    May and The Year of the Horse

    May is upon us and finally we can say goodbye to those dreary winter months and hello to Spring/Summer time. I’m sure that for most of us this is truly a wonderful time of the year. I know I greatly prefer Spring/Summer over the winter months. I especially have always been fond of the month of May for several reasons but this year is even more significant than usual. What makes this May so special…

    Staff Selfies: Welsey Johnson and Daniale Thomas

    Wesley Johnson Hello, do you know me? I’m a library IT Assistant. My name is Wesley Johnson. Perhaps you remember seeing me as “MAN IN CROWD AT BARISTA COMPETITION” in William Wallace’s Monkey Mocha Fantastique or “MAN ON BENCH WHO GETS ATTACKED BY ZOMBIES” in the PJ Starks’ classic, WBKR Zombie Run 2013 Commercial. No? You’ve at least seen me crawling under desks with Ethernet cables or toting around broken computers at DCPL, right? You’ll…

    Oral History

    By Savannah Warren As I have mentioned before, I am currently in grad school working on a Masters in Library Science. One of my classes this semester is an Oral History class and it has really surprised me because I had known so little about the subject before. I had always thought Oral History was just any recorded history, but that isn’t true. It turns out it is a very specific type of recording and it…

    A Derringer Profile: Lieut. William P. Conway

    A Derringer Profile: Lieut. William P. Conway For Echoes of Elmwood By Leslie McCarty The story of Lieut. William P. Conway was heard at Voices of Elmwood in 2009 and will be retold at this year’s Echoes of Elmwood, along with nine other stories. Lieut. Conway’s story is one of heroism and survival. But with all great stories, we need to start at the beginning. William P. Conway was born in Owensboro on July 12,…

    My Freegal Five Playlist

    by Wesley Johnson Two monumental events happened to me in 1997 – graduating high school & discovering Indie Rock. That was also the year I stopped wearing hip-hop visors* (yes, they were worn backwards & upside down) and adopted my current “slacker” style. It was a VERY good year. Matthew Sweet – “Sick of Myself” MTV’s 120 Minutes the catalyst for my musical coming-of-age. Matt Pinfield, the show’s host, introduced me to bands like Pavement,…

    My Freegal Five

    One of my favorite television shows is the British comedy series The IT Crowd.  A friend of mine introduced me to it a few years back, and I was immediately hooked.    It follows an IT department team in a large company, and the wacky situations in which they become entangled.  Perhaps the highlight of the show for me was the CEO character played by actor Matt Berry.  He was arrogant, clueless and absolutely hysterical.  This…

    My Freegal Five Playlist

    by Kara Schroader 1. “Perfect World” 2. “After the Disco” 3. “Holding on for Life” 4. “Leave it Alone” 5. “The Changing Lights” At first, I thought about selecting a variety of music for my Freegal Five collection. Instead, I decided to go with songs I’ve been listening to repeatedly over the past few weeks—all five of which come from the same album, Broken Bells’ After the Disco. Broken Bells is composed of Brian Burton…
