Many claim funk music has its roots in Dayton, and local artists paid homage to it in this year’s annual “Visual Voices” exhibit at the city’s Victoria Theatre, where artists were challenged to create visual art that captures the essence and flavor of the Dayton funk sound.
Colorado Victim Mourned At Funeral
Mourners packed an Ohio church to remember a victim of the shooting spree at a Colorado movie theater.
Pastors at 27-year-old Matt McQuinn’s funeral in his western Ohio hometown of Springfield spoke Saturday of the senselessness of the July 20 massacre in Aurora, Colo., that killed 12 and wounded 58 others, and of McQuinn’s sacrifice.
McQuinn saved his girlfriend’s life by diving in front of her and taking three bullets. He had just moved to Colorado last fall.
