    Could be as simple as adding the_author() template tag to your index.php file.

    See:
    Template_Tags/the_author

    If you need more help you might want to provide a link...

    Since you're going to be modifying your theme you might want to take a look at these:

    Templates
    Template_Tags
    Template_Tags/the_author

    I didn't test this but in your wp-content/themes/pool/index.php try replacing:

    <small><?php the_time('F j, Y on g:i a'); ?> | In <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?></small>

    with

    <small>By <?php the_author(); ?> | <?php the_time('F j, Y on g:i a'); ?> | In <?php the_category(', ') ?> | <?php comments_popup_link('No Comments', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?></small>
