Play reading set at nexStage

     The nexStage Theatre is offering “Rapture, Blister, Burn” by Gina Gionfriddo for its next installment in a free play-reading series.

     The reading will be Wednesday, May 28, at 6:30 p.m. and admission is free. Complimentary wine and cookies will be served. The cast features Claudia McCain, Freddie Harris, Patsy Wygle, Keith Moore and Savina Barini.

     The running time will be approximately two hours with an intermission.

     The Huffington Post wrote that it’s a “new, roaringly funny satire on the effects of Internet porn on gender politics, the women’s movement and way post-feminism, and the fate of Western civilization. It is also about the self-delusions of people ruefully questioning the youthful life choices that they make.”

     Call the nexStage at 726-9124 for more information.


H-75 configuration to shift next week

     Motorists on state Highway 75 south of Ketchum should expect a shift in lane configuration next week in the vicinity of St. Luke’s Wood River hospital.

     The Idaho Transportation Department announced this week that the change will likely occur on Wednesday, May 28. Newly constructed southbound lanes, as part of a highway widening project, should be completed by then between Hospital Drive and the bridge over the Big Wood River near the hospital. Paving of the new lanes was under way by the contractor, Idaho Sand and Gravel, this week and was expected to be finished by May 28.

     “During the transition, drivers are urged to use extra caution and watch for temporary lane configurations,” ITD stated in a news release.

     ITD reminds drivers that they will get a break from highway construction during the Memorial Day weekend, as any activities that would impact traffic will not be allowed from Friday, May 23, through Monday, May 26.


School receives fruit, veggie grant

     The Idaho State Department of Education announced Wednesday that Woodside Elementary School in Hailey is one of 117 schools in Idaho to qualify for grants under the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s “Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program.”

     The grants allow students to be served free fresh fruit and vegetables during non-meal times. According to a news release, the Woodside School grant is for $18,855.

     The program is intended to provide students with more nutritious food options and to offer children samples of fruits and vegetables that they would not normally have.

     Grant funding is in effect from July 1 to June 30, 2015.
