´No secret´ to making it to 103, decorated
World War II vet says

The Buffalo News, by Barbara O´Brien

Original Article

Posted By:ramona, 9/3/2017 12:37:08 PM

News flash: There is no secret to living a long life. That´s what Sydney L. Cole tells anyone who asks him how he got to be 103 years old. (snip) Several dozen of Cole´s friends gathered Friday afternoon to celebrate his birthday at Veterans Affairs Medical Center, where he lives in the community living care unit. Members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart wore purple shirts, and they presented him with a cake that honored the Purple Hearts he earned when he was shot down behind enemy lines in Belgium during the Battle of the Bulge.

Amazing gentleman.

You know this year is a milestone regarding America´s wars.

We are as far away in time this year from the beginning of WWII as the folks who fought at Pearl Harbor were from the folks who gathered to end the American Civil war at Appomattox.

That is a very sobering thought to me.

But, more personally, I am as far from my war in Vietnam now, as veterans of the Spanish-American war were from theirs at the end of WWII!

We can also celebrate 100 years this year from the U.S. marching into France in 1917 to end the war "to end all Wars".

#2 (sigh), I guess I´m already in deep yogurt according to this hero´s assessment.

In case anyone misconstrues, I reread my statement before posting ... "hero" is NOT sarcasm ... it is a true statement of admiration.

Sydney said "If I tell you my secret, I won´t have a secret" Wonder if he knew my brother who tricked me with this as a child.

Happy Birthday Sydney.

Veteran Sings ´Remember Pearl Harbor´

Before President Trump signed a formal proclamation on the 76th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, one veteran of the Japanese attack broke out in song. Trump said that, following the attack, a "battle cry could be heard by American friends and foes alike: Remember Pearl Harbor." The veteran standing closest to him smiled and began singing the lyrics to the Sammy Kaye song. "Let´s remember Pearl Harbor as we go to meet the foe. Let´s remember Pearl Harbor, as we did the Alamo," he sang. "We will always remember how they died for liberty. Let´s remember Pearl Harbor...

The new USS Little Rock and its 70 sailors chugged this morning into Buffalo, where the Navy will commission the $440 million ship.(snip) This will be the first time in the Navy´s 242-year history that a new ship is commissioned alongside her namesake. The new 389-foot-long Little Rock, a littoral combat ship that can hit speeds of about 45 knots and sail in shallow waters, is to be commissioned Dec. 16. It is much smaller than the old Little Rock. That 610-foot-long missile cruiser, which carried a crew of more than 1,000 sailors, has been on exhibit (snip) since 1977.

The New Hampshire attorney general´s office opened a criminal investigation last month after learning about allegations against psychology professors Todd Heatherton, Paul Whalen and Bill Kelley, all of whom have been put on paid leave and have had their access to campus restricted.

Tom the turkey likes to play chicken with traffic. The plucky bird is a common sight at the intersection of Klein and Paradise roads in East Amherst, where he often blocks lanes, pecks at tires and circles cars. While a neighborhood fixture and quirky oddity, his bold behavior has also garnered Tom a reputation as a nuisance. "He´ll just walk up right in front of the cars," said Steve Levy, a resident of the nearby Roxbury Park neighborhood. "He´ll start going right by the tires and quite frankly it´s really kind of dangerous. I´m surprised nobody´s had an accident .

The Latest on the Sen. Bob Menendez bribery trial (all times local): 1:05 p.m. Sen. Bob Menendez´s bribery trial has ended in a mistrial after the jury said it was hopelessly deadlocked on the charges against the Democrat and his co-defendant. Judge William Walls declared the mistrial Thursday. The jury first told him on Monday they couldn´t reach a unanimous verdict on any of the 18 counts in the indictment against Menendez and a wealthy friend. They said Thursday they reviewed the evidence "slowly and thoroughly and in great detail" but remained deadlocked.

Kressa Jean Shepherd, a Ukiah High School junior who dreamed of becoming an artist, died here two days before Halloween. On Oct. 9, she and her family were fleeing the Redwood Valley firestorm when they were trapped by the blaze on the mountain near their home. The fire killed 14-year-old Kai Shepherd and inflicted grievous injury on his parents and 17-year-old sister, Kressa. Kressa had spent what can only be described as three harrowing, mostly unconscious weeks in the burn unit of Shriners Hospitals for Children, before her brain swelled and then stopped.

It all began in Buffalo. The brashness, the swagger, the overwhelming drive to make something of himself. Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood film mogul now cast as a sexual predator, traces the roots of his show business dominance to his arrival at the University of Buffalo campus in the fall of 1969. It didn’t take long for the kid from Flushing, Queens, to make his mark. (snip) He also left his mark on Buffalo’s people. Eugene M. Fahey (now a state Court of Appeals judge) and Dennis E. Ward (now a state Supreme Court justice) became lifelong friends.

Jones’ competitiveness is a remarkable development in a deep red state that reflects just how badly Moore has been hurt by a sex scandal. But the race is still fluid. With 87 percent of precincts reporting, Jones and Moore both had 49.2 percent, according to

On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski argued President Trump’s tweet about Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) constitutes sexual harassment and that people who work around the president and don’t try to get him to delete the tweet don’t care about the country or women. Brzezinski said, “I just want to say something, beyond the fact that it is reprehensible that the president of the United States would say something so derogatory and disgusting about a woman, we’re not surprised, Mr. President. You do it all the time. You treat women terribly, and you treat the women around

Franken announced last Thursday that he would be resigning “in the coming weeks” after eight different women accused him of groping or forcibly kissing them. “The timing of Franken’s resignation remains unclear, as is his motive in delaying it,” New York Magazine’s Ed Kilgore noted at the time. Franken has yet to offer any more specificity about when he’s going to follow through in resigning. Franken’s office did not return multiple requests for comment on the subject. Franken begrudgingly offered his resignation after 35 Democratic senators called on him to do so, three weeks after he was first accused

President Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in a sexually suggestive tweet Tuesday morning that implied Gillibrand would do just about anything for money, prompting a swift and immediate backlash. “Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Charles E. Schumer and someone who would come to my office ´begging´ for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump,” the president wrote. “Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”

On Monday, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour President Donald Trump should resign over the sexual misconduct allegations against him. Gillibrand said, “President Trump should resign. These allegations are credible, they are numerous. I’ve heard these women’s testimony, and many of them are heartbreaking. And President Trump should resign his position.” She added, “Whether he will ever hold himself accountable is something you really can’t hold your breath for. And so, Congress should have hearings. They should do their investigation. They should have appropriate investigations of his behavior and hold him accountable.”

Margaret Thatcher was born one. So were predecessor Prime Ministers Benjamin Disraeli and William E. Gladstone. Diana, the princess of Wales, too. Also William Pitt, who presided over the British victory in the French and Indian War and lent his name to Pittsburgh. And, according to some university authorities four decades ago, me as well. We were all born commoners. But — despite what newspapers, websites and television stations on both sides of the Atlantic have reported with wonder and wild-eyed delight — Meghan Markle, the actor who is to marry Prince Harry, is not a commoner.

A supposed "rising star" at the State Department has resigned in anger over President Trump´s and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson´s policies. Elizabeth Shackelford gave her resignation letter to the left-leaning Foreign Policy magazine, which was, of course, all too happy to publish it. Shackelford´s letter says she believes the new administration has abandoned human rights as a priority, and shows disdain for the State Department´s diplomatic work.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) faced criticism for saying that President Donald Trump “slut-shamed” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) with a non-sexual insult, Tuesday. After President Donald Trump made a post on Twitter claiming that Sen. Gillibrand “would do anything” for campaign contributions, Sen. Warren made her own post accusing Trump of “slut-shaming.” “Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand?” asked Sen. Warren in her post. “Do you know who you’re picking a fight with? Good luck with that, @realDonaldTrump. Nevertheless, #shepersisted.” Are you really trying to bully, intimidate and slut-shame @SenGillibrand? Do you know who you´re picking a fight with? Good

President Donald Trump said Monday a bomb blast in Manhattan highlights the need for an immigration overhaul - as the man arrested was revealed to be part of a large Bangladeshi family sponsored by his aunt or uncle. Trump said that the U.S. ´must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people´ into the country. The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place. And he called on Congress to end ´chain migration,´ in which family members are permitted to join relatives

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to
