Art Advocates Fear a Small Ohio Budget May Threaten Funding
NPR - 11 months
Lower than projected state tax revenue totals will make budgeting more difficult for Ohio’s lawmakers in the coming weeks. Advocates for the arts know the tight budget threatens their funding, and they are trying to make the case to save those dollars. The executive director of the Ohio Citizens for the Arts, Bill Behrendt, says it’s important that state leaders give the Ohio Arts Council at least $34 million, a slight increase. He says it’s important to keep that funding – especially for smaller communities. “It’s the rural counties that probably see the bigger impact because they are not in Cleveland, Cincinnati or Columbus that have these traditional donor bases that can step up when public funds go down.” Behrendt says the arts create 231,000 jobs statewide, add $32 billion to the state’s economy and generate more than three billion dollars a year in local, state and federal tax revenues.

Dying To Go To Heaven: What The Heaven’s Gate Suicides Teach Us About Islamic Martyrdom
Huffington Post - 11 months
It was 20 years ago this week, March 20-26, 1997, that 39 members of the Heaven’s Gate cult “graduated” from this life to ascend to the UFO mothership that they believed would take them to an extraterrestrial paradise. I’ll never forget it. I was on book tour for Why People Believe Weird Things, and neither I nor any of my peers who study belief systems had ever heard of the cult. It was hard to fathom. Now, as I look back 20 years later, I believe the mass suicide has a deeper lesson that goes far beyond the confines of New Age fringe cults, and has relevance to understanding the motivations of today’s suicide terrorists. But first, let’s revisit the story. Heaven’s Gate was founded in 1975 by Marshall Applewhite and Bonnie Nettles after they met in a psychiatric hospital. They fell in love and believed their pairing had been foretold by extraterrestrials. In the 1980s and 1990s, they recruited several hundred followers, many of whom sold their possessions and lived in isolation...

Indiana Universities Go On Record Against Same-Sex Marriage Ban
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Ball State University joined several other schools in Indiana to go on record against a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. If Indiana's legislature passes House Joint Resolution 6, voters would cast a ballot in November 2014 to determine whether to add a state constitutional amendment setting marriage to be between one man and one woman. Ball State's Senate, comprised of faculty, staff and students, overwhelmingly approved a resolution Thursday with university president's support urging state legislators to abandon the proposal. Indiana lawmakers have debated this sort of ban every year since 2004, Al Jazeera reports, but now they do so with three nearby Midwestern states where same-sex marriage is legalized, and after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act. Ball State's recent announcement puts them arm-in-arm with Indiana University, DePauw University and Wabash College. Purdue University could soon join that list as well stating opposition ...

Paranormal Radio Host Art Bell Mysteriously Disappears From SiriusXM
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The much ballyhooed return of paranormal radio host Art Bell ended in just six weeks. The master of UFOs, fringe science and conspiracy theory is apparently at odds with SiriusXM over live streaming for his millions of fans. The 68-year-old co-creator of the hugely successful "Coast to Coast AM" retired from his full-time role of master of the macabre in 2003, after 15 years. Over that span, he went from mainstream talk to a highly successful foray into unexplained phenomena, turning the syndicated juggernaut into the most listened to overnight show in North America. The late night show's reigns were comfortably taken over by the popular George Noory. This past July, SiriusXM Satellite Radio announced that Bell would launch a new, live, nightly call-in show, "Art Bell's Dark Matter," in September. But since Bell's new program Sept. 16 premiere, there have been, according to Bell on his website, many problems with streaming his show. "Many thousands of my listeners came on...

Marketplace Fairness Act, Bill To Tax Online Sales, Moves Toward Senate Vote
The Huffington Post - almost 5 years
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Senate is expected to open debate Monday evening on a bill that would allow for the collection of sales taxes on items bought online, pushing forward legislation that is pitting state leaders and businesses in support of the measure against conservatives and senators from states with sales taxes. Monday's expected vote follows a nonbinding vote in March in favor of including the online sales tax legislation in the 2014 budget resolution. A bipartisan group of 75 senators voted in favor of the legislation, which has blurred party lines. The bill -- known as the Marketplace Fairness Act -- would enable businesses to collect sales tax on online purchases and send them to the state where the buyer resides. A 1992 Supreme Court decision allows for the tax on online sales, but only if the purchaser voluntarily sends the tax to his or her state tax agency. The issue is a top priority for cash-strapped state and local governments nationwide, with the Nationa...

Mark Cuban: Fox News Should Watch Dancing With the Stars
Huffington Post - over 5 years
I have to be honest, I watch Fox News more often than any of the other cable news nets. I watch CNN next, then MSNBC. So let's get that out of the way. I watched Fox and MSNBC during the election cycle because they told me the worst possible elements that could be found about President Obama and Governor Romney. Both networks work so hard at branding every possible negative issue about the other side that it's very interesting to look at it as an exercise in branding and marketing. Neither truly was reporting the news. They were telling us how they believed a negative brand could be built. And not only did they tell us how negative the other brand was, they were relentless in trying to create confirmation of that negative brand by bringing in "experts" to confirm their brand bias. You know who both networks reminded me of ? All of their shows, with the exception of Bill OReilly reminded me of the old Coast to Coast with Art Bell radio show. Every night Art Bell would...

 Huffington Post article Did Alaska Senate Candidate Break Law While Serving on State Board?
Huffington Post - over 5 years
Alaska State Senate candidate Bob Bell is under investigation for his role in a controversial musk ox hunt in 2010 during the same time he was serving on the Alaska Board of Game, according to Alaska State Troopers. At issue is whether Bell followed regulations meant to discourage trophy hunting when he transferred ownership of horns from the musk ox he shot to a Nome artist, who then carved them and may have sold the horns back to Bell. The candidate said in interviews that hunting partner Cliff Judkins, who was chairman of the Board of Game at the time of the hunt, kept horns from a musk ox he shot during the same hunt. Former head of Alaska Division of Wildlife Conservation Corey Rossi, who also participated in the hunt, might have been involved in the choice to keep the horns. Rossi this year resigned from the Alaska Division of Wildlife Conservation after it was discovered he organized an illegal bear hunt. After questions from Alaska Dispatch, Alaska State T...

R.W. Sanders: Coast to Coast AM: Recipe For Failure?
Huffington Post - over 5 years
When traveling long distance, I used to purposely drive at night for one very particular reason. One of my favorite things is driving across vast spaces while listening to George Noory on Coast to Coast AM radio. I can still remember all those years ago, discovering the program and falling in love with the format. There is just nowhere else on any broadcast media that provides such a nice home for those with a bit more esoteric tastes. The first time I heard the show, I was driving out around Winnemucca, Nev. In the early hours of the a.m., there may be few places any more naturally eerie than the vast, open space of the Nevada desert. The landscape alone brings thoughts of the weird. I remember Art Bell was speaking with someone who believed aliens were already on earth in huge numbers. This person claimed these aliens were headquartered in the desert of Nevada. He said that one could only see them with peripheral vision. Needless to say, I spent the next few hours trying...

Local Collector Joins Board of Prestigious Craft Museum
Coronado Patch - almost 6 years
It’s only been a few months since Courtenay McGowen joined the board of directors at Balboa Park's Mingei International Museum, but she feels right at home.  “The whole concept of housing objects that are beautiful, used in everyday life and are collected from all over the globe is right up my alley,” she said of her new role at the celebrated folk art and craft museum. The museum is thrilled to have McGowen. “With her degrees in art history (a bachelor's and masters from Columbia University), she brings a real knowledge to bear,” said Rob Sidner, Mingei's director. “She also has a passion for the arts of daily life.”  It can be seen in her own collection, which includes fabrics and body ornaments from Central Asia and Northern India, snuff bottles from China, arrowheads from the American Southwest and Viennese miniatures, bequeathed to her by a great-aunt. “Once in a while my mother would let me take them out to play with,” McGowen said.

Hotel Lafayette Gets Ready to Shine

The repolished crown jewel of downtown is almost ready for her close-up as workers finish up at the Hotel Lafayette. Over two hundred people are working throughout the building almost every day of the week to get the historic landmark ready its official debut in just a few weeks. Chandeliers have been refurbished and returned to the Crystal Dining Room, the ornate plaster ceiling of the grand ballroom has been repaired, and the scagliola has been replicated along Peacock Alley. The transformation is nothing short of amazing especially considering the timeline for the restoration work. Although there is still work that needs to be completed throughout the building, much of first floor public spaces and ballrooms as well as the upper floor apartments have been completed. It's mostly just a matter of tidying things up and adding the finishing touches to those spaces.
