When I look back and try to understand what happened the other day, I reach for impressions and feelings that, in recollection, become the story.

As Emily McCord reports, one local church is offering services to acknowledge that it's not always a Merry Christmas for everyone.

If I Were You

Nov 27, 2009

“If I Were You” was written by pulp fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard and tells the story of Little Tom Little, a circus dwarf who dreams of being full-sized and is forced to contend with the consequences when his dreams come true.

Conrad Balliet visits Excursions to share poetry and music with Niki Dakota.  They discuss the high quality and quantity of the poetry by writers in the Miami Valley and invite listeners to an upcoming poetry reading in Conrad's honor at Wittenberg University.

One quiet autumn morning the United States was suddenly attacked by a small band of determined men inspired by a charismatic religious fanatic. The emotional response by the entire country to an unprovoked raid, which caused the deaths of innocent civilians, lead the United States to war. The year was 1859, the place was Harpers Ferry, Virginia, and the leader was John Brown.
