If you have a passion for saving lives -or want to grow your school, gym or club classes, Fight Like A Girl reaches women and kids with a dynamic, energetic program of personal violence prevention. 

We can change the statistics of violence in our world by teaching escape techniques, along with the physical and life skills of esteem, control, avoidance, blocking, power, precision, counter attacks, resourcefulness and the ability to apply that knowledge in the real world.

The program is a ten rank curriculum with either a gi/belt or jersey uniform, designed specifically for women. Instructors are certified either at a regional training or at a private certification in your area. After you have that initial training, going through the curriculum with Sensei Rock, you will have access to a secure website with all of the techniques on video, so you can re-visit them whenever you want a refresher. We also provide monthly updates with marketing materials, class drills, new techniques, videos for public service announcements on television and more... The curriculum includes life skills that go with the block curriculum of fitness, skills and escape techniques. Each rank has a teaching and student card, so it’s simple to have an exciting, progressive class every time.

Girl Scouts, teens, moms, young professionals, executives and seniors all love to come to Fight Like A Girl classes and seminars and the program can fit right into your existing programs and schedules.

We will be holding a certification seminar on March 2nd 2013 from 12pm -6pm  CALL for cost and other info

Air Academy High School’s theatre production will come with a laugh in their fall performance of “Play On!” by Rick Abbot. This comedic play is set in a local theatre, as an amateur theatre company rehearses for their murder mystery show, “Murder Most Foul”.  Through the midst of continuous rewrites from a contemptuous authoress, the audience views the maddening interferences, alongside the actors’ frustrations as the play begins to turn miserably wrong. Between the witty comments, confrontations between the actors and technical crew, and the mess-ups of the actors in their character, leaves the audience continuously laughing throughout the show.

Upon opening the curtains, the comedic plot begins with Aggie/Algie Manville, a stage manager and prompter for the community theatre, and Gerry/Jerry Dunbar, the community theatre director. The two are attempting the perfect the show over the course of three days, before opening night, but never seem to quite achieve it as Phyllis Montague, the novice playwright of “Murder Most Foul”, never leaves the actors to their rehearsal, but instead attempts a forceful throw of new batches of rewrites. As the actors scramble to refine their roles through all the confusion, the goal of a finished show becomes unreachable in the funniest of ways.

Air Academy made a large commitment to their audience by presenting “Play On!” with two complete character casts. Through the few weeks of rehearsals, both casts have perfected their characters, comedic timing, and bringing their own instinct of characterization to the stage.  This is Air Academy’s first attempt at a double cast, and the theatre department believes they have been extremely successful.

“Murder Most Foul” is directed by Gerry/Jerry Dunbar, played by Jennifer Cage and Daniel Fenlason, and assisted with the help of Aggie/Algie Manville, played by Logan Ramsay and Trent Matleny. Henry and Polly Benish, the snooty old theatre veterans are played by Jack Walker and Albi Budney (Henry), and Michelle Cage and Aimee Foster (Polly). Saul Watson, played by Matthew Start and Tyler Wilborn, is known for his instigation of the other cast mates. Marla “Smitty” Smith, the young high school actress is played by Rachel Samuels and Lauren Edgell. Violet Imbry, played by Heather Smith and Sophie Danielson, is a pretty young woman, whose brain doesn’t seem to be as pretty. Billy Carewe, a young athletic man is played by Chad Shayotovich and Rex Olson. Phyllis Montague, the novice playwright is performed by Sierra Geter and Rebekah Whittington. And Louise/Louie Peary the theatre’s sad-faced technician is played by Alex Crochet and Sarah Stevenson.

“Play On!” will run from Wednesday, November 9th through Saturday, November 12th with the show starting at 7:00pm all 4 nights. Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $7 for students, children, and seniors. You may purchase reserved seating atwww.showtix4u.com, or at the door.

My name is Lisa Czelatdko (sa-lot-ko) and I am running for District 3 City Council.  I feel great passion for this community I live in with my husband Tom and our 4 children.  I am disappointed and no longer tolerable of how things have been going with this City.  I know that the residents in D3 are needing someone to represent their specific interests and be their voice in City Hall.  I am not a career politician and have been interested in the strengths and challenges of D3 since originally running against former Councilman Heimlicher 2 years ago.  I have earned the respect and support of many community leaders including 2 past D3 Councilors, County Commissioner Sallie Clark and Jerry Heimlicher.  I have former ElPaso County treasurer Sandra Damron as my campaign treasurer. I will be using current communication tools like website, blogging, Facebook, Twitter, and newsletters to reach out to the broader public to educate and be accessible.  I will repair relationships between City Councilors and the County Commissioners and work together to collaborate on regionalization.  I will remain fiscally conservative and work with the City staff in thinking and planning for the future instead of just reacting to things in crisis. I have a websitewww.electlisac.com that is almost complete and I invite you to take a look at me and what I can bring to the City as a District 3 representative. Thank you, Lisa
