This week’s A&E section has a story about the latest doc by Wrenshall filmmaker Mike Scholtz. The followup to “Wild Bill’s Run” is a look at the world of competitive jigsaw puzzling.

“Wicker Kittens” plays Friday at Free Range Film Festival. Here are some other picks for things to see.

Here’s another jigsaw puzzle themed piece by Scholtz, which was created for a 48-hour film festival in Minneapolis in 2008.


The headliner for this year’s Twin Ports Bridge Festival is KIDZ Bop.

Music reviewer Tony Bennett says Ween fans should like “Freeman” by Freeman. 

Best Bets include: Free Range Film Festival, The Current at Endion Station, All Pints North, Zenith City Tales, Comedy at Dubh Linn and a brewery tourin’ bluesman.
