Coronado’s Ted Henry Featured In Netflix Documentary

Ted Henry, his wife Jody, and yours truly are all members of the Coronado Library’s Mystery Book Club which meets monthly and is moderated by Principal Librarian Franklin Escobedo. A typical meeting includes 30 minutes of discussion about the assigned book and 30 minutes of extemporaneous conversation that runs the gamut of topics. Most of the regulars have been around a while and it’s a fun group.At some point over the years Ted Henry noted that he had been a journalist on a television station in Cleveland, Ohio for a number of years. My wife Sharon grew up in Akron and via visits to the area I have acquired some limited knowledge of the Northeast Ohio area. So it wasn’t a total surprise that Ted plays a major role in the five-part documentary series entitled “The Devil Next Door,” which I hasten to add doesn’t refer to Henry. Instead the series is based on the trials of accused Nazi war criminal Jan Demjanjuk, who settled in Cleveland after World War II and was a married auto worker with three children. Specifically Demjanjuk was charged with being the notorious “Ivan the Terrible,” who was in charge of the Treblinka death camps. Virtually everything in Ted Henry, Jr.’s educational and work background led to his expert coverage of the Demjanjuk trials, and the related story of the Fall of the Berlin Wall.

Rotary Santa To Make Local Deliveries: New Gift Drop-Off Location At Douglas Elliman Real Estate
Updated: December 05, 2019 - 11:02 am

Once again Santa Claus will make his traditional visit to Coronado homes on Christmas Eve, Tuesday, December 24 from 5 p.m. to approximately 7:30 p.m. to deliver presents to local girls and boys.

In years past, gifts have been dropped off at the Fire Department. However, because the Fire Department no longer has enough space or personnel to handle the large quantity of gifts, a change had to be made. This year, gifts should be dropped off at Douglas Elliman Real Estate.

Assisted by members of the Rotary Club of Coronado, Jolly Old St. Nicholas asks parents, grandparents and guardians to drop off their presents at Douglas Elliman Real Estate, 1033 B Avenue, Suite 303, between Monday, Dec. 9 and Friday, Dec.
