Earl Scruggs dead at 88 - Newsday

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Tut Taylor, a friend of the Scruggs family who heard that first performance on the radio in his Georgia home, called it an unbelievably raucous moment "a lot like some of the rock 'n' roll things they had, you know. But this was a new sound. It was a pretty sound and a welcome sound." Scruggs' use of three fingers — in place of the limited clawhammer style once prevalent — elevated the banjo from a part of the rhythm section — or a even a comedian's prop — to a lead instrument that was as versatile as the guitar and far more flashy. Country great Porter Wagoner probably summed up Scruggs' importance best of all: "I always felt like Earl was to the five-string banjo what Babe Ruth was to baseball. He is the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be." His string-bending and lead runs became known worldwide as "the Scruggs picking style" and the versatility it allowed has helped popularize the banjo beyond the traditional bluegrass and country forms. Today the banjo can be found in almost any genre, largely due to the way he freed its players to experiment and find new space. That was exactly what Ralph Stanley had in mind when he first heard Scruggs lay it down. A legendary banjo player in his own right, Stanley said in a 2011 interview that he was inspired by Scruggs when he first heard him over the radio after returning home from military service in Germany. "I wasn't doing any playing," Stanley said. "When I got discharged I began listening to Bill and Earl was with him. I already had a banjo at that time, but of course I wanted to do the three-finger roll. I knew Earl was the best, but I didn't want to sound like him. I wanted to do that style, but I wanted to sound the way I felt and that's what I tried to do." Dave Rawlings, a Nashville singer-songwriter and producer, says Scruggs remains every bit as influential and fresh seven decades later. He said it's impossible to imagine nearly every guitar player mimicking Jimi Hendrix, but with Scruggs and the banjo, that's the reality. "The breadth and clarity of the instrument was increased so much," he said. "He invented a style that now probably 75 percent of the people that play the banjo in the world play Scruggs-style banjo. And that's a staggering thing to do, to play an instrument and change what everyone is doing." News of Scruggs' passing quickly spread around the music world and over Twitter. Bentley and bluegrassers like Sam Bush and Jon Randall Stewart celebrated him at the Tin Pan South gathering of songwriters in Nashville and Eddie Stubbs dedicated the night to him on WSM, the home of the Grand Ole Opry. On the Internet, actor and accomplished banjo player Steve Martin called Scruggs, with whom he collaborated in 2001 on "Earl Scruggs and Friends," ''the most important banjo player who ever lived." Hank Williams Jr. sent prayers to the Scruggs family and Charlie Daniels tweeted, ...

Mauldin's Younginer makes Drive debut - Greenville News

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
In reality, that’s what I’ll be called on to do more often than not.” Younginer made his debut to start the top of the second. He retired the first batter, former Georgia star Zach Cone, on one pitch with a pop out to second baseman Jose Garcia. “I’m very proud of the way it went,” Younginer said. “I was a little nervous going into it with it being in the hometown and all of the family and friends being there. I feel like I did a good job of pounding the zone and throwing strikes.” The former Mauldin High School star threw three innings. He gave up two hits, one run, and a walk and struck out three. The first three batters of the fourth reached, but he got three straight outs, the last two by strikeouts, to allow just the one run. Drive manager Carols Febles also was pleased with Younginer’s work. “He was great. He came in throwing strikes and pounding the zone with all of his pitches. His third inning started out a little bad, but he made pitches to get out of it.” Febles said they cut Younginer’s outing short because of elbow and forearm tightness. He said Younginer will be able to go on his next scheduled start. Younginer said he was conscious of his...

The Sad End of the Gingrich Campaign - New Republic

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Southern candidate, but finished a close second behind Rick Santorum in Mississippi and Alabama. Then Newt tried to repeat in Louisiana his one-state-at-a-time strategy that had worked so well in Georgia. Not only did Newt win just 16 percent of the vote, but his wipeout was consistent across all demographic and ideological categories, according to the Louisiana exit polls. What this means is that (unlike Romney with upper-income Republicans and Santorum with evangelicals) there is no identifiable Gingrich constituency in the GOP. With more than 130 delegates (although all GOP delegate calculations are murky), Gingrich would, in theory, have a role at a contested Republican Convention. Morley Winograd, an architect of the Democratic Party’s arcane delegate rules and a veteran of the contested Kennedy vs. Carter 1980 Convention, suggested in an insightful column in Politico that Santorum and Gingrich should join forces in a last-ditch stop-Romney coalition. With almost all future GOP primaries winner-take-all by congressional district, Winograd theorized that the anti-Mitt candidates could divvy up the districts based on their comparative strength against Romney. There’s only one problem: It is hard to identify a spot on the remaining primary map where Gingrich would be a stronger challenger than Santorum.  So it ends for Gingrich without even a whimper. He will go through the motions of campaigning while visiting zoos (I suspect the Milwaukee County Zoo will merit a pre-primary visit) and dining in plush hotel restaurants with Callista. When the primaries are finally over, Gingrich may even be given a brief prime-time slot at the Tampa Convention if he effusively endorses the nominee and pledges not to gush about beach volleyball as he did at the 1996 GOP Convention. But the dream that has defined Newt Gingrich’s life for more than a half century ended Saturday without fanfare in the Louisiana bayous. It has been a long journey from Verdun to being done.  Walter Shapiro is a special correspondent for The New Republic. He also writes the “Character Sketch” column for Yahoo News.

Ulu Grosbard, Broadway and Film Director, Dies at 83

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
Mr. Hoffman again) who is unable to stay on the straight and narrow; “Falling in Love” (1984), a tale of midlife romance that stared Mr. De Niro and Meryl Streep; “Georgia” (1995), a story of two sisters with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Mare Winningham; and “The Deep End of the Ocean” (1999), with Michelle Pfeiffer and Treat Williams, about the life of a family after the kidnapping of the youngest son. Mr. Grosbard, who lived for many years in Greenwich Village, was born on Jan. 9, 1929, in Antwerp, Belgium, where his parents, Morris and Rose, ran a haberdashery and named their second son Israel. (Ulu was a childhood nickname that stuck, given to him by his older brother, Jack.) The family fled the Nazis and waited out the war in Havana, where young Ulu worked as a diamond cutter. When the family was finally allowed into the United States, he earned a B.A. and an M.A. in English from the University of Chicago and went on to Yale Drama School before serving in the Army in the mid-1950s. His apprentice work as a director was on some high-profile films, assisting Robert Rossen on “The Hustler,” Elia Kazan on “Splendor in the Grass” and Arthur Penn on “The Miracle Worker.” He earned his first New York stage directing credit in 1962 with an Off Broadway play by William Snyder, “The Days and Nights of Beebee Fenstermaker,” about a young woman struggling with a new life in the city, which starred Ms. Gregorio, his only immediate survivor, and featured Mr. Duvall. “He was very cautious about working,” Mr. Duvall said, adding that he had asked Mr. Grosbard to direct several projects, including the film “Tender Mercies” and the television movie “Stalin,” and was turned down. “I wanted to work more with him. Whatever he brought to me, I did.” ... (New York Times)

DA to review role of victim's widow in Ga. killing - Seattle Post Intelligencer

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
Rusty," attorney Jennifer Little said. She would not comment on a possible investigation of her client. Neuman's attorneys, meanwhile, are planning to appeal. Neuman, a Georgia Tech graduate and father of three, was a high-ranking manager at General Electric, where he supervised Andrea Sneiderman. He was arrested about six weeks after the Nov. 18, 2010 killing. She testified she didn't discover her husband had been shot until she reached the hospital about an hour after the shooting, but her father-in-law and a close friend both said she called to deliver the bad news only minutes after he was shot. She also faced aggressive questions over the timing of her decision to tell police about her suspicions of Neuman. She told a close friend in December 2010 that she believed Neuman could have killed her husband, but didn't tell detectives for another week. Andrea Sneiderman and Neuman began working together when she was hired in early 2010. Records show they exchanged 1,500 phone calls and text messages in the months leading up to the killing, including three phone calls on the eve of her husband's death and several more calls on the way to the hospital. On work trips, they would share long dinners and intimate moments, including sex, according to attorneys. Andrea Sneiderman said she acknowledged she made mistakes by holding hands with Neuman, dancing with him at a bar and having long dinners. But she said she never had an affair with him. As for why she didn't tell police early on about Neuman's feelings for her, she said the notion that he killed her husband seemed unfathomable. "Seems kind of ridiculous, right?" she said. "The theory that my boss could kill my husband, it seemed kind of stupid at the time." During Neuman's sentencing, prosecutors and Sneiderman's brother urged the judge to give him the maximum punishment of life without parole. "His obituary is already written...

"The theory that my boss could kill my husband, it seemed kind of stupid at the time." During Neuman's sentencing, prosecutors and Sneiderman's brother urged the judge to give him the maximum punishment of life without parole. "His obituary is already written. It reads, 'Hemy Neuman, convicted murderer. Period,'" said Steve Sneiderman said. DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Gregory Adams had the option of life in prison with the possibility of parole after 30 years, but he called the killing a "planned execution" with no justification. The sentence means that Neuman will receive mental treatment while serving the rest of his life behind bars. Neuman told the judge the shooting was a terrible tragedy. "I am so, so, so sorry. I can't say it enough ... I am sorry from the deepest part of my heart, your honor," Neuman said. His attorneys said he couldn't tell the difference between right and wrong when he killed Sneiderman, and urged the jury to find him not guilty by reason of insanity. If the jury had reached that verdict, Neuman would have become a ward of the state mental health department and a judge would have later decided when, if ever, he could be released. Neuman told mental health examiners he was visited by a demon whose voice sounded like Barry White and an angel who looked like Olivia Newton-John. The angel ordered him to fatally shoot Sneiderman, Neuman said in one interview.

Santorum, Romney in tight duel for Ohio - Greenville News

Tue, Mar 6, 2012
Romney, 15 percent for Newt Gingrich and 9 percent for Ron Paul. Gingrich had a victory in his column - his first win in more than six weeks. He triumphed at home in Georgia, but had to share the delegates. Paul pinned his hopes on Idaho and Alaska as he scratched for his first victory of the campaign season. Whatever the outcome in Ohio, Romney was on track to pad his lead in the hunt for delegates to the Republican National Convention. Not surprisingly, he focused on the delegate chase. “This is a process of gathering enough delegates to become the nominee, and I think we’re on track to have that happen,” he told reporters as he arrived home in Massachusetts to vote in the primary. Later, he told supporters, “I’m going to get this nomination.” Yet Santorum’s multiple victories, coupled with Gingrich’s win, provided fresh evidence that Romney’s conservative rivals retain the ability to outpoll him in certain parts of the country despite his huge organizational and financial advantages. Santorum waited until Oklahoma and Tennessee fell into his column before speaking to cheering supporters in Ohio. “We’re going to win a few. We’re going to lose a few. But as it looks ...
