Performer Liza Minnelli and playwright Edward Albee also issued statements about Mr. Kuchwara.
“There’s so little good in a theater predominantly involved with commerce and popularity, as opposed to excellence, that the loss of an intelligent and perceptive critic like Michael Kuchwara is an especially sad note,” said Mr. Albee.
Wind farm planned for Lake Erie
GE and the nonprofit Lake Erie Energy Development Corp., or LEEDCo, on Monday announced a partnership to develop five wind turbines in the lake to generate 20 megawatts of power by 2012. The project aims generate 1,000 megawatts by 2020.
GE, based in Fairfield, Conn., will build the turbines and provide maintenance, the partners said in a statement released from the annual conference of the American Wind Energy Association in Dallas. In 2009, GE had 44 percent of the U.S. wind-turbine manufacturing market.
The first cluster of towers will be built about 6 miles north of Cleveland Browns stadium and stand about 200 feet tall. The wind will turn blades up to 150 feet long, producing enough electricity to power up to 7,000 homes, said Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason, who chaired a local task force that established LEEDCo.
Governor’s coyote run-in spurs new gun
AUSTIN | Gov. Rick Perry’s showdown on the jogging trail has spurred a gun maker to sell a “Coyote Special” edition of the weapon he used to bring down a varmint.
Strum, Ruger & Co. Inc., which makes the .380-caliber pistol Perry used to shoot a coyote he said was threatening his dog, has come out with a limited-edition version.
It is emblazoned with “Coyote Special” and “A True Texan” on the sides. On top is a picture of a coyote howling at the moon and five-pointed star of Texas.
The gun sells for about $340. A laser sight — like the one Mr. Perry uses — will cost about $180 more. The box says the gun is “for sale to Texans only.”
