More movie magic at the Magic Lantern
    On Thursday, April 4, at 7 p.m., Movie Club at The Magic Lantern Cinemas will present Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.”
    The 1960 American suspense/horror film stars Anthony Perkins, Vera Miles, John Gavin and Janet Leigh. The screenplay by Joseph Stefano was based on the 1959 novel “Psycho” by Robert Bloch.
    “Psycho” is one of Hitchcock’s most notable films and in 1992 was selected by the U.S. Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry. “Psycho’s” shower scene is considered one of movie history’s scariest moments and “Psycho” is rated as one of the greatest movies all of time by the American Film Institute.
    “This seminal Hitchcock film is a timeless film that continues to find new audiences within every generation of movie lovers,” said Rick Kessler, owner of the Magic Lantern Cinemas. “‘Psycho’ is an experience worth every frame to watch—a seminal cinematic work, studied in every film school.  If you’ve never seen this classic or if you’ve never experienced it in a theater on a large screen with an audience, get in line now.”
    Tickets for Magic Lantern Goes “Live” and The Center film series screenings are $10 for Center members and $12 for nonmembers. Movie Club tickets are $5. All tickets will be available starting at 4:30 p.m. on the Monday of the week of the screening at the Magic Lantern Cinemas box office.

“The Not for Profit Dilemma” seminar at CSI in Hailey
    Carol Bowser, an attorney with mediation training, will lead a seminar on communication and conflict management for nonprofit organizations at the College of Southern Idaho Blaine County Center on Wednesday, April 10, from 2:30-4:30 p.m.
    The seminar, titled “The Not for Profit Dilemma,” will focus on communication challenges and potential conflicts common to nonprofit organizations. Bowser will discuss how to spot issues before they become problems and what to do about them. She’ll provide guidance on how to have important conversations with staff, volunteers and board members, and how to cultivate a culture of authenticity and respect.
    Bowser’s company, Conflict Management Strategies, is based in Puyallup, Wash., and provides consulting services to nonprofit organizations throughout the Pacific Northwest.
    The conflict management seminar is the third in a series called the Nonprofit Education Initiative, which aims to help local nonprofit organizations strengthen their infrastructure, foster professional development and enhance relationships across the community.
    “This seminar provides a great opportunity for staff, board members and volunteers of local nonprofits to think about strengthening the human resources and relationships that are integral to any organization’s success,” said Jenny Emery Davidson, director of the CSI Blaine County Campus.
    The seminar will be held in the Minnie Moore conference room at the Community Campus in Hailey. Tuition is $20 for the single seminar for people who have not registered previously for the full seminar series. Advanced registration is required through the CSI Blaine County Center: 788-2033.

Annual spring corporate food drive helps families in need
    It’s time for the Spring Corporate Food Drive, a chance for businesses to help fill the shelves at The Hunger Coalition.
    Participants this year include Sun Valley Resort, Power Engineers, St. Luke’s Wood River, Idaho Mountain Express, Wood River High School, Zenergy at Thunderspring, Webb Landscape and Marketron. All are vying for the coveted Golden Can Award for the most pounds of food and/or money collected.
    The Hunger Coalition is facing the Hunger Season, when need is at its highest and food donations plummet, leaving people at risk of going hungry.  The Spring Corporate Food Drive is a critical event for refilling empty warehouse shelves. By contributing to one of the businesses listed above, people can make a difference in the health and well-being of Blaine County.  
    People can also participate from the comfort of their own home. Simply go online to and make a financial contribution in the name of a participating business.  The Hunger Coalition stated that thanks to partnerships with local and statewide food distributors, dollars are stretched more than six times farther than a normal shopping trip could provide.  
    The most needed food items include canned fruits and vegetables, hot and cold cereal, canned tuna and healthy snacks for kids.
