Alright this is it—your last chance to see the local minor teams before the season ends. Fancy an entertaining game with your favorite Inland Empire 66ers? Of course you do but today you have choices. Maybe the Lake Elsinore Storm or Rancho Cucamonga Quakes is more your style. Check out your favorite teams (at their respective stadiums, of course) before they leave only to return again next year.

7:05pm. San Manuel Stadium, 280 S. E St., San Bernardino, (909) 888-9922; Lake Elsinore Storm at Storm Stadium. Rancho Cucamonga Quakes at The Epicenter, Rancho Cucamonga.




Texan assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede (Jack Black) is well known as someone who would give you the shirt off his back. He befriends the meanest and wealthiest widow of town, Marjorie Nugent (played by Shirley MacLaine), and a co-dependent friendship quickly forms. Tiede eventually can’t keep up with her ever increasing demands and she ends up dead in her own freezer. Danny Buck (Matthew McConaughey) is there to solve the case in this sweet yet troubling movie.

Aesthetics, politics and the formation of meaning can be found “In the Shadows of Numbers” if you know where to look . . . or at least that’s what artist Charles Gaines would like you to realize from his years of pondering and creativity.
