AUGUST 10—GEORGE WINSTON
8 p.m. Tickets - $23 ($12 for ages 18 and under)
“Winston is the undisputed master of contemporary
solo piano, and his lyrical style is often imitated but
never duplicated.” —Dirty Linen
Celebrated pianist/composer and Windham
Hill flagship artist George Winston closes out
the summer series at Fermilab. In 1998,
Winston celebrated his 25th anniversary as
a recording artist. His first album, “Ballads
and Blues,” was released in 1972 and later
picked up by Windham Hill Records. Among
his most memorable albums include “Autumn,”
“December,” “Winter Into Spring,” and
“Summer.” “Autumn,” which recently celebrated
its 20th anniversary, almost single-handedly
launched Winston, Windham Hill Records,
and the genre of contemporary adult
instrumental music. Inspired by blues, rock,
R&B, and jazz, Winston began playing organ
and electric piano in 1967. He switched to
acoustic piano in 1971 after hearing recordings
by some of the legendary swing pianists,
specifically Fats Waller and Teddy Wilson.

Tim Draper: a boy, Emrys Michael,

In June 2002, Don Cossairt became a Fellow
of the Health Physics Society. The nomination
was made by peers at other DOE accelerator
laboratories. The designation, currently applied
to about two percent of the membership of HPS,
is in recognition of outstanding contributions to
the profession of Health Physics.
July 8, 2002, marked the kickoff for another
Utility Incentive Project with ComEd. A new
mile-long utility corridor with lines for natural
gas, domestic water, industrial cooling water
and sanitary will run from near CDF around
the Tevatron ring to DZero. Groundbreaking
were (from left) Jim Boyanchek, representing
the project design firm Patrick Engineering;
Jed Brown, Fermilab Associate Director;
Jane Monhart, Manager of the DOE Fermi
Area Office; and Dave Nevin, Head of FESS.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
It’s my nature to stay out of the limelight and
not draw much attention to myself. I’ve always
opted to let the people doing the real work—
technicians, designers, drafters, welders,
procurement people and the like—take credit
where it’s due. I do find it humiliating though that
the news source for the place where I’ve spent
25 years working on nearly every big project
can’t seem to get my name spelled right—it’s not really a complicated name—most
recently on page 13 of the June 14 issue
(vol. 25, no. 10, “Changing of the Guard”),
but also just last year in the Engineering issue
(vol. 24, no. 5, May 4, 2001). In a place where
common names are far from common, I would
think that your writers would have gotten over
assuming they know them all without checking
first. —Tom Nicol
FERMINEWS apologizes for misspelling
Tom Nicol’s name. —The Editors
