Minn. Extension spread thinner after layoffs

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – University of Minnesota Extension laid off about 44 percent of its Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education employees on Jan. 14 in response to diminishing funding.

Until now, University Extension has avoided layoffs in SNAP-Ed, which works in tandem with the government program formerly known as Food Stamps. The program educates low-income people who are on a limited budget about active lifestyles and healthy choices.

Before the cuts, 109 community nutrition educators worked with Minnesota’s 87 counties, with at least one part-time educator in almost every county. Now, some educators may have to cover up to four counties… Read More

The Tales of Henry

A true love for music has guided Henry Akina, Hawaii Opera Theatre’s first Hawaiian director, through more than 120 operas over a 30-year career.

Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffmann will be the last opera that Henry directs for HOT, before retiring from his role as Artistic Director, which he has held for 20 years. The production will be performed on April 21, 23, and 25 at the Blaisdell Concert Hall.

In a 2002 HOT concert program Henry wrote: “The opera is but one art form where we can go beyond everyday life to look at some of its mythologies and gain insight into the lives of other characters, and thus into our own.”

With this in mind, the Tales of Henry will look back on Henry’s life and career… Read More
