Go see the student art: I am a firm believer that it is a good thing for young students of the arts – music, theater, visual art, or otherwise – to have opportunities to display their creative endeavors to the wider public. Such things as recitals, school plays, and art exhibits in public places give kids a chance to see what it is like to be taken seriously as an artist, to feel what it is like to have a public response to what they have created.

Happy 2019: The coming year promises to be a good one for this California transplant. I’ve been in Maine – in Lincoln County – almost three years and have scoped out a number things I like to do here on a regular basis. And there are still a lot of things I have yet to check out.
Based on the classic Dr. Seuss classic story, “The Grinch” lives a solitary life inside a cave on Mount Crumpet with only his loyal dog, Max, for company. With a cave rigged with inventions and contraptions for his day-to-day needs, the Grinch only sees his neighbors in Whoville when he runs out of food. When the Whos declare they are going to make Christmas three times bigger this year, the Grinch realizes there is only one way for him to gain some peace and quiet: he must steal Christmas. To do so, he decides he will pose as Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, even going so far as to trap a lackadaisical misfit reindeer to pull his sleigh.
