I’m Blaine Howerton, with your April 13 North Forty News update…


On our website today, we have a Q&A with two local authors, Gary Raham and Elizabeth Ervin Blankenheim, about books they have published.

The Earth Day-themed books will be presented at an event called Earth Through the Ages.

The event will be at Sanderosa Art Gallery in Laporte on April 23, from 12-4 PM.

Jonson Kuhn has a review of some recent music in our New SCENE section. He was at Wolverine Farm on April 6 with the newly-formed band Heavy Gus.

Heavy Gus, is a little bit indie-rock and a little bit indie-folk and together it all makes for a perfect combination of the two genres, says Jonson.

Check out the full-length feature on our website in the New SCENE weekly section.


The United Way in Greeley has announced a 5K/10K to support preventing and ending homelessness efforts. The Steps for Stability Run/walk will be on May 1.
