    Apr 23, 2009

  • Thirty-five years later

    Apr 23, 2009

    I wasn't very old in April of 1974, but it made a heck-of-an impression on me. That was the year I added the word "tornado" to my vocabulary. It is remembered as "the year of the great tornado outbreak" because of the 148 tornados that were spawned in 13 states over a 16 hour period. I was too young to understand anything but, "hide from the wind." End: There are countless emergency situations that can arise, and when one community is called to help another the best possible scenario is that everyone involved took the time to be prepared.

  • Commentary - small measures can yield big energy savings

    Apr 17, 2009

    We take energy for granted. When you flip the switch, the lights come on. When the thermostat reaches the red line, you hear the hum of a distant fan and warm air blows out of the grate. For much of the world's population - and even for parts of the U.S. - that isn't the way it is. Energy is a limited commodity. There is only so much to go around in any area. When demand exceeds production, something has to give. In many places that means almost daily "brown outs," where the flow of electricity is intermittent or irregular.

Sometimes you have to battle everyday to excel in your career. Such is the case with Staff Sgt. David Miron of the NCO Academy who battles a stammer when he speaks. It's something he has been dealing with since childhood and something he refuses to let stop him from achieving his goal in the Army and in life.
