Stage and Screen: Who wants to be a Millionaire? – Woody Grant does
“Nebraska” (2013) has been described as a comedy. While there are some very funny moments in this “Lake Woebegone” variety film, it is not a side-splitting comedy. Au contraire, “Nebraska” is a serious story about aging, a misspent life, alcoholism and, most notably, serious love and concern demonstrated by a son for his largely undeserving father. Many of the humorous moments are uncomfortable and come at the exp...

USFWS will try again to remove Chirikof cattle
The USFWS is looking for a few cowboys. Some hunters might do. So could a savvy rancher or butcher — anything, really. As the Fish and Wildlife Service prepares for another attempt to remove cattle from Chirikof and Wosnesenski islands, it’s asking for the public’s ideas. The cattle were brought to the remote islands by ranchers, but the ranches are gone and the cattle have turned feral. “On these two islands, the...
