NEW YORK (AP) – Within five months of each other, two of the men who helped make “60 Minutes” the most distinctive news show on television have died. First it was A ndy Rooney, the cantankerous commentator who died last November, a month after delivering the last of his show-closing essays. Late Saturday night, it was Mike Wallace, the hard-charging interviewer who frequently led “60 Minutes” and gave it journalistic heft with a showman’s flair. Rooney made it to age AP/BEBETO MATTHEWS Mike Wallace, longtime CBS “60 Minutes” correspondent famed for his tough interviews, died Saturday. He was 93. 92. Wallace beat him by a year, although he spent the latter stage of his life in the New Canaan, Conn., care facility where he died. “More than anyone else he was responsible for the continuing success of ‘60 Minutes,’” veteran correspondent Morley Safer, a longtime colleague and frequent competitor of Wallace’s in chasing after big stories, said on Sunday’s show. “We are all in his debt.” “60 Minutes” plans an extended tribute to Wallace next Sunday. Wallace had such a fearsome reputation as an interviewer that “Mike Wallace is here to see you” were among t he most dreaded words a newsmaker could hear. Wallace didn’t just interview people. He interrogated them. He cross-examined them. Sometimes he eviscerated them pitilessly. His weapons were many: thorough research, a cocked eyebrow, a skeptical “Come on” See WALLACE, A2 March shatters heat records Frankfort Fac: Norman “Bubby” Moore Temps 8.6 degrees above normal BY SETH BORENSTEIN AP SCIENCE WRITER his wife at 18. Now, decades later, those things still fill up his days. Bubby, 68, runs Moore’s Cycle Shop from the garage beside his home off Sheep Pen Road, a place he calls the “oldest mom and pop shop around.” “Pop” is Bubby, of course, and “mom” is Polly, his wife of WASHINGTON (AP) – It’s been so warm in the United States this year, especially in March, that national records weren’t just broken, they were deep-fried. Temperatures in the lower 48 states were 8.6 degrees above normal for March and 6 degrees higher than average for the fi rst three months of the year, according to calculations by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. That far exceeds the old records. The magnitude of how unusual the year has been in the U.S. has alarmed some meteorologists who have warned about global warming. One climate scientist said it’s the weather equivalent of a baseball player on steroids, with old records obliterated. “Everybody has this uneasy feeling. This is weird. This is not good,” said Jerry Meehl, a climate scientist who specializes in extreme weather at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo. “It’s a guilty pleasure. You’re out enjoying this nice March weather, but you know it’s not a good thing.” It’s not just March. “It’s been ongoing for several See BUBBY, A7 See HEAT, A7 TRICIA SPAULDING/SPAULDING@STATE-JOURNAL.COM Norman “Bubby” Moore sits outside Moore’s Cycle shop on his Franklin County property.
