Candy, thank you for your interest and concern for Nancy's surgery which was
supposed to take place today at noon at Methodist North Hospital on Covington Pike.
We arrived at the hospital at 9:30 AM as scheduled and Nancy was preparing for the
event when we learned that over 6 procedures scheduled were cancelled because of a
"utility emergency" which is raw sewage in the operating room area. Meth North personnel
tried to move procedures to Meth Germantown before cancelling. We have been waiting to
hear from her doctor or his assistant ever since about rescheduling but so far no word.
We'll keep you posted.
Dan

News Channel 3's Norm Brewer Remembered
norm.jpg - 8331 Bytes The News Channel 3 team has some sad news to report today.
Long-time commentator and political analyst Norm Brewer has passed
away after a long battle with cancer.
Through his health problems, Norm continued to deliver his daily
news commentaries as he had since 1995. He said that coming into the
newsroom helped keep him going.
He also served as a political analyst, with the Commercial Appeals
Otis Sanford on election night and during debates.
We all remember his commentary as he sat holding a rolled sheet of paper,
discussing just about any issue whether it was the Memphis City School
system or words uttered by former Memphis mayor Herenton.
WREG-TV President and General Manager Ron Walter issued the following statement:
"We at WREG News Channel 3 are deeply saddened by the news of Norm Brewer's
passing. Norm was at the forefront of serious discussions about important
community matters and politics. He invariably offered provocative,
knowledgeable and thoughtful perspectives. No matter how powerful an official
or redoubtable an institution, Norm never shied away from taking decisive
positions he felt were proper and in the best interest of Memphis, the state
and nation. He was what good journalism is all about. He will truly be
missed by not only us at WREG News Channel 3, but also the many viewers who
looked forward to his crisp and informative daily commentaries."

I visited the Tech1952 Website and saw your notice that George Harmon
had died. A tribute to George Harmon may be found by Millsaps College.
I think his Tech High classmates might be interested in that tribute.
George was my wrestling coach when I was at Tech.
Go to millsaps.edu and type George Harmon in the faculty search at the top
of the screen. I tried to include the tribute in this email but was unsuccessful.
As you can see, he was well regarded by his faculty and friends at Millsaps College.
Thanks,

This is disturbing to say the least.
when you first open the U-tube video it will start with a non-related commercial (about 30 sec or so)
just wait and view an amazing revelation about copiers! ! ! !

Before you think "yeah, well, I never use a copier, not even at the office supply/shipping
store", think of all those who have your papers that do. Accountants, attorneys, health
professionals...the list goes on.
Watch it to the end for the scariest bit. Identity theft, anyone?
