I was appalled by the Derrick/News Herald's front page article profiling a guy who lived here ten years ago and now lives in Florida and is releasing an album.
Was it too much trouble to line up all the local musicians and artists and spit in their faces on a one by one basis? Was it just easier to undermine the work that Oil City has undertaken by encouraging artists to come here by profiling a hesher who moved away because he was "ready to rock?"

Pittsburgh's Celebration of Glass has begun. Trust me. It's cooler than it sounds.

The Carnegie Museum of Art has restored its Sol LeWitt wall drawings.

Joel Salatin, the guy behind Virginia's Polyface Farm which was profiled in Michael Pollan's book The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals will be at the 4-H center at the Warren County Fairgrounds on Saturday, March 24, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.The cost to attend is $15 for each session; however a discounted registration is available to those interested in attending both sessions.

I always saw you as more of a "Rawker" - you know, Hammer-of-the-Gods-tight-leather-trousers sort of fellow.

dude, totally. but when i'm not wailing some totally cool licks, you know, i oft times get pretty bummed about the lack of appreciation for local things in venango county. i know, it's almost a universal cultural problem too, but that gets downright depressing.
