nature and nurture

At some point in my life, I realized I needed to live near the water. I grew up close to Lake Michigan and spent summers building sand castles and swimming in the surf. Then in 1978, my husband, Ray, and I made the bold decision to relocate to California where we could live near the ocean. Our little town, Fortuna, didn’t even have a McDonald’s then, so it was ideal for living an unplugged life. We were “working for the weekends”—he at the Shrine Drive-Thru Tree and I at the local newspaper—and spent hours at the beach or by the river. We didn’t have much, but we made it work. Alas, five years later, my father-in-law got sick; we moved back to Lombard, Illinois, to take care of him and the house.…

two buddies kidding around

Roger Peterson was excited. The 21-year-old Iowa pilot was about to fly three of the biggest rock stars—Charles Hardin “Buddy” Holly, 22, Ritchie Valens, 17, and The Big Bopper (J.P. Richardson), 28—to Fargo, North Dakota, their next tour stop. Each had paid $36—about $300 today—for a place on the four-seater plane. Holly’s backup band, initially scheduled to fly with him, consisted of two then-unknown musicians, guitarist Tommy Allsup and bassist Waylon Jennings. Don McLean’s 1971 hit “American Pie” memorialized rock’s first tragedy. Chartering the 1947 Beechcraft Bonanza was Holly’s idea. The grinding Midwest tour (dubbed the Winter Dance Party) had proven wretched. Their school bus often broke down in whiteout conditions. Enough was enough. On the night of Feb. 2, 1959, the musicians, along with supporting act Dion and the Belmonts, rocked the…
