Q. I was racing down the cellar stairs a few days ago when I slipped and fell on my tailbone. I’ve had pain ever since. What should I do about it?
The coccyx (tailbone) is made up of three to five vertebrae at the lower end of the spine. Most people have a coccyx of four of these spinal bones. The coccyx functions as an attachment site for muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Coccyx comes from the Greek word for cuckoo. The coccyx’s shape is like the beak of a cuckoo. The human coccyx is considered a vestige of what was once a tail.
More than 60 people will recreate the 1960s era in Munopco Music Theatre’s big, bold and bright production of the hit Broadway musical “Hairspray.”

I have been going to a new hair salon for a little over a year now. I am happy with my hairstyle, but I feel uncomfortable every time I go because of all the gossip that goes on. Going to the salon is one of the few luxuries I do for myself and I would like this time to be a little more relaxing. It also makes me wonder what is said about me after I leave. Is there anything I can do, or should I find another salon?
It’s just “Incredibles.”
Yes, the sequel, “Incredibles 2,” outdoes “Incredibles,” released nearly 15 years ago, in 2004.
“Incredibles 2,” as with many Disney-Pixar animation features films, is preceded by brief interviews with those who voice the characters, including Craig T. Nelson (Bob Parr-Mr. Incredible) and Holly Hunter (Mrs. Parr-Elastigirl), who joke about the lag time between the original and its sequel.” To paraphrase, they promise, “It’s worth the wait.”
They are correct.
The Schubert Theatre in Labuda Center for the Performing Arts at DeSales University is a kind of thespian trampoline. The three-sided stage with arena-style seating on each of the three sides lends itself to actor-audience interplay.
