Ragtime returns

Posted 3/13/2010 in Entertainment

What may have emerged in the 1800s as dance music with a “ragged” rhythm in cities like New Orleans and St. Louis still lives, breathes and draws fans from around the world.

Adele Elliott: Saving time

Posted 3/13/2010 in Columns

 “I love it! I love it!” The exclamation rang out frequently as Megan Brown was everywhere at once, complimenting girls as they pirouetted in front of full-length mirrors in the former Lia Fashions building in Columbus Feb. 27. The Columbus Air Force Base spouse and a squadron of volunteers, most of them affiliated with CAFB, may not have looked much like Walt Disney’s plump, gray-haired fairy godmother in “Cinderella,” but they had her generosity down pat.

 

David Creel: Happy Birthday, my beautiful friend
