The singer knows first-hand what it’s like to have loved ones fighting for the freedom of all Americans as his father served in the Navy & the Merchant Marine in World War II. “USA” is now part of the film for Homeland Security shown when swearing in new citizens to the United States.

Justin Lane known by his stage name as J.P. is an American singer/songwriter in American Pop/Rock.

The outcome of this horrific blast was the loss of both his legs, right middle finger and 24 other injuries, mostly internal.
With intense physical training, hard work and dedication to never giving up, J.P. has been able to overcome obstacles never thought by doctors. Walking around with ease and pursuing a lifestyle not sought by most in his situation, J.P. is becoming what he has always wanted to be...a pop/rock artist.

Only three people have any hope of stopping it: the President of the United States (Aaron Eckhart), his formidable Secret Service head (Gerard Butler), and an English MI-6 agent who rightly trusts no one.

An infant boy, shipwrecked in the early 20th century with his parents off the west coast of Africa, is left alone after the boy’s parents are killed by a leopard. A nurturing gorilla named Kala, whose own infant is carried off by the same leopard, finds the boy and takes care of him as her own child.

This does not sit well with Kerchak, her mate and leader of the tribe, who warns that the boy is different from them and will lead to trouble and grief. Nonetheless, Kala raises Tarzan until Kerchak expels him from the community for fashioning a spear that Kerchak believes is to harm gorillas.

Years pass, and the young adult Tarzan finds himself attracted to a young English naturalist, Jane Porter, exploring the African jungle with her father and a mercenary guide named Clayton. Intrigued by the ape-man as well as by the gorillas, previously unseen by Europeans, Jane unwittingly leads Tarzan into a trap set by Clayton to bring chained gorillas back to England.

1975
Rating: PG (adult situations/language, violence)
Genre: Drama, Action & Adventure, Mystery & Suspense
Run Time: 2 hr. 4 min.

Based on Peter Benchley's best-selling novel, Steven Spielberg's 1975 shark saga set the standard for the New Hollywood popcorn blockbuster while frightening millions of moviegoers out of the water. One early summer night on fictional Atlantic resort Amity Island, Chrissie decides to take a moonlight skinny dip while her friends party on the beach. Yanked suddenly below the ocean surface, she never returns. When pieces of her wash ashore, Police Chief Brody (Roy Scheider) suspects the worst, but Mayor Vaughn (Murray Hamilton), mindful of the lucrative tourist trade and the approaching July 4th holiday, refuses to put the island on a business-killing shark alert. After the shark dines on a few more victims, the Mayor orders the local fishermen to catch the culprit. Satisfied with the shark they find, the greedy Mayor reopens the beaches, despite the warning from visiting ichthyologist Hooper (Richard Dreyfuss) that the attacks were probably caused by a far more formidable Great White. One more fatality later, Brody and Hooper join forces with flinty old salt Quint (Robert Shaw), the only local fisherman willing to take on a Great White--especially since the price is right. The three ride off on Quint's boat "The Orca," soon coming face to teeth with the enemy. ~ Lucia Bozzola, Rovi

*Same day and date only, after 4:00pm. Any restaurant from First Street to Seventh Street and from White Avenue to Pitkin Avenue. For questions please call 970-263-5700.

KANSAS has spent more than four decades as a part of the soundtrack of the lives of multiple generations of music lovers. The band’s first public statement appeared on their self-titled album in 1974. "From the beginning, we considered ourselves and our music different and we hope we will always remain so." Little did this legendary rock group realize that back in the early ‘70's, what seemed to be “different," was actually ahead of its time.
Coinciding with the celebration of their 40th anniversary, the band KANSAS, was inducted into both the Kansas Hall of Fame and the Georgia Music Hall of Fame as recognition for their achievements from both their native state and adopted home state.
KANSAS signed a new recording contract with InsideOut Music in late -2015. The band's 15th studio album is scheduled to be released Fall 2016.
The band, which is currently comprised of original drummer Phil Ehart, bassist/vocalist Billy Greer, keyboardist David Manion, vocalist/keyboardist Ronnie Platt, violinist/guitarist David Ragsdale, and original guitarist Richard Williams, continues to perform in front of large and enthusiastic audiences around the world.
Along with touring, KANSAS continues to remain a fixture of Classic Rock radio and has reached a whole new audience through their unmistakable presence on the popular video games Rock Band and Guitar Hero, and through their songs inclusion in various television shows such as ‘Supernatural,’and ‘South Park,’ and with films ‘Old School,’ and ‘Anchorman.’
