Kate Gosselin’s Kids Expelled From School For Having “Rage Issues”. Two of Kate Gosselin’s sextuplets have been expelled from their Pennsylvania private school. Collin and Alexis are now being home schooled after allegedly misbehaving at school. According to In Touch, the kids were expelled from the school for fighting with their classmates. A source said, “They’ve fought with their peers, called them nasty names and made fun of other kids. The things they are saying are not words they should know. They are learning them somewhere – but Jon [Gosselin, their dad] doesn’t know where.” All of the 6-year-old sextuplets are also said to be having “rage issues” linked to filming on their reality series “Kate Plus 8.” One of the girls was previously reported to be suspended from school for two weeks after hitting a classmate. A source added to the New York Post that Kate’s “number concern is protecting her children and is keeping this personal situation as a private matter that she works out with her kids.”
Heartwarming Comedy “$5 A Day” Comes To Blu-Ray, DVD. Image Entertainment presents a heartwarming comedy about a father and son struggling with the cost of rebuilding their relationship. “$5 A Day” features an award-winning cast led by Christopher Walken. Nigel Cole directed the 2008 film starring Walken as Nat, an eccentric conman who although content with a life of schemes and underhanded deals, he desires to reconcile with his son Ritchie (Alessandro Nivola), who stopped trusting his father a long time ago. But Nat doesn’t have much time left. After being diagnosed with a terminal illness, he cons Flynn into joining him in a cross country journey to an experimental medical facility. The two realize that to reach their destination, they can only spend no more than $5 a day. To make matters worse Ritchie has obstacles of his own, including an imminent divorce from his wife Maggie (Amanda Peet), and being fired from his job as a Health Inspector. Needless to say, he was also recently released from jail. Growing up with Nat, the troublesome Ritchie inherited some of his unique ways of dealing with situations. Ritchie accepts his father’s offer against his will, and they travel by car from New Jersey to New Mexico, making stops in Pennsylvania, Indiana, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas. Along the way, as expected, many things happen – some hilarious -, which make Ritchie learn more about his father. Along the way, too, they visit Dolores Jones (Sharon Stone), who happened to be Ritchie’s babysitter, and with whom Ritchie had a crush as a kid. Their journey is laden with emotions as well as ridiculous schemes to keep within their budget. Its DVD and Blu-ray are now available at an SRP of $27.98 for the DVD and $29.98 for the Blu-ray.

Founder of Kutztown Folk Festival vanished in mid-1960s, but his legacy lives on. In the late 1940s, when many Americans of German ancestry were still reeling from the horrors of World War II, Alfred L. Shoemaker and two colleagues at Franklin & Marshall College had an idea. They would start a folk-life festival to celebrate the ways of the Pennsylvania Dutch. And in 1950, the first Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Festival was held on the Kutztown Fairgrounds. Celebrating a culture with Germanic roots only five years after the fall of the Third Reich was a gutsy move. Yet the festival, which begins its 60th run today, proved a seminal event in the history of Pennsylvania Dutch culture in Berks and Lehigh counties. Now called the Kutztown Folk Festival, it has exposed thousands to the richness of the farm-based culture that has shaped much of the region’s character. Ironically, the very festival he inspired may have contributed to the eventual demise of Shoemaker, widely regarded as a visionary folklorist. In the mid-1960s, deposed as festival president and in deep financial and emotional trouble, Shoemaker disappeared. More than 50 years later, the fate of perhaps the most important force in the post-World War II revival of Pennsylvania Dutch culture remains shrouded in mystery. Linguist, pacifist, intellectual Born in 1913 in Schnecksville, Lehigh County, Alfred Shoemaker grew up in a home where Pennsylvania Dutch was spoken. He would become a linguist and studied at universities in Munich and Heidelberg, Germany. His doctoral thesis was on the Pennsylvania Dutch dialect. An avowed pacifist, he worked in Army intelligence during World War II and served as translator during interrogations of German prisoners of war. “The Army forced my uncle to carry a sidearm, but he refused to put bullets in it,” recalls Lewis L. Best of Orefield, Lehigh County. Best, 63, remembers Shoemaker as the quintessential intellectual. Sporting a goatee, pince-nez glasses and a three-piece suit, he had the look of an Ivy League professor. Adding to his eccentric aura, Shoemaker drove a beat-up car packed with photos, documents and Pennsylvania Dutch artifacts. “There was just enough room for him to drive it,” Best says. “His car was an office on wheels.” The last time Best saw his uncle was in the mid-1960s when Shoemaker pleaded with relatives for money to finance a trip to Germany, where he had a male companion, Best says. The family refused, according to Best, and Shoemaker stormed away in anger. It was a move relatives would later regret. They never saw him again. Success and failure The Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Festival was to be, its founders felt, different from any other in the country. “We were scholars,” says Don Yoder, who co-founded the festival with Shoemaker and J. William Fry. “We wanted to showcase Pennsylvania Dutch culture in a way that hadn’t been done before.” The idea was to have Pennsylvania Dutch farmers re-create the culture just as they lived it on the farm. Organizers recruited farmers from Berks and Lehigh counties to demonstrate skills like blacksmithing, flax weaving and quilt-making.
No matter which celebrity gossip report you choose to believe – and you have a countless number from which to peruse – the bottom line is this: The future of Jon and Kate Gosselin as a couple is even less promising than that of Jillian Harris and whatever schmo she chooses on The Bachelorette. (No offense, Jake Pavelka.)
While some magazines have announced a divorce date for Jon and Kate, In Touch Weekly says the marriage is already over. According to Todd Cruz, a friend of Jon’s brother and bartender at a Pennsylvania establishment, the Gosselins are only together when cameras are around. It’s supposedly been that way for six months. “He explained it to us at the bar,” Cruz told the tabloid. “He said he was completely miserable and the marriage was pretty much done.” While Jon has received a lot of criticism for visiting bars and flirting with women, he told Todd that it was Kate’s alleged affair with Steve Neild that ended the union. “Jon said then that he confronted Kate six months ago about her relationship with the bodyguard,” the source said. We weren’t there, but we’d imagine Kate’s response was to roll her eyes and tell her husband to stop breathing so loudly.
