sonia stewart March 21, 2014 at 02:58 pm
Old man Winter is a state on mind and it may be on everyone's mind next Tuesday.
Fran Asbeck March 24, 2014 at 06:31 am
The paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of winter's demise are premature.

I love you Mick Kipp! Mick and I did many fire stunts together. He is such an important part of myRead More life and career as a stuntman. In 1985 he was arrested at one of my stunts in Chagrin Falls Ohio for being in the river to help save me after a fire dive. The stunt had to wait a week because of heavy rain. He stepped up and Lit me on fire off the Falls. I was arrested that night and Mick bailed me out!! GUSTO-GO NUTS!! He would tell me. A sad day Indeed. Ted A. Batchelor

What a tragedy, the young man had his whole life ahead of him.My prayers are with his family.

When we think of heroes we tend to think of the military, but there are many heroes here at home,Read More and this man was certainly one of them, as are so many in our police3 and fire services. And he leaves behind a brother and sister following his footsteps. Our hearts go out to all his family, and to his mates in service.
Tim May 3, 2013 at 03:21 pm
Not much more to add here to this. My condolences to family and friends of this brave young man.

Very sorry for the loss of one so young in the fire service. My deepest condolences to Gene'sRead More family, friends and fellow firefighters. You will all be in my daily prayers. May God comfort you wrapping loving arms around you and give you peace in time.

As a fellow buckeye, I have very fond memories visiting the Neil Armstrong museum in Ohio.Read More Recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about our greatest astronaut. God bless you and your family. Agnes

I remember Neil Armstrong's walk on the moon when I was younger and find that his lifeRead More was an inspiration and blessing to this great nation of ours! Rest in Peace Neil and may your Creator's peace be with you for Eternity!!!

It's funny how people's ages in your mind are so different from what they actually are. Mr.Read More Armstrong was only ten years younger than my parents--and when he walked on the moon, I was a little girl. But he was the Luke Skywalker of my generation, and to me, he was much closer to my age. I am saddened by his loss, and will never forget the thrill of his moon walk. I even wrote a poem about it at that time. He was a "hero" in the best sense of the word--not a carousing, drunken, drugged-up jerk, but a true and modest man who in his own eyes was "just doing his job"--making exciting, unforgettable history for the rest of us. I'm so glad he lived to see Curiosity get to Mars--and I hope he gets the best telescope in heaven, from which to watch its progress!

Zep do you have kids & were you ever a teenager??????????? Teenagers do stupid things everyday.Read More The fact that one posted a message on twitter saying they were drinking doesn't mean they were drunk and there isn't even any proof other they a twitter post that they were drinking. People of all ages are on that bridge all the time, what happened to those girls was a freak accident and simply that. It could have happened to anyone at any given second of the day. These girls did absolutely nothing to contribute to this accident, they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. People can easily be killed anywhere, your more likely to get into a fatal car accident then a train accident, does that mean to never get into a car again???? No matter how hard you drill safety into your kids they are going to make their own decisions, these girls made a bad choice and unfortunately they paid a big price for it. But as a parent all you can hope is that you have taught them good, you can't wrap your kids in bubble wrap and keep them safe forever.
S. A. F. August 28, 2012 at 03:56 pm
No one is to blame but the kids themselves. They knew what they were doing and what the consequencesRead More could be.
JAM September 10, 2012 at 09:41 pm
They knew a container of coal would smother them to death? Kids do stupid things but they don'tRead More deserve to die for it. That Penn State Sandusky dude raped little children and he's not even getting what these girls got. What kind of justice is this?

Only a writer with the heart of a true Baltimorean could capture a true Baltimorean like "Mr.Read More Pep." / well done, Bartoli.
Marcie October 5, 2011 at 02:35 pm
Pep enjoyed helping people, making people laugh, feeding people, coaching us teaching us to becomeRead More better all the time. "You're the greatest" he would say with conviction! He would not just say it but truly mean it in such a way that it aspired us to be the greatest. We loved the man, the coach, this remarkable teacher, the comedian, the energetic singing Italian. Happiest when he was running off to the beach. His team took care of everything and he would tell us that he was truly blessed. His gratitude and show of respect made us proud. So glad to have had Pep in my life, a wonderful friend, and caring boss. We will meet up again out on the horizon where the beaches have the whitest sand and the seagulls fly overhead where the softest fluffiest clouds are floating and drifting for miles and miles. Where you will hold out your hand and say to me, “check the crab dip”.
Susan McLain October 6, 2011 at 11:16 pm
I have known Pep my whole life. We grew up together. Our families were very close. May he rest inRead More peace with the rest of our dearly departed families. We will miss you forever.

a great talent.... i wouldnt trade when i grew up for anything..in jr high-white/black stations...Read More most homes didnt have record players. elvis hit the scene and thousands of radio stations switched to what us kids liked. they played elvis so now chuck berry fats, bo diddley etc. like john lennon siad--before elvis there was nothing.
harry August 24, 2011 at 03:06 pm
ps---still a big kid-refuse to grow up---still have all my 50 and early 60's stuff.Read More magazines,records,reel to reel etc. 1500 45's and a thousand lps.. most all 50's and early 60's. of course elvis then to now....
Jean Suda August 25, 2011 at 08:45 pm
Thanks for this additional info on Lieber. Should have known that Baltimore would have someRead More influence on these great songs. Growing up in MOTOWN, Berry Gordy's rise to fame and fortune by figuring out how to sell black music to us hungry white kids was no doubt also influenced by Lieber's efforts. Loved this article.
