Open house pays tribute to beloved LCC photography professor

by Lawrence Cosentino
Longtime Lansing Community College photography Professor Steve Beck was famous for being easygoing, but thereīs one thing he hated to hear: “Iīll fix that in post.” Beckīs directive, “do it in the camera now,” went beyond technical advice to become a life lesson for hundreds of students. Like a frosty spider web poised to melt at sunrise, life gives you one exposure at best.

Schuler vs. Schuler

Chelsea Handler in Okemos, Christopher Moore in Eastwood on Saturday

by Bill Castanier
A funny thing happened on the way to the book signing. Chelsea Handler, comedian, author and late night talk show host, and Christopher Moore, author of 13 comedic novels, have been scheduled for stops in the Lansing area on the same day and time — 2 p.m. Saturday — at both local Schuler Books & Music locations. Moore will speak and sign books at Eastwood Towne Center and Handler will sign at Meridian Mall. Schuler is taking this literary meteor shower in stride and expects both events to be packed with standing room only for fans of these New York Times best-selling authors.

by ALLAN I. ROSS
Wednesday, April 30 — Last weekend, stand-up comic Carlos Mencia took the stage at Connxtions Comedy Club, 2900 N. East St. on Lansing’s north side. Since the club opened in 1985, thousands of aspiring and professional comedians had stood in that exact spot under the club’s spotlight — pre-“Home Improvement” Tim Allen, pre-“Tonight Show” Jay Leno, post-“Tom Green Show” Tom Green — but Mencia has a singular distinction among them: He was the last act that will ever perform there.
