Love the concept.. Even though the Bridge School is a great cause, wouldn't it be more appropriate to donate the proceeds to something related to the fall-out from this senseless war?

This is a FREE event. We have artists coming from the east coast, the west coast and Canada. All the artist are paying out of their own pockets for all travel expenses. We are tossing around possibly selling tee shirts.. that would be the only source of income for this show. The Bridge School was chosen because it was Neils Living With War Today page that brought these artist together.
This is not your typical show where you pay at the door for an evening of music. This is a free concert in a park. Pack a lunch and bring your blankets and chairs.

We are also very honored to announce that Anita Dennis (mother of Iraq veteran and resister Darrell Anderson) and Darrell Anderson (Iraq veteran and resister) will be attending as guest speakers. There will be several veteran and anti war groups set up with info tables ready to speak to you, as well as a register to vote table.
This will be a day of peace... music and TRUTH.

Hope to see ya there.

Never mind the link ... here's the article ..

for Cincinnati.Com


A walk in the park: Devou Park
Devou an ideal place for city dwellers and country-minded



D E V O U P A R K

Golf course: The course is open seven days a week. Greens fees are $19 ($11 for seniors) Monday-Friday before 11 a.m. Nine-hole rates are $11.50 ($7 for seniors) Monday-Friday before 11 a.m. Visit Cincinnati.Com's Golf Guide for complete details and a course review.

Museum: The museum is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from 1-5 p.m. It is closed on Mondays, most holidays, and during the month of January. Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children and seniors. For more information, call the museum at (859) 491-4003.

Directions: Take I-75 South to the Kentucky 1072/Ft. Wright exit. Turn right off the exit and turn right onto Dixie Highway. Take Dixie Highway one block to Sleepy Hollow Rd. and turn left. Follow the road 1.7 miles to the park's entrance on the right. Follow Devou Park Rd. until it dead ends into Montague. Turn right for available parking in the golf course and tennis complex parking lot.

Q U I C K F A C T S

The 550-acre tract of land which is Devou Park was donated to the city of Covington in 1910. The Behringer-Crawford Museum, after a one-year hiatus to allow an independent board of trustees to take over its management, reopened in 1980.



When it comes to the great outdoors I must admit to being somewhat ambivalent.

I'm a country boy at heart, but having spent the last decade of my life in the city, I've grown to enjoy the comforts of the urban jungle.

Which is why I intend to return to Devou Park soon.

Situated a stone's throw off Dixie Highway in Covington, Devou Park is the perfect merger of the city and the country.

On one hand, there's the breathtaking view of downtown Cincinnati and Covington--one of the best in the city--reminding the viewer that he is not too far from the city and its bubbling cauldron of activity. On the other hand, there is the peaceful, almost overbearing tranquility of a 1¼-mile nature trail leading away from civilization and into a world that offers ample opportunity for quiet reflection or vigorous exercise.

Regretfully, aside from the Nature Trail, Devou offers no hiking or biking paths for its exercise-conscious visitors, which is a shame because the park boasts dozens of hills which would make a strenuous workout for even the most well-toned jogger or biker. You can still do so along many of the park's roads, but the presence of automobile traffic makes such an undertaking hazardous.

If hiking or biking isn't to your liking, Devou Park has an 18-hole golf course, which also affords spectacular views of the Cincinnati/Covington basin. Opened in 1928, the course underwent a major renovation in 1995 in which nine new holes were added and one other was altered. Also, the park's natural amphitheater, when it's not playing summer host to the Northern Kentucky Symphony Orchestra concert series, is the perfect place for a midday picnic or sunbathing session.

Another highlight is the Behringer-Crawford Museum, which opened in 1950 and houses an extensive collection of artifacts, paintings and other exhibits examining the area's natural history.

But the real draw of Devou is the feeling of escape one gets with just a few steps along the Nature Trail. Surrounded by towering trees casting a canopy of impenetrable shade that protects a visitor from the heat of the mid-afternoon sun, it's easy to forget you're three miles from downtown Cincinnati. Yes, I could get used to this country thing again.

If you have general questions about the area, hotels, camping, food, etc. you can drop me a line at threedeehs@yahoo.com.

Covington's like a small tourist town without the tourists. (They even have an aquarium nearby...not anywhere on the scale of Monteray or Boston but it has fish.)

The visitor and convention bureau number there in Covington is 1- 859- 261-4677 (this is not toll free) but I'm sure it's not yet on their schedule yet.

There's also this really interesting webblog http://covington.blogspot.com that pretty much gives you a good overview of the region and why I can't think of a better place to hold a concert for peace.
