Home of Houdini Museum, 8 letters

03/22/2005 – By Matthew Kemeny STAFF WRITER

If you thought the city of Scranton has already gotten its fill of publicity as the setting for the soon-to-air sitcom “The Office,” think again.

“Scranton” or “S-C-R-A-N-T-O-N” was the answer to the 23 Across clue of the New York Times Sunday Crossword puzzle, titled, “Home of the Houdini Museum.

Officials at the museum, 1433 N. Main Ave., say since Monday they’ve gotten 50 to 60 calls — mostly from out-of-towners — about the clue.

“They want to know if that’s the right answer for the puzzle,” museum administrator Penny Wilkes said. “Then they say, ‘I didn’t know this was in Scranton. This is cool.'”

However, the museum did get one caller who admitted growing up in Scranton but still not knowing about the museum.

Before hanging up, some callers pledged to visit the museum, which honors famous magician Harry Houdini, Ms. Wilkes said.

Administrator John Bravo said he believes they will come.

“There’s great interest in Houdini,” he said. “We get people from all over the world.”

British pop-artist Sir Eduardo Paolozzi dies.

I should put up some more pictures or something, but I’m already behind schedule. I like Paolozzi’s work a lot. Sure, Pop, I suppose; but with some sort of barbaric raw edge to it.

Scranton Times Tribune – 04/26/2005 – Artist community plan rolls ahead

SCRANTON — Plans to develop a downtown artist community that will act as another economic development tool in the city’s revitalization are moving a step forward.

Scranton Tomorrow, city officials and Minneapolis-based Artspace Projects today will announce that Artspace has agreed to build the 35- to 40-unit community, said Paul Colaiezzi, Scranton Tomorrow executive director. Financing, location and other details will be developed with the assistance of committees drawn from local residents, he said.

The nonprofit Artspace, which has been developing affordable work and living spaces for artists across the country since 1979, completed market and feasibility studies for the project that showed interest from 174 artists within a 150-mile radius.

Mr. Colaiezzi said local developers were approached. While supportive, none would take on the project.

The Art of Andy Maluche: The cross we have to bear

We mingled with the crowd. They were the usual guys, a few Roman soldiers and a bunch of hooded guys flagellating themselves, the sort you see every day.

Everybody was just hanging around, slowly moving in the general direction we were heading to as well. The hooded guys swung a bunch of bamboo sticks attached to a rope around themselves. After a few minutes somebody with a wooden paddle in his hand started to hit some of those guys on the back with a couple of short jabs. Right away they started to bleed profusely. As I found out the paddle has nine very sharp metal disks attached to it. With blood running down their backs they resumed to whip themselves with those bamboo sticks attached to a rope and thus spreading the blood all over their backs and basically over everything else in their proximity. Like for example all over this friendly narrator who apparently went too close to get some details shots. It took me a while to realize that I was being redecorated with sprinkles of bright red blood. I looked like I had slaughtered a chicken by biting it’s head off. Blood was everywhere. Even coconuts, balloons and little, brightly colored chicks that were being sold at the side of the road were covered in it.

Between every picture I took I had to wipe blood off my lens.

Soon I learned to keep my distance. After all I am a professional and as such, a little friendly advice for you: If seeing blood makes you feel a little woozy, may I suggest an alternative choice of spending Good Friday like for example an egg hunt or something involving fluffy bunnies.

Andy lives in the Phillipines, where they celebrate Easter a bit differenty than they do in the U.S.

Or much of anywhere else, for that matter.

Because the — all which is on the table begins to address the big cost drivers. For example, how benefits are calculate, for example, is on the table; whether or not benefits rise based upon wage increases or price increases. There’s a series of parts of the formula that are being considered. And when you couple that, those different cost drivers, affecting those — changing those with personal accounts, the idea is to get what has been promised more likely to be — or closer delivered to what has been promised.

Does that make any sense to you? It’s kind of muddled. Look, there’s a series of things that cause the — like, for example, benefits are calculated based upon the increase of wages, as opposed to the increase of prices. Some have suggested that we calculate — the benefits will rise based upon inflation, as opposed to wage increases. There is a reform that would help solve the red if that were put into effect. In other words, how fast benefits grow, how fast the promised benefits grow, if those — if that growth is affected, it will help on the red.

Practice What You Preach PAC

Practice What You Preach believes that the institution of marriage is under assault in Texas from the twin epidemics of divorce and domestic violence. We are not a gay-rights group. We are mainstream, straight Texans who want the legislative leadership to stop making cheap political points by ignoring real problems.


It is a hypocritical charade to say that HJR 6, a constitution amendment to ban same-sex marriages already illegal under state law, would do anything to help marriage. The Texas legislature needs to practice what it preaches and focus on the real threats to marriage.
