Centralia Chronicle (Newspaper) - December 5, 2001, Centralia, Washington
Local / Northwest m by Hiki Xin Mcckacken press clips time passes on youngest a quiet beatle comfortable with celebrity status although i Learned of George Harrison s death on a news broadcast when i sat Down for breakfast at 5 . Friday and although i read several wire stories about Harrison that morning the reality that his life had ended did t really hit me until 11 30 . When i left for lunch got into my car and turned on the radio. The first voice i heard was Harrison s. A if not for he Sang. A babe. I could t even find the door a. I could t even see the floor. I d be sad and Blue if not for you Quot the song from Harrison s 1970 Quot All tilings Mast pass Quot album is not necessarily his Best recording. In fact he did t write it Bob Dylan did. But for some reason hearing his amplified voice brought Home the truth at 58. The youngest beatle was gone. For Harrison s family members and friends that is a loss of immense magnitude. For the millions of us who have spent hours listening to the music he generated during a career that spanned nearly 40 years Harrison a death is less personal but still deeply Felt. And for those of us to whom the beatles were once the embodiment of the 1960s youth culture perhaps it s a reminder of our own mortality. True. Harrison is not the first beatle to die that dubious Honor went to John Lennon. But Lennon s 1980 death at the hands of a crazed gunman was so insane so idiotic As to defy being a Symbol of anything other than lunacy. Harrison on the other hand died in late Middle age of cancer he attributed to a longtime cigarette habit. While that Means his death was preventable it also Means it came from natural causes. Therefore it can t help but remind those of us in a certain age group that the years Are rolling past. Instead of focusing on that though it s better that we take some time to acknowledge Harrison s contributions. Since his death countless reporters and commentators have referred to him As Quot the quiet in a sense that May be True although it seems an Odd appellation for a Man who made both his living and his reputation by producing some of the 20th Century s most memorable music. Harrison had plenty to say. And he found ways to say it a sometimes in Public statements sometimes in stings and lyrics sometimes with his guitar which he played about As Well As anyone in Rock history. Beyond that. He seemed by All accounts to have been a decent human being one of the first Rock stars to put his social conscience into practice. He accepted the benefits that accompanied his celebrity but was honest about expressing dissatisfaction with the dark Side of that equation. You would feel the same Way. I suspect if a deluded fan broke into your Home and stabbed you nearly to death. Harrison appeared to understand the importance of taking his work seriously but not always himself. His appearances on Quot saturday sight live Quot and Quot the Simp sons Quot attest to that. The other Day. A Friend mentioned to me How Nice it would have been for Harrison to have heard some of the tributes that came from around the Globe after his death. That a True but it s also Clear he was a Man who knew his place in the world appreciated it and did t really suffer for More Praise. Besides Many years ago he left us with some advice Quot do what you want to do. And go where you re going to. Think for yourself. A cause i won t be there with you a a a a Gordon Maccracken is it a news editor of the chronicle. His column appears each wednesday. He Mas he reached at h07-h234, or by a Nuvil at Gnu Cracken @ Chen ii be. C to. Mount Rainier plans to limit cars a a i l 1--1.

About 2 million people visit the Park each year primarily in july and August.

Quot basically we re just asking visitors to just do a Little More prior planning before you come to the Park and spread the Load out a Little bit More not just focus on Paradise or Sunrise on a sunny afternoon in the summertime Quot said Eric Walkinshaw mount Rainier s planning chief.
