Funeral services set for former Brockton chief Bob Hayden - Enterprise News

Monday, March 27, 2017

But it wasn’t always smooth due to setbacks in his personal life – all while still battling cancer. At one point, he fell while running down Mount Greylock in Williamstown and broke his nose, suffered facial fractures and required 15 stitches. He went back to work two days later.Then, while riding his bicycle in his hometown of Hingham a few months later, Hayden was hit by a vehicle and seriously injured. He suffered broken ribs, a concussion and several cuts and bruises.“He had always been an avid runner and athlete. He didn’t just ride his bicycle around the neighborhood, he’d go out and ride 20 miles,” Carpenter said. “When he was struck by the SUV, most people wouldn’t have survived those injuries. He was just too big, too strong. It didn’t take him long before he was back and directly involved in the day-to-day operations, even before physically coming back to work.”During his tenure in Brockton, Hayden re-implemented the motorcycle unit as part of his crime-fighting plan. He added a stress unit for officers who have been involved in or witnessed traumatic events. He came up with a list of the 50 worst criminals and worked diligently to get those people off the streets. He took a compassionate approach to the opioid epidemic and helped get overdose-reversing Narcan into police cruisers. And he expanded community policing.“I felt having him come in for a year would make that much of a difference,” Carpenter said. “He was transformative with that police department, particularly the patrol officers – they embraced him, he raised morale, he cared about everyone that worked for him. He believed in people feeling safe in their neighborhoods.”When Hayden was out while recovering from the bicycle accident, it was then-Lt. John Crowley who he put in charge of the department. And Crowley now leads the department he worked side-by-side with Hayden at.“It’s sad,” Crowley said of Hayden’s death. “I was privileged to meet him and work with him and get to know him. I was fortunate enough to have spent time with him. He will be sorely missed. He was a natural leader and he got people to follow and to do – he was a motivator. He was one of a kind.”Recently, Hayden was still undergoing treatment for prostate cancer. The Enterprise sat down with him at Signature Healthcare Brockton Hospital a year and two weeks ago to discuss a new comprehensive cancer center coming to the city through the hospital’s partnership with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.Hayden spoke fondly about his doctor, Dr. Rolf Freter, who also treated his wife, Kathleen Hayden, who had stage 4 cancer. Just over a week after the article was published in The Enterprise announcing Freter’s new role in Brockton, Kathleen Hayden lost her battle with cancer.“It’s sad to see that both he and his wife have passed, especially being so close. She was always by his side when he was in the city and working as chief,” Eaniri said. “He had some great ideas and some different thoughts and theories on what to do with the police department. As a city councilor, I never had a bad word to say about Mr. Hayden. People liked him in the city and they thought he was breath of fresh air.”Carpenter said that anyone who came in contact with Hayden fell in love with him because of his care for all people. At one point during his time in the city, Hayden didn’t tell anyone ahead of time, but he went to Perkins Park, a public park on North Main Street that is often occupied by a large number of homeless pe...

Charles L. Schultze, economist in two Democratic administrations, dies at 91 - Washington Post

Monday, October 10, 2016

Rita Hertzog. She died in 2014. Survivors include six children, Karen Hoffman of Raleigh, N.C., Kevin Schultze of Jackson, Wyo., Lynn Jones of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Kathleen Schultze of Williamstown, Mass., Carol Kasunic of Darnestown, Md., and Mary Chris Weintrob of Bethesda, Md.; a brother, Bill Schultze of Alexandria; 16 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.Dr. Schultze’s passion for precision was not confined to economics. It reached back to the wording of the citation that accompanied his Bronze Star Medal for combat in Germany (he also received the Purple Heart). The incident occurred on April 2, 1945, five weeks before the end of the war in Europe.He was standing up behind a .50 caliber machine gun mounted on a Jeep during a reconnaissance patrol when enemy machine gun fire raked the area. “Instead of taking cover from the murderous fire, he manned his machine gun on his vehicle, being in an exposed position, until wounded,” it said.In an interview for this obituary, he said the rest of the citation was “jazzed up” by superiors to make him look more...

Iowan's world-known air king - Clinton Herald

Monday, September 05, 2016

Winnipeg, Canada, when his plane was caught by a gust of wind and he crashed 60 feet to the ground. In reality, he escaped with only slight injuries.Ely was born on a farm near Williamstown, Iowa, in 1886. Growing up with his attorney father in Davenport, he spent time working in a garage and honed his skills as a mechanic. He also became an expert automobile driver, and in August 1904, Ely broke a record driving from Davenport to Iowa City. The previous record had been set by Ely himself when he made the trip in two hours and 26 seconds. Ely’s new record was two hours and 10 seconds.By 1910, Ely’s passion for automobiles had taken him to Portland, Oregon, where he worked for an auto dealer named E. Harry Wemme, who also happened to be an agent for Curtiss Aviation. Wemme owned a Curtiss biplane but had never flown it. Ely had never flown but offered to take to the skies with his employer’s plane. It didn’t end well.The inexperienced Ely crashed the plane but escaped injury. But the short flight awakened his interest in flying. He purchased the damaged plane from Wemme and taught himself to fly, entering exhibitions in Canada and the United States.Eventually he met Glenn Curtiss, who would become known as “Founder of the American Aircraft Industry.” Curtiss offered Ely a job on his exhibition team, performing in air shows around the country, including Sioux C...
