“We took a cruise four years ago, and the ship broke down, so we rented a car in Virginia. But I would do it again.” Diana Anthony, 45, Stanhope, N.J.

To A Grand Opening Special

“I was on that same cruise, and I’d take one again, just not on the same line, even though they gave us a 25 percent discount for life.” Ashley Truglio, 18, Stanhope N. J.

“I was on a Disney cruise when I was 9, and I loved it, but after the things that have happened lately, I’d be hesitant. I don’t want to be stranded in the middle of the ocean.”

How can you keep from singing? By MARY THERESE BIEBEL


f you’re used to hearing Johnny Cash’s solo voice singing his hits, director Paul Winarski said, “you’re in for a treat” if you stop by the Theatre at the Grove in Nuangola. “We have solos turned into duets or trios or ensemble numbers. Some have been reorchestrated for a group of six,” he said, describing the musical numbers that will be part of the show “Ring of Fire,” which opens tonight. The six singers in the cast are Dawn Winarski, Bryn Harvey, Jesse McNatt, Mike Marone, David Baker and Bill Lipski, and while none of them specifically portrays Cash, they all have a part in representing him or someone close to him. At a point in the narration that represents Cash’s early years growing up in an Arkansas sharecropper family, Winarski said, one person takes on young Johnny’s personality while the others suggest his father, his mother and a brother. At another point, the director said, “We have three Johnnys and three Junes on stage,” portraying The Man in Black’s relationship with his wife, June Carter Cash. “It’s very low on dialogue, very song heavy,” Winarski said, citing numbers that range from “Five Feet High and Rising,” which tells of flood waters washing away the crops yet leaving a hidden blessing and “Jackson,” which talks about a “hotter-thana-pepper-sprout” couple who have considered separating “ever since the fire went out.” Among the unusual twists on Cash’s music, Winarski said, “there’s a beautiful moment in Act II when Dawn, Bryn and Jesse sing ‘Sunday Morning Coming Down,’ which was a troubadour song for Johnny, written by his friend Kris Kristofferson. Here it’s been turned in to wistful, morning-after song for these ladies.” A big fan of Cash’s music himself, Winarski said the show will appeal to many. “Johnny Cash is an icon and a legend,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re a country fan or not. His music transcends genre, like Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra or the Beatles.” ••• For another musical option,

Mike Marone, Jesse McNatt, Dave Baker, Bill Lipski and Dawn Winarski will pay tribute to the music of Johnny Cash in ‘Ring of Fire’ at the Grove Theatre in Nuangola.

I have pop. I have Broadway. I have movies. We want to make you cry and make you laugh.” The four performers in the show, Jimmy Williams, Amanda Reese, John Kennedy and Dana Feigenblatt, portray people in many stages of life and love. “They start out as babies, with baby bonnets,” Zehner said. “The pace is fast and furious.” The numbers include songs as diverse as “I love You a Bushel and a Peck,” “My Boyfriend’s

Teatime tales may deliver sinking feeling IF YOU GO


Teenage mother Thelma Thomas screams “My baby, my baby!” but people don’t understand her heart-rending cries because she is speaking Lebanese. They just want her to to step into a lifeboat — without her child. Thomas doesn’t know that a woman named Edwina Troutt has carried her baby son onto another lifeboat — and that her brotherin-law, Charles, who handed the baby over to this stranger, will go down with the ship and most of the other men on board. Another doomed passenger, Antoni Yazbeck, helps his new bride, his sister-in-law and two young nephews into a lifeboat. According to the family story, he is leaning over to kiss his wife goodbye when an officer fires a shot and warns him the boat is for women and children only. Ironically, that very lifeboat will carry a much wealthier man to safety. The president of the White Star Line made sure to save himself. “You just feel chills when you hear some of these stories,” said broadcast journalist Dave DeCosmo, who will discuss these local ties to the Titanic disaster at the Hoyt Library in Kingston during

Thomas and her baby. “They do a wonderful job. I’m so proud of them,” advisor Doris Brady said, adding the girls, after taking second place in regional History Day competition at Penn State/ Wilkes-Barre, will compete on the state level in May. Their history presentation has prompted the three stu-

dents to compile statistics, Brady said, explaining they now understand the survival rate for women and children who were traveling first and second class was quite high, while more than half of the women and two-thirds of the children traveling third-class perished, along with more than 80 percent of the men from all three classes of travelers. Among the men who died were Antoni Yazbeck, whose Borek relatives (the name was changed from Moubarek) settled in the Wyoming Valley, and Charles Thomas, who had relatives in Wilkes-Barre. Before Thelma Thomas died in her late 70s, DeCosmo said, he was pleased to help her make a connection with the woman who had carried her baby to safety. “I had done an interview (with Thomas), found out that she was being escorted on the Titanic by her brother-in-law, he was carrying her baby, she was put into a

lifeboat without her baby, and he handed the baby to a woman in another lifeboat,” DeCosmo reflected. “Then I watched ‘The Today Show,’ and an English woman named Edwina Troutt MacKenzie was telling the same story, only she had been given a baby. I contacted ‘The Today Show,’ and they got Mrs. MacKenzie on the phone with Mrs. Thomas.” Thelma Thomas’ surviving daughter, Mae, still has some of letters and cards MacKenzie exchanged with her mother, DeCosmo said. The story of the Titanic continues to fascinate people, including Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, who has commissioned the building of a replica, Titanic II. “If all goes well, it’s supposed to set sail in 2016,” DeCosmo said. “In many ways it will be a duplicate, but realistically enough, it will have enough lifeboats, the modern kind.” Adding to the experience at the Titanic Tea, librarian Carol Dalmas said, participants will find out via a raffle-type drawing whether they’ll find room “in a lifeboat” or not.

The art of transformation and more By MARY THERESE BIEBEL

The angel doesn’t have a head, or legs either, and perhaps that’s for the best. “He’s a creature of the air. You see him as more of a force,” Darlene Miller-Lanning, Ph.D., said, explaining how, without the distraction of appendages, you can concentrate on the struggle depicted in the University of Scranton’s eye-catching sculpture “Jacob and the Angel.” To learn more about the campus’ collection of eye-catching outdoor sculptures, you can participate in one of two walking tours, set for Wednesday and for April 28, or visit the university’s Hope Horn Gallery, where an exhibit offers insight into the creation and installation of the pieces. “We have a photo of (Swoyersville artist) Gerhard Baut on a crane, checking St. Ignatius’ face,” Miller-Lanning said, describing a finishing touch for a sculpture called “Metanoia.” That Greek word means “transformation,” Miller-Lanning said, and “Metanoia” speaks to a change of heart experienced by the man who would become St.


Ignatius and found the Jesuit order of priests that established the university. “It’s kind of a cubist representation of St. Ignatius, who was a Spanish soldier. He was injured, and while he was recuperating he started to rethink his life. It shows him turning his sword around so it becomes a cross-like form and offering his service to God.” Jacob’s struggle with the angel deals with changes, too, said Miller-Lanning, who is director of the Hope Horn Gallery. “In the biblical story of Jacob and the angel, he’s at a transitional point of his life, coming to terms with who he needs to be.” When you’re a university student, Miller-Lanning said, “you

‘we’re all in this together.’ ” Other people see the sculpture as representing Jesus with a disciple, she said, and some see it as “an image of the resurrection, with Jesus appearing to Mary Magdalene.” As to the gender of the person with Jesus, the director said, “I think Southey kind of left it open. It’s androgynous.” A fourth sculpture, “Doorway to the Soul” by Lisa Fedon of Pen Argyl, is a bas-relief attached to the wall of a building. “It’s a series of panels representing the levels you might go through in a procedure of personal growth,” MillerLanning said.

f you close your eyes and listen to Ann Hampton Callaway sing “Evergreen” or “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” you might swear you’re hearing Barbra Streisand. “She definitely has a lot of ‘Barbra-isms,’ ” said maestro Larry Loh, who is happy to welcome Callaway to sing along with the Northeastern Pennsylvania Philharmonic Pops tonight in Wilkes-Barre and tomorrow night in Scranton. Despite the similarities, Loh continued, the guest artist “has her own style. We’re going to hear her distinct voice as a tribute to Barbra Streisand.” In addition to finding success as a singer, Callaway is a composer who has written songs for the famous singing actress.

worThy desTinaTion By KRISTIN TILLOTSON | Star Tribune (Minneapolis)

The Place Beyond the Pines” tells three overlapping stories that center on the legacies — voluntary or not — fathers leave their sons, and the splitsecond decisions that can shape them. The title is the English translation of the Mohawk word for the film’s setting, Schenectady. It’s a fitting romanticizing of reality for the film’s characters, who all hope for something better than what they have. As bottle-blond, tat-splattered motorcycle-stunt driver Luke, Ryan Gosling has never been better. When he runs into former one-night stand Romina (his real-life love, Eva Mendes) and finds out he’s a baby daddy, the ramblin’ man goes gooey at the prospect of having an insta-family. Never mind Romina’s live-in boyfriend. Determined to support his toddler son, Luke teams

with a mechanic (the alwayssuperb Ben Mendelsohn, last seen as the junkie in “Killing Them Softly”) to rob banks, and his single-take getaway chase scene — for which Gosling reportedly trained six hours a day for two months — is a nail-biter.

is mind-bending but little else By JAKE COYLE AP Entertainment Writer


lot-twisting puzzlers are a bubble market in the movies these days, with an arms race of “Inception”-like reality reversals that flip like a coin until dizzy audiences lose all interest in how it lands. That’s certainly the case with Danny Boyle’s “Trance,”

a mind-bending neo-noir with continually shifting layers but little beyond its flashy plot machinations. The movies used to be content to be the stuff of dreams. Now they aim for hypnosis, limbo and headache-inducing dreams within dreams. Advil might soon replace popcorn. “Trance” starts promisingly enough. James McAvoy

Still Showing on a journey to find a new home after their cave is destroyed. In 3-D. PG. 92 mins.  EVIL DEAD — This remake of Sam Raimi’s “The Evil Dead” — they dropped the “The” in the title — presents, for your edification and enjoyment, some of the most graphic horror violence ever seen on screen. But Fede Alvarez’s homage to the original “Cabin in the Woods” tale lacks the offhanded goofiness and brittle jokes of young people facing death at the hands of something supernatural. R for strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language. 92 mins.  1/2 G.I. JOE: RETALIATION — A better-than-average, gravity-

defying ninja duel leads to an epic chase through the Himalayas in this big set-piece sequence. PG-13 for intense combat violence and martial-arts action, brief sensuality and language. 110 mins.  THE HOST — The film adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s book comes with a workable script about an alien invasion. The bodies of humans have been taken over by space travelers who look like neon caterpillars. When an alien known as The Wanderer ends up in the body of the spunky Melanie Stryder (Saoirse Ronan), another problem arises.

New ‘Five-0’ has made some changes Q. Recently I was watching the original “Hawaii Five-O” with Jack Lord and James MacArthur. I noticed that one of the characters had been replaced — that Kono, played by Zulu, was no longer there but someone was by the name of Ben, played by Al Harrington. Why was there a change in the cast of the program? A. From 1968 to 1972, Gilbert “Zulu” Kauhi, an entertainer in Hawaii, played detective Kono Kalakaua. The nickname Zulu reportedly came from rumpled hair that to his friends looked African. According to a story in the Honolulu Advertiser after his death of complications from diabetes in 2004, Zulu “was fired after an altercation with the show’s publicist in which he acknowledged making loud racist comments.” (He was apparently unhappy with the way his character was being presented.) A story in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin after his death said the actor also annoyed star Jack Lord by falling asleep between takes. “He wasn’t that impressed with Jack,” one journalist said. “Zulu thought he was just as important as anyone else on the show.” Harrington, who had been playing guest-starring roles on the show, was cast as a new detective, Ben Kokua, and remained with the series until 1975; the original version of the show ended in 1980. Harrington, by the way, has also been on the newer version of “Five-O,” which began in 2010, as Mamo Kahike, a family friend of the McGarretts. Do you have a question or comment for the mailbag?

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be sur-

prised at the ones who contact you. How do these people even know about you? They don’t. Only those privileged to be close to you really know you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Even though you would like to say you are a believer, the more accurate reality is that you have an open mind. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are on the road to greatness. Many people you have touched have continued on to greatness. You saw it in them all along. You see it in



ON THE WEB For more Sudoku go to you, too. Don’t lose faith.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). People like

to say that it’s the things you don’t do that you’ll regret later. But those people haven’t experienced unfortunate consequences of truly foolish action. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You think the world of someone. But should you? Today you’ll gain more perspective and perhaps discover that it’s best to put stock in the one you know better: you! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). No prize makes you happier than knowing you have earned it. The integrity and loyalty of your ways will be proved once more in today’s unfolding of events. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Avoid the tendency to complicate things. The answers

will be simple now, but they may not be the answers you want to hear. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You can’t help how you feel, but a funny thing happens once you accept and express those feelings. They change. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There are times to pretend like you understand what’s going on, but today you’re better off asking questions. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have the complete package, including the judgment that tells you when and how to share it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). While striving for greatness in a pursuit, it is only natural and necessary to know what isn’t helping and to be critical of that. Mastery

moves beyond that criticism and begins accepting the so-called “defects.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You sometimes want to hear that the other person is sorry. Note that you don’t need this; you just want it because it allows you to get past what you perceive as a slight. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 12). You’ll get serious with relationships both personal and professional. The next seven weeks are about buckling into commitment, and it’s a secure feeling once all is resolved. June brings a trade. The investment you make in your physical environment will pay off in three years. August brings laughter and friendly good times. Taurus and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 49, 2, 22 and 17.

Deceased military veteran’s two families quibble over flag Dear Abby: My ex-husband, the father of our two children, was retired from the Air Force. He passed away 18 years ago. He had a full military funeral, with draped flag and all. His wife at the time was presented with the flag, which was proper. They had no children. When she passes on, would it be proper for her family to give the flag to his biologi-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE cal children? After all, they were with him — as was I — throughout his entire 22-year military career. When my daughter mentioned it to his wife, she got angry. — C. in Texas Dear C.: Your former husband’s wife was entitled to whatever property was left after his

demise. The flag is hers to bestow — or not. I don’t know how your daughter’s request was phrased, but the woman may have been offended by the way the question was asked. I can’t think of any other reason she would become angry. Dear Abby: I am writing regarding a letter you printed Jan. 26 from “Wants to Be Polite.” I appreciate the person’s sentiments because I, too, want to use good manners and a “You’re welcome” or “Have a


nice day” is a pleasing reply to hear. What I do NOT like is a “No problem” reply to a “Thank you.” It does not seem like a sincere response to me. In fact, it sounds like I was expected to be a problem and just happened not to be one. Any thoughts on this? — Arkansas Lady Dear Arkansas Lady: You may not like hearing it, but you had better get used to it. While “You’re welcome” may



be more gracious, saying “No problem” reflects a generational shift in the vernacular. And while it may seem jarring, it is intended to be a polite response, so accept it graciously.

‘Sandlot’ captures adolescence


Continued from Page 11

is Simon, a London auctioneer who describes the emergency protocol of the high-end auction house “in the event of an event.” As he does so, such an event is under way: A well-planned gang led by Frank (the excellent Vincent Cassel) brazenly attempts to steal Francisco Goya’s “Witches in the Air.” Simon attempts to foil the heist, but we soon realize he’s in on the plot, too. But something has gone awry. A blow to the head has sapped Simon of his memory, leading the crew to enlist a hypnotist (Rosario Dawson) to elicit the location of the missing painting from Simon’s banged-up brain. This is, naturally, when the script by Joe Ahearne and John Hodge begins to play with Simon’s hypnosis. The

anniversary Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, “The Sandlot” (1993, Fox, PG, $20) has aged surprisingly well. The action is set in 1962 and follows fifth-grader Scotty Smalls (Tom Guiry) as he tries to adjust to life in Florida with his mom (Karen Allen) and new stepdad (Denis Leary). No sooner does Scotty arrive in town than he’s recruited by some neighborhood kids (Mike Vitar, Patrick Renna and Chauncey Leopardi) for their ragtag baseball team. Every day, the pals head off to a dilapidated sandlot, where they spend hours

movie drifts in and out of consciousness, guided by Dawson’s silky voice. Is Simon our protagonist or villain? Is Elizabeth Lamb (Dawson) pulling out Simon’s memories or implanting them? Pubic hair, you will be happy to learn, figures prominently in the answers to these questions. Boyle and his cinematographer, Anthony Dod Mantle, saturate the film with reflected images and a sleek, colorful palate. “Trance” is never more than a minute away from a striking image, though the glassy, frenetic compositions only heighten the movie’s lack of depth. It’s Dawson’s fleshy, commanding presence that helps melt the right angles of “Trance.” Her character gradually moves to the forefront of the film, such that you might mutter “James McA who?” by the time she, like a goddess, disrobes. But before a full pic- • 570-825-6111

just playing the game. With his vibrant, episodic screenplay, Evans avoids many of the clichés of sports movies. There’s no big game, no weepiness, no cringe-inducing life lessons learned. During the film’s second half, the action is mostly devoted to the kids’ attempts to retrieve a BabeRuth-signed baseball from the yard of a man (James Earl Jones) with a big, snarling dog. Sure, these comedy sequences are a smidge too broad. But Evans gets so much right about adolescence and the joys of baseball that “The Sandlot” is never less than a charmer.

ture of Elizabeth arrives, the movie’s succession of implausible trap doors has rendered any big reveal about as satisfactory as a punch line to a 20-minute-long knock-knock joke.

GRADE B: The second season of this political and human drama starring Kelsey Grammer as Chicago Mayor Tom Kane steps up the intensity of the first season. Grammer’s first year was good enough to earn him a Golden Globe. The second season comes with an even stronger performance from Grammer, who portrays a politician battling to hold his career together despite having a debilitating brain disease. It helped that new actors added to this pot boiler, including Sanaa Lathan, Jonathan Groff and Tip “T.I.” Harris, playing characters who replenish Kane’s inner circle that was devastated in the first season. ••• ALSO NEW ON DVD: “HYDE PARK ON HUDSON”: Bill Murray portrays President Franklin D. Roosevelt. “VIETNAM: THE TEN THOUSAND DAY WAR”: Richard Basehart narrates this four-DVD set that covers from 1945-1975. “INTO THE COLD”: Documentary follows two men as they retrace and commemorate Robert E.

Back in the early ’90s, WilkesBarre native David Mickey Evans hit a pair of home runs when he sold his screenplays for “Radio Flyer” and “The Sandlot” for more than $1 million apiece. Evans didn’t stay in the zone for long. In 1991, he was replaced as the director of “Radio Flyer” by “Superman” helmer Richard Donner. The film was largely reshot, but it still bombed with audiences and critics alike when it was released in 1992. A year later, though, Evans made his comeback with “The Sandlot” and scored a big hit at the box-office. Now available in a nifty, 20th-

It’s another week of slim pickings with new DVD releases: “HOWDY KIDS: SATURDAY AFTERNOON WESTERN ROUNDUP,” GRADE B-PLUS: If you grew up in the 1950s, then this is a three-DVD set you have to own. It’s a fun trip back to Saturdays when heroes, who rode horses, flew planes and even got around in a Jeep, ruled the television airwaves. There are 25 episodes of live-action programming originally designed to entertain children. Included are episodes of “The Lone Ranger,” “The Range Rider,” “The Rifleman,” “The Adventures Of Rick O’Shay,” “Fury,” “The Roy Rogers Show,” “Annie Oakley,” “The Adventures Of Kit Carson,” “The Adventures Of Champion,” “The Cisco Kid,” “Sergeant Preston Of the Yukon,” “Sky King,” “Red Ryder” and “Buffalo Bill Jr.” Everyone will have their favorites, but two of the standouts are “Sky King,” who battled bad guys using an airplane, and “Sergeant Preston Of the Yukon,” whose companion was King, a dog billed as a husky by was really an Alaskan Malamute. “BOSS: SEASON 2,”

42 Continued from Page 10

Helgeland provides his most clever touches in the ways he makes Robinson’s story resonate today. The California native had bristled at Southern segregation while in the Army. Helgeland plays up the racial threats Robinson received in spring training at Sanford, Fla. (where teen Trayvon Martin recently met his death). He shows us a grand arc among the players, many of whom signed a petition to keep Robinson off the Dodgers. They witness the racism of opponents, fans and others and blush in shame. The writer-director gives his star a lot of quiet moments, but Boseman, the center of it all, makes for a rather stoic and bland Robinson, which was what Rickey was shooting for, but it doesn’t do the movie any favors in the spark department The rest of the cast of “42” is no slam-dunk of A-listers. Hamish Linklater (TV’s “The New Adventures of Old Chris-

caying-marriage tear-jerker “Blue Valentine” also starred Gosling, has built a reputation as idealistic and uncompromising, brilliant at creating mood amid an airtight structure. But where that film jumped back and forth in time, this one is linear — and that’s about the only storytelling convention Cianfrance follows as he plays with narrative arc and alternates between bursts of high-octane action and the gritty, foreboding yet dreamy feel of “21 Grams.” The second story, emerging before the first is quite over, gives us Bradley Cooper as wounded-hero cop Avery, facing corruption among his cohorts (including Ray Liotta). Avery soon reveals some serious ethical elasticity of his own. He builds on his “Silver Linings Playbook” serious-actor cred, with shifty, nervous eyes conveying the self-doubt and fear

tine”) isn’t built like an athlete of this or any other era. John C. McGinley seems totally wrong. Christopher Meloni suggests little of what earned manager Leo Durocher the nickname “Leo the Lip.” And Ford seems nothing like the real Rickey, even if he wins us over with gruff charm. But Alan Tudyk gives a spittle-spewing racist vent to Phillies manager Ben Chapman, and Lucas Black is absolutely perfect as the drawling star Dodgers shortstop Pee Wee Reese, whose role in that season that changed America — 1947 — easily could have been forgotten, but which Helgeland movingly remembers. It’s the setting, the tone and the sentiment that “42” masters — the comically primitive attitudes of some of the white majority, the black fans and children inspired by Robinson’s odyssey, the barriers that today’s youth might be shocked to know ever existed. And it’s that affection for the game and the history that make “42” a number not just worthy of retiring from every major-league roster but worth experiencing as a movie.

What: “The Place Beyond The Pines”  1/2 Starring: Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn, Bradley Cooper, Ray Liotta, Rose Byrne Directed by: Derek Cianfrance Running time: 140 minutes Rated: R for language, violence, teen drug/alcohol use

he can’t express verbally. Avery’s father (Harris Yulin), a judge who can’t completely hide his disappointment in his son’s blue-collar career path, adds another generational element to the theme. Avery and his wife (Rose Byrne) also have a young boy. Jumping ahead, the third and weakest story in the film intertwines the fates of the sons of the cop and the criminal when they reach their teens. Unfortunately, the tail end of the triptych can’t sustain the dramatic tension that came before it without toppling an already precarious believability. Still, with so much to chew on, it doesn’t feel like that matters too much.
