Cathy Rigby offered Scranton an energetic, amusing “Peter Pan” on Friday night, and the audience gladly took her up on it. Barrie’s classic tale, presented this weekend by Broadway Theatre League of Northeastern Pennsylvania at Scranton Cultural Center at The Masonic Temple.

As always, Peter whisks away the three Darling children from their London home to Neverland, where they encounter the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily, the infamous Captain Hook and more. The pirates are a colorful, funny bunch and Hook offered a great mix of humor and villainy. He made for an imposing figure but also a sympathetic one, ready to fight and defeat Peter but forever fearful of the crocodile that took his hand and is hungry for more.

But as delightful as Hook and the rest of the crew were, no one could ever steal the show from Ms. Rigby. She has been playing the role for decades, including a Broadway stint in the early 1990s that garnered her a Tony award nomination for her efforts and national tours that brought her to Scranton.

“Peter Pan” is a story about a boy who won’t grow up,
uggs bailey Rigby ageless as boy who wouldn't grow up
and Ms. Rigby, who turned 60 in December, seems ageless in the role. The former gymnast’s athleticism seemed as strong as ever as she did flips and handstands in the air, on the ground, on and off wires, and the audience welcomed her with a strong round of applause as she flew high above the boards, sprinkling fairy dust as she went.

When she and the Darling children took to the sky for the song “I’m Flying” and the journey to Neverland, Ms. Rigby’s antics reached dizzying new heights, much to the delight of the crowd. It would be difficult to watch such a sequence and not break into a smile.

The acrobatic skills continued with Tiger Lily, whose dancing was particularly impressive, and the numerous children in the crowd seemed to get a kick out of the action and colorful characters. Also standouts were the sets, intricate pieces that captured the whimsy and magic of the story from the second the curtain rose on the lavish Victorian nursery, the wilds of Neverland and Hook’s imposing ship.

“Peter Pan” is more of an adventure than anything, and while it boasts enjoyable songs like “Neverland” and “Ugg a Wugg,
uggs bailey Rigby ageless as boy who wouldn't grow up
” it’s the flying and action that audiences will remember.

Broadway Theatre League will present four more performances of “Peter Pan” this weekend at the cultural center. Just make sure you stick around through the curtain call you won’t want to miss Ms. Rigby’s last flight.

uggs womens boots Rick Warren returns to the spotlight

baby ugg boots uk Rick Warren returns to the spotlight

Programming note: Rick and Kay Warren sit down exclusively with CNN’s Piers Morgan to talk about the death of their son and their new mission to raise awareness about mental illness.

He has shared spiritual insights on social media, returned to the pulpit to preach about overcoming obstacles and taken his purpose driven message to Rwanda, a nation still reeling from a bloody genocide.

That changed when Warren and his wife Kay sat for an extended interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan.

In a brief clip released on Monday, Morgan and Warren discussed gun violence, including Monday shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington.

MORE ON CNN: first thing I did was get down on my knees and pray for those families and Kay Warren have been outspoken about the plague of gun violence in the United States, especially since their son, Matthew, took his own life in April afterwhat the family call a lifelong struggle with mental illness.

“In spite of America’s best doctors, meds, counselors, and prayers for healing, the torture of mental illness never subsided,” Warren wrote to staffers at Saddleback Church, his megachurch in Orange County, California.

Then Warren,
uggs womens boots Rick Warren returns to the spotlight
one of the country most visible spiritual leaders, disappeared from public view. But not quite.

Not even grief could silence Warren, a gregarious man with an apparent thirst for sharing his spiritual insights.

Away from his pulpit, the preacher voiced his anguish and his insights in a stream of Twitter messages and Facebook posts.

“We intend to spend the rest of our lives comforting others with the same comfort we have been given from God, through your prayers,” Warren told the large crowds who came to see him preach.

He also credited his other children, Amy and Joshua, with helping his family through its darkest days.

“When all this happened, Amy looked at me and said, ‘Dad, Satan picked the wrong family to pick on. He’s going to lose so badly because of the platform God has given to our family.’ ”

Last week Warren wrapped up a trip to Rwanda, a country he has focused on since 2005, when its government invited the pastor to help Rwandans recover from its vicious genocide in 1994, which claimed as many as 1,000,

consulate attack in Libya. mission in Benghazi.

She asked for the meeting with Republican Sens. John McCain, Kelly Ayotte and Lindsey Graham after their sharp criticism of her response to the Benghazi attack. The Republican senators have maintained that they are concerned about her explanation on what caused the attack. demonstration led to the violence, an assertion later disproved by intelligence officials and reports from the ground.

During the morning meeting Tuesday, acting CIA Director Michael Morell said the FBI removed references to al Qaeda being behind the attack to prevent compromising an ongoing investigation. intelligence official confirmed that the CIA made the changes.

were several valid intelligence and investigatory reasons why they were changed, the official said. information about individuals linked to al Qaeda was derived from classified sources, and could not be corroborated at the unclassified level; the links were tenuous and therefore it made sense to be cautious before naming perpetrators. addition, the official said, the investigation was still in the preliminary stage. intelligence official defended the administration, saying the talking points were never meant to be permanent.

talking points were written, upon request, so members of Congress and senior officials could say something preliminary and unclassified about the attacks, if needed, the official said.

were never meant to be definitive and, in fact, noted that the assessment may change. The points clearly reflect the early indications of extremist involvement in a direct assault. It wasn until after they were used in public that analysts reconciled contradictory information about how the assault began. . There was absolutely no intent to misinform. to reporters after the morning meeting, McCain and his fellow Republican lawmakers said they were by the administration continued inability to answer even the most basic questions about the attack and how the White House responded.

Republican lawmakers said their Tuesday meeting with Rice and the acting CIA director left them with more unanswered questions about her remarks following attack.

was clear that the information that she gave the American people was incorrect when she said that it was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video,

McCain said. was compelling evidence at the time that was certainly not the case, including statements by Libyans as well as other Americans who are fully aware that people don bring mortars and rocket propelled grenades to a spontaneous demonstration. said he was disturbed now than I was before that 16 September explanation given by Rice during a series of appearances on Sunday political talk shows

think it does not do justice to the reality at the time and in hindsight was clearly completely wrong. But here the key. In real time, it was a statement disconnected from reality, the South Carolina Republican said. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three others.

Opinion: Republican obsession with Benghazi makes no sense

Some Republicans have said they would block the nomination of Rice if President Barack Obama chooses her to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who has said she will leave her post when a replacement is ready.

She has not been offered Clinton position, but is suspected to top the list of possible successors. At a news conference after his re election, Obama called Republicans criticism of Rice and said the critics should go after him instead.

Rice said neither she nor the administration intended to mislead and they updated Americans as the information evolved.

Morell took the reins of the spy agency two weeks ago after the sudden resignation of director David Petraeus amid an extramarital affair.

Later this week, Rice will meet with Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the top Republican on the homeland security committee, which is investigating the Benghazi attack. Collins has not been as critical of Rice as the three senators, but has said Rice needs to explain what happened.

A spokesman for the director of National Intelligence has said that those talking points were prepared by the intelligence community, and not modified by other governmental agencies.

ugg lace up boots reveals her inspiration

Young magician Issy Simpson has revealed her triumphant appearance on Britains Got Talent was inspired by her grandfather, amid claims his role as an advisor on the show helped secure her place in the final.

The eight year old rendered show judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams speechless with a highly accomplished routine on Tuesday evening.

And appearing on Wednesdays edition of This Morning as she looks ahead to the chance of performing at the Royal Variety Performance, she admitted seeking inspiration from a number of sources including her grandfather Russ Stevens, also a magician.

Scroll down for video

Let’s talk:I had a Marvins Magic set and I loved Harry Potter, and I watched my granddad do tricks as well, she told hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford

Issy joined fellow magician Matt Edwards, who will both go through to Sunday’s final after beating seven other acts, including third place contestants, contemporary dance act Grace and Ali.

The youngster had to be comforted by her mother on the stage as it all got too much for her when she was told by hosts Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly that she had received the most public votes on the night.

Issy was no doubt delighted by the praise after she was caught at the centre of fix claims when it emerged her grandfather had previously been a magic coach on the ITV show.

Speaking to the Mail On Sunday the weekend before the live shows, Issy, from Blackpool, admitted she was ‘a bit nervous’ about the prospect of impressing the judges and millions watching at home in the two and a half minutes she had been allotted.

But she admitted: ‘I’ve been practising on my grandpa,’ professional magician Russ Stevens. It was Russ who got Issy interested in conjuring a year ago after buying her a Marvin’s Magic set and who has helped her hone her skills.

‘We started with a few tricks, like some card tricks, that were hard then but easy for me now,’ she says.

However Russ’s involvement caused more than a touch of controversy after it emerged he had once worked as a consultant magician on BGT.

But a spokesman for the show insists that Issy ‘went through the exact same process as any other act and was judged on her performance on the day’.

A source told MailOnline at the time of the fix claims that Issy very ‘upset’, explaining: ‘She idolizes her granddad and has always been inspired by him.’

If the word comes to mind when you think of recent teenage girl fashion, you not alone. Tight tops have been paired with ultra low rise pants, and shocking styles once seen on the red carpets of Hollywood could be seen in some classrooms last year.

Well, brace yourselves. The model currently gracing the main page of the Gap Web site wears an outfit that truly shocking.

The model is donning a blazer and a brooch. She probably has a belly button, but you can see it. Her jeans and her shirt actually overlap, so it safe to assume she can bend over without causing a traffic accident.

According to the fashion industry, what old is new again. More conservative styles, including tweed suits, longer shirts and gasp pearls, are back. That welcome news to parents and school officials.

that things will be more conservative is a good thing, said East Valley School District Assistant Superintendent of Operations Debra Howard. been difficult for the girls, especially, to find clothes that would pass (school dress codes). Valley middle school students were so desperate last year, they wrote letters as part of a class assignment asking store managers to stock more conservative styles, she said.

Local school districts have dress codes that prohibit students from wearing clothes that are offensive or distract other students. For example, students can wear T shirts with alcohol logos or gang messages.

In recent years, Spokane school administrators have handled more cases where revealing clothes were a distraction, and schools have adopted individual policies about the lengths of skirts, the widths of sleeves and other specific restrictions, District 81 Student Services Coordinator Wendy Bleecker said.

Bleecker said it seems unfair, but often it girls caught violating the dress code. The issue is usually resolved by explaining to the students why their outfits are inappropriate and then handing them a T shirt to cover up, she said.

they don quite understand, I ask would you feel if Mr. so and so was wearing a belly shirt? Bleecker said. it like, I get it.

Rogers High School in Spokane adopted a new dress code last year and spent time educating students about the reasoning behind it.

In the Coeur d School District, one school found the need to ban bathing suits and dog collars in its dress code.

Brianna Hemphill, assistant manager at Wet Seal, known for its trendy clothes, in the Spokane Valley Mall, said it will be easier to find clothes that comply with the dress codes this year.

going back to more of a style, more classic, she said. seen so much of the Paris Hilton style. said girls are embracing the new old look and parents are She said her younger sister, a student in the Central Valley School District, appreciates the styles, too, because the schools strictly enforce the rules.

Among the happy moms is Shannon Phillips, 45, who almost cheered when a reporter told her the latest fashion news.

Madison and her friend Jillian Pflugrath, also 13, rested in the food court at the Valley mall this week with a few shopping bags scattered on their table. They said they still like short skirts, but they pair them with long sleeve, layered tops.

In case girls need more evidence to be convinced, look to magazines like Seventeen, YM and Cosmo Girl. They suggesting teens copy the styles of stars like Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and other typically classical dressers.

Don set your hopes too high, though. Although the look is showing up at Wet Seal, Nordstrom, the Gap and other stores, new styles can take a long time to reach everyone in Spokane. Heck, last year East Coast obsession with Ugg boots hardly made it here before the fuzzy shoes were declared outdated.

At the Bon Macy Valley store, the young women section only received a few of the classic style pieces, sales associate Brandy Fleck said.

A nearly century old hunting boot is catching on with a younger generation that sees the utilitarian footwear as hip. Another reason is new styles, including something Leon Leonwood Bean surely never envisioned in 1912: bright blue and pink leather, new for spring.

At Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Zina Huxley Reicher of New York wears her dark brown, shearling lined boots nearly every day, with a skirt or jeans. She has only one pair, but some classmates have several.

“They are very practical, but they’ve also become a fashion trend,” she said. Bean senior manager for manufacturing in Brunswick. Next year, demand is projected to reach 500,

000.

Defying a trend toward offshore production, the outdoors retailer is adding 125 full time employees to its Maine based manufacturing operation to keep pace with orders.

The well known boot appears to be benefiting from a retro trend, whether it’s penny loafers or the Gap’s 1969 series blue jeans, said Candace Corlett, president of WSL Strategic Retail in New York.

“It’s sort of like the Coca Cola bottle or the sleek silver lines of Apple. It’s iconic. And when you have that kind of icon, you leverage it,” Corlett said. Bean’s icon from decades ago is striking an emotional chord with people who’re yearning for the good old days.”

Another factor that could be helping Bean: There’s been little that’s new and exciting in footwear in recent years beyond UGG boots and Crocs, said Alexander Geyman, editor of Focus on Fashion Retail, outside Los Angeles. Trendy UGG boots and the Timberland brand outstrip Bean’s in sales,

australia ugg boots restaurants and services to show off for Ardmore Open House

Ardmore is putting out the welcome mat this month in a big way.

A new community event, the Ardmore Open House, will kick off a busy fall season of events in the historic downtown, showcasing the many shops, restaurants and services all around town.

There will be strolling musicians and jugglers, family and children’s activities, food tastings, demonstrations, sidewalk sales and in store specials. The best part of the day, though, said Lisa Burns, president of the Ardmore Business Association, is that each business will be hosting a different event or activity highlighting what makes it a unique part of the community.

The business association is producing the event, whose presenting sponsor is Armen Chevrolet. Open Championship’s return to the Merion Golf Club.

Some of the feedback businesses had given on recent events, Burns said, however, was that, while they were successful in bringing people into the business district, more could be done to “get people into the businesses” themselves.

“When we do these events in a central location, it doesn’t always translate into traffic into the stores,” explained Ardmore Initiative’s executive director, Christine Vilardo. “We wanted to do a non central event.”

With the idea of a town wide open house, the organizations wanted to get the business owners involved. They asked each to brainstorm their own individual events and attractions.

“The businesses are really responding,” Burns said. “We gave them a couple of suggestions, but they have really taken that and run with it.”

As the date of the open house approaches, nearly three dozen businesses have announced plans to participate, and the interest continues to build. “Every day I get two or three more businesses signing up,” Burns said. “I’m so excited to see what they’ve come up with.”

It’s an opportunity for those who are already familiar with Ardmore to visit their favorite businesses and get to know them better. For others, it’s a chance to discover all that Ardmore has to offer. “It’s a welcoming day,” Vilardo said.

Speaking for the business association, Burns said the Ardmore Open House “serves our mission more than any other event letting the businesses shine and do what they do best.”

Businesses along Lancaster Avenue and the side streets of Ardmore and Cricket avenues and Rittenhouse Place are participating , along with several stores at the Ardmore West shopping center, so it’s a perfect opportunity to stroll the downtown. Be sure to pick up a copy of Ardmore Initiative’s walking tour of the historic business district. To make it even easier for shoppers and business patrons to stop by, parking throughout the business district will be free for the event.

In the category of beauty and fashion, Sabrina Ann bridal consignment will be offering free makeovers and Rae Co. will hold a jewelry sidewalk sale. Giannini Jewelers will offer free jewelry cleaning. The Junior League Thrift Shop promises special sales, including Halloween items. The Tasting Room will be the site for an artist’s trunk show. There will be cake and crafts to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Mud Room pottery studio,. A DJ will be on hand at Mapes 5 10, where there will also be free popcorn and hotdogs.

As for food, Melodies Caf will host a coffee tasting and sampling of snacks. Jules Thin Crust will be sampling its pizza.

Among other features: Pet Valu will host PALS rescue with kittens for adoption, a dog trainer available for “ask the expert” help and free pet nail clippings by a visiting veterinarian. Ardmore’s Nahjee Grant will be signing copies of his latest children’s book, “Believe in Yourself: A Mirror of Hope,” dedicated to children and families affected by cancer, at the Ardmore Initiative office.

PastPresentFuture owner Sherry Tillman is offering a tax free shopping day. Other stores in the downtown plan sidewalk sales, and Burns reminds that nearby Suburban Square will be holding sidewalk sales that weekend. There will be information there about many more events coming to the downtown this fall, including:
