ERHS’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ adventure starts Friday
Hometown Source - almost 2 years
Gaston (Keith Sullivan) thinks he is irresistible as he sings “Me” to a definitely un-smitten Belle (Jaide Friese). (Photos by Bruce Strand)   by Bruce Strand, Arts Editor Jaide Friese can think of several reasons to recommend “Beauty and the Beast,” Elk River’s spring musical, which opens Friday evening at 7 p.m. and continues Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m. “Well, first, it’s Disney, and everybody loves Disney!” said Friese, who plays Belle. “What I like about Belle is, she’s the only classic Disney character who really stands up for herself, and rescues the prince from himself, rather than the prince rescuing her! And the songs are great. I like that the stage version added songs that weren’t in the movie.” “Silly girls” played by Emily Holmquist, Jenny Nordstrom and Shannon White swoon over Gaston (Keith Sullivan). Belle, the beauty, is a bookish dreamer who rejects the arrogant town dreamboat, Gaston (Keith Sullivan) and finds love in the strangest of places, after ventur ...

Student Wins Battle After Prolonged Punishments For Refusing To Stand For Pledge
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Chelsea Stanton, a high school student in New Jersey, who has repeatedly been punished for refusing to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, has finally won her battle, the Cherry Hill Courier Post reports. Stanton, a senior and atheist at Collingswood High School, says she objects to the words "one nation under God," which appear in the pledge. “I couldn’t bring myself to recite it anymore, because I felt like it didn’t respect me,” Stanton told CBS Philly. "I don’t think any student anywhere should have to stand up for this." According to the Cherry Hill Courier Post, she has been sent to administrative offices twice this year for violating the school code of conduct, which requires students to stand for the pledge even if they remain silent. Yet after doing some research, Stanton found that the law was on her side, not the school's. A state provision requiring students to stand was held unconstitutional by the United States Court of Appeals in 1978, but was neve ...

These Are The Latest Stunning Details From The John Edwards Trial
Business Insider - almost 5 years
It just keeps getting worse for disgraced former presidential candidate John Edwards. As the criminal trial to determine whether the former senator knowingly used campaign funds to hide his mistress Rielle Hunter continues, more and more details are being revealed about their sordid affair. Already, we've heard about how Edwards' cancer-stricken wife broke down in an airport hanger after being told of the affair and how Edwards initially labeled Hunter a "crazy slut." And while little has been said to definitively prove Edwards' fault in this whole scandal, it has successfully painted Edwards as a manipulative philanderer. Here is some more of what we've heard: Cheri Young, wife of Andrew Young, the senior aide who initially claimed responsibility for Edwards' love child, testified that Edwards told her and her husband "Nobody cares about two staffers having an affair," while trying to convince him to take the blame. (via ABC News) Young also said that the stress put on ...

    More Details Hide Details He appeared in the film The Still Life in 2006. Matthew Nelson plays a variety of musical instruments, including the bass guitar, electric and acoustic guitars, and piano. The Nelson brothers spent two years learning how to write songs and, in the process, met their mentor, Los Angeles record producer Marc Tanner. Tanner and the twins wrote what would become the triple-platinum After the Rain album in 1990, after being signed to Geffen Records in 1989. Their singles, "(I Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection", "After the Rain", "More Than Ever", "Only Time Will Tell" and "(You Got Me) All Shook Up," all held positions on Billboards Top 40 with "Love and Affection" reaching #1 in September 1990, after receiving airplay on MTV where they also had #1 videos. When "Love and Affection" reached the #1 position on the charts, the Nelsons landed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the only family to have #1 records in three successive generations (their grandfather, Ozzie Nelson, had a #1 hit with "And Then Some" in 1934, and their father, Ricky Nelson, had #1 hits with "Poor Little Fool" in 1960 and "Travelin' Man" in 1962). However, as the British music magazine, NME, pointed out in October 1990, this feat was also achieved by Red Foley, Pat Boone and Debby Boone. Yet, because Pat Boone was the son-in-law of Red Foley, the Nelson family still holds the "Guinness Book of World Records" as Ozzie Nelson, Ricky Nelson, and Matthew Nelson and Gunnar Nelson are of the same bloodline family.
