THE DECEMBERISTS — ‘I’ll Be Your Girl’ THE GOOD: Northwest indie rockers the Decemberists continue to morph and progress on their eighth. THE BAD: “Girl” brings about mixed emotions. THE NITTY GRITTY: If you discovered the band during its humble beginnings, you were no doubt attracted to frontman Colin Meloy’s deft storytelling. The man could spin a Victorian era tragedy or pirate tale like no one else fronting a rock band. Sadly, the Decemberists have been drifting away from those character studies for a few years. “Girl” continues

NATHANIEL RATELIFF & THE NIGHT SWEATS — ‘Tearing at the Seams’ THE GOOD: Modern R&B/blue-eyed soul dudes Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats dodge the sophomore slump while cranking out more funky, authentic jams. THE BAD: Since the guys crossed over BIG TIME with what was kind of a novelty hit (“S.O.B.” even prominently used in “Bar Rescue” promos),

that drift. They’re experimenting with more pronounced beats, some synthetic sounds and ambiguous lyrics. So you can’t accuse the band of being stuck in a musical rut. Yet the earlier stuff is still more intriguing. But the grand melodies and captivating arrangements remain intact. So whether it’s the foreboding pop of “Your Ghost,” the catchy cynicism spread across “Everything Is Awful” or the playful intimacy on the title cut, we’re given more than a few good reasons to come back. BUY IT?: Definitely. Rateliff and company run the risk of being deemed a “one-hit wonder.” The mainstream be damned! This band deserves better. THE NITTY GRITTY: So it would be wise NOT to pass up “Tearing,” a record just as fun and gritty as its predecessor. From soulful pop tracks such as “A Little Honey” to ripping stompers such as “Intro” to more emotional bits like the title track, the new album rarely falters. It’s a smoky session with influences hailing from Memphis to Chicago, full of songs cut from the same cloth but varied enough to keep our moods swinging. No tampering with this tried-and-true formula required — Rateliff gives us more good stuff that’s essentially timeless. BUY IT?: Yeah!!

record of highs and lows. THE NITTY GRITTY: UMO has never made a GREAT album. It’s always been about halfway-decent collections containing some GREAT songs. “Sex & Food” is no different; its greatest strength is not the tunes but rather the unpredictable changes in mood and tempo. This is a highly varied collection. Nielson moves effortlessly from the catchy thrash of “Major League Chemicals” to the bluesy “Ministry of Alienation” to the bouncy, bubbly syrup making up “Hunnybee.” “American Guilt” is punchy and direct; “This Doomsday,” low-key and mysterious. You get the idea. UNKNOWN MORTAL ORSure, the aggressive parts aren’t really THAT CHESTRA — ‘Sex & Food’ aggressive, and the soulful bits can resemble THE GOOD: New Zealand indie warmed-over Lenny Kravitz at times. However, rock outfit Unknown Mortal OrNielson always manages to find the happy medium chestra (mostly singer/songwriter/ that’s just pleasurable enough to keep us desiring guitarist Ruban Nielson) comes more. “Sex & Food” does satisfy. back with a soul-speckled fourth. BUY IT?: Sure. THE BAD: “Sex & Food” is a

OPEN EVERY U HO SE UN S & T SA 4PM Noon to riday Monday-Ftment in By Appo

Cultural ambassador El Rey Azteca puts homemade Mexican dishes in limelight Before opening El Rey Azteca, Gaston Romero and his wife, Margarita Cazares, had never cooked Mexican cuisine in a restaurant setting. “It’s kind of weird; we used to be a pizza shop on Blackman Street,” Romero said. “We served pizza, hoagies, pasta. But the place was small and only had tables in the front. So when we’d make food for ourselves, like beef tongue or beef tacos, we’d eat it out there. And people began to be curious about what we’d be eating. So we started giving people a taste test of the food.” Before long, the pair transformed their old restaurant, Pizza Kings, into El Rey Azteca, where they introduced their customers to the cuisine they grew up eating. The restaurant moved to a much larger space on Kidder Street in February 2016. A large Aztec mural greets customers at the door, keeping with the theme of the restaurant’s interior. A variety of Aztec imagery, from paintings to sculptures to other Mexican-themed decor, adorns the restaurant. As a nod to the old pizza shop, the couple decided to keep “King” in the title of the restaurant. El Rey Azteca, which means “the Aztec King,” nods to the native culture of Mexico preceding the Spanish conquest. Head chef Cazares prepares typical, homemade Mexican foods, such as cactus and beef tongue plus daily specials to expose people to more authentic foods. “People think Taco Bell is Mexican food, so we try to give people a taste test of what our food really is,” Romero added. “We have some Tex-Mex here, but we also cook stuff that I grew up eating. ... The restaurants around here are offering foods more for an American community, so we try to introduce real Mexican food to people.”

Staff at El Rey Azteca in Wilkes-Barre are, from left, Irvin Gomez, manager Jailene Cazares, Guadalupe Vivar and Guadalupe Canongo.

A customer favorite is the Mayan Burrito, filled with al pastor, chorizo, fried onions, rice and beans; topped with house-made Adobo sauce; garnished with cilantro, roasted jalapeno pepper cream and cheese; and served with a side of chips. “To make our Adobo sauce, we use three different types of dried chili peppers, so that really gives it a unique, homemade flavor,” Romero said. Cazares also offers a dish, the Molcajete Campecino, from her hometown in Mexico. Served in a sizzling lava rock, it feeds two and comes stuffed with steak, shrimp, roasted poblano peppers, roasted onions, mushrooms, sweet plantain and a chile jalapeno toreado in a creamy chipotle sauce. They serve it with two sides of rice, beans and tortillas. Popular drinks include the aguas frescas, which come in three flavors — tamarind, horchata Christopher Dolan / staff photographer Christopher Dolan / staff photographer and hibiscus — and are homemade.

But I think this food helps people to love me (as a Mexican) and love my culture. We need to learn how to love each other, and with food it can help people love my culture.” —Charlotte L. Jacobson

Historic Route 66

focus of new exhibit at Misericordia University

Take a ride down historic Route 66 this summer without leaving Northeast Pennsylvania. Pauly Friedman Art Gallery at Misericordia University, Dallas, presents the exhibit, “America’s Road: The Journey of Route 66,” from Saturday, June 16, through Sunday, Aug. 12. An opening reception kicks off Saturday from 5 to 7 p.m. and will feature live music and light refreshments. Curated by NRG! Exhibits, the show shares the history and fascination with the nearly 3,000-mile road that cuts through eight states. It features photographs, narrative, music and objects from the route often referred to as the “Main Street of America.” “We want to reach a family audience this summer now that the students are gone for vacation,” gallery director Lalaine Little said. “We wanted something that was highly interactive and emphasized a travel theme.” Interactive segments of the exhibit include a drive-in theater experience, a “Guess the Artist” radio show and a “Populations Change Over Time” map. The main draw of the exhibit is a photo essay by photographer and author Russell Olsen, who researched and photographed 75 classic Route 66 service stations, motor courts and cafes. The sites are juxtaposed on display with images from the mid-20th century and today. “The nostalgia really hits for me; I’ve only been in the area since 2005, but as I drive up and down our own thoroughfare, we see signs of businesses, big spots and landmarks,” Little said. “Route 66 is the same experience, from road trips with the family, the familiar places you stop, the same games you play in the car, the songs you sing. It’s very much centered around family togetherness and sharing experiences.”

Route 66 opened on Nov. 11, 1926, as one of the original highways in the country, running from Chicago through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona before ending in Santa Monica, Calif. Although the road is no longer a part of the U.S. Highway System, several states adopted sections of the road and created the state road network known as State Route 66, with parts of the historic route designated as a National Scenic Byway. To further interest in the exhibit, the gallery partnered with the Northeast Pennsylvania Region Antique Automobile Club of America to host a Car Cruise on campus Saturday, July 7, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with a rain date of Sunday, July 8. The event is free to spectators and exhibitors, but any donations made will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Northeastern Pennsylvania. A special event for children is scheduled for SUbMITTeD PhOTO Wednesday, July 18, from 5 to 8 p.m., featuring a Organized by NRG!

by Richard Roeper



“And she said, ‘We are all just prisoners here, of our own device.’” — The Eagles, “Hotel California” Welcome to the Hotel Artemis. Such a grubby place, such a bloody place. The “hotel” in this near-future sci-fi thriller is actually a secret hospital/haven/hideout for criminals who must abide by a strict set of rules lest they be forever banned from this neutral-ground sanctuary — and if that sounds like a familiar setting, you must have seen the original “John Wick” (2014). Not that first-time director and veteran screenwriter Drew Pearce (“Iron Man 3,” “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation”) doesn’t come up with some bold and visually arresting, dark and wickedly funny touches of his own. Pearce also goes deep and disturbing with the pop culture references. I mean, this is a movie that showcases the haunting 1960s hit “California Dreamin’” by the Mamas & the Papas, and also crowns its villain “The Wolf King,” which was the title of the first solo album by Mamas & the Papas frontman John Phillips, one of the most despicable monsters imaginable if the allegations by his daughter Mackenzie are true. “Hotel Artemis” is set in 2028 Los Angeles, on a day when riots are breaking out all over the city over access to clean drinking water. The madness explodes just as career criminal Waikiki (Sterling K. Brown) and his crew are robbing an L.A. bank. (Apparently, these guys weren’t keeping up with the mood in the city via social media. They seem shocked when their ill-conceived bank robbery becomes ever more complicated due to power outages and, you know, cops in tanks already on the streets right outside the bank.) After Waikiki’s reckless younger brother, Honolulu (Brian Tyree Henry), is seriously wounded in a shootout with the police, Waikiki takes Honolulu to the only place in the city where the proprietor will harbor fugitives, never give up clients to the cops AND perform rough but potentially life-saving surgery if necessary. The Hotel Artemis. Jodie Foster (in her first major role in a motion picture in some five years) is Jean Thomas,

“HOTEL ARTEMIS” aka “The Nurse,” who has been running the hotel for some 22 years and has not stepped outside even once during that time. (Suffice to say The Nurse is haunted by the past.) Dave Bautista (in a strong performance) is the hulking bodyguard/enforcer/orderly known as Everest, who will do anything to protect the sanctity of the Hotel Artemis. “Guests” at the Hotel Artemis are assigned names based on room themes. This is why Waikiki is known as Waikiki, Sofia Boutella’s international assassin is called “Nice,” and Charlie Day’s loudmouthed millionaire is “Acapulco.” (The subplot involving Day’s character is annoying and irrelevant and adds nothing to the mix.) With the help of 3D printers and laser surgical innovations (and copious amounts of painkillers), the Nurse performs surgery on the wounded guests, patching them up so they can get back out there and do their criminal thing. Meanwhile, Waikiki and Nice flirt with their past history, while Zachary Quinto’s vile and

spineless Crosby Franklin races to the Hotel Artemis with his wounded father, the crime boss known as The Wolf King (Jeff Goldblum), who runs the city. Oh, and by then we’ve already met Jenny Slate’s “Morgan,” a wounded cop with a connection to The Nurse’s tragic past. Foster and Goldblum are magnificent in their all-too-brief scenes together. (Although Goldblum has become such a cult favorite personality recently, he’s in danger of his persona overcoming his acting.) Boutella brings smoldering energy to her role as a nearly unstoppable assassin. Sterling K. Brown delivers strong work, even though he’s not playing the most well-defined of characters. Positive points to the “Hotel Artemis” for trying to achieve something original, and for the quality of the cast. But after that bloody boldness, the analogies and the life lessons and the moments of closure are all too predictable and familiar.

NOW PLAYING Action Point: Johnny Knoxville stars as the proprietor of a safety-challenged theme park threatened by the arrival of a nearby megaamusement park. With Chris Pontius, Dan Bakkedahl, Matt Schulze, Eleanor Worthington-Cox. Written by John Altschuler & Dave Krinsky; story by Knoxville, Derek Freda, Altschuler, Krinsky, Mike Judge. Directed by Tim Kirkby. Rated R. 85 minutes. — LOS ANGELES TIMES Avengers: Infinity War: Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the rest unite to battle their most powerful enemy yet — the evil Thanos — who’s on a mission to collect the Infinity Stones. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Pratt, Scarlett Johannson, Chadwick Boseman star. Written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, based on Marvel comics characters. Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo. Rated PG-13. 153 minutes. — LOS ANGELES TIMES A Quiet Place: John Krasinski is the director, co-writer and co-star (with his wife, Emily Blunt) of this neatly spun and well-crafted

thriller about a family that must maintain complete silence to avoid stirring deadly monsters. That’s a pretty nifty setup to keep the tension going from moment to moment. Rated PG-13 for terror and some bloody images. 90 minutes. ★★★ — RICHARD ROEPER Book Club: Great as it is to see Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Mary Steenburgen and Candice Bergen on the big screen, too bad they’re floundering about in this undercooked, silly and often downright inexplicable romantic comedy that plays like lesser Nora Ephron. Rated PG-13 for sex-related material throughout, and for language. 104 minutes. ★★ — RICHARD ROEPER


Breaking In: Gabrielle Union as a desperate mother hellbent on saving her two children being held in an impregnable home. With Billy Burke, Richard Cabral, Christa Miller. Written by Ryan Engle, story by Jaime Primak Sullivan. Directed by James McTeigue. Rated PG-13. 88 minutes. — LOS ANGELES TIMES

fun from start to finish, with some twisted and very funny special effects, cool production elements, terrific ensemble work — and for dessert, perhaps the best end-credits “cookie” scene ever. Rated R for strong violence and language throughout, sexual references and brief drug material. 111 minutes. ★★★1/2 — RICHARD ROEPER

Deadpool 2: Ryan Reynolds’ second turn as the cynical, witty superhero is wicked, dark

Hereditary: Toni Collette deserves Oscar consideration for her great work as a woman

convinced her mother is trying to reach out from beyond the grave to destroy her family. The shock moments in this horror film are truly stunning, and grotesque, and bizarre -- and they will stay with you long after you’ve gone home for the night. Rated for horror violence, disturbing images, language, drug use and brief graphic nudity. 123 minutes. ★★★★ — RICHARD ROEPER

SMALL SCREENS TOMB RAIDER (Action adventure, PG-13, 118 m., 2018). Star Alicia Vikander is absolutely terrific in this stripped-down origin story of the video game heroine. But the special effects sequences aren’t all that special, and many seem designed to distract us from the hokey, dopey, paper-thin plot. Rating: ★★ LOVE, SIMON (Drama, PG-13, 110 m., 2018). From the comfortable suburban setting to the likable protagonist, from the intelligent teenagers to the warm and well-meaning but sometimes out-oftouch adults, “Love, Simon” is clearly a cinematic descendant of John Hughes High. Nick Robinson gives a winning performance as the smart and charismatic and conflicted 17-year-old lead character in this wonderful, uplifting, endearing, thoroughly entertaining story. Rating: ★★★1/2 DEATH WISH (Action drama, R, 107 m., 2018). Bruce Willis takes over the Charles Bronson role as a civilian who takes up vigilantism after an attack on his wife and daughter. No doubt some will be startled and perhaps offended by the violence, not to mention the numerous instances in which

“TOMB RAIDER” first-degree murder is played for applause and even laughter. Again and again, “Death Wish” feels anything but real. Rating: ★★ A WRINKLE IN TIME (Fantasy action, PG, 115

m., 2018). Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon star in this adaptation of the young adult classic by Madeleine L’Engle. We should be moved and exhilarated by a story involving leaps of faith and the powerful magic of love, but this journey is felled by a torrent of New Age babble, underwhelming special effects and a final act that falls flat. Rating: ★★ ANNIHILATION (Sci-fi thriller, R, 115 m., 2018). In this bold and innovative sci-fi horror thriller from the director of “Ex Machina,” Natalie Portman plays a biologist venturing into a mysterious environmental disaster zone to find her missing husband. Her work here rivals her Oscar-winning turn in “Black Swan.” Rating: ★★★★ GAME NIGHT (Comedy, R, 100 m., 2018). When the Game Night Max (Jason Bateman) usually hosts with his wife (Rachel McAdams) is commandeered by his cocky brother (Kyle Chandler), the merriment quickly spins out of control. The movie runs a little long, but there are more than enough laughs and clever surprises in this broad and sometimes violent farce to warrant a recom-

mendation. Rating: ★★★ THE 15:17 TO PARIS (Action drama, PG-13, 94 m., 2018). In re-creating the 2015 Paris-bound train journey in which passengers subdued a heavily armed gunman, director Clint Eastwood cast the real-life heroes as themselves, and the amateurs come across as such. Though there are a few pulse-quickening moments, the movie is slowpaced and feels padded. Rating: ★★ BLACK PANTHER (Superhero action, PG-13, 140 m., 2018). Even if you’re not normally into the superhero genre, if you appreciate finely honed storytelling, winning performances and tons of whiz-bang action sequences and good humor, then you should see “Black Panther.” It’s one of the best times I’ve had at the movies this decade. Rating: ★★ GRADE: ★★★★ Excellent, ★★★ Good, ★★ Fair, ★ Poor. Richard Roeper reviews movies for The Chicago Sun-Times. Distributed by Universal Press Syndicate.

EunJin Newkirk is the business face of Newkirk Honey. She and her husband, Jason, have run the business from their home since 2011. They care for honey bee colonies in their backyard, which also is home to chickens, goats and dogs. They sell their honey at several local vendor fairs and recently opened a stand in the Marketplace at Steamtown. EunJin and Jason live in Scranton with their daughter, Areum. Meet EunJin Newkirk... How long have you been beekeeping, and how did you get started? My husband started beekeeping in high school, helping his neighbor who had 10,000 hives, more than 20 years ago. Most of their work was for commercial pollination rather than producing honey. That was how he initially learned how to work with bees.

EunJin Newkirk Why did he decide to continue with it? We moved from Iowa in 2011 when my husband took a job in Waymart. I was sure that I could pursue a career in design, but it wasn’t happening. After a while, Jason began to urge me to start a beekeeping business. It became my full-time job.

What is your favorite part about your job? My favorite part is interacting with customers. As a maker, hearing how people like our food is a wonderful feeling, and the encouragement keeps us going every day. Also designing my own label is a part of the job that I really enjoy.

Can you talk about the setup of your hives? You have this all based at home, and everything happens outside your house? We set up our hives over different locations, but most are in Lackawanna County. A lot of them are located on the West Mountain in Scranton, which is also where we live. Last year and this (year), we maintained 200 hives over seven locations, and we plan to keep those numbers for a while. As bees don’t need attention every single day, we stop by one-by-one to see if any of them need more boxes Please see Up Close, Page 22

ARIES (March 21-April 19): My Aries acquaintance Tatiana decided to eliminate sugar from her diet. She drew up a plan to avoid it completely for 30 days, hoping to permanently break its hold over her. I was surprised to learn that she began the project by making a Dessert Altar in her bedroom, where she placed a chocolate cake and five kinds of candy. She testified that it compelled her willpower to work even harder and become even stronger than if she had excluded all sweet treats from her sight. Do you think this strenuous trick might work for you as you battle your own personal equivalent of a sugar addiction? If not, devise an equally potent strategy. You’re on the verge of forever escaping a temptation that’s no good for you. Or you’re close to vanquishing an influence that has undermined you. Or both. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have caressed and finessed The Problem. You have tickled and teased and tinkered with it. Now I suggest you let it alone for a while. Give it breathing room. Allow it to evolve under the influence of the tweaks you have instigated. Although you may need to return and do further work in a few weeks, my guess is that The Problem’s knots are now destined to metamorphose into seeds. The awkwardness you massaged with your love and care will eventually yield a useful magic. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Whether you love what you love or live in divided ceaseless revolt against it, what you love is your fate.” Gemini poet Frank Bidart wrote that in his poem “Guilty of Dust,” and now I offer it to you. Why? Because it’s an excellent time to be honest with yourself as you identify whom and what you love. It’s also a favorable phase to assess whether you are in any sense at odds with whom and what you love; and if you find you are, to figure out how to be in more harmonic alignment with whom and what you love. Finally, now is a key moment to

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Congratulations on the work you’ve done to cleanse the psychic toxins from your soul. I love how brave you’ve been as you’ve jettisoned outworn shticks, inadequate theories and irrelevant worries. It makes my heart sing to have seen you summon the self-respect necessary to stick up for your dreams in the face of so many confusing signals. I do feel a tinge of sadness that your heroism hasn’t been better appreciated by those around you. Is there anything you can do to compensate? Like maybe intensify the appreciation you give yourself? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I hope you’re reaching the final stages of your year-long project to make yourself as solid and steady as possible. I trust you have been building a stable foundation that will serve you well for at least the next five years. I pray you have been creating a rich sense of community and establishing vital new traditions and surrounding yourself with environments that bring out the best in you. If there’s any more work to be done in these sacred tasks, intensify your efforts in the coming weeks. If you’re behind schedule, please make up for lost time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “Necessity is the mother of invention,” says an old proverb. In other words, when your need for some correction or improvement becomes overwhelming, you may be driven to get creative. Engineer Allen Dale put a different spin on the issue. He said that “if necessity is the mother of invention, then laziness is the father.” Sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein agreed, asserting that “progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.” I’m not sure if necessity or laziness will be your motivation, but I

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Would you have turned out wiser and wealthier if you had dropped out of school in third grade? Would it have been better to apprentice yourself to a family of wolves or coyotes rather than trusting your educational fate to institutions whose job it was to acclimate you to society’s madness? I’m happy to let you know that you’re entering a phase when you’ll find it easier than usual to unlearn any old conditioning that might be suppressing your ability to fulfill your rich potentials. I urge you to seek out opportunities to unleash your skills and enhance your intelligence. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): The temptation to overdramatize is strong. Going through with a splashy but messy conclusion may have a perverse appeal. But why not wrap things up with an elegant whisper instead of a garish bang? Rather than impressing everyone with how amazingly complicated your crazy life is, why not quietly lay the foundations for a low-key resolution that will set the stage for a productive sequel? Taking the latter route will be much easier on your karma, and in my opinion will make for just as interesting a story. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Each of us harbors rough, vulnerable, controversial or unhoned facets of our identity. And every one of us periodically reaches turning points when it becomes problematic to keep those qualities buried or immature. We need to make them more visible and develop their potential. I suspect you have arrived at such a turning point. So on behalf of the cosmos, I hereby invite you to enjoy a period of ripening and self-revelation. And I do mean “enjoy.” Find a way to have fun.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): For the next two-plus weeks, an unusual rule will be in effect: The more you lose, the more you gain. That means you will have an aptitude for eliminating hassles, banishing stress and shedding defense mechanisms. You’ll be able to purge emotional congestion that has been preventing clarity. You’ll have good intuitions about how to separate yourself from influences that have made you weak or angry. I’m excited for you! A load of old, moldy karma could dissolve and disperse in what seems like a twinkling. If all goes well, you’ll be traveling much lighter by July 1.



suspect that the coming weeks could be a golden age of invention for you. What practical innovations might you launch? What useful improvements can you finagle? (P.S. Philosopher Alfred North Whitehead vividly register the fact that the story of your life in the attributed the primary drive for innovative ideas and coming years will pivot around your relationship with gizmos to “pleasurable intellectual curiosity.”) whom and what you love.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I suggest you avoid starting a flirtatious correspondence with a convict who’ll be in jail for another 28 years. OK? And don’t snack on fugu, the Japanese delicacy that can poison you if the cook isn’t careful about preparing it. Please? And don’t participate in a séance where the medium summons the spirits of psychotic ancestors or diabolical celebrities with whom you imagine it might be interesting to converse. Got that? I understand you might be in the mood for high adventure and out-of-the-ordinary escapades. And that will be fine and healthy as long as you also exert a modicum of caution and discernment. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I suggest that you pat yourself on the back with both hands as you sing your own praises and admire your own willful beauty in three mirrors simultaneously. You have won stirring victories over not just your own personal version of the devil, but also over your own inertia and sadness. From what I can determine, you have corralled what remains of the forces of darkness into a comfy holding cell, sealing off those forces from your future. They won’t bother you for a very long time, maybe never again. Right now you would benefit from a sabbatical — a vacation from all this highpowered character-building. May I suggest you pay a restorative visit to the Land of Sweet Nonsense?

or other maintenance throughout the year and harvest the summer honey.

Can you share a memorable beekeeping story? Not too long after my daughter was born, we were going to drop the nuc boxes (mini hives that we rent from bee sellers) back to central Pennsylvania. We were excited about how good the year was going to be with new bees that we purchased. It was the first time we made a purchase with the money that we made by selling honey from a year before. I was about to get in the truck and got stung by a bee. All of a sudden, I started having a hard time breathing. My husband took me to urgent care, and I ended up in the emergency room. It was a big sign that I am very allergic to bee stings, but we had no idea. That night, we really had to think seriously if we can keep this business with my personal ... condition. My answer was yes, because I was just falling in love with bees.

What is your favorite honey product to make and use or eat? It’s absolutely the Raw Honey Fruit Tea. But obviously we use the Wildflower Honey the most.

Why is Raw Honey Fruit Tea your favorite? It’s created with my family tradition. I still remember that when the seasonal fruits started coming out to the market, my mom and grandmother always bought a bulk of them. Or oftentimes we just went to the orchards and preserved (the fruits) with bags of sugar and kept them in a jar, then made tea throughout the year. It was so good, and they told me how each of the different ingredients work for minor physical issues. As I am a beekeeper, I got creative with using my honey to make a better flavor in the most natural way. And it came out from there. But the thing that you have to know is, in Asia, “tea” means basically anything you drink. So tea often doesn’t contain an herb or any other dried leaves or flowers. Sometimes people ask if there is any tea in it, but it’s just a honey and dried fruit and natural extract. How long have you lived in the United States? And what brought you here? I’ve been in this country for 12 years now. I was born and raised in South Korea and decided to come to this country in 2006. I came to New York City to study English but always had a dream of living in this country permanently. There are many reasons why I wanted to be in this country,

and I am making the dreams come true one by one. All I can say is whatever the reason was, I am in a dream that I don’t want to wake up from. Can you talk about your family and what it means to you to be part of a family-owned business? We harvested our first honey at the same time our daughter was born. Now she is almost 6 years old. When we started a business as a family, we wanted to be hard-working Americans who provided high-quality products and had integrity so our children can learn that the products that are sold are reliable and something they can be proud of. What are your hobbies and/or interests outside of beekeeping and the business? I had a minor in Asian fiber art, so I do embroidery and some crafting. But with my career and experience in the food industry, I am also interested in food product branding as well as visual marketing in farm brands. What advice would you give someone who wants to try beekeeping? Do it for fun. It’s a pretty expensive hobby if you really want to do it right. You can get easily

frustrated as they are very difficult creatures to deal with. Have you had a moment or time in your life that helped shape you into who you are today? I am and have always been active. However during my pregnancy, I had a hard time dealing with muscle pains all over my body for the first time. So I started working out on a not-so-serious level only for a couple of hours twice a week. Now I feel even better than before the pregnancy. What is a fun fact that most people don’t know about you? I always come up with crazy and quick ideas that make people surprised or panic. For example, I decided to come to the U.S. and all it took was a week of thought and the following week I was in New York City.

and thus disgusting. For example, as one bisexual dude, 24, put it: “If you have a rug on your torso or back, then try not to display it in public.” In the armpit hair arena, when psychologist Michael S. Boroughs surveyed 18- to 44-year-old American men, he found that 40 percent did some manscaping. Of these men, 62 percent just “reduced” the hair, and 38 percent removed it. (He didn’t separate out sexual preference, but I would guess a good chunk of those balding their pits were gay men.) Sure, some women might be into the Mr. Gorilla Pits thing. But trimmed hair grows back. Disgust is hard to reverse. So grab an electric beard clipper. Prune the hair down to an inch or half-inch or so (making it look short and neat but not like you went to some armpit coiffure place). As a guideline, there’s this: If you’re taking a woman to a forested area, it should require a trip by car or at least on foot, not just lifting one of your arms.

Psycho sUdokU “Kaidoku”


Each of the 26 letters of the alphabet is represented in this grid by a number between 1 and 26. Using letter frequency, word-pattern recognition, and the numbers as your guides, fill in the grid with wellknown English words (HINT: since a Q is always followed by a U, try hunting down the Q first). Only lowercase, unhyphenated words are allowed in kaidoku, so you won’t see anything like STOCKHOLM or LONG-LOST in here (but you might see AFGHAN, since it has an uncapitalized meaning, too). Now stop wasting my precious time and SOLVE!
