One Way or Another

“If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity
it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold your head high,
look it squarely in eye and say, 'I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.'”

- Ann Landers (Esther "Eppie" Pauline Friedman Lederer)
(04 July 1918 - 22 June 2002)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Your income taxes must be filed tonight by midnight.  I do hope you have them finished or at least filed for an extension, because one way or another.....

BONUS - - One Way or Another - Blondie, 1979


"One Way or Another" is a song by American New Wave band Blondie.

Written by Debbie Harry and Nigel Harrison for the band's third studio album, Parallel Lines (1978), the song was inspired by one of Harry's ex-boyfriends who stalked her after their break up[1]. The song was released as a single in the US as the follow-up to "Heart of Glass". "One Way or Another" reached number twenty-four in the Billboard Hot 100. Although never officially released as a single in the United Kingdom and other countries, the song remains one of the group's most popular songs worldwide. Rolling Stone ranked the song #298 on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[2]

The song was included on the US and Canadian versions of the band's first hits compilation, The Best of Blondie (1981), but not on international releases...



... The due date for 2010 individual federal income tax returns will be Monday, April 18, 2011.

Traditionally, Tax Day falls on April 15 unless that day happens to be on a Saturday, Sunday or federal holiday. In 2011, April 15 meets none of those criteria -- it falls on a Friday, and there's no federal holiday that day.

So what's the deal? In 2011, Washington, D.C., will celebrate Emancipation Day on April 15, a day earlier than normal, since April 16 falls on a Saturday. Emancipation Day marks the anniversary of the day that President Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act. The Act, which was "for the release of certain persons held to service or labor in the District of Columbia," freed 3,100 slaves in the District, making DC residents the "first freed" by the federal government. In 2005, Emancipation Day was made an official public holiday in the District of Columbia.

In observance of the DC holiday, Tax Day will be moved forward one business day, this year landing it on Monday, April 18. That's the date your form has to be either submitted electronically or postmarked by for your tax return to be considered timely filed by the IRS.

Don't be fooled into believing that the day moves all individual federal income tax deadlines forward. The overseas exception due date will still be June 15, 2011. However, individual federal income tax returns on a "normal" extension will be due on Monday, Oct.17, 2011; that's because Oct. 15, 2011, (the regular extension due date) falls on a Saturday.


   Passover begins tonight at sundown.  We'll have more on this subject tomorrow.


1.   Geneva Cole Lauterbach ('65) of Fayetteville, NC via      Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 04/18/11, 9:21 AM (via Geneva's daughter-in-law and next-door neighbor), Misty:
Geneva is fine. We live next door to her. Tornado came by right outside of our neighborhood. We were without power for almost 20 hours. but we are all ok.

2.       My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of Fayetteville, NC:
   Eleanor was also without power for those same 20 hours (Saturday at 4:00 PM to noon on Sunday), but suffered no damage to herself, her home, or property - and typically was out running around as though all was well and life should continue on as though nothing whatsoever had happened!

3.      Charis Bean Duke (Governor Thomas Johnson HS, MD - '85) of Fayetteville, NC:
   I didn't speak with Charis directly, but her family is safe and Eleanor thinks that her property is as well.  She is, however, experiencing high levels of frustration as the Easter Fireside (a musical cantata-like event which Charis was directing) - scheduled for last night - was postponed and no date has yet been reset for it.  Coupled with the fact that those weeks of planning and practicing may well have been for naught, is the "lovely" problem of "you can't get there from here" is rampant.

4.   Joe Mansfield (Stanton College Prep School, FL - 2002) AND Megan Fulmer Mansfield (Marshall HS, TX - 2002) of Fayetteville, NC - also known as our children by other parents:
     Joe and Megan and their three sweet little angels live out in a section of the county which sustained no damage or power outages.  When I spoke with him Sunday afternoon, Joe was typically calling on everyone else and arranging and attending to their needs and repairs.

   He neglected to tell "his mama" that he was promoted to Captain two weeks ago.   
Congratulations, Cute Stuff!

December 2010
Katelyn, Megan, Joe, Jonathan and Jacob Mansfield

5.   Ann Allen ('65) of NC:
   Still no word; I'll call her later today to check on her.....

6.     From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 04/18/11, 9:21 AM:
Check out the Daily Press for pics etc. for local damage. One of the tornados came down in Gloucester. A lot of damage including 3 deaths. A fairly new (20 year old or so) middle school is badly damaged.

Hope this help keeps those who not in the area informed.


   Thank you so much, Joan - for everything!



Gloucester, other areas try to recover following devastating storms

For much of Sunday, parts of the region resembled a war-zone.

The path of a Saturday night tornado ripped an 8.5-mile path of havoc bending trees like tooth picks, leaving homes in crumbles and the sharp smell of freshly chopped pine everywhere, said Gloucester County Sheriff Steve Gentry.

The storms carved a deadly path through Hampton Roads from South of the James near Walters and Carrsville, through Isle of Wight County, James City County, Gloucester County where a middle school suffered extensive damage, and then into Deltaville in Middlesex County.

Power outages affected more than 200,000 people and the governor declared a state of emergency Sunday afternoon.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with those impacted by the storms and flooding in the commonwealth," Gov. Bob McDonnell said in a statement.

The severe thunderstorms Saturday evening ransacked much of the Southeast United States with 240 reported tornadoes and at least 43 people dead, including three in Gloucester County.

The people who lost their lives in Gloucester were identified as Periccis Gerasimos Koutsoumbinas a 60-year-old male resident of Hummingbird Lane, Richard Lynn Ingram, 53, of Shelly Road, and Cecil Wray Page Jr., 90, of Shelly Road.

There were no damage estimates Sunday evening, but given previous storms in the region, they are expected at least in the millions.

Residents in the affected areas were busy at work Sunday clearing debris and assessing damage to their homes and property. Some swapped survival stories, while others helped cut limbs from downed trees and cleaned yards.

It wasn't an uncommon sight to see people carrying chainsaws and axes down the street in Gloucester asking how they could lend a hand. For some, the storm and subsequent tornado produced near-death experiences.

According to authorities, Page suffered a medical emergency and his death was not directly caused by the storm.

State of emergency

Under Virginia law, a state of emergency is required so state resources are available during an emergency.

Virginia emergency officials said that 177 structures were damaged by the severe weather.

The governor made plans to visit Gloucester County Monday. He was scheduled to be in Gloucester at 8:30 a.m. for aerial and ground tours, and planned a 10:15 a.m. appearance at the Bellamy United Methodist Church at 4870 Chestnut Fork Road.

Schools will be canceled on Monday in Gloucester because of the storm recovery efforts, according to Superintendent Ben Kiser.

Operations at Riverside Walter Reed Hospital in Gloucester returned to normal Sunday.

Peter Glagola, a spokesman for the hospital said 23 people were treated as a result of the storm. Three patients were transferred to Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport News.

One patient was admitted and the other 19 were treated and released, he said.

"We did stock up last night expecting more people this morning," Glagola said Sunday. "The second wave never came."

James City County

Cleanup from violent storms continued Sunday as neighbors in Grove began to remove trees and assess damage to their homes from a possible tornado that blew through about 7 p.m. Saturday.

National Weather Service investigators are expected to render a decision Monday on whether Grove, the hardest hit area in James City, was struck by yet another tornado.

If so, it would be third twister to strike the eastern end of the county in the last 18 years. For context, a 2006 report by the Peninsula Hazard Mitigation Planning Committee notes that the city of Williamsburg, a few miles to the west, has had just three tornadoes since 1896.

A 1993 tornado that hit Grove did $500,000 damage to Innovative Marine Products, ironically located on Blow Flats Road. Damage to nearby BASF¿Corp. totaled nearly $200,000. The same funnel left at least 13 people homeless.

A May 2002 storm produced a suspected tornado that downed trees and power lines, much like Saturday's event.

Saturday's storm left several people homeless, including a man who injured his head and shoulder when a tree fell through his mobile home.


Traffic along Route 17 in Gloucester County heading south remained clogged for much of the day as residents surveyed the damage. Access to parts of Shelly Road in Gloucester was restricted to residents as authorities tried to section off some of the worst hit areas.

Pocahontas Trail re-opened after being closed because of several power lines and trees down between the Newport News city line and the Busch Gardens flyover.

Many people said the storm's destruction left them in awe.

"This is Mother Nature right here," said Anna Wimibish, of Gloucester, as she cleaned up her yard littered with tree branches.

The day stressed her, she said, but she thought about what she could do to help. She fired up her grill and cooked breakfast and lunch for some of her neighbors that were without power.

"We think we're in control," she said, letting out a deep sigh. "We don't control anything."

Nature's fury leaves memories, little else in storm torn areas

Published: 06:23 AM, Mon Apr 18, 2011

A chilling picture emerged Sunday of the scope of devastation from Saturday's deadly tornadoes, as hundreds of families and business owners began the overwhelming process of rebuilding their lives.

At least 167 homes in Cumberland County were torn to pieces by the afternoon tornado that carved a three-block wide path across western and northern Fayetteville. Another 144 homes were damaged, 78 of them major, according to a preliminary assessment by county authorities.

More than 50 cars were smashed or crushed, and nearly 11,000 homes still had no power going into Sunday evening. Statewide, the number of confirmed dead climbed to at least 17, including one person in Linden, four in Bladen County, two in Lee County and one in Dunn.

The National Weather Service said two tornadoes touched ground in Cumberland County; the other was in the rural southeastern community of Beaver Dam. Fayetteville's tornado formed over the Wayside area of Hoke County and hit the ground along North Reilly Road, where homes in LaGrange were shredded and crushed, their contents strewn for hundreds of feet. The funnel pushed on for more than a mile to Yadkin Road, where roofs were torn from homes in Cottonade and Summerhill and towering pines snapped mid-trunk like brittle twigs.

The tornado appeared to dissipate at the All American Freeway but plowed back into neighborhoods near Andrews Road and Ramsey Street. The same tornado is believed to have continued northeasterly toward Linden, killing someone on Vault Field Road, then Dunn, where it damaged factories and killed again. The identities of both victims haven't been released.

On the ground, the extent of devastation was hard to comprehend. Fayetteville neighborhoods remained choked with debris, and major corridors were closed.

"I don't know where to start," said Mike Pate Sr., owner of Reilly Road Farmer's Market, as he tried to salvage what he could from his store. Yellow boards covered the windows blown out by the storm.

Friends and family sorted through the outside nursery plants that survived. Pate plans to rebuild the store, but it could take months.

Across town at the Longhill Pointe complex off McCloskey Road, Abby Tyjeski sifted through what was left. A wall of her second-story living room tumbled down, taking with it family photos and yearbooks.

"We're making piles," Tyjeski said, as she and Trey Wright dug through rubble 200 feet from their destroyed apartment. "Most of it is waterlogged and destroyed, but it still has the memories. At least you can look at it one last time."

Gov. Bev Perdue flew to Fayetteville in a helicopter to tour Reilly and Yadkin roads and meet with local authorities.

"We've seen tremendous property damage. I've never seen anything like this," Perdue said, shaking her head.

Mayor Tony Chavonne and Board of Commissioners Chairman Kenneth Edge huddled with the governor before she inspected damage at Ben Martin Elementary School, which will remain closed for the rest of the school year.

Perdue promised help to neighborhoods destroyed by the dozens of tornadoes spawned statewide. She declared a state of emergency Saturday night, one of the first steps toward getting federal assistance.

"They will be rebuilt. This is North Carolina," she said. "Bottom line: There will be no stone unturned."

But on a brilliantly sunny Sunday morning, scores of residents tried only to collect what they could before a 9 p.m. curfew. The city turned buses into shuttles that transported families to their homes. Those who were lucky will only have to replace shingles or remove fallen trees. Others were left with skeleton-like wooden frames. A shelter remained open Sunday night at Westover Recreation Center.

Some residents were upset by police restrictions in subdivisions. Residents were allowed to leave their neighborhoods in their vehicles, but once they left they couldn't return by car, said Jonathan Kammen, who lives between Reilly and Yadkin roads.

"Why are they letting people walk in, but what if you have a car with groceries or medicines, or if you are shuttling a disabled person?" he said. "This is nuts."

A Fort Bragg spokesman said soldiers who were turned away from their neighborhoods by law enforcement or firefighters will be allowed access to their homes by presenting military identification.

Belongings in tow

Yadkin Road - normally a bustling commercial corridor - was filled Sunday with people on foot, pushing their belongings in carts or pulling carry-on suitcases. They passed remnants of insurance offices, real estate firms, barber shops and military outlets. Orange Xs painted on buildings indicated where rescuers had searched for the injured or dead.

Adolph Holliman made his way to his home on Cool Shade Drive in Cottonade.

"It's liveable," he said. "But some of us are not that lucky."

Joanna Hamar and Xavier Poindexter walked hand in hand down Yadkin Road after checking on a friend's business.

"It's unspeakable," Hamar said. "It's amazing what Mother Nature can do. You see it on television but you don't realize how bad it is until you see it with your own eyes."

Areas put under curfew until 6 a.m. include Reilly Road between Morganton Road and the Fort Bragg gate; Fillyaw Road; and northern parts of Yadkin Road. North Fayetteville neighborhoods under curfew include Stonegate, Fairfield Farms, Summerchase and those near Pine Forest High School, which is closed today because of damage.

Fayetteville police were working Sunday afternoon to devise a plan that would allow people to return to houses that were safe. Bragg Boulevard and the All American were open Sunday evening, but Yadkin and Reilly remained closed.

The weather service hadn't yet determined the strength of the tornado nor where it ultimately dissipated, said meteorologist Scott Sharp.

"For comparison, it compares with March 1984 as far as the severity and with the long track," he said.

A series of tornadoes ripped through the Sandhills and eastern North Carolina that year, killing 42 including one person in Cumberland County.

"It was eerily similar as far as the strength and length of the track," Sharp said.

Staff writers April Dudash, Jim Halpin and Michael Futch contributed to this story.

Damage estimates could top $100 million in Cumberland County

Published: 12:06 PM, Mon Apr 18, 2011

A staff report

Authorities say Saturday's tornadoes caused $50 million to $100 million in damage in Cumberland County, according to preliminary estimates released Monday.

More than 300 homes were damaged or destroyed. The actual number of damaged structures, including buildings, cars and intrastructure, will likely be much higher.

Work in the tornado-ravaged areas of Fayetteville moves today from response to recovery, according to an emergency management spokesman.

"We'll now be helping neighborhoods with recovery," said Calvin Bishop, a battalion commander with the Fayetteville Fire Department.

He heads up the department's Collapse, Search and Rescue team.

Building contractors, business owners and insurance adjusters will be allowed to enter the areas that include neighborhoods along North Reilly, Yadkin and Andrews roads and North Ramsey Street.

Contractors must have a permit issued by the city, Bishop said, and will be allowed to drive into the areas.

Business owners and insurance adjusters will be allowed to walk into the areas, Bishop said.

Everyone must register with police to account for their whereabouts, he said.

Children who were returning to schools today were assembled at one area to catch the buses, Bishop said.

The schools, with the exception of Ben Martin Elementary and Pine Forest High schools, are operating on a two-hour delay this morning.

The elementary and high schools suffered severe damage during Saturday's tornado and will be closed today, officials announced Sunday. The elementary school will remain closed for the remainder of the school year.

Meanwhile, about 350 customers of South River Electric Membership Corp. remained without power this morning, according to a spokeswoman.

A substation that serves Clinton is still out of service, Catherine O'Dell said, and there are reports of scattered outages.

Workers will be focusing on restoring service to those customers today, she said.

South River workers have been joined by crews from Lee Electrical Construction in Aberdeen and Randolph Electrical Membership Cooperative in Asheboro, O'Dell said.

Workers from Brunswick Electric Membership Corp. in Shallotte assisted South River workers on Sunday, she said.

A limited number of power generators arrived at Home Depot this morning, according to Robert Jenkins, manager of the Skibo Road store.

An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.

The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great... I would recommend it very highly.'

The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'

The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know... The one that's red and has thorns.'

'Do you mean a rose?'

'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?'

     I'm pretty much there already, Dools - thanks again!


From - 04/13/11 - "Spiritual Health":
Five Steps to Improve Your Spiritual Health

By Karen Kleinwort

What does the term "spiritual health" mean? We all have our own perspective of what both "spiritual" and "health" mean in a general sense, but when we talk about spiritual health we define it as "a sense of wholeness." For example, when we feel sick, we have two options: either we get better and recovered, or we don't and complete our life cycle by finishing the connection with anything living. Some believe Spiritual Health is an art of healing: the ultimate medicine, a remedy that cures your inner sight as well as your spirit. There are those who believe it also provides you with the capacity of loving yourself unconditionally and reconnects you to your talents and gifts, which helps in feeling fulfilled with your life.

A healthy "spirit" does take a little extra effort, as it becomes a daily priority to embrace. In the beginning it is on your "to-do" list, but after a while it becomes second nature and a habit that for the most part you begin to do subconsciously. But what does that mean? Well, each day you will need to give spirit a top-level priority to do such actions as thinking positively or focusing on your successes and not your so-called failures. And your next question is most likely "Really? That simple, eh?" And my response in most instances is a simple yes. But it is not without effort and time before your perspective will shift to see it being just this simple.

Your spiritual health may or may not be relevant to your religious beliefs. And due to the sheer fact that each of us holds a different definition of spiritual, religious and energetic wellness, this article regards spirituality in the sense of "the human spirit," which we all share whether we are of the same religion or not. The following are the five basic steps that help in gaining and improving your spiritual health and wellness.

Set Aside Spare Time for Yourself
This initial step does not mean carving out 30 minutes or an hour each day. It means taking five minutes whenever you can in the beginning and increasing the duration and frequency each week. This can prove difficult if you feel you don't have any time for yourself, so make it simple in the beginning by simply standing up and stretching your body any way you can. You might read your favorite author or fashion magazine. If can be embracing your own approach to prayer or meditation, saying affirmations or performing visualization exercises. The key behind this step is not necessarily what you do but that you give yourself a break from everyday tasks while also giving yourself a chance to focus on your own spiritual well-being.

Time Management
This is another step that even the most proficient individuals can easily overlook. If you're going to spend time for yourself each day, then plan it! The 24 hours in a day are spent mostly sleeping and working, whether that work is regarding your job or not. A little time for your interests and hobbies gives complete mental relaxation and keeps you vitalized for your personal life as well as your professional career. Try to learn time management wisely; you will better handle your daily life responsibilities, and a wonderful byproduct is decreasing your anxiety and stress levels.

Interact with Nature
If you do not have time to get out and enjoy your local park or head to the hills for hiking, then try to start your day by spending time in your garden every morning. Use the time you would normally sit at the table drinking your coffee or tea to walk through your garden while sipping your cup of joe. All you have to do is walk on dewed grass and feel its freshness (Or bend down and feel its softness if you avoid walking on wet grass.). Smell the woodiness of the trees. If you happen to live in a place where there is not a garden or "green" to look at out your window, then bring the garden inside by having house plants and fresh-cut flowers. The interaction with nature helps you restore your sense of peace in what can be a very stressful world. Less stress means increased overall wellness.

Remember Your Hobbies
Our hobbies are great escapes from the reality and life that surround us each day. When you are working on something that feeds your passion, you not only able to break the potential of being bored with life but can also use this as an opportunity to expand your skills by working through the challenges and learning a new hobby. Finding a hobby you truly enjoy brings a sense of inner delight and joy. Creating crafts, food experiments, team environment participation, candle making, dress designing, etc., allows you to share that delight and joy--which in turns feeds your spirit.

Be Helpful
If you can do something to improve or advance a relationship--whether it is with a neighbor, spouse or stranger walking down the street--then follow your heart and be helpful. If you can be open to sharing some of your time that will support another in his journey, then the result is your feeling a sense of pride and love. Both of these feed your soul and your spirit.

If you haven't already noticed the theme of each of these five helpful tips to improving your overall spiritual wellness, then let me spell it out: T I M E. Yes, it all comes down to how you spend your time in and out of your career and family obligations. If you are spending time on what feeds you, nourishes your spirit and fuels your passions, then you can easily and simply improve your overall spiritual health and wellness.

Until next time, embrace your inner wisdom.

Adam was walking outside of the Garden of Eden with Cane and Abel when the boys were young. Cane and Abel looked into the garden and viewed waterfalls, lovely birds, lush forests and fruit trees bending over because of the large amounts of fruit on them. Then they took a long look at where they lived. It was dry, dusty with weeds and sickly-looking trees.

"Daddy? Why don't we live in there instead of out here?" they asked innocently.

Adam said, "Well, Sons. Eve and I use to live in there at one time. But your mother ate us out of house and home."
