March 6, 2009 – Justin Parson, Exhibit Opportunities and Free and Legal Downloads

A quick complaint.  Does anyone know why Venango Newspapers won’t use durable URLs?  I forward a lot of their stuff to ex-pats, but the newspaper links are bad after 24 hours.

Congrats to local musician Jesse Lavery!  He’s due to become a dad for the first time anytime now.  Send him a best wishes at his MySpace page.
