Movie Review: One of a kindness

Friday, January 3, 2020 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

“A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood” is an odd little film.

On the one hand, it’s been perceived as a biopic of Latrobe, Westmoreland County, native Fred Rogers (1928 - 2003), host of “Mister Rogers Neighborhood” (1968 - 2001), produced by WQED, Pittsburgh, and telecast on Public Broadcasting Television stations.

On the other hand, the film is not a Fred Rogers biopic.

Movie Review: ‘Jumanji’: Fun run

Friday, January 3, 2020 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

Some movies are lifted by low expectations.

Having seen a movie where you’re not expecting much, you sometimes end up with higher results.

That’s what happened for me with “Jumanji: The Next Level.”

Once one gets past the illogical legerdemain of the movie’s premise, which I won’t geek out on here, “Jumanji” provides an entertaining, frequently humorous and often wild ride.

Healthy Geezer: Topics: CPR, Kegels, heart attack signs

Q. How do I go about learning CPR?

If you would like to learn CPR, contact the American Heart Association: americanheart.org; 1-877-AHA-4CPR.

Another CPR resource is the American Red Cross: redcross.org.

You can try a local hospital.

CPR, or Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation, employs chest compression and mouth-to-mouth breathing to treat cardiac arrest, heart attack, drowning and electrocution.

CPR can keep some blood flowing to the brain and heart during an emergency.

Growing Green: Try indoor gardening

Friday, January 3, 2020 by LEHIGH COUNTY EXTENSION in Focus

The weather may be cold, but your green thumb is still itching.

What can you do? You can still do some gardening, even at this time of the year: indoor gardening.

We see amaryllis being sold every fall in the local grocery store or garden center. They look great, but are they easy to grow? As with any plant, give it the right conditions and some TLC and you’ll reap the rewards.

Movie Review: Eastwood’s real ‘Jewell’

Friday, January 3, 2020 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

“Richard Jewell’ is another brilliant film from director Clint Eastwood.

The film is based on the true story about security guard Richard Jewell, who became a “person of interest,” but was never charged in the bombing of Centennial Olympic Park during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Ga. The explosion is said to have killed two persons (one from a heart attack) and injured 111.

Jewell discovered the bomb before it detonated and with other officials cleared most of the spectators out of the park, saving the lives of thousands.

Respectfully Yours: Make new year’s resolutions all year

Friday, January 3, 2020 by JACQUELYN YOUST in Focus

Dear Jacquelyn,

I often overhear people discussing what their goals are for the New Year. As it often happens, I will be asked, “What is your New Year’s resolution?” I’m not a big fan of announcing my New Year’s resolutions. How can I politely answer the question?

Dear Reader,

There are two types of resolution makers: people who make their resolutions public and those that keep them private.

If you need social support and want to talk about your goals, go right ahead.

But deciding to remain private about your goals is fine, too.
