WASHINGTON â€” In a charmed life of newspapering, Ben Bradlee seemed always to be in just the right place.
The raspy-voiced, hard-charging editor who invigorated The Washington Post got an early break as a journalist thanks to his friendship with one president, John F. Kennedy, and became famous for his role in toppling another, Richard Nixon, in the Watergate scandal.
Bradlee died at home Tuesday of natural causes, the Post reported. He was 93.
Bob Barnes, 77, of Haskell passed away Monday, Oct. 20, 2014, at McClellan Veterans Administration Hospital in Little Rock.
He was born Feb. 7, 1937 in Cushman to the late Charles Floyd and Wilma L. (Fulbright) Barnes. He was a tool and die maker with Orbit Valve for 32 years, was of the Pentecostal faith, and served in the U.S. Army. Mr. Barnes loved reading, gardening, camping, fishing, hunting, and garage sales to add to his junk collection. He dearly loved his grandkids.
