--Wayne Chandler (2006)
Wayne Chandler, a former WSVN-Channel 7 weatherman whose career ended abruptly after a 1984 head-on car crash, died Wednesday. He was 65. In addition to giving weekend weather reports, Chandler hosted a kids' show called Sunday Funnies with Charlie Folds for more than a decade in the 1970s and early '80s. ''He auditioned as co-host and I liked him right away,'' said Folds, who retired from the station in 2003. "He had a way with children.'' Folds recalled how Chandler read comics like Peanuts and Hagar the Horrible during the half-hour program, while Folds, dressed in a Toby the Robot costume, made sound effects. ''He did the talking, I did the clowning around,'' Folds said. Chandler's baritone voicecaptivated TV audiences, Folds said. ''He had a unique voice. A deep, deep announcer voice,'' Folds said. Chandler worked with the station until Dec. 7 1984, when a head-on collision left him with multiple fractures and a severe head injury. Chandler was traveling in a Volkswagen Beetle on Biscayne Boulevard when another driver lost control and struck his car. Chandler slowly recovered, his wife said, but was never well enough to return to work. "It kind of got to him for a while after his accident, because that was his life,'' said his wife, Lynn Chandler. Sunday Funnies ended soon after Chandler's departure from the station. Chandler was born Oct. 17, 1940, in Chester, Pa. He moved to South Florida as a child, graduating from North Miami High School. He later attended Miami Dade Community College, and earned a bachelor's degree in meteorology from Florida International University. Before working at WSVN -- formerly WCKT -- he worked in sales, his wife said. In addition to his wife, Chandler is survived by four daughters and one grandchild. A memorial service will take place at 2 p.m. Saturday at Fred Hunter's Funeral Home in Hollywood. (Note: Thanks to all those who let me know about the death of Wayne. P. S. Wayne had been married to another former Pioneer, Sharon Madsen)

Paul, who died of cancer, was a great writer and wonderful friend as well as one of the funniest people I ever knew. He had a career in newspapers that concluded at the New York Post where he wrote the all-important tabloid headline: The assassination of Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi:SIKHS AND VIOLENCE. A decapitation in a strip joint: HEADLESS BODY IN TOPLESS BAR. He was also the most stubborn person I knew. Refusing to comply with a court order he thought wrong, he spent eleven days short of three years in a Georgia jail. It took the ACLU and the Georgia Supreme court to get him out. We all miss him.

"Mike was the ultimate law enforcement professional, an outstanding administrator, and most of all, a great human being. His knowledge and skills will leave a lasting impact on this City for decades to come. He will be sorely missed," said Coral Gables City Manager David L. Brown. Michael L. Hammerschmidt was sworn in as Police Chief of the City of Coral Gables in 2004, taking the helm of an accredited Police Department that serves a community of more than 44,000 residents. He was widely respected by the department's officers and non-sworn employees and by the community at large for his professionalism and leadership. During his tenure, Chief Hammerschmidt was best known in the law enforcement community for his innovative approaches to providing police services. With a combination of strategic operations and community programs he was able to effectively reduce crime in the City of Coral Gables. Among those strategies was the redeployment of officers to better patrol the neighborhoods, increased police service in the downtown business area and upgrading of the 9-1-1 Communications Center. Prior to taking the helm of the Coral Gables Police Department, he was a 32-year veteran of the Miami-Dade Police Department, where he retired at the rank of Major. He held a Bachelor's Degree in Economics from Vanderbilt University and a Master's Degree in Public Administration from the University of Miami. Additionally, Chief Hammerschmidt was a graduate of the Southern Police Institute at the University of Louisville and was an active Executive Board Member of the Miami-Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police at the time of his passing.
