GWEN PARMLEY

Two North Carolina middle school teachers have long known that there isn't an even playing field for all children at Christmas Martha Ann Harper and Gwen Parmley, who have always been involved in crafts, began the Coastal Carolina Christmas Arts, Craft, and Gift Show to raise money to provide for needy children back in 1991. And this year again, they'll have a show, at the Craven County Fairgrounds. Proceeds will benefit children from Pamlico Middle School, where Harper teaches an eighth-grade class and Gwen is a sixth-grade instructor. The show showcases the work -- personalized, one-of-a-kind, handmade and unique items -- and talent of vendors from along the East Coast. Last year's show attracted more than 2,500 shoppers. "Doing this show allows Gwen and me the opportunity to take children shopping for needed items such as clothes and supplies, and of course, to be able to buy something they'd like to have," Harper said. The children they help extend into the Pamlico County community and over the years they have developed a network of concerned people who pass on names of worthy children. Harper said the holiday fund-raiser is an extension of the teacher's role in educating the children. "Our endeavors to help children are not a once-a-year commitment," she said. "We work year round helping them. Being an effective teacher does not stop at providing the ‘three Rs.' "

  • Jalen Parmele, the sixth-round draft this year out of Toledo was signed off the Miami Dolphins' practice squad and picked up by the Baltimore Ravens. To make room for him on the roster, the Ravens placed defensive tackle Lamar Divens on injured reserve. Coach John Harbaugh says the Ravens had been studying Jalen all year and felt like he was the best player the team could bring in.
  • Jessie Parmelee, the manager of RCC Solar, a solar-panel-installation company in Upland, Calif., says money is drying up for Californians seeking rebates from big utility companies. "The levels are dropping," said Jessie who doesn't think state lawmakers will reinstate the money when it runs out. "Their point wasn't to go 'green'; it was to eliminate rolling blackouts and to put so many green houses on the (electricity) grid." She said she believes the two-county Inland Empire region has the potential to becoming the state's capital for energy-efficient technology. "But it's a matter of getting everybody on board and getting people to realize this is a long-term investment."
  • John Parmley, director of healthcare risk management programs at Standard Register, was quoted in a story about helping hospitals reduce adverse drug events with the Dayton, Ohio, company's new Rx History Capture service. The program combines prescription data and a hospital's health information systems to generate a snapshot of each patient's prescription medication history."The current processes for gathering medication history are inconsistent and error-prone," John says. "They leave the door open to [adverse drug events]. Rx History Capture introduces greater accuracy and efficiency to the process by providing clinicians timely prescription information from trusted sources."

  • Nichole Parmelly, a spokeswoman.for the Larimer County human services, says her agency and others like it across Colorado, has seen a double-digit increase in demand for services. "Families that used to be able to make ends meet before," Nichole said. "That's forcing them to try to come up with alternatives to pay the bills. Or they're able to pay the bills, but then they've got nothing left for food."
  • Parmalee, the band played at a recent benefit for the Fallen Heroes Fund at Hooligans Pub and Music Hall in Jacksonville, N.C.
  • Rhovina Parmalee, who turned 90 on Thanksgiving, has been a resident at Meadow View Manor, a 99-bed facility at Grass Valley, Calif., for six months. She said she knew the time was coming when she would need assistance, especially at night. "I decided it was a good thing to do," Rhovina said. "It’s better to be aware of your surroundings rather than come in under painful circumstances." She gravitated to Meadow View Manor in large part because there is a rose garden and room to walk outside. While she regrets losing her privacy, she knew there would be tradeoffs. "Going out in the garden helps," she said. "I go out and work my sudoku."
  • Scott Thomas Parmley, the 23-year-old Ste. Genevieve, Mo., man faces up to 10 years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000, when he is sentenced in February after pleading guilty Dec.1 to one felony count of possession of child pornography on his computer.

JAMES PARMELEE

The Loudoun County, Va., Board of Supervisors put before voters in November a tax on ready-to-eat food sold at restaurants, concession stands and grocery stores, which would not exceed 4 percent, to pay off school debt. A coalition opposing the idea said the county needed to reevaluate its spending and look at other sources for revenue, such as implementing late fees at public libraries and taxing aircraft at the county's airports. Those speaking out against the proposal at a news conference at The Dock restaurant in Lansdowne were conservative advocate James Parmelee, left, president of a political communications firm in Washington; Nicholas Graham of Ashburn; Patricia Phillips, a Republican who ran unsuccessfully for the state Senate in 2007; and Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling). A near-final count showed that the tax was going down to defeat, 92,015 to 41,100.

These other family members, listed alphabetically, appeared in recent news stories:

  • Abbie Parmele, the Rensselaer, N.Y., artist's photo “Blue, Yellow, and Red" was judged Best of Show in color photography at the Jasper County Art League-Prairie Arts Council's sixth annual photography show and competition.

  • Amber Parmley, the 28-year-old Grove City, Ohio, woman was involved in a police chase. Grove City officers responded to a report of a man wheeling an unboxed $719 television set in a shopping cart out the front door of a business. Two employees asked him for a receipt, but he told them he had already paid and proceeded to the store's outer vestibule, where he took the TV out of the cart. As two other employees gave chase, he fled on foot, TV still in hand. A police officer patrolling the parking lot confronted the man at his vehicle, opening the car door and ordering him out. Instead of complying, the man hit the accelerator, dragging the officer alongside the car and over the officer's foot. The officer managed to deploy his Taser, which slowed the man enough for the officer to wrench himself free of the car. The stunned driver finally stopped at the edge of the parking lot, where he got out of his car and retrieved the TV from where he'd placed it, on the car roof, and drove out of the lot. Another Grove City officer picked up the pursuit, following the car north on Interstate 71. With the driver refusing to stop for police lights and sirens, the chase moved into Columbus. At the intersection of Oakley and Springmont, the driver struck a Columbus cruiser, whose two officers got out of their car and drew their weapons. The man failed to comply with those officers, and backed up at a high rate of speed, ramming into a Grove City cruiser. The driver took another running start and was off again. Officers from both cities pursued the car until a Grove City cruiser was able to ram into the back of the vehicle. As the driver fled on foot, police said they found Amber inside the car. John Skaggs, 29, of Grove City was arrested after a pursuit by Columbus police on the ground and in a helicopter. "I wanted to stay with my car to make sure I kept it," she later said.

  • Jason Parmley, the Navy lieutenant and bomb-assembly officer aboard the USS John C. Stennis, was a member of the division that earned its Mine Readiness Certification. "During the turn-around training cycle, one of the integral components ... is our ability to build aircraft-laid mines,” said Jason said. "It prepares us and the air wing to deny any potential foe the ability to use a strategic waterway or a harbor." While aviation ordnance men practice mine-building every day, he said, "we do it only as required. They came out and showed us some nuances and some of the ways they have learned over the years to expedite building these mines. ... If we had all these items already built up aboard the ship, they would occupy an inordinate amount of space. It makes a lot more sense to have these components broken down, and then we can store them and maximize the space we have on the ship."
  • Jeff Parmelee, coordinator of a program that has hired adults with Down syndrome to work at McClatchy High School's teen center in Sacramento, Calif.

Purkey has held the seat since 1986. Both candidates took a shot at him in 2005: Schmidt, a Republican at the time, lost in the primary; John fell in the general election with 29% of the vote. Purkey amassed $101,000 for this campaign, Schmidt, 60, owner of a construction materials company, had $52,000, and John reported $900. John, 66, campaigned for a 3- to 5-cent-a-gallon gas tax increase. "A lot of people say boo to this, but if you're going to use the roads, pay for it," he said. John also said he'd push to make it illegal for motorists to use cell phones, ban Sunday liquor sales, and legislate against baggy pants. "Exposing their underwear, they think it's fashionable--but it isn't cool."

Mallett, 43, of Narragansett was released on $50,000 personal recognizance after his arraignment on two felony counts each for unlawful appropriation of funds and accessing a computer for fraudulent purposes.
  • Russell Parmelee, the Godfrey Lee School Board trustee reassured residents that there was no need for damage control after resignations of the superintendent and the board president. "We don't have to reassure that the district is going to be OK," Russell said after the board leader quit. "We're moving forward in a very positive way." Jack Wallington resigned as superintendent after facing a board-proposed pay cut and criticism of his management of the Wyoming, Mich., district. The board's president, Pamela Hoezee, followed suit, a move which Russell called a "complete surprise."
  • Stephanie Parmley, she and other parents in the Whitehall, Mich., District Schools have petitioned the school board to reopen an investigation into allegations raised in the football program and asked for the coaches' removal. “This is a public outcry of what is happening in the high school program,” Stephanie, who has 11 children in the district, told the board. She said that while the parents believe the coaches may be coaching for the right reasons, “they should not be coaching because they cannot constructively create a healthy relationship with our kids.” After the last game of the season, the head coach submitted his resignation.
  • Stewart Parmele, a partner with Michael L. Piels Certified Public Accountants, says the Ashland, Ore., School District has passed its annual financial audit with no major concerns despite using an "antiquated" payroll system that creates the potential for many mistakes.

Our Mishawaka, Ind., cousin says he is being stopped by people who think he's little-known actor ever since "Superbad" came to theaters about a year ago. "First time someone told me that, I blew it off. As more people saw the movie, I got more comments," Josh said. The actor, he says "is geeky. I can be geeky but not as geeky as him." Josh expects more comments and people stopping to take his photo as Mintz-Plasse's second movie, "Role Models," is released soon. Josh, a student at Indiana University, South Bend, is the son of Jim and Joan Parmley ... and he's the one on the left. (Photo credit: South Bend Tribune)

JACKIE PARMLY

Jackie's weight issues began at 18, when, during her first pregnancy, she ballooned to 270 pounds. It was 10 years later before she was able to lose any of the weight. "I managed to lose about 20 pounds by starving myself, eating only salads. Then I started with the diet pills, ephedrine, Slim-Fast," she said. "Anything that said 'lose weight fast' on the package, I was poppin' it." Her diet was a typical low-fat, low-calorie one, but then she developed an eating disorder on purpose. "I began a vicious cycle of binge and purge. I figured I could eat whatever I wanted as long as I didn't let it digest in my stomach." She even started smoking because she had heard cigarettes killed your appetite. But then, in January 2005, the father of her children died of a stroke and she realized that she needed to start taking better care of herself. "It was time to start something, and stick with it," she said. So, in March 2005, at age 30, Jackie started a regular exercise routine of simply walking. She replaced soda pop with water as her daily walking route increased to two miles. In about five months, Jackie had lost 40 pounds. But then she "stopped walking and started slipping on my diet because I was hungry all the time -- eating salads and tiny little portions that were just not filling me up. Unfortunately, I ended up gaining it all back." Jackie felt like she was destined to be stuck at over 250 pounds forever. "I hated myself and felt like a failure," she said. One day at a bookstore, Jackie was found a copy of "Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution." She was familiar with the low-carb diet and was aware of the negative stories about it in the media. "I just could not understand how eating so much eggs, bacon, and other delicious and filling foods including all the great vegetables and salads could help you lose weight!" Nevertheless, after reading others' success stories at SparkPeople.com, she gave it a go. She lost 13 pounds in the first two weeks and then discovered she had a candida yeast infection that required a month's treatment before she could resume her diet. Now she's losing two to three pounds a week -- in this picture she's at 200 on her way to a goal of 140 -- has quit smoking, is exercising regularly again. "I am still walking two miles every day and I do Pilates at least three times a week along with crunches and jumping rope. Plus, I do yoga twice a week," she said. "I love my new life, I love myself, and I am so grateful for all the people who have impacted me on this journey." Keep at it, Jackie -- we're proud of you

AMELIA 'MELY' (TRAVOSTINO) PARMALEE

The Palisades Village shopping center in the Los Angeles coastal neighborhood of Pacific Palisades has a friendly, small-town feel. But a look behind the cash registers at the neighborhood shops reveals a cosmopolitan mix of business owners, including many who are immigrants from around the world. At Special Moments, you'll find Amelia "Mely" (Travostino) Parmalee. From the time she was 5, Mely told everyone she would never marry. Despite a lack of interest in a wedding of her own, she started a business in bridal design in Milan, Italy. Then, in 1973, Travostino met Tim Parmalee, an opera tenor from the Palisades studying music in Italy, and married him just nine months later. "To come to the United States for me was another world," she says, citing Americans' frequent moves and life changes as just one of many cultural differences. But Mely says that everything that has happened in her life is destiny, "written in the book," including her decision in 1985 to open Special Moments, a lingerie store at 873 Via de la Paz with an emphasis on personal service. Mely still maintains her family home in Lago Maggiore and usually travels back to Italy at least once a year. (Photo credit: Rich Schmitt / Palisadian-Post)

JESSE PARMLEY

Welcome to the first day of school in Walton, Ky.: The students sat in silence, looking terrified as social studies and homeroom teacher Jesse Parmley walked in. He said nothing as he blankly stared at the 26 fifth-graders; they stared back. Then he smiled ... and they smiled back. He raised his hand, and they followed suit. He saluted them. They returned the greeting. Then he rubbed his head and stomach at the same time. The kids, with confused looks, timidly did the same. His nonverbal exercise lasted a couple of minutes. It was the students' first test, and they all passed. "It's very important that you look at me and listen to me," said Jesse, in his fifth year in Walton-Verona Independent Schools in northern Kentucky. "You guys did very well. Good job." Pupil Zoe Luebbe said she was comforted in the first few minutes of first period when Jesse lived up to his reputation with his nonverbal welcome. "Everybody told me that he's the funniest of all the teachers and teaches you real crazy stuff," she said. "I'm excited to have him." (Photo credit: Patrick Reddy / The Cincinnati Enquirer)

BARBARA PARMLY

Third-grade teacher Barbara Parmly has been honored with the National PTA's Life Achievement Award. The nine-year teacher at Putnam Valley, N.Y., Elementary School.says every day in the classroom is a chance to learn something new. "The hardest part of teaching is staying one step ahead [of the students]," she said. "I have to be constantly learning in order to keep up." That includes browsing children's books to choose appropriate material for students' different reading abilities, and staying after school to run a mystery book club for interested readers. "She's amazing. That's the first word that comes to mind," said Valerie Fitzgerald, the local PTA co-president whose daughter had Barbara for her fourth-grade teacher five years ago. Barbara began teaching in western New York in 1971, and, after taking 18 years off to raise two children, returned to the classroom nine years ago. She also has served as PTA co-president and as a member of the local Board of Education. "I was an Army brat, and we were raised to believe that you have an obligation to share with your community," she said. "I don't think what I do is anything extraordinary." The award is the PTA's highest honor. (Photo credit: Stephen Blackman / The Journal News)

NANCY PARMELEE

The owners of two of the largest buildings at the former Middletown, N.Y., Psychiatric Center haven't done much with the property, but vandals and skateboarders are developing their own projects. "The general state of the ground is just disgusting. The buildings are falling apart," said neighbor Nancy Parmelee, left. "It's a dangerous place." She and her husband were walking the grounds, designed by Calvert Vaux of Central Park fame, when they heard skateboarders on a rooftop, unlocked doors and damage everywhere. The state hospital opened in 1874. In March 2006, New York state closed it, and the property was subdivided. Orange County services for youth, the aging, the homeless and people with mental illness occupy about half of the campus, and those buildings are maintained well; it's the privately owned pieces that are decaying. Inside Building 84, kids have sprayed graffiti on the walls and set up a skateboard park with ramps and a rail. Patches of the facade are crumbling from Building 31, once the property's centerpiece. Nancy said everything inside is smashed. Middletown Public Works Commissioner Jacob Tawil said he was sending code enforcers immediately. Mayor Marlinda Duncanson said the developers, The Other Group, recently submitted a subdivision plan for its two parcels, which will be sent to the planning committee for review. But until back taxes totaling $266,000 are paid, she said, The Other Group won't get any approvals. John Fitzpatrick of The Other Group didn't return a call to the Times Herald-Record for comment.

MICHAEL ELEAZER PARMLY

Cuba has demanded that the United States respond to its accusations that America's top diplomat in Havana carried cash to political opposition leaders on the island. The Communist government has released e-mails, letters, videos and audio tapes it says prove Michael Eleazer Parmly [Eleazer "Lea," Eleazer "Zar," Eleazer "Ellie," Eleazer, David W., Eleazer, Jehiel, Stephen, Stephen, John, John] carried funds to activist Martha Beatriz Roque, who allegedly passed them on to other dissidents. "We have a right to know all about this dark drama," said Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque, who is not related to the dissident. "We implore the government of the United States to stop creating pretexts to remain silent." The State Department has denied wrongdoing, saying it has long provided humanitarian aid to opposition leaders in Cuba. The United States will not respond to the charges until Cuba files a formal complaint, according to a statement from the U.S. Interests Section in Havana. Michael and Roque have declined to comment on the specific accusations. Cuban agents have filmed Martha Beatriz Roque for months, bugging her home and cellular phones, hacking into her private e-mail accounts and going through her trash to support Cuban claims that Michael picked up mail for her on at least three trips to the United States. Cuban officials say the mail contained cash, but they have not provided any direct evidence of that. Michael, a career member of the Senior Foreign Service with the rank of minister-counselor, is currently serving as chief of mission-designate for the U.S. Interests Section in Havana. He recently received the American Citizens Abroad's Thomas Jefferson Award.

... and from Rockville, Md.: George Parmley Cressman, the former National Weather Service director who applied computers to meteorology and helped change weather forecasting from cloud-gazing guesswork to a codified science, died April 17 at the National Lutheran Home in Rockville. He had Alzheimer's disease and was 88. George was the son of Martha (Parmley) Cressman [John Lowthain, William, Joseph, Joseph, Henry, John Edmond, John, --?--, Henry]. In the 1950s, George developed the first program that could produce accurate and reliable forecasts prepared by computer, which led to a monumental change in how weather is predicted and brought meteorology into the computer age. As director of the Weather Service from 1965 to 1979, he expanded the number of local weather radars, developed a nationwide weather radio network and introduced systems to provide early warnings of tornadoes and flash floods. George was born Oct. 7, 1919, in West Chester, Pa. He and a boyhood friend, who also became a meteorologist, took an early interest in weather to determine when snowstorms would provide good opportunities for sledding. After graduating from Pennsylvania State University, he studied meteorology in a military course at New York University, then served as a forecaster with the Army Air Forces. In January 1943, he began teaching meteorology to military students at the University of Chicago, where he became a protege of Carl-Gustaf Rossby, a renowned meteorologist who identified the jet stream. George manned such outposts of the U.S. Weather Bureau as Lewistown, Mont., Homestead, Fla., and Mount Home, Idaho, before receiving his doctorate from the University of Chicago in 1949. He then worked at the Air Force's central weather command at Andrews Air Force Base, seeking ways to improve the scientific validity of weather predictions. In the early 1950s, he compiled forecasts for atomic bomb tests in the Nevada desert. As director of the Weather Service, Dr. Cressman added 100 weather radars to the national network in the 1970s and established dozens of Weather Service branches to provide accurate local forecasts across the country. He stepped down in 1979 but continued to work as a consultant to weather services in China, Spain and Brazil for several years. George lived in District Heights, Md., before moving to Rockville, Md., in 1964. His first wife of 32 years, Nelia Hazard Cressman, died in 1974. Survivors include his wife of 32 years, Frances Cressman, of North Bethesda, Md.; four children from his first marriage, Ruth Boyd of Kealakekua, Hawaii, George I. Cressman of Manchester, Mo., Catherine Beck of Grove City, Pa., and Florence Gardner of Mooresville, N.C.; a brother; nine grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren.

ALLAN PARMELEE

Arsonist Allan Wesley Parmelee [Warren Earl, Earl William, William Henry, Elbert William, William, Phineas, Phineas, Isaac, Isaac, John, John], who is serving 24 years in Washington state prison for having the cars of two lawyers firebombed, might be creeping out prosecutors by seeking information about them under the Public Records Act, but a Seattle judge has ruled that he is entitled to keep asking. King County Superior Court Judge Glenna Hall said she had no authority to bar Allan from making public-disclosure requests. Since his incarceration, he has filed hundreds of such requests, seeking records on prosecutors, prison guards, state troopers, judges and others who put him behind bars. Prosecutor Dan Satterberg took the extraordinary step of asking the judge not only to let his office ignore Parmelee's pending requests, but to bar him from filing more unless he first obtained court permission -- an option the Public Records Act does not contemplate. Allan has sought to harass his staff, Satterberg wrote, and giving him what he wanted could be dangerous. "The requester has been characterized as not only annoying or vocal, but violent," Hall wrote in her opinion. "Even so, the law requires the court to presume that access to the public records he seeks is in the public interest, and not make him show his purpose." The judge said some of Allan's requests must be granted -- such as photographs of King County employees, including judges; lists of names, job titles and pay scales; work e-mails and office phone numbers, which are all public records. Other records he requested, such as personnel files, she ruled, are exempt. The prosecutor's office was considering whether to appeal. (Previous story) (Feature story) (His obituary)

JAY PARMLEY

Democratic National Committee member Jay Parmley will be one of Oklahoma's superdelegates at the party's fall convention in Denver. Jay, the former chairman of the state's Democratic Party, said he has been getting numerous calls about his vote but that, as an employee of the party, he is obligated to stay uncommitted in the tight race for the nomination. "I guess if it's still undecided at the convention, I'll be free to make a decision one way or the other," he said. Jay said he would consider the fact that Oklahoma Democrats overwhelmingly voted for Clinton — she got 55% percent of the vote on Super Tuesday to Obama's 31% — but also what would be best for the party. "I'm going to weigh how Oklahoma voted, plus who would be our strongest candidate going into November," he said. Jay noted that the Democratic race was close because the pledged delegates are apportioned based on the vote in each state, as opposed to the Republicans who, in some states, award delegates on a winner-take-all basis.

... and from Seattle: Arsonist Allan Wesley Parmelee [Warren Earl, Earl William, William Henry, Elbert William, William, Phineas, Phineas, Isaac, Isaac, John, John], 48, is using his remaining 19 years in a Washington state prison to dig up information on the judges, lawyers and corrections officers who helped put him there. But his hundreds of requests under the state's Public Records Act have become so numerous that a prosecutor has asked a judge not only to let his office ignore Allan's pending requests, but to bar him from filing any more. Superior Court Judge Glenna Hall heard arguments in February in the case, which tests the limits of the disclosure law. The judge has given Allan two weeks to submit additional written arguments and said she would rule after that. King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg wrote that Allan "has a long history of using the Public Records Act to try and intimidate and harass my deputies and other criminal justice system employees." In 2004, Allan was convicted at his second trial of first-degree arson in the firebombing of a vehicle belonging to his ex-wife's divorce lawyer and another belonging to a lawyer who represented his roommate's ex-girlfriend. His first trial ended in a mistrial because he was found to have personal information about the jurors.While in prison, he has sought records -- including addresses, photos, pay, schedules, professional histories and birth dates -- of thousands of Washington State Patrol troopers and state Department of Corrections staff, Satterberg wrote in court papers. Several requests since October seek information about everyone in Satterberg's office, including photos and personnel records of three deputy prosecutors who handled his cases. Allan is also seeking video or other electronic images of two Superior Court judges -- including the one who sentenced him to 24 years -- and two court commissioners. He has asked the state attorney general's office for records including working hours, schedules and photographs of eight current and former assistant attorneys general. In a phone conversation, Allan told one, Brian Maxey, he might send an associate to his house; another, Sara Olson, received a letter from Allan that referenced the firebombings and said she was acting "so unprofessionally [as] to invite some similar response." The state has won previous orders against disclosing specific information to Allan, but for an agency to seek to bar someone from exercising his rights under the Public Records Act is unprecedented. In one case, Allan won more than $19,000 in fees from the Department of Corrections because it delayed providing him with certain records, said Michael Kahrs, a lawyer who once represented him. Allan has not seen the money because the state has taken steps to have it directed toward his criminal fines. (Feature story) (His obituary)

ANDREW PARMLEY

Cpl. Andrew Parmley, 22, an Army combat medic with the 3rd Infantry Division who was wounded Dec. 29 by Iraqi insurgent gunfire, returned home to Summit County, Colo., to a hero's welcome. Several fire trucks and their crews, friends, neighbors and family were awaiting Andrew's arrival at the Parmley home. As the family car, driven from the airport by his mother, Kathy, pulled into sight about 1:30 p.m., those assembled broke into "God Bless America" and a quiet applause rippled through the crowd. His father, Dave, chief of the Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue Authority, thanked those who had gathered. When Andrew returns to duty after his hospital rehab, he has been asked to continue caring for the other hospitalized men and women of the military and their families, Dave said. Andrew then thanked everyone for their kindness and support, but said the real heroes were still over there in Iraq. Andrew said they understood their mission and deserved all the support they can receive from their country. Andrew, a former student of Summit High School in Frisco, Colo., was wounded while on a morning mission southwest of Baghdad. He sustained injuries to the upper part of his left arm when his scout platoon fell under attack. He remained conscious despite a substantial loss of blood, his father said, and was able to talk through the application of a tourniquet to his arm while other members of his platoon suppressed the enemy fire. Andrew was presented with a Purple Heart in Iraq the same day by Lt. Col. Ken Adgie, 1-30 battalion commander before being flown to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany that evening. After an initial foray with the Air Force, Andrew joined the Army in 2006, receiving training at Fts. Sam Houston in Texas and Stewart near Savannah, Ga. He had been serving in Iraq since June and expected to stay in the Middle East until at least August. Update on Andrew's return.

JIM PARMELEE

This trip to Hawaii is proving much more taxing than his last. Jim Parmelee, 76, of Marshfield joined about 20 YMCA staff and members on a virtual trip to Hawaii back in mid-August. With 4,212 miles separating Marshfield and Hawaii, the challenge is who will be the first to log the miles at the YMCA through a variety of exercise. At last count, Jim was about 2,000 miles ahead of the group. Miles logged on an Airdyne exercise bike put him out over the Pacific, about half way there; the rest of the group hovered in a pack near the edge of Minnesota. "They'd have more miles too if they used any of these bikes," he said. "But I'm the only one using a bike. You get a lot more miles in one hour than you do on a treadmill." "He's enjoying himself and is very fit," said Marcia Lindow, fitness and member involvement director. "His health numbers are all wonderful." Besides the exercise, Jim said he enjoys a challenge. He arrives at the YMCA about 6 a.m., leaves to help deliver lunch for Meals on Wheels and then is back for another four hours of bike riding. About 10 years ago, Jim and his wife, Shirley, traveled to Hawaii for a vacation. "We used to travel a lot. We've been to 26 countries. But we're older now. We visit our daughter in Arizona." When Jim and the rest of the virtual tour participant land in Hawaii, Lindow will have a recliner, dolphin video and a mango drink ready. "When I'm sitting there, I'll look back and see that the first trip was easier and quicker," Parmelee said. (Photo credit: Laura Schmitt / Marshfield News-Herald)
