Ray Horner Podcast - 2/5/2019

:17 - Still smoking cigarettes? Well, you may want to avoid Hawaii as a vacation destination. The state is, for the lack of a better word, banning cigarettes for folks under 100. Ray and Tony talked about this topic, which Hawaii doesn’t mind taking the financial hit.

8:04 - 2019 is the 80th anniversary of one of, if not the greatest year in cinema history, 1939. Bob Ethington from the Akron-Summit County Public Library stopped by to talk about two iconic films from that year that are seeing re-releases: Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz.

23:28 - It’s Tuesday, and that means our tax guy, Doug Klein, dropped by the studio to discuss deductions here in tax season.

32:08 - Remember the Firestone Tournament of Champions at Riviera Lanes? The name may have changed and the decades have passed, but professional bowling is back in the area. Jerry Schneider does media relations with the PBA, and he previewed what’s to come this weekend with tournament play.

Akron Art Library Coming Soon

Soon, you will be able to check out a piece of local art like you can any library book, movie, or piece of music today. 

Through a partnership between the Akron-Summit County Public Library and the Akron Art Museum, beginning later this month, anyone with a library card will be able to check out local art for up to four weeks. Like any other item you can borrow from the library, you can renew the art, provided no one else has reserved it, for another four more weeks, up to 5 times. 

As of right now, there are 27 pieces of art that users can check out. 

Akron Art Museum Director of Education spoke with Cleveland.com saying, "We want to show we can trust the public with works of art." 

Having said that, the library says the fine for not returning a piece of art is $500, and late fees are a little heftier; 50 cents per day.
