A gleaming 21st- century chandelier dangling over a 19th-century Steinway. Past, meet present – 1860, meet 2015. This is Lindenwood: A Country Destination. It’s the Harrisburg Symphony Society Showhouse & Gardens 2015 – the society’s seventh showhouse, where the region’s noted interior and outdoor designers decorate in their own unique flair, space by space. As showhouse co-chair Debra Yates puts it, “You walk in and feel that it’s taking you back in time, but then you come up to the 20th century, too. The setting is Lindenwood Farm, a sylvan hideaway outside of Mechanicsburg with history dating back to Pennsylvania’s native Shawnee and Delaware tribes. Since 1962, it has been in the Simpson family, purchased by newlyweds Jerry and Hilary Simpson and the home where they raised children (plus dogs and ponies), hosted weddings and welcomed grandchildren. “It’s a country destination where people can come and relax from the city,” says co-chair Phyllis Mooney. Maybe it’s the verdant setting. Maybe it’s the tasteful Essis & Sons carpeting guiding visitors from room to room. Maybe it’s the family feel and the property’s long history as a working farm. Though each of the spaces reflects the taste of the designer who got the assignment, it all flows together as if coordinated.
For the second consecutive season, NBA fans are seeing the Toronto Raptors point guard like never before. Both his 19. 4 points-per-game scoring average and 21. 8 player efficiency rating are personal bests for the nine-year veteran. There may have been some concern that last season's breakout had something to do with his impending free agency, but he got paid last summer. That's how the Cleveland Cavaliers have fared without LeBron James this season. The first James-less victory came against a Charlotte Hornets team that had lost four games in a row. 28 against Portland, required an NBA season-high 55 points from point guard Kyrie Irving. Even without an established criteria in place for the NBA MVP award, you'd think Cleveland's performance with and without James would make for quite the compelling argument. The Cavs are 15. 5 points per 100 possessions better when he plays. "And you don't have to look very far at our record to see what impact he has on this team when he's playing and not playing. Since taking a two-week break to recover from multiple injuries, James has averaged an absurd 30. 5 points on 50. 6 percent shooting, 6. 8 rebounds, 6. 4 assists and 2. 0 steals. A sore wrist sidelined him for Cleveland's last game, but that's been the only thing capable of stopping him lately.
Republican Chris Christie said he wanted to explain to Iowans how the state where he's governor has helped prepare him to be president of the United States. New Jersey, he said during a speech in Iowa Monday night, was just named one of the most liberal states in America. "Now I came in with someone today, and he said, 'Gosh if you ever did run for president, if you ever did become president, how would you be ready to deal with the Congress. "I said, 'Listen, I've dealt with the Legislature in New Jersey for five years. As folks in Iowa will probably recall, this is a group of people that twice passed a ban on gestational crates for pigs, yet we produce almost no pork.
