The stage is set for some of Kenosha Unified’s youngest performers.
With a cast featuring only elementary and middle school students, The Kenosha Youth Performing Arts Company delivers the timeless story about the boy who never grows up with the Disney classic “Peter Pan Jr.” opening at 7 tonight (July 28) at the Bradford High School Auditorium.
It turns out you can teach an old dog new tricks. That’s if the dog is super-soldier former CIA agent Jason Bourne (Matt Damon), and the trainer is director Paul Greengrass, who helmed Bournes “Supremacy” and “Ultimatum.” After the misfire that was “The Bourne Legacy,” a misguided attempt to pass off the franchise to Jeremy Renner, Damon and Greengrass ably right the ship, delivering a Bourne film that looks and feels like the kind that we’ve always loved.
“Jason Bourne” delivers everything that we expect from this franchise. We want Damon making swift, brutal work of his enemies, landing heavy punches and turning mundane household items into deadly weapons. We want him burning rubber on narrow European streets, burning out the clutches on any motorized vehicle he can hijack. We want CIA bigwigs, illuminated by the glow of computer screens shouting “enhance!” at surveillance footage and exclaiming in awe: “It’s Bourne.” All of that is here, gloriously.

Animal shelters in Kenosha are being overrun with cats. The Safe Harbor Humane Society took in more than 150 cats just during the month of June. Kindred Kitties, another shelter has 20 cats and another 70 in temporary foster homes.
The reason for the sudden influx of cats to the shelters? It’s summer. According to shelter workers, some people bring in their cats because they don’t have places to put them when they go on vacation. Other people move and for some reason decide not to take their pets with them.
