George K. McKinney, U.S. marshal - Baltimore Sun

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
In 1973, he was appointed U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia — the third African-American marshal to serve the district — by President Richard M. Nixon."As the U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia, he became the only marshal who personally served a subpoena on President Nixon ordering him to turn over the Watergate tapes," said a daughter, Monica McKinney-Lupton of Glen Arm.On April 18, 1974, U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica ordered Mr. McKinney to serve President Nixon the subpoena regarding the White House tapes.President Nixon's chief defense counsel, James D. St. Clair, told Mr. McKinney that delivering the subpoena was unconstitutional. When Mr. McKinney threatened to deputize the White House Secret Service detail in order to comply with Judge Sirica's orders, the president's lawyer agreed to a meeting with Nixon.Mr. McKinney wasn't sure what the reaction would be from the man who had just appointed him U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia and realized he could be fired."Any time you're dealing with the chief executive in an adversarial role — that's different," Mr. McKinney said in a 1995 interview with The Baltimore Sun. "But I was worried. When backed into a corner, there was no telling what Nixon might do."The president accepted the subpoena from Mr. McKinney, who left his D.C. marshal post in 1977.From 1977 to 1994, he held numerous high-level executive management positions with the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington. Some of the positions included serving as director of justice protective services, assistant director for physical security, senior security specialist, operations security officer and computer security officer.In 1995, President Bill Clinton appointed Mr. McKinney as U.S. marshal for Maryland, the first African-American to hold that position in the state since the founding of the U.S. Marshal Service in 1789."I think it says a lot about the district of Maryland and the country," Mr. McKinney said at the time. "Minority marshals are relatively new. But it's something I've aspired to ever since I was a deputy. I wanted to be in the top job."In the wa...

Roger C. Molander Dies at 71; Stirred Nuclear Protests

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Winston-Salem, N.C., in which runners started at a “ground zero” marker in the center of town. Signs along the way depicted concentric circles of destruction from a nuclear explosion. At Columbia University in Manhattan, students staged a “die-in.” Their faces painted white, they lay on the ground as if struck by a bomb while a band played funeral music. Around the country, there were fasts, prayers and bicycle races. Mr. Molander wrote a small book to stimulate discussion, “Nuclear War: What’s in It for You?” It sold about 350,000 copies. The movement attracted wide support, from conservatives as well as liberals. Reagan said he was “heart and soul in sympathy” with the goal of educating people about nuclear issues. Others were ambivalent: the Washington Post columnist David S. Broder said the demonstrations might help prod the administration to the bargaining table, but he described them as verging on “liberal sentimentalism run amok.” Roger Carl Molander was born on Nov. 20, 1940, in Perham, Minn., and grew up in Marinette, Wis. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, with a degree in mechanical engineering and earned a doctorate from the University of California, Berkeley. In 1973 as a Defense Department official, he was an aide to Paul Nitze, the chief American negotiator with the Soviets. Mr. Molander moved to the National Security Council as a senior staff member in 1974. Ground Zero dissolved into local initiatives and other peace organizations after the big 1982 demonstration, as Mr. Molander moved on to the Roosevelt Center for Policy Studies, a research group, as president and chief executive. He continued to work on arms control, as well as economic policy and other issues. He developed role-playing educational games to educate the public. Under the auspices of the Roosevelt Center, in 1988 Mr. Molander tried to elevate the discussion of arms issues among presidential candidates in the two earliest states to vote, Iowa and New Hampshire. He set up “crash courses” to bring candidates “up to speed” on these questions. Mr. Molander then became a senior analyst at the RAND Corporation. He developed many of the research organization’s “The Day After ...” projects, in which a hypothetical crisis is examined to determine what could have been done differently. In addition to his daughter Egan and his twin brother, Earl, Mr. Molander is survived by his wife of 37 years, Mary Moore; another daughter, Ingrid Molander; and two granddaughters. Earl and Roger Molander wrote an article for The Los Angeles Times in April 1982, pushing the idea that Russian-American conviviality might help peace. “So bring on the Russians,” they wrote. “Try their vodka, listen to their music, read their novels, watch them dance. Maybe take one to lunch and start a conversation on a topic of m... (New York Times)

Could Kansas State's Martin top USC's list as Horn's replacement? - Greenville News

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
SEC that would command attention in a year or two. At Kansas State he was able to do it immediately with the talent left behind, but there isn’t a lot on the shelves in Columbia, surely not as much as there was when Horn replaced Dave Odom. Hyman might balk at Martin because of his association with Curtis Malone, coach of an AAU team in Washington, D.C., but sometimes the appearance of a little risk is nothing more than that – it looks like something could be wrong, but it only looks that way. That might be the case with Martin and Hyman is surely researching all of the stories, like the one from the Topeka Capital-Journal last week when Kansas State’s athletic director suspended Jamar Samuels minutes before the Wildcats’ game against Syracuse: (Page 3 of 3) “Malone, reached Saturday by phone, acknowledged sending money to Samuels before the NCAA Tournament,” the Capital-Journal story reported, “but maintained the financial assistance didn’t constitute an impermissible benefit because of his pre-existing relationship with Samuels and his mother. “Are you talking about me helping a kid who has been at my program, been in Kansas for four years, whenever he’s needed help, his mom has needed me to help?” Malone said. “We are very, very close, like our families and everything. Is that a benefit?” At Kansas State, pressed against a tournament game, they decided to play it safe, Syracuse won and after the game Martin was emotional, taking a very long pause when asked about Samuels before saying only, “He’s our toughest kid.” He was also a fifth year senior who came to the arena not realizing he had already played his last game. Look carefully, Eric Hyman, this is a coach who can transform the basketball program at Carolina, in a good way. Players love him, opponents detest him and, by the way, in his four years at Kansas State his program has the highest graduation rate in the Big-12 according to the Omaha World-Herald. Some risk? Sure, there’s some risk but for a diligent athletics director, the risk doesn’t appear to be a serious concern. And by the way, isn’t there always a risk in trying to make something out of nothing? Isn’t not taking risks how you ended up looking for a new coach in the first place? ...
