Multimedia journalist Rich Harbert looks back at 2017 from his beat's point of view.
First in his class
Greyson Pimentel became an instant celebrity in January when the checked in as Plymouth’s first newborn of the year. The little boy from Manomet arrived with relatively little fuss and no competition on Jan. 3, weighing in at 8 pounds exactly.
“Gary, Make the Call”
Plymouth North sophomore Emmie Kelly became an overnight sensation in January as well with a song aimed at getting Superintendent of Schools Gary Maestas to call a snow day and cancel classes. Kelly wrote the “Gary, Make the Call,” while procrastinating over homework and recorded it while playing a ukulele. She posted the results on her twitter feed.
Through thin ice
Two local police officers needed rescuing after falling through thin ice while trying to save a fisherman who also fell in a pond in Manomet. The drama unfolded off Clearwater Drive after a 67-year-old man fell through ice while fishing with a friend. All..
DUNEDIN – The Miniature Art Society of Florida will be invading Dunedin soon.
According to Ken Hannon, vice president and chief operating officer at Dunedin Fine Art Center, it always seems like an invasion when the society annual competition opens for exhibit at the facility.
This year’s annual exhibition will open Sunday, Jan. 14, and will continue through Sunday, Feb. 4, at the Dunedin Fine Art Center, 1143 Michigan Blvd., Dunedin.
“Though the works are tiny, the crowds are huge,” said George Ann Bissett, president of DFAC. “There’s obviously something magical about these small works.”
Approximately 700 works of art will be shown, including the society’s permanent collection of more than 100 miniatures. Entries from around the world and across the country provide a wonderful diversity of subject matter and framing techniques.
In addition to the works on display, starting Monday, Jan. 15 through the end of the show, artists from England, Canada and many U.S. states including Florida ..
Giovanni Mezzogiorno stars in director Ferzan Ozpetek’s mystery-shrouded thriller about lost love and memory. A gluttonous feast of Neapolitan art and culture, Ferzan Ozpetek’s new thriller Naples in Veils (Napoli velata) celebrates the oft-maligned Italian city as an ancient source of mystery, whose Baroque palaces and streets are the moody backdrop to a morbid story of lost love and repressed memories. Co-produced by Warner Bros. Entertainment Italia, the film has benefited from wide domestic holiday release and should have little trouble tapping into cultivated Italophile audiences abroad.
The sensual photography, music and locations are so entrancing, in fact, they help the viewer to overlook the weak storyline, which prefers psychological ambiguity to solid police work. Star Giovanna Mezzogiorno (Facing Windows) is subdued in the role of a medical examiner who finds the people she loves violently snatched away from her, and when she falls for a guy who comes on to her at a party, ..
Turkey cannot be excluded from the enlargement process of the EU, Deputy EU Minister Ali Şahin said on Tuesday.
"Lately, we see that the EU discriminates between the candidate countries and it places stress on mostly Western Balkans.
"It is unacceptable to exclude Turkey from this enlargement process. It should not be forgotten that Turkey is a candidate country," Sahin said during a reception at the Erimtan Archeology and Arts Museum in the capital Ankara.
Sahin said a "constructive approach" on Turkey-EU relations will contribute not only to the region's stability but also the world.
"Taking positive steps regarding this enlargement process is also essential for EU's image. If not, the EU may not continue to be a soft power," he added.
Sahin said Ankara expects "concrete and constructive" steps from Bulgaria -- which currently holds the presidency of the EU Council -- for Turkey's candidacy.
He added a summit between Turkey and the EU should be held during Bulgaria..
