Hurray for Karin

She made it to the Sailing Singles' Skipper Awards Dinner on Saturday Oct 1. We celebrate her courage

See the photos on the next page






In the photo above with Karin Weber in the center are clockwise Ren Bryant, Peggy Jo and Loretta Church.

Karin looked beautiful and even got out of her wheelchair for a dance. Here she is briefly detached from her oxygen tank dancing with John Chesney.

Please keep holding her up in prayer. Karin needs a real miracle.

The highly successful event was hosted by the the AMCOF pictured below. From L-R Larry Foy, chairman, Jim Henderson emcee, John Chesney and Joseph Flack.

Bill Goodwin was voted Skipper of the Year and Mary Ann Garback was named the favorite crewmember. Ken Hooper won the prize for naming the ideal crew. All skippers were recognized for their contribution to the club as Jim Henderson quipped "Without them we would just be a group of people standing on the shore of Lake St. Clair."

By the way AMCOF stands for All Male Committee of Four.

There will be a slideshow of pictures from the event on the Sailing Singles website once all of the photos are gathered and uploaded.

  • Rosh Hashana OCT.3-5
  • Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year, commemorating the creation of Adam and Eve, the first human beings. On Rosh Hashana, the Books of Life and Death are open on the heavenly desk. On this "Day of Judgment," we each stand before God and offer our best case for being "created anew" -- i.e. granted another year of life. Rosh Hashana is to hear the sounding of the shofar.The shofar blasts represent three distinct themes of the day: It is the sound of the King's coronation It is the sobbing cry of a Jewish heart It is an alarm clock, arousing us from our spiritual slumber There is a beautiful website that might take a long time to load but it is the worth the wait.

  • From the October 2005 issue of Hour Detroit
  • They call him the singing hot dog man, but Charley Marcuse could also be known as the mustard Nazi.

    Widely recognized for his controversial operatic bellowing of "HoOoOoT DoOoOgs" during Tigers games at Comerica Park, the vendor also has irked some by his refusal to sell ketchup on his franks.

    Marcuse says he's a traditionalist, and with tradition comes mustard on hot dogs — no ketchup. Now he's taking his philosophy a step forward.

    This fall, Marcuse, 23, plans to launch his own line of spicy brown mustard in plastic squeeze bottles. The product: Charley's Ballpark Mustard. The catch phrase: It'll make you sing.

    "I just figured that since I make people eat mustard, I better give them a good mustard to eat," Marcuse says.

    "The public interest has been incredible." Marcuse envisions a full-flavored mustard with full or partially ground seeds — something with texture. He's lined up Elena's of Auburn Hills as his manu- facturer in an effort to keep the product local. He plans to sell the stuff in metro Detroit specialty stores and on his new Web site:

    "Mustard seed, vinegar and water: You can do a lot with those three simple ingredients," Marcuse says. "This is going to have a lot of taste and flavor. Not real hot, mind you, but something with a zing to it."

    Marcuse has been singing at Tigers games since 1999. He picked up the idea while working at a Three Tenors concert at Tiger Stadium. Last year, Tigers officials asked him to pipe down after some fan complaints. The subsequent protest by fans who supported him gained him mentions in Sports Illustrated, an interview? on the BBC radio and a chance to sing on the Today show. Now, he warbles four times a game between innings as a compromise, but he's not thrilled about it. "I don't see how? I can be called a distraction in a ballpark that has a Ferns wheel, merry-go-round and giant score-board," he says. "People still constantly ask me to sing." Still, the notoriety has given Marcuse a chance to work Lions games this fall — and he's got a spot at the Super Bowl. But Lions lovers better not expect any ketchup. 'There's an old Dirty Harry movie where Clint Eastwood tells someone: 'You know, what really makes me sick is when you put ketchup on your hot dogs,'" Marcuse says. "I'll leave it at that." — Ben Schmitt
