*** One Paragraph Pitch:

I’m Stacey Viera, a D.C.-based flack with chutzpa looking for opportunities to tell your organization's story as an independent consultant. At PR firms, on Capitol Hill, at a trade association and as a freelance consultant, I’ve crafted strategy and pitched stories for just about any industry or issue – politics, automotives, technology, fisheries, propane, cosmetics and beer, for instance.

Not only do I work hard, I work smart, using my instincts and talent to go for not just A media placement, but THE media placement. And if at first I don’t succeed, I continue to work with the appropriate reporters to build a good working relationship so that when the time is right, I can supply them with the information they need fast. This approach has garnered positive working relationships with local and national media, mainly in print. That's because I have a great instinct for what's news, what's not and what we need from the client to get the stories covered.

Offshore Patrol Vessels – Multi-role, Cost-Effective Naval Solutions for 21st Century Operations

Smaller vessels are being proposed as the best way for navies to face ever-tightening budgets. There is now a huge range of options available within the small warships market. Is the best option to include as much technology and weaponry available as you can? What about the vast array of propulsion choices available? Is it best to opt for maximum capability or will refits and more economical vessels prove to be the better option?

*** From Alix Anne Hornig:

Hoping you can help us get the word out about the 2008 SemperComm Award

program as we'd love to receive several more entries before judging

begins in March. Thanks very much! **Anyone can submit a nomination and

all entries are due by Friday, February 29, 2008.

The SemperComm Award is given each year to nominated active-duty

military personnel who go above and beyond the call of duty to help

motivate, entertain and otherwise lift the spirits of their fellow

service members.

The SemperComm Foundation works to boost morale of our men and women

deployed to remote locations around the world, but we recognize that

there are a significant number of overseas remote bases that we can not

reach right away. While we hope to eventually reach out to all isolated

bases, the SemperComm Award is designed to recognize and honor service

members who are making personal contributions to boost the morale of

fellow men and women.

Service personnel from each military branch, including the Coast Guard,

combatant command and field commands can be nominated for this award.

SemperComm will choose up to three awardees to be honored at our annual

Gala, set for May 22, 2008. Winners will be determined based on three

criteria: actions taken to boost the morale of fellow service members,

the remoteness of the base where they are stationed, and their desire to

go above and beyond the call of duty.

Visit http://www.sempercommgala.org to learn more about our 2008

SemperComm Gala and to access an entry form for this year's SemperComm

Award.

*** From W. Patrick McSweeney:

Captain:

Please include this message for consideration of your loyal legions:

The Naval Order of the United States is calling all hands on deck to honor the “Forgotten 1,068.”

The Naval Order is seeking the final funding for a monument to the 1,068 sailors who gave their lives on June 6, 1944 in the largest naval invasion ever. The operation comprised 1,213 Allied warships and more than 3,500 landing craft along a 50-mile wide target area of the beaches of Normandy, France. There currently is no monument or memorial honoring the Navy’s participation in the D-Day invasion.

The Naval Order hopes to raise $100,000 so that a bronze monument can be installed at Utah Beach. Tax deductible contributions can be sent to: Naval Order Foundation, P.O. Box 583, Glenview, IL 60025-0583. Personal checks should be marked with “Normandy” on the memo line. Corporate donations are welcome. Contributors of $25,000 or more will receive a 12” bronze replica of the monument.

For more information, go to www.normandymonument.org or contact Capt. Greg Streeter, USN (Retired), Chairman of the Navy D-Day Monument Project at (904) 221-0923 or gstreetr@bellsouth.net.

Hi Ned:

This is a great service as I am in the middle of the daunting task of finding a job! However, I have a question regarding the timing of these openings. Are the lists that come out each week the ones you have gotten recently or do they get older and older as you go down the list each week?

I'm trying to determine if they are all still open positions or if, when you get towards the end of each week's list, those are older and have more of a chance of already having been filled.

Thanks for your help.

Two-Alarm Springfield House Fire

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department units responded to a house fire at approximately 7:30 p.m., Friday, January 25, 2008, in the Springfield area of Fairfax County. The single-family home is located at 7833 Mulberry Bottom Lane.

Firefighters encountered heavy fire and smoke from the left and rear sides of the two-story home upon arrival. The fire went up the chimney and into the attic. Firefighters brought the fire under control in approximately 30 minutes. The occupants escaped unharmed. Four people were displaced, three adults and one juvenile. The second alarm brought approximately 60 firefighters to the scene. There were no injuries. The Red Cross is assisting the displaced residents.

Damage is estimated at $100,000.

According to fire investigators, the fire was accidental. The fire originated in a manufactured chimney.

Fireplace Safety Tips

• Inspect the fireplace. Make sure it has adequate protective linings and smoke ducts. Ensure the chimney is clear and in good condition.

• If you are installing a factory-made fireplace, it should not be near combustible materials. It should also have adequate flame and heat barriers.

• Inspect chimneys annually, and clean as necessary, by a CSIA (Chimney Safety Institute of America) Certified Chimney Sweep. This reduces the risk of fires and carbon monoxide poisonings due to creosote buildup or obstructions in the chimneys. To locate a certified sweep, visit the CSIOA Web site at www.csia.org or call 1-800-536-0118. A certified sweep can also perform maintenance on your wood stove or help remove gas logs from a fireplace.

• Keep the top of chimneys clear of tree limbs or debris.

• Do not overload the fireplace. Large fires can lead to overheating of wall or roof materials, particularly if the fireplace is constructed of metal.
