Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, May 12, 2010 13B ARTS and ENTERTAINMENT 'l00assion for the Land' highlights local rural livelihoods "Restoring Nature's Reservoirs" documents the watershed work of Feather River Coordinated Resource Management. Photo by Heidimarie Carle ,-rt inst uctor to present talk on women's prison program Dianne Lipscomb, profes- sor of art at Feather River College, will present a talk Monday, May 17, at the public library in Quincy, 7 - 9 p.m. She will talk about her paper, "City of Women," that she de- livered in March to an Oxford Round Table symposium on "Women in Academia." The weeklong symposium dealt with various topics on women, scholarship and ad- vancement, as well as barri- ers, in higher education. Lipscomb will also talk about the Irish women's prison she toured following ;-}'1 . . the symposium. Dochas is the only women's prison in the Republic of Ireland. Her paper discusses the incarcerated population at the Central California Cen- ter for Women at Chow- chilla, where the Feather River College Incarcerated Student Program offers an Associate of Arts degree program. Imagine a city of women, 4,000 strong, dressed in blue, confined in a modern fortress, enclosed by electri- fied fences topped by jagged rounds of wire, with court- yards dotted by shooter tow- ers at strategic locations. Life there is unlike life on the outside. CCCW is the largest women's prison in the world, in the heart of the CentralValley: : :i The women detained there -- from every ethnici- ty, spanning a range of ages, and in varying states of health -- are serving sen- tences from relatively short to death row. They live as a large unit of humanity, on the inside of the prison walls, but little is known about them. Eligible women receive academic education, work and vocational training, in the hopes they will success- fully reintegrate into soci- ety. Some program partici- pants will never be released. Add to that picture a small college at the north end of the state, tucked in the Sierra Nevada, some six hours away, that provides the women with a community college degree program, including on-site visits by instructors. The faculty members' peda- gogical experiences are price- less. For the women they serve, books and art become a mental ticket to other worlds beyond the prison walls.

"Passion for the Land," a film about preserving cultural heritage and protecting agricultural lands, will play Tuesday, May 18, at the Town Hall Theatre. Photo by Janet Turner-Johnson Twelve rural residents of Plumas and Sierra counties will tell their stories May 18, at the Town Hall Theatre in Quincy, about the benefits and challenges of agricultural sustainability, resource stew- ardship and the viability of a rural way of life in Northern California's Sierra Valley. Titled "Passion For The Land," the collaborative effort was spearheaded by the Uni- versity of California Coopera- tive Extension local farm ad- visor Holly George and U.C. Davis Art of Regional Change jesikah marie ross. The goal of the project is to help rural residents share stories about preserving com- munity heritage while pro- teCting agricultural lands and natural resources for future generations. The hope is to create aware- ness and stimulate discussion about a variety of issues fac- ing not only Sierra Valley res- idents, but many rural resi- dents throughout America. In addition, the Feather River Coordinated Resource Management's "Restoring Na- ture's Reservoirs" (a 2010 Wild and Scenic Environmen- tal Film Festival selection) will also be shown. The 24- minute film follows the restoration efforts that have been transforming the de- graded mountain meadows in the Feather River watershed. This work has begun to grab the attention of water man- agers restorati0 specialists I I 'ill FREE and policy makers throughout the state. Celebrating 25 years of partnership and restoration experience, the Feather River Coordinated Resource Man- agement group has become a leader in restoration of upper watersheds in the Sierra Nevada. Doors will open at 6 p.m., films begin at 6:30. Refresh- ments will be served. This showing has been made possible by the following partners and donors: Plumas- Sierra Cattleman's and Cattle- woman's Association, Feather River and Sierra Valley Re- source Conservation Districts, USDA Natural Resources Con- servation Service, Farm Bu- reau and the Upper Feather River Watershed Group. i i YARD SALE SIGNS!
