Let's once again salute passing heroes of WWII for what they did for us - News Sentinel

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
So many were now in uniform. Gasoline was rationed, so shopping trips were carefully planned and I quickly learned the bus schedule. Then when I moved back to Fort Wayne, I learned to go to the Dorans' fresh fruit and vegetable store because they always seemed to have a few bananas. Bananas and other imported foods were often hard to come by. Department stores cut out most deliveries: gas shortage – and good help shortage, also. Sugar was rationed, as was meat, so cooking and baking habits were changed, and there were coupons for shoes, too. Having a child took care of the shoe coupons because of continuously growing young feet. Rationing affected us all, although my dad received an extra allotment of gasoline coupons because in those days physicians made house calls and hospital trips were at least once daily. The USO was at the Pennsylvania Station. I had a built-in baby sitter — my father — so I was able to work there many hours. I've written before about making sandwiches and brewing coffee to be ready when the next troop train pulled in and we would be able to serve the steady stream of servicemen. We heard about homes all over the country and oohed and aahed over pictures of families in those homes. We answered questions and smiled a lot, even though that was sometimes not easy to do. And there were occasional dances, although I didn't go to those; they were for unmarried, young women who were delightful dancing partners. There was vmail. It was thin paper to be folded just so to go to servicemen. It was suggested we write only good news for mental health reasons. And there were letters coming back with blobs of ink making some passages impossible to read. Censorship was legal. And we were — by omnipresent posters — reminded to be cautious in what we said. “Loose lips sink ships,” they said. Security was tight. Actually, when my mother died, we were unable to send news of her death to my brother. He was at sea with radio silence. We sat around our radios listening and hoping and praying. Ed Murrow became a tremendously respected friend whom we listened to every evening. We felt safe here in our Indiana city, but we ached for people abroad whose homes and places of worship were being destroyed. And in the mind always there was fear when seeing a Western Union messenger on his bike. “Is he coming here? Please don't come here.” These men whose deaths we are now reading about came home and made new lives and took their citizenship and other obligations seriously and life went on. They were heroes, real-for-sure heroes, who gave up their comfortable lives at home — and here we are, living in the land of the free — and definitely the home of the brave. Let's salute them once again and remember what they did for us. Betty E. Stein is a retired teacher.

Former Michelin exec John Rice dies at 66 - Modern Tire Dealer

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
God, according to his obituary in the "Greenville News." He was a member of St. Mary Magdalene Catholic Church, where he found comfort before the Lord at the Perpetual Adoration Chapel. "During his final days, he marveled many times about what a wonderful gift faith is. He was dedicated to his family who loved him dearly." A native of Ohio, he graduated from Muskingum College and received his master's degree from the University of Akron. Rice is survived by his wife, Sher, his constant caregiver and best friend; and his daughter, Sierra. He was the son of the late Nancy and John Rice of Rootstown, Ohio. Among the many prayers he loved, this one came from a prayer book from his mother, who also deeply cherished her faith: "Keep my words kind, my thoughts positive, and my actions loving, a...

Knowing Rabbi Plaut -

Fri, Feb 17, 2012
World War II, attached to the 104th Infantry, an assignment that fatefully brought him back to his native Germany where he was among the first U.S. soldiers to liberate a concentration camp — Dora-Nordhausen.And we knew he wrote or edited more than 20 books throughout his long rabbinate, including the Torah commentary that has become the standard chumash at hundreds of Reform congregations — “The Torah:  A Modern Commentary,” or, as generations of Reform Jews have come to know it, “The Plaut Chumash.”All this we know, but so would anyone else who has read one of the many news obituaries written about Plaut since his death.This much we know in our kishkes: No matter what kind of Reform Jew you are — a regular temple goer, an occasional attendee at Saturday morning Torah study,...

Famous sword fighter who trained Hollywood stars left behind good friends in Largo -

Sun, Jan 22, 2012
But the people who might have known him best lived 3,000 miles away, in a Largo mobile home park. For about a decade, Mr. Anderson and his wife, Pearl, had wintered at their mobile home in Eldorado Village, a calm retirement community tucked away from the traffic on East Bay Drive. Dick Hambley, who lives a few doors down, knew that Mr. Anderson had stayed in Sussex this year due to declining health. Hambley, of New York, is a retired telephone lineman and president of the social club. A few years ago, he and his wife, Joyce, visited the Andersons at their home in England. The den lined with autographed photos from his movie work impressed him, even though he doesn't remember many names. "I'm old, so I only remember Errol Flynn," Hambley, 80, said this week, lounging barefoot on his screened porch overlooking a rectangular lake. Les Sandoe from across the street had stopped by, as neighbors do here, bringing a photo autographed by Bob Anderson of Darth Vader fighting Luke Skywalker. "With him being Darth Vader, he could have really played that up," said Sandoe, 89, a retired photo engraver from Det...
