Teen program builds barn, confidence
Students test limits in hands-on project
By B.J. Roche, Globe Correspondent, 8/10/2003

=== <begin quote> ===

VERSHIRE, Vt. -- On a grassy hilltop outside of town, a crew of about 30 people stood one behind the other -- half on each side of a massive concrete foundation -- awaiting their orders.

"Quiet, please!" shouted the crew leader. Then: "One, two, three, pull!"

In concert, all began to pull the ropes on each side, hand over hand, and a 30-foot-tall "bent," or vertical timber frame, eased up into the sky. In a minute or two, the mammoth timbers settled handily onto small metal plates on the sides of the foundation.

"Slid like cake," a worker observed. Everyone cheered.

Barn-raisings are always a deft choreography of pulleys, pegs, and people power. But this one, last Tuesday morning on the 300-acre farm-campus of the Mountain School, was unusual. Working with the 25 professional timber framers were 90 high school students, 47 from Massachusetts, some with Mohawks crunched up under their yellow hard hats.

And they hadn't shown up just for the fun part. Under guidance from faculty members, students have helped build the school's new barn every step of the way, logging more than 3,000 hours of woodwork in the past year to prepare for the barn-raising. Indeed, said school director Alden Smith, it would not have happened without them.

"It took my breath away when I saw it go up," said Heidi Donahue, 17, a senior at Westborough High School. "I could see the post I worked on and found the joint I carved and chiseled out. It was like you knew you did something to contribute to this great event."

The project began two years ago, when school officials decided they needed a new barn to house the school's animals and hay supply. Then they tried to figure out how they could involve students.

At first, timber-framing specialists warned against the idea of placing such a big responsibility in the hands of teenagers, Smith said. Others, however, urged the school to give it a try. "We have a deep faith in the ability of teenagers, when mentored and well taught, to do important work," Smith said. "When you trust teens . . . they rise to the occasion."

That is how they do things at the Mountain School, founded in 1983 by Milton Academy in Massachusetts, and located outside the rural town of Vershire, a half-hour north of Hanover, N.H.

Each semester, a different group of 45 high-achieving juniors from private and public high schools nationwide -- including 12 Massachusetts students -- come here for a program that combines academics with experiential learning. They study the environment by observing it closely, and they study farming by doing it.

"What they're getting here is a kind of education that's rarely available today," Smith said. "Besides a demanding academic curriculum, our kids are involved in resource management in all areas: food production, water use, and energy use. We try to make what's invisible everywhere else visible here."

It is not an easy environment. There are no janitors at the Mountain School; students clean up after themselves. In addition to their regular academic work, they produce about 70 percent of the food they eat.

In the fall, students harvest a three-acre vegetable garden, make apple cider, and plant winter crops in the greenhouse, while also tending turkeys, chickens, and pigs. In spring, they make maple syrup, help with the birthing of lambs, and plant the garden that the next group of students will harvest. Teachers serve as mentors as well as instructors.

Smith said the school is a counterweight to a culture that conveys to teenagers that they are not needed, and steeps them in passive activities such as video games and television viewing. At the Mountain School, there's no television, not even a movie theater nearby. "Kids make their own fun," he said.

Hard work is expected, and everyone depends on everyone else: "If you don't shovel the wood chips, there's no hot water for showers," Smith said with a laugh.

While many experiential learning programs are for students struggling to succeed in traditional schools, Smith said the Mountain School program targets high-achieving students who are looking for a challenge.

They got it with the construction of the 56-by-56-foot barn, which is built entirely from wood -- down to the handmade pegs that hold the timbers together instead of nails and screws.

Last fall, the students trekked into the woods with a faculty member who is also a forester, to select the white pines for use in framing the building. They learned everything they could about timber framing and its history. Though most students had never held a saw or a chisel before, they learned to use hand tools to craft the 1,800 joints that comprised the five bents. They spent last weekend chiseling the ends of the 600 pegs used in the barn's construction.

Emma Clippinger, 17, of Cambridge, said the work was tough -- and not always enjoyable.

"At first, I had to admit I did not like it," said Clippinger, a senior at Milton Academy. "We were working on these huge beams, and the responsibility scared me. . . . But as we got into it and I saw what I was doing, I actually started to like it."

Tori Bishop, 17, will return to Cambridge Rindge and Latin this fall, but last week, she was sawing beams. She said it felt good to know that she helped build something that, barring a fire or disaster, could be standing in 200 years.

"I just can't believe that all the drilling of all those little mortises led to that," she said, pointing at the barn frame. "It's like Alden says, the barn is home-grown. The muscle it took to make it was grown on our land. It's cool that we made that happen."

=== <end quote> ===

Now if we could just get the government out of education, I think we would see amazing innovation in education. "No child left behind" results in every child left behind in a "one size fits all" mold. When will we recognize that people are better than that. Free them and stand back and be amazed at what they can produce. Hopefully, we will give and get the chance to amaze ourselves and others.

Reflect well on our alma mater, this week, every week, in any and every way possible, large or small. God bless.

A Day in the Life of ... Peter J. Denning

Name: Peter J. Denning
Title: Professor of Computer Science
University Coordinator for Process Reengineering
Company: George Mason University (GMU)

How I arrived at my present job (academic and other influences): My career has been devoted to helping others, especially young people, learn about computing, and anticipating people's needs through computing research. Around 1990, after 9 years with NASA, my wife and I, both academics at heart, moved east from California. We chose the Washington, DC, area because of its rich group of well-known universities and its proximity to the national government.

How I organize my day: My day begins at 5:00 with 90 minutes of stretching and exercise. I often work at home until 10am to avoid wasting half an hour in commuter traffic. I work in the office till 6:00pm, and use the evening for reading and relaxation, turning in around 11:30pm. I organize my actions around my commitments. I seldom fail to deliver a promise on time and I frequently say no to new requests that are not aligned with my commitments and missions.

Amount of time spent working daily (at home and office): 8-10 hours weekdays, another 10 hours weekends, for 50-60 total.

What I do to get myself thinking creatively: Read. Write. Engage in conversations with other people. It feels like I'm thinking creatively all the time.

My problem-solving strategy: Work simple examples. Build prototypes. Experiment. Make mistakes and learn from them. Request help from other people. Let my mind work on it in the background. Be patient, the solution will come. If the problem can't be solved immediately, renegotiate commitments with other people so that everyone knows what is going on and the pressure to solve the problem diminishes.

What I do to relieve stress: Daily meditative practice about 30 minutes. Breathing exercises. Prayer. Discussing concerns with other people. Avoiding commitments for which I do not have the capacity to deliver.

My hero, mentor, or person I most admire and why: There are many. My father and my mother. My daughters. Dorothy Denning, computer security expert extraordinaire and my wife. Pope John Paul, for his unwavering religious leadership. William Buckley, for his ability with words and intellectual leadership of political moderation. Martin Gardner, for his ability to communicate mathematics. Issac Asimov, for this prolific writings and wonderful story-telling. Jerry Saltzer, for his clear thinking about systems. David Parnas, for his clear thinking about software engineering. Maurice Wilkes, for his leadership in computer architecture. Richard Feynman, for his ability to communicate his love of science. Ralph Money, my high school math teacher, for his faith that I could invent great things. Robert Weil, my dean of engineering at Manhattan College, for encouraging me to go to MIT for graduate school when everyone else was discouraging me.

What I do to mentor those who work for me: Create situations in which they must "invent it for themselves". It's the philosophy of "give a man a fish, feed him for a day; teach him to fish, feed him for a lifetime." Demand honesty.

How a negative event changed my life in a positive way: I look for opportunities to learn from all events in life. The smallest events can have the most impact on my mood, so I look to them for the most learning. For example, I found myself cursing my memory for failing to put my car keys in my pocket before coming downstairs in the morning; so I moved the storage location of the keys downstairs. No more aggravation of forgetting and walking up two flights of stairs.

One event or decision in my life I wish I could go back and change: I have no regrets.

What values are the most important to me and what I value in others: Honesty. Willingness to share negative assessments that can endanger the team if left unspoken. Trustworthiness. Humility. Unpretentious. Managing promises and commitments.

What inspires, motivates, or gets me excited about my job on a daily basis: Expressions of gratitude from my students about what they have learned and what new actions they now can take.

Maureen MacDougall

Dr. MacDougall brings a variety of experiences to Foothill College. Born and raised in Yonkers, NY (a large suburb of New York City), she completed her B.S. in Biology at Manhattan College. Believing that her lack of farm experience might prevent her acceptance at a veterinary school, she chose to pursue an M.S. in Botany and Plant Physiology at Pennsylvania State University. After earning her Master's Degree there, she began work in molecular genetics, but the call to be a veterinarian was too strong. With much hard work and lots of volunteer veterinary activities, she was accepted to Purdue University, where she earned her D.V.M. degree in 1991.

Dr. MacDougall has worked in a variety of small animal hospitals in Indiana and California, and enjoys all aspects of general small animal practice. During her education at Purdue, she became very interested in teaching and the educational process, and is completing a Ph.D. in Education. The combination of these experiences serves her well as an instructor at Foothill College. Dr. MacDougall is also a private pilot, and loves flying in the Bay Area. She also enjoys hiking, playing the flute, and spending time with her family, which includes a number of two-legged, four legged and no-legged creatures.

Chemists at four pharmaceutical companies named Heroes for treating childhood conditions

Seventeen research chemists from four companies have been named Heroes of Chemistry by the American Chemical Society, the world's largest scientific society, for developing breakthrough treatments for childhood diseases and ailments.

Teams from Abbott Laboratories, Merck Research Laboratories, Pfizer Inc, and Wyeth Pharmaceuticals are being honored by the ACS for improving children's health and wellness by creating commercial products based on chemistry.

The teams will be honored as Heroes of Chemistry at the American Chemical Society's 226th national meeting in New York City on Sept. 7. This year's Heroes ceremony will recognize industrial chemists and chemical engineers who are improving children's health and wellness by creating commercial products based on chemistry.

"The broad range of invaluable products that our 2003 Heroes of Chemistry have developed and commercialized has dramatically advanced the health, well-being and lifestyles of children around the world," said ACS President Elsa Reichmanis, Ph.D. "The chemical advances made by the honorees serve as testimonials to the valuable role chemists and chemical engineers play in improving lives. It is with pride that the ACS recognizes them as Heroes of Chemistry."

The Heroes of Chemistry program will be held in conjunction with a celebration for the 80th anniversary of Chemical & Engineering News, the society's newsmagazine. Benjamin S. Carson, Sr., M.D., director of the Division of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University, will be the keynote speaker at the joint event. Carson has gained worldwide recognition as the principal surgeon in the separation of the conjoined Binder twins in Germany and, most recently, for his role in the separation of the Bijani twins from Iran.

The Heroes program, started in 1996 by the ACS, honors industrial chemists and chemical engineers who create commercially successful products that improve the quality of life. Each year Heroes of Chemistry are nominated by their own companies to recognize their talent, creativity and innovation within specific segments of the chemistry industry.

Abbott Laboratories, Abbott Park, Ill., developed Kaletra® (lopinavir/ritonavir), a unique antiretroviral agent used to treat HIV infection. The drug, which received simultaneous adult and pediatric approvals, is the first HIV protease inhibitor to receive Food and Drug Administration approval for use in children as young as six months old. Protease is an enzyme HIV uses in the final stages of its reproduction process. Kaletra has stopped progression of the virus and strengthened the immune systems of HIV-infected children, many of whom have not responded to other therapy.

Merck Research Laboratories, Kirkland, Canada, discovered and developed Singulair® to help control asthma in adults and children as young as 12 months. This year the FDA also approved the medication for the relief of symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis in patients two years and older. Singulair® works by blocking substances in the body called leukotrienes, an underlying cause of asthma and allergy symptoms.

Pfizer Inc, Ann Arbor, Mich., developed Neurontin®, an anticonvulsant used to treat childhood epilepsy. Epilepsy is common in children, with 75 percent of the cases developing before the age of 20. Neurontin® has no reactions with other drugs and this is significant since many children with epilepsy also have other conditions which require medication. The drug controls seizures and, because many children with epilepsy have normal cognition, they can live normal lives when the episodes subside

Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, Sanford, N.C., developed Prevnar® — the first pneumococcal conjugate vaccine to help protect infants and young children against invasive pneumococcal disease caused by seven common strains of Streptococcus pneumonia. Many have termed the introduction of the vaccine as the most important advance in pediatric medicine in the last decade. Prior to the introduction of Prevnar®, Streptococcus pneumoniae was a leading cause of meningitis, bacteremia, pneumonia and bacterial otitis media in young children. Pneumococcal disease can result in hearing loss, learning disabilities, speech and hearing problems and brain damage.

Far from the national spotlight, affirmative action quietly makes its mark

Sunday, August 17, 2003
By JENNA PORTNOY
The Express-Times

It's what everyone's talking about.

And it's what everyone's afraid to talk about.

The Bush administration wants to bury it, the Supreme Court is in favor of it (barely) and the University of Michigan is probably sick of hearing about it.

Love it or hate it, affirmative action in college admissions, hiring and housing has reshaped the nation since 1965.

The appearance of the workplace, schools and neighborhoods reflects gains made through a change in laws during the past 40 years. As a result, advocates say, people in your community are initiating a dialogue about race.

Lopatcong Township's Tyron Gillon is poised to start a local chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People in hopes of reaching out to blacks in the Phillipsburg area.

Having experienced discrimination on many levels, Northampton Community College graduate Susana Garcia aims to prove that gender, age and ethnicity are no reasons to hold people back.

Their plights are especially significant in light of recent controversies, which have put under the microscope mandates that allow minorities opportunities to compete with whites in all arenas.

Former New York Times reporter Jayson Blair falsified and plagiarized facts in dozens of articles published in the widely regarded newspaper of record.

His actions eroded readers' trust in journalists and rocked the field. To make matters worse for affirmative action supporters, Blair is black.

Critics say Blair's shortcomings were ignored in the interest of creating a diverse newsroom and image. They wonder if a white journalist would have been given so many second chances.

Others say it's unfair to use Blair as an example of why affirmative action doesn't work.

The Blair story broke several months after President Bush railed against what he called preferential treatment.

The Associated Press quoted Bush calling the University of Michigan's program for reviewing minority applications "divisive, unfair and impossible to square with the Constitution." Bush made the statements Jan. 15, the birthday of civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.

Another racially loaded issue could come to a head Oct. 7 when Californians vote whether to recall Gov. Gray Davis.

Proposition 54, a ballot measure that will be voted on the same day, is almost invisible, given how much attention is focused on the unprecedented 100-plus candidates seeking Davis' seat. Prop 54 proposes a constitutional amendment banning the government from collecting racial data.

If passed, the measure would drop the race category from government forms and forbid agencies from classifying students, contractors or employees by race, ethnicity, color or national origin.

Proponents of the colorblind system say the measure favors the equality of all people.

Opponents say it is a setback for equal rights.

Affirmative action and the Civil Rights Act

In 1964, when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which established the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to enforce the act's employment provisions, he probably didn't expect such controversies to still be brewing 30 years later.

Shortly after his landslide victory, Johnson issued an executive order giving the Department of Labor the primary responsibility for enforcing affirmative action.

The department created the Office of Federal Contract Compliance to assure that federal contractors took affirmative steps to hire and promote minority employees and use more minority-owned contractors.

Johnson used anti-caste logic to rationalize the moves: "You do not take a person who for years has been hobbled by chains and liberate him, bring him up to the starting line of a race and then say, 'You're free to compete with others,' and still justly believe that you have been completely fair."

His stance wasn't perceived as radical at the time, said Helena Silverstein, who teaches a 14th Amendment course at Lafayette College. Initial efforts were instituted in response to a clear history of recent racial discrimination, the associate professor said.

Eventually, affirmative action expanded to protect women, the disabled and people of different cultural and ethnic groups. Gay-rights activist groups are now seeking protection under the 14th Amendment equal opportunity umbrella.

Courts prescribed affirmative action to organizations as a way of fixing past forms of discrimination, Silverstein said. Set-asides, or quotas, are still considered constitutional if the policies are "narrowly tailored" to satisfy a "compelling governmental interest," such as remedying past indiscretions.

The Supreme Court in June upheld those standards in two landmark decisions that put the University Michigan to task.

In the undergraduate case, Gratz v. Bollinger, the court ruled, 6 to 3, that racial preferences could be used in admissions, but that the school's mechanical, point-based approach was not "narrowly tailored" to achieve the goal of a diverse student body.

The decision forced some large schools to re-evaluate their methods for judging minority students.

Many smaller schools, however, use a different system employed by University of Michigan's law school, which measures students' attributes subjectively.

In Grutter v. Bollinger, the high court ruled, 5 to 4, that the law school's efforts to maintain a "critical mass" of minority students did not amount to using an illegal quota.

Companies and organizations submitted briefs to the court applauding affirmative action as an effective way to achieve diversity. For example, a paper submitted on behalf of the Armed Forces stated that without such policies there would be fewer minorities in positions of authority in the military and that could cause structure and morale problems.

The choice shouldn't come down to race

John Stephenson, a college junior who volunteered for U.S. Rep. Pat Toomey, R-Lehigh Valley, last fall, can see both sides of the debate.

"Conservatives are opposed because it essentially is a violation of the 14th Amendment, using race to advance one group over another," said the 21-year-old former vice president of the Lafayette College Republicans.

Although Stephenson, who attended a diverse Quaker high school in Philadelphia, said he hasn't formed a definite opinion about affirmative action, he knows he wants to be judged on objective factors.

"Certainly I've worked very hard in academics," he said. "I want to be judged on academics."

Silverstein, who has taught Stephenson, said many students believe merit is based on seemingly objective, universal standards, such as SAT scores. They say the choice between two equally qualified candidates shouldn't come down to race or gender.

What many fail to realize, however, is that the perspective a minority student may bring to the classroom outweighs his or her grade-point average.

"There's a myth about merit," Silverstein said. "Affirmative action often gets a bad name because there is such a strong myth about merit."

A student who gains admission thanks to a strong arm or quick sprinting ability, but who has sub-par grades, is rarely questioned.

But when a school accepts a student of a diverse background with lesser test scores, knowing that student has a lot to contribute, some cry reverse discrimination.

A Latina nurse-to-be beats discrimination

Susana Garcia doesn't want to see minorities receive targeted attention -- unless they deserve it.

When faced with the choice between two female candidates, should an employer or school choose the Latina over the white woman? Garcia says it's not that simple.

"If she's more trained, qualified, she should get it but not because of her color," Garcia said. "You need help. No one did believe that I was capable of doing what I was."

While earning an associate's degree in general education at NCC's Monroe Campus, Garcia started the Multicultural Club to encourage interaction among students of diverse backgrounds.

At first, the 39-year-old was afraid her status as an adult student would negatively set her apart. She is the mother of four children ages 5 to 17. But she felt comfortable with the nontraditional student body.

It wasn't until she tried to place out of English literature class that she had a distasteful experience. An adviser told her the placement test would be difficult and she might have better luck in Spanish. Meanwhile, a white friend of hers, who had no background in literature, was recommended to take the test.

Garcia, who was born in Cuba but moved to the United States when she was 4, understands conversational Spanish but can't read or write the language well.

"I was beyond hurt," she said. "I was hysterically crying. Because you see I don't look Hispanic, I look European."

A self-described "rabble-rouser and bigmouth," Garcia was determined not to let people judge her based on her last name and heritage. Instead of filing a formal complaint, Garcia followed the advice of a counselor at the college.

"As I walk out of my secure realm, I'm going to experience things like this," she said. "I should prove them wrong by showing them I can do it."

Now a junior at East Stroudsburg University pursuing a nursing degree, Garcia is older than most of her classmates. She's also learning that future patients may refuse to let her treat them because she is not a white man.

"The higher I go, the worse it gets for me," she said.

Tyrone Gillon wants Phillipsburg's black population to have a place to go if they feel wronged, like Garcia has.

His family is spearheading the formation of a local chapter of the NAACP. In June, members of the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network called town officials racist for their treatment of Gillon's real estate initiatives.

Gillon and his wife, Kerry, own Community Property Resources, a company that purchases and redevelops blighted properties and resells them to families looking for homes.

The Gillons purchased tax-sale certificates for a three-story commercial and apartment building at 375 Memorial Parkway.

When they attempted to redeem the certificates by offering to pay the town about $150,000 in back taxes, they were told the town had already foreclosed on the building and is obligated to sell it in a public auction.

"I'm finding that a lot of doors are being shut to minorities," said Tyrone Gillon, who is the father of five children, ages 10 to 23. "I intend to take this as far as necessary to make sure anyone that comes after me doesn't experience the same thing."

Instead of packing his bags and leaving town in favor of a place more open to other races, Gillon said he's not going anywhere: "If I pack up, it's only to move into a house in the heart of Phillipsburg."

That determined attitude has influenced daughter Mahasin Pegeise.

Last year she graduated from Manhattan College, which she described as a predominantly white private school peppered with minority athletes.

"I'm sure what helped me get into school was a track scholarship," Pegeise said. "Did affirmative action have something to do with it? I'm not privy to that information. If it did, I thank God for it."

She hopes a local chapter of the NAACP will foster communication because "there's not much we can do with walls."

Except?

"Except take them down."

[JR: I reproduced the whole article because I was shocked by the description and the lack of any kind of positive attribution to the College for their confidence in her abilities. Coming from the time when it was really a bastion of the white male, any time I have been on campus I have seen predominantly women and minorities.]

Hall of Fame coach guided Kansas State to 1934 Big Six championship, but his legacy was built while guiding Cal to dominance

Pappy: Lone K-State coach to win league

Pappy's Boys may be loosely based out of California, but the caretaker of the group is well-versed on its namesake's vast scope of influence.

"I've been to your arena there at Kansas State, was just there last year, and saw Pappy's picture among those on the wall,'' boasted Dick Erickson.

While Erickson, one of the first football players to play under Lynn O. "Pappy'' Waldorf at Cal, is certainly knowledgable of his old coach, he had an in at K-State. Erickson's daughter, Hildie Brooks, is a middle school teacher in Manhattan, and her husband, Kenneth, is a landscape architecture professor at K-State.

Erickson visits Manhattan quite often, actually. But without the kind of connection he has through his family, it would be easy to overlook the brief, but glorious, impact Waldorf had at Kansas State, where he coached in 1934 and guided the Wildcats to the Big Six championship.

At California, Pappy's imprint is legendary.

It is preserved by Pappy's Boys, a collection of his former players who not only reunite each season to swap stories, but have established a $400,000 endowment for football scholarships.

No one could have predicted that kind of legacy would endure when Waldorf arrived in Berkeley in 1947. He was Cal's fourth coach in as many years when he accepted a $13,500 annual salary to leave Northwestern. Yet Waldorf quickly led the '48, '49 and '50 Cal teams to consecutive Rose Bowl appearances and went 39-3-1 during that stretch.

Since then, the Bears have returned to the Rose Bowl once.

No wonder, then, Waldorf is so revered to this day.

"There's a beautiful statue of him on campus and I made sure and had my picture taken with it when I interviewed for the coaching job there,'' said Ron Hudson, the former K-State offensive coordinator whose father, Doc, was the longtime rugby coach at Cal.

"Pappy was my dad's best friend,'' Hudson recalled. "He used to come out to the house. A really nice man. He was the dean of all coaches. I mean, he was the man.''

Still is, in some respects.

One football observer on the West Coast, giddy over the hiring of Oregon's promising offensive coordinator last year, called Jeff Tedford, "Cal's first legacy coach since Pappy Waldorf.''

Tonight, that legacy can be traced to both sides as K-State and Cal meet for the first time in football.

It's somewhat fitting the game is in Arrowhead Stadium. Some of the men who work there remember Waldorf's booming baritone quite vividly.

"Having grown up in the Bay Area, I'd known his teams,'' said Kansas City Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil. "In fact, I have an old Cal Bears helmet from when he was coaching the team, an old leather one.''

Without hesitation, Vermeil began rolling off the names of heroes who led Cal to their Rose Bowl appearances, greats such as Rod Franz, Bob Celeri, Jim Monachino, Johnny Olszewski, Pete Schabarum and Jackie Jensen.

"I grew up listening to the radio on Saturdays with those guys playing games and Pappy Waldorf was sort of the symbol of excellence,'' Vermeil said. "I met him later when he was an NFL scout. Big, jolly, chubby guy, loved to smile and talk football.''

One of Vermeil's assistants, Mike White, has an even keener memory of Waldorf. White played for Cal at the end of Waldorf's 10-year run there.

"I was fortunate to have the opportunity to play for him, but college football was sort of in a transitional period,'' White said. "Pappy's success was the traditional Midwest three yards and a cloud of dust football. When I came to Cal, Pappy was definitely on his last years.''

Waldorf tried to adapt with more open formations and made White a split end. But the Thursday before "The Big Game'' against Stanford in 1956, Waldorf told his team he was retiring. Cal jumped to a 20-point lead, then held on for a 20-18 victory --- a fitting sendoff for Waldorf, who was just 54 when he left coaching.

"He was such a symbol, he was sort of ageless,'' White said. "What he represented, he was so respected by everybody, you really didn't put an age on him.''

That respect helped break down barriers that existed between college traditionalists and the pro scouts assessing young talent. Waldorf, an avid bird watcher, often scheduled scouting trips to coincide with migration patterns in various parts of the country. His wife, Louise, whom Waldorf met while he was an assistant coach at Kansas, usually accompanied him on trips.

"When Pappy was with the 49ers, he made scouting legitimate and was actually invited by college coaches,'' Erickson said. "Woody Hayes never let someone from the NFL watch his players, but when Pappy came in, Woody picked him up at the airport.''

A bigger crowd greeted Waldorf in 1934 when he arrived at Kansas State upon the recommendation of outgoing coach Bo McMillin, who had left to take over at Indiana.

According to "Pappy, The Gentle Bear,'' a biography on Waldorf, a rally celebrating Waldorf's arrival at K-State drew 2,000 shivering, yet delirious, fans. Three bands led a 45-minute parade from campus to the center of Manhattan. The festivity was broadcast throughout the state.

While the season Lynn Waldorf spent at Kansas State (the nickname Pappy was stuck on him later by a Northwestern assistant) is not the watershed to his coaching career, it is by no means insignificant.

The 1934 squad remains the only conference champion K-State has fielded in football. The Wildcats went 5-0 in the Big Six after their 7-2-1 season began with a cultural adventure.

"I took a 26-man squad on a two-week East Coast road trip by rail, and for practically all those Kansas kids, it was the first time they'd been outside the state,'' said Waldorf, who came to K-State from Oklahoma A&M.

Oren Stoner was a star halfback on the '34 team who died this past spring just after his induction into the K-State Sports Hall of Fame. He remembered his new coach's brief influence this way: "Waldorf was a slow, easy going, very well-spoken man. When he said something, you knew it meant something.''

A 13-13 tie against Manhattan College at Ebbets Field earned K-State the respect of New York sports writers. It then traveled to Milwaukee to play Marquette and fell behind 27-0, only to forge a gallant comeback before falling 27-20. The trip helped shape Waldorf's inexperienced team, which closed the season on Thanksgiving before a sellout crowd at Nebraska.

"Two games in one,'' Waldorf was quoted. "Nebraska went up and down the field all afternoon, and how they scored only seven points, I'll never know. Then, with seven minutes left in the third quarter, it was if you drew a curtain, then the next act and a new game began.''

Indeed, K-State overcame a 7-0 halftime deficit with three touchdowns to prevail 19-7. It was estimated that 2,000 Wildcat fans made the trip and most descended on the field to tear down Nebraska's goal posts.

Among those who observed the scene was Northwestern athletic director Tug Wilson, who hoped to lure Waldorf as his coach.

The mission wasn't altogether difficult. Despite Waldorf's overwhelming support at K-State, the Big Ten was too appealing. That, plus a Chicago clergyman, Bishop Ernest Waldorf, sat on Northwestern's board of directors and had put a bug in Wilson's ear about his son, Pappy.

Who knows how K-State would have fared had Waldorf stayed as coach. One of his closest friends, Wes Fry, took over and coached K-State the next five seasons, going 18-21-6 before eventually hooking up with Waldorf again at Cal.

No K-State coach since Fry came close to his winning percentage until Bill Snyder took over in 1989. This season, Snyder's team is expected to contend for the Big 12 title and has an important trip to Nebraska scheduled late in the season.

Shades of '34 perhaps? It's not something Snyder will predict, though he too is aware of Waldorf's football legacy.

"His daughter sent me a book that was written by Pappy Waldorf at one time and I've read a little bit of that,'' Snyder said. "But I don't know too much about him except that he was a talented man.''

Subject: e-mail address of John R. Goll

Dear Mr. Reinke,

   In the Jasper Jottings, you published a note that John R. Goll was trying to contact me, but his e-mail address did not appear in the message.  Could you send it to me or forward this message to him.

   I would also like to announce that the decision from the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit arrived on August 15.  It was exactly as I expected.  Since 1989, this court has rendered 71 decisions in favor of the larcenous agencies and 0 decisions in favor of whistleblowers.  It has never ruled in favor of a veteran, and to date, the Supreme Court has never agreed to review any decision involving whistleblowers or veterans.  That is why theft and perjury are rampant in the Federal civil service, and the whistleblowers who report it are fired and blacklisted.  The bosses are above the law, and they can never be fired as long as they all stick together and out elected politicians remain the craven creatures that they are.  It is a lot worse than it was in 1981, when the Justice Department estimated that 10% of the entire Federal budget was being lost through fraud.

   With regard to the laws and facts, the decision states only "The case involves an extensive factual background, whish is laid out in great detail in the initial decision.  ... For purposes of this opinion, a restatement of those facts is unnecessary."  The initial decision is a long series of errors in fact and misapplication of the law, with the administrative law judge acting as the attorney for the Forest Service.  To cover up the moral turpitude of the judges, there is a stamp at the top of the first page to say that "this disposition is not citable as precedent."  That means that there is one interpretation of the law for me and another for "important people."

   For over a year, I have been active in A Matter of Justice Coalition, which seeks a major reform of the courts.  The right under the Seventh Amendment to trial by jury in civil matters is completely ignored.  I had this lawsuit and have two others pending for several years, and there is still no date for any jury trial, and there may never be.  It is too easy for government agencies to fix the outcome with the judge.

   Thank you for getting the message to me.

Sincerely,
Charles W. Heckman

Well, John, here's a head start. I listed the 10 people in MCOLDB with Charlotte addresses.

(As an aside, I have a good friend in Charlotte who works for IBM who is a U of Md fanatic. The school has a group that goes to bball and fball games. (And, contributes.) Amazing, that we can't generate that type of school spirit.)

Anyway, I would suggest that if you are really serious. That you plan the first kick off event. Give me enough notice, and maybe I can come. You can give away a copy of the first few Jasper Jottings signed by the "collector in chief". (Even if I can't come, I'll donate that to the effort.

The journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. Email a personal note, follow up with a letter, and then a phone call. Check the athletic schedules for events in your area. Men's or women's. It's just an excuse to get together and swap old war stories.

IMHO,
John'68

John,

Great job.  Please sign me up.

I was at the Jasper Basketball Club "Coaches Roundtable Dinner last evening.  Looks like we will have another great season with some fine incoming player along with transfer Peter Mulligan.  However, we will have a tough schedule including non-conference games with Columbia (Westchester County Center),  home games with Fordham & Wichita State, Richmond @MSG and Holy Cross in the first round of the Holiday Festival ( Other game St. Johns's and Penn) and Hofstra.  We also have a rematch with Syracuse at the Carrier Center and have been invited to play in the Bracket Buster weekend on ESPN.  The Bracket Buster consists of 8 of the top mid-major teams.  The opponent and location has not been determined at this time.

Let's get out and support our team!

Regards,
Tom

FINAL WORDS THIS WEEK

http://www.sierratimes.com/03/08/26/raythomas.htm

ANOTHER MASSIVE NEW ENTITLEMENT

=== <begin quote> ===

I'm an old man. I spend more than $200 a month on medicine I am going to have to take for the rest of my life, just to keep me going longer. A fund that forced other people to pay for that would be nice, wouldn't it? Forcing other people to pay your bills is nice, isn't it? Unless you figure out that doing that is stealing from them to pay you. You have no right to demand that other people pay for your medicine, but that's what the politicians want to do, even while we're looking at a deficit they created. So they want to make that deficit bigger by creating the biggest new entitlement "in the history of the world." As happened the day Medicare went into effect, this drug program will put us billions of dollars further into debt, that day. I'll repeat that: that day! You will be paying for the medicine of all Americans, and your children and grandchildren will be paying for yours -- and everybody else's in the country.

The more of such entitlements they add, the less money you get to keep, because it's just one more tax level on the same money on which they force you to pay all these other taxes. Stop just "keeping mum" and allowing this government to pile on tax after tax. If you do, the day will come when they take 100% of your income and support you completely. When that day comes, you will be a slave. Don't believe it? Just you wait.

Yet another "entitlement", that takes away from 75% of the seniors their prescription benefit associated with their retirement, to give "post office" like service, similar to Medicare medicine, at a cost to our nation of an estimate 10 Billion dollars. Whatta joke. Where in the Constitution does it say that the government is supposed to be our nanny? Old Jaspers should be smart enough to know there is no free lunch!
