Drama (Weitz Theater)

Fri., Oct. 20     7:30    Carleton Players: “The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui”

Chicago, 1930s: the “Cauliflower Trust” is making a move to conquer the vegetable trade when petty criminal Arturo Ui concocts his protection racket.  After a reign of terror, Ui emerges as an undisputed mob boss and king of the vegetable monopoly.  Bertolt Brecht’s play is much more than a simple gangland comedy, however.  Written in the early 1940s, the play is also a thinly veiled allegory of the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Third Reich, told through the borrowed plot of Shakespeare’s Richard III.

Eclipse of the blood moon

Seldom are conditions so perfect as they were on Sept. 27 for a total lunar eclipse.   These photos were taken with Nikon D 7000 and 400 mm telephoto lens,  with multiple different f stops and speeds,  then assembled with Pic Monkey software.    Enjoy—–Ed

Pigeon Feathers

I thank my wife for putting this story together.

For several weeks in June,  this beautiful pigeon  was seen scrounging for food  between 3rd and 4th streets,  in Nevada and Maple yards.   On June 16  she stood for  6 hours on rocks in our home’s area well.   A photo of her revealed she had bands on her ankles.   We called various sources  to learn that pigeon bands meant she was a racing bird,  and was lost.    She was apparently dehydrated , unfed and not flying,  an easy  prey for hawks or owls.

She was caught and placed in a bin with grass, sunflower seeds and water while we tried to find a pigeon racing club person who would take her.

A man from Faribault,  who has a flock of racing pigeons,   gladly came   and picked her up.    He races birds in 100 or 400 mile races.   Below is a photo of this pigeon with   friendly chipmunk  taken  before the daring rescue.

Our Friends, the Barred Owls
