Urinetown

UVa-Wise Calendar - Fri, 04/22/2016 - 8:00pm

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is an earnest tale of love, greed, and revolution. The show is set in a town plagued by a 20-year drought, where water has become so scarce that private toilets have become unthinkable. At the mercy of a single dominating corporation who maintains a monopoly on the town’s public amenities, the destitute citizens must pay towering taxes and fines to carry out their most private and basic of needs. Out of the mass of the pitiable, a hero rises to lead his fellow citizens against the tyrannical regime. Drawing from West Side Story, Chicago, and Les Misérables among others, the show irreverently pays witty homage to the great American musical theatre tradition. Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America’s greatest art forms.

Tickets – $10 (Admission is free for students, faculty, and staff when CAVS card is presented.)

Community asked to document Green Salamander sightings

UVa-Wise News - Thu, 04/21/2016 - 4:11pm

Community members are being asked to photograph and report Green Salamander sightings in the region as part of a scientific research project being conducted in collaboration with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.

The research is being conducted by Wally Smith, assistant professor of biology at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise, and Kevin Hamed, professor of biology at Virginia Highlands Community College. Together, the two biologists and their students are tracking green salamanders to learn more about their preferred habitats and their prevalence in our region.
“We suspect that Green Salamanders are more prevalent in our region than we once thought,” Hamed said. “Our ongoing research indicates that we simply don’t notice them because of their ability to blend in with their surroundings and the fact that they often live in trees and rocky areas where people don’t often go. State officials are interested in our research data because it helps them determine where to focus their conservation efforts.”
Hamed began the project with a Virginia Community College System Paul Lee Professional Development grant in 2005. Subsequent funding was provided by VDGIF through a State Wildlife Grant from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the University Of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture. Students from UVa-Wise, working under the direction of Smith joined the study, and additional funding was provided by the UVa-Wise Fellowship in the Natural Sciences endowment.
This early research indicates Green Salamanders occupy habitats near rock outcrops, tree trunks and downed logs. They typically are not found around streams. Green Salamanders are usually between three and six inches long with a black body and yellowish-green patches. They have a flat body and tail, square toes, and a pale yellow belly.
“Citizen reports are a major resource for us in Southwest Virginia, since many Green Salamander populations may exist on private property where biologists may have limited access,” Smith said. “In addition, we’re finding that hikers and rock climbers are frequently running into Green Salamanders and other amphibian species in the region. These reports serve as an invaluable way for us to gauge where this rare species lives and how its populations are doing.”
Those who spot a Green Salamander are encouraged to take photo and record the time and location it was spotted, but are asked not to handle it or remove it from its natural habitat. The information can be shared with Smith at whs2q@uvawise.edu or (276) 376-4642, or Hamed at khamed@vhcc.edu or (276) 739-2431.
