Immortalized by writers, filmmakers, and musicians from Stephen King to Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show, the cover of Rolling Stone magazine has embodied generations of popular culture. For artists, the cover is a coveted career achievement, and for many readers, it represents a fantasy realm of the rock-n-roll lifestyle. The exhibition Backstage Pass: Baron Wolman and the Early Years of Rolling Stone explores how the lens of one artist's camera captured and helped define one of the most important eras in rock-n-roll history. The exhibition opens January 28th, 2017 at the Marietta Museum of History where it will be on view through March 18th, 2017.

In order to continue to improve relationships and build more bridges with the community we serve, the Marietta Police Department is reaching out to yet another group; the news media. The news media plays a major role in forming the narrative by which the police relate to the community. The fact is that the news media today works in an environment that involves tremendous time pressure and competition in their field. The continuous news cycle creates a constant hunger for stories and reports and thus reporters now rush from story to story and news assignment editors work in an environment that is fiercely competitive with one another and the social media. Therefore when they are covering stories about the police, they are often frustrated and feel thwarted when they encounter police practices or priorities with which they are not completely familiar.
