Bobby Vee, Sixties Pop Idol, Dead at 73 - RollingStone.com

Monday, November 21, 2016

Dakota, Vee's career took off the day after "the Day the Music Died": Following the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper – who were on their way to a concert in Moorhead, Minnesota on February 3rd, 1959 – the 15-year-old Vee and his band the Shadows were among the local acts recruited to replace the rock legends on the bill.Despite the sad circumstances, the Shadows' gig was considered a success, with Vee calling the Moorhead show "the start of a wonderful career."Vee and the Shadows soon recorded a regional hit with "Suzie Baby," which resulted in Vee signing a record deal with Liberty Records. Minnesota native Bob Dylan, who called Vee in 2013 "the most meaningful person I've ever been onstage with," would later cover "Suzie Baby" in concert.[embedded content]Dylan, who played in the Shadows with Vee in 1959, also praised the singer in his Chronicles, Volume One. Vee "had a metallic, edgy tone to his voice and it was as musical as a silver bell," Dylan wrote. "I'd always thought of him as a brother." Dylan briefly joined Vee's backing band as a pianist after Vee's brother brought Dylan, who called himself "Elston Gunnn," in for an audition. "He was a funny little wiry kind of guy and he rocked pretty good," Vee said.With Liberty Records, Vee kicked off a string of 38 Hot 100 hits, including his first two Top 10 singles in 1960, "Devil or Angel" and "Rubber Ball," which had a cover of Holly's "Everyday" as its B-side; Vee would later perform with Holly's backing band the Crickets in Paul McCartney-curated tributes to the late singer."There are so many synchronicities to the Buddy Hol...

West Fargo Sheyenne Principal Greg Grooters dies - INFORUM

Monday, November 21, 2016

He built quite the legacy.”   Grooters earned a bachelor’s degree in math education and computer science from Valley City State University. He then taught math at Fargo Shanley High School and Moorhead High School. He also coached track and cross country.Grooters earned a master’s degree in education from North Dakota State University and a doctorate in educational leadership from the University of North Dakota.An avid runner, Grooters always looked the picture of health, Stedman said, making Monday an even more difficult day for all who knew him.   Konschak said district officials brought all of the Sheyenne staff and students together about 9:45 a.m. Monday to inform them about Grooters death.She said staff from across the district immediately offered their time and support to those at Sheyenne High School. Administrators and school psychologists volunteered to be at the school Monday for anyone who needed to discuss the loss.“It made you proud to be a West Fargo staff member,” Konschak said. “When it’s one of your colleagues, you don’t know how anyone will react. [Their support] is so appreciated.”As news spread about Grooters’ death, colleagues, former students and team members under his coaching took to Facebook to share their respect for a teacher, coach and principal they said greatly affected their lives by working hard and treating them as individuals. They called him “one of the good ones” and a “tremendous human.”Sheyenne Assistant Principal Pam Cronin and Allen Burgad, the district’s assistant superintendent of secondary education, helped assume some of Grooters duties in his absence.Konschak said the district will assemble an administrative transition plan by the middle or end of this week to begin the process of naming a new Sheyenne High School principal.Funeral services will be at 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, at Cathedral of St. Mary in Fargo. Visitation will be from 5 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17, at the church, with a prayer service at 7.Grooters will be buried at Riverside Cemetery in Fargo.Funeral arrangements are being handled by West Funeral Home and Life Tribute Center in West Fargo.
