Whew! After three weeks of closed doors -- behind which massive renovations were taking place -- local independent film haven the Chez Artiste is new, improved and reopened. Movie-goers will notice a huge range of improvements throughout the space, including new Barco Digital Projection, upgrades to the theater's sound and plush seats with more space between rows. (Take that, airlines.) The changes also bridge outside the screening rooms, where the theater has installed granite countertops, glass walls, hardwood and stone floors, wall coverings and decorative light features. This morning, Chez Artiste manager Belinda Harms gave Westword a sneak peak at the final steps for the re-designed theater.

133rd Combat Support Engineer Company, WYARNG

Scape goat and whipping boy – Operation Iraqi Freedom III

I was volunteered to serve with this company during the tour during Iraq... For my honor and dignity, I was accused of sleeping with a cousin, I was placed in a tower for over 5 consecutive months, and I was perhaps one of the best riflemen in the company. I hit 30 out of 30 at the range, I hit 29 out of 30 with the gas mask on, and I hit 28 out of 30 during night fire exercise... and with all this ability, I was placed under the command of a coward... He wanted to keep his lips pressed so tight to the ass-cheeks of LTC. Porter that he did not have judgment, what he had was tunnel vision. I had a Sargent Major that was to bridge the gap between enlisted and officer staff... but Sargent Major Russell was week and would rather get drunk with his command buddies then fight for the rights of his NCO's. Anyway, This coward... Captain Jason Roberts played "play station during his command tour.. he took one chopper ride and was given a Bronze star. Our Chicken Shit 1St SGT also got a Bronze star and he shit himself even over the mere thought of leaving the wire. So I fought two enemy’s while in Iraq... The 133rd CSE, and the weaker and less dangerous insurgents. I should have earned the SILVER STAR for being able to survive the chicken shit soup from Nov 04 to Jan 06. At least I would have something besides this unidentifiable infection that no one can seem to cure... complements of a Captain that is now a Major... I can only assume that his lip lock to COL. Porters ass must be involving tongue action. So yes, Being Proud of my service comes with great sacrifice at the hand of my comrades... Fight that every day for a year. The 1SGT is supposed to defend his NCO's, OUR 1SGT was a lackey... On several occasions I would be brought into the commander’s office with ALL the command officers present, the 1SGT and the Command Clerk (SFC) and ALL of them were belittling, were defaming and harassing me. 4 grenades would send them home together in boxes.
