When last I talked about the Huron Playhouse, I said that I had finally seen the play, Our Town by Thornton Wilder, and was impressed by the whole cast and crew.  I said I was particularly impressed with the three leads: Emily, George, and the Stage Manager.  Apparently, so were the people from...

I rather messed up the last blog.  I cut and pasted a poem, but all I ended up with was the mess, not the poem.  The poem itself is really rather silly and was done in the spirit of the Express Yourself theme of the summer book read at the Huron Library in conjunction with the talent show idea. ...

I am lucky enough to live in a small city that hosts the longest continuous running summer (live) theatre in the state of Ohio.  Known as the Huron Playhouse, the theatre department of Bowling Green State University puts on five plays and/or musicals in the space of seven weeks.  Each play has a...

These are grim times to be someone who makes their living with words. I’ve already stood witness to the decimation of the newspaper trade. I’m watching the New York publishing industry repeat many of the same mistakes their newspaper brethren made the past five to ten years. Print journalism was...

He also promised 600,000 more this summer! Wow! Go Mr. President!! Now, lest you think I've lost my mind, remember I am a...

On May 4, 2009 I participated at the 39th Annual Kent State University Memorial Event and here is the talk I gave: My name is Laurie Krause. I am the sister of Allison Krause, the daughter of Arthur and Doris Krause. I want to thank you for gathering together today. It’s an honor to be here at Kent...

I just attended a writer's conference that was held in Coshocton, Ohio by a local writers' group, the Write-on Writers' group.  Okay, I am sure many of you have done this before and consider it pretty ho-hum, been there-done that, etc.  However, I found it to be a fairly cool experience and rather...

The most stirring, dramatic novel I’ve read in many years is Light Fell by Evan Fallenberg. It’s the story of Joseph Licht, an Israeli family man who falls in love with his rabbi. At first it looks like it might be the tale of their forbidden romance, but the book takes a startling turn and Licht...

One week.   After decades of broken politics in Washington, eight years of failed policies from George Bush, and twenty-one months of a campaign that has taken us from the rocky coast of Maine to the sunshine of California, we are one week away from change in America.   In one week, you can turn...
