Photo courtesy Side Street ProjectsArt lovers are encouraged to visit the Pasadena Civic Center area to view nine new temporary public artworks now through September 2016 that will enliven the area as part of the “My Pasadena” project funded by a National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) grant. The City’s Cultural Affairs Division of the Planning Department is implementing the project with its partner, Side Street Projects, under the NEA’s Our Town grant program.My Pasadena includes a total of 12 public art projects displayed around the Civic Center on Garfield Avenue, from Walnut Street to Green Street, and on Holly Street, from City Hall to Raymond Avenue. Go to or for project details and dates.On Saturday, April 9, two projects will be available for public enjoyment and interaction, including:• Everyday Monuments, by Hataya Tubtim and Michelle Glass, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., City Hall.Since December, the artists have collaborated with people at the Pasadena Senior Center, Lake Avenue Community Center, Pasadena Mother’s Club and Pasadena High School to create small fiber art that re-imagines Pasadena’s existing monuments and honors significant people, places and events. The collaborative installation is available for one day only.• PopUp Museum by Betsy Medvedovsky and Steve Campos, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., City Hall.Where do you come from and where are you going? How have your origins influenced where you are now? Join the artists for an interactive art installation at City Hall. Bring an object or a story to share; make art, chat and discuss. This will repeat on May 14 and June 11.The goal is to create a series of events and changing artworks to make the Civic Center district more walkable, enjoyable and culturally fulfilling as a creative, vibrant public arts forum that expands community awareness and involvement in the contemporary role of government in civic life.The projects are innovative and varied in inspiration to reflect the diversity of civic engagement themes. Produced in a variety of media, the projects include live performances, walking tours and visual art installations as well as dance, theater, animated projection, oral history and audio sounds.“Just imagine walking down Garfield Avenue on a beautiful evening, encountering 10-foot-tall projections of bright and colorful animated characters,” said Lisa Mann, one of the featured artists, who described her project. “The figures are clearly ‘real’ people: they are moving and talking, yet they are yellow and green, striped and polka-dotted, charcoal smears, and pastel smudges, psychedelic swirls, and geometric patterns, flickering, playful projections, little snatches of My Pasadena!”Side Street Projects is creating a mobile outpost to gather community input, work with the artists to market and publicize projects, and create an archive of images and stories on the program. Other organizations involved include Pasadena Heritage, the City’s Northwest Programs Office, the Pasadena Unified School District, the Pasadena Public Library and Armory Center for the Arts.My Pasadena began last fall with an enchanting multimedia display of projected images and sounds of lions at City Hall and a temporary “parade float” made of recycled yarn exhibited at Paseo Colorado.NEA Our Town My Pasadena Public Art Projects include:(Artist Name, Project Title and Description)1.

Updated: Wanda Tate family home incurs $35,000 damage from Monday’s fire

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — (Updated Tuesday, 9:45 a.m.) A fire destroyed the home of Wanda Tate at 2223 E. Lincoln Monday afternoon. The Wellington Police Department is estimating the damage at $35,000.Wellington Fire Chief Tim Hay said a grease fire in the kitchen caused the house at the Hamel addition in southeast Wellington to eventually be engulfed in flames. At about 4 p.m. Hay said a family member was heating the oven to cook fish and temporarily left the kitchen. When the person returned the kitchen cabinets and wall surface were on fire.“There were three or four people in the house at the time,” Hay said. “They escaped unharmed.”At 4:12 p.m. 12 firefighters from the Wellington, Mayfield and Belle Plaine Fire Departments arrived on the scene at the East Lincoln home at the Hamel addition in southeast Wellington and found the one-story house with heavy smoke and fire showing from the rear of the home.As firefighters began their attack through the front door, flames extended through the door and front windows.They worked their way through the home. The fire had extended into the attic and a hole had to be cut in the side of the house to apply water into the attic area.During the operation an unnamed firefighter fell from a ladder and received an injury to the foot. He was taken to Sumner Regional Medical Center and released. Hay said a hose line may have knocked the ladder down for which the firefighter was perched at the time.The fire was declared under control at 5:57 p.m. The firefighters eventually left the scene at 6:37 p.m.It was a hectic day for emergency personnel. During the incident, firefighters also responded to two medical calls and the transfer was referred to Belle Plaine EMS.There was extensive fire and smoke damage throughout the home. Hay said he did not know if the house was salvageable, but at the minimum it will take extensive repairs. The home was uninsured.The American Red Cross is assisting the family.“They are staying with family,” Hay said of Tate and her family members, who were uprooted due to the fire.People can log onto to make a donation.On the website it states:“Our mother/grandmother Wanda has tragically lost her home and all of her beloved possessions in a fire that destroyed all she had. Please stand with our family as we begin the process of rebuilding and providing for her financial needs during this difficult time. She has been our strength for countless years, now it is our turn to be hers. Please continue to keep her in your prayers.Many blessings,The Tate Family” House fire at 2223 E.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 307 weeks ago +11 Vote up Vote down Jay · 307 weeks ago I may be a bit biased bc this is my grandmother and one of the most remarkable, and influential people in my life. It truly hurts to see this wonderful lady go thru the pain and agony of losing everything. Grandma (Wanda) raised her children, grandchildren, some greats and a few great greats at this location. I know god will never put her thru anything you she can’t handle but she is in desperate need of assistance. If there is anything this community can do to help it would be greatly be appreciated. Grandma has lost everything so anything helps, it’s truly not just about money. If you are interested in donating home items you can contact my at [email protected] We are here for you grandma, love you much, your favorite, g-son!

Praise God that the angels guided all the people out of the house so that no one got hurt or killed. May God give you strength during this very difficult time.

Turning a new page: Mayank Agarwal earns maiden ODI call-up; set to replace Dhawan…

first_imgAdvertisement 237hkNBA Finals | Brooklyn Vs7Wingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E8xzpoa( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 2lzpWould you ever consider trying this?😱9xtyCan your students do this? 🌚82Roller skating! Powered by Firework Mayank Agarwal will replace Shikhar Dhawan in the Indian ODI squad for the series against West Indies with the latter yet to recover from a knee injury. This will mark Agarwal’s second call-up for the white ball format. Advertisement Shikhar Dhawan’s injury suffered at the recently concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali trophy has not healed yet forcing the selection committee to make this call. The left-hander was unavailable for the ongoing T20 series as well with Sanju Samson roped in as a replacement.Advertisement In a media release, the BCCI claimed that Dhawan is close to recovery but not fully fit:“The BCCI Medical Team feels that while Dhawan’s stitches are off and his wound is healing gradually, he still needs some more time before he regains full match fitness,”Advertisement This marks the second occasion this year where Dhawan is ruled out of the team. The Delhi southpaw was forced to withdraw from the World Cup squad after a scintillating hundred against Australia owing to a hairline fracture on his thumb. The injury kept Dhawan out of the World Cup in England.Mayank Agarwal has arguably been one of the most consistent players in the country over the course of the last two years. After making his mark and sealing his place at the top of the order in red-ball cricket, the 28-year-old will look to translate his test cricket success over to limited overs.This will be the second occasion where Agarwal will be a part of the Indian white-ball squad after already been called-up for the World Cup earlier this year as a replacement for the injured Vijay Shankar. It seems to be seen whether Agarwal will be thrown right into the mix alongside Rohit Sharma or will KL Rahul get the nod ahead.The three-match ODI series will commence from December 15 with Chennai, Vishakapatnam, and Cuttack given the hosting rights.Here’s the updated Indian contingent for the 3 match ODI series:Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma (vice-capt), Mayank Agarwal, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shivam Dube, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.Read Also:Find out what Kevin Pietersen and Brian Lara have to say about Rishabh Pant’s place in the Indian Cricket Team!Ravi Shastri warns off rumour mongers: Don’t mess around with MS Dhoni’s plans!
