"The Way, Way Back," starring Steve Carrell and Sam Rockwell, concerns a summer vacation, including life lessons learned at a water park.

To win free passes to a July 18 screening of the film at Keystone Art Cinema, all you have to do is share an awkward summer memory below. I'll pick winners at random until all the passes are gone.

Good luck. And hope you are enjoying your summer.

  • drive in theater
    got lost in drive in movie and could['t remember type of car my date was driving
  • Again?
    Having to take "Swimming for Beginners" lessons. Twice.
  • Shark!
    I refused to go swimming for a whole summer after seeing the movie Jaws because I thought a shark could swim up through the dran and make its way into the local community pool.
  • Awkward summer memiry
    Went to summer music camp, met a really cute, smart guy. Went to the beach with him, my boyfriend from home was there.
  • awkward
    dude in front of me at the surf rider lost his swimming trunks .. the water pressure knocked them right off... luckily his feet caught them before they got completely pushed off or else i would have had to help him out by getting them... instead "all" i had to do was turn away so i wasn't looking at his bare arse
  • itchy
    At summer camp got a little poison ivy, umm, down there...
  • Impressive- NOT!
    Ran into a parked car on a bicycle as I was waving good-bye to a boy I was trying to impress.
  • DOH!
    Fell off a pontoon into White River while trying to light a cigarette on a tiki torch. Bad form!!!! Now a non-smoker.
  • More a scar than a memory
    Debuting my girth-slimming new tank suit at the community pool when I was about 10, and getting stuck in it after it got wet. Had ripped the skin on my torso raw by the time I wrestled it off in the changing room. Awkward!
  • Shocking
    Touching an electric fence while commenting "It's amazing these two little wires keep those huge cows in there..."
  • Summer camp
    Went away to summer camp for one week when I was 11 with my younger sister. We used to meet in the camp's chapel and cry together because we were so homesick.
  • awkward summer moment
    Driving as a passenger with a buddy of mine. His brother was in the service and we were in his Mustang. Driving around the "Tee-Pee", reeving the engine and the car died. Everyone in the parking lot started honking their horns and clapping
  • Awkward
    I packed a bag for a night at the lake and you would have thought I was packing for the entire summer. Upon walking up some rocks towards our camp site, my luggage hit the rocks and everything spilled out. You can really get a glimpse of who someone is by the contents of their suitcase. My new boyfriend found out a lot about me with just one spilled suitcase.
  • Camping
    Went camping... Woke up nearly floating. Water up to our knees.
  • awkward summer memory
    basically anytime a bathing suit was involved...
  • Swimming
    Didn't know how to swim when I went to camp - had to learn on the fly to not look like an idiot.

  1. I am not by any means judging whether this is a good or bad project. It's pretty simple, the developers are not showing a hardship or need for this economic incentive. It is a vacant field, the easiest for development, and the developer already has the money to invest $26 million for construction. If they can afford that, they can afford to pay property taxes just like the rest of the residents do. As well, an average of $15/hour is an absolute joke in terms of economic development. Get in high paying jobs and maybe there's a different story. But that's the problem with this ask, it is speculative and users are just not known.

  2. Shouldn't this be a museum

  3. I don't have a problem with higher taxes, since it is obvious that our city is not adequately funded. And Ballard doesn't want to admit it, but he has increased taxes indirectly by 1) selling assets and spending the money, 2) letting now private entities increase user fees which were previously capped, 3) by spending reserves, and 4) by heavy dependence on TIFs. At the end, these are all indirect tax increases since someone will eventually have to pay for them. It's mathematics. You put property tax caps ("tax cut"), but you don't cut expenditures (justifiably so), so you increase taxes indirectly.

  4. Marijuana is the safest natural drug grown. Addiction is never physical. Marijuana health benefits are far more reaching then synthesized drugs. Abbott, Lilly, and the thousands of others create poisons and label them as medication. There is no current manufactured drug on the market that does not pose immediate and long term threat to the human anatomy. Certainly the potency of marijuana has increased by hybrids and growing techniques. However, Alcohol has been proven to destroy more families, relationships, cause more deaths and injuries in addition to the damage done to the body. Many confrontations such as domestic violence and other crimes can be attributed to alcohol. The criminal activities and injustices that surround marijuana exists because it is illegal in much of the world. If legalized throughout the world you would see a dramatic decrease in such activities and a savings to many countries for legal prosecutions, incarceration etc in regards to marijuana. It indeed can create wealth for the government by collecting taxes, creating jobs, etc.... I personally do not partake. I do hope it is legalized throughout the world.

  5. Build the resevoir. If built this will provide jobs and a reason to visit Anderson. The city needs to do something to differentiate itself from other cities in the area. Kudos to people with vision that are backing this project.
