FEELING BUSHED? ENJOY THESE PRESIDENTIAL NAMES By Eric A. Iron

Each U.S. president’s name has been adopted for a variety of uses. In 1800, our nation’s new capital was named after the first president, George Washington. In 2008, a particular species of round fungus beetle was named for our newest ex-president, George W. Bush. Okay, so not all of the uses are flattering… • Fort Adams, named in honor of our second president, John Adams, sits along the coast in Newport, Rhode Island. Crowds gather at the location each year to attend the celebrated Newport Jazz Festival. • One of Cincinnati’s most posh areas is Mt. Adams, named for John Quincy Adams. In the mid-1800s, the hill became the home of the world’s most powerful telescopes. • Blues music legend Chester Arthur Burnett was named for President Chester Alan Arthur. As a performer, Burnett adopted a more colorful name: Howlin’ Wolf. • Do you recall which group of TV students attended James Buchanan High? Was it the hoopsters from The White Shadow, the teenagers in Happy Days, or the Sweathogs from Welcome Back, Kotter? Find the answer at the very end of this article. • The northeastern suburbs of Atlanta have become a huge shopping destination. One of the heaviest-traveled thoroughfares in the area is Jimmy Carter Boulevard, named after the former president from Georgia. • Renowned baseball pitcher Pete Alexander Christine Mueller was named after our 22nd and 24th presidents. What? You don’t remember a President named Pete or who picked up her copy of Tidbits at West Devil’s Alexander? Well, Pete was Alexander’s nickname; his Lake RV Park. She was quick to correctly identify that moniker at birth was Grover Cleveland Alexander. the bouncing ball was in Sterling Home Mortgage’s ad. Christine won a weekly prize of a Cerificate for turn the page for more Tidbits! Blind Cleaning $14.00 value donated by Custom Craft Interiors of Lincoln City. WANT TO RUN YOUR OWN BUSINESS?

Can You find the Bouncing Ball that looks like this?

PRESIDENTIAL NAMES (continued): • The northeastern suburbs of Atlanta have become a huge shopping destination. One of the heaviest-traveled thoroughfares in the area is Jimmy Carter Boulevard, named after the former president from Georgia. • Renowned baseball pitcher Pete Alexander was named after our 22nd and 24th presidents. What? You don’t remember a President named Pete or Alexander? Well, Pete was Alexander’s nickname; his moniker at birth was Grover Cleveland Alexander. • Coolidge Dam, built in the 1920s and named for Calvin Coolidge, gathers eastern Arizona’s Gila River into San Carlos Lake. • Dwight Eisenhower is the only president to date with a four-syllable last name. You’ve driven (or ridden) on roadways named for him, as his name is firmly attached to the Eisenhower Interstate Highway System. • During the run of TV’s The Brady Bunch, the older and middle kids attended Fillmore Junior High, named for mid-19th-century president Millard Fillmore. • Each year, the NCAA presents the Gerald R. Ford Award to a person who has dedicated his or her life to college athletics. • In a round-about fashion, Garfield the cat was named for 20th president James Garfield. Creator Jim Davis took the name from his grandfather, James Garfield Davis, who was named for the former president. • Grant’s Tomb is named for Ulysses S. Grant. And to answer the age-old question, no one is actually “buried in Grant’s Tomb.” (It’s an above-ground mausoleum.) • One of the largest and oldest trees in the world is a Giant Sequoia named ‘President.’ It’s located in California’s Sequoia National Park and was named for Warren Harding. • Named after our 23rd president, the SS Benjamin Harrison served only one year before a torpedo took her out of commission during World War II. • To thank Rutherford B. Hayes for his help in their border dispute with Argentina, Paraguay named one of its “departments” (the equivalent of a “state”) Presidente Hayes. Its capital? Villa Hayes, of course. • “Hoovervilles” sprang up all across America during the Great Depression. This was the name the press gave to to the shantytowns where some were forced to live in the 1930s, when Herbert Hoover was president. • On a few episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, Sheriff Taylor’s full name is revealed to be Andrew Jackson Taylor. President Andrew Jackson was born in 1767 on the border between North and South Carolina. • In years past, Texas’ wealthy often headed elsewhere to retire. Today, many of them opt to find a cozy spot along Lake LBJ, a central Texas spot famous for its great boating. (Lyndon Johnson did own property on the lake, and visited it regularly during his term.) • When John F. Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, tributes rose all across the country. In New York, Idlewild Airport became JFK Airport. (continued)

If they can't see a wound and can't stitch it up, apparently it isn't a "real" injury. That's what a Pentagon awards advisory group concluded when it decided against awarding the Purple Heart to military personnel with post-traumatic stress disorder. It's hard to diagnose injuries that can't be seen, and PTSD and psychological problems are some of the most confounding injuries to diagnose and treat. There are arguments on both sides of the issue here. On the one hand, PTSD is a real condition brought about in soldiers who experience a traumatic event in war. It can be disabling, just as much as a physical injury. Many physical injuries can be healed, maybe with multiple surgeries or maybe with prosthesis in the event a limb is lost, but some semblance of normality can be regained with many physical injuries. Not necessarily so with PTSD. The effects can linger forever, and while there are some treatments that seem to help, for the most part the sufferer doesn't get much relief. Soldiers with PTSD know full well the stigma of suffering from an injury that can't be seen. With the award of a Purple Heart, they feel that their injury will be acknowledged. On the other side, the Purple Heart has historically been given only for wounds received in battle "as a direct result of enemy action" that is intended to maim or kill. The Military Order of the Purple is very much against awarding for a non-visible injury like PTSD. Its director of public relations has been quoted as saying, "Shedding blood is the objective." As long as that is the prevailing sentiment, it's not likely that PTSD and other psychological problems will get the recognition that comes with a Purple Heart.
