HISTORY OF THE OLD AMERICANA PHOTOS
This image comes from the George Grantham Bain Collection which represents one of America's earliest news picture agencies. The collection richly documents sports events, theater, celebrities, crime, strikes, disasters, political activities including the woman suffrage campaign, conventions and public celebrations. The photographs Bain produced and gathered for distribution through his news service were worldwide in their coverage, but there was a special emphasis on life in New York City. The bulk of the collection dates from the 1900s to the mid-1920s, but scattered images can be found as early as the 1860s and as late as the 1930s. (Library of Congress)
Ron Fassett, Jr.
Published: Thursday, September 6, 2007 11:53 PM CDT Members of the Athens Township Fire Department and family of Ron Fassett, Jr. follow behind Fassett's casket Thursday as the funeral procession travels to the Tioga Point Cemetery from the fire hall. Photo by Lisa R.Howeler ATHENS - The day I met Ron Fassett, Jr. I was feeling sorry for myself. I was worried about family issues, money, the health of my son - all fairly minor issues I had enlarged into major issues. A friend of Ron's had called the newspaper to tell us about a fundraiser being held to help Ron, who was heading to Chicago for a rare quintuple bypass. The friend asked if we would call Ron and talk to him about it. Money was needed to help Ron and his family travel to Chicago. Being the designated feature writer at the newspaper, apparently, I was asked to call Ron. We agreed to meet the next day at the fire hall. As soon as Ron entered the fire hall I recognized him from the many fire scenes and motor vehicle accidents I had been at for the paper. I had seen him but had never actually met him. He admitted to me that he didn't like asking the public for help. I could tell by the way he looked nervous and solemn at the same time that he meant it. I could also tell he was a proud man, and I hoped I could make it clear in the story he wasn't begging for help. To him help didn't have to come in the form of money - it could also come from prayers. As the conversation continued I started to feel as if I'd known Ron for years instead of having officially met him that day. Newspaper editors like photographs with their stories, so I asked Ron if he would be willing to pose for one. Like me he wasn't a big fan of being in front of the camera, but he agreed, and we decided in front of the new fire truck would be a good place for him to sit. Earlier he had told me about some of the firefighters stopping by his house and giving him a ride in the truck when he had first found out about his heart problems. He sat on the front of the truck, the sun hit the new red paint and his smile. It was there he told me he had a lot to live for, how much he cared for his family, and how much he trusted God to keep him safe. I started to feel guilty for having had a pity party for myself earlier in the day and realized that if someone who was facing the challenges Ron was could have a positve attitude about life, then I could too. Ron left for Chicago and pulled through his surgery fairly well, but the day after he came home and the day after his mother Roberta called to tell me he seemed to be doing well, Ron passed away. When my husband received the call he told me with shock in his voice, and it took him several moments to be able to talk again. We both stared at each other in shock. Part of me felt angry at God because I couldn't understand why someone who had believed God would pull him through the surgery was now gone from this earth, pulled away from his family. It would take words from Captain Lenny Wacenske of the Salvation Army at Ron's funeral to help me understand that God has a plan, a sovereign plan, for all of us. We may not understand that plan, but it was created for us out of love, and when God is ready, or maybe more accurate, when we are ready, He will reveal it to us. Sitting in a grey metal chair at the Athens Township Fire Hall Thursday I felt a little out of place. I wasn't a relative of Ron's. I couldn't even call myself a friend. I had only had one real conversation with him. To the right of me were Ron's wife and two children, his parents, his brother, and other family members. Behind me there were several rows of uniformed firefighters and emergency responders. In front of me was Captain Lenny and Linda Rogers, a member of the fire department and sister of the late Jim King, who had been the fire chief for the department. Linda had officiated her brother's funeral only two years earlier. He had been a year younger than Ron at the time of his death, 44. To the right of Captain Lenny and Linda was a casket adorned with flowers and a Yankees banner and flanked by two uniformed firefighters standing at attention. Looking at my surroundings I can't say I felt any more like I belonged, but as the service began I realized I belonged simply by having met Ron. He had touched my life, not the way he had touched his wife's and his children's, or his parents' and brother's, or those he had fought fires with, but he had touched it enough to make me think twice about wallowing in my own misery. He had touched my life enough to make me look at the good instead of the bad. Ron's physical challenges didn't stop him from doing what he wanted, whether it was serving the public or spending time with his friends and family. During the funeral service Linda spoke about Ron's courage to not only live life, but to live it to the fullest. She told those in attendance that when Ron came up against one of his challenges he didn't throw up his hands and give up
We'll take a cup o' kindness yet
Then there was the New Year's Eve party, a throng of people gladdening the house I’d so sadly come by. It was strange to see people in the house, I thought, having lived there a half year alone. As I stood in the doorway accepting gifts and greetings, I became unsure of my own place in time. So little had changed since June, when I'd stood in the same doorway extending a hand, kissing a cheek in greeting, accepting a condolence. The last time this many people were in the house was after my parents' funeral. But that had been summer, and the open windows had washed the mourners with cool evening breezes scented with wild flowers and fresh-cut lawns. Then, laughter had been a shield against tears. Had that changed in these six months? I honestly didn't know as one eruption of mirth after another swept over the assembled host. Tonight, the house shut the revelers in, wombed them against the frozen air that groped at the siding and padded by the window panes seeking a crack, a joint, any way in. Was tonight's jovial mood proof of progress, or just an example of how easily we can be induced into forgetfulness? The ghosts of the ancestors walk among us, I thought, and how little notice we take of them. Several times I thought I heard my father's voice or my mother's laugh in the party sounds, and looking up expecting to see them found only neighbors, strangers, dates. Perhaps I alone could hear. I thought of Freda living alone in her parents' house now, sleeping in her old bedroom. The thought of her woman's body surrounded by the stuffed animals and other trappings of childhood disturbed me. Did she see and hear the same things? Did she ever open a drawer to find one of her mother's earrings or, turning a corner, suddenly smell her father's pipe? Had she spent any more evenings listening to Stan Kenton in the darkened family room? Steve and Martha cruised the rooms, simultaneously partying and policing little Chris and Mary Martha: the first year the kids would be allowed to stay up. Another milestone. On one trip through the kitchen, Martha drew close and took my hand for a moment, her sympathetic eyes searching mine. Suddenly she was Siobhan, and I barely choked back a sob that stung at my eyes and swelled painfully in my throat. I summoned a smile from somewhere and forced it to my face. I could tell she saw the pain that banged against the back of my grin. Her eyes softened, her lips pursed briefly before squeezing my hand a bit harder. A child’s squeal from the family room drew her attention. Gone. She was gone. The lump hung in my throat at the blunt recognition of time lost and opportunity flown. Late into the evening, as the final minutes of the year ticked away, a tall woman stood alone on the patio playing Auld Lang Syne on a trombone, the colors of the aurora borealis glinting in the brass of her instrument, her figure silhouetted against the starlit blue-white of a new snowfall. She turned only slightly as a swath of light spilled from the door and a shadow emerged from the house. I approached slowly, my footsteps crunching on the frost-covered bricks. "You coming in?" I asked her profile, my breath clouding in the cold, hands thrust deep into my pockets. The cold reached into my sweater and knotted my spine in a dozen places. "It's almost midnight." The song stopped mid-measure, unresolved, subdominant notes echoing into the distance. Seconds passed. I counted my breaths in the frigid air as I waited for a response. Beneath our feet the world rolled on in its celestial groove toward the midnight hour. A stiff breeze came up, sending sheets of fine snow sliding off the roof, the tiny crystals swirling into spirals on their way to the ground. The clockwork heavens moved minutely within their courses, the stars twinkling brightly in the cold, clear air. "I'll be in," Freda replied finally. She talked out of the side of her mouth, never fully taking her lips from the mouthpiece. "Mom and Dad used to dance to this song every New Year's," she said after a minute, her eyes straight ahead, focused on something far away. "I remember how they moved together. Then Dad would... would give me a sip of his Scotch and take me in his arms and swing me around like we were dancing. I remember the warmth in me... and from him." She paused, swallowing hard. "I s'pose I've spent my life making mistakes because of that memory. I... I guess I wanted to be like them on New Year's Eve." She stopped. In the starlight I could see her eyes were moist, her nose red, but whether from the recollection or cold, I couldn't tell. It had been a tough year for us all, I thought. I took a step toward her, but the north wind swept down from Canada and caught my back, an icy bayonet stabbing through me. I started shaking violently, my teeth chattered, a dull ache ratcheted my spine. Now it was nature that kept me from her. Freda resumed the good old song, her disconsola
