Soul singer Dee Dee Warwick, 63, who won recognition for both her solo work and her performances with her older sister Dionne Warwick, has died. Warwick died Saturday at a nursing home in Essex County, N.J., said Kevin Sasaki, a family spokesman. She had been in failing health in recent months. Warwick had several hits in the 1960s and '70s, including "Foolish Fool," "She Didn't Know (She Kept on Talking)" and a version of "I'm Gonna Make You Love Me" that was later covered by Diana Ross and the Supremes. Warwick also was a two-time Grammy Award nominee and sang backup for Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett and others before starting her solo career.
Jack Narz, 85, a longtime game show host who was an early victim of the quiz show scandals of the 1950s when a show he was hosting was canceled, has died.

Among the shows he hosted over the years were "Video Village," which began in 1960, "Seven Keys," 1961, "I'll Bet," 1963, and "Now You See It," 1974, according to the book "TV Game Shows!" by Maxene Fabe. Former U.S. Rep. Paul G. Rogers, 87, a Democrat who earned the nickname "Mr. Health" for his work on environmental and health care legislation, has died. Rogers died Oct. 13 at a rehabilitation hospital in Washington, said his brother, Doyle Rogers. He had recently undergone an operation for lung cancer. "He was a very popular congressman," Doyle Rogers said. Elected in Florida to fill a seat left vacant by his father's death, Paul Rogers served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1955 to 1979.
