It was the fall of 2006 when an idea was born in Case Western Reserve University's Clarke Tower. Former CWRU music students John Knific and Marc Plotkin were sophomores with a plan, and with persistence and some help from a few of their peers, they soon became entrepreneurs.
Case Western Reserve University's Eldred Theater is about to kick off its production of The Last Night of Ballyhoo, a Tony Award-winning play by Alfred Uhry.
World-renowned composer and conductor Pierre Boulez turns 85 years old in just over a month, but from the exuberant, graceful manner in which he conducted the Cleveland Orchestra last weekend, he might as well have been a young man with experience beyond his years.
Happenings after a Cavs game at East 4th provided the truth behind Sammy Davis, Jr.'s statement, "Alcohol gives you infinite patience for stupidity." Round two of the Gateway District found me back on the area's main drag. Cheers!
Over the past few weeks, it seems as if the entire campus has caught the love bug with the "Buy a Crush for your crush" and "Roses for Haiti" ads everywhere. For some people, this holiday is a chance to celebrate being together, while for others it is a depressing "single awareness" scam.

With Valentine's Day coming up, we know you are all sitting on the edge of your awkwardly-shaped desk chairs ,frantically googling "fantastic Valentine's Day gifts," hoping that this time something new pops onto the screen screaming, "Buy me!

It would be horribly cliche; to talk about Valentine's Day the weekend before, but even avoiding the holiday has become a cliche.
