NEW YORK, Dan Fogelberg, the singer and songwriter whose hits “Leader of the Band” and “Same Old Lang Syne” helped define the soft-rock era, died Sunday at his home in Maine after battling prostate cancer. He was 56.

2117344782_3273331240_m.jpg

Singer Dan Fogelberg discovered he had advanced prostate cancer in 2004.

His death was announced Sunday on the singer’s Web site.

“Dan left us this morning at 6 a.m. He fought a brave battle with cancer and died peacefully at home in Maine with his wife, Jean, at his side,” it read. “His strength, dignity and grace in the face of the daunting challenges of this disease were an inspiration to all who knew him.”

Fogelberg discovered he had advanced prostate cancer in 2004. In a statement then, he thanked fans for their support: “It is truly overwhelming and humbling to realize how many lives my music has touched so deeply all these years. … I thank you from the very depths of my heart.”

Fogelberg’s music was powerful in its simplicity. He didn’t rely on the volume of his voice to convey his emotions; instead, they came through in the soft, tender delivery and his poignant lyrics. Songs like “Same Old Lang Syne” in which a man reminisces after meeting an old girlfriend by chance during the holidays, became classics not only because of his performance, but also for the engaging storyline.

Fogelberg’s heyday was in the 1970s and early ’80s, when he scored several platinum and multiplatinum records fueled by such hits as “The Power of Gold” and “Leader of the Band,” a touching tribute he wrote to his father, a bandleader. Fogelberg put out his first album in 1972.

Fogelberg’s songs tended to have a weighty tone, reflecting on emotional issues in a serious way. But in an interview with the Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Journal Sentinel in 1997, he said it did not represent his personality.

“That came from my singles in the early ’80s,” he reflects. “I think it probably really started on the radio. I’m not a dour person in the least. I’m actually kind of a happy person. Music doesn’t really reflect the whole person.

“One of my dearest friends is Jimmy Buffett. From his music, people have this perception that he’s up all the time, and, of course, he’s not. Jimmy has a serious side, too.”

Later in his career, he would write material that focused on the state of the environment, an issue close to his heart. Fogelberg’s last album was 2003’s “Full Circle,” his first album of original material in a decade. A year later he would receive his cancer diagnosis, forcing him to forgo a planned fall tour.

Cupboards Are Bare at Food Banks
Drops in Donations and Farm Surplus Cause Area Charities to Run Short

284564036_8a8fb929be_m.jpg

Area food banks are experiencing a critical shortage of supplies as donations drop dramatically and as demand for free and discounted food continues to soar.

The Capital Area Food Bank, the region’s primary distribution center, reported that it had about 230,000 pounds of goods on its shelves this week, down from 570,000 pounds at this time last year, officials said.

Volunteer Robert H. Coats restocks shelves at the Capital Area Food Bank, where the current inventory is dramatically below last year’s level.

The short supplies, which are hitting food banks and soup kitchens across the nation, stem from a combination of factors: Federal supplies of excess farm goods have dropped, in part because of the summer drought and because farmers are selling more of their products internationally. Donations from grocery stores, a major source for food banks, have fallen as supermarket chains consolidate, increase efficiency and tighten inventory controls.

Overall this year, the Capital Area Food Bank is projecting totals to fall roughly 6 percent below last year’s total of 19.5 million pounds. The situation has been particularly bad in recent weeks, officials said. At the Northeast Washington warehouse earlier this week, some refrigerated shelves, usually stacked with produce and meats, stood empty.

“We’re getting a lot less food donated from companies and individuals,” operations director Christopher Leal said. “We have really nothing.”

At the same time, economic factors have conspired to force many more people toward the brink of hunger. Calls to the food bank’s Hunger Lifeline are up about 37 percent from last year.

And it’s not just in the District. The Manna Food Center in Montgomery County served more than 2,200 families last month, about 200 more than the previous November. In Fairfax County, Reston Interfaith’s food service has doubled over the past three years.

“Good, working people are having a harder time making ends meet,” said Kerrie Wilson, executive director of Reston Interfaith. “So far, we’ve not had to turn folks away, but we have limited the number of times we’ll help someone. You do less for more.”

America’s Second Harvest, the country’s leading hunger relief charity, is projecting a shortage of 15 million pounds of food this year at its more than 200 network food banks. That would be enough food to serve 11.7 million meals or fill 400 trucks.

At food banks from Maine to Florida to California, “demand is up, and food is flying out the door faster than ever,” spokesman Ross Fraser said.

“Our inventories are as depleted as they’ve ever been before,” Fraser said. “Our food banks keep calling here saying, ‘My God, you’ve got to help us. We desperately need help.’ ”

Edward Cooney, who has been an anti~hunger activist since 1972, said he has never seen food supplies dwindling and demand rising the way they are now.

Hello Baby Boomers…millions of people in the U.S.A. go to bed hungry every night and probably a million of those are children.
Millions of dollars are being spent over seas when we have people hungry here.

Please take food to your local food banks. Pull those cans that have been sitting in your cabinets for months…go to Save-a-lot or an other penny pinching grocery store and buy more for your money and take it to our food banks.

409331981_6a7daadfbd_m.jpg
Put that can of asparagus back and get four cans of generic vegetables instead, for the food banks.

As an animal activist…don’t forget to go to your local animal shelters and take them dry and canned food as well. They are in need as well.

I promise you will feel good tonight, when you sit down at your dinner, knowing you have helped someone in need. WE all are truly blessed.

Tips Pour In From Around Country In Baby Grace Case

FROM HOUSTON, Texas, hundreds of tips from around the country have poured in after authorities asked for help in identifying the remains of a young girl discovered inside a storage box that washed ashore on Galveston Bay.

Sketches of the child, who police call “Baby Grace,” were released Friday.

If you want to see these pictures…here is a posting of them…
http://thebabyboomerqueen.wordpress.com/2007/11/06/baby-grace-tips-come-inbut-still-no-id/

“We’re sorting through a lot of leads,” said Major Ray Tuttoilmondo with the Galveston County Sheriff’s Office. “Nothing has hit a home run yet.”

Forensic dental examination has narrowed the girl’s age to between 2 and 3 years. She is described as white, 32 to 35 inches tall and 25 to 30 pounds. She had waist-long, wavy blond or light brown hair. She was wearing a Target-brand pink, flowing skirt, a pink or red shirt and white light-up tennis shoes with purple flowers on them.

Several callers believe that the child’s body may be that of Madeleine McCann, a 4-year-old British girl whose disappearance from a resort hotel in Portugal in May has made international headlines, Tuttoilmondo said.

“Based on the totality of the circumstances, we do not believe it’s Madeleine,” Tuttoilmondo said and added that his office is working with the FBI to completely rule out the possibility.

Local authorities and the FBI are going through missing person reports from across country in an effort to identify the girl.

“It’s a slow process,” Tuttoilmondo said. “We have to call the original investigating agency and see if anything matches up.”

Galveston County Crime Stoppers set up a memorial fund to pay for her funeral as well as an account to offer a reward for anyone who helps to solve this crime.

A prayer vigil was held Sunday afternoon.

A fisherman found the girl late Monday night. Her body was inside a blue plastic utility box that washed ashore along the Intercoastal Waterway.

The Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office ruled the child had been dead for at least two weeks and sustained a skull fracture. The cause of death has not been determined but authorities are treating the case as a homicide.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Galveston County sheriff’s Office at 409.766.2222, the agency’s tip line at 866.248.8477 or any Crime Stoppers organization.

How could a child be missing for 2 weeks and there not be a report on her…sounds like the parents are involved. And the make do casket…set out in the water like Moses…deffinately a Christian. Low or middle class…defineatly white family…think Texans, who is she?

A parent would see to it that her clothes and shoes where still on…not an abductor. How could they let this happen to her.

From LAS VEGAS, Nevada…Authorities trying to aid two girls seen in a sexually explicit videotape say they have identified one and were showing images of the other Thursday in the hopes that someone would recognize her.

Police want to know the identity of this little girl, who appears to be 4 or 5.

artmisinggirlnyeshriff.jpgartmisinggirlnyeshriff.jpgartmisinggirlnyeshriff.jpg

The tape was turned in to police by a man who said he found it in the desert.

It shows a man performing sex acts on a girl around 4 or 5 years old, and shows a girl believed to be 10 to 12 years old appearing in “some kind of peep show,” said Nye County sheriff’s detective David Boruchowitz.

Authorities hope identifying the girls will help them locate the abuser.

Still photos of the younger girl, fully clothed, have been widely broadcast. Boruchowitz announced Thursday that the older girl had been identified.

artmisinggirlnyeshriff.jpgartmisinggirlnyeshriff.jpgartmisinggirlnyeshriff.jpg

He said the photos of the younger girl were being released because her life could be in danger.

“She could still be in this situation and be abused currently as we speak,” Boruchowitz said.

“The easiest way to explain it is if you can imagine the absolute worst things that can happen to a little girl at the hands of an adult male, that has happened and beyond,” he said of the video. “It is by far the most heinous and horrible thing that you can possibly imagine on there.”

The older girl did not appear to have been sexually abused on the tape and the footage appeared to have been shot from a different room, Boruchowitz said.

Investigators were examining whether the two segments were filmed with the same video camera, he said.

artmisinggirlnyeshriff.jpgartmisinggirlnyeshriff.jpgartmisinggirlnyeshriff.jpg

A 26-year-old Pahrump man, Darren Tuck, surrendered the tape to Nye County sheriff’s investigators September 8, after another man reported seeing it, Boruchowitz said.

Tuck told detectives he found the videotape in the desert outside Pahrump more than five months ago, although Boruchowitz said the tape didn’t appear to have been exposed to weather or elements.

Investigators think the tape is less than two years old, a sheriff’s office official told CNN.

Boruchowitz said investigators don’t think Tuck made the tape. Tuck was arrested September 19 on charges of promoting child pornography and possession of child pornography, felonies. The top charge carries a possible sentence of up to life in prison.

Tuck was released without bail, pending arraignment November 26 in Pahrump Justice Court, a court official said.

Pahrump is a small town 60 miles west of Las Vegas.

Hi my name is Miss Kiki, I was rescued by my new mom on February 9th. She just knew that some thing just wasn’t right with me. My Vet found out after doing a Bile Acid Blood Test on me that I have a Hepatic Liver Shunt which means my blood is full of toxins all the time.

This is a very costly operation with a stay in the hospital required.

Could you please help me by making a donation of any size even a Loonie would be appreciated and if there are any corporations on this site that would like to help that would be great. Please help save my life so I can become a “Therapy Dog” like my Sister Trixie.

Donations are no longer being accepted as Miss Kiki’s little body just couldn’t fight any more.
The Mom Person Marlaine Albert, thanks you from the bottom of her heart for trying to save
Miss Kiki.

AS AN UPDATE (05-26-08)…Marlaine now has a new fur ward and is still in the dog assistance program. We applaud you for your efforts, Marlaine…..The Baby Boomer Queen and readers…
