Ivan Muzinich would like to report on the passing of Professor Geoffrey Chew on April 12 at age  95. He was emeritus at the Physics Department

at UC Berkeley. He was my thesis advisor and a giant amongst physicists in the latter part of the 20th Century. He was mentored by Edward Teller, George Gamow, and was a student of Enrico Fermi at the University of Chicago. He had scores of students one of which is a Nobel Prize winner.

Village Missionaries: Kevin & Leslie Hausman, Calumet, MI: We live in the area of Upper Peninsula Michigan known as the Copper Country, about as far north as you can get in the UP. We live on the "fin" which is about 20 miles wide and 40 miles long and are surrounded by Lake Superior. We are in what is called a snow-belt due to lake-effect snow, which averages to around 300 inches of snow for us each year.  It is an extremely beautiful place to live regardless of the season.
