What’s in a name?

Well, for the fourth

annual Collaborative

Women’s Conference, there’s

more to it than meets the eye.

The free conference will be

held Oct. 21 at Heartland Worship


in Paducah.

Although the

name seems

to cater to

women, the

conference is

open to men

and youth, as

well. The Rev.

Bernice Belt,


overseer and

associate minister at Washington

Street Baptist Church, promises

entertainment to captivate any

audience. The program will take

place in a gospel gala format.

“For our event, that means we

will have multiple genres through

which the Gospel will be provided,”

Belt said.

The media include gospel

music, rap, dance and poetry.

Performers include psalmist

Michelle Prather, Christian bands

Steel Dove and Plan Z, the children’s

choir of Hopewell Missionary

Baptist Church of Carbondale,

Ill., Christian rapper Raimundo

“BrotherPray” Sumner, vocalists

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Hands

clenched around a green rope

hanging from the ceiling, a knot

the size of a softball at its end,

Father Tim Sullivan of St. Patrick’s

Catholic Church paused

briefl y before pulling down on a

recent Sunday.

“The trick on this thing is you

really have to give it a good pull,”

he said, tightening his grip.

Two rhythmic tugs later, a sonorous

chime echoed from the

church’s bell four stories above,

one of its fi rst tolls in 25 years

after it -- and the tower it occupies

-- underwent repairs and

renovations in June.

Members of Memphis Boy

Scout Troop 34 revived the

sleeping bell as part of 14-yearold

Johnny Braza’s Eagle Scout

project, a three-day undertaking

that included installing hard-

west connect. And the theme?

The scouts also built wooden

A raffl e was held after the project’s

completion to choose which

member of St. Patrick’s congregation

would be the fi rst to ring the

bell, a “very creative” idea that

came from Braza, said St. Patrick’s

pastoral assistant Rosaleen


“It was exciting that day,” Sullivan

said. “I think if we use it consistently

and ring the bell before

mass, it’ll become part of our process.

woods ... so, it’s important to us.”

loved one.

It was remarkable to hear

each child who took the

podium during the 9/11 Memorial

dedication ceremony

or who was interviewed

during the hours of TV

coverage around the 10th

anniversary. They spoke

with such maturity, depth,

and sincerity. Frequently,

a young boy would say he

hoped his father was proud

of him or a young girl would

say she missed and loved

her mother.

It was clear that these

children haven’t lived

typical lives. They may play

soccer, slog through math

tests, or watch cartoons,

but they carry with them a

knowledge that life doesn’t

go as planned. They grew

up in a world that was the

very defi nition of betrayal.

According to Merriam-

Webster, that defi nition is:

“To lead astray, to deliver

to an enemy by treachery,

to fail or desert especially in

time of need.”

The faces of the 9/11

perpetrators could be

placed next to those words.

the circumstances for the

families. They had forced

on them circumstances that

left them revealing to their

child, tragically but unintentionally,

how cruel life

could be. No one wanted to

let that terrible secret slip,

but it did.

Still, the children of 9/11

have the bearing of people

a generation or two older.

As we watched them on TV,

they were often composed

while others were crumbling.

They were somber

while others were sobbing.

They were gracious while

others were growling.

They know what it is like

to feel their world literally

fall apart around them.

They know how it feels to

see an empty spot at the

table that will never be

like to lose the embodiment

of love on a bright, sunny

know what it is like to go

Betrayal comes in many

forms. Every artist or architect

of betrayal draws it

their own way. Every victim

who sees the image of those

scars embedded in their life

experience it their own way.

But it is possible to turn

those scars into sculpture, to

fashion art out of the wreckage.

It is likely done in one’s

own time and one’s own

way, but it is possible to fi nd

beauty buried in the soul of

the betrayed.

Many of the children

of 9/11 have likely been

given the necessary tools

for fi nding their way out

of history’s most hideous

hate crime. They’ve been

prodded to discover the

beautiful world beyond

their recovery. Most have

probably been offered grief

counseling and therapy.

Many have been invited

to summer camps for kids

who lost various family

members in 9/11. They’ve

been given opportunities

to travel or study abroad.

their lost loved ones alone,

McClatchy-Tribune News Service


In ornate sanctuaries and

simple chapels, with soaring

anthems and moments

of silence, worshipers

across New Jersey and the

country last weekend remembered

the dead, consoled

the living and sought

to fi nd meaning in the unfathomable

losses of a decade


Many Christians were in

church at 8:46, 9:03, 9:37

and 10:03 a.m. — the times

when planes hit the towers

of the World Trade Center,

the Pentagon and the

ground in Shanksville, Pa.,

10 years ago.

“I just felt it was the right

thing to do, to go to church

and bring my daughter today.

I felt it was the right

place to be,” said Christine

Mainwald of Wyckoff’s

Grace United Methodist

Church, who wore a T-shirt

in lasting memory” of a

lost fi refi ghter.

At churches and synagogues,

the brilliant sunlight

of late summer fi ltered

through stained glass,

rather than the ashy haze of

that day 10 years ago. The

sounds were of tolling bells

and voices raised in song,

rather than fi re alarms and

emergency sirens.

The time-hallowed rituals

of mourning played out

in ceremonies across the

land, but in North Jersey

they carried added weight,

BELL: Tower

rings loudly again


Zackary Tenorio, 6, won

the raffl e to ring the bell, a

feat which he and his dad repeated

this Sunday.

A professional cleaning

team assisted the scouts in

some of the clean-up efforts,

removing the potentially

contaminated remnants of

winged, longtime residents

of the seven-story tower: pigeons.

“There were pigeon carcasses

all over the fl oor,”

Braza said. “It smelled really

bad ... pigeon droppings

were at least an inch high on

every part of the fl oor.”

Now, pigeons evicted, the

smell of sawdust lingers in

the tower from newly built

wooden ladders on each

fl oor.

Some St. Patrick’s parishioners

also helped with the

renovations, a donation of

time and sweat that refl ected

the “extremely grateful” reception

the scouts received

for their work, Braza said.

“It was really a blessing to

the church that (the scouts)

came by, and I think the

scouts enjoyed it,” Sullivan

said. “I think the idea behind

these projects is that

you have to leave something

behind: a gift to the community

or the church, or something.

So, I think for them,

that bell tower’s someplace

that for years to come, they

can go up and ring the bell.”

Braza and his family recently

moved from East

Memphis to New York City,

where he plans to join another

Boy Scout Troop.

But before leaving, Braza

said one gesture gave his

project a “sense of completion.”

He rang the bell.

“It sounded like glory,” he

Fred Jubitz told members

of West Side Presbyterian

Church in Ridgewood

on Sunday of his

terrifi ed fl ight from the

43rd fl oor of the American

Express tower across

the street from the World

Trade Center.

Every second of the

day is etched in memory,

he said. “It shook my

foundation, changed my

life, made me reorder

values important to me.”

The Sunday after

the attacks, he went to

church for the fi rst time

since his wedding. “All

the emotions of the week

came pouring out,” he

said. He subsequently

joined West Side, calling

it “one of the best decisions

of my life.”

Forgiveness was the

theme of two readings

that came up in the Sunday

rotation used by

many Christian churches,

providing a challenge

to homilists.

The readings “call for

forgiveness to be a major

part of our lives,” said

Deacon James Mueller

of St. Catharine R.C.

Church in Glen Rock,

which also lost many parishioners.

To actually

work together, we have

to forgive each other and

fi nd common ground.”

Banjo player

Mainer dies

Associated Press

DETROIT — Wade Mainer,

a country music pioneer

who is credited with inventing

the two-fi nger banjo

picking style that paved the

way for the Bluegrass era,

has died. He was 104.

Mainer died Monday at

his home in Flint Township,

about 60 miles northwest

of Detroit, according to the

funeral home where his service

was to be held.

He was a member of

late brother J.E. Mainer’s

Mountaineers, one of the

most popular sibling duos

of the 1930s. He made recordings

for all the major

labels of the day, including

RCA in 1935, and invented

a two-fi nger banjo picking

style that paved the way for

the bluegrass era.

“Wade Mainer is the last

of the old guard from the

‘20s and ‘30s to pass on.

Mainer’s Mountaineers was

a huge group during that

time. They infl uenced the

Monroe Brothers, The Delmore

Brothers, The Stanley

Brothers, Flatt and Scruggs,

Reno and Smiley and countless

other music groups

from the South,” country

and bluegrass artist Ricky

Skaggs said in an email

Wednesday to The Associated

Press. “My dad loved

them as well so I heard lots

of Mainer’s Mountaineers

in my house, too.”

John Ramble, senior historian

of the Country Music

Hall of Fame and Museum

in Nashville, Tenn., said

Mainer’s two-fi nger style

helped make the banjo more

prominent in old-time, or

early country music. Using

two fi ngers, as opposed to

the downward strumming

motion of the “claw hammer”

style, allowed him to

be more melodic.

Born near Asheville, N.C.,

Mainer got his musical start

in North Carolina’s mountains

and later rediscovered

it in an industrial Michigan

city. Concerned that country

music was dying, he left

the stage and the South in

the early 1950s and moved

to Flint, Mich., to work for

General Motors. He played

only in church but eventually

stopped altogether,

putting the banjo under his

bed for four years.

Mainer returned to music

after another musician

convinced the born-again

Christian he could use his

talents to honor God. He

told The Associated Press

in 1991 that he got back on

the circuit in 1970s after

country-western star Tex

Ritter bumped into one of

Mainer’s sons.

“Ritter said, ‘He’s been

dead for 15 years, ain’t he?”

Mainer said. “A lot of people

thought I was dead.”

won belated recognition

for his contribution

for the fi rst ascent to the

and other workers were

shaken by the accident

in the nation’s secondbiggest

gambling market

after Las Vegas.

“It’s a shame what happened,”

said Malinowski,

from Turnersville. “This

is part of the job.”

The ocean-themed casino

will have 1,100 hotel

rooms and employ

about 5,500 people when

it opens May 15. It is 710

feet tall, making it the second-tallest

building in the

state after the Goldman

Sachs building in Jersey


The lightning strike was

only the latest tragedy

to befall the $2.4 billion

project. In July 2008, a

plane carrying three executives

to a meeting

with a glass manufacturer

crashed in bad weather

at a small airport in Minnesota,

killing all eight

people on board. By January

2009, the project was

virtually out of money. It

laid off 400 workers and

halted construction on

everything but the exterior

until new funding was

lined up earlier this year.

Even the wind has targeted

Revel, toppling a

construction crane off its

roof. And when welders

were dismantling what

was left of the crane, part

of the building caught

fi re, but it was quickly extinguished.

Italian climber Bonatti dies at 81

Bonatti was involved in

numerous famous climbs

in the 1950s and 60s,

but the controversy with

fellow climbers Achille

Compagnoni and Lino

Lacedelli over the ascent

up Pakistan’s K-2 in 1954

went on for years. It wasn’t

until 2008 that the Italian

I told my husband his

now he’s furious with me.

He thinks I’m taking Thad’s

her fi rst boyfriend, and she

needs to know how to break

up with someone — how to

express her feelings, say

it’s over, hang up a phone

and not answer annoying

texts or emails. Thad is not

a violent kid. He’s just hoping

my daughter will reconsider.

Now my younger

children are afraid they will

have to call the cops if he

comes over.

— Want My Daughter

To Be a Strong Woman.

Dear Want: Yes. We

understand his desire

to protect his daughter,

but he should not be

swooping in to handle

the unpleasant parts

of her love life. It is her

responsibility to tell

Thad that it’s over, in

person, and with conviction.

The choice to

block his calls belongs

to her. Of course, there

is the very rare ex-boyfriend

who becomes a

stalker and potentially

dangerous. If your

daughter believes the

situation could get violent,

she should not see

Thad without others

present. Daddy should

back off and let her

grow up. If she needs

his help, she will ask

for it.

How to consolidate

music efficiently


McClathcy-Tribune News Service


: The music fi les on my Windows 7 PC are stored in

three different folders, and this makes it diffi cult to

fi nd a fi le to include as an attachment in an e-mail. One

fi le has 222 songs, one has fi ve and another has nine.

How do I consolidate all the songs in one place? I use

iTunes almost exclusively, but also have Windows Media



: You can put all your songs in a single directory, or

folder, that will be used by iTunes.

Because you have 222 songs in one folder, it would be

easiest to consolidate the other 14 songs into that folder.

Why? When you shift a song to a different fi le folder, you

change its address on the hard disk and iTunes can’t fi nd

it. That means you’ll need to add each song’s new location

to iTunes — and it will be easier to do that 14 times than

222 times.

The best consolidation method is to copy the 14 song

fi les from their existing folders, then paste them into the

222-song folder. This leaves copies of the songs at their

original locations so that Windows Media Player can still

fi nd them.

Then, in iTunes, go to File and click “add fi le to library.”

Using the resulting directory, highlight your consolidated

song folder. To add the 14 songs you just transferred to

the folder to iTunes, one at a time, highlight the song and

click “open” at the bottom of the menu.

Now you need to weed out the duplicate song listings in

iTunes, which will now show that you have two copies of

the 14 songs, one in the old folder and one in the consolidated


To fi nd out which of the two song copies you want to

delete, right-click one of them in iTunes, then click “get

info” from the resulting menu. Look at the “where” listing

at the bottom of the info box to see which folder the song

is in, and delete the one at the old location. To eliminate a

song from iTunes, right click it and choose “delete,” then

click “remove.”


: I can’t get any operating system updates for Windows

Vista. This feature worked when I fi rst got the

software, then stopped. This seems to be a common problem,

but there’s not a solution that works for everyone.

Any ideas?


: Microsoft acknowledges that many people have

had trouble updating Windows Vista, and it provides

a way to fi x the problem at http://www.tinyurl.

com/ls6hhr. This solution was updated June 29, which

probably makes it more current than other solutions you

read about.

You can make the adjustment yourself if you’re comfortable

modifying the Windows registry, a task that has

risks for your PC if you make a mistake. Or click the website’s

“fi x it” button, and the change will be made automatically.

Aiming for the right note


McClatchy-Tribune News Service


Dan Massoth played

his trumpet along with

a recording of the U.S.

Marine Band, the musical

notes on his computer

screen turned green

or red to show whether

they were played correctly.

If Massoth were a public

school music student

instead of a professional

musician, the computer

software also would have

given him a grade for his

performance of “Second

Suite in F for Military

Band” by Gustav Holst.

And the recording would

have been submitted online

to his teacher for

further review.

But because he’s a senior

product manager

at Eden Prairie, Minn.,

software fi rm MakeMusic

Inc., Massoth was

deliberately hitting a few

sour notes to show how

the fi rm’s software is

used in public school.

“It’s fun for students

because it’s technology,”

said MakeMusic’s new

CEO, Karen van Lith,

who arrived in June.

“You connect your instrument

to the computer

and play a piece until

you get it right. And listening

to a professional

accompaniment while

you play is not like listening

to the other fi fthgraders

in the band.”

Music teachers said

they see, and hear, how

the technology appeals

to young musicians.

Students are playing

better, and they don’t

even know it,” said Andy

Schmidt, band director

at Highview Middle

School in New Brighton,

The software also helps

music teachers, who can

assign students to practice

a piece of music, then review

what the student considers

to be his or her best


“I’m able to hold kids

to higher standards based

on the software because I

can hear them individually,”

said David Elmhirst,

band director at Wayzata

(Minn.) High School.

“That individual listening

is hard to do in a class

with 60 or 70 kids because

it takes half the class period.”

“We’re the teacher’s

helper,” said van Lith,

herself a long-ago high

school trumpet player in

Monticello, Minn. “But we

don’t intend to replace the


MakeMusic has two

kinds of software, both

available for Apple Macintosh

and Windows PC

computers. The SmartMusic

software is sold by subscription

to students ($36 a

year on average) and their

music instructors ($140

a year.) The Finale music

notation software, used to

write or arrange music, is

licensed to schools. Introduced

20 years ago, it’s the

company’s most profi table


But while schools like

the software, 110-employ-

ee MakeMusic hasn’t been

singing a happy tune. The

fi rm has had four CEOs

in fi ve years, a period of

growing revenue but uneven

profi ts. Last year the

company earned $1 million,

down 71 percent, on

revenue of $17.2 million,

up 4 percent.

“The company thought it

was a music company, and

it didn’t realize it was a

technology company,” van

Lith said. “The founder

thought everyone needed

to be a musician. But it is

fi rst and foremost a technology

company, and

there are many positions

where being a musician is

not relevant.”

Even today, about threefourths

of the employees

are professional musicians,

Massoth said.

The turnover in management

caused the latest release

of the Finale software

to be delayed from early

this summer to fall, van

Lith said.

“You can’t underestimate

the impact of leadership

changes,” she said.

“During the development

of this version of the

software, the company

switched two CEOs, a chief

technology offi cer, and

the vice president and the

manager of engineering.

So, during my fi rst week

here we hammered out

a new software schedule

plan, and we’ve been on

track every since.”

While software im-

provements will continue,

van Lith sees another use

for the software: helping

schools justify music program


“The dream of many

passionate MakeMusic

employees is to save music

education as schools

struggle and budgets are

cut,” van Lith said. “Our

software is an objective,

quantifi able way to measure

student practice.”

Music programs, like

other school subjects, face

increasing pressure to

measure student success,

she said.

“Schools, doctors and

hospitals are all being held

to account for what they

spend, and they have to

be able to show outcomes

— something the for-profi t

business world has had to

do for a long time,” van

Lith said. “By being able

to track, report and assess

competence levels of music

students, we can prove

the worth of music education

in a quantifi able way.”

That’s already beginning

to happen at Wayzata High


“We’re being asked by

administrators and the

school board to show that

what we are doing with

music students is academic,”

Elmhirst said. The

MakeMusic product helps

“show student achievement

through software.

We grade kids based on

what they do, just like a

math teacher would.”
