Respectfully Yours: arguing football

Thursday, September 20, 2018 by JACQUELYN YOUST in Focus

Dear Jacquelyn,

Our house gets much harder to live in when the pro-football season rolls around. Between our children, my spouse, and me, there are die-hard fans of at least three different teams. It’s hard enough watching a game on TV when it’s my favorite and “just some other team,” but when it’s my team playing one of their teams, it gets loud and occasionally heated. How can we all get through the season without a referee in the family room?

Dear Reader,

The Family Project: the new man

Q. My 10-year-old daughter’s father and I never married, and he has not been very involved in her life. I have been seeing a very nice man, and I think it is getting serious. What is the best way to introduce her to this new relationship, especially when she is used to it being only the two of us?

Panelist Mike Daniels said that it was a great opportunity to have a conversation about needs and relationships: “Ten-year-olds know about dating, and if the mother hasn’t had a conversation about this the daughter is making it up in her own mind.”

Wednesday, September 19, 2018 by DAWN OUELLETTE in Focus

The 1989 film “Say Anything” set the standard for teenage romance comedies for decades to come. Every high school girl wished for her crush to stand outside her window, serenading her with a boom box. Every boy wanted to be Lloyd, who gets his dream girl.

John Cusack, who played Lloyd, the “every-boy” who gets the girl in “Say Anything,” has built a respected career as an actor, film producer and screenwriter with films such as “High Fidelity” (2000) “Being John Malkovich” (1999), “Grosse Pointe Blank” (1997) and “Serendipity” (2001).

‘Brigadoon’ magic for director Rody Gilkeson at Munopco

Wednesday, September 19, 2018 by The Press in Focus

By KATHY LAUER-WILLIAMS

Special to The Press

“Brigadoon” has a special place in Rody Gilkeson’s heart.

As a child, the 1954 movie adaption of the musical was often playing on television in his house.

“My mother used to love to watch movie musicals,” he says. “When it was on TV, she would sing along with the songs.”

Gilkeson says his mother was a big fan of actor Van Johnson, who played the best friend of Gene Kelly’s Tommy Albright in “Brigadoon,” so the lilting Scottish fantasy was one of her favorites.
