• Free movies will be back on the screen in front of the Covelli Centre. The free showings will begin Monday, June 29. Here's the schedule:
June 29 — Iron Man
July 6 — Jaws
July 13 — Indiana Jones:  Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
July 20 — Sixteen Candles
July 27 — The Family that Preys
August 3 —Madagascar 2
August 10 — Disturbia
August 17 — To Kill a Mockingbird
August 24 — Enchanted
August 31 — The Incredible Hulk

This year the City of Youngstown will show ten movies beginning at sundown each night and Touch of the Moon Candy will sell old-fashioned candy and popcorn at each movie, with all proceeds benefiting adults with disabilities.  So bring a blanket and/or lounge chair & some treats (or go to a downtown restaurant before-hand).  Tell your friends about the movies too.

• Welcome to West Fed the new Papa's restaurant, featuring Puerto Rican cuisine. They were handing out menus Tuesday after just opening up the kitchen inside of Barley’s Bar. The folks operate a similar place on Mathews Road off South Ave.

• Rosetta Stone was at it again Tuesday handing out free samples on West Fed. Tuesday's menu was some sort of Italian sandwich.
