Outspoken Journalists Promotes His Two Books of Ficton: 'Look Not Unto the Morrow' and 'My Burden is Light'
by BWW News Desk - Nov 2, 2013

"Look Not Unto the Morrow" is a Vietnam-era, anti-war love story. Innocence shattered and ultimate redemption are portrayed against the backdrop of the Vietnam War and the turbulent sixties. The story follows the lives of three young people as they experience love and war. Roger Gaines is the promising young college student, drafted into the army and traumatized by his experiences in Basic Training and Vietnam. Pam Wentworth is the loving girlfriend he leaves behind, who evolves from naive college student, to political activist, to radical anarchist. Michelle Healy is the young woman Roger meets when he returns home, who loves him unconditionally when he can no longer love himself. Book Information: Look Not Unto The Morrow Author: Robert Fantina Publisher: Whiskey Creek Press ISBN: 978-1611605495 Published: December 2012 Pages: 308 Genre: Literary, War When Bryant Harkin, a 19-year-old member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, admits to his twin brother that he's gay, he expects an initial reaction of shock, followed quickly by acceptance. He has vowed to himself that he will bear any burden in order to remain a fully active member of the Church, and is devastated when his brother, his closest friend, rejects him completely. Bryant keeps his secret, and experiences desperate loneliness and depression, relying on prayer and supportive bishops to see him through. Ultimately, he recognizes his worth, and leads a satisfying life as a single member of the Church. A story of tolerance, acceptance, and forgiveness, "My Burden is Light" discusses a current topic in a sensitive manner, and will uplift and inspire all those who read it.

BWW Reviews: THE CASUALTIES OF WAR
by Kristen Morale - Mar 24, 2014

It would be wise to call this as a great piece of theater, yet there is so much more to say about Bill Holland's Hounds of War, it would be a shame to simply refer to this wonderful play as just another show to go and see on a Saturday night. Upon seeing a show, being part of an audience that has witnessed a given story from beginning to end, there are certain ones that a person knows are special - ones that, when actor and script meet, you know will be something special. Holland has created something more than a simple plot with a beginning, middle and end, relinquished from the minds of those who saw within a few days of their attendance. His genius in writing this play has created something much more lasting - a theatrical experience, really, that not only captures the attention of the audience, but is also able to delve deep inside the minds of each character and so intricately and carefully dissect each part of his or her mind so that no idea, no feeling or emotion goes unnoticed. The characters seen upon the stage at the Dorothy Strelsin Theatre turn into actual people, and combined with the psychological complexity of the plot, form a production that is incredibly unique and admirable to all playwrights ever hoping to write the next great story.

Original Mud Run Benefits Coalition Salutes America's Heroes Today
by BWW News Desk - Apr 5, 2014

It's time to get dirty! And while you're at it, why not support wounded veterans of the global war on terrorism? Today, April 5, you can do both when the Original Mud Run returns to North Texas. Race organizers will donate $10 to the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes for every runner that registers using the code HERO2014. All funds will be dedicated to the Coalition's 'Heroes Thanking Heroes' program, which provides part-time, flexible employment, Basic Training and work experience to wounded veterans, thereby preparing them for other potential jobs requiring similar skills. 'My wife Sarah and I have competed in several similar runs, and the Original Mud Run looked awesome,' said Donny Daughenbaugh, a retired Marine who was shot in the face in Iraq and now serves as Regional Vice President of the Coalition. 'So as we were signing up for this year's run, I decided to contact the organizers to see if they would be willing to make the Coalition a beneficiary of their race series. When they learned about our 'Heroes Thanking Heroes' program, they immediately grasped its significance and pledged their support.' The Original Mud Run's North Texas stop will be held Today, April 5, at 900 Bear Creek Road in Lancaster. This year's event features two military-style obstacle courses - a 5K with 20-plus obstacles and a 10K with 30-40 obstacles - for runners 12 years and older. A one-mile course is available for younger mudders. The race heads to Nashville on May 3 and Houston on May 24. Those races will likewise benefit the Coalition. 'The Coalition to Salute America's Heroes is doing extraordinary work when it comes to serving our combat wounded men and women,' said Vanessa Vavra, Marketing Director for Mud Run. 'The mud run concept was the brainchild of our Race Director, a former Marine who was a part of the very first mud runs ever organized in the US while based in California in the late 1980s. We're especially impressed by the 'Heroes Thanking Heroes' program and hope everyone will come out Today, use the HERO2014 code and help us raise some much needed funding for this great organization.' Based in Leesburg, VA, the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes has provided an invaluable lifeline to thousands of America's wounded veterans since its establishment in 2004. The organization is distinguished from other veteran-focused groups by its direct financial assistance to America's wounded heroes. Its Emergency Financial Aid program has stopped foreclosure proceedings on veterans' homes and kept their vehicles from being repossessed. The organization regularly provides gift checks to cover meals, medical and utility bills, clothing, car repairs and even baby diapers.
