Country Stars Who Appeared on Dick Clark’s ‘American Bandstand’ [VIDEOS]

It was definitely sad to hear of Dick Clark's passing on Wednesday. With his broadcast career beginning in Utica in the 1940s, he had done so much over the years for the entertainment world, especially in the realm of music. Clark was host on one of the best known music shows of all time 'American Bandstand,' which was on the air from 1952 to 1989--with Clark as host beginning in 1956. And, over the years the show was broadcast, many famous country stars appeared on the show.

Today: Celebrate Haiku Poetry

April is National Poetry Month--a full month dedicated to the art of poetry. One of my favorite types of poetry happens to be the haiku. That's why today I'm excited to celebrate National Haiku Poetry Day. It's a day to celebrate a style of poetry originally from Japan that restricts the writer to three lines--the first line consists of five syllables, the second line has seven syllables and the third line has five syllables.

The Way to a Healthy Lawn and Garden

On a hot, summer-like day like today, it's hard not for one's mind to wander and think about all the yard work they have to do and the length of the grass. Well, at least that's what my mind thought about today. Now that the spring season seems to be in full swing, although I wouldn't rule out a snowstorm, it's time to think about keeping those lawns and gardens healthy. And, thanks to advice from Troy-Built, a manufacturer of outdoor power equipment, we have some tips to keep our yards the talk of the neighborhood.

Zach’s Top 5 Favorite Reba McEntire Songs [MUSIC]

Although I do consider myself young, I'm old enough to remember a time when there was no Internet. And, before there was the Internet, if you were a fan of somebody, you joined a fan club. Way before Facebook Fan Pages, you got stuff in the mail every once in a while, a holiday card around the holidays, and a glossy 8x10 photo of the person you were a fan of. I took

It’s Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month

It's a hard thing for many pet owners to think about--especially, if your pet is a part of the family: Animal cruelty. Animal cruelty happens all over the world, and it has reared its ugly head in this area, with a recent case of animal neglect in Utica and the highly-publicised case of Apollo--the dog left outside in below-zero weather, just to name a few. The month of April is dedicated to preventing the neglect, abuse and cruelty inflicted on animals. This month is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month. And, in recognition of it, experts with The American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) have some signs to look for if you believe an animal to be abused.
