VFW members urged to support new school The land issues have been settled, a name has been assigned and construction is proceeding briskly. Soon, the attendance-area questions will be settled. Believe it or not, resolving these issues is the easy part! Now the real work of establishing the new Veterans Elementary School begins. The members of Yingling-Ridgely VFW Post 7472 consider the land upon which the school sits to be their gift to the community, but the true legacy of this post lies in the 700-plus children who will bring the building to life in August 2007.

Callers hear the Vietnam veteran's taped instructions about leaving a message, followed by a cheery "Semper Fi!" and a rousing recording of a few bars of the Marine Corps hymn. While his sign-off is the abbreviated form of semper fidelis, which is Latin for "always faithful," it would have been easy for the 58-year-old Marine to lose faith after a series of health setbacks left him unable to work and in considerable pain, he said.

How hard can it be to hit an oversized softball, especially if the pitcher is blindfolded or pitching behind his back?Just ask Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays or Roberto Clemente, all of whom are among 14,000 batters on Eddie Feigner's strikeout list. They'll tell you how confident they were until they figured out three strikes later that Feigner was every bit as tough a pitcher as Nolan Ryan or Sandy Koufax.For 48 years, Feigner has been on the road entertaining more than 18 million people. He has been everywhere -- 98 countries, places as diverse as Saudi Arabia, the local VFW and the Hollywood studios.
