Poetic Obituaries: The title he [Norman Kaye] wore

with most pride may have been his 37 years as the state's poet laureate. The Nevada Arts Council endured a public relations sting in 2004 when it moved to change Kaye's title to that of "emeritus" and find a more contemporary poet laureate.

Kaye also took pride in composing "Throw a Dime My Way," which became the theme song for the International March of Dimes. Another composition, "Have a Heart, Lend a Hand," was the theme for the Variety Clubs International.
