    Despite an overall decrease in dollars spent for the second year in a row, Black Friday shopping unfolded pretty much as expected nationwide: fistfights broke out in two separate malls in Kentucky, a woman in Virginia attacked a man with the chair she was using to save her place in line, and customers stampeded for TVs at a Walmart in Texas, resulting in a melee in which one shopper was caught on video trying to punch a police officer.

  • Antioch’s next president sees big promise in college’s challenges

    Thomas Manley spent a few days on the Antioch College campus last week after being announced as the second president of the revived college on Wednesday, Nov. 18. Manley will begin his tenure in March, 2016. He comes to Antioch from Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, where he’s served as president since 2003, revitalizing and transforming the college. (Photo by Audrey Hackett)

    Antioch College’s next president, Thomas Manley, has a quiet, even gentle voice. He’s not afraid of the thoughtful pause, both before and after speaking. He weighs his words like the student of poetry that he is — Kenneth Rexroth is a particular love.
