(back) Subject: Update on Sand From: "David Scribner" <david@blackiris.com> Date: Mon, 13 Jan 2003 21:22:04 -0600   We just got an update on Sand's condition from D.H.   He had a coronary catheterization today. He tolerated it well. He will have a stent put in one vessel tomorrow (tuesday) morning beginning at 6:30 AM He seems to be in good spirits and quite stable. D.H. thinks he will be all right. Please pray that the procedure goes well. If so he may be able to go home later in the week.   Hopefully we will have another update tomorrow night   David

Readers in northern Indiana or the Chicago area may = wish to take note-- Berrien Springs is in the southwest corner of = Michigan, half an hour from South Bend. There's Amtrak service from = Chicago to St. Joseph, just down the road from Berrien Springs, and I'd be = glad to provide connecting rides if anyone wishes to take that option.   Carol Scott Stevensville United Methodist Church   Mike Gettelman wrote:   I will travel a bit next Sunday (if the weather permits) to hear Felix Hell give a performance at the subject church in Fort Wayne Indiana. After hearing Felix play 6 times last year, I would gladly travel any reasonable distance to hear him play again, and I wouldn't really mind if he was playing a calliope or a Mander, such is my attraction to any Felix Hell performance.      
(back) Subject: A-S at Trinity English Lutheran From: "First Christian Church of Casey, IL" <kzrev@rr1.net> Date: Mon, 13 Jan 2003 21:53:35 -0600   Having been a member at Trinity English Lutheran Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana about 1991-94, I can testify that the Aeolian-Skinner organ there = is magnificent. It is, indeed, four manuals, and close to 100 ranks. About 1990-91 the console was redone and, I imagine, a modern relay system was installed because the organist, Robert Hobby, joked that the church gained an entire room in the renovations. There may have been a minor addition = or two the pipes, but certainly no more if that. I do know that a = professional Zimbelstern replaced an amateur one that someone had placed on the instrument. I don't know who did the work.   The high-pressure trumpet installed in the dome is almost enough to wake = the dead; it is spectacular, especially on an Easter Sunday. The organ is installed in the chancel, but speaks very well despite that.   About the time of the console renovations, a small gallery organ was installed--perhaps six or eight ranks, so the choir could sing from the gallery on occasion. It has its own console and is playable from the main console.   Incidentally, the beautiful Gothic sanctuary dates from the 1920's and was designed by architect J. Bertram Goodhue, who also designed Rockefeller Chapel at the University of Chicago.   Long-time organist at Trinity (and organist emeritus for several years), Richard Carlson, passed away within the last year.   I hope I have my facts accurate; I'm going from memory here.   Rev. Dennis Steckley
