RC Owens dies at 77; 49ers 'alley oop' receiver - Los Angeles Times

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
The term "alley oop" is now used more frequently in basketball, typically referring to a set-up for a dunk in which a player lobs the ball to a teammate near the rim. Raleigh Climon Owens was born Nov. 12, 1934, in Shreveport, La. His parents moved to Santa Monica two years later. He attended College of Idaho on a football and basketball scholarship, and while there talked his roommate, future Lakers great Elgin Baylor, out of playing football. Even though he was selected in the 14th round of the 1956 NFL draft, Owens made an immediate splash. He was the 49ers' rookie of the year, with 27 catches for 395 yards and five touchdowns — big numbers in an era of running the football. Owens played eight seasons in the NFL, his first five with the 49ers (1957-61), followed by two with the Baltimore Colts (1962-63) and one with the New York Giants (1964). He was the first NFL receiver to wear gloves, a holdover from those bitter-cold games in Idaho. Owens had an effect on the game that extended beyond the field. Unhappy with a contract that paid him $10,500 for the 1960 season, he played out his option year in 1961 instead of signing a new deal with the 49ers. He then became a free agent, and the first to play out his option year then sign with another team, the Colts. So jarring was that move that 49ers owner Vic Morabito never again spoke to Colts owner Carroll Rosenbloom. A year later, NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle devised the "Rozelle Rule," which required the signing team (in Owens' case, the Colts) to compensate the player's original team for the loss — usually in the form of money or draft picks. No stranger to heartache, Owens was involved in a tragic car accident in June 1963 as he was driving to Colts training camp in Colorado. A tornado swept his car off the road, and his 3-year-old daughter, Pam, was killed. His 1-month-old son, Darren, sustained a fractured skull, which the family believed led to his death at age 7. After his playing career, Owens worked in public relations for J.C. Penney Co. and later in a California office for the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. He returned to sports to work in marketing for the Oakland Stompers soccer team. In 1979, Bill Walsh hired him to organize 49ers training camp, and Owens was reunited with the franchise that gave ...

Disaster relief organization moving HQ to Greer - Greenville News

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
Wiseman said. The organization, which was started in 2009, has been to disasters in Atlanta, Raleigh-Durham, Wilmington, Nashville, Jolpin, Missouri, and other areas. When they began looking for a place to relocate to, Greenville popped up in Forbes magazine as one of the top places to relocate a business, Wiseman said. The Upstate, he said, is very business friendly and the improvements made by the city of the Greenville have made the downtown an attractive area. Also, this particular part of South Carolina and the Southeast is among the least likely to have a major disaster, Wiseman said. “The last thing you want as a a disaster relief company is to put your headquarters in harm’s way, so it was a financial logistical and a safety decision to relocate here to Greenville,” he said.

Enjoying a great spring break - Jacksonville Daily News

Thu, Mar 22, 2012
We settled for calls of “welcome home.” It was nice to see that our service members receive a heroes welcome almost as well as Onslow County. On the plane from Raleigh, I sat on the row with a young military wife and baby who had been to Ft. Bragg to visit her husband. Southwest has open seating and I noticed that most people moved on to the back of the plane. It was their loss. The lady that sat between us held the baby for a few minutes for mom to get his dinner from her bag. I showed him the fish in the magazine to entertain him. The baby was so sweet and well behaved. He ate his dinner and went to sleep. Spring break There was a downpour on Saturday but then the weather cleared and it has been mostly sunny. I have enjoyed wearing shorts and flip flops. There are lots of young, strong bodies here for spring break having a great time. The locals avoid Front Beach Road during this time. On Tuesday, Panama City Beach broke the Guinness world record for the largest bikini parade with 450 women walking a mile in their bikinis for the historic cause. I thought it was a little cool for bikinis but these were brave, committed women. The women snatched the title from Surfers Paradise Beach in Australia that only had 357 women in bikinis, according to...

'Who Do You Think You Are?' 'Reba McEntire' on NBC Recap - Gather.com

Tue, Mar 6, 2012
Brassfield to Brasfield and the historian found her history back to the 1700s. She then went to North Carolina to find George Brasfield, her four-times great-grandfather, before Raleigh was even the capital. George Brasfield owned a bar, so they checked the tax records and found he owned 1,615 acres and had 10 slaves that shocked Reba. She went 40 miles north and checked records of the slaves and another historian. They have computerized many records and written archives. The bills of sale show that George Brasfield was a slave trader. He sold a Negro girl of fourteen months of age and several other children. Reba was heartbroken to know that this was done when children were taken away from their parents; never to see them again. Going back to her six-times great-grandfather was also George Brasfield in 1721 bought land for a large amount of tobacco, but at nine years old, he was an indentured servant to a rich man who paid for his trip to Virginia. Back then indentured servants, mostly children had to work until they were 21 and then received their independence. The work was very hard and more than half never lived to 21 to reach their independence. He left England with eleven years of indenture to...
