The John Hobans of Duluth have mattered to the schools for a long time and will continue to do so. As the 59-year-old middle Hoban climbed the worn-down wooden steps of Old Central High School’s clock-and-bell tower earlier this spring, he spoke... He’s tended to their care for the past dozen years, having learned this special addition to his normal duties when he joined a lineage of Duluth timekeepers dating back to the clock’s installation in 1892. . “It’s a piece of Duluth history,” said... To get inside the tower, one has to walk through heavy fire doors and pass directly under Hoban’s father’s name — one of a multitude of students’ names written on the wooden railings, walls and beams throughout the graffitied tower. The names recall a time when students stole away to the now permanently closed tower. The names advance with the visitors, so as they hike up, they are also taken far back to a time when Duluth featured 20,000 students and 40 buildings. Next up are the translucent clock faces. Finally, the bells — 230 feet up. Commissioned at a time when the timber, rail and mining industries were taking off, the clock and chimes are from Boston’s E. Howard and Co. “They went all-out when they built it,” Hoban said.
Considering that Steve Martin delivered the “SNL 40” opening monologue in February, it is no surprise that Martin’s AFI Life Achievement Award had significant crossover with that cross-generational comedy homecoming earlier this year. Of the things TheWrap saw and heard at the event at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Thursday, start with Lorne Michaels seated at Martin’s side at the head table. The “Saturday Night Live” creator was wedged between Diane Keaton ( “Father of the Bride” ) and one of the honoree’s closest pals, Martin “Marty” Short. Fey’s opening speech, a clip from “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles,” Carl Reiner proving the provenance of his Jonny Carson tie with a close up of the “JC” initials, and Short’s roast of Martin got the loudest laughs. Martin Short’s Fan Club President: Jeff Garlin. During Short’s late-in-the-program takedown of his good buddy (sample lines: “Steve is so white, he looks like someone put a toupee on a urinal,” and Martin’s secret to “longevity in the entertainment industry is to look like you’re in your 70’s... Seated over Martin’s shoulder, Garlin’s laugh quakes will read on camera when the show airs June 13. Let’s Get Some Face Time.
