Making My Way to Print

I have been involved in video production, radio, and as seen here internet forms of communication, however not yet have I been involved in print. If you read my previous blog you know that I recently went to the Pendleton Artists Society and while I was there I talked to a kind man working for…

Pendleton Artists Society

The Pendleton Artists Society, something I only just learned about is such an untapped community here in Pendleton Indiana. Full of all types of art, photography, acrylic, watercolors, and so much more the Pendleton Artists society houses itself in downtown Pendleton and hosts events the first Friday of each month. The Pendleton Artists society is…

Veterans Day

This coming week is a time of remembrance for those who have done so much to protect us, our families, and our country from the harms that go against our American freedoms. With that being said I think it is important to acknowledge our Veterans and the service that they do for us. No matter…

Community News Director

I am happy to say that last week I was officially given the title of community news director at 91.7 WEEM. I am very honored to be given the position and hope that I can perform the job to the best of my ability. But I am sure you are wondering, what does that title even…

Gene’s Root Beer and Hot Dogs

Sunday, April 29th, I took my first trip to Gene’s Root Beer and Hot Dogs. This is one of the last standings old-fashioned drive-in restaurants in Indiana serving hot dogs, burgers, fried food, homemade root beer, and ice cream! It’s something everyone should experience at least once in their lives and I’m lucky enough to live just miles away. Looking…

Songs to Smile About

“Boogie Shoes,” by K.C. and The Sunshine Band, a song that just makes you happy! And today that’s the topic, songs that you can’t help but tap your foot or smile too. For me, these are classic funk and pop songs. Songs by artists like Earth Wind and Fire, Wild Cherry, and Cheryl Lynn. So…

Guitar

Something that has inspired me and so many, guitar. Famous musicians like Eric Clapton, John Mayer, and Jimmy Page all allow us to see and hear the tremendous effects of both the guitar and music. And it is guitar LEGENDS like these who inspire so many to become better musicians. With their famous riffs, emotional…

Today there are roughly 5,000 commercial airlines over the U.S. at any given moment, this statistic shows just how far transportation has come. At one point in time, it could take anywhere between six and fourteen weeks to travel across the Atlantic, and today, it…
