Eleven new Cowley College Singers announced for 2017-18 school year

Personnel for the 2017-18 Cowley College Singers were announced Aug. 16 after auditions were held earlier that day. Group members were chosen from 20 Cowley students who auditioned. The 2017-18 Cowley College Singers are Stephan Harris, of Oxford; Unique Watson, of Topeka; Tristan Barragan, Jon Lee, Jacob Michaelis and Matthew Sinnett, all of Wellington; Jenny Guzman, of Wichita; and Kamdon Fuqua, Alex Randall, Tiffany Tatum and Adam Young, all of Winfield. The group serves as musical ambassadors for the college, performing in off-campus venues around the area, as well as on-campus concerts. Its repertoire focuses primarily on the vocal jazz genre, with an occasional visit to the Renaissance madrigal style. Any community organizations interested in having the CC Singers perform for one of their meetings should call David Smith, director of vocal music for Cowley College, at (620) 441-5288, or email him at david.smith@cowley.edu. Because most of the students involved in the ensemble work part-time jobs in the evening, at least three weeks’ notice is required when requesting a performance by the CC Singers. This information was provided by Cowley College Director of Institutional Communications and Public Relations Rama Peroo.

Veterans Memorial Lake closed to boating, fishing; walking trail still open

Veterans Memorial Lake, located at 1401 S. Sixth St., has been closed temporarily to the public while state authorities investigate the water quality of the lake. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) is conducting testing and looking into the matter. While it is possible that an algae bloom has developed, that has not been officially determined at this time. This closure is just a precautionary measure. The City of Arkansas City will provide an update once KDHE has made its determination. Until then, the lake is closed to boating and fishing activities. The walking trail remains open to the public, however. In the meantime, KDHE is putting the lake under a Public Health Watch for possible blue-green algae development. This watch has been posted on the barricades at the lake. For more information, visit www.kdheks.gov/algae-illness/download/watch-signage.pdf. This information was provided by City of Arkansas City Public Information Officer and Special Projects Coordinator Andrew Lawson.
