“Cleveland Museum of Art’s “Jazz Age” show is a glittery, ebullient knockout”

Exciting things continue to happen in our hometown of Cleveland! September 30 marked the debut of the latest exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art: The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920’s. The lavish display incorporates roughly 320 examples of fashion, fabrics, sculpture, painting, photography, posters, home decor, and more, and is a truly impressive creation. It is the first major museum exhibition that focuses on the stylings of American art and design during the the 1920s and early 1930s.

Happy National Fall Foliage Week!

The leaves are starting to change in Ohio! Below is a picture of Squire’s Castle, a one-of-a-kind landmark located within the Cleveland Metroparks. The castle was originally built in the 1890’s as a gatekeeper’s lodge, but the plans to build an accompanying mansion never came to fruition. Instead, Feargus B. Squire used the home as a weekend retreat, enjoying the scenery of the surrounding Chagrin Valley.

Today, Squire’s Castle and the surrounding property is open to the public. If you find yourself in our neck of the woods this season, we highly recommend visiting this beautiful structure in person!

“Wreck victim identified”, in NC Work Zone Crash

From the article:

Baker said the initial collision between the Ford and Mazda led to a chain reaction that involved three other unidentified vehicles being pushed into one another. Only one injury was reported in that second accident. Baker added the wreck backed up traffic along the highway into a work zone where a group of N.C. Department of

Transportation workers had just finished working for the day. The workers were re-opening both eastbound lanes of the highway at the time, according to his statement.

Andrew Barksdale, N.C. Department of Transportation public relations officer, Divisions 4, 6 and 8, confirmed Baker’s statement and responded to comments from some about the signage used by the agency in its work at the time.

“We had contract crews at the site that were just finishing up cutting rumble strips when the wreck happened,” Barksdale said. “None of our contract workers were injured. In regards to concerns about signage, the workers followed proper procedure with signage including the use of a sign on a truck.”

From the article:

“There’s been a lot of construction on I-40 lately, whether it’s pavement on Old Fort Mountain, ongoing bridge maintenance, guard rail maintenance and a lot of lane closures,” said Cline. “In the last few weeks, we’ve seen an increase in collisions on the interstate, all of them being rear-end. We strongly advise that drivers use caution and pay attention to signage when traveling towards incoming construction. This is a tragic, unfortunate circumstance with a lot of factors at play.”

“Flagger nearly hit during three-car crash on Hwy 195 construction zone”, in WA State

The article in full:

One person is in the hospital following a three-car crash on Highway 195 in Whitman County Wednesday.

The crash happened seven miles north of Colfax when a driver didn’t stop for traffic.

“I just threw my stop sign down and turned to run to safety,” said Tamar Arcano. “I was just standing here flagging and I had my stop sign out and the gentleman in the van came to a complete stop. Then I looked up and saw that the truck was not slowing down. He was going pretty fast and went full bore into the back of the van.”

Arcano got to safety in the nick of time. She could have been pinned between the van and her parked car if she didn’t get out of the way.

“I hit the dirt and then I came over to check on injuries,” said Arcano. “Nothing like this has ever happened to me before.”

Arcano and another man helped pull an unconscious driver to safety after smelling gasoline.

The Washington State Patrol in investigating the crash. They say early reports indicate distracted driving is the cause.

The extent of one of the drivers injuries are unknown at this time.
