Newspaper Column for February 13, 2020

Our Thursday Morning Conversations community hour is making a return this month. On February 13 at 10 am we will welcome Green Lake mayoral candidate Ray Radis and on February 20th Mike Ratter will come share stories and answer questions about his time as the police Chief. We will provide coffee and donuts; you bring the curiosity and conversation. We’re looking forward to seeing you!

What did you think of those Oscars results? If you missed it, Parasite was the big winner taking four out of six nominations, including Best Picture and Director. If you missed seeing the film during our tour the past few weeks, you are welcome to put it on hold to take home and experience for yourself. Next up on our Road to (and beyond) the Oscars, is Ford v. Ferrari which won Best Film Editing and Best Sound Editing. Come see if you think it deserved it, today February 13th at 1 pm.  Then on Tuesday, February 18 at 6 pm and Thursday, February 20 at 1 pm, we are on to A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and the week after that will be Knives out.

We know the Road to the Oscars movies are a local favorite and we also know that crinkly popcorn bags can make the movie hard to hear. We have moved the volume up a few more notches but also want everyone to know that the lower level is equipped with a hearing loop. A hearing loop helps persons who use hearing aids that are equipped with T-Coils to hear sounds from a PA system directly and clearly in the hearing aids, because it reduces or cuts out background noise. If you have hearing aids and you turn on your T-Coil during our movies, you might now have the best sound in the house! If you don’t have hearing aids but would still like to cut out the background noise, we have one hearing loop receiver kit available upon request.
