As a baseball fan, I knew of Kiner's feats. He lead the league in HRs seven years in a row. I thinkRead More I heard a few broadcasts of his when I was in my early teens... I think it was him that was doing the NLCS when it was the Dodgers and Phillies (I recorded it on tape... I bet that thing doesn't work anymore). ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Still, as nice as it is to see this story... it's been on the front page of the Patch for two days now and it isn't even a local story. Safe to say that whatever reach Patch had as a local news source has seen better days... and that's no slight at Renee Schiavone. I imagine she's just playing the cards that were dealt to her.
Jeff Kleiner February 7, 2014 at 10:51 am
Ralph Kiner was also a great broadcaster. I enjoyed his voice many times. Any athlete leading theRead More league in Home runs for seven years is very impressive and dominate......Ralph will be missed all over baseball.

to all of you saying blame the parents need to shut the hell up. i know them personally andRead More honestly, this could've happened to any of those kids. those parents are going through a horrible time in their lives. today was the memorial/burial. his mother was crying over his body begging him to wake up and i couldn't even look at him without crying. he was all bruised up and his face was yellowish. and at the burial, it was just as depressing. so everyone saying it was the parents fault needs to shut their mouths because you don't even know the half of it.
Mary R September 20, 2013 at 12:21 am
I attended the memorial Thursday afternoon and was very touched by the outpouring of support. ThereRead More were many different religions there. The service was held in a neighborhood church that the family don't even attend but opened it's doors so the community could grieve. Those who want to blame the parents, think what you will but you can never say anything worse than what they are saying to themselves. Pray for them, for their peace.

"Donations can be made to the Diyarbek Uzakbaev Memorial Fun at any Wells Fargo BankRead More branch" the D.U. Memorial Fun? hmmm...the aticle doesn't make anything sound fun; not drinking, not driving, not even buying ice cream... my prayers to the family. that said, parents: do the right thing and never leave your child unsupervised, especially if you live on or near a well traveled street.

WHAT? Seriously? RAWR the punk, and this is our system that lets him out to the comforts of home.Read More Just like they do every single drunk driver who kills. Doesnt matter if they are movie start or this sorry excuse for a human being, they all get out and this family will be lucky to see him get 2 to 4 years in jail. THAT is if he is physically able to be in jail right? Those few broken bones he had, lordy, those would definately cause him a problem being in jail for the 2 people he killed!! Whos body parts landed in a 5 yr old, 17 yr old children, and the grandmothers husbands lap! Yes God forbid we should hurt Noel by putting him in jail, arraigning him, charging him, setting bail?

I only met Johan recently while watching the promo video at his flight instruction school. I haveRead More loved helicopters all my life and began a conversation with him about choppers. He was so generous with his time considering we had never met before. In no time at all I realised this was no ordinary individual. He was so exuberant. I quickly learned of his many accomplishments in his native country as well as his world records with helicopters. He then went on to speak with expertise on health and his water purifier business not only telling me about it but sending me home with "4" gallons to try out! This man didn't know me from Adam and yet he was so excited to share in his excitement of this latest discovery and all the health benefits that came along with it. I had a strong sense that this was a brother in the Lord and I asked about his faith to which he unabashedly told me of his faith in Christ and how important it was to him in his daily life. We shared over an hour together standing right where that memorial is now and I felt as if we'd been friends for years! This was a VERY special man indeed! Dear Monica, I did not know you, but this evening I happened by to have dinner at the cafe and saw the memorials and I was so stunned and moved at the loss of this special man. When everyone had left I spoke with you briefly because I know the Lord had me there to encourage you that Johan is with Him in heaven. I know also that many of us will be praying for you. So sorry.
