COMEDY OF ERRORS
By H.G. Welch Boiling Point Players continues to entertain with new twists on old classics with their production of Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.

Why I Care About Farmer's Markets
When we think about the good life, art and food rank pretty high in importance. The food industry consistently engages in deceptive marketing that confuses consumers. One way this is done is by throwing around terms that have no meaning under federal guidelines, such as dressing up chips as being "natural."
