if (iStream.close()
I am stuck on how to use iStream to print

import java.io.*;
import java.util.*;
public class BucketSort {

  public static void main(String[] args) {

    Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in); // This is a scanner for the keyboard

    System.out.print("Enter a filename: ");
    String fname=sc.nextLine();  // This is the name of the input file
    BufferedReader iStream=null; // This represents the input file itself
    Scanner fin;  // This is a scanner for the input file
    try{// The following line opens the file.  It must be in a try block
        iStream = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(fname));
    }
    // catch blocks will deal with possible exceptions
    catch (FileNotFoundException e)
       {System.out.println("Did not find "+fname);}
    catch (IOException e) {}
    // This instantiates the Scanner for the input file.
    fin = new Scanner(iStream);
    int num = fin.nextInt();  // This would input the first int in the input file

    sc.nextLine();  // clear the input buffer
    String[] name = new String[num]; // declare and instantiate an array of num strings

    int[] count = new int[num]; // declare and instantiate an array of num ints

    for (int i=0; i<num; i++)
         name[i] = fin.nextLine();  // input a string for each cell of name

    while (sc.hasNext()){  // until the end of the file is reached
        int vote = sc.nextInt();  // input another int from the file & call it vote

        // process the vote here

    }
    if (iStream.close() {
    // print out the results here.
		System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
		System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
		System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
		System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
		System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
		System.out.print("Enter your vote (0-4): ");
    }
}
}
if (iStream.close() {
    // print out the results here.
        System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
        System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
        System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
        System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
        System.out.print("Enter a fname: ");
        System.out.print("Enter your vote (0-4): ");
    }
}

First of all you have a syntax error because there is no closing paren to match the first opening one. Second of all that piece of code just makes no sense.
