NASD school directors are satisfied that losses in the program have been minimized.
"Some of these programs are central to the new middle school," said school board Vice President Jennifer Miller. "The possibilities are endless with the new facility."
"I don't think we should view this [community education] as a profit center," said board member Charles Longacre.
Macbeth is one dark dude.

"Begin Again" is one of the most unromantic romantic comedies in recent memory.
There's little romancing, but lots of talking about romance, and plenty of singing about romance in "Begin Again."
The film is of chief interest for the performance of its star, Keira Knightley, who finally breaks free of her bodice-bound costume drama roles, namely those in "Anna Karenina" (2012),"The Duchess" (2008), "Silk" (2007), "Atonement" (2007), "Pride & Prejudice" (2005) and "King Arthur"(2004).

The Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival production of "Lend Me A Tenor" has all the ingredients for side-splitting laughter: A mistaken-identity plot, five slamming doors right out of a Feydeau farce, characters silly beyond belief, and split-second timing.

James Peck is "The Minister Of Silly Laughs" at Muhlenberg Summer Music Theatre (MSMT).
Peck directs "Monty Python's Spamlot" with liturgical attention to the canon for Python acolytes. The resulting non-stop laughs continue on stage through July 27, Dorothy Hess Baker Theatre, Trexler Pavilion for Theatre & Dance, Muhlenberg College, 2400 Chew St., Allentown.
Whether you're a Pythonite or not, "Spamalot" is hilarious thanks to actors' line delivery timing, orchestra music cues, sound effects, numerous set changes and exciting lighting effects.
"Earth To Echo" echoes several summer sci-fi and coming-of-age movies, notably "Cloverfield" (2008), "The Goonies" (1985), "Stand By Me" (1986), "E.T." (1982) and "American Graffiti" (1973).
While "Earth To Echo" is derivitive, it is "the" discovery of the 2014 summer movie season so far, with performances by four pre-teen relative unknowns in their big-screen leading role debuts.
"Earth To Echo" is simply a lot of fun. It's uncomplicated, unassuming and naive in its story of teen-age angst. It can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
