Bruce Campbells in the news
#1
It's amazing how many people share this name!

From the 10/21 Boston Herald:

Quote: Maryland quarterback Chris Turner and offensive tackle Bruce Campbell earned weekly honors from the Atlantic Coast Conference on Monday....Campbell was offensive lineman of the week, helping the Terps run for 140 yards while allowing no sacks.

And from 3/15/07 at PaidContent.org (a tv industry journal) :

Quote:Bruce Campbell is leaving NBC-Universal, where he was Exec. VP for Business Development, for the Discovery Channel, and is being appointed to the new post of President of Digital Media, Emerging Networks and Business Development.....The newly created position will give Campbell oversight of all major business transactions at Discovery, from acquisitions to new-media services.

I'll add some others when I come across them, because there are tons!

Sure enough, from the Washington Times:

Quote:Bruce Campbell scanned the BCS rankings Sunday night as team after team scrolled across the bottom of his television.

......

“I said, 'We're ranked. I'm actually proud because I'm part of this team. I did something with this team to get ranked,'” Campbell said. “I was so happy.”

.....

The improvement of Maryland's offensive line is a vital component in the team's two-game winning streak. With right tackle Dane Randolph ailing and the unit seeking a jolt of athleticism, coaches decided to shift Scott Burley from left tackle to the right side and slide Campbell into Burley's old spot.

The Terps would be hard-pressed to find anyone with the combination of speed and strength as the 6-foot-7, 295-pound Campbell. Part technician and part power blocker, Campbell possesses the physical aspects to dominate. When units competed in sprints last week at the end of a practice, the offensive line sent Campbell out in hopes his virtually assured victory would excuse the rest of them from running.....


And, from The Bona Venture, the student newspaper of St. Bonaventure University in St. Bonaventure, NY, comes this:

Quote:St. Bonaventure's graduate programs and dual-degree programs are on the rise, according to Bruce Campbell, director of graduate admissions.
.....

"(Students) may not be aware of the breadth of our programs, but we've had (graduate) programs here for a long time," Campbell said.....

And from the Lancaster, PA Lancaster Online site:

Quote:Rhythm guitarist Dave Francis has formed a new trio called Rue de la Pompe, his latest tribute to gypsy jazz and their three-fingered hero, Django Reinhardt. The trio features bass aces Steve Meashey and Bruce Campbell and multi-instrumentalist Ken Gehret on violin and guitar. The trio will perform from 6 to 9 tonight at Effie Ophelia, 230 N. Prince St.

And from the Sikeston (Missouri) Standard-Democrat:

Quote:Tuesday, November 18, 2008 - PUXICO -- Pallbearers for services conducted Monday at the Watkins and Sons Funeral Chapel in Puxico for Jerry Edward Park, 65, who died Nov. 13, 2008, were: Bruce Campbell, Reggie Williams, Lloyd Hyten, David Burge, Clay Harty, Denny Teets, Lennis Stroud and Ronnie Peters.

And from the Martha's Vineyard Times:

Quote:Seth and Jacqueline Campbell of Wellington, New Zealand, happily announced the birth of their son, Silas McLeod Campbell, on December 28, 2008. Silas weighed in at 8 pounds, 2 ounces. Congratulations to Martha's Vineyard grandparents, Dolly and Bruce Campbell.

And from the Loveland, Colorado Reporter-Herald:

Quote:Artist Bruce Campbell proves that the potential for beauty may be found in anything.

"Water heaters are my main medium," he said -- and he wasn't joking. Old rusted pieces of metal fire his imagination, and he is able to bring them to life through paint. This is how he has made his living for 20 years.

His work is environmentally conscious. "I've diverted countless tons of material from the waste stream, and hopefully I'm helping people see the beauty and value in so-called 'junk,'" he wrote on his Web site.

In one of his most prominent projects, he designed the Solar Stage, which was powered by solar energy, at the Bonnaroo music festival in Tennessee. He is currently working on an installation for the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he was commissioned to salvage material for the sculpture from a building demolition at the campus.

He works from his home studio in Boulder County west of Longmont.

No, it's Michael.

Well, that's going to cause a bit of confusion - mind if we call you Bruce to keep it clear?

From the South Bend Tribune:

Quote:CASSOPOLIS — Boaters, be smart.

Cass County Water Resources Commissioner Bruce Campbell is urging boaters to use good judgment as summer approaches because of high water levels.
.........


"Water is standing in many farm fields, which has prompted a late start to the growing season for some," Campbell said. "A number of people throughout the county have told me that they are seeing water in places that they never had before."
.....

"We are looking at a number of projects to help alleviate the problems that high water has caused. We truly are at the mercy of Mother Nature," Campbell said.

And from Seattle's local KING-5 TV:

Quote:.... Bruce Campbell, Representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), on behalf of the United Nations Country Team in Vietnam, said that investments in education and health for women and girls had been linked to increases in productivity, agriculture yields, and national income.

And from the Syracuse (NY) Post-Standard:

Quote:With horns blaring, car dealer Bill Fuccillo pulled up in front of the home of Bruce and Reeny Campbell ....in a truck hauling five Kia Spectras and four Hyundai Elantras.

Bruce Campbell has won the cars in raffle for people who visited Fuccillo's new Kia dealership in Clay and Hyundai dealership in Syracuse in June.

"I feel blessed,'' said Campbell, 44, a computer support specialist at Liverpool High School.

Catholic schoolgirls wearing revealing plaid skirts? Sounds like a job for Bruce Campbell! :bounce: :crazy:

From NewsTalk 1010 Toronto:

Quote:Catholic schools across the Greater Toronto Area are dropping uniform kilts altogether due to hiking hemlines.

Bruce Campbell with the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board where only six of 25 high schools still allow kilts to be worn says the kilts lack modesty and morality.

The board started phasing them out several years ago after some girls refused to obey rules to keep hemlines near their knees. Principals and teachers have been left in playing the role of fashion police and Campbell says education should be the first priority and not time enforcing uniform rules........

OK, this one is just for Boomstick, director from Straight.com, Vancouver's Online Source:

Quote:Bruce Campbell: Canadians are finally starting to rethink tax cuts

Now that Canada is in the fiscal red, taxes appear to be coming back into fashion.

A surprisingly broad swath of Canadians—and not your usual suspects—are musing aloud about the need to raise taxes to tackle the deficit and to pay for the things we care most about, such as public health care.

Almost three out of five Canadian CEOs surveyed in March say higher taxes are needed to get the country back into the fiscal black.....

Bruce Campbell is executive director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives

And.... from the Toowoomba Chronicle - your premiere source of news for everything going on in Queensland's Toowoomba, Lockyer Valley and Darling Downs region - Bruce Campbell is also is behind bars today! But the judge said that:

Quote: ....the whole incident may have been avoided had Senior Constable Jarred Donovan shown better people skills in dealing with Campbell and his group at the time of the incident.

Snr Cst Donovan had tipped out cans of alcohol and seized unopened drink cans from Campbell’s group in Anzac Park across the road from the Rams Head Hotel shortly after closing time on June 21, last year.

By his own evidence, Snr Cst Donovan had not explained to the group why he was confiscating the alcohol, Judge Wall said.

Incensed, Campbell had approached the officer and a protracted struggle ensued to the point Snr Cst Donovan twice applied capsicum spray to his attacker.

Lesson learned: never try to take a beer away from an Aussie. :bounce:

The former offensive tackle from Maryland, Bruce Campbell, is still huge news, and was drafted by the Oakland Raiders this past spring:

Quote:Bruce Campbell is an Oakland Raider, just like everyone expected. He even went with the eighth pick, like many thought.

It just happened to be the eighth pick of the fourth round. The Maryland tackle blew up the combine and is an incredible size and speed prospect, and worth a shot this late in the draft.
.......

Campbell was the biggest standout of the combine, but his game tape pushed him to day three.

Read the rest at NBC Sports.

And the Dodge dealership owner who sat on Bruce's domain name for years is in the news too; from the Detroit Free Press:

Quote:Bruce Campbell Dodge of Redford Township became the second metro Detroit dealer to win an arbitration of Chrysler's decision to close its new-car business as part of its government-backed restructuring.

"This decision corrects the wrongful termination of an outstanding Dodge dealer," said James Brennan, the attorney who represented the Campbell dealership.
......

Campbell's Dodge franchise was awarded to Mark Snethkamp, who operates a Chrysler-Jeep store less than two miles from Campbell Dodge in Redford Township....

And, who wouldn't want their wedding officiated by Bruce Campbell? From the Sedalia (MO) Democrat:

Quote:William James Huff, of Hamilton, and Georgie Huff, of Sedalia, will observe their 15th wedding anniversary on Tuesday.

Georgie Haack and William James Huff were married June 1, 1995, at the bride’s home in Sedalia, by the Rev. Bruce Campbell.

And he's a fire inspector too! From station KSBY in San Luis Obispo, we learn:

Quote:Captain Mark Mushinskie, Santa Barbara County Fire Department, said, "I can almost guarantee that we are going to have a lot of grass fires this year."

Bruce Campbell, Fire Inspector Engineer, said, "I do not like surprises. We're going to find enough surprises at the incident, something that is out of our control."

OK this is getting ridiculous!

And from the Vietnam-based Nhan Dan:
Quote:Empowering women key to combating climate change

“The disadvantages women often face – such as restricted access to resources and information and limited power in decision-making – make them more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change”, stressed Bruce Campbell, United Nations Population Fund Representatives in Vietnam.....

In Vietnam, there are more than 12 million female farmers. Their high dependency on land and natural resources for livelihood generation makes them vulnerable to the effects of climate change. It is a similar story for women whose livelihoods depend on fishing, according to Mr. Bruce Campbell

From the Inside Halton site:

Quote:The owner of a local car repair shop has been fined by the Ontario Ministry of Consumer Services.

Bruce Campbell of Mister Transmission on Fairview Street was fined a total of $20,000 as a result of an investigation by the ministry. The fines were levied in Burlington Provincial Offences Court on Nov. 3....
...

Campbell, the owner of the company, was convicted on charges of making false and misleading representations to a consumer, failing to provide a consumer with a valid estimate, failing to provide an invoice upon completion of repairs and failing to return to the consumer all parts removed from the vehicle during the repairs. A fine of $5,000 was imposed on each count for a total of $20,000.

Campbell was also ordered to pay compensation of $10,000 to the customer. In addition, he has been placed on 24 months probation and is restricted from operating any business that requires the payment of deposits before a job is completed.
