Furman grad's coast-to-coast walk supports Wounded Warrior Project - Greenville News

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
April 23 and headed west. By averaging 20 miles a day, he had walked 1,800 miles by late September, reaching Omaha, Neb. Rather than attempt a dangerous winter walk through the snow-swept, frozen Rocky Mountains, McCandless put his unusual mission on hold and returned to Greenville. Next week, he’ll fly to Omaha, Neb., to restart from the spot where he left off last fall; he’s hoping to reach San Francisco Bay — 2,000 miles to the west — by early October. “Walking out West will be interesting,” says McCandless, whose motive is the same for every mile. It’s the Wounded Warrior Project, which he became familiar with through a Furman University fraternity brother, Ken Dwyer. An Army Special Forces officer who graduated from Furman in 1998, one year after McCandless, Dwyer was wounded in August 2006 in Afghanistan. A rocket-propelled grenade destroyed his left hand and left eye. McCandless called his old fraternity brother last spring, in search of some tips on training for a 3,800-mile walk. “He would know what I needed to do to walk 20 miles a day,” McCandless says. When Dwyer — now back on active duty, stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C. — explained how the Wounded Warrior Project had helped him to recover, McCandless had the charity in mind that he figured would make t...

Dick Kniss, Bassist for Peter, Paul and Mary, Is Dead at 74

Sun, Jan 29, 2012
Mike Taylor. But he joined the band simply because he needed the work. In 1970, Denver had not yet become the clear-voiced crooner of popular, sentimental ballads like “Annie’s Song” and “Rocky Mountain High,” though he had written “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” which Peter, Paul and Mary turned into a No. 1 hit in 1969. Denver asked him to play electric bass, which he did for the only time in his career. “Back then when you flew, the bass was carried in its own seat in the plane, like a child, and John Denver couldn’t afford it,” Diane Kniss recalled. Denver asked Mr. Kniss to set the stand-up instrument aside and play the electric. “Denver said, ‘When we get some money, the first thing we’ll do is bring it back,’ ” she said. “And that’s what he did.” ...

Virginia Culver: A legend leaves the Post - Denver Post (blog)

Wed, Dec 7, 2011
We had lawyers who were members of the press club who were willing to act pro bono.” I heard about Culver almost as soon as I went to work for the Post’s rival, the Rocky Mountain News, in July 1993 covering the night cops beat. That’s because the pope was due in town in less than a month. Culver had scooped the international press and the pope’s own traveling press corps about the Pope John Paul II’s visit to the Mile High City. (BTW, at one time the Post wanted to trade Culver to the Rocky to avoid the problem of her marrying someone in management.) Our paths crossed when we covered the Oklahoma City bombing trials in Denver. We both were assigned to be in Oklahoma City in 2001 when bomber Timothy McVeigh was executed at the U.S. penitentiary in Terre Haute, Ind. I loved it that she called Interstate 25 “the Valley Highway.” Sometime in the last decade, Culver quit covering religion and started writing obituaries. “Albert Turner Jr. was a professional photographer, builder of an intricate miniature circus and a model railroader. In later life, he was Aleta Elysia Turner, cross-dresser,” she wrote for last Sunday’s Post. Last year she wrote the obituary of The Rev. John Kiernan, a Catholic priest who “seldom missed a chance to protest or talk about political and social issues, from military spending to the environment.” “Criticized for talking about political issues in sermons, his response was, ‘You can’t keep politics out of church. We’re called by God to create a just society,’” Culver wrote. As the obituary writer, Culver dealt with the local mortuaries. She howled this week when Horan & McConaty sent her a traditional funeral wreath. The banner read “Good luck in your new location.” At 4:02 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 25, 2011, Virginia Culver collected the last of her belongings and made her way to the elevator. Little did she know that the newsroom would walk with her. When ever anyone asked Culver how long she had worked at the Post, she always replied, “100 years” and laughed. She was smiling Friday when the elevator door closed, 44 years after she first arrived at The Denver Post. Reporter Virginia Culver enjoys a laugh in the elevator of the Denver Post building on her last day with the newspaper. —– lbartels@denverpost.com; follow Lynn on Twitter: @Lynn_Bartels ...
