TIDBITS® VISITS SOME

“T” TOWNS by Kathy Wolfe

This week, Tidbits cracks open the geography books to study several points across the globe that begin with the letter “T”. ● Nestled on the shores of Puget Sound, with a stunning view of nearby Mount Rainier, sits Tacoma, Washington, nicknamed the “City of Destiny.” In 1792, Captain George Vancouver became the first European to see Mount Rainier, originally called Mount Tahoma, from the Native American word for “mother of waters.” Vancouver named the peak for his friend Rear Admiral Peter Rainier. In 1911, Frank Mars and his wife Ethel began making and selling a variety of butter-cream candies from their Tacoma kitchen, a venture that would eventually become the Mars Candy Company, maker of the Milky Way. Another sweet treat, almond roca, also had its beginnings in Tacoma. ● Florida’s state capital Tallahassee is the 128th largest city in the United States. Its name comes from an old Muskogean Indian word translated as “old fields.” The first European explorer to arrive there was Spaniard Hernando deSoto in 1539. Tallahassee became the capital in 1824, with a log cabin as the first Capitol Building. Out of Florida’s 497 verified species of birds, 372 of them can be seen in Tallahassee. turn the page for more!

“T” TOWNS (continued) ● When Taipei 101 opened in 2004, this 101-floor skyscraper grabbed the title of world’s tallest building and remained so until 2010. It’s located in Taipei City, the largest city in Taiwan and capital of the Republic of China. The city was founded in the early 1700s and developed into an important overseas trade center over the next 100 years. It’s home to several ornate temples, including the Longshan Temple, constructed in 1738. In 1945, the temple was badly damaged when it was hit by American bombers who believed the Japanese were hiding armaments inside. ● On the northwest shore of Lake Ontario lies Toronto, Canada’s largest city. The city takes its name from an Iroquois word meaning “place where trees stand in the water.” Toronto ranks high on the list of the world’s “most livable cities” based on quality of living. Its low crime rate also makes it one of the safest major cities in North America. The homicide rate there is about 3.3 per 100,000 people, compared with Atlanta, Georgia at 19.7. Covering an area of 243 sq. miles (630 sq. km), Toronto has about 2.6 million residents, 49% of whom were born outside Canada. It’s obvious the city’s residents enjoy ice sports, as there are 52 outdoor ice skating rinks in the city. ● Canada isn’t the only place where you’ll find Toronto. There are five U.S. states with a community by that name – Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Ohio, and South Dakota. ● Five U.S. states and a Canadian province have also honored the Native American leader of the Shawnee by naming a community Tecumseh. Born in Ohio, Tecumseh (“Shooting Star” or “Panther Across the Sky”) grew up to be a key figure in the War of 1812. He is quoted with these words of wisdom: “Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.”

Little Dog Gets Too Many Treats DEAR PAW'S CORNER: How many treats is it safe to feed to a small dog at once? My grandmother always feeds two big fake pepperoni sticks to her Shih-Tzu after each walk. She walks "Cody" three times per day. Cody is looking a little stout. -- Lila S., Dothan, Ala. DEAR LILA: Most pet-food products, including treats, have a suggested serving amount based on a dog's size. But in general, pet treats should make up no more than 10 percent of the pet's total daily calories. Six "pepperoni"-flavored sticks per day is an awful lot of treats for a small dog. Does Cody eat all of his regular pet food as well? How much food is he given at his mealtimes? It can be difficult to correct a situation like this when you're not the pet owner. However, you should give it a try. Ask your grandmother how Cody's last veterinary exam went,

and whether the vet mentioned his weight. Ask her if you can help monitor Cody's food intake, and try to convince her to reduce the amount of treats the dog receives after each walk. I'm willing to bet that if she feeds Cody just half a stick, breaking it into small pieces that she gives one at a time, the dog won't notice the reduced amount. Find out from your grandmother if the vet has recommended a lower-calorie diet for Cody. If so, look at ways to get that calorie count down, and convince her to reduce the amount of treats to just one or two small bites of Cody's favorite pepperoni stick after each walk. Your grandmother may resist, but it's important for Cody's health and is a way to ensure a longer relationship with her favorite dog.

“T” TOWNS (continued) ● Back in 1950, NBC radio was home to a popular radio quiz show known as Truth or Consequences. Looking for a creative way to celebrate the program’s tenth anniversary, the host Ralph Edwards announced that he would air the program from the first American town to rename itself after the show. Hot Springs, New Mexico jumped at the chance, and on March 31 of that year, the residents voted in favor of the switch, and the very next day, Ralph Edwards and the crew flew in for the anniversary broadcast. For the next 50 years, Edwards visited the town each May for their annual fiesta. Every April 1, Truth or Consequences, or “T or C” as the locals call it, celebrates Ralph Edwards Day. ● A small Japanese fishing village named Edo founded around the year 1200 has grown to the world’s most populous metropolitan area with 8,949,447 residents. Edo was renamed Tokyo in 1868, when it became the imperial capital. Tokyo’s entire urban area has a population of 35,623,327. The city had already reached 1,000,000 people back in the 1720s. It’s not only the most populous city in the world, it’s also the most expensive, with the highest cost of living worldwide. ● Texas is home to the towns of Telephone and Telegraph. Telephone, Texas was named because the only telephone in the area was in the community’s general store. About 210 people live there these days. Telegraph’s name was based on all the telegraph poles cut to build communication lines to the U.S. Army forts just east of town. Today, it’s pretty much a ghost town, population, 3.

● On Feb. 3, 1959, rock stars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson are killed when their chartered plane crashes in Iowa a few minutes after takeoff. Holly and his band, the Crickets, had just scored a No. 1 hit with "That'll Be the Day." ● On Feb. 4, 1789, George Washington, the commander of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, is unanimously elected the first president of the United States. John Adams of Massachusetts was elected vice president. ● On Feb. 5, 1934, Henry Louis Aaron Jr., the baseball slugger who broke Babe Ruth's legendary record of 714 homers, is born in Mobile, Ala. Aaron began his professional baseball career in 1952 in the Negro League and joined the Milwaukee Braves of the major leagues in 1954. ● On Feb. 6, 1820, the first organized immigration of freed slaves to Africa from the United States departs New York harbor on a journey to Freetown, Sierra Leone, in West Africa. The expedition was partially funded by the U.S. Congress, which had appropriated $100,000 for the trip. ● On Feb. 7, 1964, Pan Am Yankee Clipper flight 101 from London Heathrow lands at New York's Kennedy Airport -- and "Beatlemania" arrives. It was the first visit to the United States by the Beatles. The British rock-and-roll quartet had just scored its first No. 1 U.S. hit with "I Want to Hold Your Hand." ● On Feb. 8, 1985, Sir William Lyons, founder of the British luxury automaker Jaguar, dies at the age of 84 in Warwickshire, England. Initially named SS Cars Ltd., the company changed its name to Jaguar Cars Ltd to avoid any association with the Schutzstaffel, the Nazi paramilitary group also referred to by the initials "SS." ● On Feb. 9, 1992, after stunning the world three months earlier with the news he had contracted the HIV virus and was immediately retiring from the game, basketball great Magic Johnson returns to play in the 42nd NBA All-Star game in Orlando, Fla. The crowd greeted him with a standing ovation.

● It was noted Irish author and wit Oscar Wilde who made the following sage observation: "There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it." ● The very first CD of a musical recording was made in 1982. The album was "The Visitors" by Swedish pop superstars ABBA. ● Immigrants arriving at New York's Ellis Island in the early years (1892-1920s) were given bananas to eat. Many had never seen a banana and didn't know how to eat one -- some ate the whole thing, peel and all. ● In the small African nation of Swaziland, the Civil Aviation Authority has set a ceiling of 500 feet on light aircraft. These aircraft, as well as kites and remote controlled toys, are not allowed to go above that limit. Also included in the category of light aircraft are broomsticks. Any witch who flies on a broomstick above that limit is subject to a fine of more than $50,000 and possible arrest. ● If you're thinking about moving to another country, you might want to consider Finland. In that country, employees are offered, on average, 44 paid vacation days every year. Of course, you might want to consider that even in the warm southwestern part of the country, winters last about 100 days, with snow covering the ground from mid-October to early May.

● The name of the state of Iowa (unsurprisingly) comes from a Native American language. The original word, "ayuxba," means "sleepy ones." ● Early science-fiction author E.E. "Doc" Smith wasn't just a writer; he also was an engineer. He's the guy who figured out how to get powdered sugar to stick to doughnuts. Thought for the Day: "To be capable of embarrassment is the beginning of moral consciousness. Honor grows from qualms." -- John Leonard

Several displays are held every August, with the main display consisting of 120,000 shells fired in less than an hour. ● The Native Americans gave Ten Sleep, Wyoming its unusual name. This Indian rest stop was 10 days’ travel, or “10 sleeps” from Fort Laramie to the southeast and Montana’s Indian Agency to the northwest. Today this little community boasts 260 residents. ● Mahatma Gandhi called Thiruvananthapuram, India, that country’s “Evergreen City.” This ancient city has been a busy trade center since 1000 B.C. It is home to the temple of Vishnu, the richest temple in the world, with its monumental items and assets valued in the $15 billion range. ● Edgar Rice Burroughs was 35, nearly broke, and selling pencil sharpeners when he wrote the first Tarzan book. Beginning in 1912, Burroughs published 26 novels about our favorite jungle hero. His success allowed him to purchase a 550-acre ranch north of Los Angeles, which he appropriately named Tarzana. Within in a few years, the city had grown to surround the ranch, and Burroughs sold off part of his property for new homesites. This small community, incorporated in 1917, is still known as Tarzana, California, with a population of around 35,000.

It would be tough to find someone who hasn’t seen the face of Morley Safer on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Let’s trace his famous career back to his Canadian roots. ● Toronto, Ontario, was home to an Austrian Jewish family, Max Safer, an upholsterer, and his wife Anna. In 1931, their son Morley was born. After Morley finished high school, he enrolled in the University of Western Ontario in London. At age 20, he landed his first job in journalism as a reporter for Woodstock, Ontario’s SentinelReview, and he dropped out of college. After a few other newspaper jobs, he was hired by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a correspondent. ● Safer was an eminent war correspondent, beginning with the 1956 Egypt-Israel conflict. He joined CBS in 1964, and moved to Vietnam, where he opened the network’s news bureau in Saigon, where he would remain for two years. It was his report on a “search and destroy” mission to the village of Cam Ne that first alerted viewers to the traumatic conditions of the Vietnam War. President Lyndon Johnson reacted negatively to Safer’s report, calling the head of CBS to complain. Johnson ordered a security check done on Safer, certain that he was a communist. LBJ was informed that Safer “wasn’t a communist, just a Canadian.” ● Safer moved to London, England in 1967 as the city’s bureau chief, holding the post for three years, while still covering the world’s conflicts. In fact, in 1968, he proposed to his future wife over the phone while reporting from Nigeria, where he was reporting on that country’s civil war.

1. Is the book of 2 Timothy in the Old or New Testament or neither? 2. Koinonia is a Greek word found 20 times in the Bible, and primarily means ... ? Revenge, Forgiveness, Fellowship, Crucifixion 3.

Two, Three, Five, Seven 5. From Psalm 14:1 who/what says in his/its heart, "There is no God"? Pagan, Fool, Insane, Serpent 6. What is the youngest book in the New Testament? Acts, Philemon, Hebrews, Revelation


Page 7

For Advertising Call (740) 446-4543 MORLEY SAFER (continued) ● In 1970, Safer received the job offer that has taken him to this day. CBS’ newsmagazine 60 Minutes was in its third season when Safer accepted the position. He is now in his 44th season on the program. While covering the news on the program, Safer branched out into writing, and became the author of a best-selling book in 1990, Flashbacks: On Returning to Vietnam. Twenty-five years after he left Vietnam, Safer returned in 1989 to film a report for 60 Minutes and ended up writing of his recollections as a war correspondent, as well as his observations of Vietnam then and now. ● Safer’s 1983 investigative report on a wrongly-convicted armed robber sentenced to life in prison highlighted new evidence that led to Lenell Geter’s release from prison. Safer spent six months doing “the work the police didn’t do,” and contradicted their “proof” of Geter’s guilt. Within days of the broadcast, Geter was released. ● Safer has expressed his opinion on today’s reality TV programming: “What have reality shows got to do with reality? It is beyond unreality; there is nothing real about it. Reality TV is sleazy, it is manipulative. It is as momentary as anything in popular culture.” ● Safer is a 12-time Emmy Award winner, along with a Lifetime Achievement Emmy from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and three George Foster Peabody Awards. During Safer’s tenure at 60 Minutes, the broadcast has been in the Top Ten highestrated programs for 22 consecutive seasons. It’s the only program to finish first in three different decades. Nielsen ratings tell us that 16 million people tune into the program every Sunday night.

Online at www.lovemytidbits.com IT’S VAL- DAY Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, but this week Tidbits is switching the focus to other words that begin with Val-. ● According to ancient Norse mythology, Valhalla is a majestic hall where the souls of heroes slain in battle are received. The Valkyries are the maidens of the god Odin who choose which soldiers will die and then escort them to the afterlife. According to legend, the helmeted Valkyries descend from the heavens in bolts of lightning wearing waist-length armor carrying brightly-shining spears. In 1870, composer Richard Wagner wrote his well-known opera “The Valkyries,” containing the famous piece “Ride of the Valkyries,” in which the mythological creatures greet each other and sing their battle-cry. Fans of the animated Elmer Fudd might know that he frequently sings, “Kill the wabbit, kill the wabbit” to this tune as he stalks Bugs Bunny.

A: Vaseline glass is a transparent yellowish-green or greenish-yellow glass, so named because it is close to the color of Vaseline petroleum jelly. When first made, it was marked as canary glass. Early Vaseline glass gets its color from uranium oxide when added to lead glass. The result is a glass that will flash two colors in sunlight and fluoresce under ultraviolet light. Other yellowgreen glass will not. Your second question is easier to answer. Yes, it is collectible, and prices depend on the piece and where it is being sold. Q: My dad was a carpenter and had quite a tool collection. I am in the process of liquidating his estate. and it has now come down to his tool room. Can you advise me? -- Billy, Rio Rancho, NM A: Steve Johnson is an appraiser, collector and a dealer of vintage tools. Check out his excellent website at www.tooltimer.com. His contact is c/o Union Hills Antique Tools, 4521 243rd Ave. NE, Redmond, WA 98053; steve@finetools.com. When contacting anyone mentioned in this column, be patient. Most of the experts I reference receive dozens of inquiries each week, and not all can be answered immediately, or even in a timely fashion. Q: I have a walking stick with "Jimmy Carter/'76" on one side of the handle and "For President" on the reverse. My dad worked as a volunteer during Carter's two presidential campaigns, and I assume that is when he acquired it. Any value? -- Steve, Galveston, Texas A: Your stick is valued in the $25 to $35 range, according to "Warman's Political Collectibles" by Dr. Enoch L. Nappen, and published by Krause Books. Q: I have a rare piece of scrimshaw that has been in my family since the 1850s. I am not interested in selling it, but would like an expert opinion of how much it is worth. -- Paul, Norfolk, Va. A: I suggest you contact Newport Scrimhanders, 14 Bowen's Wharf, Newport, RI 02840.

Artist Hal Foster introduced Prince Valiant in the Days of King Arthur in 1937, and the story has continued for more than 3,900 strips. Prince Valiant is a Nordic prince from the Norwegian west coast who, in sixth-century England, journeyed to Camelot, where he became friends with Sir Gawain, Sir Tristram, and Merlin. King Arthur respected Valiant enough to dub him a Knight of the Round Table. The Prince owns a magical singing sword named Flamberge, crafted by the creator of Arthur’s powerful Excalibur. Valiant met his lady love Aleta, Queen of the Misty Isles on a Mediterranean island. He married her in a 1946 comic, and they had children in 1947, 1951, 1962, and 1982, and a grandchild in 1987. The tale was made into a movie by 20th-Century Fox in 1954, starring Robert Wagner as Valiant. ● Northeastern Italy is home to a wineproducing region that is the source for one of the most famous red wines in the world, Valpolicella. Only Chianti ranks higher in total Italian wine production. Three varietals of grapes give this dry table wine its light fragrant flavor and aroma, the Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, and Molinara. ● Many people who suffer from insomnia opt to use an herbal supplement taken from the root of the valerian plant. Since ancient times, this medicinal herb has been used as a remedy for sleep disorders. Even Hippocrates was aware of its sedative properties. Some followers of alternative medicine also swear by valerian’s abilities to treat nervous tension, excitability, stress, intestinal cramps, and as a muscle relaxant. ● There are two major varieties of oranges, navels and Valencias. So what’s the difference? Navels are available from November through May, while Valencias are in season from February through October. Navels are the ones with the button formation on the end and are seedless. Valencias are thin-skinned with seeds, and have a very high juice content. ● Most folks know that the valedictorian is the student with the highest rank in a graduating class. But how many know that a valetudinarian is a person with a weak or sickly constitution, who is always concerned about becoming a chronic invalid? Another val- word, valediction, refers to the act of bidding farewell.

What makes the news is how quickly the Department of Veterans is paring down (or not paring down) its pile of disability claims, and those past the 125-day mark. We've heard about the mandatory overtime for VA claims personnel, and VA chief Eric Shinseki's often-repeated desire to get those claims under control by 2015. All well and good. But there's one part of the process we don't hear much about: the backlog of appeals. Those numbers are growing at an astronomical rate, and it's believed they will double over the next four years. At this point, the number stands at more than a quarter-million appeals. Allsup, the group that provides compliance and appeal services to those on VA and Social Security disability, ran the numbers. Appeals claims have shot up 78 percent since 2008. The top three cities for backlog of appeals claims are St. Petersburg, Fla. (22,581), Houston (16,725) and Atlanta (14,334). Taking it by state, the top three are Texas (30,993), Florida (22,581) and California (17,134). Your best bet: Do your part, when you file a claim, make it complete the first time out. Don't make processors ask for anything that you haven't provided. Be sure to submit what they call a Fully Developed Claim, one that certifies you have no further evidence. Veteran Service Organizations have sent members out to be trained in working with the FDCs. Make use of their services to ensure that your claim is as solid as possible. Open your claim online at eBenefits.va.gov (the VSO can help if you don't have a computer). If you have an existing claim, and if they ask for more information, get it to them quickly. Do everything you can to see that the VA has no excuse to shove your claim off to the appeals pile, where you could have a very long wait.

Q: I'm thinking of switching from a traditional hot water heater to a tankless water heater. With three teenagers in the house, the current tank heater is just not adequate to keep hot water available. Will a tankless heater solve the problem? And which is better, an electric or gas heater? -- Sal in Southern California A: While I like the concept of tankless water heaters -they provide hot water on demand, rather than storing water in a tank and keeping it warm -- it's really important for homeowners to do their research before deciding to jump to this system.

Electric tankless heaters, for example, look like a good deal up front. They cost about a third to one-half as much as gas tankless heaters. However, installation can be expensive: most electric heaters require a dedicated 30-amp circuit, meaning an electrician will have to come in to properly wire the house. In older homes, the installation can be pretty painful on the wallet. Gas tankless heaters cost more up front, but installation may not be as expensive. A qualified installer will need to set up the gas connection, and your gas system may need some modification. With either type, you still will have to deal with the problem of adequate hot-water supply. Placing high demand on the heater -- such as running a shower, the dishwasher and the hot water tap in a sink at the same time -- will make it more difficult for the unit to heat water to the correct temperature, meaning everybody starts getting tepid water. Homeowners I've spoken with who have tankless heaters are generally pretty happy with them. But they have experienced a few issues, such as not knowing they need to

flush the heating system once per year (and more often in a hard-water environment). None complained about having inadequate hot water -- either they selected the right-size system for their house, or they adjusted their water use to the rate at which the water gets heated. Because of the expense involved, find out how much water your family uses and track how much hot water is used during each day. Talk with the tankless heater dealer about the right system based on your needs, compare average annual costs (in electricity or gas) of the system compared to a traditional tank heater, and make sure you know up front what installation will entail and how much it will cost. HOME TIP: Tankless heaters can suffer from mineral scale buildup in the heat exchanger. Talk to the manufacturer about installing a flush valve so that you can flush out buildup annually and extend the life of the unit. Send your questions to ask@thisisahammer.com.

Medicare Expands Hospital Ratings

Indoor & Outdoor Furniture

Since 2009, Medicare has been tracking the best and worst hospitals for knee-and-hip replacement surgeries. Both are generally considered to be elective surgeries. It has identified 95 hospitals where patients are likely to have problems afterward, and 97 hospitals where patients are likely to have a good recovery. While Medicare has been long tracked other markers -- such as death rates, heart attacks and patient ratings of hospitals -- this is the first time it's followed knee and hip surgeries. Of the 95 hospitals with problems, there were nine that also had high complication and readmission rates. On the flip side, of the 97 hospitals with good patient recovery, 25 ranked as being "better" in both complications and readmissions. This new information has been added to the Hospital Compare site at medicare.gov, a welcome addition for patients who need to choose a hospital. Hospital Compare recently added ratings for hospitals with two types of infections, so clearly the site is continuing to grow. These ratings are going to matter to hospitals as well -- if found to have less than stellar rankings, Medicare pays the hospitals less. Later in 2014, the hip-and-knee replacement surgeries also will be counted when it comes to possible penalties. If you're in line for hip- or knee-replacement surgery, you'll not only want to pick your hospital, you'll want pre-surgery advice. Most hospitals will refer you to a class on what to expect. Setting up your home environment, arranging for help, having a low bed ready, stocking up on food, moving things so you don't have to reach high or bend low -- all of these, and more, can make for a faster recovery. Online, a good place to start is the "Knee Surgery Success" on Spryliving.com.

Heart Failure Is Quite Treatable DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 71 years old and have been diagnosed with chronic heart failure. In October of last year, I had triple bypass surgery, but now I'm in good health. Some things I have read about chronic heart failure are unnerving. Will you give me your take on what lies ahead for me? -- S.T. ANSWER: Heart failure, chronic heart failure and congestive heart failure are the same condition. It's one of the most common reasons why older people are hospitalized. The basic problem is that the heart has become so weak that it circulates blood poorly. Such poor circulation permits fluid to ooze out of blood vessels and "congest" tissues in the feet, ankles and lower legs. The lungs fill with fluid, which brings on

heart failure's cardinal feature -- gasping for breath on even slight exertion. Other signs of heart failure are breathlessness when lying in bed, heart enlargement, seen on X-rays, and the doctor's discovery of lung sounds that indicate the lungs have fluid in them. Numerous conditions lead to heart failure. At the top of the list is coronary artery disease, the blockage of heart arteries that often brings on a heart attack. This must be why your heart failed. You did have surgery to correct blocked heart arteries, but they did their damage well before surgery took place. Heart valve problems, high blood pressure and atrial fibrillation are other causes of heart failure. Medicines usually can get the heart beating with greater vigor and can lessen or abolish most symptoms. Anything that affects heart function must be treated. High blood pressure, for example, has to be lowered. You might think that inactivity is best for your heart -- it isn't. Your doctor will outline a program that keeps you active to the level that your heart can tolerate. Walking is one example, but more strenuous exercise is encouraged when your heart becomes stronger. You should be on a low-salt diet. You ought not to be discouraged about your outlook.

The life span of people with congestive heart failure has increased by 15 percent in men and by 5 percent in women in just the past decade. The increment in women's life span is smaller because women live longer, on average, than men. Readers can order the booklet on congestive heart failure by writing: Dr. Donohue -- No. 103W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My EKG report, sent to me, says "left axis deviation." Is that a big deal? -- M.Y. ANSWER: It means that that electric signal originating in the upper heart chamber and responsible for each heartbeat takes a different route to reach the lower heart chambers, the pumping chambers. In the absence of symptoms, it's not a dangerous thing. You don't have to dwell on it. I take it you have a doctor who ordered the EKG. That doctor will follow up to see if you have any hidden heart trouble. The condition is not an emergency situation.

Shocking Death Reveals Loneliness Roy Geno’s body was found draped in a tree. It was below an embankment that dropped some 50 feet to railroad tracks near Nineteenth and Mason Streets in Omaha, Nebraska. A 9-year-old girl walking with her aunt along the tracks saw the body. Police investigated but nobody knew what really happened. Geno could have fallen from the edge and landed in the trees, he could have been pushed, or, in his despair, he could have done it himself. No one saw anything. No one knows. An autopsy was done but it revealed only that Geno had cirrhosis of the liver. His death, according to an article in the Omaha World Herald, had an added ignominy: Officials initially misspelled his name; they identified him as “Ray” Geno. There was little said about his passing except for the grim way his body was found. Had he died in his cheap hotel room where he lived downtown, his name would have been a mere entry in a routine corner’s report. Geno, 55, was an alcoholic with a long list of arrests for drinking. “We talked about training, about employment but it didn’t have much of an effect on him,” said Art Lian, a social worker for the Veterans Administration. “He wasn’t motivated. He was quiet and friendly, but just about hopeless.” Lian explained, “He kind of gave up. He had a lot of failures in his life and there wasn’t much of anything that gave him encouragement.” Lian had suggested a Veterans home but Geno declined. He wanted to live alone in his low-rent room at the Overland Hotel on Howard Street. His landlady said, “He was a real loveable guy.” She said he helped around

the hotel, sometimes ran errands, did odd jobs, drove a moving truck, worked as a cook, but nothing steady. He spent most of his time unemployed and inebriated. Geno lived on a $185-a-month veteran’s pension check as a veteran of World War II, the submarine service some people think, but they didn’t know. He didn’t talk much about his past. A sister-in-law in Texas reached by telephone told the Omaha World Herald that the family lost contact with him “many years ago.” According to her, he was one of five brothers whose mother died in childbirth. After the boys grew up on an Alabama farm, “they just scattered.” “We heard from him a few years back,” she said, “But not much. How did he die, do you know? Where did he die?” Geno left no possessions, not even a wallet as it had been stolen a month earlier but had only a few dollars in it. The body was laid to rest in the veterans section of Hillcrest Cemetery in Omaha. There was no service at the funeral home, and no committal ceremony at the graveyard. No one came to say farewell. Roy Geno died as he had lived most of his life, alone. Additional columns on this subject are available on www.RonRossToday.com. Do you have a tale of loneliness or other comments on this column?
