Some of the world’s speediest runners, springiest jumpers and throwiest throwers compete this week in Eugene at the U.S. Olympic Track and Field Trials. Beginning Friday at Hayward Field, America’s track stars will give it their sweatiest all to see if they have what it takes to bring home Olympic gold medals from Brazil this summer.

2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials: Track and Field run July 1-10 at Hayward Field, at UO; Ticket prices vary, see usatf.org for more information.

Ken is funny, successful and smart. And he wants to die. Left paralyzed after a car accident and dependent on medical support systems, he is disinclined to wallow among beeping, sanitized hospital equipment. Ken chooses death. The rub, in this particular case, is that he’s not allowed to. This is the story of Whose Life Is It Anyway?, which opens Friday at the Very Little Theater. For VLT director Cindy Solari, the plot line of this play is more than just speculation. “I am a dialysis patient in end-stage renal failure due to a rare disease called vasculitis,” Solari explains. This production marks Solari’s return to theater after a 6-year absence following her diagnosis. “There are many ways I relate with the character of Ken,” she says. “We would both die if we stop treatment. The battle we face is sobering and extremely hard. And we both use humor to help others cope with it, and fight for our right to make decisions about our care.” Solari says she hopes that beyond entertaining audiences, this production will encourage awareness. 

Whose Life is it Anyway? runs July 1-10 at Very Little Theatre, 2350 Hilyard St.; $12, for tickets and times, visit thevlt.com or call 541-344-7751. — Anna Grace

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!

At the top of the message, include briefly and without extra description:

Refer to our online calendar listings for the format. For times, am and pm are always lowercased, and we use & instead of and.
