenny Luck will be adding his
own fuel to the fire. Kicking off a
growing schedule of book sign-
ings, Luck will appear at Barnes
&Noble in downtown Wilkes-
Barre this Friday, April 8 from6-8
p.m. and next Friday, April 15
from6-9 p.m. at Borders in Dick-
son City.
“When you look closely and
locally, there’s a lot of interesting
things going on that you can apply
reason and abstract thinking to,”
Luck said. “It kind of yields an
interesting subject to look into.”
Covering a variety of topics
such as former Bishop Joseph
Martino, gas drilling in the north-
ern tier of Pennsylvania and
WILKradio host Steve Corbett,
“NEPATIZED!” deals with the
people and controversies of NE-
PA, and, according to Luck, how
things can change. Partially
fueled by personal disgust at
issues such as corruption and
nepotismin the area, Luck said he
wanted the book to focus on a few
fairly current issues that have
brought negative publicity to the
area as a way to open reader’s eyes
to a progressive way of thinking.
“I thought they were pretty
much the most important events
that happened,” he said. “They’re
certainly some of the most well
known —some of themhave
been national news. And I think
they’re really the events that have
come to define the area in a not so
good way.”
Luck feels that in order for
there to be a good government
and no corruption, people need to
become more intellectually hon-
est with themselves and start
changing their views. He said he
wanted the book to be provocative
in order to get people talking.
And according to Luck, it al-
ready has people talking.
Dropped by his first publisher
—who Luck did not want to
name —because they didn’t want
to take on a project like this, Luck
said he has also been taking a lot
of heat fromfamily members,
friends and professionals because
the book discusses a lot of public
figures. But this hasn’t deterred
Luck fromgoing through with the
publishing.
“I think a lot of this local stuff
gets ignored,” he said. “They
don’t want to hear it, but these are
the facts. I’mnot trying to be
negative, I’mjust being very
critical and abrasive.”
Despite the opposition he has
faced, Luck said no one has chal-
lenged any of the information in
the book as of yet, as it includes
nearly 300 footnotes with evi-
dence fromofficial documents
and interviews fromall sides of
the issues. He said the book
wasn’t meant to reflect his per-
sonal opinions, rather his in-
tellectual opinions, and he wanted
to offer up questions to readers as
a way to get themthinking. As
another means of trying to change
the way of thinking in NEPA,
Luck will also be hosting a new
radio showon WFTE FM(80.3
FMand107.5 FM) Sunday morn-
ings from11a.m.-noon.
With the book signings coming
quickly, Luck said he would like
not only those who agree with his
opinions to come to the signings,
but also those who disagree with
him, as he is always up for a good
debate. And while he said he will
stay modest about howwell the
book does, he hopes that people
do pick it up.
“It does concern all of us in the
area —what we do affects one
another. If you want to face reality
here, then read the book.” W

n Kevin Holohan’s debut
novel, “The Brothers’ Lot,”
the pious and rebellious
collide in order to bring forward
a satire of dysfunction, sadness,
and guilty laughs in the crum-
bling post-World War II setting
of Dublin, Ireland.
The novel depicts young stu-
dents at the Brothers of Godly
Coercion School for Young
Boys of Meager Means. An
outwardly devout priesthood
known as the Brotherhood con-
trols the Roman Catholic sec-
ondary institution like a well-
oiled machine — methodical
and oftentimes, insular. In spite
of their wicked behavior, when
the Brotherhood requires a mira-
cle, they find it in the most
unlikely of places.
The young students in the
novel are by no means angels.
In fact, they are rebellious and
full of mischief. However, the
novel’s main focus transitions
from a gloomy and dilapidated
atmosphere once Finbar Sullivan
is introduced. As the new boy at
Meager Means, Finbar has not
yet come to understand the ways
of the Brotherhood. He finds
himself alienated from the other
students, many who are full of
cynicism and scarred by leather
whippings.
The resistance of the young
students is well written in large
respect to Holohan’s own experi-
ence with Catholic school. Both
corporal punishment and the
trauma that ensued were aspects
that Holohan actually dealt with
as a student in a school similar
to Meager Means.
Religion, cultural identity and
rebellion are three of the main
thematic elements throughout
the novel. While the students are
taught to pride themselves on
their religion and Gaelic back-
ground, they cannot help but
question the force with which
the Brotherhood strikes. Reli-
gion in this sense is seen in a
hypocritical lens. The Brother-
hood as a cast of priests is
founded in hierarchy and yet,
behind their robes exist insecuri-
ties and tragic flaws.
On one occasion during class
one of the Brothers discusses
their founder, Venerable Saor-
seach O’Rahilly, an Irish priest
the Brotherhood is using every
last effort to push towards can-
onization. “There was no such
levity. The whole thing induced
in the boys a torporous waking
coma, a viscous thickening of
time that sapped all energy and
light from them and their imme-
diate surroundings.” The young
students, dealing with repression
on a daily basis, see the Broth-
erhood’s hypocrisy in desiring
O’Rahilly’s sainthood not for the
sole purpose of holiness, but
rather, status.
The struggle throughout the
novel pertains to how the stu-
dents are mistreated. Much of
the abuse goes unrecognized
due to their status as the lower
middle class. But, the corruption
of the Brotherhood becomes the
plight and later, fuel for the
students’ rebellion.

S
tories of King Arthur’s
quest for the Holy Grail,
the chalice used by Jesus at
The Last Supper, have been in
literature for centuries, but it took
the Monty Python comedy troupe
to make Arthur and his Knights
of the Round Table’s quest part
of pop culture. The six-person
troupe released “Monty Python
and the Holy Grail” in 1975, and
an instant, quotable classic was
born.
The movie spawned the Broad-
way musical, “Spamalot,” in
2005. Written by Python member
Eric Idle, “Spamalot” proved to
be just as addictive as the movie
itself: It won three Tony Awards,
including Best Musical, and was
seen by more than 2 million
people.
Local fans will get to go on the
quest — and see familiar faces
like Tim the Enchanter, The
Knights Who Say Ni and Patsy
— when “Spamalot” hits the
Scranton Cultural Center Friday,
April 8-Sunday, April 10. Show-
goers will also be introduced to
new characters like The Lady of
the Lake, played by Caroline
Bowman.
“She’s kind of the guardian
throughout the whole show,”
Bowman said from a tour stop in
Wichita, Kan. “She shows up
anytime they need help along the
way, and she directs them in the
right direction to find (Arthur’s)
destiny.”
While Bowman, 22, finds
“Spamalot” a “funny, brilliant”
musical, she wasn’t a big fan of
“The Holy Grail” movie.
“I’d seen clips of it before, and
I had friends who’d always quote
it, but I never really gave it a shot
until I had to,” she confessed. “I
find that I love it even more
because I love the musical so
much — maybe that’s just be-
cause I’m a musical-theater dork,
and I think music makes every-
thing better!”
“Spamalot” is said to raise
“silliness to an art form,” and for
Bowman, that’s what makes
being part of the show exciting.
“Oh my gosh, it is just so
rewarding every single night,”
she said. “When you get those
laughs, you try not come out of
character because in your head,
you’re so excited that they’re
reacting this way … they just eat
this up.
“No wonder it did so well on
Broadway — it’s just a show that
makes people happy. The other
day, we had a woman in the audi-
ence who was cackling she was
laughing so loud.”
Unlike more structured musi-
cals, the “Spamalot” cast works
with each other often to change
up the show.
“It’s one of those shows where
we can do that, so it never gets
old — it’s a perfect show to go
on tour with,” Bowman said.
While this is her first U.S.
Broadway tour, Bowman is no
stranger to life on the road: The
Glenwood, Md., native has trav-
eled to China with “Fame” and
Istanbul to play Rizzo in
“Grease.”
“Istanbul was beautiful, I never
would have thought to go there or
that it’s such a hot vacation spot,”
she said. “We performed in an
outdoor theater that was right on
the water, so every night, I’d step
out to sing ‘There Are Worse
Things I Could Do,’ and I’d be
looking at the moon wishing it
was more of a romantic song I
was singing,” she added, laugh-
ing.
For the actress, Istanbul was
more Americanized than China,
which she found was a “real
learning experience.”
“You’re really on the opposite
side of the world, (and) China
was a culture shock,” Bowman
began. “We had to adjust to that
and figure out how to live there,
’cause when we went into places,
nobody knew how to speak En-
glish, and we had to really figure
things out on our own.”
In the midst of such culture
shock, though, Bowman found
one place that felt right.
“You get into the theater, and it
was like home again every
night.” W

ost little girls loved play-
ing with Barbie dolls,
dressing them up and
seeing which pair of shoes and
which handbag matched each
outfit. Natalie Wilczynski, owner
of Bratty Natty’s in Kingston, did
not expect to be doing just that
the rest of her life and loving it.
“I love my customers, I love
seeing people every day, showing
them the new styles and just
basically working with people,”
says Wilczyncki. “I have a great
customer base. I have my regu-
lars, and it’s so much fun playing
dress up with them every day.
When my customers walk out of
here without spending so much
money, it makes me so happy.”
With the shop open just eight
months, Wilczynski was sur-
prised to have won Best Clothing
Boutique.
“I am just really grateful to be
compared to so many business-
es.”

It’s a real honor,” says Kevin Boylan, owner of Kevin’s Bar &
Restaurant in Kingston, of winning. “It shows that we’re obvi-
ously making an impression on the local restaurant scene.”
Kevin’s opened in September and features a menu ranging from
steak and oysters to chicken parmesan and spaghetti and meatballs.
With a cocktail lounge upstairs, a bar downstairs and private rooms
for parties, Boylan says the building has a great vibe and is a real fun
atmosphere.
As for their plaque, Boylan knows right where to put it.
“We want to hang it right where you come in so everyone will see
it.”

Charlie Sheen may
have made the word
“winning” a national trend,
but in our neck of the woods,
the first week of April has
always been about winning.
Well, winners, actually, be-
cause it’s time to announce the
winners of our annual Read-
ers’ Choice poll, which gives
our readers a chance to tell us
the people and places they
love in Northeastern Penn-
sylvania.
This issue is just the first
step in celebrating this year’s
winners — join us Wednes-
day, April 6 at 8 p.m. for the
Readers’ Choice Awards party
at Breaker’s inside Mohegan
Sun at Pocono Downs. DJ
Freckletone will be spinning,
and your winners will be win-
ning — hopefully a little bet-
ter than Mr. Sheen.

ome people express art
through painting, draw-
ing and even by gluing
random objects together on a
blank canvas. Rhiannon Wal-
lace of A Psychic Unicorn,
who won Best Tattoo Artist,
defines art in another way.
“I love it!” says Wallace.
“Tattooing is just another form
of art. I love painting and
drawing, but the skin is just
another way to show art. I
enjoy tattoos more now than I
did drawing. I never thought
that would be the case.”
Wallace, who has only been
in the tattoo industry for 3 1/2
years, was not expecting such
an award.
“It’s great because it’s the
voter’s choice,” says Wallace.
“It means a lot to me because I
haven’t been tattooing for long,
and I really appreciate it.”

ongressman Lou Barletta
brings home his second
Readers’ Choice award for
Best Politician, after tying with
Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom
Leighton last year.
“I feel very proud, and I’m
honored to accept this award
from the Weekender for another
year,” he says. “The award means
so much because it was the peo-
ple that made the selection.”
Formerly the mayor of Hazle-
ton, Barletta says he still has a
great relationship with the people
of Northeast Pennsylvania and is
thankful for their continued sup-
port. He plans to hang the plaque
either in his district office or his
personal office at home.

eneral Manager Kathi Bankes of Lucky’s Sporthouse is really excited for Lucky’s third consecutive
win for Best Sports Bar.
“We have a state-of-the-arts sports bar, 30 huge plasma TVs, 20 beers on tap, great service, and
our bartenders are knowledgeable in sports and can converse back and forth with the customers,” says
Bankes. “We keep winning because we treat our guest great. We love our fans, and we hope they keep on
voting for us.”
Bankes has been with Lucky’s Sporthouse since 2009.
“I love the people, the guests, the staff. I think I have the best staff in the valley. I love that we are not a
chain, and everything is made from scratch here.”

aving released his first solo album, “For What It’s Worth,” last May, Ronnie Williams is no stranger
to the music scene — he’s performed with bands such as Midnight Rain and Bad Hair Day.
“As I got older, I just wanted to pursue my career as a solo artist, so I just decided to start playing
the guitar and try to go up front.”
He is excited to have won this year’s Readers’ Choice for best solo musician, saying that it shows how
loyal fans can be and how much they like him.
“I just want to thank everybody for their support over the years and for voting for me.”

lison Schmidt is a late-blooming artist: She started painting at the age of 30.
“I was originally studying to be a science teacher, and some things occurred in my life,” Schmidt
says. “I always wanted to be an artist. I love making art. It is fantastic, and it felt like it was some-
thing I was always meant to do.”
Notorious for his bling, Flavor Flav usually wears an oversized clock around his neck; Schmidt plans on
doing the same with Weekender award.
“I have been joking with my friends that I was going to wear it like a necklace like Flavor Flav,” says
Schmidt. “I am so excited. It will probably go with my diplomas in my house, until I get a studio place.”

ave Ciminelli, chef and
owner of AuRants in
Duryea, describes his
restaurant as a place of fine food,
but with a very casual atmo-
sphere.
“It’s like a local watering hole,
and at the same time, a nice
sit-down restaurant.”
He plans to hang his plaque in
his office with other write-ups
and such he has collected about
AuRants. Ciminelli says he loves
what he does and is very thankful
for the loyalty of his customers.
“There are a lot of restaurants
out there and a lot of chefs by
far,” he says. “It’s something to
be proud of.”

Weekender General Manager
T
his is my year. I’m totally doing
it. I am beginning to separate
from my old ways, and I’ve
decided to start a whole new
me. This is very exciting. It’s almost too
much to take. This year, dare I say it, I
am investing in good sunglasses.
I’ll completely admit it. I have always
purchased really cheap sunglasses. Why
is that? Because I lose them. I break
them. I scratch the lenses. I sit on them.
All in all, I’m just really hard on my
sunglasses.
But I think it’s time to mature. I
think I need to start taking care of
my sunglasses, possibly even storing
them somewhere where they won’t
get destroyed. It will take some
concentration on my part, but I think I’m
up for the challenge.
Don’t get me wrong. Sometimes you
just need a pair of sunglasses from a gas
station. I see nothing wrong with this,
and I refuse to quit cold turkey. I like
aviator glasses, and every good truck
stop has a few pairs just waiting for me
to buy for $10. The secret is out of the
bag, but I don’t care. If they look good
on my face, I’m purchasing them. And
I’m not hung up over the thought of
someone noticing they’re not Christian
Dior. If someone is paying that close
attention to my shades, a serious hobby
might be in need.
So why do I want to invest in a better
pair of shades? Durability definitely
plays a factor. I’ve already admitted
I’m hard on my sunglasses, but in my
defense, they’re not actually made of the
finest materials either. In my mind, they
snap easier when shoving them into your
purse when you’re in a hurry. At least
that’s what I tell myself.
Secondly, I want real deal UV
protection. I only wear big sunglasses.
Sure, I love how they look, but I also
want to protect my eyes and all the skin
around my eyes from harmful rays. I do
not invite crow’s feet with open arms,
and I will do everything in my power to
prevent them from making an appearance
on my face. So small frames and lenses,
don’t waste your time. You won’t be
sporting your miniscule look on these
blues.
I’m very excited about this soon
purchase, especially because there are
so many great places locally to buy
really slick sunglasses. Buying them
online is OK, but I prefer trying on
my sunglasses and getting honest
feedback from store owners.
Check out some of the
places around town where
you can buy the hottest new
looks in sunwear. My hunt
has begun. I hope I find
some serious sales on designer
sunglasses as variety is my spice
of life and eight in every color
seems to fit me well.
Afew local places with great
selections of designer sunglasses:

pring has finally ar-
rived in NEPA. The
trees are budding, the
birds are chirping and snow-
storms will soon be a dis-
tant memory, at least for a
little while. For those of you
who are ready to break out
of the house and take in
some fresh spring air, a trip
to The Lands at Hillside
Farms may be just what you
need. Leadership Wilkes-
Barre is set to unveil a
brand new museum at the
farm Saturday, April 9 that
will take you on a 100-year
journey of the historic prop-
erty.
If you’ve never heard of
The Lands at Hillside Farms,
settled in the countryside of
Shavertown, it may surprise
you to know just how much
actually goes on there. Yes,
it may be the only remain-
ing processing dairy farm in
Luzerne County, but it’s not
just a farm. The 412-acre
property is utilized by
350,000 visitors each year
and has a calendar filled
with events for all ages.
“It’s really very extensive;
there’s more than meets the
eye,” said LWB member
Katrina Domkowski. “They
really utilize the property,
they even have summer
camps there.”
The Leadership class knew
it wanted to do something at
The Lands at Hillside Farms,
and with $5,000 in raised
funding, it went to the
farm’s board of directors to
offer its services. The farm
was full of antiques and
historic features that it
dreamed of highlighting, but
didn’t have the money to do
so. Converting a storage
barn into an educational
museum right on the proper-
ty to showcase this extensive
history was the ideal solu-
tion, and the “Mooseum”
project was born.
“The antiques on display
are genuine to the farm,”
Domkowski explained.
“There are five horse-drawn
carriages, a horse-drawn
winter sleigh, ice boxes, all
stuff that was used on or
made for the farm. Some
had to be restored, like the
show ribbons the farm had
won in the past, and some
things, like potato sacks,
they wanted kept in a rustic
condition.”
The museum is housed
within one of the farm’s
older barns, which needed a
little TLC from LWB and
the community to transform
it into the museum it is
now. More than 100 man
hours and in-kind donations,
in addition to the funds
raised by LWB, were needed
to tackle such a large pro-
ject. The barn was then di-
vided into four exhibits
showcasing antique carriages,
period farm equipment,
household Americana and
family relics of the original
owners, the Conyngham fam-
ily.
“It’s a big part of history
here,” Domkowski said. “Ev-
erything is authentic to the
farm or the family. There is
a legacy here, people can
come and see how life used
to be. It’s a true showcase
of what life was like 100
years ago.”
After eight months of hard
work, LWB is thrilled to
know that the public will
finally be able to enjoy the
new museum and get a bet-
ter education in one of the
few sustainable dairy farms
left in the area. They’re
proud of the work done and
the support they received
and are ready to show it off.
“There was so much com-
munity involvement,” Dom-
kowski began. “We had a
cap on funding we could
raise, but in-kind was unlim-
ited. We got about $20,000
in donations including the
electrical work, lighting, etc.
We want to show people
that it is easy to make a
difference in the area, once
you start, others start jump-
ing in to help.” W

‘Mooseum’ at Hillside Farms.

I
amno stranger to substance
abuse. I have seen it, up close
and personal. I don’t need an
education in street. Been there.
Done that. Got the scars, both
physical and emotional to prove
that.
The use of substances like bath
salts to get high is nothing new.
Maybe the compounds are, maybe
the strength and availability is.
But the search for something,
anything to take the pain of being
human away is far froma new
idea.
Indians ate peyote in 3000 B.C.
The use of beer, wine and other
alcohol based intoxicants? When
did that start? So far back that
recorded history has lost the re-
cord.
The Bible has a lot of wine
drinking going on back in the Old
and NewTestament days. Nowwe
can buy wine in vending ma-
chines, when they work. Pot? I
sawpeople smoking it in the
movie “The Ten Commandments”
or maybe it was “Cleopatra” but
that’s been around for a while too.
Better living through chem-
istry? Freud tooted a little blowin
the1800s. Hitler was a big fan of
meth. It was given to Panzer tank
crews and pilots in the Wehrmacht
to make themfight beyond their
normal capacity. LSDwas syn-
thesized and made a Swiss chem-
ist ride his bicycle down a rabbit
hole in1943.
Kids in my high school days,
and this was when birds had big
leather wings and dinosaurs ruled
the earth, huffed lighter fluid and
even gasoline in an effort to
achieve altered consciousness.
Caffeine, nicotine, nutmeg, ni-
trous oxide, toad? Snorting, in-
jecting, huffing, smoking, guz-
zling anything and everything.
It’s been done.
I even see where a suggested
use for bath salts is “rectally.” A
Google search of “bath salts drug”
yields about 1,030,000 results.
Sixty-three pages on my browser.
The top response: “Legal Drugs
Bath Salts: The Ultimate guide.”
The first itemis a “rant” that
concludes:
“If you ban the Bath Salt drug,
while leaving Alcohol and Tobac-
co legal, then there is something
wrong with the people making the
laws around this place.”
Nothing too ground shaking
there. But what I found interesting
was in the comments section, note
the dates:
Mark M***y says 02/14/2011at
10:46 a.m.:
“I don’t believe any of the scare
tactics being used all over the
country against the bath salts
MDPVand methylone, the media
has just run with rumors and each
news report exaggerates the hor-
rors of these two drugs even more
than the last. I bought a gram…
had to eat the entire gramof to get
a three-hour buzz and a lousy,
jumpy high. These two drugs are
too expensive to use to get high,
you’re better off buying a gramof
meth or cocaine.”

“Two people frommy town
have died fromthis in the past
week. And it has caused people to
go into permanent trips.”
Reply: victor.c says: 03/28/2011
at 6:31p.m.:
“Ayoung woman in the Pittston
area would beg to differ with the
popular vote of bath salts …un-
fortunately she drowned after two
young men beat her, gang raped
her, and threwher in a river …all
because of bath salts.”
The old joke goes: “Why did
God create whiskey? To keep the
Irish fromruling the world.”
The newjoke is not so funny.
Lawenforcement and the pow-
ers that be will ban bath salts.
Quite quickly someone will come
up with something new.
Dried banana peels? The real
problemwill once more be ig-
nored. What is so bad in life that
we have to clobber our conscious-
ness to blot it out? When we fig-
ure that out, and deal with the
underlying causes, bath salts will
be used for relaxing in tubs. W

A secret on the river
Clockwise from left, River Grille’s baked crab au gratin, broiled
calamari tubes stuffed with seafood mousse and seafood asparagus
risotto.
A
s the sun set magnificently over
the Susquehanna River one
recent Friday night, my partner-
in-crime Estevez and I were nestled in
a booth at the River Grille watching the
magic happen. It was just an added bonus
that our dinners were nearly as splendid
as the colorful backdrop, but I’m getting
ahead of myself.
Being that it was a Friday evening
during Lent, Estevez and I were in need
of a restaurant with ample non-meat
options, and after doing some online
menu stalking, River Grille more than fit
the bill, with entrees like ahi tuna, crab
cakes, salmon and the enticing tequila
lime sea scallops marinated in Jose
Cuervo tequila, sugar cane and fresh lime
juice that had me at Jose.
Estevez and I decided to start with
one of the evening’s appetizer specials,
broiled calamari tubes stuffed with
seafood mousse ($7.95), which we
thought sounded interesting.
While Estevez was leaning between
the seafood asparagus risotto and
the “Chef’s signature” crab cakes, I
was adamantly still all about those
aforementioned scallops — until I saw
the baked crab au gratin ($21.95). Who
was I to resist cheese and crab? After
much internal debate, Estevez decided to
go with the risotto ($23.95).
After taking our orders, our server,
Kristin A., delivered warm bread with
olive oil that calmed our ravenous bellies
until the calamari arrived. The three
small tubes were in a pool of savory
seafood sauce that played off the mousse
nicely; we could taste a little bit of
shrimp and crab in every bite. The tubes
themselves were so-so and without any
broiled crispness to them, which would
have made them a lot better, but Estevez
and I agreed that their stuffing was tasty.
Our included salads soon followed;
they were a decent size with mixed
greens, julienned carrots, cucumbers
and grape tomatoes. I opted for ranch
dressing, and Estevez couldn’t stop
raving about his raspberry vinaigrette.
Much to our delight, once we were
finished with our salad course (and an
extra helping of that warm bread), we
didn’t have to wait long for our entrees.
Estevez’s seafood asparagus risotto
consisted of an ample amount of shrimp,
scallops and lump crab meat amid
snappy asparagus and Arborio rice
simmered in a creamy seafood broth that
we both found absolutely delectable. The
seafood was fresh, and the scallops were
very meaty.
My baked crab au gratin
was incredible. The
jumbo lump
crab meat
was
sautéed in sherry cream and smothered
with Swiss cheese. The piping-hot
dish had huge chunks of crab and was
accompanied by a tasty bean medley
and mashed potatoes. At first, I was a bit
put off by its small crock, but halfway
through the cheesy wonderment that
was my dinner, I was glad that the dish
wasn’t any bigger — it would have been
too much of a good thing.
The River Grill is a great space in a
great location. The menu is as large as
its view of the river, and there are dozens
of specialty drinks and a broad wine
selection that is sure to please any palate.
Kristin could not have been more
friendly and knowledgeable about the
menu, and the food was truly great. I
think it’s safe to say that River Grille
might be one of the best kept secrets in
NEPAdining — a secret that I definitely
don’t mind
sharing. Check it out, you just might see

Weekender Editor
MAGROGAN’SFISH,
FINALLY
After nearly two years, Doc
Magrogan’s Fish Market &
Oyster House will finally open in
the former Kildare’s near The
Shoppes at Montage in Moosic
within the next fewweeks.
“Just the economy in general —
banks aren’t really lending to the
hotel and restaurant industry very
much,” owner Dave Magrogan
told Dish was the reason for the
hold up. “It was also just watching
the economy change and the
success of (The Shoppes).”
Magrogan had also been study-
ing the projected sales of his new
neighbor, LongHorn Steak-
house, to gauge the local econo-
my.
“They’ve done a good job,” he
stated. “So we feel the economy is
coming back around and consum-
er demand exists. We feel now
would be an appropriate time to
open a concept there. We really
think that this concept, a great,
fresh fish market with a great,
full-service restaurant, is address-
ing a need that’s not really ad-
dressed in this market right now.”
The Oyster House will serve
lunch and dinner with a variety of
seafood options, including an
extensive rawbar. In addition to
selling fresh fish, the market
component will also offer pre-
pared meals to take home.
“Because of our other two
locations, we’ve been able to
secure really good oyster con-
tracts with oyster growers around
the world, so we’re able to bring in
an oyster selection you wouldn’t
normally see in Pennsylvania,”
Magrogan explained. “It’s really
going to be focused on the fresh-
ness of the food, it’s not a deep-
fried seafood house, it’s a fresh,
healthy seafood house with the
ability to take stuff out at the
market.”
The Moosic location is Magro-
gan’s third for the Fish Market &
Oyster House, which joins loca-
tions in West Chester and Dover,
Del. Locally, Magrogan also owns
the Kildare’s at 119 Jefferson Ave.
and the space formerly occupied
by Molly Brannigans at 101
Adams Ave. in Scranton.
Magrogan told Dish in October
2009 that the Adams Avenue
space was going to be a Mexican
cantina, but aside fromopening
for the St. Patrick’s Day parade in
2010, the location has been va-
cant.
“We’re working with the city
right now, so I can’t really talk too
much about it, but we’re in talks
nowwith Mayor Doherty and
working out a solution on that as
well,” Magrogan said.
The restaurateur estimated that
Doc Magrogan’s will be open
from11:30 a.m.-11p.m. For more
info, visit docmagrogans.com.
CELEBRATING
HOMEBREWS
This weekend, Bart &Urby’s
(119 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre)
will hold a HomebrewCompeti-
tion and Beer Dinner.
“I’ve had this idea in my head
for a while and finally got to
acting on it,” said Carl Ach-
hammer, Bart &Urby’s bar
manager. “I’ve had a passion for
craft beers since my first craft
beer at the Black Rock Brewing
Co. about 10 years ago.
“This micro-brewery revolution
is here to stay, and there are so
many people brewing their own
stuff that I would like to get these
home beers some exposure and
popularity!”
The homebrewcompetition,
which will be judged Saturday,
April 9, is $10 to enter as many
beers as competitors would like
and free if attending Sunday’s
dinner. Judges include Bil Corco-
ran of Mybeerbuzz.com, Ach-
hammer, someone fromLion
Brewery and others. Competitors
can bring two bottles of at least 12
oz. to the restaurant Thursday,
April 7 or Friday, April 8 from4-7
p.m. The beer must be labeled
with the name and phone number
of the entrant, the name of the
beer and which category it should
be entered in (for categories or
more info, e-mail Carl at bnu-
carl@gmail.comor call
570.970.9570). The “Best Beer of
Show” will have a batch brewed
by Breaker Brewing Co. of
Plains Twp. to be put on draft at
Bart &Urby’s and Krugel’s Ge-
orgetown Deli.
“I will consider it to be a great
honor to sell this beer daily as it
will be the one will that blows our
taste buds away,” Achhammer
said.
The beer dinner will be Sunday,
April 10 at 1p.m. Cost is $60 per
person; final payment is due
Thursday, April 7 by 9 p.m., and
no walk-ins accepted.
Chef Sean Rogan will offer
heirloomtomato summer vegeta-
ble taurine finished with blueber-
ry chili oil paired with Weyer-
bacher Merry Monks; pis-
tachio-encrusted pork medallions
with fig chipotle aioli topped with
seasoned parsnip ribbons and
Ithaca Apricot Wheat; crab
fondue topped with roasted corn
salsa paired with Breaker Brew-
ing Co.’s Special Goldie’s; pan-
roasted chicken on golden pomme
de terre puree with blood orange
sauce and Victory Headwaters
Pale Ale; hashed potato fritters
stuffed with chive and mascar-
pone cheese topped with roasted
red pepper coulis with Stegmaier
Summer Stock Pilsner and
doughnut and espresso soup
paired with Special Edition
Long Trail Coffee Stout.
“The experience of newfood,
newbeer and newpeople always
make these dinners special,” said
Achhammer. “And our pairings
push the envelope sometimes, so
this is the place to be if you want
to get out of the mundane, mass-
marketed fizz beer mode for a
day.”
Achhammer said another beer
dinner/homebrewcontest will be
held Saturday, June 4 in conjunc-
tion with the season opening of
Bart &Urby’s deck. For more
info, call 970.9570. W

sorry mom&dad
By Justin Brown
Weekender Correspondent
D
ear Mom & Dad,
One Tuesday night near
the end of the fall 2007
semester, when it was cold, mi-
serable and pouring rain, the
bars in my college town were
dead.
“This is lame,” asserted my
friend Jaime as we were one
Jagerbomb, two shots of tequila
and three Long Island Iced Teas
deep. “Let’s go to Denny’s and
get nachos.”
“Only if we dine and dash,” I
answered. “Hopefully, that will
at least make this night more
interesting.”
When we arrived at Denny’s,
we were greeted by our waitress,
Tiffany. She waited on us the last
time we walked out on our bill.
And, the time before that, too!
Young and stupid, we decided
third time’s a charm and fully
intended on executing our plan.
Over nachos, pickles, French
fries and a chocolate milkshake,
Jaime and I babbled about the
bullshit going on in our lives.
While Jaime whined over her
cashier job at a discount depart-
ment store, I was grieving a
more pressing issue: An annoy-
ing roommate!
“I wish I never moved out on
Eddie,” I confessed to Jaime.
Eddie was my roommate for
two years. He was a great friend
who always had my back. But
when his girlfriend “unofficially”
moved in, I started to feel like I
was getting in their way, and the
apartment lost our bachelor-pad
vibe. So, I decided to move into
an apartment two doors down
with one of my fraternity broth-
ers and some transfer student we
found to make the rent cheaper.
After a weekend of living
together, my fraternity brother
and I got into a huge fight that
caused him to move out. Now I
was stuck living with Joe, the
transfer kid I didn’t even know
well.
“I hate Joe,” I vented. “Not
only does he chain smoke, but I
walked in on him putting a con-
dom on the other day; when he
was alone! Was he about to
masturbate with a condom on?
Who masturbates with a condom
on? Okay, I have once. But what
are the odds that was his first
time?”
“You need to move out,” Jaime
insisted.
“Well, I applied to be an intern
at ‘The Soup’ on E! for next
semester,” I confided. “I doubt
I’ll get it, but if I do, that won’t
be far enough away from Joe.”
After stuffing our faces and
talking shit, we decided to call it
a night and head home. When
we noticed our waitress wasn’t in
plain sight, we dashed out of
their, making our way to the
parking lot.
Laughing our asses off that we
pulled this with the same wait-
ress a third time, we made our
way to Jaime’s car. While peal-
ing out of our parking spot in a
hurry, we hit a car head on!
Cue the snowball effect: Si-
multaneously, Jaime got out of
the car to address the situation
with the screaming driver of the
other vehicle, I opened the door
to throw up nachos and a choco-
late milkshake since my seatbelt
practically gave me the Heimlich
upon impact, and the manager of
Denny’s ran outside screaming
that we didn’t pay our bill while
waving it in the air. Only me!
The police were called, and we
were arrested.
Sorry that I got arrested for
running out on the bill at Den-
ny’s. And I’m sorry we pulled
the same trick on the same wait-
ress repeatedly. I did get caught,
and I did learn my lesson. You
should be happy to know I
haven’t dined and dashed since.
Although, the day following the
incident, I did receive a call from
E! Entertainment that caused me
to dash …
Your son,

“The car actually belonged to my grandmother
and grandfather,” Jablonski shares. “He always
liked to drive a big Chevrolet. It only had 62,000
miles on it when they gave it to me. I’ve been
trying to keep it in pristine shape. I’ve probably
had it for about 25 years now.” W

scooter girl
By Jayne Moore
Weekender Correspondent
F
or many people, the first
sign of spring is the red-
breasted robin singing on
the lawn. In Pennsylvania, how-
ever, the real first sign of thaw
and warming up are the pot-
holes. It is often said that in Pa.,
there are two seasons: winter
and construction. The sure sign
that we are moving from winter
season to construction season is
the inevitable pothole! Pothole
patching is one construction
event that starts even if it is cold
and rainy. Right now begins
PennDOT’s joint-and-crack
patching. According to Penn-
DOT’s Maintenance First bro-
chure, “Crack sealing is done
from April to July, while joint
sealing is done from September
through November. This time
frame is utilized because this is
when joints are fully open.”
This is the type of mainte-
nance that you will be seeing in
the coming weeks. The big
PennDOT trucks will be trading
in their snow plows for highway
repair components. Next week’s
column will take a look at what
work goes on behind the barriers
of the work zones we will be
inundated with once that final
frost is over and crews can get
back to work on the construction
season that is imminent.
The picture in this week’s
column shows the collection of
hubcaps that have been piling up
by my driveway since pothole
season commenced this year.
The numbers have dropped since
they fixed the giant crater that
ate my rim and brand new tire
early in March. The hole was so
large and in such a place that
you couldn’t see it (even know-
ing it was there, I hit it), that
people were hitting it all day
long. You’d actually hear the
bang of the car as it was at-
tacked by the pot hole. And my
house is 1,000 feet from the
road. Trust me, it was a very
large pot hole.
While this patching was left to
the Jackson Twp. crew who did
a great job, PennDOT will ac-
tually be responsible for the
larger state roads. The beginning
of the week saw road crews out
sweeping the side of the roads to
remove the anti-skid that is
wonderful in the winter’s snow
and ice, but not so nice for
motorcycle tires as they act very
much like marbles when you rid
over them and can cause a mo-
torcyclist to slide or drop his
bike when they are run over,
especially going around curves.
If you’ve lived in NEPA for
any length of time, you have
probably heard of the term “coal
patching.” This process is also
used to fill up those lovely pot-
holes. The concept is rather like
a temporary filling the dentist
might place in your tooth till
more intense work can be done.
The process is to take bitu-
minous or soft coal and mix it
with some sort of tar-like sub-
stance and then fill the holes
only and not actually pave the
road surface. This is a stop-gap
measure used while the temper-
atures are still fluctuating and
the road is expanding and con-
tracting more often. This keeps
your car from being lost in pot-
holes the size of major mine
subsidence and is usually cov-
ered over if the road is repaved
over the summer.
PennDOT also cleans up the
sides of the road as well as our
local guys. Shoulder cutting’s
brochure says this about the
process: “Shoulder cutting re-
moves excess soil and debris
from unpaved shoulder areas.
This improves drainage and
allows water to leave the road-
way.” Shoulder grading is the
follow-up to the shoulder cutting
activity, the rationale for this is,
according to their publicity
piece, “PennDOT grades shoul-
ders to eliminate the drop-off
between the roadway and the
shoulder and to allow water to
drain away from the road sur-
face. If ruts are allowed to form
and remain on the shoulder,
water can enter and damage the
edge of the pavement.”
If you want to learn more
about what types of Mainte-
nance PennDOT does, please
check out their website at
www.dot.state.pa.us
Having cleared shoulder areas
is one of those things you don’t
think about until you either have
to pull over or start to slide out.
Unobstructed shoulders allow
for safer exit from traffic lanes
for all vehicles though very
importantly to motorcycles.
As we move into the riding
season, know that not only does
your bike need to be brought up
to speed with maintenance, so,
too, do our roads. Ride safe and
keep your eyes on the road. W

PIT BULL MIX
The Gamer
By Dale Culp
Weekender Correspondent
I
n the Exposition Hall at PAX
East was a line of booths
called Indie Alley. This was
where independent game devel-
opers developers who fund and
publish games on their own —
were gathered to show off their
upcoming projects. There, among
the PC, iPhone and Xbox 360
indie developers, was a developer
from Toronto named Shawn
McGrath who was showing off a
game he was working on for the
PlayStation 3 called “Dyad,” an
abstract, futuristic take on racing
games.
“Dyad” is part racing game,
part shooter and part puzzle game
all rolled into one. You shoot
down a tube, accelerating by
latching onto other vehicles and
pulling yourself forward. As the
game progresses, the rules
change a bit, but the same basic
idea still applies. The concept is
simple, but challenging. It’s also
very pretty.
The visual style of “Dyad” is
like racing through a music vi-
sualizer with glowing lines and
objects that shimmer in a variety
of colors. Your vehicle is kind of
an amorphous blob with tentacles
that reach out in multiple direc-
tions and are used to latch onto
the other vehicles. It’s a very
stunning game to look at, and you
could almost get lost in the hyp-
notizing patterns of color and
light. But it wasn’t only the visual
style that was drawing the crowd,
it was something else McGrath
brought with him: A very special
peripheral to help further im-
merse yourself in the game.
Standing next to McGrath was
a large machine cobbled together
from bits of metal, wood and
various car parts found in a junk
yard. It looked like someone had
mounted the chair from a race car
to a Bowflex Home Gym and
then attached a movie screen and
projector to the front of it. Of
course that someone was
McGrath himself.
The machine is a motion sim-
ulator, designed to give the player
a feeling of rotating through the
tubes at high speed by physically
tilting the player left and right.
On the screen — made from a
bed sheet — is a projection of the
game that tilts with the rest of the
rig as the player races through the
game. Mounted to the bottom of
the machine was a motor with an
offset weight that would spin
whenever the player hit an obsta-
cle, causing the whole thing to
shake.
McGrath said it had taken him
six weeks to build the rig. In
contrast, it had taken him two
years to develop “Dyad,” the
game he invented it for. When
asked why he built the rig, he
simply says, “I got tired of pro-
gramming the game and just
wanted to work on something
else for a while.” He also built it
as a way of competing with other
developers at the Penny Arcade
Expo for some much needed
attention.
When you’re surrounded by the
likes of Microsoft, Sony and
Nintendo, who each can afford to
put on a big show to draw the
crowd, you have to do something
to stand out. This machine was
McGrath’s “something,” and
judging by the crowd of gamers
gathered round it, it was working.
Even I couldn’t wait to try it out.
As I sat down and strapped
myself in, I wasn’t sure what I
was in for. Thankfully, McGrath
had asked that everyone who
wanted to try out the machine go
through a “training” session first,
just to learn how to play the game
so they wouldn’t be trying to
figure it out while the machine
was kicking them sideways and
shaking them. The few minutes
of training while standing on
solid ground definitely came in
handy.
A few moments later and it
was all over. I thanked McGrath
for the chance to try out his ma-
chine and to play his game before
it launches on PlayStation Net-
work later this year.

game and the machine in action,

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)
You do know that you’re my favorite,
right? Sure, I love Scorpios almost as
much as you, but the truth is, I find you
just as exciting, fun, sexy, and dynamic
— and much easier to be around. Some-
times you have to deal with people who
aren’t quite as thrilled as I am to have
you close by, day in and day out, but
surely not during your birthday season!
In any case, minimize your contact with
such losers and concentrate the bulk of
your attention on your adoring fans.
We’ll respond in kind, I promise.
TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)
Hardly anyone wins the lottery, mostly
because so many people play. Ironically,
if few played, it’d hardly be worth play-
ing — since it’s the money from all
those non-winning tickets that makes the
jackpot so big. The same goes for what-
ever you’re involved with; as more peo-
ple take part, it’ll only get better, more
successful, and worthwhile. However,
you’ll also get a smaller share of the
success — if considered purely in terms
of financial gain or notoriety. If, however,
you measure success in how many peo-
ple’s lives you improve, how much beau-
ty you create, or how much stronger the
connections are between you and those
around you, it’ll likely score off the
scale.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
Everyone occasionally falls out with a
friend. Most of the time, circumstances
allow for mending those fences and res-
toring harmony between you, but some-
times (as when the fight precedes a dis-
tant relocation, or a death), there’s little
to no chance to work things out, and a
crack can widen into an unbridgeable
gulf. This is a good week to fix things
up with someone you’re not okay with.
Don’t wait. Hopefully neither of you will
die in the next week, but you’ve put off a
resolution too long already. Hop on Face-
book or the phone and reach out, already.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)
You don’t need to process everything.
Some things (like your kids or roommate
walking in on you having sex) are best
simply never spoken of again, so every-
one can basically pretend it never hap-
pened and put it behind them. Before
you open your mouth, ask yourself what
good could possibly come out of rehash-
ing something, and how likely that’ll
outweigh all the awkwardness or misery
of having to talk it over. Nine times out
of 10 this week, you (and all those in-
volved) will actually be better off if you
simply change the subject and move on.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)
Generosity is one of your strengths,
but like all strengths, it can be a weak-
ness. Being bighearted and giving is
wonderful; playing doormat/ATM — not
so much. You don’t want to ever cross
over into being stingy, petty, or rude,
always err on the side of being magnani-
mous. But this week you’ll need to dem-
onstrate that you’re able to draw a line
somewhere, and stick to it. Trust your
gut here; it won’t steer you wrong. If
someone steps across that line, don’t be
mean—but do gently push them back to
where they need to be.
VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)
Different people process grief, stress or
anger differently. Never interfere in such
a process unless it’s causing (or likely to
cause) serious, lasting harm to someone.
If it’s simply unpleasant or inconvenient,
suck it up and back off—for a good long
while, anyway. It’s hard to imagine what
others experience when shit happens to
them, and just because they’re not coping
the way you would doesn’t give you the
right to butt in. This week keep this in
mind: Offering to help is always wel-
come, but forcing your “help” on some-
one almost never is.
LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)
The life of the party can also be the
party-killer. I had a friend who was con-
sistently funny and entertaining — conse-
quently, no one else could shine when he
was around. People felt reluctant to in-
terrupt his witty monologue with some-
thing that would probably be less clever
or well-delivered than whatever he hap-
pened to be saying. I never did this, but I
wish someone had taken him aside and
said, “You’re a delight and all, but every
10 minutes or so, shut up for five min-
utes just to see if anyone else would like
a turn in the spotlight.” Naturally, no one
could diplomatically deliver such a mess-
age better than you Libras. If you know
someone like this, please do — even if
that person is yourself!
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)
I try to never shut any door complete-
ly. Sure, some are wedged closed pretty
tightly, but I like to think that even those
could be reopened if someone on the
other side wanted it badly enough (and
said the right things). You should em-
ulate my practice. Sure, right now you
may want to lock the door shut on this
chapter and throw away the key, but life
is change, and limiting yourself in such a
way is rarely a good thing. Naturally, you
don’t have to open that door if someone
comes knocking somewhere down the
line, but you ought to at least give it
some open-minded consideration.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
You talk a big game, but can you live
up to it? Or are you simply getting
caught up in the moment, and saying shit
you don’t mean, or won’t feel tomorrow?
That’s called leading someone on, and
it’s mean. This is about self-knowledge. I
doubt you’re deliberately deceiving peo-
ple. However, check what’s coming out
of your mouth and make sure it’s some-
thing you’ll want and be able to stick to
down the line—before you say it. Other-
wise, you’re just setting someone up for
disappointment, cynicism, and even bit-
terness. Things change, sure, but if you
know yourself well, you can accurately
gauge how likely that’ll be, before you
get someone’s hopes up about something
that probably won’t happen.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)
If you add too much hot sauce to food
it obscures the taste or even makes it
inedible. Too little, of course, might
prove too boring or bland for those you’d
like to please. Naturally, I’m not talking
about your cooking, but the way you
present yourself to people. Trying too
hard is like making a dish too spicy to
eat. However, don’t try hard enough, and
people will move on. This week is all
about discovering the right amount of
effort that’ll allow your full flavor to
shine, without coming off as desperate or
affected. It’s a tricky line to walk, so
enlist whatever unbiased help you can
get.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)
You rarely ask to be the star of the
show, but sometimes you’re just the best
person for the role, and you get stuck
with it, like it or not. Don’t waste a lot
of time trying to get out of it, or sabo-
taging yourself. You’re here because
you’re supposed to be; now it’s your job
to simply try to live up to what people
expect of you. That’s easier said than
done, but at the end of the day, you need
to trust that you’re not the least bad of a
bunch of terrible options, but actually the
best of a number of truly good ones.
PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)
Don’t give away too much power.
There’s a way to be honest and authentic
without necessarily throwing all the balls
into someone else’s court and waiting for
them to make a play. Don’t race to the
destination and be forced to wait for
anyone to catch up. There are games and
there games. There’s a time for throwing
all your cards on the table, but generally
it’s not right after they’ve been dealt.
When it’s truly time, you’ll know. Until
then, be genuine, and meet someone
halfway to wherever you both want to go
— but don’t go much further. W
