Last night’s Dispatch concert was definitely one to remember. The show was one of few the band has performed since its 2002 hiatus. Nonetheless, this American indie/roots band brought its unique reggae sound mixed with some rock, ska and even rap to the Bryce Jordan Center (BJC) without any hesitations. I think it’s safe to say that Dispatch is back and better than ever.

The week wouldn’t be complete without a natural disaster. Last week we hit the jackpot with two – an earthquake and a hurricane – although it was our eastern neighbors who were most affected.

Home vegetable gardens are an ideal and super-local way to get fresh, delicious produce, but they can also be a beautiful addition to your yard. Many vegetable plants not only taste great, they look great, too—and not just on a plate.

Farm work can enrich your fantasy life. While weeding our new currant and gooseberry patch the other day, I let my mind wonder …
How close could we get to a truly local food system here in central Pennsylvania? Could we become one of the leading centers of the local food movement in the United States?

A lot of people think of vegetable gardening as a spring/summer thing, and you shut it down in the fall with the exception of the last pumpkins. Actually, there are plenty of different vegetables that thrive in the cooler conditions we have in fall in central Pennsylvania.

Incubus released their sixth full-length studio album If Not Now, When? on July 8. Being a long time fan of the California band, I felt I had to review it. Honestly, it was a bit of a disappointment. I could tell that lead singer Brandon Boyd and the other members are in a much better and happier place than previous albums. However, the majority of the album lacked the intensity and power that they had in the past.
