“Hell and Mr. Fudge”
Oct. 17 at 7 p.m.
A platinum award winner at the 2012 Worldfest-Houston International Film Festival, “Hell and Mr. Fudge” is the warm, thoughtful, and sometimes humorous story of the trials and tribulations of evangelical scholar Edward Fudge. His groundbreaking work on hell and the hereafter has aroused fierce controversy. He’s either a hero or a heretic, depending on who you ask. Both friend and foe can appreciate the movie’s authentic revelation of his character.
Mackenzie Astin turns in an inspired and endearing performance as the inimitable Mr. Fudge. With a strong supporting cast, “Hell and Mr. Fudge” is as light-hearted as it is profound. Set in a 1970s Bible-belt town, it is based on Edward Fudge’s personal story of discovery, heartbreak and triumph.
The theme of hell has always been controversial – but perhaps never more so than now. According to a 2008 survey, nearly 60 percent of Americans think there is a hell where “sinners” suffer eternal torment. Theologians are increasingly divided over the issue. “Hell and Mr. Fudge” will raise new questions in the minds of ordinary people and contribute to the broader consideration of hell and the hereafter.
Department of Fish and Wildlife, Management of the State’s Salmon and Steelhead Fishing Guide Industry
The state Department of Fish and Wildlife has scheduled a public meeting on the management of the state’s salmon and steelhead fishing guide industry in Forks on Wednesday.
The meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Rainforest Arts Center, 35 N. Forks Ave.
Fish and Wildlife representatives will discuss current management and take suggestions for potential regulatory changes for the fishing guide industry.
During the 2017 legislative session, the Legislature directed Fish and Wildlife to hold meetings to explore alternative structures for guide licensing.
The states objectives are, according to Fish and Wildlife, to improve the fishing experience and ensure equitable opportunity for both guided and non-guided river anglers, manage fishing pressure to protect wild steelhead and other species, and ensure that recreational fish guiding remains a sustainable economic contributor to rural economies.
Fish and Wildlife also is working with a contractor to develop and conduct a survey to capture feedback from those who cannot attend a meeting in person.
The department will provide a summary of its findings to the Legislature by the end of the year.

Lawmakers to host town hall
OLYMPIA — All three lawmakers who represent the 24th Legislative District are joining together to host a town hall meeting in Forks on March 22.
“This is a great opportunity to inform people about what happened during this year’s legislative session when it comes to creating jobs, improving health care and fully funding our public schools,” said Rep. Steve Tharinger, D-Sequim, who represents the district with Rep. Mike Chapman, D-Port Angeles, and Sen. Kevin Van De Wege, D-Sequim.
“It’s also an opportunity to hear your stories, your ideas and your comments,” Tharinger said.
The Forks town hall will be from noon to 1 p.m. at the Rainforest Art Center, 35 N. Forks Ave.
The 24th District covers Clallam and Jefferson counties and part of Grays Harbor County.
“There’s nothing like hearing directly from the folks you represent, face to face,” said Van De Wege. “Our district is one of the biggest in the state, so these town halls are a chance to get out and hear what people think.”
Chapman said he’s excited to update constituents on legislation and funding to help create rural jobs in timber and farm country, an effort he led in the House and Van De Wege led in the Senate.
“We’re blessed to live in one of the most beautiful areas on the planet,” Chapman said. “The challenge facing our families and local businesses is how to provide more opportunities and economic development, so that our sons and daughters can find work locally and raise their own families in the communities they love.”
Rainforest Council for the Arts Printing Class
Artist Paul Blake will be offering a printing class on Saturday, Sept. 8 at the Rainforest Art Center. A grant is paying the instructor’s fee and students will only be charged $10. The class will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Paul will bring the paints and most of the materials. This is a rare opportunity to take this class for a minimal fee.
The class has been in the works for a long time so Rainforest Council for the Arts is thrilled to have it scheduled. We will be printing on black fabric with things like ferns using very special paints and colors. You will learn basic printing techniques that can be applied elsewhere. Watch for details about registration. Members of RCA get first opportunity to register, class size is limited.
The Rainforest Council for the Arts is sponsoring a Contra Dance this Saturday, September 8, the Rainforest Art Center in beautiful downtown Forks, beginning at 7:00PM.
There are no steps to learn, so don’t worry about being inexperienced. Every dance is taught before the music begins, and the caller will give you verbal instruction throughout each dance. The majority of dancers will be new to contra dance. Come on down for a fun time. This is a great way to meet people, visit with friends, and have a lot of fun while getting exercise and listening to good music. Please join us. Non-dancers are also welcome, and seating is available for those who want to just watch and listen.
Hope to see you there!!!
