    <ong>10-hour music fest to raise money for memorial scholarship

    On May 17, there will be a “Concert For Corey” at Faribault Senior High School to raise money to establish an arts scholarship at the schoo in the name of Corey Creger, who died in a plane crash in Faribault last November.l.

    Creger, a 2007 Faribault graduate and a first-year University of Wisconsin-Stout student at the time of her death, had a passion for the arts and music. Her friends had a notion of an idea while mourning her death last fall. Since that tragic Thanksgiving weekend, several top-notch regional bands have been gathered for the concert along with thousands of dollars worth of merchandise for a silent auction held during the all-day event.

    The concert goes from 1 p.m. Saturday to 10 p.m. and features top up-and-coming bands from the Twin Cities and Faribault areas as well as other regional places. They include: Wrestling With Wolves (roots, folk blues), Beaver Creek Blue Grass, Black Magic (rock, blues acoustic), Never So Few (progressive rock), The Quarterly (rock, metal), The Soviet Machines (pop, punk), Bright Light Parade (power pop), and Allyson Road.

    The doors open at Faribault Senior High School at noon May 17. The address is 330 Ninth Ave. SW. A contribution of $5 will be asked for at the door, $3 for students and those younger.

    Miley Cyrus changes her name

    Thursday morning, a Los Angeles judge officially signed off on Disney star Miley Cyrus’s name change. Cyrus’s real name – Destiny Hope Cyrus – is no more, as Miley Ray Cyrus is official. As a justification for the request, Miley’s parents Billy Ray and Leticia wrote that “Destiny Hope Cyrus has been commonly known as Miley Cyrus since she was a young child. The change of the name is requested to make her commonly used name the same as her legal name.”
