RADIAL KERTOTOMY

Surgical Correction of Nearsightedness & Astigmatism
"Working for a newspaper and having young children at
home means taking time off is out of the question. I had my
RK surgery on a Friday and was able to return to work the
following Monday. I even attended a party the day after
surgery."
— Dharlene Norris, Farmington Hills, MI
"I was the first of 4 members of my family to have RK
surgery. My results are wonderful! I'm experiencing a whole
new freedom without my glasses."
— David Gronow, Detroit, MI
"My husband was nervous for me, but now we both wish I'd
had RK surgery years ago. Until now I didn't know a sur-
geon I felt I could depend on. I would hate to see my sons
wait until they are my age to have RK."
- Adrienne Awender, Brighton , MI

But the soul continues.
In Why Is Everyone
Crying, he recounts a story
told by author Rabbi Earl
Grollman:
A young boy watches
closely a nest of bird's eggs \
he finds near his home.
One day he sees that the
eggs have broken, and all
that remains are empty
shells. He begins to cry.
Then his father explains,
"The birds have escaped
from the eggs, and soon
they will be flying around
in the sky. This is the way \,
nature intended it to be.
And so it is when we die.
Our souls escape from our
bodies. All that's left is the
empty shell."

now we have to deal with
our children and death.”
He hopes his book will
help.
Why Is Everyone Crying
explains both small chil-
dren's and teen-agers'
understandings of death.
Mr. Bodzin, the father of
14-year-old Jennifer and
David, 11, said younger
children often have no idea
of what the word even
means.
"Explain to them that
the body stops, that noth-
ing functions any longer,"
he said. "You don't eat or
hear or see or feel any-
thing. All that's left of the
body is a shell of what
used to be there."

ewish News founder
and Editor Emeritus
Philip Slomovitz will
be inducted this
spring into the Michigan
Journalism Hall of Fame,
officials announced last
weekend.
Mr. Slomovitz, 96, who
founded The Jewish News
50 years ago and made a
name for himself with his
weekly Purely Commen-
tary column, will join
three others for this year's
top journalism honor in
the state.
"This is deeply moving
to me," said Mr. Slomo-
vitz, who now is complete-
ly blind and dictates his
weekly column from his
Southfield home to Percy
Kaplan, retired executive
director of the local Jew-
ish National Fund. "The
privilege of acknowledging
the many kindnesses of
my fellow citizens and fel-
low journalists is so deep
rooted.
"My urgent hopes have
always been as they are
now, and as they can
never be erased, that in
our nation, those in our
profession will continue to
strive always to the high-
est goals."
Nominated by his life-
long friend, Leonard
Simons, Mr. Slomovitz
was one of 14 journalists
and educators under con-
sideration for the honor.
Detroit Free Press Pub-
lisher Neal Shine (himself
a Hall of Fame member)

Philip Slomovitz

and Bob Cohn of the
American Jewish Press
Association wrote letters
supporting Mr. Slomo-
vitz's nomination.
The three other 1993
inductees are UPI White
House Bureau Chief Helen
Thomas, Grosse Pointe
News editorial writer Bill
Elston and the late Bill
Black (George Martin),
who served on the news
staff of WJR Radio.
"Even though he operat-
ed from a journalistic
forum less prominent than
the Detroit-area dailies,
Slomovitz never believed
he was operating in their
shadow," Mr. Shine
"He is 96, is legally blind
but continues to write a
column for his newspaper.
It speaks more than words
of his dedication to his
craft."
