Les Burkhardt

To the best of my knowledge the Chipwitch man is Richard Lamotta, ESQ. He was also the video person on the CBS Morning News or whatever name it was called at that period. He ran for, was elected and served as 1212 BM, Angelo Dumont was his second in command at 1212. Also, Bruno was just a so-so tonk player. Are there any more tonk players around?

Bruno

You're so right Goody. We never did get to know each other personally, but we did have respect for one another. The only common ground we did have was the Chyron. You did the news and when you weren't available, the Chyron operators filled in for you. As I said the respect was there at all times. In our own way, I think we pioneered graphics, you for news and I for sports. Thanks for remembering.

Al Cafiero

Let me introduce myself: I am Renata Cafiero, Al(bert) Cafiero's wife.

I believe Al last e-mailed you re: "need reception antenna info" back on
June 23. Since then, Al has taken ill again and was hospitalized with
high fever and, what was thought to be, "the flu". He was discharged
and sent to a nursing home and discharged from there to the
home--misdiagnosed and discharged much too early. This resulted in a
re-admission on Saturday, 8 August with extreme shortness of breath, a
terrible cough and diagnosis of "pneumonia" which has worsened even now.

Al is in Englewood Hospital--for the duration--and would be very
heartened to hear from, or see, any of his CBS friends. I would be
happy to answer any questions that may arise. My e-mail is
"wantsrail at verizon.net", telephone no. 201.871.1218 and address: 27 West
Clinton Avenue, Unit 1-P, Tenafly NJ 07670.

Thank you for your interest.

Update on John Taddei

He is still in the hospital due to fact that in addition to the Shingles, he came down with a Staph infection. When docs determine that Staph is gone Tad will be released to Burke Rehab Center.

He does not always answer the hospital room land line because there is no bell, just a flashing light, but he can be reached on his cell phone at: 914-275-5322.

This update was supplied this morning by KC2EMG on the 2 meter net.
