Councilman accountant

Having had a front row seat to the making of legislative sausage in Lansing, Jim DeLine, the City Council’s recently retired internal auditor, wants into the kitchen. He’s announced that he will run to represent Lansing’s Second Ward. City Pulse talks to DeLine about his ideas for Lansing.

Creating the moment

There is no one in jazz, or in all of music, quite like Israeli-born clarinetist Anat Cohen.Cohen has taken a horn with a corny aura, the clarinet, into far-flung, fertile fields, from the spiritual realm of John Coltrane to a bubbling pot of Latin-American musical traditions. Her presence on stage is so natural it’s almost startling. She’s not trying to be hip, intellectual or above it all. Lawrence Cosentino sits down with the clarinetist, who comes to MSU for a residency next week.

‘He’s Gone’

Longtime Lansing actor John Peakes died Thursday morning at 83. Peakes had been suffering from chronic heart problems and other medical conditions.Peakes was co-founder of BoarsHead Theatre, which was founded in 1966, and served as the troupe’s artistic director until 2003. City Pulse looks back on Peakes’ career in Lansing.
