08/03/11 - NNHS Newsletter - Bridge Over Troubled Water

Black are the brooding clouds and troubled the deep waters,
when the Sea of Thought, first heaving from a calm, gives up its Dead..

- Charles Dickens, The Chimes, Third Quarter
(07 Feb 1812 - 09 June 1870)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

     Ah - a blast from the past!

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_a46WJ1viA - Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon and Garfunkel, 1970

BONUS #2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9agbyJ5_mg - Bridge Over Troubled Water - Paul Simon (and Robert De Niro), 09/21/01


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridge_over_Troubled_Water_%28song%29:

"Bridge Over Troubled Water" is the title song of Simon & Garfunkel's album of the same name. The single was released on January 26, 1970, though it also appears on the live album Live 1969. It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart on February 28, 1970, and stayed at the top of the chart for six weeks. "Bridge Over Troubled Water" also topped the adult contemporary chart in the U.S. for six weeks.[1]

This song's recording process exposed many of the underlying tensions that eventually led to the breakup of the duo after the album's completion. Most notably, Paul Simon has repeatedly expressed regret over his insistence that Art Garfunkel sing this song as a solo, as it focused attention on Garfunkel and relegated Simon to a secondary position. Art Garfunkel initially did not want to sing lead vocal, feeling it was not right for him. "He felt I should have done it," Paul Simon revealed to Rolling Stone in 1972.

Garfunkel said that the moment when he performed it at a 1972 Madison Square Garden benefit concert, as part of a one-off reunion with Simon, was "almost biblical."

In performances on the 2003 "Old Friends" tour, Simon and Garfunkel have taken turns singing alternate verses of the vocal.

Rolling Stone named it number 47 on The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time...

YESTERDAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:

BEN BUTLER BANS BOOZE, BADLY


Maj. Gen. Benjamin Butler, although not much for battlefield command, usually had considerable talent for efficient administration. This was not much in evidence today as he addressed the problem of drunkenness among the troops at Ft. Monroe, at Hampton Roads, Va. He went about this in a straightforward manner, simply outlawing the sale of intoxicating beverages to the soldiers. This worked about as well as prohibition ever does: booze was found at one time or another stored in gun barrels, cannon tubes, and canteens. Similar prohibitions were tried in other areas by other generals, with pretty much the same results.

Saturday, Aug. 2, 1862
ARMY AMBULANCE ACTIVATION ANNOUNCED


It seemed like a minor bureaucratic maneuver at the time: after considerable backstage work Dr. Jonathan Letterman, Medical Director of the Army of the Potomac, announced today the establishment of the Army Ambulance Corps. In fact the army had always had ambulances, but they were under the control of the Quartermaster Corps, and tended to be treated like any other wagons, hauling any supplies that came to hand. Now under Letterman’s control, they were to be stocked only with medical supplies. The effect on the care and treatment of the wounded would be considerable.

Sunday, Aug. 2, 1863
CUMMINGS CONFLICT CREATES CHARLESTON CONSTERNATION


It was not a happy time in Richmond. Gettysburg was lost, Vicksburg had fallen, the nation was cut in half. And today came an escalation of the threat in a new quarter: Charleston, South Carolina, the hotbed and originator of the secession crisis that created the Confederacy. In Charleston Harbor, near Cummings Point on Morris Island, Federal gunboats came to call. They assaulted the Confederate steamer Chesterfield. Although the attack was indecisive and not pursued, it was considered an omen of new attacks to come.

Tuesday, Aug. 2, 1864
MECHANICS, MUDSILLS MAKE MILITARY MIGHT MEANINGFUL


The Confederate States of America had its share and more of brave and insightful military commanders and troops. What it never had was the industrial infrastructure to support these troops in the field. An example of what such support could mean was growing rapidly at City Point, Virginia. This was where Gen. Grant chose to locate his supply base for his men in the siege of Petersburg. Huge bakeries provided fresh bread instead of hardtack. Warehouses were built for supplies, ammunition dumps kept weapons operating. There was even a network of railroad tracks built to get these supplies to where they were needed. Recreational opportunities were not overlooked, although certainly not officially sanctioned. An entire village of prostitutes was in operation.


TODAY IN THE WAR BETWEEN THE STATES:

From http://www.civilwarinteractive.com/This%20Day/thisday0803.htm - INCLUDING:

Saturday, Aug. 3, 1861
CONGRESSIONAL CONSTRUCTION CONTRACTS CONSIDERED


It was a slow time on the battlefield, but more was happening in the halls of the US Congress. Actions recently passed and awaiting action included approval and funding for “one or more” armored ships and floating batteries. There was also a proposal to reorganize the Army. Finally, orders were issued to the Navy to blockade Southern ports by the interesting technique of taking old, otherwise useless ships and filling them with rocks. They were then to be taken to the offending ports and sunk to block traffic in and out.

Sunday, Aug. 3, 1862
MCCLELLAN MAKES MILITARY MOVE


Gen. George McClellan was on the move today, but it was not entirely voluntary. He had been ordered by Gen. Henry Wager Halleck who sent formal orders requiring McClellan to move the Army of the Potomac off the Peninsula, where he had been for some time, to the area around Aquia Landing, Va.. The dual purpose of this was to give additional protection for Washington DC. and back up Gen. John Pope’s Army of Virginia, which was under attack. McClellan was severely opposed to this move, but had no choice in the matter.

Monday, Aug. 3, 1863
RAPPAHANNOCK RUMBLING RAPIDLY REDUCING


As the casualties from the Second Battle of Brandy Station had their wounds and injuries tended to, a general calm settled over the Rappahannock valley. Lee was hard at work getting resupply for his Army of Northern Virginia, including the army itself. The problem of straggling was becoming a serious matter, as troops would take informal leave to tend to family emergencies, then not come back. Jefferson Davis had recently issued one of his offers of amnesty to any who returned within 20 days.

Wednesday, Aug. 3, 1864
LINCOLN LAMENTS LACKADAISICAL LEADERS


Since the beginning of the War Between the States, the great work, and the great frustration, of Abraham Lincoln had been to find generals not only to win battles, but willing to fight them at all. He had found one in Ulysses S. Grant, but Grant could not be everywhere at once. Lincoln wrote him today that his plan to follow the enemy “to the death” would not “be done nor attempted unless you watch it every day, and hour, and force it.” Lincoln did not know that Grant entirely agreed, and already had one answer, named Phil Sheridan.



WHERE'S     CAROL?!?

  From Brenda Shepard McCoy ('67) of VA - 08/02/11, 9:53 PM:

Hi Carol,

Just wanted to check and see if you could see what may have deleted me from the Newsletter (mailing list).  I have not received any this week; last issue received was July 22.   Really miss not hearing the news of the day and I appreciate all your hard work.  

Many thanks to You.  

Brenda S McCoy   Class of 1967
 


      From Phil Hammond ('64) of FL - 08/03/11, 11:26 AM - "off the site":

Hey there, Carol,

Please check to see if
   Sylvia (Hall Hammond - '66 - of FL) and I are still on your list. We have not been getting your great letter lately.

Hot in Florida,

philhammond@comcast.net

sylviahammond26@yahoo.com
 

      From Dimples Dinwiddie Prichard ('58) of NC - 08/03/11, 2:12 PM - "Where are you?"

It has been a while since I have received an email.  Are you doing OK or are you partying ?

Dimples

    Thank you, Brenda, Phil, and Dimples! It's nice to be missed! All your names are still there on my mailing list; I just hadn't sent out any announcements since 07/22 because I've done precious little work since then (and the announcements themselves often seem to be as much work as the Newsletters).

         My Sister, Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky ('59) of NC, told me lately that she was good with excuses, but that I have her topped. Let's give this one a whirl:

a. I've been sick.
b. I've had difficulty concentrating and the slightest thing distracted me from my work.
c. I've been spending quality time with family, friends, and neighbors.
d. I was asked to substitute teach a couple of classes at church lately, and needed time to prepare my lessons.
e. I've been organizing and decorating my new home.
f. Three people asked to have their names removed from my mailing list within the space of ten days, and I thought I was being a pest.
g. Any combination of the above.
h. All of the above.

   The correct answer is h.  Sorry!

   To further complicate issues, we will be leaving to go back to Illinois and Southeast Missouri for a few days next Wednesday, August 10.  When we moved here, Paul drove the Budget moving van, and we left our own Plymouth van with our son.  We've been without a vehicle since early June, and dependent on Eleanor and a few others to take us wherever we needed to go.  It's time to reclaim it (as well as a few more of our possessions which didn't make it with us), so we can get back into the swing of things - as well as for the two of us to be able to obtain employment - which will come in real handy!

   We're renting a car and driving out; we're timing the trip to include Paul's Lewis Family Reunion in Cape Girardeau, Missouri on Sunday, August 14.  I don't even know what day we're coming back here to Fayetteville.....
 


  From Brenda Shepard McCoy ('67) of VA - 08/03/11, 6:40 PM:

Carol,

Thank you so much for your reply. I hope you don't think I was complaining, never would I do that. You work so hard on this for the Typhoon classes and it is truly appreciated. I understand being busy, and knowing a busy schedule. Hope you are feeling better and all is well. My prayers and thanks to you again for all your hard work.

Brenda S. McCoy

   No, of course I didn't think you were complaining, Brenda! ... I'm feeling better, and my mind is focusing better than it was. I learned the hard way several years ago not to write things when my brain wasn't in gear!

   Thanks again!



  From Shirley Eanes Matthews ('66) of VA - 08/03/11, 6:15 PM - "107,500":

Dear Carol,

Hit no. 107,500 was me - a little after 5 pm last Friday.  I hadn't written to you about it since we had not heard from you for a while and I wasn't sure you could get my email.

Hope everything and everyone are OK. 

Shirley Eanes Matthews ('66)

   Shirley, this is going to sound weird (even for me!), but I rather thought it was you who made that page hit! Thanks for letting me know - and congratulations!

    From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 08/01/11 - "Our Old Stomping Grounds - W.T. Grant Company":

Hi, Carol:

Just wanted to share a brief note. Upon furnishing the family of the founder of W.T. Grant Company some of my experience with respect to the failure and bankruptcy of this fine company, such a pleasant surprise greeted me with the delivery of the postal mail. The family sent me a beautiful book, Biblio, Scheide Library, Princeton University, by Natasha D'Schommer Grant. The outstanding photographs were taken by Natasha. Nice folk.
 
 
Though you might like to see a photo image of the book sent to me as a gift from the W.T. Grant family.
 
Breathtaking photos of very rare books and bibles.

TYPHOON Regards,
Joe Madagan ('57) of FL

   OH, WOW! Isn't that wonderful - how people you've never met send you extraordinary tokens of appreciation! That's one of the great blessings of living in the Age of the Internet! Thanks for sharing this with us, Adonis!

From http://www.selfgrowth.com - 08/01/11 - "Mindset":

How to Lose it and Never Miss a Beat

By PJ McClure
 

"The one thing you can't take away from me is the way I choose to respond to what you do to me. The last of one's freedoms is to choose ones attitude in any given circumstance."
-Viktor Frankl

How to lose everything and never miss a beat

"We have a fire!"

Slowly waking from my Nyquil induced sleep, I struggled to understand what my wife was saying. "We've got what?"

"We have a fire," she said with enough emotion to bring me to consciousness.

I stumbled out of the bedroom and toward some unusual noises in the garage. When I opened the door, the heat from 50 holiday ovens hit me in the face and smoke filled the garage with an ominous, orange pulse.

Slamming the door, I ran back toward the bedroom. "Grab the kids and call 911!"

My wife grabbed our three year-old daughter and I got our six year-old son. When we hit the door, our neighbor, in his bathrobe, was running toward the front door with his cell phone. He had already dialed emergency services and was giving them all of the details they needed to dispatch the fire department.

We made our way over to his house and made sure everyone was ok. I went back out to wait for the fire department and started to assess the situation. Within a couple of minutes, plumes of flame popped up through the roof in different areas. The fire was in the attic and all over the house. A massive blaze consumed the garage and any serious hope of recovering anything faded.
By the time the sun rose, our lives and pajamas were what remained.

My family and I began doing...well, what we do! We figured out our immediate needs, what our next steps were, and took action to get things moving. In a matter of days, we had life back to normal, relatively speaking, and kept moving our lives forward.

The most unusual and serendipitous part of the experience was how people responded to us. Not the outpouring of kindness and generosity, though that was pretty amazing. What caught me off guard was how people reacted when they realized that we weren't distraught and immobilized by what was going on.

In some cases, I would be willing to say that they were even... a little disappointed.

"How can you be so calm and motivated right now?"

"You act like nothing happened!" And my favorite...

"Doesn't it bother you that you lost everything? You must just be in shock."

I actually laughed out loud when I heard the last one. In shock? Really? When you stand in your neighbor's yard for four hours and watch all of your material possessions evaporate, reality is very palpable, and any shock floats away with the smoke.

What I began explaining to people is what I want to share with you, via this long introduction. Events in life are constant and impartial. Not unfair. Impartial. It is up to us to give the events meaning and decide how we will carry on once they've occurred.

My mindset, then and now, is designed to focus on possibility and productivity. When events like the fire hit, my mindset takes all of the data and acts as a filter. Not as a way to turn a blind-eye toward the hardship, but to give me the kind of information I need to further my purposes.

This filtering process makes me more efficient and successful than I could be otherwise. It allowed me to go through any event and stay on pace and productive, because I've decided that's how I want to be.

Yes, we still cried, cussed, and missed things we had always taken for granted. A well-crafted mindset makes you resilient, not inhuman. Nevertheless, the point is, the event didn't dictate to us how we would behave. That was under our control.

In fact, in that same year, I finished a bachelor degree, began a masters, and my young (39) wife had a freak heart attack. Put a total loss house fire on the end of it and we had enough 'yuck' and stress in one year to justify some cynicism and negativity. Instead, we rallied as a family, became even closer, and oh by the way, grew our income 600%. This was only possible because of mindset.

I hear you out there..."That's great, mindset guy, but what does that mean for me?" It means everything! Our mindsets are active and filtering the world for us every day, whether we're conscious of it or not.

So how do we get conscious and take control?

Take 100% responsibility for your life. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter who's fault it is. What are you going to do about it? Abdicating responsibility doesn't get you off the hook for making something happen. Instead, it renders you powerless and a victim.

Get clear about what you want. Just like ancient mariners used the compass to maintain direction during storms, your clearly defined objectives point the way forward when all hell breaks loose. You can steer yourself to clear waters instead of getting dashed against the rocks.

Purposely look for opportunities. To build your unshakable mindset, you'll need a little practice. When you are clear about what you want, consciously look for ways to get closer. Soon enough, you'll retrain your brain to show you the best path through.

Pay attention to your dominant emotions. When life strikes, are you drawn to finding blame or to correcting your course? I don't mean for anyone to ignore the emotions that pull us back, but don't give them all of your power. Grieve, mourn, get angry...but then bring your emotional awareness back to possibility.

An alternative to taking conscious control of your mindset is to allow the world at-large to shape it for you. Any takers? Ok then, make the decision now, that you are in control of your life and events will no longer kick the chair out from under you.

Soon, your mind will begin to do the sifting and sorting for you, leaving you free to act on the new opportunities that you never knew were there before.

Bridge Over Troubled Water

Written by Paul Simon (b. 13 Oct 1941)

Recorded by Simon & Garfunkel, 1970
 

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all...all...
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you (ooh)
I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

Sail on Silver Girl,
Sail on by
Your time has come to shine
All your dreams are on their way
See how they shine
Oh, if you need a friend
I'm sailing right behind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind
