Oscars Preview Part II: 'Midnight in Paris' and 'Moneyball'

In case you missed Part One of Patrick's preview to the Oscars, you can read it here.

The Wilson Post

Sunday marks the 84th annual Academy Awards and while I already tabbed War Horse to win Best Picture, I expect Midnight in Paris to win two Oscars for the legendary Woody Allen and surprise contender Moneyball to grab an Oscar for young actor Jonah Hill as well as Best Adapted Screenplay.

Midnight in Paris is a film written and directed by Allen, about struggling writer Gil Pender, played by Owen Wilson, who while on a trip to Paris, falls in love with the city, and takes an unorthodox journey every midnight. Pender meets all of his favorite artists, writers and longs for the Golden Age of the 1920s.

The film delivers many of Allens famous humor side-by-side with a strong look into the notion that the past always seems more romantic than the present. For Gil, 1920s Paris was the only time worth living in, and while he finds inspiration and joy in his time-traveling midnight strolls, he also discovers important truths about himself and the life hes living in the present.

Mayor: "whole list" of improvements to tackle with sales tax increase

The Wilson Post

A proposal to raise sales taxes in Lebanon unanimously passed the City Council Tuesday night, which City Mayor Philip Craighead said could generate up to $3.4 million to tackle a laundry list of needed improvements in the city, but first the measure must go to a public referendum.

Craighead is calling for a 0.5 percent increase to the local share, which would increase the rate from 2.25 to 2.75 percent.

The mayor said, we have a whole list of priorities the additional revenues would be used to address. He pointed to solving flooding issues, increasing yearly paving budgets, improving and adding sidewalks in the city and possibly building a new fire hall as options.
