"The key to recording and playing Live on the acoustic guitar with any microphone is placement.

The mistake a lot of novices make is to have the microphone too close to the guitar’s sound-hole, or too close to the body of the guitar in general. This effect is even more pronounced with a dynamic pencil mic, as they have a tendency to emphasize the bass when getting close to a sound source. This can make your guitar sound muddy and unclear.
Place the microphone about 6 to 12 inches away from the sound-hole of your guitar. Experiment with the distance, but you don’t really want to get any closer than that. A quick tip that I then use is without moving the mic, turn it to diagonally face the guitar’s neck, around about the 12th fret. This can reduce some of the “boominess” you can get with a dynamic microphone, as the sound waves are not hitting the mic full-on from the front from the sound-hole."

"Live Your Dream" Awards

Monday, January 30 at 7 p.m.
Riverton Branch Library Community Room

Honoring “Live Your Dream” award recipients is one of the most fun and rewarding aspects of this annual and ongoing Soroptimist “Live Your Dream” program! Additionally, one of the most consistently reported outcomes from past recipients is an increase in their self-esteem and their impact as role models for their dependents.
It’s time to celebrate, and we want to make sure each woman feels respected and valued in our communities. It is also important for each recipient’s family to see her recognized for her hard work.
Please join us in honoring the 2023 “Live Your Dream” program award recipients at this reception with light refreshments.

CIRCLES USA is a community initiative to assist families with limited resources and empower them to better their circumstances.

This is an added convenience to help anyone out with their ongoing construction/building projects. The Permit Portal is a good point of reference for a lot of our permitting requirements and information. We cannot take payment through this portal at this time, but we do have several payment options, once the permit is approved; please contact our office for further information. If you would prefer obtain your building permits in person, we are happy to assist you during normal business hours.

If you are thinking of adopting please make sure you can accommodate the animal.

Adopting any animal requires commitment and long term care.

If you become unable to care for an animal you have adopted from us, please make sure to call us before you bring in the animal back because we do not always have room to take them back in.

Keep the critters in mind and what’s best for them.

Thank you!

All impounds are held for 5 days and then put up for adoption.
