Repealing the Fugitive Slave Law

In observance of the 150th anniversary of the repeal of the notorious Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, Oberlin Heritage Center docent and blogger Ron Gorman looks at the fervent crusade by Ohio Republicans to overturn the law.  Galvanized by the Oberlin-Wellington Rescue of 1858, impassioned locals initially were at odds with Illinois Republican Abraham Lincoln.  Gorman focuses on local political leader James Monroe, an Ohio state legislator, whose radical and controversial "personal liberty law" was accused by critics of stirring up an armed confrontation between the federal government and local law enforcement. 

Free and open to the public.

Oberlin Baseball Memories

Heritage Center Presents Oberlin Baseball Memories

Tuesday, July 1 is a great night for baseball!  Join lifelong Oberlinians Sid Comings and Marianne Cochrane as the present baseball stories aplenty from both sides of home plate - from the action on the field to the views from the sidelines.  This fun and relaxed presentation, hosted by the Oberlin Heritage Center, take place at Kendal at Oberlin's Heiser Auditorium (600 Kendal Drive) and begins at 7:15 PM.  The event is free and open to the public.

For baseball enthusiast Sid Comings, summer meant hitting fungos, repairing broken bats, fetching foul balls for umpires at the big kids' games, memorizing baseball statistics gleaned from Sporting News, and meeting legendary baseball promoter and franchise owner, Bill Veeck.  Sid quotes Pulitzer-Prize winning American columnist and author (and baseball fan) George F. Will: "My ardor for baseball was inversely proportional to my ability."

Marianne Cochrane, on the other hand, was a local legend and began playing women's fast-pitch softball with an adult team when she was in the 7th grade.  She was known for playing fine defensive ball with a batting average in the .300s.  Traveling all over Ohio and beyond, she helped her team make it to the state championship in 1952 where the 15-year-old Cochrane batted over .400 and collected four hits and scored two runs.

Sid Comings is a graduate of Oberlin College (OC '69).  He ran the music department in the Co-op Bookstore for 10 years and also served as an adjunct professor of writing at Lorain County Community College for over 25 years.  He has written numerous articles on various topics  - including baseball - that have appeared in many different publications.

Marianne Cochrane is an Oberlin business woman and a dedicated community volunteer.  She graduated from Grinnell College and was the owner/manager of the Ben Franklin Store in Oberlin for more than 40 years prior to retirement.  She is an Honorary Trustee of the Oberlin Heritage Center, having served on the organization's Board for 22 years, including 8 years as President.  Through the years, Cochrane also was active with the Oberlin Chamber of Commerce and various City of Oberlin commissions.

OBERLIN RESTAURANT WEEK: THE 21%

Help Nourish Our Families.

For almost 50 years Oberlin Community Services (OCS) has helped needy residents of Oberlin and surrounding areas with food, transportaion, utility and other kinds of assistance.  In recent years, however, the demand for basic fuood supplies has skyrocketed.  In 2013, 1,800 individuals took advantage of OCS food supplies each month; today, that number has jumped to 2,800 individuals.

A first-time event, "Oberiln Restaurant Week: The 21%" is designed to help OCS meet the ever-increasing demands for food.  Along with Oberlin College Radio Station WOBC (91.5FM), OCS has enlisted anumber of restaurants and food-service institutions in town to become partners in the fund-raising campaign to help supplement its food pantry.

The 21%.  According to the latest City of Oberoin data, close to 21% of the population of Oberlin lives below the federal poverty line.  Hence, OCS has chosen the 21% statistic as the rallying cry of Oberlin Restaurant Week.

Ww have asked each participating restaurant and food service institution to donate a minimum of 21% of the proceeds of reestaurant sales during a time frame of their choosing, on a specific day of their choosing, during Restaurant Week. (We'll post restaurant schedules soon on our Facebook pages.)

Fun-filled Festivities.  Restaurants are asked to create a special dish in honor of Restaurant Week.  We'll have a grand kick-off event on October 12, with bands and plenty of fun.  Then, for the finale on October 18, we invite all residents to a community picnic at OCS with music, dance and other festivities.

WOBC Radio.  Tune in to WOBC Radio in the weeks leading up to Restaurant Week.  You will learn more about the dire need for food supplies in Oberlin, hear from noted cookbook authors and get tasty tips on new recipes to try.

Be sure to look for a poster on store windows that identifies each participating restaurant!

THE CHRISTMAS DOLL

The MAD* Factory Players Proudly Present "THE CHRISTMAS DOLL"

Book, Music and Lyrics by Joan Cushing.  Adapted from the book by Elvira Woodruff and Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.

Set in 1840's London, Lucy and Glory Wolcott live at Grimstone Union Public Workhouse at the mercy of the cruel Matron Wick and Mistress Branch.  Lucy invents stories about a famiily she barely remembers and a long lost doll named Morning Glory to humor her sister.  When a deadly fever sweeps through the workhouse, the two sisters escape to the mean streets of London, where they encounter many colorful characters.  Now they must learn to survive on their own.  Finding an old discarded doll by the river that Glory believes is her long, lost doll, and teaming up with the beggar boy, Nick Button, Morning Glory leads the three on a journey that will change their lives forever, for Morning glory is no ordinary doll.

Bring the entire family to witness this heartwarming story.  Performances will be December 13 at 7 pm and December 14 at 2 pm at The First Church in Oberlin.

Tickets will be $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 at the door.

THE CHRISTMAS DOLL

The MAD* Factory Players Proudly Present "THE CHRISTMAS DOLL"

Book, Music and Lyrics by Joan Cushing.  Adapted from the book by Elvira Woodruff and Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.

Set in 1840's London, Lucy and Glory Wolcott live at Grimstone Union Public Workhouse at the mercy of the cruel Matron Wick and Mistress Branch.  Lucy invents stories about a famiily she barely remembers and a long lost doll named Morning Glory to humor her sister.  When a deadly fever sweeps through the workhouse, the two sisters escape to the mean streets of London, where they encounter many colorful characters.  Now they must learn to survive on their own.  Finding an old discarded doll by the river that Glory believes is her long, lost doll, and teaming up with the beggar boy, Nick Button, Morning Glory leads the three on a journey that will change their lives forever, for Morning glory is no ordinary doll.

Bring the entire family to witness this heartwarming story.  Performances will be December 13 at 7 pm and December 14 at 2 pm at The First Church in Oberlin.

Tickets will be $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 at the door.

Handel's Messiah Sing-a-long

If you are looking for something to put you into the holiday spirit, look no further.  This holiday tradition will have you on your feet, singing along with some of the most moving Christmas music ever composed.

"The audience serves as the choir," said Bethany Pereboom, assistant to the artistic director at Credo Chamber Music of Oberlin College.

Scores are available for rent for $5 on the night of the show. They go quickly.  

Money raised from the event will go to FAmily Promise of Lorain County, a rotating homeless shelter for families.  The moey raised by the sing-a-long helps to provide clothing for the children, purchase food from Second Harvest, and offer life skills training.
