Recently retired National Hockey League enforcer Wade Belak was found dead in a downtown Toronto hotel on Wednesday. A spokesperson with the Nashville Predators, Belak’s last NHL team, confirmed the news.

He was 35.

Details have not been released as to the cause of death, but police said they are still investigating.

Toronto police responded to a call around 1:30 p.m. at One King West, an upscale hotel and condominium complex, where they found a man in his 30s without vital signs. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police did not say whether the man was found in a hotel room or in a residential suite, and they did not release his name. Police did not say who made the 911 call.

Belak, a Saskatoon native, was set to take part in the third season of the reality program “Battle of the Blades.”

He retired after 15 seasons — a career that included stops with the Colorado Avalanche, the Calgary Flames, the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Florida Panthers and the Nashville Predators.

David Poile, the Predators’ general manager, said in a statement that the entire Nashville hockey organization and family is shocked and saddened by the sudden passing of the NHL tough guy.

“Wade was a beloved member of the organization, a terrific teammate and wonderful father and husband who will be greatly missed,” Poile said.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to his wife Jennifer and children Andie and Alex. We offer our full support to them at this very difficult time.”

Craig Button, the former general manager of the Calgary Flames when Belak was a team member there early in his career, echoed Poile’s remarks. He told The Canadian Press “he was a guy that on the ice his teammates loved him because he was there to fight the fights, so to speak.”

He added that “off the ice, everybody loved him because he was an outgoing, gregarious guy.”

Shortly after news broke that Belak’s body had been found, thousands of messages flooded Twitter and by early evening, at least 10 Belak memorial pages had been created on Facebook.

Belak’s death comes less than a month after Winnipeg Jets Rick Rypien was found dead. The 27-year-old forward was found in his off-season home in Crowsnest Pass, Alta.

In May, New York Rangers forward Derek Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment because of an accidental mix of alcohol and oxycodene, a painkiller. He was 28.

Workers remove a huge tree that came down on an apartment in central Montreal because of high winds and rain from remnants of Hurricane Irene on Monday.

Aug 30, 2011 8:39 AM ET

Quebec police are investigating whether an 81-year-old man who died after he wandered from a cabin during post-tropical cyclone Irene may have been killed by the storm.

The elderly man, whose name has not been released, was found unconscious in the St-Gérard-des-Laurentides area when the storm began to batter Eastern Canada over the weekend. He later died in hospital, police said Tuesday.

Investigators believe the man may have been trying to reach his family at a home about 12 kilometres away when he left the cottage Sunday on foot.

Meanwhile, rescue crews are still searching for another man who was swept into the Yamaska River northeast of Montreal.

U.S. airlifts to cut-off towns

National Guard helicopters were taking food and water Tuesday to about a dozen flood-ravaged New England towns cut off by washed-out roads and damaged bridges.

About a dozen towns in the southern part of the state were rendered inaccessible by vehicular traffic after heavy rainfall from the remnants of Hurricane Irene on Sunday.

Deputy state Transportation Secretary Sue Minter said state crews hope to re-establish ground contact with all isolated communities by the end of the day.

About 20,000 Vermont utility customers remain without power, but crews can’t begin to restore power until they can reach the affected communities.

Vermont Emergency Management spokesman Mark Bosma says that in addition to Guard helicopters, special trucks are carrying emergency supplies to towns whose roads may be passable for them but not for the public.

Vermont was among the hardest hit of the Eastern Seaboard states slammed by Irene, which left at least 48 killed by the storm, including 43 in the continental U.S. and Puerto Rico. Millions of people were also still without electricity, and utilities warned it could take several days before people get their power back.

-The Associated Press

Quebec provincial police are looking for a taxi driver in his 60s whose car was swept into the Yamaska River about 100 kilometres northeast of Montreal on Monday after a culvert collapsed and part of the road was washed away.

Réal Nadeau’s car and another vehicle were pulled into the water.

The taxi driver’s car was recovered late Monday, but it was empty. Two other men escaped with minor injuries after the collapse, which left a 30-metre-long hole.

Although Irene has been blamed for killing more than 40 people in the U.S., the storm has not yet been linked to any fatalities in Canada.

Tens of thousands still without power

The focus Tuesday was also on recovery and cleanup efforts as crews resumed their work to restore power after thousands were left without electricity in the Maritimes and Quebec.

After smacking southern Quebec on Sunday with heavy rain and howling winds, the system once called Hurricane Irene churned northeast Monday across the province and into Atlantic Canada.

In New Brunswick, progress is being made by NB Power, which has reduced the number of customers without electricity from more than 50,000 on Monday to about 9,000 Tuesday morning as high winds blew trees onto power lines and transformer fires were started during the weekend storm.

Aided by 12 crews from other provinces, New Brunswick teams have been working long hours to restore service, says NB Power spokeswoman Heather MacLean. About 4,400 customers are still without power in Fredericton. Almost 3,000 in Rothesay and a few thousand more in other pockets who are still waiting to get their electricity back. But the utility said it could take until Wednesday or Thursday to achieve that.

“We’ll see some cleanup today, but just because of the sheer number of separate incidents that we have throughout the province, we are going to be going into tomorrow and possibly into early Thursday morning,” MacLean said.

Severe flooding has also left residents in the west end of Oromocto — one of the areas hit by heavy rains, with more than 80 millimetres falling during the storm — with a massive cleanup after Sunday’s flash flooding.

Mayor Faye Tidd said the fire department received 42 calls from residents reporting everything from minor flooding to major damage.”The assessment they made was that some of them, eight houses, should really have electric inspectors come and take a look. They weren’t taking any chances,” he said.

Fredericton received 53 millimetres of rain, but the Doaktown area of central New Brunswick was hit the hardest, receiving 89 millimetres.

In Quebec, where the storm washed out roads, knocked down trees, and downed power lines, 25,000 clients were still without power Tuesday morning, compared to the 250,000 customer outages during the storm’s peak Sunday, according to Hydro-Québec.

Most of those affected are in the Montérégie and Quebec City areas. In Montreal, power has been restored to most of the city.

But even losing power for a couple of days is enough to have an impact on customers, including business owners.

Restaurant owner Syed Shahzad Shah, for one, runs a Pakistani and Indian restaurant in Montreal’s Park-Extension neighbourhood, and estimates he lost $5,000 worth of food.

Shah said it was a bad time to suffer the fallout from Irene, since Monday was the eve of the Muslim holiday of Eid.

“I called to my customers [to say], ‘Sorry, your reservation is cancelled,’ so they [were] angry with me,” he said.

Others affected by the storm included owners of about 300 homes in Quebec that were evacuated because of rising river waters.

A highway that was partially washed out by the storm in the Charlevoix region has been reopened.

U.S. reports at least 48 deaths

Irene didn’t soak Nova Scotia so much, but it did bring high winds.

Power is slowly being restored to about 17,000 customers who lost their electricity Monday morning. The outages stretched from Yarmouth in the southwest to Sydney in Cape Breton.

In P.E.I.., the high winds from post-tropical storm Irene caused travel restrictions and led to power outages and downed trees on Monday. A wind warning remained in effect for most of the day.

The largest outage was in the Wellington West area in the morning. About 6,000 customers were affected when a tree fell on a power line in Richmond, but power was restored within a couple of hours.A man and his daughter scramble across the shoreline rocks after being hit by a wave on Sunday in Peggy's Cove, N.S.

P.E.I. transportation officials were also out on the roads Monday cleaning up fallen trees and broken limbs.

All in all, though, Canada appeared to emerge relatively unscathed from the remnants of the powerful hurricane that killed at least 48 people in the U.S. and left millions of Americans without power.

Ryan Snoddon, a CBC meteorologist based in St. John’s, said Irene’s remnants will make for unusually humid weather in much of Newfoundland and Labrador.

“Those gusty southwest winds will also be pumping in very warm and sticky temperatures [with] humidex values into the 30s,” Snoddon said. “Thanks to Irene, the forecast high in St. John’s is 27 degrees. That would be the warmest temperature the city has seen all summer long.”

August 24th, 2011

Mike Flanagan, a former pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays, was found dead at his home in Baltimore County, Md., on Wednesday.

The Orioles confirmed his death in a statement. He was 59.

Flanagan worked for the Orioles over three decades in numerous roles, both on the field as a player and later as a coach, and off the field as a broadcaster and executive.

Flanagan, a left-hander, won the 1979 Cy Young Award and pitched in two World Series for the Orioles.

His body was found outside his home by authorities who received a 911 call at 4:26 p.m. The cause of death was not immediately determined.

In a statement Wednesday night, Peter Angelos, the Orioles’ managing partner, confirmed the death of Flanagan, who was known as Flanny. Flanagan began his career with the Orioles in 1973 and went on to pitch 18 major league seasons.

“In over a quarter century with the organization, Flanny became an integral part of the Orioles family, for his accomplishments both on and off the field,” the statement read. “His loss will be felt deeply and profoundly by all of us with the ballclub and by Orioles fans everywhere who admired him.”

Flanagan won 167 games in his career, with his best season coming in 1979, when he was 23-9 with a 3.08 earned run average.

The Orioles lost the World Series to the Pittsburgh Pirates that year but won it in 1983, when Flanagan went 12-4 despite missing nearly three months with a knee injury.

Last season, Flanagan began as a broadcaster on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, a regional sports network owned by the Orioles and the Washington Nationals.

Flanagan is survived by his wife, Alex, and daughters Kathryn, Kerry and Kendall.

Actor Michael Showers, perhaps best known for his work as Captain John Guidry
on the HBO
series “Treme,”
was found dead in the Mississippi River early Wednesday
morning. He was 45 years old.

According to local New Orleans paper the Times-Picayune, authorities said a steamboat captain
spotted a body floating in the water near the French Quarter around 11:15 a.m.
on Wednesday. The body was recovered from the river at 11:45 a.m. and has been
identified as Showers.

John Gagliano, chief investigator for the Orleans Parish coroner’s office,
told the paper that Showers, who reportedly lived in the nearby Chalmette area,
appeared to have been in the water for two days. An autopsy will be conducted to
determine the exact cause of death.

In addition to his role on the Emmy-nominated “Treme,” Showers had turns on
other television series including “Breaking Bad” and “The Vampire Diaries.” He
appeared on the big screen as well, with roles in “Traffic,” “I Love You Philip
Morris” and this year in Terrence
Malick’s “The Tree of Life.”

'Jimmy Kimmel' mourns the loss of 'Uncle Frank'

August 23rd, 2011    05:20 PM ET

Jimmy Kimmel’s “Uncle Frank” Potenza has passed away at the
age of 77, ABC confirms to CNN.

Kimmel’s uncle was a security guard for the show and contributed “great
moments” on-air for nine years.

“It is with great sadness that the staff and crew of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
mourn the loss of ‘Uncle Frank’ Potenza,” the show says in a statement. “He was
beloved by his co-workers and considered an Uncle to all.” Potenza was a Korean War veteran who served 20 years as a
New York City police officer. He worked for 20 years as a security guard at
Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas and five years at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New
York before joining Kimmel’s talk show in 2003.

“Uncle Frank” leaves behind his three daughters, as well as newborn
granddaughter Franki. “His kindness and humor will be missed by everyone he
touched,” says a rep for the show.

The owner of a south Philadelphia cheesesteak shop who once instructed customers
to order only in English has died, according to to relatives.

Joey Vento had a heart attack at home and died Tuesday on the way to the
hospital, said Joseph Perno, his nephew and manager of the shop.

“Things are a little somber tonight,” Perno told CNN affiliate KYW behind the
grill at Geno’s. “But he’s in our hearts.”

Vento founded Geno’s in 1966 in Philadelphia, where it sits across the street
from another cheesesteak shop, Pat’s King of Steaks.

Pat’s claims to have invented the cheesesteak in 1933, but both stores
welcome a plethora of visitors to the City of Brotherly Love each year, and
serve the popular steak sandwiches 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

For more than 40 years, the rivals have been engaged in a friendly
competition over who makes the city’s best cheesesteak.

Geno’s became a popular stop for presidential candidates on the campaign
trail and a photo gallery on the restaurant’s website shows employees posing
with celebrities such as Oprah, Shaquille O’Neal and Ray Romano.

Vento made national headlines in 2006 when he posted a sign on one of his
restaurant’s windows that read, “This is America. When ordering, please speak
English.”

The sign prompted the Philadelphia commission on human relations to file a
discrimination suit.

Vento said he was using “common sense” by expecting Americans to speak
English at his establishment, and refused to take down the sign. Two years after
the controversy began, the suit was overturned.

Since his death, fans are using Twitter and Facebook to leave messages.

“Joey Vento was a true American patriot,” one message read.

Others paid tribute to his famed sandwiches.

“Thank you for making the world just a little bit better by
being here. Now heaven will have the best cheesesteaks in the world!! RIP
Joey”

German Comedian Loriot Dead

08/23/11 12:48 PM ET

German humorist Vicco von Buelow, often cited by Germans as proof of their sense of humor and known to the nation simply by his nom de plume, “Loriot,” has died. He was 87.

Von Buelow died of old age in his hometown of Ammerland in Bavaria on Monday night, his publisher, Zurich-based Diogenes Verlag AG, said Tuesday.

He was lauded by the nation’s Die Zeit weekly as a German cultural figure on a par with classical writers Friedrich Schiller or Wolfgang Goethe.

“Loriot wants to be funny. And, compared to many others who also want that, he actually succeeds, enormously, again and again,” Patrick Sueskind, author of the novel “Perfume,” said of von Buelow.

Born into an aristocratic German family north of Berlin in 1923, von Buelow started out drawing cartoons in the 1950s for the national magazine Stern.

Two decades later, he adopted the name “Loriot,” French for oriole, from the bird pictured on his family’s coat of arms. He created a cartoon dog called “Wum,” whose popularity sparked a career that went on to include several TV cartoon series, songs and more than 50 books.

Chancellor Angela Merkel praised von Buelow as an “acute observer of daily life” whose “unique ability to lovingly hold a mirror to our faces will be missed.”

“His works will continue to make young and old laugh – and enlighten them on the essence of being German,” Merkel said.

Von Buelow’s drawings were known for their satirical view of daily life, depicted by potato-nosed caricatures of middle-class Germans.

“Comedy requires a certain hero’s fall,” Von Buelow said in an 2003 interview with the Austrian weekly Falter. “When a person makes a serious attempt at something and fails, you have comedy.”

Von Buelow’s enormous popularity is reflected in a number of colloquial phrases that have seeped into everyday speech, including the expression of surprise or confusion “Ach, was!” or “yodel diploma,” to describe a worthless educational degree.

“`Loriot’ taught us to laugh at the most complicated, and the simplest, difficulties in life,” German President Christian Wulff said.

Von Buelow was decorated with several of Germany’s most important literary awards and in 1998 received the German “Great Cross of Merit with Star,” one of the country’s highest decorations.

A well-known German film director, Dieter Wedel, best summed up Germans’ adoration of von Buelow when he quipped, “The Germans don’t have any sense of humor – the Germans have Loriot!”

His publisher said the burial will be private.

New York City hospital, said Liz Rosenberg, who was Ashford’s longtime friend.
He had been suffering from throat cancer and
had undergone radiation treatment, she told the Associated Press.

Though
they had some of their greatest success at Motown with classics such as “Ain’t No Mountain High
Enough”
and “Reach
Out And Touch Somebody’s Hand”
by Ross and “You’re All I Need To Get
By”
by Gaye and Tammi Terrell, Ashford & Simpson also created anthems
for others, like “I’m
Every Woman”
by Khan (and later remade by Whitney
Houston
).

“They had magic, and that’s what creates those wonderful
hits, that magic,” Verdine White of Earth,
Wind and Fire
said after learning of his friend’s death. “Without those
songs, those artists wouldn’t have been able to go to the next
level.”

Ashford & Simpson also had success writing for themselves:
Perhaps the best-known song they sang was the 1980s hit “Solid as a
Rock.”

Their relationship stretched more than four decades. They met in
1964 in a New York City church; Ashford, who was born in South Carolina in 1941,
had come to the city to pursue a dance career. Simpson was a music student, and
after connecting with her, they decided to start to write songs
together.

“They were always comfortable with each other, and they made
all of us comfortable, because they were comfortable,” White said.

Their
first major success occurred when they came up with “Let’s Go Get Stoned” for Ray Charles.
That song became a huge hit, and soon, they came to the attention of Motown
Records
and began penning hits for the label’s artists. They started out
writing for Gaye and Terrell; in fact, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” was
originally their hit, until Ross later rerecorded it and made it her signature
song.

“The thing is, they were married and working together, that was
what was special about them; everybody admired that,” White said.

The
duo, who were married for 38 years, helped sell millions of records for several
artists.

In recent years, the pair continued to perform. They also were
owners of the New York City restaurant Sugar Bar, where many top names and
emerging talents would put on showcases.

Ashford is survived by his wife
and two daughters.

File:Jack Layton - 2011.jpg

Aug 22, 2011 8:40 AM ET

Family, friends and colleagues are remembering NDP Leader Jack Layton as news starts to sink in that the politician known for his warmth and personality has died.

Friends and political foes alike praised Layton on Monday for his warmth, optimism and respect for opponents.

People who squared off politically against Layton, including former prime ministers Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin, as well as Prime Minister Stephen Harper and interim Liberal Leader Bob Rae, all spoke warmly about the NDP leader’s commitment to Canadians.

Layton, who led Canada’s Official Opposition, died early Monday morning at his Toronto home after a battle with cancer. He was 61.

Layton’s wife, Olivia Chow, and his children, Sarah and Michael Layton, issued a statement announcing his death.

“We deeply regret to inform you that the Honourable Jack Layton, leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada, passed away at 4:45 am today, Monday August 22. He passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by family and loved ones,” the statement read.

State funeral Saturday

Layton will be honoured with a state funeral Saturday in Toronto, senior NDP officials have told CBC News.

The government protocol office is working with the NDP and family of the NDP leader on exactly what the funeral will be.

Condolence books will be set up in Ottawa on Parliament Hill and in Toronto at city hall. Others will be located in NDP constituency offices across the country.

On Monday, mourners, many bearing flowers and other tributes, arrived at Layton’s Toronto constituency office. Friends and areas residents also arrived at his home on the quiet side street where he lived with Chow.

Social media was used to quickly organize public tributes, including gatherings on Parliament Hill, a rally in Toronto, and a nighttime vigil being planned in Vancouver.

On Monday evening, about 300 people were near the Centennial Flame at Parliament Hill, many leaving flowers, cans of Orange Crush that symbolize the NDP’s official colour, and notes. The crowd, many bearing candles, sang O Canada as the sun set.

The family released a letter from Layton to Canadians just after noon.

Layton had been battling new cancer

Layton’s death comes less than a month after he announced to the country that he was fighting a new form of cancer and was taking time off for treatment. Layton had been diagnosed with prostate cancer in late 2009 and underwent treatment for it. He continued working throughout that time and also battled a broken hip earlier this year. Layton used a cane for much of his time on the campaign trail this spring as he led the NDP to a historic victory on May 2.

His party claimed 103 seats, and was propelled to official Opposition status. Layton and his party were getting used to their new roles in Parliament but he did not appear to be in good health near the end of June. He said he felt pain and stiffness, he underwent tests and they confirmed he had a new form of cancer. He did not disclose what kind of cancer.

Layton’s chief of staff, Anne McGrath, said Monday that Layton’s condition took a quick turn for the worse Sunday night.

She spent a few hours with him Saturday and had a sense that he was losing a battle, but says his campaign slogan – don’t let them tell you it can’t be done – was also a personal slogan.

“It is a huge loss. It is a huge loss for me personally, but it’s a huge loss also for our party and our country,” she said.

McGrath worked with Layton for nearly a decade.

“There’s no question that my heart is broken,” she said.

McGrath said Layton was thinking about what it would mean for the party if he died. When they spoke on Saturday, they talked about upcoming events like the party’s annual caucus retreat in September and what Parliament would be like if he weren’t there.

Layton always liked to be presented with options, McGrath told Evan Solomon on CBC’s Power & Politics, including a plan for what would happen if he died.

“He was very, very practical and he was very much wanting to know that we were going to be able to continue and we were going to be strong,” she said.

After the news of Layton’s death emerged shortly after 8 a.m. ET, friends, colleagues and Canadians reacted quickly and with shock, sadness and tears. The flag on the Peace Tower was lowered to half-mast.

Harper saddened by news

Layton’s last letter

“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world,” Jack Layton writes just days before his death. Read more

Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Layton will be remembered for the force of his personality and his dedication to public life.

Speaking from the foyer of the House of Commons, Harper said the two leaders had always talked about getting together to jam.

“I will always regret the jam session that never was. That is a reminder, I think, that we must always make time for friends, family and loved ones, while we still can,” he said.

In a statement earlier Monday, Harper saluted Layton’s contribution to public life and said it would be sorely missed.

“I know one thing: Jack gave his fight against cancer everything he had. Indeed, Jack never backed down from any fight,” he said.

Tributes to Layton poured in from across party lines. Rae said the news took his breath away and that Layton’s death is not just a loss for the NDP, but for all Canadians.

“It’s a loss for the country because he was a political guy who believed strongly in politics and who had a lot of resilience and a lot of guts,” Rae told CBC News.

NDP colleagues shocked

Longtime NDP leader and MP Ed Broadbent told CBC News he sensed the end was coming, but was still shocked when he got the call Monday morning.

“In each and every election, he moved us forward … he wanted a reason in politics,” Broadbent said.

“Canada has lost a great politician. A man who believed in working for the public good. And I’ve lost a personal friend.”

Interim NDP Leader Nycole Turmel spoke of one of Layton’s favourite quotes from Tommy Douglas, the founder of the CCF, the NDP’s forerunner. Layton included the quote in every email he sent: “Courage my friends, ‘tis never too late to build a better world.”

“Jack was a courageous man. It was his leadership that inspired me, and so many others, to run for office,” Turmel said in her statement.

“We – members of Parliament, New Democrats and Canadians – need to pull together now and carry on his fight to make this country a better place.”

NDP deputy leader Libby Davies, fighting back tears, said Layton’s death is “an incredible loss.”

“Jack was not only a great leader of the NDP, he’s someone that Canadians across the country came to love. We feel a tremendous sense of loss and grief,” she said.

Davies said Layton brought a sense of humanity to Canadian politics and in his career and his life, especially his battle with cancer, “he gave it his all.”

“We have only love and respect for everything that he did and he leaves some really important legacies in Canadian politics,” she said.

The NDP appointed Turmel to take over for Layton temporarily. Layton wanted to be back at work in time for Parliament’s fall session in mid-September.

Jack Layton, speaking at the NDP's 50th anniversary convention in June, led his party past the Liberals to become the Official Opposition during the spring election.

Douglas’ daughter, Shirley, says Layton was the same whether he was in a crowded room or meeting people one-on-one.

“Everywhere I’ve gone, people said ‘You know, we’ve got a leader who cared’,” she told CBC News.

Douglas says she’s worried about Chow.

“That’s the one person I keep thinking about all morning,” she said. “They were so close and when a marriage that is as close as that one … it’s a terrible thing to see that marriage broken apart by this. I just couldn’t say enough to her. She’s a tremendous woman on her own.”

The leader of the Official Opposition announced on July 25 he was stepping away from the job to concentrate on his cancer treatment. He told Canadians he had recently been diagnosed with a new form of cancer, in addition to the prostate cancer he had earlier battled.

Mike Stoller, left, and Jerry Leiber in 1994.

August 22, 2011     2:16 pm

Jerry Leiber, who with his songwriting partner Mike Stoller created a songbook that infused the rock ‘n’ roll scene of the 1950s and early ’60s with energy and mischievous humor, has died. He was 78.

Leiber, the words half of the duo, died Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles of cardiopulmonary failure, said Randy Poe, president of the songwriters’ publishing company.

Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1985 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1987, Leiber and his lifelong writing partner, Stoller, wrote hits that included Elvis Presley’s rat-a-tat-tat rendition of “Hound Dog” in 1956 and Peggy Lee’s 1969 recording of the jaded “Is That All There Is?”

But they may be best remembered for the ebullient, impudent hits written for the Clovers (“Love Potion No. 9″), the Drifters (“Ruby Baby”), the Cheers (“Black Denim Trousers and Motorcycle Boots”), the Robins (“Smokey Joe’s Cafe,” “Riot in Cell Block No. 9″) and, especially, a Robins’ spinoff group that Leiber and Stoller helped create, the Coasters (“Searchin’,” “Yakety Yak,” “Poison Ivy,” “Charlie Brown,” “Down in Mexico,” “Little Egypt”).

As Leiber-Stoller biographer Robert Graham wrote, the Coasters’ songs “were arguably the most enduring and hands-down funniest records of the rock ‘n’ roll era.”

With their sassy lyrics and playful melodies, the songs liberated American teenagers to enjoy their youth and poke fun at their elders.

“They corrupted us with pleasure,” critic and author John Lahr wrote of the songwriters in the introduction to Graham’s “Baby, That Was Rock & Roll: The Legendary Leiber and Stoller” (1978). “Dancing and laughing, we came of age to their songs.”

Dozens of other artists have recorded Leiber and Stoller songs: the Beatles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, Fats Domino, the Everly Brothers, Barbra Streisand, Edith Piaf, the Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin and more. The songwriters’ most oft-recorded tune is the laid-back, bluesy “Kansas City,” which has been sung by such performers as Little Willie Littlefield in 1952 (as “KC Lovin’”), Wilbert Harrison, whose 1959 hit with it is probably the best-known, and Paul McCartney in the late 1980s.

In 1995, a musical based on Leiber and Stoller songs, “Smokey Joe’s Cafe,” opened on Broadway and ran for more than 2,000 performances.

A remembrance at the grounds of the Indiana State Fair

August 22, 2011    7:16am

It was reported Monday morning that the Indiana State Fair stage collapse had claimed a seventh victim. That news was premature. The Associated Press has withdrawn an earlier report that 24-year-old Meagan Toothman has died and is now reporting that she remains on life support, pending surgery to harvest her organs for donation.]

The stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair earlier this month has claimed the life of yet another person, bringing the death toll to seven.

The latest victim is a 24-year-old woman who coached high school cheerleading in Cincinnati. Indiana State Police identified her as Meagan Toothman, according to the Associated Press.

Photos: Deadly stage collapse

The stage collapsed Aug. 13 when high winds — 70 to 80 miles per hour — sent the rigging crashing down on the audience.

In the days since the collapse, many people have been asking tough questions about whether the tragedy could have been prevented. Attorney Kenneth J. Allen, who filed a lawsuit last week on behalf of two of the victims, said the stage rigging was not inspected or permitted and that fair officials failed to heed storm warnings issued by the National Weather Service. He said authorities should have evacuated the fairgrounds when they learned that a major storm was headed directly toward the site.

It is believed that three people were killed immediately by the collapse, with others succumbing to their injuries in the hours and days that followed. The death of another victim, Jennifer Haskell, 22, was announced Friday.

2:24pm UK, Thursday August 18, 2011

A 14-year-old boy has been found stabbed to death in a North London Park.

Police have named him as Leroy James.

His address has not been released but he is understood to have lived
nearby.

His body was discovered next to a concrete wall in the middle of Ponders End
recreation ground in Enfield at 5.30pm yesterday.

The park remains cordoned off as police as forensic teams looks for
clues.

Tributes on a Facebook page set up
in his memory
included one from Samantha Lautner, which read:
“R.I.P I still can’t belive it. I was only talking to you a couple of days
ago!

“I’ll always remember the memories we had. You will never ever be
forgotten.”

Another from Frankie Kennedy read: “Heaven gained an angel, will always be
missed & never forgotten iloveyouLeroy (sic).”

Detectives have made an appeal for the public’s help and an incident room has
been set up, as police launch a murder inquiry.

A post mortem will be carried out at Haringey mortuary later today.

Detective Chief Inspector Caroline Goode, leading the investigation, said:
“We urgently need to trace anyone who was in the park around that time on
Wednesday afternoon, and who may have seen the incident in which Leroy was
stabbed.

“At this early stage we retain an open mind on the circumstances of the
assault, and do need the public’s assistance.”

Leroy, from Edmonton, north London, was the eighth teenager stabbed to death
in the capital this year.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Emily Spickler

August 17, 2011    2:21PM

EMILY Spickler was preparing to celebrate her birthday in the place
she called “paradise”.

Instead, her grieving US family has been left searching for answers after the
sudden death of their model daughter at her Toowoomba university campus,
reported The Courier-Mail.

She had arrived just six weeks ago on a one-year exchange.

Emily, who would have turned 20 tomorrow was found dead in her on-campus room
in McGregor College at the University of Southern Queensland in Toowoomba about
6.30pm on Monday.

Post mortem results received Wednesday afternoon have revealed Emily died of
natural causes.

Jeff Spickler, 60, speaking from Shepherdstown, West Virginia, said his
daughter had fallen ill over the weekend but, in her last phone call home, she
had told her parents not to worry.

“We don’t know what happened,” Mr Spickler said.

“Emily had talked to her mother on Sunday and said she was sick, throwing up,
that sort of thing. She thought maybe she had food poisoning. My wife told her
to go to the campus medical facility but it was closed on the weekend.

“So then her mother said to go to the ER (emergency room). Em said she would
see how she felt, but called back later to say she was feeling better.”

Jeff Spickler told the Courier Mail about 7am today Queensland time that the
USQ were making travel arrangements for them to fly to Australia, but he said he
was not yet sure when his family would be leaving.

He said he, his wife Jill and their 16-year-old son Levi would all be coming
to retrieve Emily’s body, before taking her home to Sheperdstown for a
funeral.

Aidan Burke, USQ Director of Communications, said the university’s travel
office was still working out the travel plans for the Spickler family.

He said USQ would cover the cost of the Spickler family’s flights and
accommodation while in Australia.

“It’s not as simple as getting them a ticket, we also have to get them visas
and things like that,” Mr Burke said.

Mr Spickler said he hoped his family would be able to arrive in Australia by
the end of the week.

“We’re assuming we’ll be there sometime by the weekend or before,” he
said.

Mr Spickler said Jill was trying to ring their daughter on Monday morning (US
time) when the US consulate called to inform them of Emily’s death.

Mr Spickler said his oldest child was loving, compassionate and witty.

“Emily was loving life over there. She thought it was paradise,” he said.

“She loved to meet people, loved to write, loved school and loved modelling.
How much more could you do?”

USQ deputy vice chancellor Professor Graham Baker said the university was
focusing on supporting Miss Spickler’s family and her university friends and
staff and counselling services were available.

University friends of Miss Spickler were expected to hold a small candlelit
vigil late last night at McGregor College.

One of Miss Spickler’s journalism lecturers, Rebecca Te’o, yesterday told how
the sudden death had shocked the “tight-knit” group of students on the
course.

“Emily was a lovely girl and a lovely student. I think she will be missed
across the board,” she said.

Emily was a journalism student at West Virginia University in Morgantown, a
ballet dancer, a model and an aspiring fashion writer.

She arrived in Australia in July in time for university to start, and planned
to stay for a year.

She wrote on her blog about enjoying her stay in Australia, how touched she
was that Australians were so welcoming of international students, and that she
hoped to return to Brisbane for the weekend to celebrate her birthday.

“I’m definitely going to remember their kindness when I go back to my home
university next year, and will hopefully remember to extend the same type of
courtesy to international students,” she wrote on July 17.

Childhood friends Olivia Lloyd, Kristin Sauve, Caroline Miskovsky and Natalie
Snyder, all 20, described Emily as a beautiful, smart and funny person.

“Emily was an incredible person and was really smart – really, really smart,”
Miss Lloyd said.

“She was the sort of person when she believed in something, she really stuck
with it.”

Miss Lloyd said Emily had always had a passion for writing, even upsetting
parents in Year 5 when she wrote a romance novel.

Olga Moskalyova

August 18, 2011    8:52AM

A DISTRAUGHT mother listened on a mobile phone as her teenage
daughter was eaten alive by a brown bear and its three cubs.

Olga Moskalyova, 19, gave an horrific hour-long running commentary on her own
death in three separate calls as the wild animals mauled her.

She screamed: ‘Mum, the bear is eating me! Mum, it’s such agony. Mum,
help!’

Her mother Tatiana said that at first she thought she was joking.

‘But then I heard the real horror and pain in Olga’s voice, and the sounds of
a bear growling and chewing,’ she added. ‘I could have died then and there from
shock.’

Unknown to Tatiana, the bear had already killed her husband Igor Tsyganenkov
- Olga’s stepfather – by overpowering him, breaking his neck and smashing his
skull.

Olga, a trainee psychologist, saw the ­attack on her stepfather in tall grass
and reeds by a river in Russia and fled for 70 yards before the mother bear
grabbed her leg.

As the creature toyed with her, she managed to call Tatiana several times
during the prolonged attack.Tatiana rang her husband – not knowing he was
­already dead – but got no answer.

She alerted the police and relatives in the village of Termalniy, near Petropavlovsk
Kamchatskiy
, in the extreme east of Siberia.

She begged them to rush to the river where the pair had gone to retrieve a
fishing rod that Igor had left.

In a second call, a weak Olga gasped: ‘Mum, the bears are back. She came back
and brought her three babies. They’re… eating me.’

Finally, in her last call – almost an hour after the first – Olga sensed she
was on the verge of death.

With the bears having apparently left her to die, she said: ‘Mum, it’s not
hurting any more. I don’t feel the pain. Forgive me for everything, I love you
so much.’

Half an hour later, Igor’s brother Andrei arrived with police to find the
mother bear still devouring his body.

Badly mauled Olga was also dead.

Six hunters were sent in by the
emergency services to kill the mother bear and her three cubs.

The double
killing is the latest in a spate of bear attacks across ­Russia, as the hungry
animals seek food in areas where people have ­encroached and settled on their
former habitat.

A weeping Tatiana said that Olga had everything to look forward to, and was
happy with her life and boyfriend Stepan.

‘My daughter was such fun. She was so cheerful, friendly, and warm,’ said
Tatiana.

‘She had graduated from music school, and just days before the bear attack
she got her driving ­licence.’

Her husband and daughter are due to be buried today.

Mauled to death … Ayen Chol, right, pictured with her older brother.

August 18, 2011 – 2:31PM

The four-year-old girl mauled to death in a dog attack in Melbourne’s  north-west last night was clinging to her mother’s leg when she was fatally  set  upon by the pit bull terrier, it has been revealed.

It is believed the dog escaped from a neighbour’s yard and entered  the home  where Ayen Chol and several other children were watching   television.

Ayen died at the scene. A cousin, Anglina Mayout, 31, suffered  bite wounds to her hands and arms and her five-year-old daughter Nyadeng Goaer was bitten on  the back of the head.

Ayen’s mother today said killing the animal would not bring her daughter back.

The Brimbank Council this morning released a statement that said the dog – which was not registered and had not been the subject of complaints in the past – would be put down once it had been examined by police.

Jackline Anchito said she was devastated at the loss of her daughter, who had tried to fight off the dog.

“She was a loving child, and a very clever child. She died as she was struggling for her life.”

Mrs Anchito said her cousin, who owned the house, was walking a family friend out of the front of the home when they were confronted by the dog, which attacked them.

They turned to run inside and the dog followed them, turning on the children.

As Mrs Anchito tried to pull the dog off the five-year-old girl who was being attacked, it turned on Ayen, who was clinging to her mother’s leg.

Ayen suffered massive injuries and could not be revived.

Daniel Atem said the dog had torn Ayen from her mother’s leg.

“It [the dog] pulled the child from the mum… the  daughter died, the dog left the child and then the owner of the dog came  after that and took the dog out,” Mr Atem said.

Mrs Achito claimed she did not get any help from the dog’s owners. The interpreter said Mrs Achito was “crying, crying, asking for help”.

Mr Atem said Ayen’s father, an education official visiting South Sudan, had been contacted and was returning home.

“He’s very, very, very sad. The elders community in southern Sudan will counsel him,” Mr Atem said.

Mother, daughter recover in hospital

Western Health director of surgical services, Trevor Jones, said five-year-old Nyadeng had several cuts to her head that went down to her skull and had to be cleaned because of the risk of infection.

The girl underwent surgery at Sunshine Hospital this morning and was expected to make a full recovery.

Ms Mayout suffered wounds to her left forearm and will be operated on tonight.

Associate professor Jones said the ragged cuts were typical of a dog attack.

“Any dog attack that causes a death is as bad as it gets. These sort of things have happened before and will happen again,” he said.

He said he expected both patients would be discharged within three days.

Neighbours helpless as dog goes on rampage

Neighbours this morning told of the horrific scene inside the Chol house in Lahy Street, St Albans, including desperate attempts to revive the little girl.

One neighbour said he was inside his house about 8pm when he heard Ayen’s mother screaming for help on the street.

He ran to the red brick home and saw Ayen lying on the floor with serious wounds to her head.

The neighbour, who did not want to be identified, began trying to resuscitate her with instructions over the phone from the paramedics.

“It’s something that I will have to live with for a long time,” the distraught man said.

“We were just trying to revive her and we couldn’t do anything about it.

“Three of us were trying to revive the kid. We were trying to find a heart beat. There were a couple of beats initially but she was gone after that.”

He said the owner of the dog had raced to the victim’s home and dragged the animal home, before returning to the scene.

He said the dog’s owner was “devastated” after the attack. The animal was later removed from the premises and is expected to be euthanased, police said.

Other neighbours said they had often heard the pit bull cross barking in the street, but few had seen the animal.

Anisah Mama, who lives next door to the house where the dog lives, said she had been scared in the past for her two children, aged nine and 13.

She had not seen the dog in the three years her family had been living in the home, but said they often heard barking.

“Actually this dog is quite aggressive,” she said.

“While the children play they hear the dog barking and they are scared sometimes. I said ‘don’t worry, he’s inside’.”

Mrs Mama said she had never talked to the victim’s family, but had seen them on the street and the children playing outside.

“I can say they are good people. They are fun-loving people,” she said.

“It’s very awful, very sad.”

Other neighbours were in tears as they stood on the street this morning digesting the events of last night.

One woman, who asked not to be identified, said she had a child the same age as the girl who was killed.

“It’s too close. My little girl, she rides her bike around here. Now I’m not so sure about that any more,” she said.

“I could hear crying and a female voice [last night]. It’s too close to home. People are shocked to realise the little girl is dead.”

A grandmother who lives on Lahy Street said: “They should destroy the dog. I don’t know why they let them have those dogs at all.”

Resident Dejan Lazic said it was a yellow dog that was kept in its yard.

Today, Mrs Anchito said the owners of the dog should have done more to stop  the animal from straying on to their property and attacking her  family.

“There’s nothing I would really wish to be done to the dog. At the  end of the day even if the dog is killed it’s not going to compensate  the life of my daughter,” a devastated Mrs Anchito said through an  interpreter.

“The only person that needs to be asking that question [whether the  dog is put down] is the owner of the dog and the local council. Psych  dogs living in the community are very dangerous.”

She said the owners of the dog had “let her down”.

“They should have had some sort of way to control the dog, either physically or they should know how to control the dog.”

Police this morning knocked on the door of the dog owner’s home, but no one answered. A detective later emerged from the home and said the family wished to make no comment.

Mrs Achito said she hoped she would be “very safe” when she moved to  Australia from South Sudan, but she had been beset by many problems  since she arrived.

Her house burnt down several months ago, and Mrs Achito herself was attacked by another dog two months ago.

She said a “trail of some sort of bad luck” seemed to be following her.

‘A really horrible tragedy’

Describing the scene inside the house as distressing, Brimbank Superintendent Graham Kent said the owner could face charges.

“This is a really horrible tragedy and it will take some time for us to fully understand what happened,” he said.

Last night about 30 people, including several children wrapped in blankets,  gathered in the quiet suburban street, which had been cordoned off by  police after the attack. Some of the people embraced each other while  others sobbed into mobile phones. One woman was wailing hysterically.

Daniel Atem said   the dead girl was the  youngest of three children and had two brothers aged nine and 12. He  described her as “a lovely little girl, very talkative and popular in  kindergarten”.

He said Ayen had been living with her brothers and  her mother at their cousin’s house at the time of the attack after their previous house burnt down last month.

The girl’s father, Mawien Chol, was in South Sudan, having left Melbourne to join independence celebrations, he said.

The family is believed to have arrived in Australia in 2004 after spending three years in Egypt awaiting resettlement.

Breed in the firing line

The Baillieu government will move to make dangerous dog owners criminally responsible for dog attacks following the fatal mauling.

Agriculture Minister Peter Walsh said this morning the government would consider laws similar to culpable driving.

The amnesty for registering dangerous dogs will also be brought to an end, meaning that unregistered dogs can be seized and destroyed.

Mr Walsh said there were an estimated 10,000 unregistered dangerous dogs in Victoria.

Only last Saturday, police used capsicum spray to subdue a  pit bull terrier that had savaged an elderly woman’s Scottish terrier  in a Ballarat Street, then turned on two men who intervened.

The last reported fatality involving a dog attack in  Victoria was in 2007, when a nine-week-old girl was dragged from her cot  and mauled by a pet rottweiler. She died from severe head and neck  wounds.

Penalties for an owner or person in control of a dog that  attacks or bites any person depend on the seriousness of the attack and  whether the dog had been declared to be dangerous before the attack  began, according to Victoria Legal Aid.

In March last year, the owner of an unregistered Siberian husky that savaged a then 22-month-old girl was fined more than $6000.

In Victoria, according to a council  survey taken about  four years ago, about  3300 dog attacks were reported  in one year.

Dog behaviour specialist Brad Griggs today called for harsher penalties for rogue owners after the tragedy.

He said dog behaviour training should be  mandatory and governments should abolish breed-specific regulations because pit bulls were not more dangerous than other breeds.

Mr Lazic said he owned two dogs – a Staffordshire cross and a rottweiler -  but he was concerned for the safety of his two-year-old daughter.

“I’m planning on putting my rottweiler to sleep,” he said.

Mr Lazic said area was home to a large number of immigrants, who generally got on well. People regularly walked their dogs down Lahy Street, he said.

This morning no one has entered or left the dog owner’s home, where the shutters are drawn.

A man who allegedly was bitten by a dog during a party in Houston has been charged with killing the animal’s owner.

Police say 37-year-old Walter Hinton was arrested Wednesday on a murder charge. He was caught at a home in northeast Houston. Electronic jail records did not immediately provide further details on Hinton or whether he has an attorney.

Police say Hinton was bitten on the leg, allegedly by a dog owned by 60-year-old Robert Jones, and the men began to argue. Police say Hinton left the party but returned with a pistol and fatally shot Jones and wounded two other  men Saturday.

Investigators say both wounded men have been treated for non-life threatening  injuries.

PHOTO: Jack Slavinski Jr.

August 17th, 2011

Jack Slivinski Jr.’s decision to pose for a hunky firefighters’ calendar that would benefit widows of fallen colleagues reflected what he loved about the Philadelphia Fire Department‘s elite rescue unit: “We don’t leave anybody behind.”

The former Marine took pride in upholding the ethic that made his job so satisfying. “To be able to help the citizens of Philadelphia is super-rewarding,” he said in an online video accompanying the 2012 calendar being released Thursday.

From Day 1, Slivinski was going to be featured on the cover, not only because he was strikingly handsome, with china-blue eyes, thick wavy hair, an easy smile and a buff body. “Mr. Philadelphia” also would represent the city where Benjamin Franklin started the nation’s first volunteer fire department.

But his high-profile role had unanticipated consequences. He shot himself to death at home June 25, a month after his 32nd birthday. He left no suicide note.

Now, like others who lose a son or daughter to suicide, his parents, John “Jack” Slivinski Sr. and Gerry Slivinski, are struggling to find meaning in his death.

Sure, Jack Jr. had his share of troubles, including a separation from his wife, although he had hoped for reconciliation. They knew he was unhappy; he’d recently begun taking antidepressants. He might have experienced residual sadness from the death of Lt. Derrick Harvey, 45, a close friend and colleague who died after trying to rescue Slivinski and another firefighter from a burning house, unaware they’d escaped.

The Slivinskis say, however, that unanticipated censure for baring much of his buff body in the “Nation’s Bravest: Firefighters Unite” calendar fueled their son’s despair. Despite the rawness of their grief, the two are coming to New York for Thursday’s calendar launch party at a SoHo nightclub, where they’ll meet the other featured firefighters. They’ll attend another calendar party in Philadelphia Sept. 7, with proceeds funding the Widows Fund of the International Association of Fire Fighters Local 22.

 

 

Grieving Parents Support Son’s Participation in Calendar

“We’re going to support my son,” Gerry Slivinski, 56, said Tuesday in an interview from her Philadelphia home.

“It makes me feel good that they’re doing these things for my son and the widows, but I don’t know if it’s helping me or not,” said Jack Slivinski Sr., 60, an original member of Philly’s elite rescue unit.

After taking a month off, he returned to work because “I couldn’t be in the house by myself with the four walls.”

Fellow firefighters have been exceptionally helpful to him, his wife and their daughter, Jennifer. “Anything we need,” he said. “They’re bending over backwards.”

Firefighters have expressed support for Jack Jr.; a Facebook page attests to the many people who cared about him. More than 1,000 people came to the memorial service honoring the former altar boy.

After high school, Slivinski spent four years with the Marines, then joined his father in the fire department. Special Marine Corps training in nuclear, biological and chemical weapons made it possible for him to take over his father’s spot in the Rescue 1 squad in 2005. He also pursued his love of cooking, working part-time as a sous-chef at Apollinaire, an Italian restaurant in Philadelphia. He hoped to open his own restaurant some day.

Slivinski prided himself on being in top physical shape. He thought baring his six-pack abs and sculpted arms showed he was prepared for physically challenging emergencies. When he saw on Facebook that Katherine Kostreva, a New York City-based photographer and writer, had published a calendar featuring the hunks of the New York Fire Department, he contacted her about doing a similar calendar for Philadelphia. Instead, she convinced him to be in her calendar, along with firefighters from Charlotte, N.C.; Chicago, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, St. Louis, San Francisco, San Antonio and Tampa, Fla.

Slivinski had no idea his department might object to his going shirtless for a cause. “My son was naïve,” his mother said. “He thought if he took his shirt off for charity … he would help people and that would be the end of it.”

Son Felt Humiliated, Betrayed by Temporary Suspension

Said his father: “I don’t know if my son knew all the rules about the fire department, but the head of the union said, ‘Yeah, go for it, don’t worry about anything.’”

But after the Philadelphia fire commissioner learned Slivinski had posed without obtaining permission, “that’s when everything started to spiral downward,” his mother said.

He was temporarily suspended from Rescue 1 in April for conduct unbecoming a firefighter and assigned to what his dad described as “one of the slowest stations in the city.”

Although the suspension lasted only days, they seemed like months. “That’s how agonizing it was for our family, how demoralizing, how humiliating,” Gerry Slivinski said.

During that time, photographer Kostreva organized a rally and collected more than 1,000 signatures for a petition requesting Slivinski’s reinstatement. The fire commissioner reprimanded Slivinski May 3 and gave him back his job. But Slivinski never believed the incident was fully behind him.

He repeatedly told his mother, “this is not finished. This is not over,” she said.

City officials still sought to keep Kostreva from using photos that might identify Slivinski as a Philadelphia firefighter and offered to look for someone from another city to take his place in the calendar.

Kostreva, who grew close to Slivinski through nearly daily talks, said that by early June, their conversations “kind of tapered off” and he seemed troubled. She thought his mood sagged further on the antidepressants, so she gave him pep talks as the calendar project progressed. He was excited in a conversation the day before his death, when he offered “to roll 1,000 meatballs to honor the widows and feed them” at a celebratory dinner.

His suicide the next day blindsided her. Even now, her satisfaction at seeing the calendar finished is tempered by “a lot of grief. I feel responsible, too.”

The Slivinskis are getting some help with their grieving from a “wonderful grief counselor,” Gerry Slivinski said. “Husbands and wives grieve in different ways. There’s so much I feel differently than my husband feels. We both have to grieve and respect each other.”

As she wondered aloud what might have happened had her son found a similarly skilled counselor, she expressed slight comfort in knowing he “didn’t take the gun and go out and shoot people. He didn’t hurt anyone else. He took his own pain away.”

She wants his story to end with something good, like getting people to buy the calendar “and support these firefighters in the way they are supposed to be supported,” and seeing people like her son get the help they need. “I don’t want this to happen to anyone else’s child.”

Monday, August 15, 2011

A Louisiana man is accused of decapitating and dismembering his disabled 7-year-old son and leaving the boy’s head near the street so the child’s mother would see it — a killing that brought seasoned police officers to tears, authorities said Monday.

Jeremiah Lee Wright, 30, of Thibodaux has confessed to killing Jori Lirette, Police Chief Scott Silverii said. He said Wright was booked with first-degree murder and was held Monday in lieu of $5 million bond.

Silverii’s spokesman, Detective Ricky Ross, said he does not believe Wright has an attorney.

Silverii said the motive was unclear, though Wright told police “that he’d gotten to the point where he was tired of taking care” of the boy, who had cerebral palsy and heart problems, needed a feeding tube and was in a wheelchair.

“He said when he put his head out by the side of the road it was so the mother would see it when she came by,” Silverii said. He said Wright’s only explanation for doing so was “just that he wanted her to feel stupid when she saw the head.”

The police chief said Jori’s feet and one hand also were cut off, recovered with the body in several white plastic garbage bags.

Police had been called to the house last month when the couple had an argument — possibly about money — though neither person brought charges, Ross said. The police chief said Wright had been arrested a few times previously, though he was never charged with violent crimes. Wright served 10 days for theft in 2005.

Silverii said friends had taken the child’s mother, Jesslyn Lirette, 27, to try to fix her broken-down car on Sunday. Lirette — who lived with Wright but was not married to him — returned to a home blocked with police tape.

When she identified herself, Silverii had Ross, who had been her minister for 12 years and remains a lay pastor, and a captain tell her what had happened to her son, a second-grade student at South Thibodaux Elementary School.

“These are experienced men. They came out of there in tears. Just absolutely in tears,” Silverii said.

Grief counselors from the Lafourche Parish Sheriff’s Office also spent time with her, he said.

The slaying was the first since 2008 in Thibodeaux, which is about a 60-mile drive west of New Orleans.

Silverii said the boy apparently was decapitated over the kitchen sink, which was sent to the Louisiana State Police crime lab along with a box of tools found nearby. An autopsy taking place Monday in Jefferson Parish would identify when the child died and what was used to decapitate and dismember the boy, Silverii said.

New York police are awaiting autopsy results in the death of Zachery Tims, the senior pastor of an Orlando-area megachurch who was found dead in a New York hotel room Friday.

Tims, 42, was found unresponsive Friday about 6 p.m. on the floor of a room in the W Hotel in Times Square, New York Police Department spokesman Sgt. John Bethorn said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Tims was the senior pastor and founder of New Destiny Christian Center, a nondenominational church in Apopka, Florida, about 15 miles northwest of Orlando.

The church declined to comment Monday on news of Tims’ death, saying a public statement would be made at 7 p.m.

Members of the church on Monday were mourning the loss of their pastor.

“I was shocked to hear of Pastor Tims passing. I will miss you and am thanking God for the time you were here. Go rest high on that mountain,” one member posted on the church’s Facebook page Monday.

Wrote another: “Forever grateful to Dr. Tims and NDCC. Our daughter and son in law began their Christian journey with Pastor Tims. On this sad day we want to send our condolences to his family and flock and simply say… Thank you! His life and ministry were not in vain.”

Tims founded the church in 1996, overcoming a youth filled with personal struggles, including attempted murder charges and drug addiction.

He documented his troubles in the 2006 book “It’s Never Too Late,” published by Charisma House.

“We are saddened by the news of Pastor Tims’ untimely death,” the publisher said in a statement. “His ministry impacted many throughout Central Florida as well nationally through television, books and speaking engagements. His personal testimony of redemption became the earmark of his ministry and was continually demonstrated via community outreach, preaching and teaching.”

New Destiny’s first service was held in a hotel room; membership has since swelled to more than 8,000 members, according to the center’s website. With television and radio broadcasts, the center’s site claims the Sunday worship service reaches more than 100 million homes worldwide.

As a major leader in the evangelical movement, Tims’ death reverberated through the Christian community.

“DEEPLY saddened to hear of the passing of Pastor Tims … praying for his family and church,” tweeted Bishop T.D. Jakes, founder and senior pastor of the Dallas-based megachurch The Potter’s House.

The New York Medical Examiner’s office has not released a cause of death, pending autopsy results. Police say there are no current plans for a criminal investigation.

The death toll has risen to five in the stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair in which 45 people were also injured.

The main stage collapsed on a crowd waiting for a Sugarland performance Saturday night at the Indianapolis fair after being blasted by winds as strong as 60 to 70 mph, according to the National Weather Service.

The lead singer of the country band, Jennifer Nettles, expressed her horror in a statement to Associated Press, saying there were “no words to process a moment of this magnitude and gravity.”

Photos: Deadly stage collapse

The victims were identified by the Marion County coroner’s office as Tammy Vandam, 42, of Wanatah; Glenn Goodrich, 49, of Indianapolis; Alina Bigjohny, 23, of Fort Wayne; Christina Santiago, 29, of Chicago; and Nathan Byrd, 51, of Indianapolis, who died overnight.

WRTV Indianapolis reported Sunday that the number of injured had climbed to 45. The fair was shut down Sunday in the aftermath of the accident.

The accident, which occurred at about 9 p.m. Saturday, unfolded in a dramatic scene captured on a YouTube video. The towering stage equipment tumbled forward onto fans against a backdrop of darkened skies, a massive dust storm and gusty winds.

One woman could be heard saying, “Oh my God, oh my God!”

“It was like it was in slow motion,” concertgoer Amy Weathers told the Indianapolis Star. “You couldn’t believe it was actually happening.”

At local hospitals, triage and family reunification rooms were set up. Shortly after the accident, Sugarland said on Twitter: “We are all right. We are praying for our fans, and the people of Indianapolis. We hope you will join us. They need our strength.”

In the chaos afterward, scores of concertgoers rushed to the stage to lift broken scaffolding and equipment off people.

“People put themselves in jeopardy…and it’s gratifying to know that at a moment’s notice people will jump in to help others,” said Indiana State Police Sgt. Rich Myers.

No one was performing at the time of the collapse.The opening act had finished, and the crowd was waiting for Sugarland to take the stage. At the same time, the weather was worsening; there had been heavy rain and winds were picking up. State police were monitoring radar weather reports on their smartphones.

They had just decided to evacuate the grandstands and were putting officials in place to carry out the plan. But it wasn’t fast enough.

Authorities say the bodies of a missing 2-year-old Sacramento girl and her father have been found in the man’s vehicle in El Dorado County.

FBI Special Agent John Cauthen says the bodies of Madeline Samaan-Fay and 49-year-old Mourad “Moni” Samaan were discovered in his green Toyota 4Runner in a rural area near Placerville, about 45 miles northeast of the capital. 

Cauthen says the cause and time of the deaths is not immediately known.

The FBI issued an AMBER alert Friday for the toddler. She was last seen Aug. 7 with her father in a Sacramento grocery store.

Authorities say the girl was taken by her father after her mother was granted custody of the toddler, ending what had been a joint custody arrangement.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 9 are ruled by the first letter of the name.

So, unfortunately,  the number 13 ruled her ages zero to nine.

Veteran Bollywood actor Shammi Kapoor has died in the western Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay) at the age of 79.

Kapoor had been suffering for some time from kidney disease and had been admitted to hospital last week.

He belonged to a famous family of filmmakers and actors, and was a prominent star in 1950s and 1960s.

One of the most popular actors of his generation, Kapoor starred in hits like Junglee, An Evening in Paris, Chinatown and Kashmir Ki Kali.

Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan tweeted that with Kapoor’s death the “flamboyance and joie de vivre of the [film] industry [was] lost”.

Shammi Kapoor acted in more than 100 films. Fans called him the “Elvis Presley of India” for his frenetic and nifty dancing.

He developed a style of his own and moviegoers flocked to the theatres just to see Shammi Kapoor’s antics and mannerisms.

With his infectious on-screen persona and energy, Shammi Kapoor was Bollywood’s first real star, say correspondents.

‘Yahoo!’

The actor was also a keen internet buff and amongst the first Indians to have a website of his own.

When Yahoo opened its office in Mumbai several years ago he was invited by its co-founder Jerry Yang.

At the launch, Kapoor was pleasantly surprised to hear the band playing his Yahoo song from the film Junglee [or Wild], made famous years before the internet existed, and so called for his famous cry of “Yahoo!”.

Later, Mr Yang told him how inspired he was by the Yahoo song and the way the actor had used the word in his inimitable style in so many of his films.

“It was all very flattering. Many of my relatives still call up and ask whether I own Yahoo,” he told the BBC in an interview.

Megan M. McClung

August 13, 2011    11:04 am

She was killed in Iraq in 2006 but the memory of this energetic Marine from Orange County continues to be honored and to inspire other U.S. military personnel deployed to war zones.

In Afghanistan this week, more than 500 Marines and other troops participated in a 5-kilometer run to honor the life and service of Major Megan McClung.

The run honoring McClung is an annual event and has been held in Iraq, at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Wash., and now at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan’s Helmand province.

“People around the world are running to honor her memory,” said Navy Lt. Cmdr. Rachel Oden, who graduated with McClung from the Naval Academy in 1995.

Born in Hawaii, McClung grew up in Orange County and graduated from Mission Viejo High School in 1990.

She was killed by a roadside bomb blast in Ramadi on Dec. 6, 2006, while serving as a public affairs officer helping journalists to understand the fight in Anbar province. She wanted the world to know that Anbar, once considered a lost cause for the U.S., was changing due to the work of the Marine Corps, U.S. Army and Sunni sheiks.

In the recently published “A Soldier’s Dream: Captain Travis Patriquin and the Awakening of Iraq,” author William Doyle quotes a Marine lieutenant colonel that McClung was “a fireball… she could charm anybody out of their socks.”

Another officer says of McClung, “She could not simply enter a room. She bounced and bounded in, ready to meet anyone and anything with an optimistic tenacity that intimidated some, but inspired many.”

She was a runner and competed in triathlons. She was 34 when she died – the first female Marine officer to be killed in Iraq. While deployed, she organized a variant of the Marine Corps Marathon as a morale booster for troops.

At the run this week in Camp Leatherneck, dozens of Marines knew McClung. Many more had heard of her.

“To be able to say I knew her, and to be here doing something to honor her memory and all the good things she did, is an honor,” said Oden.

After a morning practice session Friday, Benjamin Ola and four of his teammates on Travis High School’s junior varsity football team decided to cool off in the murky waters of the Brazos River.

Hours later, authorities fished the body of the 17-year-old student from the river bottom while his grief-stricken father wondered how such a thing could have happened to his strong, athletic son.

“Ben is 6-4, a lifeguard and a very good swimmer,” said Isaac Ola, who emigrated from Nigeria to Fort Bend County with his wife and two sons in 2004. “I wouldn’t have expected him to go to that kind of river to swim.”

Authorities said Ola and his friends went to the river to cool off after practice and were clinging to a log near the river’s edge. A strong current dislodged the log, separating the group and sending them farther down the river, said Master Sgt. Lowell Neinast of the Richmond Police Department.

The other teens told police the last time they saw Ola, shortly before 10 a.m., he appeared to be swimming well. When he took a breath and went under, they had no idea he was having trouble, they told police. The boy’s body was found Friday afternoon near the spot where his teammates last saw him.

“It’s extremely hot, and the kids had just got out of football practice out here to cool off,” Neinast said. “I can see him cramping up very easily.”

Ola’s teammates managed to make it out. The water, murky with zero visibility, is 6 to 15 feet deep with a strong current, Neinast said.

Neinast said the river is on a nature reserve where kids often come to hike and play. He said the river is blocked off by a wire cable to discourage swimming because of the treacherous conditions.

“There is a barrier to stop people from going over,” Neinast said. “But we can’t be here for 24 hours.”

About a dozen of Ola’s family members and friends converged on the river Friday afternoon. Most were too emotional to speak.

Isaac Ola said Benjamin was very intelligent and was looking forward to the new school year. He aspired to be a doctor.

At the high school, the task of informing the team that Ola was missing and perhaps drowned fell to Travis head football coach Randy Cunningham. After breaking the news at a 2 p.m. meeting in the weight room, Cunningham led the team in prayer.

After the meeting, the players walked back to their cars, many of them in tears.

“This is just devastating news for us,” said Victoria Smith, who said her son and Ola were best friends. She described him as a good young man who never got into trouble. She said he hoped to earn a college football scholarship.

All student activities at Travis High School were canceled for the weekend. Counselors and staff planned to be available at the Travis Field House until 1 p.m. on Saturday.

“It is a tragedy, when school is about to start, and football season is right around the corner,” Neinast said. “I know they were getting excited about football.”

Rocker Jani Lane has passed away at the age of 47. The former Warrant lead singer, who wrote the ’80s glam rock band’s hits “Cherry Pie” and “I Saw Red”, was found dead at a hotel in Los Angeles on Thursday evening, August 11, TMZ reported.

His body was discovered at the Comfort Inn hotel in Woodland Hills, California. No official cause of death has been released, but he did have a history of alcohol abuse. In 2010, he was ordered to serve 120 days in jail after he was being arrested for DUI for the second time in two years.

Lane, whose real name is John Kennedy Oswald, has separated and reunited with Warrant on several occasions. He temporarily left the band in 1992, before returning in 1994. He left again in January 2004, only to return for a short while in 2008.

The rocker has released one solo album titled “Back Down to One”. He made an appearance on VH1′s “Celebrity Fit Club” in 2005, and served as a stand-in lead singer for Great White on their tour in the summer of 2010.

11:36am UK, Thursday August 11, 2011

Haroon Jahan, 21, died alongside two brothers after being hit by a car on Dudley Road in the Winson Green area of Birmingham in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

The two other victims have been named locally as Shezad Ali and Abdul Musavir.

Haroon’s father, Tariq, said: “Last night we lost three cherished members of our community.

“They were taken from us in a way that no father, mother, sister or brother should have to endure.

“Today we stand here to plead with all the youth to remain calm (and) for our communities to stand united. This is not a race issue.

“Blacks, Asians, whites – we all live in the same community. Why do we have to kill each other?

“I lost my son. Step forward if you want to lose your sons. Otherwise, calm down and go home.”

He also called for witnesses and said people should have faith in the police.

But after he spoke, some tension erupted and onlookers began shouting, upset about what had happened in the area.

Mr Jahan climbed onto a van and called for order. “Have some respect,” he said. “I have lost a son. Don’t kick off again.”

The deaths occured in the same area that suffered riots involving clashes between groups of Asian and black youths in 2005.

And Dr Derrick Campbell, a community leader in the affected area of Birmingham and chief executive of Race Equality Sandwell, said it was important those tensions were not reignited by recent events.

“We don’t want this to be seen as a race thing,” he said.

“The different communities here have always stood together and will continue to do so.

“We have recognised that it could easily tip in the direction of a racial, but we are determined to ensure that doesn’t happen.

“There have certainly been no reprisals so far and we hope that remains the case.”

Prime Minister David Cameron described the apparent hit-and-run killings as a “truly dreadful incident” and offered his condolences to their families.

Mr Jahan earlier described the moments the tragedy unfolded and said his son was “trying to help the community”.

“I heard a thud, ran round and saw three people on the ground,” he said.

“My instinct was to help the three people. I did not know who they were, who had been injured.

“I helped the first man and somebody told me my son was lying behind me so I started CPR on my own son.

“My face was covered in blood, my hands were covered in blood.”

Resident Mohammed Abdullah was driving down the street when the incident happened.

“I saw two cars hit a number of people, who flew high up in the air,” he said.

“I was driving directly behind them – I saw a silhouette of two bodies going up in the air and landing down.”

At a news conference, Chief Constable of West Midlands Police Chris Sims said one man had been arrested for murder “because the information we have would support that a car was deliberately driven”.

Mr Sims appealed for more information from the public. He said he was did not want a single incident to lead to “distrust” and “violence” between different communities.

Authorities are investigating as a suicide the death of a Colorado man who fell from the top floor of the Galleria mall Tuesday.

Crisan Hindorean, 44, jumped from the third floor of the Far North Dallas shopping mall to the ice skating rink about 50 feet below, narrowly missing a mall employee, police said.

Emergency medical personnel found Hindorean unresponsive on the ice shortly after 2:30 p.m., Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.

They performed CPR and took him to Medical City Dallas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Dallas police Sgt. M.E. Felini said Hindorean had suffered from depression.

The Boulder man had been shopping with his girlfriend and her daughter but wasn’t with them when the incident happened.

Galleria officials closed the rink after the fall, but the rest of the mall remained open.

A U.S. Navy SEAL from South Sioux City was among the 30 American troops killed when a military helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan, family members said.

Sengchanh Douangdara told the Sioux City Journal that military officials notified her of her son’s death on Saturday. The newspaper said Monday that Master at Arms, Class 1 John Douangdara, 26, was a lead dog handler for the elite unit.

“I know he loved his job, it was a job he chose,” his mother said.

Douangdara, a 2003 graduate of South Sioux City High School, was aboard a Chinook helicopter that the military said was shot down by a rocket-propelled grenade in eastern Afghanistan.

“We are proud Johnny fought for the country that embraced our family and gave us the opportunity to reach for the American dream,” said Chan Follen, the oldest of five children in the family, which came to the United States from Laos three decades ago.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name. 

John Douangdara

10 (J is the 10th letter of the alphabet) + 15 (o is the 15th letter of the alphabet) + 8 (h is the 8th letter of the alphabet) = 33

So from ages zero to twenty-seven he had the number 33 going on.

33 = Brave.  Courageous.  Big-hearted.

Although the Pentagon still has not disclosed the names of those killed in the downing of a Chinook helicopter Saturday, their identities slowly are becoming known. The following five men were all Navy SEALs, all based in Virginia Beach.

LOU LANGLAIS

Those who attended church with Lou Langlais said the husband and father of two young boys went quietly about his business.

But on April 1, 1997, Langlais was thrust into the national spotlight. The then-30-year-old SEAL made highlight reels that evening after attempting to parachute into Pro Player Stadium dressed as the Florida Marlins mascot, Billy the Marlin.

A wind gust tore the costume’s grinning marlin head off at about 6,000 feet, according to news reports. The quick-thinking SEAL altered his descent to land outside the stadium while another Billy took his place inside the ballpark.

Years later, friends loved to tell the story. But it’s likely Langlais will be better remembered for the love he showed for his family and community, said pastor Ira Townsend of Atlantic Shores Baptist Church. Kevin Houston, another SEAL killed last week, also attended the church in Virginia Beach.

“These men are heroes,” Townsend said. “We’re filled with pride about the role they were playing. They hoped they would not have to give their life, but they were very willing to do so out of love for their country.”

August 09, 2011, 07:57 AM

The U.S. military is investigating the cause of Saturday’s helicopter crash in Afghanistan which reportedly killed an eastern Minnesota man.

According to reports, family members say 24-year old Nick Spehar of Chisago City was killed when the Chinook helicopter went down.

In all, 30 troops died in the deadliest incident since the start of the Afghan war. Flags now stand in the front yard of Spehar’s mother to honor her son and the others. The Taliban has claimed responsibility for shooting down the helicopter but the Department of Defense has not yet confirmed that.

Spehar was a Navy SEAL. A special unit of the Seals killed terrorist Osama Bin Laden in early May.

PHOTO: Sheila Decoster

August 9, 2011

A woman who died after falling face-first into a recycling bin and wasn’t noticed until her husband came from work had gotten stuck in a position in which she couldn’t breathe, a coroner said.

Sheila Decoster, 62, was likely inside the bin for several hours before she was found Friday, said Lucas County Deputy Coroner Diane Barnett. The woman’s husband saw her legs sticking out of the 64-gallon container that sits alongside their porch.

“I just happened to look to the left and, honestly, thought it was a dummy,” Richard Decoster told The Blade newspaper of Toledo (http://bit.ly/oucrqD). “I shook her leg and called her name, and I knew she was gone.”

The couple, married for 43 years, kept their recycling and trash bins next to their porch, which does not have a railing. Investigators said it looked like Sheila Decoster was standing on her porch when she leaned over, lifted the lid on the bin and fell inside.

Decoster died from positional asphyxia, which means she couldn’t breathe because of the way she stuck, Barnett said.

Her husband said she had several medical issues, including dizzy spells and an aneurism on her brain, which could explain why she fell. She also had back problems and a recent knee-replacement surgery.

There were many complaints about the large recycling bins when they were distributed two years ago. Residents said they were too big and difficult to move, especially for older and disabled people.

“It’s tragic, but I think it’s definitely an extreme example,” said city spokeswoman Jen Sorgenfrei.

11:57 AM, August 8, 2011

A 40-year-old Chicago financial whiz became the second person to die from an exhausting city triathlon, officials said today.

Tragic mom-of-three and investment honcho Amy Martich of suburban Elmhurst, Ill., went into cardiac arrest twice after Sunday’s early-morning swim in the Hudson River, said Bill Burke, director of the well-known Nautica New York City Triathlon.

She had been brought in critical condition to Roosevelt Hospital and succumbed today.

Organizers said Martich — a former high-school swimmer and a vice president for Janus Capital Group, one of the race’s sponsors — was part of a team of three coworkers who were each to take a leg in the punishing race.

Martich was to swim the roughly one-mile kick-off, with another handling the 15-mile bike leg and the third the 6-mile run.

Martich had finished about half her race when she got into trouble, organizers said.

“The reports from swimmers near her was that they were stroking along, and she was stroking along, then a moment later, she wasn’t,” Burke told the Chicago Tribune.

A race worker in a kayak rushed over to help bring her to shore, he said.

Her devastated dad told The Post that she had no known medical problems.

“It was kind of a challenge — she was a high-school swimmer, and this was a chance to get back and do something she did years ago,” said Martich’s stricken dad, Frederic McCullough, 68.

“It’s got to be a freak accident. We’re still waiting for the medical examiner to tell us what happened.”

The dad said Martich leaves behind a husband and three young children, two boys and a girl, all 10 and under.

“She was a beautiful person…was very friendly, very willing to help people, always on the go, a loving mother, a loving wife, a loving daughter,” he said sadly.

A day earlier, race participant Michael Kudryk, 64, of Freehold, NJ, also died from an apparent heart attack after being pulled unconscious from the Hudson.

In 2008, a 32-year-old Argentinian competitor died as well during the swimming portion of the race.

Authorities said 26 participants in Sunday’s needed assistance for minor injuries and pain during the swim.

Mayor Bloomberg, asked whether the city was looking into the athletes’ deaths, responded: “We can’t supervise everything. If people want to go and have a race, they can go and have a race.

“We don’t have the money— nor is it appropriate I think — for New York City to go out and tell people whether they can test themselves physically.”

Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer called on race organizers to examine their safety protocol.

He noted that race officials called the weather “optimal,” even though there were strong currents, choppy water and temps topping 90 degrees.

Jason Workman

Sunday, Aug. 7, 2011 8:07 p.m. MDT

Jason Workman knew since he was a young boy that he wanted to be a Navy SEAL.

He knew the odds of making the elite fighting force were slim. Workman not only accomplished his goal, but he also became a member of the elite Navy SEAL Team 6.

Saturday, Petty Officer First Class Jason Workman, 32, was among the 31 Americans killed, including 22 members of SEAL Team 6, when their helicopter was shot down by insurgents in Afghanistan.

Members of the SEAL Team 6 were responsible for killing Osama bin Laden.

Sunday, the small southern Utah town of Blanding, where flags flew at half staff, was in mourning over the loss of their hometown hero. The town of about 3,000 people has already lost two other servicemen in the war.

“This community loved what this young man was doing for us, as well as our other soldiers are doing for us,” said Blanding Mayor Toni Turk.

Workman was a man that even if residents hadn’t personally met, they were proud to call him one of their own.

“We are so proud of someone like Jason being from a small town to become an elite special forces soldier,” said his childhood friend Tate Bennett.

Workman was a star athlete in Blanding, playing high school football, baseball and basketball, reaching All-State status in at least two of those sports. He was also a strong swimmer and competed in triathlons, Bennett said.

But what made Workman a hero to many, Bennett said, was how well-rounded he was.

“He was not only real good athlete and real popular kid, but he was pretty academic. He took a lot of AP classes. He was just really, really well-rounded. He was very personable, very out going.”

“He would do anything to help the guy across the table from him,” said family friend Rick Eldredge. “He would give you the shirt off his back. He was just willing to do anything for anybody and he’s proven by giving his life to this country.”

Workman was the youngest of four brothers. Bennett remembered when Workman’s older brother graduated from West Point when he was about 14, he was adamant even then that he was going to grow up to become a Navy SEAL.

The other time he remembers Workman being vocal about his conviction to be a SEAL was right after the Sept. 11 attack.

After going on a LDS mission to Brazil (which he finished in Philadelphia due to illness) he went to Southern Utah University and later enlisted with the U.S. Navy.

“He was doing it for sole purpose of becoming a SEAL,” Bennett said Workman told him.

Bennett said that Workman knew the odds of becoming a Navy SEAL were slim. But he was determined to make it.

“Not making it just wasn’t an option,” Workman said. “He didn’t become a Navy SEAL by chance. He knew that’s what he wanted at a young age and made it happen.”

Bennett recalled Workman always had “some crazy story” about the kind of training SEAL prospects were put through.

Once he became a SEAL, Bennett said it was his understanding that Workman’s speciality was in explosives.

But he admitted he didn’t even know Workman was part of the Team 6 until recently.

Even if Workman had not accomplished his goal of becoming a Navy SEAL, Bennett said he “would have been a hero for somebody in some other aspect, like a firefighter or law enforcement.”

Bennett believes that Workman thought his purpose in life was to serve and help others. He was big, strong and smart and, “recognized that his gift was best used in helping other people.”

Workman returned to his hometown nine months ago to train area police and deputies, and was planning to return in December to do some more training

Workman is survived by his wife and 21-month-old son who live in Virginia.

The Workman family released a statement thanking everyone for their prayers and support.

“Jason had been in the service for almost 8 years. He loved his job and was great at it. Jason was the Best of the Best. Jason was admired by so many and will be dearly missed,” the family said in their prepared statement.

The family said Workman would be buried later this week in Arlington National Cemetery.

04:32 p.m., Monday, August 8, 2011

Brian Bill, a Stamford native who played hockey and soccer at Trinity Catholic in the late 1990s, was killed this weekend when the U.S. helicopter he was traveling in was shot down near Kabul, Afghanistan.

Bill, 31, a Navy SEAL, graduated from Trinity in 1997 and was an athlete and an Eagle scout.

Bill’s mother and stepfather, Patricia and Michael Parry, and his father, Scott Bill, issued a written statement thanking the SEALs and members of the Stamford community for their support.

“We are heartbroken in our loss,” they said. “Brian was a remarkably gifted, thoughtful and compassionate young man. We are incredibly proud of him. He was a treasured son, grandson, brother, uncle and cousin. He loved life. He loved a challenge. And he was passionate about being a SEAL.”

Thirty Americans and eight Afghans were killed when a rocket propelled grenade struck the helicopter they were flying in, making it the deadliest single loss of U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan.

On Monday afternoon Gov. Dannel P. Malloy released this statement:

“While I cannot independently confirm the death of U.S. Navy SEAL Brian Bill from my hometown of Stamford, I understand that his family has been notified and released their own statement about him. My wife, Cathy, and I extend our condolences to his family, and our thoughts and prayers go out to them at this difficult time.”

Brian Bill was interested in attending graduate school and becoming an astronaut upon completing his military service, his family said.

“Already an accomplished mountaineer, skier, pilot, and triathlete, he wanted to complete the seven summits,” they said. “He wanted to return to graduate school. He wanted to become an astronaut. He was the best, and we will miss him.”

Trinity Catholic boys soccer coach Bob Pepi said it was apparent early on that Bill was well suited for public service.

“The thing I remember most about him is that he was a serious kid who had a maturity about him,” Pepi said. “His mind was preparing him for something else. He was a little bit reserved and a little bit different, but not in a bad way. It doesn’t surprise me that he chose the path that he did.”

Patrick Sasser, a Stamford firefighter who attained Eagle Scout rank with Bill in Troop 11, said he found out about Bill’s death Sunday night, when he got a phone call from a friend in the Air Force in Arizona.

“Brian was just a great guy,” Sasser said. “He loved the outdoors and camping. He was a great all-around guy. In high school, he wanted to be in the military. Especially, he wanted to be a SEAL.”

Bill, who was going to be celebrating his 32nd birthday on Aug. 23, was 2001 graduate of Norwich University in Vermont and a graduate of Coronado Naval Amphibious Base in San Diego and the Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base in Virginia Beach, Va. Both bases are Navy SEAL training centers.

His scoutmaster at the time he became an Eagle Scout was choked up as he talked about Bill.

“Brian was a special young man. When we went backpacking he could carry more weight further and faster than any other scout I have worked with,” said David Welton, Troop 11 assistant scoutmaster.

Welton said Bill talked to him about becoming a SEAL and he was eager to take on the challenge as he was leaving high school.

“There was something very special about Brian and you knew that. He was not like the other kids playing video games and talking about girls. Brian was all about being ambitious. He played hard and was serious about life,” Welton said.

During middle and high school, Bill worked at the Springdale Florist, something owner Mike Doyle remembers vividly.

“It is a shock to all of us,” Doyle said. “Brian had a maturity about him when he was here and an ability that a lot of young people his age didn’t have. He had the ability to get the job done and take on responsibility. He was a loving, happy-go-lucky young man. His parents did a marvelous job raising him,” Doyle said.

Trinity Catholic athletic director Tracy Nichols said Bill was “a wonderful kid.”

“What might have surprised me most is he was so nice you wouldn’t think he would be the kind of kid to be doing SEALs,” Nichols said. “He spent a lot of time in the weight room. He was lifting all the time. He had a tremendous work ethic.”

Trinity Catholic Assistant Principal for Student Affairs Diane Warzoha said she remembered Bill from a Spanish she taught and attended his Eagle Scout Court of Honor.

Warzoha said Bill was always very goal oriented and went along in his quiet way to achieve them.

“Brian always wanted to make a difference for other people and we saw that at school. He was so devoted to the people he cared about — his family, classmates and country,” she said. “It doesn’t surprise any of us that Brian went on to become one of the best. We are so very proud of him and honored to have him as part of the family here at Trinity Catholic.”

Community members said Sunday they are grieving over word that a Jacksonville native was among those killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.

Navy SEAL Chris Campbell, 36, perished Saturday when a helicopter was shot down over eastern Afghanistan.

Campbell’s death was confirmed Sunday by his parents Larry and Diane Campbell.

Thirty American troops and seven Afghan commandos were killed, according to U.S. officials. Among the troops were 22 SEALS, as well as three Air Force combat controllers, a dog handler, and his dog. The SEALS belonged to SEAL Team 6, the same elite unit that was responsible for killing Osama bin Laden in a May raid in Pakistan, though none of the troops who perished Saturday had participated in the raid.

From their Jacksonville home, Larry and Diane Campbell told The Daily News that Campbell, a 1993 White Oak High School graduate, was among those killed in the crash.

“We are not talking to the media,” said Diane Campbell, who added she was not sure of her son’s rank. “We ask that people pray for us; we’ll be all right.”

Those in the community who knew Chris Campbell expressed disbelief and sadness.

Jacksonville resident Steven Carter, an old friend of the family, said he knew the Navy SEAL as a child.

“He was a good kid,” he said. “When I found out he joined the Navy, I was surprised, and when I found out he was a SEAL I was quite surprised.”

Carter expressed sympathy for the family as they grieved.

Former county commissioner Martin Aragona Jr., who graduated from White Oak High School in 1987, said he and Campbell had a number of friends in common and both played on the school football team.

“I was just sad to hear through some of our mutual friends that he had passed away,” Aragona said. “The whole White Oak community and Onslow County as well as the nation was saddened to hear what happened in Afghanistan.”

The crash is reported to be by far the deadliest single loss for American forces in the decade-old war.

Killer: Michael Hance is the man police say shot his longtime girlfriend before killing seven people and dying in a shootout with police

12:54 p.m. EDT, August 8, 2011

Authorities, during a news conference Monday afternoon, identified the gunman at the center of a shooting rampage in Copley that resulted in eight deaths.

Copley Police say the shooter was Michael E. Hance, 51. Believed responsible for seven deaths, Hance was shot and killed after he opened fire on officers.

On the day after the deadly rampage, shocked residents were still trying to understand how and why such a tragedy occurred in their quiet, seemingly safe suburban neighborhood.

Fox 8′s Stacey Frey and Todd Meany report that an argument between Hance and his girlfriend — Rebecca K. Dieter, 49 — sparked the violence, but exact circumstances behind a motive are not yet clear.

Copley Police Chief Michael Mier said Hance opened fire just before 11 a.m. Sunday during an argument inside a home in the 2300 block of Goodenough Avenue. Several people were allegedly present when the incident occurred. Police believe Hance shot Dieter at that residence before going next door and shooting her brother along with four other people.

Dieter survived the shooting. She was transported to an area hospital, where she remains in the Intensive Care Unit.

Four of the five people killed were identified by authorities. They are: Copley High School student Autumn M. Johnson, 16; her father Bryan Johnson, 44; her grandmother Gudrun Johnson, 64; and her grandfather Russell Johnson, 67. The fifth fatal victim was another 16-year-old Copley High student whose identity is still being withheld.

Witnesses tell Fox 8 News that the gunman then began a search for those who had gotten away after the initial gunfire.

Police say he chased two victims through backyards before shooting one of them outside of a home on nearby Schocalog Road. Two other people that had run from him sought safety in another house on Schocalog, but it did not last. Hance entered that home and gunned down his seventh and final fatal victim.

The final two fatal victims were identified as 11-year-old Scott Dieter and his father, 51-year-old Craig Dieter.

“A neighbor of mine sat there riding a motorcycle and seen the guy chasing the little kid with the gun, shooting and trying to kill him,” said neighbor Bob McCrady.

Residents were horrified to learn that the boy and his father were eventually killed by Hance.

After exiting the home, the gunman shot at a Copley officer and a private citizen. It was there, police say, that both men returned fire and fatally shot Hance. Officials say the citizen was a former police officer. However, the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed on Monday that the bullet which killed Hance came from the current officer’s weapon.

Chief Mier said, in all, eight people were shot by Hance, seven of which died at the scenes. The bodies of the shooting victims were found in four different locations along the two streets.

Brenda McCrady told Fox 8 News that she was sitting in her Schocalog Road home when a hysterical woman came banging at her door.

“Somebody knocked on my door, and a woman was on my porch — hiding on my porch. I went out the door, and she ran in the house and told me that somebody had shot her husband point-blank in the head,” McCrady said. “(The woman) said, ‘There’s a lot of people shot,’ and she started screaming, ‘My son, my son, my 11-year-old son.’ (The woman’s son) went the opposite direction she went, and she was looking for, wanting her son, but she said, ‘Oh, my God. I’m a widow.’” McCrady recalled.

A prayer vigil for the victims was held Sunday evening at the Copley Community Park. Community members cried and embraced at the candlelight event, which about 200 people attended.

The Copley Police Department was assisted in the investigation by the Akron Police Department, the Fairlawn Police Department, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office and the Summit County Prosecutor’s Office.

Authorities are asking people to avoid the area near the shootings. Entrances into the neighborhood have been blocked off.

August 7, 2011

Mark Lawrence stepped out of his home office and went downstairs to tell his next patient he needed a few minutes to finish an earlier appointment. As he headed back up the stairs, Barbara Newman leveled a gun at her longtime psychiatrist and shot at him repeatedly. He fell, dead.

Newman stepped out on the porch, turned the gun on herself and fired again.

It was a mysterious end to the lives of two highly educated, accomplished scientists, both of whom had spent their lives helping others — she by curing diseases of the body, he by curing diseases of the mind.

Interviews with family members, friends and colleagues of Newman, 62, and Lawrence, 71, reveal them as an unlikely pair to be entwined in such a tragedy. Both were remembered separately as caring, dedicated professionals, Newman an immunologist and Lawrence a psychiatrist. Both were athletic and believed in a holistic approach to well-being.

More important, both told people that they thought Newman had been headed in the right direction as she battled recent health problems and long-standing psychological issues.

But on July 23, Newman’s new-age principles gave way to unexpected violence at Lawrence’s McLean home as she took her life and that of the one person who best understood the troubles that plagued her.

Lawrence had discussed Newman’s apparent paranoia with at least two colleagues — telling one that she had begun blaming him for all her problems. Still, no one thought it would end the way it did.

“Periodically, he’s had patients who have been problematic with their boundaries,” said Lawrence’s daughter, Katherine. “He’s been worried on some occasions, but he never feared for his life. . . . My dad actually thought she was on the upswing. He hadn’t anticipated she was getting worse.”

Researchers who have studied attacks against mental health professionals said patients who lash out tend to have a history of recent, repetitive criminal behavior or substance abuse. Newman had no criminal record, and friends were unaware of any substance abuse problems. For patients like her, researchers said, such attacks often are triggered by a stressful event, such as a loss of a loved one or a foreclosure.

If Newman had such a stressor, those closest to her did not know.

“I can’t imagine that she would have ever handled any of her problems in this way,” said Lisa Boyd, a friend who worked with Newman at the National Institutes of Health. “She valued life.”

Barbara Ann Newman grew up on Long Island and graduated from a top public high school. She went on to Smith College, earning a degree in psychology, and received a PhD in immunology from Columbia University.

During her college years, friends said, Newman’s father died within a week of learning he had cancer. His death affected her deeply, they said.

“He was a very strong figure in her life,” Boyd said. “I think there were things related to that that she struggled with.”

Newman’s family members declined to comment for this article.

Through her struggles, Newman propelled herself into the high-pressure world of immunogenetics. In 1986, she started as a postdoctorate fellow at the NIH, studying the genetics of the immune system.

“She was an excellent scientist and a very competent and versatile person,” said Rose Mage, who worked with Newman for years at the NIH.

Mage, like others close to Newman, knew she had been seeing the same therapist for a long time, but Newman didn’t share much. “All I knew was that she saw him frequently, and obviously they respected each other.”

In the early ’90s, Newman told colleagues that she was seeking a path that would allow her to help others more directly. Eventually, friends said, she began to study social work.

Newman immersed herself in the world of new-age healing, yoga and what she termed “mindful health,” a merging of therapy and physical exercise. Friends said she started a business, and records indicate that about 1999 to 2001, she sublet space in a McLean office suite where Lawrence worked. It was not clear when she became his patient.

In April 2001, Newman’s brother, Stephen, 59, died of a stroke. She had a difficult time coping, friends said, although she had not been very close to her family.

Never married and with no children, Newman sought community in a neighborhood in Vienna where people rely on each other for support and sometimes share meals. She invited friends to pick peaches in the neighboring farm and stayed active, playing tennis, swimming and traveling to St. John in the Caribbean for an annual well-being conference.

Newman returned to the NIH in September 2001, again in the immunology lab. But she resigned in early 2007, just after her mother died.

Again, she delved deeply into yoga and alternative therapies. In mid-2007, Newman began visiting a new Great Falls yoga studio. There, she met Tom Acklin, a former neurologist who was a partner and manager there.

“I was going from science to spirit, and I felt she was doing the same,” Acklin said. “She was a journeyer in life.”

But the ensuing years, friends and colleagues said, were difficult for Newman. Health problems prevented her from joining in many of her usual activities, leaving her largely homebound. She was seeing many doctors, including Lawrence.

‘Immediately at ease’

Mark Allen Lawrence was raised in Gary, Ind., and studied history at Amherst College. He went on to Harvard Medical School and was a student there when he met his wife, Karen.

The couple married and moved to the Washington area in 1969 when he was hired at the National Institute of Mental Health. They eventually settled with their young daughter, Katherine, on Tebbs Lane in McLean, where Lawrence started his private practice.

Katherine Lawrence remembers that her father, who worked in an office connected to the family’s home by a breezeway, would take time between patients to help her with her homework. He had a knack for numbers, and, in the days before barcode scanners, would challenge himself to tally grocery prices before the cashier could finish.

When Katherine was about 8, Lawrence attended a workshop in New York on hypnosis, which he began to incorporate into his therapy. He once hypnotized Katherine to help her find a misplaced passport, she said.

As Lawrence grew his private practice, he also served on the psychiatric faculty of Georgetown University Medical School and St. Elizabeths Hospital.

In 1984, he co-founded the Center for Healing and Imagery and taught workshops on using imagery in therapy. Lawrence also did character analyses of world leaders for the CIA, his daughter said. The CIA said he did work for the agency in the 1970s and ’80s.

Since Lawrence’s death, colleagues and former patients have shared stories about his skill and warmth with his family.

“I think the one bright spot in all of this horribleness is, I don’t think I would have known how much he was appreciated, how much of an impact he’s had in this community,” said Katherine Lawrence, a researcher at the University of Michigan.

A psychiatric clinical nurse specialist who attended his seminars remembered feeling frazzled after taking wrong turns on her way to their first meeting.

“I was nervous. I was embarrassed. The clock was ticking. But when I called to say I was lost, he reassured me all the way to his office and put me immediately at ease when I walked in the door,” Peggy Brennan said. “And that’s how you always felt with him.”

In 2005, Lawrence received a diagnosis of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He beat the cancer that year and, within months, returned to playing tennis. He dabbled in Pilates and started water-skiing once a week.

About four years ago, Katherine Lawrence and her father began co-writing a book about therapy. She said she plans to publish it in his name with help from his colleagues.

‘She felt better’

One afternoon this summer, Newman met up with a friend at the Old Brogue Irish pub in Great Falls. She had just returned from a trip to Costa Rica.

“She said she felt better than she had felt in years, going back to her 20s and 30s,” said the friend, Lisa Boyd. “It was one of the most upbeat, wonderful conversations I had with her in a long time. There were things she struggled with, obviously, but she was always working through them, always talking through things.”

What happened in the next weeks is unclear. Fairfax County police declined to discuss a possible motive. Lawrence’s family said he did not own a weapon, indicating that Newman brought it to her appointment.

On July 22, Lawrence told a longtime friend and colleague, Melvin Stern, over lunch about a patient who was growing increasingly paranoid.

Lawrence left that lunch thinking he could help her get better.

“He really believed in everybody’s capacity to heal,” said Susan Drobis, a clinical social worker who knew Lawrence.

Shortly after 4 p.m. the next day, Lawrence and Newman were dead.

Francesco Quinn, 48, the actor son of movie legend Anthony Quinn whose own journeyman career began with a supporting role in the Oscar-winning film “Platoon,” died Friday in Malibu, his agent confirmed in a statement. The cause has not been determined, but Quinn was believed to have died of a heart attack.

[Updated at 2:10 p.m. Aug. 7: Sheriff's deputies responded to a "person down" about 5 p.m. Friday in the 21000 block of Rambla Vista in Malibu.

Quinn was walking home from a store at the bottom of a hill below his home with his son when he collapsed, said Lt. James Royal of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Malibu-Lost Hills station.

One of Quinn’s sons went for help and Quinn’s wife and a neighbor called 911 and tried unsuccessfully to revive him.

Paramedics arrived and took him to Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.]

Besides “Platoon,” Oliver Stone’s 1986 Vietnam War drama, Quinn appeared in more than a dozen other films including “Tonto Woman,” an Academy Award nominee in 2008 for best live-action short.

He had recurring roles in such television series as “JAG,” “24″ and “The Shield,” and portrayed Tomas del Cerro on the soap opera “The Young and the Restless” from 1999 to 2001.

He also played the young Santiago in a TV movie version of Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea” that starred his father as the title character.

One of a reported 13 children of the Oscar-winning actor best known for his title role in “Zorba the Greek,” Francesco Quinn was born in Rome in 1963. His mother, Iolanda Addolori, was an Italian wardrobe assistant whom his father met on the set of the 1962 film “Barabbas” and later married.

Francesco Quinn’s survivors include his wife, Valentina Castellini-Quinn, and three children, according to his agent, Arlene Thornton.

His father died in 2001.

from:  http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/08/actor-francesco-quinn-son-of-anthony-quinn-dies-in-malibu.html

—————————————————————————————–

Francesco Daniele Quinn was born on March 22nd, 1963 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francesco_Quinn

March 22nd, 1963

3 + 22 +1+9+6+3 = 44 = his life lesson = what he was here to learn = Self-awareness.  Introspection.  Being in touch with himself.

————————————————————————————–

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the 4th, 5th and 6th letters of the name and the day of birth.

Francesco Daniele Quinn      March 22nd, 1963

14 (n is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 3 (c is the 3rd letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) + 22 (born on the 22nd on the month) = 44

So from ages twenty-seven to fifty-four he had the number 44 going on.

44 = Self-awareness. Introspection. Being in touch with himself.

[When his number (44 (3 + 22 +1+9+6+3 = 44 = his life lesson number)) came up, that's when he got to live/experience what he was here to live/experience.  So this was his time.]

August 7, 2011   6:58 p.m.

As a captain in the Marine Corps Reserves, Jeremy Henwood deployed to one of the most dangerous regions in Afghanistan, where Taliban fighters use roadside bombs and snipers to kill or maim as many American troops as possible.Dozens of Marines were killed and hundreds were wounded, some grievously, during his tour.But Henwood, 36, returned home in May without a scratch and was proud of his yearlong deployment. He was equally pleased to get back to the San Diego Police Department, which assigned him to patrol in City Heights, an up-and-coming blue-collar neighborhood that, like much of San Diego, is enjoying a sharp decrease in crime.His tour of duty on a relatively tranquil home front came to a tragic end early Sunday, when he died of wounds from a point-blank shotgun blast the day before.

Police Chief Bill Lansdowne, a cop for four decades, had trouble finding words to describe the shooting by a petty criminal who drove alongside Henwood’s patrol car and opened fire. The suspect was pursued and shot dead by other officers.

The slaying, said an ashen-faced Lansdowne, “was an assassination.”

Police gave the following account of the crime: While Henwood’s patrol car was stopped at a stop sign, the driver of a black Audi signaled with his lights, apparently to draw the officer’s attention. The driver then pulled alongside the cruiser, lowered his front passenger-side window, leveled a shotgun and fired, striking the officer’s head.

The driver of the Audi, later identified as Dejon Marquee White, 23, turned out to be a suspect in a shooting minutes earlier in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant in nearby El Cajon. There is no evidence Henwood knew about the incident, authorities said.

“Jeremy had no indication he was in danger,” said Lansdowne, backed at a news conference by a dozen members of his command staff and officers from other departments who responded to the incident: the El Cajon Police Department, San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and California Highway Patrol.

As the Audi sped away, bystanders rushed to Henwood’s aid. One man attempted emergency first aid. His wife took down a description of the Audi and its license-plate number. She used the radio in Henwood’s car to alert the police dispatcher.

It was the kind of help from the community that San Diego officers, including Henwood, have tried to encourage in City Heights. Henwood had said it was the kind of neighborhood where a good beat cop could make a difference, giving adults a sense of security and their children some promise for the future, according to officers who knew him.

Within seconds the dispatcher’s alert, “officer down,” brought dozens of officers.

Henwood was rushed to the emergency room of a local hospital. Lansdowne and other high-ranking and rank-and-file officers raced to the hospital.

Henwood’s parents were alerted and flew from Texas to San Diego that night. At the hospital, the family and medical officials discussed the possibility of harvesting Henwood’s organs for transplant.

In a decision that Lansdowne praised as courageous, the family gave its approval. Henwood, who was unmarried, died at 1:45 a.m. Sunday. He had been a San Diego police officer for four years.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 36 to 45 are ruled by the fifth letter of the name.

Jeremy Henwood

m is the 13th letter of the alphabet

So unfortunately the number 13 ruled his ages thirty-six to forty-five.

Saluted: Kraig Vickers of Haiku, Maui, a Navy bomb disposal team member, died when insurgents shot down the military chopper

Aug 07, 2011 3:40 AM CDT

A Maui man was one of the 30 Americans killed in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan. According to friends, Kraig Vickers of Haiku died when insurgents shot down the military chopper. Vickers was a 1992 graduate of Maui High School.

Friends remembered Vickers as a big man with a big heart.

Childhood friend Mike Labuanan of Wailuku met Vickers in intermediate school, and stayed in touch with him throughout the years. He was looking forward to seeing his friend, who was planning to return to the islands next year.

“We e-mailed a few times several weeks ago,” Labuanan said, “and he let me know that he was having another child and moving back to Oahu.”

Vickers was married to former University of Hawaii wahine basketball player Nani Flores. The Vickers and their children lived in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Moses Goods III grew up with Vickers, and remembers the fun-loving kid he played with in the forest near Haiku.

“He was Rambo,” Goods said. “He was the kid who goes into the forest and swings from trees and that kind of stuff.”

Labuanan said it didn’t surprise him that Vickers joined the Navy.

“Kraig is real strong, real smart,” he said. “And he always wanted to do something challenging, so when he said he was going into the Navy, it was only right. It kinda fit his personality.”

“He was a big man. He was a pretty large individual,” said another childhood friend, Darrett Schoeppner from his home in Wailuku. “But if you knew Kraig, or people who’ve known Kraig — nicest guy possible. Highest Christian values. Put his family and his friends above everything else. And obviously, and ultimately, put himself first for his country.”

“My family was neighbors to his family,” said Goods. “In fact, his family helped my family out in a time of need, so I knew them very, very well. Very good family.”

The Maui News reports that he was a Navy bomb disposal team member. This was the single deadliest loss for U.S. troops since the war in Afghanistan started. Most of those killed were Navy SEALS.

“You wanted to be around someone like Kraig,” Schoeppner said. “And I think you became a better person being around Kraig and knowing Kraig.”

“I will just remember Kraig as a fun-loving person that put his family and friends before himself,” said Labuanan.

Navy SEAL Kevin Houston

9:52 p.m. EDT, August 7, 2011

On the phone from Massachusetts, Joe Kennedy tried to describe what Hampton Roads should know about his lifelong friend, Navy SEAL Kevin Houston.

“I just want you to tell everybody down there,” he said, “that his goal was to make everyone around him comfortable — and safe.”

As Kennedy was reeling Sunday from the death of his larger-than-life buddy, stunned residents of Hampton Roads experienced the same feeling more than 20 times over.

Thirty U.S. troops were killed early Saturday in Afghanistan when their CH-47F Chinook helicopter was struck by a rocket-propelled grenade, according to news reports. Most of the men on board were elite Navy SEALs based in Virginia Beach, including Houston.

It was the deadliest day of the Afghanistan war, and it came at the expense of some of the best-trained troops the U.S. military has to offer.

The SEALs had successfully ended a rescue mission, coming to the relief of of U.S. Army Rangers who were taking heavy fire, said sources cited by Associated Press. They were leaving in the Chinook when the attack happened.

Naval Special Warfare officials did not release an official death toll on Sunday, but multiple media reports said 22 SEALs were killed. A Navy Times report, citing a source, said 17 were SEALs and five were direct support personnel. Most were from SEAL Team 6 based in Dam Neck.

Houston was raised in Massachusetts, but his mother moved to Chesapeake to be near her son.

“He never met a stranger,” said Jan Brown in a telephone interview. “He was curious about everyone and their lives. And he wasn’t opinionated. He gave everyone a break.”

Kennedy echoed that. The two met as 10-year-olds and Kennedy is now 35. Even back then, he said, Houston wanted to be a SEAL.

“He was selfless, absolutely selfless,” Kennedy said. “He didn’t wait for his turn to talk. He waited for his turn to listen.”

‘Brave warrior’

Elsewhere around the country, the grim news trickled out name by name as grief-stricken family members began notifying the media.

Geneva Vaughn of Union City, Tenn., said she lost her grandson, Navy SEAL Aaron Carson Vaughn.

“Aaron was a gentle man but a brave warrior,” she said. “He loved his country and his loved his family. He loved life.”

She said he had lived in Virginia Beach for about a year. He and his wife were building a house. The couple had a 2-year-old son and a 2-month-old daughter.

In Arkansas, State Rep. Jon Woods mourned the death of his high school friend, John W. Brown. According to one media report that quoted Brown’s mother, he was an Air Force tech sergeant in a paramedic unit attached to the SEALs and stationed at Pope Air Force Base in Pinehurst, N.C., where he and his wife lived.

“When I think of John, I think of the perfect soldier,” he said. “If you watch Captain America, he’s the guy who came out of that experiment.”

They graduated high school together in 1996, and Woods recalls the two of them staying up late to watch Saturday Night Live. Brown loved jokes, had a great sense of humor and was big fan of comedians Chris Farley and Adam Sandler.

Afghanistan helicopter crash killed Navy SEAL from Green Forest

9:55 p.m. CDT, August 7, 2011

Family members say U.S. NavySEAL Tommy Ratzlaff of Green Forest was killed in action in the helicopter crash in Afghanistan on Saturday. That crash killed 38 people, 30 of whom were Americans and22of whom were Navy SEALs.

Relatives say it was Ratzlaff’s childhood dream to serve his country. Ratzlaff joined the Navy in 1995 out of high school. A year later he was in SEAL training.

Ratzlaff’s sister said Ratzlaff would appreciate the well-wishes his family has received but added, “Tommy would want the focus of his sacrifice to be on the cause, not on the sacrifice itself.”

The family received news of Ratzlaff’s death by the U.S. Navy on Saturday around 10:30 a.m. The schedule for services was not finalized by Sunday night.

Ratzlaff, 35, leaves behind a wife, two sons, ages 11 and 6, and a child on the way — a baby girl due in November.

More details emerged on Sunday about the helicopter crash. U.S. officials say the American troops had just completed a rescue mission to help a U.S. Army Ranger unit that was under fire. They were leaving in their Chinook when the helicopter was apparently hit by insurgents’ fire. All on board were killed.

Relatives of one of the Navy SEALS killed in the crash of a helicopter in eastern Afghanistan are remembering him as a friendly person with a sense of humor who was close to his family and always told them not to worry about him.

Military officials came to the family home in the Mayfair section of Philadelphia on Saturday to tell them of the death of Petty Officer 1st Class Michael Strange, 25, family members said Sunday. Authorities had not yet officially announced death by Sunday afternoon.

“He loved his friends, his family, his country, he loved making people laugh. He was one of a kind,” his brother, Charles Strange III, 22, said outside the home, where more than a dozen American flags were displayed in addition to many flags planted in neighbors’ yards. “He’d walk in a room and see someone sad, and he’d make them smile.”

“He wasn’t supposed to die this young. He was supposed to be safe,” his mother, Elizabeth Strange, 46, told The Associated Press. “And he told me that and I believed him. I shouldn’t have believed him because I know better. He would say `Mom, don’t be ridiculous and worry so much. I’m safe.’”

“He was intense, he was funny, he had that dry humor,” his father, Charles Strange, told the CBS affiliate in Philadelphia.

Two U.S. officials said Sunday that the SEALs and other troops had rushed to the mountainous area to help a U.S. Army Ranger unit that was under fire from insurgents. The rescue team had completed the mission, subduing the attackers who had the Rangers pinned down, and were departing in their Chinook helicopter when the aircraft was apparently hit, one of the officials said. Thirty Americans and 8 Afghans were killed, making it the deadliest single loss for U.S. forces in the decade-long war in Afghanistan. Both spoke on condition of anonymity, as the investigation is still ongoing.

Based in Virginia Beach, Michael Strange had been in the military for about six years, four of them stationed in Hawaii, and had been a SEAL for about the last two, his mother said.

“Michael did very well. He listened to what people taught him and he learned a lot. He was real smart to begin with,” his mother said.

Charles Strange said his brother decided to go into the military near the end of his high school years in North Catholic High School.

“He loved and was great at the physical aspect of it. He loved the competitiveness, getting in shape and running and swimming and all of that,” Charles Strange said.

When he wasn’t working, he loved snowboarding, surfing, scuba diving, running, and shooting guns on the range, and was also fond of animals, his family said.

He last visited for a week in June for his birthday, his mother said.

“We went to Chink’s Steaks for a (cheese)steak and a milkshake, and we talked,” she said. “He had just bought a mini-coupe and he was showing me the car. It was really neat.”

He was supposed to come back for Thanksgiving for a big holiday celebration, she said.

“It was going to be such a good time,” she said. “He’s really going to be missed by a lot of people.”

Strange also had two sisters, 21-year-old Katelyn and 7-year-old Carly, and he recently became an uncle.

Navy SEAL Aaron Carson Vaughn, one of 30 U.S. special operations troops killed in a helicopter crash Saturday in Afghanistan, was a “great American,” his grandmother said.”As a brave warrior, Aaron was brave. But yet, he was a gentle man,” Geneva Carson Vaughn told CNN.”He loved his family. He loved his country and he was willing to give his life to protect his family and protect his country. He was a great American.”Among the 30 U.S. troops killed when the helicopter carrying them went down were 22 Navy SEALS, officials said. Also on board the helicopter were a civilian interpreter and seven Afghan commandos, officials said.It was the single largest loss of life for U.S. troops since the Afghan war began in late 2001.The troops died during a “quick reaction” mission to assist military personnel pinned down by insurgents in a fierce firefight, a U.S. military official speaking on condition of anonymity told CNN.Insurgents are believed to have shot down the CH-47 Chinook, said the official, who was not authorized to release details to the media. The Taliban claimed militants downed the helicopter with a rocket-propelled grenade.

Vaughn is survived by his wife, Kimberly, and their two children — a toddler and a 2-month-old baby girl, his grandmother said.

She spoke to CNN by phone from Union City, Tennessee, where she said Vaughn was born. He had wanted to be a Navy SEAL ever since he was a boy, she said, adding that he worked hard and had won several military medals.

Her grandson, who turned 30 in June, was stationed in Virginia Beach, Virginia, and had been in the service for about eight years, she said.

She recalled one of the last conversations she had with him.

“I told him to be careful and he said, ‘Granny, don’t worry about me.’ He said ‘I’m not afraid because I know where I’m going if something happens to me.’ Aaron was a Christian and he stood firm in his faith,” she said, her voice heavy with emotion.

“He’s with the Lord now, and I’ll see him again some day.”

IOWAN KILLED: An Iowa solder was among 30 Americans killed when a helicopter was shot down over Afghanistan

8:19 PM, Aug. 6, 2011

A U.S. Navy SEAL from Rockford in northern Iowa was among 30 Americans who died Saturday after helicopter they were aboard was shot down in Afghanistan.

The death of Jon Tumilson was confirmed Saturday night to the Des Moines Register by his father, George Tumilson.He and other family members declined further comment.

Tumilson was a 1995 graduate of Rockford High School. Rockford, a Floyd County town of about 900 people, is about 22 miles southeast of Mason City.

The Associated Press reported that most of the 30 Americans who died in the helicopter crash served in the same elite Navy SEALs unit that killed Osama bin Laden. Seven Afghan commandos were also killed when the helicopter was shot down. It was the most deadly loss for Ameridcan forces in the decade-old war.

None of the 22 SEAL personnel killed in the crash were part of the team that killed bin Laden in a May raid in Pakistan, but they belonged to the same unit, the AP reported.

Tumilson is the 19th Iowan to die in the war in Afghanistan. Since 2003, a total of 84 Iowans or people with ties to Iowa have died in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere.

A U.S. Marine tries to take cover, perched on a container, trying to shelter from the dust as a Chinook helicopter arrives to pick up supplies at Forward Operating Base Edi in the Helmand Province of southern Afghanistan, in this June 9 photo. Afghan President Hamid Karzai says 31 U.S. special forces and seven Afghan soldiers were killed when a helicopter, similar to the one shown crashed in eastern Wardak province Saturday.

11:38 PM, Aug. 6, 2011

Two Shreveport-born Navy SEALs were among the victims of the deadliest single attack in the nearly decade-long Afghanistan conflict.

Chief Petty Officer Robert James Reeves and Lt. Cmdr. Jonas Kelsall were killed Saturday when a U.S. Chinook helicopter crashed in Wardak province. Military officials believe the helicopter was shot down by Taliban insurgents.

International Security Assistance Force did report enemy activity in the area.

The attack killed 30 U.S. ISAF service men, a civilian interpreter and seven Afghan commandos, the U.S. Department of Defense said. Reports indicated many of the passengers killed were SEALs.

Reeves and Kelsall were graduates of Caddo Magnet High School where they played soccer together, said John Kelsall, Jonas Kelsall’s father. Both would join the military after graduation, although Reeves spent a year at LSU first, his father, Jim Reeves, said.

Reeves became a SEAL in 1999, his father said, and served on SEAL Team 6. He was deployed many times in his career and earned four Bronze Stars among other achievements, his father said.

Kelsall was one of the first members of SEAL Team 7, his father said, and received most of his training in San Diego. He attended the University of Texas out of Basic Underwater Demolition training where he met his wife, Victoria Kelsall, John Kelsall said. They were married for three years.

It’s being reported that Saturday, August 6 has become the deadliest single loss for American forces since the war started a decade ago. Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter in Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans.

Many of the casualties in the early morning crash were members of the elite Navy SEALs unit that killed Osama bin Laden, but not one of the victims was part of the unit that killed bin Laden.
 
The U.S. led coalition said in a statement that 30 American service members, a civilian interpreter and seven Afghan commandos were killed when their CH-47 Chinook crashed. The helicopter was a twin-rotor Chinook, a large troop and cargo transporter.
Americans included 22 SEALs, three Air Force combat controllers, a dog handler and his dog.
 
“Their deaths are a reminder of the extraordinary sacrifices made by the men and women of our military and their families, including all who have served in Afghanistan,” President Barack Obama said in a statement, adding that his thoughts and prayers go out to the families of those who perished.
 
In one small Arkansas community, they’re mourning the loss of one of their own after a deadly helicopter crash in Afghanistan took the lives of 30 service men and women.

Siloam Springs native John Brown was one of the servicemen killed in the tragedy and those who knew him call him a true hero.

His friends call him a wonderful man devoted to his country and making the lives of the people around him better.

Brown grew up in Siloam Springs and graduated in 1996.

Friends remember him as outgoing, friendly, and a man who will be missed dearly. He was a member of the United States Air Force and was aboard the helicopter that killed him and 29 other servicemen yesterday.

John W. Brown was a Navy SEAL medic. Brown served 9-years and was recently promoted to tech sergeant.

Arkansas State Representative Jon Woods said, “My good friend John Brown class of 96′ Siloam Springs was on the helicopter that crashed this morning in Afghanistan. John’s mother (Elizabeth Newlun) emailed me this morning as soon as she heard. My heart goes out to his brothers Danny, Luke & his wife Tabitha. He is now in heaven looking down on us with our Lord.”

Natives of the northwestern town of Siloam Springs 15,000 people say Brown’s heroism will be remembered forever.

“I think it’s something that the state of Arkansas can be proud of to know that one of our finest, and he was one of our finest, has died for our country,” said Justin Harris, State Representative for District 87 and a friend of Brown’s.

Another Siloam Springs native Blue Rowe – was killed in Afghanistan in 2009.

Friends say they wouldn’t be surprised if the town starts a memorial for brown as well.

The government is still in the process of notifying family members of each of the 31 service men and women killed in the crash.

Brown was stationed at Pope Air Force Base in Pine Hearst, North Carolina where he and his wife lived.

Brown will be buried in the National Cemetery in Arlington, Texas.

Sgt. Patrick Hamburger wanted some of his mom’s trail mix.

It was a taste of home the Lincoln Southeast High School graduate and Nebraska Army Air Guardsman hoped would make his deployment to Afghanistan go faster.

But the 30-year-old father was among those killed when a helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan early Saturday, the deadliest single event in the war.

The U.S. Department of Defense had not yet released Hamburger’s name as among the 30 Americans killed when the helicopter was shot down Saturday morning, but his family confirmed Saturday night it had been notified of his death.

Hamburger had been in Afghanistan for just about a week when the chopper went down.

His stepfather, DeLayne Peck, said his stepson joined the Air Guard when he was 18, and was stationed in Grand Island with his unit. He bought a house and planned to propose to the mother of his 2-year-old daughter when he returned stateside, Peck said.

He said he’d admired Hamburger since meeting him about eight years ago.

Peck said he had seen some pictures of Hamburger’s living quarters on Facebook. His home at Forward Operating Base Shank looked like a plywood box, he said, and the family had been scrambling to send a care package of electric fans, hang-up hooks and caulking materials to spruce up the place up.

And, of course, Mom’s trail mix.

The family gathered after learning the news, Peck said, but no funeral plans had been made.

The grieving process started Saturday, he said, and won’t ever end.

“I don’t think anybody can understand it until they’ve gone through it,” Peck said, “and we’re still going through it and will be for weeks and months and years.”
