HURON If you think soap operas can be fast and funny, check out "The Miser" and his kooky household currently on stage in McBride Auditorium at Firelands College Theatre. There are silly characters, elaborate costumes and fun wigs to boot. Situations are pleasantly ridiculous. Action moves briskly. And communications get wildly confusing as the production builds to a frenetic, comedic peak. "The Miser" was written by Jean Baptiste Poquelin (1622-1673) who used the name Moliere to spare his family embarrassment in a time when theater was not considered a respectable profession. Besides being a playwright, Moliere was also an actor and a director. He wrote such scintillating satire that 33 of his plays still entertain audiences around the world today. In his day, Moliere was a favorite of King Louis XIV. Moliere excelled in domestic comedies which targeted hypocrisy. "The Miser" is no exception. Here the miser is Harpagon, a stingy, cantankerous old geezer who would rather have his fortune than his children. Anthony Gardner plays him well. His slender build and long, narrow face help to sell the look. Age makeup isn't bad but could be even stronger and should include both neck and hands. Gardner's voice and expressions work very well. Yet posture and movement could be more aged. Wild eyed bewilderment and frantic movements escalate nicely. All things considered, he's a very funny miser.

Last weekend marked the annual conference of the Outdoor Writers of Ohio, an event held this year at Hueston Woods State Park in southwestern Ohio. It was a good event attended by some fine newspaper and magazine folks, but more important the weekend drew people who have a serious interest in the out-of-doors and were willing to pass their expertise on to my readers. One such person was Rod White of Mt Pleasant, Iowa. White has been a pro archer for 14 years, a man good enough to shoot in events like Buckmasters and ESPN's Great Outdoor Games. He won an Olympic gold medal for archery in 1996 and a bronze in Australia in 2000. In short, this man knows his business. He's also a hunter, one who's bagged 27 whitetails that tallied from 130 to 190 points in Iowa, Illinois and Kansas. So, what's his advice for beginning Huron County archers who want to bag a deer with a bow?
