    My friend Rick Whitehead of Bridgeton recently released an independent film titled "Menantico Blues." It is based on the hyper-local legend of Lamb Legs, a crypto-animal who haunts the woods of Newcombtown, Millville, Leamings Mill, and the Menantico Lakes. The cinematography of the Cumberland County pines where I grew up is fantastic, and I even play a small part as Young Pete around the 16th-17th minute. The scene I'm in was shot at the Maurice River Bluffs in southern Millville. While most of the "actors" are people I know and are locals (as you can tell by the accents), we were lucky enough to get Hacksaw Jim Duggan from the WWF to play a part too!

    That was really well done. A lot of it was very funny. I especially liked seeing lambs leg the first time. The way they made his legs bent is a hoot! And I really got involved in the fight at the end. Rick is a good storyteller and producer.

    What about the Lamburt boys? Fiction? Al probably knows them. :)

    Also, you were sitting next to a fire on the bluff. Is that done by the locals too? Is that private property?

    Great Job! I liked all the moving shots from above panning the different areas. Would anyone else like a antifreeze cocktail?

    I have to watch this tomorrow. I'm about 10 minutes in, but it's past my bedtime.

    I enjoyed the movie a lot. Although tt doesn’t speak well for Millville.
