He’s A Norman Rockwell Fan
When Englewood resident Ray Hazel talks or writes about matters historical (and sometimes hysterical), he likes to invoke the name of Norman Rockwell, America’s most prolific illustrator and painter, known most famously for his cover illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post and Boys’ Life. Rockwell was able to romanticize moments of everyday life in hometown America in a way that struck a chord with viewers—a chord they could play ever afterward in their minds. And Ray recognizes many “Norman Rockwell moments” he experienced in the process of growing up.

She’s A Nifty Nonagenarian
Even in our high-tech society, with healthcare advances occurring every year, it takes a lot of luck and a certain amount of grit to survive to the age of 90– and at age 97, Rosemary Hagen has had her share of both. In fact, she almost didn’t reach her tenth birthday, having at age nine nearly perished in a vicious rainstorm that caught up the small rowboat she and her 18-year-old brother Edward (who should have known better) were using to cross Minnesota’s Lake Vermilion at night. But they were rescued, and Rosemary has lived on to tell the tale...

He Flies High, Dives Deep
For Englewood’s Don Musilli, those words constitute a perfect analogy for both his life as a business entrepreneur and his leisure activities. In each case he has been willing to take risks to achieve his goals–risks that maybe most people would shy away from. But he says, “If you fail to aim, you aim to fail.” And it has not been in Don’s DNA to fail.

The Man Who Took A $50,000 Walk
Mike Schyck is not exactly an unknown around these parts. For one thing, he’s lived here most of the time since moving to Englewood with his family 40 years ago. For another, he was the star of Lemon Bay High School’s nationally ranked wrestling team in the late 1980s and went on to become a two-time All-American wrestler at Ohio State University...

Nola's Notes
SHS Virtual Dog TrainingDoes this sound like you with your dog?
“I wish my dog would stop jumping on people; stop being mouthy or nippy; not pull on the leash; not be a ‘trash hound’; come when I call; listen to me; and understand basic commands”.

Living The American Dream
In his book, The Epic of America, published in 1931 during the Great Depression, James Truslow Adams introduced the concept of the American Dream: “that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement.” In short, we don’t have to be born with a silver spoon in our mouth. We can all achieve our dreams if we just work hard and stay out of trouble.
In an even more sanguine Hollywood version of the American Dream, a nice guy in a small town marries his high school sweetheart, they raise a family—let’s say, two boys and a girl—he makes his fortune, and they live happily ever after. Meet Bill Stiver, and you can have it either way.

Portrait Of An Artist As A Young Man
Bill Farnsworth has to be one of the most visibly notable persons in our neighborhood.
