Ryan Stahlhut stopped by the “Stew for Lunch” radio program to discuss the Penn Station East Coast Subs of Munster and Schererville Indiana. Ryan and his team offer fresh food daily and fresh squeezed lemonade. Catering and Box lunch menu is available as well.  My favorite is the Grilled Artichoke with Mushrooms. But visit Penn Station and discover your very own favorite samich.

Star Wars fans recreate the movie | Orange UK.

Thousands of Star Wars fans have joined forces to create a low-budget version of George Lucas’s classic film.

Star Wars Uncut has gone down a storm and has attracted more than 1.3 million hits since it was uploaded to YouTube a week ago.

It was the brainchild of film buff Casey Pugh who cut the film into 472 15-second segments and asked fans to record their own interpretations.

Although the clips had been available online previously, this is the first time they have been put together into a full-length film.

Star Wars Uncut: Director’s Cut is the end result and Mr Push is very proud of his creation.

He said: “I’m very excited and proud to release the entire film. Watch it for guaranteed LOLs and nostalgia.”

Mr Pugh’s efforts have already earned him a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media.

The movie is an eclectic mix of live-action, animation and puppetry, featuring actors of all ages, and in some cases species.

A bewildering variety of household goods are enlisted as substitutes for the original film’s ground-breaking special effects and props.

Locations vary, with efforts to faithfully recreate the original sets sitting side-by-side with homes, suburban streets, bowling alleys and, in one case, a hot tub.

Bozo Criminal for January 25, 2012

Bozo criminal for today comes from Lynn, Massachusetts, where bozo Tina Carroll used a stolen welfare benefits card to purchase $64 worth of soft drinks. But it wasn’t her thirst that drove her to make such a purchase. It was her desire to cash in the aluminum cans for recycling. And since the supermarket had an automated recycling machine on premises, what could go wrong? A lot, if you’re a bozo. She loaded the full drink cans into the machine without bothering to empty them. As you can imagine, the carbonated beverages made quite a mess when the machine tried to process them, drawing the attention of store security personnel. She’s under arrest.

MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. (AP) — It’s a case of an officer-gone-wild. A former campus cop faces up to five years in prison, after getting two Central Michigan University coeds to flash their breasts. Now, Jeffrey Card has pleaded guilty to misconduct. Prosecutors charge he was on patrol when he gave the two women a ride in September from a bar. Authorities say he convinced the students to briefly flash, after making a bet concerning their blood alcohol level. A local paper (Morning Sun) reports Card was suspended and later quit the force.


LONDON (AP) — No ticket — no baby. That’s the policy for the 2012 London Olympics. But organizers say they’ve been deluged with complaints from moms-to-be. Organizers have said that every child — including newborns — would need a full-priced ticket. Now, the London Organizing Committee says they’re taking another look at the baby question. Some of women who have protested say they’ll be breast-feeding and want to take their babies to Olympic venues.


OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Some officials in Ocean City want more horsing around on the beach — with real horses. Brent Ashley is a councilman in the Maryland resort city. He’s proposing that horseback riding on the beach be permitted during the offseason. He says it’s a way to increase tourism during the slow months. A local paper (Daily Times of Salisbury) reports the council is split on the issue. Council members will take it up again next month. Some critics worry about horse — you-know-what — on the beach. Riders would face a 500-buck fine for not cleaning up after the animals.


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Pete the pig is gone — but a Louisville family wants his record to live on. Ed and Denise Stottmann claim their recently departed potbellied pig was the oldest ever. They tell a Kentucky paper (Courier-Journal) Pete was 21 years and 30 days old, when he passed on last week. The Stottmanns say their porker was 13 days older than the pig with the current Guinness record. They’re filing the paperwork with the Guinness people. The Stottmanns add they loved Pete and feel he deserves the honor.


NOGALES, Ariz. (AP) — It certainly was no factory option on one BMW. Federal officers in Arizona report finding more than a-half million bucks in cash hidden in the bimmer. The car was stopped at the border and searched. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers put the car on a lift and spotted a hidden compartment. Agents say the driver, a 58-year-old Phoenix man, was trying to take the cash into Mexico. The money was seized and the man busted.


NEW YORK (AP) — Spelling counts — especially in a school zone. The word “school” is misspelled in front of a New York City high school. The New York Post reports that big white letters in front of the school on the Lower East Side say “S-H-C-O-O-L” crossing. But don’t blame the city. A spokesman for the Department of Transportation says the goof was made by a utility contractor after street repairs. He adds the mistake will be corrected.

A tire company says it’s new invention could put an end to frustrating slow punctures and dangerous high-speed blow-outs.

Bridgestone says its groundbreaking new prototype airless tirenever goes flat.

It is made of a recyclable plastic resin weaved into a mesh of spokes to support the tread of the tire.

The flexible design plays a key part in assuring the tire does not collapse – performing the function air pressure does in regular tires.

According to Bridgestone, the ‘non-pneumatic’ tire is at an early stage of development but should eventually be available in retail vehicles.

A Bridgestone spokesman said: “There is no need to periodically refill the tires with air, meaning they require less maintenance.

“At the same the worry of punctures is eliminated. Non-pneumatic tires have less impact on the environment than today’s conventional tires.

“The concept tire could prove to be a viable and more environmentally-friendly alternative to conventional tires in the future.”

1985 – Hugh Hefner said, “Out with the staples!” Playboy magazine announced its 30-year tradition of stapling centerfold models in the bellybutton and elsewhere would come to an end. The centerfold became more difficult to remove in October 1985, when the magazine began to glue its publication instead.

Bozo criminal for today comes from Coos Bay, Oregon, where our unidentified bozo carjacked a vehicle, kicked the driver out of the car and sped away. He didn’t speed very far before noticing that the previous driver had the car running on fumes. So, our bozo pulled into a gas station to fill ‘er up. Unfortunately for him, police looking for the stolen car happened to drive by at the same time. Oops. He’s under arrest.Bozo Criminal for January 12, 2012


LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader can sue a website operator. A federal judge has ruled Sarah Jones can press her defamation case against and its owner. Jones says she had to leave her job as a teacher because of false sexual and offensive comments about her posted on the site. One featured a picture of Jones, along with claims about her sex life as a cheerleader and teacher. Attorneys for the site say the owner isn’t liable for comments posted by others.


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities charge it was one hot jail burrito. But a Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy says he’s innocent.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — High on voting. And now a medical marijuana dispensary owner is off the legal hook in Michigan. A jury has found Shekina Pena innocent on a charge of trying to influence voters.

HOUSTON (AP) — Talk about high heels. Authorities charge a young New York woman had about three pounds of cocaine hidden in her shoes. Brielle Latoi Orridge of the Bronx was indicted yesterday.

Customs agents say her luggage was searched after a drug-sniffing dog detected something suspicious.


PROVO, Utah (AP) — When Matt Burch restores an antique ride, he’s not working on an old car. The Utah man’s passion is antique wagons. Over the last decade he’s restored 21 wagons, carriages and even horse-drawn hearses. He says the wagons are used in everything from weddings to funerals. Burch tells the Daily Herald newspaper one of the toughest jobs is rebuilding wagon wheels. They might not look that complicated, but Burch says the whole thing falls apart if you’re just a-quarter of an inch off.


HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Booze will soon cost more in the Keystone state. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board is lifting an 18-month moratorium on price increases. The price freeze was imposed because of the economic downturn. Hundreds of wine and liquor products in state-owned stores could see higher price tags as early as next month. State officials say producers will be able to pass along their increased costs.
