Mesa quickly rebuffs online ‘boring’ image. Growing up in western Pennsylvania, our little town of Aliquippa, a one-steel-mill town that went 7 miles down the Ohio River, employed over 80 percent of all workers. Even in the late 1970s and ’80s, our downtown was more vibrant than Mesa’s. In the heat of the summer, when business was traditionally slow, the merchants came up with a three-day event called ”Rodeo Days.” Everybody dressed in cowboy outfits and all the merchants had special offers, free bus rides, music and lots of free food and beverages. It was a family affair and everyone had fun. Next to the Christmas holiday season, Rodeo Days was a crowd pleaser, brought fun traffic to downtown and increased sales tax revenues. It went on for over 20 years. We had restaurants, stores, movie theaters, nightclubs and taverns when the steel mill workers got off their shifts. There were great clothing stores and home furnishing stores, or anything you needed. Pittsburgh’s downtown had the largest department stores like Gimbels, great night life, professional sports and entertainment.

Do you ever feel like your life resembles the small, furry, rodent running on the spinning wheel of life; ever so busy, but never really going anywhere?

Millions will undoubtedly be flocking to “The Hangover Part III” and “Fast & Furious 6” this weekend, but those seeking a refreshingly original alternative should look no further than the jubilant “Frances Ha.” Directed by Noah Baumbach (“The Squid and the Whale,” “Greenberg”), “Frances Ha” transcends nearly every romantic comedy convention. In fact, it’s not a romantic comedy at all, but rather a young woman’s coming-of-age tale where the term “adult” is thrown around by those who have yet to discover its meaning.
