Fines would be $50 and the city could receive 64%, $32, of revenue split with the camera’s management group Sensys Gatso.In return, Sensys Gatso will cover all costs associated with installing and maintaining the cameras.So far in 2020, police have stopped over 100 vehicles for traffic violations in school zones. That number is down nearly half from 2019, where officers stopped more than 200 vehicles.The council will be reviewing the proposed resolution and contract with Sensys Gatso during the work session at 7:30 p.m. on Monday.A copy of documents released by the city is posted below:Loading…last_img read more

Patrick Stewart & Ian McKellen Will Bring No Man’s Land to the West End

first_img Stewart, who began his career with the Royal Shakespeare Company, earned a Tony nomination for Macbeth. His additional Broadway credits include A Life in the Theatre, The Caretaker, The Ride Down Mt. Morgan, The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and his solo adaptation of A Christmas Carol. Best known as Captain Jean Luc Picard in Star Trek, his additional film and TV credits include American Dad, Family Guy, the 2009 TV movie adaptation of Hamlet and, of course, the X-Men movies alongside McKellen. The X-Men are joining forces once more in the West End! According to the Daily Mail, Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen will headline Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land in London, reprising their performances from the 2013 Broadway production that played in repertory with Waiting for Godot (which they had starred in, in the West End, in 2009). Sean Mathias will return to direct the production, which aims to take its first bow in 2016 at a theater to be announced. View Comments McKellen earned a Tony Award for Amadeus and an additional nomination for Ian McKellen: Acting Shakespeare. His other Broadway credits include Dance of Death, Wild Honey, Amadeus, Ian McKellen: A Night Out at the Lyceum, and The Promise (which he also appeared in in the West End.) Known as Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings films, McKellen’s additional film and TV credits include Stardust, The Prisoner, Coronation Street and Gods and Monsters. He has frequently performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Royal National Theatre. No Man’s Land tells the story of two writers, Hirst (Stewart) and Spooner (McKellen)—but do they really know each other, or are they performing an elaborate charade? The ambiguity intensifies when two other men arrive. The 2013 Broadway production also featured Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley, though the two will not reunite with McKellen and Stewart on the other side of the pond.last_img read more
