NEWS Hope Wins…I am Alive CANDLELIGHT WALK FOR SUICIDE VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS By Dee Velasco For the Sun

S

u icide i s a subject t h at i s of t en d i f f ic u lt t o de a l w it h , and much harder to discuss with other people. Whether it’s having to face the loss of a loved one who committed suicide – or even perhaps contemplating suicide – it’s a problem that has grown and there is no better way of addressing it but head on. One way at add ressi ng it was in the form of a candlelight walk that was held Sept. 30, at t he McK i n ley County Courthouse Plaza. The walk was for those who committed suicide and for t ho se who at t empt ed a nd s u r v ive d . T he event was sponsored by The Door

Ga l lup Ch r i s t i a n Cent er. Of course, the goa l of the event was to let the public know that suicide is not the answer, and that someone does care. And that there is hope. Dr. Kof i Sa lla r, a loca l pharmacist who helped organized the event, said even if one per son is touched by the event, it’s well worth the effort. “I don’t think the impact of the event ca n be ea sily mea su red,” he sa id. “Ou r goal was not to necessarily drive down the suicide rates in our community to zero. Our effort is a success if one life is saved because someone was inspired somewhere along the line to intervene in another’s crisis, or if a suicidal individual picked up a phone and called for help.”

Sa lla r gave a n opening add ress a nd ta lked about wa r n i ng sig n s a s wel l a s r i sk fa ctor s t hat ma ke it more likely that someone w ill consider, attempt, or die by suicide. A moment of silence was held for those who have committed suicide as attendees held lit candles in remembrance. “ T here’s help for t hose w h o n e e d i t ,” h e s a i d . “People on the brink of suicide unfortunately may not or ca n not see it that way. W hat rema i n s t hen is t he p er s on a l i nt er ve nt ion of those of us who rema i n – family, friends, or even perfect strangers.” As the event took place, church members handed out resources to those who came to hear about the topic of suicide, but what really stood The Dez family, from left, Taylor, Crystal, Donovan, Ethan, and Cheyenne.

out were those individuals who attempted suicide, survived, and gave their account of what happened. One sur v ivor, Donova n Dez, who was going through the emotions and thoughts of suicide, found himself one night standing on the train tracks here in Gallup. Going through a n x iety, frustration, and panic attacks, he said the world and the people closest to him would be better off without him. That night it was the thoughts of his children that snapped him to reality, and he stepped off of the train tracks in the nick of time. “I knew the truth when it

came down to it; it gave me t h i s u ncom for t able fea r,” he said. “The thought of my daughters at the time living without their father.” Dez says that when life gets hard we must be willi ng to rea ch out becau se the greatest response starts with us. How he felt now, and then addressing his story is both uplifting and scary, he says. “L iber t y su m s up how I felt about sur v iv ing a nd sharing what God has done for me,” he said. “It brought back negative thoughts, had

POLICE ACTIVITY Five incidents of marijuana use, either suspected or real, came to light at Wingate High School this past week. Actually two of the suspects were only 12 and 13 while three others were barely 14. The 13-year old was accused by his friend as being the seller. Two minor incidents of damage to property occurred in Gamerco while a third incident happened outside of a church on State Highway 564. In the latter case, someone had scratched denigrating symbols and expletives into the paint. Several accidents without injuries, 11 in the county, were spread out over a large area, and took the lives of a

dog and a horse. In the four accidents with injuries, only one was bad enough to warrant hospitalization. That was a head-on on Highway 602 between two vehicles where one driver had to be extracted and flown out for care. Three others were transported by ambulances to locl medical facilities. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash. Radios valued at $1,600 were stolen from McKinley County vehicles belonging to the Fire Marshall’s Office. It is not certain when they were taken as one unit had not been checked since Sept. 23 and the other since Sept. 25. A woman was trying to help a former friend, but that plan backfired when he used that contact to allegedly make up a story involving himself and a spurious relationship with her. He continued to verbally harass the woman and her husband, threatening both with physical harm as well as their friends. She has requested a routine patrol of her residence and will submit the saved text

messages from this creeper to the Sheriff’s Office. A couple or three visitors to MCDC showed a spark of aggression when they took turns beating on each other. One of the trio was identified as a recent DWI suspect that was reportedly verbally aggressive towards the police. Two men in Gamerco were visiting in the heart of the afternoon when one got upset and decided to return to his own residence. The other man didn’t like that and he “swang” at the other, cutting the skin near the eye with his right hook. Both had been drinking and the injured party did not want to file charges against the other, so the deputy told them

both to just stay away from each other. Two friends in Jamestown experienced odd incidents in the last two weeks: chickens were released from their coop and were running free, but the owner was able to round them up and put them back where they belonged. Another incident occurred when her friend was driving to work at Western Refinery and a tire/wheel came off his vehicle. And that wraps up most of the police activity for the week.

SHARING IS NOT CARING 2/3 of teens who report abuse of prescription pain relievers are getting them from family, friends or acquaintances. What are the risks? Relying on prescription medication at a young age to help “manage” life’s struggles can establish a lifelong pattern of dependency and prevent teens from learning coping skills. The easiest way for teens to obtain prescription medicines is from their friends or their parent’s medicine cabinet.

DWI, 1st Offense McKinley C o u n t y Sher iff ’s D e p u t y G a r y l l e James made c o n t a c t with Melvin Harvey, 52, when Metro called for a deputy to attend the site of an accident on Cousins Road, about a quarter mile west of Highway 602. The calling party and his sister both filled out witness statements of what they had seen. The driver was so intoxicated that he could not perform any part of the field sobriety test and was arrested immediately. The driver did agree to take a breath test at the MCSO but the readings of 0.28 and 0.26 only ensured the aggravated tag stayed in place. Harvey was transported to the McKinley County Detention Center and booked. Jonathan Duboise Jr. 8:37 pm, 10.08.17 Agg. DWI, 1st Offense W h i l e traveling Nor thbound on State Highway 566 at about the 1.5 milepost, MCSO Deputy L oren zo A . Guerrero noticed a car traveli ng Southbou nd on the same roadway which crossed the yellow line and was in the Northbound lane for a short period of time. Deputy Guerrero made a U-turn and got behind the other vehicle. Near the entrance to Red Rock Park, he conducted a traffic stop. The driver of the car was Duboise, 37, who promptly

refused to attempt the standard field sobriety test and was arrested. Duboise was transported to MCDC and booked. Eddie McCray 11:15 pm, 10.07.17 Agg. DWI, 2nd Offense M C S O D e p u t y L oren zo Guerrero made contact with McCray, 59, who was attempting to turn onto Interstate 40 against the light. Deputy Guerrero made a U-turn and followed McCray onto the Interstate and conducted a traffic stop after about a half mile. McCray stopped next to a guardrail, so Deputy Guerrero used his PA system to ask him to move forward. McCray did not follow those instructions. When asked if he would take a field sobriety test, McCray refused. He did it again when read the NM Implied Consent Advisory, so he was given transportation to MCDC and booked. Josiah Thomas 5:37 pm, 10.04.17 Agg. DWI, 1st Offense Dispatched to a probable accident/DWI on Highway 602 Northbound, M C S O Deputy Josie Bow m a n found the subject vehicle parked near the entrance to Catalpa Hills, facing North, with a white pickup parked in front of it. The vehicle was turned off and the keys had been removed from the ignition by the registered owner. The driver would not give his name when asked, but his dad, the registered owner, did. He was identified as Josiah Thomas, 25, and was supposed

to pick up his father from work, but never showed. The vehicle had heavy damage to the front end and the front left wheel was on its rim. When asked if he had a medical condition that would prevent him from taking the field sobriety test, Thomas said yes he was “drinking.” The testing was soon stopped for safety reasons. Thomas refused all testing. Josiah was transported to MCDC and booked. Trenton K. Ranger 1:35 pm, 10.03.17 Agg.

median, jumped the curb, and almost hit a hospital employee. The car did hit a parked truck. Several witnesses assisted in caring for Ranger, 27, until Officer Soseeah was able to transport him to a local hospital. After GIMC treated Ranger for his injuries and Soseeah read him the NM Implied Consent Advisory, which he declined, Ranger was transported to MCDC and booked for : A g g r avat ed A s sau lt , Criminal Damage to Property, Agg.

The driver of the white SUV behind the silver Chrysler waved the officer down, but as soon as the patrol unit turned on his emergency lights, the Chrysler pulled away from the curb. The vehicle finally stopped at the corner of Aztec and Country Club.

Nez said he was on his way to pick up his brother at Taco Bell East. The witness in the SUV told the officer that Nez had hit the curb three times, once near City Hall, once at Pinnacle Bank, and once at the Junker Bridge. Unable to complete the field sobriety test, Nez did agree to the NM Implied Consent Advisory and gave two samples, 0.20 and 0.19. Holder then contacted the on-call Juvenile Probation Officer Rhonda Goodenough who adv ised him to do the paperwork and then release him to a parent or guardian, forwarding the report to her office. The silver Chrysler was released to his older brother and Holder transported Nez home, where his mother was briefed about the incident and what to expect.

ost of us understand the importance of regular exercise but not all exercises are created equally in terms of their benefit to the body. If you exercise regularly or just getting started the squat is an absolute must for your exercise program. What is the correct hinge and squat position? The most important point to understand about the hinge

Why We Need To Squat

position is that the hinge movement begins at the hip first and not the knees. If you have never knowingly performed the hinge movement before consider the act of pushing your hips back to sit in a chair at the Movie Theater, concert or play. When you push your hips back to find the seat your shins (the bone between your knees and ankle will be nearly vertical or straight). The first thing you do after pushing your hips back over the chair is to slowly lower your butt (squat) until you

make contact with the seat. To get a better sense of the hinge movement take a chair that is the correct height for you and push it up against the wall so that chair does not slide away. Next, slowly practice pushing your hips back until your butt hovers over the chair and then stand up straight. This is the hinge. If you get stuck performing the hinge contact us. What does the correct hinge position tells us? The ability to hinge the hips correctly and squat is a

great indicator of back and spine health. Bending over at the waist should not be confused with a correct hip hinge position. The inability to perform the correct hinge & squat position (placing your butt onto the back of your Achilles/calf area without your heels lifting off the floor) is an indication of poor flexibility along the upper and lower back, and typically results in back, hip and knee pain during exercise or other activities.

Freaky Friday? Parakskevidekatriaphobia originates from the Greek Paraskevi for Friday. This is the technical term for fear of Friday 13th. Remember fear is a matter of perspective and suggestion. For instance, the Celts found 13 lucky. Madame G recommends you take time to examine your perspective and face any fears head on. Now is the time to eliminate negativity.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

So, you’ve seen some stuff. Maybe you’ve headed out into the great unknown and conquered giants. Maybe you only went so far as Phoenix and instead fought yourself. Don’t despair. You may not have accomplished all you imagined, but you’re still conquering clock towers and living an amazing life. Don’t get so trapped in the planning and details you miss the sunrise.

What’s on your mind? You can’t keep shifting and shifting back and forth like a ping-pong ball. You’ll get dizzy and it’ll probably make you anxious and give you ulcers. If you just can’t find the answer, sit down and make a list. The simple task of taking the time for reflection is all you really need. This will help you evaluate the real issue. What is really bothering you?

Bill Gates said that “success is a poor teacher.” Judgement is as well. You may be doing very well one moment and very poorly the next. Stay humble and don’t abuse subordinates.

If you keep wishing on the stars you’ll never get what you’ve always wanted. Only you know what you truly want in your heart. Accept this gift and move forward. The journey will be great.

Where will you go from here? You may feel like despairing of the easy road and your right—there isn’t one. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t do all you set out to do and accomplish more than you ever thought. The only way forward is to take a breath and start walking preferably forward. It’s okay if you start moving sideways and occasionally step back. You’ll get there

You’re excited about the future. There is so much that you can’t wait to accomplish. This is all you’ve ever wanted. Perhaps it feels a little dull once you get there. That’s too be expected.

Your living your life according to your own terms. Don’t let others diminish your joy. This is the life you want and long for. Don’t worry about the days ahead or what you’ll never do. Enjoy the time you have and do what you can. All you can do is accomplish your goals one day at a time step-by-step. The only thing you shouldn’t do is stop. Live and let live!

What will you do now? If you throw caution to the wind, you might just get spit in your face. You can’t just walk into a tornado and not get tossed about. This is reality. You may get around by casually doing what you want, but if you want to help your loved ones communicate your plans. This is the best way not to annoy everyone you know.

WESST’s holiday pop-up shop takes artists beyond workshops By Damon Scott for Finance New Mexico

T

he “pop -up reta il” trend has helped many artists and entrepreneurs sell products and launch businesses in cities throughout the country. Pop-up shops allow artists and retailers to use temporarily donated commercial space to sell wares and land new customers. A lbuq uer q ue’s W E S ST Enterprise Center hosted a holiday pop-up shop last year to showcase its artisan and “maker” clients as part of Manufacturing Day activities. The event was so successful that the nonprofit business development and training

“I commend the Military Suppor t Group Pla n n i ng Committee on their focus to the veterans community,” John said. The Veterans Summit and the Gallup Stand Down was a team effort and it brought the veterans and their families together to mingle among one another and to meet new friends that they never served with, but have served on opposite sides of the globe.

HURCH ROCK - The Milita r y Suppor t Group Pla nning Committee and the City of Gallup hosted the 3rd Annual Veterans Summit and 5th Annual Gallup Veterans Stand Down at Red Rock Park Oct. 5- 6. The two - day gather ing brought together veterans, families, and veterans programs to assist and support veterans’ issues. This year was different from the previous Veterans Summit. The City of Gallup and additional veterans’ entities collaborated with the Military Suppor t Group Pla n n i ng Committee to combine both functions. Day one included several veterans’ affairs programs to come in and present to the participants about their services and what they offer. A wide variety of support services ranged from education, state, Navajo Nation benefits, compensation pensions, traditional components, and a panel discussion. The panel discussion was involved, so the veteran who COMMUNITY

has served can express his and her experiences in the military and how they overcame some of their personal battles and injuries after they were discharged from service. Day two was the 5th Annual Gallup Veterans Stand Down. Ben Welch, Community Services Coordinator for the City of Gallup invited programs from Albuquerque and Gallup to support the homeless veterans with their questions. The original stand down for homeless veterans was modeled a fter the “Sta nd Down” concept used during the Vietnam War to provide a safe retreat for units returning from combat operations; they received personal hygiene products, clean uniforms, medical and dental care, and enjoyed warm meals. “The vendors and veterans’ programs are a very important component for the veteran, because the veteran that is participating needs to know what providers are out there for them. That is important to me,” Welch said. “I am very fortunate to be a part of team that is very-well organized to serve our community. Our northwestern quadrant is in need of these veterans’ events and services.” During the Gallup Stand

Down, the Veterans Summit continued the day with a number of services and training for the participants. Suicide awareness, housing, outpatient programs and the New Mexico State Veteran Cemetery Program talked about their preparations for the future site for a veteran cemetery coming to Gallup that will honor and carry out the tradition of military men and women who

‘The Foreigner’ takes viewers on a compelling journey RATING: ««« OUT OF «««« RUNNING TIME: 114 MIN. By Glenn Kay For the Sun

R

ecently, word came out that Liam Neeson wa s retir ing from performing in tough guy action movies like Taken and Run All Night. Based on the new film The Foreigner, Jackie Chan is attempting to step in and fill the void. This is a grittier, heavier feature and an unusual role for a performer known more for his genial demeanor and good-natured kung fu flicks. The results are imperfect, but compelling enough that one wouldn’t have an issue seeing the performer delving into this type of part again in the future. Chan plays Quan, a seemingly mild-mannered immigrant living in London with his daughter. After a tragic bombing by a faction fighting for Northern Ireland independence, the protagonist dema nds that the Br itish government find the parties responsible. Sympathies are returned, but little progress is made. Little do they know

At first Jackie Chan seems like a laid-back immigrant in “The Foreigner,” but his martial arts skills and acting come out in force as he seeks to avenge the untimely death of his daughter. Photo Credit: STX Entertainment that Quan once served in a special military unit and possesses a particular skill set. Devastated and seeking retribution, the protagonist begins to apply serious pressure to government bureaucrat Liam Hennessy (Pierce Brosnan), who previously held ties to the organization responsible. Again, this is a much darker role for the lead and does offer Chan the ability to develop his acting skills a little more, even

if it only allows for a downcast appearance and series of pained expressions. Brosnan appears to be having some fun as a main foil with contacts within the villainous UDI organization (although if you follow the lips of the actors, they’re clearly saying IRA and have had these bits of dialogue rerecorded). The part provides opportunity for some scenery chewing as the official begins to lose control of the situation.

Hennessy’s frustration at his men’s inability to take out Quan starts to boil over, adding some compelling material. While this is more of a thriller than a true action picture, Chan is offered the opportunity to flex his chops on a few occasions. Director Mar tin Campbell (Ca sino Royale, The Legend of Zorro, Goldeneye) is experienced at shooting sequences and when Quan is forced to come to blows or defend himself, the

movie really springs to life. There’s a dynamic little battle in the confined space of a bed & breakfast that showcases the star tossing foes down the stairways and leaping through tiny windows. There are a few scenes like this that really display the actor’s physical expertise. As the movie progresses, the film does begin to shift focus away from Quan to Hennessy. There are insights revealed about the character’s motivations as well as conspiracies occurring within the faction, but it does feel like an unexpected turn. In fact, it takes at least a half an hour to deal with all of the infighting and political maneuvering within the UDI organization... and none of this actually involves Quan. It’s intriguing material, but viewers will no doubt begin to wonder where the protagonist of the film disappeared to. In the end, The Foreigner has a compelling and agile protagonist and provides an entertaining heel. It’s a bit bumpy in sections and gets lost on a few tangents, but the fisticuffs are well handled and exciting to watch. This is a decent little B-picture thriller that will entertain those still longing for action reminiscent of the recent output of Liam Neeson.

ver thought Groundhog Day might work better as a horror feature? The filmmakers behind Happy Death Day certainly thought so, even referencing the previous movie and making some jokes along the way as if to acknowledge the noticeable similarities. However, beyond a few little wrinkles, this feature doesn’t do a great deal with the concept. If anything, it leaves one with the distinct impression that it would have worked far better had it simply embraced the more humorous and absurd aspects of the story. Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) is a college student with an attitude problem. She’s arrogant and selfish, insulting many of the people she comes across on campus during her birthday.

the day of her death over and over again. As events progress, she befriends student Carter Davis (Israel Broussard), who encourages her to investigate the potential suspects, identify her killer and put a stop to her own demise and the time loop. As it turns out, there are inherent problems with adapting this concept for the horror genre. The tone is a little lighter than the typical scare feature, but it still wants to generate suspense and terror with its mystery killer. Some of the humor works at the midpoint, as the heroine finally begins to comprehend what a truly nightmarish scenario she is in. It sets up a few good gags that showcase the character’s sheer panic and exasperation. A curious and original complication also arises when the protagonist’s friends are knocked off and she must kill herself to reset events. Yet from a story perspective, the movie doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Tree attempts to evade death by taking alternate courses of action, hanging around different suspects, hiding and traveling to various places around the town. Yet somehow, she is always located and murdered. This requires almost superhuman amount of foresight on the part of the killer to consistently pull off the act day after day. There’s also a repetitiveness to the deaths that mute the tension, despite the alternating locales.

Other problems include the creaky dialogue. While it’s never explicitly stated, several of these characters appear to be either medical students, or perhaps biology or physics majors. Yet the group don’t act anything like it. Instead, they behave like high school students, complete with cliques that value wardrobe and attack others based on their weight. I literally had to ask other critics around me why people with these majors would be this superficial and dimwitted. It was suggested that they must have needed some of the characters involved to work at a hospital to justify a plot turn later in the movie. They’re probably right, but the bizarre actions witnessed raise plenty of questions throughout. Maybe it’s just a really, really bad school. Ultimately, nothing much is explained about why the time loop is occurring, nor are reasons given for the strange behavior of the leads. And the climax does little to suppress the ludicrousness. Happy Death Day isn’t a complete disaster and features a couple of chuckles. Still, it’s hard to get involved in the plight of the characters when they aren’t relatable and don’t appear to be reacting to the situation in rational ways. In the end, this is unlikely to be an experience that anyone will want to revisit. Visit: cinemastance.com COMMUNITY


DVD/Blu-ray Roundup for October 13th, 2017

W

elcome back. It’s another big week w it h plent y of great new releases on Blu-ray and DVD... all of the highlights are listed below. So if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

BIG NEW RELEASES! Armed Re spon se In this horror picture, a m ilita r y team disappea r wh i le g ua rd i ng a top secret interrogation facility. When a new group of soldiers arrive to investigate, they come face to face with strange supernatural phenomena that they must battle to survive. Unfortunately, critics disliked this independent flick. They suggested that while the premise offered potential, the screenplay didn’t offer much in the way of character development and ultimately resorted to dull genre tropes. It stars Wesley Snipes, Anne Heche, Dave Annable and Gene Simmons. Baby Driver - The latest from cult director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, The World’s End) involves a young getaway driver working for a criminal outfit. When the hero attempts to break free and finally leave the organization, he’s manipulated into participating in a big heist with some unhinged personalities. The movie was a big hit at the box office and with reviewers. They found it witty and were impressed with the driving stunts, backed by and cut to numerous catchy tunes. The cast includes Ansel Elgort, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm, Elza Gonzalez, Lily James, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx. T h e B e g ui l e d This remake of the eerie 19 71 C l i n t Ea stwood thriller is a per iod ta le set aga inst the backdrop of the Civil War. A soldier from the North is wounded in battle COMMUNITY

and taken in by the residents at a Southern boarding school for girls. Soon, tensions and jealousies arise and events take a very dark turn. Reaction to the movie was positive overall. A few found it a little too reserved and didn’t think it matched the original, but many more called it beautifully shot and atmospheric, with plenty of interesting subtext. It was directed by Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation) and features Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Colin Farrell. Brave New Jersey - Set in 1938, a small town in New Jersey reacts to the famous Orson Welles radio broadcast of War of the Worlds. Believing the Martian invasion described over the airwaves to be real, the characters all react to the crisis in different ways. This independent comedy earned split notices from reviewers. A portion of them found it to be a fun and fluffy concoction with a few good laughs. However, a little more than half thought that it should have been more outrageous and wringed more humor out of the amusing concept. It stars Anna Camp, Sam Jaeger, Raymond J. Barry and Tony Hale. Califor nia Typewr iter - Old-fashioned typewriters are the subject of this docu m e n t a r y. Not only do v iewers learn about the histor y of the writing instr ument, but they meet enthusiasts who describe how this old technology inspires them and hear about why they continue to use it regularly. While this may not seem like dynamic material for a film, the press enjoyed it. The movie has been described as a shaggy but enjoyably loving tribute to a disappearing apparatus that used to be essential piece of equipment. Inter viewees include Tom Hanks, John Mayer and Sam Shepard. Fallen - A teenage girl is accused of a crime she didn’t commit and is sent away to a reform school. Once there, she befriends and finds herself attracted to a boy also attending the institute. As it turns out, he’s a fallen angel, putting

the lead in a difficult position as she attempts to sort out her feelings for him and another being. This movie is based on a young adult novel and didn’t appear to impress critics. A few stated that it was too faithful to its source material, and others complained that it was burdened by over-the-top melodrama and a confusing story. It stars Lola Kirke, Addison Timlin, Joely Richardson and Jeremy Irvine. T h e House - In this wacky come d y, a family discover t h at t he s c hol arship they counted on to pay for their daughter’s university education has been terminated. In an attempt to make up for the lost funding, they start an underground casino in their own home, leading to increasingly outrageous scenarios. The press wrote that viewers shouldn’t place any bets on this one. They commented that despite the talented cast and a few sporadic laughs, the movie was uneven and didn’t land enough jokes to earn it a recommendation. The cast includes Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, Jason Mantzoukas, Nick Kroll, Allison Tolman and Jeremy Renner. The Lure - Here’s an eccentric one. This Polish arthouse horror/comedy (also known as Córki Dancingu) involves a pair of mermaid sisters in Warsaw who join a cabaret. One falls for a man, while the other decides to dine on the human population. Apparently, this feature is also a musical. In general, reviewers enjoyed what they saw. There were a few who couldn’t connect with the story or strange characters, but the vast majority found it stunningly shot and bizarrely hypnotic, noting that while it didn’t always make sense, it was a completely unique viewing experience. It features Marta Mazurek, Micha lina Olsza nska a nd K i nga Preis. Maudie - The biopic c h r on icle s t he l i fe of

Nova Scotia folk painter Maud Lewis. The woman’s struggles with rheumatoid ar thritis resulted in a challenging life, with family and community members thinking of her as little more than a incapable nuisance. After taking up residence with a local outcast, she begins painting, develops more self-confidence and starts to find a fan base for her work. This drama earned solid notices. A few took issue with the abusive behavior on display by some of the characters, but most thought the feature was a winning tribute to the real life artist that boasted an excellent lead performance. The movie stars Sally Hawkins, Ethan Hawke and Kari Matchett. O p e n Wa t e r 3 : C a g e Dive - In this sequel to the 2003 indie film hit, a group of Californians venture to Australia in the hopes of getting themselves cast on an extreme reality show. To do so, they decide to grab their cameras and get up close and personal with some great white sharks during a dangerous cage dive. Of course, everything goes according to plan and they land a TV deal... no, they actually find themselves as fish food. A few scattered voices thought this horror flick provided some thrills, but almost everyone else found the characters unlikable and the exercise tedious. It features Joel Hogan, Josh Potthoff and Megan Peta Hill. Pilgrimage - A group of Monks i n 1209 are given the da ngerous task of transporting a n impor tant religious ar tifact all the way from Ireland to Rome. With Norman invaders approaching, the group must evade capture and make their way to their destination without losing the valuable relic. The press gave this feature more positive reviews than negatives ones. While some found the grim approach a bit of a slog to endure, more countered that it was a reasonably entertaining adventure that moved at a brisk pace. The cast includes Tom Holland, Richard Armitage, Jon Bernthal and John Lynch.

BLASTS FROM THE PAST! There are also plenty of fun, older titles getting upgrades th is week. S h o u t ! Factory have the cult item Dudes (1987) arriving on Blu-ray. It stars Jon Cryer and Daniel Roebuck as a pair of punk music fans who seek justice after their friend (played by Flea) is murdered by rednecks. For many years, this flick has been next to impossible to pick up, reportedly due to music rights clearances. These issues appear to have been resolved. The new Collector’s Edition Blu-ray retains the soundtrack and includes new interviews with the director, stars, writer and producer (these features total nearly 80 minutes) along with publicity materials from its original release. Nice to see this movie finally become available after disappearing for so long. It’s A Mad, Mad, Ma d , Ma d World (1963) is a r r iv i ng on Blu-ray courtesy of Cr iter ion. They’ve gone to town on this release, not only transferring the theatrical version to 4K, but also restoring and including the much longer extended cut. There’s a brand new audio commentary featuring fans and enthusiasts, as well as a documentary on the sound design. Additionally, there are hours of other bonus material included on the disc. It looks like the most thorough and extras-laden release of the movie ever. They also have a Blu-ray of the Orson Welles take on Othello (1951). It also includes 4K restorations of two different cuts of the film, as well a s a n aud io com menta r y from a Welles scholar along with writer/director Peter Bogdanovich. There are also shorts and documentaries along with plenty of other

SPORTS 360 Miyamura Football hosts Bloomfield High in a Bittersweet Contest

The Tigerettes display a sign for Lisa Romero-Muniz. Story and photos by Duane Haven Sun Correspondent

T

he Miyamura Patriots coasted by the visiting Bloomfield Bobcats in Friday night action at Angelo DiPaolo Memorial Stadium in Gallup.

A moment of silence was held for Lisa Romero-Muniz before the game.

It was a bittersweet game played in front of a home crowd who tragically lost a member of the Miyamura High School staff, Lisa Romero-Muniz to the horrific shooting that happened in Las Vegas over a week ago. A moment of silence and a performance by The Tigerettes paid respects to Romero-Muniz

before play Friday night. It was also a very special evening as the crowd was greeted by a ver y special guest, Medal of Honor recipient Hershey Miyamura. The home crowd celebrated Hershey’s birthday with a song and distributed cupcakes to the crowd during halftime.

The Patr iots scored 14 point in the first quarter and 22 points in the second quarter. Miyamura High then held off the Bloomfield Bobcats to six points, which Bloomfield scored in the four th quarter to get on the board. The final outcome, 36 - 6 in the Patriots’ favor, was the sixth straight win for Miyamura this season. Miyamura football head coach Wes Shank is taking one game at a time. The Patriots’ record is not an issue right now. “I’m not worried about

the record right now. Our team strives to get better each week,” he said. Coach Shank is excited and happy how his kids are performing day in and day out. “Our seniors worked hard throughout the workouts and spent a lot of time preparing during the summer,” Shank said. Miyamura will play Gallup (1-5) Friday night on Oct. 13 in conference play at 7 pm. The Bengals will be the home team as action continues at the Angelo DiPaolo Memorial Stadium.

y-owned the way Miyamura’s defense was too much for the Bloomfield Bobcats.
