Annette Funicello, the dark-haired darling of TV´s “The Mickey Mouse Club” in the 1950s who further cemented her status as a pop-culture icon in the ´60s by teaming with Frankie Avalon in a popular series of “beach” movies, died Monday. She was 70. Funicello, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1987 and became a spokeswoman for treatment of the chronic, often-debilitating disease of the central nervous system, died at Mercy Southwest Hospital in Bakersfield, Walt Disney Co. spokesman Howard Green said. Funicello and her husband, Glen Holt, had moved from

Back when "Beach Blanket, Bingo," came out, I remember it being a big deal seeing her at the old drive-in.

You will be missed, Annette. RIP.

Oh no! Not Annette!

Who´s the leader of the band that´s made for you and me?
M-I-C-K-E-Y..M-O-U-S-E

Hey there hi there ho there, you´re as welcome as can be!

M-I-C-K-E-Y...M-O-U-S-E!

I´m a little teary right now, sorry, this big strong veteran can still cry a little remembering rushing home to get settled in by 3:30 pm to watch the gang, Moochie, Dorene, Annette, and the rest of the kids for a half hour of fun and cartoons....Damn, I´m getting old! And on the sameday we lost Margaret Thatcher? Why do the good ones have to go and the rotten ones are still here ruining everything they touch? Only God knows... R.I.P.

My husband, along with every other boy who grew up in the 50´s, has fond memories of her tight sweaters and the two mounds beneath them. It was his first awareness of such enticements.

These things always come in threes - Lilly Pulitzer, Maggie Thatcher and Annette Funicello, all in the last 24 hours.

Correct me if I´m wrong, but wasn´t Annette the girl Mouseketeer who, in addition to being cheerful, friendly, and cute, had a very sensible, level-headed, almost adult demeanor? A good role model for little girls, if my memory serves. R.I.P. You fought a long, tough fight against a terrible disease.

Sorry to hear of her death. She undoubtedly brought much laughter and enjoyment to her fans.
MS sure is hard to figure out. I know 5 people with it (all female). 2 hardly have any affects. The other 3 are wheel-chair bound and getting worse quickly.

I remember growing up in the late ´70´s and ´80´s you always knew summer was here when they started playing the "beach" movies on the late show. And who can forget the "Skippy" peanut butter commercials. I loved Annette Funicello even tho she was a bit before my time...just proves that quality entertainment is timeless.

Credit to Walt Disney, who let Annette use her real last name on the show, back in
the 1950´s... and a fun show it was.
Fun beach movies, too.
Those were the daze.

Those of us who grew up in the 50s remember her fondly. But she deserves our respect even more for the decent person she was throughout her life. I recall how Walt Disney (whom she always addressed as "Mister Disney") told her to not wear a revealing bathing suit in one of her teen movies, and she respectfully accepted his advice. And the courage she showed in during her later years when faced with a debilitation illness (MS) was an example and encouragement to other people with infirmaties. May she rest in peace with her Lord. I am certain that she will.

Annette was a dear lady. She was not only a wonderful role model when a Mouseketeer. She used her tremendous celebrity in her post-Mouseketeer days very judiciously. Not surprising as she began the beach movies, she kept her word to Mr. Disney and wore a one-piece swimsuit. She was first and foremost, a LADY. Sleep now, dear Annette, in the arms of The Lord. Your long struggle is over. You are free...

Condolences to the family & friends of this fine lady. The very thought of her brings a smile & happy memories of years gone by. She became even more resected during her courageous years after the MS diagnosis.

It is so very tragic that today´s youths do not have such role models of personal integrity prominent in films & the media anymore. ...Since the miserable Clinton years, America´s youths and children have had few positive role models in the pop culture.

This morning I read that today is Mouseketeer Darlene Gillespie´s 72nd birthday, and was reminded of my favorite Mouseketeer, Annette. We knew that Annette had been suffering from MS, but she´s been out of sight for some time, and we who are her old fans have been spared watching her declime.

The Mickey Mouse Club was, along with Johnny Weissmuller´s Tarzan, Roy Rogers-Dale Evans, and Chief Dan Mathews of Highway Patrol, my favorite entertainment in those years of my early childhood: the late 1950s. I even had a set of Mickey Mouse ears to wear during the program. Annette, especially, was so sweet and wholesome. Watching her was a good way to grow out of my infancy. God bless her.

Watching the MM Club was such fun. Not like the garbage on tv today. Spin and Marty were my favorite guys but Annette was the girl we all wanted to be or at least be best friends with. Pretty, smart and talented. Many years ago she started her own teddy bear line on QVC. Being a teddy bear collector and Annette fan I never missed a show if I could help it. At first she was on showing her teddies but as the illness progressed she bowed out and let another take over. I was not a beach movie fan but my husband has very fond memories of her. It seemed every weekend his folks gassed up the car, popped some corn, loaded up on drinks and M & M´s and headed to the drive-in to watch Annette and whoever she was hanging out with in that particular movie. Because the movie was all about Annette. The guys were secondary to the plot. RIP sweetheart. I am sure Mr. Disney was there to welcome you over. I assume she was not perfect (few of us are) but I don´t ever remember reading any bad press about her. Are you listening Kim, Lindsay, Paris and all the other dunderheads out there?

Annette is someone I´ve always admired. Before Disney ended the contest with baggy sweatshirts and "no more profile shots," hurrying home from school to see which Musketeer had blossomed more over night, Annette or Darlene, was an vital component of my and my colleagues´ introduction to puberty. Later she gave us an array of songs and movies that were teenage silly, but also great fun. But it was as an adult that Annette provided her most important lessons. Both as a young woman and, later, under the stress of a debilitating disease, she never displayed anything but maturity and grace. Thank you, Annette. Rest in peace.

I had the honor of meeting and talking with Annette in 1994. She was at our TV studios to record an interview. I mixed the audio for that. She was in a wheel chair then and her husband helped her on to the set for the interview. I talked with her about a concrt I saw her do with Frakie Avalon in 1991. I was visiting Pleasanton, CA where I saw that concert. She told me how much fun it was for her to do that show. RIP, dear lady.

It was love at first sight, and the first sight of love. Everyone loved her, and I secretly knew that I wanted to marry her. Amazing to be so enamoured at a young age. I am a little shocked that she was five years older than me. Somehow I missed that, but no matter, we would have lived happily ever after.

Sen.

In what’s become a recurring theme, the weekly addresses of President Obama and congressional Republicans offered a preview of the two sides’ political strategies heading into this fall’s midterm elections. Mr. Obama and his fellow Democrats are pushing an income-equality agenda that includes a hike in the nation’s minimum wage and more federal investment into manufacturing, infrastructure, education, and other areas. The GOP, on the other hand, continues to zero in on the president’s health-care reform law and its negative consequences, a tack the party is sure to continue heading toward the November contests.

Baghdad -More than 700 people died in violence in Iraq in February, not including nearly 300 reported deaths in western Anbar province, where security forces have been battling Sunni Muslim rebels since January, the United Nations said on Saturday. The world body said local authorities had recorded 298 civilian deaths in Anbar, but that it could not confirm the figures independently due to the chaos in the desert region. Outside Anbar, the bloodshed was worst in Baghdad, where 239 civilians were killed, followed by Salahuddin province to the north with 121 dead. A total of 1,381 people were wounded.

Senate Democrats will not write a budget for the next fiscal year. One year after writing and passing the first Senate Democratic budget resolution in four years, Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) said her conference will not make an effort in the 2014 midterm election year. In a statement, Murray said there was no reason to do a fiscal 2015 budget after the two-year deal struck in December with House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). That deal set budget ceilings for the 2014 and 2015 fiscal years. The 2015 fiscal year begins on Oct. 1. “Fiscal Year

Americans take justifiable pride in the freedoms given to them by nature or God and enshrined in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights. As we seem to be finding out day after day, however, those rights are no longer of any real value; they are, as James Madison suspected they would be, “parchment barriers” against the encroachment of government and a population conditioned to believe that rights originate with that government, not from a higher power. Founding philosophy believed that the legitimacy of government sprang from defending rights inherent to human beings; if the government were to violate those rights, it

Sure, he was joking, but we all know that in some way or another, there is truth to that statement. We didn´t get much more info besides Obama revealing that "researchers who invent some of the most advanced metals on the planet; designers who are modeling prototypes in the digital cloud; folks from the Pentagon who help to support their work" are involved with a "secret project we´ve been working on for a while." That´s enough info

A federal court has ruled that an American school student has a right to free expression -- unless that American might be threatened for that expression by others, in which case state officials have the right to quash the offending expression to appease potential aggressors. Which, ipso facto, means Americans have no right to free expression at all. For if it’s not the government’s role to protect expression that is thought to be offensive by a vicious mob, what purpose does the First Amendment have? “Safe” expression needs no protection, after all. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled upon the constitutionality of a decision

If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front runner in the next presidential race. But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns. These ubiquitous rumors of her health have been fueled in part by the supermarket tabloids. The National Enquirer wrote in 2012 that Clinton had brain cancer, something a spokesman dismissed then as “absolute

Apparently it´s not the price of the groceries, but the nutrition labels on food packages that make grocery shopping such a difficult and trying experience for the moms of America.In pitching new, improved nutrition labels at the White House on Thursday, first lady Michelle Obama tried to identify with women who do the grocery shopping for their families. Her message was aimed at mothers who want to buy healthy food and depend on labels to help them do that:"So there you stood, alone in some aisle in a store, the clock ticking away at the precious little time remaining to

The “greatest buried treasure ever unearthed in the United States” is about to be hit by the tax collector. According to Kathleen Pender, a columnist at the San Francisco Chronicle, the couple who found in cans buried on their property more than 1,400 rare gold coins worth more than $10 million will probably owe close to half of that sum in federal and state income tax, whether or not they sell the coins. She quoted a 2013 tax guide in which the IRS stated: “If you find and keep property that does not belong to you that has been lost or

Kerry Kennedy has been found not guilty of drugged driving — and gave herself a hearty round of applause after jurors were dismissed from court by a Westchester County judge. The jury handed down the verdict after just 30 minutes of deliberation Friday morning. The six-member panel had deliberated about 45 minutes Thursday night after being handed the case. Kennedy — who had faced up to a year in jail if convicted — hugged both her lawyers as the verdict was read, and then began clapping after the jurors left the courtroom. Her lawyers and a band of supporters, including

President Barack Obama is warning Russia "there will be costs" for any military maneuvers it launches in Ukraine, a move U.S. and Ukrainian officials say they believe to be already underway. Officials say Obama may retaliate by canceling a trip to Russia this summer for an international summit and could also cut off trade discussions with Moscow. But it´s unclear whether those moves will have any impact on Russia´s calculus in Ukraine, which is at the center of what many see as a tug of war between East and West. "Any violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing," Obama declared Friday

President Barack Obama fired a few verbs across the front armor of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s tanks, in a rushed statement just after 5 p.m. on Friday. The statement was made as Russian forces — including attack helicopters — appeared in peripheral parts of the Ukraine that are largely populated by ethnic Russians. There’s no evidence that Obama wants to get involved in what may become a war between the Ukraine and Russia. He did not threaten any significant retaliation if Russian force attack nor did he offer military aid to the Ukraine. He announced that Vice President Joe Biden — but not

The question isn’t why Arthur Chu brought his peculiar, buzzer-smacking brand of game play to “Jeopardy.” The question is why, in 50 long years of the show’s history, more people haven’t done the same. Chu, if you haven’t heard of him, is the “Jeopardy” contestant nonchalantly bulldozing America’s collective nostalgic vision for how game shows should work, who cruised to his eighth straight victory on Thursday night. The insurance compliance technician from Ohio who is also a “stand-up comedian, Shakespearean actor, improviser, tour guide, genius and, most importantly, voiceover artist,” according to his Web site — has used his renegade style

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama´s re-election. The administration´s tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify. The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it.

Former President Bill Clinton has signed on to promote a new Democratic voter project, claiming that the GOP is trying with voter identification laws to block divorced women, college students, blacks, the disabled and younger Americans from voting. “There is no greater assault on our core values than the rampant efforts to restrict the right to vote,” Clinton said in a YouTube video distributed as part of the Democratic Party´s new Voter Expansion Project unveiled Thursday.
