Riveting ‘Deepwater Horizon’ captivates throughoutBy LINDSEY BAHR

We all know how “Deepwater Horizon ” ends. When the BP oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, 11 people died and millions of gallons of oil spewed into the waters and up against the Gulf shores in the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history.

The story of the aftermath, even 6 years later, is still being written. The how-did-it-happen is another thing, and the point of director Peter Berg’s intensely thrilling indictment of the greed and gross negligence that contributed to the horrific outcome.

Snyder: Sharing the Emmy love ... with Jimmy, Al and TraeCommentary by Elizabeth Snyder

Jimmy Kimmel did a good job hosting the Emmy Awards last Sunday night — but it didn’t really matter.

Up against tough competition — the Green Bay Packers/Minnesota Vikings game on NBC and part one of the CBS JonBenet Ramsey murder mystery investigation — the Emmys didn’t really stand a chance. Thank goodness AMC wasn’t airing a fresh “Walking Dead”! (And, can there really be a “fresh” episode of a show populated with rotting zombies?)

Music Matters: A Beatles show at Fusion? Yeah, yeah, yeah!COMMENTARY BY PADDY FINERAN

Do you like the Beatles? Is much of your favorite music influenced by the Beatles? Would you go out to a show if your favorite band — along with several others from around town — performed two or three Beatles songs? Sure, yes and of course!

Now, you millennials, before you roll your eyes thinking the Beatles were Mom and Dad’s — or even Grandma’s and Grandpa’s — music, here’s how great their music is. The Beatles are the best selling music act in the U.S. with 178 million units sold and more than 600 million sales worldwide. In 2008, the band topped Billboard magazine’s list of all-time most successful acts, and the Beatles hold the record for most No. 1 hits on the Hot 100. Heck, the group is the best-selling band in history.

Although the sun danced behind clouds most of the afternoon, weather didn't keep a good-sized crowd out of the alley between Sixth and Seventh Avenues downtown for a fundraising event.

Volunteers and supporters for the Kenosha Creative Space threw a block and alley party to raise funds and awareness of their effort to convert the former Kresge store at 5722 Sixth Ave. into a gallery, office space and community asset to support arts program in Kenosha.
