Behind Gone with the WindFools to perform Moonlight and
MagnoliasBy KAREN BOSSICK
Its common knowledge that Gone With The Wind is one of Hollywoods top grossing motion pictures, receiving 10 Academy Awards, selling more tickets than any other film in history and placing in the top five among the American Film Institutes Top 100 Best Ameri-can Films of All Time.
Whats not as well known is the story of the three men who conspired to craft the film they thought was guaranteed to fail.
Company of Fools will present
the behind-the-scenes story in all its hilarity during a three-week run that begins Tuesday at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey.
Moonlight and Magnolias will run Dec. 14 through Dec. 31.
It stars Ed Kershen as Pro-ducer David O. Selznick, Scott Creighton as Screenwriter Ben Hecht, Andrew Alburger as Di-rector Victor Fleming and Hai-ley Elementary School teacher Christine Leslie as their hapless secretary. Director Gordon Rein-hart is a Boise State University theatre arts professor who ap-peared in the Fools productions of Death and the Maiden and Uncle Vanya.
It has a lively, almost farci-Christine Leslie, a teacher at Hailey El-ementary School, is appearing in her first play with Company of Fools since the Laramie Project. continued,page14

Don Giovanni shows at the Magic Lantern
The Magic Lantern Cinema will pres-ent the San Fran-cisco Operas production of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarts Don Giovanni, often referred to as the greatest opera ever composed, this week in its downstairs Screening Rooms.
The film will be shown twice at 6 p.m. tonight and 6 p.m. Thursday.
This is a live performance in High Defini-tion, conducted by Donald Runnicles, and is a co-production with the Theatre de la Monnaie-Brussels. Don Giovanni is the story of an unrepentant seducer, and his ultimate tragedy.
Caritas Chorale Conductor Dick Brown will give a pre-show informative talk about Don Giovanni at 5:30 p.m. Thursday before the showing.
Carefully balancing comedy with heap-ing amounts of seduction, love and ultimate tragedy, Don Giovanni is often referred to as the greatest opera ever composed.
This particular version Polish baritone Mariusz Kwiecien in the title role. It is sung in Italian with English subtitles. The running time is three hours and five minutes with a ten-minute intermission and a behind-the-scenes interview. twp

Service becomes a way of lifeIf you are a regular customer at Hailey Coffee Company, you have probably met Wood River High School senior Ashton Lufton and have come to expect a big smile and extremely effi-cient service. Its like a family here, she said, and thats why I enjoy doing it. Ive never enjoyed working that much, but here I absolutely love it. Plus the income gives me the chance to travel and to save for college. I also enjoy working here because I get to interact with so many people and get the same buzz from waiting on some-one that I get from doing public service. And public service is something that has defined Luptons whole life.
Her parents moved here from California when she was two years old because they wanted to live in a ski resort. Her father is a teacher at Wood River High School. Initially living in Bellev-ue, her family moved to Hailey when she was three years old. Her academic career has taken her from Bellevue Elementary to Hailey Elementary and then to Wood River Middle School and now the High School. I love living here because everyone knows each other and someones always looking out for you. But there is a flip side to it because going to the grocery store can take forever! As much as I like it here, I still want to experience more and see different places. I dont really think I want to stay in the same place for the rest of my life.
Sporting a 3.7 grade point average, Lupton gushes when talking about Wood River. Its a great environment. For a public school, the academics are excel-lent and the school promotes an interest in knowledge and they
genuinely want you to succeed. Ive never met a teacher there that doesnt care for you person-ally. Most will stay after school because they enjoy talking to you as a person and you can talk to them about anything. Youre more than just a student. They also dont lecture you or talk down to you and when the class is over, their teaching is never done.
Luptons hopes for the future are to become a doctor; to that end, she spent her senior year shadowing a physician for nine weeks. It was just an awesome experience. My favorite was experiencing a birth, which was truly amazing. You can learn so much from the hands-on experi-ence and to do something like that in high school is truly a gift. It strengthened my passions for medicine. I can say that I did it and loved it.
Her academics have also resulted in many distinctive rewards. Among these are the Congressional Award and being a member of National Honor Society. Both have a strong emphasis on community service. Service is so rewarding. You give a lot, but you receive so
much more in return. One of the things I look for in a college is the opportunity to serve. The awards are great because it gives you a sense of accomplish-ment, but I would certainly do it without the awards.
Another avenue of service is being co-chairman of the schools Key Club that works hand in hand with the Kiwanis Club. Here students get involved with volunteer activities like help-ing with Camp Rainbow Gold. Luptons life, since six years old, has also been heavily involved in the Girl Scouts. This spring she hopes to receive a Gold Award, which is the highest honor for a scout. Girl Scouts has opened so many doors for me. Its allowed me to do so many things and meet tons of great people. Its just so much fun for girls and it also helps them get involved with service. Being involved with the community makes Luptons life special and proves that giving can be a persons highest calling.
