GONE WITH THE WIND TO BE SHOWN ON THE BIG SCREEN

On September 9th, 1939, the producer of Gone with the Wind  drove to Riverside, California to preview the film before an audience for the first time. An ovation erupted at the films end; among many positive comments left on the preview cards was the general plea to not cut the film any shorter in length.

Gone with the Wind is a sweeping movie about the Old South, the civil war, and the adventures of the spoiled Scarlett O’Hara and her hopeless love for the married Rhett Butler.

The Harbor Theater in Muskegon hopes to recapture that wondrous audience response by hosting two screenings of the newly restored Gone with the Wind  on February 5th and 6th.  The film will start at 2:00pm and end at 6:30, with a 30 minute intermission at each showing.

Bunker Middle School Students Build Remote Vehicles

On January 12th and 13th Bunker Middle School students were able to build & test remote operating vehicles (ROV) at the Muskegon Naval Memorial & Museum and tour the submarine. As Craymer explains, “This is part of the 8th Grade unit on Oceans and Climate. The ROV's are a real world connection on how scientists explore to expand our understanding of the ocean and how we use technology to develop resources for human use. This is also a crossover into our next unit on electricity. How batteries and motors function and are used (Subs, both large and small, for the most part, run on battery power).” 

Craymer goes on to state, “Bunker’s after school program has a mixture of thirty 6th, 7th and 8th graders who are currently building and programming mindstorm robots. Two teams from Bunker will build underwater Remote Operating Vehicles for competition this February in Spring Lake and this March in Chicago.
