LCSC's Shakespeare Society and the Silverthorne Theater Group present Loves Me (Not)

LCSC's Shakespeare Society and the Silverthorne Theater Group present Loves Me (Not)

 

Join the dedicated actors of The Loves Me (Not) Devising Company as they perform the story within us all: “Loves Me (Not): A Mediation on Love from the Work of William Shakespeare.” Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m., April 30 - May 2, in the newly renovated Silverthorne Theater in the Administration Building at Lewis-Clark State College.

 

Taking Shakespeare out of the land of Elizabethan England, and into the modern world of one party, 22 characters, and too many red Solo cups, “Loves Me (Not)” explores the transcendence of romance over time and the universality of the emotions that drive people—regardless of class, family, war, greed and pride—to fall into deep, sometimes maddening, love.

 

Romeo and Juliet proclaim their love once more, but this time in 2015. Lady Macbeth continues to plot her move to power, however, instead of doing it in a medieval castle, she opts for a modern rager. Beatrice and Benedick continue their squabbles, yet in a vast land of beer pong, Beliebers and Barbie doll beauty.

Idaho Brewers Trail Map Brochure now available

Idaho Brewers Trail Map Brochure now available

 

The craft brewing industry has seen remarkable growth in Idaho with new breweries opening their doors at record numbers. The new Idaho Brewers Trail Map makes it easy to find information on all these breweries in one location. Visitors and locals now can sip their way around Idaho and learn more about the state’s craft brew industry. The collaborative effort between the Idaho State Department of Agriculture and Idaho Brewers United features information on 51 breweries and an additional six breweries scheduled to open this year. 

 

In 2013 Idaho had only 34 operating breweries. Idaho Department of Agriculture Director Celia Gould said, “Many of Idaho’s craft breweries go beyond just brewing beer in Idaho and include many Idaho ingredients in their brews, such as locally grown grains, hops, and berries. The craft beer industry is important to Idaho’s economy and the agriculture industry.”

 

The brochure was created not only to show the locations of Idaho’s craft breweries but also to teach about the ingredients grown in Idaho that are used in the brewing process.

Snake River spring Chinook fishery starts April 19

 

Two sections of the Snake River, below Ice Harbor Dam near Pasco and below Lower Granite Dam, will open to fishing for spring Chinook salmon Sunday, April 19th. Two other sections of the river – below Little Goose Dam and Clarkston – will open Thursday, April 23rd.

 

Each section of the river is scheduled to be open three days per week. Waters below Ice Harbor Dam and below Lower Granite Dam are scheduled to be open Sunday through Tuesday each week, while the Little Goose Dam and Clarkston area sections will be open Thursday through Saturday each week.

 

All four sections will remain open until further notice.

 

Jeremy Trump, district fish biologist for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), said the fishery will likely remain open from four to six weeks.

 

“We have a strong run-size forecast for Columbia River spring chinook this year, so we will likely be able to sustain fishing into late May,” Trump said.

 

Life Flight helicopter to participate in LCSC's disaster drill April 13

Life Flight helicopter to participate in LCSC's disaster drill April 13

 

The Lewis-Clark State College Nursing and Health Science Division will simulate a disaster drill on Monday April 13th from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on the LCSC Administration Building lawn just east of the Library.

 

A Life Flight medical helicopter is scheduled to participate in the drill. The helicopter is expected to touch down at 2:00 p.m. After a demonstration of the equipment on board is given to students, the helicopter will simulate the transport of a patient as it heads back to Life Flight headquarters.

 

The semiannual drill, which has occurred once per semester for the past 16 years, is part of LCSC's Community Health Nursing course taught by Dr. Tracy Flynn and Susie Blunt, professors of nursing at Lewis-Clark State.

 

"It's meant to prepare students to respond to any disasters that may occur in the region and it's a terrific experience for the students," Flynn said. "They generally enjoy the drill and it gives them a good idea of what to expect in a mass casualty situation."
