Movie Review: James Gandolfini: 'Enough Said'

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

When is speaking your mind saying too much? When is biting your tongue saying too little?

Truth in conversation, feelings and action is at the heart of "Enough Said," an entertaining and thoughtful romantic comedy memorable for its nuanced performances, especially that of James Gandolfini in what is his second-to-last big-screen role.

Look for an Oscar actor nomination for Gandolfini and a possible Oscar for the highly-regarded and beloved actor best-known as Tony Soprano on HBO's "The Sopranos."

Healthy Geezer: Somnambulism OK if infrequent event

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Q. Is it true that sleepwalkers can't be hurt when they walk in their sleep?

It is a common misconception that sleepwalkers, aka somnambulists, are often injured when they trip and fall in their sleep.

Another myth is that you should not wake up a sleepwalker. It is not dangerous to awaken a sleepwalker. In fact, it can be quite dangerous not to awake a sleepwalker. The only problem with rousing a sleepwalker is that the person will be disoriented for a while.

Bud's View: Mighty monarch no more?

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 by BUD COLE Special to The Press in Focus

Fewer numbers seen migrating to Mexico

Ah, the many puzzling and extraordinary wonders of nature.

I find it difficult to comprehend the numerous miracles that occur each year within our natural realm.

One of the most amazing occurrences is the transformation of a rather nondescript black, yellow and white striped worm-like caterpillar into the dazzling and colorful adult monarch butterfly.

In truth, the life cycle of all butterflies and moths is a phenomenal act of nature.
