Five Folks Tomorrow is National Hot Dog Day. (And you can get a free one on the lawn of the Osterhout Free Library in Wilkes-Barre from noon until 12:30.) In honor of the day, we asked the question:
“What’s the best way to eat a hot dog?” “I fry some onions and add Coca-Cola to caramelize them. That’s my special thing.” Jay Albers, 38, White Haven Owner, Jay’s Dog House, on Public Square
“This is a buffalo sausage with chipotle (from Jay’s Dog House.) It has a nice kick to it, and the sweet mustard sauce is pretty good, too.

Tiny railcars jump out of history and onto local tracks
One railcar owner decorated his vehicle to resemble the protagonist of a series of children’s books, ‘Thomas the Tank Engine.’
‘Speeders’ zip into Berwick By MARY THERESE BIEBEL firstname.lastname@example.org
he Susquehanna Riverlands in Salem Township will host an antique car show of sorts tomorrow, but don’t expect Studebakers, Thunderbirds or Model T’s.
IF YOU GO What: Motorized railcars display Who: North American Railcar Operators Association When: noon to 2 p.m. Saturday Where: Susquehanna Riverlands, 634 Salem Blvd., Berwick More info: 866-832-4474
community relations manager Joe Scopelliti said. He expects they’ll be painted in a rainbow of colors and, in some cases, decorated in very interesting styles. “One guy made his up to look like Thomas the Tank Engine,” Remensnyder agreed, recalling past events. “He calls it ‘Thomas the Rail Car.’ I don’t know if he’s coming this year, but kids love that.” While some of the speeders can drive in reverse, others have to be
turned around. Turning them to face the opposite direction isn’t as difficult as you might think, even for one person, thanks to the handles on the side and the principles of physics. “It’s like a wheelbarrow,” Remensnyder said. “Mine weighs a little over 1,300 pounds, and it’s not too hard to turn around. If you get a 5- or 6-year-old kid standing on the front bumper to counterweight it, it makes it a lot easier.” Riding along the railroad tracks – something the speeders arrange in advance, with permission – is a fun way to travel and offers an unusual perspective. “You see things you don’t ordinarily see,” he said. “Farmland. Old canals. It’s nice. Except most towns put their sewage treatment plants by the river so you see them, too.”
Members of the North American Railcar Operators Association will bring and display their “speeders,” motorized railcars that were used in bygone days to repair and maintain railroad tracks. “I don’t know how they got their name,” railcar enthusiast George Remensnyder said in a telephone interview. “They generally go anywhere from 20 to 24 miles per hour. You can
get them going a little faster.” Remensnyder, 64, of Beech Haven, bought his speeder years ago from a former railroad employee in Ohio and painted it red and silver, “the color scheme of the Santa Fe Railroad.” “They’re getting scarce to buy,” he said. “You can check the websites.” Remensnyder enjoys the rare occasions when he drives his speeder along the tracks for events. Tomorrow’s convoy of speeders will travel 86 miles round trip from Northumberland to Berwick along the North Shore Railroad. On Sunday, he’ll take part in another run, a 50-mile roundtrip along the Shamokin Valley Railroad between Sunbury and Mount Carmel Junction. Tomorrow, about 30 enthusiasts are likely to bring their speeders to the Susquehanna Riverlands, PPL

This is the farmhouse that will say you’ve arrived at Shadyrill Farm Cafe & Bakery in Dallas. You’ll enjoy your meal inside the nearby barn.

inside some open farmhouse cabinetry just out of view. Onto sandwiches, which fall into four basic categories here: classics, served cold and eight ways; wraps, cold and six ways; hot, nine ways; and paninis, hot and five ways. Add to these six salads, a lunch trio (garden salad,
soup and breadsticks), a kids menu and even a flatbread white pizza with Vermont cheddar, red onion, fresh tomatoes and basil pesto sauce, served with salad, and I challenge you to find anything missing. The creations seem to hit all the bases. They start with Boar’s Head meats (the premier name in the deli world) and play with everything from turkey, ham, pastrami, porketta and chicken (even hot and Parmesan style) to olive tapenade, roasted red peppers, bacon, hummus and that sweet, now-in-season basil. We three adults were fairly torn but decided quickly. See RESTAURANT, Page 6

Karina’s Martini, served at Karina’s Retreat in Hughestown, is the perfect fruitinfused sipper.
From the moment we arrived in front of the white farmhouse with the pretty paned windows that delivered such a gracious welcome, everything just oozed local charm. That the very air was redolent of basil as we were leaving, impressed and cheerful, was just a seal on the deal. A mental note was quickly made of an excellent reason to return to Shadyrill Farm: If you buy basil here, a staffer will pick it fresh from the garden and pack it into a cup for you. How utterly delightful.
Every bit as delightful were the simple but filling lunches turned out inside the woody and spacious, big-barn headquarters. Think soups, salads and sandwiches offered so many ways your head will spin, in a dizzying, dazzling way, of course. A cup of creamy chicken, mushroom and Parmesan soup to start things off was all we needed to know we were in for something delicious. The soup itself was sizzling hot, with each ingredient, most especially the sweet, fat and crunchy corn, fighting for individual attention as the freshest pick right off the farm. Even the serveware was special: a pastel-colored crock inside a different pastel-colored catch bowl you could almost imagine stacked enchantingly
Some martinis are so special, and so tasty, they deserve much more than the typical triangular glass. Such is the case with Karina’s Martini, a featured drink at Karina’s Retreat in Hughestown. Karina Singer, owner of Karina’s Retreat, is the creator of the only drink on her martini menu that’s served in a Champagne glass. “I’m a big fan of Grand Marnier,” she said. “I wanted something that put that and another favorite of mine, Champagne, together.” Singer uses Freixenet Cordon Negro Extra Dry sparkling wine. “A dry Champagne will lessen the sweetness in the martini,” Singer said. “In this case you need that because all of the sweetness comes from the fruits.” She uses sparkling-wine splits, or quarter-size bottles, to ensure the bubbly in each martini has perfect carbonation. “Champagne will lose its carbonation after being open for a day,” Singer said. “It’s better to use the small bottles instead of opening a large one and risking not using it all, then losing the carbonation.” The fruits used are freshsqueezed lime and orange. The drink also contains cranberry juice, vodka and Grand Marnier, an orange liqueur. While the fruit taste certainly comes through, so does the presence of alcohol. It’s not overpowering, but if you like to actually taste the booze you’re drinking and not have it glossed over with sweetness, this is the perfect combination. The volume of a Champagne glass is a bit less than that of a martini glass, but that doesn’t mean you’ll be missing out with Karina’s Martini. Each drink comes with what Singer calls a side car, or mini carafe, so every ounce of liquid from the martini shaker can be enjoyed. ••• KARINA’S MARTINI Served at: Karina’s Retreat, 295 Parsonage St., Hughestown Price: $6.25, $4.25 on Thursday martini nights Recipe: 1 shot vodka 1 shot Grand Marnier Cranberry juice Freixenet Cordon Negro Extra Dry sparkling wine Juice of lime Juice of orange Shake together, pour into Champagne flute. Garnish with orange and lime.

A BBQ beef and cheddar hot sandwich ($9.95) was the first pick: thinly sliced roast beef, cheddar, bacon, onions and barbecue sauce grilled on wonderfully crunchy homemade flatbread. This was a little messy, thanks to the barbecue sauce, but a lot impressive. The flatbread, with obvious grill marks, was a crusty standout. Next up was a Hot Italian (also $9.95): capicola, Genoa salami, pepperoni, Provolone, red onions, sweet peppers, tomato and Italian vinaigrette all on the same flatbread. A guest was mesmerized and took care to point out that she ate half not because it wasn’t worthy but because it was so generous. Plus, she also had her eye on a dessert. (More on that later.) Choice No. 3 came from the panini menu: a Turkey Caesar BLT Panini ($8.95), with turkey breast, Provolone, bacon, tomato, lettuce and cheesy Caesar dressing, again, grilled on the signature flatbread. Our taster lauded the choice of Provolone over American and praised the delectable flavor of the dressing. Two side dishes deserve special shout-outs here, and I tell you because I’m told I must. Each sandwich was accompanied by a side of coleslaw or potato salad, and preferring neither (because I have renounced mayonnaise) I offered mine to my two guests, who, as a result, got a serving and a half apiece. You should know these two are aficionados of both slaw and potato salad, and they found the entries here simply among the best available, if not THE best available, locally. I’d like to tell you why, but even they couldn’t exactly say. Not too heavy, not too loose, I was told. Not overly mayo’d either. Apparently, coleslaws and potato salads can be judged instantaneously, at first bite, and these both raced to the top of the pack. The similarly pleased will be happy to know both are sold to go. You want to impress friends at a picnic? Come here first, I dutifully report. Now, I’d like to tell you we had a child in tow because his presence made my meal even a smidge better. From the kids menu, he ordered a grilled cheese, and it was easily one of the most beautiful grilled cheeses I’d ever seen, on thick, homemade bread, oozing

cheese and sporting actual grill marks. No pan-fried “grilled” cheese here. Imagine my delight when he offered a bite. My only complaint: No grilled cheese on the adult menu. I’d have loved a four-cheese variety teeming with basil. But worth noting is the staff here is more than accommodating of small folks. Our young eater actually asked for his grilled cheese with “a side of turkey” and was kindly obliged. After explaining that no, he didn’t wish for turkey on his grilled cheese, he was given a cup of thinly sliced, fresh deli turkey, which he enjoyed with abandon. Applesauce or potato chips and a cute cup of Sunset ice cream were his included accompaniments. She who enjoyed only a half sandwich also sampled dessert for us: a slice of pineapple chiffon pie, which was the weekly feature. It looked all kinds of lovely, topped generously with fluffy white cream, and she quickly raved. As for me, I had my dessert at home: a reduced-price coffee cake, marked down to $2 on the day-old table, that tasted every bit as moist and fresh as if it had been offered brand-new at $4.50, which is still a nice price. I can only imagine what the first-run tasted like. Hey, another reason to revisit. We arrived not terribly long after noon, and the bakery table was fairly picked over. So the getting might be best early. But we did manage to score some take-home pierogies, available here in at least seven varieties, including buffalo chicken. Yes, buffalo chicken pierogies. Just one more happy surprise brought to us by one of the happiest little places we’ve encountered of late. Oh, what a happy summer day. Times Leader food critics remain anonymous.

he winners of Colorado’s coveted Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition, Greensky Bluegrass, will perform at 8 tonight at the Mauch Chunk Opera House in Jim Thorpe. The five-piece group from Michigan creates original songs that retain the familiarity of old-school bluegrass. The band is made up of Anders Beck on dobro (or resophonic guitar), Michael Bont on banjo, Dave Bruzza on guitar, Mike Devol on upright bass and Paul Hoffman on mandolin. The band’s name, which consists of opposites “green sky” and “blue grass,” is a reflection of the type of music it plays. “Along with the tradition of bluegrass, we all have lots of different musical influences that we bring to the table,” Bruzza said in a press release, “and we somehow wanted to reflect that in our name.” During a performance, the audience can expect to hear Greensky originals as well as selections from the Talking Heads, Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead or Bob Marley, all with a bluegrass twist. ••• When Lil Wayne comes around, it’s almost always with an entourage.

fragments of his malignant soul. How the school has changed from the joyous theme park of old. Dementors float above the courtyard, their tattered shrouds trailing like jellyfish tentacles. Students march in prison-camp formation. Overseeing it all from a high window is Voldemort’s ally, Prof. Snape (Alan Rickman, delivering each line of dia-
log as if savoring a plum). His expression is stoic but ... could that be a flicker of regret? The story has an epic war-movie feel, as Voldemort’s army strikes back against Harry’s student and staff rebellion. Director David Yates keeps the ebb and flow of combat clear; for all its blitzkreig energy, the battle never feels incoherent. What distinguishes this from other summer shrapnel-fests is the way it follows individuals we care about through the conflict. Second fiddles Neville Longbottom (Matthew Lewis) and Prof. McGonagall (Maggie Smith) step forward to play pivotal roles. The power bolts, spells and inSee HALLOWS, Page 13
ith its haunted vistas, clanking battles, inspired effects, heroism, treachery, fragile alliances and moral ambiguity, the blockbuster finale of the Harry Potter saga achieves a supernatural splendor. The series has sputtered here and there over the past decade, losing its focus and tempo, but this climax is a triumph of spectacle and well-earned sentiment.
“Potter” is the anti-“Transformers,” high adventure with heart and soul to spare. Daniel Radcliffe has matured into a solid actor, impressive in tense scenes of deadly combat and quiet moments of subtle, shifting emotion. He puts those skills to good use in Harry’s showdown with Lord Voldemort, the snake-faced tyrant who killed Harry’s parents and aims to crush the world beneath his heel. With Hermione (Emma Watson, her iron-jawed self-confidence draining away) and Ron (Rupert Grint, whose befuddled expression suits his overwhelmed character) Harry returns to Hogwarts to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes, the containers in which Voldemort has hidden

New to DVD This week’s DVD releases are a mixed bag of animation, comedy and horror. ••• “RANGO,” GRADE A: A chameleon (voiced by Johnny Depp) comes to the rescue of a small town when he’s lost in the desert. Director Gore Verbinski’s first venture into animation is a rootin’ tootin’ good time. It combines the cheesiness of spaghetti Westerns with the offbeat attitude of “Blazing Saddles” and delivers it all in a spectacular computer-generated form. You must see “Rango.” Verbinski finds the perfect blend of slapstick humor and interesting characters to entertain both young and old. “INSIDIOUS,” GRADE C-: A family discovers that dark spirits have possessed their son. Patrick Wilson stars. A good way to make a horror film scary is to keep the story so grounded in what’s familiar it creates shivers, such as “The Blair Witch Project” or “Paranormal Activity.” “Insidious” starts out with such an approach, but then writer Leigh Whannell and director James Wan load the film with so many horror film cliches — including a very predictable ending — the effort collapses. “ARTHUR,” GRADE F: A slacker must choose between an arranged marriage or life without money. Russell Brand and Helen Mirren star. There’s not enough liquor on the planet to obliterate the memory of this film. This feeble remake is not just repugnant for its lack of humor, amateurish acting and lead-footed pacing, but it’s also an insult to the memory of Dudley Moore, who starred in the 1981 version. ••• ALSO NEW ON DVD TUESDAY: ••• “ROBOT CHICKEN STAR WARS: EPISODE III:” Seth Green’s satirical look at the sci-fi classic. “AGATHA CHRISTIE’S POIROT: THE MOVIE COLLECTION:” Includes three mysteries that premiered on PBS’s “Masterpiece Mystery!”

innie the Pooh,” Disney’s latest film revival of A.A. Milne’s “willy, nilly, silly old bear,” is longer on charm than on laughs. But it’s a treat for children making their first trek to the multiplex and for parents and grandparents with fond memories of the “Hundred Acre Wood.” This “Pooh” is a musical homage to the 1960s Pooh short films, adding new songs (by “Book of Mormon” composer Robert Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez) and a lovely revival of the “Winnie the Pooh” title tune, winsomely sung by Zooey Deschanel. And if the animation doesn’t have quite the hand-colored warmth of those older cel-animated classics, it more than does justice to the world’s favorite “tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff.” Co-writer/directors Stephen J. Anderson and Don Hall, with the help of five other credited screenwriters, emphasize Pooh’s literary roots, making Winnie work his way through paragraphs and pages of words — literal words that collapse into piles of letters at Pooh’s bidding. “Is there honey in this paragraph?” There had better be, because “I am a
Call me crazy, but I’m obsessed with the idea of finding "lost classics." I live to discover awesome movies that almost nobody’s heard of, like the trio of under-the-radar treats described below. If you have your own hidden gems and want to share, send me an email at email@example.com. ••• “SO GOES MY LOVE” (1946, Warner Archive, unrated, $25): Even though this delicious dramedy is set at the turn of the century, there’s something bracingly modern about the back-
bear of very little brain, and long words bother me,” he sighs. Voice actor Jim Cummings does a great impersonation of the late Sterling Holloway, the original Pooh, as well as Paul Winchell, the original voice of Tigger. The story is as simple as any Pooh picture. The bear is out of honey “and a Pooh bear takes care of his tummy.” But Pooh also has “a very important thing to do.” Sad old Eeyore (Bud Luckey) has lost his tail and the manic Rabbit (Tom Kenny) and verbose Owl (Craig Ferguson) make various plans and proposals for rounding up a replacement. Eeyore is all about the puns. A balloon as a substitute tail? “I’m still up in the air about it.” There’s a lovely little chalkboard animation interlude, some mild moments of alarm as Owl misreads “Back Soon” on Christopher Robin’s note as “Backson,” a beast that must have kidnapped the little boy who usually solves their problems for them. And Pooh sings, especially when he hallucinates about his favorite treat — “Everything is Honey.” It’s a funnier, more sophisticated and more nostalgic trip to the woods than “Pooh’s Heffalump Movie” or the most recent Tigger and Piglet pictures. The mess-
and-forth between an oddball inventor (Don Ameche) and his tarttongued wife (Myrna Loy). Don’t let the dopey title scare you off, “So Goes My Love” goes down easy. ••• “SOMETHING WILD” (1986, Criterion, R, $30) A stockbroker (Jeff Daniels) lunching in Greenwich Village gets taken for a ride, literally and figuratively, when he hooks up with a kook named Lulu (Melanie Griffith.) After comic interludes in North Jersey and Central Pennsylvania, “Something Wild” goes back

ages sink in about childish forgetfulness and putting the needs of others ahead of your own honey lust. Mainly, though, it’s nice to see that Disney wants to introduce tykes to the magic of going to the movies with family fare this gentle and warm. As always, “Pooh” stars in a very short movie, the idea being that like his youngest fans, he doesn’t have the attention span to carry a full-length feature. But this “Winnie the Pooh” is augmented by a delightful 2-D animated short, “The Ballad of Nessie,” a fanciful version of how the Loch Ness Monster came to create Loch Ness. “Nessie” is narrated in Dr. Seussstyle rhymes by Scottish comic Billy Connolly.

••• “THE SQUARE” (2010, Sony, R, $25): A wife (Claire Van Der Boom) who’s been cheating on her thug of a husband decides that she and her new boyfriend (David Roberts) should help themselves to hubby’s satchel of cash before riding off into the sunset.

oday is the end of an era. Some, like Warner Bros. executive Dan Fellman, compare the finality of “Harry Potter” to the breakup of the Beatles. The eighth and presumably final film based on the phenom that has sold 450 million books and almost a billion movie tickets opening in theaters from Lahore to Los Angeles marks twilight in the Potterverse. “It’s a little melancholy,” observes Johanna Winant, a doctoral student in literature at the University of Chicago, who grew up in Mount Airy inhaling the seven books that vividly detail seven years in the life of the orphaned wizard who avenges his parents’ deaths. Not only the fans of J.K. Rowling’s hero are experiencing withdrawal. For film execs and book publishers, educators and costume merchants, e-tailers and neighborhood booksellers, the pangs are as acute. Nearly as universal as Harry’s appeal is admiration for his cultural impact. Harry Potter has broken publishing and box-office records, boosted adolescent reading, erased the line between young-adult and adult fiction,
HALLOWS Continued from page 11
and had a steroidal impact on the profits of Amazon.com. “It’s the highest-grossing franchise in the history of the motionpicture industry,” Fellman says. “Usually, the law of diminishing returns applies to movie franchises,” says Paul Dergarabedian, analyst at Hollywood.com, who notes that from the first Harry film, in 2001, to the seventh, in 2010, box office has been consistently strong. “No other series has had a trajectory like this.” “I don’t think it’s possible to overstate the effects of Harry Potter on reading and on publishing,” says Diane Roback, children’s book editor at Publishers Weekly. “In terms of number of books sold, anticipation for new volumes in the series, getting children to read, getting adults to read books for children, and creating a cultural phenomenon, it is unmatched.” Harry struck a chord felt around the world. Nearly everyone agrees that Rowling, the welfare mom who wrote the first Potter book in an unheated apartment in Edinburgh, Scotland, while caring for her infant daughter, created characters and settings more notable for their emotional than their economic impact. Harry and Co. grew up, it seemed, in real time, mirroring readers’ and moviegoers’ own developmental stages.
bank is a riotous image of a corrupt financial firm’s collapse. Near the climax, Harry’s mentor Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) returns in a vision to advise the young wizard that words are potent forms of enchantment, rich with the power to hurt or heal. Here the secret of the series is revealed. If the Potter franchise had been cooked up in a studio pitch meeting with story-
Winant reflects, “For my younger brother’s micro-generation, who were 10 when the first book came out, the cosmology of Harry Potter is the most important thing. And that’s because in 2001, our country went to war against a shadowy evil.” “I wonder if Harry Potter would have been quite so important without al-Qaeda, which, like Voldemort, smeared itself across the sky in smoke,” she says. The first of the movies was released two months after the twin towers fell, and the last comes out two months after Osama bin Laden was slain. Is this really the end of Harry Potter? “One hears J.K. Rowling is writing a prequel,” says a reliable Hollywood source, “with Volume 1 about Harry’s parents, their meeting and love, and Volume 2 about the birth of Harry and the killing by Voldemort.” “We know she’s working on a project, but she hasn’t discussed it with us,” Fellman says. “We like that rumor.”
boards and visual-effects demos, it could never become the generation-defining phenomenon that it is. It captured the imagination of an era like no cultural event since Beatlemania because it stands on a solid million-word foundation created by J.K. Rowling. She put story and character front and center, and when they’re succeeding, the Potter films do, too. For all the movies’ dazzle and
flash and Hippogriffs, the characters are more vivid than the special effects. It is our emotional involvement with the three-dimensional heroes and villains, sidekicks and background players that draws us back time after time. The final chapter ends with an epilogue that puts a lump in your throat and makes you want to watch them all again from the beginning. That’s the definition of a classic.
GREEN LANTERN — Ryan Reynolds doesn’t have much to work with as he flies around in a skintight green suit and zaps stuff with his super-power ring. PG-13 for intense sci-fi violence and action. 114 minutes. ★ 1/2 HORRIBLE BOSSES — This is wildly, brazenly stupid — but also, you know, fun. It’s about three guys who hate their jobs and want to kill their bosses. Who among us hasn’t pondered such a plan? R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language and some drug material. 98 minutes. ★★★ LARRY CROWNE — Even the combined, blinding brilliance of Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts cannot salvage the corny, contrived script. Hanks, as Larry, undergoes a major life change when he finds himself downsized out of his job at a behemoth superstore. PG-13 for brief strong language and some sexual content. 98 minutes. ★ 1/2 MIDNIGHT IN PARIS — Woody Allen has found the right time and place with this, his lightest, funniest and most-satisfying movie in a long time, a pastry-light romantic fantasy.

PG for brief mild language. 108 minutes. ★★ MR.

Table games, poker get graded SLOTS PAYOUTS
PLAINS TOWNSHIP – Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs reached the one-year anniversary of the addition of table games to the casino earlier this week. While table-game play in the main casino looks quite similar to opening day, poker has been the subject of many changes. The updates in the room over the course of the year have brought out many positives, but some areas still could be addressed as the poker operation looks to grow, including the hosting of its biggest tournament to date at the end of the month. Here’s a report card for the Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs poker room at the end of one year: ••• ADAPTABILITY: Management has made clear its willingness to adjust. That is evident each month with tweaks to the tournament schedules and formats. There is no way to please all the players, but the changes are often an accurate read of what the majority would find interesting. The flexibility in the operation, run by poker manager Art Blanda, has often led to jumps in tournament entries. A+ ••• VARIETY: The biggest limitations come from the players. Supervisors and podium workers are willing to make extra announcements to try to get new games going if there is enough interest from players to support a different game or stakes. B ••• RAKE: There are better values to be found for cash game play in some parts of the country, but the room gets credit for staying even with or below its most direct competition in the amount it takes from each pot of cash games. B••• TOURNAMENT VALUE: Overall, the amount of tournament entry money that goes to prize money compared with what goes elsewhere (house fees, dealer tips, etc.) is better than a lot of casinos. The tournaments are less of a value in terms of prize money now that a dealer add-on of $5 per player is a virtual given. They are, however, more
For the week of June 27-July 3: NOTE: Fiscal year ended 6/30. Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs Wagers Week: $59,693,900.78 Fiscal year just completed: $2,868,369,372.63 Fiscal year to date: $32,037,248.15 Payouts Week: $53,824,301.70 Fiscal year just completed: $2,581,183,839.04 Fiscal year to date: $28,892,134.52 Mount Airy Casino & Resort Wagers Week: $44,431,388.72 Fiscal year just completed: $1,997,425,010.93 Fiscal year to date: $26,898,491.74 Payouts Week: $40,221,894.67 Fiscal year just completed: $1,809,671,050.60 Fiscal year to date: $24,314,814.53 SOURCE: PENNSYLVANIA GAMING CONTROL BOARD

of a value in terms of chips in play and how long they are likely to last. B ••• COMP RATE: If the room had 10 competitors in the same city, the comps players could earn would be much better. Without that competition, players are rewarded less for their play than in the longer-established operations. C••• DEALERS The job of a dealer is multifaceted. Dealers serve as the host, administrators and referees of the individual games running at their table. ••• CUSTOMER SERVICE: The dealing staff generally makes an effort to be cordial to players, who do not always return the courtesy. A••• TECHNICAL SKILL: The combination of skills needed, including a strong sense of math to make quick decisions that keep the game moving, is often overlooked. A staff that featured many trained for this job as their first assignment in the industry has shown steady improvement in those areas. B ••• GAME CONTROL: Staff members vary from strong to weak when it comes time to deal with difficulties, such as players who make constant mistakes or intentionally try to push rules to the limit. Too many remain unwill-
ing to enforce some of the game’s stricter rules and/or are naïve enough to think it is being too nitpicky to do so. Those who excuse rules violations over the fear of it impacting the tips they work for do an injustice to the players who play by the book. C••• OPERATIONS ••• RULINGS: Floor personnel are often called to deal with trouble. Their response time is usually immediate. They are faced with the most difficult decisions, sometimes armed with misinformation as players try to present their case. Inconsistency in enforcement is a problem at times, but again an area that is improving, particularly in cash play. B••• PODIUM WITH DOTTIE: The best example of customer service comes when regulars emerge from the escalator to be greeted by Dottie Malloy, who already knows what games they play and immediately lets them know of their options. The management of the reservation list, an early problem area in the room, is best run when Malloy is at the controls on busy evenings. A+ ••• PODIUM WITHOUT DOTTIE: Although improving, having other staffers, primarily dealers, rotate through the podium between their regular assignments, does not work as well in managing the “list” during busy times. Seats are getting “stolen” away
and remained unfilled less often. C+ ••• AMENITIES Outside the game itself, several small factors can make a trip to the room more or less enjoyable. ••• TELEVISIONS: The many flat screens are well-placed, and the staff is willing to adjust the options – generally a choice of sporting events and ESPN’s Sports Center – to accommodate requests from players in particular areas of the room. A ••• CLEANLINESS: The room is usually kept neat. A••• FOOD: The selection from a small snack bar in the adjacent room is lacking in variety and quality. Some of the in-house restaurants will deliver if the player makes the contact. The best fastfood option for many players has become a short walk to the horse racing area. C ••• DRINK SERVICE: Servers can seem to have disappeared when shift changes are not well coordinated, but otherwise a steady cycle of waitresses alternates in taking and delivering orders. Again,
based on the treatment and commentary they are sometimes subjected to, the demeanor of the staff is commendable. B ••• RESTROOMS: The men’s room needs to be cleaned better and more often to keep up to the standards of the rest of the casino. Although women clearly make up the distinct minority in the room, the longer walk they have borders on a competitive disadvantage in tournament situations. C ••• TOURNAMENT STRUCTURE: With the exception of turbo events, which do not yet fit the intent of the format, the structures are excellent, giving as much chance for skill to emerge as reasonably possible. When the most frequent complaint is too much play and too long to sort out the best players, a room is doing something right. A••• SCOREBOARD: Some night staffing combinations are slow to update remaining players and, in turn, the average chip stack. Otherwise, it is generally more up-todate than most casinos, therefore providing a quality service to players. B+ ••• PAYOUTS: Players usually collect for the bubble, finding a way on their own to pay one more. Some players want less paid or more structures that keep close to a strict 10 percent in the money, rather than top five or top nine that make it in most events. The bottom line, however, is that the structures provide a logical combination of a sufficient chance to make the money and a big enough reward at the top end. A••• CONSISTENCY: Rulings and enforcement change from dealer to dealer, table to table and shift to shift. Examples include one dealer scooping up cards from empty seats the moment the button is dealt to – as stated in the rules – then five minutes later a different dealer leaving the cards out while watching for a player to walk across the room and play the hand. Cell-phone use is closely monitored in the day and often ignored at night. B

Despite rainy summer, River Common keeps things festive By MARY THERESE BIEBEL firstname.lastname@example.org
n one corner, popcorn volunteers Dan Pritchard and Johnny Espinoza kept busy shoveling golden gallons of donated kernels into single-serving bags. In another, Jessica Hendler helped her friends Ashley Farrow and Jennifer Simonik spread a table with treats from their business, “Let ’em Eat Cupcakes.” Key lime and banana split were flavors of the night. The popcorn was free; the cupcakes – some of them vegan – were $2. Whatever movie-goers chose, they wouldn’t go hungry as they settled in for a downtown Wilkes-Barre showing of 1987’s “Dragnet” starring Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks. The price of the movie was right, too. It was free – which was perfect for Melanie Shepherd, 31, and Matt Rogers, 33, of Kingston, who brought 6-month-old Thomas to what would be his first away-fromhome movie – as long as he didn’t become cranky. “We don’t have to feel bad if the baby gets restless and we have to leave,” Rogers said. The only wrinkle of the evening seemed to be the rain. The free movie was a River Common event, scheduled to be shown outdoors on July 8 in the River Common Amphitheater. When skies clouded and raindrops fell – an oh-so-frequent occurrence this year, with the Wilkes-Barre area recording precipitation more than eight inches
Dan Pritchard, left, and Johnny Espinoza fill up bags of popcorn before the showing of ‘Dragnet’ as part of the River Common entertainment series. The popcorn was donated by Movies 14.

above average – Director of River Common Programming Karl Borton decided to move the showing indoors to the nearby Downtown Arts Building on North Franklin Street. He set up a sign at the riverfront, made an announcement on Facebook, had the inflatable screen set up inside Downtown Arts and watched a handful of people show up instead of the 500 he had hoped would attend. It would have been better out-
side, one of the early arrivals noted. “You have that nice river background,” Ryan Rutledge, 25, of Kingston said. Hendler, 26, of Luzerne, agreed the outdoor amphitheater is an ideal spot for a movie, based on her experience watching “E.T.” a few weeks ago. “It was awesome,” she said. “Everybody could see (because of the tiered seating.) A lot of people brought lawn chairs, people
brought children, and it was very informal. “I love old movies,” Hendler continued, “and I like it when they’re cheap. Ten dollars is more than I want to spend to sit inside and not socialize.” At the outdoor venue, she said, she enjoyed mingling before “E.T.” started. She also enjoyed being older – and therefore less frightened – by that particular movie than she was when it debuted in 1982. “I was terrified,” she said with a laugh. “I watched it through a blanket when I was a kid.” The recent showing of “E.T.” had been rescheduled from an earlier date – when it rained, said Espinoza, 21, a Wilkes University student who is interning with Borton. Future movies scheduled for the River Common include “Field of Dreams” on July 22, “Aladdin” on Aug. 5 and “Batman” starring Adam West on Aug. 19. Concerts scheduled for the River Common include Classic Jazz on the River at 7 p.m. Sunday, the music of Nowhere Slow, SUZE and Balloon Corps at 6:30 p.m. July 21 and the music of Leroy Justice and Lemongelli at 7 p.m. July 23. A tent will be set up so the concerts can be held rain or shine, Borton said. As for the movies, he’s thinking it will be better to reschedule them in case of rain rather than to move them indoors. “We didn’t get much of a crowd (last week),” he conceded. Still, some movie-goers didn’t mind last week’s change of venue. “I’m always looking for something to do,” said Paulette Patton, who lives in downtown WilkesBarre. She was happy to bring her husband, Lowell Patton, to the indoor flick and said she’s looking forward to more visits to the River Common. “I love it,” she said. “It’s beautiful.”

f you haven’t been to a bazaar yet this season, you’re missing out. Last weekend, your choices were all over the local map, and this weekend is no exception. Our photographer landed at Holy Trinity Church in Swoyersville, known especially for its homemade ethnic food. If you need a day, or three, off from cooking, you can check out an array of bazaars again this weekend: • Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Hunlock Creek and Our Lady of Mount Carmel/St. Rocco in Pittston as well as Exaltation of the Holy Cross in Hanover Township and the Mountain Top Hose Company (tonight through Sunday) • St. Nicholas in Wilkes-Barre and St. Mary and St. Peter & Paul in Avoca (tonight and tomorrow) • Holy Name of Jesus at Transfiguration Church in West Hazleton (Saturday and Sunday) • And finally, the bazaar at the Germania Hose Company in Duryea runs not only this weekend but Tuesday through Sunday of next week. For addresses and details, see the Events listings in this publication. Happy eating, and happy winning. S. JOHN WILKIN PHOTOS/THE TIMES LEADER

CELEBRITY Q&A BY R.D. HELDENFELS
BY MICHAEL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK
Sequels in the works for 2012 Q. Can you check your crystal ball and see if there will be any new “Star Trek,” “James Bond” and “Superman” movies in the future? A. Yes to all three. Although the 23rd official Bond film has long been delayed, it is now reportedly being prepared — with Daniel Craig returning as Bond. Director J.J. Abrams has also dropped hints about a sequel to his 2009 “Star Trek.” And “Man of Steel,” the latest Superman movie (with Henry Cavill in the title role and Zack Snyder directing), is in the works. This could make for a busy holiday season in 2012, since the movies are set for November and December of next year.
PREVIOUS DAY’S SOLUTION
Q. I just watched the season finale of “Army Wives.” Does this mean that there will be no more of the show? Really have enjoyed it. Would hate to see it go.
A. While the season finale of “Army Wives” certainly looked like a farewell, with the show’s military base scheduled to be shut down and the characters scattering, the Lifetime series has been renewed for another season. There was a blink-and-you’llmiss-it teaser for the next run at the end of the season finale.

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will con-
front many obstacles to your success. That you are willing to do so head-on is your main strength. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). An unexpected snafu takes up more time than you had planned. There is a litany of dissatisfactions and frustrations that you could blame this on, and yet you rise above it. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You could chase many dreams at once, but your lack of detectable progress would probably frustrate you.
ON THE WEB For more Sudoku go to www.timesleader.com
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You are not as
reactive to the goings on around you as others seem to be. You learn what you need to know, and you see the process as the means to an end. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Avoiding obligations is actually a good tactic now, since it’s likely that you feel more obligated than is appropriate. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). When the others around you are nervous, you feel it, too. You want to do something to alleviate the feeling, but the best thing you could do is experience it for all it has to teach you and then let it pass. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The quest for perfection is self-defeating. Strive to be more in touch with your human frailty
and fallibility instead. This connects you with the compassion inside you and brings about your comfort and joy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your selfworth is not determined by the acceptance of those around you, although it is only human to be influenced by such external cues. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have more gumption than you did yesterday, but don’t let that influence you when it’s time to make a promise. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Social ups and downs are inevitable, and today such fluctuations are not to be taken too personally. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are a master at reading people now. You’ll
detect the nuances of other people’s attitudes, and you’ll note what you observe. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). No matter how close a relationship is, you are still two people, and you need a degree of separateness and the freedom to explore autonomously. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 15). You will detach from unhealthy preoccupations and center your life on what truly makes you happy. You’ll work out stress through physical fitness and sports, and you’ll love your new shape. Exciting business happens in September. A relationship becomes a main event in October. November brings a windfall. Pisces and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 1, 22, 49 and 38.
Aunt’s trepidation shouldn’t ruin teen’s trip of a lifetime Dear Abby: My 13-year-old daughter, “Alisa,” has earned a scholarship to participate in a month-long summer language program in Turkey. As soon as my sister “June” found out I was allowing Alisa to attend, she called me a moron. June is terrified my daughter will be a victim of terrorists, a plane crash, kidnapping or worse. Alisa has consistently proven she is trustworthy and respon-
DEAR ABBY ADVICE sible. After some research I determined the country and the program are safe. Alisa will be traveling with a small group of students and three adult chaperones who are native to the host country. Our mother was afraid of everything, and I don’t want to pass that kind of irrational fear on to Alisa after she worked so hard to earn a once-in-a-
lifetime opportunity that could shape the course of her life. Am I really a poor parent for allowing my child to travel halfway around the world? — Stunned Sister in Little Rock Dear Stunned Sister: A poor parent? Not at all. You would be one if you caved in to your sister’s emotional blackmail. Taking this trip is a privilege your daughter worked hard for, and seeing firsthand that there is a world filled with interest-
ing, good people will open her mind to opportunities and possibilities that few people her age are able to experience. Dear Abby: My wife uses her hands to push her food around her dinner plate and onto her fork or spoon. Every once in a while I feel compelled to ask her to stop using her hands to eat. When I do she says I’m “rude” to even take notice of how she eats and mention it. Am I rude? — Minded My Manners in New Jersey
Dear Minded Your Manners: According to Emily Post: “If a piece of food keeps eluding your fork, don’t push it onto the tines with your finger. Instead, use a piece of bread or your knife as a pusher.” (Italics are mine.) Share this with your wife and the situation may improve. To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send a business-sized, self-addressed envelope, plus check or money order for $3.95 ($4.50 in Canada) to: Dear Abby’s “Keepers,” P.O.

TV TALK Today
Back on the butcher block By SANDRA SNYDER email@example.com
Let the reign of terror begin anew. In the flurry of food-centric TV that has taken over the airwaves of late, none quite compares to the top-rated “Hell’s Kitchen” on FOX, starring our beloved grouchy Scotsman Gordon Ramsay and a band of his would-be head chefs at whatever will be his next great restaurant. Say what you will about Ramsay – he’s acerbic, intolerable, fake – maybe even the best, most unrecognized actor on the small screen today? – but those who step into his kitchen have proven they have enough of their own mouthy attitude and moxie to at least keep things interesting, phony or not, in the back-and-forth while the food and fur fly. Thanks to a previous run on “Hell’s Kitchen” by Hazleton’s Jen Yemola, who not only lived to tell the tale but almost made it all the way (third place in the third season), we know the FOX hit can’t be all that scripted (or maybe we would have gotten Yemola to spill by now). As contestants go and have gone on “HK,” Yemola represents one of the most well-groomed, softspoken and professional of all, in our humble opinion. She never threw any punches, or
pans, nor did she ever to attempt to get all up in the big man’s grill in a made-forTV moment. The worst she Ramsay ever did, poor girl, was “bin” (a.k.a. trash) some spaghetti, rinse it in boiling water and then try to reuse it. Hilton Scranton sous chef Maria Torrisi also had a run on the show but lasted only into the fifth episode of the seventh season, so we didn’t get to know her as well. Perhaps it worked out for the best? Season 7 winner Holly Ugalde, it’s been reported, ultimately was denied her promised head-chef job at the Savoy Grill in London. Ramsay’s side reportedly said it was a visa issue, while her side alleged it was pretty much a set-up and the real head chef was hired before she even won the show. So what will Season 9, which beings at 8 p.m. EST Tuesday, bring? Who knows? Keep in mind, this is, after all, a reality show, and we all know that means plenty of it won’t exactly be, um, real. Are there better choices on a Tuesday night? Of course. But, hey, you might pick up a cooking tip or two for tuning in.

newcomers Louis C.K. for “Louie” and Johnny Galecki for “The Big Bang Theory,” and last year’s winner, Jim Parsons, also for “The Big Bang Theory.” Louis C.K. also earned a nomination for the editing of his comedy series. Also vying for lead comedy actress are Tina Fey for “30 Rock,” Melissa McCarthy for “Mike & Molly” and Amy Poehler for “Parks & Recreation.” Though the Emmys are criticized for doling out honors to the same old faces and shows year after year, five of the 12 nominated comedy and drama series are first-time nominees. Two octogenarians and Emmy favorites, Betty White and Cloris Leachman, earned nominations. White received her 17th nomination for supporting actress in a comedy series, for “Hot in Cleveland,” and Leachman got her 22nd nomination in the same category for “Raising Hope.” Jane Lynch, who won supporting actress in a comedy for “Glee” last year, is hosting the ceremony, which will air Sept. 18 on Fox.

Joining Hall for best actor in drama series are Steve Buscemi for “Boardwalk Empire,” Kyle Chandler for “Friday Night Lights,” Hugh Laurie for “House,” Jon Hamm for “Mad Men” and Timothy Olyphant for “Justified.” Best-actress nominees in a drama series are Kathy Bates for “Harry’s Law,” Connie Britton for “Friday Night Lights,” Mireille Enos in “The Killing,” Jean Marsh for “Upstairs / Downstairs,” Julianna Margulies for “The Good Wife” and Elizabeth Moss for “Mad Men.” Other lead actors nominated in a comedy series are Alec Baldwin for “30 Rock,” Steve Carell for his final season on “The Office,”

LOS ANGELES — HBO dominated the nominations Thursday for the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards, earning a stunning 104 nods, including honors for its two freshmen series, “Game of Thrones” and “Boardwalk Empire,” as well as the acclaimed miniseries “Mildred Pierce” and the TV movies “Cinema Verite” and “Too Big to Fail,” about the nation’s banking crisis. “Mildred Pierce” earned the most nominations, a staggering 21 nods including best miniseries, best actress (Kate Winslet) and best director (Todd Haynes). There wasn’t a close second. CBS had 50 nominations and NBC 46. But Showtime also scored with a best-series nomination for “Dexter” and a nod for its star, Michael C. Hall. Also performing well: Edie Falco of “Nurse Jackie,” Laura Linney of “The Big C” and Matt LeBlanc of “Episodes.” The series with the most nominations were “Mad Men” with 19, “Boardwalk Empire” with 18, “Modern Family” with 17 and “Game of Thrones” with 13. Nominated for best drama series are “Mad Men,” which has won this top prize three years in a row, “Dexter,” “The Good Wife,” “Game of Thrones,” “Boardwalk
