Top 20 Restaurant of the Week:



‌Jack Russell Fish Company is about more than fish. Its Saturday night summer concert series has drawn top talent and hoards of music-lovers. A full bar and expanding list of fine wines are also catalysts behind the big crowds. And once customers arrive, they can depend on high-quality, personalized service aimed at ensuring a positive experience for one and all. “We are known for the quality of our seafood,” said owner John Moore. “If we aren’t happy with the quality of it when it comes in, then we send it back.” One thing that is included with the Old Tavern fish sandwich — a cod on white bread with pickles and onion — is quality. “I’ve sold more than 800,000 of them over the years,” Moore said. “It’s the cleanest, whitest, freshest fish we can get.” Diners can also chow down on specialty buckets of large snow crab legs and shrimp or a unique red beans and rice dinner.

Film ties together baskeball team, town ‌CARBONDALE — A film featuring a basketball team’s brutal losing streak is the focus of “Medora” set to air at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, April 26, in the Carbondale Public Library at 405 W. Main St. The story centers around Medora, Ind., a once-booming rural community with a thriving middle class. The community has seen its factories and farms close as the population dwindles. An in-depth, deeply personal look at small town life, “Medora” follows the down-butnot-out Hornets varsity basketball team over the course of the 2011 season, capturing their stories both on and off the court. Riding a long losing streak when the film begins, the team’s struggle to compete bears eerie resemblance to the

town’s fight for survival. Additional details about the film are available at http://itvs/films/medora. The film is part of Community Cinema offered by SIU’s College of Mass Communications and Media Arts, WSIU Public Broadcasting and the Carbondale Library. A discussion after the film will be led by Bobbi Knapp, associate professor in kinesiology and SIU sports sociologist, and Marialice Jenkins, Carbondale Community High School girls basketball coach. The film is free and refreshments will be provided The 2013-14 Community Cinema season wraps up next month with a screening of “The New Black” on May 31.

John A. Logan College Theater Department presents musical, ‘Tarzan’ ‌CARTERVILLE — “Tarzan” will be presented at 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Friday, May 2; 7 p.m. Saturday, May 3; and 2 p.m. Sunday, May 4, in John A. Logan’s O’Neil Auditorium. The musical is based on Edgar Rice Burrough’s “Tarzan of the Apes” and the smash-hit 1999 Disney animated film. The play tells the story of an infant boy orphaned on the shores of West Africa. The boy is raised by a tribe of gorillas and as he grows up he strives for acceptance by his ape father while grappling with his uniqueness. When a human expedition enters their territory, Tarzan — now a man — encounters strangers like himself for the first time. The musical is based on a book by David Henry Hwang with music and lyrics by Phil Collins.


“Tarzan” is directed by Nathan D. Arnett. Admission is $12 or $7 with a low cost matinee of $2 at 10 a.m. Friday, May 2, with JALC students, employees and retirees, free.

The fingers will be flying at annual steel guitar show


ountless individuals have watched Roy Clark, Jerry Reed and Willie Nelson on television through the years and marveled at how effortlessly their fingers glided across the frets of a guitar and made beautiful music. Inspired by what they saw, the wannabe picker quickly ran out to the local music store and bought a high-priced Martin. Most of the time, the instrument was tossed to the back of the closet after a few frustrating attempts left the aspiring musician with nothing more than bleeding fingers. Learning to play a guitar is hard work. If

playing an instrument with only six strings is so difficult, imagine playing the pedal steel guitar, the instrument responsible for supplying traditional country music with its signature sound. It has 10 to 14 strings, plus up to eight foot pedals and more knee pedals to create a sound that is complex and versatile. Many of the greatest steel guitar players in country music will display their talent at the 14th annual Southern Illinois Steel Guitar Show, which kicks off at 10:30 a.m. today and runs through Saturday at the Holiday Inn and Conference Center in Mount Vernon. Weekend

entertainment starts at 10 a.m. Admission is $12 today and $22 for Friday and MUSIC SCENE Saturday. A threeVince Hoffard day pass is available for $45. For additional show information, contact Cord Fitch at 618-927-3158, Dave Flanagan at 618-267-0696 or call 800-252-5464. Living legends Russ Hicks, Mike Sigler, Mike Sweeney, Tyler Hall, Joe Wright, Bob Case and Terry Bethel are scheduled to appear, along with popular local players Vern Mandrell, Larry Baker, Fred Rushing, Leon Mercer, Gary Loyd, Larry Dolan and many others. Dennis Stoughmatt

pays tribute to Wade Ray at 4:25 p.m. Friday and to the Cherokee Cowboys at 4:15 p.m. Saturday. A full schedule of all three days is available at www. Master of ceremonies will be long-time Franklin County singer and band leader Ron Head. A special presentation this year by the event’s entertainment committee is an appearance by veteran country hit maker Tony Booth, who toured many years in the road band of Gene Watson and is the voice behind country classic “The Key’s In The Mailbox.” A Florida native, Booth ventured to California in the 1960s and soaked his musical roots in the fertile Bakersfield sound revolution created by Merle Haggard and Buck

Owens, and later revived by Dwight Yoakam. He eventually was the leader of the house band at the famous Palomino Club in Los Angeles. Booth was named Most Promising Male Vocalist at the 1971 Academy of Country Music Awards and he proved the organization right by reeling off three consecutive Top 20 singles in 1972. He will perform the closing show at approximately 9:45 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday. Other special vocal guests at the show will be 71-year old Leona Williams and her son, Ron. Leona Williams was married to Merle Haggard from 1978 to 1983 and may be best known for their duet, “The Bull And The Beaver.” She also penned “You Take Me For Granted” and “Someday

When Things Are Good” and sang harmony vocals on Merle’s hits “Big City” and ”The Way I Am.” Williams’ songwriting credentials are awe inspiring. Her songs have been recorded by George Jones, Moe Bandy, Tammy Wynette, Lorretta Lynn and Randy Travis — just to name a few. Hicks has recorded hundreds of studio sessions with the tops artists in Music City. As a member of Barefoot Jerry, he was one of the first musicians to play steel guitar in a rock band. He toured with Charlie McCoy for many years, was a staff musician on Hee Haw and makes frequent appearances on the Grand Ole Opry.

‌Former SIU student and current actor/ producer Ted Trentman of Los Angeles will see his full-length feature film debut in Southern Illinois when it opens Friday at Carbondale’s AMC University Place 8. “Belleville” was shot in October in Belleville and surrounding communities. It debuted in downtown Belleville’s historic Lincoln Theatre on April 22. “This is a dream of mine come true,” said Trentman, who goes by the name Ted Trent professionally. “To come back to my hometown of Belleville and involve the community in this fictional story. Thanks to the participation of hundreds of people, this dream is now a reality.” “Belleville” is about a man Neila (alien spelled backwards) from another world allegedly who lands on a small farm in Belleville belonging to a reclusive and grieving farmer. “It’s a good family film. A farmer loses his wife. A visitor shows up and helps the family get out of their funk. Is the visitor an alien? Maybe or maybe not. Think Forrest Gump meets Starman,” Trentman said about his movie.
