Angel of Death Haunted Trail

Chainsaws-a-go-go! If the USS Nightmare and the Dent Schoolhouse are the Hollywood haunts in town, this is surely the low-budget slasher flick. Costumes and props are spartan, but Angel of Death is hellishly, demonically scary.

Fall is upon us. Schools are back in session, football players are back on the gridiron and it’s time to begin thinking about preparing your home for winter. Aww, do I have to? It’s the age-old whine of reluctant homeowners everywhere: Do I really need to winterize my home? “You should if you want to save energy,” says Don McPherson, co-owner of Home Repair Solutions

Like Xerxes the Great in ancient Persia, local developer Ed Horgan is pursuing a vision to build an awe-inspiring empire of sorts in Cincinnati. Unlike Xerxes, though, he isn’t organizing far-reaching military conquests or invasions to make his vision a reality.

Dear Maija, A couple of my bros got a hold of a state-used ID printing machine and are about to make mass money selling fakes to other kids at UC. Would you judge me if I got my Cancun money doing this?

People from the Midwest already know how liberal Californians are — we hear all about their medical marijuana and interracial relationships on the news. But San Francisco is about to take it to the next level this fall with the strictest recycling rules this side of the Atlantic.  

Made by Women

Traditionally, as a woman, people expect you/me to make a lot of things: homes, babies, CityBeat Women’s Issues, etc. Thankfully, no one required me to get pregnant during the making of this special section. I probably would have said no. But since it’s already 2009, I figured we’ve been fighting for equality long enough that some of the social stigma has worn off of this Suzy Homemaker persona. Instead of revolting against her, we could probably recognize her, maybe even embrace her — but only if she said it was OK. Otherwise it’s sexual harrassment.

It seems young people are finally taking an interest in politics again. Ceair Baggett is 21 and a manager at Cincinnati Bell, overseeing some of their retail operations. He’s a graduate of Taft High School and Xavier University, lives in Mount Airy and owns a home in the West End he’s re-modeling. And he’s running for the Cincinnati Board of Education.

In what was a tough year all around, the visual arts scene in Greater Cincinnati managed to stay its ground in 2008. The primary presences are our museums, and they all had good years art-wise, although the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) was forced to make some staff layoffs late in the year as the national economy tanked.

Here are the 10 art shows that left the most impact on me in 2008, presented in no particular order and with regrets to the other fine exhibitions that just didn’t quite make this admittedly subjective list.  

We're Winning the Culture War

Statement of fact: Cincinnati Zoo = Good, Creation Museum = Evil. Let's be clear: It's evident to anyone with a brain that the Creation Museum is a horrible joke told by some seriously unfunny people, and the Cincinnati Zoo is a place of happiness, truth and light.
