CBNA senior Alice Ewing, Semifinalist in Merit Scholarship Program


Officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) recently announced that Coe-Brown senior Alice Ewing has been named a Semifinalist in the National Merit Scholarship Program.  Miss Ewing joins approximately 16,000 other Semifinalists nationwide in this annual program who were the highest scoring students in their states on the 2017 PSAT which served as an initial screen of program entrants.  Miss Ewing along with these other academically talented students, has an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 8,300 National Merit scholarships worth more than $31 million that will be offered next spring.


To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements including submitting a detailed application and essay to advance to the Finalist level of the competition.  About 90% of the Semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and more than half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.  Congratulations to Alice Ewing on this achievement.



This Weekend’s LRPA After Dark Feature:

1951’s “At War With The Army”


Join Lakes Region Public Access Television at 10:30 p.m. this Friday and Saturday night (November 9 & 10) for our “LRPA After Dark” presentation of 1951’s musical comedy “At War With the Army,” starring the classic comedy team of Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. 


Sergeant Victor Puccinelli and Private First Class Alvin Korwin serve in the U.S. Army during WWII. Before enlisting, they were best friends and partners in a nightclub song-and-dance act. Since enlisting and serving on the same base, they tend to get on each other’s nerves. Puccinelli (Martin), a suave ladies’ man, is good at his boring, paper-pushing desk job, but dreams of being transferred to active duty overseas. His CO has no intentions of letting him leave, planning instead to commission him as the company’s Warrant Officer. Korwin (Lewis) is a lovable goofball who works in the mess hall but can’t do anything right. Everything he touches turns to disaster. He’s on K.P. duty as a result of his incompetence. Korwin begs for a weekend pass to visit his wife, but can’t seem to catch a break. Things are further complicated by Puccinelli’s love life, which is in a constant whirlwind, plus the fact that Korwin wants his old partner to rehearse for a USO show and also to record a song they have co-written and, much to Puccinelli’s chagrin. Will Puccinelli get to see active duty? Will Korwin get to see his wife back home? Most importantly, will the guys get together and put on the show? 


Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis made 16 movies together over the span of their careers. “At War With the Army” was their third movie, but their first starring vehicle. Their roles in this film, as in all of their movies, follow typecasting: Martin as the handsome Romeo, Lewis as the luckless jokester. “At War With the Army” has everything that you’d expect from a Martin and Lewis movie: loads of wonderful slapstick moments, as well as songs, shtick, crazy mix-ups and zany antics, and even a spoof of Bing Crosby and Barry Fitzgerald in “Going My Way.” This was vintage Martin and Lewis, before egos and jealousy got in the way. If it sounds like fun, then grab your popcorn and meet us after dark for this wacky sendup of Army bureaucracy.
