INSIDE SCOOP

TODAY

Today’s weather forecasts called for anywhere between an inch of snow and the start of a new ice age. Since we’re not sure which to believe, we’ll play it safe and recommend that you stay home today. Watch some soaps or game shows. Read a book. Play video games or watch a movie on Blu-ray. What? You don’t have a Blu-ray player? Forget what we said about staying in; go out and find one on sale.

TONIGHT

If the weather or the new Blu-ray player doesn’t keep you inside tonight, you might want to head down to the WVIA Hi-Def Theater Studio in Pittston for a screening of the documentary about Jan Lewan, “The Man Who Would Be Polka King.” There will be a Q&A with filmmaker John Mikulak following the screening. 7 p.m. Admission is free, but reservations are required. 602-1150.

TOMORROW

It’s been a while since we’ve mentioned this, but the Everhart Museum’s popular Rocks & Minerals Gallery reopened in November following a decade-long hiatus. The updated version of the “Rocks Room,” which was created in the 1950s and known for its “glow-in-the-dark” rocks, is now a permanent gallery. The museum states that the exhibition will awaken “the wonder and magic of museums.”
