Funeral for former Springfield police detective Kevin Burnham to be held Friday in Wilbraham - MassLive.com

Saturday, June 10, 2017

WILBRAHAM - The funeral for Kevin Burnham, the retired Springfield Police Detective who died in an apparent suicide Monday following an investigation into his alleged larcenies from the city evidence room, will be held Friday in Wilbraham.Burnham--who served for over 40 years with the Springfield Police Department, and retired in 2014--was initially indicted in January of 2016, after a review of the city's evidence room showed that hundreds of thousands of dollars had been stolen under his watch. A case brought by state attorney general Maura Healey's office would eventually allege that Burnham had stolen approximately $400,000 over the course of approximately four years. Burnham's death followed a slew of postponements for his upcoming trial; initially scheduled to occur in October of 2016, the trial date was pushed back numerous times.On Monday, after failing to appear for a scheduled hearing where he was expected to plead guilty to the charges against him, a Hampden Superior Court judg...

Howard Chasanow, judge on Maryland Court of Appeals, dies at 79 - Washington Post

Saturday, April 08, 2017

I don’t care. People who hit policemen or teachers go to jail.”Howard Stuart Chasanow was born in Washington on April 3, 1937, and grew up in Greenbelt, Md. His father, Abraham, was a Navy Department employee who, in a highly publicized case, was suspended in 1953 as an alleged security risk.It was the peak of a communists-in-government scare stoked by Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.), and the elder Chasanow fought the accusation for 13 months.In public hearings, the Navy produced no evidence to support the charges, nor did it identify an accuser. The Navy’s case, The Post reported, was “based on rumor, incorrect testimony, shoddy investigative techniques and had possibly been tinged by anti-Semitism.” He was reinstated with an apology from the Navy for what it conceded was a “grave injustice.”Mr. Chasanow was reportedly offered a new Navy position but left government service and later practiced law and became a real estate broker. Anthony Lewis, then a reporter for the Washington Daily News and later for the New York Times, won a Pulitzer Prize for his coverage of the Abraham Chasanow case.“That was an extremely traumatic time for me,” Howard Chasanow, a teenager at the time, told The Post in 1979. “When my dad was vindicated the way he was, it was very important to all of us.”His interest in the law stemmed in large part from the legal battle his father faced. He graduated from the University of Maryland in 1958 and from its law school in 1961. He received a master’s degree from Harvard Law School in 1962. After Air Force service, he was an assistant prosecutor in Prince George’s County and a lawyer in private practice.His first marriage, to Marilyn Madden, ended in divorce. Survivors include his wife of 34 years, Deborah Koss Chasanow, senior U.S. District Court judge for the District of Maryland, of College Park; a daughter from his first marriage, Andrea Gentle of London; three sisters, former Post food critic Phyllis Richman of Washington, Myrna Chasanow of Cheverly, Md., and Ruth Heitin of Alexandria; and two grandsons.Around the Prince George’s County Courthouse, Judge Chasanow liked to recount “the comma that saved a life.”A condemned man, the judge said, was en route to his execution when a telegram from the governor arrived. It read: “Pardon, impossible to execute.” He was spared.Only later did the warden discover there had been a typographical error. This was what had been intended: “Pardon impossible to execute.” The inadvertent comma had saved the condemned man’s life and the state had repealed the death penalty before the warden discovered the error.In May 1979, Judge Chasanow faced a similar situation in a death penalty case, declaring in court that his decision had to be based on “grammar and legislative intent,” and he said he stayed up most of the night poring through old grammar books.The defendant, William Joseph Parker, a transient Prince George’s County fireman, had been convicted of murder and rape. The relevant Maryland law allowed the death penalty for a conviction of murder while committing “rape or a sexual offense in the first degree.”Parker...

Innis Anne Nolan left her mark on Stouffville - YorkRegion.com

Monday, April 03, 2017

Charles died in 1992. Although privacy was important, Innis enjoyed a wide circle of friends. One of these was Lillian Abraham with whom she shared many rounds of golf at Stouffville’s Sleepy Hollow. In later years, ‘Boy’, a beautiful stray cat became a constant companion. From 1942 to 1965 Innis served as organist at Stouffville United Church. She and choir director, the late Lorne Boadway, worked closely together. For Innis, an immaculate backyard bordered with colourful flowers was a personal treasure. Florets, many of them wild, were permanently pressed between pages of old telephone books. They then became distinctive signatures on cards and letters. She also compiled hundreds of photo albums and accumulated many antiques. Because her husband, owner and publisher of the Stouffville Tribune, held prominent positions with both the provincial and Canadian newspaper associations, she accompanied him on many enjoyable trips. A favourite was a family visit to England, Ireland, Scotland and Europe. On occasions she turned her hand to operating the shop linotype along with staff employees Betty Acton, Joan Marshman and Stan Schmidt. What spare time she had was spent crocheting. Of all cherishes, family members remained a top priority, including son John whose death saddened her greatly; daughter Lynda, (Mrs. Tony Woodbridge), Bath, England; four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.   Firefighter honoured For a period of five days, flags at Whitchurch-Stouffville’s fire station No. 51 were lowered to half-mast. This act of respect served as a visible memorial to the late Don Doner, a volunteer firefighter more than 25 years. Mr. Doner died suddenly March 25 as the result of a heart attack. He was 87. Born at Gormley, the son of Clarence and Margaret Doner, Don grew up on the family’s Leslie Street farm, south of Stouffville Road. ...
