Today, only about 20 percent of these theaters remain and two more local theaters are closing after the 2013 season. Learn more about these timeless drive-in theaters

June is berry month in Northeast (actually all over) Ohio. One of the delights of the season is going out to one of the "pick your own" farms for a pint, quart, or bushel of berries.
I just got an email from Secor's Nursery in Lake County that they will have berries ready to pick around June 7. Areas further in from Lake Erie will probably have berries a couple of days earlier. In fact, the berries are just starting to ripen all over the Buckeye state. For a comprehensive, by county, list of the area "pick your own" farms, click here
