The Weekend Desk Report

"In 1917, Melvin Jones, a 38-year-old Chicago business leader, asked a straightforward and world-changing question: 'What if people put their talents to work improving their communities?'" the Seal Beach Sun of California reports.

"With this issue and some vibrant leadership, almost 100 years later, Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization.

"Our 'Pride of Lions' is 1.37 million members in more than 46,000 clubs and countless stories of Lions acting on the same simple idea: let's improve our communities."

The local Lions Club is having its annual Fish Fry this weekend.

"So be sure to come down on to the Fish Fry and enjoy music, some age-appropriate beverages, fish, hot dogs or brats and the best of Seal Beach's laid-back community feel.

"Be sure to carpool too; it is an excellent way to avoid filling up all that parking on residential streets.

"Prices: Fish and Chips Dinner: $10 / $8 children. Braut / Cajun Sausage Dinner: $7. Hot Dog Dinner: $6. Beer 16 oz. & Wine 9 oz: $6 /$6. Water / Soda / Lemonade Beverages: $1. Fries (ala carte): $2."

Chicago, South Carolina
"A family that owns three Mexican restaurants in York County has branched out into a new venture: Hartland's, an eatery and sports bar near the Rock Hill Galleria," the Rock Hill Herald reports.

"Hartland's Bar, at 2260 Cross Pointe Drive in the Food Lion shopping center, opened in late June. It offers a large menu with appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, wings, salads, seafood and more, plus a bar with 18 beers on tap and a variety of signature cocktails. Lots of televisions give patrons the chance to watch their favorite teams.

"Charlie Ramirez, who owns the business with his parents, Freidy and Maria Ramirez, said they have more than 30 years of experience in the restaurant business, including about 15 years in York County . . .

"Ramirez said his parents both grew up in Chicago. He said Hartland's Bar is named after Hartland Court, a street in Chicago where his mother, Maria, was living when she and his father met.

"A colorful mural image of Hartland Court is posted on a wall at the entrance to the bar area. Ramirez said he and his siblings were in Chicago last summer, and took pictures of that street. His father had the image made into a poster to be displayed on the wall."

There are tons of stories like this across America; it always amuses me that Chicago staples are exported as a thing. At least this one includes tater tots.

The Sound Opinions Weekend Listening Report: "It's not a political rally without a crowd-pumping and uplifting playlist. But political campaign teams are not always great music tastemakers. NPR's National Political Correspondent Don Gonyea talks with Jim and Greg about hearing the same songs over and over on the campaign trail. Then they play campaign managers and make a list of better campaign theme songs. Plus, a review of the long-awaited second album from The Avalanches."
