Film series will feature “Romero!” Dec. 7

LLCC Arts and Humanities is hosting a free film and discussion series this fall entitled, “Through a Different Lens: Cultural Perspectives through Film,” hosted by Ashley Green, Ph.D., professor of English and Joseph Hoff, Ph.D., professor of Spanish. The next and final film for the fall is “Romero!” It will be shown on Thursday, Dec. 7 from 6-9 p.m. in the Trutter Center.

This 1989 bio-pic documents the transition of Oscar Romero from a bookish, disengaged Catholic priest to the Archbishop of El Salvador against the backdrop of the major contours of 20th century Latin American history. Speaker and facilitator is Dr. Hoff.

In addition, the Trutter Museum will be open until 6 p.m. on Dec. 7. The museum will feature a display of cultural items from the country highlighted in the film that evening!

Fall 2017 bird banding results

In cooperation with the Lincoln Land Association of Bird Banders, LLCC biology students participate in the capture, banding and release of birds, recording information which is added to a massive data pool on bird migration patterns. Highlights from the fall 2017 bird banding season include:

  • From Aug. 21 to Nov. 10, 2236 birds of 79 species were banded.
  • We also captured 66 “returns” (birds banded in a previous season) including seven birds originally banded during the spring 2013 season.
  • Twenty-three hummingbirds were captured, banded and released using a hummingbird trap.
  • The average capture rate was 34.4 birds per day.
  • There were four days during which we banded over 100 birds, with our highest one-day total being 147 birds banded (Nov. 6).
  • We added one new species, Broad-winged Hawk, for the station (all seasons combined).
  • The cumulative total for all 11 seasons stands at 18,402 birds banded of 119 species.
