          Hurricane Hell: Here Are 5 of the Most Recent Devastating Storms Linked to Climate Change      Cache   Translate Page      
The new normal is frightening.

Only two weeks after the government of Puerto Rico raised the official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975—making it the deadliest hurricane to occur last year—North and South Carolina residents are evacuating coastal areas in preparation for Hurricane Florence, which is expected to deliver winds of 130 miles per hour and be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas since the 1980s. Hurricanes have been pounding the southeastern U.S. for centuries, but in the era of climate change, they are becoming more frequent and more devastating.

Meteorologists are seeing an increase in the what is known as “rapid intensification,” meaning that a storm’s maximum sustained winds increase by at least 35 mph within a 24-hour period. According to data from the National Hurricane Center, there were, on average, ten cases of rapid intensification per year between 1982 and 1994—whereas between 2005 and 2017, 20 cases per year was the average. In 2017, the National Hurricane Center reported 40 cases of rapid intensification.

Meteorologists have five separate categories for hurricanes, with Category 1 being the least severe and Category 5 being the most severe. Florence appears to be reaching the Carolinas as a Category 4, but it could intensify to Category 5. And when rapid intensification—a phenomenon encouraged by climate change—occurs and a hurricane goes from Category 1 to Category 4 or 5 in less than 24 hours, there is little time to prepare.  

Here are five of the most devastating hurricanes that occurred in recent years.

1. Hurricane Katrina

In August 2015, Hurricane Katrina originated in the Bahamas before making its way to the U.S. A hurricane varies in intensity, and at its worst, Katrina became a Category 5 storm. The National Hurricane Center attributed a total of 1836 deaths to Katrina, with up to 1577 deaths in Louisiana—and the flooding was so severe in New Orleans that 80% of the city was under water.

Veteran reporter Mark Schleifstein, who covered Katrina for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, witnessed Katrina first hand and has some grim advice for residents of the Carolinas who are refusing to evacuate for Hurricane Florence: “write your Social Security number on your arm, so officials can identify your body.”

2. Hurricane Harvey

2017 was a terrible year for hurricanes, and one of the worst was Hurricane Harvey—which affected parts of Latin America (including Nicaragua and Honduras) but was especially devastating around the Texas Gulf Coast. Of the 108 deaths caused by Harvey in late August/early September 2017, 103 were in Texas. Some weather stations in Texas reported more than four feet of rain, and Houston suffered some of the worst flooding in the city’s history. 

3. Hurricane Maria

Only a few weeks after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas Gulf Coast, the Caribbean was, in September 2017, pounded by Hurricane Maria—which reached Category 5 at its worst. Maria caused some deaths in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Guadalupe, but the worst damage by far occurred in Puerto Rico. Of the more than 3,050 people killed by Maria, most of the fatalities occurred in Puerto Rico—although 65 people were killed on the island of Dominica, which didn’t have time to adequately prepare thanks to rapid intensification. A year later, Puerto Rico is still recovering from Maria.

Maria is a perfect example of how bad climate change is making rapid intensification: the storm went from Category 1 to Category 5 in only about half a day.

4. Hurricane Sandy

In the U.S., hurricanes have been most likely to affect the southern states.

Floridians are more likely to experience hurricanes than residents of New Jersey or Massachusetts, but that doesn’t mean that residents of the northeastern U.S. are immune to them—not by a longshot. And in 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused billions of dollars in damage, pounding the New Jersey Shore and the coast of Maryland as well as New York City. Atlantic City was evacuated, parts of Manhattan suffered flooding, and the mass transit systems of NYC and Philadelphia (which is about 60 miles inland) were shut down.

When Kevin E. Trenberth (a senior climatologist for the National Center for Atmospheric Research) was asked whether or not Hurricane Sandy was affected by climate change, he responded that while the answer was yes, Sandy was hardly unique in that regard. In 2012, Trenberth asserted, “All weather events are affected by climate change because the environment in which they occur is warmer and moister than it used to be.”

5. Hurricane Ike

In September 2008, Hurricane Ike caused at least 195 deaths and affected a wide area ranging from Cuba, Haiti (where at least 74 deaths occurred) and the Bahamas to the Florida Panhandle, the Mississippi Coast and the Texas Gulf Coast. Altogether, Ike is believed to have caused about $38 billion in damage.

          Early Comics of the International Syndicate Part VI: The Toles Show, with a Side of 'Midget'      Cache   Translate Page      

From 1901 and stretching back to the 1896 inauguration of the International Syndicate weekly page, only C.E. Toles seemed to have any interest in producing a cartoon series. Mr. Toles was also by far the most prolific contributor, but I don't sense that series cartoons were disallowed of the other contributors.

Above we have a sample of the Toles series Reverend O. Shaw Fiddle D.D. I previously thought he had produced this series for the Philadelphia Press, but it turns out they were simply using bits and pieces of the International material in their paper. This series is a revival of the series Reverend Fiddle D.D. that Toles produced for the New York Journal in 1898.

This is the first real series, in the sense of using a continuing character, that ran on the International page. It is also the first series that ran on a regular basis. It ran each week from June 9 to July 14 1901.



The cartoonist who signed himself "Midget" produced many cartoons about bugs, and his style strongly resembles that of Gus Dirks. I thought for awhile that it might be Dirks using a pen name, but much later on, the same 'bug cartoonist' started signing himself as Joe Hanover on the International page.

Although I suppose you could make a case that all the bug cartoons are a sort of series, I didn't count them as such. "Midget" did manage to produce two episodes of Buggum and Snailey's Sideshow (2nd installment titled Buggum and Snailey's 20th Century Show). The first episode ran on June 23 1901, the second not until August 11. Committed to the series concept Mr. Midget certainly was not.


C.E. Toles produced six episodes of Tales of the Orient (later retitled Tales of the East) but it took him the better part of a year. The first episode appeared on November 12 1899, the last on October 14 1900. Each installment was rather text-heavy, just like the first one shown above.



The first continuing series on the International weekly page appeared so infrequently that I nearly didn't recognize it as such. Koon Tracks, a strip about stereotypical blacks with a hunting theme appeared on October 29 1899, December 17 1899, March 4 and March 25 1900.


Our last sample from the International Syndicate weekly page is its first installment in the Rochester Democrat-Chronicle, April 26 1896, and the earliest found in which it is a full page with masthead. Jeffrey Lindenblatt finds good evidence that a page existed as early as July 1895 in the Cincinnati Enquirer, but they chopped it up just enough so as to be uncertain as to the complete contents that were being distributed.

As you can see in the sample above , the early version was a little more text-heavy than it would be later, but right from the first it offered both panels and comic strips. The prolific C.E. Toles was its most frequent contributor right from the start.

As autumn is right around the corner, my mind drifts back to one of my favorite pastimes in my hometown, Chicago. I would walk for hours in the various neighborhoods near where I lived looking at the gorgeous late-1800s architecture. During the 1980s, there was a boom in restoring historic properties. I lived about seven blocks north of this house, which I often walked by and loved. If it is true that eight blocks in Chicago equals a mile, then I must have walked thousands of miles in my life there, and saw so many wonderful, restored old houses. This posting will feature the “Italianate” revival style.

I’m pretty sure I walked by the Bellinger House dozens of times in my Chicago period. I asked an art historian friend once about the entrance on the “second floor,” and he told me that it was routinely done in Chicago neighborhoods before the storm drains were perfected. This way, only the kitchen and storage would be flooded when the sewers would inevitably back up. Hence, also the reason for the raised sidewalks of wooden planks at the time.

This house was named for the guy who commissioned it, a Chicago police officer named Richard Bellinger. There is a story about how he saved his house from the Great Fire in October of 1871. Since the fire burned all the way from De Koven Street to Fullerton Avenue (just north of Bellinger House), a lot of buildings around the house were destroyed. Bellinger supposedly saved his house by first dousing it with water from his well. When that ran out, he supposedly used cider from his cellar. He also tore up the wooden sidewalk and patted out sparks.

The Italianate style was popular in the US between the 1840s and 1880s. Before the fire, Chicago homes in the style were block-like residences like the Bellinger House. The style was meant to emulate an Italian “country villa,” though I’m hard-pressed to see that in this building. Stylistic features in Chicago included decorative hoods on the windows, an accentuated verticality, decorative balustrades, and restrained classical elements like the Ionic capitals on the porch.

The architect of this house, William Boyington (1818–1898), was conversant in numerous revival styles for his designs. Born in Southwick, Massachusetts, he trained initially, as many American architects did during the 1800s, as a carpenter. He then apprenticed in a New York architecture firm before moving to the quickly growing metropolis of Chicago in 1853. Because of the lack of architects in the city, he was able to get commissions all over the upper Midwest. Aside from Italianate, he designed many private homes in the Gothic Revival, Romanesque Revival, and Beaux-Arts Classicism (Second Empire Baroque).

Boyington’s most enduring monument in Chicago is the Water Tower (Romanesque Revival), which survived the Fire and still bears some burn marks.

Here are some variations on the Italianate style. There are a lot of examples in Charleston, South Carolina, because, fortunately, the city was not messed up to the extent of cities like Atlantaduring the Civil War (1860–1865).

This Autenrieth and Collins design is still preserved in downtown Philadelphia, although the Lit Brothers stores went under in 1977. In 1979, the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Buildings. This gorgeous building is a combination of cast iron with a facing of glazed brick and terracotta window surrounds.

          [OPINION] American Horror Story - Every Season Ranked      Cache   Translate Page      



Disclaimer
Please note that the views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of SpoilerTV.

In the fall of 2011, American Horror Story seemed like a bit of a gamble for FX. Not much was known about the series when it debuted other than the buzzy cast (Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, and Jessica Lange) and lauded creators (Glee and Nip/Tuck producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk). A gothic soap with twisted thrills, it quickly became the most talked about series around every water cooler. With ratings rising consistently throughout the first season, it wasn’t long before AHS was an outright sensation, wowing both critics and audiences with dark, daring, and often disturbing storylines, electrifying performances, and some truly incredible cinematography and set dressing.

At the end of the first season, which has since been dubbed ‘Murder House’, Murphy and Falchuk announced that AHS would continue on as an anthology series, utilizing much of the same cast each year, but telling different stories with (mostly) brand new characters. Today, the show should be credited as kicking off the now-omnipresent wave of anthology series that dominate television: Fargo, Genius, American Crime, True Detective, and Murphy’s own American Crime Story and Feud are just a few. Over the years, debates have raged online on as to which season of AHS reigns supreme – and which one belongs six feet under.

With the eighth season, ‘Apocalypse’ set to debut tonight, I present the definitive ranking of every American Horror Story season so far... according to me.

7 – ‘Cult’ (Season 7)


Main Cast: Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Adina Porter, Billy Eichner, Allison Pill, and Billie Lourd.

A season that was notable only for Evan Peters’ phenomenal performance as psychotic cult leader Kai Anderson, 'Cult' was set around the election of Donald Trump in late 2016. Murphy crossed the stories of Ally Mayfair-Richards (Paulson), a liberal restaurateur who is haunted by her paralyzing phobias, and Kai, a mentally deranged young man who plays on the growing fear and hostility in America to form a suburban cult.

More than anything, 'Cult' served political platitudes that didn’t have much more to say than, ‘Trump is evil’ and ‘sexism and racism are bad’. What Murphy and his team neglected to do was write any fully-formed characters or work towards a clear climax. So while the season started off promisingly enough, it eventually gave way to the same issues that have plagued too many recent seasons of AHS. It meandered for episodes on end, became overstuffed with needless side stories, and used characters as puppets for the plot rather than ever really developing them. Despite an amusing repertoire of mostly-new cast members (Colton Haynes and Leslie Grossman also joined the fun), 'Cult' felt like it never really knew where it was going.

Perhaps most egregious of all, the audience was never even shown how the titular cult was formed, which was indicative of a larger issue with the season. Too many of the important plot points happened offscreen, probably because they made no sense and Murphy couldn’t figure out how to write them. It felt like the writers decided to do a topical season based on the election and just threw together all these pieces as they went along. Bits of it were fun, but as a whole, it was a mess.

By the end of the season, it seemed as though the series had totally given up on the main narrative. Instead, we got Evan Peters playing a range of real-life cult leaders from Charles Manson to Jim Jones in multiple episodes. These vignettes ranged from mildly amusing to totally absurd, and despite Peters’ stellar performance, they all felt unnecessary and little more than inconvenient distractions from the season getting to any logical conclusion. When all was said and done, the story had become so full of plot holes, implausibilities, and leaps in logic that it became impossible to enjoy the few things that the show was doing well.

6 – ‘Hotel’ (Season 5)


Main Cast: Lady Gaga, Matt Bomer, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Denis O’Hare, West Bentley and Angela Bassett.

Another example of a season that started off with promise but completely crumbled by the halfway point, 'Hotel' was a major transition for AHS, being the first season without star Jessica Lange. In her place, Murphy introduced Lady Gaga as The Countess, a bloodsucker who calls the mysterious Hotel Cortez home. While the direction, sets, costume design, and cinematography are among the best of the series, the cast and writing didn’t quite live up to the rest of the package.

Particularly trite was the story of the Ten Commandments Killer, a so-called mystery that became painstakingly obvious almost immediately. As with 'Cult', 'Hotel' introduced a number of interesting characters that the writers had no idea what to do with. Instead, by mid-way through the season they were adding a number of bizarre side-plots that distracted from the main arc and added little to the narrative. This is all the more devastating due to the fact that heavyweight talent like Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett and Matt Bomer were essentially being thrown scraps.

One character and plot remains largely memorable, however. Denis O’Hare gave one of the finest performances of the entire series as Liz Taylor, an enigmatic transgender bartender who also resides within the Hotel Cortez. The flashbacks to Liz’s life before her transition, as well as how she came to the hotel, remain a crowning achievement of AHS, at once devastating and triumphant. O’Hare, who has consistently been a series highlight, gave a bold and fearless performance that makes me question why he wasn’t given more to do in 'Roanoke' or brought back at all for 'Cult'.

5 – ‘Roanoke’ (Season 6)


Main Cast: Sarah Paulson, Cuba Gooding Jr., Kathy Bates, Adina Porter, Angela Bassett, Lily Rabe, Andre Holland, Wes Bentley and Cheyenne Jackson.

'Roanoke' will always get some bonus points in my book for shaking things up. While Murphy typically announces the theme of each season months in advance (coupled with vast promotional campaigns from FX), 'Roanoke' remained a mystery until the season premiere aired… and even then, fans weren’t exactly sure what they were watching. Initially billed as ‘My Roanoke Nightmare’, the season was essentially split into two, with the first five episodes telling the story of a haunting in North Carolina, presented as a docu-drama complete with actors performing re-enactments and the real-life 'survivors’ telling their stories through confessional footage. At episode six, the paradigm shifts, and the story is then told through found footage billed as ‘Return to Roanoke: Three Days in Hell’.

If all of that sounds a bit confusing, it was. Many actors were playing two, sometimes three, roles. Nevertheless, it was mostly wildly entertaining, and even a bit scary in parts. It was also the rare installment of the series that got better as it went along. What it lacked, however, were any truly great characters (though Paulson’s campy, entitled actress Audrey Tindall was endlessly amusing). Even the weakest seasons of AHS have given us memorable character arcs, while 'Roanoke' was much more focused on style and story than any real character development. The result was a season that was fun if not fantastic. That is, until the truly awful finale, which deserted all thrills in favor of more gimmicky show-within-the-show pieces that let down all the excitement and tension that had built for the previous 9 weeks.

The need to unnecessarily, and illogically, shoehorn in Lana Winters from 'Asylum' was confirmation that Murphy’s decision to oblige fan-demand that each season be connected could hurt the show more than it might ever help it. Hopefully it will work out much better for 'Apocalypse'.

4 – ‘Freak Show’ (Season 4)


Main Cast: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Michael Chiklis, Finn Wittrock, and Dennis O’Hare.

'Freak Show' was the toughest to place on my list. Divisive amongst fans while it aired, it has aged better for me than any installment that has come since. It was also the last season to feature Jessica Lange in a lead role, and despite several incredible performances from many talented actors in subsequence seasons, the series has never been able to fully recapture the magic that Lange brought to each of her characters. Here, she starred as Elsa Mars, an enigmatic ex-pat who runs Fräulein Elsa's Cabinet of Curiosities in Jupiter, Florida. While Lange gave a killer performance, it was actually a newcomer who stole the show.

Finn Wittrock joined the series as Dandy Mott, a spoiled, rich, man-child who developed a perverse obsession with Sarah Paulson’s conjoined twins Bette and Dot. Mott, after forming a chill-inducing friendship with (the sorely underutilized) a murderous clown named Twisty, becomes the true villain of the season. Wittrock’s performance was electric, consistently both terrifying and oddly endearing – he reminded me, at times, of a young Malcolm McDowell in A Clockwork Orange.

Likewise, the cinematography and set decoration also harkened back to classic Kubrick. Directors like Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and Michael Uppendahl brought an often-claustrophobic feeling to the series, utilizing gorgeous sets and locations that were at once stylish, sprawling, and haunting. 'Freak Show' wasn’t perfect (let’s just pretend 90% of the musical numbers never happened) but it had tons of fantastic characters and was able to nail a satisfying ending for pretty much every one of them.

3 – ‘Coven’ (Season 3)


Main Cast: Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Dennis O’Hare, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Emma Roberts, Lily Rabe, and Frances Conroy.

While easily the most popular season ratings-wise, 'Coven' was the installment where AHS began to show real cracks. Looking back, it has many of the same issues that later proliferated in subsequent seasons. Still, many fans call 'Coven' their absolute favorite. More so than he did with the first two seasons, Murphy fully embraced supernatural camp here, telling the story of Miss Robichaux's Academy, a conservatory for young witches in New Orleans run by headmistress Cordelia Foxx (Paulson), the daughter of the current Supreme, Fiona (Lange). The main storyline follows the question of which young woman will become the next Supreme, a witch born every generation who embodies specific gifts and magical abilities known as the Seven Wonders.

Murphy also tied in some haunting New Orleans lore, including the twisted story of slave killer Delphine LaLaurie (Bates), voodoo priestess Marie Laveau (Bassett), and the notorious Axeman serial killer (Danny Huston). Plus, Stevie Nicks showed up and twirled around and sang some songs.

My main problem with this season was the lack of follow-through for so many introduced storylines. We discover early on that each of the young main witches has a specific unique gift (or curse, in some cases) but they’re never explained. I was hoping that the finale would shed some light, for example, on why Taissa Farmiga’s character Zoe spontaneously kills men when she has sex with them. No such luck. There were also too many characters who were inessential to the plot (this is the only season where Evan Peters' character feels like an after-thought). If you take 'Coven' for what it is – ridiculously campy, scary fun with great performances and snappy writing – it’s easily enjoyable. If you’re looking for cohesive stories or character arcs with follow-through, look elsewhere.


2 – ‘Murder House’ (Season 1)


Main Cast: Connie Britton, Dylan McDermott, Jessica Lange, Evan Peters, Taissa Farmiga, Dennis O’Hare, Lily Rabe, and Francis Conroy.

The season that started it all still holds up as one of the strongest installments of the franchise. A biting thriller centered around the Harmon family’s quest to start over after a series of troubling events, the first season was a fascinating mix of scary, sexy, sad, and twisted. Knockout performances from Connie Britton and Jessica Lange put the series on the map, but it was the entire ensemble that made this season so memorable.

'Murder House' accomplished what too many of the following seasons have failed to: it told a singular, cohesive story that nailed a spectacular climax (“Birth”) and a satisfying conclusion (“Afterbirth”). Murphy expertly utilized a large cast with stories spanning not only decades but entire generations, to tell a universal story about infidelity, infatuation, love, loss, and family. Despite the ghosts, monsters, and – of course – Rubber Man, the most affecting moments were human: Vivien (Britton) being pushed to the limits of her sanity, Tate (Peters) having to face up to his brutal, murderous past, and Constance (Lange) reflecting on the horrifying realities of her broken family.

1 – ‘Asylum’ (Season 2)


Main Cast: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, Zachary Quinto, Joseph Fiennes, James Cromwell, and Lizzie Brocheré.

Not just the best season of AHS, 'Asylum' is also one of the finest limited series to air this decade. Masterfully directed, written, and designed, and populated with brilliant characters, 'Asylum' wasn’t just creepy – it was downright terrifying. It was also frequently funny, sharp, and incredibly poignant.

Anchored by a powerhouse performance from Jessica Lange as Sister Jude, a nun maintaining patients at Briarcliff Manor in 1964, 'Asylum' also spanned several decades and told multiple stories but was able to follow a clear throughline and deliver a satisfying conclusion. This is perhaps even more impressive when you take into account exactly how much was covered in just 13 episodes: dozens of complex and often endearing patients, a nun possessed by the devil, a gruesome serial killer with unsettling mommy issues, a deranged doctor who may or may not have been a Nazi (Anne Frank shows up), a killer in a Santa suit, and even some aliens.

Despite all of this, what 'Asylum' got right amidst even the most otherworldly trappings, was that the human stories mattered most. Murphy gave us characters who we could root for, so that when they were in danger or being oppressed and tortured we genuinely cared. This also led to more genuine scares than any other season. Sarah Paulson’s reporter, Lana Winters, went through some of the most macabre and horrifying trials of any character on the series, and she remains one of the most beloved because she was so thoughtfully developed and written. Even with all the wild implausibilities, viewers could see themselves in these characters and situations - and nothing is more frightening than that.

          ESTHER'S TEMPTATION - Lena Nelson Dooley - One Free Book      Cache   Translate Page      
Dear Readers, once again I have a book releasing this week, on Friday—Esther’s Temptation. And once again, I’m answering the questions I ask the authors I feature here.

Bio: Multi-published author Lena Nelson Dooley has had more than 900,000 copies of her books sold. She is a member of ACFW and the local chapter, ACFW - DFW.She’s a member of Christian Authors’ Network and GatewayChurch in Southlake, Texas.

She has been on the ECPA and CBA Bestseller lists, Publisher’s Weekly bestseller list, and several Amazon Bestseller lists as well as a reviewer’s Top Ten Books of 2011. She has won over a dozen major awards.

She hosts “The Lena Nelson Dooley Show” on the Along Came a Writer Blogtalk radio network.

Tell us how much of yourself you write into your characters.
I don’t think an author can write an authentic story without some things about them being a part of the story. In Esther’s Temptation, I understand what Esther felt and used the emotions I felt when I had the same kind of temptation.

What is the quirkiest thing you have ever done?
Quirky could be my middle name. I’ve often done things most people wouldn’t try. When I was attending OuachitaBaptist Collegein Arkadelphia, Arkansas, (back when it was a college, instead of a university) I did the most dangerous thing I ever did. Ouachita is in a mountainous region. On the campus property, there was a place where a large pipe, maybe 12 inches across, connected two parts of the mountain. It was probably about 40 feet above the ravine. A group of us were hiking in that area. I don’t remember why I did it, but I crossed that ravine walking on that pipe. I don’t remember anyone else doing it with me. Probably for a good reason.

When did you first discover you were a writer?
I came from a family where writing was just part of family life. Only one other person in my immediate family has been published. My brother is a retired minister, and he had a book of sermons published before I became a professional writer. You can read the testimony of how God told me to become a professional writer by clicking on the About Me tab at the top of this blog.

Tell us the range of the kinds of books you enjoy reading.
Most of the nonfiction books I read, besides the Bible, are reference books I use for research. But I love reading fiction. I’ve read books ever since I was five years old. I love most genres, except horror. In the last few years, there are so many good, well-written Christian novels that I’ve stopped reading any fiction besides Christian fiction.

How do you keep your sanity in our run, run, run world?
Keeping close contact with the Lord is the best way. And spending time with my family and friends is a close second.

How do you choose your characters’ names?
Some arrive when the character does. Sometimes, I use a name to honor someone dear to me. And there’s always name websites, especially if I want a historical name or a name for a specific nationality.

What is the accomplishment that you are most proud of?
Not being prideful, but having points of pride in what the Lord has helped me accomplish. My dear husband and I have been married almost 54 years. Our anniversary is in November. We raised wonderful children, who have given us grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I’m blessed when readers let me know how one of my books changed their lives. And God has blessed me to allow my books to win awards and appear on bestseller lists.

If you were an animal, which one would you be, and why?
I would love to be an eagle and soar above the earth, riding on the wind currents.

What is your favorite food?
Dark chocolate and TexMex food.

What is the problem with writing that was your greatest roadblock, and how did you overcome it?
When I started writing professionally, we didn’t have all the professional organizations that are available today. I was a storyteller, so I just told a story. Later I began to learn the real craft of writing, and there have been many people along the way who helped me.

Tell us about the featured book.
This book is #9 in the Thanksgiving Books and Blessing series. All the books in the series will be released in a collection in early November.

Here’s the back cover copy:
Saddle weary, former deputy USMarshal Jac Andrews rides into Denton, Texas. He’d hunted a swindler and his daughter—or identical twin daughters if Jac is right—and he feels he finally has caught up with this criminal gang. Unfortunately, He is immediately distracted by the lovely redhead, Esther Brians.

Esther, feeling like an old maid surrounded by all her close friends who are happy married couples, is drawn to the intense gaze, blue as the Texas sky, of an unknown cowboy. But several things cause her to become wary of his intentions—and his spiritual well-being.

Has this unsaved lawman captured Esther’s heart or will the Lord deliver her from the temptation of Jac’s presence?

What will it take for Jac to win this lovely lady and become Esther’s husband?

Please give us the first page of the book.
August – Deep in the heart of Texas
1896. How could it be 1896? When Jac Andrews started this quest, he figured he’d be married with children by this time in his life. All the years had passed without achieving his goals—both of them.

He sure hoped that was Denton, Texas, up ahead and not a mirage. His head ached from the bright sunlight and long hours. He’d been in the saddle so long he felt as if it were fused to the seat of his pants. Pants he’d worn until they could almost stand up by themselves. Finally, he could have a bath, clean clothes, a shave, a hot meal, and a real bed. In that order.

But the long ride had been worth it. He was bone weary, but he could sense that indefinable excitement he always felt when he was about to catch his prey. Peter Graham and his daughter had to be just ahead. He’d been chasing this gang for too many years—through hard winters, mostly mild summers, and he’d seen a lot of the territory in the United States. But this was the farthest south they’d ventured. Denton, Texas, was the end of the line. For him and for the Grahams—in more ways than one.

As he approached, the haze hovering on the horizon solidified into a nice enough town, but Jac hoped it wouldn’t take long to bring the Grahams to justice. He wanted to get on with his life, and he couldn’t until he had finished this one thing. Although he was only thirty years old, he felt ancient. He’d seen enough of the seamy side of life to age him beyond his years. Criminals and their evil deeds had hardened him so much he barely knew who he was anymore. Certainly not the idealistic young man who became a Deputy U.S. Marshal all those years ago. He didn’t even know where he belonged. Maybe when he finished this final arrest, he could find out. For the first time in over ten years, he could have a life of his own.

But he didn’t dare take his mind off his prize. This arrest had to come before anything else. He wouldn’t saddle any woman with a man who was hardly ever be home. He would really retire from hunting criminals and maybe find some kind of business he’d enjoy. He had plenty of money stashed away to buy or start one. He didn’t use much money while he’d been trying to catch this slippery weasel, who preyed on unsuspecting, upstanding citizens.

Because of his obsession to catch Peter Graham and his daughter, he was no longer a marshal. The U.S. Marshal in Washington, D.C., had given him a choice, give up this quest or turn in his badge. Jac knew his boss thought the ultimatum would make him back down. With great reluctance, he’d removed the star with the circle around it, the badge that made him official. Since then, he’d been on his own as he followed the trail of this confidence man and his family.
Good thing he’d saved so much of his pay over the years, and his needs were negligible. A pile of his money remained safe in a bank back East, waiting for him to get to the point where he could start living a real life. He wouldn’t have to worry about finances while he established himself. That thought brought a stiff smile to his face.

          Hurricane Hell: Here Are 5 of the Most Recent Devastating Storms Linked to Climate Change      Cache   Translate Page      
The new normal is frightening.

Only two weeks after the government of Puerto Rico raised the official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975—making it the deadliest hurricane to occur last year—North and South Carolina residents are evacuating coastal areas in preparation for Hurricane Florence, which is expected to deliver winds of 130 miles per hour and be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas since the 1980s. Hurricanes have been pounding the southeastern U.S. for centuries, but in the era of climate change, they are becoming more frequent and more devastating.

Meteorologists are seeing an increase in the what is known as “rapid intensification,” meaning that a storm’s maximum sustained winds increase by at least 35 mph within a 24-hour period. According to data from the National Hurricane Center, there were, on average, ten cases of rapid intensification per year between 1982 and 1994—whereas between 2005 and 2017, 20 cases per year was the average. In 2017, the National Hurricane Center reported 40 cases of rapid intensification.

Meteorologists have five separate categories for hurricanes, with Category 1 being the least severe and Category 5 being the most severe. Florence appears to be reaching the Carolinas as a Category 4, but it could intensify to Category 5. And when rapid intensification—a phenomenon encouraged by climate change—occurs and a hurricane goes from Category 1 to Category 4 or 5 in less than 24 hours, there is little time to prepare.  

Here are five of the most devastating hurricanes that occurred in recent years.

1. Hurricane Katrina

In August 2015, Hurricane Katrina originated in the Bahamas before making its way to the U.S. A hurricane varies in intensity, and at its worst, Katrina became a Category 5 storm. The National Hurricane Center attributed a total of 1836 deaths to Katrina, with up to 1577 deaths in Louisiana—and the flooding was so severe in New Orleans that 80% of the city was under water.

Veteran reporter Mark Schleifstein, who covered Katrina for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, witnessed Katrina first hand and has some grim advice for residents of the Carolinas who are refusing to evacuate for Hurricane Florence: “write your Social Security number on your arm, so officials can identify your body.”

2. Hurricane Harvey

2017 was a terrible year for hurricanes, and one of the worst was Hurricane Harvey—which affected parts of Latin America (including Nicaragua and Honduras) but was especially devastating around the Texas Gulf Coast. Of the 108 deaths caused by Harvey in late August/early September 2017, 103 were in Texas. Some weather stations in Texas reported more than four feet of rain, and Houston suffered some of the worst flooding in the city’s history. 

3. Hurricane Maria

Only a few weeks after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas Gulf Coast, the Caribbean was, in September 2017, pounded by Hurricane Maria—which reached Category 5 at its worst. Maria caused some deaths in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Guadalupe, but the worst damage by far occurred in Puerto Rico. Of the more than 3,050 people killed by Maria, most of the fatalities occurred in Puerto Rico—although 65 people were killed on the island of Dominica, which didn’t have time to adequately prepare thanks to rapid intensification. A year later, Puerto Rico is still recovering from Maria.

Maria is a perfect example of how bad climate change is making rapid intensification: the storm went from Category 1 to Category 5 in only about half a day.

4. Hurricane Sandy

In the U.S., hurricanes have been most likely to affect the southern states.

Floridians are more likely to experience hurricanes than residents of New Jersey or Massachusetts, but that doesn’t mean that residents of the northeastern U.S. are immune to them—not by a longshot. And in 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused billions of dollars in damage, pounding the New Jersey Shore and the coast of Maryland as well as New York City. Atlantic City was evacuated, parts of Manhattan suffered flooding, and the mass transit systems of NYC and Philadelphia (which is about 60 miles inland) were shut down.

When Kevin E. Trenberth (a senior climatologist for the National Center for Atmospheric Research) was asked whether or not Hurricane Sandy was affected by climate change, he responded that while the answer was yes, Sandy was hardly unique in that regard. In 2012, Trenberth asserted, “All weather events are affected by climate change because the environment in which they occur is warmer and moister than it used to be.”

5. Hurricane Ike

In September 2008, Hurricane Ike caused at least 195 deaths and affected a wide area ranging from Cuba, Haiti (where at least 74 deaths occurred) and the Bahamas to the Florida Panhandle, the Mississippi Coast and the Texas Gulf Coast. Altogether, Ike is believed to have caused about $38 billion in damage.

A Villanova University basketball announcer's son who was arrested for flipping a car after the Philadelphia Eagles' Super Bowl win won't do any jail time. Court records show 20-year-old John Rigsby was recommended for a yearlong accelerated rehabilitative probationary program on March 16. Once he completes the program Gabe Jackson Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/gabe-jackson-jersey-cheap) , his arrest record can be expunged. A message seeking comment from his lawyer wasn't returned Monday. His father is Robert "Whitey" Rigsby, the longtime broadcaster for the team that's heading to the Final Four. Videos on social media show the younger Rigsby, wearing a white Nick Foles jersey Adolphus Washington Jersey (http://www.billscheapstore.com/adolphus-washington-jersey-cheap) , pounding his chest in celebration after flipping the car. Pockets of victory celebrations turned unruly last month. Rowdy fans smashed windows at department stores and toppled some of the city's famously greased light poles. The Cleveland Browns traded tight end Randall Telfer to the Kansas City Chiefs for defensive end Dadi Nicolas. A sixth-round pick in 2015, Telfer is the sixth veteran dealt by new Browns general manager John Dorsey, who continues to remold a team that has just one victory over the past two seasons. Telfer started 19 games for Cleveland and was used primarily as a blocker. He caught five passes for 40 yards. After he was selected in 2015 Harrison Phillips Jersey (http://www.billscheapstore.com/harrison-phillips-jersey-cheap) , Telfer sat out his rookie season while recovering from a foot injury. Nicolas has history with Dorsey, who was Kansas City's GM from 2013-16. He selected the 6-foot-3, 235-pound Nicolas in the 2016 sixth round. The 25-year-old Nicolas appeared in 11 games as a rookie Michael Strahan Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/michael-strahan-jersey-cheap) , but injured his knee in the regular-season finale and sat out 2017. Since joining the Browns in December, Dorsey has traded quarterbacks DeShone Kizer, Kevin Hogan and Cody Kessler Jarius Wright Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/jarius-wright-jersey-cheap) , cornerback Jason McCourty and defensive tackle Danny Shelton. The Browns also claimed linebacker Jermaine Grace off waivers from Indianapolis on Wednesday. The 6-1, 225-pounder signed with Atlanta last year as an undrafted free agent. He appeared in five games on special teams with the Falcons and six with the Colts. Luka Doncic Jersey (http://www.basketballofficialauthentic.com ba-jerseys/dallas-mavericks/luka-doncic-jersey)

The Patriots have had a knack for getting sometimes unexpected production out of late-round draft picks and undrafted free agents during Bill Belichick’s tenure. From Tom Brady to Julian Edelman to Danny Amendola to last season’s Super Bowl star James White Joe Montana Jersey (http://www.chiefscheapstore.com/joe-montana-jersey-cheap) , the list is long and lauded. This season has been no exception with 2011 seventh-round draft pick Lawrence Guy and Ricky Jean Francois, a seventh-round pick in 2009, each providing contributions that have helped solidify New England’s defensive line that has thrived during the second half of 2017. The Patriots want to make life as miserable as possible for Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles in Sunday’s Super Bowl. It puts the spotlight on Guy and Jean Francois, with Deatrich Wise (concussion) and Malcolm Brown (foot) both dealing with injuries. Guy said experiencing his first Super Bowl has validated the path he took to get here. ”My journey’s still going,” he said. ”I wasn’t thinking about this a couple of years ago. I was just thinking about doing what I could do to play harder and harder, study film and stay on the team and contribute. But now I’m blessed to be here.” Guy started 15 games during the regular season at either defensive tackle or defensive end, and he’s started both playoff games. Jean Francois appeared in six games after signing with the Patriots in early November and started New England’s AFC championship game win while playing defensive end. ”My appreciation is high for this,” said Jean Francois, 31, who came to the Patriots following stops in San Francisco Tyreek Hill Jersey (http://www.chiefscheapstore.com/tyreek-hill-jersey-cheap) , Indianapolis, Washington and Green Bay. ”I’m having fun. Clowning around with my teammates. Sitting down, watching film. Just appreciating the moment.” Jean Francois will be getting his second shot at a Super Bowl. He was on the 49ers team that lost to Baltimore in the Super Bowl to cap the 2012 season. It’s an opportunity he acknowledged he wasn’t sure he’d get again. ”It’s crazy. I never thought there’d be a point when I’d be starting in the AFC championship game again,” Jean Francois said. ”I started in one for the Colts (2014 season), but the next year I was gone. But to be on a team like this and be able to start again in a short period of time. That shows you how much trust and how much I had to do to be in that position.” Since starting with Green Bay in 2011, each of Guy’s subsequent stops in Indianapolis and San Diego ended with him getting waived. He had his longest run after being picked up by Baltimore in 2014. He played 11 games for the Ravens in 2014, and appeared in every game over the next two seasons. The Patriots grabbed him in free agency last March, signing him to a four-year, $20 million deal. He’s had one of his best seasons so far, starting 15 games and finishing with a career-best 34 tackles and a sack. Guy said he’s never been deterred by the ”ups and downs” he’s experienced. ”It can happen at the beginning of your career Dean Lowry Jersey (http://www.packerscheapstore.com/dean-lowry-jersey-cheap) , it can happen at the end of your career. But sooner or later you’re probably gonna get waived here and there,” he said. Defensive coordinator Matt Patricia says Guy’s attention to detail has allowed him to play several different positions in the Patriots’ system. Patricia said Guy’s been able to help not only against the run, but he’s been able to transition ”into a little bit more pass rush into the pocket and push and be up in the quarterback’s face.” Even in his sixth season, Guy said he’s tried to keep learning from older players around him. ”Everything I’ve gone through made me more of a man and made me better as a player,” Guy said. ”To experience this type of week is great. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime situation that you can never get back.” — After years of simply trying to reduce the number of kickoffs, changes finally are being made to the kickoff play in an effort to make it safer. So how safe does the “most dangerous play in the game” have to become before the NFL will choose permanently to keep it? In a new online question-and-answer session with fans, Packers CEO Mark Murphy offers a summary regarding the current status of the kickoff. “As we鈥檝e discussed here before, the kickoff is by far the most dangerous play in the game,” Murphy writes. “You are five times more likely to suffer a concussion on a kickoff than a play from scrimmage. The kickoff is so dangerous because the collisions are often at full speed. I was part of the meeting this week in New York. The discussions were very productive. The special teams coaches came forward with a number of recommendations that should make the play safer. The recommendations included eliminating the two-man wedge, eliminating the running start for the kickoff coverage team Terence Newman Jersey (http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/terence-newman-jersey-cheap) , and requiring eight players on the return team to be within 15 yards of their restraining line. The changes should make the play more like the punt, where blockers are running alongside the players on the coverage unit. We鈥檙e very hopeful that these changes will result in fewer injuries on a kickoff, but we will continue to monitor this closely. We鈥檙e hopeful that these change will allow us to keep the kickoff in the game.” Murphy, who previously has made it clear that the kickoff play remains on a “short leash” and that it could still go away, doesn’t elaborate on how safe the kickoff must become in order to save it. But if the concussion rate during kickoffs remains five times greater than in normal scrimmage plays, there’s surely an ideal ratio that the NFL hopes to achieve. Is it 1:1? Or is 2:1 good enough? No one has provided that information, yet. That said, there’s a good chance that this is less about reducing concussions and more about removing from the game a play that carries with it the greatest risk of a catastrophic — and possibly fatal — injury. Nearly nine years ago, then-Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer created a stir with a matter-of-fact assessment of the risk of playing NFL football:聽 鈥淭he truth of the matter is . . . somebody is going to die here in the NFL. It鈥檚 going to happen.鈥?The “most dangerous play in the game” presents the greatest risk of that, since players who are moving in opposite directions at full speed and who dip their helmets at impact risk the kind of upper spinal cord injury that will induce paralysis and Art Shell Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/art-shell-jersey-cheap) , even worse, end life. Think of the consequences to the NFL if a player pays the ultimate price. Congress instantly would convene hearings and commence drafting legislation. Debates would emerge about the morality of watching football (those debates already have popped up from time to time regarding chronic the health risks of the game). Eventually, a federal commission with the power to oversee and regulate football could emerge, which likely is the we-know-what’s-best-for-us NFL’s worst-case business scenario. So even if avoiding a fatality isn’t the impetus for the ongoing examination of the kickoff, it should be. And it’s no surprise that the NFL won’t say “we don’t want someone to die on the field” when addressing its concerns about the play. The fact that people in the league routinely call it “the most dangerous play in the game” has to give the league’s lawyers nearly as many chest pains as an FBI raid on their offices, apartments, and/or hotel rooms. If people like Murphy were to admit that the league fears a fatality — and if a fatality were to happen — it could be game over, literally.

Adrian Peterson trains in Houston during the offseason Marshawn Lynch Jersey (http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/marshawn-lynch-jersey-cheap) , even opening a megagym in his adopted hometown a couple of years ago. So it’s no surprise the star running back would love to play his 12th season in Houston. Peterson, 33, mentioned the Texans and four other teams as possible fits in a recent appearance on ESPN’s NFL Live. “You know obviously I’ve mentioned Houston a couple of times,” Peterson said. “I feel like Green Bay wouldn’t be a bad look as well. Carolina. There’s some options out there. You know Miami. Down there in [Los Angeles]. That would be a nice look, too, with Todd Gurley. You see around the league they have a two-back system. Guys are not really not pounding the ball 20, 30 times a game, so I think that leaves the door open for a couple of opportunities for me.” Peterson also recently said he would be open to a return to New Orleans. Peterson has posted his workout videos, hoping teams take notice. In truth Durham Smythe Jersey (http://www.dolphinscheapstore.com/durham-smythe-jersey-cheap) , Peterson likely would have interest in any team that shows interest in him. Drew Brees passed for 376 yards and two touchdowns, and the New Orleans Saints held off Carolina’s late comeback bid to seal a 31-26 victory in their NFC wild-card game on Sunday. The Panthers had a first down on the Saints 26-yard line with 58 seconds left, but heavy pressure by All-Pro defensive end Cameron Jordan a couple plays later induced an intentional grounding penalty on Carolina quarterback Cam Newton, making it third-and-25 on the Saints 34 and a required 10-second runoff left 22 seconds on the clock. After an incompletion in the end zone on third down, Vonn Bell sacked Newton on a safety blitz, ensuring the Saints (12-5) swept all three meetings with Carolina (11-6) this season, in addition to winning their first playoff game in four seasons. Brees’ touchdowns went for 80-yards to Ted Ginn and 9 yards to tight end Josh Hill. Fullback Zach line and running back Alvin Kamara each ran for short touchdowns. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) – Blake Bortles put together one decent drive all day, doing as much with his legs as his arm Malcolm Mitchell Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/malcolm-mitchell-jersey-cheap) , and the defensive-minded Jacksonville Jaguars eked out an ugly and sometimes unwatchable 10-3 victory against the Buffalo Bills in an AFC wild-card game Sunday. In the postseason for the first time since January 2008, the third-seeded Jaguars (11-6) advanced to play at No. 2 seed Pittsburgh next week. The sixth-seeded Bills (9-8) will head home after ending the longest, current playoff drought in North American professional sports. Bortles was a big reason Jacksonville won the game and a big reason it was so close. This was far from a passing clinic. It was more like a painful exercise in overcoming poor passing. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Marcus Mariota led Tennessee to three second-half touchdowns, incredibly throwing one of his TD passes to himself , and the Titans rallied from a 21-3 deficit to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-21 on Saturday for their first playoff win in 14 years. Mariota threw for 205 yards and two scores, including the 22-yard go-ahead strike to Eric Decker with just over six minutes left that ushered the Titans into the divisional round of the playoffs. They’ll head to New England or Pittsburgh next week. Derrick Henry had a career-high 156 yards rushing and another score for Tennessee (10-7), while a defense that was fileted by Alex Smith and the Chiefs (10-7) during the first half pitched a shutout in the second half – dooming the Kansas City franchise to another humiliating postseason defeat. LOS ANGELES (AP) – Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons showed the upstart Los Angeles Rams what playoff poise is all about. Ryan passed for 218 yards and hit Julio Jones for an 8-yard touchdown with 5:48 to play, and the defending NFC champion Falcons advanced from the wild-card round with a methodical 26-13 victory over the Rams on Saturday night. Devonta Freeman rushed for an early score and Matt Bryant kicked four field goals for the Falcons (11-6) Brandon Coleman Jersey (http://www.saintscheapstore.com/brandon-coleman-jersey-cheap) , who spoiled the Rams’ first playoff game in 13 years while showing off the postseason poise they earned from last season’s journey to the Super Bowl. Atlanta never trailed at the Coliseum while winning playoff games in consecutive seasons for the first time in franchise history. The Falcons advanced to face the top-seeded Eagles on Saturday in Philadelphia. NBA LOS ANGELES (AP) – Brandon Ingram had 20 points and seven assists, and the Los Angeles Lakers snapped a nine-game losing streak with a 132-113 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night. Julius Randle had 15 points and nine rebounds in this sixth straight start, while Lonzo Ball finished with 13 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. Los Angeles led by as many as 26 points – its biggest margin this season – and enjoyed a strong shooting night. The Lakers made 55.8 percent of their field goals, and shot 44.4 percent from 3-point range. Even free throws went in for the Lakers, who came into Sunday as the worst team in the league in that category. Los Angeles made 20 of 25. COLLEGE BASKETBALL COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Keita Bates-Diop scored a career-high 32 points, and Ohio State stunned No. 1 Michigan State 80-64 on Sunday. The overachieving Buckeyes put together an electrifying 12-0 run to finish the first half and kept their foot on the gas to give first-year coach Chris Holtmann a signature win. Ohio State (13-4, 4-0 Big Ten) won for its third straight in taking down the best team it is likely to see this season. The mistake-prone Spartans (15-2 Art Shell Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/art-shell-jersey-cheap) , 3-1) lost for the first time in the last 15 games, dating back to a seven-point loss to then-No. 1 Duke on Nov. 14. GOLF KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) – A new year brought out the best in Dustin Johnson, who powered his way to an 8-under 65 and an eight-shot victory in the Sentry Tournament of Champions. In a field that featured the top five players in the world, Johnson made a strong opening statement that a No. 1 ranking he has held for nearly a year might be difficult to take away. Johnson stretched a two-shot lead to six shots at the turn, then delivered the biggest moment of the week with a drive on the par-4 12th hole that stopped 6 inches from the cup for a tap-in eagle. He also drove the par-4 14th hole. He finished at 24-under 268. The eight-shot margin of victory was his largest ever, and it was one short of the tournament record set by David Duval since this event moved to Kapalua in 1999. Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016. Football Jerseys Wholesale (http://www.officialusafootballs.com)

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Will Hernandez Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/will-hernandez-jersey-cheap) , the singer Ciara, have joined the effort to bring Major League Baseball to Portland. The Oregonian/OregonLive reports that Portland Diamond Project, the company leading the push, announced Friday that the husband-and-wife celebrities have each invested individually as "owner/investors" in the project. The Diamond Project's leadership has stressed that its effort will take time, estimating an opening day in Portland would come in 2022 at the earliest. MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred has called Portland a candidate to acquire a franchise whether by expansion, which hasn't happened in 20 years, or relocation. Though Wilson is an NFL quarterback, he has a connection to baseball. He played in the minor leagues while in college and practiced with the Texas Rangers during spring training in March. The last round of this year’s Subway Series has been delayed. The season finale between the New York Mets and New York Yankees was postponed because of rain Sunday night and will be made up on Aug. 13 at 7:05 p.m., previously an off day for both teams. The Yankees will be in the middle of a long homestand anyway Alec Ogletree Jersey (http://www.giantscheapstore.com/alec-ogletree-jersey-cheap) , although the makeup game means they’ll now play 20 days in a row during that stretch. The Mets, meanwhile, will make a one-game pit stop in the Bronx between trips to Miami and Baltimore on a lengthy road swing that ends in Philadelphia. With steady rain falling, a tarp covered the infield all evening and play never began. The game was called about an hour after the scheduled 8:05 p.m. start. It was the 42nd postponement in the majors this year, already more than all of last season. Mets ace Jacob deGrom (5-4), who leads the majors with a 1.68 ERA, had been slated to pitch against Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka (7-2, 4.54). But thanks to the bad weather, Aaron Judge and the Bronx Bombers were spared the task of facing deGrom Obi Melifonwu Jersey (http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/obi-melifonwu-jersey-cheap) , who is 0-2 with an 8.03 ERA in two career starts at Yankee Stadium. ”He’s a tough customer, obviously. A great pitcher,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone said. ”Look, any time we take the field we feel like we have a real good chance no matter who’s out there, especially at home. So you don’t like stacking up these doubleheaders and now a makeup game and those type of things. But obviously, tonight was a tough matchup for sure.” Boone said All-Star righty Luis Severino will stay on his regular turn Monday night at Tampa Bay, with Tanaka going Tuesday. Severino had already traveled down to Florida ahead of the team to get a normal night’s sleep. Veteran left-hander CC Sabathia will be pushed back from Tuesday to Friday, when he will pitch at home against lowly Kansas City on his bobblehead night. ”I think it will be fun,” Sabathia said. ”My mom’s excited about it Sony Michel Jersey (http://www.patriotscheapstore.com/sony-michel-jersey-cheap) , my grandmother’s excited. So I think it will be good.” Sabathia turned 38 on Saturday and the Yankees wanted to take the opportunity to give him extra rest. ”It really benefits him,” Boone said. ”Just with his knee and maintenance.” Sabathia gets lubricant injections to help alleviate discomfort in his troublesome knee. He received one right before the All-Star break and said he thought it was his third one this season. ”The more time I can give that thing and just let the medicine move around, it will react better,” Sabathia said. ”Any time you get a chance to get some rest, I think it’s key – especially for me at this point in the season. I’m welcoming the rest for sure.” The second-place Yankees (63-34) are five games behind major league-leading Boston in the AL East, three in the loss column. Sabathia said it would be ”shocking” if they don’t make a deal before the July 31 trade deadline. ”We always do something,” he explained. ”But I think we have the guys in there if they don’t do anything to get it done.” Last in the NL East, the Mets rescheduled deGrom for Monday night at home against San Diego. Zack Wheeler had originally been slated to start that game. The crosstown rivals split two games over the weekend, giving the Yankees a 3-2 lead in their six-game season series. ROSTER MOVE The Yankees recalled RHP Giovanny Gallegos from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. TRAINER’S ROOM Mets: 3B Todd Frazier (strained left rib cage muscle) is hitting off a tee and could begin ”more intense baseball activities” in the next few days if all goes well Deion Jones Jersey (http://www.falconscheapstore.com/deion-jones-jersey-cheap) , manager Mickey Callaway said. … RF Jay Bruce (right hip) is feeling better and might start baseball activities in the next couple of days, according to Callaway. Yankees: Rookie 2B Gleyber Torres, sidelined since straining his right hip on July 4, is expected to play rehab games Monday and Tuesday at Class A Tampa before rejoining the Yankees on Wednesday at Tampa Bay. — New York Jets Elite Jerseys (http://www.officialusafootballs.com ew-york-jets)

          WEST BROMWICH, England - Tottenham kept the pressure on the top four of the Premier L      Cache   Translate Page      
WEST BROMWICH, England - Tottenham kept the pressure on the top four of the Premier League after a 3-0 win at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday with Harry Kane scoring two goals. Erik Haula Jersey .The 21-year-old Kane took his seasons tally to 20 after Christian Eriksen opened the scoring at The Hawthorns.Eriksen struck after just six minutes with a trademark free kick, maintaining his fine recent form for the League Cup finalists.Kane doubled the lead in the 15th and grabbed the third from the penalty spot in the 64th, condemning Tony Pulis to his first defeat as West Brom boss.Tottenham is provisionally fifth with 40 points from 23 games.The hosts put up little resistance as Spurs carved through them at will in the early stages, getting their first chance after Mousa Dembele was brought down outside the area by Claudio Yacob.There was little doubt Eriksen would shoot but Ben Foster still seemed slow to move. It was the first goal the Baggies had conceded in three Premier League games since Pulis took charge and they were reeling from another soon after.This time Kane applied the finish after picking up a defence-splitting pass from Dembele. Kane turned inside Andre Wisdom and smashed the ball in before Foster had chance to react.West Brom responded positively to the double setback. Saido Berahino and Victor Anichebe combined well before Chris Brunt shot straight at Hugo Lloris from long range.That gave Lloris a first taste of the action before he was called upon to tip over a fine effort from James Morrison.Spurs goalkeeping captain, back in the side after missing their three successive cup games in the past fortnight, then did even better to deny Yacob from close range following an elaborate free-kick routine.Joleon Lescott headed over, Anichebe shot just wide and Craig Dawson went even closer, heading against the bar, as West Brom stepped up the pressure.West Brom could not carry their momentum into the second half and Spurs got the chance to increase their lead just after the hour as Lescott slid in to block a cross from Kyle Walker and the ball struck his arm.Kane was emphatic from the spot, sending Foster the wrong way with a perfect shot just inside the left post. Golden Knights Jerseys For Sale . The 25-year-old native of Milford, Conn., has 18 points in 41 games this season. The five-foot-eight 166-pound centre also has 28 points (10-18) in 15 games with AHL Oklahoma City. Oscar Lindberg Jersey . Hemsky left the Oilers Tuesday night loss to the Dallas Stars in the second period and did not return. Through 48 games this season, Hemsky has seven goals and a total of 24 points. http://www.authenticgoldenknightsshopnhl.com/ .The Dallas Cowboys released Sam from the practice squad Tuesday, dropping the rush end as they prepare for several potential reinforcements to return to the defensive line.Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Former Ranger Ryan Callahan had two goals and an assist against his ex-team to spoil Martin St. Louis return to Tampa and help the Lightning to a 4-3 victory over New York. The pregame buildup was solely centered on St. Louis first game in Amalie Arena since the Lightnings all-time leading scorer requested and was granted a trade to the Rangers on March 5. However, it was Callahan -- the key player Tampa Bay received in the blockbuster swap -- who earned the nights First Star as St. Louis was held off the scoresheet. Steven Stamkos made quite an impact as well, notching a goal and two assists in the Lightnings fourth win in their last six outings. Ben Bishop finished with 16 saves in the triumph. New York entered the anticipated matchup off shutout wins over Philadelphia and Montreal, but Henrik Lundqvist stopped just 25-of-29 shots and St. Louis was mostly a non-factor. Rick Nash did record a goal and an assist for the Rangers, with Mats Zuccarello and Dan Boyle also scoring in defeat. Callahan accounted for the first two of three consecutive Tampa Bay goals that erased a 2-1 deficit late in the opening period, during which St. Louis received a generally positive ovation from the home crowd as a video saluting his 12 1/2-year tenure with the Lightning was shown on the scoreboard. A double-minor penalty to Nash led to Callahans initial tally of the night, with the former Rangers captain crashing the net to re-direct a long drive from Jason Garrison 2:26 prior to the first intermission. Callahans second came midway through the second period off a pinpoint pass from Stamkos, who wheeled around the New York net to set up his teammate for a successful wrister in close that put the Lightning up 3-2. Clayton Stoner Jersey. Boyle nearly tied it just seconds into the third with a blast that struck the post, but the Rangers later fell behind by two when Matt Carles point shot deflected off Kucherovs skate and trickled by Lundqvist with 10:22 to go. Nash got New York back within one when he turned a giveaway from Tampas Andrej Sustr into his 15th goal of the season with 7:11 left to play. The Rangers didnt threaten thereafter, though, as the Lightning held on for the two points. Stamkos quickly put to rest any hopes of a third straight Rangers shutout, with the star center setting off a flurry of first-period goals by rifling a shot over Lundqvists left shoulder on a Tampa power play just 5:25 into the contest. New York answered just over 3 1/2 minutes later when Sustr fanned on a clearing attempt, creating a 2-on-1 between Nash and Zuccarello in which Bishop had no chance to turn away the latters attempt. The Lightning took a too-many-men-on-the-ice penalty less than two minutes after Zuccarellos score, with the Rangers converting the chance on Boyles one-timer off a Derek Stepan feed. Game Notes Callahan also had two goals in the first meeting between the clubs since the trade, a 5-1 Lightning win at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 17 ... The Lightning are now 13-0-0 following the trade when Callahan scores at least one goal ... Nashs assist on Zuccarellos marker was the 300th of his career ... Lightning forward Alex Killorn extended his career-best point streak to six games with an assist on Callahans second goal ... Boyles goal was the free- agent pickups first point as a Ranger ...

          LOS ANGELES -- Steve Mason posted his second shutout in three games with 35 saves and      Cache   Translate Page      
LOS ANGELES -- Steve Mason posted his second shutout in three games with 35 saves and Wayne Simmonds scored his 100th NHL goal, leading the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. Blaine Gabbert Jersey . It was the 22nd career shutout and third this season for Mason, who stopped 33 shots in a 5-0 win against Detroit last Tuesday after getting pulled by coach Craig Berube in two of his previous three starts. Mason got a break with less than 3 1/2 minutes left, when Justin Williams tried a wraparound and hit the left post. Claude Giroux added his 17th goal on a power play with 1:58 left, converting a cross-ice pass at the left of the crease from Scott Hartnell while Matt Greene was serving an interference penalty. The Flyers have scored a power-play goal in six straight games. The Kings have scored fewer than three goals in 16 of 20 games since their 25-8-4 start, and are 5-13-2 during that stretch with five shutout losses. They have only three goals in their past six games combined, all of them by Anze Kopitar. The Flyers had managed only five shots on net before Simmonds got his 18th goal at 7:48 of the first period. Jonathan Quick, who faced only 13 shots, overplayed Vincent Lecavalier at the right of the crease along with Kings defenceman Jake Muzzin following a turnover by the Kings in their zone, and Simmonds slammed the puck into a wide-open net. The Kings Robyn Regehr played in his 1,000th NHL regular-season game, becoming the 98th defenceman in NHL history to reach that plateau, and the club marked the occasion with a pregame ceremony. Regehrs first game was Oct. 28, 1999, with the Calgary Flames at Ottawa. Among those taking part in Saturdays ceremony were former Calgary teammate Craig Conroy and Regehrs grandmother, who wore a Flames jersey with his old No. 28. It was the first meeting between the Kings and Flyers since Oct. 15, 2011, when Los Angeles won 3-2. Saturday also was a reunion for Kings centre Jeff Carter, whom the Flyers traded to Columbus on June 23, 2011 -- the same day they dealt Richards to Los Angeles. Eight months later, the Kings acquired Richards by sending Jack Johnson to the Blue Jackets. Carter and Richards led Los Angeles to its first Stanley Cup title in 2012, two years after helping the Flyers get to the finals. NOTES: Richards has one goal in his past 32 games, and that one came on the power play. Carter has no goals in his past six games, following a four-game goal streak. ... Kings C Colin Fraser is one of seven forwards in the league to have played 30 or more games this season without scoring a goal -- and average at least nine minutes of ice time. ... The Kings are 19-3-0 when scoring more than two goals. ... Among the numerous Kings-Flyers connections is fan favourite Ian Laperriere, who played eight-plus seasons with Los Angeles and is now an assistant coach with Philadelphia. Dion Lewis Jersey . As TSN reported Thursday, the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport is under intense pressure from the federal government to focus drug testing on athletes who compete in international events representing Canada. Since funding for the tests has been frozen and the cost of testing can eclipse $1,000 per test, university athletes in a number of sports are being tested less often. Malcolm Butler Titans Jersey . The English Football Association had charged the German right back with violent conduct after retrospectively reviewing video evidence of an incident that was missed by match officials at Craven Cottage on Saturday. http://www.titansstoreonline.com/Black-5...ns-Jersey/ . Murray, the defending champion and No. 3 seed, claimed his first match win at Queens in 2005 and went on to win the Wimbledon warmup three times. But he failed to take advantage of eight set points after leading the first-set tiebreaker 6-2, and Stepanek survived to convert with his second set point. The Bruins and Stars hooked up for a blockbuster summer trade, a seven-player deal, headlined by a third-year scoring forward who was the second overall pick in the 2010 Draft. Numbers Game breaks down the deal sending Tyler Seguin and Rich Peverley to Dallas for a package of players including Loui Eriksson and three prospects. The Stars Get: C/RW Tyler Seguin, C/RW Rich Peverley and D Ryan Button. Seguin, 21, was maligned for his 2013 playoff performance, when he scored one goal in 22 games, yet has 45 goals and 99 points over the last two seasons. His 36 even-strength goals over the last two years is tied for 14th. Despite that production, at that age, the Bruins were definitely not satisfied with Seguin and once his name had appeared in trade rumours, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli told the Boston Globe that he hoped it would serve as a wake-up call, that Seguin would, "Become more of a professional." Chiarelli continued, "And you know what? I can say that about a lot of 21-year-olds. I know he got criticized for playing on the periphery and all that stuff. He did. Hes got to commit to being a professional and focusing on the game." When Seguin is focused on the game, hes a dynamic offensive talent, with the speed and shot to be among the most dangerous offensive players in the league. Like many of the Bruins top players, Seguin dominated in terms of puck possession over the last two seasons. Moving to Dallas, Seguin figures to pair with Jamie Benn on the Stars top line. Seguin has played right wing for the vast majority of his time in Boston, so an opportunity to play in the middle will be different. He played centre in junior, but hasnt yet had that responsibility in the NHL. Leading right wing candidates could be first-round pick Valeri Nichushkin, veterans Ray Whitney or Erik Cole or perhaps another addition to the Stars roster this summer. Seguin also figures to see a boost in ice time. He played just under 17 minutes per game over the past two seasons in Boston, but could easily see that push closer to 20 minutes per game with the Stars. Seguins six-year, $34-million contract extension kicks in this season, a $5.75-million cap hit per season. If hes a number one centre, scoring 70-plus points per season, thats a very reasonable return on investment. If he becomes better than a point-per-game guy, then thats a big win for Big D. Peverley turns 31 next week and is coming off a poor season in which he, and Bostons third line in general, struggled. Since being picked up on waivers by Atlanta, from Nashville, in 2008-2009, Peverley has 191 points in 307 games (a pace of 51 points per 82 games), but managed just 18 points in 47 games last season thanks, in part, to a career-low shooting percentage of 6.3% (his 5v5 on-ice shooting percentage was an abysmal, and unlucky, 4.63%). Where Peverley remains excellent, is in the faceoff circle, as hes won at least 55.0% of his draws in each of the last four seasons, including 58.4% last season, which ranked ninth among players with at least 200 face-offs in 2013. With the Stars, Peverley will fit into a second-line centre role, where he will be expected to contribute more offensively. The opportunity will certainly be there for Peverley to bounce back. Part of the incentive for Boston to move Peverley is that his contract still has two years, at a cap hit of $3.25-million per season, remaining. If he was producing, that would be one thing, but for a Bruins team without huge cap room, it made sense to include Peverleys contract in order to gain more financial flexibility heading into free agency. Ryan Button is only 22, but has spent two pro seasons splitting time between the AHL and ECHL, so his inclusion in the deal is more about keeping room on the Bruins reserve list than anything else. Perhaps Button gets some regular work in the AHL with Texas but, barring a sudden turnaround in his new locale, hes not going to be a factor when evaluating this trade. Dallas took a swing for the fences, going after a young player who has already shown that he can score in the NHL. If Seguin pans out as a first line scoring centre -- and he should -- then it will be hard to argue that they didnt get what they wanted out of the deal. The Bruins Get: LW/RW Loui Eriksson, RW Reilly Smith, D Joe Morrow and RW Matt Fraser. Eriksson, who turns 28 in a couple weeks, haas been a strong two-way player and regarded as underrated for so long that hes probably closer to properly rated now. Bennie Logan Titans Jersey. Hes able to play both wings, in all situations, and has logged just under 20 minutes per game for the Stars over the last five seasons, a time during which hes scored 130 goals, the same as Alex Burrows, two more than Patrick Kane and two fewer than Martin St. Louis. With vacancies abound on right wing in Boston (in addition to Seguin and Peverley departing, Jaromir Jagr and Nathan Horton are free agents), Eriksson is likely to move into a spot alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, one of the leagues most formidable two-way lines. Erikssons contract runs for three more seasons and while the salary is a little higher ($4.6-million this year, $4.5-million in the last two years), the cap hit is an economical $4.25-million. In addition to being a quality player, Eriksson provides value relative to the salary cap. A 22-year-old winger who scored 58 goals in 77 games in his last two collegiate seasons at Miami, Reilly Smith had a solid start to his pro career, scoring 35 points in 45 AHL games, before adding nine points in 37 games, along with strong possession stats, at the NHL level. Ideally, for the Bruins, Smith would be able to step in and fill a scoring role next season, but that could be asking too much from an unproven young player. Smith is still on an entry-level deal that will pay him $900,000 in the NHL. Acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Brenden Morrow trade last season, 20-year-old Joe Morrow had a bit of a rocky first pro season. The 23rd overall pick in 2011, Morrow is an offensive defenceman who needs time to round out the rest of his game if hes going to make the jump. He offers upside as a puck-moving, point-producing defenceman, but isnt ready to provide immediate help to a Stanley Cup contender. A winger with good size who scored 70 goals in 135 AHL games over the last two seasons, Matt Fraser has also chipped in three points in 13 games with Dallas over the past two years. Frasers defensive game could use some work as well, but with continued improvement in that regard, he could give the Bruins another option up front. Sending a $9-million salary cap hit to Dallas, while taking back $4.25-million (not counting Smiths two-way deal), gives the Bruins room to maneuver financially. According to http://www.capgeek.com, they have nearly $56.9-million committed to the 2013-2014 salary cap for 19 players (including more than $4-million for Marc Savard, who will go on long-term injured reserve), leaving enough room to sign restricted free agent goaltender Tuukka Rask and bid for a scoring winger. There have been rumours about the Bruins having interest in older guys, like Daniel Alfredsson, or re-signing Jagr, but this move could also free them up to join the fray bidding on David Clarkson. How the Bruins spend their money will go a long way towards determining the value from this trade because, straight up, its going to be very difficult for Eriksson and prospects to provide more value than Seguin will deliver to Dallas. Its understandable that the Bruins took the stance that they did on a young player that they didnt think was taking his job as seriously as he should, particularly when they have a veteran group that they expect to contend for the Stanley Cup, but its very risky. Its surely been happening forever but, in recent years, allegations and Deadspin reports have swirled around the likes of Patrick Kane, Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, all of whom have been Cup winners, Kane with the Chicago Blackhawks, who didnt trade him after a highly-publicized weekend in Wisconsin last spring, and Carter and Richards with Los Angeles in 2012, after the Flyers reportedly had their own concerns. Sometimes, a young player may need a trade to humble them and teach them just how high the stakes are in pro hockey, and if that happens for Seguin, the Bruins will come to regret the deal in the long run (if it happens quickly, then they could regret it even sooner). The decision they made, however, was apparently based on something that they werent prepared to accept with their current group.

NASHVILLE -- The Arizona Cardinals keep pushing for a playoff spot, even if they barely pulled out their latest win. Adam Pelech Jersey . Jay Feely kicked a 41-yard field goal in overtime, and the Cardinals edged the Tennessee Titans 37-34 in overtime after blowing a 17-point lead late in the fourth quarter. Still, the Cardinals (9-5) won their sixth in seven games. With San Francisco and Carolina winning, they remain a game back of both for a NFC wild-card berth. The Titans scored 17 points in the final 3:12 of regulation to force overtime with Ryan Fitzpatrick throwing two of his four TD passes to Michael Preston. They also recovered an onside kick to set up the tying TD with 10 seconds left in regulation. They won the toss and drove to the Cardinals 43 before Antoine Cason intercepted his second pass of the game. Tennessee (5-9) lost its third straight and eighth in 10 games. The Titans also lost their fifth consecutive home game for the first time since moving to Tennessee in 1997. The Cardinals scored 21 straight points in the second half, the last when Cason returned his first interception for a TD and a 34-17 lead. The Titans outgained Arizona 460-360 with Fitzpatrick throwing for 402 yards and Kendall Wright caught 12 passes for 150 yards hours after new president Tommy Smith said he felt they hadnt given up on Mike Munchak with the coachs job security at question. But Arizona sacked Fitzpatrick three times to go along with Casons interceptions. Rashard Mendenhall also ran for a pair of 1-yard touchdowns, and Carson Palmer threw for 231 yards and had a 6-yard TD pass to Jake Ballard. Cason also recovered a botched kickoff when Arizona surprised the Titans with a short kick to open the third quarter, and the Cardinals turned that into a 47-yard field goal by Feely. The Cardinals turned those mistakes into 13 points in a game with five lead changes. Arizona also made mistakes. The Cardinals didnt have a single penalty in the first half, but had four giving the Titans first downs on a 16-play drive by Tennessee for a TD and a 17-13 lead in the third quarter. Tennessee had won only once before this season when trailing going into the fourth quarter, losing seven other games. The Titans at least pushed this game to overtime with only a few thousand fans still left in the stadium because so many left when they fell behind 34-17. Munchak deactivated receivers Justin Hunter and Damian Williams for what team officials called violating team rules. The rookie Hunter was coming off the best game of his career and had topped 100 yards in two of the past three games. That forced the Titans to play Kenny Britt, and the veteran caught his first pass since Oct. 20. He finished with three catches. Josh Bailey Jersey . Paul George and Darren Collison each scored 17 points and Roy Hibbert added 11 points and nine rebounds for the Pacers (9-3), who won their third straight. Dennis Seidenberg Jersey . "Its amazing to do this coming from such a small island, where tennis isnt necessarily recognized as one of the main sports," Puig said. "Im just happy Im able to be here playing tennis not only for myself, but for my country too. http://www.authenticislandersshopnhl.com...ey-jersey/ . The Kelowna, B.C. rink made the announcement on their facebook page on Thursday night.PHILADELPHIA -- A.J. Burnett and Marlon Byrd were the two acquisitions the Philadelphia Phillies were hoping would help them get back to the post-season. Well, they helped them get a win in a season going nowhere. Burnett threw 7 1-3 sharp innings, Byrd hit a three-run homer and the Phillies beat the San Diego Padres 5-2 on Tuesday night. "Create some momentum. We just have to carry it over into tomorrow," manager Ryne Sandberg said. Back from a 1-5 trip that left them tied with the Cubs for the worst record in the NL, the Phillies opened a six-game homestand with only their 13th win at Citizens Bank Park. Burnett (4-5) allowed two runs and three hits to earn his first win since May 20. "It all starts with our pitching," Burnett said. "If we hold them down and give our guys a chance, the better off well be." Jonathan Papelbon left the bases loaded in a scoreless ninth to record his 300th career save, becoming the 26th pitcher to reach that mark. He has 14 consecutive saves after blowing his first try. "It was tough because I didnt feel that emotion in a while," Papelbon said. "It means a lot to me, more than most people would think." Will Venable hit a solo homer for San Diego. Starter Ian Kennedy (5-7) gave up five runs and seven hits in seven innings. Kennedy retired the first nine batters before Ben Revere lined a double to right to start Philadelphias fourth. Chase Utleys RBI single tied it at 1. After Ryan Howard singled, Byrd hit an opposite-field shot into the seats in right-centre field for a 4-1 lead. "It seems theres always one pitch youd like to take back and that was the pitch," Kennedy said. "Not a good location." Utley and Howard hit consecutive singles before Byrd drove in another run with a sacrifice fly in the sixth to make it 5-1. That was enough for Burnett, who shook off his recent struggles and was in control throughout. The righty was 1-4 with a 7.25 ERA in his previous six starts. Burnett waalked two after issuing 10 in his last two starts. Ryan Pulock Jersey. "It looked like he was throwing more strikes and he had some contact outs early in counts," Sandberg said. "He also mixed in some two-seam fastballs, which worked for him in getting ground-ball outs to left-handed hitters." Burnett only threw 89 pitches before giving way to Jake Diekman, who got the final two outs in the eighth on strikeouts. Diekman reached 100 mph on one of his fastballs. "I dont like to come out of a game, period," Burnett said. "But he throws a little harder than me." The Padres took a 1-0 lead in the third when Venable lined a 3-1 pitch into the seats in right for only his second homer in 179 at-bats. Venable hit a career-high 22 homers last season. The light-hitting Padres entered with the worst batting average in the majors at .218. Carlos Quentin snapped an 0-for-24 slump with a seventh-inning double. But Everth Cabrera (0 for 18) and Jace Peterson (0 for 18) were 0 for 5 to extend their hitless streaks. Quentin scored on Yonder Alonsos sacrifice fly to cut it to 5-2. NOTES: The Phillies had some positive injury news. LHP Cliff Lee could start throwing soon. Hes missed the last four starts because of an elbow strain. 3B Cody Asche (hamstring) should start a rehab assignment this weekend. An MRI showed that RHP Mike Adams doesnt have a torn labrum. Adams will get a cortisone shot and expects to return after a stint on the DL. ... Only Arizona has fewer home wins (12) than Philadelphia. ... Papelbons save was his first since May 24. ... The Padres lost for only the 11th time when having a lead at any point in a game. Thats the third-fewest total in the majors. ... The Phillies and Padres have 11 sacrifice flies this season. Only Pittsburgh had fewer (9). ... The Phillies signed RHP Aaron Nola, the seventh overall pick in last weeks amateur draft. ... RHP Tyson Ross (6-5, 3.22) of the Padres faces LHP Cole Hamels (2-3, 3.49) on Wednesday night.

Following the donations, Bobbitt Jr. believed the couple was taking funds from the account and filed a lawsuit to coerce the couple into turning over the remaining cash.  Bobbitt Jr. says he has only received $75,000 and that the couple has bought a BMW and taken lavish vacations with the money from the GoFundMe Campaign. 

On Monday, court documents were released and the couples lawyer, Ernst Badway stated, “(Since) it is expected that one or both of the defendants will likely be indicted, my firm and I will no longer be able to continue our representation of them in this matter.” 

Last Thursday a search warrant was executed and police searched the home of McClure and D'Amico. It has not been reported what law enforcement was seeking, but ABC did tweet that their BMW was seized. 

 

The couple was set to give separate dispositions on Monday but they were canceled. A criminal investigation has begun and the civil case is on hold until December. 

The couple has not been charged and deny the allegations. They stated they withheld some of the funds because they knew Bobbitt Jr. had battled a drug addiction and were concerned he would spend the money on drugs.

          Hurricane Hell: Here Are 5 of the Most Recent Devastating Storms Linked to Climate Change      Cache   Translate Page      
The new normal is frightening.

Only two weeks after the government of Puerto Rico raised the official death toll from Hurricane Maria from 64 to 2,975—making it the deadliest hurricane to occur last year—North and South Carolina residents are evacuating coastal areas in preparation for Hurricane Florence, which is expected to deliver winds of 130 miles per hour and be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas since the 1980s. Hurricanes have been pounding the southeastern U.S. for centuries, but in the era of climate change, they are becoming more frequent and more devastating.

Meteorologists are seeing an increase in the what is known as “rapid intensification,” meaning that a storm’s maximum sustained winds increase by at least 35 mph within a 24-hour period. According to data from the National Hurricane Center, there were, on average, ten cases of rapid intensification per year between 1982 and 1994—whereas between 2005 and 2017, 20 cases per year was the average. In 2017, the National Hurricane Center reported 40 cases of rapid intensification.

Meteorologists have five separate categories for hurricanes, with Category 1 being the least severe and Category 5 being the most severe. Florence appears to be reaching the Carolinas as a Category 4, but it could intensify to Category 5. And when rapid intensification—a phenomenon encouraged by climate change—occurs and a hurricane goes from Category 1 to Category 4 or 5 in less than 24 hours, there is little time to prepare.  

Here are five of the most devastating hurricanes that occurred in recent years.

1. Hurricane Katrina

In August 2015, Hurricane Katrina originated in the Bahamas before making its way to the U.S. A hurricane varies in intensity, and at its worst, Katrina became a Category 5 storm. The National Hurricane Center attributed a total of 1836 deaths to Katrina, with up to 1577 deaths in Louisiana—and the flooding was so severe in New Orleans that 80% of the city was under water.

Veteran reporter Mark Schleifstein, who covered Katrina for the New Orleans Times-Picayune, witnessed Katrina first hand and has some grim advice for residents of the Carolinas who are refusing to evacuate for Hurricane Florence: “write your Social Security number on your arm, so officials can identify your body.”

2. Hurricane Harvey

2017 was a terrible year for hurricanes, and one of the worst was Hurricane Harvey—which affected parts of Latin America (including Nicaragua and Honduras) but was especially devastating around the Texas Gulf Coast. Of the 108 deaths caused by Harvey in late August/early September 2017, 103 were in Texas. Some weather stations in Texas reported more than four feet of rain, and Houston suffered some of the worst flooding in the city’s history. 

3. Hurricane Maria

Only a few weeks after Hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas Gulf Coast, the Caribbean was, in September 2017, pounded by Hurricane Maria—which reached Category 5 at its worst. Maria caused some deaths in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Guadalupe, but the worst damage by far occurred in Puerto Rico. Of the more than 3,050 people killed by Maria, most of the fatalities occurred in Puerto Rico—although 65 people were killed on the island of Dominica, which didn’t have time to adequately prepare thanks to rapid intensification. A year later, Puerto Rico is still recovering from Maria.

Maria is a perfect example of how bad climate change is making rapid intensification: the storm went from Category 1 to Category 5 in only about half a day.

4. Hurricane Sandy

In the U.S., hurricanes have been most likely to affect the southern states.

Floridians are more likely to experience hurricanes than residents of New Jersey or Massachusetts, but that doesn’t mean that residents of the northeastern U.S. are immune to them—not by a longshot. And in 2012, Hurricane Sandy caused billions of dollars in damage, pounding the New Jersey Shore and the coast of Maryland as well as New York City. Atlantic City was evacuated, parts of Manhattan suffered flooding, and the mass transit systems of NYC and Philadelphia (which is about 60 miles inland) were shut down.

When Kevin E. Trenberth (a senior climatologist for the National Center for Atmospheric Research) was asked whether or not Hurricane Sandy was affected by climate change, he responded that while the answer was yes, Sandy was hardly unique in that regard. In 2012, Trenberth asserted, “All weather events are affected by climate change because the environment in which they occur is warmer and moister than it used to be.”

5. Hurricane Ike

In September 2008, Hurricane Ike caused at least 195 deaths and affected a wide area ranging from Cuba, Haiti (where at least 74 deaths occurred) and the Bahamas to the Florida Panhandle, the Mississippi Coast and the Texas Gulf Coast. Altogether, Ike is believed to have caused about $38 billion in damage.

          Success! Roanoke 'Harry Potter Festival' Changes Name To 'Generic Magic Festival' Due To WB's Bullying      Cache   Translate Page      

Earlier this summer, we discussed a policy shift at Warner Bros. regarding how it was enforcing its Harry Potter intellectual property that has resulted in the bullying of several fan conventions and gatherings. Events long left alone by WB to enjoy and promote the Potter franchise were suddenly getting threat letters and communications from the studio, informing them that all references to the franchise had to be removed. Many festivals, including one in Philadelphia, chose to simply shut down.

Others are going on, however, although perhaps not entirely as originally planned. Now, one might say, they are going on generically planned.

Although much smaller, even Roanoke' Harry Potter Festival has now changed its name. New names, new features, larger spaces and more magical stories can be expected to appear in this year’s Generic Magic Festival-- once known as the Harry Potter Festival.

"We are still celebrating literary magic and a lot of the creatures and potions Rowling uses are ones from mythology that have been used for years,” said Tracy Fisher, Roanoke minister of magic for the Generic Magic Festival.

It can be very hard to define something like success, but surely this must qualify for the WB's legal and business departments. Through its capricious bullying efforts, it has managed to turn a convention of fans of its product into something so generic so as to include the word in its festival's name. Yay? Those attending will still know exactly what they're there for, with the only real changes to this year's festival being the name, the amount of work organizers now have to do thanks to the changes, and likely some anger towards the studio from the festival's participants.

Craig Slomczewski, creator of the magical objects and that you’ll see around the festival, tells 10 news that the copyright infringement limitations made this year's event a challenge to design.

“It seemed like an impossible task because you are used to what you see in the movies and it makes you think out of the box that much more,” Slomczewski said.

Truly, today, justice has been done.

          The Lehighton Boys and Girls Band      Cache   Translate Page      


The nostalgia overwhelms me.
It’s been forty- years since I joined the band. 
Camp Blakslee - Lehighton Boys Band in 1911.  (All photos, unless otherwise noted, are property of the Lehighton
Boys and Girls Band.  Use of these photos is prohibited unless permission granted by the board.)
March 21, 1920 - Without hats here, with hats below.

Mel Hill is playing the saxophone, his posture exactly matching my memory of him.  He was of the second generation of the Lehighton Boys and Girls Band.  In Mel’s time it was only for the boys however.  The name and rules changed in 1980/1981.
Mel Hill playing the saxophone in a 1982
Big Band Ambassadors Concert in Lehighton.

(Paula Farkas, Gail Faust Rakos and Donna Ringeisen Maleski were pioneers.  By being the first females to enter the band in over 50 years, they took their share of abuse from some of the boys.)

I remember fearing Mel Hill.  Not because he was a robust veteran of the last Great War but because he ran a tight ship.  He had a long experience doing what he did, and he did it well.  It wasn’t long for this fear of mine to evolve into a deep respect.  That respect has grown stronger and more complete in my current memory.  Standing in this hall, I wish my current self could meet Mel all over again. 

The framed charcoal-sketch of the band’s chief benefactor, James I. Blakslee, the Fourth Assistant Postmaster General of the United States, appointed by President Wilson, still calls my attention.
James I. Blakslee's sketch as it hands at the band hall.
The benefactor of not only the Lehighton Boys and Girls
Band but in other Lehighton institutions as well.
After all he has done for Lehighton, perhaps it is
time that our town can set things right by
correctly spelling "Blakeslee" Blvd.

The hall is empty.  It is more or less exactly the same.  They’ve modernized the windows from the metal-frame, single-paned and glazed, drafty windows from 1957.  The walls are the same, but now painted a light blue.  The mission of the place is unchanged.

The echoes are still here.  I’m reminded of coming in for my weekly lesson. This shell has two modes.  Quiet and serene versus the punctuated echoes of notes.  The peace of the place always waiting to be filled with notes. 

Notes from beginners, a member of the preparatory “Prep Band” struggles through the weak, unintended side-toned squeaks of a clarinet during his weekly lesson.  The hesitant, clumsy beats of the drummer, unaware of his acceleration, is reined in by the director’s taps of the baton on the metal chair.



It cannot be escaped.  It was true for me then in a way that differs for me now.
The Sixth and Cypress Street location of the hall as it was being
built c. 1957.

The same scents are in the air, though less prominent.  The years of dances, spittle from the horn section, and floor wax, all mingle to form the hall’s unique scent.
This photo from c. 1960 shows then director Charles Fronheiser
giving weekly lessons to five trumpet players.  Fronheiser was a graduate
of the band and so was his son Charles Jr.  It looks like Lynn Solt is closest
to the camera.






The Lehighton Boys and Girls Band’s existence is a saga.  Independent notes of effort from many, blending their talents into a sometimes cacophonous harmony. 
The hall as it looked after its completion in 1957.  See the end notes
for a picture of the dedication from that day.
Membership used to be 75 cents per week.  That bought your weekly half-hour lesson and one hour session with the whole band.  In my day, it was $2 per week.  
A c. 1976 picture by Bob Fatzinger.

Current director Alyssa Schoch was a 5th grade student of mine.  She took over the reins of the band in January of 2016. 

Blakslee was the self-made man of Asa Packer’s nephew who had an ability, energy, and foresight to start projects worth working on and seeing them through.  He became secretary of the state democrats during a factious time of restructuring, endearing him to then New Jersey Governor Woodrow Wilson.

Blakslee did the things he saw needed doing.  He was fond of the phrase, “Everyone has their own row to hoe.”

But as legend has it, before leaving town for his new duties in the Wilson administration, he asked the band hall to return $500 to him.  Not because he needed it.  The money could only have been a fraction of what he shelled out to start the band.  He asked for this because it was his way of saying “I gave you a hand up, not a hand out.”  

The band evolved out of Blakslee’s involvement with Lehigh Engine #2.  The Lehighton Boys Band was originally the Lehigh Engine #2 Company band, started in 1910.  There was also a time when there was a separate Lehighton Girls Band as well.  (See the pictures of both boys and girls in the picture at Saylor’s Lake.)
The Lehighton Boys Band encampment at Saylors Lake - 1913

The Lehighton Boys and the separate Lehighton Girls Bands stayed for 10 days at a time at Saylor's Lake to perfect
their craft in the summertime in the style of camp as well as being the "house" band to perform for other guests at the resort.


From the Morning Call, August 1927.
Though the band’s impetus began with Blakslee, it fell to numerous others to hoe many hard rows for Lehighton’s young musicians.  Much musical fruit was borne of the efforts of the Board of Directors and the Ladies Auxiliary.   They made civic pleas for financial aid from the community.  The directors held bank notes to keep weekly dues at a minimum to ensure nearly everyone in town could afford to join.

I think fondly of A. Henry Reiss, a man I never met.  He was the band’s first musical director.  He couldn’t have been paid very much.  The papers liked to mention how he came from New York, as if that added extra value to his efforts.  To know the man’s gifts is to know the true measure of the man.

Despite what I assume was low-pay, it surprised me how content he looked.  He was obviously doing something he loved.  He looks solid, as if he were composed of solid brick and mortar.  Born in New York, Reiss arrived in Lehighton in 1911 from his job in a music store in Richland County, South Carolina at the age of 35. 
This undated photo, most likely at a concert at same Pocono resort or lake is from the 1940s when the band wore
blue capes.  The director is Charles Kuebler of Jim Thorpe (Mauch Chunk).

The directors of the band had rich backgrounds.  Taking over after Reiss was Arthur Guimes, a Greek-born graduate of Boston Conservatory.  His obituary in 1922 described him as “a musician of note and one of the most widely-known bandmasters of this region.”

I remember playing in both the Prep and the Senior band at many cake walks.  Sometimes at church festivals and sometimes on the band hall grounds itself for the annual fundraising block party with games of chance, funnel cake, and bingo games inside.

Unfortunately we do not know any of these ladies from the Ladies Auxillary.

The Prep band would play for the cake walk in the afternoon, followed by the Senior Band, and sometimes the Dance Band or pieces of Mel Hill’s Big Band Ambassadors would entertain the evening crowd.

I remember the annual bus rides to Dorney Park, chaperoned by Mel Hill and sometimes Chester Kleintop and Elliot “Sammy” Markley.  (Yes the same man who patrolled LaRoses skating rink with his whistle.)

Here is a list compiled by someone in the band hall listing all the
graduates of the band who have gone on to continue their life in music.
Both men were regular fixtures around the hall.  We boys were unaware of all their hard work.  At one time, the band hall held Friday night dances with live music.  The hall of course was built for this.  It had bandstand risers at one end and spacious room for dancing on its hard wood floors.  

The risers look handmade.  They are unchanged since before my youth.  I can imagine a Saturday afternoon when members of the board, ever careful with each dollar, pitched in to construct them.  I can say this because though they are sturdy and long lasting, they are far from the perfection of a seasoned wood-worker.  These were made with love, not for profit.

The ladies Auxiliary sold cookbooks with recipes donated from members and friends of the band hall.  These fundraisers were essential to keep the dues at such a low rate of $2 per week.  The hall still holds Sunday night bingo each week.
Late 1950s/early 1960s- Lehighton Memorial Day Services - Saluting those
fallen at sea with the Lehighton Boys and Girls Band in the background on
the Weissport bridge..

We members of the band were always busy each Memorial Day weekend. We'd drive all around, conveyed by some old rickety bus from Rehrig's transportation.  Had you asked me then, I'd have sworn they invented these places just to make our days all that much longer.  

But there's something my current self draws from that today.  It has drawn me closer to the significance of  Memorial Day ever since, a sensation that grows stronger with age.  It cannot be explained.

We'd play music at both small and intimate ceremonies around small family plots of graves and in the main Memorial Day Parade in town.  This tradition continues today.  

And of course there were the many other parades: Halloween, Veterans Day, and Firemen’s parades too.

Looking back at the dedication and what it meant to be in the band is what strikes me now.  I delayed my own entry to the band through my own reluctance.  (Perhaps ‘reticence’ would be a better word?)

My two older brothers played the trumpet as our father did in the band.  Though I consider myself quite dependent on my love of music today, I really had little enthusiasm to join as a 10-year-old. 

After a year of putting off my mother’s urging, I finally agreed to make some noise as part of the percussion section, certainly this agreed with my sense of fulfilling my parents’ wishes and appeasing my desire to invest as little as possible (i.e. I wouldn’t even have to learn musical notes, just beats!)
The 1948 Prep Band Spring Concert - Director Fronheiser

My dad left the band when he entered the Marine Corps in June 1948.   After Parris Island he was accepted into the Marine Corps Divisional band.  At that time, the Marine Corps was able to send only fifteen cadets from the entire nation, into the Navy School of Music in Washington DC.  My dad and his cousin Nuny got two of those fifteen spots, mainly because they had been members of the Lehighton Boys Band.  (To read more about these men, click here.)

Many former Lehighton Boys Band members went on to careers in music and particularly in the service bands.  When my dad arrived at the school, the director greeted him and his cousin Raymond “Nuny” Rabenold with enthusiasm, as the band’s reputation had preceded their arrival.  Nuny’s father Raymond was the longtime secretary of the Board of Directors with his mother Edith on the Ladies Auxiliary Board.
Finally earning your jacket, and moving from the Prep band
to Senior band was a big occasion.  Here Donald Getz gives his brother Neil

November 1941 -Veterans Day Parade

The brand new Lehighton High School was dedicated on September 4th,
1918.  On September 4, 2018, the Lehighton Area School District opened
its brand new elementary center to students 100 years to the day later.
“Back in the day,” in the early days of the band, music was everywhere.  There was no large public gathering of people without it.  The fair, church festivals, parades, private parties, building dedications, ad infinitum: people danced and cake walked to live music.  Digitized sound has supplanted the live musician.


Lehighton’s first generation of band hall musicians begins with A. Henry Reiss and Hontz’s Pirates.  Reiss was the first director.  Passing onto the second generation, under the direction of Charles Kuebler, we have the “Lehighton Boys Band March,” written by Kuebler in the 1930s.  

Within those first generations of musicians under Reiss and a Greek-born director Arthur Guimes were Charles Fronheiser.  First as musicians themselves and later to conduct the band.  Fronheiser and Hill combined to lead the band from 1946 up to 1980. 
Not only did the Lehighton Boys and Girls Band stay and play at Saylor Lake, but so did former band hall student Ervin "Irving" Young.  (See the circle above.)

One of Ervin "Irving" Young's first bands, here at the stage of the Lehighton High stage in 1920s - L-R: Frank Drumheller, Robert Montz, Ervin Young, Floyd Harleman, Harold Oswald, and Frank Whitman.

Busy Summer- Ervin Young's band had plenty of
work in the summer of 1921.  This ad from July,
the next one lower right from August.

The national music scene was reflected within our own bands.  Ervin “Irving” Young’s first band in the 1920s was the “Peerless Sextet.”  The men plainly doubled on more than one instrument, but it featured Irving on drums, a trumpet, trombone, saxophone, piano, and two xylophones. 

The piano, drums and guitars were considered part of the rhythm section.  In the Big Bands, there were these same essential pieces, with the addition of an expanded brass section of 3 to 6 saxophones, trumpets, and trombones.  Tubas were in fashion early, but exchanged later for the stand-up double bass. 

This was reflected in Ervin’s later band, “Irving Young and his Californians."  From 1925 through 1926, Young’s band toured extensively with vaudeville and film star Frank Farnum, who was known as an “eccentric” dancer of the Charleston.  
Ervin and a bandmate have fun showing their
high billing in the newly built Earle Theatre
in Philadelphia.  It was the most lavishly
decorated and expensive decors of all
city theaters at that time.

Ervin was also known to play for cruise ship bands.  One ship, known as the “Evangeline” was based in New York City.  The Irving Young and his Californians played extensively on this ship in the early, pre-WWII, 1940s.  He also played around Lake Hopatcong in New Jersey.

However, in the era of my family, it was the Hill family that meant so much to Lehighton music.  

Melvin Hill directed the band from 1962 to 1980.  Brothers Carmen and Maynard were also part of Mel’s various musical endeavors.  Claude and Esther Hill were a five star family during the war.

June 1947 Morning Call.
After the war, the Hill brothers started a big band known as the “16 Masters of Music” (the number was sometimes 15).  

It featured Maynard Hill on vocals, Carmen on piano (part of the rhythm section) and Mel on saxophone.  They played regularly at Flagstaff Moonlight Ballroom in the summer of 1948.

          Hunting in Carbon County - Scarcity to Resurgence      Cache   Translate Page      
Post #1 of 5:
              

Hunting is Carbon’s second skin.  Though we’re not unique in this regard, life here is inextricably tied to it.

For hunting reaches beyond basic sustenance, it pulls us onto the proving ground, and connects us to this land.

The comradery and the day in the woods is enough for some.  But for many, a day without something to drag out and brag about is devastating.

John Deppe shot his first deer in December 1873.  Young John was the son of Henry Deppe, a well-known Pine Swamp saw-miller.  His Hickory Run area deer dressed out at 115 pounds.  And John was just one month shy of his seventh birthday.


Escaped from Mr. Ash's Game preserve on the Mahoning Mountain: Lewis Steigerwalt, reclined front left was the owner of the hotel, post office, and farm implement business at the crossroads of Andreas, Schuylkill County, just over the Carbon County line from East Penn.  This 1923 picture of 16 buck hunters proudly displaying this fine 8 or 9-point buck is a testament to the scarcity of deer in our area at this time.  The back of the photo says "first deer shot in Andreas," certainly deer were so scarce that shooting one was a cause to take multiple poses with it.  More about this story and the men in the picture can be found in the end notes of this post.
Were these men cursed?  Many died through unfortunate circumstances, see End Notes for details.

And this is Lehigh.  Once again…
And still the timid deer come down
To drink, at eve and morning;
And still the laurel blooms as bright
As in my life's glad dawning....

~Augusta Moore, from Poems of Places Anthology 31, 1876-79
(The complete poem is reprinted in the End Notes section #3.)


This is a young Snyder boy of Kresgeville
with his first buck in the early 1950s.


Today, Pennsylvanians expect to harvest a minimum 300,000+ deer per year.  Many youth have good reason to have high hopes of filling their scopes with that magical chestnut-brown hair.

But John Deppe’s first deer in 1873 was rather significant.  The harvests in those days were exceedingly slimmer than those in our modern age. 

This is the first of three installments that will examine the record of big game hunting in our area over the last 140 years.








The Rabenold-Finsel gang of Spring Hill Mountain

   Even a button-buck is cause for celebration, especially
when it's the only deer shot that year in camp.
A son's first deer is a special type of pride for fathers.  That buck
season was one of the many exceptionally warm ones in recent years.





















In the Beginning

You have to begin at the start of it all, when man first evolved into tribes to see the evolution of this special rite of passage.

From Colonial times up into our nationhood, many area farmers were known as “long hunters.”  The most famous one in this area was perhaps Philip Ginter who discovered coal in Summit Hill in 1791 while out hunting deer.

Hunters like Ginter were farmers first.  And once all of their crops were turned in for the fall, they turned their attention to hunting. 

Not just for a few days mind you.  A “long” time entailed, two and three weeks.  They’d start in late November or early December and would promise to be home for Christmas.  Thus our modern day season was set.

did men hunt "long."  This hunter, a patron of John Snyder's
"Jonas Hotel" speaks of his glum life back at work after
17 days hunting in Jonas, just over the Carbon County line.  Many of the
patrons of these old hotels were doctors and professionals from the city.
Many more letters and pictures from these men will be posted
in the next installment of "Hunting in Carbon County." (A link
will appear here once it is finished and posted.)


Ginter, like many small farmers of the Mahoning Valley, and valleys just like it, looked for the “buck season” to help expand their land holdings.

Their goal wasn’t only to salt away venison for the winter, but also to gather as many deer skins as possible.  Each skin garnered a price of $1.  Hence the term “buck skin” came to be applied and the male deer forever known as a “buck.”

In those days 100-acres of farm land could be had for $100.  Some hunters were known to expand their farms at 100-acre clips every few years mainly from money for buck skins.

One of the most famous of all area hunters, an almost mythical man, was Jeremiah “Old Jerry” Greening of “Rattlesnake,” a hamlet of Blooming Grove, Pike County. 

His farm was just northeast over Monroe County from Carbon and he was known to have killed “upward of 500 deer” at a time when deer were much more scarce than they are today.

Jerry farmed and had many sons who also hunted.  Many of his exploits were told and retold all over the country in syndicated newspaper stories in the 1870s and into the 1890s.  More will be told of this man in the “Tall Tales” section of Post #3 in this series.

Game Preserves:

It could be said that modern deer conservation started in Carbon with Josiah White.  He was no doubt the first to start a game preserve here in Carbon though he wasn’t the last.

White took up residence here in the winter of 1817/18 to build the “Stone Turnpike,” the origin of the Switchback Railroad.  He was the progenitor of the “the Old Company,” the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company.

By 1828, he built the first of the grand homes in what is today Jim Thorpe.  He called it “Parkhurst” where Kemmerer Park is today. 

Even before he retrieved his family from his home outside Philadelphia, White brought his eighty-year old mother here.  And before he called for his children and wife, he built Carbon’s first game preserve for deer, elk, and peacocks to entertain his soon to arrive children.

He was not the last to do so.  Asa Packer had one too.  And so did T. A. Snyder, the builder of Flagstaff Park, the inter-urban trolley line, and the incomparable Colonial Court Mansion in Lehighton. 
Descendants of Henry Melber still do two things as all
the successive Mauch Chunk Melbers did: Work as undertakers
and hunt, and not necessarily in that order.  Those who know Tom
and his son Nate Melber will attest there are no truer sportsmen
than they are.  For more on this story and how the Melbers
were fully exonerated, see the End Notes of this post.

One upstanding hunting family in Carbon was once wrongly accused of hunting a deer from Snyder’s preserve.

The first evening of Doe Camp at Little Acres
Farm, Kresgeville, 15 December 1959.

The men and boys of Little Acres Farm - Doe Season December 1959 - Dreaming of sugar plums and venison.
There were many efforts by the state in these days that we take for granted today, such as the game lands. 

In July of 1914 Dr. Joseph Kalbfus and Dr. Penrose of the State Game Commission visited Penn Forest township to select and declare a site for a game preserve, to be stocked with deer from Michigan. 
Dr. Kalbfus not only visited Penn Forest to set up
a deer preserve area, but also implemented the re-stocking
of deer from Trexler's Preserve to counties
in need of deer: Lehigh, Potter, Elk, Berks,
Wyoming, and others in Jan 1917.































The men concluded that “few places in the state afford such an excellent place for raising deer than in Penn Forest Township.”

People went to great effort to stock deer in this area.  In the fall of 1890, Henry O. Hughes of Carbon Hill, Alabama, helped to restock deer here by shipping two first-year fawns to his father-in-law William Evans in Slatington.

The article said the deer still had their spots, which the newspaper account compared to the spots of a leopard.  This evidence suggests that the average citizen did not have first-hand knowledge of what a young deer looked like, evidence of their rarity at that time.

In 1891, the “famous Alligator Club of Emmaus” sold their three “handsome” deer to Jacob Reichard of Haymaker’s Island on the Lehigh, near Allentown.  

“Two of the deer were bred in captivity, and all of them are very fine, and as thoroughly domesticated as house cats.  That they will prove a great attraction to visitors to the island cannot be doubted.”

These two articles provide a curious glimpse of life around white-tail deer here and provides ample evidence that deer were considered a rare animal indeed.


Colonel Harry Trexler
This hearty buck was shot between Trachsville
and Little Gap, where Russell Bollinger was known
to hunt.  Shown here is Russell's first wife
Marian (George) who died of cancer
in 1938 at the age of 28.  


No one embodies the era more than Colonel Harry Trexler.  A self-made millionaire of the Lehigh Valley, Trexler made a fortune in the Portland cement business.  But he was also a logger, purchasing thousands of acres of timbering land.

The present day boundaries of Hickory Run State Park were purchased by Trexler.  He remodeled the former Samuel Gould homestead and entertained guests with apple-jack punch and fishing jaunts to nearby Sandy Spring.

The Gould property is adjacent to the Hickory Run cemetery where members of the Gould family are buried along with other logging and sawmill families of the area.  Among them, those who drown in the flash flood caused by the breach of a 70-acre sawmill dam in October of 1849.

Trexler planned on donating the land for public recreation.  He said, “We live only a short distance from the anthracite coal region where there is scarcely a blade of grass growing…”  The area lacked deer habitat and Trexler was fixed on improving it.

He wanted men and their families to have a place for outdoor recreation, “rather than have them loafing around pool rooms and saloons fomenting anarchism, I would like to see Hickory Run developed into a state park.”

Several state agencies (the Game Commission, Fish Commission and the Department of Forest to name a few) commenced campaigns to receive the park from Trexler’s will and trust.

Trexler passed away in a car accident in 1935, and oddly, had taken the lands out of his will due to the bureaucratic wrangling.  Eventually, trustees of his estate oversaw the land transfer into the park and hunting lands we have today.

One recipient of Trexler’s will was Joseph Heimbach.  The Heimbach farm is the last large farmstead, on both sides of Route 534, after Hawk Falls and before the camping area.

Heimbach or his surviving wife, would receive an annual salary from the estate to the amount of $500 per year.  Heimbach may have been some sort of caretaker or overseer of Trexler’s land or perhaps payment for the right of way through his farm.
The smallest 6-pointer ever?  Another deer shot by Russell Bollinger
of Trachsville sometime in the 1930s.  His father was Jonas Bollinger who
was a nephew of John and Charles Snyder of Jonas Hotel.  The hotel
was started by Jonas Snyder around 1850.  He had two boys (John and Charles)
who ran the hotel from 1900 until 1950.  Russell's grandmother Emaline
Bollinger was one of four of Jonas Snyder's daughters.  More on the Jonas
Hotel will be written in Post #2 and Post #4.

A 1954 photo of Col. Trexler's Game Preserve - Lehigh County


















The Bizarre and the Curious

Colonel Trexler also endowed a large game preserve just south of Carbon in Lehigh County.   In March 1911, a trainload of wild game (forty does, ten bucks, and three buffaloes) were unloaded at Colonel Trexler’s game preserve. 

The three rail cars delivered the animals from a preserve in New Hampshire as well as ones captured from the “Blue Mountain Forest.”
January 1917 - How rare was wild game at
this time?  This Allentown Democrat article
discusses released 8 deer, rabbits, and one
wild turkey from the Philadelphia Zoo.  One.


The train arrived in Coplay at 8:00 PM March 2nd.  Two and sometimes three crated deer fit into one wagon.  However, each buffalo, weighing about 1,500 pounds, would each take up their own wagon en route to the preserve.

A total of forty wagons were used to haul them the three miles from the station, the “menagerie of wagons resembling a circus procession never seen in this county.”

Lehighton also had a game preserve, created by William Ash in 1910.  Many are familiar with the section of land west of Baer Memorial Park known as “Ashtown.”  Ash’s home still stands there, a grand example of the Sears & Roebuck catalog homes of that time.

Ash’s preserve was located on the Mahoning Mountain near what is today known as “Graverville.”

The first deer shot in the Andreas area in a generation was actually a buck that escaped from Ash’s preserve.  (Note the picture above.)


 “Scarce and Scattered” - 1880-1930

In this time period, lumber was king in Pennsylvania and Trexler was only one of many Pennsylvanians who started their fortunes in lumber. 

Williamsport was at one time the lumber capital of the world.  In 1899 Pennsylvania reached its peak of annual lumber production with 2.3 billion board feet of lumber harvested. 

It made many in the state into “millionaires,” the moniker for Williamsport High School today.  Today, Pennsylvania boasts of 59% or 16.7 million acres of forested land.

By 1900 there were only nine to 9-13 million acres of forest in the state.  Compare this number to the estimated 28 million acres back to William Penn’s time in the 1680s. 
The squeeze on big game was on.

The Great Pine Swamp of northern Carbon County was filled with lumber operations.  The plentiful old growth hemlock trees were cleared, feeding the stave mills for barrel making and the slab bark sent to the many leather tanneries, Lehigh Tannery being one of the largest in the world.

Indeed the area economy revolved around timber and hunting.  Carbon’s place at the hub of the world-wide distribution of anthracite coal placed its own pressures on the woodlands. 

Canal boat captains would work the waterways all summer long.  And once December brought the first freeze-over to the slack water, the men would commence hauling logs out of the Pine Swamp to be used in boat repair and boat building at the Weissport boat yard.

There is some conflicting evidence over just how rare deer had become in the state.  There is no question that the number of deer and big game was extremely small compared to today, through loss of habitat alone.

Six deer in Weissport - Most likely shot in Potter County, Reuben Small's favored spot in the 1930s.  Reuben, from Massachusetts, met and married Lehighton's Esther Koch at business school, forming Lehighton's
"Small and Koch Dairy" in the 1920s.  

(Click here from more on this dairy and other early Lehighton businesses.
The Small and Koch segment is near the end of this hyperlink.)

This Weissport scene is sometime in the early 1940s, as the McCall Bridge in the background was completed around 1938.
Scarce and Scattered

Scarce they were indeed, making folks curious about wild game in those days.
Hotels owners used wild game as prizes and to grab attention at this time with “old-fashioned hustling matches” that attracted crowds and brought in money.

Fred Horlacher (before he brewed his famous Allentown beer) was a tavern owner in “Bowmansville” (Bowmanstown).  On February 1879 he held a match and social hop.  There were a variety of prizes, but the one sure to draw a crowd was the top prize: a “tame bear.”

Similarly, Moses Rabenold’s Hotel (near Emmaus) held a “splendid year old buck deer, just now getting his first set of antlers” as a prize at his hotel.  Surely, wild animals were of such scarcity and yet held in high esteem by the public to make such offerings an attraction to the average citizen. 

Perhaps the fact that a four-point buck found in Albrightsville in 1892 best attests to just how rare deer were at this time.  An article in the local paper stated how Mr. Dench discovered this buck skull and rack and how it was the talk of the area. 

Again, this was only a four-point deer.  He didn’t shoot it.  He found it.  Would this make news today?

Evidence that deer were curious to people and therefore somewhat rare, can be found in Lehighton’s druggist T. D. Thomas.
The Leuckel Building, most recently known as "White's Trading," in the 1980s it was Rea and Derrick Drugs seen here around 1942 with the opening of the Windsor Clothing Store.  There for the promotional first night was the then Lehighton Boys Band, roughly 40 years before they changed to the Lehighton Boys and Girls Band.  The Leuckel Building was completed in 1899 by Frederick and John Leuckel and once housed the post office and two banks.  The expressions on the faces of the citizens in their hats and band members in their capes as well as  the young girl looking down from the window gives this photo a classic Americana feel.  This never before published photo appears here courtesy of Paula Kistler Ewaniuk, a descendant of the T.D. Clauss and Mahlon Kistler, both key Lehighton businessmen from the glory days of Lehighton's downtown.

There will be an opening ceremony of the burying of men’s razors and women’s makeup as well as the uncovering of them on the last day.  The park will have music each night with it all culminating with a fireworks display that will be seen from anywhere in Lehighton.

It could be easy to develop a romanticized version of life in those days.  Often times the “good old days” are remembered as blissful times without strife.

Lehighton’s early days had a “wild west” mystique.  There were saloons and cigar shops, and unsolved murders in our muddy streets.  We had constables, horse thieves, and posses, but we had no jail.  Once in 1870, a trio of banks robbers was caught here and was held captive in Mantz’s Hotel over night (see 1940s picture of First St below for the Mantz Hotel).

Constable John Weston formed a posse and cornered the desperate outlaws amid a fierce February snowstorm.  The outlaws had swum the icy Lehigh to a hiding place in the woods across the river.  This robbery also led to an unsolved murder of an unidentified man here in town over thirty years later (See footnotes for more).

Another story tells how the southern end of town was quarantined and several citizens died due to smallpox that Lehighton silk mill owner and town benefactor Eugene Baer accidentally brought to town from New Jersey in 1902.  (See footnotes for more & click here for more on Baer's Mill and family.)

You name it, we had it: Rowdy council meetings with political backbiting, scandalous behavior at the fair including illegal gambling and drinking, as well as fraud and other crimes of all sorts, from the salacious sort to the comical and accidental.

Two men who clashed in the 1890s were Burgess (mayor) Benjamin J. Kuntz and newspaperman George W. Morthimer.  Kuntz, who succeeded Dan Olewine at his Seventh and Bridge Sts tannery, summoned Chief of Police Raworth to town council meeting to “settle down the rowdies.”

The Lehighton Press of North First Street - David McCormick, son of locally famous Civil War veteran William Carpenter
McCormick in the press room with his longtime pressman Harry Miner.  The two women are likely other longtime employees typist Alice Heintzleman and McCormick's sister, columnists Mary (McCormick) Ray.   This picture and other valuable McCormick family primary sources provided by Bill and Kathy White of Lehighton. 
Morthimer was a member at that council and among other things, didn’t appreciate Kuntz’s allegations.  However Morthimer’s power of the press (the “Fourth Estate” as they say) led to Kuntz’s undoing.  Kuntz was mayor in 1879 and later again from 1891-92.  However, his fourth run (as mayors seemed to serve only one year terms in those days) as mayor ended in November 1892 amid attacks from Morthimer’s “Carbon Advocate.”

Morthimer later served as mayor from 1903 to 1913.  McCormick served from 1918 to 1921.  By this time, it seems like the three-year terms had begun.

A March 1890 snipett in the Carbon Advocate announced B.J. Kuntz as "big, tall, tanner and Republican politician was a familiar figure on our streets on Wednesday."  Morthimer was a Democrat.  One of Morthimer's complaints about Kuntz was that not until after he lost the election did he complain about the illegal gambling at the fair grounds.

As of June 1910 Lehighton had three newspapers.

By 1902, Morthimer sold his "Carbon Advocate" to Attorney Philip M. Graul.  One long-time employee of Graul was future Lehighton mayor William F. Hummel (1942 to 1953).  But Morthimer would continue a South First St paper under the name of Lehighton’s “Evening Leader."  His other competitor, David McCormick, ran the weekly “Lehighton Press” on North First.  Both of these men were themselves involved in public office.  (See footnotes for more on Morthimer and McCormick).

Graul's weekly "Carbon Advocate" raised its rate from $1.00 to $1.50 for its annual subscription.  This was announced in February 1917, taking effect for 1918.  Gaul was the first in the county to raise the rate, thought the other county papers soon followed.  The Advocate burned in the early 1920s.  Graul was appointed postmaster when President Wilson took office in 1913.

he appears in Brenckman's Carbon History of 1913
Morthimer ran the Lehighton Evening Leader.

Mausoleum.
The Carbon Advocate had some advice for improving our town back in 1890: “Consider…Electric illumination, widening of the thoroughfares leading from Fourth St to the Fair Grounds, and from Alum Street to Kuntz’s tannery, a town hall and hose house and the beautifying of the two Parks.  Cut this out and paste it in your hats.”

After several months of pleas using such phrases as "let there be light" and trying to shame the town for still using coal-oil because Lansford, Mauch Chunk, and Weatherly already had electiric street lights, The Carbon Advocate was pleased to announce in June 1891 that the town had secured a contract with the electric company to "illuminate the town."

Lehighton was of course founded by the Moravian settlers on the banks of the Mahoning Creek in 1746.  It was part of what was known as the Moravian “Economy,” various industrious pursuits to make money for the mother organization to further its missionary work among the Indians.

This letterhead among the papers discovered inside Guy Morthimer's copy of
Brenckman's Carbon County History from 1913.  G. W. (George Williams) Morthimer took over the Carbon
Advocate from his father Harry V. Morthimer.  And in turn Guy Morthimer took full control of the Leader
when his father passed in 1918.
Lehighton was just one town of the many founded by the Moravians.  Bethlehem and Nazareth were their first two settlements in the area as well as Emmaus in 1759.  The Moravians also made settlements elsewhere, as far away as Georgia.

Lehighton was formed as an important stepping stone to the harder to reach native groups of the Wyoming and Susquehanna valleys.  They lived in peace here but many colonial leaders had viewed these missionaries with at least some suspicion and perhaps a bit of contempt.

As the French and Indian War approached, laws were passed in New York barring Christians from spending the night among the native groups.  This was aimed at the French Jesuit priests who lived among and ministered to the Indian souls they were trying to win over.  Many felt the Moravians were simply French Catholics in disguise and were trying to infiltrate the English speaking lands

Fear of Indians led to an overall distrust of anyone who aided the natives.  The Lehigh Valley then became a refuge for these exiled New York Moravians and their Indian cohorts when they were forced out of New York.

Another sticking point came from the Moravian blacksmiths.  Though it was colonial policy not to provide the Indians with firearms, the Gnadenhutten blacksmiths were eager to help repair the flintlocks of any Indian who passed through here, and many did.

With British General Braddock’s western Pennsylvania defeat in July of 1755 came fear of further Indian reprisals would move eastward.

They of course were right.  Attacks were made on many area settlements, but the peace and good relations the Moravians established here made them feel impervious to any hostility.  And as the story goes, on the evening of November 24th it all came to an end here.  Many of those attacked here had only been in this country for a few weeks.

Not all were killed.  One husband and wife became separated: she spent the night in the hollow of a tree and he ran to Bethlehem and back through the night, to get help.  They were reunited in the morning, each fearing the other had died.

And had the 16-year-old lad Joseph Sturgis not jumped from the burning attic and lived, we may not have the pretzel today.  He went to live at another Moravian settlement in Lititz and was a successful potter.

His grandson Julius Sturgis developed the first commercial pretzel bakery in the country.  (More of this including information of those lost and those who survived can be read here.)

Few people realize that one somewhat mysterious woman came to live on these grounds.  Here purpose was to venerate the martyred souls lost here.  Her name was Fredericka Misca.  (More of her can be read here: )

Jacob Weiss of course bought some of the Moravian lands on both sides of the river.  And another highly industrious man named William Henry partnered with him.  Henry learned the gunsmith trade in the Moravian settlement of Lititz before moving to Nazareth.  When the mission here faded, the Moravians found an eager buyer in Henry and Weiss.

The timing of this venture was enhanced with Josiah White’s successful launch of the coal trade, first on the river with his “bear trap locks” and later in 1828 with the Lehigh Canal, leaving the lands of Weiss and Henry open to the future promise of the industrial settlement of Lehighton.  (More on Josiah White can be found here.)

Speculative minds and hard working hands soon followed.

Of the first industries here were grist mills and leather tanning.  There was a mill sluice and run that ran parallel and along today’s Route 209 bypass, behind today’s Lehighton Hi-Rise.

Later Moses Heilman had a grist mill on the Mahoning Creek and a large dam behind what is today’s Boulevard Restaurant.  He also had a feed mill on First Street.  He last lived at the corner of Third and Alum Sts.

In 1915, the Burd brothers well-diggers found three human skulls near Heilman’s dam, which was just downstream from where Henry Graver would build his ice dam and pond.  The skulls were thought to be from the colonial days of the Moravians.  Some speculated these were Indian skulls.

However, another theory that should be considered would be those of the six men Ben Franklin hastily buried along the banks of the Lehigh when he came to build the fort in Weissport in January 1756.  About six colonial militiamen were lured into an attack on New Year’s Day that year.

Heilman was just one of many of our town’s “pioneer” residents.  Another was Lewis Graver, father of Henry, the patriarch of the many Graver enterprises here.  Lewis came to timber the Moravian lands as a youngster of twelve with his father and was an early boat builder with his brother Andrew.  They had a boatyard at the canal and were also leather tanners.
Here is a view from the Carbon House looking south on First St Lehighton around the 1940s.  You can see the Elk's
Building, destroyed by fire in 1934, is refurbished here with the A&P Store in residence.  Also, G.C. Murphy, Hotel Lehighton (now the Hi-Rise) and further down the "Mantz Building" with its ornate top (most recently Renee's Beauty Shop).

Lewis Graver’s son Henry later ran a brickworks, ice house, and skating rink.  He also built two of Pennsylvania’s largest cement swimming pools.  First here and another in Lebanon PA in the 1920s (Read more about this family here:).  Lewis also had two daughters with business sense.  Alvenia and Adaline were milliners in town (Read more here):

Eastern Pennsylvania, but especially northern Carbon County in the Pine Swamp and Hickory Run area, held plentiful reserves of hemlock pine trees.

Hemlock (and oak to a slightly lesser degree) bark was preferred for the tanning of hides into malleable leather because of its high tannic acid content.  So the fact that Lehighton had no less than two well-established tanneries should come as no surprise.  

The first tannery in town is believed to be started by David Heller in the area behind First Street in 1820.  It was in the vicinity of where G.C. Murphy was operated a department store, across the narrow street of today’s Hi-Rise.

This tannery property was eventually developed into what was known as the “Linderman Block, so named for Asa Packer’s son-in-law, Dr. Garrett B. Linderman.

Dr. Linderman came to Mauch Chunk in the great cholera epidemic in 1854, falling in love with Packer’s daughter Lucy.  (Read more here: )

It is unclear whether Heller sold his interests directly to Stephen Kistler (no direct relation to Lehighton’s Daniel "Jacob" or "Jake" Kistler).  After Stephen left to develop his Tannersville properties, he left the Lehighton tannery in the hands of his brother William.  However one newspaper article mentioned a tanner and animal fertilizer business owned by a Benjamin J. Kistler (not to be confused with Lehighton tanner Benjamin J. Kuntz.)

Kistler came from Kistler Valley to start his first one of the four tanneries he would eventually own.  At his death, it was said that he was the wealthiest tanner in the state and perhaps the nation.

He lived and operated a larger one in Monroe County’s “Tannersville” as well as two in Susquehanna County.
Owen W. Snyder once owned this fine Victorian-era home on the corner of Second and Alum Sts.  Snyder was a horse surgeon born in the Kistler Valley, Lynnport in 1860.  He died of heart failure in 1922.  He and his wife Amanda did not have children, though they did raise her nephew Arnold Rusell (born 1912).  Snyder lived first in the Mansion House Hotel when he arrived here in the spring of 1887.  By 1890 he was living near Kistler's Livery at the Carbon House.  Since this is most likely Snyder and his nephew Arnold who looks to be as young as maybe 5 or so, this picture is probably taken around 1917 or so.  The house was later owned by widowed physician John Hammel, father of two well-known Hammels: William and Andrew.  Currently Gregory Duschak is refurbishing the home and it will be for sale.  (Picture courtesy of the Brad Haupt collection.)
Here is a modern view of the three Queen Anne sashes in the attic tower of the Snyder home, currently being refurbished by Gregory Duschak.

Owen W. Snyder lived in a handsome Victorian-era home on the corner of South Second and Alum Sts (currently being refurbished by Gregory Dsuchak).  He was a veterinarian surgeon, specializing in the many horses that kept Lehighton running in the early days.

Born in the Kistler Valley, he attended the "celebrated" Ontario Veterinary College.  Snyder made the papers frequently, known for his cure for tetanus in horses, he performed hernia operations, and removed tumors.  He was also always prepared to put a horse or cow down if he had to.  Dead animals were then taken to B.J. Kistler's animal fertilizer plant in Jamestown.

The gambling in town most definitely centered on the Fair's horse racing.  Purses of $100 or more were often touted in the papers.  Horses from places like Stroudsburg and Allentown would come here to race our local mares.  Snyder was known for always having the nicest, newest and fastest mares as the Carbon Advocate would often announce.  He and Jonathan Kistler were known to trade gray mares with each other as well as Snyder buying from horse trader Knaus and others in Allentown.

Snyder encountered a run of some paid luck starting in the fall of 1902.  In September, a half-drunk horse thief entered town and made off with one of Snyder's thoroughbreds and one owned by William Walters of town.  Unknowingly, the Rev G. G. Kunkle of Mauch Chunk accepted a ride from a "half-drunken" man who drove him from Packerton down the Mansion House hill.

Rev Kunkle said the man drove so recklessly that he tried several times to have the man stop and let him off.  However he drove the horse so hard and into the wall that the horse died.  Kunkle walked home, thinking little of it until he heard of the horse thefts.  The next morning the dead horse of the Mauch Chunk mountain road was found to be Snyder's valuable track horse.

It is believed the horse thief went back to Lehighton and then stole the Walters' horse.  That horse was found dead a few days after on the Blue Mountain.

Then in early June 1903, Snyder's stables were struck by lightning and two of his horses were killed.  It did not mention the specific location of these stables.  One article in 1893 implied he owned stables on Seventh St and was trying to get council to open up Alum Street through to his property there.  His stolen horse was valued at $750, a vast sum in those days.

Following Snyder in this home was Dr. John Hammel, father of Hammel's Store owner William Hammel.  William was a magician in the old vaudeville days before opening the store at First and Coal Sts.

His brother Andrew was a projectionist at theaters in town before opening Hammel's Gas Station near today's Mahoning Elementary school (the small white shed on the opposite side of the road was the station and is still there.)  He was also the projectionist at the Mahoning Valley Drive-in for years.

Lehighton the Borough was only six months old when the famous Dan Rice Circus came to town in June.  A one “mile-long” parade was sent down First St to try to lure townsfolk into the show at fifty-cents a head.

However, as one team of Rice’s horses approached the lower park, the team became “spooked,” supposedly due to the severe from Kistler’s tannery.

The team made a deadly trot toward one of Lehighton’s earliest hotels, the “Carbon House,” which sat on the corner of First and North Streets (below today’s library).  Some reports say it was a Mauch Chunk man, others that it was a man from the Mahoning Valley, who was killed (or so severely injured he wasn’t expected to live) trying to arrest the team.

(Read David Carlyon’s book “Dan Rice: The Most Famous Man You Never Heard of.”)  Rice was once considered for candidacy for president.


The Carbon House, from North and First Sts,
at the corner below the library ~ Circa 1900.
Another Lehighton tanner and pioneer resident was Daniel Olewine.  He and his wife Esther (Zoll) originated from Towamensing Township.  Olewine first journeyed to Mauch Chunk as a tanner.  But by 1856 he built his own enterprise at Seventh and Bridge Streets in Lehighton in 1856.

Today the former Penn Lace building stands where the tannery once operated.

Olewine was a founding president of First National Bank in Lehighton in 1875.  This bank was first housed in a portion of Joseph Obert’s First St residence in the 1880s.

The bank later became the Hazleton National Bank that opened for business in its once thoroughly modern stone-façade building.  Though now vacant, it is still an impressive downtown building that first opened in 1910.

Olewine’s tannery burned down in 1873.  At that point he retired to his spacious brick home next door that still stands at 600 Bridge St.  As mentioned earlier, the tannery was then rebuilt by B. J. Kuntz who operated it into the 1890s.

Daniel Olewine was father-in-law to two well known Lehighton residents: Chief clerk of the LVRR Car Dept Franklin Pierce Lentz (Clara Olewine) and William S. Koch (Susan Esther Olewine) of the well-known Koch farm in southwest Lehighton.
Isborn Koch and his brother William S. once ran a cigar
factory in downtown Lehighton.  Their partnership
dissolved in 1882.  I.S. continued on while W.S.
went full-time into farming.

William was just one of the first three Koch brothers to live in Lehighton, all sons of Daniel and Mary Ann Koch of Northampton County.  Besides, William there was Isborn S. and Milton.  Until 1882, Isborn and William were in the cigar manufacturing business together in downtown Lehighton.

Isborn continued in cigars while William furthered himself in his large 200-acre farm in the southwest corner of town.  (One of several unsolved Lehighton deaths was once solved by I.S. Koch, search this story for more on that).

A portion of this farm became the Small and Koch Dairy Farm with William’s son and son-in-law Reuben Koch running the dairy until the mid 1930s.  It later became Geurstlaurer’s and still operates today as Zimmerman’s Dairy.

From the horse drawn days of Small and Koch Dairy.  Originally started on William S. Koch's farm by his son William "Daniel" Koch  and son-in-law Reuben Small, they first called it Orchard Poultry and Truck Farm.  Reuben Small
arrived in the Lehigh Valley for business school and met and married 'the farmers' daughter' Esther Koch
in 1905.  Small and Koch operated the farm until the mid-Depression.  (Small & Koch photos are courtesy of Lois Small).
Reuben Small (left) and William "Daniel" Koch left in the early 1900s at the Small and Koch Dairy in the southwest corner of Lehighton.

Small and Koch Dairy was the first Carbon County dairy to pasteurize milk.  It was also the only diary of the over 268 in the county to receive a state department of health satisfactory rating in 1916.  (See footnotes for more on Reuben Small).

Lehighton was also home to two of the three Lentz brothers from Colonel John Lentz.  Col Lentz was a soldier in the War of 1812 and later, though advanced in age, led a defense of Harrisburg when Lee’s army advanced there in the summer of 1863.

One of these sons, Lafayette of Mauch Chunk, made a fortune in the coal fields.  Lentz Trail along Mauch Chunk lake and creek is named for him.

Lafayette’s son, Horace DeYoung Lentz, graduated Harvard Law in 1891.  He in turn endowed a scholarship there that still provides full tuition to any Carbon resident who attends Harvard Law.  Current resident Neil Makhija of Lehighton is the only living person who has benefitted from this trust.

Here in Lehighton, John S. Lentz lived at Third and Alum Streets, today’s “Schaeffer Funeral Home.”  He was superintendent of the Packerton shops.

Franklin Pierce Lentz lived at the former brick home of his father-in-law Daniel Olewine.  He held various positions with the LVRR including chief clerk of the car department at the Packerton Yard as well as Justice of the Peace in Lehighton.  He was educated at Lehighton’s “Academy” school.
The crowning achievement Frederick Leuckel's life of work in Lehighton, his 1899 building still stands today.  Neither Frederick and his son John who completed the building would live long to enjoy it.
Both men were dead 
by October 1899.  (Most photos without photo credit are from the Haupt family collection).

Another pioneer immigrant of Lehighton was Frederick Leuckel, his building is still prominent in the downtown.  Born in Germany in 1807, Frederick Leuckel came to America by way of Amsterdam with $40 to his name.

He apprenticed there for seven years as a butcher.  He then made a 130-day voyage to New York City at the age of twenty-three.  He worked in the sugar factory in Easton and started a meat shop there before moving to Lehighton.  He married another German émigré Lecetta Lenzler.

Leuckel rose to financial prominence from the hard-work of his butcher shop, to investing in real estate, banks, and other businesses.  He was a major shareholder in at least four banks: two in Mauch Chunk, one bank in Catasauqua, as well as in Lehighton’s First National.

By the time of his 1875 “retirement,” he was one of our town’s wealthiest self-made men.
This circa 1908 fire next to the Leuckel building led the way for
Citizen's National Bank to construct its stone facade building next door
in around 1909.

The ‘Leuckel Building,’ completed in 1899, was the former home of Lehighton’s post office and was home to Leuckel’s and Olewine’s “First National Bank.”   It later housed the “Citizen’s National Bank.”

A fire next door around 1908 led the way for “Citizen’s” to build its prominent stone-façade modern bank building next door.  First Federal, the last and most recent bank that occupied this building, added a more modern metal face to it in the 1970s.

Lehighton has had its shares of fires.  Many of these will be detailed in 25 stop trolley tour guide book being published by the Sesquicentennial Committee.  But many businesses have been relocated or otherwise affected by the many downtown fires over the years.  The tour book will chronicle the major ones from the 1930s Elks fire, to the 1950s North First St and the 1960s South First St fires.
Here is the bunting of the opening
of the new Citizen's National Bank
building with the Leuckel
Building to the left.  The building
still stands today, however the last
bank, First Federal, covered it with
a more modern looking metal facade.
Serfas Motors before May 1918 fire - Looking north on Iron St,
with the former Trinity Lutheran Church tower at Third and Iron
in the distance.  (This Serfas family spelled their name with one 's'.)

Serfas Motors burned to the ground in May of 1918 and a three-story brown brick building went in its place.  (It is currently a Blue Ridge Cable office behind the former Times News building.)


Within the personal collection of dairyman Reuben Small are pictures of burned out cars from a "Lehighton garage fire."  Though no one is certain these are of the Serfas Motors, it is certainly a possibility.  These photos will appear at the end.
This is the Serfas fire from May 1918, taken from the south side of
Iron St, looking toward the alley behind what would one day by the
the Opera House/Bayer Building/Times News Building.  The long
building in the background was the original band hall and still stands.  Look at the end of this story for fire pictures from the Reuben Small personal collection from this time period. 

Eventually, sometime before 1946, Moyer and Haupt had their first garage there.  By 1946 they took over the former Acme building at 200 to 206 North First St and began moving their Ford dealership there, this being another currently building housing BRC offices today.

Later, Moyer and Haupt moved out to Route 443 with an Edsel dealership, this dealership now trades as "Lehighton Ford."  They also operated a service station at the corner of Eighth and Mahoning Sts, today it is a medical center in the 1940s.
Moyer and Haupt on Iron St pre-1946.  Not the brick ornaments
above the row of windows.  Those can still be seen today on
this building currently housing some Blue Ridge Cable offices
at the alley behind the former Times News Building.

This picture shows Moyer and Haupt converting the old Acme
back into a garage.  Prior to it being Acme, it housed Otto Kropp's
First St garage.  Today it is the main Lehighton BRC office.

Prior to the Acme occupying 200 North First, Otto Kropp had a garage there.  He also had a Studebaker and Hudson dealership in the area of our current library.  Otto must have been quite a character.  It has been said that he once made a late-night car-swap deal with gangster "Legs" Diamond, a bootlegger who operated between New York and Philadelphia.

In 1937, Otto and his wife hosted Dr. J. Lavarowitz who was president of the "Rambling Hobos of America."  Otto was the grandfather who raised the well-known Lehighton geography teacher Michael "Corky" Kordilla.

Another well-known Lehighton business that grew, burned, and moved to another street was Kistler's Hardware.
Here is Mahlon Kistler (left) and business parnter William F. Hamilton in his mid-1920s First St Hardware Store.
It transferred to his son Mahlon "Jake" in 1957 and later to his
step-son George Griffith.  The store continues today on Second St as "Lehighton Hardware."  Hamilton was born in Scranton and was a boilermaker for the LVRR in 1910.  He died of a stroke in 1935 at the age of 50.
(Kistler pictures appear courtesy of Paula Kistler Ewaniuk.)

Kistler’s Lehighton Hardware would later move to Second Street, its current location.  Kistler started his hardware store in 1925 and ran a progressive business model, taking pride in decorating his front window.  In 1957 he handed the reins over to his son Mahlon Jr.  In 1963 they were burned out and moved to its current location on Second St.  The business went from Mahlon Jr's step-brother George Griffith.

The show window of Kistler's first hardware store included shotguns, shells and stuffed raccoons.  See the end of this story for the new store front further up First St that later burned in a 1963 fire, sending the store to Second St.
Curiously, Kistler's Hardware was located at 237 North First St,  in what would be in today's Rite Aid parking lot.  After the fire, the A&P, which was then located in today's Lehighton Hardware's Second St building, built the 14,000 square foot building Rite Aid uses today.  The A&P left the current Rite Aid building back in the 1980s.

One of the longest tenured corner grocery stores in Lehighton was Cal Haas' store at the corner of Fifth and Coal.  It served their neighborhood with credit for groceries from 1930 to 1996.  The last thirty years it was ron by Cal's son Robert "Bobby" Haas, who was known for his regimented scheduled coffee breaks at the Beacon 443 Diner.
Here are some of the Haas family from the 1955 celebration of
the 200 year anniversary of the Gnadenhutten Massacre.  From Left:
Robert Haas, his wife Geri Haas, Cal Haas, and daughter
Madeline (Haas) Kreiss Folweiler.  (Madeline's first husband
Ezra Kreiss was lost in Operation Tiger in WWII.  She re-married
Chester Folweiler, another WWII veteran.

The Trainer family had a corner store on Third and Cypress Sts.  It was taken over by Mel Everett and Dick Koch as "Ev-Ko" furniture and home appliances in 1966.  A fire destroyed the business in 1968 and the pair split in 1974.  Everett continued there in furniture and Koch established himself on Coal St where they remain today.

Mel's brother Arlington "A.W." Everett's furniture frame business in Franklin Township is also still running today, though now they specialize in frames for lift chairs.









Like Leuckel, Joseph Obert was another German immigrant butcher who prospered here.  He opened a dry goods business in Lehighton in the 1870s to which he parlayed into farm land speculation.

He eventually built one of the largest pork and cattle processing and packing plants in the east.  His sons continued the business into the 1930s.

Livestock would arrive on the LVRR and enter Obert’s stockyard on the east side of First St.  Pigs and cattle (but mostly pigs) were then marched across the street and up the alley between what is today Alfie’s Pizza and the former Hinkle’s Downtown Grille (a building first built by Obert and once held “Malta Hall” on the second floor.
This building still stands across the alley from
Obert's (today's "Alfies") and was built by Obert
after the "Lyric Theater" was torn down.  It was
home to Losos and Sondheim clothiers (who
once occupied part of the Obert building).
The second floor once housed the Knights of
Malta and a portion of Obert's slaughter
house can be seen rear left.  Look for interior
pictures of this building at the end of this
article.  Most will also remember the most
recent owner of this building was
Hinkle's Downtown Grille.

The large slaughter house was located on what is today a municipal parking lot behind Alfies.  The block across from this alley, once was known as the Obert block.

The Obert’s lived at both his sprawling building in front of his slaughter house on First Street as well as another home he built later on South Second near Trinity Lutheran Church (now owned by Barrett Ravenhurst and Rick Brong).
The beautiful Victorian-era home was first built by Joseph and Catherine Obert in the 1880s or 1890s at
212 South Second, catty-corner from Trinity Lutheran Church and is one of the 25 stops of the Sesquicentennial
Trolley tour.  Seen here in this photo is Joseph and Catherine's son William and their grandson Horace
Obert Sr.  William's wife was Florence.  Horace Obert Jr was the long time chiropractor in Lehighton up until
is recent retirement a few years ago.  The new and only third owners of the home are currently Barrett Ravenhurst
and Rick Brong.

The three Gaston brothers (Carson, Wayne, and LeRoy who run the pizza shop), are the current owners of Obert’s First St property and have done well maintaining the building’s former glory.
This picture gives quite a glimpse at the classes of society of early 1900 Lehighton.  The Victorian-era garbed
ladies and gentlemen on the yard versus the blood-stained work clothes of the man in the street.  You can
also see Loso's and Sondheim's former location before moving across the alley.

It is here where we can see the meeting point today.

By studying the many buildings in Lehighton and by getting to know our history, we can see where our past meets our future.  The Obert and Leuckel buildings are a good place to start.

The once ornate dental work and finials are gone.  The large rectangular sign that proudly touted the “Leuckel Building 1899” now says “White’s Trading.”

Just like the once powerful anthracite and transportation industries are likely never to return, the works and fortunes of our pioneer residents are also mostly long gone.

But we are here today because of them.  And their legacy to us is to live in a town where their dreams once prospered.  It is for us to fulfill that potential as we are fit to do.

Lehighton Deaths of the 1890s:

The 1890s were hard on many of Lehighton’s most prominent pioneer citizens.  Lewis Graver died in January 1892 (just weeks after his and Leah’s 50th wedding anniversary).

Joseph Obert died in June of 1897 at the age of 76.  He once donated the land at the corner of Second and Iron to build Zion’s United Church of Christ.

Moses Heilman died in May of 1898.

Also, two sons of two early Lehighton tanners died prematurely in 1898.  Daniel Olewine Sr died at seventy-nine in March of 1895.  But his son Daniel Irwin Olewine died of typhoid fever in Philadelphia in January 1898 at the age of forty-two.

Another Lehighton connected tragedy occurred in May of 1898 when Burgess B. J. Kuntz’s son Edward was seriously injured from an exploding gasoline tank at a Missouri steel company.  He had just begun working there as a chemist.

Upon receiving the news via telegram, Postmaster and former tanner and mayor Kuntz immediately left for Missouri.  However he was unable to reach his son before he passed.  His remains were shipped back to Lehighton for burial.  Edward J. Kuntz was only twenty-five.

Ironically, in 1899, in the same year that their building was completed, both Frederick and John Leuckel died.  Frederick in June and his son John died unexpectedly in October from stomach difficulties.

Incidentally, John Leuckel’s mother-in-law, who was also the mother of Lehighton’s well-known planning mill owner Henry Miller died in an unfortunate accident just months after John’s death.  Mrs George Miller died at the age of 79 from a fractured her skull after falling into the family well at their Franklin home.

The Wilkes-Barre Bank Heist in 1870 leads to arrests and a murder:

My favorite story involves a pair of bank robbers who hit a bank in Wilkes-Barre in 1870 who came to Lehighton to lay low.  The four suspicious men were “loafing about” Mantz’s Hotel (in the block south of the Hi-Rise today) and rumors quickly spread around town about the character and deeds of these men.

Forty year old Constable John “J. T.” Weston took the gossip seriously.  The robbers instantly drew their guns on the constable’s approach, making their escape out the back of the hotel.  And though it was February, they crossed the LVRR tracks and went into the river, all the while during a “raging snowstorm.”

Weston gathered a posse of men, all armed, and made their way to Weissport, to the vicinity of old bottling works (behind Hofford’s red-brick mill at the end of the bridge owned today by Tom McEvilly) where the crooks were said to leave the river.

The men were captured later, but not without resistance.  Their attempts to fire at the posse were in vain as their weapons were too wet from their mid-winter swim.  Rumors quickly spread that the $30,000 in cash, bonds, and securities were stashed on the mountainside somewhere opposite of Packerton dip, in the Long Run section of East Weissport.

The robbers were sentenced to 20 years in the Eastern State penitentiary and were said to have died there.  However by 1906, it was speculated that they communicated the whereabouts to other prisoners who upon their release came to town to claim the treasure.

In May 1906 three strangers arrived in town, at least one of them was well-dressed and seemed to be carrying a large sum of money.  He and a friend got into fisticuffs in a Lehighton “saloon” in the afternoon, the friend threatening to have the other arrested.

Later, word spread through town that these men, along with another man, were seen digging in the area of the missing bank loot.  That night, three shots rang out in a yard of a home on the outer edge of town.

They found the well dressed man with three bullets in his lungs, with the muzzle blast burned into his clothes, shot at close range.

Suicide was ruled out.  He had a watch and about $35 on him.  Authorities suspected the clever perpetrator left a small portion to give the appearance of suicide over robbery.

Constable J. T. Weston was born in Carbon’s “frontier” logging settlement of Sandy Run.  He died in Allentown in 1914.

Lehighton's Three Stone-facade Banks:

At about the same time Citizen's Bank was going in, the Hazleton National Bank arrived in town and likewise wanted to build an impressive structure to lure Lehighton's abundant cash flows.  Hazleton took over the former First National Bank.

First St was once known as “Bank St," most likely referring to the street closest to the bank of the river.

The Hazelton Bank building was opened in December of 1911, and for the convenience of a parking lot and modern drive-up window, moved to the corner of First and North Sts in 1963.  The original stone face of Citizens Bank has long been obscured by metal-work meant to give the old bank a “modern” look.  It was most recently known as First Federal Bank.  Another bank, on South First, was once known as Dine Bank in 1916, then later Bank of Lehighton, then People’s Bank, and most recent
          "Stumble in, Fall Out" - The Life and Art of William "Hicks" Bergenstock      Cache   Translate Page      
Hicks was living as caretaker on a remote piece of unoccupied land owned by Tom "Spook" Doughtery in Meckesville.

“Aren’t you afraid to live out here, all by yourself?” asked the young visitor.

William "Hicks" Bergenstock outside Berger's Hotel in Albrightsville.
Most who knew him considered "Hicks" to be his last name.
His paintings were simply signed "Wm. Hicks."
His gravestone simply reads "Bergenstock."

Hicks answered by reaching beneath his pillow.  His arm swept through the air in a circle, retrieving the revolver in one motion.  

But his index finger deflexed on the return arch.  The two reeled from shock of the crack as dust swirled around the sunlight coming through the plank and clapboard wall.   
The youngster had to promise never to mention it to anyone what happened, least of all to Spook.


The one room shanty was one of many homes for Hicks.  Both as a child and throughout his life, he moved around a lot.  

Besides Spook, Hicks lived with Roger Meckes, at Bergers Hotel, at the Getzs, and with anyone who would take him in, in exchange for paint or wall-paper hanging. 

Hicks cultivated a simple and happy life, enriched by his artistic and musical talents even though it sprouted from a childhood garden of turmoil.

Adversity can pull a family together or it can tear it asunder.  


William Alfred "Hicks" Bergenstock was born to Alfred and Emma (Beidler) on January 25, 1890.  He was the grandson of a Civil War private, Henry Bergenstock. 

Alfred and Emma Beidler married at Allentown’s Salem United Methodist Church when he was twenty-one and Emma was one day shy of her eighteenth birthday.  The next year, Alfred’s father died.

Their family soon followed.  Alfred and Emma first had three boys and then four girls.  William or “Hicks” was the second oldest.  All were the men worked as moulders in an iron works early on.  
His paintings were signed with a simple "Wm. Hicks."   Either this was more
convenient than
writing out "Bergenstock" or he simply preferred to be known
by Hicks is unclear.  His talent was undeniable. 

For Mabel's 15th birthday in 1911 there was much music and merriment.  

Hicks sang bass in a quartet self-proclaimed as “Holy-tare-ra Rib-and-tare-re” with fellow iron moulder Adam Strohl (baritone), Peter Brendel (second tenor) and “Monks” Reese (first tenor).  

Hicks also played some “ragtime” songs on the piano.  The night was complete with food and a session of haas-im-pfeffer cards too.

A similar time was had later that year for the 20th birthday of brother Walter on Halloween.  This time, it was sister Mabel who gave the musical entertainment. 

(Mabel’s son, Russell Dauscher would later distinguish himself musically, playing trombone in the Allentown Band, Les Baer Orchestra, his own Russell Dauscher Orchestra, the Pioneer Band, Catasauqua Band, and the Dorney Park Riverboat Band.)
One of William "Hicks" Bergenstock paintings that remain at Chubby
Berger's Hotel in Albrightsville.

The Bergenstock family seemed to be on a pleasant path in 1911.

But there were unsteady tremors.

It was another year and another move into another rented apartment.  Father Alfred testified on behalf of Landlord Ed Henninger owner of a hotel known for its salacious and unsavory characters which was targeted by the Anti-Saloon league of Philadelphia.  
All the Bergenstock boys started work by the age of fourteen or younger.  And they all moved out by 1915.  Likewise the four sisters married their way out of the house by the time they were 18.  

Hicks seemed to bounce from job to job too.  At times a moulder, then in a shoe shop, then back as an apprentice in the steel works.  Somewhere along the way he lost an eye and permanently injured his right side.

He had a manner of walking that involved lunging forward by lifting his entire hip and leg as a stationary unit.  An injury that certainly could have occurred in the iron works in his young adult years. 

All three brothers were of the age to serve in World War I, but only Walter has a draft card.  Perhaps Hicks had already been disqualified due to physical impairment.

By 1917 Alfred was brought before the Allentown Aldermen on at least two separate occasions for desertion and non-support of his wife.  He offered some money to her, but Emma refused it on the grounds it wasn’t enough.

Hick’s brother Private Walter “Ellsworth” suffered a “serious wounding” in battle in September 1918.

The final unraveling of the Bergenstock family occurred on August 17th 1928.  

Alfred was estranged from Emma and living at the Order of Owls’ home in Allentown, working there as bartender.  At around 3:00 pm, Alfred placed a gun to his head and ended his life at 60.

Very little is known of Hicks during the twenty year period between the great wars.  

He disappears. His name is absent from all census and city records.

We do know creativity lurked within his mind taking shape in music, painting, and in making miniature toys of wood.  
Jean Keiper of Albrightsville has many fond memories of Hicks as a
young girl.  Like most people, she accepted for fact that his name
was William Hicks.  Not only did he sing for her and took time to
teach her to paint, he also gave her these miniature toys.  Several
residents of the area have similar items and paintings.

The wood work was a leftover from his shoe cobbler days.  

Many residents of Albrightsville still cherish these items made by Hicks.

One of his longest residences was at the American Hotel in old Mauch Chunk (today’s Inn at Jim Thorpe).  He lived there from at least 1940 to 1942.

Toys in Scale: The cradle is only 5 inches long.


It appears during this time he permanently severed all ties to his family.


On his draft card, Hicks put down Ben Freed as the person who would always know him.  (Freed owned the American Hotel and Hicks no doubt painted for him.)  (Hicks' brother Walter answered the same question on his draft card as "No One.")

Today, residents of Albrightsville have nothing but fond memories of him.

During one stay with the Getzs, Arsula Getz watched Hicks walk backwards up the back stairs to his room.  When she pressed him for a reason, Hicks replied, “So I won’t have to turn around when I come down tomorrow.”

One of many of Hicks' paintings that survive in the area.  A talented fine
art painter, he survived on painting interiors of homes and exteriors of barns.

When one Albrightsville couple was set to leave on a short honeymoon to Allentown, Hicks slipped one of his glass eyes into the bride's suitcase, explaining he could "look out" after them while they were gone.


Hicks lived a nomadic, bucolic life, never owing to a master.

Owning little in possession, still he rarely imposed on others for things like rides to town.  

Otherwise, he was as free as a bird.  He lived as though somehow whatever he needed would always be provided.

For one of his last homes, Hicks had permission to squat in a small, one-room house across from the Albrightsville Fire Company.  Neither a drunk or a teetotaler, Hicks knew how to have a good time.  A sign at the road welcomed all of similar spirit: "Stumble in and Fall out."

He lived the longest of everyone in his family, further evidence of a life well lived.




William Alfred Bergenstock died in Lehighton in February 1982, just after his 92nd birthday.  

One of his last paint jobs was for St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Albrightsville, the little white church with its own little graveyard atop a plateau in Northern Carbon County, a green patch of paradise of solitude for Hicks.

This last exchange assured Hicks of his final resting place there. 

He painted Christ's ascension, transcending the earth through the clouds.

A simple marker marks the end of a life that knew how to live a simple and happy life.

One lasting story and testament to his keen wit and lifestyle lies in the history of this painting at St. Paul's.  The church paid his room at Berger's Hotel while he worked on the Christ mural, a job like many that he would stretch out as long as possible to reap maximum benefit of his housing allowance.

But along the way, Hicks kept the congregation in stitches and baiting them to church each week, making the curious wonder what he could have done next.  One week Christ had a wristwatch.  The next he'd sport a handle-barred mustache or maybe a cigarette flopping from his lip.

If only these and other walls could talk.


One of Hicks' final works, it assured his final resting place.
St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Albrightsville.









Hicks is nearly in the far corner of St. Paul's graveyard.  A simple marker
reads "Bergenstock."








The Remains:

Alfred Bergenstock defended the reputation of Ed Henninger, an Allentown saloon owner, in court.  He either moonlighted or patronized his hotels (the Astoria and American) in Allentown.  

The Philadelphia Anti-Saloon League brought the case to trial in Allentown in 1909 after a sting operation.  They produced a long list of women (of dubious backgrounds) who were called to testify. 

One woman was accused of feeding her infant while drinking a beer.  Livelihoods were questioned.  Detectives testified the rates quoted to them by these women as $4 for a short time or $7 for overnight.  

Two of women refused to take the oath upon the Bible because they eschewed belief in the Christian faith.  Researching the names of these young women reveals a subculture of struggled and shortened lives.

None of the brothers ever settled and stayed in one place very long.  All of them seemed restless.  They boarded in short stretches mostly with strangers, occasionally with a sister, doing manual labor jobs.  

Only one of the three brothers may have married.  There is some evidence that Walter "Ellsworth" was briefly married in 1922 to an Elenoria Buchert.  If so, they had one child, Charles, who died after 25 days in September of 1922.  

None of Walter's subsequent records show he was ever married.  Severely wounded in action in September 1918, his 1934 application for veterans benefits declares no wife or children.  His WWII draft card answered "No one" to the question "Who will always know you?"  He is buried alone in Allentown's "Grandview Cemetery."  He died in February 1960. 

At one point Walter lived with Mabel’s estranged husband in Whitehall.  Mabel supported herself and their son by working in a cigar factory in Allentown.

~

Sister Helen spent the last 10 months of her life at the Allentown State Hospital.  A year prior, she took a near fatal dose of bichloride of mercury.  She died nearly two years later of the effects.

Though Alfred had deserted her in life, Emma stayed true to him in death.  She arranged herself to be buried next to him in Highland Memorial Park in Allentown.  

Helen is buried with them.   She was the youngest and first of the siblings to die. It is unclear where her surviving husband Charles is buried.  

~


Oldest brother Edward Henry Bergenstock apparently drifted his way out to Ohio.  Social Security records indicate an "Edward H. Bergenstock" born in Pennsylvania on 1 December 1888, died there in November 1963.  His headstone in Highland Hills Ohio gives no birth information.  There is no record of him having a family there.

~

Along with his father, two friends of Hicks also took their own lives.

Adam Strohl, an early friend from the iron foundry and quartet partner, drown himself in the Lehigh River in 1935.  He left a widow Emma at 529 Hickory St in Allentown.

American Hotel owner Ben Freed was two years younger than Hicks.  Of Jewish-Russian descent, he emigrated here from England.  He distinguishing himself locally by owning movie houses in Weatherly and White Haven before purchasing the American Hotel.  He served America in WWI.

Freed took his own life feeling despondent over the loss of control over his bowels, bladder and legs in 1959.  He took a heavy rubber band to tighten a plastic bag over his head.

Mabel seemed to have been the one who held the family together.  Her name appears more than any other on important family papers and death certificates.  

Their mother Emma lived her last years in her home.  Mabel's husband Calvin appears to have deserted her sometime after Emma’s death in 1936.

Sister Eva is buried with her husband Fred Brown in Northwood Cemetery in Emmaus.


Mabel's estranged husband is buried in St. Mark's in Allentown.  

There's no record of a grave for Mabel.

There is no way of knowing whether Hicks knew about the deaths of his family and friends.  Those who knew him cannot recall him ever talking about his family.  

Speaking to two relatives of his alive today, a nephew and great nephew, neither man can recall knowing more than being related to the Bergenstocks.  

Neither man knew their uncle nor had any evidence from his life.

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a story of American ingenuity. The Philadelphia Phillies postponed a game Monday. They'd left the tarps off the field during last weekend's massive rain. Hoping to dry an impossibly soggy infield, the grounds crew brought out flame throwers, or more properly speaking, blowtorches. The dirt still wasn't dry enough for last night, but the Phillies hope to play the Nationals today, squeezing it in before Hurricane Florence. It's MORNING EDITION.

          2000 NLCS MVP- Mets Pitcher: Mike Hampton (2000)      Cache   Translate Page      
Michael William Hampton was born on September 9, 1972 in Brooksville, Florida. The five foot ten left handed pitcher was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 6th round of the 1990 draft . Hampton had a modest minor league career, winning a high of 13 games (13-8) with a 3.12 ERA at A ball San Bernardino in 1992.

In 1993 he made the Seattle staff out of Spring Training. He debuted in Detroit allowing four runs to the Tigers & taking a loss in four innings of work. That day the Mariners lost 20-3. On April 23rd he earned his first big league win, it was a middle relief appearance against the A.L. New York team. He remained on the staff through July going 1-3 with a save & two holds with a 9.53 ERA. He was sent down to AA Jacksonville, where he went 6-4 the rest of the year. In the off season he was traded to the Houston Astros along with Mike Felder in exchange for Eric Anthony.

He spent six seasons in Houston gradually developing into a top starter. Hampton kept his ERA under four every year with the Astros although he did give up a large number of hits & walks throughout his career. He gradually increased his victories each season, going from nine in 1995 to ten in 1996. That year he was 10- 10, striking out 101 batters pitching in 160 innings, while posting a 3.59 ERA.

In 1997 he won 15 games (15-10) second on the first place Astros staff to Daryl Kile (19-7). Hampton posted a 3.83 ERA, throwing a pair of shut outs, striking out 139 batters while pitching 223 innings (9th in the NL). His 34 starts & seven complete games were both third most in the league. On his down side he allowed 217 hits (4th in the league) 77 walks (6th in the league) & 95 earned runs (8th in the league). In the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves, he took the loss in Game #2 allowing six runs in 4.2 innings.

In 1998 he was 11-7 getting to the NLDS again , this time losing to the NL Champion San Diego Padres. He earned no decision in the series. By 1999 he was one of the league’s top pitchers, leading the NL with 22 wins, and a .846 winning percentage. He was third in the NL with a 2.90 ERA, striking out a career high 177 batters (9th in the NL) in 239 innings pitched (4th in the NL). He threw three complete games with two shut outs.

He was the Sporting News Pitcher of the Year, coming in runner up to Arizona's Randy Johnson for the Cy Young Award. Hampton made his first ALL Star appearance that year as well. He was one of two twenty game winners on the Astros staff, the other being Jose Lima (21-10). The Astros got to another post season but exited in the first round once again. Hampton was always a good hitting pitcher and was one of the best of his era. In 1999 he hit .311 with seven walks and 10 RBIs. 

Houston took advantage of Hampton's big season; with it being the final year of his contract they put him on the trade block. In order to not pay out a big contract they traded him to the New York Mets in December 1999. In the deal the Astros insisted the Mets take along Derek Bell who had been nothing but trouble for Houston. In exchange the Mets gave up Octavio Dotel & Roger Cedeno. He may have had a short career in New York but the one season he pitched here, was an important one. He was the last piece Bobby Valentine needed in order to get his team to the World Series.

Hampton’s 2000 season didn’t start out so well, on Opening Day in a game played in Japan, he lost to the Chicago Cubs, allowing two runs over five innings pitched. He started out the year at 0-3 before getting his first win, which came at Shea Stadium on April 18th against the Milwaukee Brewers. In May he won four straight game going 4-0 in the month. In the first three of those games he allowed just one run in 18 innings of work. He tossed one complete game while going into the 8th inning or beyond three times.

On May 20th he came to bat with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 4th inning facing Omar Dahl with the Mets down 1-0. He singled driving in the first two runs, in what turned out to be a 15-8 Mets win over the Chicago Cubs. Later in the year on August 7th, he helped his own caude & drove in two more Mets runs with a single in Houston, leading to a 6-5 win.

On June 25th he pitched a five hit shutout at Shea Stadium, striking out nine Pittsburgh Pirates. He won another three straight from there into July. On July 9th he pitched seven innings of shutout ball, to beat the AL New York team 2-0 in the subway series at Shea. On July 27th he pitched another complete game in the second game of a double header, beating the Montreal Expos. From there he went on another four game win streak throughout the month of August, topped off by an eight inning, three hitter against the Arizona Diamondback.

He was 13-7 entering September but had a rough 0-3 start to the September pennant race. On September 2nd he pitched into the 9th inning but took a tough 2-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. In his next start he pitched into the 8th inning but the Mets were shut out by Vicente Padilla & the Phillies. On September 23rd he beat the Phillies & then in his last start of the regular season, he pitched five shutout innings to beat the Montreal Expos at Shea Stadium.

He finished up the year at 15-10, second on the Mets staff to Al Leiter's 16 wins & tenth most wins in the NL. He struck out 151 batters, also second on the staff to Leiter’s 200 strike outs. Hampton led the club in ERA 3.10 (the 5th best in the NL) innings pitched (217) complete games (3) & one shutout. For the second year in a row he also allowed the fewest HRs per nine innings (0.414) in the National League. At the plate he hit .274 driving in 8 runs, leading all NL pitchers.



Post Season: In the NLDS he opened up the Series in San Francisco but gave up five runs taking the loss to the Giants. Hampton made up for it & secured his place in Mets history in the NLCS. In the series opener at St. Louis' Busch Stadium, Hampton pitched seven shutout innings, allowing just six hits while striking out four Cardinals. The Mets took the Opener 6-2. He saved his best outing of the year, for the pennant clinching Game #5 at Shea Stadium.

Hampton went the distance pitching a three hit complete game shutout, striking out eight Cardinals in front a wild sold out, Shea Stadium crowd. (centerfieldmaz was in attendance that historic night) It ranks as one of the best Mets post season pitching performances in the clubs history. He got the last out when Cardinals pinch hitter Rick Wilkins flew out to centerfielder Jay Payton. As the Mets celebrated, Hampton was lifted off the ground by Mike Piazza as the Mets advanced to the World Series. Hampton was voted the MVP of the NLCS.


In the World Series, he took the loss in Game #2 giving up four runs, on eight hits & five walks in six innings pitched of the 6-5 Mets loss. After the 2000 season he upset Met fans by signing with the Colorado Rockies.

The air in Colorado made him an even better hitter; he hit 10 HRs & batted over .300 in two seasons playing there. He won 14 games in the Rocky Mountains but lost 13 and had an ERA of 5.14. Next season he battled injuries and his ERA ballooned over six as he lost 15 games while only winning seven.

He was traded to the Atlanta Braves in 2003 and went 14-8 with a 3.84 ERA getting to another post season. In the NLDS he pitched two games taking a 5-1 loss in the final Game #5 to the Chicago Cubs. That season he won the gold Glove Award, breaking Greg Maddox record of 13 straight.

In 2004 he was 13-9 posting a 4.28 ERA and got no decisions in two games pitched in the NLDS against Houston. In 2005 he had arm trouble and needed Tommy John surgery that September. He missed the entire 2006 season rehabbing his arm. In 2007 he returned but then tore an oblique muscle and had to miss the rest of that season as well. In April 2008 he was to make a highly anticipated return, but while warming up he strained a pectoral muscle & was placed on the DL. He finally returned almost three years later, in July of 2008.


In his first start he allowed six runs to the Phillies in Philadelphia, exiting after four innings. In his next start he allowed four runs in five innings of work. On August 5th he earned his first win in nearly three years, beating the San Francisco Giants. He would go 4-5 with a 4.85 ERA for Atlanta in 2008.

In 2009 he signed with his old team in Houston, taking the role as the number two starter behind the Astros; Roy Oswalt. He went 7-10 with an ERA of 4.07. By the end of the season he needed rotator cuff surgery and missed most of 2010, returning in September with the Arizona D-backs.

In his 16 year career he was 148-115 (249th most wins all time) with a 4.06 ERA. He struck out 1387 batters (226th all time) with 901 walks (157th most all time) in 2268 innings pitched over 409 games. Hampton made 355 starts (183rd all time) with nine shut outs & 21 complete games. He has given up 200 HRs with 1024 earned runs (212th all time most). Hampton has thrown 75 wild pitches (210 all time) Hampton is the only pitcher to win five Silver Slugger Awards.

Men Over 30 - CJ Parker, Brian Bonds

MenOver30 is glad to welcome back 24yo Brian Bonds from Little Rock, AR. Brian is going to help us welcome sexy scruffy daddy CJ Parker. CJ is from a little town outside of Philadelphia called Downingtown and is 39 years young. We asked these two what the longest period of time they«ve been able to not bust a nut. Brian can hold out for 5 days but CJ can hold out for a whole week. Both of these guys have fur on them and the management definitely approves. Both of these guys like hair on their partners as well. When it comes to how kinky these boys get CJ blushes and admits he»s about a 5. Brian considers himself a 9.5 on that kinky scale. Nail down the furniture! Well, opposites attract apparently. We have Mr. Vanilla and Mr. How do you want it? This should be an interesting shoot so let«s get these two started and see where this combination takes us once those clothes come off.

CJ is fixing the sink for Brian and when he»s done he gets ready to go. Brian is thankful he has such a «handy» neighbor and asks if there«s anything he could do to repay him. Friendly neighbor goes from handy to handsy in 2 seconds flat. They start to make out as Brian starts to strip CJ. The shirt comes off revealing CJ»s hairy chest. The chemistry between these two is electric as Brian licks his way south to CJ«s cock. He undoes his tight jeans and shoves that cock down his throat. CJ moans as he orders Brian to swallow his cock all the way to the hilt. Brian greedily complies sliding that fat cock so deep he gags on it. Brian soon wants some of the same as he stands up and shows off the tent in his own briefs. CJ kneels at his feet as he frees that boner. He slides his mouth on that cock as Brian starts to fuck his face. «Spit on it!» he grunts as CJ does what he»s told before going back on that white boy dick. Brian then bends CJ over and goes to town eating that manhole. CJ squirms as that ass gets hungry for more than a tongue sandwich. Brian then stands and gets into position before sliding his fat cock right up that hairy ass. CJ gives it up as Brian pounds that pussy doggy style. He rails into that horny hole pulling his cock almost all the way out before ramming it back in. He takes that ass then missionary then sits back and has CJ ride his cock in a reverse cowgirl as Brian hammers that dick up into that sore hole. All that cock makes CJ blow his load all over his hairy crotch. Brian then jacks his own massive load all over his chest and abs.

          Dollar Losing Ground Ahead Of Data Deluge       Cache   Translate Page      

The dollar got off to a positive start Wednesday, but has turned lower over the course of the trading session. Traders are looking forward to a large number of economic reports over the next two days.

Weekly jobless claims and inflation data are due to be released Thursday morning, while retail sales, industrial production and consumer sentiment are among the numerous reports slated for Friday.

A report released by the Federal Reserve on Wednesday said the U.S. economy expanded at a moderate pace through the end of August.

The Fed's Beige Book is a compilation of anecdotal evidence on economic conditions in the twelve Fed districts released shortly before the central bank makes its decision on monetary policy.

The Beige Book said Dallas reported relatively brisk growth, while Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Kansas City indicated somewhat below average growth.

The report also said consumer spending continued to grow at a modest pace since the last report, and tourism activity expanded, to varying degrees, across the nation.

Producer prices in the U.S. unexpectedly saw a modest decrease in the month of August, according to a report released by the Labor Department on Wednesday. The Labor Department said its producer price index for final demand edged down by 0.1 percent in August after coming in unchanged in July. Economists had expected prices to rise by 0.2 percent.

The dollar rose to an early high of $1.1570 against the Euro Wednesday, but has since retreated to around $1.1635.

Eurozone industrial production decreased for the second straight month in July, Eurostat reported Wednesday. Industrial output slid 0.8 percent month-on-month in July, the same pace of decline as seen in June. Economists had forecast a moderate drop of 0.5 percent.

The buck climbed to an early high of $1.2979 against the pound sterling Wednesday, but has since eased back to around $1.3050.

The greenback has pulled back to around Y111.225 against the Japanese Yen this afternoon, from an early high of Y111.632.

          Beige Book Says U.S. Economy Expanded At Moderate Pace       Cache   Translate Page      

A report released by the Federal Reserve on Wednesday said the U.S. economy expanded at a moderate pace through the end of August.

The Fed's Beige Book is a compilation of anecdotal evidence on economic conditions in the twelve Fed districts released shortly before the central bank makes its decision on monetary policy.

The Beige Book said Dallas reported relatively brisk growth, while Philadelphia, St. Louis, and Kansas City indicated somewhat below average growth.

The report also said consumer spending continued to grow at a modest pace since the last report, and tourism activity expanded, to varying degrees, across the nation.

Looking ahead, the Fed said businesses generally remained optimistic about the near-term outlook, though most districts noted concern and uncertainty about trade tensions.

A number of districts noted that such concerns had prompted some businesses to scale back or postpone capital investment, the Fed added.

The release of the Beige Book comes as the Fed is widely expected to raise interest rates by a quarter point at its next monetary policy meeting later this month.

          Suuf in Senegal      Cache   Translate Page      
I live in the U.S. Recently, I returned from a visit to Senegal, my third. I no longer stay in Dakar but in locations elsewhere.

Years ago, in Philadelphia, I met a man from Dakar, Abe, who would later allow me to accompany him home. It would be my first trip to Africa.

We stayed in Dakar for a week when he said he had to make a trip home. This meant to his birthplace in a small village very southeast in Senegal. I asked to go and, after great consideration, he said yes. We went by car, bus, car again, and many times on foot, for four days, arriving in his home village, deep in south east Senegal.

In the U.S., Abe rountinely had sex with me. We were about the same age, in our 40s. Abe was 100% total top, and I accomodated him as often as he would let me. While considering myself very much a versatile top, I learned first hand the seduction of hearing an elder African accent pouring out the words "I want to f*** you".

But in Senegal, he would not even discuss it. I understood. I'm causcasian. It's Africa. While at his home, his father and his father's brother, men of 70+ years of age, took me into a small home where, to be blunt, promptly undressed and asked me to bathe them. The broken english was so bad, had they not been naked and rubbing each other out I would not have known what they were saying. I later learned they mistakingly thought I was a servant of Abe's. Once they were confident I got the idea of why I was there, as I performed my chores, they began to talk to each other in Wolof as though I was invisible. Sure, I was very nervous, but no one ever had to tell me what elder meant in Africa.

The next day, I was asked if I wanted to visit a nearby National Park and was told that, where we would be going, we would have to stay overnight, in make-shift tents. We would have to stay just outside the Park. I said sure, and Abe helped me simplify my packing. Abe did not travel with us as I am left to the safety of totally strange men. As I find out 1 hour into the walk, men who do not speak english. And this is a really, really big park.

At this time of year it was very dry, and hot, but at night, it would get somewhat agreeable around 2-5am. The night sky would be so crystal clear it was like you could touch it. You would never know there were so many adult African men. From total strangers walking by, speaking only to others in passing, to men camped in small groups. The night air is what cools them, what frees them to think. And they so do like to walk.

After visiting the Park, the last night in the tents, we had a little too much to drink, and several of the men, in Wolof, said they must walk. One thing led to another and I ended up following them ... at 3am.

We walked for sometime, until I realized I could no longer see them, and soon came upon a small camp, no tents, but with a fire that had just been put out, and was still smoldering. As I looked around into the darkenss, I could hear through my dizzyness from the drink, what I thought were giggles, and whispering.

I walked into the woods. My chest began to pound uncontrollably but I could not turn around. Where would I turn to? For a moment, I thought, no one in the world knows exactly where I am at this very moment, and just as I thought how entoxicating and freeing that is, the thought of Abe not knowing where I am shook me.

As the whispering turned into chanting, singing, I came onto a small clearing, around 30 yards in diameter. It was probably just me, but the moon was so bright, it was like the area was lit up like a room. I literally could not see to the other side of the clearing.

But there stood, before me, two very large men, both at least 250 lbs, basically doing what amounted to a slow motioned coregraphed wrestling match. They were surrounded by the men I had followed, some I saw while walking, and several others, all told about 15-18 men. They were all naked. Except for the two wrestlers, none were younger than me.

Eventually I got the nerve to not try to hide in the small bush I found myself in, when I felt both my arms go limp. I'm talking numb. I was led into the circle, and undressed. I felt sure I was about to faint. The feeling was constant. The chanting became a rhythmic rain eventually blurring me into subconsciousness.

Soon, I was startled by this seemingly disturbing argument between one of the wrestlers and an older man, perhaps in his 60s. I was quickly taken back into the woods and kept there for what seemed like forever, but probably about 20-30 minutes. Each time the voices grew loud and aggressive, I would be petted and held more closely. The scent of African sweat only made me more drunk. Several times I felt myself falling to my knees wanting to orally please anything that came about. I was constantly being held up. As best I remember, that's all that happened in the wooded areas.

Then the most strange thing that has ever happened to me in my life occured. All the men around me slowly walked away, one by one, until all I could see was the well lit area near me. Feeling my vision closing in on me ever so subtly, I walked out of the woods into the clearing.

The wrestler, now completely alone, motioned me to him. As I got close I fainted. When I awoke I was being kissed and caressed. He would not stop looking at my eyes. Every time I went to close them, he would get upset. I could not understand anything he said, most the times he wasn't talking to me anyway, but I understood clearly he wanted my eyes open.

In the end, he had his way with me to completion. He made sure of it. But to say this event was only sexual would be a lasting flaw in my character. He dressed me, walked me for awhile, once I noticed he had disappeared, soon others came about, smiling, waving, pointing the direction for me. No more giggling, no more whispering, no more arguing.

What happen to me that night changed my life.

Two days later, on our way back to Dakar, while resting, I asked Abe, who I thought knew nothing about what had happened, would he ever want me to talk about what I did in Africa. He only shook his head. About three days out we are in another National Park, and while being entertained, a white European couple now living in Cape Verde, makes a point of cautioning the other 'tourists' about wandering near National Parks late at night without escort.

I never felt so un-tourist in all my life.
