Will Rogers was a comedian and actor from the early part of the Twentieth Century. Before becoming a stage personality, he had actually been a cowboy – some of his act involved lasso tricks!
Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash, was one of the greatest
political sages this country has ever known.
Some of his sayings:
Never slap a man
who’s chewing tobacco.
Never kick a cow

I’m saddened to report that local radio news personality, famous for 40 years, Bill Heywood, and his wife Susan, were found in a Scottsdale hotel room, together, deceased.
It appears that Susan had some sort of terminal illness, and this was a murder/suicide situation. A note was left on the door advising there would be dead bodies found inside.
Bill Heywood had been a fixture in Valley radio at KOY, KTAR and KFYI radio.
He is much beloved by his many fans.
(UPDATED NEWS REPORTS THIS AS A PLANNED DOUBLE SUICIDE)
RIP Bill and Susan.
