Legislature approves advancing gas line project

JUNEAU - The Alaska Legislature has passed a bill setting the state's participation in a major liquefied natural gas project. The House voted 36-4 on the measure Sunday. The Senate later voted 16-4 to agree to the House changes. SB138, from Gov. Sean Parnell, would set state participation at about 25 percent in a project also being pursued TransCanada, the Alaska Gasline Development Corp., and the North Slope's major players. It would allow the project to move to a stage of preliminary engineering and design and cost refinement.

BICYCLING WITH MOLÍERE

Opens Wednesday, Apr 23, 2014 Synopsis: A popular French television actor makes the journey to L'Île de Ré on a mission to convince his old friend, a retired fellow actor, to appear in a stage version of Molière's The Misanthrope. Gauthier (Lambert Wilson) is a handsome actor who plays a beloved cosmetic surgeon on a prominent daytime soap opera, and Serge (Fabrice Luchini) is a once-proud theatre performer who's comparative lack of success has rendered him and bitter middle-aged man. Serge is living a life of peaceful solitude near France's Atlantic coast, when, one day, his old friend Gauthier turns up on his doorstep in a bid to summon him back to the boards. Once Serge learns that the play in question is Molière's The Misanthrope, set to be staged in Paris, his interest is peaked. Later, as the two bickering friends rehearse their lines during bicycle rides down bucolic roads, the appearance of an aspiring porn actress, an alluring Italian divorcée, and a prime piece of island real estate begin to complicate an already sensitive arrangement. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Fabrice Luchini, Lambert Wilson, Maya Sansa Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Need For Speed

Now Playing Synopsis: A mechanic who moonlights as an underground race-car driver strives to take the top prize in America's most prominent street race in order to have his revenge against the ambitious ex-NASCAR champ who had him framed and sent to prison. Inspired by the popular video-game franchise of the same name, Need for Speed tells the story of garage owner Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul). Desperate to keep his family-owned business afloat, Marshall forms an uncomfortable partnership with wealthy ex-NASCAR star Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). That partnership falls apart when a lucrative sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poots) fails to pan out, and unscrupulous Brewster uses a tragic street-racing mishap to have the innocent Marshall incarcerated. Released from prison two years later, the vengeful Marshall plots to prove his mettle by winning the De Leon -- an illicit race showcasing the country's top underground talents. But getting to the De Leon will be no simple task, because not only has the ruthless Brewster put a bounty on Marshall's prized car, but the police are hot on his trail during the white-knuckle, coast-to-coast dash. Fortunately for Marshall, his loyal crew and Bonet are willing to help him get to the starting line in time for the big race. Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi, Ramon Rodriguez, and Michael Keaton co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Aaron Paul, Imogen Poots, Dominic Cooper, Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
