Letter from the editor

F

orgive us for tooting our own horn for a minute, but it’s been an exciting week here at the Weekender. First up, we got word that the newspaper won two awards in the 2011 Spotlight Contest held by the Keystone State Professional Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. The SPJ is the nation’s most broad-based journalism organization. The Weekender won first place in the category of Headline Writing, NonDaily, for “Franks for the memories,” the cover words of the Wednesday, March 31, 2010 issue about the hot dog histories of Abe’s and Coney Island. We also came in third place for Best Overall Non-Daily Newspaper, behind the Jewish Exponent and Pittsburgh Business Times. Professionally — and personally — it’s a great honor, not just for myself being part of the editorial team, but for our staff as a whole. Besides, who doesn’t love winning an award, especially one that recognizes you in your chosen field? (I

know I do!) Secondly, I hope you’ll join me in welcoming the newest member of our family, Amanda MacPeek. Amanda graduated from the University of Rhode Island in 2005 and is attending Wilkes University for her master’s in business. Amanda joins the staff as the Weekender’s Scranton ad executive. As for this week’s issue, we have our cover story on the 4th Annual Mayday Music Festival, which will be held Sunday, May 29 at Kirby Park (p. 14-15), a review of the latest installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise (p.25), an interview with B.o.B. in “The Ralphie Report” (p.38), a tasty new Mystery Mouth review (p. 47) and much more. Thanks for reading, and have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend, everyone! Nikki M. Mascali Weekender Editor

WEEKENDER WINS The Weekender recently won two awards in the 2011 Spotlight Contest held by the Keystone State Professional Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, the nation’s most broad-based journalism organization. The paper won first place for Headline Writing, Non-Daily, for “Franks for the memories,” the cover words of the Wednesday, March 31, 2010 issue about the hot dog histories of Abe’s and Coney Island. The Weekender also came in third place for Best Overall Non-Daily Newspaper, behind the Jewish Exponent and Pittsburgh Business Times. “Unlike other contests, the Spotlight Contest has only two categories: Daily and Non-Daily,” Susan Schwartz, contest coordinator, said in a press release. “That means if you win a category, you’ve beaten every other paper in that category in the state, regardless of size.” WOODLOCH VIA SELF NEPA once again made it into the pages of SELF magazine: A stay at The Lodge at Woodloch (731 Welcome Lake Road, Hawley) is one of 10 destinations in the June issue’s “Score a Dream Spa Vacation” contest. The winner would land a twonight stay in a veranda one-bedroom suite, one massage per person, three meals daily and unlimited activities. The trip is valued at $3,053. Visit self.com for more info.

BIG TENT MEMORIAL WEEKEND DANCE

NOT THE WEAKER SEX Rights of women are severely restricted in Pakistan’s tribal areas and among Muslim fundamentalists, but the rights of the country’s estimated 50,000 “transgenders” blossomed in April when the country’s Supreme Court ordered the government to accept a “third sex” designation on official documents (instead of forcing a choice of “male” or “female”). The court further recommended that transgenders be awarded government job quotas and suggested “tax collector” as one task for which they are particularly suited, since their presence at homes and businesses still tends to embarrass debtors into paying up quickly (especially since many transgenders outfit themselves, and behave, flamboyantly).

since two people subsequently died, and one moved in. CAVALCADE OF REDNECKS (1) Sharon Newling, 58, was arrested in Salisbury, N.C., in April and charged with shooting at her stepson with a .22-caliber rifle. She denied shooting “at” him, but said she was just shooting toward him “to make him stop working on his truck.” (2) In April in Greensboro, N.C., Stephanie Preston and Bobby Duncan were married in front of family and friends at the local Jiffy Lube. (3) A 25-year-old man in Okaloosa County, Fla., was arrested and charged with misdemeanor trespassing after he entered the Club 51 Gentlemen’s Club, from which he had been banned after a February incident. The man told police that he knew he had been banned from a strip club but couldn’t remember which one. DEMOCRACY IN ACTION (1) Lisa Osborn was one of only two candidates who qualified to run for the two vacant seats on the Bentley (Mich.) Board of Education in May, yet she did not win. One vote would have put her on the board, but she got none (having been too busy even to vote for herself that day because of her son’s baseball game). (2) Monika Strub began campaigning for a state parliament seat in Germany in March as a member of the Left Party. Until 2002, Strub, then “Horst Strub,” was with the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party, but then decided he was really a female, underwent surgery and became Monika, a socialist. Not surprisingly, she has been harassed by some of her former colleagues.

PEOPLE WITH ISSUES Anorexia nervosa is widely recognized as a debilitating eating disorder that can be fatal in as many as 10 percent of cases. However, men with masturbation fantasies about super-skinny women have fueled an almostfive-fold increase in “ana-porn” websites, to more than 1,500 since 2006, according to an April report by London’s The Guardian. One site’s recruiting page limited models to those with a body-mass index of 15 or under, and warned that “(b)ones and ribs must be very visible.” However, these recruiters are sometimes anorexics’ only flatterers, terming them “superstar(s) of starvation,” “much prettier than all those meat mountains.” (Unlike child or animal pornography, ana-porn is not illegal.) A NEWS OF THE WEIRD CLASSIC (APRIL 1991) A St. Louis Post-Dispatch investigation of voter rolls since 1981 in East St. Louis, Ill., identified 27 specific dead people who voted in various elections, complete through the 1990 primary. Inspiringly, two men who had never cast a single vote while alive apparently decided to begin participating in the democratic process once they had died, and Mr. Willie E. Fox Sr., who has voted six times since his death in 1987, mysteriously switched registration this year (1991) from Republican to Democrat. W VisitNewsoftheWeird. blogspot.com and WeirdUniverse.net.

GOVERNMENT IN ACTION! -- Apparently, the federal government failed to foresee that fighting two wars simultaneously, with historically high woundsurvival rates, might produce surges of disability claims. Just in the last year, according to an April USA Today report, claims are up over 50 percent, and those taking longer than two months to resolve have more than doubled. (Tragically, Marine Clay Hunt, who was a national spokesman for disability rights and who suffered from post-traumatic stress, killed himself on March 31, ultimately frustrated that the Department of Veterans Affairs had lost his paperwork. “I can track my pizza from Pizza Hut on my BlackBerry,” he once said, “but the VA can’t find my claim for four months.”) -- Close Enough for Government Work: (1) A contract security guard at Detroit’s McNamara Building (which houses the FBI and other vital federal offices) was found in March to have casually laid aside, for three weeks, a suspicious package that turned out to be a real bomb. (It was, eventually, safely detonated.) (2) The Census Bureau got it right this time around for Lost Springs, Wyo. In 2000, it had missed 80 percent of the population (counting 1 instead of 5). The new total (4) is correct,

Homeless Charles Mader, a convicted sex offender in Albuquerque, was arrested in May for failure to report his change of address, as required by law. Mader had moved out of his registered address, which was a Dumpster, into a community shelter.

hether you consider its green, grassy expanse and fitness-friendly amenities in Wilkes-Barre or Kingston, there’s no question that Kirby Park is a destination for many of Northeastern Pennsylvania’s residents. It’s a place to get fresh air, celebrate the 4th of July with a few thousand of your neighbors and, this upcoming weekend, it’ll be a place to experience a wide array of music while honoring the very people Memorial Day is about: Soldiers and veterans. The 4th Annual Mayday Music Festival will be held Sunday, May 29 from noondusk. The free, all-ages event, which will be held rain or shine, features six stages of

DJs, drums-and-bass acts, dubstep, hip-hop and live bands, plus vendors and live art. Proceeds will again benefit Soldiers’ Angels, a volunteer-led nonprofit that began in 2004 to provide aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, veterans and their families. Having Soldiers’ Angels as Mayday’s beneficiary was an easy choice for the festival’s organizers. “Well, it’s Memorial Day weekend, so it just fit,”

explained Gaje, a Mayday planning committee member and DJ who will be among the event’s many performers. While raising funds for Soldiers’ Angels is at the core of Mayday, Sunday is also about the music. “Most of the music is nonmainstream music, first of all, so that’s something that definitely doesn’t happen around here,” said DJ Hersh, who is also on the Mayday planning committee and a performer. “A lot of people look at it and go, ‘Dubstep? I don’t know what dubstep is,’” Gaje said, referring to the genre of electronic dance

music that got its start in South London. Comments like that are why organizers wanted six different stages at Mayday. “We have the main stage, where people can say, ‘Hey, I know these bands. I’ll come see these bands.’ But then during set break, they can walk around and check out the other music and maybe they find something that they like,” Gaje said. “It’s all about exposing people to new things. That doesn’t really happen in this area, ever. It’s always the same thing, same places. “Well, maybe this will give them an opportunity to hear what we’re about and open people’s eyes a little bit.”

A LABOR OF LOVE

the first event in 2008, as has donations for Soldiers’ Angels. Last year, Mayday raised $2,200, which was $1,300 more than the previous year. Put together in about two months without a lot of promotion, the first Mayday had four stages, and in subsequent years, organizers sometimes had a hard time finding enough artists to fill the stages for the day. “Now people are asking us, and we’re trying to make room,” Gaje shared. “It’s not that there’s really a decision process, it’s kind of first come, first serve. … The word is definitely getting out, and that’s a good thing.” Depending on the number of people performing on a particular stage, most of the sets

he lineup and attendance at Mayday, which will feature more than 50 acts throughout the course of the day, has grown steadily since

There isn’t really a lot of activities around here for people to do that are free that are in the park. People like the park, it’s nice out, it’s springtime, people love music — it just gives people something to do.” – DJ Gaje

Clockwise from top: Mayday goers make their way through Kirby Park at last year’s event, a crowd watches The Woody Browns Project perform at the pavilion and another look at the band’s set. “The money we make from DJing that night goes right to the event,” Hersh added. In fact, Gaje said that most of the money they make from their DJing gigs from January until Mayday goes toward funding the festival. “We try not to spend too much out of pocket, but it does come out,” he said. While generating money for the cause is “No. 1,” there’s another reason Mayday planners put their own money toward this labor-of-love event. “There isn’t really a lot of activities around here for people to do that are free that are in the park,” Gaje said. “People like the park, it’s nice out, it’s springtime, people love music — it just gives people something to do. We like being behind that.”

‘GOOD TIME, GOOD MUSIC’

A

side from hours of music and the bucolic setting, there is also the live art component of Mayday. Local artists will be on hand to paint, sculpt and more. “We have a whole bunch of friends in the art scene, so we thought why not have those people participate? Just because they don’t play music, we shouldn’t exclude them,” Gaje said. “We’d like to give people the opportunity to watch artists at work.” Plus there will be numerous vendors on hand, including Sprint, Notis Gyro King, Woody Brown’s barbecue — not to be confused with The Woody Browns Project, which will play on the main stage and took its

name from the restaurant — and more. Watching the growth of Mayday has given Gaje and Hersh much to be excited about with this year’s event. “Every year has been a really good time, so we’re hoping this year is just as much fun,” Gaje

said. “I’m looking forward to just being in the park all day with friends having a good time with good music.” Hersh agreed. “You get to hear everything — you can walk around the park one time and hear six different sounds.” W

will run 45 minutes to an hour, with some DJs playing together. Filling the stages — or in this year’s case, making room for interested performers — isn’t the hardest part in putting on Mayday: It’s coming up with funding for the free event, and not just in getting donations for Soldiers’ Angels. Organizers need to pay for the park, insurance, flyers, T-shirts and other incidentals. To help counter some of the backend costs, there have been several “Mayday Warmup” events held at local establishments. “They’re just events where we DJ and have bands and stuff,” Gaje said. “The money collected at those we use to cover our (Mayday) costs. We’ll do collection buckets, and that cash money we use toward costs.”

Reinterpreting 'rags to riches'

“Girl in Translation” By Jean Kwok WWWWW

eally good fiction inspires. It motivates. And it leaves the reader wanting more. It doesn’t hesitate, or have lilting moments of disappointment. It keeps going, like a proverbial flash train through the cerebral cortex. In her debut book, “Girl in Translation,” Jean Kwok satisfies all of these points, and does so with such an air of unabashed candor, it’s hard to believe she hasn’t done this before. “Girl in Translation” follows the lives of Kimberly Chang, who narrates, and her mother, immigrants who came to America riddled with debt. They are forced (by the gracious aunt who helped them emigrate) to live in a roach-and-mouse-infested Brooklyn apartment with no heat and broken windows and work in a sweatshop, where the only certainty for Kimberly and her mother is a life spent in squalor making far below minimum wage for taxing and torturous labor. Eleven-year-old Kimberly quickly adapts to her environment, using her intelligence to slowly but surely raise her mother and herself out of the downtrodden life to which they were stricken. Her ability to balance the two lives she is leading — factory worker and private

school scholar — becomes another one of her many talents, and the book is shot through with references to the incongruities in the young girl’s life. With each turn of the page, it becomes more and more clear that Kwok’s protagonist is simply inspiring. Kimberly comes to a completely different country with almost no handle on the language or dialect, and manages to blossom into a young woman with Ivy-League potential, all while helping her mother make quota at the sweatshop and maintaining a sometimes-sordid social life. The narrator may seem to have more drive than any real person could, but Kwok knows the story all too well, as her life followed almost the same path as Kimberly’s. One would not be completely wrong to propose the idea that “Girl In Translation” is an autobiographical work, but the fact that it is fiction allows Kwok to take artistic license with her main character, making it that much more interesting and profound. Kwok utilizes a number of writing techniques that blend together to create the perfect formula for a phenomenal pageturner. When Kimberly is speaking to people whose native language is English, the conversation is often written with phonetic spelling, so the reader is right there struggling with her to understand the language and the intent behind it. Throughout “Girl in Translation,” Kimberly proves time and time again that, even as a child, she doesn’t need anyone to take care of her: Not the love of her life, her teachers or even her mother. She is relentlessly independent and fiercely determined, a refreshing departure from the “damsel in distress” role that is a mainstay of modern and traditional fiction. The author’s background knowledge of the topic makes it easy to believe the authenticity of the details of the plot, but her writing is so fluid and inspired, it seems she would have produced a dazzling novel regardless of the subject matter. If this book is any indication of Kwok’s future success, fiction writers all over the world should brace themselves for some brutal competition.

SIXX: A.M.

“This Is Gonna Hurt”

WWWW

Reality rocks Sixx: A.M.’s “This Is Gonna Hurt” is the followup to the band’s 2008 debut, “The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack;” both albums the brainchild of the band’s leader, Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx. Whereas the first record was more of a chronological recollection of Sixx’s heroin overdose and “death” before medical resuscitation, the new record is a celebration of all things life, death, love, despair and hope. Sixx has expelled his demons and now illustrates that life may not be pretty — but it’s a reality for

better or worse. Sonically, this is the way to make a rock ’n’ roll record today. Guitarist DJ Ashba creates a layered wall of Marshallstacked crunch, vocalist James Michael soars and holds tight to a melody, while Sixx’s bass thumps along in the dense mix. Drums were programmed, but they don’t come off as fake. “Lies of the Beautiful People” is a riff-intensive homage to beauty being skin deep. The ugliness within human nature is explored in the gentle piano ballad “Skin,” while the counterpoint of redemption is touched on in tracks like the sunny, country-tinged “Sure Feels Right.” The song is as about as “happy” as anything associated with Sixx could be, with lyrics like “the sun breaks through the L.A. sky/ for some damn reason it makes me smile.” The inevitable return to thematic emotional decay and burnout turns up on “Deadlihood.” Celebrating the fallout from life lived on the edge, the record teems with the vibrancy of humanity itself, rocking itself out from underneath the wreckage. This is a must for any fan of edgy, brutally honest modern hard rock.

Galactic “The Other Side of Midnight: Live in New Orleans”

Big Easy bravado

The name of the band might conjure up some extraterrestrial images, but Galactic, with its smooth tempos and bounce/hip-hop blend of jazzy dance tunes, is only supernatural in its ability to pay homage to the town that raised it with rhythmically wellcrafted resonance. Earlier this month, the New Orleans outfit offered up “The Other Side of Midnight: Live in New -- Mark Uricheck Orleans,” a live counterpart to their Weekender Correspondent critically-acclaimed 2010 album, “YaKa-May.” Recorded at legendary Big

“Circuital”

Easy nightclub Tipitinas, the energetic release substantiates the band’s apparent reputation as an extraordinary live act. Galactic’s sound reinterprets the bounce music genre, a form of urban dance music especially prevalent in the arena of bayou music, with jolts of hiphop and jazz injected in an infectious manner that leaves even the most obstinate listener grooving to the beat. The album features myriad guest performers, such as soul star Cyril Neville and bounce music aficionado Big Freedia, and on songs like “Heart of Steel,” and “Encore: Double It,” it’s easy to appreciate the chemistry that makes all of the artists great collaborators. Many of the band’s songs have their own specific and distinct feel, and yet remain consistent with Galactic’s signature funk sound. This delicate balance is especially noticeable on the live versions of “Balkan Wedding,” with its gypsy-like beats, and “Wild Man,” a spacey-sounding song with a transcendental intro. “The Other Side of Midnight” is the perfect showcase of the band’s best tracks, and its audacity and spontaneous ambience makes one feel like they’re soaking up the untamed off-Bourbon Street nightlife in person. All that’s missing is a good beer buzz and the smell of stale booze. -- Stephanie DeBalko Weekender Staff Writer

ometimes in life, you can stray off the path for a while, never to find the same way again. In the case of The Rods, a heavy-metal band from Cortland, N.Y. that spent the ’80s opening for bands like Iron Maiden, Twisted Sister and Judas Priest — and even had a then-unknown band named Metallica open for its own headlining tour — the second time around just might be better than the first. Releasing its last CD, “Heavier Than Thou,” in 1986, The Rods — David “Rock” Feinstein, Garry Bordonaro and Carl Canedy — reunited a few years back. From that reunion came “Vengeance,” which dropped Tuesday, May 24. “(The album’s) been in the works a couple of years,” said Canedy, who called in from his home in Carbondale, where he moved 20-plus years ago; his wife is an area native. With Canedy’s ties to NEPA, The Rods will celebrate “Vengeance” with two local events. The first will be a signing and performance Wednesday, May 25 at Joe Nardone’s Gallery of Sound in Wilkes-Barre; the second will be a show at Brews Brothers in Pittston Friday, June 3. “Vengeance’s” first single, “The Code,” is a bittersweet track. It features guest vocals by Feinstein’s cousin, the late Ronnie James Dio, who Feinstein had been in Elf with. “The

Code” was one of Dio’s last recordings before he died of stomach cancer last May. “Seeing him in person in the studio was amazing,” Canedy said. “I produce a lot of great singers, but he was flawless. It was a really great time, and it was sad when he passed. For us, it’s a bittersweet thing, but it’s now part of the legacy. And when we went back in the studio to mix and listened to that voice, we all sat there in silence.” The Rods may have been out of the limelight for more than two decades, but Canedy didn’t stray far from the music industry — as a producer, the drummer worked with bands like Anthrax, Overkill and Exciter. “It really is different,” Canedy said of producing his own band versus working with others. “With The Rods, David and I are the principal songwriters, and we’ve worked together on a lot of things, so things are unspoken with us. With a younger band, there are a lot of plateaus you have to get them to … it’s also just that we’re old,” he added with a laugh. So with such a connection, why did it take The Rods more than 20 years to reunite? “We had talked about it periodically, but we all kind of moved on for a while, though there was never any animosity,” Canedy explained. The members put the band on hold to raise families and have outside careers — Feinstein opened a restaurant before forming the band Feinstein in 2004, Bordonaro is an engineer. “It wasn’t until the children moved on that we said we should

be playing now,” Canedy shared. “It was like we never left. I didn’t want to be the lounge version of The Rods. Too many times bands get back together with new members trying to do what they did in the past, so we said, ‘Let’s just move on to a new project,’ but we still had that same energy, and we’re having a blast.” Having a blast is something Canedy has been having since he first sat behind the drum kit, inspired by drummers like Carmine Appice, Ringo Starr and Tony Williams. “I didn’t play double bass, but I went out and bought another bass drum because I saw Blue Cheer on ‘American Bandstand,’” Canedy recalled. “You weren’t used to seeing bands like that on the show, and they broke into ‘Summertime Blues,’ and I thought, that looks pretty cool, and that was it for me.” Eventually, Canedy’s and Feinstein’s paths crossed as “musicians playing the same kind of music,” and the two joined forces, despite the changing climate of music in the late ’70s/early ’80s. “At the time we started The Rods, it was disco everywhere,” Canedy said. “We would play a club, and people would literally run for the door. I walked out after a show, and one the guys leaning up against the wall outside said, ‘That was horrible.’ “For a second I had to stop and think, ‘Do I really want to do this with my life?’ But I thought, ‘I’m having fun, I love W this!’”

movie review

Geoffrey Rush, Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp and Ian McShane star in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,’ the fourth installment of the ‘Pirates’ franchise.

O

Swashbucklers lose a bit of magic

ne of history’s most successful film franchises sets sail yet again in this week’s Disney adventure, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.” Johnny Depp dons the dreads for another go round as everyone’s favorite scoundrel, Captain Jack Sparrow. It has been four years since Captain Jack and the rest of the Pirate Brotherhood took on their enemies in a climactic high seas battle for the ages. Now, the good Captain has returned to England to rescue first mate Gibbs (Kevin McNally) from the hangman’s noose. Of course, nothing is ever so simple for Sparrow. As one of the most iconic characters of all time, Depp’s Sparrow is worth the price of

admission all by his lonesome. For this adventure, he has traded in the first three film’s starcrossed lovers Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley on a shiny new pair, Sam Claflin and Astrid Berges-Frisbey. As always, of course, the good Captain needs a nemesis. This time out he has managed to find two: Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane. Cruz portrays Angelica, who has a history with Captain Jack which spills over into the present. This pirate princess needs Sparrow to help her locate the Fountain of Youth so that she may save the life of her recently discovered father. The story loses all heart-warming qualities when dad is revealed to be the one pirate all pirates fear, Blackbeard (McShane).

McShane is perhaps best know for his turn on the gritty HBO period drama, “Deadwood,” where he portrayed the truly complicated Al Swearengen; he’s also the voice of “Kung Fu Panda’s” villain, Tai Lung. It suffices to say that McShane can handle the role of heavy with relative ease. Cruz finally gives Depp’s character a viable love interest and fills the void left by Knightley’s departure. Captain Jack is forced to accompany the time-stricken Blackbeard as he attempts to find the fountain. They are, however, in a race against not only time, but also the Spanish Armada and a contingent sent from England. This is perhaps the film’s biggest twist as the prototypical pirate Captain

Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) has turned his back on his brethren and is now serving the English crown. Rush has been the equal of Depp in every film of the “Pirates” franchise, and this time out is no different. Rush actually has a leg up, so to speak, as Barbossa now sports a peg-leg to complete his swashbuckling persona. “On Stranger Tides” has all of the staples that made the earlier adventures so memorable. Amazing footage on the high seas and exotic locales rife with legendary beings serve as a backdrop for a tale of old and new characters searching out one of the great mysteries of the world in the Fountain of Youth. Yet despite these triedand-true pieces, the puzzle seems to lack the magic fit of

the first three chapters. The story did not have the cohesion of the earlier films, and at times, it felt quite rushed. Some of the loss of magic can be attributed to the great changes in the supporting cast, but one remains concerned that perhaps this magnificent adventure has become somewhat stale. Depp and Rush are both still utterly brilliant in their respective roles, and the franchise is not folding up its flag. On the contrary, the film’s ending leaves more questions than answers, so it is somewhat safe to assume that at some point in the not-sodistant future, word will reach our shores of a new quest being undertaken by Captain Jack Sparrow. We can only hope that journey’s prize is the franchise’s mojo.

The wake-up call

The Weekender is getting ready for one of their hottest issues.

And we are looking for swimsuit models.

Did we mention a special party with prizes for the this year’s featured models?

hen I got banned from the basic cable clip show “The Soup” for having the temerity to petition to be shot by Joel McHale with a toy gun, I quickly learned how to curb my enthusiasm when it came to networking. Within two weeks of moving to the City of Angels, I managed to land myself a second internship at E! After meeting a producer for the show “The Daily 10,” a fast-paced entertainment news show, I mentioned I had two days off during the week and would like to job-shadow her. “I have a better idea! How would you like to come and intern for us?” I was asked. “Absolutely,” I agreed. There are very few moments in life where someone can say their life is perfect, and that was one of those moments for me. I was not only pursuing my dreams, but I was excelling at them. I had the best roommate, an apartment that looked like a Vegas hotel, two of the most prestigious internships in my field at the same time, and thanks to a combination of proud parents and student loans, an incessant flow of money in my bank account that allowed me to live it up! I was in heaven. Just when it seemed like nothing could go wrong, I got a phone call from my mother, who was in hell. “He’s dying!” she screamed, barely able to catch her breath. “Oh my God, he’s dying!” That day, my mom’s brother, my Uncle Eric, lost his battle with cancer. He was only 51

It’s not all fun and games for Justin. years old. I didn’t know how to feel. My uncle Eric was never a part of my life. I hadn’t seen him in eight years, and only remember meeting him a few times. There was no established relationship. An agglomeration of thoughts flooded my mind: Why am I not sad? How do people get so wrapped up in their own lives that they can manage to go eight years without seeing each other? How should I feel? I felt guilty that as my life was coming together, my mother’s was falling apart. I was sorry for her loss. I was angry I didn’t know him. That night I walked six blocks in the rain to buy my mom a sympathy card. I never mailed it. I didn’t know what to say … W Follow Justin on Twitter @sorrymomanddad and check out Facebook.com/ sorrymomanddad.

WEEKENDER, WEDNESDAY, MAY 25, 2011

sign language By Caeriel Crestin

Weekender Correspondent

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Beliefs change. What you believed in as a child probably doesn’t hold much weight for you now. Hell, what you believed in last year might no longer ring quite as true. Of course, if you’re flip-flopping all over the place and espousing different ideas about life every other day, no one’s likely to take you particularly seriously. But if you’ve changed your mind after careful reflection and inquiry, that’s commendable. Own it. Those with open minds may very well come around to your new point of view, or at least accept and tolerate it. Those who don’t, well, they can just suck it, can’t they? CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Small deceptions are sometimes necessary in order to support a greater truth. You can hope and strive for 100 percent transparency regarding everything you do and feel, but sometimes that’s more trouble than it’s worth. Does your partner really need to know about that work crush (that you’ll never act on)? It’ll just make them pointlessly insecure or jealous. In this example, the deeper truth is that you want to be with your partner, regardless of how cute you find someone else. Stick to that, even if it means glossing over some of the actual details.

PAGE 30

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) When someone calls you out on a mistake you’ve made, sometimes your first instinct is to lash out defensively or evade the blame somehow. Of course, upon further reflection, you often realize that they were right, even if you managed to get out of it. Try to be open-minded this week when offered a critique. It’s not an attempt to tear you down or belittle you, but actually to help you or otherwise improve a situation. Try to accept it with good grace, regardless of what you’re feeling inside. You may feel irked no matter what. Hide it — for now, at least. If you’re still vexed a week from now, speak up then. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) While you may be justified in pointing out hypocrisy anywhere you find it, doing so doesn’t make you particularly fun to be around. The fact is, almost everyone falls short of their (and your) ideal, and if you insist on spelling it out each time you observe it, you’ll only alienate or offend people. Your intentions are good, but your actions and words will generally vex rather than improve people, as you imagine. Biting your tongue this week will earn you

STACY LONDON (pictured) May 25 1969 HANK WILLIAMS JR. May 26 1949 CHRIS COLFER May 27 1990 KYLIE MINOGUE May 28 1968 ADRIAN PAUL May 29 1959 CEE-LO GREEN May 30 1974 BROOK SHIELDS May 31 1965

more friends than your best-intentioned criticisms. Maybe “improving” people is more important to you than having friends, but that’s your call. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22) People love who (and what) they love, and there’s not much you can say or do about it. This is particularly confounding when you don’t understand their choices, and horrifying when those choices are quite clearly bad for them (when someone opts to stay with a chronically abusive spouse, for instance). As confusing and upsetting as this surely is, your own role in the situation is actually quite simple. You have two choices: Accept it, or walk away. If you choose to leave in protest of their decisions, you’re also free to burn bridges by offering your uncensored opinion of those choices. But if you choose to stay, you’re probably best off biting your tongue. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21) As it turns out, your help may not always be desired. However, when someone else’s well-being is at stake, your conscience should compel you to try to help anyway. You must be prepared to be told to piss off and mind your own business. It’ll happen. But not offering aid because you fear being rejected is just silly. This is about what’s best for the situation, not for your ego. The right thing to do is step up and accept the consequences from there, whatever they are. You know and believe this, too. This week, be sure to act on that belief.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21) Being forced to abide by someone else’s antiquated or backwards standards has to be incredibly galling. However, this is a pick-your-battles scenario. Is this one really worth fighting? It might be, but be sure, before you go in guns blazing. This could be a Thunderdome (“two men enter, one man leaves!”) level duel, so unless you’re really prepared to see it through to its dramatic (and perhaps tragic) conclusion, you may simply want to keep quiet and just get through it, as annoying and frustrating as that probably is. Live to fight another day, if you will. CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Repeatedly testing boundaries is what some people do. They can’t help it. They’re told no, but like a naughty child they’re compelled to keep trying anyway. Perhaps it’s kind of like a game for them. Of course, it’s exhausting and annoying for you, but unfortunately right now there’s no easy way to end it without going nuclear (to the worst-case, last-resort scenario). That’s always an option, but it has consequences all its own. Since a less extreme solution might work in a week or three, perhaps just grit your teeth and bear it until then? AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18) Here’s the cliché: Give a man a fish, he eats for a day; teach him to fish, he eats for a lifetime. Obviously, the latter scenario is preferable for all concerned. However, you may be balking at this situation, for whatever reason — perhaps you don’t

think someone is capable of or interested in “learning to fish.” Or they’re just not worth the time to you. However, even if you look at this from a purely selfish standpoint, trying to impart some selfsufficiency is still the way to go. Just suck it up and give it a go. Trust me on this. PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20) Friends keep secrets. But some secrets are heavy burdens to bear; it’s not fair to ask someone else to carry them for long. An example of something like this is the revelation that you’ve been cheating on your spouse. Suddenly, you’ve entangled your friend in a mess and forced them to potentially lie to someone else they may consider a friend. Think before you share this stuff. If you’re prepared to put it all out in the open soon, and this is just the first step, that’s great. But don’t expect someone else to hold up half the weight of a lie you’re telling for more than a very short time. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) How many times in your life has someone forced you to try something new, so you could discover you actually liked it? Didn’t you regret, afterwards, how long you dragged your feet, put up walls, and made excuses? Hopefully, you were at least mature enough to realize and admit you were silly for having done these things. But then you went ahead and did it again, didn’t you? When’s that going to stop? Sure, some things you’re certain you’ll never like, and you may even be right. Try them anyway. The worst thing that can happen is an unpleasant moment when your suspicions are confirmed. The best is that you could discover a new love. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) If you’re a serious tally-keeper, you probably know that the favor being asked of you this week carries with it no obligation. The favor-asker may even already “owe” you. Do it anyway. This isn’t about counting pennies and keeping tabs on who’s done what for who. Look at the bigger picture and remember there may be things happening “off the books,” i.e., unnoticed by you. Even if that’s not the case, keeping the peace and making people happy is absolutely worth the hassle of doing the favor, without complaint. You’ll probably never be able to call in this “debt,” but you will be repaid, one way or another—even if you never quite know how. That ought to be good enough.

I

Going bananas

am a professional columnist. Professional in the sense that I get paid. I certainly don’t think of myself as particularly accomplished or anything. I sent my blog link to nepablogs.blogspot.com, a site that publishes blog links from NEPA. The webmaster noted that I am an “active columnist” in the Weekender, which means I still write for them, not that I am active. If they only knew. Sometimes even breathing steady is more active than I like to be. I look at these other bloggers in wonder. They write about all kinds of serious stuff. Politics. Environment. Crimes in the streets. Me, I write about bananas. I love bananas. I eat them twice a day. I would even if I didn’t like them because bananas are very high in potassium, which prevents strokes and leg cramps. So I eat ’em up. I like smaller ones. I have a smaller appetite now, although my waistline has yet to catch up to that fact. Shopping for bananas is a crap shoot. Buy them when they are too green, and they are hard and not so sweet. Buy them already yellow, and they go bad before I eat them. Nothing worse than a bad banana. So we try to buy a mix, but

we always run out. Since we only shop once a week, it’s a dilemma. Not on the order of politics. Environment. Crimes in the streets. But serious enough to me. As I write, we are out of bananas. This makes me sad. I hope I don’t get a leg cramp or a stroke. I know folks who have had strokes. They are as serious as a heart attack, those strokes. I went to the convenient store this morning. They had a big basket of bananas. Apples too. The sign above them said $.69. I looked at it in disbelief. I asked the lady behind the counter if that was $.69 each for a banana. She said, “Yeah, or an apple, take your pick.” I would eat the newspapers I was buying before I would pay $.69 for a single banana. Gerrity’s has them for $.39 a pound! That’s about six to eight depending on the size. I like the small ones. The woman took my dollar for the newspapers, and we made no further remark about bananas, apples, politics, environment. Crimes in the streets.

tech talk

By Nick Delorenzo

Special to the Weekender

Currency circa 2011? L ike every other facet of life, the way we do business has been undeniably altered by technology. Electronic fund transfers, RFID credit card readers, PayPal, you name it. The world’s banking systems are entering the 21st century, a little slower than some other areas, but they are progressing to be sure. But in many ways the Internet is like a Wild West frontier town. If I find the right person, I can work out a trade or send them credit without taxes or the U.S. government entering into the equation. And like the Old West, money is always changing hands. I can buy a widget for my car from a store that only accepts Euros just as easily as

I can buy a widget from the auto shop down the street in U.S. dollars. And now a new player has entered the fray: BitCoin. BitCoin is a peer-to-peer currency. Anyone can accept a BitCoin, provided they have the right program to verify that it’s valid. And anyone can generate a BitCoin by using an algorithm, or code sequence, to find valid BitCoin numbers. It’s not as easy as it sounds: The work is just as intensive for your computer as mining would be for you, and like mining, you may come up empty handed. There are no taxes, there are no barriers, it takes no time to transfer the BitCoins, and they can be rendered into physical currency — hard cash — by storing them on a USB stick or some other physical

medium. I spoke with George Palickar, a Times Leader employee who’s also a programmer familiar with the project, to get his impressions on BitCoin. He noted that it was a valid exchange, since creation of the BitCoins must involve work that can’t be easily reproduced. He also noted some potential downsides. “I think that it might be made illegal,” Palickar said. “This is essentially unregulated currency, and the Fed might have a problem with that. Once they get wind of this, I think it might take them about a year before they try to put a stop to it.” Palickar also pointed out that since it’s a peer-to-peer technology, like file sharing (think Napster or Limewire) it

would be difficult or close to impossible to stop once it gets under way. To check out BitCoin, go to BitCoin.org. W

Groove Train has released a self-titled debut CD.

Groove Train tracks ahead

PAGE 36

lthough the band Groove Train really found its groove when it first formed seven years ago, the spring of 2011 is also a special time for the group. After tearing it up at countless club dates, private parties and summer festivals over the years and being primarily known as a cover band, the project has now released its first self-titled CD of all original material. “It’s something that I’ve been talking about since the beginning,” says Groove Train keyboardist and vocalist Dave Chaump, who has had plenty of prior experience with making albums. He recorded his first CD in 1989 with the David Rose Band, a group based out of Lewisburg that made its way up to NEPA on several occasions. “At the time, we were doing it full-time,” says Chaump. “When everybody else in the region was kind of stuck on covers, we were out there plugging away with originals. I was also on Strawberry Jam’s ‘Spread The Jam’ album, I did a solo CD called ‘New Day’ … it’s something I’ve always been involved in and had

“Every day can provide a reason to write a song if you take the time to sit back and analyze it.” Groove Train keyboardist/vocalist Dave Chaump

a strong interest in.” Groove Train, based out of West Pittston, was formed in the summer of 2004. The musicians featured on the album are Chaump on keyboards and vocals, Rebecca Santoro Hetzel on vocals, Dan Bogdon on drums and Greg Bealla on bass, lead and rhythm guitars. Also now in the band, though not on the CD, is guitarist Dan Armbruster. Sometimes self-described as a dance/party band, Chaump says the group prides itself on diversity. “We do everything from the ’50s to today’s Top 40,” he says.

“And Groove Train has always featured multiple vocalists, and that’s enabled us to really cover a wide gamut of artists. Our main vocalist, Rebecca, is outstanding and allows us to do everything from Donna Summer to Beyonce to Colbie Caillat to Freda Payne. You name it. We cover all styles. And that’s something that we really hang our hat on — having that versatility and being able to do it convincingly.” The same theory now applies to the new album, on which vocal duties are also shared. Work on the CD began about 18 months ago. It was recorded at Chaump’s own Damon St. Studios in West Pittston and was mixed and mastered at SI Studios in Old Forge. Chaump served as the principal songwriter on the album’s 10 melodic tracks, with Hetzel, Bealla and Bogdon also making some contributions. He says “myriad of different factors” inspired the songwriting. “Of course you have your real life experiences and scenarios that you go through, and other songs germinate from something fictitious, or have a universal message that you’d like to use and express to people,” he says. “Every day can provide a reason to write a song if you take the time to sit back and analyze it.” Tracks on the CD include “Give Me Hope,” “Dance The Night Away,” “Party On Down The Line” and “The One.” It is available through the band’s website and is also downloadable through www.digstation.com, iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon. Chaump thinks listeners will find something to connect with and, of course, to groove with. “When somebody buys the Groove Train CD, I hope they can appreciate the variety of musical styles, and I hope they can appreciate the level of musicianship and the care for production,” he says. “And I hope they can appreciate the craftsmanship W of the songs.”

T

he May 15, 2010 edition of the Billboard 200 featured the debut album of B.o.B atop the charts, selling more than 80,000 copies. A year after his No. 1 LP, â&#x20AC;&#x153;B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray,â&#x20AC;? the Atlanta emcee still canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe how quickly the success came about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to stay away from a lot of stats all the time,â&#x20AC;? Bobby Ray said in an exclusive sitdown interview with â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ralphie Radio Show.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get too caught up in stats. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather just play the game and look at the stats at the end of the game, but we worked hard on that album.â&#x20AC;? The success is yielding dividends a year later, as B.o.B, who performed for students at The University of Scranton on May 13, continues to tour the globe performing hits like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on You,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Airplanesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Magic.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You define your own success,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just trying to get to the point where you have steady income as an artist, that takes years to get. So, that fire that keeps you (making music), thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what creates the type of stamina that will allow you to continue to be a touring artist or whatever type of artist you want to be.â&#x20AC;? As a matter of fact, the rapper credits an artist he toured with, Atlantic Records labelmate Lupe Fiasco, as someone who helped him get to that point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lupe really looked out for me in a huge way, especially at the point that I was at,â&#x20AC;? admits B.o.B, who opened for Fiasco last spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember on tour he presented me with a cake for my album release day, and he bought an album. That was a very memorable moment for

me.â&#x20AC;? B.o.B received more than a cake and an album purchase from Fiasco, though. Both â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Youâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Airplanesâ&#x20AC;? were originally slated for Lupeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lasers.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the music industry, there are songs that float around for some years that have nothing but a hook and a beat,â&#x20AC;? B.o.B. explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the times those are the songs that the label has as like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Alright, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna push these songs (on certain artists).â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost like an outfit. As an artist, sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrating because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wanna wear that outfit, I wanna make my own outfit and wear it because I have a sense of style also and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty sure my fans like the type of outfits I wear.â&#x20AC;? B.o.B was aware that Fiasco had first dibs on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Airplanes.â&#x20AC;? Judging the results, it seems the track agreed with his wardrobe in the end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people say A&R and labels are wrong and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about. But I have to admit, sometimes us as artists donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes we get too caught up in what we want, and it becomes more about proving a point than it does making music for the fans.â&#x20AC;? Finding common ground, while not compromising himself as an artist, is something that B.o.B continues to strive for as he creates his sophomore album. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like this is a very special project,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even more special than the first album.â&#x20AC;?

hopping for gifts is a most enjoyable activity, if you are into giving unique gifts, that is. Being the type of person who refuses to ever shop off bridal or baby-shower registries, I am always on the quest for the perfect gift. I want to show that the gift is from the heart, something I really thought about and took the time to choose — not just something that was easy to wrap. Boutique shopping is always the way to go when searching for special presents. And I love having a collection of international boutiques, so to speak, right at my fingertips. Etsy is an absolute dream for people on the ultimate gift quest. Although often dangerous to browse (I always end up buying a bunch of items for myself as well) if you can stay focused, you can find treasures that will be sure to delight your recipient. Here are some of my favorite unique items, and the Etsy stores’ profile names where you can find them.. W

WHERE’S THE BEEFY KING? Beefy King (76 S. Main St., Wilkes-Barre) has closed temporarily as owners hope to relocate to a location with a drive-through window within the next few months. The restaurant opened last June in a former Quiznos, which closed in 2009. Owner and former Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguin Dennis Bonvie lent his name to the Orlando, Fla.based franchise. “We’re just looking for a better spot for our customers; we just want to make them happy,” co-owner Rebecca Briskie told The Times Leader last week. “It’s a great product that we have, and we just want to make it easier for them to get it and go.” Briskie shared that there are two buildings in the Wilkes-Barre area designed for a drive-through restaurant that owners are looking at, but wasn’t ready to give the exact locations yet. One spot that could be a fit is the former Taco Bell at 386 S. Main St., which closed recently. The closing of Beefy King does not affect its neighbor, Blue Chip Gourmet, which has the same owners but is a separate business. A chef prepares food at last year’s FlavorFest. BREWS ON THE MOVE Breaker Brewing Company, owned by Chris Miller and Mark Lehman, hopes to soon expand its operations by moving to the former St. Joseph Church property at 783 E. Northampton St. in Wilkes-Barre Twp. Breaker Brewing Company’s beers, which originally got its start seven years ago in Miller’s home in Plains Twp., can be found at many local bars and restaurants. An increasing demand for its products caused Miller and Lehman to look for a bigger space to brew more beer and also to eventually open a restaurant and gift shop. “What I like to tell people is picture a fancy gift shop, like a museum gift shop, with a restaurant and brewery on site,” Miller said during an interview with The Times Leader. Miller also shared that the move and expansion would give Breaker Brewing Company a chance to get its products in markets like Allentown and Philadelphia, where the company gets “a lot of inquiries from,” he said. “But we need more space before committing ourselves.” Negotiations are ongoing for the purchase of the church, but Miller said a closing could happen this week. For more info on the brewery, visit breakerbrewingcompany.com.

Delectable dining in Dunmore W

with the rotolo alla Medici ($13), spinach pasta rolled with cheese and prosciutto with Bolognese sauce. Urso knew almost instantly that none of the ample fish, chicken or steak dishes would suffice when there was Braciola di vitello alla Marsala ($18.25) in his midst. He could never pass up veal, especially when it’s in Marsala sauce with mushrooms. Our appetizers arrived, and we quickly tucked in. Urso had four slices of salty prosciutto and four large discs of creamy mozzarella topped with pesto. Flavorful roasted red peppers rounded out his amazing starter. I had five slices of delicious salami and an ample supply of pungent Asiago, which went perfectly with the kalamata olives. Our included salad course preceded the main event, and neither Urso nor I were disappointed in our entrees. My rotolo alla Medici was one of the most amazing pasta dishes I’ve ever had. Despite its large portion, the spinach pasta was light, with just a hint of prosciutto flavor and saltiness, but the hearty Bolognese was by far the best part. Urso’s dinner featured four sizeable pieces of veal, and the appealing scent of Marsala wafted across the table, tempting me to take a bite of the tender dish. There wasn’t a lot of sauce, which was nice because it meant the Marsala was infused into the veal, which really made it even more incredible. His accompanying pasta, which he added sweet sausage to for an extra

$2.95, was a meal in itself. The sausage was so fresh, I could taste the fragrant fennel in every bite I stole when Urso wasn’t looking. While we were so satiated that we both needed doggy bags, with a meal as fantastic as we had just had, dessert at La Cucina was something we couldn’t refuse. In typical La Cucina fashion, the dessert decision-making process wasn’t easy, not with a plethora of choices. I pushed for the cassata (zabaione and chocolate gelato with a semifreddo center and candied fruit), while Urso pulled for the Italian staple, tiramisu ($4.50). I conceded, but only because he promised that we could return — soon. As I dug my spoon into the rich espresso/liquor-laced ladyfingers and

mascarpone, I wondered if there was anything more delectable than a liquorsoaked ladyfinger. “No,” Urso said, sipping his decaf cappuccino, “but dinner sure was.”

ord of mouth is a great way to hear about a good restaurant, especially when you get to hear praise accidentally. Case in point: Last week as my date Urso and I were settling into our booth at the very homey and comfortable La Cucina in Dunmore, I overheard the man behind us say, “You don’t have to go to Tuscany, you can just go to La Cucina.” Italian food lovers that we are, Urso and I grinned excitedly at each other and snapped open our menus, ready to go to Tuscany ourselves, fueling up on the yummy complimentary cheesy garlic bread first, of course. Our journey began as we perused the appetizer section, which offered 12 items ranging from enticing escargots and crab-stuffed mushrooms to calamari and bruschetta. Since Urso and I couldn’t decide between the prosciutto di Parma ($9.25) with fresh mozzarella and roasted peppers or the Tuscan salami with Asiago cheese and olives ($8.25), we got both. When in Italy … When it came to choosing an entree, I couldn’t make up my mind and needed to ask our friendly server, Molly, for extra time to decide. Despite having a craving for pasta, I passed on La Cucina’s pasta night specials, where I could have chosen from eight different pastas and four sauces, and focused my attention on the regular pasta menu. Complete with manicotti, cheese tortelloni with Bolognese sauce, creamy penne with sausage and mushrooms, linguini with red or white seafood sauce, it was hard to choose just one, but in the end, I went

hen we think of ideas on how to protect the environment, a lot of thoughts come up, but one thing most people are not too familiar with is using organic fertilizer. Bear Creek Organics is a local red worm farm and organic fertilizer company located in the mountains of Bear Creek. The company produces a valuable fertilizer known as Pocono Worm Poop. As strange as it may sound, these worms are really quite beneficial. “With the help of red worms, Bear Creek Organics is facilitating the recycling of organic waste and transforming this material into a valuable organic fertilizer,” said Richard Mitchell Jr., the company’s founder and owner. “We have been working closely with local businesses, communities and educational institutions to reduce the amount of organic material being sent to landfills and to reduce chemical fertilizer and pesticide use in our environment.” Compost use has a variety of environmental benefits. By recycling, Bear Creek Organics is helping to reconnect the broken cycle of nature by diverting organic waste away from landfills and recycling the nutrients and energy back into the soil. “We are trying to provide a new way to recycle,” Mitchell said. “Over the past three months alone, we have prevented more than 10,000 pounds of organic matter from entering our local landfills.” Community involvement is crucial for the process to work. Bear Creek Organics hands out empty buckets with lids for families to use to collect kitchen scraps. These buckets are then collected once a week and

Bear Creek Organics’ founder and owner Richard Mitchell Jr. brought to the facility to begin transformation into fertilizer. The organic waste that is collected is fed to the composting worms and then turned into worm poop or worm castings. “The worm castings are packaged in re-used plastic buckets from Wegmans,” said Mitchell. “The production of our products has nearly zero impact on the environment and actually helps rescue valuable resources from being sent to landfills.” Not only is this a great product for the environment, it’s perfect for gardeners that are looking to get the best out of their garden. “Anne Poole, the head gardener at the Lands at Hillside Farms, said that our Worm Poop was the best organic fertilizer she has had the chance to work with,” said Mitchell. For more information, you can visit Bear Creek Organics on Facebook or e-mail BearCreekOrganics@gmail.com. Their website, BearCreekOrganics.com, will be up and running soon. W
