Richelle Antczak McCuen

Independent Consultant

After an exciting, challenging and very eventful career at WCBE, I have chosen to step-down from my position as full-time membership director. I will continue to support the station as an independent consultant.

I have enjoyed my 13+ years at WCBE and appreciate having had the opportunity to help facilitate over $6 million dollars in donations from listeners.  I will miss my colleagues, our members, volunteers and the station overall.

Dr. Seuss is quoted as saying, "Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." That's exactly how I feel right now. Thank you for all the smiles over the years - the many, many smiles!

Membership related questions can be directed to the WCBE Membership department at or by phone at 614-365-5555. As an independent consultant to the station, I can still be reached at

In my recent travels I've spoken with portfolio managers, analysts, and researchers from a wide variety of disciplines. The consensus of opinion is that we will continue to face market volatility as we move forward. Active portfolio management emphasizes diversification, focus, and a long-term perspective. ~ Joseph Chornyak, Sr.

Julie Ellis, Huntington resident, has been to All Good the last five years and says that the festival is more than just music it is a community too.

"Dad wanted to make Legos out of wood for me, but he only made two pieces."

I lived in a cooperative in the mid-seventies -? it was not pretty: dirty dishes and not-so-free love were the ties that died daily. Nobody would respect a schedule for cleaning, and no one would admit that the idea of faithful mates was a good thing. I suspect Sir Thomas More and Nathaniel Hawthorne found this out as well in "Utopia" and "Brooke Farm." Maybe not the dishes, but for sure the free love.

Helena Bonham Carter on the loose to bilk dentists of their drugs is the best fear generator of the film.

Maybe a touch of laughing gas would have helped me understand if "Novocaine" is supposed to be a black comedy, film noir, or just a mouthful of decay. The last item is where I lean -? I longed for the "Marathon Man"?s clean horror, not this wimpy plot with turns barely qualifying for twists.
