Former Kamper and close friend of my parents, Richard Goldsmith has passed away. Dick was the father of J.P. Goldmsith whom many of you will remember. Condolences to the Goldmsith family.
Ted Bromwell will be 90 April 22. His phone number is 412-321-4118. I hope some of you who remember him will give him a call.
Donald Trump is notorious for not paying his bills and has relied on his Russian connection to bail him out on occasion. He might need to do so again someday so he can't afford to offend them. That's why this little- noticed local event is so telling.
A Russian and a Czechoslovakian recently visited the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. They were attacked and eaten by a mating-pair of black bears. The Park Rangers got there too late, and had to shoot both bears.
The Russian Ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, was appalled and demanded Trump make the US government find his countryman's remains.
Confronted with this, Trump & the ambassador came in person to Knoxville TN to pressure the park service to cut open the female bear. When they did as ordered, Trump pointed and said to Kislyak "There, these are the Russian's remains."
Kislyak asked, "How do you know this one is the Russian?”
Trump replied, "Because the Czech is in the male.”
Am very sorry to hear this news. Have many wonderful memories of you, John, & wish you well. Bob
How lucky I was to have Dick and Joan David Sundheim, Chuck Half, David Breakstone And I have heard from David Lowenstein , John Weiner and Trippy Fleishman all from Kamp Kewanee .
Janet was active in many organizations in the Pittsburgh community and they all had representatives at her funeral last Tuesday. It was a huge event. She deserved it.
KK friendship bonds go deep and can be wonderful heartache reducers as evidenced today at Janet Spear's funeral service. Dick Sundheim served as an honorary pallbearer. Nehru was John Spear's kounselor.
Am sorry to hear of Jim Ratner's passing, but delighted to have read great article about Lew Klein. From my work with TN universities, I kan attest that having a kollege named after you is a VERY big deal. Kongrats to all the Kleins.
Kool & rainy here today but daffodils, hyacinths, lenten roses, tulips, etc are blooming like krazy & tell us that spring is here!
We lost Jim Ratner, Of Greensburg,Pa(now Florida) last night. A
Kewaneean of 1950? 1951? He loved Kamp and has been ill for many years.
Wonderful article, even though it misspelled "kamp" and failed to mention KTG. Kongratulations, a great tribute to Lew!

Kamp Songs - there are some songs that always remind me of Kamp because they were played non-stop during the summers I was there. I remember "In The Summertime" by Mongo Jerry and "Take It Easy" by the Eagles. I heard one the other night at my local record store - "Timothy" by the Buoys. It was a local hit since the band was from Wilkes Barre. I immediately said I remembered the song and a woman there said her father was in the band! Great memories. Then there are the memories of John Samuels playing Neil Young songs on his electric guitar...
Proud to share this press release from Temple University about my dad. It starts: "In tribute to broadcasting pioneer Lew Klein, who has spent more than six decades teaching at Temple University and mentored hundreds of TV professionals throughout his career, the university’s School of Media and Communication will be renamed the Lew Klein College of Media and Communication."
Tiger sent in this photo from the 60s. Thanks, Tiger!

Sandy Jo--You know that there were devastating forest fires in that region just a few months ago, so not all your views will be scenic. Still, the Great Smoky Mountains Natl Park is wonderful--go hiking, definitely visit Cade's Cove (the road there to/from Gatlinburg is great), tubing is lotsa fun, drive up to Clingman's Dome, picnic at the Chimneys, etc. I think Pigeon Forge is kinda awful (except, maybe, for Dollywood amusement park). Gatlinburg somewhat better (fire notwithstanding). Lemme know when you plan to be this way & if Karen & I aren't in Ireland (dates unsure right now) we can try to get together. KKW.
Tiger..will bew visiting the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area in April, any suggestions on what to do. Going with daughter and her husband, her in-laws and with my girl friend. Thanks
