Frederick B. Lacey, Who Prosecuted Corruption in New Jersey, Dies at 96 - New York Times

Monday, May 01, 2017

Ruggiero Boiardo, who was known as Richie the Boot.“What was only speculation when I last was here is now established,” he said on returning to the prosecutor’s office in 1969. “There is such a phenomenon as organized crime. Call it the Mafia, call it Cosa Nostra, call it Organized Crime, it exists.”Mr. Lacey fought to release hundreds of pages of transcripts of F.B.I. wiretaps to demonstrate the mob’s reach. (In one, Mr. DeCarlo was overheard urging support for Mr. Addonizio’s political career, saying, “He’ll give us the city.”)“Organized crime is, in the vernacular, taking us over,” Mr. Lacey warned.The Times wrote that the tapes “surpassed the disclosures made in 1963 before a Senate committee by Joseph M. Valachi, the deserter from the Mafia,” and that by corralling the bosses and detailing the mob’s superstructure, Mr. Lacey and his team had succeeded in outlining “the most complete network of crime and official corruption that has yet to be brought to trial in an American courtroom.”As a prosecutor Mr. Lacey was notably evenhanded when he searched for talent. Among the last cases he handled in private practice before becoming the federal prosecutor was the bribery trial of an oil company executive whom he was defending as part of a legal dream team of Edward Bennett Williams and Simon H. Rifkind.The executive was convicted, thanks to a young Justice Department prosecutor, Herbert J. Stern. Mr. Lacey’s first appointment as a United States attorney was to hire Mr. Stern as his chief assistant.Correction: April 12, 2017An earlier version of this obituary misspelled the surname of a former mayor of Jersey City who was prosecuted by Mr. Lacey. He was Thomas J. Whel...

Together for 7 decades, St. Cloud couple die 23 hours apart - Florida Times-Union

Monday, April 03, 2017

March 1. His wife followed at 5:10 a.m. March 2.“As my dad said, he had to go first because he had to hold the door for her,” granddaughter Christine Dudgeon said.The phenomenon of two people in a deep relationship dying a short time apart even has a name: the widowhood effect, also known as broken-heart syndrome.It’s not limited to married couples. On Dec. 27, actress and author Carrie Fisher, 60, died of a heart attack. Her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, 84, died the next day of a stroke after reportedly telling her son, “I want to be with Carrie.”And in 2003, country singer-songwriter Johnny Cash died just four months after his wife, country star June Carter Cash. Their longtime passion and 35-year marriage were chronicled in the 2005 movie “Walk the Line.”The Bihls’ life was decidedly less volatile, but no less romantic.Elmer Bihl started college during World War II but was called away to work on his father’s vegetable farm in Wheelersburg in southern Ohio, said the couple’s daughter Joanne Minor, 66, of Circleville, Ohio.The Bihls married on Sept. 25, 1948, at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Wheelersburg, and Elmer Bihl became the owner and manager of Andrew Bihl Sons produce farm, which grew sweet corn, tomatoes and other crops. Ruth Bihl raised their children, Donald, Joanne, Dolores, Paul and Roger, cooked, sewed, gardened and kept house.At the end of the workday, Elmer played badminton, croquet, baseball and pinochle with the children, and the family took occasional trips to Florida, which they loved.“They were wonderful (parents) — strict but fair, said their son Roger Bihl, 57, of St. Cloud.Family, church and hard work were at the center of their world, but the base that supported everything was Elmer and Ruth Bihl’s devotion to each another.When she stood at the stove, sometimes with a smudge of flour on her face, he’d give her a hug and a kiss as he headed back to work on the farm after lunch. Whenever he looked at her, it was obvious that ...

Alex Tizon, former Seattle Times reporter who won Pulitzer Prize, dies at 57 - The Seattle Times

Monday, March 27, 2017

Mr. Tizon flew to the tiny town to write a lengthy magazine piece for The Atlantic on the family’s struggles and the broader phenomenon of why so many people vanish in that state.Those who worked with Mr. Tizon said the story was emblematic of his career — the way he spent so much time deeply reporting the piece, and the fact that he chose a topic that others in the media likely would have ignored.“He had a real interest in marginal characters and people who had not been in the spotlight,” said his editor on The Atlantic piece, Denise Wills. “He almost became a member of the extended family for these people.”In an interview last year, Mr. Tizon told the Harvard journalism program: “The stories I work on, especially for any length of time, do tend to become personal to me.”Jacqui Banaszynski, a University of Missouri journalism professor who was Mr. Tizon’s editor for two years at The Seattle Times, echoed others who said his death was a loss to the journalism community. She recalled Mr. Tizon as “an almost philosopher essayist” in his approach, and that the paper would send him on stories that were complex and needed to be told at a deeper level than the standard news story.A day after Sept. 11, 2001, for instance, the paper sent Mr. Tizon and photographer Alan Berner out for a series of several lengthy vignettes from various parts of the country that chronicled how communities were coping with the fallout of the terror attacks.“We need more people doing the kind of work he learned how to do, telling those authentic, true stories, rather than just race-and-chase journalism,” Banaszynski said.Mr. Tizon had a profound impact on other reporters, as well.Lisa Heyamoto remembers starting out as a summer intern at The Seattle Times in 2001, sitting at the desk across from Mr. Tizon.“I was just this flush-faced kid and was so hungry to get better and Alex paid attention to my work, and gave me feedback and clarified a lot of things for journalism for me at a time when I was really hungry and really impressionable,” Heyamoto said. “It made a huge impact on me, and I never forgot it.”Heyamoto, who later got full-time reporting jobs at The Seattle Times and The Sacramento Bee and worked alongside Mr. Tizon when the two were instructors at Oregon, said that whenever she got writer’s block she would reread a 2000 story by Mr. Tizon called “Thom Jones and the Cosmic Joke,” about a former school janitor in Lacey who became a celebrated but tortured writer. It turned a fairly simple story into a broader piece about suffering and life choices.“It reminded me of what you can do with a seemingly small story. He can tell this unsung story, and that’s a service to journalism, and a service to humanity,” said Heyamoto. “I modeled myself after him.”As a professor, his colleagues said he ditched the PowerPoint-and-lecture style and simply got up and told stories.He had a deep interest in fight clubs and boxing, and was an avid outdoorsman.His family was in Eugene on Saturday...
