You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown
On Friday, November 19, and Saturday, November 20, West Platte High School will perform You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.”
Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day.
You’ll see perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form.
In this “average day in the life of Charlie Brown,” the Peanuts gang sing and dance their way through a range of emotions “from wild optimism to utter despair” in a show that will take you back to your childhood and the days of Sunday morning funny pages.
The show starts at 7pm on Friday and Saturday. There will also be a 2pm matinee performance on Saturday. Platte County Health Department recommendations will be followed.
Weston Boy Scouts and their leaders gathered Saturday morning to honorably retire tattered and damaged American Flags. In the background, flags were folded as part of the presentation.
The Weston Lions Club sponsored the Flag retirement ceremony. Because the flag pole at City Hall was damaged, Lions member Buck Rowland held an American flag as Abby Cline sang the Star Spangled Banner.
Traffic Idea or Downtown Stalls
A proposal for a one-way traffic system for downtown skidded to a halt Tuesday evening when people familiar with traffic needs addressed it in a special Planning & Zoning work session. “I think it’s a horrible idea,” Police Chief Kelly Clark said. “I agree some of it’s workable, but it would cut down on emergency response times.
“If I’m at City Hall, it’s sending us all the way around to Washington Street to get to the east part of town.”
The plan had traffic coming in on Walnut one-way, starting at Cherry Street, then down Main Street. Exits would be on Spring Street from Main to Cherry and back out Walnut, or streets to Washington and out that way.
