Another of the greats has just left us. JERRY NELSON, one of the original Muppet Performers has passed away. Jerry was the creative force behind SESAME STREET'S Count Von Count, Herry Monster, Amazing Mumford, Biff, THE MUPPET SHOW'S Floyd Pepper, Robin the Frog, Lew Zealand, FRAGGLE ROCK'S Gobo, Majory the Trash Heap, Pa Gorg, and numerous more other characters on those shows as well as many others than even The COUNT himself could Count.. He was also a talented singer/musician, and even put out a CD of his own, TURUO DAYDREAMS. I had the pleasure of meeting Jerry in person twice, during THE MUPPET SHOW LIVE at MUPPETFEST and at the NY MUSEUM OF TV AND RADIO, and both those times he was nothing less than awesome. My deepest condolences to the Nelson family and all of his closest associates. The man will be missed, but definitely not forgotten. Jerry once stated that he got into puppetry by lying and wearing cowboy boots.that inspired this little tribute..And I'm honored that he appreciated my work..Thank you for everything, Jerry.

From the 08/09/2012 SALEM (MA) NEWS: The deal is done in the saga of the old Salem Harbor Plant. The Footprint Power Co. bought the site, and the time is coming for the old plant to be demolished and the area cleaned up. Let's hope things go smoother than what the drawing implies.
