HAROLD GIBBONS & THE TEAMSTERS, RUPERT MURDOCH TABLOIDS & TV, OBGYN TED MIMLITZ HAS A NEW PRODUCT

Scribe Gordon Burnside is writing a book on the life of iconic labor leader and Teamsters boss Harold Gibbons. That’s the word from Gibbons’ son and attorney, Larry, who dined with his partner, Polly Burtch of Webster University at Protzel’s Deli in Clayton.  Larry recalled his dad’s friendship with Jimmy Hoffa of whom Gibbons was believed to be the likely heir. “Hoffa never drank or smoked,” began Larry. “He would come to our house and enjoyed conducting a contest of push-ups, which he did with one hand. Harold and dad’s friendship with Frank Sinatra led to the Rat Pack’s performance in 1965 at Kiel Auditorium to benefit Dismas House.” (The Rat Pack consisted of Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Sinatra.) Gibbons was vice-president of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, with which he helped research and submit a plan for the desegregation of schools as well as serving as a member of the American Civil Liberties Union and the NAACP. Harold is also credited with helping to create the University of Southern Illinois-Edwardsville, where its archives contain Gibbons’ papers. He died in 1982 at the age of 72.

RUPERT MURDOCH SAGA CONTINUES

The Beacon online paper’s editor Margie Freivolgel had some interesting comments in her weekly newsletter on Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World and the scandal that’s sweeping Great Britain and the world.  She wrote, “. . .many newsrooms are similarly chasing eyeballs.  Crime and celebrities occupy a growing share of news budgets while public-spirited coverage shrinks. Like Murdoch’s British tabloids, his Fox News operation caters to a particular point of view. This blurring of lines between opinion and reporting can be lucrative, and it’s caught on.  Even the New York Times in its newly redesigned Sunday Review intermingles columnists and reported analysis”. . .Ed Martin continued his crusade as declared candidate for Congress having raised $245k in the last eight weeks.  He claimed that he has a 22 percent lead over Ann Wagner, the only declared candidate. . . The Rev. Nickolas Eugene Pinkston, who was arrested on child porn charges, is the third sexually troubled cleric who has worked at St. Ambrose Church on The Hill.  The others: Father Darrell Mitchell and Father Nicholas Volker. . .Following an almost 30-year career with the St. Louis Archdiocese, Frank Cognata has landed as chief development officer for Sisters of Mercy Health System.
