This year’s Carbondale Celtic Fest was a big hit and the best one yet. The fall weather was ideal, and downtown historic Carbondale took on a definite Celtic shine. Maybe it was the bagpipes played by Will Lamont and Jason Anderson, or perhaps the hilarious Men in Kilts Contest. We also loved hearing two bands play and appreciate the music of Craig and Lorraine Curry and Don and April Paine. All of the wonderful food and drink sure helped, too.The town of Carbondale staff really knows how to put on a great community party. Be sure to thank the town board, especially Becky McCarthy and Jeff Jackel. Becky and her team worked tirelessly all weekend helping make this the best Celtic Fest and Oktoberfest ever. Lots of fun for everyone.We enjoyed the first Scotch and Irish whiskey tasting and discussion in Steve’s Guitars. Thanks to John Colson, Jock Jacober and Michael Hassig for sharing their fine Celtic spirits with the audience. The poetry and verse they read were beautiful.This was the last weekend of outdoor festivals for 2007, and marks the end of the best year yet for entertainment in little old Carbondale. Hope you were able to enjoy some of it. Steve StandifordSteve’s GuitarsCarbondale

Thank you to all of the wonderful people in the community who helped make the Henry Akim Gama benefit fundraiser such a huge success. It is great to see so many people in support of our good friend Akim. Thank you especially to Cowboy Attitude, Christina, Rob, and the wonderful staff at Rivers for putting together an excellent time for all. To those of you in the business community who had donated items for the silent auction and raffle, as well as those individuals who make personal contributions to Akim’s fund, I cannot express enough gratitude. Akim is lucky to have so many people show him support. We will use this fund to do whatever we can to help out our dear family member.Anita Wan, general manager, Rivers restaurant
