• Elizabethtown band includes gigs as acoustic duo

    Elizabethtown band Bury the Lede took its name from a journalistic term that refers to presenting secondary information in a story first while relating the most important points or facts later.

    Andrew Critchelow, guitarist and vocalist, said he decided on the name after seeing bands with names using the word “bury” in a more literal sense. He wanted to offer a different take and because he always had been interested in journalism, he found the phrase to fit the bill.

  • 'Makin' It' the best it can be

    A few weeks ago I found myself referencing “The Man From Atlantis,” a short-lived TV series from the ‘70s. The show featured Patrick Duffy as a guy who has special powers when in water.

    Those around my age bracket — I will be 54 in June — might remember it.

    I’m sorry.

    I never did watch that show, but I remember being aware of it. Even back then I thought it looked like a cancellation waiting to happen.

  • John Wayne rides into the State Theater

    When you think of westerns, one name in Hollywood rises above everyone else’s — the great John Wayne.

    He was the movie hero of his day featured in not only westerns but also many war films and other action flicks.

    I have a fondness for John Wayne films because they are a connection to my dad. He loved the Duke and I think he had seen all of his movies several times.
