t the age of 89, Daddy
Bruce Randolph still
sits at a table of his
barbecue ("Daddy Bruce's
Barbecue," located on East
Bruce Randolph Avenue, in
Denver) making plans for the
big Thanksgiving dinner. For
many, many years he has
been feeding thousands of
hungry people on Thanksgiv-
ing. It's an event in Denver.
Everyone in Denver knows
about Daddy Bruce's Thanks-
giving, Christmas, and Easter
dinners, and nearly as many
people know about his famous
barbecued ribs and barbecue
sauce, though not everyone
has tasted them. (They are
somewhat outside and beyond
the bounds of even the most
liberal interpretations of the
kosher laws.)
He talks about the hours he
and his people stay up cook-
ing the ribs and the turkeys
and fixins. He talks about the
people who help him out, he
talks with especially great
pride about the dinners they
deliver to people's homes with
the help of the Denver cab
companies. I see pictures and
posters of Denver Broncos all
over the walls, and I see cer-
tificates and awards and
plaques covering the rest of
the walls, including an award
from one of the local
synagogues.
Daddy Bruce has a
childhood memory that
motivates him to do this. He
remembered that Santa
Claus used to come visit all
the neighbors' kids when he
was a child, but, for some
reason, he didn't come to his
house. It seems that Daddy
Bruce wants to make up for
that somehow and he's doing
a fine job of it.

Shorty Zarris

J.C. Penney in Denver gives
out a humanitarian-type
award annually. It's called
the Golden Rule Award. In
1988, one of . the recipients
was Ernest "Shorty" Zarris,
and the $2,500 award money
went to the city's Senior Sup-
port Services. He was being
recognized for delivering
meals to homebound elderly
people for the previous nine
years in every kind of Denver
weather. He does his
volunteer work through

Denver's Senior Support
Services, and he has a crew of
other volunteers that help
him.
You can always count on
Shorty. And if you are hungry
for that hot meal and lonely
for human contact, it is that
much more important that
you can rely on Shorty to
come bring the food, and visit.
Shorty, who is mentally
disabled, just turned 70.
He wears a baseball cap,
and a belt with a giant
buckle, and his physical
stature justifies his
nickname. That is, of course,
only his physical stature. In
human terms, he is a giant or
at least the size of a husky
lumberjack. And for all his
recognition and fame, he is
really very pleasant and
unassuming.
What I liked about the ar-
ticles I read about him that
led me to go visit was this:
Mark Wolf of the Rocky
Mountain News said, "He
wandered into the Senior
Support Services office nine
years ago. He asked for
something to do, found people
who seemed to need him and
has never left."
That's the key to Shorty
and a lot of Mitzvah work, the
loneliness-breaker and an-
tidote to low self-image: being
needed. If more- people felt
needed, more good things
would happen in this Woeful
World and less people would
feel lonely.

The Eagle Repair

Sigrid Ueblacker repairs
eagles. And hawks and owls
and falcons and other birds of
prey. There have been a cou-
ple of thousand she has taken
care of since 1984,. nearly all
of them victims of gunshots or
traps or poisons or other un-
fortunate encounters with
human beings.
Some of them get well
enough to return to the wild;
others can never go back.
Some have to be taken care of
in her Intensive Care Unit,
and others need relatively
less dramatic attention: basic
veterinary care, good food,
and a huge cage to practice
flying again.
They've even flown eagles
down to her from Alaska to
take care of. I saw seven or
eight golden eagles and one
bald eagle when I was at her
Birds of Prey Rehablitation
Foundation (BPRF) project
outside of Denver. One of
them was no more than a foot
away from me in the I.C.U.
