These little piggies went ‘wee wee wee’ all the way home after loading up with goodies during last year’s ‘trunker’ treating event at Sweet Valley Church of Christ.


A costumed Halloweener grabs some treats while ‘trunker’ treating at the Sweet Valley Church of Christ’s safe trick-or-treat event last year.



athering your little goblins and ghouls to hit the neighborhood trick-or-treating circuit can be a daunting task. In the car, out of the car, walk a couple of blocks – and what if it’s raining? Good thing trick-or-treating alternatives have become trendier each year. Candy-hungry kiddos can now cruise through local grocery aisles on the trail of freebies or make the rounds in parking lots full of decorated cars to pick up treats from trunks. For the second year, the Sweet Valley Church of Christ is offering “trunker” treating, in which church members park cars in the parking lot and hand out treats. “Some cars are decorated very elaborately,” church secretary Cindy Lohman said. “The theme last year was ‘Life on the Farm.’ We had one couple come dressed as a bumblebee and farmer, and several of the cars had still-life arrangements for the kids to look at.” This year the theme will be Disney characters. “We’re really trying to get away from the bloody, gory, scary Halloween and make it fun and family-friendly,” Lohman said. Hayrides, games and a campfire on the church grounds are planned as well. Another atypical trick-or-treat hotspot might prove to be Price Chopper in Wyoming. “We’re setting up stations throughout every department, like produce and bakery, and the kids can stop at each for some treats,” said Shannon Charnetski, custom-

er-service manager. The first-of-its-kind event also will include a costume contest for the age groups of 8 to 12, 4 to 8 and up to 4 years. Also on the retail circuit, trick-or-treaters can spend part of Saturday visiting the Mall at Steamtown’s “Malloween” event in the center court or the fifth Annual Safe Halloween Trick or Treat at the Shoppes at Montage. Children are invited to gather at the Shoppes at Montage DSW store to begin a trick-or-treat route that will take them to nearly every store in the complex. Businesses will hand out wrapped candy and novelties, such as yo-yos and pencils. Then, if those bags still aren’t full, kids can go to college to major in candy. Misericordia University’s Trick-or-Treat Fair, which allows children to visit several

residence-life halls, will take place from 3-5 p.m. Sunday. “Events like this are great because it’s a one-stop shop,” Annmarie Narcum of the Residence Life Office said. “Everything is in one place, and it’s safe. There’s no traffic to deal with, and if the weather is bad it’s OK, because the activities are indoors.” “People can also trust it. They’re comfortable knowing exactly where the candy is coming from and that it’s OK.” And, finally, at least one local service group is capitalizing on Halloween as a way to give and get, but get for others, of course. The Wilkes-Barre Lions Club Safe Trickor-Treat is set for 6-9 p.m. Monday in Wilkes-Barre. Costumed guests can trade in an old pair of eyeglasses for a free hot dog.







Ringling Brothers go boom By MARY THERESE BIEBEL

When people say a chaotic scene is “like a circus,” Jason Gibson says, it just proves they’ve never worked under the big top. “It always cracks me up when they say ‘it’s a circus around here,’ as if that means disorganized. Everything (at a circus) is very regimented. It has to be,” said Gibson, who is production manager with Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s “Boom a Ring.” The highly organized show, which you can catch at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza today through Sunday, will include Thrillusionist David DaVinci, who appears to “go through a spinning fan without being chopped up” and whose wife, Jaime, trusts him enough to let him “put her in a box and squish her.” The acrobatic Salsations contribute a high-wire act, and the Caveagna Family clowns around. Hans Klose, meanwhile, shows off his “13 high-energy dogs,” and not to be outdone, a trainer named Mya prompts domestic cats to jump through hoops and from a high tower into a pillow. Another trainer, Cathy Carden,

has an act in which horses and camels work together. “It’s amazing to see Cathy. All it is is vocal commands. It’s great,” said Gibson, who estimates the camels might have been easier to train than the housecats because “most people’s cats don’t do anything for them.” If you’re bringing children to the circus, Gibson said, remember to arrive early for the pre-show, where they can meet circus folks and get free temporary tattoos and elephant conservation bracelets. “We have a center for elephant conservation,” Gibson said. “It’s a breeding place and retirement place. We’re doing the best we can to get them off the endangered-species list.”

Hazleton theater goes Bohemian with ‘Rent’ By MARY THERESE BIEBEL


The heat in Mimi’s apartment is turned off, so she heads upstairs to ask her neighbors for help. “You’re shivering,” Roger observes. “It’s nothing,” she sings to him, admitting she’s “a little weak on my feet.” “Would you light my candle?” When Roger repeatedly lights Mimi’s candle, at least until he runs out of matches, the vignette speaks to the heart of the Tony Award-winning musical “Rent,” which Pennsylvania Theatre for the Performing Arts will present tonight through Nov.13 at the J.J. Ferrara Center in Hazleton. “None of the characters feel sorry for themselves,” director Mike Marone said.

What: ‘Rent’ Who: Pennsylvania Theatre for the Performing Arts When: 7 tonight and tomorrow night and Nov. 3-5 and 11-12; 3 p.m. Sunday and Nov. 6 and Nov. 13. An all-you-can-eat buffet will be available 90 minutes before performances. Where: J.J. Ferrara Center, 212 West Broad St., Hazleton Reservations: 454-5451


Actors Emily Seratch, Sean Bromiley (on boxes) and Chris Laundry are part of the ensemble for ‘Rent.’

Despite hardship, illness and lack of money, these young Bohe-

mians of 1980s New York strive to cram as much poignancy as possible into the 525,600 minutes of the year. They will lose one of their circle of friends, Marone said, but “even though Angel dies a young death, he lives a fulfilled life. He always grabs every moment.”

In addition to directing, Marone plays documentary maker/ narrator Mark, who rooms with Roger on the top floor of a former factory also short on heat – unless you count the “illegal woodburning stove” or metal garbage can. Hinting at more serious problems, Mark reminds Roger, “Take your AZT.” While the characters’ dreams – songwriting, music, dance – aren’t exactly lucrative, Kirstin Evancho, 17, who portrays Mimi, said the story fuels her desire to study acting at Ithaca College and audition for plays in New York. “If I try and fail,” she said, “at least I tried.”

An old friend stays trusty Y

ou can’t help smiling from theminuteyouapproachthe back-door entrance to Dominick’s Café, a veritable institutionintheHudsonsectionofPlains Township. Festive, sometimes elaborate décor will often greet you any time of year, and Halloween is no exception.Don’tbesurprisedifaghostor a witch says hello, and don’t run in fear, or you’ll lose your chance to find out what keeps a place like this hopping for so long in any sort of weather, economic or otherwise. That has to be the dependable, consistently well-prepared food, which includes a signature, square, sweet style of pizza about which out-of-towners have been known to call home. Considering the quaint customs, such as draft beer served in juice glasses, and cozy ambience — simple, deco-style tables and multiple big-screen TVs still within the context of a white-tablecloth elegance — you can’t go wrong here as far as atmosphere. We’d heard buzz about wingsand-clams nights, 40 cents apiece on Wednesdays, and had to see and taste for ourselves. A dozen of each made the grade and then some. The steamers arrived as they should — steaming! — in a large net bag, and each one opened remarkably easily and went down just as easily. The drawn butter was appreciated, and fresh, sliced Italianbread,alwaysastapleatDominick’s, made the plate even tastier. Wings,aNEPAclassic,aresomething special here, especially at 40



Sure, pumpkin ales are plentiful this time of year, but Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales are “off the charts as far as pumpkin beer goes,” Goldstein’s Deli manager Rob Verosky said. When you first open La Parcela No. 1 Pumpkin Ale, “it has a sour smell, much like cider,” he said, and an unusual initial taste. “It’s very tart up front, but then the

At one time, the Dominick’s signature was the breaded wing, butitwastoughtotellwhetherthat style had been dropped in favor of a more traditionally crispy incarnation, awash in a lush sauce, ever-soslightly thick but not at all messy.

Still, the beer is smooth and drinkable. As it warms, Verosky said, the typical pumpkin-ale flavors become more evident. La Parcela pours a hazy orange color and has what Verosky refers to as “webby” lacing. Good lacing is something avid beer drinkers look for. Lacing refers to the lacy white ring that usually remains on the glass after the head dissipates. “Overall, it’s like you’re drinking

On top of that a large sandwich menu contains the popular House Special Marinated Delmonico Steak, which can be had with cheese and fried onions. The steak on this one is a bit tough, but that’s almost by design and not a problem. The particular cut, after all, is designed to go between bread. The only thing Dominick’s lacks is dessert, as in it’s not available. Neither is coffee. The regulars don’t seem to mind. When the food sings and the faces are this familiar, coffee and cake take a backseat. Or they come from somewhere else afterward. Assuming you have the room, which you really might not. Portions here are lush and generous, and we’d venture the proprietors know it. Which is maybe why they figure, hey, who needs dessert?

Movie Amy Step right up for skin-crawling tales of slashers, killer birds and major cockroaches. ••• “I SAW THE DEVIL” (2010, Magnolia, unrated, $28): You’ve never seen anything like this mind-altering Korean masterpiece about a young man named Soo-hyun (Lee Byung-Hun) who vows revenge against the serial killer (Choi MinSik) who slaughtered his fiancée. Often disgustingly lurid, it drips blood and gore but has something downright profound to say about the toxic effects of score-settling. ••• “ALFRED HITCHCOCK: THE ESSENTIALS COLLECTION” (2011, Universal, PG-R, $50): Nobody does white-knuckle terror like the Master of Suspense. This superb, five-disc set delivers two of Hitch’s scariest movies: “Psycho,” in

which Janet Leigh comes to regret her stay at the Bates Motel, and “The Birds,” a nature-gone-berserk shocker, as well the three top-notch thrillers “Rear Window,” “Vertigo” and “North By Northwest.” ••• “MIMIC: THE DIRECTOR’S CUT” (1997, Lionsgate, unrated, $20): Guillermo Del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) has tinkered with his giant cockroach movie, now on Bluray, trying to deepen the characters and underline the themes of science gone awry. It’s still a bit of a mess thanks to subplots about a creepy professor (F. Murray Abraham) and an autistic youngster. But the central story about a scientist (Mira Sorvino) trying to rid Manhattan of man-size bugs is as scary as it is icky. Amy Longsdorf also profiles celebrities for the Sunday Etc. section of The Times Leader.


New on DVD This week’s DVD releases are topped by films about people who fight injustice and evil. ••• “CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER,” GRADE C-MINUS: Chris Evans — the guy who put the heat in the Human Torch in the “Fantastic Four” movies — steps into the boots of the latest comic-bookinspired film champion. “ATTACK THE BLOCK,” GRADE B:

Director Joe Cornish offers a fresh look at the aliens-vs.-humans genre with this tale of what happens when a housing complex becomes the subject of an attack. Instead of the military, it’s a gang of South London teens who have to save the day. ••• Also new on DVD this week: “WINNIE THE POOH”: The gang from the Hundred Acre Wood goes on another adventure.

The outlaw cat is back By CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic

The “Shrek” franchise reboots anew here, if you’ll pardon the pun, with great energy, creativity and aplomb. This spin-off is actually a prequel, providing the origin story of the diminutive, swashbuckling kitty. At the start, Puss, voiced by Antonio Banderas, is an outlaw in his Spanish hometown. Flashbacks take us to an orphanage, where he was best friends with an ambitious Humpty Dumpty (Zach Galifianakis). The two dreamed of stealing the magic beans, climbing the beanstalk and getting rich off some golden eggs. Now, Humpty’s become obsessed and tries to enlist Puss as the operation’s brawn. Humpty’s partner in this caper is the dangerous master thief Kitty Softpaws, voiced with slinky seduction by Sal-

ma Hayek. They’re so good together after so long, the pairing just makes sense. Puss felt like the best part of the “Shrek” movies, but a little of him goes a long way. An entire movie of his own seems like a stretch, and really, he has trouble sustaining his shtick for 90 minutes. But for

lively entertainment, it works just fine, even in 3-D. He looks so soft and fluffy in his little leather boots, jaunty feathered hat and shiny sword, you’ll want to reach out and pet him, especially when he’s a tiny kitten working those big, green eyes for maximum manipulative effect.

Depp dabbles in ’60s journalism By JAKE COYLE AP Entertainment Writer


“The Rum Diary” is based on Hunter S. Thompson’s heavily autobiographical novel by the same name, which he wrote as a 22-year-old in the early 1960s. It wasn’t published until 1998. Since then, Thompson’s friend Johnny Depp has been trying to adapt it to the screen. Dedicated to Thompson, who died in 2005, this is a portrait of the Duke as a young journalist. The stand-in for Thompson, the young novelist-reporter Paul Kemp

What: “The Rum Diary” ★★ 1/2 Starring: Johnny Depp, Richard Jenkins, Michael Rispoli, Giovanni Ribisi, Aaron Eckhart and Amber Heard Directed by: Bruce Robinson Running time: 120 minutes Rated: R for language, brief drug use and sexuality

(Depp), is trying to find his voice: It’s the birth of Gonzo. Criminally exaggerated resume in hand, Kemp has gone to San Juan, Puerto Rico, to try his hand as a reporter at a

diminishing daily. He catches the attention of American businessman Sanderson (Aaron Eckhart), who’s trying to push through an enormous development of a nearby, pristine island that’s pushing locals out for American investors. Sanderson recruits Kemp to spin the story favorably in the Star. The picture of American corruption of Puerto Rico is compelling. Sanderson’s slick appeal tempts Kemp, but so does Sanderson’s fiancée Chenault (the stunning Amber Heard). It all builds to a moral crisis and, finally, an artistic tipping-point.

ALSO OPENING What: “In Time” Starring: Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy Directed by: Andrew Nicol, Genre: Crime/Sci-Fi/Thriller Plot summary: In the not-too-distant future, the aging gene has been switched off. To avoid overpopulation, time has become the currency and the way people pay for luxuries and necessities. The rich can live forever, while the rest try to negotiate for their immortality. A poor young man comes into a fortune of time, though too late to help his dying mother. He ends up on the run from a corrupt police force known as time keepers. Running time: 109 minutes Rated: PG-13 for violence, some sexuality, partial nudity and strong language Source: Internet Movie Database

Apocalyptic predictions have become commonplace, but for the guys of rock band Endworld the destruction already has happened. They’ve not only survived it but traveled from the desolate wasteland to play the very music that destroyed their former home. This, of course, is a carefully crafted back story that draws on horror author Stephen King’s “The Stand” and the “Dark Tower” series, but seeing Endworld in person might convince you they really are well-traveled apocalyptic survivors. The story goes like this: Years of terrible music bored and brainwashed the society Endworld once knew, causing nuclear wars that resulted in a worldwide wasteland. The guys fought to survive for several years before eventually coming upon a “thinny,” or weakened spot in reality where fabric between worlds has run thin (an invention of King’s), and they passed through it into the world we inhabit now. “We were all lovers of music before our world moved on, but in a post-apocalyptic scenario it’s just not practical to play shows,” band frontman Donner said. “Once we came here, we realized we can do music again, so we took the theme of the world ending and decided to make a tongue-andcheek band out of it.” Perhaps it’s fitting, then, that the group will perform Saturday night at an area haunted attraction, Reaper’s Revenge in Scott Township. Donner is joined by guitarist Doc, bassist Shiny and drummer Duke, all of Wilkes-Barre. Together they put “apocalyptic rock” twists on songs by the likes of Johnny Cash and even Lady Gaga, including a buzz-worthy cover of “Telephone.” Endworld also plays original tunes that deal with, naturally, the end of the world. The band’s high-energy live show is snarky and often off-color, fueled by political incorrectness and alcohol, at least in strictly adult settings. “In this world today, people are always wondering when it’s go-










‘Borgias’ coming back in 2012 Q. We started watching a miniseries of “The Borgias” on Showtime last season thinking it would be completed in one season. They stopped short of the whole story. Do you know if it is going to pick up again? A. Yes. The series starring Jeremy Irons will return to Showtime in 2012. Q. About two months ago I read a review of a movie about the man who was the body double of Saddam’s son and I have forgotten the name of it. Please tell me the name. A. That would be “The Devil’s Double,” a film starring Dominic Cooper. Reviews were mixed, and it was not widely shown; Box Office Mojo says it was in 89 theaters at its peak. But it will be on DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 22.



Q. What was the name of the show where Jonny Miller played a lawyer and heard George Michael’s music all the time? A. Jonny Lee Miller played a lawyer on the ABC drama “Eli Stone,” which aired for a total of 26 episodes in 2008 and 2009. Its two seasons have been released on DVD, and episodes are available online at

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You wouldn’t

mind hearing about how brilliant you are, and yet, strangely, those around you are not mentioning it today. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Choose your teachers carefully. Kindness and intelligence go hand in hand. Furthermore, anyone who is supposedly wise but doesn’t know how to love is a fraud. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). As you expand emotionally and physically, note that the very nature of stretching is that it goes beyond the usual range of motion.

ON THE WEB For more Sudoku go to

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve been

known to keep lists of important things, and yet lately you’ve fallen out of the habit. It’s true that you can remember quite a lot; however, you’ll feel much freer if you commit the items to paper instead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The outside world is cacophony. You have to close the doors to get some peace. Also, some people in your life are quite noisy, though you may not notice this until they leave. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You get the impression that the authority figures don’t know what’s going on, at least not completely. You have a better view of the day-to-day realities at the ground level, and there is opportunity in this position.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The solution to

today’s problems will be a synthesis of information from various people. Instead of asking “who” is right, you ask “what” is right. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s a reason why most organizations appoint one person to be the leader and not an entire group of people. Committees can be more trouble than they are worth. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You realize that you don’t have to own things in order to get good use out of them. You’ll do everything you need to do using what is borrowed or available to the public. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have a knack for turning a necessity into an object of loveliness. The total satisfac-

tion of seeing the manifestation of your idea will be well worth the effort you put forth in its development. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Justice never sleeps. It will be crucial to your own sleeping patterns that you sort out an unjust situation in your waking hours. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will inspire and empower the people around you. The best part is that you don’t have to be in charge of things for this dynamic to happen. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 28). This year you solve small problems, and big ones solve themselves. Invest in yourself and your talent in May. Aries and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 3, 22, 48 and 20.

Uncle’s ashes ‘temporarily’ housed in mom’s mausoleum Dear Abby: My 87-year-old mother recently discovered that the mausoleum site she had reserved for herself next to my father’s grave — and paid for when he died — was occupied by my uncle’s ashes and headstone. Mom had moved away 20 years ago and had not visited the cemetery in all that time. My cousin’s explanation, when confronted by my tearful mom, was that it was a “tem-

DEAR ABBY ADVICE porary solution” as the mausoleum was full at the time of my uncle’s death. They were planning to move him. Apparently, it has taken 14 years for them to get around to it. Mom had to send a notarized letter to the cemetery asking that my uncle’s remains be removed. My cousins saved $800 by using my mother’s prepaid site. Should Mom charge

them rent? — Bewildered in California Dear Bewildered: I don’t think your mother should ask your cousins for “rent,” but I do think your mother should contact the owners of the cemetery and ask what they plan to do to compensate her for her distress. I don’t understand how they could have allowed your uncle’s ashes to be placed in her reserved site. Dear Abby: My daughter “Joy”


is 19. She attended a small school with about 40 other students in her grade. She never had a boyfriend until the first week of college. The boy was a high school classmate of hers. They became engaged before he went off to boot camp. My husband and I are concerned because of Joy’s age and inexperience. Her fiance is OK, but we feel they are not for each other. My daughter has low self-esteem and is afraid she won’t find anyone else. How do we make Joy see that she’s too young to make such



an important decision? — Mama Knows Better in Ohio Dear Mama Knows Better: You can’t. Instead, encourage her to wait until her fiance returns home and she either has her college degree or is close to it before they tie the knot. 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.
