Andrea True- Singer of Disco Hit Dies at 68 Andrea True, the disco star who had such hits as 'More More More' and 'What's Your Name, What's Your Number,' died Nov. 7 in a Kingston, N.Y. hospital, the Daily Freeman reports. True, born Andrea Marie Truden, originally planned to become an actress in New York but became a porn star in films such as Deep Throat Part II and Lady on the Couch. True's career in music began when she went to Jamaica to film a commercial in 1975 but was not allowed to leave the country with the money she had earned. Instead of handing over her money, she recorded an early version of her eventual hit "More, More, More" and left Jamaica with the master tape. The song was remixed and released in 1976, becoming one of the iconic songs of the disco era. Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/andrea-true-dead-at-68-20111123#ixzz1gMVzOEHC

Bob Atcher and Churn Fresh Meadow Gold Remember Bob Atcher? Bob Atcher was born in Hardin County, Kentucky, and learned violin and guitar from his father, who was skillful at playing the fiddle. Bob attended Kentucky State University when he was only 14. He studied medicine and combined that with guitar playing and yodeling. He started out on radio in Louisville on WHAS. In 1939 he was offered a regular gig on Chicago station WBBM which was broadcast nationally by CBS. The show made him a national star, and he signed with ARC just before CBS bought the company. After the purchase Atcher was transferred to Okeh Records and then to Columbia Records, both CBS subsidiaries. Between 1939 and 1942, he recorded many duets with Loretta Applegate, who went by the stage name Bonnie Blue Eyes. Atcher fought in the Army in World War II and returned to performing in 1946. In 1948 Atcher signed on with WLS and became a performer on their National Barn Dance. As one of their biggest stars, he continued to chart national hits. In 1950, he signed with Capitol Records, and later in the 1950s moved to Kapp Records. He continued with the Barn Dance well into the 1960s, and re-signed to Columbia that decade, re-recording many of his songs in stereo. Atcher, like Gene Autry, was a shrewd businessman, and bought several businesses and invested in banking with the proceeds from his career. He was also the mayor of Schaumburg, Illinois from 1959 to 1979. He died in 1993.

While competing in the downhill at the Snow Cup in Alta, Utah on January 30, 1955, she suffered a near-fatal accident which resulted in paralysis from the neck down. It ironically occurred the same week that Kinmont, about two weeks shy of her 19th birthday, was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated dated January 31, 1955. After her rehabilitation, she went on to graduate from UCLA with a B.A. in German and earned a teaching credentials from the University of Washington. She had a long career as an educator first in Washington and then in Beverly Hills, California. She taught special education at Bishop Union Elementary School from 1975 to 1996 in her hometown of Bishop. She was an accomplished painter who had many exhibitions of her artwork. Kinmont was the subject of two movies: The Other Side of the Mountain in 1975, and The Other Side of the Mountain Part 2 in 1978. Both films starred Marilyn Hassett as Kinmont. Jill married trucker John Boothe in November 1976, and they made their home in Bishop until her death.

Dondi - Comic Strip 1955-1986 Dondi was a daily comic strip that ran for more than 30 years. It was about a large-eyed war orphan. Created by Gus Edson and Irwin Hasen, at its peak of popularity it ran in more than 100 newspapers. The first installment ran on September 25, 1955. The final Dondi comic strip appeared on June 8, 1986. Dondi's original backstory describes him as a five-year-old World War II orphan of Italian descent. The boy had no memory of his parents or his name, so when a pretty Red Cross worker said he was "a dandy boy," he thought she was naming him Dondi. Two American soldiers who spoke no Italian, Ted Wills and Whitey McGowan, found the child wandering through a war-torn village. The soldiers brought the child back to the United States and Ted eventually became his adoptive father.
