“We tried really hard,” said Dana Colorado.  “You know, these dogs are everything to us.”

Colorado and her friend, Tommy Barton, live in a modest home surrounded by trees and dog pens; inside each pen at least one dog bounces and barks.  “It started out with one Otterhound that lived nearby,” said Colorado.  “He would travel over here and got the first dog pregnant; then a lab came by and got another one pregnant – and then it was just totally out of control.”

Magician Wes Iseli is bringing his act to the Fluvanna area on July 30 to benefit Parkinson’s research.  Performances will be at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. at Victory Hall in Scottsville.  Iseli performed just last month at the Fluvanna library; many who saw his show expressed interest in attending the July 30 event.

Iseli, 38, became a professional magician – with a business license – right out of college; but had been fascinated with magic since he was a little boy. “The first trick I ever saw was when a guy pulled a coin out from behind my ear,” he said with a laugh.  “I was hooked after that.”
