LACONIA — Live Comedy featuring Ken Rogerson and Mitch Stinson will be featured at Pitman's Freight Room on Saturday, March 14 at 8 p.m.

Admission is $15 and Pitman's is a BYOB venue.

Rogerson started his comedy career working the Chicago club circuit and at the famed Second City. Ken moved east and became part of the exploding Boston comedy scene of the 1980's, where he honed his standup act to a fine edge.

Fresh off his second nationwide "Rescue Me Comedy Tour" with Denis Leary, Kenny is a favorite in clubs, theaters and on the large and small screen. You may have seen him as "Kevin the Biker Fireman" on F/X's hit show "Rescue Me" starring Denis Leary.

Mitch Stinson is a former aircraft-carrier aviator for the United States Navy who, as a pilot, made over 200 carrier landings during his 10 year military career. Mitch has recently risen through the comedy ranks in the Northeast US by virtue of his original material that offers unique insight into the transition from hot-shot Navy pilot to everyday civilian life.

Loon Center hosting lecture about climate change March 19

MOULTONBOROUGH — On Thursday, March 19 at 7 p.m. at the Loon Center in Moultonborough, the Lakes Region Chapter of the New Hampshire Audubon Society will present a program about "Climate Reality in Times of Change: Problems, Solutions, Action."

Dr. Cynthia Melendy is working with the nonprofit Climate Reality Team, led by Vice President Al Gore, to help people understand the complex problems humankind has introduced to the planet's ecology. Technology and its attending pollution has wreaked havoc on the balance of systems on Earth.

Taking a step-by-step approach, Dr. Melendy will demonstrate the interrelationships between technology, economy, and climate change, suggesting certain models that people can take with them into their municipal systems, businesses, and everyday life, that will help mitigate the destructive forces we have unleashed. Time is of the essence, however, as we take action now and in preparation for the Paris Climate Talks in December 2015.

Unfortunately, despite its far reaching effect, some people, local companies and heads of large, distant corporations don't find this a very attractive topic. It is not easy to get action off the ground to activate effective change. Dr.Melendy will show how people can be involved in a global platform for action to be part of the change that our region needs.

The Loon Center is located on Lee's Mill Road; follow the signs on Blake Road from Route 25 near the Moultonborough Central School, or from Rte. 109 turn on to Lee Road and turn left on Lee's Mill Road. Refreshments will be served.
