WJER has partnered with Union Hospital to “Paint Tusc Pink” for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. To participate in this event to raise awareness in the fight against breast cancer, just prepare a pink-themed display at your business, school, organization, or other spot in Tuscarawas County, then email so they can take photos and provide you with a "Paint Tusc Pink" yard sign. Look for your photos on WJER and Union Hospital’s Facebook pages and websites! You could even be featured in a story on WJER Radio! This event is sponsored by Union Hospital's Community Health & Wellness Department, the Regional Cancer Center at Union Hospital and the Tuscarawas County Chamber of Commerce.

Review: Sara Evans at the Performing Arts Center at Kent State Tuscarawas

Country music superstar Sara Evans lit up the Performing Arts Center stage Thursday evening with her powerful voice. Evans is probably best known for her hit “Suds in the Bucket,” which received the strongest applause of the night. She also performed songs off her latest albums, including “A Little Bit Stronger” and “Slow Me Down.” She even concluded the show with a crowd favorite, “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon, and let me say I enjoyed her version much more! Evans noted she likes to record songs about love and heartbreak and songs that truly mean something to her listeners. She also spoke about the fact that country music radio rarely plays songs by powerful women. She explained that a number of current hits are men singing about beer, back roads, and dirt, and she is so right! It was refreshing to hear her sing songs I thoroughly enjoy listening to and singing. My voice may struggle today after belting out the words to almost every song she performed. Overall, I would definitely see this show again. Kudos to the PAC staff for bringing Evans to the valley. I know the nearly sold-out audience enjoyed it!
