When you're a fireman in New York City, there's a good chance you'll have alot of calls. Over 31 years, George R. Kreuscher, Lt. Ret. FDNY answered nearly 28,000 alarms. Perhaps the most memorable was one which happened while he was sleeping off a 3rd shift, on 9/11. That tragic day that changed the New York City skyline, Kreuscher and his FDNY brethren lost 343 firefighters when the towers fell. Personally, Kreuscher lost 100 friends on the force. Sixteen of them were sons of men he'd served with. In his book "Firemen", Kresucher talks about the life and times of serving the FDNY for more than three decades and recalls the lives of those lost in the terror attack that took down the Twin Towers.

Blue says the clinic is open to all area players from 5th grade and up, but is limited to 60 players. The clinic runs from 6p-9p on June 22nd at Hatton Memorial Gymnasium to give parents the opportunity to attend. Cost is $40. Get more details at 740-248-6400.
Kevin Carr on "Green Lantern" and "Mr. Popper's Penguins"
www.FatGuysAtTheMovies.com Kevin Carr says he's been waiting 30 years to see this weekend's big movie release "The Green Lantern" (watch the trailer), a comic book he grew up reading. Ryan Reynolds stars as the only earthling to become a Green Lantern. Carr says that yes some familiar with the character may be a bit bored with the foundation laying of the story, but gives it an enthusiastic thumbs up. Carr was less excited about Jim Carrey's "Mr. Popper's Penguins". Carr feels the penguin phase has probably passed for most, but the movie is safe for all ages and the kids will like it.
