SI swimsuit model from Middletown?
Imagine my surprise when I was reading – yes, I said reading – the new “Sports Illustrated” swimsuit issue last night and saw that one of “the rookies” models was born in my hometown of Middletown, Ohio. On Page 29, Brooklyn Decker, 18, says she was born in Middletown, but raised in Charlotte, N.C. Her dad, Stephen, implants pacemakers. Her mom is a nurse.
Anyone who knew a Dr. Stephen Decker or his wife in the Middletown area 18-20 years ago should post on this blog now. I’m trying to track down anyone who knew the family.
For 7th Heaven Fans
If you’re a fan of WB’s “7th Heaven” – and I know many folks here are – then you should be at the main Public Library in downtown Cincinnati at 1 p.m. Saturday. Writer Suzanne Fitzpatrick from the sweet family drama (and WB’s #1 rated show) will participate in a panel discussion, “Break in Hollywood: The Art of Screenwriting” with Ken Jones, NKU theatre department chairman.
They’re scheduled to talk about how to improve your screenplays, and selling your work in Hollywood, with the Oscars just around the corner. But I’m sure Fitzpatrick also will talk about “7th Heaven,” which is going out of production this spring. The panel discussion is 1 p.m. at the the Huenefeld Tower Room, on the third floor. It’s presented by the Public Library’s Literature and Languages Department.
