170th post

CONTINUED FROM LAST EVENING.

To get to my grandparents from our house in Dayton we took old State

Route 42. It is now a double lane from just entering the town of Broadway to

the North where State Route 42 ends, to the South going past Dayton and

after traveling about 1.5 miles the dual lane ends just before entering the

town of Bridgewater. An asphalt buggy trail, to assure more safety for the

Old Order Mennonites, as wide as a full grown car on the right side of the

car lanes on both sides of the road and extends from near Turner Ashby High

School and my Father and Mother's last home, to the Hair Corral just North

of Dayton and with plans to extend the buggy trail further to the North.

TO BE CONTINUED.


The history of Christ the Redeemer who watches over the city of Rio de

Janeiro and the history of the Olympics were concluded last evening and

we must say good-by, at least for now.



Summary of the XXXI Olympiad.

SPORTS OF THE (NEW YORK) TIMES

By SIMON ROMERO and ANDREW JACOBS, AUG. 21, 2016....

"RIO DE JANEIRO — The skies opened on Sunday night over Maracanã,

the stadium where Brazil bade farewell to the Rio Olympics with a

spectacle celebrating everything from the giants of Brazilian music to

the rock art drawn by tribesmen thousands of years ago, as if the heavens

were lamenting the end of the 17-day sports extravaganza.

Still, the rainfall at the closing ceremony had little effect on the spirits of

the performers who praised towering creative figures and thinkers like

the prolific composer Heitor Villa-Lobos; the landscape architect Roberto

Burle Marx; and Niède Guidon, the archaeologist whose discoveries in

the remote caves of northeast Brazil are challenging long-held beliefs about

the peopling of the Americas.

Nodding to Brazil’s diversity as Latin America’s largest country, the

ceremony also honored facets of an astonishingly rich musical heritage

that are often overlooked, promoting As Ganhadeiras de Itapuã, a group

of former washerwomen rescuing Afro-Brazilian songs in northeast Brazil,

as well as Arnaldo Antunes, a poet and vocalist who once sang for Titãs,

a pioneering São Paulo rock band."  TO BE CONTINUED....
