‘I am alive and well’: Oscar night’s overlooked foul-up

Mon., Feb. 27, 2017, 9:30 a.m.

The confusion appears to stem from a 2010 photo of Jan Chapman accepting an Australian award, which is sold for reproduction with a caption misidentifying her as Janet Patterson. A close-up of same photo appears to have been used in the Oscars montage, despite Chapman’s warnings.

No concerts of the current season of the Spokane Symphony have displayed the power of the orchestra so brilliantly as those that took place this weekend in the Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox. The program was intended to observe the 80th anniversary of the death of French composer, Maurice Ravel (1875-1937), to set his music in the context of his time, and to illustrate how his influence has continued into ours.

The Lilies, in the front, are, from left, Kathryn Cooney, Karen Toreson, Marla Larson, Linda Uphus, Laurie Sheffler, Bunny Malmstad. The Lilies investment club has spawned their younger version, the Dandies, arrayed in the back of the photo.

A Spokane Valley investment club, the Lilies, started 21 years ago. They’re all women who love coffee, so in fall 1995 their first choice ignored a financial adviser’s caution about a then-smaller Seattle company, Starbucks. Various investments later, they’ve grown both a sizable portfolio and tight friendships. And now, some of their daughters have started a second investment club, the Dandies.

Dear Carolyn: I've known for a while that my parents are not my fiancee's favorite people, and didn't totally understand why until my fiancee recently revealed she's still simmering over a comment my dad made over a year ago that my mom eagerly "me-too"-ed. It was a dumb and petty comment about someone else's appearance that my fiancee took as a subtle reference to her.
