Robert Hegyes, 60, of ‘Welcome Back, Kotter,’ Is Dead

Sun, Jan 29, 2012
James Buchanan High in Brooklyn. The theme song, written and sung by John Sebastian, was a No. 1 hit in 1976. Besides Mr. Hegyes (pronounced Hedges), the Bensonhurst irregulars in Kotter’s care, collectively known as the Sweathogs, included John Travolta as Vinnie Barbarino, Ron Palillo as Arnold Horshack and Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs as Freddie Washington. Of the four, only Mr. Travolta went on to become a bankable movie star. Epstein, half Jewish and half Puerto Rican, was known for his insouciant slouch, shirt open to the navel and an often immense Afro, capacious even by ’70s standards. As portrayed by Mr. Hegyes, the character was equal parts “West Side Story” tough and Sergeant Bilko trickster. (Mr. Hegyes said he modeled Epstein on Chico Marx.) Absence-excuse notes were among Epstein’s specialties, though the fact that they were invariably signed “Epstein’s Mother” tended to tip his hand. In the 1980s Mr. Hegyes had a recurring role as Detective Manny Esposito on the CBS crime drama “Cagney & Lacey.” The son of a Hungarian-American father and an Italian-American mother, Robert Hegyes was born in 1951 in ...

USC in the News - USC News

Sun, Jan 15, 2012
Alain Goeppert of the Dornsife College told California Watch.Los Angeles Times ran an obituary for Sidney Benson, co-director of USC's Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute, thermochemistry expert and a researcher for the Manhattan Project. Benson ran the institute with Nobel Prize winner George Olah of the USC Dornsife College. The story stated that Benson made major contributions to the study of air pollution, the ozone layer, combustion and explosions. G.K. Surya Prakash of the Dornsife College said that Benson was focused on research rather than fundraising. "His philosophy was 'Do good work and good things will happen,'" Prakash said. The article noted that Benson was recruited in 1943 by Anton Burg, who in the postwar period developed USC's chemistry department into a highly regarded source of research.The Atlantic featured research by Jenny Schuetz of the USC Price School and a New School colleague, who studied gentrification patterns in New York. The study looked at 208 New York City ZIP codes between 1998 and 2007 to see how retail properties, demographics and affluence changed during that time. The study noted that "low-income neighborhoods have lower densities of both establishments and employment, smaller average establishmen...

Hillcrest earns three-peat - Greenville News

Sun, Jan 15, 2012
Blue Ridge’s Jordon Ludd in the final. Greenville’s Antonio Moore became a two-time county champion by winning at 182, and the Red Raiders’ Duncan Benson took first at 172. Eastside had three champions: Jacob Simmons (140), Marlin Houtz (154) and Tre Long (285). “Across the board it wasn’t the best finish, but we certainly had some kids do well,” Eastside coach Jack Kosmicki said. “Jacob winning was huge because (Riverside’s) Coates (Carpenter) is a very good wrestler.” Simmons earned a 2-1 decision over Carpenter, a two-time state runner-up. The 134-pound final between Eastside’s Clay Walker and Riverside’s Austin Such was stopped by the referee with Such leading 4-3 in the second period. Walker had been battling an injury to his left shoulder incurred in the semifinals. The result was a second county title for Such. Mauldin’s Charlie Cook won his second straight county title, placing first at 122, and Travelers Rest’s June Downs claimed the 197-pound crown and improved to 35-1. Greer had two champions: Jalen Chapman at 128 and Storm Nelson at 147. For the top six finishers in each weight class, go to

Chris Peck: Last words are first with readers - Memphis Commercial Appeal

Wed, Jan 11, 2012
Memphis as a minister at Second Congregational United Church of Christ. But he had a whole other career -- 26 years as a U.S. diplomat in places like Kenya, Egypt and Liberia. -- Richard "Dick" Benson of Cordova died on Tuesday. He worked as a plant manager for Pepsi Cola, but his family clearly was most proud of the fact that he had donated 19 gallons of blood to those in need over his lifetime. -- Sarah Baker Ryan, a mother and grandmother who died on Wednesday, touched thousands of lives because she worked as a schoolteacher for 51 years -- the last 10 years in DeSoto County Schools. Eula B. chose a busy week for her death. The period from New Year's Eve through the first week of the new year historically is the busiest time for newspaper obituaries. At The Commercial Appeal, we'll likely publish about 1,700 obits of people like Eula B. Massey this month. By year's end, the obit pages will have told the last details of the lives of more 18,000 people in Greater Memphis. People like us. Chris Peck is editor of The Commercial Appeal.

Ralph MacDonald, Pop Percussionist, Dies at 67

Wed, Dec 21, 2011
The New York Times recounted in 1977, he made similarly defining contributions to records by Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Aretha Franklin, Phoebe Snow, Rod Stewart, George Benson, James Taylor, Billy Joel, Luther Vandross and Amy Winehouse. “My approach is to work with melody by simply enhancing it,” he told The Times. Mr. Simon, with whom he made six albums, “sings such pretty songs,” he said, that “it’s a challenge to enhance that without overdoing it.” Mr. MacDonald began learning his craft at an early age. His father and five uncles, immigrants from Trinidad, all played professionally in calypso bands. It was one of his uncles, Urias Fritz, who taught him to play with his fingers, not his whole hand, and showed him where to hit the drum. “He didn’t just hit the top of the drum,” Mr. MacDonald said in an interview. “He’d hit it all over, for all types of sounds.” Mr. MacDonald was 17 when Harry Belafonte hired him for his touring orchestra. He worked with Mr. Belafonte for 10 years, and at some point informed him that despite his many gold records and despite being celebrated as the King of Calypso, Mr. Belafonte really did...
