John G. Scott was a prime example of that adage.
Those who remember Tamaqua’s most famous commercial-art illustrator say he was a quiet, humble man who touched hearts, not through bravado, but quiet brush strokes.
Descendants of Scott from Oregon, California, Delaware and other states gathered Nov. 11, 2018, to unveil an extensive collection of Scott’s creativity, the inaugural exhibit at the newly-opened Tamaqua Historical Society Museum Annex, 114 W. Broad St., Tamaqua.

Q. My eight-year-od son seems to enjoy the company of a boy in the neighborhood who is 11. He shows up at our house every day, and from what I see, he is a big brother to my son. They play games together nicely, and he is very polite. I have tried to visit the boy’s house and meet a parent, but no adult is ever home, and no one calls to check up on him. My concern is: Why would an 11-year-old want to play with an eight-year-old? Should I put restrictions on how much time he spends at our house? I want to be kind, but I am concerned about this relationship.
I am planning on hosting a large family dinner. Our family doesn’t get together often and I really want to spend time talking and catching up. The problem is that I am concerned some family members will be distracted by their cell phones. I would like for everyone to interact and make fun, new memories. How do I ask them to put away their cell phones?
Hosting a family dinner is a great opportunity to reconnect and is so important it should be done as often as possible.

Lots of farce, a little slapstick and an ample serving of comic mayhem are back on the stage at the Pennsylvania Playhouse, Bethlehem, in “Moon Over Buffalo,” through Feb. 24.
The latest offering is one of two dozen award-winning plays and musicals written by Ken Ludwig, who also penned “The Fox on the Fairway” and “Crazy for You,” both of which were produced by the Playhouse last season.
“The Favourite” has extensive use of the fisheye camera lens.
A fisheye lens is a wide-angle lens that achieves visual distortion. The resulting image is that of a panoramic or hemispherical view.
In “The Favourite,” rooms, columns, and even people often appear curved. The fisheye lens is not used in every scene. Extreme closeups are also used to great effect, such as for Emma Stone’s captivating eyes.
