***  One Paragraph Pitch:

Dear Ned Lundquist:
 
You can thank Mike Scott for me. I found out about you, your band of
rogues, and the JOTW newsletter from Mike. 
 
Mike and I have a short history: I was leaving the American Medical
Association when he was joining it back in 1994, and my speech writer
friends told me how good Mike was at PR and speech writing. Then in
2004, I had the opportunity to hire Mike to work for me at the American
Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) to do what he does best…write
for leadership volunteers.
 
Mike's a great guy with a terrific sense of humor and I enjoy working
with him. Mike is still at ASCP, even through ASCP is located in Chicago
and he lives in Indiana. However, after 8 years with ASCP, I was laid
off.  I am currently job hunting and want to remain in the Chicago area
as I have family here. Any assistance JOTW can provide is more than
welcome.
 
You asked for some background information. Here is a quick summary:
 
I was a reporter for Chicago's SouthTown (a suburban) newspaper for five
years. Worked for Borg Warner as their Benefits Communication Specialist
for a year, and then left the for-profit world for nonprofit healthcare.
I enjoyed being the Communications Director for three Chicago hospitals
where my staff and I were responsible for communications, public
relations, marketing, and media relations, and I served as staff liaison
to the Women's Guilds.
 
I also handled the media frenzy over the 20th anniversary of the murder
of eight student nurses by Richard Speck, which happened to occur when
Speck was coming up for parole. I was hired the year before the event by
the president of South Chicago Hospital specifically to manage media
relations for that event. The president wanted Speck to remain in jail,
and for me to protect the hospital's reputation for quality community
service that he had built over time.
 
Five years later, the hospital merged with a large healthcare system and
I was hired by the American Medical Association.  I join ASCP in 1998.
The rest is history.
 
Best regards,
Nadine

My wife's birthday is (no joke) March 32 (April 1). She thinks it's the
best day of the year and told me I don't have to pay the JOTW's
observance fee (* March 32 Observance Fee $2.50) — says I'm already
paying enough though the nose and ears so she can celebrate a rousing
good birthday. I checked my wallet this morning; she's not kidding. I'm
glad you were.

***  From Shonali Burke, ABC, at the ASPCA:

All –
 
I hope you and yours are well-including any four-legged family members.
 
I apologize for not doing this earlier, but have been working round the
clock at the ASPCA since the pet food recall was announced-we've
basically been in crisis mode. We've been working very closely with the
media to disseminate useful information, and also try to maintain some
sense of perspective on this issue (difficult as that is).
 
For anyone to whom this information is useful (whether that's you or
someone you know)-probably one of the best places to gather information,
especially toxicological information in “English,” is www.aspca.org/recall. We are trying to update the FAQs, etc., regularly,
and have put up several links that may be useful as well.
 
Please do pass this along to anyone you think it may help.

Stay well,
Shonali

(Here's a story that mentions Shonali:  http://www.prweek.com/us/search/article/647586/..)

***  ASPCA Day:

What's happening on ASPCA Day?  National landmarks all around the
country are going to light up in orange, our signature color, to show
support for our mission (including the Empire State Building, Sears
Tower, San Francisco City Hall, and many others). In addition, people
all around the country will “Go Orange for Animals” in any way they
can-by dressing in orange, dressing their pets in orange, baking orange
muffins, putting up orange lights-should be a lot of fun! We're also
holding the “ASPCA Day Festival” in NYC's Union Square on April 10,
where there will be lots of fun and frolic for two- and four-legged
folks, including music by Joe Bouchard & members of Blue Oyster Cult
(more cowbell, anyone?). Tomorrow's USA Today (i.e. April 9)
encapsulates it very nicely: http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2007-04-08-aspca-day_N.htm. It might
be fun for JOTW-ers to do-they can get more info/ideas at www.aspca.org/aspcaday. The icing on the cake is that we will be holding
a contest on our Web site to see who went the most orange, and one entry
will win a trip to NYC at our expense, to get a private tour of our
adoption center, meet our President & HLE (Humane Law Enforcement)
officers (our “animal cops” who are featured on Animal Planet's “Animal
Precinct”), and much more

***  Beth King, APR, isn't jerking daisy around:

As soon as I read this message from Pet Edge
(http://www.adipet.com/index.shtml), I went downstairs to check the bags
of chicken jerky I had gotten at Sam's Club the other day for Daisy. I
was relieved to learn we're safe.

***  Designating JOTW issues:

How about instead of JOTW 13-2007, it would be JOTW 27-03-07 or
03-27-07?

Cheers,

(Why would that be better?)

***  Trail to Eagle:

Michael Heavener recently told me about Scout Matthew Lytle of Troop 550
in Redmond, Wash., who will receive his Eagle Scout award at a court of
honor on May 5, 2007.

So I asked Michael to ask Matthew three questions:

What was the hardest part of making Eagle?

“Dedicating all the time to Scouts, and many times having to give up
other events such as snowboarding to Scouts.”

Which merit badge was hardest?

“Citizenship in the World was the hardest merit badge I had to take,
because of all the information that needed to be learned and written
about.”

Which was the one he enjoyed the most?

“I enjoyed the lifesaving merit badge the most because I like to
swim and to help people.”

(Ned says:  Today I think there are more opportunities to earn merit
badges at camporees and other events.  But the hardest part for me about
making Eagle was calling adult merit badge counselors I didn't know and
asking them to help me with my merit badge.  Now they wouldn't be merit
badge counselors if they didn't want to help Scouts, but I found that
part hard.  My hardest merit badge was lifesaving, because I wasn't a
strong swimmer, and the lifesaving merit badge instructor at Hidden
Valley in Gilmanton Iron Works, N.H., was.  I had to rescue Dave Ewer as
he “drowning.”  Although I must say cooking was hard, seeing as I burned
the biscuits and Jon Kaplan gave me a partial.  I had to come back and
do it again the next year, burning the “one pot” chicken stew I made in
a coffee can this time, but the instructor said it was pretty good.  My
first merit badge was stamp collecting with Mr. Landry of Auburndale
Stamp and Coin.  My final merit badge was aviation with Red Bank, who
died in a helicopter crash some years later.  Maybe my most memorable
was journalism, working the night shift with Mr. Paul Sawin at the
Boston Herald Traveler, or bird study with Henry White, who, while
legally blind, could hear more birds than I could ever see.  Some
things, Matthew, you never forget.)
