Terry’s Turn

Keyboarding just isn’t the same I’ve been looking at new computers lately. I wanted to upgrade to all the newest bells and whistles I keep hearing about. As part of my exhaustive search for a new computer, I found myself wandering the aisles of one of those giant electronic stores. I stopped in front of one display featuring a laptop that had more memory and functions than John Glenn’s Terry Turner Freedom Seven space capsule. As I looked at that amazing computer, I thought back to the early days of my writing career and how I put those magical words on paper. When I graduated from high school, my sister gave me a portable Royal manual typewriter. It was just a few years later that I put that typewriter to use to write my first magazine article. I first wrote the story by hand on a yellow legal pad then carefully typed it out with my Royal typewriter. I proudly mailed that article and was soon rewarded with my first rejection slip.

I was of course devastated with that rejection especially since I had worked so hard to put those 2,500 words on paper. Even though that Royal typewriter did a good job it did, in fact, have a few drawbacks. If I happened to hit two keys at the same time they would get stuck together. And if I didn’t notice the problem right away and kept typing, the keys would suddenly freeze. I’d look up and see a mass of typewriter keys all stuck together. I would then spend five minutes untangling that mechanical mess. Even a simple typing mistake could turn into a huge problem. It could very well be a major undertaking to fix it. Part of the problem was everything I wrote had to have a copy. Back then copies on a typewriter were made with carbon paper. A mistake not only had to corrected on the original, it needed to be corrected on the carbon copy. At first I made those corrections with an eraser. That worked but not real well, especially when I would rub too hard and go right through the paper. Start over. Later I found that little bottle of white paint to get rid of small mistakes. Large mistakes meant only one thing. Start over. Several years later I moved up to

an electric typewriter. It was like going from an old Chevy to a BMW. It didn’t matter if I hit the H with my forefinger or an A with my pinky, the keys hit the paper with the same strength. Amazing. It wasn’t long before I updated again and this time to an IBM Selectric. Now this was a typewriter. It had a ball you could exchange for another and change the font. It also had a correction ribbon that with the press of a key could correct a mistake. It couldn’t get any better than this. Or so I thought. Sometime in the early 1980s I moved into the computer age and bought a Tandy 2000 computer from Radio Shack. Not only could I correct mistakes on the screen before I printed a document, I could store them forever on a 5 1/4 inch floppy disk. Then in 1986 I began writing for the Sioux City Journal using that Tandy computer. I would type the story on the computer, print it out, then take the pages and my exposed roll of black and white film into the Journal offices where they would enter the story into their system, process the film and print photos. It seemed simple back then but now, not so much.

As I looked at those new computers lined up in the store waiting for me to buy one, I had an idea. Maybe I could just go back to that old yellow legal pad and Royal manual typewriter. I could get back to my real roots in writing. Today I enter stories into my computer then e-mail it to the editor. Since I use a digital camera I can e-mail my photos to the photo department at the Journal. I haven’t seen the inside of the Sioux City Journal offices in years. As I looked at those new computers lined up in the store waiting for me to buy one, I had an idea. Maybe I could just go back to that old yellow legal pad and Royal manual typewriter. I could get back to my real roots in writing. It would be exciting. It would be fun. It would be...stupid. Instead I called over a salesman, pointed to one of the computers and pulled out my credit card. Terry Turner is a Prime writer and can be reached at

And, although the website offers a broad selection of shapes, styles, sizes and colors of granite, new memorials are added as new installations are completed. Bob Luken Jr. recently said “We are

Trinity Heights offers quiet place to pray, reflect BY DOLLY A. BUTZ

It’s not unusual to see cars parked in the Trinity Heights parking lot well before sunrise, according to Mary Stevens. More than 100,000 people from all over the world flock to the inspirational destination that blends art, nature and the teachings of Christianity each year out of sheer curiosity or the need to find a quiet place to pray and reflect. “We hear people say, ‘It’s just so peaceful here. I just get out of Mary Stevens the car and I feel such peace,’” said Stevens, who manages St. Joseph Center, which houses Trinity Heights’ museum. Providing people with a place to experience the peace that Jesus Christ gives, Stevens said, was the Rev. Harold Cooper’s dream. In the mid-1980s, Cooper, then pastor of St. Joseph Church in Sioux City, and the non-profit corporation, Queen of Peace, Inc., set out to purchased the 80-acre property perched atop a hill at 33rd Street and Outer Drive on Sioux City’s north side. Almost 20 years later, pine trees, a pond, a stream and two dozen shrines dot the landscape, along with a chapel, gift shop and apartment housing for seniors. Visitors can sit on benches and admire the 30-foot steel statues of Jesus and his mother, Mary, light a candle in the Divine Mercy Adoration Chapel, or view a handcarved wood sculpture of the Last Supper. Pillars or bollards accompany shrines depicting the six places where Mary appeared in the world. The 10 Commandments and 8 beatitudes delivered by Christ in the 10 | Prime |

The Circle of Life Memorial to the Unborn at Trinity Heights. Sermon on the Mount are also present on the grounds. Although Trinity Heights is Catholic in theology, Stevens said it is ecumenical in intent and appeal. “We’re like an open Catechism,” she said. “The basics of Christianity are here.”


In 1912 the Franciscan Fathers purchased 53 acres of land on the city’s north side. They built three buildings that housed Trinity High School and College.

By the mid 1950s, the educational institution was abandoned and sold to a real estate developer. After seeing a 30-foot tall statue of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Queen of Peace in Santa Clara, Calif., it became Cooper’s dream to bring one to Sioux City. A group of lay persons formed the non-profit corporation, Queen of Peace, Inc., in an effort to buy the Trinity High School and College property and make Cooper’s dream a reality.

At $325,000, the land was too costly. The group prayed the Rosary daily on the abandoned property for six years. Then the price of the land dropped under $100,000, and Queen of Peace, Inc. purchased it about 1987 and begin developing Trinity Heights. Stevens said the men who attended Trinity High School and College played a big part in establishing Trinity Heights and continue to support it with monetary donations and by volunteering their time at St.

Cover Story This is really an attraction for people from all over the world because it’s so unique. MARY STEVENS

Manager, St. Joseph’s Center Joseph Center and Museum.


The Marian Center Gift Shop and Resource Center opened in 1990, the same year nationally renowned sculptor Dale Lamphere, of Spearfish, S.D., was commission to create the Immaculate Heart of Mary Queen of Peace. The 30-foot tall stainless steel statue was dedicated in 1993. Almost immediately, Stevens said buses began regularly driving up the dirt road so tourists could get a glimpse of the statue. Over the next three years, Trinity Gardens and the Circle of Life Memorial to the Unborn were built on the grounds, along with St. Joseph Center and Museum. The center’s octagon room houses Jerry Traufler’s “Last Supper” - a life-size rendition of the Last Supper. Traufler, a postal employee from Le Mars and self-taught sculptor, carved each figure out of basswood and pine with a chisel and mallet. “This is really an attraction for people from all over the world because it’s so unique,” Stevens said. The Sacred Heart of Jesus statue, a 33-foot stainless steel work by Lamphere, was added in 1999. It anchors one end of the property. On the other: the Immaculate Heart of Mary Queen of Peace, whose right hand points to Jesus. Her left hand welcomes visitors. Various shrines were added in the following years, including the Way of the Saints - six clusters honoring 60 saints. A statue of Moses overlooks the Way of the Saints from a hill. Among the latest additions to Trinity Heights are St. Anthony’s Senior Housing, a neighborhood of 12 homes; statues of Cooper, St. Paul and St. Peter; and the Veteran’s Memorial, which was dedicated this year. Stevens said the rock engraved with the words “God Bless America” was placed on a patch of grass leading to the Sacred Heart of Jesus after 9/11. Bricks on the main walkway were added around it to honor veterans. Family members can purchase a brick engraved with the name of their veteran and their photo for $250. Memorial plaques affixed to bollards, rocks and benches throughout the park can also be purchased to honor loved ones and help support Trinity Heights. Although she said there are no immediate plans for future expansion at Trinity Heights, Stevens doesn’t rule it out. “Obviously God wants us to be here because we have been very blessed,” she said.

HARFORD, Pa. — For more than a decade, Bronson Pinchot has spent much of his downtime in the picture-book Pennsylvania hamlet where he found a dream home far from the stressful clamor of New York or L.A. Pinchot likely remains best known as the endearingly naïve, quasi-Mediterranean immigrant Balki Bartokomous from the TV sitcom “Perfect Strangers.” But unlike Balki, Pinchot is by his own admission “fiercely private” and an “introvert that does a pretty convincing performance as an extrovert.” Still, he has decided to open his doors to America via “The Bronson Pinchot Project,” which premiered Feb. 11 on the

“Beverly Hills Cop,” but since “Perfect Strangers” ended in 1993 after eight seasons, Pinchot has performed on and offBroadway, appeared in touring theatrical productions and done voiceovers and audiobooks. His new show, though, is altogether different. First, the

designs are his own. “I get a kick out of it because I sit there with a sketchbook and say, ‘This is what it should look like when it’s done’ and in the end it either looks like that or it’s better,” he said. “My theater training helps; in theater, it doesn’t matter where you’re at with your performance, opening night is opening night.” Home base is Pinchot’s circa 1840 mansion in the center of Harford, a town of about 1,300 people. It was the home of state Sen. Edward Jones in the early 1900s and had more recently served as office space. Pinchot bought the place in 2000. “I wanted a Greek Revival house within five driving hours of New York City,” Pinchot said. When he first walked in, he said, he knew he would buy it. When he arrived, the

Entertainment scene couldn’t have been better staged by a Hollywood set designer: The house smelled of cinnamon toast, the air outside smelled of fresh manure, a woman pushing a baby carriage paused to admire a neighbor’s fuchsia roses across the street. “I was already sold, but that was like God was hitting me over the head with a sledgehammer,” he said. “OK, I get it, I get it!” He now owns six historic properties in Harford, including what was a burned-out vacant home also from around 1840 and a sweet blueshingled building that houses the town’s post office. Eventually, he hopes many of the properties will be places for visiting friends to stay. The first season’s architectural stars are his Ionic-columned mansion and Decker House, a smaller home rehabbed with salvaged wood from demolished old buildings, windows from an abandoned farmhouse and floors from a property formerly part of late heiress Doris Duke’s estate. Not only is “The Bronson Pinchot Project” a show about historic restoration, it’s a love letter to his adopted hometown. “Harford is to be seen through my lens, which is that that it’s heaven on earth,” he said. “None of this ‘big fish in a little pond.’ No. We’re not doing ‘Green Acres.’” Pinchot, 52, an antiques collector and enthusiast of classical art and architecture since childhood, is a hands-on renovator who

employs local carpenters and craftspeople; many are slated to appear in the show. Years of trial and error have culminated into the current style viewers will see taking shape — a blend of English regency and American high country along with 19th-century plaster casts of ancient Greek sculpture and architectural flourishes. The goal is for rooms to look like they’ve taken shape over many decades, he said. His earliest home rehab forays involved getting all the period details and furniture just right. But it felt wrong. “I looked around and thought, ‘Well now all it’s missing is a docent and a leaflet that says where the cafe is,” he said. “I made a little museum and that’s not what I want.” Things you won’t see in Bronson world: kitchen appliances. Refrigerators — which Pinchot calls “unacceptably, unforgivably ugly” — ovens, dishwashers and microwaves are cleverly concealed behind salvaged wainscoting, cupboards and cabinets mounted clandestinely on hinges, like a bookcase hiding a castle’s secret passageway. All of his properties eventually will get the full “Bronsonian” treatment, a process shaped both by the availability of salvage materials and Pinchot’s own improvisational approach to renovating. “I hope we can do this for 10 seasons!” he said. “We could do an episode on every room.” February 2012 | 13


Birthday gift prompts collector’s passion, museum BY TERRY TURNER

HICKORY CORNERS, Mich. – If you’ve ever dreamed of finding an old car in a barn, look no further than the Gilmore Car Museum near Kalamazoo, Mich. The rolling countryside of Hickory Corners has eight historic barns filled with vintage cars of all makes and models. Terry Turner The Gilmore Car Museum began in 1963 when Genevieve Gilmore innocently gave her husband Donald an antique car for his birthday. It was a 1923 Peirce-Arrow “project car� which meant it needed a lot of work. Gilmore and a few friends put the car under a tent and began a complete restoration. It wasn’t long before Gilmore’s hobby

turned into a passion and his collection grew to more than 30 classic cars. Gilmore then purchased 90 acres of farm land and had several historic barns dismantled and moved to the property to house his growing collection. Genevieve suggested he open a museum so future generations could enjoy his collection. The Gilmores formed a non-profit organization and opened the Gilmore Car Museum to the public Sunday July 31, 1966. Donald Gilmore died in 1979 and Genevieve died in 1990 but the legacy they left in preserving antique automobiles still continues. Today along with the eight historic barns is a recreated 1930s service station and a small town train depot. Also among the artifacts is a collection of almost 75 antique pedal cars and one of North America’s largest collection of hood ornaments. Visitors can see unique cars like the 1899 Locomobile or more famil-

iar cars like the classics from the 1950s. The collection is divided into groups such as Pierce Arrow, Duesenberg or the favorite classics from Ford, General Motors and Chrysler. One building at the Gilmore Car Museum doesn’t have car but is instead devoted to the history of the motorcycle and contains a wide assortment of bikes including the well-known brands like Harley Davidson, Honda and Yamaha plus

some lesser-known varieties like Ariel. The Classic Car Club of America Museum is located at the Gilmore Car Museum in an historic barn built in the 1890s. The CCCA Museum displays “Full Classic� automobiles and more than 700 mascots as part of the Marvin Tamaroff Mascot Collection. Also on the grounds of the Gilmore Car Museum is an authen-
