McCall woman featured in Netflix documentary on female astronauts

Starting on Friday, anyone with a Netflix subscription will be able to watch the story of Gene Nora Jessen, a part-time McCall resident who was poised to become an astronaut in the 1960s.

  A FOWL TALE - Darcy Williamson of McCall “interprets” for her chicken, Hazel, during the final Stage Flight story-telling event held Friday at Alpine Playhouse. The theme of the evening was near-death experiences, and Williamson helped Hazel tell her story about an encounter with a great-horned owl. The series was sponsored by the McCall Arts and Humanities Council and the Alpine Playhouse.
