Richmond Circuit Court appoints gay judge - Washington Post

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
General Assembly. .?.?. This is an act of defiance on their part. When appointed officials get in fights with elected officials, they invariably lose.” Richard D. Taylor, chief judge of the Circuit Court, issued a one-page order appointing Thorne-Begland to the General District Court of Richmond, beginning July 1 and ending 30 days after the start of the next General Assembly session. “I am humbled by the Circuit Court’s decision,” Thorne-Begland said in a statement. “I look forward to serving the citizens of the City of Richmond as a jurist, and over the coming months, I hope that my service provides comfort to all Virginians that I remain committed to the faithful application of the laws and Constitutions of Virginia and the United States of America.” The appointment came just two days after leaders of Richmond’s five largest law firms wrote a letter to the Circuit Court urging it to appoint the veteran Richmond prosecutor to the bench. It came the same day that the Richmond Times-Dispatch published a letter that a Republican delegate sent to his caucus, saying that he had dropped his opposition to Thorne-Begland. Del. Richard L. Morris (R-Isle of Wight), a Navy veteran and military lawyer, said he no longer thinks that Thorne-Begland violated Navy regulations when he came out as a gay Navy pilot on national television 20 years ago. In May, the General Assembly blocked Thorne-Begland’s appointment in General District Court, a low-level bench that his House sponsor compared to the institution depicted in old sitcom “Night Court” because it primarily handles misdemeanors. Opponents said they objected to Thorne-Begland not because of his sexual orientation but because of his outspokenness on the subject of ...

Comic actor in Beatles' movies, Victor Spinetti dies at 82 - San Jose Mercury News

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
London to develop his acting career. His more than 30 film roles included the part of Hortensio in "The Taming of the Shrew" and Mog Edwards in "Under Milk Wood," both films starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. He also played the concierge in "The Return of the Pink Panther." Spinetti was co-author of the script and did two voices for "Romeo, Juliet" -- Armando Acosta's 1990 film which featured 108 cats and the actor John Hurt. The difficulty with the script, Spinetti told The Associated Press in a 1988 interview, was blending such things as cats and cars with Shakespeare's classic verse. "Some cats talk about cars so you have to try to get this into the script without the audience jolting out of their seats. Of course, you cannot rewrite something like the balcony scene," he said. Barbara Windsor, a star of the "Carry On" films, said Tuesday that she had visited Spinetti at his hospice last week. "He didn't look ill. He looked great. He was swearing a lot, like that would get rid of the illness, and we just laughed," she said. Funeral arrangements were not immediately announced.

Earl Scruggs dead at 88 - Newsday

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
Flatt on guitar, the pace was a real jolt to attendees and radio listeners far away, and in some ways the speed and volume he laid down predicted the power of electric music. Tut Taylor, a friend of the Scruggs family who heard that first performance on the radio in his Georgia home, called it an unbelievably raucous moment "a lot like some of the rock 'n' roll things they had, you know. But this was a new sound. It was a pretty sound and a welcome sound." Scruggs' use of three fingers — in place of the limited clawhammer style once prevalent — elevated the banjo from a part of the rhythm section — or a even a comedian's prop — to a lead instrument that was as versatile as the guitar and far more flashy. Country great Porter Wagoner probably summed up Scruggs' importance best of all: "I always felt like Earl was to the five-string banjo what Babe Ruth was to baseball. He is the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be." His string-bending and lead runs became known worldwide as "the Scruggs picking style" and the versatility it allowed has helped popularize the banjo beyond the traditional bluegrass and country forms. Today the banjo can be found in almost any genre, largely due to the way he freed its players to experiment and find new space. That was exactly what Ralph Stanley had in mind when he first heard Scruggs lay it down. A legendary banjo player in his own right, Stanley said in a 2011 interview that he was inspired by Scruggs when he first heard him over the radio after returning home from military service in Germany. "I wasn't doing any playing," Stanley said. "When I got discharged I began listening to Bill and Earl was with him. I already had a banjo at that time, but of course I wanted to do the three-finger roll. I knew Earl was the best, but I didn't want to sound like him. I wanted to do that style, but I wanted to sound the way I felt and that's what I tried to do." Dave Rawlings, a Nashville singer-songwriter and producer, says Scruggs remains every bit as influential and fresh seven decades later. He said it's impossible to imagine nearly every guitar player mimicking Jimi Hendrix, but with Scruggs and the banjo, that's the reality. "The breadth and clarity of the instrument was increased so much," he said. "He invented a style that now probably 75 percent of the people that play the banjo in the world play Scruggs-style banjo. And that's a staggering thing to do, to play an instrument and change what everyone is doing." News of Scruggs' passing quickly spread around the music world and over Twitter. Bentley and bluegrassers like Sam Bush and Jon Randall Stewart celebrated him at the Tin Pan South gathering of songwriters in Nashville and Eddie Stubbs dedicated the night to him on WSM, the home of the Grand Ole Opry. On the Internet, actor and accomplished banjo player Steve Martin called Scruggs, with whom he c...

Go to Nashville for a song and a weekend - Greenville News

Vanderbilt/Hillsboro area, give Fido a try. The eclectic eatery offers tons of vegetarian and meat options alike and is a perfect and reasonable brunch spot, and a favorite of celebs like Taylor Swift, who we saw munching yogurt and granola on one visit. Bosco’s is another great kid-adult option. It has a great beer selection and a good kids menu so it’s a win-win, says Leuthard. Much like Nashville itself.

Previous generation paved way for family - Greenville News

Sun, Apr 22, 2012
David Ashmore. (Page 2 of 2) It also created strong bonds that are apparent today. “Richard’s boys are like sons of mine,” says Russell Ashmore. It often seems that way in the Taylors/Greer community. “When people ask, ‘How is your dad?’ I know they mean my uncle,” says David Ashmore, “because they’ve seen us together so much.” Each of the four holds adistinct area of responsibility in the day-to-day operations, in a pattern that seems well-planned for decades. Mark (55 now and about 13 when he began pouring weekends and summers into the business), serves as president and is in charge of estimating; David (53) handles the long-term projects, which sometimes can mean two years; Rick (51) directs the finances/legal/human resources aspects; and Greg (47) leads the construction management, overseeing project managers on each job. The team benefits from rules put into place a generation ago. “They had the foresight to put in rules that keep animosity low,” says Greg. “None of us take things from the company; we don’t service our family vehicles in the shop, and we all get the same pay. The older we get, the more all that makes sense.” Another strict rule: Any conflicts are discussed the day they occur. “We straighten out our differences that day — you don’t take it home with you,” says Russell. Good thing. When the clan isn’t at work, they’re often together for vacations, holidays, church activities, and hanging out in general. All four brothers/cousins enjoy pheasant and quail hunting, sometimes as far away as South Dakota. Rick and Greg are partners in a farm/cattle operation. Mark and David are more often into water sports. All are married, with nine children and one grandchild among them. All attend Taylors First Baptist Church and are involved with various ministries within the church. David Ashmore says the unusually tight bonds in the family business can be explained in one word: trust. “We all trust each other. That thinking carries into every part of our lives,” he says, adding that it is also the cornerstone element of the business. “There are not just five people here doing all the work. We’ve been successful because we have people who have worked here 20-, 30- and 40-some years, and they’ve built trust in one another,” he says. “I’m proud of the family name, but this really isn’t about the last name; we...

Bluegrass legend, banjo innovator Earl Scruggs dies at age 88

Sun, Apr 1, 2012
Jerry Scoggins did the singing. After the breakup, Scruggs used three of his sons in The Earl Scruggs Revue. The group played on bills with rock acts like Steppenwolf and James Taylor. Sometimes they played festivals before 40,000 people. In a July 2010 interview, Scruggs said in the early days, "I played guitar as much as I did the banjo, but for everyday picking I'd go back to the banjo. It just fit what I wanted to hear better than what I could do with the guitar." Scruggs will always be remembered for his willingness to innovate. In "The Big Book of Bluegrass," Scruggs discussed the breakup with Flatt and how his need to experiment drove a rift between them. Later in 1985, he and Flatt were inducted together in the Country Music Hall of Fame. "It wasn't a bad feeling toward each other as much as it was that I felt I was depriving myself of something," Scruggs said. "By that, I mean that I love bluegrass music, and I still like to play it, but I do like to mix in some other music for my own personal satisfaction, because if I don't, I can get a little bogged down and a little depressed." He said he enjoyed playing because "it calms me down. It makes me satisfied. Sometimes I just need to pick a few tunes." At an 80th birthday party for Scruggs in January 2004, country great Porter Wagoner said: "I always felt like Earl was to the five-string banjo what Babe Ruth was to baseball. He is the best there ever was, and the best there ever will be." In 2005, "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" was selected for the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry of works of unusual merit. The following year, the 1972 Nitty Gritty Dirt Band record "Will the Circle Be Unbroken," on which Scrugg... (The Commercial Appeal)
