Alec Snead, Luke Green, and Dan Roll began playing music together in the 7th grade at family cookouts. Soon they realized they needed a drummer and invited classmate Robert Rutledge to join the band. Amnesia has gone through several stylistic changes over the years reflecting the band members evolving musical tastes. The members are now recent high school graduates and have recently released their self-titled debut album.

The British historian Robert Service is a leading authority on Russian history with a particular expertise in the period between the October Revolution and the death of Stalin. He is the author of a dozen books including a trilogy of biographies on Lenin, Stalin, and Trotsky.
In his latest, "Spies and Commissars - the Early Years of the Russian Revolution," Service examines the four year period from 1917 to 1921 when the Bolsheviks were consolidating their power.
Officials with the Air Force Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base say they are ready to transition from 12 centers to 5 centers. The consolidation changes were announced in November of 2011 in response to the Defense Department's request to save money and to make operations more efficient.
The restructuring plan is expected to save the Air Force 109 million dollars a year.

Damselflies and daddy longlegs are everywhere when black raspberries come in. Mosquitoes, chiggers, and ticks have reached their summer strength. Giant black cricket hunters hunt crickets in the garden.
