At Your Service ‘Church Basement Ladies’ Opens July 19
The good ladies from the East Cornucopia Lutheran Church of the Prairie will be on hand to serve up a heapin’ helpin’ of musical comedy fun when ‘Church Basement Ladies’ hits the stage on July 19. As the second offering of Brainerd Community Theatre’s summer season, the beloved show runs through the 21st and picks up again for three more performances July 25-27. All shows are at 7:30 p.m. in the Chalberg Theatre on the Brainerd campus of Central Lakes College.
BCT Producer Patrick Spradlin included ‘CBL’ in the season because of its rich theatrical history. “The 'CBL’ series of musicals resonate with our audiences, especially those from a Lutheran upbringing,” says Spradllin. ‘With the numerous Minnesota cultural references you don’t need to be Lutheran to enjoy this show.”
The show was written by Jim Stowell and Jessica Zuehlke, inspired by the books of Janet Letnes Martin and Suzann Nelson, authors of the best-seller “Growing Up Lutheran.” The music and lyric were penned by Drew Jansen.
Crosslake City Council to Study Expanding Sewer System
The Crosslake City Council took action at its regular monthly meeting Monday, July 9 to study the possibility of expanding the city’s sanitary sewer system.
The Council voted to spend up to $7,300 to have the engineering firm of Bolton and Menk conduct a preliminary engineering report to consider connecting Moonlite Bay and Moonlite Square properties to the existing sanitary sewer system. The report will identify preliminary cost estimates of the project and a proposed implementation schedule. It will also include a preliminary estimate of improvement assessments for the proposed improvements. Currently, the city has no utility assessment policy. The report will be ready for review by the Council at its August meeting. If the Council decides to move forward, it would probably put the project in the 2019 budget.
On a broader scale, the Council also approved spending up to $15,650 to have Bolton and Menk complete a citywide wastewater management study. In 2004 the city installed phase one of the current sanitary sewer system. Since that time, questions have been raised about expanding the system.
