FOUR HEROES
Hawaii Reporter - about 2 years
BY DUANE ALLEN VACHON, PH.D. Am going to put Hoosier heroes on hold until next week. On February 3rd it will be the 72nd anniversary of four acts of selfless courage by four of my favorite heroes. On January 23, 1943, in the early morning, the Dorchester left New York, it was en route to Greenland, carrying approximately 900 soldiers, among these were four chaplains. The Dorchester was part of a convoy of three ships (SG-19 convoy). The convoy was escorted by Coast Guard Cutters Tampa, Escanaba, and Comanche. The Dorchester was a 5,649 ton civilian cruise ship, 368 feet long with a 52-foot beam and a single funnel, originally built in 1926 by Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company, for the Merchants and Miners Line, operating ships from Baltimore to Florida, carrying both freight and passengers.

Three Pumpkin Farmers Carving Out a Niche
Fox Business News - over 3 years
With only a handful of weeks to sell their crop, pumpkin farmers across the country say special features are the key to enticing customers. While not all growers open their doors to walk-in customers looking for a carving pumpkin, experts at Penn State say there are 50,000 acres of pumpkins planted each year in the U.S., generating more than $100 million in revenues. About half of those acres are located in the northeastern United States. Ron Brigati, owner of Melville, NY's White Post Farms, says his family-owned farm has been in operation since 1886. While folks in Washington, D.C. may beg to differ, Brigati says so far, it's been a great season for pumpkins. "We've had spectacular weather … As long as the weather's good, people come out with their families and young children," says Brigati. In rainy seasons, Brigati says pumpkins tend to rot more quickly, so the relatively warm, dry fall in New York has kept the pumpkins firm. Brigati sells his pumpkins for 69 cents a pound ...

Strom Thurmond's mixed-race daughter dies at 87
Fox News - about 4 years
Essie Mae Washington-Williams, the mixed-race daughter of one-time segregationist Sen. Strom Thurmond who kept her parentage secret for more than 70 years, has died. She was 87. Vann Dozier of Leevy's Funeral Home in Columbia said Washington-Williams died Sunday. A cause of death was not given. Washington-Williams was the daughter of Thurmond and his family's black maid. The identity of her famous father was rumored for decades in political circles and the black community. She later said she kept his secret because, "He trusted me, and I respected him." Not until after Thurmond's death in 2003 at age 100 did Washington-Williams come forward and say her father was the white man who ran for president on a segregationist platform and served in the U.S. Senate for more than 47 years. "I am Essie Mae Washington-Williams, and at last I am completely free," Washington-Williams said at a news conference revealing her secret. She was born in 1925 after Thurmond, then 22, had an a ...

"The Lizzard Ball?" you ask.
Buffalo Rising - almost 5 years
Sometimes the history of an event speaks just as loud as the event itself. The event that I am referring to in this case is the Lizzard Ball. "The 'what' ball?" you may ask. The Lizzard Ball! Remember the Blizzard Ball? If you've been living in Buffalo for long enough, then you might. The Blizzard Ball was designed as a fancy dancy tux and gown wearing function around the time of the Blizzard of '77.  Although I never made it to the Blizzard Ball, I heard that it was quite the scene. While socialites were raising flutes of Champagne into the air, there were a bunch of common folk types who had decided that the event was too highfalutin, and it was time to start their own event (ala Infringement Festival style). They called it Lizzard Ball and believe it or not, the event is still being held to this day. "It was started shortly after the blizzard of '77," Janna Willoughby-Lohr of BloodThirsty Vegans fame told me. "When some of the richer folks in the city founded the Blizza ...
