    By Daisy Hutzell-Rodman

    Glenwood native Caitlin Staebell knows her passion.

    “I love being able to tell the larger story, and with theater and musicals, I can do that,” Staebell said.

    The 26-year-old’s love of storytelling recently led her to become one of 32 actors studying at East 15 School of Acting in London, a school rooted in political theater.

    “It was started by Margaret Bury, who uses the Joan Littlewood method (of acting),” Staebell said.

  • Sudden Death

    Dale Lingle thought his 16-year-old son was simply sleeping off a late night of computer and video games when he found him still lying in bed in the middle of the afternoon  July 18.

    More than two months after his death, Codie Lingle’s family finally knows with some certainty what caused the death of their son and brother.
