Restaurant was fate for Correale

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Memphis has lost a noted Italian restaurateur. In March, Sam Bomarito of Pete and Sam's died. Then on Saturday, Bridgette Correale, the friendly and familiar face that greeted patrons of the Brooklyn Bridge restaurant in East Memphis, succumbed after a battle with cancer. She was 72. "She was in charge of marketing. She was also the receptionist. But she was much more than that," said Vincent Correale, her husband of 51 years. "She would meet and... (The Commercial Appeal)

MSO cellist Peter Loran Spurbeck remembered for excellence

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Spurbeck. "So they made sure to move him away from hockey, which he loved to play, but they had to think of his hands." He was, however, a devoted baseball fan from the time his father took him to Brooklyn Dodgers games. "He was a big fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and the Memphis Redbirds," said Sam Spurbeck. And he did the box scores at every game, something he learned from his father. That interest in detail was in every aspect of his life, from baseball to doing the family budget to teaching to performing. "He aimed for perfection," said Janet Edmonds, a violinist and friend of the family. Mr. Spurbeck is survived by his wife and son, sisters Susan Webb and Meg Weston, two grandchildren and several nieces, nephews and cousins. Visitation will be Sunday from 3 to 5 p.m. at Forest Hill Funeral Home, and the service will be Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at Second Presbyterian Church. Graveside service immediately follows the funeral at Forest Hill. (The Commercial Appeal)

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Web designer and a visionary figure in the Internet’s evolution from a predominantly text-based medium to the multimedia platform it is today, died on Wednesday at his home in Brooklyn. He was 51. Hillman Curtis called himself a serial self-reinventor. The cause was colon cancer, his wife, Christina, said. Mr. Curtis was the art director of a San Francisco software company in 1996 when he designed the first Web site formatted f... (New York Times)

Longtime sportscaster Dom Valentino dies at 83 - Newsday

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Dom Valentino had prostate cancer. He died at Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, nine days after a choking incident left him unable to swallow, David Valentino said. Dom Valentino was born in Brooklyn and grew up in Hingham, Mass., outside of Boston. PHOTOS: Recent celebrity deaths OBITUARIES: Read all recent obituaries, and place death notices He was the play-by-play man for the Cincinnati Royals of the NBA. He moved with the team when it became the Kansas City-Omaha Kings in 1972. In 1975, he joined the New York Yankees' radio team, which included Phil Rizzuto. That year he also called games for the New York Nets, wh...

Lead hazards were long ignored - Greenville News

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
In March, New York City officials closed four ball fields in a Brooklyn park after learning from USA TODAY that the area was a former smelter site with elevated levels of lead. “EPA and our state and local partners have overseen thousands of cleanups, through a variety of programs,” said Mathy Stanislaus, an EPA assistant administrator. “Unfortunately, some of the sites USA TODAY identified have not yet been addressed or investigated by EPA. EPA will review USA TODAY’s information to determine what steps can be taken to ensure Americans are not being exposed to dangerous levels of lead.” The EPA says it has worked with states to assess most of the sites on the 2001 list but that record-keeping is “incomplete” for many. Eighteen sites received some kind of cleanup but most weren’t considered dangerous enough to qualify for federal action. (Page 3 of 13) “I am convinced we have addressed the highest-risk sites,” said Elizabeth Southerland, director of assessment and remediation for the EPA’s Superfund program. “Absolutely and positively, we are open to reassessing sites that we now feel, based on your information, need another look.” EPA staff members said additional site reviews are under way, including checks of 48 sites the agency determined were never assessed. And the EPA said it will work with Ohio environmental regulators to re-examine the Cleveland neighborhood near Shefton’s home to see whether a cleanup evaluation there is appropriate. But Ken Shefton and his family aren’t waiting for the government to do a cleanup. His 6-year-old son, Jonathan, was diagnosed this spring with having an elevated level of lead in his body. “That was the last straw,” Shefton said. He’s in the process of selling his home. The family moved to another neighborhood last week. “Somebody needs to take care of this problem, or inform the people in this neighborhood,” he said. Concerns surfaced over a decade ago Most of the nation’s lead factories — some huge manufacturing complexes and others tiny storefront melting shops — had been largely shuttered by the 1970s and 1980s. Often known as smelters, they emitted thousands of pounds of lead and other toxic metal particles into the air as they melted down batteries and other products containing lead. The particles would land on nearby properties, potentially mixing with lead dust from automobile exhaust or paint chips — significant sources, says the government — to create a hazard. Children who play in lead-contaminated soil, sticking dust-covered hands or toys in their mouths, over time can suffer lost intelligence and other irreversible health problems. In April 2001, environmental scientist William Eckel published a research article in the American Journal of Public Health warning about the dangers of old smelting factories. While working on his Ph.D. dissertation, Eckel had identified a historical smelting site unknown to federal and state regulators and wondered how many other sites had been forgotten over time, their buildings demolished or absorbed by other businesses. Eckel used old industry directories, which he cross-referenced with EPA databases, to come up with a list of more than 400 potential lead-smelting sites that appeared to be unknown to federal regulators. (Page 4 of 13) Eckel confirmed that 20 of the sites’ addresses were factories -- and not just business offices -- using Sanborn fire insurance maps, which detail the historical uses of i...

Kentucky Wildcats top NCAA basketball tournament field - Greenville News

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
Duke in the regular-season finale March 3. Michigan State has come a long way, by far the furthest of the No. 1s. The Spartans (27-7) will play in Columbus on Friday against No. 16 seed LIU Brooklyn. “We came from nothing,” MSU senior Draymond Green said on CBS after the Spartans defeated Ohio State 68-64 for the Big Ten tournament title. After last season the Spartans lost two starters to graduation and eventually another, current senior Delvon Roe, to recurring knee problems. Unranked to start the season, MSU opened with back-to-back losses against North Carolina and Duke. (Page 2 of 3) Such tough games are common for MSU under coach Tom Izzo and his “we’ll-play-anyone-any-time-any-place” philosophy. The improvement rooted there. Michigan State’s romp to the title game -- the Spartans blitzed Wisconsin 65-52 in the semifinals and Iowa 92-75 in the quarterfinals -- was even more impressive considering they lost third-leading scorer Branden Dawson to a season-ending knee injury March 4. MSU’s leading scorer Sunday with 21 points, Brandon Wood, is a senior who completed his eligibility at Valparaiso last year and transferred for a shot at the big time. “Just to be a part of the tournament, it’s something I’ve always dreamed of,” Wood said. “It’s just a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” It was Michigan State’s first Big Ten tourney championship since 2000, the year MSU won its second NCAA championship and first under Izzo. “It was just a great feeling to see that No. 1 seed pop up,” said Green, a native of Flint, Mich. “We always see the No. 1 seeds pop up and the people celebrating. So it’s a great feeling to see ourselves pop up as the No. 1 seed and being able to celebrate it and watch it on TV.” Green is hoping for a third trip to the Final Four. He helped MSU advance as a freshman and sophomore. T...

Corrections: March 13 - New York Times

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
Greenwich Village and its political implications misspelled the surname of the president of the Municipal Art Society, who urged the university to focus its expansion on Brooklyn. He is Vin Cipolla, not Cippola. BUSINESS DAY The Media Equation column on Monday, about efforts to set standards for online content aggregation, misstated a point in an Advertising Age column by Simon Dumenco that was widely picked up by other Web sites, and misstated the timing of its publication. Mr. Dumenco’s column contrasted the social-media chatter on a salacious story involving Anthony Weiner, the former congressman, and the introduction of Apple’s iCloud service; it did not contrast it with the death of Steven P. Jobs, the co-founder of Apple. The column was published last June, not July. (Mr. Jobs died in October.) THE ARTS An article on Saturday about the band Fun. included several errors. Its first album, “Aim and Ignite,” was produced by Steven McDonald, not by the band. A lyric from the song “Some Nights” includes...
