With her husband out of town, Susie Hendrix is alone in her Greenwich Village basement apartment. Alone with a doll stuffed with heroin. Hendrix doesn't know she has the doll; she is blind and she hasn't seen it. She can't see the neighbor girl Gloria, who pops in and out of her apartment, and she can't see the three thugs who try to kill her and get the doll. Written by Frederick Knott, author of Dial M For Murder, Wait Until Dark is a suspenseful two-hour drama kicking off the Aiken Community Playhouse's 1998-99 season.
Jacqueline Bradley isn't a big fan of daytime television talk shows with teen-age girls and their mothers fighting over the same boyfriend. She says she liked The Roseanne Show because the show went out of the living room and touched broader issues. "She goes out further into the world -- she does intercontinental observances," said Ms. Bradley, 75. But Augusta television station WRDW (Channel 12) dropped the show last week after a nine-day run. "I really wish they hadn't," Ms. Bradley said. "I enjoyed it very much."
Marie Conner Boshears never learned to drive a car, but she had a valid pilot's license until the day she died -- at age 87. "Driving made her nervous; flying didn't," said her friend Betty Holmes, who was the office manager at Augusta Aviation. "That's the way flying is -- it's very relaxing." Marie and her husband, Buster Boshears, flew crosscountry in open-cockpit planes, dropping into corn fields to refuel. "They'd act like they never seen a woman pilot," remembers Wanda Boshears, her daughter-in-law. They hadn't -- there were few Amelia Earharts back then.
