In This Case, It's Fun To Hit 30 - Hartford Courant

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
There was a report last week in a Massachusetts newspaper that both UConn associate head coach Chris Dailey and Hartford coach Jen Rizzotti would be on Providence's list to replace Phil Seymore. Dailey said Sunday she is not interested in the job. Home Away From Home Kansas State women's basketball coach Deb Patterson seems resigned to the fact that the Wildcats are perennial 8-9 seeds and have been sent to Connecticut three times in the past four tournaments. "The facts are, we are always in UConn's bracket," she said. "What's exciting to me is we finally put ourselves in position to have the opportunity to advance. We are in Connecticut and playing Connecticut." ...

Clarksville reporter begins journey through her genealogy - Clarksville Leaf Chronicle

Wed, Feb 29, 2012
Cordell Hunt, my great-grandfather, was one of his children. J.R. Hunt may have preached at a church in Hopkinsville, according to my father, and in 1930 he Iola Hunt and six children lived in Providence, Ky. In speaking to genealogists, I’ve learned so much about research and history. I’ve called upon my older uncle, my cousin and genealogy researchers to help me along the way. I have so much I want to do, including talking to my grandfather, Samuel Green in Hopkinsville, my aunt Susie and my only grandmother, Eunice Spencer in Detroit. I know I will learn a lot from the researchers in my family and some things I may not learn. In many families some memories are painful and not spoken about. During my short research I’ve discovered the death of several stillborn babies, other family members who died young in tragic ways and multiple marriages as well as children born out of wedlock. (Page 3 of 3) And although some may not like to talk about those things, it is part of our history and if we don’t know our history it can easily be repeated. I wish there were a lot pictures and I’m sure there are some out there that I simply haven’t discovered. I want to find as many pictures as I can and get copies and document our family in book form. If I ever have children I want to show them, not just tell them, about our family. It will be a “gift,” as Curry calls it. As a journalist, I think it’s my calling to become the family researcher and historian in some ways. It has been fun and it is something I will continue to do. I’ve learned things my father and mother didn’t know and found questions with no answers, which intrigues me even more to find the answers. The project that I thought would take a month or so will take many many years, but I am up for the challenge of researching where I come from. We’ve come a long way and I don’t want to forget the path my ancestors walked, making it easier for me to do what I do every day. I’m sure the Hunts of Montgomery County knew about The Leaf-Chronicle or The Clarksville Leaf Chronicle, as it was called in 1890, but never knew one day one of their descendants would write for a newspaper in which at one time they could not have their name printed.

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

Sun, Feb 26, 2012
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 named one of the top 50 hospitals in the U.S. I guess I am mentioning this because over the years I’ve been hospitalized at Little Company of Mary a few times and marveled at the way I was treated, from the front office registration staff to the nurses and doctors. On those occasions, I often wondered if hospitals were ever rated for the way they conduct themselves. Well, the recent ranking answers that question. By the way, I wonder if there is a list of the number of hospitals in the United States. If we assume that every state has at least 100 hospitals, that would bring the number to 5,000. Of course, some of the less populated states wouldn’t’ have 100 hospitals, but the larger ones, like California, would probably have more, so the 100-hospital average would be met. Since I’m pretty sure the folks at Little Company of Mary don’t read the Rafu, they won’t know of my praise for them. — Gee, it’s hard to believe that in another month baseball season will be getting under way with spring training games. Although I’ve been a Dodgers fan ever since the team moved to Los Angeles from Brooklyn, I won’t be as strong a fan this coming...

Wed, Jan 4, 2012
Portland until retiring in 1982. His first 15 years included making house calls in the evening and weekends.  He served on the medical staff of the old St. Vincent’s, Providence and Woodland Park hospitals and served a term as chief of staff at Woodland Park.  Vance loved the outdoors and had numerous family camping trips and backpacking adventures in the Wallowa Mountains wilderness — a tradition that started when he was a boy and continues with his descendants.  He became a wildflower expert and photographer, which allowed him to compile a portfolio of nearly every wildflower in Oregon. He was a member of the Native Plant Society.  From the time he was a boy, Vance collected stamps. He served as president of the Oregon Stamp Society for years. A portion of his stamp collection and wildflower photos may be seen in the Union County Museum in Union. He and his wife, Joy, supported the Oregon Symphony and Opera. When his sons were young, he put in many years as a troop leader and doctor with the Boys Scouts. He was a long-time member of the Westminster Presbyterian Church, serving as a deacon.  He was an avid reader; loved to dance to big band music; played bridge; worked crossword puzzles; learned watercolor painting; and played the organ. He was a life-time family archivist, writing and compiling records and pictures. He loved traveling through Europe, the Canadian Rockies, Mexico, Alaska and Hawaii, as well as the continental U.S.  In his last 10 years, he took long walks and continued gardening. Those who knew him say Vance had a bright disposition and loved life. He maintained a positive outlook to his final days.  He was preceded in death by his wife, Joy, who died in 1979 from Parkinson’s disease. He later married Ivy Ochsner. She died in 2001.  In addition to his brother, Bob (Vivian), Vance is survived by his children, Terry (MaryAnn), Annie Ocean (Karen), Scott (Margaret), Laurie and Rodger (Lisa), who spent his final three days by his bedside. He is also survived by many grandchildren; great-grandchildren; and nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother, Frank, in 2004. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to any hospice organization.
