Utsler had survived 50 death-defying missions over Europe as a top turret gunner and flight engineer on a B-24 bomber crew.

FORT WORTH — People gathered on the scalding hot sidewalk around the Presbyterian Night Shelter have a keen interest in the thermostat.
“Can you please call time and temperature?” asked Claire Griffin, 41, spotting someone with a cellphone from under a blue umbrella that shielded her fair skin from the sun. “We get to go in if it hits 100.”
It’s actually the heat index that has to hit triple digits before the shelter opens its doors early. Inside, employees were hurriedly preparing for another rush of homeless people escaping what is already a sizzling summer, even by Texas standards.
The heat is already straining some shelter and relief agencies’ budgets and supplies. The night shelter’s electric bill is approaching $13,000 a month for all its campuses — an amount typically seen in August.
