Discovery of new dinosaur is topic of Galveston College lecture

Galveston College will present a lecture about the discovery of a new dinosaur species, “A new dinosaur relative from the beginning of the age of dinosaurs in northern Colorado,” on Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. in the Abe and Annie Seibel Foundation Wing at Galveston College, 4015 Avenue Q, Galveston, Texas.

Speaker is Dr. Jeffrey W. Martz, assistant professor of geology at the University of Houston-Downtown, who recently helped discover a new species of dinosaur called Kwanasaurus williamparkeri, a dinosauromorph about as large as a medium-sized dog.

“This year the lecture series at Galveston College is focused on discoveries and to learn that new discoveries about dinosaurs can happen anytime is quite fascinating,” said Dr. Laimutis Bytautas, chair of the Faculty Professional Development Committee, which organizes the lecture series.

“Many of us might think that we know almost everything about these creatures that lived many millions of years ago just to find out that this is not exactly true. In fact, there are so many things we still do not know about these animals that became extinct a long time ago. This lecture is an exciting opportunity for everybody to learn about dinosaurs and their lives from a researcher who makes these discoveries. We welcome everybody to attend this exciting lecture.”

Dr. Martz was born in Denver, Colorado, and grew up primarily in the Denver and Salida regions of Colorado. He began his studies in paleontology as an intern at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science while still attending high school, and worked at Ashfall Fossil Beds in Nebraska in 1994 before attending Colorado State University in Fort Collins.

The lecture is the second in the college’s 2019-20 lecture series: Discovery: The Forefront of Knowledge. It is free and open to the public.

The Galveston College Culinary Arts Academy will provide refreshments for the evening.

Galveston College Theatre to stage ‘More Fun than Bowling’

The Galveston College Theatre department will return to the stage this fall for a three-day run of “More Fun than Bowling,” a funny and eccentrically philosophical comedy by veteran playwright Steven Dietz.

Show dates and times are Thursday, Oct. 17, at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 18, at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Oct. 19, at 7:30 p.m. Performances are located in Room 207 on the second floor of the Galveston College Fine Arts Building.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain and admission is free.

The story follows Jake Tomlinson as he relives moments of his life with his two dead wives, Lois and Loretta, both of whom died in freak bowling accidents.

Main character Jake owns the bowling alley in a small Midwestern town and passes the time ruminating about life while sitting on a hilltop where two of his three wives are buried. Lois was zapped by lightning while carrying a bowling trophy in a thunderstorm, and Loretta was killed by only the second bowling ball rack collapse in history. In his younger days Jake was a promising concert musician, but a foul tip baseball broke his fingers which subsequently healed into a perfect bowler’s grip. Jake replays the key frames of his life and, from time to time, is visited by his daughter Molly who has become adept at talking women into marrying her father for love and free lane time. But who is that nattily dressed man with dark glasses and a revolver lurking nearby?

The Washington Times describes “More Fun than Bowling” as “a very funny and eccentrically philosophical comedy. Mr. Dietz is a…writer with a distinct comic voice. He shows us that life and certainly death is a lot like bowling. For every experience, there seems to be an appropriate bowling expression just waiting to be applied. And for those who thought that bowling was merely a matter of rolling a ball and knocking down some pins, there is an Act II description of the Zen of bowling that will change your thinking forever…. In addition to inventing vivid cartoonish characters and giving them wacky tragic actions, Mr. Dietz is a master of the comic monologue.”

Director is Liz Lacy, program coordinator for Performing Arts at Galveston College. Company members include Dorion Alcantar, Eva Arita, Daniel Bourque, Alyssa Gudz, Christiana-Rose LaCross, Eric Scales and Brittney Somoza.

This production of “More Fun than Bowling” is entered as a participating production in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, a national theater program involving 20,000 students from colleges and universities nationwide annually. It is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
