andrewm@herald-mail.com It's been almost 40 years since Wayne Vaughn was dealt the bad news during his freshman year in college. Due to complications from spinal meningitis, he needed to have brain surgery. "I was told that I had a 50-50 chance of pulling through, and then another 50-50 chance of ever running again," said Vaughn, who, a year earlier, had won a title at the 1964 Maryland State Cross Country Championships as a senior at South Hagerstown. "I'm living, and I'm still running.

andrewm@herald-mail.com "If you build it, they will come. " While Kevin Costner got the tip from a magical cornfield in the 1989 baseball film "Field of Dreams," U.S. Navy Commander John Collins magically dreamt it up in 1978 to settle an argument. The debate was something like, "Who's more physically fit - swimmers, runners or bicyclists?" Collins' brainstorm resulted in the first Ironman triathlon in Hawaii that same year, drawing athletes from all three sports to put their endurance to the test with a 2.4-mile ocean swim, 112-mile bike ride and 26.2-mile marathon run - respectively and consecutively.

Maryland has a slightly higher percentage of millionaire households than Hawaii. That's according to a New York company that studies affluent households. Phoenix Marketing International released its annual ranking of millionaires per capita by state Thursday, with Maryland supplanting Hawaii by a fraction. Hawaii had led the rankings since 2008. Approximately 7.22 percent of Maryland's households are millionaires, compared to 7.21 percent in Hawaii. David Thompson, executive director of Phoenix Global Wealth, said this is the closest it's ever been between the top two states.

At some point in time, we've all had our to-do lists. Some were for work; some were for school. Some were even written for us by others (wives, husbands, parents, children, etc.) I have one that I made about 10 years ago. For a while, I carried it in my wallet. Now, it's etched in my memory. On the list are six things that I'd like to do in my lifetime. 1. Write a book. 2. Run a marathon. 3. Attend a World Series game. 4. Go skydiving. 5. Visit Alaska and Hawaii.

Crena Anderson wasn't at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked on Dec. 7, 1941. But the 88-year-old Halfway resident will be linked to that day for the rest of her life. She said her first and second husbands were stationed at Army bases in Hawaii during the attack, although the two young soldiers didn't know each other at the time. “I'm proud of what they did - very proud,” Crena said at her home earlier this week. “They must have been scared to death.” Crena said she married her first husband, Marvin Spencer, shortly after they met while he was home on leave in 1944.

Anti-Obama vote aside, why vote for Mitt? To the editor: I would like my GOP friends to tell me why they are voting for Mitt Romney. And it's got to be more than the president's so-called failures. The only reason he's failed at anything is because the Congress blocks his every move. He's tried to pass five job bills, highway funding and various women's issues. People must believe this, because Congress is at its worst approval at 10 percent! The only job plan the GOP has is Paul Ryan's plan, which even the nonpartisan budget office has said it is a loser; it would hurt the poor, seniors and the middle class.

The pineapple was once a very lonely fruit sent over to the mainland from Hawaii.  James Dole canned his heart out but realized that many homemakers and cooks had no idea what to do with this product. So he had to create some recipes for a fruit he already introduced to the marketplace. The addition of the mango into this recipe adds a nice touch of color and mellowness to the pineapple to really round out this soup.  If you don't like the mango, try kiwi, strawberries, fresh peaches or simply up the amount of pineapple.
