Music and Memory program connects seniors with their past

Before he puts on his headphones, Barnabia Jones, 94, sits still in his wheelchair and doesn't have much to say when he's asked a question. When the music begins to flow into his headset, however, the Healthwin resident becomes almost another person. He closes his eyes, begins tapping his feet, and starts moving around in his wheelchair, dancing. The music clearly provides him a sense of joy.

Movie review: 'Vacation' reboot is a summer bummer

There must be a way to pay tribute to '80s comedy classics like "National Lampoon's Vacation" without using the opportunity to traffic in archaic sexism, gender panic and off-color racial jokes. The reboot of the franchise, "Vacation," does not take that chance. Instead, with a script lazily smeared with profanity and bodily fluids, it feels retro in the bad way. It quickly loses its edge and appeal, and this retelling of the family vacation gone wrong results in a sloppily-executed mess of a summer comedy.

Movie review: Get away from this 'Vacation,' it's pure agony

If there were a 10th circle in Dante's vision of Hell it would be reserved for movies like "Vacation." Not only does the film feature a script that has less life than roadkill, a pacing that makes Los Angeles traffic look like the Indy 500 and as much humor as the mass funeral of orphans, nuns and kittens, it smears the good name of the 1983 Chevy Chase comedy, "National Lampoon's Vacation."
