In The Community: Last night we held the reception for Two Generations Merle Olson & Darlene Olson Morgan's show at the Hockaday Museum, plus a "related" photography exhibit by Michael and Robert Livsey at a new place, Gallery 344 on Main Street, run by our friend Ed Gilliland.
(From the Hockaday's Website) Merle Olson (1910-1999) sought to “paint the landscape uncluttered by man...the serene and restful beauty, the grandeur of the land.” Both a painter and sculptor, she lived in Bigfork and exhibited around the country. Merle Olson’s daughter Darlene Morgan began drawing and painting at a very young age. In her paintings of Native Americans and other western themes, Darlene uses India ink in an ink wash, creating very detailed images that are sometimes mistaken for photographs.
Not by ME -- but they're nice anyway -- take a look: Exhibits at the Hockaday Museum of Art

I'm trying hard to edit Flathead Community College's Current Events show in time to get it on the cable service in time to promote the theater department's production of Ira Levin's Deathtrap, which is opening next week.
Media Watch: I looked all over the Sci-Fi Channel, but I couldn't see Dubya's speech on the schedule there, where it belonged.
(From DailyKos.com) Lights in New Orleans. For Bush. by kos Fri Sep 16th, 2005 at 09:24:17 PDT
I am duty-bound to report the talk of the New Orleans warehouse district last night: there was rejoicing (well, there would have been without the curfew, but the few people I saw on the streets were excited) when the power came back on for blocks on end. Kevin Tibbles was positively jubilant on the live update edition of Nightly News that we fed to the West Coast. The mini-mart, long ago cleaned out by looters, was nonetheless bathed in light, including the empty, roped-off gas pumps. The motorcade route through the district was partially lit no more than 30 minutes before POTUS (President of the United States) drove through. And yet last night, no more than an hour after the President departed, the lights went out. The entire area was plunged into total darkness again, to audible groans. It's enough to make some of the folks here who witnessed it... jump to certain conclusions.
No jumping required to reach those conclusions.
