One six-year-old young lady comes in on Thursdays to tell me which piece of art she has chosen as her favorite for the week.”Campbell said all of the people who visit, volunteer, donate, and work at the JCA have been a joy to get to know.“It’s easy to tell that there is a deep passion for bringing the education and exposure to the arts to all citizens of our area, as well as visitors from other states and nations,” she said. “I’ve talked to friends who live in Troy and say that they have never been to the Johnson Center even though they drive by it several times a week.  We encourage everyone to come visit and learn what the Johnson Center has to offer.”One of those offerings will be on February 13 when the JCA hosts “Galentine’s in the Gallery.” “Campbell said Galentine’s is a celebration of women’s friendship and will be from 2:30 to 5 p.m. Women of all ages are invited to drop by the JCA and celebrate Galentine’s.The JCA’s regular hours are 10:00 am until 5:00 pm Monday – Friday and from 10 am until 3:00 pm on Saturday.”Admission to the Johnson Center is free.    Latest Stories When Brenda Campbell was announced as the new director of the Johnson Center for the Arts back in November, she referred to herself as a “self-starter who is willing to jump in” wherever she is needed.Campbell officially came on board the first of January and she has been as good as her word, said Wiley White, JCA exhibition coordinator.“Brenda is on top of everything,” White said. “I’ve never seen anybody who is so organized. She immediately started doing good things – getting things organized and bringing new and great ideas. She is working with the board and so many good things and new things are being planned. It’s an exciting time at the Johnson Center.”Campbell said before taking the job as director of the Johnson Center for the Arts she had visited the arts center a few times, but only through her work.

first_imgThat might not be enough. Scott has two years left on his contract worth around $8.5 million. Though he is guaranteed salary for the 2016-17 season, financial concerns have not stopped the Lakers from experiencing splits from recent coaches.The Lakers fired Mike Brown five games into his second season (2012). Mike D’Antoni also resigned following his second year (2014). Yet, Bryant downplayed the scrutiny Scott has received in developing the team’s core young players. “I’ve seen Phil (Jackson) win 67 games here and get criticized,” Bryant said. “What does that tell you? It doesn’t make a difference. People are always going to criticize. You just continue to do the job the best way you know how.” The fanbase mostly has become frustrated with coach Byron Scott’s every move. Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak also has declined this week to offer any vote of confidence. But with Scott serving both as his rookie mentor and strong advocate during his 20th and final NBA season, Kobe Bryant offered some sympathy for the Lakers’ embattled coach.Bryant credited Scott for “channeling his inner Zen” while overseeing the Lakers (11-45) field the Western Conference’s worst record entering Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bulls (28-26) at United Center. “It’s been very tough. But I think he’s managing it very well,” Bryant said of Scott. “He’s remaining consistent and continuing to try to bring the best out of these young guys and demanding the best from them. He’s doing the best he can in the situation.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Memory laneThe Lakers technically listed Bryant as probable to play on Sunday in Chicago after dislocating the middle finger of his right hand. But it seems all but certain Bryant would play. X-rays turned out negative and revealed no fracture. Bryant has “many great memories” in playing in the arena that Michael Jordan built. “There’s an energy to the arena and unbelievable history that they have there,” Bryant said. “It’s a special significance to me personally growing up watching Michael, Scottie (Pippen) and all those guys play and having learned so much watching them perform there.”• RELATED: Who’s better? Breaking down Kobe vs. MJThat included when Bryant attended an NBA Finals game in 1996 between the Bulls and Seattle Supersonics with Jermaine O’Neal following rookie camp. “Somebody tricked us and said they had great tickets,” Bryant said. “We were up in the nosebleeds. I felt like we were going to fall. That’s how high up we were. We needed binoculars to see.”Rave reviewThe antsy feeling grew for Lakers rookie forward Larry Nance Jr. for two reasons. He became frustrated he sat out of the NBA’s Dunk Contest last weekend amid soreness in his right knee. Nance could not keep his eyes off the screen as Minnesota guard Zach LaVine and Orlando forward Aaron Gordon kept trading jaw-dropping dunks.“It was obviously very impressive. But I’m biased. 1984 is the best dunk contest,” said Nance, mindful that his father won that contest. “But they were up there. They were flying.”That left Nance eager to top that presuming he appears in the NBA dunk contest next year.“I’ve been brainstorming for a while,” Nance said. “I have a pretty good repertoire. But after that last dunk contest, I got to tune it up.”last_img read more
