George Adkins had a Sudden Cardiac Death today (June 22nd) at our Grandson’s Ball game. There were nurses and a Doctor at the ball field. They did CPR and they shocked him 3 times; an ambulance took him to Parkview Heart Hospital. They have him in stable condition. The people who worked on him saved his life….He has cracked ribs and is sedated. They are going to put in a defiburlater in a couple of days after they make sure is stable. Landy
The good news is of course that George is alive and well!! All Shufflers send best wishes to George for a complete and rapid recovery!!

The Story of Bold; INTRO: Sent Along by Gene Smith: Those of us who participated in the 70th Anniversary of D-Day will remember many things! Some stories will resonate more so than others, depending on your background and relationships.
Gene related the “Story of Bold” on the trip and I asked him if he would send it along in digital format which he has now done. We thank him. I have inserted 3 pix; (click on each to expand), I have added a pdf file which is in fact the “Story of Bold”. This story resonates with me because we had the brother and nephew of the tank commander, that being Ted Paisley and son Dave. It is the two of them in the pic.
Remember, you can refer the several items and pix to others by giving them the address of the BLOG >> http://theshuffler.net and telling them to insert 70th into the search rectangle (to be found at the top right when the window opens) AND THEN, hit search. A list of the 20 + articles will now appear, 10 on each page. To see the 2nd page of the list, click on “Older Posts” at the bottom left of the 1st page of 10 titles.

This Message from Sue Daidone: I am sorry to leave this say news… Jane O Bird has passed away after her fight with cancer. She will be missed by family and friends. Cards can be sent to her family at 28 Beech Ridge York, Me 03909. from Sue Daidone, Bradenton Shuffle Club.
IN 1990 JANE O’LOUGHLIN WAS INDUCTED INTO THE FSA HOF. Her supporting remarks read: “Jane continues to be one of the dominating players on the Ladies’ Pro circuit. Up to the present time she has amassed the amazing total of 413* points! Jane has won just about every major tournament and/or championship, including the F.SA. Masters, with her latest achievement being 1st Place in the 1990 Masters, held at Lake Worth. Friendliness and congeniality are Jane’s trademark, and she always has a “story” to relate to cheer her many, many friends. Jane has the youth to be in contention for a long time to come, and has the potential of being one of the greatest lady shufflers of all time. There is very little doubt but that Jane ‘belongs” in our shuffleboard Hall of Fame!”
Ken Offenther presented JANE-O the “MVP” Award as a part of the 100th Anniversary of Shuffleboard in Florida. Ken offered these remarks: “A JOVIAL STORY TELLER; ALWAYS WITH A SMILE; THIS EXTREMELY COLORFUL LADY HAS BEEN PLAYING SHUFFLEBOARD FOR 36 YEARS – AS LONG AS ANYONE CONSECUTIVELY IN SHUFFLEBOARD HISTORY!! SHE HAS PLAYED AGAINST ALL THE GREATS FROM MAE HALL TO JOAN COOK AND HAS DONE IT VERY WELL. 13 STATE MASTERS, WINNING IN 1986, 1990 AND AGAIN IN 1995 WHEN SHE POSTED 19 WINS AND 2 LOSSES, A RECORD NEVER BETTERED BY ANY WOMAN OR MAN. SHE IS #5 ON THE ALLTIME WOMEN’S POINT LIST AND WAS INDUCTED INTO THE FSA HALL OF FAME WAY BACK IN 1990.
JANE O BIRD WAS SLOWED DOWN IN JAN 2012 WITH A BROKEN SHOULDER. WE CAN ONLY HOPE TO SEE HER BACK ON THE COURTS ALL BETTER IN THE NEAR FUTURE >> FOR TODAY SHE RECIEVES THE MOST VALUEABLE PERSON PIN FOR HER GREAT ACHEIVEMENTS.
