But I mainly wanted to post enrollment information for my classes at Zane State College. The three of them can be signed up for as part of Zane State's summer program, and they cost just $20; that is to say, you can attend one without needing to attend any of the others. Right now only the first is available to sign up for, but the others should be opening to registrations soon enough. Each one will be a three-hour workshop covering all facets of our weird state.
The first class is:
Saturday, August 12
1-4 PM - Room 117A
"Weird Ohio, Forgotten Ohio: Exploring Local History Through Abandoned Landmarks and Ghostly Folklore"
Here's how to sign up:
Contact Shirley Hesson
(740)588-1324 or (740)432-6568
At any rate, it should be a good time, and I hope to see some people from the website there. And please bring your own local legends, ghost stories, and forgotten places to add to the discussion.
Here are the other two classes, to be held in the fall:
Saturday, September 30
"Forgotten Ohio History: Ghost Towns and Abandoned Landmarks"
Saturday, October 14
"Researching Ohio Hauntings: The Truth Behind the Legends"
I also want to mention my good friend Mandi's site, which isn't Forgotten Ohio-related but is certainly a cool personal website. Mandi and I have been close ever since we worked together on the 2004 presidential election, and she's a beautiful and charming girl and a fun person besides. Here's her site: RedheadsHaveMoreFun.com.
Anyway, short update. I'll be back with more soon. Take care.
