Kudos to jazz enthusiasts Ron Busch and Anita Nonneman for their recent donation of the jazz club, The Bop Stop, to the Music Settlement.

Cleveland has long been a hot bed for music. It’s where record execs often brought their bands to break, and where local starry-eyed teens dreamed of making it big in the music business. Which is exactly what Clevelander - Mike Zaite, aka Doctor Z - did! But his office isn’t lined with gold records. Instead, you’ll find vacuum tubes, knobs and a bunch of copper wire hanging from his walls.

The comic strip Pearls Before Swine appears in the Plain Dealer and 600 other newspapers worldwide. It came about not because its creator, Stephan Pastis, had a passion for art, but because he got bored while studying to become an attorney. He never believed that a cartoon featuring a pig and a rat as its main characters would ever be syndicated, but, unhappy with his career as a lawyer, he started knocking on doors with strips in hand.

In most cases, the paper that artists work on is usually an afterthought - a place to put their chosen medium. But for artist Christine Weigand, the medium is the message. Weigand has a knack for turning paper into portraits and landscapes that look like fine paintings.
