Oct 15 Reading from "Lazarus"

I'll be reading my poetry on Oct 15th at the Out North theater on DeBarr near Bragaw Street. I'll be reading from "Lazarus on a Spur Line". The Poetry Parley on the works of Poe starts at 7:00 pm. I'll be on after that. By the way, you might want to check out the Tony Award winning HBO Def Poetry Jam Slam Poet Georgia Me ("Queen of Spoken Word") the week before on October 6th. And the following month, on Novemeber 1st, check out Rafael Casal. See their entire schedule, visit the Out North website

Fire Service Conference, Juneau, Alaska

After 5 days in Juneau (and nights), I dragged back to Eagle River remembering why I love the fire service. I want to thank all the firefighters and fire officers who attended my classes of disaster response and recovery. The material was taken right out of my book, "Fire and Ice", which many of you purchased. I hope you enjoy the rest of the book and I'm sure I'll see some of you for my classes at the EMS Symposium November 12-15. By the way, everyone is still talking about the speech made by Chief Bobby Halton (ret.) the Editor in Chief of Fire Engineering Magazine.

"Emotionally Disturbed"

Did you hear that Stu Schulman's new CD "Emotionally Disturbed" is done and ready for sale? It's $15 bucks (apparantly Stu met someone who actually has 15 bucks) and is available initially through Surreal Studios. Can't wait to hear it. The first time I gigged with Stu, during a lull, he started playing "Over the Rainbow" on peddle steel. I joined in on tenor, and it was haunting. Congratulations, Stu.
