One Way or Another

“If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity
it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold your head high,
look it squarely in eye and say, 'I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.'”

- Ann Landers (Esther "Eppie" Pauline Friedman Lederer)
(04 July 1918 - 22 June 2002)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Just a friendly reminder that your income taxes must be filed today. The Post Office, noting that more and more people are filing online, will NOT be staying open until midnight to accommodate you as in years past.  I do hope you have them finished or at least filed for an extension, because one way or another.....

 
... You have a few more days to get your tax return to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 2017: Tax Day will be Tuesday, April 18, 2017, instead of April 15, 2017.

Traditionally, Tax Day is April 15 unless that date falls on a Saturday or a Sunday, in which case the due date for federal income tax returns gets pushed ahead to the next business day. In some years, the District of Columbia observes Emancipation Day on the same day as Tax Day, which affects the nation’s tax filing deadline – so the deadline gets moved.

In 2017, Tax Day falls on a Saturday. That means that Tax Day should get pushed ahead to Monday, April 17, 2017 – but it doesn’t. Emancipation Day falls on Monday, April 17, (as does Patriots Day, which can push deadlines out in some states) this year. Since that's a legal holiday in the District of Columbia, the tax filing deadline will be pushed ahead for all individual taxpayers to Tuesday, April 18, 2017.

Good news, right?

Still don't think you'll be ready on time? Just file for an extension. It’s always better to file a complete, correct return on extension than a rushed, flawed return by April 18. Plus, you don’t need to tell anyone why you’re filing for extension – even the IRS – since the extension is granted automatically if you follow the rules. It doesn't increase your chances of audit and there's no penalty so long as you pay what you owe before April 18. Remember, an extension is an extension of the time to file, not the time to pay.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Way_or_Another:

"One Way or Another" is a song by American New Wave band Blondie.

Written by Debbie Harry and Nigel Harrison for the band's third studio album, Parallel Lines (1978), the song was inspired by one of Harry's ex-girlfriends who stalked him after their break up.[1] The song was released as the fourth single in the US as the follow-up to "Heart of Glass". "One Way or Another" reached number twenty-four in the Billboard Hot 100. Although never officially released as a single in the United Kingdom, the song charted there in February 2013. Rolling Stone ranked the song #298 on its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[2]

The song was included on the US and Canadian versions of the band's first hits compilation, The Best of Blondie (1981), but not on international releases.

Blondie released a manipulated live version of the song (with the audience noise removed) as the theme for the 1999 US television series Snoops. This version was released in the US as a bonus track on the US Live version of their album Livid (Live).[3] The original un-edited live version was included on the European / non-US Livid version...[4]

         From Bill Lee (Warwick HS - '54) of NC - 04/14/10 - "WW II date":

Carol:

April 18th this year will mark the (74th) anniversary of the famous Doolittle Raid on Tokyo. I leave it up to you to report on the raid itself, but offer the following since I'm pretty sure your source for such abbreviated announcements won't include some NNS connections (below) which I am sure will be of interest to your readers....

  The so-called Doolittle Raid got started on December 21, 1941 when FDR expressed a desire that Japan be bombed as soon as possible to boost American morale following the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The military quickly determined that it seemed possible that a medium army bomber (B-25) could fly off an aircraft carrier and do the job. Two were loaded onboard USS HORNET (CV-8) and secretly and successfully flown off on February 3, 1942 (at-sea recovery was not possible for that large an aircraft in 1942). Construction of the HORNET had been completed by Newport News Shipbuilding just a few months before, in October, 1941.

 

 

 
Army Air force Lt. Colonel Jimmy Doolittle was put in charge of the secret project. Sixteen B-25s were modified for the over-water mission and then flown to Alameda, California. On April 1, 1942 they were loaded onboard HORNET and tied down as far aft on the flight deck as possible. All of the HORNET's aircraft were stored below, in the hangar bay.    
 
 
  HORNET sailed westward the next day and met up with north of Hawaii with a task force that included the carrier ENTERPRISE (CV-6); built by NNS and delivered in 1938. Until the B-25s could be launched, ENTERPRISE's aircraft were the only air cover that could be provided to the task force as it approached Japan. 
 
 

Tactical circumstances dictated that the raid be launched earlier than originally planned, several hundred miles off the Japanese coast. After the raid commenced, the carriers returned unharmed to Pearl Harbor to prepare for their next assignments. Their sister ship, the USS YORKTOWN (CV-5), was also there, having battle damage repaired following the Battle of the Coral Sea. YORKTOWN was the lead ship in that class that totaled three carriers - all of which were built at NNS.
 
   
 
 

YORKTOWN and HORNET were lost during later actions during World War II. ENTERPRISE survived the war, but was latter scrapped. Three other carriers, all built at NNS, carried on their names, and their aircraft carrier traditions. The second carriers to be named YORKTOWN, and the second HORNET are museum ships. The second ENTERPRISE, the first of a fleet of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers built (and building) at NNS has now been in commission for almost 49 years. 

The Doolittle Raid, as history analyses it, did little material damage, but did have some other benefits. But the news of the raid caused American morale to soar, and severely shocked the Japanese, which caused them to pull back some of their far-flung forces to defend their homeland.

When the raid was first announced, a reporter had asked the President where the attack started. FDR responded "Shangri-La", which was the name of a mysterious place of supposedly perpetual youth in the Himalalas identified in the then-popular book and movie: Lost Horizon.

Doolittle was later promoted and presented the Medal of Honor by FDR. In 1944, the Navy named one of its carriers USS SHANGRI-LA, in honor of the raid. That carrier was not built by NNS, but it was built to the NNS-created and super-successful ESSEX-Class design just across Hampton Roads at the Norfolk Navy Yard. Appropriately enough, SHANGRI-LA was christened by Mrs. Jimmy Doolittle.

 

On April 21, 1992, as part of the nation's 50th anniversary remembrance of World War II accomplishments, two restored B-25s thundered down the flight deck of the USS RANGER (CV-61) and took flight. You guessed it: RANGER was yet another of the many carriers built by the craftsmen of Newport News Shipbuilding.

Now you know many (but perhaps not all) of the Newport News connections to the story of this historic event.

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 04/17/17:
 

Rhonda’s dishwasher quit working, so she called a repairman. As she had to go to work the next day, she told the repairman, “I’ll leave the key under the mat. Fix the dishwasher, leave the bill on the counter, and I’ll mail you a check. Oh, by the way, don’t worry about my bulldog. He won’t bother you. But, whatever you do, do NOT, under ANY circumstances, talk to my parrot! I REPEAT, DO NOT TALK TO MY PARROT!!!”

When the repairman arrived at Rhonda’s apartment the following day, he discovered the biggest, meanest looking bulldog he had ever seen. But, just as she had said, the dog just lay there on the carpet watching the repairman go about his work.

The parrot, however, drove him nuts the whole time with his incessant yelling and name calling. Finally the repairman couldn’t contain himself any longer and yelled, “Shut up, you stupid ugly bird!”

To which the parrot replied, “Get him, Spike!”

One way or another I'm gonna find ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna win ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna see ya
I'm gonna meetcha meetcha meetcha meetcha
One day, maybe next week
I'm gonna meetcha, I'm gonna meetcha, I'll meetcha
I will drive past your house
And if the lights are all down
I'll see who's around

One way or another I'm gonna find ya
I'm gonna getcha getcha getcha getcha
One way or another I'm gonna win ya
I'll getcha, I'll getcha
One way or another I'm gonna see ya
I'm gonna meetcha meetcha meetcha meetcha
One day, maybe next week
I'm gonna meetcha, I'll meetcha

And if the lights are all out
I'll follow your bus downtown
See who's hanging out

One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna give you the slip, a slip of the lip or another
I'm gonna lose ya, I'm gonna trick ya
One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna trick ya trick ya trick ya trick ya
One way or another I'm gonna lose ya
I'm gonna give you the slip

I'll walk down the mall
Stand over by the wall
Where I can see it all
Find out who ya call
Lead you to the supermarket checkout
Some specials and rat food, get lost in the crowd

One way or another I'm gonna getcha, I'll getcha, I'll getcha getcha
getcha getcha
(Where I can see it all, find out who ya call)
One way or another I'm gonna getcha, I'll getcha, I'll getcha getcha
