at Mount Marty College
1105 W 8th St
For the 20th year, Mount Marty College students will assist members of the community with preparing their individual tax returns without charge. Students enrolled in the tax clinic course will help prepare required federal and state tax returns for low-income clients. The students will meet with each client for an initial interview then prepare the necessary tax returns. A second, short appointment will be conducted with each client to go over the results of the tax returns before filing. If a client is determined to require more advanced tax services, they will be asked to seek a professional tax preparer.
Each tax return will go through a verification process to ensure accuracy before being returned to the client for filing. At the conclusion of the tax return preparation process, the client will be given a paper return to mail to the Internal Revenue Service along with a full and complete copy for their personal records. No data relative to any tax returns will be maintained by Mount Marty College or the students providing this service.
Those interested in taking advantage of this free service should email firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate their interest and to schedule an appointment. Appointments will be scheduled on Tuesdays from 5:00pm-8:00pm, Wednesdays from 3:00pm-5:00pm, and Thursdays from 3:00pm-8:00pm.

at Dakota Discovery Museum
1300 McGovern Ave
March is National Youth Art Month and to recognize students in our region the Dakota Discovery Museum is hosting the 2014 Youth Art Show. This annual exhibit offers South Dakota students the opportunity to show their work in a gallery setting and have it evaluated by professional artists.
The arts are often considered of limited importance, while in reality they provide children the opportunity to develop skills they will need as adults. Experience in the arts develops self-esteem and self expression, as well as appreciation for the work of others. It also helps to develop the critical thinking skills vital in today’s quickly changing social environment. Youth Art Month is an annual observance each March to emphasize the value of art education for all children and to encourage support for quality school and community art programs.
Students grades K through 12 who live or attend school in South Dakota, including home schools, are eligible. Entry forms are available on-line www.dakotadiscovery.com or by calling 996-2122.
The 2014 Youth Art Show will open on March 1 and will run through Saturday, March 29 at the museum, located on the campus of Dakota Wesleyan University at 1300 McGovern Ave., Mitchell. A free artists’ reception is planned for Saturday, March 29 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Professional artists will be on hand to critique student’s work. Regular museum hours for the exhibit during March will be 10 AM to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 1 PM to 4 PM on Saturdays. During the exhibit, admission is free for student artists and their immediate family.

at Northeast Community College
E. Benjamin Ave
Norfolk: Heat waves. Garbage strikes. Noisy neighbors. Burglars. What more can a man take? Mel Edison can’t take much more as a newly and miserably unemployed man in Neil Simon’s temper-tantrum comedy, The Prisoner of Second Avenue. Mel and his doting wife Edna jump feet first into a hilarious downward spiral as nothing goes their way.
A funny play that is as relevant today as it was when Neil Simon penned it; The Prisoner of Second Avenue is full of situations to which we can all relate.
Proceeds from this and all productions this season will help benefit the Grand Theater Foundation, a part of the Norfolk Community Theatre which is working to restore the Grand Theatre (former Cinema 3) to the glory of years past. The theater will have two performance spaces, and will be available for public and private events. For more information, check out the building campaign page on the Norfolk Community Theatre website.
The curtains will open for “The Prisoner of Second Avenue” March 6-8 at 7:30 p.m. at the Cox Activities Center on the Northeast Community College campus. There will be an additional “Senior Sunday” matinee performance March 2 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. On the Sunday, seniors will receive a discounted rate of $12. The show is free to all Northeast students and staff with valid I.D. Reserve your seat today for this exciting production by calling (402)844-7360 or online at www.NCTheatre.org.
