Pequot Lakes Community Theatre to present The Addams Family, A New Musical

Pequot Lakes Community Theatre will present The Addams Family, A New Musical on February 22, 23, and March 1, at 7:30 p.m. Also, February 24, March 2, and 3, at 2 p.m. in the Pequot Lakes High School auditorium. Meet the Artists of the Addams Exhibit February 22nd before the show and during intermission. Talkback sessions are scheduled after the performances on February 24th and March 2nd.

As the curtain rises, the last dead leaf of autumn falls from the Family Tree, and all is right with the morbid, macabre world of Gomez (Ben Gordon, Pine River), Morticia (Kate Davis, Pequot Lakes), Fester (Dalton Ebnet, Pequot Lakes), Grandma (Jen Anderson, Pine River), Wednesday (Nicole Rothleutner, Pequot Lakes), Pugsley (Josh Anderson, Brainerd) and Lurch (Sam Moreland, Breezy Point). They’ve gathered – where else? – in the family graveyard, to celebrate life and death in a yearly ritual to connect with their past and ensure their future.

They seem at peace, not just with each other and their inimitable, unchanging Addamsness, but with their dead ancestors, too (Phylipe Bell, Bobbi Cruikshank, River Curtis, Lola Eastwood, Brianna Engels, Gracin Johnson, Susan Langins, Rachel Martin, Heather Pearson, and Nikoa Perkins) – who emerge from their graves on this night each year to join in this celebration of continuity. But, at the end of the ritual, Fester blocks the ancestors’ return to their graves. Those unchanging Addams family values are about to be tested.

Manhattan Beach City Council debates parcel filing system

Much of the February 5 regular meeting of the Manhattan Beach City Council was spent discussing the best way to file parcels of land in the city’s filing system. Mayor Paul Allen and Council members Janis Allen, Betty Worts, and Amy Wannebo, City Clerk and Treasurer attended the meeting.

Mayor Allen opened the discussion by announcing that Crow Wing County has adopted a new numbering system for each parcel of land in the county that will require the city to change its current filing system that files parcels by number. He suggested that in addition to changing the parcel numbers to match the new county numbers the city should also include the names of the property owners, and then arrange the files in alphabetical order rather than in numerical order by parcel, as is now the case. He said members of the Planning and Zoning Commission could more easily access the files if they were arranged this way.
