From the days of the gaslit opera houses through the era of the drive-in, the Mahoning Valley�s theatrical culture has thrived. The finest theaters in northeastern Ohio rose with the manufacturing might of the Steel Valley. The Warner brothers, who started their careers in Youngstown, opened their first theater in New Castle, Pennsylvania, and celebrities from Katharine Hepburn to Red Skelton graced local stages. The finest vaudevillians and the lovely ladies of burlesque were always a ticket away. Take a trip back to the Park Burlesque and the opulent Palace Theater and revisit the theater culture of Warren and Trumbull County. Author Sean T. Posey traces the evolution of modern cinema through the rich local history of the Mahoning Valley.

Electragliding USA: A Harley Trip with a Scotsman's Skew

These are some of the genteel phrases you will encounter in this book:-<br />-“Geeez-oh… John Muir hud his heid screwed oan!”…..,<br />-“This bike was built for Giants – you have to get it Telt!”….. and of course<br />-“That’s how we do it in Vegas Baby!”<br />Is it a travel book? Yes, it is a travel book in as far as it describes a Harley Davidson Trip covering a thousand miles of Western USA. However, it also not a travel book but a narrative of the trip of a lifetime for a normal Scotsman, running from the lunacy of Las Vegas; through the majestic Desert; the mighty Yosemite; the old-style of San Francisco; the biker’s dream of the Big Sur and the total and utter madness of L.A.<br />For potential bikers, each chapter has some facts about places to go, potential pitfalls and is perhaps a guide to anyone thinking of doing a similar trip. The fun part is a series of narratives (with more than a little Scotsman’s skew) sent back to Scotland during the trip. Some of the ridiculous anecdotes will raise a smile whereas others will show the difficulties that a biker or tourist could find along the way. I hope that they also convey the sense of surprised, wonder that I felt far more often than I could have predicted, along the way.<br />Whether you are an experienced biker, someone contemplating a similar trip, or just looking to hear some heartfelt or amusing anecdotes, I hope you will enjoy this book. Of my travels so far, this one has been the most varied and fun.<br />

Early in 1869, Nebraska�s legislature convened for the first time in the new capital city of Lincoln. Eager to reap the benefits of the Morrill Act, legislators quickly approved a bill establishing the University of Nebraska. Visionary lawmakers rejected the creation of two universities and determined that the state university and the state agricultural university should �be united as one educational institution.� Thus was born Nebraska�s great land grant and comprehensive research university that serves Nebraskans and the world beyond the state. Pulitzer Prize�winning authors, Olympic athletes, and Nobel Prize�winning scientists have launched their careers at the University of Nebraska�Lincoln, as have world-class artists, entertainers, educators, and business leaders.
North Alabama Beer: An Intoxicating History (American Palate)

Product Description
Customer Reviews
North Alabama built its fi rst commercial brewery in Huntsville in 1819, three months before the state joined the Union. Before Prohibition in 1915, the region was peppered with numerous saloons, taverns and dance halls. Locals still found ways to get their booze during Prohibition using Tennessee River steamboats and secret tunnels for smuggling. Alabama re-legalized beer in 1937, but it wasn�t until 2004, when the grass-roots organization Free the Hops took on the state�s harsh beer laws, that the craft beer scene really began to flourish. Authors Sarah B�langer and Kamara Bowling Davis trace the history of beer in North Alabama from the early saloon days to the craft beer explosion.

Once upon a time, the Conejo Valley was primarily home to the Chumash Indians, oak trees, and animals. Eventually, ranches took over, cowboys made the valley their home, and the area served as a country retreat for the adventurous people of Los Angeles. The producers of numerous movies and television shows took advantage of the natural beauty that could not be duplicated on a soundstage. Hollywood stars found privacy. Soon, word spread about the tranquility and wonderful opportunities of the Conejo Valley, and the growth began. Thousand Oaks received a name and boundaries and became a city, Lake Sherwood expanded, Hidden Valley was no longer so hidden, and the birth of Westlake Village brought the city to the country.
