Rachael Rays Mom An early TV cooking demonstration featuring Martha Brooks. The TV station WRGB began experimental broadcasts in 1928. In the early 1940's, Brooks starred in the station's (and, some believe, the nation's) first commercially-sponsored television program, "Keeping Your Home Shipshape." For this role Brooks assumed another alias, Mrs. Ima Fixit. She starred on the program opposite a puppet created by Joe Owens.

Bill Gallo Passes at age 88 Bill Gallo, a cartoonist and columnist for the New York Daily News, whose playful characters included that of New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner as General Von Steingrabber, has died. He was 88. Gallo, who worked for the paper for seven decades, died Tuesday from complications of pneumonia at White Plains Hospital, the News reported Tuesday. "His death closed a chapter in the storied history of The News," said Daily News Chairman and publisher Mortimer Zuckerman told the paper. "The passing of our great cartoonist, colleague and friend Bill Gallo marks the end of an era." Gallo profiled in ink and sometimes in words most of the great sports figures of the past century, going back to Jack Dempsey, Man O' War, Jesse Owens and Dizzy Dean and his St. Louis Cardinals' Gas House Gang. The latter were his secret heroes, he told The Associated Press in an interview in 2000, secret because he devoted a lifetime at a drawing bo ard to amusing New York's rabidly loyal sports fans.

Johnny Owen - Boxing Fatality This is the concluding segment of a BBC documentary on Welsh boxer Johnny Owen. Owen died from injuries he suffered in a world bantamweight championship fight versus titleholder Lupe Pintor of Mexico on September 19, 1980. Owen's scrawny appearance--and his nickname the "Matchstick Man"--belied the fact he was a scrappy battler with a 25-1-1 record who held the Welsh, British, Commonwealth, and European bantamweight championships. The title fight took place in front of a hostile crowd of Mexicans and Mexican-Americans at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles. Before, during, and after the fight, Owens' handlers and the Welsh fans who had travelled thousands of miles to support Owen were routinely pelted with cups of urine thrown at them by the Hispanic fans. Nevertheless, Owen surprised everyone by putting on a competitive fight. Some writers had Owen ahead after eight rounds, but he was tiring. In the ninth round he was knocked down for the first time in his pro career. In the fateful twelfth round, Pintor floored Owen again. Owen rose and a few seconds later was knocked unconscious by a Pintor straight right. A blood clot formed on Owen's brain. He never regained consciousness and died 45 days after the fight. He was 24 years old. Owen's family held no grudge against Pintor and encouraged him to continue his boxing career. When a memorial statue to Owen was about to erected in his hometown of Merthyr Tydfil, Wales in 2000, Owen's father insisted Pintor perform the official unveiling. Pintor obliged.

Luz Long Helps Jesse Owens At the 1936 Berlin Olympics, Jesse Owens won four gold medals. His toughest struggle was in the long jump. Owens was the overwhelming favorite to win the event, but he fouled on his first two attempts. A third foul would eliminate him. Germany's Luz Long, the European long jump champion, went out of his way to assist the discouraged Owens. Long (who had set a new Olympic record with one of his qualifying jumps) informed Owens that he could easily qualify for the finals by leaping several inches behind the foul line. Owens followed Long's advice--leaping with at least four inches to spare--and qualified for the long jump finals. In the finals, the Olympic record was broken five times. Owens had the longest leap and won the gold medal. Long was the first to congratulate him. Owens and Long became friends. Long was killed serving with the German army in Sicily in 1943. Long was posthumously awarded the Coubertin Medal for Sportsmanship by the IOC. After the war, Long's widow and son continued to regularly correspond with Owens until his death in 1973.

Iconic Depression-Era Photo Thirty-two-year-old Florence Owens Thomson became the face of the Great Depression after she was photographed by Dorothea Lange in 1936. Lange, a photographer of some repute, had been hired by the federal government to capture images of how the hard times of the 1930 were affecting Americans. The photo--which Lange titled "Migrant Mother"--did not identify Thompson by name, only that she was a 32-year-old widowed mother of seven children who was among at least 2,500 transient and destitute people seeking menial work as a pea picker in a California camp. The compelling photo was widely reproduced in newspapers across the continent and Thompson was subsequently identified. She died in 1983 at age 80.
