Science and Nature

by Neil Rajala
MONDAY, MARCH 16 — March is treating us well this year - far more lamb than lion, at least so far. I have friends whose tulips and crocuses (croci?) are already showing their first signs of life. Can leaves be far behind? Here's what we're reading:

Delicate work

Lansing Symphony and Richard Sherman bring ethereal new epic to life

by Lawrence Cosentino
Something out of the ordinary happened about halfway through “Seven Ascents for Flute and Orchestra,” one of two major works the Lansing Symphony Orchestra played Saturday night. An invisible, wet finger descended from the skies, poked through the brick walls of the Wharton Center’s Cobb Great Hall and gently stroked the rim of the orchestra, as if it were a giant wine glass.

Touching history

The William L. Clements Library offers a window into the nation’s past

by Bill Castanier
Thanks to the internet, vast holdings from archives across the world have been digitally opened to the public, but it’s not quite the same as putting on the white cotton gloves and experiencing the thrill of physically encountering a rare item you have never seen before. Clayton Lewis, curator of graphic materials at University of Michigan’s William L. Clements Library, will be at the of the Capital Area District Libraries’ downtown Lansing branch Thursday for a presentation on the evolution and growth of the library.

New in town

by Allan I. Ross
The rumors are false! Contrary to what the Lansing State Journal reported last week, longtime Lansing restaurant the Knight Cap will not permanently close on March 21. Instead, it’s getting a new owner, a snappy new exterior paint job and an interior overhaul that will require the restaurant to close for about a month. But it will remain the Knight Cap.

Big Stars, little city

''Little House on the Prairie'' star on living in Howell

by Gabrielle Johnson
Howell, the traditionally sleepy town 30 miles east of Lansing, got a shot of star power in 2013 when native(ish) son Timothy Busfield, who grew up in East Lansing, and his wife, Melissa Gilbert, beloved star of the “Little House on the Prairie” television series, moved to town. “When we were looking to move, we wanted to be somewhere central, with easy access to planes and trains,” Gilbert said. “We came to Howell, we found the house on my birthday two years ago, and I fell in love.”

Cultural Capital

Howell uses arts and culture to drive the economy of its historic downtown

Balance and brevity

Nathan Alan contemplates life, love and nature on his ‘Better Times’ EP

by Ty Forquer
“Well I don’t know much about the game,” proclaims Lansing singer/songwriter Nathan Alan in “The Game,” the opening track of his recently released “Better Review Times” EP. Indeed, “Better Times” finds the 21-year-old Alan searching to find his way through life and into adulthood. The first track finds Alan contemplating the paralysis that can come from fear of failure. “They bring you up just to put you down again,” he sings. “I play it safe by sitting still.”
