The Goods

A president is born
That’s right, the Associated Students election results are in. Here’s the rundown of Chico State’s newest student leaders. Jesse Eller will be the new president, after a runoff against Nick Boles; Julie Wright will be executive vice president; Andrew Rapattoni, vice president of business and finance; James Newman, vice president of facilities and services; Jammie Jelks, director of legislative affairs; Becky Wenter, director of university affairs; Desiree Tavares, activity fee commissioner; Caitlin O’Neill, community affairs commissioner; Marshall Riddle, environmental affairs commissioner; Josue Guzman, multicultural affairs commissioner.

Film noir nod
Jason Tannen, an instructor in Chico State’s Department of Art and Art History, is headed for Wales. Well, his film is, anyway. The Pressman Negatives, a photographic narrative, is the story of a jewelry thief in the Midwest in the 1970s. The film, which shows Sidney Pressman’s final heist through snapshots, has been nominated for a Tinny Award in the film noir category at the 2008 Swansea Film Festival. The international festival will be held the first week of June.

Calling all actors
And singers, and dancers. Butte College Performing Arts is hosting auditions for Chicago May 5-6 from 7-10 p.m. at the Chico Creek Dance Centre. Those hoping to join the cast should not only be able to dance, but sing, too. Bring sheet music from a prepared song of at least 20 bars (but not from Chicago). The play will be performed in November at the Paradise Performing Arts Center, with rehearsals starting in August. For more information, call 895-2994.

Don’t forget mom
Butte College’s Ceramics Department will even help you with a present, with its annual Mother’s Day Pottery Sale. The sale, which will include handmade pottery and ceramic art, won’t actually be on Mother’s Day—so, don’t worry, you’ll have time to browse. Head over to the Butte College cafeteria on the main campus Tuesday and Wednesday (May 6-7) from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., or if you’re in Chico you can check out Room 120 at the Chico Center May 8, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Another gift idea
The Hmong Textile Show and Silent Auction at Chico State will feature embroidery pieces handmade by local Hmong women as well as some pieces from Thailand. The event will be held in BMU 211 from 5-7 p.m. Wednesday (May 7). All proceeds will go to the Hmong Student Association scholarship fund.

So long, seniors
Of course, you’re not going anywhere just yet. But graduation is drawing closer, so it’s time for the Senior Send-off BBQ. If you’re a senior and you’re hungry Tuesday (May 6) from noon- 2:30 p.m., head over to the Free Speech Area on Chico State’s campus. Even if you’re not hungry, stop by to find out what’s in the 2008 time capsule.
