@Joel Kight: Thank you very much. I hope there is a correction in the print edition as well, as so many of the people who attend the Master Chorale concerts are older and more likely to be print subscribers.posted @ Monday, April 30, 2012 - 08:12
I think Twilight is wonderful, and I'm glad it's here. I especially enjoy the positive impact I see on the children of our community, who get to see some really great role models when it comes to cycling and taking care of our bodies.
However, after having an inattentive cyclist slam his bike into my car Saturday afternoon, I think the party atmosphere needs to be brought down a notch. I had already been stopped for at least fifteen seconds at a traffic light, and had not stopped suddenly, either. Worse, the fellow just picked up his bike and carried on, without even a wave to me, talking to his buddy the entire time. I'm glad he's okay, but he was not a good example to the children.
I don't know that anything can be done about this kind of thing, but I will certainly be carrying my camera with me throughout future Twilight weekends so I can at least take a picture of anyone who runs into me.posted @ Monday, April 30, 2012 - 08:09
@Faithful Reader: Also, to make it clear: the concert is Friday, May 4th--BEFORE the other concerts. The article makes it sound as if it is the Friday after the rest of them.posted @ Sunday, April 29, 2012 - 14:44
There is a misprint; the Athens Master Chorale concert is actually at 8:00 p.m on Friday, not at 4:00 p.m. as stated in the article.posted @ Sunday, April 29, 2012 - 06:57

How sad for everyone. I thought we were past all of this kind of ueber-reactionary phobia. Besides showing extreme ignorance, it's just plain cowardly.posted @ Friday, December 16, 2011 - 20:38
I'm so glad for everyone involved; Chuck Auslander is a wonderful person and I know he will attend to the duties of this position with the same positive energy and high ethics he does everything else.posted @ Friday, December 16, 2011 - 20:35
I believe the ABH staffer means "mountain dulcimer" instead of "pedal steel" and "tenor recorder" instead of "clarinet". And, yes, that guy at the Eastside Kroger is really terrific! Go, Salvation Army!posted @ Thursday, December 15, 2011 - 06:48
