    Up to Speed with David Barr: Keselowski starts Chase strong

    Hello readers, Brad Keselowski dominated last week at Richmond to prove that he would be someone to watch in the Chase. In case anyone still doubted Keselowski as a serious title contender, Keselowski silenced his critics on Sunday. He opened the Chase with a win and automatically advanced to the next round in the Chase. It wasn’t easy as Keselowski started deep in the field and took advantage of hard racing between Kevin Harvick and rookie Kyle Larson to pass both of them with a...

    Reel experiences with Robert Humanick: Hear him roar: ‘Godzilla’ ‘14 raises the bar on Hollywood monsters

    The heck with beating around the bush: “Godzilla” was the best mainstream American release of the summer, with little serious competition. Those who complained that it didn’t have enough monster action weren’t by and large simply exhibiting impatience with the rare “popcorn” movie that actually cares about more than just giant things crashing into each other – they were clearly also not familiar with the dozens of Godzilla movies made in the last 60 years, many of which focus more on the...

    Small Beginnings: Some insight and history on the concept of vacations

    Did you know that according to a recent survey, forty-seven percent of Americans took at least one vacation in the past twelve months? That is nearly half the country and quite an intriguing statistic. In addition, three percent of the population travelled for leisure four or more times in the past twelve months.

    A Look Back in History: Early Americana weathervane was one of a kind

    A couple weeks back, I was pleased to write about the rare Americana weathervane on the Levan barn in the Oley Valley. But ironically, Clarence Shirk had a local farm auction with an identical weathervane for sale at an Emmaus farm auction Sept. 6.

    From Arthur’s Policy Desk: President Obama: It’s in our national interest to return to Iraq

    One of the first lessons in studying policy making is that a single event can change everything. Vice President Chaney and others in the Bush Administration wanted regime change in Iraq before they came to power but did not have the political means (opportunity) to implement that policy. September 11, 2001 created those means.

    Up to Speed with David Barr: Who will make it to the final four?

    Hello readers, Brad Keselowski took most of the drama out of Richmond, leading all but 17 of the 400 laps in route to an easy win. With the win, Keselowski picked up his series-high fourth win of the season and will enter the Chase as the top seed. This season the Chase will be different. After the first three races, the four lowest drivers will be eliminated from title contention. After another three races another four will be eliminated and so on and so forth until we have the...
