flGrice Clearfiffiifi eld Community museum Story & Photoz: Blue Star Bud

Grice Clearfield Community Museum is located on 119 North 4th Street, in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, and is a non-profit organization. Blue Star Bud recently visited the museum and came back with photos of their collection. They have two of our favorite and mounts! They have over seventy antique and classic cars from the early 1900’s to today’s specialty cars owned by the Grice’s and other area residents. Hundreds of trophy game animals and fish harvested by many hunters around the world adorn the floor and walls of the museum. The Grice Business History started with Scoot’s Uncle Tom Grice’s small gas station on North 3rd Street in 1945. Scoot regards his Uncle Tom as the greatest man that ever lived. Tom opened the gas station in 1945 and closed it in 1954 due to a heart attack. In 1955 Scoot, a veteran of the Korean Conflict, and his wife Janet re-opened the station. Scoot ran the station during the day and worked nightshift at a brickyard. In 1962 Scoot and Janet expanded the station to accompany the growing side business of gun sales. This led to some custom rifle building which further established the gun business. In 1962 the pumps were removed and the entire building was turned into Grice Gun Shop. 1970 brought an expansion of the gun shop to a second floor and extended the shop out to the sidewalk. It evolved into one of the largest gun shops in Pennsylvania. In 1985 a new building was built at 216 Reed St. which doubled the size of Grice Gun Shop and housed a new business, Grice Wholesale, which services other firearms dealers in all 50 states. In 1988 Scoot and Janet turned most of the management operation over to their only child, Tom and his wife Brenda Grice. In 1994 Scoot and Janet Grice Constructed and donated the Grice Clearfield Community Museum, a “Non Profit Organization” on 4th and Pine St. Only through hard work, long days, dedicated employees and loyal customers did Scoot and Janet achieve their dream, owning one of the largest gun shops in the United States. Located on 119 North 4th Street, in Clearfield, Pennsylvania. Address is: P.O. Box 1028, Clearfield, PA 16830 814-768-7332 or 814-768-7892

your Health Behind Barz

Dem bones, dem bones, dem dry bones….. hmmmmmm First to make you think about bones… What is the name of a bone in your body that you can never break? (Answer is at the end). Think about Halloween for a minute. Wherever you look, there are vampires, ghosts, or bony skeletons grinning back at you. Vampires and ghosts don’t really exist, but skeletons and bones sure do! Every single person has a skeleton made up of 206 bones. These bones give your body structure, let you move in many ways, protect your internal organs, and more. Almost every bone in your body is made of the same materials:

photos: Moe, Bud, Dee & Doobie

The outer surface of bone is called the periosteum. It’s a thin, dense membrane that contains nerves and blood vessels that nourish the bone. The next layer is made up of compact bone. This part is smooth and very hard. It’s the part you see when you look at a skeleton.


Within the compact bone are many layers of cancellous bone, which looks a bit like a sponge. Cancellous bone is not quite as hard as compact bone, but it is still very strong. In many bones, the cancellous bone protects the innermost part of the bone, the bone marrow. Bone marrow is sort of like a thick jelly, and its job is to make blood cells. Remember the question at the beginning…. What is the name of a bone in your body that you can never break…..your funny bone. Ride safe, be blessed and keep your funny bone between the ditches! Deborah Alston RN


Helen & Bobby Driver Benefit In a lifetime you get to meet many people. Most often they enter your life and leave without much thought. Often times their impact on you is minimal at best. Then there are times when someone enters your life and become a special part of it. All who have visited Tippetts Mill in Zebulon NC. have had such a priveledge. One cannot come to hang out at the mill without meeting Bobby Driver. Bobby is a man full of life who loves to meet all types of people. He enjoys talking to people and really getting to know them. He has entertained us over the years with his harmonica and dancing. Bobby is an avid hunter and fisherman that shares his catch allowing for many stews and fish frys. He enjoys seeing people eat his catch. Bobby is a man who loves sharing stories and always sees the best in people. He will never be one to speak negative of anybody. He truely sees the good in all people. His gentle nature and giving soul make all who get the honor of meeting and talking to him truely respect him. He is a proud man who never asks for help. Whether it be help at his house, or pulling his boat out of the pond he does it all himself.

story: Melissa photos: Doobie


Recently his wife Helen, a wonderful gentle woman, had heart trouble and was in the hospital for an extended period of time. Thankfully she pulled through and is back taking care of Bobby. We at Tippetts knew we had to do something to help with the mounting medical bills. On July 13th we had a benefit for them. Although there was rain, friends and family came together to help out our dear friends. There were chicken plates, a 50/50 raffle, door prizes, and music by DogHouse Retreat. A special thanks to them for donating their time for Bobby. The band was absolutely amazing and entertained us well into the night with a special performance by Bobby himself. Thank you to all of the Tippetts Mill people who volunteered that day. Owners Bill and Melissa, Cowboy and Superman for parking. Paul for handling the store. All the kids for helping with the raffle. Bobbys family, especially Bobby Jr. for helping Bill cook. The day, although a wet one, allowed Bobby and Helen to see all the people that have come to know and love them. The love they have for each other was obvoius to all. It was a pleasure to be able to help them out. When one thinks of Tippetts Mill Bobby Driver is a large part of it. He is a man of pride and integrity who lives a simple life doing what he enjoys and shares it with everyone. His heart is big enough to allow all he meets in. He always gives so much of himself that it was an honor to be able to help he and his wife. To Bobby and Helen Driver: We at Tippetts are honored to call you our friends, and have you as apart of our family. You touch our lives in such a special way. It was our priveledge to be able to give back to someone who gives so much. We love you both!!!!!

Blue Knights LEMC nc xiii As you may know nationwide last year, in 2013 Police Officer’s lost their lives in the line of duty. While this is a decrease over the number of Officer’s killed in 2011, it is hard to make that number seem better to the families who have lost their loved ones. The average age of these Officers was 40 years old. Sixty-eight (68) of these men and women were killed in some sort of direct and life ending contact with criminals. The Families these Police Officers left behind are faced with unimaginable and overwhelming challenges. Unfortunately, six of the officers killed where here from North Carolina. One of the primary missions of the Blue Knights® International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club (LEMC)is to help support the surviving family members of these fallen Police Officer’s and that is why we have partnered with North Carolina Concerns of Police Survivors (NC C.O.P.S.) to help raise funds to support those left behind.

photos: Dee James

The national group—Concerns of Police Survivors, Inc. (C.O.P.S. or COPS)— provides resources to assist in the rebuilding of the lives of surviving families and affected co-workers of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty as determined by federal criteria. COPS was organized in 1984 with 110 individual members. Today COPS membership is over 15,000 families. Members include spouses, children, parents, siblings, significant others, and affected co-workers of officers killed in the line of duty according to Federal government criteria. COPS is governed by a National Board of law enforcement survivors. All programs and services are administered by the National Office in Camdenton, Missouri. Chapters function in several states at the grass-roots level. COPS also provides training to law enforcement agencies on survivor victimization issues and educates the public of the need to support the law enforcement profession and its survivors. Each year, between 140 and 160 officers are killed in the line of duty and their families and co-workers are left to cope with the tragic loss. COPS provides resources to help them rebuild their shattered lives. There is no membership fee to join COPS, for the price paid is already too high. On the 22nd of June 2013 we held a fund raiser here in Fayetteville, North Carolina involving the entire law enforcement community and many of the Fayetteville community. A memorial service was held at the Cumberland County Law Enforcement Center after which a motorcycle ride will took place ending with a lunch. Resulting from the donations and proceeds from this event we were able to present a $1,000.00 to NC C.O.P.S., www., due to the support of the wonderful riders and supporters in the community. On a terrible day for a motorcycle ride with overcast conditions, and all around yuck… 118 amazing folks showed up and registered for the ride, and participated in the memorial wreath laying for these fallen officers and their families and 69 fantastic hard core motorcyclists many of the bikes with two up, from the area road with us from the Cumberland County Courthouse through rural Cumberland and Bladen counties, stopping at the midway point at Jones Lake State Park. After a little time to relax, we mounted up again for the ride back to the Retired Military Association for a lunch and raffles. Despite the less than ideal conditions, the great folks that participated made this an exceptional day, allowed us to help NC C.O.P.S. and will enable us to help others as necessary throughout the year. We are already looking forward to the 4th Annual Ride in June of 2014 and we hope you are too! On behalf of Blue Knights LEMC Chapter XIII here in Fayetteville and the over 800,000 policemen & woman in this country who are there for you every day, we thank all of you again for your support of our 2013 Homegrown Heroes and Fallen Officer Memorial Ride and North Carolina Concerns of Police Survivors. Thanks also to all our the other Blue Knights Chapters that rode from across the state to support the fund raising efforts! We are respectfully at your service Blue Knights® LEMC Chapter XIII, Fayetteville, NC! Michael J. "Mike" Brown Sr. Ride With Pride! President Blue Knights LEMC NC XIII


Vollis Simpson

For more photos, go to our Facebook page.

Vollis Simpson was a WW II

veteran, former house mover, mechanic and farmer. He started making his windmills about thirty years ago. He had a lot of leftover junk from his business and didn’t want to throw it away. So, he made the first whirligig and put it in his pasture in Lucama, N.C.. Many were over 50 feet high. He also would cut up highway road signs into 1” square pieces and fasten them to his art. They would reflect light, especially at night. People traveling down his road would have an interesting sight when their headlights reflected back off of the thousands of reflectors...thus, his property became known as, “Acid Park”, by many locals. Whenever we would happen by Simpson’s shop, he would be sitting in an old workshop chair situated so he could see what was going on down the road.

He said he had seen a lot of wrecks at the intersection in front of his shop. One particular time, there was a stray dog hanging around. He said for us to take her. He was afraid she would get runover there at his place. So, we did. We named her, “Whirligig”! In 2011, he told us that his knees were giving him a fit and he had to walk with a cane. Regardless of how he felt, he worked most every day. When people came by to visit, he would stop what he was doing, chat with them and let them see the scraps of metal that he turned into art. If they asked, he would even sell them a whirligig. He entertained and inspired people in our community and far beyond the backroads of rural N.C., on his Lucama farm.

He died Friday evening, May 31st, at his home. “He just went to sleep and didn’t wake up,” said his wife, Jean. In May of this year, the N.C. Legislature, inspired by Simpson’s art, moved toward naming whirligigs as the state’s official folk art. In 2011, he put on a tuxedo and went to Raleigh to accept the state’s biggest honor bestowed on a civilian: the North Carolina Award. In November, Wilson is set to open the Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park downtown. Designed by awardwinning landscape architecture firm Lappas+Havener, PA, the two-acre park will feature 30 of Vollis Simpson’s whirligigs—including some of the largest in his life’s work.

Camp Rainbow Charity Ride On June 8, 2013 the Snow Hill Moose Lodge, Moose Riders, sponsored the 3rd Annual Camp Rainbow Charity Ride in honor of Ryan Elks. This is a ride that raises money for children with cancer and chronic blood disorders to be able to go to camp for one week. This ride has quite a history as it began when Ryan, the son of Moose Riders President Mr. Ken Gaskins, was diagnosed with leukemia. Family and friends were devastated. Yet, Ryan is a survivor and he attended Camp Rainbow for one week in Arapahoe, North Carolina and loved it. The Camp Rainbow brings about 100 children a year to the camp. Here Doctors, Nurses and other medical personnel volunteer their time and skills to care for these children. All medical care, medicines, and therapy, is provided for these young children while they are at Camp Rainbow. The children are allowed to bring siblings with them to enjoy the time together. During this camp time counseling is also provided to help these young men and young ladies deal with cancer. Many Bikers M/C, R/C and M/M came and rode to support this wonderful cause. Yet one young lady, Miss Cassidy, 13 years old, went to her friends and family and alone raised $350 for Camp Rainbow. Camp Rainbow is close to her heart and she just wanted to help. The cost is about $750 a week for one child to attend camp. Here Miss Cassidy alone raised the money to pay about half the way for one child. Go Miss Cassidy!! Miss Cassidy was active in helping the Moose Lodge get things ready and set up. They had a 50/50 drawing, door prizes and food was served! Ms. Betty Sutton, Secretary of the Moose Riders said “If we can put happiness in their heart for one week, it is worth it.” The Moose Riders say “No man stands so tall as when he stoops to help a child”. If you would like to help a child attend Camp Rainbow please contact the President Ken Gaskins at 252.474.3787 or Secretary Betty Sutton at 252.341.5736. Ride safe and blessed for all you do Moose Riders, and a biker salute to Miss Cassidy for her unselfish love.

Been There, S

Serving Those W

By: Chewy (Biker Dog)

In the last issue of Behind Barz, Deborah Alston wrote an article about PTSD (“Your Health Behind Barz: PTSD,” Deborah Alston RN, Behind Barz Motorcycle Magazine, July-August 2013, page 13). For those who don’t know my driver and me very well, PTSD is what brought us together. In 2004, my driver’s psychologist suggested that he adopt a dog and bond with that dog. I was that dog. I was at a SPCA shelter and scheduled to be euthanized on my third day. I was about 14 dog-years old (about 2 in human years), abused and sick with heartworms. Early on the morning of my third day, the SPCA staff led me to the center of a fenced concrete run. There was a man standing in the center. The SPCA staff told the man that I was afraid of people. I leaned against the fence and trembled as the man talked to me. He dropped to one knee and I walked to him. When I reached him, he calmly talked to me. The SPCA staff was surprised and said that no one was able to do that. The man asked the staff member if he could talk with his wife and let them know tomorrow. The staff member told the man that they were overcrowded and I would be euthanized after he left. The man looked at me and told me he was sorry, but he wanted to talk it over with his wife. He stood up and when he walked towards the door, I stayed at his feet and almost tripped him a few times. He got on his knees and I leaned against him. He petted me and I gently licked his chin. He hugged me and I stopped trembling. He decided to adopt me! My driver has battled PTSD for decades with dissociation, flashbacks, nightmares and more. When my driver sought help, he was ashamed of having been diagnosed with severe PTSD and afraid of what people would think of him. He kept it to himself. A major part of his recovery was accepting the battle and learning ways to combat it. I became part of his therapy. Deborah is correct when she stated in her article “Asking for help for PTSD is not a sign of weakness but of strength…don’t be afraid to ask for help.” My driver rescued me from death.


A few of the Patriot Rovers. If you knew my driver in 2004, then you probably know that my mom and I were part of rescuing my driver after he nearly took his own life to end his battle through attrition. Even worse, he could have spent an eternity in hell. In those days, he drifted away from God and Jesus, but with the help of my mom, their oldest son (Matt “Possum”) and me, we got him back on track with the Lord and with life. When I started riding in 2008, my driver and I noticed that I get a lot of attention. We decided to use that attention for the Lord and give our time to a number of organizations. One of those organizations is Carolina Patriot Rovers ( The Patriot Rovers, founded by Dave “Fly Dog” Cantara, rescues dogs and trains them as service dogs for veterans battling PTSD. Combat veterans work with the Rovers in training and then receive the dog as their personal service animal.

Sniffed That

e Who Serve Us Families of Fallen Heroes (those who died while on active duty) can request a Rover be named after their loved one. I first met Dave on a Patriot Guard mission in 2009 or 2010. After founding Patriot Rovers, he referred to me as the “original Patriot Rover” and presented me with an honorary Patriot Rovers vest, which I wear on special occasions. Training Rovers to be service dogs takes time and money. There are a number of fund raising events that occur each year, and I was tail-waggin’ happy to participate in a 112-mile ride on July 13. At Crescent Ford in High Point, NC, there were lots of Rovers with their veterans. I met a few over the years, but I wanted to sniff as many as I could. My biker dog friend, Snoopy, brought this driver, Tim Wall, to ride in this event and meet some of the Rovers.

Snoopy checkin’ his six while his driver gives me a treat.

We rode from Crescent Ford to Harley-Davidson of Greensboro. It was cloudy and we ran into some sprinkles and light rain, but it was a pawesome route with lots of sweeps, rolling terrain, and a few small towns! I had my helmet cam rolling, but part way through the first leg, I dumped my helmet and goggles and decided to go lidless. (We four-legged dogs can get away with it in North Carolina!) We had about 102 bikes leave High Point and we were escorted the entire route by four mounted officers.

At Harley-Davidson of Greensboro, there was a concert and lots of food! Bobby Farrington bought my lunch and personally fed me. After sniffing more people, we mounted up for the ride home. About an hour from home, we rode through pouring rain. As long as we’re rolling, I tuck in behind my driver and I stay dry. When we hit the rain, my driver thought about pulling over to put on his rain gear, but since he was already soaked in a matter of seconds, he decided to keep rolling so that I would stay dry.

OB offered to share his egg sammich with me, but my driver didn’t want to deal with my gas. (Notice the shirt!) The following Saturday (July 20), I supported the USO of North Carolina at the Scoops for Troops in Cary, NC. On summer days, my driver and I prefer to minimize the time that I’m dismounted because of the heat. The USO provided me with a roof for shade and a fan, which helped me stay cool when I wore my swamp vest. I had about 50 copies of Behind Barz magazine, and they didn’t stay on the saddlebag for very long!

Ooops, I reckon I shouldn’t have dumped my helmet and goggles.

Been There, Sniffed That At last year’s Scoops for Troops, I met Saskia Leary, who took lots of pictures of me. Without our knowledge, she entered one of the photos in a contest and won People’s Choice. At this year’s event, she told us about it and showed us a note card with a photo of me. Those cards are sold at Whole Foods in Cary, NC. When she told us that the proceeds go to the USO, we were perfectly OK with her fund raising efforts. Saskia presented a check to the USO from the proceeds from the sale of the cards. Saskia then gave the USO the award winning photo and the ribbon, which I think will be displayed at the USO’s RDU Center. The story behind the story… The reason Saskia is very supportive of our military is she is Dutch and was in her home country of Holland during the occupation by Germany in World War II and the liberation by the US forces. She remains appreciative of those who serve in our armed forces, past and present. By meeting me and applying her love of photography, she found a way to serve those who serve us by supporting the USO!

Most of the time, when my driver and I refer to “Fallen Heroes,” we refer to those who lost their lives while serving our country. In June, we rode with lots of friends in support of another group of Fallen Heroes – law enforcement officers who gave their lives in the line of duty. My driver sometimes call these “Officer Down” memorial events. The ride was sponsored by Blue Knights. The reason we knew about it is because we read that Bill Brown was leading the event. Initially, my driver and I planned to go to Ft. Belvoir, VA to spend time with warriors at a barbecue, but the forecast was for a hot and humid day with showers between our home and Virginia. About 10 minutes after the leaving our house, we ran into rain, and my driver decided to change course to Fayetteville with the hopes that the rain would be scattered.

If you are interested in seeing more pictures, please visit my Facebook page.


Continued from page 31

When we arrived in Fayetteville, my driver was soaked, but there were about 50 bikes ready to roll. With law enforcement escort the entire route, we rode to Jones Lake State Park near Elizabethtown, then back to Fayetteville for BBQ where my driver and I shared fried chicken, pulled pork and “moosh balls” (that’s what my driver calls hush puppies).

Been There, Sniffed That We had scattered rain during the ride, but by the time the group returned to Fayetteville, most of the rain had moved north. On our way home, we stopped for fuel and a person asked us what we do when it rains. My driver looked at him, said “Get wet” and grinned.

Maybe God planned to divert us to Fayetteville instead of riding to Virginia. Soon after we returned home, my mom called my granny and she didn’t sound right. My driver and my mom rushed to her house, which is about 3 minutes from our house. My granny didn’t want to go to the hospital, so my driver told her she had a choice: my driver would carry her to the truck and take her to the hospital, or they would call 911 for an ambulance. My granny said she wasn’t going anywhere and my mom was already dialing 911. She had a stroke in her brain stem and went peacefully to Heaven a few days later. If my driver and I had gone to Virginia, he would not have been home to help my mom with my granny. My granny is a solid Christian, and my parents know that their faith in God and His Son will allow them to see my granny again. Do dogs go to Heaven? I certainly hope so ‘cuz I’d love to spend eternity with my family and all my Christian biker friends. This is Chewy “IronMutt”, BBMM, reporting. Keep your tongue in the wind! Chewy

Motor Maids IN cHESNEE

story & photos by. Petra H.

This past weekend the town of Chesnee was packed with motorcycles and riders from all over. It was the town’s Annual Antique Bikes on Main, and what a great event it was! The Motor Maids were present with a booth to encourage the riding of women. Petra Harris, Ellie Micklos and Diane Dixon enjoyed speaking with many ladies interested in riding. The people in Chesnee as well as their Mayor, were most gracious to all the Motor Maids. This event is held the last weekend of July, rain or shine. You’ll see so many different kinds of motorcycles at this event. There was a swap meet going on with any kind of part you may have been looking for. Many Motor Maids rode in to Chesnee to show their support! Rain on Saturday morning slowed down the activities, but Saturday afternoon the event started kicking into high gear. Sunday the roads were lined as far as you could see from Main Street with motorcycles! We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in Chesnee, South Carolina and look forward to being there again next year!

Insurance to Consider Love your bike? Of course you do! You wouldn’t be reading Behind Barz if you didn’t. But riding a motorcycle comes with its own set of risks: Cars that turn into your lane, trucks that run you off the shoulder, and drivers of all sorts acting like you’re invisible. When being a safe biker isn’t enough and you are involved in a wreck, you’re going to want to make sure that you have the best and right kind of insurance coverage. UM and UIM Coverage

Liability Insurance

Gap Insurance

We’d like to think that everyone follows the rules and maintains insurance coverage before heading out on the road. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. In the United States, more than 16% of motorists are uninsured. That means that if you are hit by one of these uninsured motorists—or if you are the victim of a hit and run driver—your damages and medical costs won’t be covered… unless you carry Uninsured Motorist (UM) insurance.

To protect yourself in the event that you’re the one that causes an accident, you should have enough liability insurance to cover a worst-case scenario. Liability insurance covers property damage and bodily injury when you do something negligent, and every driver is required to carry liability insurance.

Another type of insurance that is extremely valuable to those of you who own a newer bike is Gap Insurance. If you are in an accident and your insurance considers your vehicle a “total loss,” they pay you the appraised value of the bike. Not what you paid for it six months ago when you drove it off the lot, and not what you think it is worth, but the appraised value.

The same holds true for Underinsured Motorist (UIM) coverage. Imagine that you’re in a serious accident and rack up $100,000 worth of damages and unreimbursed costs. You think you’re lucky because the other driver had insurance. But then you learn that they only carried $30,000 worth of insurance, so they are underinsured. Unless you carry UM/UIM insurance, that additional $70,000 will have to be paid by YOU. It’s not fair and it’s not right, but it happens every day. That’s why I urge all drivers to carry UM/UIM coverage on their insurance. Buy as much as you can afford—this is no place to skimp on costs. Pray you never need to use it, but if the worst scenario happens, you’ll be prepared and covered so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.

The minimum amount of bodily injury insurance required in North Carolina is $30,000, meaning that your insurance will pay the injured person’s expenses up to $30,000. If you’re in a serious wreck, you could end up being one of those “underinsured motorists”—bodily injury costs could easily soar to $100,000 or even $1 million. If you’re not covered by enough insurance, the injured person could sue you personally and possibly win a judgment that takes everything you own. Again, protect yourself by getting as much insurance as you can afford.

So let’s say you bought that bike brand new six months ago for $25,000. The minute you take possession of it, the bike loses value and may have an appraised value of only $15,000. In order to buy the bike, you took out a dealer loan for $20,000. That means that you actually owe $5,000 more than what the bike is worth. That’s called being upside-down on a loan. If you’re in a wreck and your bike is totaled, the insurance company will only pay you the appraised value of $15,000—even though you owe $20,000. You’ll have to continue to pay that remaining $5,000 not covered by insurance out of your own pocket… unless you have gap insurance. Gap insurance covers the difference between the appraised value of the vehicle and what you actually owe on the vehicle.

By David Henson Managing partner of HensonFuerst Attorneys.

As long as you are upside-down on a loan, it’s smart to get gap insurance. Once you pay down the loan, you can drop gap insurance. But if you have a relatively large loan on a newer bike, you’ll be happy to have it if you’re in a total loss situation.

Check It Out So check out exactly how much coverage you have. Look on your declarations page (also called a “dec page”), which is the receipt given to you by the insurance company. It will spell out exactly what kinds of insurance you have, and how much it covers. If you can’t find your dec page, call your insurance company and have them send you another copy. Then, review your coverage and ask yourself: Does this amount of coverage make me feel safe? Insurance is about peace of mind! Ride Safe!


helping hands r/c story & poem: Lady D

fund raiser

photo: Moe

On June 22, 2013, the Helping Hands R/C helped another person in need. A scrumptious spaghetti dinner complete with Italian bread, Parmesan cheese, pound cake and drink was served as a fund raiser despite the rain for Tammi and Steven Miller. Tammi has cranial vasculitis and interstitial lung disease, both conditions are incurable. The prognosis for these conditions together they say is 3 -4 years to live and love, but God keeps the books. Those around her know the need as there are medical bills, housing bills, and 2 children to take care of. Tammi is one to take care of others, loves all she can and serves where ever she is able. Helping Hands gave their hands and heart in the heat of the kitchen to raise needed funds for Tammi. In addition they had a 50/50 drawing, an auction that included one of a kind art, and door prizes. Thank-you Helping Hands R/C for the help, love and honor to those around you. HHFFHH


If you know a need Make a way If you know a tear that falls Give a shoulder If you know one who is weak Give your strength Strength, Support and Care make a path for Love, Honor and Respect HHFFHH

by South Dakota National Guard (Notes) on Monday, July 1, 2013 at 8:07pm EDGEMONT, S.D. – A memorial ceremony was held today to dedicate an interpretive site that honors the Airmen of the North Carolina Air National Guard (NCANG) C-130 aircraft that crashed one year ago today while fighting the White Draw Fire near Edgemont.

“The unveiling of this marker here today will assure that these heroes will indeed live forever,” said Maj. Gen. Lusk. “To the families of these brave men, just know that we will always remember and acknowledge your sacrifices and your service, every step of the way. I hope from your perspective this dedication is indeed the legacies of your husbands, and that it is fair to say that the citizens of North Carolina and the citizens of South Dakota will forever share a kindred bond.”

Four members of the six-person Modular Airborne Firefighting System 7 (MAFFS-7) aircrew died when strong winds out of a thunderstorm caused their air tanker to impact the ground on a ridge top northeast of Edgemont. “We are honoring these six North Carolina Guardsmen for their heroism and we are dedicating this site so that people will remember them forever,” said South Dakota Lt. Gov. Matt Michels, during the ceremony. “It is impossible for any words to pass my lips that can express our incredible gratitude for the sacrifices that these men have made…but they will always be remembered by this memorial.” The MAFFS-7 C-130 aircraft that crashed was from the NCANG’s145th Airlift Wing based at Charlotte-Douglas International Airport. Killed were Lt. Col. Paul Mikeal, 42, of Mooresville; Maj. Joseph McCormick, 36, of Belmont; Maj. Ryan David, 35, of Boone; and Senior Master Sgt. Robert Cannon, 50, of Charlotte. Two survived but were seriously injured — Chief Master Sgt. Andy Huneycutt of Lancaster and Sgt. Josh Marlowe of Shelby. More than 100 family members, friends and colleagues were present for the ceremony and to see the unveiling of the interpretive signs. Located approximately seven miles north of Edgemont along Hwy 18, the interpretive site overlooks the ridge where the aircraft crashed while dropping fire retardant on the White Draw Fire.

National Guard and Michael Ortner, Fall River County Commission, unveil an interpretive sign near Edgemont, S.D., July 1, 2013, that honors the Airmen of the N.C. Air National Guard C-130 aircraft that crashed while supporting the White Draw Fire one year ago this day. (Army National Guard photo by Sgt. 1st. Class Don Matthews)(RELEASED)

“None of them took off that day to become heroes, in fact they would all tell us assuredly if they were here that they were simply answering a call to duty,” said Maj. Gen. Gregory Lusk, adjutant general of the N.C. National Guard. “They were simply doing the job they all love to do. As we pay tribute to the crew – by commemorating on the anniversary this site – we acknowledge that they join a very long line of Minutemen who have for over 376 years done exactly what they did; just answer the call of the neighbor in need, service to the community and service to our nation.” “I recall that first approach by a large air tanker, the roar of the props and turbines above the treetops…time and again, I witnessed how well it helped ground firefighters,” Black Hills National Forest Supervisor Craig Bobzien said of the MAFFS-7 aircrew. “Our purpose today probes deeper. We are peering into the tiny windows and inside the aircraft at the humans and focusing on the crew of MAFFS-7 – protecting our freedom and protecting us from peril. They served with honor and we are here to honor them.” The construction of the interpretive site and signs were a collaborative effort between the South Dakota National Guard and Black Hills National Forest officials. The interpretive site includes a parking area and signs that tell the story of the fire and the fatal accident.
