A free workshop on writing love poetry at the DeWitt Community Library brings quirky and touching moments from community members.

Love can be an erupting volcano, purring, the emotional trajectory of a yo-yo or even an aardvark. These were just some of the thoughts shouted out by eager participants in a free love poetry workshop held at the DeWitt Community Library. Local poet and retired librarian Martin Willitts Jr., 65, had invited the dozen or so members of the crowd to expand their definition of love through free association, while he scrawled their responses on a large sheet of paper.

The NewsHouse team combed campus to see if Tyler and Katy could make loveable first impressions.

What if a stranger approached you on the street with a heart-shaped bouquet of fake roses, asking you to be their Valentine? Would you say yes? Would you walk away quickly?

Katy Beals and I took to the Hill to see how people would react to such a situation. Maybe it was the cold weather, maybe it was tacky fake roses, but the duo received mixed results during their casual competition. 

Perched outside Marshal Square Mall, between Schine Student Center and Newhouse and on the Quad, we tried multiple methods of finding Valentines on cold-yet-sunny February morning.

Even though the stroke has changed the Liverpool couple's lives, the two have only grown closer throughout the recovery process.

Review: Haneke's Palme d'Or winning film successfully portrays the visceral and tragic sides of a husband's devotion.

Shocking and brutally honest is Michael Haneke’s new movie, Amour. Most of the film takes place in the Parisian apartment of an 80-year-old couple who has to face a hard situation: She suffered a stroke and the right side of her body was paralyzed.
