  • 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.

  • '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.
