As “Fiddler on the Roof” is performed in the Devries Theatre, you’ll hear music, see dancing and watch characters come to life. But Danielle Hutchison heard the music long before opening night.
Hutchison, a junior music major and rehearsal pianist for “Fiddler,” had learned much of the music by last fall’s auditions for the show, said Chandler Hull, who plays Tevye’s daughter Tzeitel.
“She mastered this music,” Hull said. “It’s difficult music, and she came into ...
Salt Shortage and Safety Challenge Snow Crew
For David Orr, Cedarville’s director of landscaping and grounds maintenance, the onset of winter means more than runny noses and extra layers. For Orr and the rest of the maintenance crew, the change of seasons brings long days of battling the wind and snow to keep campus safe.
The process begins in September, Orr said, when he begins monitoring the forecast for the coming winter. Then, the crew begins to prepare the equipment used for clearing roads and sidewalks, getting all 12 pieces of ...
Soccer Coach Serves Students for 40 Years
When John McGillivray started coaching soccer at Cedarville College in 1974, Richard Nixon resigned, Leonardo DiCaprio entered the world, gas cost 55 cents a gallon and Cedarville students paid $30 per credit hour.

‘Parks and Recreation’ Returns For Final Season
The NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation” is an unlikely hero in the television world. In what would, at first blush, appear to be a money-grab riding on the coattails of “The Office,” the public servants of Pawnee have proved once again what the right combination of people are capable of.

Is Speech Ever Free?
Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical newspaper, is making news once again. This time, it’s for riots that have been sparked in Niger in response to the cartoons published in the most recent issue of the magazine. The cartoons were meant to make a statement to terrorists letting them know they have not succeeded in silencing the magazine. But at what cost?
Part of the reason the shooting at Charlie Hebdo struck a nerve with the American public was because attacks on freedom of speech were ...
Album Review: ‘I Will Follow’
Jeremy Camp’s latest album “I Will Follow” is much more high-energy than his previous albums, and though the lyrics are still convicting, this album’s songs are a little less likely to be sung during Sunday morning worship.

The album’s first track, “Living Word,” places you right into the jump-and-dance, fist-pumping, Christian-concert-like music that’s the majority of the album. “Liv...
