Vic Clevenger The Cookin’ Comedian

As I sit here writing this, we received the news Dale Earnhardt, Jr’s airplane had crashed as he was traveling with his family to the race in Bristol, TN. Thankfully everyone escaped but Junior will be taking the weekend off to be with his family but it got me thinking about our sports heroes. When a friend posted about this event I responded,

HOLLYWOOD -- Disney was determined that “Avengers: Endgame” pass No. 2 “Titanic” ($2.18 billion) and No. 1 “Avatar” ($2.78 billion) to become the top-grossing film of all time. Disney rereleased “Endgame” over the Fourth of July weekend and kept it in theaters until it got what it wanted, a total gross of $2.79 billion. Ironically, Disney has a stake in all three films. It produced and released “Endgame,” acquired rights to “Avatar” when it bought 20th-Century Fox, and gained the international rights to “Titanic” in the Fox buy. Disney also now owns the “Avatar” sequels 2-4, with “Avatar 2” due in December 2021. Disney is taking the Marvel Universe in new directions. The success of “Captain Marvel,” with “Room” Oscar-winner Brie Larson, who rode the title character (the first time a woman) to a $1.1 billion gross, has now led to another Oscar-winning actress, Natalie Portman (“Black Swan”), becoming the first female “Thor” in “Thor 4: Love and Thunder.” Where this leaves Chris Hemsworth is anyone’s guess. But fear not, Benedict Cumberbatch will be back as “Doctor Strange” in “Multiverse of Madness.” Brie Larson will undoubtedly be back as “Captain Marvel,” but first she stars in “Just Mercy,” with Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx, for a Christmas Day release. *** Tom Cruise will release “Mission Impossible VII” in 2021 (when he’s 59) and “Mission Impossible VIII” in 2022” (when he’s 60). He was injured doing his own stunts in the last “Mission Impossible.” Cruise may be trying to prove he’s still got what it takes to be an action star, but some of us remember his

Heroes and Throwdowns

“It was like I had heard the news of a family member” but why did I feel this way? He’s never attended a Clevenger family reunion. Shoot, I’ve never even met him at a racetrack, but I feel like I know him. He was my racing hero. I have Dale Jr. hats, shirts and even a cooler from his days of driving the number 8 car, the beginning. When he retired, I was worried about

Marvel Studios

who I would follow now, who would be my hero? How did we do it when Terry Bradshaw retired? Walter Peyton? What are Patriot fans going to do when Tom Brady trades in his number 12 for just a coat and tie for TV appearances as a commentator? I have a friend who, when Jeff Gordon retired, totally stopped watching NASCAR. But what would our heroes think if we give up on the sport they’ve given their life to, simply because they are no longer a part of it? As we wind down the NASCAR season and ramp up football season, I guess the question we need to ask is, “Do we still love the sport in which we found our hero?” When I was a kid I wouldn’t sit and watch a full game on TV – they were boring. What did my dad see in this Sunday afternoon ritual of some guys moving around for a minute and then standing around doing nothing for, what seemed, to me, hours, so I went outside to play, football. Another memory of those days, is, my dad never owned

Brie Larson in “Captain Marvel”

Oscar-nominated acting in “Jerry Maguire” (1996), the kind of action he should now be pursuing. *** What does NBC/Universal suddenly have against Steve Harvey? First it brushed aside his hit daytime show “Steve” in favor of a new talk show with Kelly Clarkson. Then a day later we learned it again brushed him aside from “Little Big Shots,” the show he and Ellen DeGeneres created, in favor of Melissa McCarthy. Steve’s response? “My show is the only show in the last seven years in syndication that has stuck.” He still has “Celebrity Family Feud” on ABC, “Family Feud” in syndication, “The Steve Harvey Radio Show” and the return of “Showtime at the Apollo.” NBC/Universal may find a itself in trouble when execs try to renegotiate with his “Little Big Shots” co-creator Ellen DeGeneres, whose show is up in mid2020. As a writer, his use of double negatives made me cringe, but his wisdom and humor is so deep, one wonders if Kelly Clarkson can ever make us laugh as he does. (c) 2019 King Features Synd., Inc.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Despite your Aries penchant for wanting to tackle a problem head-on, you might want to take a little more time to see how a current situation develops. It could surprise you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Taking on the role of peacemaker in a disruptive environment is a challenge. But you can do it. Just continue to have the same faith in yourself that so many others have in you. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although your work schedule keeps you busy, you should make time to start preparing for that important upcoming family event you’ll want to celebrate in a special way. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Home is where the Moon Child wants to be early in the week. But by week’s end, a chance to travel raises her or his excitement level, and that of the lucky person who gets to go along. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Be careful not to be a copycat when dealing with someone who uses unfair or even unkind methods to reach a goal.

a jersey of a gridiron great, but he still watched almost every week including playoffs and the Super Bowl. But why? The simple answer, which really is the only answer, he just loved the weekly throwdown. Sure, he had a favorite team (Cincinnati Bengals) and knew the names of some of the major players, but more importantly, he just loved to watch the game, no matter who played. I remember watching Monday Night Football when the Redskins and the Giants (not the Bengals) played where Joe Theismann suffered a broken leg. But why were we watching since neither team was a favorite? Because the sport was the favorite not the players. We love our heroes and our favorite sports love that fact because it means, we’ll not only tune in each week to watch them, but we’ll also spend a bunch of money on merchandise. As NFL kicks off September 5th some of our heroes have retired or due to youth fading away, will find themselves on the bench playing second string. Will

As always, do the right thing the right way, and you’ll win in the end. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) An offer could have many good things attached to it that are not apparent at first glance, including a chance to move into another career area. You might want to check out its possibilities. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) With responsibilities surging both in the workplace and in the home, it’s important to prioritize how you deal with them. Be patient. Pressures will begin to ease starting early next week. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A positive reaction to a suggestion could indicate that you’re on track for getting your message to the right people. Devote the weekend to catching up with the special people in your life. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A new attitude from those in charge could make things difficult for you unless you can accept

Vic Clevenger you still watch knowing your favorite hero won’t be there any longer? I think you will, because I think you’re like me and love the sport above all else. Knowing players come and players go, you’re also content to remind everyone of watching the greats back in the day. How do I know this? Well, first of all, you’re reading this magazine and secondly, reading this magazine tells me you enjoy everything about the game of football (as well as other sports). the changes without feeling as if you’re being pressured into doing so. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Family matters once again dominate much of the week. But don’t neglect your workplace duties while you deal with them. An offer to help could come from a surprising source. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A difficult workplace situation begins to ease, but there still are matters that need to be dealt with before it’s fully resolved. There’s also a more positive turn in domestic relationships. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Don’t let yourself be rushed into making a decision about an intriguing financial arrangement. Asking questions and checking it out now could pay off in a big way later on. BORN THIS WEEK: You might have a tendency to be more than a bit judgmental, but others understand it comes from a warm, loving heart. (c) 2019 King Features Synd., Inc.

Poetry “You’re Feeling Nature” BY JAMES OLIVER RYAN

A man’s mind Within his life Rises up with consciousness To objects with prominence--that surround him That which is found is touched by emotions, Emotions are the foundation for feelings Fear, anger, surprise, shame, sadness, and Happiness---emotions---they are revealing Complex interactions bringing about certain feelings, Feelings make ones body sense

a certain way A body state Feelings that touch the nerves to what we are exposed Feelings that make us innovators Brain, mind, and body---feelings as caretakers, Ride the cerebral waves--where inspiration flows From your head down to your toes Feelings they put you in the know With your feeling nature Remember---you are a part of the stars that glow

Fall BY Lucia Johnson

This is a gorgeous season, With colors all around. A ride in the country will prove it, So much beauty even in town. The trees turn many shades, And the bushes sparkle too. Wild growth in the country, Always a different hue. It never ceases to amaze me, How nature paints the scene, From red to orange to yellow, And many degrees of green. The lawns around our neighborhood, Still look plush and bright and pretty, While the forests have their own life, They are different from the city.

No need to mow the lawn, For a while we’ll get a break So enjoy the pictures that you see, Use your eyes and all they can take. Stop and smell the roses, That in the summer you can do, But in the Fall soak it all in, There are sights and not just a few. The green leaves of the maple, Put on colorful dress, The sumacs once again turn red, Burning bushes are no less. He created all the world To love and have it all, So thank Him for His works, And enjoy the season of Fall

Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown – Truth and Lies ---Bill Baker

For you who believe music today just doesn’t compare to the albums you listened to when you were growing up – Wake Up!! There is more great music to listen today than ever before. Not to mentioned you don’t even have to pay for it. Prime example is the new album from Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown Truth and Lies on Snakefarm Records. The band’s new studio album was preceded by the self-titled Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown (2017) and their full-length debut Wild Child (2013). Three EP’s also have been released along the way - The Wayside (2015) From the Sandcastle and My Radio (2011). In 2006 Tyler Bryant, at the age of 15 formed the Tyler Bryant Band. The band started touring in his home state of Texas, which paved the way for playing shows in Europe by the end of the year. Tyler was presented with the Robert Johnson Gibson New Generation Award for aspiring young guitar players the same year. In 2007 he won the Ernie Ball’s first “Play Crossroads Competition, which got him a spot performing on Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago. Vince Gill, when first seeing Tyler play guitar he was quoted as saying: “To be 18 and play like this kid is the rarest of the rare. Hands down a future guitar god.” Bryant moved to Nashville at 17, forming what is now Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown. Tyler Bryant on lead vocals and guitar / Caleb Crosby on drums / Noah Denny on bass and vocals, and Graham Whitford (son of Aerosmith’s Brad Whitford) on rhythm, lead guitar and backing vocals. They form an incredibly powerful unit that isn’t constrained by the narrow view that defines rock and roll. The Shakedown have opened up for Guns N Roses and ACDC, with endorsements from Jeff Beck and Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top. The new release Truth and Lies takes you on a musical journey with a defining hard rock sound, rocking blues and a bit of a southern influence thrown in. The album, which only took two weeks to record, opens with heavy guitar riffing of Shock & Awe. This song rocks with a nostalgic nod to Black Sabbath’s early recordings. On To The Next follows with a hypnotic

straight ahead rocker. Shape I’m In slows the pace with emotional, reflective lyrics, complimented with a haunting lead guitar. Eye To Eye features the back and forth excellent lead guitar work of Bryant and Whitford. There is not a song I don’t like on this 13-song endeavor. Bryant’s soulful voice is highlighted on the slower tracks like

the brooding dark melody of Judgement Day, Trouble, Out There and Couldn’t See The Fire, to the rocking anthems of Panic Button, Cry Wolf and Ride. Tyler Bryant’s name may be out front, his lyrics definitely hold center stage, but this is very much a band. All the musicians are excellent and play as one. It was hard to pick a favorite on

Truth and Lies but Drive Me Mad reminded me of those early Aerosmith days with a driving bass line, kick ass drums, high intensity guitars and an in your face strong vocal performance. I was fortunate to photograph Tyler Bryant and The Shakedown a few years ago in Sacketts Harbor, NY. I had never heard of them and I

was completely blown away. If you get a chance go see this band. Check out the latest from Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown – Truth and Lies. As with all my reviews - if you like what I like, you will either stream the latest from Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown or end up buying the new cd – Truth and Lies.

Just How Hot Can a Hot Car Get?

DEAR PAW’S CORNER: This morning, I was walking into the drugstore when I heard a small dog frantically barking from a nearby

car. I looked in the window and saw a toy poodle rushing back and forth along the back seat, putting her paws on the closed windows and barking at everyone passing by. The car was not running, so no air conditioning, though it was parked in a shady spot. I rushed inside the store and called for the manager, who contacted the police. They immediately opened the car and rescued the little dog, who was panting heavily. Please let your readers know that leaving your pet

inside a locked car, even in the shade, can be a death sentence! -- Relieved Pet Mom in Maine DEAR RELIEVED: I’m glad this story had a happy ending! Folks, even on a pleasant day with temperatures in the mid-70s, the interior of a car can heat up to life-threatening levels of more than 100 F. That’s even on a cloudy day, or when parked in a shady spot.

Even if you leave your pet inside a locked, running car with the air conditioning on, that’s still not acceptable. Your pet will be very anxious without you present, and anything might happen while you’re away. If you want to take your pet with you, make sure the places you go will welcome pets inside. (Your pet should be well-trained and responsive to your commands, and not

aggressive to other dogs.) Or, have a friend come along and sit in the running car with your dog or walk them in a nearby grassy area or park while you shop. Otherwise, leave pets at home. The risk is not worth it. Send your questions, comments or tips to ask@ (c) 2019 King Features Synd., Inc.

Folding Fan

A quick look online for a collectible old fan will show electric fans made since the late 1800s. But some collectors want even older fans, the handheld folding fans that were being made by the 1700s. These fans were more than a fashion accessory -- they were important indicators of the user’s status and good taste. There was even a “language of love” using the fan that let a lady flirt, ask men to come by to chat, or even hit an irritating person. Folding fans were made with sticks of bone, ivory, bamboo, wood, tortoiseshell, motherof-pearl, lacquer, metal or more recently, plastic. They held a decorated cover of silk, paper, leather or canvas. Some had added jewels and artist-drawn oil or watercolor paintings. A talented fan painter was as important as an artist who created portraits or landscapes. Collectors in the 1950s searched for period fans and often mounted them in half-circle frames. Expensive fans of the past are hard to find in good condition. This painted paper fan with carved gilt sticks decorated with mother-of-pearl was offered for sale at a Neal auction. *** My mother has my grandparents’ desk. It is kneehole style, with a curvy front, two drawers on each side and a drawer in the middle. The label on the back reads “Cherry and Maple/Atlas Furniture Co., Jamestown, New York.” What is it worth? Atlas Furniture Co. was formed in 1883 as the Swedish Furniture Co. by Swedish immigrants Lawrence Erickson and Gustave Holmberg in Jamestown. The name was changed to Atlas in 1871. Atlas advertised as “Manufacturers of Bedroom Furniture,” making “better” grades of bedroom furniture, including dressers, chiffoniers and toilet tables from walnut, mahogany and other woods. Atlas closed in 1941. Your desk would sell for $50 to $100. ***

Nine frolicking men and women are pictured on the pleated paper of this antique fan. It was offered for sale last year at a Neal auction.


I found 10 unused World War I postcards. The title of one of the postcards is “Les Americains au Camp d’Auvours.” I’ve spent hours online and can’t find anything similar. Are they worth anything? A military camp has been located at Champagne, France, since the 1870s. Allied troops used the camp as a rear base during World War I. A series of postcards was made picturing American troops at the camp and most sell online for under $5.
