Summer Camp, Day 5! Bernadette Peters Channels The Golden Girls

first_img LOOK OUT FOR… 2:07. “Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you,” Bernadette! View Comments We’re gonna be honest: Things around the offices have gotten really boring the last few weeks. It’s sweltering, it’s humid, and worst of all, no new Broadway shows open until after Labor Day. But never fear, dear readers, we’ve got a great way to spice up the month of August: Summer Camp! Each day for 31 days, we’re highlighting the campiest, craziest, wildest—and did we mention campiest?—videos we can find. Put on your gaudy bathing suit and dive in! Bernadette Peters OVERALL CAMP FACTOR 10 out of 10 glittery lavender bustiers. Obviously.center_img MOST GIF-ABLE MOMENT Star Files WHY WE LOVE IT If there’s one thing we know, it’s Broadway. If there’s another thing we know, it’s The Golden Girls. It doesn’t get much better than hanging out in Miami with our besties Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia…oh, except this delightfully tacky video of Bernadette Peters in purple silk genie pants, singing the show’s theme song, “Thank You For Being a Friend” at her 1979 concert. We know, we know, the hit series didn’t premiere until 1985, so Peters is really covering Andrew Gold’s version of the song, but still. She’s a pal and a confidant.last_img read more

LUMA faces uncertain future after a loss in sponsors

first_imgEven with the bad news, Bernard says they’re still working on solutions in hopes of bringing back the event next year. (WBNG) — LUMA, the projection light show that dazzles downtown Binghamton may not go forward in 2020. “We are still speaking behind the scenes to the folks that had to pull out to see if anybody else is out there, to see if anybody else can increase their sponsorship,” said Bernard. “It’s a very difficult time.” “The economy has just retracted so much due to COVID-19 that people weren’t able to come through on their commitments,” said Joshua Bernard, co-founder of LUMA. Including sponsors, the festival also relies on money from the community through kickstarter funding. With many sponsors backing out, sole funding from a kickstarter wouldn’t be enough according to Bernard. “Traditionally, a kickstarter only makes up a portion of what it costs to do LUMA each year. Even if we were able to raise that amount of money, it wouldn’t alone allow us to move forward,” said Bernard. With more than one hundred sponsors, some backed out, including their biggest supporter. center_img Typically, the event draws tens of thousands every year. According to LUMA’s website, the estimated one-night impact of the event is around $900,000. Organizers say a cancellation would be a huge loss. “It’s devastating to us that we’re in a position now this late, this close to when we were going to launch our features, that we just can’t move forward and it puts a real question mark about the future of LUMA,” said Bernard. “It really put us in an incredibly difficult position, because we were already halfway through these projects, we had a number of contracts with artists,” said Bernard. With the loss in sponsors this year, LUMA’s future looks even more grim, organizers say it may be over for good.

Man OK’d to attend City Council sessions

first_imgA Duarte man who was barred from attending Irwindale council meetings has won his day in court and plans to show up at the City Council meeting tonight. A Pomona Superior Court judge ordered James Hunley on June 29, 2005, to stay 10 yards away from Edith Alvarado, a business clerk at Irwindale City Hall who also attends council meetings. If Hunley, 56, wanted public records, he had to make an appointment and have a police escort. A court of appeals judge on Feb. 16 reversed the lower court’s decision. “I don’t think the city’s interest is to keep citizens from addressing matters of public concern. This is a win for the little guy, because I went up against the big guns on my own, did my filings myself,” said Hunley. City Attorney Fred Galante said Hunley came into City Hall and was verbally abusive to Alvarado when she was alone with him. Hunley denies those charges. Galante said Alvarado was intimidated. “She didn’t feel comfortable arguing with him when no one else was around,” Galante said. Galante said it would be up to Alvarado whether the city appeals. Hunley has been a thorn in Irwindale’s side, continually challenging public officials over code enforcement issues and the right to public information. A federal judge on June 5, 2002 threw out a $92,000 lawsuit in which Hunley alleged Irwindale officials violated his constitutional rights by selectively enforcing code guidelines. Hunley was ejected from an Irwindale storage yard for having inoperable vehicles; he claimed then-Mayor Mark Breceda and other residents also stored inoperable vehicles on their properties but were never cited. In December 2002, Hunley filed a $5 million claim against Breceda and other city officials.
