Montana Singer Jennifer Lopez, 51, and actor Ben Affleck, 48, were reported last week to have reunited after 17 years and celebrity friends could not help but lap up the story. Known as Bennifer in the early 2000s, the couple was seen on a romantic getaway to an exclusive ski chalet in Montana over the weekend. Last month, Lopez split up with former baseball star Alex Rodriguez, as known as A-Rod. The couple was known as J-Rod. In January, Affleck broke up with actress Ana de Armas, 33.

In 2004, Lopez and Affleck called it quits after starring in the romantic comedy Gigli (2003), which bombed at the box office. Lopez also had a minor role in an Affleck movie, Jersey Girl (2004), which was directed by Kevin Smith, 50, according to The Straits Times.

Actress-singer Bette Midler, 75, took to Twitter to say: #BenAffleck and #JenniferLopez might be back together? Aww. Thats nice, but I was hoping that if we could bring anything back from the early 2000s, it would be my pelvic floor muscles.

Afflecks good friend, actor Matt Damon, 50, was asked on the Today show about the ski trip but professed not to know anything about it or the alleged romance.

Its a fascinating story. I hope its true. I love them both. That would be awesome, he said.

41 years ago: Mount St. Helens woke up and blew her top – Seattle PI05.19.21

There's a good chance you remember where you were on May 18, 1980 at 8:32 a.m.

Following two months of earthquakes and seismic activity,Mount St.Helensblew her top. Ash shot up 80,000 feet into the air. Lava and blasted rock destroyed just about everything within a 19-mile radius.

By the time the eruption ended, 57 people were killed and $1 billion in damage was done to the landscape and infrastructure around the volcano.

Before the blast, Mount St.Helenswas the fifth highest peak in Washington state. After blowing her top, her status dropped to 30th highest peak.

The front page of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer from April 5, 1980.

The eruption began with anearthquake under the mountain. That caused a landslide, which sent rock, snow and ice plowing down the volcano at speeds topping 200 mph. Forests were mowed down. An avalanche piled up as deep a 600 feet in some areas.

Meanwhile, hot ash shot up into the sky, reaching 15 miles above the peak of Mount St.Helensin 15 minutes. Up to 10 inches of ash fell in nearby areas, but a half-inch was recorded in areas over 300 miles away. Flecks of ash reached areas like Minnesota and New Mexico, and continued to circle the globe for two weeks.

The front page ofthe SeattlePost-Intelligencerfrom May 20, 1980.

Hot ash was recorded by infraredweathersatellites as it reached the upper levels of the troposphere and moved eastward.

Layered lava flows poured out for several minutes. Earthquakes and smaller eruptions continued for days. Rescue operations were dangerous. Houses and bridges were destroyed, along with 185 miles of highway.

Though devastating, the eruption of 1980 was not the first, and it wasn't completely unforeseen. Records suggest an eruption occurred at Mount St.Helensaround the year 1800. Then, in 1968, scientists warned Mount St.Helenscould erupt again at any moment. They continued to monitor the volcano for 12 more years.

On March 27, 1980, a small crater opened following an explosion of steam. Rising magma created a bulge on St.Helens' side. Eventually, that bulge stuck out more than 300 feet. The earthquake on May 18 triggered its explosion.

The front page ofthe SeattlePost-Intelligencerfrom May 8, 1980.

Today, Mount St.Helensis the only volcano in Washington that has what experts describe as a "sufficient" amount of monitoring equipment. Twenty-five monitors and 20 GPS stations are working within 12 miles of the volcano, in addition towebcamsand other instruments able to detect sound waves or monitor gas.

It was also listed as one of the 18 most threatening volcanoes in the country by theU.S. Geological Surveyin its annual volcano threat assessment most recently updated in 2018. Three others are also located in Washington state: Mount Baker, Mount Rainier and Glacier Peak.

The impact of the Mount St.Helenseruption 39 years ago was still visible in the surrounding areas. Signs of life returning are present, but landscapes near the volcano remain barren. To see photos of the eruption and aftermath, click through the slideshow above.

On March 21, 1980, tucked into the eighth page of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer was a brief, three-paragraph report about an earthquake that rippled through the Mount St. Helens area. The brief didn't even have an author's name, it felt like such an insignificant occurrence, even though the quake registered at 4.1 on the Richter Scale.

Page eight of the SeattlePost-Intelligencerfrom March 21, 1980.

No damage or injuries were caused by the earthquake, a spokesman for the U.S. Geological Survey told the P-I in 1980. He even added that earthquakes shook the isolated areas in that region quite often.

Four days later, headlines regarding earthquakes near Mount St. Helens appeared in larger font -- and started migrating to the front page.

The front page ofthe SeattlePost-Intelligencerfrom March 25, 1980.

"Quakes May Herald St. Helens Eruption," read a headline below the fold on the March 25, 1980 edition of the P-I. The next day, news from Mount St. Helens crawled up the page as a headline said, "Evacuation of Mount St. Helens Advised," as more earthquakes started to shake the region.

The first few paragraphs of the latter story read:

"Residents at the foot of Mount St. Helens were advised to evacuate last night as seismograph machines measuring earthquakes continued beating a lively tattoo.

The front page ofthe SeattlePost-Intelligencerfrom March 26, 1980.

"They're (earthquakes are) happening so fast that we can't even count them," Dave Endicott, University of Washington spokesman for seismographic equipment recordings said.

"The machines physically can't even keep track of the quakes. They're overlapping.

'Between 1 and 3 p.m. yesterday there were a dozen quakes of 3.0 or higher (on the Richter scale), ranging up to about 4.5 ... There were a lot of others at less than 3.0, some so slight you couldn't have felt them.'"

The front page ofthe SeattlePost-Intelligencerfrom March 27, 1980.

Stories of seismic activity at and near the stratovolcano continued throughout the next few months, including a March 27 story of residents fleeing the area after a steam explosion ripped part of the mountain off. Two headlines on the March 28 edition of the P-I read: "Explosion Could Come 'in Minutes,'" and "If St. Helens Really Clears Its Throat, Watch Out ..."

The front page ofthe SeattlePost-Intelligencerfrom March 28, 1980.

In April, front-page stories subsided as the mountain's belching contained no ash, only steam, and soon only experts kept their eyes on St. Helens.

The front page ofthe SeattlePost-Intelligencerfrom April 14, 1980.

Then, a week into May, the mountain's activity started raising alarms again, until a May 19 headline screamed the previous day's news:

The front page ofthe SeattlePost-Intelligencerfrom May 19, 1980.

"8 Killed as Volcano Blows Ash Spreads to Montana."

The headlines continued with the coming days, with reports on the ash that blanketed Washington, the rising death tolls from the volcano's destruction, and the region's changing landscape from lahars and other wreckage from the mountain.

41 years ago: Mount St. Helens woke up and blew her top - Seattle PI

The Power and Sound Revival | Music | yesweekly.com – Yes! Weekly05.06.21

Start your engines: thePower and Sound Revivalis coming to the Piedmont Dragway in Julian on May 22.

An inaugural festival presented by the mother-daughter duo, the Rockingham Company, the Revival aims to celebrate roots, Americana, and alt-country artists from across the southeast, along with classic cars, bikes, and vans.

According to 19-year old Head Honcho Olivia Williams, the intention is to revel in the simple act of being together again celebrating music, art, and life.

For Williams, and her mom, Michelle, it all boils down to the simple love of family and tunes, combined with some complex machinery and sweet custom rides.

Musically, the line-up features Them Dirty Roses, 49 Winchester, Whiskey Foxtrot, Crenshaw Pentecostal, Jive Mother Mary, Downtown Abby and the Echoes, and John Howie, Jr., and the Rosewood Bluff.

I think the best term for the music at the event is probably Americana, and I think each act has its own spin on the broad genre of Americana, Williams noted of the bill. Michelle and I booked some of our favorite local and national acts, she added. The addition of Whiskey Foxtrot, which features Olivias brother and Michelles son, Seth, is a given.

Its a real family affair, as Seth will appear as a performer, art vendor and even painted some of the promotional raffle materials. Hes also a person I have bounced tons of ideas off of, Williams said, and has been a big part of the festivals development.

Their dad, Justin, has also been involved. He welded some of the custom car show trophies and helped with the more technical side of planning, Williams noted. Like picking what size generators well need and other dad things.

For Michelle, the greatest legacy we can leave our children is happy memories, with her rock-n-roll family creating a package deal. As Olivia explained, my brother started playing in clubs at 13, and my whole family would be involved. Our mom booked the gigs, and dad learned how to be the sound guy and roadie real fast. I got into photographing music. Our parents are always very supportive of everything we do, and Im very grateful for that. Its really nice to have a support system to bounce ideas off of and help out on the bad days.

The support system has produced a unit befitting a formal talent agency, the Rockingham Company, with its major festival debut combining the love of music and vehicles the family shares.

I had always wanted to do an event and incorporate all the things I love, like music and cars, Williams explained of their motivation for getting off the ground. Seth is very into vannin and the custom culture. So I wanted to help shine a light on the custom culture in and around North Carolina.

Theyve been getting geared up through Instagram, highlighting specialty vans as rad rides of the week. The family itself has a fleet of their own rad rides. Weve got too many to name, Williams said. Her personal daily is a fairly cherry 95 Chevy Shorty.

Drawing a few influences from Winston-Salems annual Heavy Rebel Weekender, the Power and Sound Revival goes beyond music, incorporating a car, van, and bike show open to attendees who register. Overnight camping is also available for registrants.

To judge the bike show, theyve wrangled Ross from Stunt Army, Jason from Chillbillys, and Gorgeous George from Smut Butt Magazine, wholl all have booths during the festival. The public will judge the car and van show. Awards include custom trophies and goodies from various vendors, including Gnarly Magazine, Ton Magazine, and Sketch Van Montana.

Beyond tunes and rides, on-site activities will include a bike burnout pit, ax throwing from the Flying Hatchet, live-inking from Black Dog Tattoo, glitter hair and braiding by Boho Salon, and more than 35 vendors from across the southeast. Booze will flow from Four Saints, Hell on Horsecreek, and Little Brother Brewing. Food options include Short Sugars BBQ, the Blissful Palette, and other area eateries.

As for protocols, Safety is a top priority, Williams said. Guests are encouraged to social distance and wear masks when moving about the festival.

Looking ahead, the Rockingham Company hopes to host another, smaller festival in the fall, with the goal of hosting two festivals a year. For now, the pairs plans for Mothers Day are straightforward, well probably be working on the festival, Olivia said. We hope to have a great day and have a safe event for people to come and enjoy music and the show.

Katei Cranford is a Triad music nerd who hosts the Thursday Tour Report, a radio show that runs like a mixtape of bands touring NC the following week, 5:30-7 p.m. on WUAG 103.1FM.

Looking Glass: It was one of those days that a guy would like to forget – Boston Herald05.06.21

A heavily intoxicated 60-year-old man drove behind a school bus in Butte, Montana, while weaving all over the road, and followed it all the way to the bus barn. He had a gallon of Nikolai vodka in the center console and already had racked up at least five DUI convictions. Arresting officers noted that he fell down multiple times outside of the car, had a blood-alcohol level more than three times the legal limit and urinated on himself at the jail.

THAT DREAM DIDNT LAST LONG: A man traveled 90 miles from his home in Pontypridd, South Wales, to pick up the luxury $33,000 Mitsubishi Evo IX sports car he had won in a Dream Car Giveaways drawing. At 6:30 the next morning, he crashed it into a wall near his home. He was cited for driving without due care and attention.

THIS IS ALSO HOW HE WILL PLEAD IN COURT: A man who has a history of drug offenses was arrested in Bismarck, N.D., for failure to appear in court in a methamphetamine possession case. His mugshot showed him wearing a shirt featuring a picture of Pinocchio with the words, It Wasnt Me.

CERTAINLY, SIR, WAIT RIGHT HERE: A man walked up to a teller in a bank in Ocala, Fla., and read her a prepared note, saying that he was robbing the bank and that she was to give him money. But she signaled a coworker, who activated the alarm, and they both went to the back of the bank and called police, who came and found the would-be robber standing in the same spot in front of the teller window.

NO ONE IS FOLLOWING YOU, SIR: A man fired a gun out his bedroom window, jumped off the balcony of his apartment and broke a window to get into the home of a downstairs neighbor in Spring Valley, Calif. People called the cops when they saw him trying to break into apartments in the area. He told police he thought someone was after him, and they said he exhibited signs of being under the influence of a controlled substance.

THANK YOU, MAAM, BUT NO: An extremely intoxicated woman attempted to give random citizens lap dances on the sidewalk outside a bar in St. Petersburg, Fla. When the cops showed up, she asked them if they wanted to bang on the sidewalk and threatened to assault paramedics if they came near her. The officers declined her invitation, and arrested her for disorderly intoxication.

THAT SHOULD TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT HIM RIGHT THERE: A murder suspect who escaped in Atlanta while being extradited to Arizona from Georgia, was recaptured a short time later. He had a tattoo on the front of his neck that said risk.

WHOS A GOOD DOG? YOU ARE, THATS WHO! A dog found a brown satchel containing a large amount of methamphetamine in Ochlocknee, Ga., and brought it home to his owner. The guy opened it up, and immediately called the cops. This led to the arrest of the dealer.

BOOK TIP

We Begin at the End

Chris Whitaker

Wally Lamb, Louise Penny, John Hart, Jane Harper and A.J. Finn are just a few of the esteemed writers in agreement that this novel is a wonderful and heartbreaking achievement. For what it's worth, I'm right there with them. Thirteen-year-old Duchess is a self-proclaimed outlaw the attitude and swagger of which she'll need as she assumes protection of her little brother Robin after Star, their mother, is murdered. Star grew upbest friends in their No-Cal beachtown with Walk, who's now the sherriff, andVincent, just paroled after a long stint in prison following a vehicular homicide convictionwhile he was still a teenager.As Duchess and Robin are bounced from foster home to foster home ultimately landing on a Montana ranch with Star's estranged father Walk struggles to find out who killed Star because he doesn't believe his old friend Vincent did it despite evidence to the contrary. Nothing, though, is as it seems, and Whitaker has a magic trunk full of surpises. AndDuchess,precocious and smart andresilient, is a stunning creation. Her efforts on behalf of Robin to overcome crushing adversity are as indelible as a tattoo, and "We Begin at the End" emerges as an early but strong candidate as one of 2021's finest books.

FOOD TIP

Short rib grilled cheese

Gelston House, East Haddam

I was expecting to most enjoy the grilled cheese portion of this concoction, but the braised short ribs ended up being what really wowed me. They were tender and flavorful and have made me think about returning to the Gelston House ever since. The sandwich ($15) also boasted some caramelized onions along with its aged cheddar and asiago cheeses on grilled sourdough bread. The cheese didn't overwhelm the entire endeavor, which was wise. And you get some delish fries on the side.

Kristina Dorsey

MUSIC TIP

In Another World

Cheap Trick

As the number of rock bands continue to disappear likecrustacean carapaces being hosed off a patio after a crawfish boil, it's always cautiously intriguing when an album (remember those?) of new material comes out from an established and beloved act that plays instruments (remember those?). There'sa bigquestion, though:Despite the intent, do the Old Timers still have any creative juices left? I really do believe riffs and hooks are in finite supplyfor most folks. Fortunately, this doesn't seem to apply to Cheap Trick. Rick, Robin and Tomblast out of the speakers with "In Another World" as though it's 1980 and it's time for the follow up to "In Color." Give a listen and you'd swear we were all still young and feisty. This collection of tunes is triumphant and joyous, crammed full of attitude and swagger and loudguitars andduct tape-sticky melody lines. Oddly, the only weak song is theonly cover, of John Lennon's not-that-great-to-begin-with "Gimme Some Truth."
