*** One Paragraph Pitch:

To those holding down the fort in Ned's absence:

I admire what Ned has accomplished with this newsletter and, while the dead

of summer may not be the best time, I'd like to submit my first One

Paragraph Pitch for your consideration.

Thanks,

Elizabeth J. Swasey, Esq.

I offer 18 years as a communications executive – 13 in nationally recognized

public policy associations, and the past five in an agency working with

healthcare and business-to-government clients. I am experienced in

designing and implementing high-profile, strategic, integrated, issue-based

public affairs campaigns. Three quick examples:

When I assumed the role of Director of Communications at the Media Research

Center, liberal media bias was perceived as a tired complaint of

conservative kooks. It is now well-accepted as fact. The key to this

transformation was a campaign that tied policy stakeholders to MRC research,

e.g. a Special Report on news coverage of Cuba was released at a joint press

conference by MRC and Cuba Libertad, and followed by a Congressional

Briefing before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

As Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action's CrimeStrike

Division, I designed and implemented a campaign that repositioned NRA as a

powerful, principled leader in criminal justice reform without damaging its

Second Amendment brand. In this instance, the keys to success were

partnering with non-traditional allies such as Parents of Murdered Children,

putting the NRA's considerable lobbying might behind reform legislation on

both the State and Federal levels, and exploiting opportunities that others

overlooked such as mocking the idea of “midnight basketball” as a

tough-on-crime measure and offering alternatives.

As Director of the NRA Office of Women's Issues & Information, the

communications campaign I designed and implement turned “women and guns”

into a 1990s cultural phenomenon by highlighting self-defense for women and

safety for children – aspects of firearms ownership that enjoyed the highest

degree of public support.

My private-sector work, particularly with a healthcare IT client the “Post

200″ ranked as the third most profitable local public company, has given me

a real world understanding of how policy issues affect business. A

presidential directive requiring Americans have electronic medical records

by 2014 has sent healthcare IT companies and their client hospitals

scrambling; part of my responsibility to this client is to help get its

voice heard in complex legislative and regulatory arenas.

To my communications experience, I would add three qualities: sound

judgment, multi-dimensional thinking, and attentiveness to the political,

associational and organizational environment in which decisions are made.

*** The JOTW Virtual Potluck Picnic (All Nedworkers Invited):

The second JOTW Summer Virtual Potluck Picnic is being held this Labor Day Weekend (that's 29-August – 1 September) at the official JOTW Potluck Picnic site at Jack Duggan's place somewhere in Oregon, down the road, by the gate, over in around back by the cabin.

We've got a virtual fire pit, a big cut-in-half 55-gal. drum barbeque grill if you need it, and we're bringing in water and ice. Let's see, what else do we need, Jack?

Oh yeah, food. Everybody's got to bring something. Whatever your specialty is. Send us a description of what you're contributing, and why you chose to share this particular dish with your fellow Ned-workers. You can also include the recipe and a photo, which we'll post in a special folder at www.nedsjotw.com.

So, start cooking while Jack is out checking the picnic place for snakes.

Send your virtual potluck contribution to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.

See the photos as they are posted at http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/VirtualPotluck.

Ned: Jack, tell us where the JOTW Virtual Potluck will be held?

Jack: Location will be JD's place, Forest Creek Studios, located at the end of the road, past the gate, up through the field and between the two oaks. Tucked snugly between Mount Isabelle and Timber Mountain, We expect a bumper crop of wild blackberries by Labor Day. Bring your dipping mug for cold drinks of bove water, a natural spring that provides us with watercress twice a year.

For your info. There are two picnic tables (pix forthcoming) at the fire pit and one large tent. Though there is only one tent for overnight accomodations, it has been known to hold fourteen teen-agers in what has been called both a “Puppy Pile” and a “Cuddle Puddle.”

*** Jack follows up with this more detailed invitation, and posts the first picture in the potluck gallery:

JOTW Potluckers:

Hello and welcome to southern Oregon’s hidebound hills, home of Forest Creek Studios, snugly tucked between Timber Mountain and Mount Isabelle. I’m Jack Duggan and I’ll be your host for this Virtual Potluck.

For those of you who must virtually see where you’re going, look up 5505 Forest Creek Road, Jacksonville, OR 97530 on your favorite Mapquest, Google or whatever site. You’ll find we’re just past the end of the road (see picture).

Your host is a professional ex-communicator, having done my best to communicate with those “good” Catholic girls during high school. Or it could be because my Heinz 57 career in the communication arts included playing lead keyboard for Seattle City Light during the ‘90s, whence I had the good fortune to cross verbage with one Ned Lundquist.

We’ve chased off the buzztails (rattlesnakes) and are cleaning up the picnic area. Last year we gathered some 60 folks there, so I think we’ll have room. Pictures will be posted as they become available.

(Here’s where the first photo is posted, and where the rest of the Virtual Potluck photos will be found: http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/VirtualPotluck.)

We had a bit of a hot spell, but it's cooled off and the dancing dragonflies have returned, so entertainment will be available in the early evening. Sad to say we’ve not heard from the Coyote Chorus for some time, but both the Stellar Jays and Ravens frequently provide some background tempo.

We’ll run a couple extension cords up from the house for margarita machines, music or whatever, but there is a neighborhood ban on heavy metal. (Music, that is; we believe in heavy metal for all variety of chores.)

In addition to bove water, a year-round spring where you can dip your mug for a clear, fresh cup of mountain cool pure enough to grow watercress, I’ll stock up on some Dead Guy, Moose Drool, 1554 and Downtown Brown. For the wine lovers among us, please take some time to tour the many award-winning wineries in the Applegate Valley.

If history’s your thing, check out nearby Jacksonville, Oregon’s only incorporated city that is a National Historic Landmark. Say hi to my cousin if you take a ride on the trolley.

That’s –30- for now, folks. Have to get busy cleaning up for company. Missives from the mountain will come regularly, but feel free to send your questions to shanachie@hughes.net.

Walk in Peace – Jack

Facebook says such attempts constitute spamming. Feel free to contact Facebook and tell them you want Ned’s account restored (Ned has tried to contact Facebook at disabled@facebook.com but has not received any response to his emails).

*** Loyal JOTW nedworkers objected:

Dear Facebook,

I am writing in support of my colleague Ned Lundquist (CAPT, USN, Retired) who was recently (and unbelievably!) been banned from Facebook for apparent “spamming”. Ned is an award-winning, thought- and networking leader in the professional communications field. His “JOTW” (Job of the Week) service networks over 10,000 people at their request and at no charge. Ned is highly committed to excellence in the profession (as well as the defense and well being of the United States). He is known internationally for his vast accomplishments within the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) which boasts over 16,000 members from some 60+ counties of the world. Yes, he is consummate networker! Yes, many people want to keep their connection with him and each other. Hard to believe? Maybe. Nonethess true. The “ned-working” information and contacts he sends his many colleagues (like me) are highly valued. They may appear to be “spam” to Facebook but they are absolutely not. They are totally welcome!

You have made an enormous mistake in barring Ned Lundquist from Facebook. Please have the grace to acknowledge it and bring Ned back to Facebook (yesterday )

“JOTW” is a cooperative service sharing jobs for communication professionals, including PR, Corporate

Communications, Marketing, Advertising, Broadcasting, Journal ism, Graphic Design, New Media,

There once was a man who would blog

On his Blackberry while he did jog

With keypad anchored by carabiner

He had no great fear

Of losing words while dodging road hogs

Kris Gallagher, ABC

If I win, do I get a choice of colors?

(Win what?)

(What’s your carabiner limerick? Send to Ned at lundquist989@cs./com.)

*** And this one:

Dear Ned,

Note to self: Did Ned mean “carabineer” or did he really mean “carabiner”? Knowing him, he probably meant the former as it seems impossible to fit it into a limerick rhyme pattern. On the other hand….

So, I'm taking the liberty of assuming you meant “carabiner” (being aware of your interest in the great outdoors). Also, I couldn't find the sample limerick you mentioned, which might have used carabineer.

Here's my lame attempt:

There once was a young carabiner

Loved a piton as soon as he'd seen her

But as sure as they'd met,

He began to regret,

And withdrew, claiming “No! Didn't mean her!”

Of course, I've anthropomorphized carabiner (which I wouldn't have had to do with carabineer) thus committing yet another sin. I guess you'll have to throw me out for cheating.

Cheers!

*** And this one:

Ned,

You should know better than to get me started on limericks… a question: I always thought it was spelled: carabiner? But I bow to your much vaster outdoor experience.

Best,

Kathy McHale

My dog kept escaping his crate,

Gnawed right through the lock and the gate.

Six carabineers attached,

To the wire and the latch,

And now he’s accepted his fate.

Though mountains I may never climb,

My carabineers I prize as sublime.

Plant hangers, key holders,

Paperweights for my folders,

Inspiration for this little rhyme.

(I should never pay attention to spell check)

*** And this one:

Carabineer limerick-

Never new Ted was a screamer,

Third partner this season; “ohh wiener,”

his position – never been

I must've – once again

Forgot to bring my carabiner.

Also, I have a quick question. I graduated from the University of Texas this

May with a B.S. in Advertising. Upon returning to Houston, I have had trouble

finding an entry-level job with this major. Advertising agencies are a

short-list and I've only found offerings with door-to-door terrible sales jobs.

I'm on PRSA and IABC, but with no luck. Any advice as to where or how to look

for better entry-level positions? Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Kyle Suhl

*** And this one:

Hi Ned,

This is not only a carabineer limerick, it is a true story (albeit with a happy ending – the carabineer I gave to the trade show organizers named it “tchotchke of the year”!)…

A young trade show manager would state

A carabineer as giveaway is great!

When the built-in flashlight stayed unlit,

His sales reps thought “yikes, what a twit”

And the carabineers never came out of the crate!

Kevin Nolan

*** I confess:

OK, I confess, I don't know what “carabineer” is. Dee

D

(From Dictionary.com:

car•a•bi•ner [kar-uh-bee-ner]

–noun a D-shaped ring with a spring catch on one side, used for fastening ropes in mountaineering.)

Got it. In the original, it was spelled with an extra e, which is why I couldn't find it in the dictionary. As I always used to tell my mom, how can I look it up in the dictionary if I don't know how to spell it! :) Thanks. Dee

*** Coffee Mug of the week: HP (thanks to Jay Coleman, APR)

Ned,

Thanks for the honorary APR designation, however, I've never been a member of PRSA, and they probably would object to me claiming to be an APR. As you know, I am an Accredited Business Communicator (ABC) by the IABC and a strong proponent of that professional designation.

Cheers,
