Steubenville – Where it all Began (or Ended)

Steubenville – Where it all Began (or Ended)

Steubenville is a small Ohio town that borders West Virginia, just 30 minutes from Pennsylvania. In the 40’s-60’s, Steubenville earned the nicname “Little Chicago”, for its gambling, brothels, and drug deals. The birthplace of movie superstar Dean Martin, closed down factories and steel buildings line the cities edge that border the Ohio river. This is the town that changed my life. It was a clear blue day as we drove up the West Virginia turnpike. https://www.instagram.com/p/BDdeOclsOYu Crossing into Ohio through a town called Bridgeport, I began to see the remnants…

Court, Court, Court.

Court, Court, Court.

Court Court Court Court Court Court That’s all I seem to do. It seems that no matter what I do, signing off Twitter to enjoy the weekend,  it drives these stalkers nuts. 3 in particular. Its petty if you ask me. Grown people have nothing better to do than hide behind animated avatars and devote entire nights to mentioning my name. Flattered at first, but now its pathetic, obsessive, and in some cases, criminal in behavior. Stalking all hours of the night. They literally spend the entire night, and stalk every…

Cyber Investigation

Cyber Investigation

Cyber investigation is a growing industry. People often wonder who is behind what screen name, or maybe want to find a lost loved one.

Summer is Coming

Summer is Coming By: Deric Lostutter 29. I will be 29 years old. Where has the time gone? I remember like yesterday, skateboarding everywhere, waiting for the next c.d. to come out of my favorite artist or band. Anti-Jog was a technology that was amazing to us skateboarders at that time. Now we could cruise the streets and jam out without our music skipping! How far have I come since a youth though? What have I experienced? I grew up kind of rough. Typical lower-class american struggles. Some Christmases were…

Marriage – The Secret to Love and Happiness

Marriage – The Secret to Love and Happiness

“Where there is love there is life.” – Mahatma Gandhi   By: Deric Lostutter Marriage. I never thought that I would see the day. Really, I was an awkward teenager, and even more of a train wreck in my 20’s. I was a womanizer. I was always on the move, from party to party, searching for my next opportunity to fill the void in my life that I felt. I never knew what that void was. I knew I needed companionship, but I never knew how to stabilize my relationships…
