#131 Caroline Culbertson, On Stage and Off

(First airdate: March 12, 2019) CAROLINE CULBERTSON: A LIFE ON STAGE AND OFF. Our Town Host Maryanne McNellis, interviews Caroline Culbertson, who is now known for her wildlife art. But for much of her career, Caroline was an actress. She traveled around the country, appearing in stage productions both large and small. She has fond recollections of days performing in the Catskills in New York State (affectionately called the ‘Borscht Belt’) and not-so-fond memories of being mugged at knife point in New York City. She now makes her home on the Olympic Peninsula where nature’s beauty turned her artistic nature to painting.

This week on the Compass, host Charlie Bermant discusses the state of the modern media with local journalist Bill Lindstrom and former Port Townsend Leader owner Scott Wilson, who along with his family is featured in Lindstrom’s recently published book Strait Press, an exploration of the Northern Olympic Peninsula’s rich journalistic history.
