The Community Arts Center will kick off its first installment of their new monthly "Lunch with the Arts" series, Wednesday. The lunch-hour event will feature Raleigh Dailey, an internationally-acclaimed jazz pianist, composer and scholar whose performances have been featured throughout the United States, South America, Europe and Asia. He also appears regularly with Miles Osland, with whom he completed a performing tour in Ecuador, South America.

Some make you laugh, others make you cringe, but there is always at least one that will make you stop and think. This is the goal of editorial cartoonist Joel Pett, who will lead a talk Wednesday about his particular brand of outspoken art. About the artist Pett got bitten by...

During the past week, I found that several of you do read my column and I sincerely appreciate it. Also by several of you I was reminded that I had forgotten a few things about early Winchester. One was the ice house, another was the incinerator that left a low, stinky, smoky look over our town. Yes, I remember those things well. I never did tour the ice house but I remember my family getting ice from a horse-drawn wagon. We had a big, red square piece of cardboard that we put in the window, with the sign turned to the requested size of ice ... 25, 50, 75 or 100 pounds of ice. The ice man would chisel off the size ice that we wanted, making the chips fly where they may. As I got older I thought that he really chipped a little faster than needed, but it gave the kids on the block the opportunity to pick up ice chips.
