Chainsaw Carvers' Rendezvous, grant money, Franklin On Ice meltdown

A funeral away from home gives you some downtime. I spent mine reading the local papers in Elk County, so if you're in the mood for a roadtrip :

The final design of the T-shirt for the 2006 Ridgway Chainsaw Carvers' Rendezvous is based on the cover of “The Art of Chainsaw Carving,” by Jesse Groeschen. The Rendezvous is scheduled from Feb. 17 to Feb. 26.

Straub brewery will be issuing a special label in honor of the Rendezvous.

Giant deer statue planned to draw I-80 motorists to Clearfield

Erie area poet, Mary Moodey, is working with Ridgway students as part of the Artists in Education program - a fine program which I myself participated in. She's also an Allegheny alum.

Closer, the City of Titusville has been awarded a $1,836 grant by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts to help the Titusville Council on the Arts cover the cost of providing programs.

This month the Oil City Library will feature a display of 25 old poscards featuring old buildings in the city during the oil boom days.

How sad, the year I finally convince my wife to sponser an ice sculpture for The Franklin on Ice Festival, they annoucne that it's only one day, Saturday, Feb. 11, this year. I've always found it much more enjoyable than Applefest. In a wildly ill advised move, they've added a retro prom this year, so now grownups too can vomit on rental wear. Wheeee!

Finally, moving south, I love Overheard in Pittsburgh.
