Watts a 'prayer warrior'

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Facebook allowed him to stay in touch with Peruvian friends, and Mr. Watts continued to work in missions education programs for boys. "He was a constant prayer warrior for our missionaries still on the field serving," Nancy said. Nancy said he still inspires her to remain active in mission work. Nancy is exploring ways to use her Spanish-speaking skills to help others, including translating for patients at doctors' offices, an idea her niece suggested. "I'm open to the Lord leading me to those opportunities," she said. Being able to travel and minister with her family was special to her, Nancy said. "Wade was just a special person. He didn't complain, even though I'm sure he was tired of being in the wheelchair." Although he wanted to overcome his physical challenges, Mr. Watts remained focused on the reasons for his goals. "I pray and I work so that I can walk according to God's will," he said in 2003. Nancy believes he accomplished just that. "Both of us just wanted God to use us in our lives," she said, "and He really has." Mr. Watts was a member of Bartlett Hills Baptist Church and a former teacher for West Memphis High School. In addition to his wife and sons, Mr. Watts leaves a brother, Mark Watts. Family Funeral Care had charge of services. (The Commercial Appeal)

Guitar picking master Doc Watson dies at 89 -

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Richard Watson told him. The ever-humble Doc Watson found it hard to believe. Country and bluegrass singer Ricky Skaggs said Tuesday evening, “An old ancient warrior has gone home.” “He prepared all of us to carry this on,” Skaggs added. “He knew he wouldn’t last forever. He did his best to carry the old mountain sounds to this generation.” Doc Watson was born March 3, 1923, in Deep Gap, about 100 miles northwest of Charlotte. He lost his eyesight by the age of 1 when he developed an eye infection that was worsened by a congenital vascular disorder, according to a website for Merlefest, the annual musical gathering named for his late son Merle. He came from a musical family. His father was active in the church choir and played banjo and his mother sang secular and religious songs, according to a statement from Folklore Productions, his management company since 1964. Doc Watson’s father gave him a harmonica as a young child, and by 5 he was playing the banjo, according to the Merlefest website. He learned a few guitar chords while attending the North Carolina Morehead School for the Blind in Raleigh, and his father helped him buy a Stella guitar for $12. “My real interest in music was the old 78 records and the sound of the music,” Doc Watson is quoted as saying on the website. “I loved it and began to realize that one of the main sounds on those old records I loved was the guitar.” The wavy-haired Watson got his musical start ...

BC-BKC--Obit-Luckenbill, BKC -

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Houston to its first two winning seasons under Guy Lewis. He ranks 26th on the school's career scoring list with 1,195 points. Drafted 15th overall by the Philadelphia Warriors in 1961, he played in only 87 NBA games before he was diagnosed with testicular cancer at the age of 23. His professional claim to fame came on March 2, 1962, when he grabbed two offensive rebounds in the final two minutes to help his teammate Chamberlain hit 100 points in the Warriors' 169-147 victory over New York. The funeral home said a private service was planned.

Furman grad's coast-to-coast walk supports Wounded Warrior Project - Greenville News

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
San Francisco Bay — 2,000 miles to the west — by early October. “Walking out West will be interesting,” says McCandless, whose motive is the same for every mile. It’s the Wounded Warrior Project, which he became familiar with through a Furman University fraternity brother, Ken Dwyer. An Army Special Forces officer who graduated from Furman in 1998, one year after McCandless, Dwyer was wounded in August 2006 in Afghanistan. A rocket-propelled grenade destroyed his left hand and left eye. McCandless called his old fraternity brother last spring, in search of some tips on training for a 3,800-mile walk. “He would know what I needed to do to walk 20 miles a day,” McCandless says. When Dwyer — now back on active duty, stationed at Fort Bragg, N.C. — explained how the Wounded Warrior Project had helped him to recover, McCandless had the charity in mind that he figured would make the hike worthwhile. (Page 2 of 2) McCandless hopes his walk will raise $25,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit endeavor that helps injured soldiers and caregivers by providing peer mentoring, employment assistance, stress recovery workshops, and caregiver retreats. The mission has given McCandless motivation at lonely times in his long, quiet trek. He wore out three pairs of shoes, and lost 30 pounds, in that first half of the journey. “Blisters were a big problem in the first couple of weeks. I was told I’d just have to suffer through that,” says McCandless, who has trained for the trip by walking at least 10 miles a day. McCandless’ path took him through rugged terrain in Eastern Kentucky and West Virginia, where he saw plenty of ...

Roger C. Molander Dies at 71; Stirred Nuclear Protests

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Roger C. Molander, who abandoned what he called the “priesthood” of cold warriors in the White House and the Pentagon to organize one of the nation’s largest and most colorful protests against nuclear arms, died on March 25 in Washington. He was 71. The cause was complications from liver cancer, his daughter Egan Molander Cammack said. Mr. Molander drew from his expertise as a Ph.D. in nuclear engineering to become an influential arms control analyst in the Defense De... (New York Times)

Wong helps lead Warriors to playoffs - Greenville News

Sun, Mar 25, 2012
The Greenville Road Warriors are going to spoil their fans. The second-year franchise clinched a spot in the ECHL postseason for the second consecutive year, riding Brandon Wong’s four-point game to a 5-1 victory over the Cincinnati Cyclones in front of 2,545 at the Bi-Lo Sunday afternoon. Wong recorded his second career hat trick, scoring a goal in the second period and two short-handed goals in the third as Greenvi...

Andrew Breitbart, barrier-busting media critic - Washington Post (blog)

Tue, Mar 6, 2012
I’m the most despicable person alive, or whatever it was he said.” And Leonnig suggests that the mainstream media serves more than one purpose for a guy like Breitbart: “Like the happy warrior he was, Andrew emphasized what he wanted to emphasize about our conversation to try to show a liberal mainstream media at work. In reporting, you get used to that. Later, his website enjoyed a real heyday with the exclusive reporting that I and my partner Joe Stephens did on the Obama administration’s flawed decisions in funding solar startup Solyndra.” Leonnig also notes: “To his credit, he never declined an interview.” The Internet bears testament to the guy’s media-friendliness. Though he died far too young, he claimed a lifetime’s share of bandwidth. If there was a camera available, there was Breitbart, taking all questions and free-associating himself into monologue territory. Jeremy Peters of the New York Times reported that he “passes along his personal e-mail address to almost anyone who asks.” His frequent appearances on cable networks plus his Web site properties, featuring Big Government, Big Journalism and Big Hollywood, made him perhaps the most successful member-cum-critic of the mainstream media. One of Zernike’s own recollections reflects just how quickly Breitbart could change hats: “I had seen him only once before, at the Tea Party convention in Nashville in February 2010, before he was about to take the stage to introduce Sarah Palin. He was hanging around the risers in back where the cameras were set up, with a glass of wine in his hand, joking around with some of the reporters. I didn’t realize who he was. I thought he was just another reporter, then suddenly he was onstage delivering this fiery anti-media speech.” Pity the obituary writers, who have to sort through Breitbart’s various roles and, in some cases, his contempt for their own media outlets. William McDonald, the obituaries editor of the New York Times, says that “if Breitbart had an ax to grind with the New York Times, which I’m sure he did,” that consideration wouldn’t necessarily figure in the obit coverage “unless it became a news event.” And just what qualifies as a news event these days is anyone’s guess. Andrew Meacham, a reporter at the Tampa Bay Times who does obituaries, voices the sentiment that many of Breitbart’s targets in the mainstream media must feel: “The conundrum about him, just having seen him on television, is that I can’t figure out if he was really a committed ideologue who was also trying to make a name for himself, or if he was largely having fun by creating this character, and in the course of doing that, sometimes got carried away with himself.” ...

Trenton High boys basketball aims to end long drought - The Times of Trenton -

Sun, Feb 19, 2012
NCAA men’s basketball national title. Rookie Oscar Robertson averaged 30 points a game and 9.7 assists for the Cincinnati Royals, but it was Wilt Chamberlain of the Philadelphia Warriors who dominated the NBA by averaging 38.4 points and 27.2 rebounds. And Trenton Central High School would win boys’ basketball’s Group IV state championship. No school in New Jersey has played in the Group IV championship game more times than Trenton High (19), and with seven state group titles, only Camden and Elizabeth/Thomas Jefferson have won more (9). As Trenton begins play in the NJSIAA tournament Feb. 27 at South Brunswick, it will again seek the Group IV title it has not won since that 1961 season — 51 years ago.The Tornadoes have also not reached the finals since 2003, when they lost to Teaneck.“We’ve had some ...
