PARK CITY, Utah -- The applause rippled through the Library Center Theatre after Doug Sadler's Swimmers premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Where its echoes spread will decide the movie's fate. "This will launch Doug Sadler," co-producer David Leitner said. But blast-off is no guarantee for the Easton-based Sadler, a writer-director who overcame many obstacles simply to bring Swimmers to fruition. The festival placed his underdog project in a category, American Spectrum, that receives less exposure than the dramatic competition.

Tyrone Lewis had two passions - being a cook and drugs. Hooked on heroin for 15 years, the Baltimore native traces the start of his addiction to a shot of hard liquor given to him when he was 7 by his grandfather. He managed to get and keep - at least for a while - a series of cooking jobs. But he readily admits that "drugs always came first." Now 45, Mr. Lewis has been clean for four years and serves as the kitchen manager for the Dogwood Restaurant in Hampden. He is also the lead apprentice for Chefs in the Making, a culinary training program for recovering addicts, ex-offenders and the homeless started by Dogwood co-owners Galen and Bridget Sampson.
