    • Everyone is looking for better ways to treat the earth and the food that it produces. The vast size of the supply chain and the practices that are in place are not all bad. The economic might of the United States means we can feed the majority of our people and those in many other countries with what we produce on large commercial farms. At the same time, it makes sense for us to consider increasing the use of local products as well as products that are grown in less traditional ways such as organic farms, urban farms, farmed seafood, etc. Sodexo has taken on an active role to find solutions to these issues. It does not happen overnight but they are working hard to listen to what their customers are looking for and what makes economic sense. Join us for a discussion of these issues and participate in an open forum to get answers to questions you may have about the food served in our community.

    • ‘Breaking Up Is Hard To Do’ by Erik Jackson and Ben H. Winters - It's Labor Day Weekend in 1960. Marge and her stage-struck best friend Lois arrive at Esther's Paradise Resort in the Catskills on a vacation that was intended to be Marge's honeymoon — but the groom has left her at the altar. Lois does her best to console Marge and comes up with a plan to set her up with Del Delmonaco, the resort's handsome but self-obsessed singer who mistakenly assumes that Marge's father can get him on American Bandstand and make him the next teen heartthrob. Then there's Gabe, the geekish handyman and aspiring songwriter, always looking forlornly on — and of course Harvey, the Borscht Belt comic who for years has secretly carried a torch for the widowed Esther. ‘Breaking Up Is Hard To Do’ is a heartwarming throwback to a simpler time infused with great Neil Sedaka tunes.

    • The Dancers of the Nightway; Ceremonial Imagery in Navajo Weaving’
      For Navajo women, the act of weaving has a sacred dimension since, according to tradition, they learned their craft from a supernatural being named Spider Woman. In the distant past, they wove warm blankets for their personal use and, on occasion, for intertribal barter. In the 1880s, the completion of the Santa Fe Railroad and the arrival of Anglo traders on the recently established Navajo Reservation created a new market for their wool products and they began weaving rugs with complex geometric designs for the floors of Victorian homes. In the early twentieth century, some creative weavers were encouraged by traders to incorporate ceremonial imagery into their designs. Their results are lively and imaginative secular interpretations of ceremonial themes.

The law at the time requires him to return the slaves to their 'rightful owner', a Confederate Colonel who is soon to arrive. Shepard Mallory is one of these slaves.
