“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”

Directed by Shira Dubrovner 
Through September 8, 2013
Thurs – Sat @ 7pm  Sun @4pm
Admission: $20 / $18 / $10

In the Tony-Award winning musical comedy, six young people in the throes of puberty, overseen by grown-ups who barely managed to escape childhood themselves, learn that winning isn’t everything and that losing doesn’t necessarily make you a loser. With its enormously appealing cast of lovable misfits, nerds, neurotics (and no jocks), Spelling Bee hilariously captures the angst, exhilaration, and heartache that makes growing up so painful and so wonderful.

Employment Seminar

The Mammoth Lakes Chamber of Commerce has teamed up with David S. Baumwohl, A Professional Corporation and the Ventura-based full-service law firm Myers, Widders, Gibson, Jones & Feingold, LLP to bring you an informative and interactive Human Resources Seminar entitled, The Most Common Mistakes Employers Make That Get Them Sued” on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM at the Grand Sierra Lodge.The Firms have formed a mutual of counsel relationship which provides a new service level and legal resource for clients of the Baumwohl firm unique to the Eastern Sierra. While both firms retain their separate identities, the “of counsel” relationship has enabled the firms to work as a team for the benefit of clients of the respective firms.
The seminar will cover the most common mistakes employers make that increase their odds of being subjected to employment-related lawsuits, such as:
•Failing to provide meal and rest breaks 
•Misclassifying employees as exempt from overtime pay
•Not taking sexual harassment claims seriously
•Misclassifying employees as independent contractors  
•Failing to handle terminations properly  
·       Q & A

Attendees will walk away with practical strategies and best practices to minimize their company’s chances of being sued for these common mistakes and will have the opportunity to obtain free legal advice during the Q & A section of the presentation. Seminar is FREE to attend and light fare and beverages will be provided.For more information, contact Samantha Balchum at[email protected].
