Heeeeeere’s Rocco! By Rocco Castellano What’s up b–ches? I’m back! I know all of you were wondering where I went … and the reason I know this is because I, as well as my editor, was inundated with calls and emails asking, “where the hell I had gone.” Now you don’t have to worry your […]

One of the Top Ten woman of the year, Marsha Bonhart.

Toast to joy By Marsha Bonhart Shhhh … I have a secret. It’s one I am willing to share, despite a decades long career as a “protect my sources, ride or die, never, ever tell” television news anchor/reporter. With this article, I take a bow in my swan song as contributing writer for Dayton City […]

To cry or not to cry By Marsha Bonhart It happens every time. For a lot of people, it’s beautiful music. For me, it’s the art of great dance, seeing movement that expertly creates a story told by strong, disciplined bodies that defy gravity and the law of physics. When I see that, I lose […]

Old friend, new friend By Marsha Bonhart I think it starts as soon as we make it to the sand box. Even as little girls we learn to vibe and connect with each other. It’s not anything we are told to do, it just morphs. And 20 years later, we instinctively follow each other into […]

girlcoughing

The cough that roars By Marsha Bonhart By definition, whooping cough is a bacterial infection that loves to live in your respiratory tract.  At first, it seems as if it’s an ordinary cold, but this contagious crud inflames your airways and creates thick, constant mucus. The bug is called Bordetella pertussis. Little kids—that is, those […]

Hark! We herald Frankye By Marsha Bonhart One of my favorite hymns as a child growing up in the Lutheran church was, “Hark!

I’m no Barbie girl By Marsha Bonhart I helped my parents save a lot of money when I was growing up. Tomboys only want a Louisville slugger, any kind of ball, a new baseball glove every now and then, a pair of Keds and a box of rubber bands to keep the braids and pony […]
