Boys & Girls Club changing its name; remains committed to community-based mission.

GLOBE- Despite rumors, the Globe Boys & Girls Club is not closing. It’s just changing its name and part of its mission. As of July 1, the Club will be called the Cobre Valley YOUTH Club (CVYC) and will no longer be under the umbrella of the Boys & Girls Club of the East Valley, which has been its parent company since 2012. The current mission, which is to be a community-based, character-building youth development organization, will change only slightly with the new organization. The goal of CVYC will be to serve ages 5-10 with enrichment programs that make learning fun and rewarding while building character – much as it does now. The CVYC will be a safe, fun place for young people in these age groups to hang out, learn new things and have adventures. School day homework help will continue to be a focus for these ages.

Reader reviews movie SPLIT now playing

 By Michael Burk   M. Night Shyamalan’s “Split” (2017) In 1999 M. Night seemingly achieved overnight success with the Bruce Willis supernatural thriller, “The Sixth Sense”. It had critical praise, financial reward & even a few Oscar nods. A year later, he teamed with Willis once again on “Unbreakable”.   A beautifully subdued take on the superhero origin legend. It did okay, but wasn’t the blockbuster their original team up was. It to this day remains my favorite M. Night film. Some films take more than one viewing to truly grasp their greatness. Then came “Signs”.  Another big hit & basically the last, not just for Shyamalan, but unfortunately, for it’s star, Mel Gibson as well. I actually walked from one screening of “Signs” to the next one the day it was released. Just to hear the audience shriek in terror, all over again. Night would never stop making films, but he surely stopped making successful ones.   Personally, I’ve never given up on him as a talent & have enjoyed most of his missteps, if not out & out experiments. I always longed for him to just stop writing his own stuff & just direct some one else’s work. But ... Read More »
