Bob Baird's final salute to loyal readers - The Journal News |

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Sen. Charles Schumer reacted to my columns about a deadly spot on railroad tracks on the edge of Spring Valley, successfully pressing NJ Transit for safety improvements. (Page 2 of 4) I’ve brushed up against the rich, powerful, famous and infamous. Tracy and I once got to share a quiet half-hour conversation with Helen Hayes and there was a time I used to get calls from convicted killer Belton Brims from prison in New Jersey. Longtime ties The Houstons weren’t the only family to resurface in my life decades after our first contact. I was working the desk on Sept. 15, 1979, producing the next day’s Sunday edition, when we learned Nyack toddler Joel Sonnenberg had been burned over 90 percent of his body when his family’s car was rammed by a truck at a New Hampshire toll booth. The driver was arrested but skipped out on his bail and disappeared. Joel survived, but suffered disfiguring burns that required scores of surgical procedures. When Janet Sonnenberg wrote a book about her son’s ordeal, a column I had written about photos of the crash and new ones of one of Joel’s birthday parties, graced the book jacket. Then, in 2004, Janet called me out of the blue. The fugitive trucker had been caught. A few days later I was in a New Hampshire courtroom when he saw Joel Sonnenberg for the first time. Joel played high school soccer, was a student leader in college and has toured with the Rev. Billy Graham. I’ve known Lois Bohovesky since she founded the Hudson Vagabond Puppets, which still charm children here and across the country more than 30 years later. On the morning of Oct. 29, 1980, we learned first that her daughter Paula was missing and later that she had been found murdered blocks from her home. I’ve been writing about Lois, Paula and her brother Peter ever since and about the effort to keep Paula’s convicted killers behind bars. After more than 25 years as an editor, it was telling a love story about a month into my tenure as a columnist in 1999 that made me realize how much I love to write. We noticed side-by-side obituaries for George and Clara Lawrence, who were classmates at the old Liberty Street School and Nyack High School. When they graduated, she went to nursing school and he went to war and was wounded several times on the Normandy beaches. They were hardly ever apart in 54 years of marriage in New City and Florida. But with a great-granddaughter on the way, they tried to move back, cl...

Greenville woman's business focuses on photography - Greenville News

Tue, Mar 6, 2012
Once Joens gets a digital photo from a customer, he studies it, decides how he will crop it and what needs to be done to improve the final artwork. He does the work through Photoshop, adding brush strokes. If a cusotmer wants brown grass to be green, Joens can do that. He can replace a parking lot with a meadow full of flowers. He then blends his work with the existing photograph. “We brought professional fine arts photographers in early,” Tetsch said. But “we knew we weren’t going to stock a lot of work” in the store. Instead, she has books of photographers’ work as well as digital images of their work to show to businesses, churches, hospitals, architects, restaurants and interior designers. “I represent all these photgraphers in canvas,” she said. “I basically become an art source for interior designers. If we can get people to look, they will choose photography.” ...

Junior Showmanship program enhances boy's bond with his dog - Greenville News

Fri, Feb 17, 2012
Becker Reep’s best friend, Stella, outweighs him by a good 50 pounds. She’s a bit high maintenance, demanding daily walks and regular brushing of her silky black hair. And every now and then, a spontaneous burst of affection from Stella will leave Becker a little worse for wear. But that’s OK, because Becker and Stella have the kind of friendship that you only find between a kid and his beloved dog. Stella is a 3-year-old Newfoundland, and Becker is her 12-year-old owner, handler and best buddy. As part of the American Kennel Cl...

Learning from the lessons of Havel and Kim -

Fri, Jan 20, 2012
Havel dedicated himself in mind and body to freedom. Kim was the personification of totalitarian oppression. When many obituaries brush over a life's work and highlight the details of a death, it is valuable to show how important one person's actions can be to change the world, whether for good or bad. Havel was born in 1936 and Kim in 1941, and they both were indoctrinated in communist ideology at a young age. The totalitarian system burrowed itself into every element of their societies, attempting to eviscerate personal freedom and subvert belief in the essential human dignity granted by God and not the state. Schools instructed students to treat Communist Party leaders as living deities, and the state probed into every aspect of citizens' live...

Former HP boss dies - Adelaide Now

Wed, Dec 7, 2011
She built a phenomenal team at Barclays Global Investors," recalled Andrea Redmond, a recruiter and longtime Dunn acquaintance. "She never lost her cool." After brushes with breast cancer and melanoma, Ms. Dunn was diagnosed with Stage IV ovarian cancer in January 2004. Intense chemotherapy, which lasted through August 2005, appeared to have beaten back the disease, but she later had surgery to remove cancer that had spread to her liver. Besides her husband, a former CEO of Wells Fargo Investment Advisers, Ms Dunn is survived by two daughters, 10 grandchildren, a brother and a sister.

Stax star J. Blackfoot dies

Sun, Dec 4, 2011
Bluff City when he was 2 years old and he earned his nickname during his childhood days, when he would walk the Memphis sidewalks barefoot. Mr. Blackfoot's musical career came after several brushes with the law. By age 18 he was serving time at the Tennessee State Penitentiary in Nashville for car theft. It was there that he happened to share a cell with Johnny Bragg, the founder of the Prisonaires, a '50s-era singing group that scored a behind-the-walls hit for Sun Records. The meeting with Bragg pushed Mr. Blackfoot toward a musical career. He recorded an early single under his own name, John Colbert, but found his real launching pad at Stax Records. Mr. Blackfoot gained entry into the Stax fold after he auditioned for songwriter/producer Porter in the late '60s. "Someone told me he could sing, and he was at this place across the street from the (Stax) studio and I went over to take a listen to him, and I got him to sing along with the jukebox, to an Otis Redding song," said Porter. Porter and his songwriti... (The Commercial Appeal)

The sacrificial lambs - Ottawa Citizen

Sun, Nov 20, 2011
Matthew) that those who corrupt children would be better off drowned in the sea, millstones around their necks? They must, if they see child sexual exploitation as a lesser evil, to be brushed off with a glib "No, it's not nice, but it happens." Or "Seriously, it's not the end of the world." Or "Nice payout, though, huh?" Which is stunning, given the mountains of accumulated evidence, the tragic stats, reports, stories and obituaries that testify to the destruction of countless - well, sacrificial lambs, apparently. When a priest, revered and representing The Good, sexually abuses a child (or adolescent, a mixed-up and stillevolving kid in an adult body), he creates enduring disillusionment, loss of faith, mistrust of authority, self-doubt, psychological and sexual confusion and, of course, trauma. He contributes to the creation of an adult who is often angry, unshakably vulnerable, incapable of trusting relationships and prone to whatever dulls the pain, whether booze, drugs or suicide. Multiply all that by all the victims. Then add the effects on all their families, friends and larger communities. And the institution's self-preservation remains the greater good? There are not millstones enough to go around. Janice Kennedy writes here Saturdays. Email 4janicekennedy@gmail. com © Copyright (c) The Ottawa Citizen ...

Pat Passlof, Abstract Expressionist Painter, Dies at 83

Wed, Nov 16, 2011
Ms. Passlof’s canvases are distinguished by the primacy of the brushstroke: they were sometimes so thickly worked in oils that reviewers commended their smell as well as their visual aspects. This deliberate, dense layering of paint makes it hard for the viewer to tell what is figure and what is ground, and the constant, jockeying interplay between the two gives Ms. Passlof’s work much of its dynamism. She was also known as a master colorist. In some paintings her palette centers on muted, desaturated earth tones; in others it exploits saturated colors from deep night blues to vibrant oranges. To a degree, Ms. Passlof cleaved to the pure geometry the Abstract Expressionists adored. In “Eighth House,” a recent series, each painting depends crucially on sets of colored bars, organized in alternating vertical and horizontal bands like the blocks of a quilt. But her geometry is almost always fluid and off kilter — lines disappear, reappear and go quietly askew — which lends her work a sense of buoyancy. Patricia Passloff was born in Brunswick , Ga., on Aug. 5, 1928. She parted company with the final “f” of her surname early in her career, after she finished a painting only to discover she had left insufficient room for a full signature, her sister and only immediate survivor, Aileen Passloff, said in an interview on Tuesday. She studied with de Kooning at Black Mountain Colleg... (New York Times)

Sat, Nov 12, 2011
On this Veterans Day, we should pause to remember and thank all of them. We should also thank Kevin Thomas Marrinan of Eldred for keeping their memories alive — even though he brushes off the thanks, this veteran who brushes the litter off those graves.
