The bronze statue, weighing more than 900 pounds, was built in 2001 in honor of Paterno’s record-setting 324th Division I coaching victory and his “contributions to the university.” Students... Read More

Saturday, Day 2, at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE, ended with a bang from the pyrotechnics of mainstage headliners The Killers, but there was plenty of action through out the earlier part of the day. The weather was again very cool and cloudy, with a few sprinkles throughout the day. It was very comfortable for a festival held in the middle of a mid-Atlantic summer. It feels like early April. The sun will indeed come out tomorrow, but still only reach about 80. The British isles type... Read More

Breakwater reunites at World Cafe Live 7/21
 
  by: Kibarra - Philadelphia, PA
started: 07/19/12 2:05 pm | updated: 07/19/12 2:05 pm
 
Breakwater, a soulful funk band from Philadelphia, emerged onto the music scene in 1978. They played locally and cranked out covers and original cuts at block parties, bars, and other venues. Once they were signed to Artista Records, their singles crept onto the music charts and made an impact on radio rotations. As ready as they seemed to take on the fame and fortune, they broke up in the mid 80s and slowly drifted apart.

Out of the blue Breakwater has reunited recently and is... Read More
