Kacie’s Turn at the Bat

Kacie’s Turn at the Bat

The last few blogs, being question and answer sessions, have been pretty easy to write, since the majority of the work has actually been done for me by the subjects themselves.  I’m helped by how wonderfully cooperative my coworkers are–for instance,  Rachel Stickney wasn’t afraid to share her feelings about her parents and to divulge

Let’s Play 19 Questions with David Benedetto

In case you don’t know who (Louis) David Benedetto is, I’ll give you some clues. While receiving your reading assignment, have you heard  a melodic humming or a perfectly on-pitch verse of an unidentifiable song coming from the back table?

The Impartial Messenger

It’s ten pm, the dinner dishes are done, and you’ve just settled down with a bowl of ice cream to watch the evening news.  Angela Hill looks radiant wearing her rose blouse behind the desk (stay with me here–yes, I know she has retired, but don’t you WISH you could still have her to read

The Top Ten List of 2013–It Was a Very Good Year!

Last month, every magazine WRBH received had a cover story that screamed Christmas.  After perusing 30 magazines with glossy pages of red and green and sparkles and getting thoroughly bored with cookies, a shift has occurred: all I see in January are lists, lists, and more lists–from People and Time to Entertainment Weekly and Newsweek
