Justin passes on this BBC article wherein they check out the "good times" in Oil City. (Which, to my way of thinking, is like junkies celebrating a long forgotten poppy field). More interesting however, is their noticing:

The alliance is encouraging a new generation of young people to repopulate Oil City, including a programme to convert some floors of the Standard Oil building into artists' studios.

which , is close to the truth. As far as I know, Arts Czar Joann Wheeler is not enforcing a Logan's Run-style-no-one-over-30 edict.

The Transit Fine Arts Gallery has named painter Jocelyn Beatty as its featured artist for the month of May. A large selection of her work will be on display throughout the month and an evening reception has been scheduled in the Gallery for Monday, May 19th. The Art Gallery is located in the historic National Transit Building at 206 Seneca Street in downtown Oil City. Hours are 10:00-4:00 on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday.

Although I'm not a dinner theatre aficionado myself, I was psyched to see that there's another place in Erie that I can eat. On May 1, The Station Dinner Theatre and Celebrities Restaurant went smoke free.

I had no idea that The Road was being shot in part at Conneaut Lake Park, but apparently, some thieves did.
