Reading of Vergil's The Aeneid at the Cleveland Museum of Art's Armor Court

When I was in high school, one of my favorite subjects was Latin (I’ve said it before – I’m a huge nerd!). A lot of this can be credited to my amazing teacher Mrs. Betty Merrill, a legend at James Monroe H.S. in Virginia. My favorite part of class was that she challenged…

"See. Shop. Learn." at Crafty Goodness — New Arts Store Opening in Lakewood

Shore Cultural Centre Fundraiser in Euclid This Friday

  As much as I love Cleveland, the city has its fair share of problems from schools that need drastic improvements and issues in local government to poorly planned projects for city development. On the flip side, though, there are organizations that are legitimately trying to encourage the community’s involvement in discovering more of the Cleveland area and providing educational…
