    Dirk Sayers: Author - West of Tomorrow

    in Writing

    Dirk Sayers was born in Hammond, Indiana and grew up in a university town, in Iowa. His formative years were spent with one foot in the simplicity of farm country and the other in the complexity of a university town immersed in science, technology and the social upheaval of the sixties.  He managed to survive it all, sometimes in spite of himself.

     After graduating from Iowa State University, he was commissioned a Lieutenant in the Marine Corps.  He served for 22 years on five continents, during peace and war. He was decorated five times and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel. On retiring, he discovered, (among other things), his  experience and six dollars would get him a cup of coffee everywhere…but not necessarily a job.  

    Dirk has published numerous articles and a few short stories as well as one non-fiction book, The Woman’s No-Fear Guide to Online Dating.   He has also finished a contemporary novel, WEST OF TOMORROW and is in the final throes of publishing it. He is also working on the first volume of a science fiction trilogy, under the working title of the Knolan Chronicles & an anthology of short stories, under the title THROUGH THE WINDSHIELD; HEAD-ON COLLISIONS WITH TRUTH.

    LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Darren Barrett’ - Debuts “Trumpet Vibes.

    in Music

    Darren Barrett’ - Debuts newly released seventh album, “Trumpet Vibes.

    For the first time in his award-winning career, the trumpeter-composer-producer explores his Jamaican roots on a recording project. Adeptly, the Boston-based artist from Toronto introduces good-time reggae rhythms and frenzied ska beats native to his parents’ Caribbean homeland to hard bop and swinging jazz on the eight-song set that he produced and wrote four new compositions.


    A charismatic companion to engage in meaningful discourse and occasionally play foe to his astute trumpet play, Barrett selected the vibraphone to share the spotlight as a featured “voice” throughout the session, with noted vibes soloist Warren Wolf guesting on a pair of tracks to participate in improvisational banter with a young trio comprised of vibist Simon Mouillier and brothers Alexander and Anthony Toth on bass and drums respectively. Also of significance is that Barrett opens the session by saluting his late mentor, trumpet great Donald Byrd, on the chirpy swinger “Fly Little Bird.” Interesting to hear him ply the jazz-meets-reggae motif to pop gems such as the regal “To Sir With Love” and amorous overtures like David Gates’ “Everything I Own” and Stevie Wonder’s “My Cherie Amour.” Barrett shines on his own compelling compositions, including the moody and murky “Chiapas”; the deliberate “Song For A Princess,” on which he takes his time – nearly seven minutes - to bop and blow while cruising a laidback island wave; “Phantom dB” that gets a jarring jolt of rock & roll drumming and some dissonant trumpet distortion; and the slightly more conventional straight-ahead jazz foray “The Club Up The Street” that wraps the disc.

    Cell Phone Tower Lease Agreements – Lessor’s Negotiating Power

    in Legal

    The cell tower market seems to be swinging slightly in favor of property owners. Lots of cell tower networks were constructed in the 90’s – now those leases are coming up for renewal, and over time, landlords have educated themselves and become smarter about what rates they should actually be getting – so it’s possible that rates might be on the rise. But landowners need to be careful and make sure they aren’t giving away the farm when negotiating these leases. In this podcast, attorney Kelly Anderson discusses the issues you need to consider in these negotiations.
