Corvallis class takes on DUI ads and other paying jobs. Media Arts in Public Schools program at Corvallis or MAPS, as it’s called, is turning pro.

A group of Corvallis High School students stood shivering around Eden Taylor’s tombstone at the Missoula City Cemetery on Thursday.

Occasionally, one of them would crack a joke.

They weren’t being disrespectful to Taylor, whose body is not buried there and who is not, for that matter, dead.
Neither, however, is she alive.

Jesse Barteaux made her up, combining his sisters’ names to form a fictitious one to place on the tombstone.

It’s all a part of a big step for the Media Arts in Public Schools program at Corvallis.

MAPS, as it’s called, is turning pro.

Corvallis students’ mentor nominated for Disney honor

When he approached Corvallis school administrators about three years ago with his idea about teaching classes on filmmaking, Peter Rosten says they were rightfully skeptical.

“All I had was smoke and mirrors,” said Rosten, a former movie and television producer who retired to Darby.

But they heard him out, did a background check and gave him a year to show what he could do.
Now he’s been nominated for a Disney Teacher of the Year award.

“Peter seems to capture the imagination of students in a very unique way,” superintendent Daniel Sybrant said. “I am very pleased that this program has motivated our students to the level it has.”

Called Media Arts in Public Schools, or MAPS, the program has expanded to include a middle school class and MAPS 1 and 2 in high school.

band together”

On Tuesday, February 28, 2006, the legendary band
“LITTLE FEAT” will headline a benefit for MAPS at
the Wilma Theater in Missoula, Montana.

Acclaimed for its inspired weave of rock, country, down-home funk, West Coast pop, and a myriad of other subgenres, Little Feat was founded in 1969 and quickly built a huge Southern California following. In 1970 they scored a deal with Warner Bros., which would issue the band’s first 11 albums, from 1971’s Little Feat through 1990’s Representing The Mambo. In 2002, the Little Feat created its own label, Hot Tomato Records, and released, "Kickin’ It", its 14th studio album.

Today, the band continues to tour internationally and put out new records for their loyal fans. “Time has loved these musical heroes for more than three decades now, as have legions of fans and countless fellow musicians, many of whom they’ve played with over the years. Little Feat will no doubt be sailin’ into the future with no end in sight.” (The Washington Missourian, 7/04)
