House, which was dark except for the occasional flash of a photographer’s camera or beam from a reporter’s flashlight. The discussion turned to times the group heard mysterious voices ordering them to “get out” of various sites. “That’s not usually a friendly message,” Bob Christopher of Wilkes-Barre said. Then there was the time Christopher investigated his own childhood home and heard a voice declare, “You lived here.” “That kind of freaked me out,” he said. During another investigation, this one in the Columbia County Courthouse, the group heard a mysterious whistle — in a “perfect B scale.” “Nobody whistles like that,” said Kathy Christopher, who is Bob’s wife. Wood from Columbia County’s former gallowshadbeenrecycledintothebuilding,investigator David Conklin Jr. said, suggesting that hadsomethingtodowiththewhistlingsound. The NEPA Paranormal group uses an arsenal of equipment including infrared cameras, recorders that detect “electronic voice phenomena,” digital thermometers that reveal drops in temperature and K2 meters that measure electromagnetic fields. All of this can help detect an otherworldly presence, they said. And, if anyone is skeptical, they don’t care. “When people contact us, they need help,” Kathy Christopher said. “We know what we believe,” her husband added.

ould the Denison House be haunted? What about the Swetland Homestead? The structures were built in 1790 and 1803, respectively, and for decades members of the Denison and Swetland families lived — and no doubt died — in the historical homes. “We had a couple funny things happen,” Luzerne County Historical Society curator Mary Ruth Burke said, recalling a time when the Swetland Homestead hosted an exhibit devoted to mourning customs of the past. “We were all in morbid mode, I guess,” Burke said. “There was a door that opened, andanoiseupstairsthatwecouldn’texplain.” Ah, but a draft could have opened the door. An old floor board might have simply creaked. Then again, maybe something less mundane was going on. “A gentleman once toured the Denison House,” Historical Society director Tony Brooks said. “I heard about this at a meeting. He communicated to us he had a sense of a good spirit hanging around the entrance to the attic. She was a female and very happy.” If these hints of supernatural activity intrigue you, you may want to join investigators from NEPA Paranormal as they visit the Denison House in Forty Fort tonight and the Swetland Homestead in Wyoming tomorrow. Membersofthegroupalreadyhavetoured both places and recorded information for futureepisodesoftheirtelevisionshowthatairs on Channel 38 and Fox 56 on Friday nights. Not wanting to ruin any surprises, they don’t want to reveal what they’ve found until after this weekend’s events. They do admit that, during 250 investigations of many locations during the past five years, they have encountered plenty of inexplicable phenomena. They talked about some of it earlier this week, during another visit to the Denison

‘Wives of Windsor’ a merry play By MARY THERESE BIEBEL mbiebel@timesleader.com

IF YOU GO

The portly suitor strokes Mistress Ford’s face, awkwardly mussing her hair against her jaw as he proclaims his love. “Have I caught thee, heavenly jewel?” he gushes. “Why, now let me die, for I have lived long enough.” After more compliments, kisses and his self-described sinful wish, “I would thy husband were dead,” Sir John Falstaff is interrupted by a servant, who announces Mistress Ford’s friend, Mistress Page, has arrived, “sweating and blowing and looking wildly.” “Oh, Mistress Ford, what have you done?” Mistress Page gasps. “You’re shamed! You’re overthrown! You’re undone forever!” Welcome to Shakespeare’s “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” a lively comedy for which the King’s Players of King’s College have been rehearsing practical jokes, swordfights, chase scenes and a humorous script. Much of the merriment centers on the fun Mistress Page, Mistress Ford and some friends

Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen play lifelong best friends in the film ‘50/50.’

‘50/50’ a must-see By CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic

It could have been agonizingly mawkish: the story of a young man with everything ahead of him who learns he has a rare spinal cancer and only a 50 percent chance of surviving. Instead, “50/ 50” is uproariously funny, human and insightful. Comedy writer Will Reiser crafted the script based on his own cancer diagnosis in his early 20s. His words are filled with dark humor and a wry recognition of the gravity of the situation but real tenderness, too. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, an actor of great range, is Adam, a reporter at Seattle’s public radio station. He receives his diagnosis after having a doctor examine him for chronic back pain. Adam goes through all the stages of denial but with believable imperfection

and never feels like a martyr. He’s not always gracious in adversity and can be a little surly and emotionally closed-off. But he has a great balance in his lifelong best friend and co-worker, the lovably crass Kyle (Seth Rogen). Sure, he uses his buddy’s illness to line up sympathy sex for both of them, but you know he means well. Anna Kendrick may seem familiar to you as Adam’s inexperienced, young therapist; it seems like the kind of eager-beaver, over-

The robbery is the film’s focus, but an unhappily married pair of low-lifes (Elisha Cook Jr. and Marie Windsor) gives the dark-hearted thriller its funkiest moments. ••• “A SOMEWHAT GENTLE MAN” (2010, STRAND, UNRATED, $28): Even if he wasn’t newly released from prison, Ulrik (Stellan Skarsgard) is far from a good catch. He wears his thinning hair in a ponytail and never seems to change his clothes, yet women keep throwing themselves at him. That joke is just one of the delights of this subtle Scandinavian dramedy about a broken man looking for redemption

achiever role she’s played before. But there’s a new softness here, and their exchanges provide the most emotion. Bryce Dallas Howard, as Adam’s girlfriend, meanwhile, insists she’ll stick by him no matter what, but she’s clearly trying to convince herself she can. Howard’s in a tough spot here playing a woman of questionable decency, but she feels real. Just when “50/50” threatens to become too unbearably sad, though, a character will say or do just the right thing to break the tension. It doesn’t let up necessarily, but it does provide a balance. And it concludes in the most delicate way, with a moment that’s a lovely mix of romanticism and restraint. Perfect endings are hard to come by: “50/50” has one, and it wraps up one of the year’s best films.

wherever he can find it. It isn’t a flashy movie, but it’s a memorable one. ••• “PALE FLOWER” (1964, CRITERION, UNRATED, $30): Masahiro Shinoda’s yakuza film has been dubbed “a lost classic,” but it’s a smidge too self-consciously hip and ice-cold for that. Still, it’s worth a look thanks to an excellent performance by Ryo Ikebe as a just-out-ofprison hitman who enters a dangerous love affair with a thrill junkie.

It pours out thick and dark, an unusual sight for a “summer seasonal,” but Marshal Zhukov’s Imperial Stout is just that. “What they want you to do with a beer like this is age it,” Ted Kerpovich, owner of AuRants in Duryea, said. “So you get it in the summer, and by the time the weather turns cold, it’ll be perfect for drinking.” Zhukov’s is a Russian beer named after Georgy Zhukov, the most decorated general in the history of the Russian Empire, Soviet Union and Russian Federation. Those are some pretty big shoes for a beer to fill, but this fullbodied imperial stout measures up. “The way this beer pours is amazing,” Kerpovich said. “The head is small and dense, and the color is really great.” The stout is opaque, the head is a coffee color, and the taste has hints of dark chocolate, espresso and burnt roast. Though it pours thick, it doesn’t taste quite as thick as it looks. Though the beer tastes great cold, letting it warm up strengthens the sweetness. ••• MARSHAL ZHUKOV’S IMPERIAL STOUT Served at: AuRants, 941 Main St., Duryea Price: $20 bottle, $6.25 draft Brewed by: Cigar City Brewing, Tampa, Fla.

Restaurant Review

Russell’s does its roots proud S

ometimes, when you step into a legacy restaurant, you have to hope you’re going to love it. Who wants to take a swipe at a family-run establishment that traces back to a city’s heyday (all the way back, to the ’40s)? Fortunately, we don’t have to. We’ll just offer bits of constructive criticism about Russell’s, hidden away in an almost-forgotten corner of East Scranton. Anyone with Steamtown blood remember Preno’s, on Adams and Lackawanna, which finally closed in 1999? Russell’s carries on that grand, Parmesan and olive-oil heavy Italian tradition, under the tutelage of Russell Preno Jr. and Deborah and Russell Preno III. This classic NEPA restaurant serves hearty portions in the comfort of what resembles Grandma’s parlor room and draws heavily on time-tested Americanized Italian cuisine. You’ll find all the usual suspects, from fettucine Alfredo to baked ziti. The fare is far from experimental but certainly comfortable, tasty and filling. Draft beers are non-existent and bottles nonadventurous, with, oddly,

ood things are worth a wait. Tomorrow, Northeastern Pennsylvania band MiZ, made up of singer/guitarist Mike Mizwinski, guitarist Bret Alexander, keyboardist Freeman White and drummer A.J. Jump, will release its first full-length album since forming almost two years ago.

“We just kind of went with the philosophy that nothing good is ever rushed,” Jump said. “Mike had just about every song written before we started recording, but we went through line-up changes and kept tweaking the songs until we all felt they were perfect.” The album, dubbed “East Hope Avenue,” contains 10 tracks ranging from rock and folk to bluegrass and other genres. “I think the best way to describe our music to someone who hasn’t heard it before is ‘pure Americana,’” Mizwinski said. “We basically sound like The Black Crowes with a few bluegrass tunes peppered in,” Jump added. MiZ has opened for acts such as Derek Trucks, Bob Dylan, Shawn Colvin, Leon Russell, Blue Oyster Cult, Kenny Wayne

Remnants of the coal-mining industry, including this one titled ‘Timbering,’ are seen in Ed Dougert’s show ‘The Black Land,’ in place through Tuesday at CameraWork Gallery in downtown Scranton.

CELEBRITY Q&A BY R.D. HELDENFELS

JUMBLE

UNIVERSAL SUDOKU

BY MICHAEL ARGIRION & JEFF KNUREK

Cast changes at ‘The Talk’ Q. I would like to know why Leah Remini and Holly Robinson Peete will not be on the new season of “The Talk.” I thought they both brought a lot to the show and I am not sure if I will even watch this season now that they are not going to be on it. A. The series, which began its second season last week, is still working out what it thinks is the right combination of hosts, and the combination did not include Remini and Peete. Returning for the second season of “The Talk” are Sara Gilbert (who is also an executive producer), Julie Chen and Sharon Osbourne. Sheryl Underwood is joining them as a host. In addition, Kris Jenner will fill in for Osbourne for two weeks this fall. And Molly Shannon will appear as a guest host through September. You may recall that “The View,” which “The Talk” more than slightly resembles, has also made changes at times. The original setup involved three regulars — Meredith Vieira, Star Jones and Debbie Matenopoulos — along with Barbara Walters on some days and Joy Behar others.

HOROSCOPE BY HOLIDAY MATHIS

PAGE 14

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Regardless of

your starting position, you can create an excellent end result if you stay focused on what’s going right instead of on what’s going wrong. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You don’t have to push yourself to share with others, because your contributions flow effortlessly from you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t forget about that whim you had last week. It is still a good idea, and it is worth investigating further.

PREVIOUS DAY’S SOLUTION

CRYPTOQUOTE

ON THE WEB For more Sudoku go to www.timesleader.com

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will do

your part to protect, preserve, restore and manage your household. If everyone takes on as much responsibility as you do, your home life will be in tiptop shape. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll enjoy your time with loved ones. You’ve been rushing around so much that you may feel that you haven’t really seen them. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Today your tidbits come in the form of information and entertainment and won’t cost you much money to pick up and share. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Love isn’t going to sneak into your heart and surprise you, and you won’t suddenly discover love. Love is a state that you will cocreate with another person.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll pack

twice as many people and activities into the space of 24 hours, so the day will be broken up into short bursts of your attention. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Life will likely improve later, and yet it would be a shame to waste the moment anticipating better days when you could be engaged in the perfectly lovely circumstance happening right now. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As a paying customer, it will help you to understand your rights and powers. For instance, without the support of customers, a business will fail. You have certain rights that you should know and defend. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Each person

projects his or her own story onto the situation at hand. Therefore, you can safely assume that however people are reacting to you, it is not personal. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You sometimes assume that what you know is common knowledge, but it really isn’t. That is why it’s important that you teach the people around you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 30). You’ll fix a less than ideal part of your life, and your birthday is like the shot that starts the race. Pace yourself, though — the journey will be long, satisfying and productive provided you stay on course. Sagittarius and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 2, 14, 33 and 18.


Second chance at romance is fraught with consequences Dear Abby: I’m a 50-year-old female, married 26 years, with three grown children. When I was 16, I dated a guy, “Oliver,” I cared for very much. We got along, never argued and were very close. The attachment we had I have never experienced since. Months after we broke up, my mom told me that because we were of different races, she had called Oliver’s

DEAR ABBY ADVICE parents and told them to keep him away from me because we were getting too close. We both moved on, but through the years I have thought of him often. Sixteen months ago, I found him online. He lives a half-hour away, has two teenagers and is unhappy in his marriage. We spoke on the phone or

online for a year. Over the last few months we have been meeting at a nearby park. Our connection is still there. We are soul mates and no longer want to be without each other. And no, we have NOT had sex. My husband has been good to me. I love him, but I’m not “in love” with him. I am torn between staying with my husband to honor the commitment to my family, or following my heart with Oliver. I’m in love with him and don’t want to lose him a

FX ‘busts up’ horror genre The Associated Press BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — When Ryan Murphy was a child, his grandmother forced him to watch the daytime horror soap “Dark Shadows.” “She would make me sit through it to toughen me up,” he recalled. “And when I was bad, I had to watch ‘The Waltons.’ ” Murphy, whose credits include “Nip/Tuck” and “Glee,” is now the co-creator of an upcoming FX series, “American Horror Story.” The show centers on the Harmon family, which moves to Los Angeles from Boston in an attempt to start over after suffering domestic problems. But the house the Harmons move into is haunted. “American Horror Story” isn’t so much about horror as about marriage and infidelity, Murphy has said. But series co-creator Brad Falchuk said he and Murphy are obsessed with the horror genre. The goal here, Falchuk said, was to figure “how can we bust the genre up, while paying hom-

age to all the films that we love so much.” High on their list: “Don’t Look Now,” “The Shining” and “Jaws.” The series’ cast includes Oscar-winner Jessica Lange in her first regular TV series role, and, as the Harmons, Dylan McDermott and Connie Britton. Britton, who recently ended her run as a high-school football coach’s wife on the much-acclaimed drama “Friday Night Lights,” said she avoids horror films: They scare her too much. “I recently did the remake of ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ because I was going to face my fears,” she said. After shaking her head with dread, she sparked laughter from reporters when she said, “I should not be here.” On the other hand, she acknowledged she was looking for a different project when “American Horror Story” came along. “For me, it transcends horror, the way ‘Friday Night Lights’ transcended football.” “American Horror Story” premieres at 10 p.m. Wednesday on FX.
