Weather has forced the postponement of Saturday's fifth annual Local Area Musicians Charity Fundraiser benefiting Leaps of Love at historic Turner Hall, but one of the event's most-anticipated acts still will take the stage, though at a different venue.

Predawn Hour is reforming for one last show at 9 p.m. at One Restaurant and Bar, 600 Hampshire.

The free show is being held nearly three years since the band last played and more than five years since the foursome of guitarist Matt Parker, guitarist and singer George Cate, drummer Danny Mabie, and bass player Kyle Mabie last played together.

The band has had several practices and "things have come together quite nicely," Cate said.

"It's nice to feel that energy again," he said. "The four of us, we have that chemistry."

The Local Area Musicians Charity Fundraiser has been rescheduled for March 21-22. For more information on Leaps of Love, go to its website,

Therapy dog knows just what Baldwin students need
Cooper heads down the hallway in Baldwin West for another day of school. He's focused. He's friendly. He's furry. Cooper, a golden doodle, is teacher Erin Armbruster's trained therapy dog, and his pawprints reach beyond just her classroom. "He helps out the students. He's a very good dog," fifth-grader Myles Cain said.
