Thank you for your faith and confidence in me. It is a great honor and privilege to be your High Priest and Prophet. Your Potentate and Elected Divan will be working hard this year putting on Gun Shows, Parades, and making small changes in how we do things that will bene- fit and help our temple and the nobility. In my club visits, I have been asking the club’s offi- cers to remember that before they can hold a road block or pa- per drive, they must have ap- proval from the Potentate. This protects the club and it will bring them under the protection

Of our insurance. Also, there are only two types of road blocks, One is for the Circus and the other is for our Hos- pitals. Clubs cannot do a road block to benefit their club.

Contact our recorder and he will get the right information to you. It is always a pleas- ure to visit the Clubs and seeing everyone wearing their FEZ, although, I have visited a club where this is not practiced. The FEZ should be worn by all nobles of the Mystic Shrine at all meetings.

Hi Nobles!

Hope everyone is doing well.

I had a great time at the In-

stallation of Officers and made it through my first Stated. I do want to tell you

I was nervous because of the

job of the Oriental Guides that have went before me. My Lady Sandy is doing much better each day in re- covering from knee replace- ment and is ready to start visiting the clubs and units

with me.

Nobles, please make sure your club or unit is submit- ting articles for the oleikan. Noble Roger is working hard to improve the paper. Your articles will help get the word out about your activi-

ties and fundraisers. The more participation the bet- ter our publication will be.

Lady Sandy and I are also in the preliminary stages of procuring a Kentucky Shrine License Plate. Once we get all the particulars, we will be sharing the infor- mation.

I look forward to the Hot sands on March 6, and to attending Oriental Guide School in Tampa

Yours in faith

Museum plans in the works

It’s on the drawing board and progress is being made. Oleika will soon have a room in the Temple dedi- cated to housing and dis- playing bits and pieces from our rich Oleika history.

A curator will soon be

named to oversee this pro- ject.

The nobility will be asked to submit items to the museum that are deemed of historical value. It’s understandable that all items submitted will not be displayed due to lim-

ited space availability.

Illustrious Sir, Chuck Ken- drick has signed off on the idea and a room has been assigned.

We’ll keep you posted

Potentates Trip this year to be a real blast! May 24th through May 30

Ill Sir Chuck has a real treat in store for nobility this year in a Potentates trip.

This years trip will be a bus tour of Charleston, Savan- nah Jekyll Island and Pi- geon Forge. Included in the price of the trip will be Transportation, lodging, Step-on Guides, Breakfast each morning, Trolley tour, Ft Sumter Boat ride taxes and luggage Tips.

Day 1-2, This Morning we board our modern motor coach at the pick up point in Kentucky and get to know or reacquainted with the other travelers as the jour- ney leads through Asheville and on towards South Caro- lina. Charleston is our des- tination for two nights and it is considered a show place of the southeast. The homes, historic shrines, old churches, lovely gardens, winding streets and intri- cate iron lace gateways that all lend to her charm and dignity. The stories of how Charleston has survived wars, Hurricanes, and epi- demics make for a very in- teresting city tour with our step-on guide. The after- noon of the second day will be highlighted with a boat ride to Fort Sumter. Of

course it would not be com- plete without adequate time at the Old Market Place in downtown Charleston.

Day 3-5 We head down the coast to a wonderful city

called Savannah, America’s first planned city. On arri- val, we once again pick up a professional guide to show us the sights of this very charming his-

toric city. It was estab- lished in 1773 and later be- came Geor- gia’s first

Capital city. You’ll certainly enjoy the legends and history of this fine southern city from our tour. There will be plenty of time to enjoy the shops and restaurants down on the river walk in Savannah on the 4th day. A pretty nice time don’t you think? On the 5th day we travel south

along the coast of Georgia to an area called the Golden Isles with it’s vast marsh- lands, pretty rivers and rug- ged beaches. After arriving, we are treated to a trolley tour of the Jekyll Island Historic Landmark District, one of the nations largest restoration projects. The Rockefellers, Vanderbilt's and J.P. Morgan built

“grand Cottages” along the 240-acre river edge and they are really something to see. After lunch in the area, we tour St. Simons Island and enjoy the grounds and ceme- tery of the beautiful and his- toric Christ Church. Before leaving the area, we will

stop at the old lighthouse for photographs and shopping. We return to Savannah for lodging which means we have

“there will be of time to enjoy the shops on the river walk “

not had to fool with suitcases for a few days.

Day 6 Depending

on the time you wish to have in Pigeon

Forge, There are at least two or three routes we can take from Savanna. Regard- less, it will be a nice ride to

a town that was primarily a

farming community until 1940, when adjacent Great Smoky Mountains National Park, whose headquarters is

10 minutes away, was dedi- cated. Today, Dolly Parton has turned the area into a circus atmosphere which means there’s many things to do.

Day 7 we return to Ken-

tucky with a few photos be- cause this is a real memory maker. Please come and be

a part of the fun with us.

From the Recorders Desk

Nobles,

It is good to be back in the office again. Thanks for your confidence in selecting me for this honor. Health wise, I’m doing very well. It has been difficult getting up to speed where things are located here in the of- fice, but, that too is coming along.

Petitions for the Ceremo- nial should be submitted no later than the March stated Meeting. This will save us having long lines on cere- monial day in the recorders office.

The Potentate and I will be

Attending the S.A.S.A. Mid- Winter Planning session in Sa- vannah in March. In April, we’re planning to host a Gun Show. This should be an excel- lent Fund Raiser for the Tem- ple and Nobles. Please plan to attend this important event.

IMPORTANT!! THERE WILL BE TWO STATED MEETINGS IN APRIL!

The dates are: April 1 and FRIDAY, April 30. The Nobles that have to travel a good dis- tance may like coming in on Friday. You will NOT have to travel back home and get ready for work the next day as you do when the meetings are

On Thursday. Doing this will avoid a conflict with the Fun Fest in Pigeon Forge the next week.

The calendar books are being brought to your club/unit meet- ings when the snow quits flying. I’m looking forward to a successful year for all of us and I’m dedicat- ing myself to that end. I remain,

Yours In Faith

Shriners Hospitals for Children – Galveston ended 2009 with a grand reopening celebration, and looks forward to 2010 with several exciting events, including co-hosing the Phoenix Society World Burn Congress in October.

On Dec. 13, 2009, Hospital Board of Governors Chairman Jim Denson, along with Administrator John Swartwout and Chief of Staff David Herndon, M.D., welcomed Shriners Hospitals for Children CEO Douglas Maxwell and other dignitaries at the hospital's reopening celebration and parade.

Shriners from across the state, including El Mina Shriners of Galveston, Arabia Shriners of Houston, Hella Shriners of Dallas, Alzafar Shriners of San Antonio, Sharon Shriners of Tyler and many oth- ers, came out with bands, clowns, motor corps and other participants to parade along Seawall Boulevard to the hospital.

WHY THE NAZIS FEARED FREEMASONS

(continued from Jan-Feb edition of the Oleikan)

Hitler was more afraid of the basic tenets of freemasonry, which decree that personal political freedom and human dignity are the rightful foundations of all human society. The Nazis perceived Masons as a threat because the group defined human freedom in terms that supersedes feelings of nationalism or racial allegiance. Many Freema- sons were known as leading figures of the Enlightenment. Men such as George Washington, Benjamin

Franklin, and Simon Bolivar led such revolutions against aristo- cratic power. It was natural, then, for a totalitarian regime such as Nazi Germany to want to seek out and destroy the organization. As U.S. Supreme Court justice Robert H. Jackson, the chief prosecutor at the Nuremburg war crimes trial

persecutions un-

observed,”

dertaken by every modern dictator- ship are those directed against Free Masons {sic}.”

many

Justice Jackson understood, as did

Hitler, that members of such an organization were not likely to coop- erate with the oppressive police states necessary for the survival of a dictatorship. As such, Freema- sons were regularly put to death by the SS.

Tri Co Shrine Club

The Tri Co Shrine Club Do- nation Drive has been Very Successful this Year. We Raised $23,333 for the Oleika Temple Transporta- tion Fund and Hospitals. We put in many hours to do this, but it is the generosity of the community that makes it all possible. We sold Onions in the spring, had a collection at Wal- Mart, Mitsubishi sponsored a car show and donated the proceeds. Pig Out on Mar- ket Street committee do- nated the proceeds from that event, sold cheese in October, and again at Flem- ingsburg Frontier Day, Can- vasses area businesses and individuals for donations and received great support.

This by far was the largest total we have ever collected. I thank all the Shriners for their hard work and partici- pants for their generous do- nations.

All of this is necessary for the kids to have transporta- tion to our hospitals. We are very fortunate to have two area hospitals. We have the Shriners orthopedic Hospital in Lexington and the Shriners Burn Hospital in Cincinnati. We have a van in the area for our use and we cover a 10 county area with 10 volunteer Shriners from our club and they drive in teams of two. This Service is also at no cost to the child and family.

Children under 18 with or- thopedic problem or Burn

injuries receive medical care at no cost to the family at Shriners Hospitals. Types of conditions treated are sco- liosis and spinal deformities, club foot and related de- formities, osteogenesis im- perfect a, spina bifida/ myeodysplaysia, neuromus- cular disorders, hand prob- lems, hip disorders, orthope- dic problems resulting from cerebral palsy, missing limbs/limb deformities leg length discrepancies, meta- bolic bone disease, skeletal growth abnormalities, spi- nal cord injuries and burn injuries. If you know of a child that needs our help, please call one of the officers or any Shriner. You can also call 1-800-237-5055, Monday—Friday 8am—5pm

What is a Vidalia Onion?

A Vidalia onion is a sweet onion of certain varieties, grown in a production area defined by law in Georgia and by the United States code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The varieties include the Hybrid yellow, granex, varieties of granex parentage, or other similar varieties recommended by the Vidalia Onion Committee and approved by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.

The onions were first grown near Vidalia, Georgia, in the early 1930s. It is an unusually sweet variety of onion, due to the low amount of sulfur in the soil in which the onions are grown. Mose Coleman is considered the person that discovered the sweet Vidalia Onion variety in 1931.

Georgia's state legislature passed the "Vidalia Onion Act of 1986" which authorized a trademark for "Vidalia On- ions" and limits the production area to Georgia or any subset as defined by the state's Commissioner of Agriculture.

Burned boy leaves Hospital

CINCINNATI -- "We lost every- thing, but all that can be re- placed," said Angela Cooper as she sat next to her 4-year-old son in the acute care unit of Shriners Hospital for Children Cincinnati Monday. "He can never be re- placed."

Landon Cooper, 4, sat quietly next to his mother at the small table, eating chocolate chip cookies and drinking punch. He had just fin- ished opening up the presents given him during his "discharge party."

Landon goes home today, but his recovery is far from complete. The second- and third-degree burns he suffered from a house fire in De- cember covered 50 percent of his body.

He has undergone skin grafts, had his pinky fingers amputated and has undergone therapy to strengthen his mobility skills. He can walk now, can pick up things using the palms of his hands -- he will have another surgery for the skin grafts on his fingers -- and he can talk. He agreed he is excited to see his siblings, who he hasn't seen since the day of the fire be- cause of H1N1 concerns, and nod- ded when asked if he plans to share his presents with them.

The Coopers' home on Kentucky 11 burned in December. The fire started near the location of the Christmas tree, though the lights on the tree have not officially been ruled the cause of the fire.

Angela and Aaron Cooper were asleep in the bedroom while Landon slept on the living room

couch. The three other children were not present when the fire started.

Angela Cooper said the smoke detector did not go off.

"I just happened to wake up to all the cracking and popping," she said.

Angela Cooper woke her husband and together they escaped from the residence through the back door. They could not get through the flames in the hallway to the living room.

As Angela Cooper ran to a neighbor's house to call 911, Aaron Cooper ran to the front door and kicked it open. Aaron Cooper said when the air hit the fire, the flames shot up even big- ger.

Despite the danger to himself, Aaron Cooper entered the resi- dence.

"I couldn't see anything," Aaron Cooper said, describing the heavy smoke in the house. Fortunately, he knew the layout of the house and where his son had been lying.

"I felt him on the back, picked him up," Aaron Cooper said, then somehow managed to find his way to the door.

Aaron Cooper suffered minor burns, but Landon's injuries were extensive.

Angela Cooper said her son does not remember the fire, though he knows his injuries were caused by a fire. "He was in shock," she said.

The parents just informed Landon of the incident a few days ago. All Landon knew before was that he had been hurt and needed to get

better.

As he recuperated, Landon's par- ents were there for him, providing him whatever comfort they could and encouraging him in his ther- apy and treatment.

Angela and Aaron Cooper also had to learn how to care for their son, including the hour-long proc- ess of bathing him and the twice- daily 30 minutes of therapy.

"They taught me to be independ- ent with him," Angela Cooper said. "He's doing really good. Shriners is the best hospital for burn victims."

Landon has left Shriners Hospi- tals for Children just once since he arrived and that was to visit a nearby aquarium as his pre- discharge outing. He said his fa- vorite animals were the sharks and penguins. He also got to have a parrot sit on his arm.

Angela Cooper said she has prom- ised to take him to Chuck E. Cheese's once he leaves Shriners Hospitals for Children.

The family will stay in a motel in Aberdeen, Ohio, for about a month as they wait as their new home, a mobile home provided by their landlords, John and Jill Kelly, is prepared. Angela Cooper said staying at Brown's Motel in Aberdeen keeps the family close together, as her three other chil- dren are staying with her sister in apartments nearby. Her mother also lives minutes away.

"Angela and Aaron Cooper agree what their son and family experi- enced is a nightmare they would wish on no one. "Makes you smile," said Aaron Cooper.

We will ac- cept any size donation, and with a donation of $100.00 or more you will receive a nice plaque displaying your support of our kids! I know times are hard, but I hope you will continue to help us out with your donations. We need your help to continue to give medical care and transportation to the children. We also save aluminum cans. If you would like to help out with this project, save your cans and call one of the Shriners and we will pick them up.

So be sure and make a date with your lady and come have some fun with us!
