Local author Lois Van Buren shares some secrets of her past on the eve of the anniversary of the Kent State Massacre


On May 4th, 1970, Ohio National Guard troops opened fire on unarmed Kent State students protesting the war in Vietnam, killing 4 students and wounding 9 others. Local author Lois Van Buren was there. Having spent the last 45 years in Santa Cruz, raising a family, running a business, and working as an educator, Lois reflects on how that experience affected her life, about some of the hard lessons, great good fortune, and iconic milestones of the 60s counterculture, and how nature came to the rescue.
