Organizers of the first Keokuk Rocks the Arts weekend want to see the community filled with out-of-town visitors and residents enjoying what Keokuk has to offer.

On the first day of school for my children, and for me too, I ran into my fifth grade teacher, Judy Marshall, in the County Market parking lot. Mrs. Marshall instilled a passion for history and archeology in her students, introduced me to The Diary Of Anne Frank, had us memorize portions of The Gettysburg Address and The Constitution of the United States of America, and bolstered my love of art.

And, given the lengthy touring cycle that each major album release generally spawns- the Avetts of last month's Newport Folk Festival with songs from The Carpenter- fans had no reason to expect new music this year.
