Electronic and Photographic Media film/video professor Kathy Corley and adjunct professors Carrie Houk and Diane Carson were honored Nov. 20 with Charles Guggenheim Cinema St. Louis Awards for their roles as Cinema St. Louis founders, in conjunction with the St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF). The ceremony took place at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark.

The 2011 SLIFF Award website states: “SLIFF presents its annual Cinema St. Louis Award to a group of remarkable women who helped establish the festival’s reputation during its first decade and who continue to contribute significantly to the organization today. Without the contributions of these extraordinary women, the festival would not have survived to celebrate its 20th anniversary.”

Rishe on L.A. Dodgers Ownership

Walker School of Business economics professor Patrick Rishe is quoted in the L.A. Times article, “New Dodgers owner can follow one of two paths,” concerning out-going Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team owner Frank McCourt:

“Because he did such a poor job the last few years kind of running that franchise into the ground, just by virtue of what fans had to deal with the last two years makes whoever is coming in look like a white knight,” says Rishe.
