THIS WEEK IN REVIEW ....May 4, 2006
This weeks Reporter-Carl Duncan

Fry   Dowdey     Harder

GUESTS: Today's guests were Margot Newman, Director of Marketing and Development, and Jill Wayne, Executive Director of the Center for Hearing Speech and Language. They came to personally thank the club for the raffle donation. Jim Rees said the Red Cross silent auction did well and made special mention of the help he received from RENEE CAMPBELL in organizing the raffle affair.

President Marshall inducted STERLING CAIN as our newest member. Sterling was born in California but his parents moved him to Arkansas at an early age and on to Florida when he was a teenager. Stearling attended the University of Central Florida and later studied law at Florida State University.

He got married in 1991 and has a 2 year old daughter. Sterling is currently a computer consultant and has his office with Computer HQ located at 3290 S Bannock in Englewood. Bezjak immediately proposed a 50 cent fine on Sterling so that he might feel welcome and right at home with the club.

After some hesitation, Parchen described this initiation ceremony to be one of the worst he has ever heard and therefore proposed a fine on Dowdey for not training Marshall in the ways of induction ceremonies. Although Dowdey claimed that Marshall was "untrainable" the fine passed.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Doug Harder announced the slate of officers for next year. Jack Marshall will become Chairman of the Board and Bob Hogge will be President. Vice presidents include Carl Duncan, Jim Rees and George Hannes. Dave Penalnd, Jim Perkins, and Bob Schlageter will be directors. Rick Campbell will be treasurer and Dick Enslow will be in charge of bingo. The position of Secretary remains unfilled. Are there any volunteers out there?

A special scrapbook is being prepared for Carol Worth. Space is available for short personal messages from any of us who wish to write a note of special remembrance about one's association with Bill.

BINGO IS A GO! In fact so much time was consumed by Dick uuuuuh Enslow in describing the new facility at So Federal and Mansfield that there was no time for the SERTOMAN OF THE DAY.   (Bingo info from last week reprinted at bottom of page). As for learning about the new bingo facility, it starts at 7 instead of 7:3 so all team members must arrive one half hour earlier than before. Your personal orientation will take place on the site at that time.

Do to running short of time, Jim Helmick agreed to be SOD next week.
(Wow, what a sport, thanks Jim)

PROGRAM:   Mabe Downey introduced Tom Keller, Korean War Veteran,, member of several veterans organizations, and military historian. However today's lecture was a biographical sketch of NICOLA TESLA. Tesla was born in 1856 of Serbian parents in the Croatia sector of former Yugoslavia. Tesla was blessed with a fantastic IQ which he used to obtain PHD's in physics, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and mathematics. He has been judged to be among 100 of the most important people who have lived in the last 1000 years. Because he is a man "out of his time" or perhaps better described as a man a way ahead of his time, he is not that well known.

He came to America in 1882 and initially worked with Thomas Edison. His inventive genius surpassed that of Edison and they became rivals. Some of Tesla's inventions include MRI's. X-ray machines, micro waves (currently used in ovens), electron microscopes, Tesla coils, AC current, vacuum tubes (formerly used in computers) fluorescent lights. Sixty years after his death in 1943, many of his ideas and discoveries are finding a myriad of useful applications in our everyday lives.
