Water runs dry

Last week I spent some time at Ricketts Glen State Park and as always, it was beautiful. As I was there I couldn’t help but think about what’s going to happen to Lake Jean next year and how it will affect the park and its inhabitants. In late August the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources announced their plans to drain the lake in order to perform maintenance on the dam. The construction won’t start until 2015 but the plans have a lot of people concerned.

I’D TAP THAT: A fall classic

Description – Smuttynose Pumpkin Ale pours a slightly cloudy orange color reminiscent of a fall sunset with small amount of white head that disappear quickly and leave little to no lacing on the glass. The aroma is full of pumpkin spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves) but in a more reserved way as compared to other pumpkin beers, suggestions of hops and malt make their presence known as well. The taste follows the aroma, but is not as cloying as other pumpkin beers can beco...

Flannery’s ‘Under The Covers’ brings area musicians together

Songwriters can often be quite protective of their songs. They don’t like producers tweaking them too much, and sometimes, they don’t even like other artists to cover them, even if it’s being done as gesture of respect. When The Foo Fighters once covered a Prince song, the famed Purple One famously told them that they should stick to writing their own music.Ouch.

B-Movie Corner: The Monster Squad

The Monster Squad opened in theaters in 1987 to a moderate lukewarm reception. The film was wrongly classified by many as the Goonies meet Universal Monsters.
