quite different from England’s,
hmm?
Back on our side of the pond,
there is a lot going on in this
week’s issue, from interviews
with Taking Back Sunday (p.
24) and the Sheriff’s Office in
“Scooter Girl” (p. 56) to the
unveiling of this year’s Concert
For ACause T-shirts (p. 43).
Turn the page, won’t you?
And thanks for reading!

I don’t know about you, but I
am kind of excited about seeing
all the upcoming coverage of
“The Royal Wedding” of Prince
William and Kate Middleton
Friday, April 29.
One of my favorite guilty
pleasures is reading celebrity
magazines like In Touch, so
I’ve been eating up everything
about the royal couple for the
past few months. They’re just so
glamorous and seem genuinely
in love, so what’s not to love?
I certainly am not one of those
crazies who’d travel across the
Atlantic to try to catch a glimpse
of the procession, and I certainly
won’t buy any of the gewgaws
associated with the wedding
— things like salt-and-pepper
shakers, bobbleheads or, for
whatever reason, the toilet seat
cover I just found online — but
it’s just nice to see something
happy in the news for once.
I chalk part of my excitement
up to my desire to have an
English accent, but truth be told,
I’m glad that “Wills and Waity
Katie” will soon take over the
covers of those rags from the
train wrecks of “Teen Mom”
or whatever other reality-show
skank the magazine powers that
be decide to showcase. Looks
like our version of royalty is

news of the weird
By Chuck Shepherd
Weekender Wire Services
POOR DESIGNS
Businesses typically resist
government regulation, but in
March Florida’s interior design-
ers begged the state House of
Representatives to continue con-
trolling them, with a theatrically
ham-handed lobbying campaign
challenging a deregulation bill.
Designers righteously insisted
that only “licensed professionals”
(with a minimum six years of
college and experience) could
prevent the nausea Floridians
would suffer from inappropriate
color schemes (affecting the
“autonomic nervous system” and
salivary glands). Also, poorly
designed prison interiors could
be turned into weapons by in-
mates. Furthermore, deregulation
would contribute to “88,000
deaths” a year from flammable
materials that would suddenly
inundate the market in the ab-
sence of licensing. Said one
designer, addressing House com-
mittee members, “You (here in
this chamber) don’t even have
correct seating.” (If deregulation
is successful, competition will
increase, and lower fees are ex-
pected.)
CULTURAL DIVERSITY
-- The longstanding springtime
culinary tradition of urine-soaked
eggs endures, in Dongyang,
China, according to a March
CNN dispatch. Prepubescent
boys contribute their urine (ap-
parently without inhibition) by
filling containers at schools, and
the eggs are boiled according to
recipe and sold for the equivalent
of about 23 cents each. Many
residents consider the tradition
gross, but for devotees, it repre-
sents, as one said, “the (joyous)
smell of spring.”
-- In January, while the Texas
Legislature debated budget cuts
that would almost certainly cost
Allen High School (just north of
Dallas) at least $18 million and
require layoffs of teachers and
other school personnel, construc-
tion was continuing on the
school’s new $60 million football
stadium. Noted a New York
Times report on the stadium
(which 63 percent of voters ap-
proved in a 2009 bond referen-
dum), “(O)nly football super-
sedes faith and family (among
Texans).”
LATEST RELIGIOUS
MESSAGES
-- Former stripper Crystal
Deans, who said she learned the
trade at age 18 but later retired
and turned to God for help
through a rough patch of her life,
now offers free pole-dancing
classes in Spring, Texas, near
Houston, expressly for Christian
women. Her gyrations may be
the same as when she was work-
ing, she said, but now everyone is
clothed, and she dances only to
“Christian music.”
-- Youth pastor Brent Girouex,
31, was urged to confess by his
minister in Council Bluffs, Iowa,
in February to an apparently
lengthy series of sexual experi-
ences with boys and young men,
which he initiated by suggesting
that ejaculating would help the
victims gain “sexual purity” by
(as he explained to detectives)
“getting rid of the evil thoughts
in their mind.” Eight victims
reported multiple purification
sessions, with one estimating as
many as 100.
QUESTIONABLE
JUDGMENTS
-- For Career Day in April at
Shady Grove Elementary School
in Henrico, Va., kids heard a
local plastic surgeon describe his
specialty, but not until afterward
did parents learn that the surgeon
had brought along as props saline
breast implants (which he passed
around for the kids to handle).
Many parents were outraged, and
even one calmer parent com-
mented, “Career Day sure isn’t
what it once was.”
-- The End Is Near, But How
Near? In March in Owensboro,
Ky., James Birkhead, 52, was
sentenced to 5 1/2 months in jail
for making survivalist bombs to
protect his family after he be-
came alarmed by the movie
“2012,” which portrays the chaos
expected next year when the
world ends (as supposedly fore-
told by the Mayan calendar). By
contrast, Edwin Ramos of Vine-
land, N.J., is busy traveling the
East Coast in his RV trying to
warn people that the end will not
be in 2012 but actually May 21,
2011. (The discrepancy would not
exist if there had been a biblical
year “0” after B.C. and before
A.D.) Ramos’ father apparently
does not share his son’s view
because he accepted ownership
of Ramos’ successful construc-
tion business as Ramos conclud-
ed that it had no future.
-- Marie Stopes International is
a prominent London charity that
robustly promotes a woman’s
right to choose abortion, but a
whimsical public service cam-
paign in January has created
unusually savage criticism. The
organization partnered with the
British comedy music band The
Midnight Beast to produce a
video suggesting anal sex as a
contraceptive of choice. Among
the lyrics of one song, “One up
the bum, and it’s no harm done/
One up the bum, and you won’t
be a mum.”
LEAST COMPETENT
CRIMINALS
-- A man stole Waltham,
Mass., student Mark Bao’s note-
book computer in March, but
Bao used his automatic online-
backup service to access the hard
drive while the thief was using it,
to discover a performance video
of a man (presumably the thief)
dancing (lamely, thought Bao) to
a pop song. Bao uploaded the
video to YouTube — where
700,000 viewers showed it the
proper disrespect — and also
tracked down the thief’s e-mail
address and informed him of his
new Internet “stardom.” Shortly
afterward, the still-unidentified
thief turned in the notebook to
Bentley University police with an
apology to “Mark,” begging him
to take down the video.
NAMES IN THE NEWS
-- Arrested in Aurora, Colo., in
January and charged with stalk-
ing his wife: Joseph Moron.
Appointed to a senior executive
position in January in the global
communications firm Alcatel-
Lucent: George Nazi. Arrested
for dealing marijuana in March
in Fairfax County, Va.: Kevin Lee
Cokayne. Appointed as interim
chief medical officer of Newhall
Memorial Hospital in Santa
Clarita, Calif., in March: Dr.
Richard Frankenstein. Arrested
for DUI in April by a California
Highway Patrolman (“CHiP”):
Eric Estrada (not the actor).
Posthumously rejected as the
namesake for the new govern-
ment office center in Fort Wayne,
Ind., in March: former Fort
Wayne Mayor Harry Baals (pro-
nounced “bales” by his descend-
ants but always “balls” by Mr.
Baals, himself).

Music on the menu
By Alan K. Stout
Weekender Music Columnist
A
bsolution was one of the
dozens of local bands
that were scheduled to
perform at The Woodlands on
April 27 as part of “Concert For
A Cause 9.” But about six
weeks ago, the group sent its
apologies and gave word that it
wouldn’t be able to make it.
The reason? A very good
one: A U.S. tour with national
act Taproot. And the timing
couldn’t have been any better, as
it coincides with the release of
the local hard-rock band’s new
album, “The Other Side Of
Nothing,” which hits stores on
May 3.
Absolution vocalist Mark
Wojtkiewicz says the group
found out in early March that it
had been tapped to hit the road
with Taproot. And so far, so
good.
“Originally, it was 17 dates,
and it was mainly the West
Coast,” says Wojtkiewicz, call-
ing from Washington state. “But
Taproot are very, very busy
people. They just keep stringing
dates and stringing dates, so
what started out as 17 dates
turned into 36 or 37.”
Wojtkiewicz says it’s a new
experience for Absolution, as
the band is traveling through
clubs, cities and even states that
it has never visited before. He
adds, however, that the members
of Taproot have been hospitable.
“They all real cool guys,” he
says. “They’ve been doing it for
10 or 11 years, so they’re kind
used to keeping to themselves
and doing their own thing, and
so do we. But they’re super
nice. We’re on same team,
which kind of makes us feel at
home and at ease. And it takes
the brunt away from being this
far away from home, because
they are so nice and they are so
open to helping us out.”
Formed in 2005, Absolution
also features guitarist and vocal-
ist Jay Green, bassist Brian
McDonald, drummer and vocal-
ist Tom Godin and guitarist Will
Perna. “The Other Side of Noth-
ing” will be released to all Gal-
lery of Sound stores, Wayne’s
World and online sites such as
iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon.
It was recorded at the group’s
own Side B Studios in Dorrance
and was produced by Godin. It
is a follow up to the group’s
previous efforts, “Surfacing”
and “Theory of Existence.”
Wojtkiewicz says that the
band — now with a few years
under its belt, lots of recording
and playing live and some
tweaks to its lineup — has truly
found its groove.
“We’ve really established our
sound with this album,” he says,
adding that the biggest differ-
ence for him on the new CD is
that he did the entire album
sober. After battling addiction,
he says sobriety has made him a
better musician and person.
“That was an eye-opener, to
say the least,” he says. “I’d done
everything before, not obliterat-
ed, but always under the influ-
ence of alcohol. And though I
didn’t want a huge theme of the
album to be about being sober
and going through that, it is a
story to tell. It is who I am
now. I had to learn how to not
go to the alcohol to get away
from problems or deal with
miscommunications between
anybody in the band and my-
self. That was a year and a half
ago that I decided that, and I
can say I’m a completely differ-
ent person. More focused. It
saved my life.”
Wojtkiewicz says two tracks
on the CD, “Dry County” and
“Bloodstone” were inspired by
that journey.
And while the group’s main
influences such as Sevendust,
Deftones and Nonpoint continue
to inspire, he says the band tried
to remain influence-free during
the sessions.
“We just kind of put blinders
on and said what we wanted to
say, instead of following a
trend,” he says. “We’re trying to
stick to what we want to do.
The Avenged Sevenfolds are out
there, and that’s them. We don’t
want to really copy them. We
want to make our own thing.
We know if we jump on a trend
that’s going now, by the time it
actually gets recorded, mixed
and mastered and put out there,
it’s going to be last week’s style.
So we try and just keep doing
what we do.”
Fans of the band will be able
to hear exactly what they do on
May 3 when the CD drops.
Wojtkiewicz says he knows fans
have been itchy for some new
material, as the CD has been
two years in the making. But he
thinks they will be pleased.
“People have been patient, so
I hope the wait was a good
payoff for them,” he says. “I
hope it stands the test of what
they think Absolution is, will be
and what they wanted out of
Absolution themselves as a fan.
I would hope that everybody
that’s been waiting this long is
still going to be here to support
what we’re doing and this next
big phase for the band. We all
really appreciate them sticking
with us.” W
Absolution, which is currently on tour with Taproot, will
release its new CD Tuesday, May 3.

Comebacks and expectations can be
a tough thing to deal with. Yellowcard
knows this all too well, disappearing
after having great success and becoming
just another band lost to obscurity —
until now with “When You’re Through
Thinking, Say Yes.”
The recent hiatus didn’t affect the
group at all, and its familiar sound comes
flooding back with opening track “The
From his all-too-brief work with the
Drive-By Truckers to his new project
— keepers of the classic Muscle Shoals-
country grit ’n’ soul soup The 400 Unit
— Jason Isbell has kept his focus on
sincere, bare-bones Southern storytelling.
Isbell’s songwriting is on par with
defining roots music tunesmiths like
John Prine, but also takes in the scope
of illustrative masters like Bob Dylan
laced with the earthen charisma of Tom
Petty and the contemporary Americana
of Ryan Bingham. “Here We Rest” is
Steve Earle is an artist whose
music has always been a little
difficult to classify, and his
latest album, “I’ll Never Get
Out of This World Alive,” is no
exception. While the twangy
guitars and slow, rolling tempo
would lead many a casual
listener to label Earle’s music
as “country,” the addition of
rock ’n’ roll rebellion and social
consciousness means that his
music has much more in common
with the protest rock of the 1960s
than it does with the modern
clean-and-polished Nashville
scene.
Throughout most of the album,

Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit
“Here We Rest”
Sound of You and Me.” It’s an ideal
opener paced by aggressive guitar and
drum work. Although Sean Mackin’s
violin isn’t heard until midway through
the track, it’s well worth the wait. The
band slows down for a huge build-up,
and a classic Yellowcard breakdown
— foot-stomping guitar bursts over
grandiose violin — carries the song out.
The record continues with a string of
captivating songs. “For You, and Your
Denial” and “With You Around,” which
has the album’s best hook, can easily be
compared to the band’s “Ocean Avenue”
days.
“Hang You Up” is a heartfelt tune that
is an excellent pathway into the best part
of the record. “Life of Leaving Home,”
“Hide” and “Soundtrack” are the three
most impressive tracks. They seem to get
stronger as each song progresses, and the
instrumental intensity is at a high.
Yellowcard’s chemistry and cohesion
ultimately separates them from their
peers and puts them at an elite level. To
say this is the band’s best work would
be a stretch, but that argument should
be irrelevant. Yellowcard returned with
something new and old fans can enjoy,
perfecting a sound that is uniquely their
own. This is the best record the band
could make at this time; it highlights the
group’s past records, and is a great lead-
in to future releases..

impassioned, dirt-road traveled gold.
Isbell waxes homesick, with visions
of “driving through Talladega on a
weekend in October,” amid the gentle
Appalachian acoustic fiddle flourishes
in “Alabama Pines.” The charged, Keith
Richards-by-way-of The Heartbreakers’
Mike Campbell staccato guitar gnawing
on “Go It Alone” is a potent standout, the
slow drive of the track reveals how tight
Isbell’s road-tested band has become in
its three years together.
Isbell’s brittle, introspective tendencies
run amok in “Daisy Mae,” the cold sober
tale of a woman trapped in an abusive
relationship; Isbell diffusing the lyrical
tension through the line “this just isn’t
your day.” Similarly, “Tour of Duty”
examines the quiet ambivalence of a
war-ravaged soldier returning home
to start his life again. The band turns
from such poignant offerings to the
gospel-tinged groove of “Heart On A
String,” complete with gleaming African
Methodist Episcopal Church choir-styled
harmonies.
It’s easy to get lost in the vivid
narration that defines Isbell’s music.
This Deep South raconteur effortlessly
conveys empathy for the emotional
baggage we all carry, while ultimately
providing closure for all things dealing
with matters of the heart. Welcome to the
full-blown maturation of Jason Isbell.
-- Mark Uricheck
Weekender Correspondent
Earle is retrospective in nature,
and most of the song lyrics are
written as aging antagonist who
has grown weary of fighting but
still won’t concede. Considering
Earle’s age and the ups-and-
downs of his personal life,
this point of view seems very
appropriate — if not perfectly
obvious — and adds a degree
of realism and credibility to his
music. The subjects that Earle
writes about in some of songs
(such as “The Gulf of Mexico”
or “Little Emperor”) are very
specific, while others (such as “I
AmAWanderer,” “This City”
or “Meet Me In The Alleyway”)
are more generic, but in either
case he manages to capture the
world from the point of view of
someone who got the raw end of
a deal, which in today’s world
is too easy for many listeners to
relate to.
As with all of his prior work,
Earle never sounds too much like
country or too much like rock
on “I’ll Never Get Out of This
World Alive,” nor does he ever
try to. Instead, he once again
opts to further develop his niche
between the styles and draw fans
from both audiences who prefer
their music with a populist slant
along with a healthy dose of
defiance. While Earle definitely
sounds a little more mellow
and world-weary on this album,
he stays true to his roots and
continues to use his music to
give a voice to everyday men and
women.

hen you start a band,
most dream of reac-
hing genuine rock star
status. A platinum album, a
cross-country tour and maybe
a few groupies along the way.
Although not every band can
say they have achieved this
level of stardom, on local band
can say they are on their way.
Local rock band Ethereal
Collapse just found out it is
going to be featured on the
ever popular video game
“Rock Band,” and to celebrate
are going all out with a per-
formance at Bart & Urby’s in
downtown Wilkes-Barre Sat-
urday, April 30. The band’s
music will now be available
for download on the “Rock
Band” network, and they
couldn’t be more excited about
the news.
“It seriously means the
world,” said band member
Kris Huber. “There’s no other
way to put it. The band has
been around for almost 10
years now, and we’ve always
been searching for something
to really get the launch that we
need to start progressing the
way we’ve been wanting to,
and ‘Rock Band’ is perfect for
that. There are a lot of bands
that I’ve discovered because of
games like ‘Rock Band’ and
’Guitar Hero,’ like Gallows
and Evile and bands like that,
and I hope being involved with
something like this can help
people do the same with us.”
The addition to the “Rock
Band” network came as a
complete surprise to the band,
and they still don’t know who
to thank for helping them
receive this kind of industry
recognition.
“The charting company that
is programming our songs for
the game had an online forum
where people could request
bands to be added into the
downloadable content for
‘Rock Band,’ and some mem-
ber — who this person is I
have no clue which is a shame
because I owe them some
thanks — suggested us,” Hub-
er explained. “A few days
later, I was contacted by the
charting company to see if we
were interested, and of course
I jumped at the chance.”
As soon as it heard the great
news, the band decided there
was only on thing left to do, so
they are prepared to party.
“When I had gotten all the
news, I wanted to throw a
party to celebrate. And what
better way to celebrate than to
do what we do best and put on
a kick ass show for our fans!”
Huber said. “And I wanted to
keep it local because this is
where we’re from, and we
want to show that no matter
what success we achieve as a
band, we’re going to always
know where we started and be
proud of that. Not to mention
Bart & Urby’s wings are awe-
some, and I wanted food there,
too.” W

aking Back Sunday has
been through a lot of ups
and downs in its career.
Now comprised of Adam Lazza-
ra (vocals), John Nolan (vocals,
lead guitar), Eddie Reyes
(rhythm guitar), Shaun Cooper
(bass) and Mark O’Connell
(drums), it is set to release its
first album with this lineup
since 2002 on June 28. The
band will headline the Bamboo-
zle Festival in New Jersey this
weekend — and play a warm-up
show at the Sherman Theater in
Stroudsburg Thursday, April 28.
Cooper checked in with the
Weekender to catch up about the
new record and how the band
has been able to evolve into
what it is today.
WEEKENDER: Tell me
about the new, self-titled re-
cord and how you feel now
that it’s completed.
COOPER: Well, we started
writing songs a little over a year
ago. We met in El Paso, Texas,
for the first time in seven years.
We just started talking and feel-
ing each other out; we wanted
to make sure this whole process
would work. … At the end of
the first day, we had about three
new songs. Within a week, we
had about nine new songs. To
have that much productivity in
that amount of time was some-
thing none of us experienced
before.
WEEKENDER: How does
its sound compare to previous
Taking Back Sunday records?
COOPER: Well, it has defi-
nitely evolved. John and Adam
are such amazing songwriters in
their own right; separately
they’re phenomenal, but together
it’s even better. Their voices
bring such an energy that hasn’t
really been heard on a Taking
Back Sunday record in a long
time. You can hear it on “Where
You Want to Be.” “Louder
Now” is starts to get less and
less, then “New Again” it wasn’t
there at all. So this record is
bringing that back to a level that
hasn’t been topped before.
WEEKENER: Why did you
decide to depart the band in
2003?
COOPER: To me personally,
it was way too much success
way too soon. My ideal goal
was to have a record out some-
where. So after we did that, we
were kind of thrown out on tour
for two years, and I wasn’t ex-
pecting that. I was a young kid
— when I left the band I was
only 23 years old, and now I’m
30. All of us handled our suc-
cess in different ways, but for
the most part, we were drinking
too much because we could.
The access was just there back-
stage all time, there was always
liquor or beer.
And, of course, there was the
fact you were living in a van for
two years with four other guys.
Of course later, we able to get
to a bus, but it still doesn’t
matter. It was still dealing with
those same personalities and
seeing where we all fit. I had no
idea how to deal with that shit.
WEEKENDER: What made
this lineup want to get back
together?
COOPER: John and I were
doing a band called Straylight
Run, and that was ending. We
didn’t know what we were going
to do. I thought I would have to
get a job outside of the music
industry. We knew it would be a
struggle for both of us. Then
Mark, who was still drumming
for TBS and kept in close con-
tact with me since I left, was
hanging out with me during a
Long Island snowstorm. He
asked if I ever thought John and
I would come back. My re-
sponse was maybe for a 10 year
anniversary thing. His was a
simple, “No. I want my band
back.”
Immediately I thought that
would be cool, but I wasn’t sure
if John could/would be up for it
or if the five of us could even
work together again. At this
time “New Again” was out, and
it wasn’t doing much. Creatively,
the band wasn’t on the same
page, and everyone was un-
happy with where the band was
going, and they needed to shake
things up. Soon enough, we all
ended up in that room in Texas,
and here we are.
WEEKENDER: What goals
do you have this time around
with Taking Back Sunday?
COOPER: It’s almost all of
the same. I still can’t believe the
five of us are working together.
There is some sort of weird
energy with the five of us com-
bined. We’re better from work-
ing together. This record show-
cases that so much. We are all
likeminded with success — we
want as many people to hear our
band as possible. And this time
around, we all really like each
other. W

Weekender Correspondent
T
een dream Robert
Pattinson trades in his
fangs, glitter and literally
undying love for a veterinary
license, life under the big top
world and a much larger love in
“Water for Elephants.”
Francis Lawrence, the man
who helmed “I Am Legend” and
“Constantine,” tries on a much
different genre with “Water for
Elephants.” Written by Sara
Gruen, the story is based during
the Great Depression and is
presented as one long flashback
from the memories of an older
Jacob, a man that once stood on
the doorstep of a dream only to
have tragedy present him with
another.
Pattinson portrays Jacob, the
exceedingly bright son of Polish
immigrants who follows in his
father’s footsteps by studying
veterinary science. Aprestigious
Cornell degree is within his
grasp as he sits for the final
exam, but life has other plans
for the young man.
Jacob’s parents are killed
in a horrible car accident, and
as if this blow is not enough,
the young man learns that
they re-mortgaged their home
in order to pay for schooling.
Without family or a home,
the young man decides to run
away and hops the first train he
encounters, never realizing the
impact this will have on the rest
of his life.
One can safely assume the
current economic climate held
some weight in presenting a
Depression-era piece. One of
the more poignant moments is
during an exchange between
Jacob and an almost villainously
cold bank representative
regarding how he is going to
lose the family’s home due
to the his father’s foolishness
in obtaining a mortgage
for schooling. This heralds
the film’s overall sentiment
regarding the plight of the
masses during the Depression
and will surely resonate with
today’s audiences.
Jacob hops aboard a train
car belonging to the Benzini
Brothers Circus. Akindly older
roustabout named Camel (Jim
Norton) grabs the boy and
offers him the opportunity to get
work if he can pull his weight.
Jacob agrees, and following a
very tough day, is introduced
to the show’s big dog. August
(Christoph Waltz). August
proves to be a sadist and informs
his men to throw the young man

from the train. Jacob explains
his use with animals and offers
an opinion of one of the show’s
horses. Following this diagnosis,
August brings Jacob on as the
circus’s vet and expects him
to ready a new star attraction,
Rosie the elephant.
Unfortunately for Jacob, he
is smitten by the company’s
star and August’s wife, Marlena
(Reese Witherspoon). Herself a
runaway, she soon finds herself
falling for the compassionate
and caring young man, a man
as completely different from
her husband. The film is at its
root a love triangle set against
the backdrop of the Great
Depression. However, the circus
aspect differentiates it from
other tales of forbidden love.
Sadly, this alone is not enough
to give the film any memorable
qualities. It languishes at times
and becomes rather repetitive.
The film would have benefited
from a shorter running time
that could have taken out some
of these non-essential and
completely blasé passages.
At the end of the day, “Water
for Elephants” is a very sweet,
but forgettable film. It includes
a fine cast with the two well-
known leads and several
brilliant supporting actors
including the always engaging
Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds”)
and the iconic Hal Holbrook.
But as one already knows,
fine acting can’t trump poor
direction and writing even when
it includes the greatest show on
Earth.

By Ralphie Aversa
Special to the Weekender
I
f Yellowcard is taking an-
other trip down “Ocean
Avenue” with the release of
“When You’re Through
Thinking, Say Yes” last
month, the street has certainly
changed a bit since 2003.
“I don’t even know that a
record release is as relevant as
it used to be,” admitted lead
singer Ryan Key. The front-
man called in to “The Ralphie
Radio Show” while on tour
with All Time Low and Hey
Monday in Tempe, Ariz. “Peo-
ple are buying digital singles
and things like that and the
way you can talk to your fans
online, through Facebook and
Twitter … it’s so much more
in your hands.”
Key was referring specifical-
ly to the delayed release of
“Lights and Sounds.” The
band hoped to release the re-
cord in ’05 and had launched a
tour to support the album
based on that. However, after
Yellowcard hit the road, Capi-
tol Records pushed back the
date. Key cites this moment as
one that not only soiled the
band’s relationship with the
label but killed the momentum
built from the previous album,
which went platinum in the
states.
Now in 2011, Yellowcard
finds themselves back together,
making music, performing live
and fulfilling radio commit-
ments. Now the “elder states-
man” on the road (at least on
this tour: YC just announced a
June co-headlining trek with
Good Charlotte), it’s Key who
is sharing his war stories with
bands like All Time Low about
the joys and pains of recording
on a major label. Meanwhile
Key’s band has found new life,
not just with a new LP, but
with a new audience.
“We don’t really get a
chance to play for a lot of
people who haven’t seen our
band or heard our band be-
fore,” said Key. “This tour is a
really great opportunity to do
that because All Time Low and
the other bands have younger
fans. You know, their fans are
the age that are fans were back
in ’04, ’05 when our band was
kind of taking off.”
But despite the age, err,
generation gap, Key still finds
a highlight every night on
stage: Performing “Ocean Ave-
nue.”
“Especially on a tour like
this, where that’s a really famil-
iar song for a lot of people
who never got to see a show
or don’t have a record but they
know that song,” Key ex-
plained. “That really brings the
whole crowd together. It’s pret-
ty amazing.”
GAGA’S MANAGER
FLIP-FLOPS, APPROVES
WEIRD AL’S PARODY
The New York Times re-
porter Dave Itzkoff broke the
news last week that Lady Ga-
ga’s manager (presumably Troy
Carter) has flip-flopped on his
initial decision to prohibit
“Weird Al” Yankovic from
releasing a parody of Gaga’s
hit, “Born This Way.” Despite
first telling Yankovic that the
denial came straight from the
singer herself, Gaga’s manager
now alleges that he never
played the song for his artist.
After hearing the parody, entit-
led “Perform This Way,” it’s
reported that Gaga is a fan,
and Yankovic will be able to
release it commercially both as
a single and on his album.
“Weird Al” will donate all
proceeds from the single and
music video to the Human
Rights Campaign. The parody
will serve as the lead track
from Yankovic’s forthcoming
LP, “Alpocalypse,” due out
June 21. The song hit iTunes
on Monday.
There is a legal gray area as
to whether the comedian even
has to receive permission from
artists when poking fun at their
songs. However, “Weird Al”
has only been denied the right
to commercially release a song
one other time in his career:
Atlantic Records refused to
allow him to sell a parody of
James Blunt’s “You’re Beauti-
ful” entitled, “You’re Pitiful.” W

ILKES-BARRE TWP.
— A meek demeanor
and demure attitude are
not exactly attributes that could
easily be associated with the
legendary Sir Elton John, but
during his sold-out “Greatest
Hits Live” show Friday night at
Mohegan Sun Arena, the 64-year
old megastar proved he doesn’t
need fireworks or smoke ma-
chines to put on a powerfully
awe-inspiring show.
By today’s standards, the stage
setup would be considered bare
bones, complete only with John,
band members Nigel Olsson
(drums), Davey Johnstone (gui-
tar), Kim Bullard (keyboard),
Bob Birch (bass) and John Ma-
hon (percussion) and his talented
back-up singers. But with a near-
ly five-decades-long career under
his belt, the singer and piano
player didn’t need much help
knocking the socks off everyone
in attendance, and he and his
band had no problem filling
almost three solid hours with hit
after hit.
Greeted by an audience dotted
with pink feather boas in a nod to
his earlier days, John opened
with one of the few tunes of the
night that isn’t a permanent fix-
ture on classic radio, “Funeral for
a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding.”
The proceeding hits, “Saturday
Night’s Alright for Fighting,”
“Levon,” “Madman Across the
Water” and “Tiny Dancer,” set
the pace for the rest of the eve-
ning — the crowd was either
dancing wildly or sitting, hyp-
notically awestruck by John’s
piano skills and stunning vocals.
A high-spirited “Philadelphia
Freedom” was followed by the
ever-popular “Goodbye Yellow
Brick Road,” where John did
something he admitted he rarely
does: Invited the audience to sing
along. And after engaging in a
spirited chorus, attendees were
treated to a sweet rendition of
“Daniel,” followed by “Rocket
Man,” during which John really
worked his magic with a breath-
taking piano solo and jazzy end-
ing that had the crowd on its feet
for yet another hit to follow, “I
Guess That’s Why They Call it
the Blues.”
Although he spoke little during
the show, John proudly took the
time to introduce a melange of
new songs from his most recent
collaboration with his self-de-
scribed idol, Leon Russell, from
the acclaimed album, “The
Union.” John admitted that new
songs during a concert can be
more of a nuisance than a plea-
sure, but during “Hey Ahab,”
“The Best Part of the Day,”
“Gone to Shiloh,” “Monkey Suit”
and “When Love is Dying,” the
contagious beats drew in both
diehard fans who already knew
the words and newbies who
didn’t know more than the fact
that he had a song on “The Lion
King” soundtrack.
John and his band returned to
firing off smash hits, breezing
through “Sad Songs (Say So
Much),” “Take Me to the Pilot”
and “Sorry Seems to be the Har-
dest Word.” An already subdued
crowd was then taken to an even
more emotional place with the
moving chart-toppers, “Candle in
the Wind” and “Don’t Let the
Sun Go Down on Me,” before
experiencing a jaunty version of
“Burn Down the Mission.”
One of the highlights of the
night was the powerhouse “Ben-
nie and the Jets,” the undeniable
force that got a previously mel-
lowed-out crowd moving again
and kept it going through “The
Bitch is Back” and the finale,
“Crocodile Rock.”
The Rock and Roll Hall of
Famer returned to the piano
bench for an encore, but not
before taking the time to dole out
signatures to an adoring crush of
fans in front of the stage, an
unprecedented move for an artist
at his level and an obvious sign
of gratitude on John’s part. In
what could be called a sweet
tribute to his fans, he finished the
melodically perfect evening with
“Your Song” and gave a perform-
ance so striking, it’s no wonder
his fans keep coming back for
more. W
Elton John returned to the Mohegan Sun Arena in
Wilkes-Barre Twp. Friday, April 22.

novel approach
N
ot many people can say
they made it to the top of
their career by backstab-
bing a fellow YMCA employee
or being forced to ask Sylvester
Stallone to enunciate his words a
little more, but Tina Fey can. In
her wonderfully self-deprecating
memoir, “Bossypants,” the Penn-
sylvania native shares these sto-
ries and many more, exhibiting a
level of shameless candor that
could only be attributed to years
of embarrassing moments and
improvisational acting classes.
Today, Fey may be the doyenne
of NBC comedy, but before that
she was an awesomely nerdy 10
year-old who spent her days
being haunted by a maxi-pad box
she kept stashed in her closet.
Told loosely in chronological
order, “Bossypants” is the pain-
fully, but hilariously, blunt recol-
lection of Fey’s life to this point,
from her days as a sweaty ado-
lescent to her time spent writing
sketches for “Saturday Night
Live” (SNL), where, apparently,
peeing in jars was a totally nat-
ural occurrence for male employ-
ees.
Though the structure of the
book is a little messy, it matches
Fey’s personality perfectly: At
first, one isn’t quite sure how to
take it, but in the end it turns out
to be a sarcastically witty joy that
begs to be liked by everyone.
And Fey isn’t afraid to offer
advice through her chronicles,
either. While much of it is useless
but for its comedic value, some
of her nuggets of wisdom carry a
vaguely feminist tone that, com-
ing from one of the women who
helped change the face of “SNL,”
probably shouldn’t be ignored.
Even though the book changes
topics swiftly and abruptly
(thankfully, the chapters don’t
end with pop quizzes), the flow
feels uninterrupted. This may be
because Fey’s quirky and un-
assuming character traits make
her seem like exactly the type of
person who would rub shoulders
with the likes of Will Ferrell one
minute and rave about the boun-
ties of a Christmas spent at a
Holiday Inn in Williamsport, Pa.,
the next.
Though Fey divulges some
very interesting tidbits about
“SNL” and “30 Rock,” a sitcom
created and executive produced
in part by the comedienne, the
highlights of her escapades come
from the depths of her childhood
and her interpretation of the joys
of motherhood. Regardless of her
topic of choice, however, every
page of “Bossypants” is injected
with the signature dry and awk-
ward humor Fey is known for.
One would probably be hard-
pressed to find a publication that
pokes fun at breastfeeding, Lorne
Michaels and near-death experi-
ences all in one place, but “Bos-
sypants” does just that — and
with great success. The woman
who bears an eerily similar re-
semblance to Sarah Palin can
make light of just about any
situation, and she does so with an
obviously neurotic undertone that
makes her, and her book, simply
endearing.

W
ell, it’s been a long
wait. I hope it was
worth it.
Nintendo has been an icon
in the gaming industry for
years, weathering decades of
change and still managing
innovation from time to time.
I admit that I own and like
the Wii. And apparently so do
millions of others. Nintendo
has dominated sales of video
game consoles and sold 86
million Wiis since launching it
in 2006.
I have an Xbox360, but the
Wii is way more appealing to
me if I want casual gaming.
As a console system goes, it’s
just way more approachable.
And as far as simple games go,
arguably more fun.
Alas, the Wii just doesn’t cut
it in the graphics department.
On modern large-scale high
defnition screens, it just
doesn’t stack up. I notice
that the edges of objects are
pixilated with the Wii —
something that just doesn’t
happen with an Xbox360 or
PlayStation 3.
And so after years at the
back of the pack, Nintendo
has fnally announced the Wii
2. And it could hit shelves and
gamers’ hands in the second
half of 2012. According to
the Associated Press, the
Japanese company plans to
show a playable model of the
new console at the Electronic
Entertainment Expo, which
runs June 7-9 in Los Angeles.
Not many details were
disclosed, but it looks as
if it will be more powerful
than the current generation
of Xbox and Playstation —
as well it should be. Those
console systems are veterans
themselves. A much-needed
improvement is of course full
HD support — rumblings have
been heard of 3D capabilities
as well.
Rounding out the upgrades
are Blu-ray data storage and a
revised controller.
None of this is unexpected,
and it makes me wonder if
Nintendo has more up its
sleeve than it lets on.
Time will tell. And that time
is ticking.

Witherspoon said that his daughters, two-year-
old Jada and 11-year-old Maya, dig his day job, to
an extent.
“Oh my goodness, the little one thinks it
rocks,” he said, laughing. “She was just in Las

I’m at the house hanging out with her and her
friends I’m not ‘The Cool Guy.’ You know what, I
hope she realizes I’m cool before it’s too late, and
I’m not cool anymore!”
Despite spending so much time on the road,
Witherspoon finds it easy to transition from
Sevendust mode to Daddy mode.
“I do have a chance to decompress,” he says.
“I get to go down to our theater room — I call it
my own private Chili’s — I hang out, decompress.
We’ve been doing this a long time, so it’s gotten a

But that doesn’t mean the band doesn’t have

Since its inception in 1994, the Atlanta band

drummer Morgan Rose, bassist Vince Hornsby
and guitarists John Connolly and Clint Lowery

like Disturbed, Godsmack, Metallica, Kid Rock
and Ted Nugent. Just this year alone, Sevendust

have longer stage time, they also like to cover
other bands, including Limp Bizkit and Tom
Petty.
He said that touring can be long and hard,
but the band is passionate about its live show
and that keeps them doing it, because they
love to play live. And while being away from
their “traditional” families is hard at times,
as the band is usually touring for weeks at a
time, the appreciation and loyalty of the fans
helps get them through it.
“I think being a writer and creating
something and having people appreciate it
is obviously the best reward,” Walst said.
“We’ve had a lot of fans come up and be like,
‘This song saved my life.’ It’s pretty inspiring
when you hear that. I think that’s what it’s all
about right there.”
While this is the first tour Three Days
Grace has done with headliners Avenged
Sevenfold, Walst said it is not the first time
they have played at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
He said it is a great venue to see a show, and
the band is thankful for the support of the
fans here.
“Hopefully, you guys get a chance to come
out to the show,” he said. “I know we’ve
been to PAa lot, we’re pretty grateful to
have fans that come out and rock. I think this
tour is gonna do really good — it’s a great
lineup.” W
Keeping their music as close to their lives
as they keep one another, Walst said that their
songs, which he described as being heavy but
melodic, have evolved with them over the
years.
“We’re very personal about our music. It’s
quite therapeutic for us to write about stuff
going on in our lives. As our lives progress,
so does the music.”
And Walst said the band is currently
writing some new material, having about
six songs already, and hope to be in the
studio sometime this fall to begin recording
its fourth album. He said while the band
would like to be able to include some of its
unreleased songs during shows this year,
they are reluctant because the album itself
is probably about a year away from release,
and all too often songs get leaked out to the
public early.
“We’ve thought about throwing new songs
in, but it’s one of those things where you
don’t know,” he said. “People just take stuff.
You’ve gotta be really careful with piracy and
stuff like that. For us to play a new song right
now, I don’t know.”
But despite not slipping some new songs
into the mix at shows, he said the band tries
to mix things up a lot, tailoring its setlist to
the type of crowd, such as tossing in heavier
song when the moshing starts. Walst also
said that when they are headlining shows and
Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m.
Brad Walst, bassist for the Ontario-based
Three Days Grace, said that he considers his
bandmates to be like brothers.
“We do this a lot,” he said. “We’re on the
road about two years straight for each record,
so it’s important to have close family with
you. We treat each other like family — it’s
been almost 20 years. Even Barry, he’s like a
brother. It’s great to have people that close to
you, have fun and do what you want to do.”
Three Days Grace formed in 1997, after
Walst, singer/guitarist Adam Gontier and
drummer Neil Sanderson broke away from
their first band, Groundswell, which they had
been a part of since 1992. Walst said they
moved out to Toronto at that time, playing
wherever and whenever they could and
finally started meeting the right people to
really get their career in motion. The band
was soon picked up by Jive Records and
released its first, self-titled album in 2003.
Guitarist Barry Stock joined the mix later that
same year.

The heavy sound Sevendust has cultivated
since its early days comes easy — and comes
from something much deeper than just the
instruments its members play.
“I think the Sevendust thing is just the sound
that comes out of us, period, whenever we rock,”
Witherspoon declared. “The writing is fun — we
have so many experiences that guide us and, I
guess, help us be able to create this canvas and
this painting, I feel it’s art that we do as musicians
and artists. So it’s always interesting, and there’s
always inspiration and there’s always something
to write about.” W

istory in the making as we
come to an end of an era:
The final Concert for a Cause
Wednesday, April 27 at the
Woodlands in Plains Twp. It will be the
last concert of its kind in Northeastern
Pa., and there is an important task at
hand: To hit the goal of $200,000, a
respectable amount of money that has
been divided among various charitable
organizations throughout the years and
has benefited agencies all over NEPA.
It can be done this Wednesday, but only
through the support of the community.
This means you.
Through cash donations at the event,
the cover charge, the music memorabilia
auction, and the purchase of the official
Concert for a Cause CD, you can directly
contribute to not only hitting the Concert
for a Cause goal, but perhaps even
beating it. And one other way you can
see to it that it happens is, of course,
through fashion.
This year’s official Concert for
a Cause T-shirt should be regarded
differently. Although all of them
represent CFC memorabilia, this year, its
meaning is heightened. After all, it is the
very last one. And quantities are limited.
For a mere $5, you can be a part of
history and own the very last concert
T-shirt.
Complete with the CFC logo on the
front, as well as the date, venue and
complete lineup of the bands performing
on the back, the CFC T-shirt comes in
small, medium, large, x-large and a very
limited number of x-x-large. And here’s
the best part: 100 percent of the proceeds
from these shirts will be donated to Big
Brothers/Big Sisters to support its anti-
bullying programs. So whether you want
the T-shirt for the memory or you simply
like the design, know that your dollar
will count and be donated to a program
designed to protect area youth from the
ugly bullying epidemic.
Purchase your final Concert for a
Cause T-shirt for $5 on Wednesday,
April 27 at the Woodlands by stopping
in the ballroom and visiting the
merchandise table from 6 p.m.-2 a.m.
Pick up your collectible T-shirt that was
13 years in the making before it is gone
for good.
One night. One t-shirt. One great
way to remember the 13 years of
concerts for great local causes and
Karen. Thanks for the memories. W

WINETIME:
WINE-INSPIRED
CHOCOLATE BARS
After I started taking a fit-
ness class recently, I’ve been
looking for ways to eat better,
so when a press release for
WineTime gourmet nutrition
bars came across my desk, I
couldn’t help but be intrigued.
As we’ve heard for years,
red wine has a some health
benefits, and
WineTime
bars, devel-
oped by
Malcolm
and Sandy
Nicholl of Cali-
fornia, contain
more Resveratrol
than 50 glasses of red
wine. Resveratrol is found in
the skin of red grapes and
other fruits and vegetables and
is said to provide anti-aging,
antioxidant and heart-protect-
ing benefits.
According to WineTime’s
website, “Many researches
believe that Resveratrol is
primarily responsible for
what’s called ‘The French
Paradox,’ the observation that
the people of France, in gen-
eral, enjoy good cardiovascu-
lar health even though their
diet is high in fat.”
Available in two flavors —
chocolate raspberry and dark
chocolate with dates and al-
monds — WineTime bars
contain seven extra “super
fruits:” cranberry, noni, po-
megranate, gogi berry, acai,
mangosteen and blueberry.
The bars are also high in fiber
with 7 grams in the dark
chocolate version and 8 grams
in the chocolate raspberry.
They are completely vegan
and gluten, dairy and choles-
terol free and contain no trans
fat, hydrogenated oils or high
fructose corn syrup or artifi-
cial flavors, sweeteners, colors
or preservatives. Both versions
ring in at 190 calories; the
dark chocolate one has 9
grams of total fat while the
chocolate raspberry has 8
grams.
So without anything seem-
ingly bad, which is usually
what makes most not-so-good-
for-you foods taste good, how
do WineTime bars actually
taste?
Really, really good. The
chocolate raspberry smelled
delicious and had a slight
crunch with a rich chocolate
taste and no overbearingly
sweet raspberry tinge, while
the dark chocolate, dates and
almonds also smelled yummy
and had the same chocolaty
crunch as the chocolate rasp-
berry bar plus ample bits of
almonds and dates. They kept
me full for a long time, which
is always a good thing when it
comes to nutrition and meal-
replacement bars.
WineTime bars are available
at winetimebar.com. A 10-bar
pack costs $29.90 plus ship-
ping while a 40-bar family
pack is $89.70 plus shipping.
There is also a 20-bar “Wine-
Timers Club” package, which
will ship 10 bars of both fla-
vors every 30 days for $59.80.
The company also
provides whole-
sale orders
for busi-
nesses. For
more info, visit
its website.
SCHOOL TASTES GOOD
The Geneva School will
hold its seventh annual “Taste
of the Valley” Thursday, April
28 from 5:30-8 p.m. at Fiorel-
li’s (1501 Main St., Peckville).

demic classes for students

Green piece
By Jen Stevens
Special to the Weekender
W
hen we think about
living an eco-friendly
lifestyle, we will green
just about anything we can. So
while we’re greening everything
around us, we should also con-
sider setting a good example for
our friends and family. No one
wants to come off too pushy or
preachy, so the best way to turn
a friend or family member onto
living green is by giving green.
With graduations and Mother’s
Day — which is May 8, don’t
forget — quickly approaching,
it’s the perfect opportunity to
start giving eco-friendly gifts.
A few months ago, I was
flipping through a magazine and
found an incredible watch.
Sprout watches are eco-friendly
watches made from 80 percent
biodegradable materials in-
cluding: corn resin, organic
cotton, bamboo, mineral crystal
and mercury-free batteries. The
company strives to make the
most eco-friendly watch pos-
sible all while keeping them
stylish and unique. There are
many different styles to choose
from, and since everyone could
use a watch, I thought it would
make a great gift! Check out
the collection on their website:
www.sproutwatches.com.
There is of course the more
traditional route you can take by
getting someone flowers. But
even the commercial flower
industry takes its toll on the
planet with the toxic chemicals
used and excessive consumption
of water and other natural re-
sources used to grow. When it
comes to flowers, you should
buy locally grown and in-season
bouquets in order to preserve
the planet’s precious resources.
Farmers’ markets always carry a
variety of flowers that are in
season and grown locally. There
are also many different local
florists in NEPA, so just give
them a call and ask about orga-
nic and chemical-free flowers.
If you have a fashionable
Mom or a stylish friend grad-
uating, consider getting them
recycled jewelry or a vintage
piece from a local boutique or
thrift store. Every time you buy
or wear vintage you are recy-
cling! With “do-it-yourself ”
fashion and sustainable threads
on the rise, there are many local
consignment and vintage shops
to find a great gift. Etsy.com is
perfect for finding just about
anything, but it’s especially
great to find vintage gifts.
Another great gift idea is the
recycled water bottle with a
filter already in it. These are
starting to pop up everywhere,
but you want to make sure that
it’s BPA-free and American
made. The Hydros Bottle is one
of my favorites because it funds
sustainable water projects to
help people gain access to clean
water. Visit www.hydrosbottle-
.com to learn more. The Bobble
water bottles are trying to elim-
inate the need for bottled water
while keeping costs down.
Made in America, the Bobble
comes in different sizes and is
made from recycled materials.
You can find Bobble water
bottles here in NEPA at Target,
Macy’s and Bed, Bath and Be-
yond.
These are just a few of the
many great eco-friendly gift
ideas out there. We make choic-
es every day through our ac-
tions, so set a good example
and hope that friends and fam-
ily will follow. W
Go green by

sorry mom&dad
By Justin Brown
Weekender Correspondent
A
s my 25th birthday is
approaching this week, I
can’t help but flinch at
the thought of the 25 salutatory
“birthday punches” coming my
way. After some of the shit I’ve
done, I can’t argue that I don’t
deserve them. So, Mom and
Dad, in honor of putting up with
me for 25 years, I reverse the
role of gift-giving on this occa-
sion and present you with 25
apologizes that looking back
may have been stupid, but
seemed important at the time:
1. Sorry I used to pee in the
kitchen sink growing up. Some-
times the long walk to the bath-
room was a trek I wasn’t willing
to bear.
2. Sorry I changed our an-
swering machine greeting to
something obscene when I was
14.
3. Sorry I forced you to talk
to a producer of “The Dr. Phil
Show” when I was 16 to con-
vince them you were worried by
my “attraction to eighty year old
women.” I just wanted a free trip
to Hollywood. So much for that
falling through!
4. Sorry I told my algebra
teacher you were dying, Dad. I
needed a passing grade.
5. Sorry I disrespected a strip-
per on my 18th birthday. In my
defense, she did talk too much
about her spray tan.
6. Sorry I lied about the price
of tuition so I could live like a
rock star off student refund
checks.
7. Sorry I sold my textbooks
back to the campus bookstore to
fund a trip to Vegas.
8. Sorry that I told Mom
about that trip and not you, Dad.
9. Sorry I called you for bail
money on your birthday, Dad.
10. Sorry I gave you the nick-
name “Menopause Monster,”
Mom.
11. Sorry I dressed a midget
as a condom.
12. Sorry I dressed up as
JonBenet Ramsey one Hallo-
ween.
13. Sorry I am the reason the
Black Student Union is no long-
er allowed to have a talent show.
14. Sorry I only earned 10
credits my first year of college.
15. Sorry I didn’t take college
more seriously.
16. Sorry I made you pull over
on the way to Thanksgiving
dinner so I could throw up from
partying the night before.
17. Sorry I occasionally spend
my afternoons lying on Wikipe-
dia.
18. Sorry I’m really tempted
to pee in the kitchen sink right
now.
19. Sorry I don’t always wash
behind my ears.
20. Sorry I sometimes wish
Billy Ray Cyrus was my dad so
I could have an excuse for being
such a hot mess.
21. Sorry I flew 3,000 miles
to give Michael Lohan a Father
of the Year Award.
22. Sorry I delayed my gradu-
ation date even further to be on
a Japanese game show.
23. Sorry for any time I said
“I hate you” in an argument.
24. Sorry that I didn’t gradu-
ate college yet.
25. My apologies if you don’t
realize there is plenty more
where that came from ... W

Ride of
the Week
“I’m actually the third generation to own (the car),” Colfer
says of the Cutlass, which has been in his family since it was
bought brand new in late 1961. “My grandfather bought it new,
he passed it down to my father, who passed it down to me. I’ve
been restoring it, hoping to pass it on to my son very soon.
I’m hoping to turn the keys and the upkeep over to my son in
December, exactly 50 years after my grandfather drove it off
the lot.” W

AGENDA, FROM PAGE 51
but then again ...
By Jim Rising
Weekender Correspondent
I
had lunch with someone the
other day. In a real restaurant
that doesn’t feature a clown
on the menu. Actual metal uten-
sils. Lunch away from students
and the Rising Ranch is a rarity
these days. I get to do it once in
a blue moon and that is usually
with the long-suffering wife.
Which is a joy, but not the same
experience at all because at this
stage in our relationship, we can
order for each other. In fact, the
waitresses can order for us. Not
to say we are stuck in a rut. Not
a deep one anyway.
Breaking bread with someone
different is a whole different
kettle of fish. Working from the
house (Home Office if the IRS
is reading this), you develop
certain patterns of behavior. Not
all of them lend themselves to
polite company. Wearing clothes
without holes. Wearing clothes
that have been recently washed.
Wearing clothes at all.
Personal hygiene suffers a bit
when you know the only thing
that will observe you today will
be a computer screen. The new
ones are not even reflective, so
often the first glance you get in
a mirror is like looking at a
clown’s face. You tend to get a
little startled. Who is that? Who
combed my hair anyway, squir-
rels? What is that on my chin?
Manners are a bit different in
the solitary mode as well. Much
of my day is spent chasing dead-
lines, so I can be very rushed at
times. Meals are consumed with
less-than-Emily-Post etiquette
standards, if you call eating
directly from the cooking vessel
a standard of any sort. Plus,
since I am in a hurry, I eat fast
and this causes a gastro-in-
testinal reaction known as “gas”
which manifests itself in what
Emily would have called eructa-
tion if she didn’t drop dead at
the very idea of it. I belch.
Loudly and with length. I can
and have recited the alphabet
during one. I am pretty sure that
this behavior would not go over
in a restaurant. Especially the
ones that rattle the windows.
There is another gastrointestinal
reaction as well. We need not go
there.
A day working in solitary
confinement can be somewhat
lonely. I work in that curious
world known as “online” so I
rarely even talk to real people
on the phone. Not that I get
starved for human conversation.
Not at all. Just ask “Tom” the
survey taker who had the mis-
fortune of getting me to partici-
pate in a survey about … well,
it was a survey. About some-
thing I am sure. We got to talk-
ing, “Tom” and I. We really had
a good conversation. He was in
Rochester, N.Y. Just finished
college. 25 years old, Tom is.
Has a niece, he thinks, in Scran-
ton. It’s warmer in Rochester
than in Dallas. How about them
“Yankees?” I bet his supervisor
was thrilled when he heard that
conversation recorded for quality
assurance and training. And to
think I used to hang up on tele-
marketers.
A delivery or repairman is a
welcome distraction as well.
What does it say that I know the
sound of the mail truck? That I
can usually get down to the
mailbox in time to chat with the
mailperson. What part of this is
making you think this poor man
needs a life?
Speaking of conversations I
have more than a few with a
stuffed animal named “Figment”
who sits near my keyboard. I
often talk over life’s challenges
with “Figgie.” He is what I
consider a good listener. Not
much in the response depart-
ment, but you take what you can
get. His hygiene is better than
mine as well. He never belches.
But it was a nice lunch, and I
hope to do it again real soon. I
think the waitress will forget
what I look like in six months
or so. Maybe. W

M
ay 8th is Mother’s Day.
Every mother wishes for
a healthy and happy
child. Those wishes don’t always
come true. Sometimes very
young children are hit with dis-
eases and injuries that would
level any adult. Many of them
don’t understand why they are
sick or how to get better. One
thing that they know they can
count on is the magic of a wish.
This year, Sheriff John Gilli-
gan and his staff of stalwart
deputies have decided that they
want to be part of that magic.
After seeing a story on one of
our local news stations about
another Sheriff’s department, the
group of Jim Halford, Mike
Patterson and Donald Lasoski
took the idea of a motorcycle
run for the Make-A-Wish Foun-
dation to the sheriff to see what
he thought and after a vote, the
idea was passed. On Saturday,
May 7, you can join with the
Sheriff’s Office for a steel-horse
run and after-ride party that will
let you, too, become part of the
magic for some young Luzerne
County child.
Stephanie Pugliese, manager
of special events for the Make-a-
Wish Foundation (MAWF) said
that, “All the money goes to the
main foundation, and we would
like to give it to a Luzerne
County child.” She added that,
“it takes $3,400 to fund one wish
for a child. Since 1987, 312
Luzerne County children’s wish-
es have been fulfilled, and at this
time we have four wishes pend-
ing.”
“We are hoping that we can
fund all four waiting children,
but we’re shooting for at least
two,” Gilligan said. They can
reach that goal with the help of
all those bikers who give some-
thing just about every weekend.
Registration for the ride is
from 8-11 a.m. in the Mohegan
Sun Arena parking lot (not the
casino, the arena!). Kickstands
go up promptly at 11:30 a.m. for
a 50-mile ride through the Penn-
sylvania countryside escorted by
the Sherriff’s Office and many
municipal police departments as
well as the State Police. The ride
ends at the Plains Lions Pavilion
where food and refreshments
will be provided.
“The Sheriff’s Office wants to
start doing more community
outreach projects, along the lines
of community policing,” Halford
said about the ride. “Currently,
we run the Junior Deputy project
for kids and do the fingerprint-
ing as well.”
He admitted that this motorcy-
cle run was the first for the
office but that they’d like to add
a Toys for Tots event later this
year, too.
““I think this (Make-a-Wish)
is a great cause, anything to help
those kids out, they are really
suffering,” Halford said.
To see the genuine concern for
these kids in this tough-as-nails
officer’s eyes made it easy to
write this story. Everyone at the
Sheriff’s Office, including the
Motorcycle Unit, will be there to
make this day a special one for
some local kids and hopefully
begin a trend that will follow
with many more events like this
one.
I asked the sheriffs why do
this kind of outreach? Other than
the obvious caring for the kids of
our county who are in need, Carl
Zawatski and Gilligan explained:
“Overall, you seem to get more
cooperation from the citizens
who know you. They are more
apt to testify at PFA’s (Protection
From Abuse Orders), to report
on outstanding warrants and they
are more likely to cooperate with
law enforcement if they know
someone in law enforcement.”
Halford explained that right
now they have Lt. Joyce who
goes out to the 4th graders in the
area and talks to them about
drugs, bullying and things like
that as part of the Junior Deputy
Program. Its programs like these
that help with community build-
ing in our area.
Regarding the after ride, in
addition to the great food and
refreshments there will be three
bands, Pair of Mikes, Mark
Maros Band and Lie Back. So
come out to the after party if you
don’t have a bike or want to just
help out.
A little bit about the MAWF
from its website: “The Make-A-
Wish Foundation was founded in
1980 in Phoenix, Arizona. A
small group of people there
helped a very ill little boy
achieve his wish — to be a state
trooper for a day. From that one
wish made 29 years ago, more
than 161,000 wishes have been
granted throughout 65 chapters
in the United States and in 33
countries around the world.”
And so the story continues the
first wish was for a young boy to
be a State Trooper for a day, and
on May 7, you can help the
Sheriff’s Office make a wish or
two come true for a Luzerne
County child. Be there. W
If steel horses
were wishes
The Luzerne County Sheriff’s Office will help out at a
ride for Make-A-Wish May 7.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20)
Imagine if you were limited to only 10
foods for the rest of your life. Not only
would you have trouble remaining healthy
and fit on such a diet, you’d surely get
bored and sick of them pretty quickly, no
matter how much you loved them at first.
That’s true of all the things you adore
right now. Don’t wear them out! Put that
beloved song on repeat, and you’ll never
want to hear it again next month. Spread
the love to make it last. Mix things up.
You want to want this stuff (or that per-
son) a year or 10 years from now? You
know what to do.
GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
Rationally, you should be able to recog-
nize that what’s important to you isn’t
necessarily all that critical or even in-
teresting to those around you. Sure, you
can twist someone’s arm to participate
anyway. But imagine how it would feel to
let them off the hook — then consider
doing it. Of course, if you do make the
offer, really mean it, don’t use it as some
kind of loyalty test. If you tell them they
can skip out, don’t get pissed if they hap-
pily do so. They probably will! If that’s
not OK, don’t pretend for even a second
that it is.
CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22)
No one holds a grudge like a slighted
Crab. But consider what you actually get
out of hanging on to those negative feel-
ings: Generally, nothing. In the meantime,
it makes you unpleasant to be around, and
hard to live inside your own head. Ratio-
nally, realize that letting go of that shit,
while extremely challenging, is the only
healthy path to an overall happier place.
That doesn’t mean you need to forgive
those who wronged you, or pretend noth-
ing happened, but nursing resentment will
only make everyone around you uncom-
fortable. See if you can just take them off
your radar instead.
LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22)
If, for some unknown reason you woke
up tomorrow a redhead, a different race or
the opposite gender, you’d be a medical
anomaly — but you’d still be yourself.
People would perceive you differently, and
you’d perceive yourself differently, but
you’d still be you. Wouldn’t you want
people to believe that you’re who you say
you are, despite what they perceive you to
be, based entirely on your looks? When
someone tells you about themselves, try
to take them at their word, even if it con-
flicts with what you’d guessed. Some-
times, people will lie, but that’s not likely
to be the case this week.
VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22)
Be a creative communicator this week.
Imagine two people have the same mess-
age, but one simply “states the facts,”
while the other gets the point across and
makes people laugh, too. Who do you
think will enjoy not only a better recep-
tion, but a more attentive audience? You
don’t need to be a comedian. But try to
think of ways to convey your thoughts and
also add joy or fun to someone’s day.
You’ll not only be more effective, but also
get better results from relatively little
effort on your part. You don’t have to try
hard (which would probably backfire);
you just have to try.
LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22)
Every scenario has its price of admis-
sion. Whether it’s a relationship, a job or
even a fun time with friends, there will
probably be things that you’re not crazy
about, but have to put up with in order to
be there. Your duty this week is to figure
out, as quickly as possible, exactly what
the price of admission is and whether or
not you’re willing to “pay” it, so you can
spare everyone the hassle and annoyance
of a lot of wasted time and effort. This
isn’t always clear as a sign posted at the
door, but you should be able to figure out
what’s up pretty quickly nevertheless;
when in doubt, just ask.
SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21)
Coercing someone (through whatever
means) to do as you wish is a dangerous
business. If your influence or hold over
them is powerful enough to get them to
do whatever it is they’re reluctant to do, it
might be potent enough to compel them
to take other action instead — action you
might not like. Forcing someone’s hand is
a risky business in a card game; it’s even
more so in life. As exciting as it is, it’s not
always your best option; in this case, it’s
probably completely unnecessary. There-
fore, try a less dramatic course.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21)
Occasionally, your decision isn’t about
whether or not to tell the truth (generally,
if you’re a reasonably evolved Sagittarian,
you’re honest to a fault), but how much
truth to tell. Sometimes there are things
you know that aren’t your responsibility
or even right to share. This is a tricky
moral call to make, and I expect you to
struggle with it a little. It’s not always a
clear-cut line. Do you tell a stranger that
her husband is cheating on her? Do you
let the buyers of your home know they’re
paying too much? While lying is never
going to feel good, sometimes the best
and smartest thing you can do is simply
keeping your mouth shut and minding
your own business.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19)
Loyalty is a no-brainer for a Leo or
Scorpio. Capricorns, though, can some-
times get confused about what they owe
the people they love. Would you, for ex-
ample, give a flaky friend an excellent job
reference, even if you wouldn’t actually
hire them yourself? That’s loyalty, howev-
er, some Capricorns might think they owe
the perfect strangers on the other end of
the phone line more than their flawed but
well-known buddy. That’s a little back-
wards. That doesn’t mean you need throw
all ethical considerations out the window;
just make sure you’re cutting your friends
as much slack as possible, and coming
through for them in every way you can.
Then you’ll have done your part.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18)
Once you’ve said and heard everything
that needs to be said, there’s no point in
continuing the discussion. However, some
people will be only too happy to go round
and round in circles forever if you let
them. Don’t. Walk away. In time, the
words will either sink in, or something
else will change, and another exchange
might have fruitful results. That’s not
likely right now. It may feel a bit harsh,
but if you’re certain nothing’s about to
shift, it’s actually a kindness to cut things
off. They’re not going to, so that’s now
your job.
PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20)
It doesn’t matter what you’re looking
for: Love, a job, a new place to live.
Here’s the problem with casting a wide
net: You often get a “yes” before your top
choice has weighed in, and are forced to
choose between that pretty good bird in
the hand and the awesome one still wait-
ing in the bush, which may fly away be-
fore you catch it. Since you Pisces despise
having to make decisions like these (and
will often end up losing both opportuni-
ties through your indecision), I don’t think
the wide net strategy is a good one. In-
stead, you should be baiting your hook
and fishing where you’re most likely to
catch that one fish you really want. You
may never get it, it’s true — but you’ll
never know unless you try.
ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19)
If you got a birthday gift you didn’t
like, it’d be pretty darn arrogant and ridic-
ulous to go to the giver and demand
something “better.” Even if this week’s
situation is much less obvious than that,
the basic mechanic is similar, and making
entitled demands would be just as petty
and selfish. Therefore, don’t. Accept
what’s given in the spirit with which it’s
given, even if it’s “not enough,” different
from or inferior to what you were expect-
ing. Oh, and for goodness’ sake, please
remember to be grateful, or at least act as
if you are. W

Solid vehicles, no games
Pierce Street Motors, is located at 543 Pierce Street in Kingston,
Pennsylvania. They offer pre-owned vehicle sales, and automotive
detailing at the best price in the valley. They have been in
business for 10 years. Call them for an appointment at 570-
288-3000. Visit them on the web at
www.piercestmotors.com, or on facebook at
www.facebook.com/piercestreetmotors.
W- Paul thanks for taking the time to do this with us,
first off I want to know, how is business this year?
P- Anytime John thanks. Business is pretty good this year, as far
as vehicle sales, the pre-owned vehicle market is in high demand,
and our vehicle detailing shop is staying very steady, especially
this time of the year, after the long winter.
W- Great! A simple question for you. Why buy a pre-
owned vehicle from you? It’s obvious there are plenty of
dealerships around?
P - That is very true, but there are several reasons why we are your
one stop for a pre-owned vehicle in the valley. First off, we only
sell trades. Once the vehicle is traded, we follow a strict process
before it goes on the lot. We service them completely, whatever
they need, we do. Nothing is overlooked in service. Whether it is
brakes, rotors, tires, timing belt, water pump or something as
minor as ball joints, or sway bars, we do it! Then the vehicle gets
fully reconditioned in our detailing shop before it is put for sale
on the lot. The next, and most important thing we do, is price the
car right. No games here, we are all about volume. What you see
if what you pay.
W- Wow, you aren’t kidding, you sure know your product.
Do your vehicles come with any type of warranty?
P- Great question, all of our vehicles come with a 3 month 3,000
mile warranty free of charge. It covers all your major powertrain
components, such as all internal lubricated parts of the engine,
and transmission, timing belt, water pump, and your drivetrain.
The best part is we are fortunate enough to be able to offer
extended service contracts for up to 4 years, or 48,000. Also, we
have additional coverages to help protect your investment, such as
road hazard protect, key replacement coverage, and gap
insurance. We want to sell you a solid vehicle, that will last you
for years upon years.
W- Sounds good to me, I’ve been doing advertising with
you for several years, how long have you been there?
P- Yes you have, I have been here for 9 years. I started off in the
detailing shop. Its a very great place to work, its almost like we
are a family here, Rick, our detail shop manager, and Jen our
sales-representative have also been here 9 years. I want to think
of Pierce Street Motors as a local favorite for sales, and detailing.
The majority of the clients I have sold vehicles to have come back
to see me again, and again. We have detailing customers that
come weekly for wash’s and several times a year for full detailing.
Its a good feeling to have so many repeat customers.
W- Well it’s nice to hear so many good things about your
sales department, before we conclude tell me a little
about the automotive detailing you offer?
P- Our detail shop is simply spectacular. We charge $14.95 for a
hand wash and vacuum, this includes a full wash, dry, cleaning of
windows, and dressing the tires. This is completely by hand so
there is no chance of scratching the vehicle. We also offer several
packages, the most popular is the full detail, if you can see it we
clean it! We use a unique 3 step buffing process, to make your car
look as close to new as possible. We also offer headlight
restoration, tint and odor removal, pinstriping, wetsanding, glass
chip repair, and plenty more! On top of all this, later this spring
we are going to offer an exciting new service to our detail shop!
We guarantee you we will beat and local competitors price on
detailing, and our work is 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

Auto stores, more than 135
trophies up for grabs! The
Sports Car Club of America
will again be holding a SO-
LO II autocross/ drifting
competition for racers and
spectators. If interested in
racing at the show, make
sure to visit the SCCA web-
site for important informa-
tion. Also features the Kid-
die Rydes DB Challenge, a
SPL stereo competition
which will add more tro-
phies to the mix. The guys
from DROP ‘EM WEAR will
have the official 11th anni-
versary Droptoberfest T-

Confirmed show coverage
will be announced on the
website within the follow-
ing weeks. Visit Kiddie
Rydes or Droptoberfest on
MySpace and Facebook for
pictures of previous Drop-
toberfests. Lastly, Drop-
toberfest started as the
area’s only outlet for low-
ered cars and trucks to
compete against them-
selves, not against vehicles
like classic, muscle, an-
tique, and hot rod. Over the
past 10 years, Droptober-
fest has made such a name
for itself, that it had to
grow to accomodate these
other categories of custom
vehicles. So if you haven’t
been by in a few years, try
it again, you’ll be im-
pressed by the balance of
old and new, dropped and
lifted, classic and modern,
and race and cruisin’.

STOP!
Don’t Call Any
Auto Glass Company
Until You Read This Public
Service Message
This public message is for customers buying glass...
GETTING PREMIUM GLASS ON A RIGHT BUDGET WITH HASSLE?
You have the choice between aftermarket or premium glass.
AFTERMARKET GLASS: is a replica of the original
part and it is not manufactured as durable as the
premiumglass. It will not withstand an impact if a rock were to
hit the glass. Premium glass roughly costs $20-$30 more.
PREMIUM GLASS: is manufactured by an OEM
manufacturer. It’s the same glass that comes right from the
production line. Remember, glass companies install
aftermarket glass to keep cost down and is not worth the
savings.
DON’T BE STEERED: Insurance companies
contract with certain auto glass companies. As a policy
holder you have the right to choose any glass facility you
want. You do NOT have to use the company your agent
referred you to. Treat this message like a coupon. Call an
honest and reliable company and save instantly.
Remember this, your family’s safety is our concern. Your
windshield makes up between 40-70% of the structure of
your vehicle. It’s purpose is to support the roof in a rollover
collision.
