Veterinarian, marathoner lived for racing - Tampabay.com

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Dr. Randall, who lived out her dreams of treating animals for a living and competing in marathon races, including 25 Boston Marathons and an Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii, died May 23 of breast cancer. She was 62. Dr. Randall stood 5-foot-5 and walked with assurance around 1,000-pound animals that could be unpredictable. At Tampa Bay Downs, she knew the horses and could communicate with them through touch and tone of voice. She sounded out jockeys and trainers for their opinions. "Part of her ability was that she was a runner, too," said Bob Paterno, a trainer at Tampa Bay Downs and her longtime companion. "She could tell the difference between a dangerous thing or if they are just a little stiff and sore. That's the difference between her and most people." The job required people skills, too. "You've got to look (owners) in the face and tell them their horse can't run," said Paterno, 62. "They respected her opinion." She embraced running with an equal zeal. Dr. Randall ran her first marathon in the 1980s. Soon she had qualified for the Boston Marathon and an irreversible passion was activated. "Her ob...

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

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
January 2007, when Jerry Sr. figured prominently in a segment of “The 50 Greatest Moments at Madison Square Garden.” In February, I wrote about Kevin’s “Dream Hawaiian Wedding” to Pearl River’s Eileen Bellew, whose FDNY firefighter husband John died in 2005 trying to escape a fire in the Bronx. No one I know deserves happiness more. They are just a handful of the hundreds – perhaps thousands – of individuals I’ve met and written about in nearly 40 years in journalism, which ends, at least for now, with my retirement today. I once got a late-afternoon call from Gov. George Pataki, responding to an editorial I wrote about two vetoes impacting Rockland and twice 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 ph...

Bill McEwen: Beneath obits lie tales of positive effects on Valley life - Fresno Bee

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
Institute for cancer research. Bob Robinson, 85, was a real cowboy born in Academy and raised in Shaver Lake. World War II took him to the Pacific and duty as a Navy gunner. He put on rodeos in Hawaii, moved to San Diego and then returned home to be the cow boss of Giffen Ranch and participate in cutting horse shows. Dr. Brenton Smith, born in Tonasket, Wash., was 39 years old when he moved to Riverdale after early interests in electrical and nuclear engineering had given way to medicine. Dr. Smith, 67, had a passion for serving patients in the Valley's rural areas and for teaching future family practitioners. And there is Pete Peters, who died Tuesday. Mr. Peters, 94, and his late brother Leon made it big in the Valley and gave back generously. It was Leon who believed the end of Prohibition would be a boon to Valley Foundry because wineries were in need of new and repaired equipment. It was Pete, a self-taught engineer, who later drew up the plans for a circular stainless steel tank that ushered in a new era of winemaking. The Peters brothers formed closed relationships with the Gallo, Mondavi and Wente families, among many, with Pete often spending long hours on site to make sure new equipment worked as advertised. Just as Prohibition's repeal provided opportunity, World War II presented a tall hurdle. Pete served six years in the military, including stints in India and Myanmar -- known then as Burma -- helping build airplane hangars. Leon kept the company afloat and contributed to the war effort by fulfilling military contracts. It's impossible to...

Lucile Hunt Proctor - St. George Daily Spectrum

Wed, Feb 29, 2012
Being in St. George put her near her three sisters with whom she spent many happy hours - going to lunch, playing games, and taking outings to such places as Fredonia, Barkley, Blanding and Hawaii. She and the sisters often played Rook with their brother Dale in a Hurricane care center. Lucile was an exceptional seamstress and knitter, and was, in fact, exceptionally capable of doing anything she set her mind to - woodworking, upholstering, sheet-rocking, cooking, researching. She freely shared her talents with her family and friends. She adored her grandchildren, and found countless ways to bless their lives - $2 bills, commemorative quarters, flash lights, sleeping bags, walkie-talkies, monogrammed towels etc, etc. In 2009 she was thrilled to take the entire family on a Cruise of the Hawaiian Islands. Lucile is survived by her three daughters, Patrice and Lee Hardin, Wimberley Texas, Roshell and Ryan Brinkerhoff, St. George, UT, Stacia and Derek Dennis, Boise ID, grandchildren, Brantley, Cameron, Kade, Shelby, Kyler, Shelsey, Keaton, Shaylea, Hunter, Hayden and Abbie.

HORSE'S MOUTH: Natto vs. Cheese - The Rafu Shimpo

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
So, why am I even mentioning this? Well, I was reading in a Honolulu newspaper that a young Japanese couple who were married in Tokyo flew to Hawaii for their honeymoon and while there, rented a motorcycle to get around the island. Driving on the right side of the street must have confused them as it did me when I had to learn how to drive on the left side in Tokyo. They got into a collision and the bride lost her life. What a tragedy. I wondered when reading about their accident why they rented a motorcycle instead of a car. I know If I rode a motorcycle instead of a car in Japan, I wouldn’t be here today writing about the Japanese couple. And, by the way, they were not wearing helmets. — Speaking of Japanese tourists visiting the U.S., foreign tourism in Japan has picked up. After the earthquake and tsunami last year, tourism had dropped steadily, but has now been picking up with over one million visitors since the quake. The one foreign group that is still dropping is the one from Korea. However, the increase of Chinese tourists has filled the gap left by the drop in Korean visitors. I haven’t seen stats on the number of U.S. tourists visiting Japan since the quake. — Well, here we go again. I went to fill up at the Shell station at 190th and Normandie. I was taken back by the price — $4.08 per gallon. It was only last week when, at the same station, I paid $3.76. Well, maybe we “kotonks” shouldn’t complain. The price of a gallon of gas in Honolulu this week was $4.25 and is expected to go up another nickel next week. Of course, as I often mention when talking about gas prices in the Islands, since they do live on an island, they don’t have to rack up too many miles to get anywhere. Heck, in one round trip from Gardena to the Rafu office, I burn up more gas than my relatives do in ten days. And one round trip from Gardena to Las Vegas covers more miles than my relatives on Maui drive in nearly five months. Enuff said. — I wonder how much traffic in Los Angeles would be reduced if the city passed a law similar to the one that was recently enforced in Dallas, Texas. Under the new law in Dallas, if a driver is pulled over by law enforcement and the driver is unable to show proof of insurance, the car is towed. To retrieve the car after being impounded, the owner must show proof of insurance. This makes it easy for the city to remove uninsured cars. Shortly after the “no insurance” ordinance, the Dallas impound lot began to fill up and was completely filled after only nine days. The drive must not only provide proof of insurance to have the car released, but has to pay for the cost of the tow, a $350 fine and $20 for every day the car is kept in the lot. Accident rates are going down and Dallas’ solution gets drivers off the road without making them show proof of nationality. Wonder how the ACLU and the Justice Department will get around the new ordinance. — Being named on the list of “Top 50” doesn’t seem like much. However, when the number of hospitals in the United States is considered, being on such a list is a lot more meaningful. The Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance was recently name...
