M. and Heidi Campbell of Chapel Hill, NC and Tara C. Bigbie of Evans, GA; and four great-grand daughters. He is also survived by his sisters; Lillian Dalton of Scottsboro, AL and Maxine Bittinger of Boaz, AL. Lt Col Campbell was a veteran of WW II, the Korean Conflict, the Viet Nam Conflict and the Cold War. Following his retirement from the Army his passion became sailing. He completed every course offered by the Power Squadron and he and Dieta frequently signed on to crew sail boats between the Caribbean Islands and the mainland. He was often the only navigator aboard. He was also an accomplished singer with a wry sense of humor. He often regaled any audience with humorous, and sometimes ribald, ditties while telling delightful stories to the enjoyment of all who heard him. His crowning achievement though was managing the pain of the loss of his young wife while simultaneously rearing two small children to be strong, self-sustaining adults. He was fortunate to have found love and happiness again with his second wife of 50 years before losing her to cancer and enduring the pain of having lost two women he loved dearly. His funeral service will be at Chattanooga National Cemetery on Friday, February 24, 2017, at 3 PM. Rest in peace Dad. We love you.In lieu of flowers please make a donation in the memory of Lt Col Ralph H. Campbell to: Cancer Research Institute, One Exchange Plaza, 55 Broadway, Suite 1802, New York, NY 10006 You are invited to leave condolences at www.elkinsfuneralhome.com.Monday, November 21, 2016

Whereas Haaretz notes that relations with African states aren’t yet restored to where they were in the heyday of the 1960s, Israel Hayom’s Boaz Bismuth says they already are. He points to the economic boom in Africa as part of the reason for Netanyahu’s trip.“Africa of today is much quieter and peaceful than it was a decade ago,” he says, before reconsidering. “While states like Somalia, South Sudan and the Central African Republic are in a state of chaos, and Burundi returned to fighting, these states aren’t representative of the whole.”Think about that argument for a second.The bottom line for Bismuth is that Africa is 54 countries with 54 votes in the UN and international bodies and 54 economies. What he neglects to mention is that of those, more than one in five — Algeria, Chad, Comoros, Djibouti, Guinea, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Morocco, Somalia, Sudan, and Tunisia — don’t have relations with Israel.

September shooting death of 22-year-old Maryiah Coleman and her unborn child, Lexington police said Tuesday.Police charged Demetrioun L. Boaz, Joseph “Jodie” Fain, and Saquan Freeman, all age 20, in the case. All three are in police custody and face charges of first-degree murder, first-degree fetal homicide and first-degree robbery. Police said they are also “looking into” a fourth person.Lt. Albert Johnson, one of the investigators on Coleman’s case, explained at a news conference Tuesday afternoon how numerous interviews with people from the Winburn Drive community and witnesses to the shooting helped corroborate evidence found at the scene. Johnson did not elaborate on how many people witnessed the shooting.All three men were meeting an acquaintance in Winburn on Sept. 7 “with the intent to rob him,” Johnson said. “During the course of that robbery, the person they were robbing attempted to escape, and at that point, shots were fired,” Johnson said. “One of those shots was the cause of Maryiah Coleman’s death.”Johnson would not discuss which man shot Coleman.Johnson added that all three men knew that Coleman, who was walking her dog on Winburn Monday, November 21, 2016
Unable to attend high school, Daddy walked across the graduation stage from his earthly existence to life eternal while being cheered on by family who loved him deeply.Raised in the city of Boaz in Etowah County, Ala., Daddy worked on the family farm until the age of 17. Seeking an adventure and to build a life of his own, Daddy moved to Dallas.He worked at Sunshine Biscuit and a few other jobs before finding his niche at Holman Boiler Works. Beginning as a “helper,” Marlon worked his way from crew lead to shop foreman, field superintendent and outside sales representative.During a career spanning over 37 years, the student became the teacher and was recognized as one of the most respected welders in the boiler-making business.Marlon returned to Boaz and launched his own welding business and moved to Wichita, Kan. to provide leadership for another welding company.Following a seven-year hiatus from Holman, Marlon was asked to return where he worked until his pre-mature retirement due to complications caused by asbestosis.In 1957, Marlon met a young dark-haired Corsicana beauty named Doris Marie Washburn. The rumor is while working as a car hop at the Snappy’s Drive-In in West Dallas, Marie called the police to report a fender bender between Daddy and another man whose fists were about to fly. Fortunately, the only thing flying that night were sparks between Marlon anMonday, November 21, 2016
