ESSAYIST AND NOVELIST WILFRID SHEED DIES BOSTON (AP) — Novelist and essayist Wilfrid Sheed, the English-born American satirical writer known for tackling jazz, baseball, and journalism, died Wednesday in Great Barrington, Mass., his stepdaughter said. He was 80 years old. The cause was an infection called urosepsis, said stepdaughter Phoebe Alexis Unger-er. She said her stepfather also had long suffered from polio and more recently cancer. Bom in London on Dec. 27, 1930, to prominent Catholic publishers, Sheed was the author of a number of books, including "A Middle Class Education," "Square's Progress," and "People Will Always Be Kind." He often wrote about a broad range of subjects from characters wrestling with their Roman Catholic beliefs to his own battles with disease and addiction in his memoir, "In Love With Daylight: A Memory of Recovery." His last book, "The House That George Built: With a Little Help From Irving, Cole and a Crew of About Fifty," was published in 2007 and was billed as a history of American popular music. Ungerer said Sheed moved from a Long Island nursing home to one in Great Barrington around 10 days ago. Two dinners will gauge need for homelessness services in county By J. Louise Larson The Herald-Zeitung There are hundreds of homeless living in Comal County. With the Point In Time homeless count, the Comal County Homeless Coalition wants to know exactly how many homeless individuals and families there are, and what the CCHC can do to help. So the CCHC is inviting them to dinner. The Lights of 1 lope Dinner will be held Thursday, Jan. 27, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Two gatherings, held simultaneously at the West-side Community Center in New Braunfels and the CRRC in Canyon Lake, will provide food, free medical screenings, counseling referrals, haircuts, and information about local area services and resources for homeless individuals and families in need. Any individual or family experiencing homelessness is welcome to attend this free event. No RSVP is needed. Transportation can be provided to and from either site; call Kellie at (830) 629-6571 ext. 202 today to secure pick-up. Alice Jewell of McKenna Legacy Foundation wants to get the word out about the dinner to the Comal County homeless community. It’s important, she said. “This is something that’s done by a lot of communities across the country. It’s an opportunity to do two THE LIGHTS OF HOPE DINNER When: 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 27 Where: Two gatherings, held simultaneously at the Westside Community Center in New Braunfels and the CRRC in Canyon Lake things. You get a good view of the types of people experiencing homelessness in this area, and of what kinds of resources you can provide to individuals and families to help them get out of their situation,” she said. “And secondly, it gives the community an opportunity to provide resources to individuals and families to meet their immediate needs,” Jewell said. During the dinner, members of the Comal County Homeless Coalition will be on hand to learn more about factors affecting the homeless in Comal County through a survey conducted in partnership with the Texas Homeless Network. Many communities conduct a Point-In-Time Count of homeless individuals in their area every January to determine the size and scope of the homelessness problem at the local level. “ We re asking the community for help with the Point In Time count and dinner,” Jewell said. Past counts in Comal County revealed between 300 and 400 adults and children experience homelessness each year. “Currently, there is no local Giffords able to stand as she goes for rehab TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Less than two weeks after surviving a bullet through die brain, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords stood up and looked out the window of her hos-pital room Wednesday as she prepares to move to Houston to begin an arduous journey of intensive mental and physical rehabilitation. Hospital spokeswoman Janet Stark said Giffords was able to stand on her feet with assistance from medical staff Wednesday in another significant milestone in her recovery. The next step is extensive rehabilitation in which she will have to relearn how to think and plan. It's unclear if she is able to speak or how well she can see. And while she is moving both arms and legs, it's uncertain how much strength she has on her right side. Her swift transition from an intensive care unit to a rehab center is based on the latest research, which shows the sooner rehab starts, the better patients recover. Giffords' family hopes to move the Arizona congresswoman on Friday to TIRR Memorial Hermann hospital in Houston, where her husband lives and works as an astronaut. The exact day of the move will depend on her health. "I am extremely hopeful at the signs of recovery that my wife has made since the shooting," Mark Kelly said in a statement released by Giffords' congressional office. The staff at University Medical Center in Tucson "has stabilized her to the point of being ready to move to the rehabilitation phase." Dr. John Holcomb, retired Army colonel and a trauma surgeon at the Houston hospital, praised the care she received in Tucson and said Giffords would "move quickly toward a tailored and comprehensive rehab plan." Giffords was shot in the forehead Jan. 8 while meet ing with constituents outside a grocery store in Tucson. She remains in serious condition. Her recovery has amazed her family and impressed her doctors, who say she is improving every day. Over the weekend, Giffords was weaned off the ventilator and had her breathing tube replaced with a tracheotomy tube in her windpipe. Doctors also inserted a feeding tube to boost her calorie intake and repaired her right eye socket, which was damaged by the bullet. Since being taken off sedation, Giffords has been alert and opening her eyes more often. She also started rigorous physical therapy, dangling her legs over her bedside to exercise her muscles and sitting in a chair for periods at a time. Kelly told ABC in an interview that she gave him a neck rub. Still, the extent of her injuries and long-term prognosis won't be known for some time. The gunman shot 18 other people, killing six and wounding 12. All survivors have been released from hospitals, and doctors say the hospital is now no longer the best place for Giffords.

Clearly, the people are here. We have a lack of services to provide for their needs. This exercise will determine the scope of the families needing help in our community and what we can do to help them,” she said. "We do a survey with a representative from every family. It goes through lots of things — How long have they been homeless? What was the trigger for their homelessness? We want to determine the causes for homelessness and address that,” Jewell said. The Comal County Homeless Coalition is a partnership formed by NBISD, OSD, NB Housing Authority, NB Police Department, Communities in Schools, Family Life Center, Salvation Army, NB Christian Ministries, Crisis Center of Comal County, Habitat for Humanity, Connections Individual and Family Services, Community Council of South Central Texas, CRRC of Canyon Lake, TIPHER, McKenna, and concerned business owners and citizens. While New Braunfels doesn’t have an organization that works specifically with and for the homeless, other cities do, said Jewell, citing cities that partner with the Texas Homeless Network, including Brenham, Tyler, McAllen and others. "Homeless services don’t just need to be provided in urban areas," Jewell said. "These homeless people are people who have lived in our community for years. I heir kids have gone to our schools; they have shopped at our grocery stores. Some event has caused them to not be able to pay their rent anymore, and it is our duty to help the homeless in our community," she said. “This is a very important topic to me. We haven’t done what we need to do to address this portion of our population." she said. Jewell said the coalition is brainstorming ideas about generating a nonprofit organization that could specifically address and target the needs of Comal County homeless. Local nonprofit organizations such as the Salvation Army, Family Life Center, Connections and the Crisis Center can provide vital but limited relief for homeless families. “Right now, we have a number of nonprofit organizations in town where a portion of their mission might affect the homeless, but nobody who’s completely focused on it,” she said, describing the issue as labor-intensive “because basically you’re trying to turn someone’s life around.” Spokesman: Passport delays Duvalier s exit from Haiti PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — A spokesman for lean-Claude Duvalier says the former Haitian dictator intends to leave Haiti when he gets a new passport but cannot be forced to leave his homeland against his will. Yves Germain Joseph says the ex-dictator known as "Baby Doc" had been scheduled to leave Thursday. But Joseph said Duvalier asked the Foreign Ministry to issue him a new passport and that has delayed his departure. He didn't know how long that would take but said Duvalier is in no rush. He spoke to reporters late Wednesday at (he hotel where Duvalier has been ensconced since his surprise return. Duvalier was forced into exile in 1986 following a popular uprising to a government widely seen as brutal and corrupt. Controversial Fla. pastor barred from U.K. LONDON (AP) — A U.S. pastor who had threatened to burn a Quran on an anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks has been barred from visiting Britain, its government said Wednesday. Florida pastor Terry Jones had planned to address a right-wing group, England is Ours, and join it for meetings and demonstrations from Feb. 9 to Feb. 16. Stand Up America, a Florida-based group affiliated with Jones, said he was going to speak out against what the group called radical elements of Islam. It said his visit to Britain was to be part of a European tour. Britain's Home Office said that Jones has been "excluded from the U.K." because the British government opposes extremism in all its forms. "Numerous comments made by Pastor Jones are evidence of his unacceptable behavior," it said in a statement. CONGRATULATIONS!! on serving Comal County for 30 Years and going!
