Young couples often think they do not have enough assets to consider estate planning. The most important assets they have are their children and most young parents have not taken the time to plan for their children’s care if something were to happen to them.

Touchable Creations and more at this year’s Appetite for the Arts

Jose and Dani Herrara

“Look, don’t touch!” doesn’t apply to the work of Dani Herrera, one of the artists participating in the 2013 Appetite for the Arts, Aug. 16-18 at the Erie-Ottawa Regional Airport.

Herrera creates art from random scraps and other things she finds, such as buttons, zippers, dryer lint, newspaper and recycled materials. “I encourage people to touch it. I want them to feel what it’s made out of,” said the home-grown Toledo artist.


The circus comes to town

In the darkness Sunday evening at the Kelleys Island Ferry dock in Marblehead, the Kelly Martin circus arrived. The animals were out of sight in trucks and trailers, yet the excitement of the circus and the the colorful trailers being loaded for the half-hour trip to Kelleys Island brought out several carloads of onlookers. The circus will have shows on Kelleys Monday and Tuesday afternoons and evenings. This is the 12th year the circus has come to Kelleys Island.
