Vicki Viers may not have been world famous for 15 minutes but she did double the amount of time to be famous Saturday night on the HGTV program “House Hunters.”

Viers co-owns and brokers, along with Rita Sjostedt, Select Properties Realty in Parkersburg. Saturday’s half-hour-long episode featured Brian, 40, and Jennifer Haught, 43, as the couple, along with their three children, Baylorm 14, Harbor, 12, and Annabelle, 10, who searched for a Victorian-style home in the Williamstown area. The couple was looking for a home with Brian’s desire of a waterfront view of the Ohio River.

Out of three homes, the Haughts found what was not exactly a “dream home,” but a major fixer-upper at 406 West Fourth St. in Williamstown. “A lot of the homes around here are move-in ready,” she said. “Every once in a while, you have one that’s not.”

For three days, Viers spent 10 hours a day with a crew from the Los Angeles area at the three houses. Just getting an opportunity to have an episode is a win in itself.

Canton native pens ultimate ‘Partridge Family’ fan book

“When We’re Singin’“: The Partridge Family & Their Music” is a whopping 468-page hardcover volume with 64 color pages of rare photos, magazine and album covers and fan-collected memorabilia from the Partridge’s 1970s heyday.

John Miller remembers his discovery of “The Partridge Family” as if it were yesterday.

He was 8 years old when he walked in on his parents watching the ABC-TV series and instantly he became glued to the TV. “When they sang is when it really got me captivated,” Miller said.

A student at Whipple Elementary School, Miller would tape Partridge Family songs from the TV set with his tape recorder, eventually persuading his mother to buy him a Partridge Family album at the Clarkins store on Route 62.

The Partridges, that fictional family band led by David Cassidy, “became a lifelong obsession, and it all started in Canton,” Miller said.

PARTRIDGE FAMILY: DID YOU KNOW?

--More than 50 songwriters wrote for the Partridge Family, including Paul Anka, Rupert Holmes, Gerry Goffin, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.

As Us Weekly confirmed with Cassidy’s rep, the legendary 66-year-old actor and musician is battling dementia.

The star revealed the devastating news to People on February 20, after he slurred his words, forgot his lyrics and almost fell off the stage during a performance in California on Saturday.

“I was in denial, but part of me always knew this was coming,” he told the magazine, adding that his grandfather and mother both battled dementia.

Cassidy told the audience at the show, that he was retiring and many fans feared the teen idol, who has had many stints in rehab and a number of DUI’s, was drunk during the show.

But Cassidy revealed the truth to People adding that he was retiring to focus on his health.

MLB History: Commissioner Landis Bans Boxing for Current Players

Before MLB salaries exploded, baseball players would need to work other jobs to make ends meet. While most would work other mundane jobs, a few would dabble in other sports. On this day in 1930, Commssioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis banned players from boxing.

In the early days of baseball, there are quite a few stories of MLB players working other jobs. Even the stars, such Yogi Berra and Phil Rizzuto, worked in department stores or other assorted locations. There were also a few that tried their hands at other sports, and even excelled, like Dave DeBusschere, who became a Hall of Fame player in the NBA.

Of course, some players would gravitate towards other sports or professions that would be seemingly hazardous. One of those was Chicago White Sox first baseman Art Shires, a decent hitting player who also made his mark on the field with his fists, having punched out his manager, Lena Blackburn, and two hotel detectives at the end of the 1929 season.
