The Champagne Bliss
by Maury Feren

I don't know how many years ago I came across Pouilly Fuisse a popular French wine (high end) the first time. It wasn't until my late years in my 60's-70's- 80's that I became a Wine Sommelier.

I graduated from the Society of Wine Educators at that time. I cannot specific the exact year. I went on to teach wine courses at John Carroll's Continuing Education program at night. I taught for 13 years at the annual homecomings. Each one of these homecomings could have been a story in itself. ....

Kicking it with Maury
by Maury Feren

It's been a busy weekend. My niece and nephew came in from New York to celebrate my 100th birthday which is coming up September 5th at Park Synagogue. That will be a big bash. I will tell you more when it happens.

The Men's Club at Park is planning it so I really don't know the intimate details. From what I hear it is going to be a Hawaiian theme and casual dress. ....

Joe's Tribute to Congressman Louis Stokes
by Joseph Meissner

"Where is the kneeler?"

On this brilliant sunny day, I have come to Cleveland City Hall to pay my respects to Congressperson Louis Stokes who passed away at age 90 this past week. He is at the front of the City Hall Rotunda lying in a large elegant casket made from the best of woods.

On the left and right side of his casket are standing straight, tall, and rigid, two guards in their best uniforms. We, the public, are separated by a rope from the casket and the guards.

RIP Congressman Louis Stokes

Born on February 23, 1925 in Cleveland Ohio, Louis Stokes is one of two very famous children born to Charles and Louise Stokes. The other, of course, is his younger brother Carl, the one time Mayor of Cleveland.

Cleveland Seniors Special of the Week

ClevelandSeniors.Com Book of the Week


In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft.

Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.
