A few regional artist friends and I got together in 2012 to create something ‘ignorant’ together— a website loaded with stories about one special place on earth called Rockford, Illinois.  This social experiment was successful on a local level with regards to people loving what we were doing, or avoiding it like the plague by cursing our names every chance they got. We created a reaction, and that is what artists do.

Either way, the public reaction was a punchline for our little collective’s final goal:  A 256 page book was published in late 2014, “Believe,” under the collaborative name of RKFDnews. It’s available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and elsewhere.

Sarah Wolf‘s (Journalist) editors at the Rockford Register Star, the region’s largest newspaper, ignored publishing some major facts regarding the existence of the book itself within a recent press article that ran (Jan. 2017). Despite the Editors’ slights, Sarah did a great job conveying our collective’s intents vs. what the national trend for fake news has become since the 2016 Presidential Election results spawned a con of a marketing man to be rewarded the most important job in the world.  How sad we’ve become as a nation, and within our own communities, to grant our beliefs to the worst that which humanity has to offer.
