For better or worse, over the decades, the Lehigh Valley has made the regional, national and international news.
“Mid90s” is the theatrical feature film directorial debut of Jonah Hill.
Hill, who turns 35 in December 2018, has had a prolific acting career with some 60 roles, including increasingly serious roles (Oscar nominee, supporting actor, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” 2013; Oscar nominee, suporting actor, “Moneyball,” 2011) after starting out playing raunchy characters in comedies (“Superbad,” 2007).
Right before the credits roll at the end of the film, “Colette,” there are photos of the real-life Colette and information about her life as a novelist, music hall performer and journalist.
There’s a lot more to the life of Colette than what is included in “Colette” the film.
It makes you wonder why more details weren’t included in the fact-based “Colette.”

But I don’t think it is normal if it happens this often. We have done time-outs, talked to her, and spanked her, but she doesn’t understand that biting hurts and she should not do it. What can we do?
The panel began by talking about what not to do.
