The 2007 Oil Heritage Festival art show winners have been announced.

Connie Lane, author of Knit Two Together, will be at Kindred Spirits Yarn Studio in Franklin (507 13th St) from 11 -1pm on July 28th

Pittsburgh based Libby Cartwright hadn't planned on inheriting a yarn shop from her estranged mother. But that was before she found her favorite childhood stuffed animal amidst the dust and moldering yarn. And before she encountered a motley crew of locals determined to resurrect the store. So what else had Mom been hiding?

Lane has been nominated for the RITA award by the Romance Writers of America and received the KISS award from Romantic Times magazine.

Meadville will soon have some new public art:

Berry Breene, who graduated from Allegheny in May, has designed a mural for the Park Avenue side of the Hovis Annex on Chestnut Street. The mural, which will highlight Meadville’s history as a mill town, will be completed as a community “Painting-Bee” that brings intergenerational groups together.
The project is funded by KPB and a gift from the Richards Family in memory of artist Gwen Barboni, former director of the Meadville Council on the Arts.

Josh Dracup, a 2007 graduate of Allegheny College, has designed a sculptural mural for an area adjacent to Mill Run between Voodoo Brewery and a parking garage. The hand-painted 3-D sculptural relief is being constructed of reclaimed road signs and will include the words “Meta MASH,” a play on mash as a product and stage of the beer brewing process.

The clock is ticking on a "window of opportunity" to keep Wanango Country Club from going public.
It must be hell being rich.
