‘Night to Shine’ set at Faith Church – New Milford Spectrum

(AP) If the Golden Globes are obvious celebs, cameras, tuxedoes the night-before Art of Elysium fundraiser is the ultimate in esoteric. Where the typical black-tie gala promises drinks, dinner and entertainment, the art charity’s eighth annual Heaven gala aimed to provide an artistic experience curated by performance artist Marina Abramovic. “It’s Marina’s vision that you are part of the art,” guests were told upon entering the party Saturday, held in an airplane hangar in Santa Monica, California. It began with a “silent cocktail hour.” Celebrants such as Zach Braff, Usher, Joaquin Phoenix and Johnny Depp, who lounged on a couch behind velvet ropes, were instructed not to speak during the cocktail reception and encouraged to wear silencing headphones provided by attendants. Drinks were to be ordered by pointing at a menu. Depp and fiancee Amber Heard, the night’s guest of honor, did not wear the headsets.

This is the first time the City Council will exercise a new provision that allows them to review a project at the concept plan phase. The concept plan phase allows the developer to get city feedback on the larger vision before getting into the details of site plans, engineering and rezoning, but until now, only the Planning Board has provided feedback at the concept plan stage. With controversy over development in Boulder creating new political pressures and less certainty for developers, city officials and developers both supported allowing the council to weigh in earlier, before developers make larger investments of time and money, only to have a project be rejected at the last moment. The project, whose name means “dream” in French, sits on 6 acres on the southeast corner of 30th and Pearl, next to Boulder Junction.

Boulder council to review Reve project Thursday – Boulder Daily Camera

Embed By Thursday, January 08, 2015 06:00PM FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — Night vision video shows a pack of pit bulls on the prowl in Fresno County. Those dogs are off the street, and the man they went after is alive, thanks to a helicopter high above. That pit bull attack may have gone un-noticed were it not for a patrolling helicopter that captured the entire incident on camera. In the video, those white dots are pit bulls running free around a Fresno County alley. And then a man appears, and almost immediately the dogs descend upon him.
