Vanessa on Valentine’s Day
The most successful Miss America in the entertainment world, Vanessa Williams....
Nina Davaluri, didn’t have to wait for the postman to deliver the poison pen letters that spewed their hatred over being the first Indian-American woman to be crowned Miss America.
.....About a week after Davuluri won the title, Miss America CEO Sam Haskell was showing his new queen the sites in Manhattan. One of their stops was the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, where Williams, Haskell’s friend and former William Morris Agency client, was starring in the Broadway play The Trip to Bountiful.
Haskell took Davuluri backstage to meet Williams. Though separated in age by 26 years — at 24, Davuluri is two years younger than Williams’ oldest daughter — the two women hit it off immediately.
“I got a chance to ... talk to her for a bit and just support her and remind her that she has had an amazing accomplishment and to enjoy her year,” Williams tells Atlantic City Weekly during a recent phone chat. “And she was in great shape anyway. She wasn’t frazzled, she didn’t take things personally and she knows that that’s part of being out there and being famous, and she was willing and able to take the heat. And I think she’s done an amazing job and she’s setting a great example.” read more

Ken Haskell is a second-
generation New York City
firefighter and an expert in rescue
techniques. Haskell lost two
brothers - also firefighters- in the
World Trade Center on Sept. 11.
'I Was Looking For My Two Brothers.' September 7, 2011
Ken Haskell, a second-generation firefighter, was off-duty and planning to work on some home reconstruction projects on Sept. 11, 2001.
His brothers Timmy and Tom, also New York City firefighters, were both working that day. Both Timmy and Tom went to the World Trade
Center and died when the towers collapsed.
Ken arrived at Ground Zero shortly after the North and South towers fell. He spent the next two months working at the Ground Zero site,
sifting through the rubble and trying to find the remains of people who had been trapped in the towers. His brother Tim's body was
recovered while Ken was on-site; Tom's body has never been found.
Haskell's memories of Sept. 11 are collected in Dennis Smith's A Decade of Hope: Stories of Grief and Endurance from 9/11 Families and
Friends. Haskell, along with Smith and New York City Fire Department battalion chief Jay Jonas, who was inside the North Tower when it
collapsed, join Fresh Air's Terry Gross for a discussion about their memories of Sept. 11, and how their lives have changed since the

Well-wishers throw leeks to mark end of firefighters' epic Atlantic row
John Haskell and Jamie Windsor battled exhaustion, salt sores and 20ft waves in a rowing boat from the
Canaries to Barbados. The dynamic duo, from South Wales, were greeted by scores of well-wishers throwing
leeks after an almost record-breaking 45 days, 19 hours and 21 minutes.
They came fourth in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge and are hoping to raise £100,000 for Breast Cancer
Care, Help for Heroes, WRVS and the Fire Service Fund. Mr Haskell, 44, said of the challenge: “We’re both grown
men, we’re both firefighters and we’ve done some pretty extreme stuff but the pair of us were terrified and we could

BREATHING NEW LIFE INTO OLD HOUSE
RESTORATION REVIVES EARLY 1700S HOME
The Old Haskell House, in one form or another, has sat perched on Lincoln Street, just off Essex Avenue or
Route 133, since long before Route 133 even existed.
But the house that dates to about 50 years before America declared its independence is not only still standing;
it’s undergoing a major restoration, with a preservation specialist and a contractor repairing the house, paying
close attention to details from siding to nails.
An Illinois family, with a passion for early 18th century homes, bought the house last April, intending to repair
and preserve the home originally built by William Haskell in the early 1700s, then renovated in 1920 with
But, Howard Grote came across more surprises than just the expected hidden gems, like newspapers dating
back to the “Roaring Twenties” that had been stuffed into wall cracks, and “nogging,” a layer of bricks and
mortar set between the north wall of the original house and the addition, that had acted as insulation from
harsh north winds before the 1920s add on.
”Mr. Grote found out it was built by his tenth great grandfather,” said Prudence Fish, a local expert on historic
...Inside, the team has discovered countless details that reveal a house that existed long ago...
...“We try to leave it as is, mostly make repairs,” Lanpher said. “Most of what you see here is unchanged,
believe it or not.”
A sunny room converted into a modern kitchen contains cupboards, built from scratch with reclaimed lumber,
that showcase Lanpher’s mix of passion and skill. ...“You’ve got to draw a line somewhere between making it
spot on with history and making it livable,” Lanpher said, ducking beneath a low door from the original frame.
...“The Grotes are the reason that this is all happening,” Lanpher said of the private owners. “We’re just so
excited about the house and that somebody’s coming here who loves it.”
O’Connor, standing beneath a beamed wooden ceiling, ran a booted foot over knots in the floor boards. The
knots appear warped, jutting upward, because the wood’s knots are tougher than the rest of the floor,
according to O’Connor. So, as the floor boards wore down over the last 300 years, the knots remained closer
to their original thickness.
“Just imagine all the shoes and feet that have walked across this floor,” O’Connor said.
...“When they built this house, there was no Declaration of Independence, no Constitution, no United States
really,” O’Connor said. “It just blows me away every day while I’m sitting here building.” ...read more

HASKELL FIGHTS ON FOR RICOH ARENA AND COVENTRY CITY
American property tycoon determined to invest in stadium and refuses to give up on Sky Blues bid.
Preston Haskell IV is pressing ahead with his plans to buy half the Ricoh Arena – despite failing to win the bid for
Coventry City FC Ltd and the crucial golden share. The American property tycoon is understood to remain determined to
invest in the stadium and refuses to give up his attempt to secure ownership of the Sky Blues.
But administrator Paul Appleton selected Sisu-backed Otium Entertainment Group Ltd and will this week seek approval
from the Football League. Many believe Sisu were always capable of out-bidding the three rival buyers by writing off debt
rather than providing cash.
Haskell appeared to be walking away from the possibility of a takeover following Friday’s dramatic decision but has
renewed his interest following meetings over the weekend. A source close to the American said: “He is very disappointed
with the administrator’s decision on Friday but he believes there is great potential in the stadium that has not yet been

HOW 'NIGHTMARE' PRODUCER TIM HASKELL
TURNED NYC'S FIRST HAUNTED HOUSE INTO A YEAR-ROUND BUSINESS
Ten years ago, when Tim Haskell couldn't find a haunted house in New York City, he did the only thing a theatre
producer would do – he opened his own. Today, Haskell runs Nightmare, a theatrical haunted house that draws in
thousands of visitors each year around Halloween.
When Nightmare opened in 2003, it was widely thought that having a haunted house in New York City was, if not
impossible, at least not profitable. Concerns over building permits, safety and profitability obstructed the creation of a
haunted house. Even Haskell, who was working at the time as a publicist and producer, originally envisioned Nightmare
as drawing an audience similar to an off-off-Broadway play.
"The first year, I told my wife, ‘If 100 people show up tonight, that'd be really awesome,' recalls Haskell. "The first night,
it was literally over 1,000."
Since then, the endeavor has only grown. This year, 30,000 to 35,000 people are expected to walk through the event
and tickets at $30 to $60 a piece. The event opened September 27 and will close on November 2. ...read more
