Air Show

Subject: A Wake Up Call From Luke AFB, AZ
Luke AFB is west of Phoenix and is rapidly being surrounded bycivilization that complains about the noise from the base and itsplanes, forgetting that it was there long before they were.A certain lieutenant colonel at Luke AFB deserves a big pat on theback. Apparently, an individual who lives somewhere near Luke AFBwrote the local paper complaining about a group of F-16s thatdisturbed his/her day at the mall. When that individual read theresponse from a Luke AFB officer, it must have stung quite a bit.
The complaint:"Question of the day for Luke Air Force Base: Whom do we thank forthe morning air show? Last Wednesday, at precisely 9:11 a.m., atight formation of four F-16 jets made a low pass over ArrowheadMall, continuing west over Bell Road at approximately 500 feet.Imagine our good fortune! Do the Tom Cruise-wannabes feel we needthis wake-up call, or were they trying to impress the cashiers atMervyns early bird special? Any response would be appreciated."The response:Regarding "A wake-up call from Luke's jets" (Letters, Thursday): OnJune 15, at precisely 9:12 a.m., a perfectly timed four-ship flybyof F-16s from the 63rd Fighter Squadron at Luke Air Force Base flewover the grave of Capt. Jeremy Fresques.
Capt. Fresques was an Air Force officer who was previously stationedat Luke Air Force Base and was killed in Iraq on May 30, MemorialDay. At 9 a.m. on June 15, his family and friends gathered atSunland Memorial Park in Sun City to mourn the loss of a husband,son and friend.
Based on the letter writer's recount of the flyby, and because ofthe jet noise, I'm sure you didn't hear the 21-gun salute, theplaying of taps, or my words to the widow and parents of Capt.Fresques as I gave them their son's flag on behalf of the Presidentof the United States and all those veterans and servicemen and womenwho understand the sacrifices they have endured. A four-ship flybyis a display of respect the Air Force pays to those who give theirlives in defense of freedom. We are professionalaviators and take our jobs seriously, and on June 15 what the letterwriter witnessed was four officers lining up to pay their ultimaterespects.
The letter writer asks, "Whom do we thank for the morning air show?"The 56th Fighter Wing will call for you, and forward your thanks tothe widow and parents of Capt. Fresques, and thank them for you, forit was in their honor that my pilots flew the most honorableformation of their lives.

Going over the wall!

There are various factions all with an interest in the piece of property adjacent to the Expo Center. This is not the sexiest issue, not the most emotional but the perfect issue to demand transparency from our civic politicians. So often I have heard from listeners upset by the back room dealings of the city. This is THE issue to force them to do business in public. I guarantee The Care Bears will not like it which persuades me even more this is the right time and the right issue.

Be respectful but please call and encourage the following Springfield Council Members to do all they can to have all the discussions with the four developers and the city management IN PUBLIC. If there needs to be a special council meeting then have a special council meeting. Lets us ALL hear from the developers and let us ALL hear why the city decides in favor over the other three. We want to ALL HEAR!

John Wylie 887-8022
Dan Chiles 447-8051
Ralph K. Manley 889-5909
Cindy Rushefsky 496-6804
Doug Burlison 865-7175

By "clicking" on the name you will be sent to their email.

We ALL need to go over the wall on this one!

WOW what a show!

Busy show. Here are the contact details.

Barbra Smith is quite a lady. She is the woman helping to start The Christian Educational Cooperative. The website is

David Marlett, Founder of ProAmerica Companies. ProAmerica Companies is a new and rapidly growing free service that promotes American companies which refuse to hire illegal aliens.

The outcome of the last round of EU negotiations sets a bad precedent for those opposed to George W. Bush's "dream merger" of the United States with Mexico and Canada, says controversial author Jerry Corsi, whose new book The Late Great U.S.A.: The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada (ISBN 0979045142, WND Books, hardcover, July 2007) details just how Bush plans to destroy American sovereignty as part of his "legacy."

Says Corsi, "Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair's last, most disgraceful official act was to give Britain's sovereignty away to the European Union. The land of the Magna Carta, a land like no other, will soon be extinguished as an independent nation, just to feed Tony Blair's insatiable ego." And Blair's successor has been told by the EU that the Brits are 'stuck with Blair's deal' - no matter how many citizens might vote against it in a referendum. Could that happen here?

The Real Cost of Corn Ethanol

I think Ethanol is a massive financial disaster. Difference between market led vs government driven..higher taxes and commodity prices.

Here is the information I based much of this morning's discussion on:

I don't agree with everything in the article but great food for thought.

Oh and I checked out this idea of burning water for fuel. Here is a link:

If you put HHO Technology in your search engine you will get all kinds of links to check out!
