Support sought for, NO PIPELINE Benefit Concert By Peggy Mackenzie On Sunday, June 14, a No Pipeline Benefit Concert has been organized to bring needed support to oppose the Mountain Valley Pipeline's planned route through Monroe County. Much of the organized opposition to the route centers on the perceived threat it poses to the pristine springs of Pe- ters Mountain. Described by hydro- geologist Rick Eades as "the most challenging portion of the pipeline's path in the state," this benefit concert seeks to support an important cause for all Monroe Countians. The concert, which will run from 2 to 5 p.m., will be held at the gra- cious Salt Sulphur Springs Resort, just three miles south of Union on Route 219. A great lineup of music is prepared to entertain, including Rush Run Philharmonic, Squawkin' Henry, Robin & Doug, and Hans Creek String Band. Be ready to en- joy a range of music, from country, folk and bluegrass to Americana har- monies and blues in a beautiful set- ting at the resort. Stuart's Smoke House will supply smoked brisket, burgers, hot dogs and pulled pork. A bake sale will fill that sweet tooth with homemade goodies, iced tea and lemonade. Sweet Springs Water will also be available. Pipeline information and maps will be on hand for disbursal. Donations appreciated.

The characters, with their cold de- termination and cut-throat attitudes, prove to be interesting roles for the actors. "I love Roxie because she is hope- ful, gritty, has so much gall and is determined to find happiness," said Lilly Tobin, who will portray the ambitious murderess Roxie Hart. The two leading ladies of Chi- cago are based on Belva Gaertner and Beulah Annan who were on trial for murder in the 1920s. Prominent lawyers William Scott Stewart and W.W. O'Brien were the inspiration for Billy Flynn, the smooth talker hired to free the accused murder- esses. Reporter]X, laurine Dallas Wat- kins covered both murder trials for the Chicago Tribune and wrote the play Chicago in 1926. Bob Fosse, Fred Ebb and John Kander adapted Watkins' work into a musical. They modeled the show after vaudeville acts or characters. The music they created and their ad- aptation of Watkins' play truly stand the test of time; Chicago has been entertaining audiences ever since its first performance in 1975. Kim Morgan Dean has been pre- paring for her role as Velma Kelly by learning as much as she can about the man who made Chicago what it is today. "Chicago has such a distinct style so I spent time researching its direc- tor/choreographer/ co-author Bob Fosse. He had such a specific vision for this musical, and the choices he made inform so much of how the material is handled even today," said Morgan Dean.
