New this week: 'The Sea Beast,' early Elton John, 'Maggie'
This week’s new entertainment releases include two lost albums from rock superstars Neil Young and Elton John, more than two dozen contestants of reality shows like “Survivor,” “The Amazing Race” and “Big Brother” facing off in the contest “The Challenge: USA,” and Netflix’s “The Sea Beast” brings a “Moby Dick”-like tale down to kid size.
Native mascots still a sticking point in high school sports
Lemiley Lane, a Bountiful junior who grew up in the Navajo Nation in Arizona, poses for a photograph at Bountiful High School, July 21, 2020, in Bountiful, Utah. It's an honor, they say, but not to many Native Americans who see the portrayals throughout high school, collegiate and professional sports. Maine lawmakers last year banned Native American mascots in public schools. Attempts in other states to govern the use of Native American mascots have failed in recent years. At the college level, Native American mascots seen as hostile and abusive have been banned in championship play since 2005.
