Chatsworth Historical Society pioneer gets name on museum

first_imgThe museum and preserved home are both part of the homestead, where paths meander past gardens and fruit trees. The one-room museum includes American Indian artifacts and photographs of families who settled in the area. Watson founded the Chatsworth Historical Society in 1963, and one of the group’s first major projects was to help save and move the original Chatsworth Community Church to the Oakwood Memorial Park where it still stands today. “There are still a bunch of us old-timers here who work and care for Chatsworth,” said Lillian Schepler, treasurer for the Chatsworth Historical Society. “We’ve had a wonderful life here,” she said. “Chatsworth has been so good to us.” Many who attended the event were unaware of Chatsworth’s early days, of those first families who settled on the land after President Abraham Lincoln signed the Homestead Act in 1862. The historic decree allowed any qualified citizen or intended citizen to acquire up to 160 acres of federal land in the West, free of charge. “I had seen these buildings before, but I had no idea what they were and what they meant,” said Elizabeth Puno, 55, of Reseda. Others said the event itself offered great history lessons. “I went panning for gold, I made butter, and I liked the bean bag race,” said Kristin Long, an 8-year-old Chatsworth resident. “And we learned to polish stones.” Her mother, Lisa Long, said they had come to the event at the last minute, but managed to experience more than they had expected. “It’s been a great outing,” Lisa Long said. “It’s a beautiful park and it’s been a wonderful day.” susan.abram@dailynews.com (818) 713-3664160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

And in return for decades of work, Watson received what she called the best gift she could ever imagine on Sunday: Her name was emblazoned on a small, yet historically vibrant, museum she helped to establish. “I was terribly surprised,” the 86-year-old woman said after the ceremony. “It’s the greatest gift anyone could ever give to me.” Watson was honored during the annual Chatsworth Historical Society Pioneer Days, held on an acre stretch of land where the early-20th-century Hill-Palmer Homestead Cottage still stands inside Chatsworth Park. last_img read more

Soon, more well-recognised numbers followed – Kissa Tera, Teri Dastan (Kismat Konnection ), Yeh Dooriyan (Love Aaj Kal ).The singer with a glossy voice, who lived in Delhi for a few years before shifting to Mumbai, recalled an amusing anecdote from his student days.”I was a science student and used to study rocks. When I joined the master’s programme, I didn’t study for six months because I was busy admiring the mountains and composing this song,” he said and hummed few notes of his popular number – Dooba Dooba from the Silk Route’s debut album, Boondein ( 1998).The song got the audience humming and grooving along.

Chauhan seemed to be in a mood to play with the audience.He said, ” There is a film called Jab We Met that has a song called Masakali ,” and added, “I’ll sing it only on one condition – you’ll have to sing along.” The crowd was more than willing; they happily sang along and jived to the lilting number from Dilli 6 . He had to cut short his story and the soiree due to time constraints but the singer promised to return soon.- The bands Indian Ocean and Euphoria get on stage for the Qutub Festival tonight.last_img read more

Domantas Sabonis sharp again at MSG as Pacers beat Knicks

first_imgSTOMACH SICKNESS?Kanter posted a video of his “cheat day” meal on Wednesday, with seven burgers and a plate of fries on the table in front of him. He then missed practice Thursday and the game Friday because of illness, leading to speculation that he had ate himself sick. But Fizdale thought there was no way Kanter actually ate all that food.“The guy walks around with his shirt off all day in the locker room. There’s no way he’s stuffing seven burgers down his face. I just don’t see that,” Fizdale said. “I think sometimes people take the ‘gram too seriously.”UP NEXTPacers: Host Phoenix on Tuesday.Knicks: Host Philadelphia on Sunday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “It felt good to play here,” rookie Kevin Knox said. “Not the result we wanted, but it felt good to finally be back at Madison Square Garden.”New York battled back from 13 down to take the lead on Tim Hardaway Jr.’s second straight 3-pointer, but with the game tied, Indiana scored the final 12 points, with Oladipo hitting consecutive 3-pointers, to make it 64-52 at halftime.Bogdanovic then opened and closed a 16-7 spurt out of the locker room with 3-pointers to open an 80-59 cushion.Hardaway played just a minute of the fourth quarter before leaving for good because he was cramping.

Fizdale said he spoke Friday with Porzingis, who is scheduled to be re-evaluated in about a month. He said Porzingis’ spirits were positive.“Obviously he misses playing, that part has been hard,” Fizdale said, “but he’s starting to get stronger, so he’s feeling better. And he seems to be in a really good place.” Sabonis shot 9 for 14 from the field to finish 21 of 26 this season in two games in New York.
