The Creative Spotlight: 2014 Review

Written by: Frank Iacono


In an article entitled “There’s Just No Explaining 2014,”by Pulitzer Prize-winning humor columnist and author Dave Barry, he described 2014 as a year of mysteries. To illustrate, Barry cited some of the more baffling occurrences including the invasion of the nation by the polar vortex, the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the beheadings by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the viral acceptance of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, the security breech at the White House, the violent protests in Ferguson, Missouri, the arrival of the Ebola virus, and the monster snowstorm that dumped more than four feet of snow on Buffalo, New York.

Now when it comes to The Creative Spotlight there is no mystery. The goal of The Creative Spotlight is to introduce readers to local musicians, artists, business owners, motivational speakers, photographers, and other published authors.
