The stark white house with crisp lines, first occupied by a schoolteacher and an artist, joined a body of work that some have mentioned in the same breath as Frank Lloyd Wright – whom Neutra briefly worked under and admired so much that he named a son after the renowned architect. “Their beauty, like that of any sea shell, is more than skin-deep – practical, not pretentious,” Time magazine wrote about Neutra’s designs in 1949, when he graced the cover.

Published 8:00 am CST, Saturday, December 15, 2018 FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) — As she looks off the stage at an audience of more than 6,000 people, Sophie Silnicki keeps her mind focused on the moves. Silnicki has been dancing since she was just 18 months old. She remembers her training in her mother's Fairmont dance studio, Movements in Dance, as she takes the stage as a Rockette at Radio City Music Hall.

After a period of grueling auditions beginning in April where the dancer's skills were put to the test, Silnicki earned her spot on the Rockettes this summer.
