Are You Living Your Eulogy or Your Résumé?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Today I want every American to see how these men and women lived," President Obama said Sunday, eulogizing the 12 men and women killed in the Washington Navy Yard shooting. He spoke of volunteers who made time to give back to their communities, like "Frank Kohler, giving dictionaries to every third-grader in his county," and "Marty Bodrog, leading the children's Bible study at church." There were fathers like Mike Ridgell, "coaching his daughters' softball teams and joining Facebook just to keep up with his girls, one of whom said he was always the cool dad." There were mothers like Mary Francis Knight, "devoted to her daughters ... who had just recently watched with joy as her older daughter got married," and grandparents like John Johnson, "always smiling, giving bear hugs to his 10 grandchildren ... who would have welcomed his 11th grandchild this fall." Have you noticed that when people die, their eulogies celebrate life very differently from the way we define success in our ever ...

Roanoke.com - over 3 years
God help us in the future. Here’s the story I wrote about the Roanoke premiere of Plan 9, the remake of Ed Wood Jr.’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. —MikeA Courtesy Darkstone Entertainment. “Plan 9” cameraman Vince Sweeny records footage of zombified Charlottesville actress Kristen Spatz for the movie’s teaser trailer. If you missed the premiere of “Plan 9” at The Grandin Theatre in Roanoke last month, then it may still be a while before you’ll get to see this homegrown remake of the worst film ever made. Charlottesville filmmaker John Johnson filmed portions of his reimagining of Ed Wood’s classic of terrible cinema, “Plan 9 from Outer Space,” in Roanoke back in spring 2011. On Aug. 24 a packed house in the Grandin’s main theater, including about 50 cast members, watched a preview of the completed film. The film doesn’t yet have a distributor. “No release date yet, until a distributor gives it to us,” Johnson wrote in a Facebook message. “But I would guess next year sometime.” ...

THE COLONEL’S RECIPE: Former William Fleming standout Jamelle Hagins tallies 10 points and 16 rebounds to lead Delaware to a 59-53 victory over Virginia. “I’ve got a hit list of schools,” Hagins says, “and this was one of the big ones.” INWARD GAZE: Logan Thomas assesses his season to date as “middle of the road,” adding “I’m not excited with how I’ve been playing or I’m not hating how I’ve been playing. Interceptions are up, but like I’ve said before, it’s because of a number of different things. They’re not all my fault. So people look at interceptions and say automatically I had a worse year. But you know, in some parts I think I’m a lot better than I was last year. Just being able to handle the entire offense, making checks, you know, being more of a part of the running game. There’s a lot of good things I’m doing well.” DOESN’T SOUND GREAT: According to Andy’s blog, freshman cornerback Donaldven Manning was not at practice Tuesday and will meet with head coach Frank Beamer tod ...

Arnold Patch - over 4 years
Over the Memorial holiday weekend Dierberg’s Arnold Commons will sell stacks of pork steaks and brats. Yet, outselling them both will be ground beef to satify the craving forthe All-American grilled hamburger. Thanks to its cooking ease and versatility, the hamburger remains the most popular item on the backyard grill. It's venerated each year on National Hamburger Day, which is on Memorial Day this year, the offical opening of the summer grilling season.  “There’s nothing better than a good burger,” said River City Casino's Chef John Johnson. He  recently created his salute to the Cardinals with the Big Red Burg for Burger Brothers. It's a half-pound cheddar cheeseburger built on a red brioche bun and skewered with three toasted raviolis. “It’s an over the top burger - but that’s what I like about burgers. They’re fun,” Chef Johnson said. When asked what the secret was to grilling the perfect burger Chef Johnson said, "Don’t play with it. That can cause it to crack and dry ...

Police: Ark. teen fatally shot while playing with gun, friend covers him with blanket
Fox News - almost 5 years
An Arkansas man assumed the boy wrapped in a blanket on his futon was his sleeping cousin. But hours later he realized it was a 14-year-old boy he didn't know who, police determined Thursday, had been shot while playing with a gun with a friend. Little Rock police said the boy, TyJuan Woodard, died after he and a 13-year-old friend were playing with a gun that accidentally fired and shot him in the chest Wednesday. The younger boy had covered Woodard's body with a blanket, then left and spent the night elsewhere without telling anyone what happened, police spokesman Lt. Terry Hastings said. One of the 13-year-old's relatives saw someone wrapped in a blanket on the futon Wednesday night. Thinking the boy was a cousin who had fallen asleep, he didn't disturb him, according to a police report. A few hours later, though, the man said he realized that the person on the couch wasn't his cousin. He then picked Woodard up and noticed he wasn't br ...

The Daytona Beach News-Journal - almost 5 years
DAYTONA BEACH -- Watching her daughter graduate from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University on Mother's Day was "bittersweet" for Debbie Smith. Smith, of Cape Coral, is proud to see her daughter, Alyssa Smith, 22, receive a bachelor's degree in air traffic management from Embry-Riddle on Sunday. But she will be leaving Florida soon for an internship at Boeing in Seattle. "It is bittersweet to see her go so far away," Smith said. But celebrating her second of four daughters graduating college, with two more following in their footsteps, "makes Mother's Day memorable." Alyssa Smith, who had two graduation caps, including a Dr. Seuss cap from her parents with the words, "Oh, the places you will go," was one of more than 800 students who received bachelor and master degrees at the Ocean Center from Embry-Riddle. President John Johnson told those attending the graduates were "one of the largest classes we've had." "We're all proud of your achievements and conf ...

Northampton Town: Langmead’s confident of achieving next year
Northampton Chronicle & Echo - almost 5 years
Kelvin Langmead believes the Cobblers should be looking to ‘achieve something’ next season and put the disappointment of the current campaign behind them. The defender has experienced all the highs and lows of what has been a generally bad season for the Cobblers. He had some moments to forget in the dark days of the autumn but rose to prominence in the second half of the year, to the point where he actually featured quite heavily in the player-of-the-year voting. Langmead finished third in the poll, and it’s not a case of onwards and upwards for the former Peterborough man. “It (next season) has got to be better than this one, for a start,” he said. “We’ve got to be looking to progress. With the manager being here, the players he has been able to attract to the club and the way we’ve finished the season I think we can look to achieve something next year. “I’m looking forward to getting a good pre-season under me because I didn’t get one last summer so I think that will help. “W ...

Mesothelioma victims deserve better than wasteful legal maneuvers

The macabre zero-sum game squanders millions of dollars and blights the mesothelioma patients' final days. The obvious alternative is to deal with asbestos claims administratively. John Johnson died three months ago, his body racked with malignant mesothelioma, a disease that's almost always caused by asbestos exposure. The Marine veteran had sued dozens of companies he believed shared responsibility for his condition, but he never got his day in court.

Glenn Vidnovic talks John Johnson, Matt Gatens

Former Iowa scoring machine <a class="fplink fp-146263" href="/John+Johnson+4">John Johnson</a> IOWA CITY, Ia. – Matt Gatens had just eclipsed the 30-point mark for the second straight game, this time against Wisconsin on Feb. 23. Acoss the Carver-Hawkeye Arena aisle from me sat Glenn Vidnovic, a starter on Iowa’s undefeated 1969-70 Big Ten championship team. I asked Vidnovic if <a class="fplink fp-146263" href="/John+Johnson+4">John Johnson</a>, the leading scorer on that team, had ever put together back-to-back 30-point games. In Big Ten play. “Oh, yea,” Vidnovic said. “All the time.” Gatens’ four-game outburst – he averaged 26.5 points in a four-game stretch against Penn State, Indiana, Wisconsin and Illinois – was impressive. “All of a sudden, the light just went on for Matt,” Vidnovic said. But what Johnson and that Ralph Miller-coached 1969-70 team did on offense was incredible. The Hawkeyes averaged 102.9 points in Big Ten play while going 14-0. That is still ...
