Caleb Ginsberg Raises Funds for Dana Farber Cancer Institute

Caleb Ginsberg, son of Michael Ginsberg and Sarah Ramsay of Amherst has started a foundation, Motivating Miles to raise money for the pediatric oncology unit at DanaFarber Cancer Institute in Boston. The first significant fundraising event will be the November 2 New York City Marathon. Caleb's objectives in founding Motivation Miles is to bring hope to cancer patients and their families as they battle the disease. Caleb's family recently had three members diagnosed in the same week with cancer. "Like so many, we are working towards a long term goal of ending cancer. In the short term, our hope is to help those affected deal with their diagnosis at their own pace and in their own way," wrote Caleb. Caleb is a graduate of Souhegan High School where he played baseball and Northeastern University. He is currently employed by the New York Yankees. This is the first marathon Caleb has ever run, but sees his challenge as paling in comparison to the battles being fought by those with cancer. Join Caleb's team and make a tax-deductible donation in honor of someone fighting the disease or someone who has lost his or her battle. Caleb has set a race day goal of $50,000 and needs your help to achieve it. To donate go to the Motivating Miles website:

"Finding a Fallen Hero" With Bob Korkuc

AMHERST - The Amherst Town Library invites you to join us for the third and final program in our adult evening series, "Genealogy Specials: Find Your Family at Your Library." Honoring Veteran's Day, local Amherst author Bob Korkuc shares the full story of his recently published book, Finding a Fallen Hero: The Death of a Ball Turret Gunner, on Tuesday, November 11 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Johnson Meeting Room. The book famed filmmaker Ken Burns calls a "riveting story" tells of how Bob's uncle, Anthony "Tony" Korkuc, was killed in World War II while on a Flying Fortress bombing mission over Germany in February of 1944. And as the last program in our "Genealogy Specials" series, Bob reveals how one goes about researching a war death over 50 years ago. Korkuc dug up military documents and private letters and interviewed people in both the United States and Germany. He tracked down surviving crewmembers and even found the brother of the Luftwaffe pilot who downed the B-17. By writing in detail about one lost warrior, Bob honors many. The presentation includes 100 related slides including maps, photos, and research and details how Bob's uncle trained to become an Aircrewman along with the fate of the 10men aircrew lost in combat. Author Bob Korkuc is an electrical engineer who lives in Amherst with his wife and children. This special event is free and open to the public. You can register by calling 673-2288, emailing [email protected] or by visiting our website at and selecting "Calendar of Events."

said that she loves her life and her job and would have it no other way. She has had many other jobs including a secretary, working for an antinuclear weapons movement and a bond banker. It took her 35 years to find her niche and she said she's finally happy with her job. Her 8 year old daughter, Hannah sat in the "Millionaire" audience as her on-air companion for the show. Hannah was a huge help to Marcey helping choose her mother's wardrobe for the show. Marcey said, "I have no sense of fashion and had to ask my "professional stylist" (Hannah) for help." If Marcey wins big on the "Millionaire", she will use her winnings to fix her house, get out of debt and start a college fund for her daughter. On Friday's episode Marcey used her "Ask The Audience" lifeline on the $500 question, which was: Category, `Electronics' ­ "The smile shutter" feature is one of the latest technological advancements on what kind of electronic device? A: iPod, B: Laptop computer, C: Highdef television, D: Digital camera." Marcey went with the advice of the audience and correctly guessed the answer to be "D." Marcey used her "Ask The Expert" lifeline on the $16,000 question, which was: Category, `Bon Voyage' ­ "On his trip around the globe in the classic novel "Around the World in Eighty Days," Phileas Fogg travels primarily in what direction? A: North, B: South, C: East, D: West." Marcey connected with "Expert" Nancy Christy with a face to face Skype video call. Nancy is a fellow teacher and is the only woman to ever walk away with the top prize

on the U.S. version of "Millionaire." Nancy was fairly confident that the correct answer was "C." Marcey decided to trust her advice and correctly answered the question. On Monday's episode Marcey used her "Phone A Friend" lifeline on the $25,000 question, which was: Category, `Foreign Phrases' ­ "Meaning "never seen," what French phrase refers to the odd feeling of not recognizing something that should be familiar? A: Jamais vu, B: Toujours vu, C: Encore vu, D: Souvent vu." Marcey called her friend Linda Sakellar (a high school French teacher also from Amherst), who knew that the answer was "A." Marcey went with her advice and correctly answered the question. Marcey used her "Double Dip" lifeline on the $50,000 question, which was: Category, `Famous Paintings' ­ "Which of the following is not visible in the background of Leonardo da Vinci's famous painting "Mona Lisa"? A: A road, B: A mountain, C: An aqueduct, D: A bird." Marcey guessed the answer to be "D," and was correct. Marcey's $100,000 question was: Category, `History of Film' ­ "Commissioned by Thomas Edison, the earliest surviving copyrighted motion picture depicts a man doing what? A: Firing a rifle, B: Sneezing, C: Biting an apple, D: Laughing." Out of lifelines and unsure of the answer, Marcey decided to not take a guess and walk away with the guaranteed $50,000 that she had already won. If she had guessed incorrectly on the $100,000 question, she would have fallen back to $50,000 in winnings. The correct answer was "B."
