Bay Weekly’s Labor Day parade of working people

Americans are working people. We chanced on this land as explorers and claimed it as settlers. In the unbroken land of the new world, the explorers’ dreams of gold demanded pursuit as strenuous as the settlers’ ambition of a place to call their own. We’re still at it. Work brings us our livelihood, supports our families, endows our futures, defines our identities.

Navy football coach Ken Niumatololo is already back to work for the new season

Few coaches in major-college football have had the success Ken Niumatololo has had in his first six years as head coach of Navy’s Midshipmen.     Since taking over in 2008 from former head coach Paul Johnson, Niumatololo has piled up 49 wins. That’s more wins than any other coach in Academy history has accumulated in his first six seasons. It puts him on the brink of history this season as Navy’s all-time winningest coach.

The closest you can get to World War II

A legendary World War II-era B-17 Flying Fortress takes to the skies this weekend.     “This is the closest thing you can get to the battlefield experience,” said Bob Hill, chief Liberty Foundation pilot.     The B-17 was a workhorse in bombing raids over Germany in World War II. Some 4,735 B-17 aircraft were lost in combat during the war.  The bombers’ 10-man crews flew each mission knowing there was a 3-to-1 probability they would not return safely.

The healing power of a good story

Bob Timberg has a face you don’t forget.     How the U.S. Naval Academy graduate and Marine first lieutenant — handsome son of a mother who was a McCall’s cover girl at 13 — got that face is a question you don’t ask.     Yet now, “as I edge into my seventies,” Timberg says, he has written a book revealing the whole story.     “I had third-degree burns, the skin … totally destroyed, top to bottom,” he writes.

Fourteen students graduated from Charter Captain Courses after earning their certificates in the 12-week course taught by Captains Ken Daniel and Bill Tyndall of Cambridge. Graduation was on the Dorothy Megan paddle wheeler at Suicide Bridge Restaurant.         The course, started in 1951 by Capt. E. L. Thomas, was the first Coast Guard-approved captain school in the area. The school is Coast Guard-approved to teach and test for the OUPV (six pack) license and up to 100 gross ton Master’s Near Coastal license.

Policy for success takes more than good luck

Labor Day is just another day off — albeit the one that closes summer — unless we know our history. Our work-free first Monday of September is in fact “a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of our country,” according the U.S. Department of Labor.
