alk to Colonel Timothy W. Foley, and he’ll tell you his old college roommate Michael Barone did him a huge favor more than 40 years ago by taking over his duties on a radio station’s music program. • “It required more than just saying ‘this piece is by thus and such,’ ” Foley said. “It required knowledge that I just didn’t have.”• Talk to Barone, and he’ll say Foley did him a great service, convincing him to come out of his shell.

“He was a brave kid and signed up immediately to do announcing on the campus radio (at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music),” Barone said. “I was much too timid for that, but he somehow managed to twist my arm and convince me to swallow my fear and get on the air.” The arrangement suited both men just fine. Foley, who grew up in Berwick, went on to a distinguished career as 26th director of “The President’s Own” Marine Band, and Barone, who grew up in Kingston, remained in the world of radio broadcasting, sharing his musical knowledge and what Foley calls his “wonderfully resonant speaking voice.” You can hear Barone on “Pipe Dreams,” a show devoted to organ music that is produced at Minnesota Public Radio. At 8 tonight in the Buckingham Performing Arts Center of Wyoming Seminary, the two long-time

sages from the Gettysburg Address. “One of the things I most love about Aaron Copland is his ability to say a lot through very simple means,” said Foley, who considers The Lincoln Portrait to be “part of our American musical culture.” Both men said they are eager to work with the young musicians at the Performing Arts Institute. Foley especially has fond memories of the musicians who taught him when he was a youth

ago I worked with an intercollegiate band. Three or four students from Wilkes came, and I said, ‘You folks are on sacred ground. Someday you will know that you have teachers who will stay with you all your life.’ ”

he American Cancer Society’s Duck Derby has taken place for 23 years now and, more often than not, the Susquehanna River has kept the event on shore. “Each year the river has been too high or too low, and the ducks weren’t allowed in,” Relay for Life regional manager Desiree Thorne said. “The ducks can’t go in the water if there’s any type of drought or excess rain, and that’s happened a lot.” The goal has always been to dump the rubber toys into the river from the Veterans Memorial Bridge and let them float downstream until a winner crossed the finish line at the Market Street Bridge. If the ducks were banned from the waterway, which happened more often than not, the tickets bought to represent each were thrown into a barrel and drawn to determine winners. “That’s never entertaining,” Thorne said, “so this year we want-

ed to make sure the event was everything it could possibly be. We don’t want anyone disappointed.” The reworked Duck Derby will take place tomorrow at the Coal Street Complex in Wilkes-Barre, where thousands of numbered ducks will be thrown into a large pool and KRZ’s Rocky, the event’s honorary chair, will dive in and scoop out the winners. The cancer society is aiming to set a new tone this year. “We want it to be more of a festival atmosphere, so we added as much as we could,” Thorne said. That means food and drink, plus several children’s games, provided by the cancer society and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. awanna State Park, Dalton. 2 to 4 p.m. July 28. 945-7110.

The Penguins also will offer tours of the team’s locker rooms. The event has always taken place on July 4, but Thorne said attendance was an issue. “We would sell a ton of tickets prior to the event, but barely anyone would show up because it was on a holiday,” she said. “From now on the event will take place every year on the third Saturday of July.” The event runs from noon to 3 p.m., but the actual drawing of the ducks will begin at 2 p.m. The firstplace prize is $1,000, followed by 50-plus more prizes, such as movie passes, gift certificates to local businesses, savings bonds and gym memberships. Other big items include a white-gold diamond necklace from Rainbow Jewelers and a Viper remote car starter from Mizenko Mobile & Wireless. Tickets are $5 per duck and $25 for a pack of six and can be purchased at the event. The event is looked at as a post-Relay for Life fundraiser, the signature event of the American Cancer Society.

style welcome arch will greet you, as will (likely) a small herd of bikers. Yes, this is a pull-upand-eat sort of place that somehow still retains a quiet charm. The bikers are indeed mannerly. Many we observed were enjoying traditional barbecue-pit meals, so, of course, we, too, had to give one a try. Our taster highly approved. She ordered a half-rack of BBQ pork ribs ($15.95) and declared the portion “absolutely the biggest half-rack I’ve ever seen.” But the quality matched the quantity. The meat was falling-off-thebone tender, and the accompaniments – sweet corn, a baked potato (you also can have fries), baked beans and coleslaw – were both tasty and generous as well. Particular raves went to the slaw, which was light, sweet and not at all mayonnaise-y. From the same menu, I ordered a less elaborate porketta sandwich for $5.95. I was not as wowed here, though the allwhite meat was impressively low on “junk” and had a nice, smoky flavor. What I missed was the seasoning, often dill-heavy, I usually associate with porketta. This version was a bit basic for me. Or perhaps I was just too in

love with the previously tasted pagach to think much else of this otherwise perfectly fine sandwich. BBQ fans also can choose a half chicken, smoked brisket, flame-roasted top round of beef, a 12-ounce Delmonico or even a Brazilian lobster tail, to name just a few pit selections. Now back to the traditional menu, which contains much more than pizza. We’re sorry we could only taste a couple of the smaller items – and couldn’t possibly handle full-on dinners, which were available – but we’re

a small crew, you understand. So a couple of “shareables” from the “favorites” menu it was. A $5.75 broccoli roll was a true winner. This 8-inch creation was stuffed to its bready gills with fresh, large pieces of chopped broccoli, neither mushy nor crunchy but just right, and oozing hot mozzarella cheese. A dipping cup of marinara sauce – cheddar is another option – was served hot, and this fact was much appreciated. Our main taster only wished for a bit of red See REVIEW, Page 13

Stay true to your stout REVIEW

By SARA POKORNY spokorny@timesleader.com

These hot, hot days may not seem like the best time to down a heavy brew, but you’d be surprised what you’ll find if you give it a try. “Stout is dark beer, but that doesn’t mean it’s not as refreshing as a light beer,” Chuck Yarmey of the Wyoming Valley Homebrewers Club said. “You just need to find the right one, and there are plenty to choose from. Chocolate and coffee stouts may be the best to start with because those tastes are familiar.” What makes the beer so dark? “Stouts are made by using roasted malt or barley, hops, water and yeast,” Yarmey said. “They have a very strong taste.” Stout has several different categories. Dry or Irish stout has a coffeelike taste, the most popular of its kind being Guinness. Imperial stout, also known as Russian Imperial Stout, is a strong beer first brewed in the 18th century. It has higher alcohol content, usually above 9 percent. Milk stout contains lactose, adding sweetness and body to the beer. Oatmeal stout has a large portion of oats involved in the brewing process, which can lend the beer a bitter taste. Chocolate and coffee stout taste just like their name implies. Oyster

stout may be a name that gives drinkers pause, but the final product doesn’t taste like oysters. While oysters are thrown into the barrel during brewing, the beer’s taste doesn’t reflect it and stays dark and true to stout style. Below are several different types of stouts available locally. ••• All sold at Krugel’s Georgetown Deli & Beer, 720 Wilkes-Barre Township Blvd., Wilkes-Barre • DOGFISH HEAD CHICORY STOUT Price: $10.99 per four-pack of bottles Type: American Stout Alcohol by volume: 5.20 percent • WYERBACHER OLD HEATHEN IMPERIAL STOUT Price: $14.50 per six-pack of bottles Type: Imperial stout ABV: 8.00 percent • BOAKS MONSTER MASH Price: $12.99 per fourpack of bottles Type: Russian imperial stout ABV: 10.00 percent • WILD ONION BREWING COMPANY JACK STOUT Price: $17.99 per sixpack of cans Type: Oatmeal stout ABV: 6.00 percent

CELEBRITY Q&A BY R.D. HELDENFELS

JUMBLE

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

BY MICHAEL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

CBS has decided not to renew CSI: Miami Q. Will there be any new episodes of “CSI: Miami” coming this fall? A. No. CBS decided not to renew the crime drama starring David Caruso. It did renew “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “CSI: NY.” Q. Has the 1960s TV series “Batman” starring Adam West and Burt Ward ever been released on DVD? A. As far as I can tell, there has not been an authorized release (and I do not recommend unauthorized releases of that or any other series). It is not clear why a big-screen “Batman: The Movie,” made in 1966 with the TV series cast, is available. Q. I’ve been looking for the TV series “Mayberry, RFD,” and the TV-movie “Return to Mayberry” on DVD. I’ve never found either of them.

PREVIOUS DAY’S SOLUTION

CRYPTOQUOTE

A. I do not know of an authorized release of “Mayberry, RFD,” which succeeded “The Andy Griffith Show” from 1968 to 1971. The centerpiece was Sam Jones, played by Ken Berry, but several supporting players from the Griffith Show were also featured. “Return to Mayberry,” a 1986 movie reuniting the Griffith Show cast, is not available as a separate, authorized DVD as far as I can tell. But it has been included in some compilations, including “The Andy Griffith Show 50th Anniversary: The Best of Mayberry” set. Do you have a question or comment for the mailbag? Write to me at rheldenfels@thebeaconjournal.com or by regular mail to the Akron Beacon Journal, 44 E. Exchange St., Akron, OH 44309.

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

PAGE 14

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Team up. If

you have a shared goal, you’ll achieve it together. If you don’t, the onus will be entirely on you to come up with a sense of purpose. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Situations that are different from what you expect and are used to will bring out the best in you. Since you won’t have a reference for interpreting external cues, you’ll be forced to pull from an inner wisdom. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A Jewish proverb says: “I felt sorry for myself because

ON THE WEB For more Sudoku go to www.timesleader.com I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.” The less fortunate will have a way of startling you into gratitude. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your prejudices and judgments are only trying to protect you from danger. Instead of condemning yourself for what comes automatically to mind, examine it and determine whether it serves you or should be lovingly let go. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ve been feeling like an unwanted guest in your own life lately, but that’s about to change. Remember that home is closer than you know. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Some people only believe in fate when it’s to their advantage; when things go wrong, they

invoke randomness instead. But everything is connected. Think carefully about your decisions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Things might be tense at work or in school. Be sure to defuse any potential time bombs with a bit of patience, empathy and communication. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Misery might love company, but it secretly loves a little optimism and hope even more. When you’re commiserating with friends, remember to accentuate the positive. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The hardest lessons often happen when we don’t even realize we’re in a classroom. But learning happens everywhere, so remember to pay attention.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Dark

clouds are hovering, but like any summer storm, they will pass quickly. Just make sure your windows are closed when the rain hits. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ve been flying high, and the skies are still clear and sunny. But don’t forget to acknowledge and thank the co-pilots and navigators. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Many have been telling you lately to stop daydreaming and get things done. Just remember that all action begins in thought. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (July 20). You’ll receive when all you’re trying to do is give. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 44, 39 and 16.


Man pays for one-night stand with seven-year punishment Dear Abby: Seven years ago, while on a business trip to Europe, I went to a bar, got drunk and went back to my hotel with one of the “hostesses.” It was a one-night stand, but my wife found out.

hristopher Nolan concludes his Batman trilogy in typically spectacular, ambitious fashion with “The Dark Knight Rises,” but the feeling of frustration is unshakable. With Christian Bale as his tortured superhero starting from 2005’s “Batman Begins,” Nolan has explored the complicated, conflictingmotivationsofmanaswellasthepossibilityofsocietalgreatnessandredemption. Herehe’sunrelentinginhammeringhome the dread, the sorrow, the sense of detachment and futility of a city on the brink of collapse with no savior in sight. Identity theft, economic collapse and an uprising of the disgruntled, disenfranchised have-nots against the smug, comfy haves also come into play. But this tale is plot-heavy, process-obsessed and laden with dialogue and flashbacks that bog down the momentum.

Several new characters manage to draw Bruce out of his funk. Anne Hathaway brings much-needed zest as Selina Kyle, otherwise known as Catwoman. The other woman in Bruce’s life, however, is woefully underdeveloped, a real problem because she plays a key role in the climactic revelations. Marion Cotillard co-stars as Miranda Tate, a wealthy philanthropist who hopes to work with Wayne Enterprises to develop clean, sustainable energy. The romance that develops between her and Bruce is utterly unbelievable. Joseph Gordon-Levitt adds a youthful presence as John Blake, an up-and-coming

New romance, action, comedy and sci-fi DVD offerings hit stores this week. “FRIENDS WITH KIDS,” GRADE C-: Best friends decide to have a baby together. Adam Scott stars. The film from writer/director/star Jennifer Westfeldt takes one step further the concept of best friends having uncommitted sex. Best buds Jason (Scott) and Julie (Westfeldt) plan to have sex one time so they can conceive a child. They want offspring, but they also want to keep dating. They plan to share child-raising duties equally. It’s an idea that their friends—and the audience—know from the start just won’t work. Both begin to get jealous of the other’s love life, and that eventually affects their agreement. “LOCKOUT,” GRADE C: A rogue cop (Guy Pearce) must infiltrate a space prison to save the president’s daughter (Maggie Grace). “Lockout” would be little more than a movie version of a second-tier video game without Guy Pearce. The irreverence, cockiness and bravado he brings to the character of Snow is almost electric enough to put this action film in the same league as “Die Hard.” ••• Also new on DVD July 17: “Salmon Fishing In The Yemen”: A British fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is asked to help bringing fly-fishing to the desert. “Designing Women: The Final Season”: Dixie Carter stars in the CBS comedy. “Extraterrestrial”: An apocalyptic comedy starring Michelle Jenner. “Sanctuary: The Complete Fourth Season”: The final season of the series starring Amanda Tapping. “The Three Stooges”: Moe, Larry and Curly are off on new headslapping adventures. Sean Hayes stars. “Timmy Time: Happy Birthday Timmy”: A day in the life of barnyard preschoolers. “MLK: The Assassination Tapes”: A look at the manhunt for Dr. King’s assassin and the riots that erupted across the country.

alk about pressure. You might feel nervous telling a story to a strict teacher, a stern police officer or even an audience full of people more likely to fall asleep than to applaud. But what if you were presenting a story to a king who might want to chop off your head if he wasn’t sufficiently entertained? That’s the situation a young woman named Scheherazade faces in a play by the same name, which the Take the Stage Players will present tonight and tomorrow at the Back Mountain Memorial Library in Dallas. The original tale, culled from the legends of The Arabian Nights, explains the king had been betrayed by a woman and wanted to take revenge on all the women in his kingdom by marrying them one at a time and then getting rid of them. Rumor has it the king is ordering that these women have their heads chopped off, but in reality, “they’re just hiding them away,” director Chris Metz explained. Scheherazade, for her part, “comes up with a plan to change the king by offering to become his wife and telling him stories to show that revenge is not the

thought, the sampler here said, the chicken might have been moister had it been chopped, but the fair amount of cheese went far to make up for the bit of dryness. We also tried two soups: a split pea, which was too thick for our taste (but, again, that’s a preference), and a homemade Manhattan clam chowder that was packed with clams but otherwise fairly ordinary. Unlike the pagach. Have I stressed that enough? I really, really, REALLY loved the pagach. If you’re from Wilkes-Barre or nearby, is it worth the drive, though? Resolved: yes. As a bonus, there are some

interesting things to see and do nearby to justify your petrol outlay. Downtown Honesdale has plenty of old-world charm (and plenty of old-fashioned “little shops”), plus a huge furniture emporium in the colors of a Christmas tree known as Van Gorders’ that will have you wishing you could redecorate every room of your house. It’s mostly cabin-style stuff, but if

that’s not for you, you’re likely to at least dream of that vacation by the lake. (We walked out with a pie-wedge side table, though.) Also nearby are the Antler Ridge Winery and the popular Keen Lake Camping & Cottage Resort, a regional charmer. Then there’s the big old prison, of course. Don’t do anything we wouldn’t do. Because we don’t really want you going there. Maybe, then, don’t go to the Waymart Hotel all at once, storming the gates and demanding pagach. We wouldn’t want to cause a shortage. Or a riot. Then again, some people say certain foods are to die for. I wouldn’t go that far, but, heck, for this stuff I might actually spend a night in jail. Times Leader food critics remain anonymous.
