Sept. 13th – “Chasing Ice” – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn. In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earth’s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip north opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk.  Chasing Ice is the story of one man’s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.  As the debate polarizes America and the intensity of natural disasters ramps up globally, Balog finds himself at the end of his tether. Battling untested technology in subzero conditions, he comes face to face with his own mortality. It takes years for Balog to see the fruits of his labor. His hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Chasing Ice depicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence and hope to our carbon-powered planet.  Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 9/13, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 9/14, 8:00 pm.  www.auburnpublictheater.org        315-253-6669

Sept. 13th – Comedian: Moody McCarthy – Auburn Public Theater, 108 Genesee St., Auburn.  After appearances on Last Comic Standing and Jimmy Kimmel Live, Moody McCarthy is no longer a well-kept secret. (After an appearance on the re-vamped Star Search, he still was.) Moody began his career in Syracuse, NY, in the 1990s and quickly established himself as a keen monologist. Now based in New York City, he’s become a regular in the town’s best rooms and grown into an act that thrives in any setting, from upscale country clubs to divey pubs. Weaving sly topical jokes with crafty material and a dash of crowd-work, Moody’s likeability shines in any setting. Moody McCarthy: few people hate him!

Zach – Civil War Lecturer – Willard Memorial Chapel, 17 Nelson St., Auburn.  Please join us at the Willard Chapel on Sunday, September 15 at 2pm as the Community Preservation Committee welcomes back Linda Zach, a Civil War lecturer, re-enactor and longtime emergency room nurse. Ms. Zach’s current lecture focuses on wartime contributions by women on the battlefield, at military encampments and on the national political stage.  Harriet Tubman will be featured during this lecture. Not only did Tubman escape slavery herself, only to return and help many others find freedom, she also risked her life as a spy for the Union army. Other distinguished women demonstrated strength, courage and resolve. Anna Elizabeth Dickinson was a passionate abolitionist and lecturer for the Republican circuit. Septima Collis accompanied her husband throughout the war, recording her experiences as the sister of a Confederate soldier and the wife of a Union officer. Anna Ella Carols of Maryland encouraged President Lincoln with national policy and planning, including military strategy for the war on the western front.  These women, along with nurses and nuns, cooks and washerwomen, and female soldiers forced to disguise themselves as men in order to fight, all made their mark toward bringing the war to a conclusion.
