C : A lot of responsibility


Okeechobee News/Katrlna Elsken
Easter bunnies are cute, but make sure a child is ready for the responsibility before giv-
ing them a live rabbit.

Easter bunnies need special care


Planning to surprise a child
with a real, live Easter bunny?
Make sure the child and the
household is prepared for the
responsibility, advised Sheryl
Heater, 4-H leader for the
Absolutely Splitting Hares Rabbit
Club.
She said rabbits do not make
good pets for very young chil-
dren.
"I'd say not younger than a 5-
year-old and even then you have
to pick your breed," Mrs. Heater
explained.
"People tend to buy the little
bitty rabbits for the little bitty kids,
but the dwarf rabbits tend to be
high strung," she continued.
"The medium sized rabbits do
better. They tend to be hardier
and manage better if they are
dropped.
"The great big rabbits are too
big for a small child to handle,"
she said.
She said new rabbit owners
should educate themselves so
they can properly care for their
bunnies.
Rabbits can live five to eight
years, she said. "It's a long term


commitment."
"Bunnies don't need a lot of
things like lettuce and carrots,"
she said. "Head lettuce can kill a
rabbit. It's 98 percent water and
can give them really bad diarrhea,
which is very dangerous for rab-
bits." If a rabbit gets diarrhea, it
can easily dehydrate and die.
"All they need is a good quality
rabbit feed, some timothy hay
and water," she said. She added
that she doesn't recommend
alfalfa hay because pellet rabbit
feed is mostly alfalfa.
She said while the pellet feed
provides the nutrition the rabbits
need, the hay is for roughage.
"They do need some
roughage, especially the long
breeds because they can get hair-
balls," Mrs. Heater said. "Hay can
help move hair through their sys-
tem and prevent blockages."
She advises against buying
bunnies as Easter gifts, unless the
child is really interested in having
a pet rabbit.
"The problem with Easter
bunnies is they buy them and in a
week or two they are bored with
them," she said. The bunnies are


about six to eight weeks old
when they are purchased, and as
they start to get older and bigger,
many of them wind up left at ani-
mal shelters or worse, aban-
doned.
"I always end up with a bunch
of Easter bunnies," she said.
Mrs. Heater said the shelters
call her to find homes for the bun-
nies.
'I recycle them into 4-H
homes, where I know they will
be properly taken care of," Mrs.
Heater explained.
She said it is cruel to just let a
domestic rabbit loose in the
woods.
"They can't fend for them-
selves," she said. "They'll get
killed easily. They can't get away
from the cats and the dogs. Most
of your Easter bunnies are white
with red eyes. They are not fit to
live in the wild."
They have no camouflage and
would be easily picked off by a
hawk or other predator, she
explained.

WT. Arnold, was a pioneer

boatman of the Kissimmee River


By Mary Ann Morris
INI Florida
In the Arnold family, Harley C.
Arnold is the only living member
of his generation. His memories
are treasured family stories. Born
to William Eston Arnold and Mit-
tie Raulerson Arnold in 1921, he
married Ruth Thomas in 1944.
William Eston Arnold was
born in Okeechobee to William
T. Arnold and Charity Long
Arnold in 1852. They had four
children, including William T. in
1879. He died in 1923.
"Well, W. T. Arnold had a 11ttll

en barge over.the.old Kss;.--e, -

River and that was some west of
Okeechobee," said Harley
Arnold. "I have this p:-ture of
him,"
When John Kunkel Small,
i. ;.i ihe New York Botanical


Garden made one of his trips to
Florida, this particular one in
1917, he wrote about driving
from Fort Pierce, through Okee-
chobee and on to Palmdale,
crossing the Kissimmee River on
what may have been W. T.
Arnold's barge.
An excerpt from Mr. Small's
published pamphlet, "A Botani-
cal Excursion to the Big Cypress"
describes the trip: "All had gone
well thus far, but at the Kissim-
mee River a series of apparently
predestinated troubles began.
The trails on either side of the
riv' were connected by a ferry

2 The Okeechobee News, Sunday, April 1, 2007


Special services begin this week


Okeechobee churches and
organizations are planning special
Easter services and events begin-
ning today and throughout the
week. Please feel free to attend
some of these that members of
churches and organizations have
taken time to plan. Most of these
events are an annual tradition for
churches and clubs. However, if
you haven't taken time before to
attend, maybe you can this year.
The sunrise service at Lock 7 is
an annual tradition, as is the annu-
al pancake breakfast with the
Kiwanis Club.
Okeechobee residents will
gather for a community-wide East-
er Sunrise Service on Easter Sun-
day, April 8, at Lock 7 beginning at
6:30 a.m. Those who attend are
bring their own chair and assem-
ble near the pier.
Oakview Baptist Church, 677


S.W. 32nd St., will present an East-
er musical drama "Pathos 2007"
on Sunday, April 1, at 6 p.m. The
presentation is open to the public.
For information, call (863) 763-
1699.
His House Fellowship Church
of the Nazarene will present a 45-
minute dramatization reflecting
each day in Holy Week brought to
life with music and narration. On
Monday, April 2, through Friday,
April 6, services will begin at 7 p.m.
Visitors will hear reflections of
each of the day's events by
Nicodemus, Thomas, the mother
of a little girl who sat on Jesus'
knee, the carpenter, the tanner, the
temple guard, and the Roman sol-
dier. The church is located at 425
S.W. 28th St, two blocks behind
Pizza Hut.
An Easter egg hunt will be
one highlight of a full Easter sched-


Submitted/Harley C. Arnold
"Well, W. T. Arnold had a little boat that he used to pull a
wooden barge over the old Kissimmee River and that was
some west of Okeechobee," said Harley Arnold. "I have this
picture of him." Note the fender and part of a wheel of a car
in the lower left of the photo. Mr. Small's narrative states the
car used was a Ford.

which consisted of a flatboat large
enough to hold a car and a small
motor boat of barely sufficient
capacity to drag the flatboat
around the bends and over the
sand bars of the river. In order to
cross the river, which there is less
than a hundred feet wide, it was
necessary to go about a half mile
down stream because of the ero-
sion of the banks. Once in the
stream the current of the river say
three miles an hour carried the
ferryboat along at a greater speed
than the motor boat could main-
.tain. Time and again the ferryboat
would bump into the river banks,
first on one side, then on the other
and would. In turn, bump into the
river banks, first on one side, then
on the other, and would, in turn
bump against the stern of the little
motor boat and knock off the rud-
der. Even after the ferryboat drifted


out of sight, we who were left
behind for the second trip could
hear the ferryman nailing the rud-
der on his disabled boat."
The history of the founding
families of Okeechobee County
winds throughout the history of
the development of central Flori-
da.
At the time of Mr. Small's telling
of his trip, 1914, Okeechobee
County had yet to be carved from
Osceola and St. Lucie counties.
The first railroad had only arrived
to that area. Moore Haven was just
begun. Lumber for buildings there
was harvested and finished near
Okeechobee and, taken by steam-
boat to Moore Haven. There were
no roads only tracks in the sand.
Few made the trip.

rabbits can learn more by joining a
4-H Club. In Okeechobee County,
two 4-H clubs offer Rabbit projects.
Barnyard Buddies is for children
ages 5 to 8.. Absolutely Splitting
Hares is for children ages 8 to 18.
Mrs. Heater said the-'4-H Club
members learn hov to take care of
rabbits, as well as showmanship
and rabbit breeding.
"We enter our rabbits in a lot of
different shows," she said. In addi-
tion to the, Okeechobee County
Livestock Show, the 4-H rabbits are
shown at American Rabbit Breed-
ers Association (ARBA) shows as
well as at the South Florida Fair and
the Tampa Fair.
"Most of our kids have pedi-
greed rabbits because they want to
show in American Rabbit Breeders
Association shows," she explained.
She said various rabbit breeds
can be researched online at the
American Rabbit Breeders Associa-
tion web site.
If they do get a rabbit and want
more information, or they can call
us too," she said.
The Okeechobee Extension
Office can refer callers to local rab-
bit breeders. There are several rab-
bit breeders in Okeechobee and
among them they have a wide vari-
ety of breeds, Mrs. Heater
explained.
She suggested buying a pure-
bred if they plan to compete in rab-
bit shows.
Rabbits can live indoors or out-
doors. The Extension Office can
provide a packet of information on
rabbit care with plans on how to
build an outdoor rabbit hutch. Mrs.
Heater said it is very important to
keep rabbits out direct sun.,
Rabbits can't tolerate direct sun-
light at all," she said. "You have to
make sure their cage is in the
shade. If sun hits them directly and
they can't get out of it, in less than
10 minutes they can heatstroke and
die."

She said rabbits can do well out-
side in a hutch with a nice plywood
roof with an overhang or under a
shade tree.
The size of the hutch depends
on the size of the rabbit
"The more room they have to
run around, the happier they will
be," she said. :"A little rabbit like a
dwarf can be in a two foot by two
foot cage. Bigger rabbits need a
three foot by three foot cage."
She said if the rabbits are in a
hutch outside, the owner should
have a plan for bringing them
indoors in case of a hurricane. This
can be in a smaller cage or even a
pet carrier.
If rabbits are kept indoors, their
cages and litter box should be
cleaned daily, or it will smell, she
said.
She said use pine bedding for
rabbits, never use cypress bedding.
Cypress bedding can cause rabbits
to go into respiratory distress.
While rabbits can be housebro-
ken fairly easily, they do like to
chew. So they should not be
allowed to roam freely in the house
when the owners are not watching
them.
"If they do have a house bunny
recommend they keep them in
their cage when owners are not at
home to keep an eye on them," she
said. A rabbit might chew an electri-
cal cord and bit through it
Rabbits don't require shots and
rarely get fleas or mites. If they do
get fleas, it is usually from another
house pet.
Rabbits rarely get sick, but if the
bunny gets sick, the owner should
it to take it to a vet, she said.
"If you want to keep them in the
house, get them young so you can
litter train them. You also might
want to get them spayed," she
advised. "If you get more than one
rabbit, consider all boys or all girls
or you are going to have a lot more
rabbits than you want.
For more information on 4-H
Clubs contact the Okeechobee
County Extension Office at 763-
6469.

Abandoned car
This Mercury Cougar was found recently when land was
being cleared along U.S. 441 S.E. in front of the King's
Bay subdivision. Someone had apparently abandoned the
vehicle in the tall grass. According to the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office, the tag had been removed and a
check of the vehicle identification number did not indicate
that the car had been reported stolen. The car was hauled
away to a junkyard in Pahokee.

OHS plan for the end fl....... --
U~~~n~~~k3~r pdl11U t1 i \.'or,^-


By Victoria Hannon


Okeechobee News
The 2006-2007 school year is
coming to a close and with this
ending comes a marriage of activi-
ties at Okeechobee High School.
The closest of these planned
activities are the annual senior jail
and bail. During this event mem-
bers of the senior class go up for
auction to be bailed out after being
jailed for nefarious deeds. The auc-
tion, in which students at Okee-
chobee High School bid for a day
long ownership of their school-
mates, will be held on April 5.
After the students, and occa-
sional administrator, are pur-
chased, the students that bought
them are allowed to force their
slave to dress as they would like
and perform any actions that catch
their passing fancy, with in bounds.
The students that have agreed to be
sold for their class are compelled to
follow the directions of the person
that buys them under threat of
being forced to payback the
money spent on them, out of pock-
et.
The Jail and Bail is held as a sen-
ior fundraiser to provided funds for
the senior class activities. The
largest of the senior activities is the
annual Grad Nite celebration at
Disney's Magic Kingdom. The
event is a final opportunity for the
senior students to take a trip and
enjoy time as a class before gradu-
ation.

Last year the Jail and Bail event
raised $2,000.
Although this event takes place
after the end of ticket sales for Grad
Nite, there is another activity that
the money will go to Gradua-
tion.
"The money made will go
towards graduation," said senior
sponsor Ms. Gina Davis. "Decora-
tions, lights, flowers."
The pinnacle of the year, the
culmination of twelve years of
work, graduation will be held on
May31.
Grad Nite tickets were on sale
for the past week, from March 26
to 30 for $25. If students neglect to
buy tickets in this time frame, then
they have missed their chance, but
if the problem is due to monetary
constraints, the students are asked
to see Mrs. Davis.
Grad Nite will be held on April
28. Students will be gone from 4:30
pm to 7:15 am under the supervi-
sion of Walt Disney chaperones
and a few school chaperones.
Also coming soon to Okee-
chobee High School is the 2007
Prom. -Prom will be held at the
KOAon May5.
You can also go to the school
website and catch up on tests, and
activities at OHS. The website is

'Remembering Bobby' auction ends April 6


By Daniel Shube
When I heard about an auc-
tion that offered the chance to
bid on some once-in-a-lifetime
golf opportunities, I knew this
was something I wanted to
share with my readers. Then I
found out that the charity was
one that I as a journalist felt
compelled to support.
The Robert F. Kennedy
Memorial
(www.rfkmemorial.org) pro-
vides innovative support to
courageous human rights
defenders around the world.
Through long-term partner-
ships, it works directly with
advocates who have won the
RFK Human Rights Award to
boldly confront injustice. Every
year the Memorial honors inves-
tigative journalists and authors
who bring light to injustice
through the RFK Book and Jour-
nalism Awards. With the Speak
Truth to Power program, the
Memorial promotes the value of
human rights and the courage of
its defenders.
The auction can be found
online at www.charitybuzz.com
through April 6.

Here are a few of the golf-
related items that I would be
happy to win:
VIP Access to the 2007 Merrill
Lynch Shootout at Greg Nor-
man's Tiburon course in Naples,
FL with deluxe accommoda-
tions, golf lessons (a clinic host-
ed by the "Shark" himself),
access to his course's Private
Club (the Shark Club)/Estate
Wine Tent and a meet and greet
with Mr. Norman.
An Ireland Golf Dream Vaca-
tion including, five nights of
hotel accommodations for four
people with car and driver
throughout. Tee times for a four-
some at four of Ireland's top ten
courses, including: The K Club
(home of the 2006 Ryder Cup)
designed by Arnold Palmer;
Royal County Down Golf Club- a


championship links course that
is over 100 years old, is located
alongside the Irish Sea; The
Island Golf Club one Ireland's
premiere links courses, 15 min-
utes form Dublin, surrounded
by the Irish Sea; Portmarnock
Golf Club a championship
course, it offering stunning
views of Ireland's Eye and Lam-
bay Island.
How about a round of golf
with former New York Rangers
stars goalie Mike Richter and
defenseman Brian Leetch, or
with Frank Gifford and Ethel
Kennedy. Or a round at Trump
National in Bedminster, N.J.?
As a golfer, those items got
me going. However, there are
dozens of other packages that
are also awesome, such as an
opportunity to smoke a cigar

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their
publishers or corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think,
or to try to control public opinion. Our editors insist on pur-
poseful neutrality. We try to report the news fairly and facili-
tate a fair but vigorous discussion of public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're

The Okeechobee News, Sunday, April 1,2007


Don't giv
Did you ever glance at those
well lit pictures in a magazine and
wish for a room that looked as
inviting as the images in their
pages. We want the feel of those
pictures but we have no clue
where to start to accomplish it.
Don't feel bad because I can help
you get started on your dream
home and it can be done in
babysteps.


Our biggest problem is that we
don't know where to start! We see
the beautifully put together rooms
and we get overwhelmed. Then
we put the magazine down and
give up before we ever get started.
I was scared to death to remod-
el our home. When Robert and I
married ten years ago; I had a
houseful of clutter and so did he.
We put our clutter together and
then went to estate auctions to buy

Get foolish


today, it's


a tradition
"The first of April is the day we
remember what we are the other
364 days of the year," wrote Mark
Twain,
"Hey, isn't that Dogbert sitting
next to Mommy in Family Circus
cartoon? Sure enough, the canine
replaced Barfy. But only for the
day. In 1997, forty-six of the
nation's top syndicated cartoon-
ists played a prank on readers by
drawing each other's newspaper
strips.
How and when did this crazy
day come to be? No joke -- the
custom is thought to date back to
the 1560s or even earlier.
The actual origin of this cus-
tom has been much disputed.
Many theories have been suggest-
ed.
What seems sure is that April
Fools Day is in some way or other
a relic of those pagan festivities
held at the vernal equinox, which
began on the old New Year's Day,
March 25 and ended April 2.
One theory goes like this: In
1582 France became the first
country to switch from the Julian
to the Gregorian calendar estab-
lished by the Council of Trent
(1563). This change meant.
amofhg other things, that the New
Years Day was moved from the
end of March to January 1.
Those "who failed, to keep up
with the change who stub-
bornly clung to the old calendar
system, continuing to celebrate
the New Year between March 25
and April 1 became the victims
of jokes. For instance, pranksters
would sneak up behind them and
stick a dead fish to their backs.
The victims of this prank were
given the epithet "Poisson
d'Avril," or April Fish. Thus, April
Fools Day was born. Today a
paper cut out is substituted for a
dead fish.
It may be that Europe derived
its April-fooling from the French.
France was one of the first nations
to make Jan. 1 officially New
Year's Day. This was in 1564, even
before the adoption of the Grego-
rian calendar. Thus the New
Year's gifts and visits moved to
January 1 from April 1. Those
who disliked this idea or did not
hear about the change (news
traveled slowly in the mid-1500s)
were fair game for those jokers
who amused themselves by send-
ing joke gifts and visiting on April
1. French and Dutch documents
from 1508 and 1539 include refer-
ence to April Fools Day jokes.
Though April 1 appears to
have been observed in Great
Britain as a general festival in
ancient times, it was apparently
not until the beginning of the 18th
century that British folklore links
April Fools Day to the town of
Gotham, the legendary "town of
fools" located in Notting-
hamshire.
According to the legend, it was
traditional in the 13th century for
any road that the King placed his
foot upon to become public prop-
erty. So when the citizens of
Gotham heard that King John
planned to travel through their
town, they refused him entry, not
wishing to lose their main road.
When the King heard this, he sent
soldiers to the town. But when
the soldiers arrived in Gotham,
they found the town full of
lunatics engaged in foolish activi-
ties such as drowning fish or
attempting to cage birds in roof-
less fences. Their foolery s all
an act, but the King fel the
trick and said the town too foolish
to warrant punishment. And ever
since then, April Fools Day has
supposedly, commemorated their
trickery.
Okeechobee folks recall
pranks too. Harley Arnold's broth-
er Freeman was cli

"If you see me get to heaven
and settle up with him first thing, I
want you to know there is good
reason!" said Mr. Harley.


more. We called ourselves upgrad-
ing the furniture that we already
had. Oh we got some great deals
but it is so hard to see what you
have when your home is filled with
clutter.
It was only when we started to
get rid of our clutter that we could
selectively know what we needed
to purchase. It took us about nine
months to slowly eliminate our


clutter. I like to think of it as giving
birth to a new me. As the clutter
disappeared I could see in my
mind's eye what I wanted for our
horoe and not the piles of stuff that
clouded my vision. I began to feel
the peace that I had always
searched for and it was hiding
underneath my hot spots.
Slowly our home became clut-
ter free and peaceful. It still was not
decorated as those pictures in the
magazines, but it hugged us when
we walked in the door. Even with
the green shag carpet from the sev-
enties our home was inviting and
my routines were helping me to
keep our home company ready
just for us. This was a blessing but it
also created another level of fear in
me.
With the clutter gone we could
see that our home needed updat-

ing. Every room in our home need-
ed help. We could actually see the
forest for the first time. We looked
closely at each room. I took a note
pad and put on a different set of
eyes to examine our home. Just
imagine that you are a real estate
agent and you are going to help
your client get their home ready to
sell. Grab a clipboard and your
pen. I am going to walk you
though your home.
We started with our one butt
kitchen and our coppertone appli-
ances. I began to jot down every-
thing that I felt made our home
outdated. Then we looked at the
outside of our home, our bath-,
rooms, living room, bedrooms and
back deck. We examined our heat-


ing unit and our side porch.
Then we went to dinner to dis-
cuss what to do first. This was so
frightening to me. I was afraid of
allowing the clutter and CHAOS, to
invade our home again. Once I
realized that I could do this by tak-
ing babysteps and by taking care of
me during this process; I was will-
ing to take the next step.
You can do this too with your
routines in place to guide you and
by flinging your clutter so that you
have a clean palette to start with.
You will be surprised at how much
better your home will feel when
you love yourself enough to take
babysteps. I will be telling you
more about this in the future. Many
people have this same problem


and we want to help yo.u all have
the confidence to make your home
feel comfortable.
The best compliment I have
ever received is that our home
looks just like us. This is because
we only have things in our home
that make us smile. Are you ready
to FLY into building your dream
home one babystep at a time?
For more help getting rid of
your CHAOS; check out her Web
site and join her free mentoring
group at www.FlyLady.net or her

Times Best Selling book, Body
Clutter published by Fireside.

Pick


produce


like a pro
A lot of the questions I get
asked frequently have to do with
fresh pro-
duce. Not The Dinner
just how to The Dinner
buy it, butt Diva
store it and
maximize
the life of it.
When
you're try- '" -.
ing to be
mindful of by
your LeanneEly
money and n I
making
sure everything gets used up, this
is an important question. We've
all been guilty of opening the
produce drawer of our fridges to
find a green slimy thing in a plas-
tic bag that used to be a head of
lettuce.
To battle the slime fest in your
fridge, you need to know what to
buy that you can store for a
longer period of time, what to
buy sparingly and what to look
for.
The first thing you need to
know is what to look for when
purchasing produce. Obviously,
the more unblemished and the
fresher your produce, the longer
it will last. Wilting, discol-
orations, spots and a dried-out
end will signal to you that that
particular produce selection is
well past its prime and won't last
long. You want heavy melons,
hard apples and fresh smelling
green vegetables. If it smells
fresh, it is. If it doesn't, steer
clear.
Marked down produce,
unless used right away, is usually
not a good purchase. The excep-
tion being overly ripe bananas -
I buy them whenever I can, peel
them, freeze them and use them
for smoothies, but you can use
them for banana bread and other
things, too.
Potatoes, onions and garlic
can all be stored for about a
month. They need to be stored in
a cool place (not the fridge), and
not together (when stored
together, they produce gasses
that spoil both). I.have two bins
in my pantry, fie for onions and
one for potatoes, that keep my
produce friends cool and com-
fortable and keeps them from
sprouting, too.
In the refrigerated section,.
carrots and celery will last a good
two weeks (take the tops off of
carrots to extend their life other-
wise the end; the plant part of the
carrot, will continue to grow and
sap the root part; the part you
eat, causing the carrot to wither
and dry out). While different
fruits like oranges, grapefruits,
lemons, limes, apples and some
grapes all can be stored safely for
two weeks, maybe even three
weeks. Again, the trick is bring-
ing home very fresh produce.
Broccoli and cauliflower will..
easily last the week in your
fridge. The stuff that is tricky is
the fresh greens lettuces and
spinach especially. These need to
be used up within the week. The
way to keep them from going
bad is to plan on having the more
perishable veggies for dinner as
soon as you can after you pur-
chase them. So you'll have a
lovely big green salad for dinner
the day after you've grocery
shopped, a nice spinach salad a
day later and by the time the end
of the week comes 'round, you'll
be down to carrots or scrounging
the freezer for frozen green
beans. That's okay you
haven't wasted a thing; you
should be proud!
To maximize the life of your
produce, make sure they are kept
in the produce drawers of the
refrigerator (there is better
humidity in there than the rest of
your fridge), get the air out of the
bags they're in as best you can,
and check the temperature of
your drawers they should be
right at about 40 degrees.
And remember, don't refriger-
ate tomatoes they will contin-
ue to ripen if they're left out and
will taste better. Hard squashes
such as butternut and acorn
squash and sweet potatoes also


don't need refrigeration, but will
fair well in the pantry with your
onions and potatoes.
Fresh produce can be both a
healthy choice and a budget
saver when bought in season
(seasonal produce is cheaper)
and in the right quantities. Just
remember that a bargain isn't a
bargain if it rots in your fridge!

Today in History


Today is Palm Sunday, April 1,
the 91st day of 2007. There are
274 days left in the year. This is
April Fool's Day.
Today's Highlight in History:
In 1970, President Nixon
signed a measure banning ciga-
rette advertising on radio anditel-
evision, to take effect after Jan. 1,
1971.
In 1984, recording star Marvin
Gaye was shot to death by his
father, Marvin Gay Sr., in Los
Angeles. The elder Gay pleaded


guilty to voluntary manslaughter,
and received probation.
In 1987, in his first major
speech on the AIDS epidemic,
President Reagan told doctors in
Philadelphia, "We've declared
AIDS public health enemy num-
ber one."
In 2003, American troops
entered a hospital in Nasiriyah,.
Iraq, and rescued Army Private
1st Class Jessica Lynch, who'd
been held prisoner since her unit
was ambushed.


One year ago: Former hostage
Jill Carroll arrived in Germany,
where she strongly disavowed
statements she had made during
captivity in Iraq and shortly after
her release, saying she had been
repeatedly threatened. Two
American pilots were killed
when their Apache helicopter
was shot down near Baghdad.
Thought for Today: "Pierre
qui roule n'amasse pas mousse."
(A rolling stone gathers no
moss.) French proverb,
