"There are only a handful of theaters like this left in the whole country," she notes ruefully. "That makes it very special."

In honor of the 50th anniversary, Roberto is brainstorming extra summer activities, such as parades, puppet workshops and a sure-to-be-Kodak-moment-worthy "teddy bear picnic,"

Spring 2011 Newsletter

"My first question to Brad Owen, Lieutenant Governor of the State of Washington, was―when did you first realize you wanted to be in politics? Could it have been as far back as your days in
Frankfurt? His answer was surprising. ―I first ran for office in fifth grade, he chuckled. ―I was in school politics throughout junior high and high school, ..."

Wellington R. Scott

Highway Patrol fills senior leadership positions

Three longtime members of the N.C. Highway Patrol have been promoted to senior leadership positions.

Lt. Col. Wellington R. Scott will serve as the patrol's deputy commander, making him the agency's second in command. He takes the position vacated when Col. Mike Gilchrist was sworn in as the patrol's commander earlier this month.

As deputy commander, Scott will oversee the management of Administrative Services Section, Office of Professional Standards, Training Section, and Support Services Section. He has served with the Highway Patrol since 1985, most recently as the lieutenant colonel responsible for overseeing field operations for the agency's 1,800 troopers.

Maj. Gary L. Bell has been promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel, filling the position vacated by Scott. Bell joined the Highway Patrol in 1986 and was most recently charged with overseeing the Professional Standards Section. That section, which includes the Internal Affairs Unit, will now be headed by Maj. Jennifer Harris.

Debbie Higgens

Adventist Professor to Enter C.S. Lewis’ World
Higgens will oversee ‘The Kilns’ for two years

BY MEGAN BRAUNER, Media Relations assistant, General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists
ASeventh-day Adventist English professor will spend the next two years overseeing the home of Christian apologist and writer C.S. Lewis in Oxford, England.
Debbie Higgens, who has devoted much of her career to studying and teaching about Lewis, is the new resident director of the home the author inhabited for 20 years. The Kilns is the birthplace of some of Lewis' most beloved works, including The Chronicles of Narnia series.
Higgens, a professor at Southern Adventist University, has a long history with the C.S. Lewis Foundation. She has visited The Kilns off and on since the mid 1990s and stayed there for six months in 2007.
“I wrote the last two chapters of my dissertation in the office where they think Lewis wrote The Chronicles of Narnia,” Higgens said. “The [doctoral] committee said the last two chapters were my best.”
Part of Higgens’ duties will involve overseeing the scholars-in-residence program, which allows doctoral candidates from Oxford to stay at The Kilns while working on their dissertations. She is the fourth person to hold the position.
“The people who [directed The Kilns] since the 2006 start of the scholars in residence are wonderful people, but not academics,” Higgens said. “I hope to bring the academic side.”
Higgens also teaches a class on C.S. Lewis at Southern, the Seventh-day Adventist university located in Collegedale, Tennessee. She is taking a two-year break to fill the unpaid position at The Kilns.
“I do feel called to do this,” Higgens said. “If I didn’t, I wouldn’t be able to take this step.”
Higgens hopes to share what she calls the “magic atmosphere” with short-term visitors who come to tour the author’s home.
“Lewis loved the house, he loved the location,” she said. “It was all rural then.”
Lewis frequently drew from his surroundings in his writings, Higgens said, and visitors are often surprised at what they find. “When it snows, you can imagine Mr. Tumnus coming out of the woods . . . because he wrote about his own backyard.”
For more information, visit Higgens’ blog at, and the C.S. Lewis Foundation site  .
