Kaemmer Family Gallery:

Failure and Virtuosity: Contemporary Queer Video – through Apr. 27 – Highlights work of queer video makers in the generations following pioneer filmmaker Jack Smith’s revolutionary incursions into visual culture. They share with Smith a belief in the utopian potential of queer aesthetics to remain separate from the strictures of heteronormative society. In some cases, this means forwarding a sense of queer community that offers a distinct and realizable alternative to what we have come to see as family. In others, queer artists have mined the formal means of video as a medium to divert this mass media format towards other ends. In short, these artists all fail to live up to sociocultural expectations of how they should act, but they fail with absolute virtuosity.

When Blanche’s past is revealed, she slips deeper into psychosis as Stanley closes in. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1948, A Streetcar Named Desire is considered by most dramatic literary scholars to be a foundational text that contributed to the emergence of Post WWII modern American Theater.

Women March on Washington

Apr. 14, 7:30pm and Apr. 15, 2pm Northfield Arts Guild Theater A full-length stage play based on the women’s marches on Washington of 1913, 1978 and 2017, using historical and fictional characters. Bags packed, they head out across the country (and over decades) to the nation’s center of power. What will they bring? White gloves and a Bible? Heavy boots and the Pill? A pink hat? A hijab? The diverse travelers encounter suffragist Alice Paul, early civil rights leader Ida Wells-Barnett, 1970’s ERA proponents (and opponents) and women of today. Battling enormous obstacles, including their own doubts and disagreements, all arrive in Washington together, asking: “Whose march is it?” and “What are the stakes?” Women March on Washington is a new play in development and will be presented script-in-hand. The rehearsal and reading of the script are invaluable parts in the process of the script revision and development. Tickets: $5, available at northfieldartsguild.org, 507/645-8877 or at the Northfield Arts Guild. My Man Godfrey

Apr. 20-22, 27-29, F/Sa 7:30pm, Su 2pm Little Theatre of Owatonna Directed by Jon Terrill. In the depths of the Depression, Godfrey, a “forgotten man,” is rescued from his packing-crate home by ditzy socialite Irene Bullock during the course of a scavenger hunt. Irene offers Godfrey a job as butler to the banking family of Bullocks. Godfrey tolerates their eccentricities, alcoholism and general nuttiness. Irene and Molly, the pert Irish maid, both fall in love with Godfrey, but for Irene it’s serious – and she’s determined to get her man. Falsely accused by Cornelia of stealing the famous Bullock Pearls, Godfrey uses the opportunity to recover his personal finances and, when the Bullocks end up going broke, rescues them by getting them all (gasp!) jobs in The Dump, a new nightclub Godfrey has built to provide work for his friends and for the Bullocks, too. Tickets: $16 adults, $14 students, available at 507/451-0764, at the box office, or at littletheatreofowatonna.org starting the Saturday before the show opens. Shakespeare’s Infinite Women

Apr. 22, 2pm FiftyNorth (Northfield Senior Center) Free and open to the public. Donations to FiftyNorth appreciated. The King’s New Clothes

Apr. 21, 2pm Special performance Northfield Public Library Followed by quick, fun theater exercise. All ages welcome. Apr. 27-28, 7:30pm; Apr. 28-29, 2pm Northfield Arts Guild Theater A delightful retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen story. The vain and childish king is duped by schemers who convince him that they can make him a unique suit of clothes that is not only beautiful, but magical – it can only be seen by those who are honest. What will happen when the king is presented with his new threads? The King’s New Clothes is a funny and fast-paced parable about pride, delusion and human nature. Great for all ages. Tickets: $6, available at northfieldartsguild.org, 507/645-8877 or at the Northfield Arts Guild.

Rice County Historical Society, Faribault Bandolier bags, or gashkibidaaganag – the large, heavily beaded shoulder bags made and worn by several North American Indian tribes around the Great Lakes – are prized cultural icons here and around the world. From the 1870s to present day, Ojibwe bead artists of Minnesota have been especially well-known for their lively, creative designs. Neighboring Dakota people would trade a pony for a beautiful beaded bag. Over the years the bags have been bought up by non-Indian collectors and ethnographers, struck by the bags’ cultural significance and visual appeal. Today, there are hundreds of bags in museums around the world, but not so many in the hands of community members. In A Bag Worth a Pony, Marcia G. Anderson shares the results of 30 years of study in which she learned from the talented bead artists who keep the form alive, from historical records and from the bags themselves. Anderson examines the history, forms, structure and motifs of the bags, providing tools to understand a bag’s makeup and meaning. Theater: And Then There Were None • 7:30pm

Are microbes GROWING in your walls?

By Kari Ripley, CCS Cleaning

It may start as an odor, maybe a stain that you hadn’t noticed before, but before long you realize that there is definitely a moisture problem causing issues in your home. Many times, the issue arises from water traveling to places it shouldn’t: a leaky pipe under the second story tub causing water stains on the main level ceiling below; a tub or sink overflow in another apartment unit that wasn’t dried properly and is now causing issues in a shared wall; a sump pump failure from last spring that you thought you took care of, but now see signs of microbial growth on the walls. While there are certain types of mold spores commonly occurring in both air and on surfaces of any normal living space, an overabundance or the presence of certain kinds are the cause of health concerns, especially to the elderly, very young or health-compromised. For this reason, it cannot be stressed enough how important it is to make sure any water losses or moisture issues are dealt with immediately and professionally. When choosing a professional, make certain the company is certified with the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) and has the

april 2018

proper moisture meters to detect water trapped in ceilings, in between walls or under floors. Even though a wall, floor or ceiling may look dry and feel dry to the touch, the danger of allowing moisture to stay trapped behind these surfaces without air flow is costly and detrimental to one’s health. Without determining the source of the elevated moisture, stopping the source and drying out the affected areas, microbial growth is certain. Also, most insurance companies will cover the expense to dry down and repair a home after a water loss while many DO NOT cover mold remediation services. Even though it may seem like a headache dealing with home water issues now, it is far more stressful and costly to deal with mold concerns later. An ounce of prevention. It is also a good idea to regularly check your roof for ice dams in the winter and your basement for any encroaching water during the spring. This will help keep your premiums down by catching issues before they arise and keeping your home safe from water and mold problems. Kari Ripley is IICRC Certified for Water and Fire Restoration.

SOCIAL NETWORK PLANTING By Amy Voight A Team Landscaping, Inc Our human social networks can complement our everyday lives by helping us achieve success, pushing us to go further, lifting us up in encouragement or just being a listening ear when we need to vent. Our chosen online platforms help us to mingle with others that have similar interests and invite them into our lives. Plants do the same type of thing, and harmony describes the plant world social network. When plants are thoughtfully chosen and planted, management becomes less stressful because the focus can be on the whole garden instead of individual plants. This concept of plant communities instead of individual elements creates sustainable gardens that use less water, are visually stimulating and require less maintenance overall once established. The use of “green mulch,” which refers to groundcover plants, shades the soil and aids in preventing weeds and loss of water due to evaporation. Some of the great plants that fit the groundcover category are: low sedge grass such as Pennsylvania Sedge, strawberries, self-seeding columbines, woodland poppies and prairie dropseed grass. Your garden can reflect your personality just like your profile and/or picture on your social network site does. Color choices, accent pieces, leaf shapes and more can all play a role in representing your creative self (or, with the help of a landscape designer, the creative person you are deep down).

“Garden plants evolved from diverse social networks.”

– Thomas Rainer, Landscape Architect

Plants have grown in their communities since the beginning of time and do many things in support of each other. Think of prairies and how grasses and wildflowers combine to create expanses of “groundcover” in the heat of full sun and blowing wind. Prairies usually fade into woodland edges (often called savannahs) and different set of plants are present with the introduction of shade. Woodlands then rely on a high tree canopy that creates shade almost the entire day to the understory trees and shrubs, ferns, wildflowers and sedges at the forest floor. These inspirations in nature can be applied to our own urban plantings that surround our homes and businesses and through creative design and educated choices will be beautiful and sustainable. As you think about your landscape and gardens this year, find out how your current plants (or desired new

ones) can benefit from giving them a “social network”’ and implement the right community for the long-term health of the environment. Also take time to sit and recharge, observe the “community” in your own yard and learn from the interactions within nature that seem so simple yet can be highly complex but take place for the ultimate health of all its members.

Cool Tree Varieties For Our Urban Forests By Leif Knecht Knecht’s Nurseries & Landscaping

Adding cool and different varieties of trees to our yards will do a lot to improve the health, diversity, and beauty of our urban forests, and will probably increase your property value. Distinctive features add value to our homes, and amazing trees can be part of what sets your property apart. The following trees have not been widely planted, but are tough and beautiful trees that will make your place one of the coolest in the neighborhood. A nice added feature is that different varieties of trees add to the genetic diversity of the urban forest, making it more resilient and healthy. Autumn Gold Ginkgo Distinguished by a lovely symmetrical and strong herringbone branch structure that offers great beauty even in winter. Able to grow well, even in very difficult soils. Brilliant gold fall color. A seedless variety that matures gradually to 50' tall and 30'-40' wide.

Yellowwood A medium-sized ornamental tree that produces showy and very fragrant white flowers in large clusters each spring. Able to tolerate alkaline clay soils. At 25' tall x 25' wide, Yellowwood is a good fit for most urban lots. Avoid gravely/sandy soils. Full sun preferred. Ancestry Oak A versatile and fairly fast-growing hybrid of our native Bur Oak, English Oak and other oaks. A good way to add diversity as we face the challenge of Bur Oak Blight attacking our mature trees. Will become a full-sized shade tree of 45' tall x 40' wide. Grows vigorously in all soils except wet areas. True North Kentucky Coffeetree This new northern hardy strain is seedless, can grow on a wide variety of soil types, and will grow to become a stately shade tree of 50' tall x 40' wide. This tree is not the source of our morning brew, but is a tough and lovely seedless shade tree.

Ice Dragon Korean Maple An incredibly beautiful small tree with the most finely textured cutleaf foliage I have ever seen. A stunning landscape specimen. Sure to be the star of any garden. Plant in part sun/part shade, and properly drained soil. Gradually matures to 8' tall by 15' wide. Hardy enough for our Zone 4 climate.

Minnesota Strain Redbud My favorite flowering tree. This strain, selected by the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, has proven hardy enough for southern Minnesota and explodes in early spring with hundreds of bright magenta/purple blossoms that are 100 percent visible because they come long before any leaves. A standout ornamental tree of medium size – 20'x20' in Minnesota.

“...different varieties of trees add to the genetic diversity of the urban forest, making it more resilient and healthy.”

When should i sell my home? By Brian Trebelhorn, Realtor Re/Max Advantage Plus ...A common question that is asked of Realtors, a good question, and one with a variety of answers. There are a few factors that determine a good time to sell your home but, ultimately, the best time is whenever it’s best for you, as circumstances outside the real estate world dictate – an addition to the family, more space needed, a job relocation, a change in marital status, etc. For those that are always ready and get anxious after living in the same home for a period of time (yes, there are plenty of homeowners who move simply because they’re bored), there are better times to sell than others. I’m referring primarily to the time of year. There was once a time when the spring and into summer was considered the strongest. That is still a strong time of year to sell, but the kickoff to the hot real estate market time of year is gradually shifting to shortly after the New Year. Almost like a switch being turned on, Realtors can count on the second week or so of January for the phones to light up and the inbox and text messages to start to fill up as people are ready to start looking for homes after the dust of the holiday season has settled.

For Everything Real Estate!

From mid-January until Memorial Day, you can plan on it being a good time of year to put your home on the market. There are still peaks and valleys during those months, most notably spring break and Easter, and then there’s the weather. In a state where the weather can change almost hourly, you’d be surprised at how much it still controls our lives. If it gets cold, the activity slows because nobody wants to go out in the cold.

it warms up, people want to play in the sun, so it slows down again. Weather is a surprisingly big factor when it comes to people searching for homes. For diehard home buyers, weather will not slow them down but, for most buyers, it is a big factor. After Memorial Day, we enter the summer months. The summer months are always pretty active, but somewhat surprisingly (at first glance) July is actually the slowest month of the year, historically and statistically. If you think about it, it does make sense, though. July the only month of the year where there is no school or school activities for the entire month. In June we have the end of the school year and graduation and, in August, we have the back-to-school sports practices and other activities prepping for the new school year. That makes July the month that many people go on vacation. When we enter the fall and winter months, you can plan with almost absolute certainty a big slowdown at the end of August and into mid-September, for all the back-to-school activities and, of course, the last hurrah of the summer, Labor Day weekend! Once the dust settles from all that, there is almost always a resurge of sorts that sparks people to become active again. The kids are back in school and the family routine gets restored. Here again, the weather can play a role, but it is common for some people to want to get into a home before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season starts, as well as trying to beat the snow. Because of that, like clockwork, you can plan on a pretty significant surge around mid-September until Thanksgiving.

“Weather is a surprisingly big factor when it comes to people searching for homes” Once Thanksgiving hits, it’s all over until the cycle starts again that second week of January. Although December is not the slowest time of year, it is certainly a close second to July. There are still buyers out there wanting to get into a home before the New Year, for tax purposes, but other than that, it’s a pretty inactive time for the real estate market. Of course, market saturation also plays a huge role if you’re trying to time the selling of your home. Right now, inventories are very low, so well-priced homes that come on the market are not only selling fast, but getting full price and multiple offers. There’s probably never been a better time to sell than right now. It’s good old-fashioned economics – the law of supply and demand – the demand is there, the supply is not. If you’ve ever considered selling your home but were waiting for the “best” time to sell, now might be that time. All that being said, and considering that a nice home, well-priced will almost certainly sell at any time, one may still conclude that the best time of year to sell, remains…when you’re ready.

Home Network File Sharing By Chad Aldrich Aldrich Technology Consulting

More and more of us have data to share with other family members or even outside of the home to friends and family over the internet. Sure, you could use Google or Apple to host some of these files or pictures to share, but what if it is a large amount of files or a large video file? These type of hosts often have file size limits. One solution would be a NAS (Network Attached Storage) device. A NAS device allows you to store virtually unlimited data and be able to share it over the internet to friends and family. It is like having your own personal cloud right in your home. Store your entire collection of vacation photos on a NAS and share the whole album with anybody you want. Simply send them a link to the shared files and they can log in from wherever they are to view your photos and videos.

Other uses for a NAS include storing movies, home videos and photos and playing them to your favorite smart TV or media player. Some NAS devices even allow you to

32 info@entertainmentguidemn.com

connect a network camera for surveillance, which can record video right to the NAS, and give you the ability to watch live feed or recordings of those videos from anywhere, including your mobile phone. It can also work as your own personal Dropbox, syncing files from one computer to another within a set folder. Another use would be to store your entire music collection, which can be shared to multiple computers.

Most NAS devices have multiple hard drives for redundancy so the data is mirrored on more than one drive. That way if one drive fails you can continue to use the device until you replace the bad drive with a new one. There is even an option to backup your data to a cloud solution for off-site backup, which ensures that your precious family memories are not lost. If this sounds enticing to you, or if you just want to know more about this, then contact Aldrich Technology Consulting: 507/581-5037.• AldrichTechMN.com.

Lakeville Area Arts Center See theater page. Jack & Kitty • 8-11pm

The Contented Cow, Northfield Kitty’s uncle is Bunny Wailer of Bob Marley and the Wailers fame, so music is literally in her blood. She grew up listening to a healthy blend of reggae, rap and R&B. At a young age Jack discovered his vaudevillian great-grandfather’s phonograph record collection and spent his childhood listening to cats like Bing Crosby, Al Jolson and Rudy Vallee. As fate would have it, oddball ukulele legend Tiny Tim moved in next door and became Jack’s babysitter. That rich musical stew forms the blend of Jack and Kitty’s Emmy Award-winning artistic approach. It’s organic and acoustic with nothing but positive vibes. Laid-back music steeped in tradition with one foot firmly in the future, they call their style “organic vaudeville folk.”
