Web sites to his friends and, now that he's a friend of LPZ, we figured
you'd like to see what an insane maniac he is. Welcome to the family.

Nation's Only Two Hand Transplant Recipients
To Set Off U.S. Largest Fireworks Event
Recipients Will Use New Left Hands To Light Up
Louisville 2001' LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Matthew Scott
and Jerry Fisher, the only two people in the United States to receive
a transplanted hand, will serve as official "Thundernators" at the Kentucky
Derby Festival "Thunder Over Louisville" event April 21, by pushing
the buttons to ignite the largest fireworks display in America.
Mike Berry, Kentucky Derby Festival president, made the announcement
during a press conference at Jewish Hospital today. "The Derby Festival
feels fortunate to have these two courageous men who took part in a
pioneering medical procedure to act as 'Thundernators' for this year's
Thunder Over Louisville," said Berry. Both Matt and Jerry's injuries
were caused by firework accidents. We thought it was fitting that these
two men -- better than anyone -- could reinforce the message that fireworks
should be left to the professionals. These men are making the most of
every day, and will have come full-circle in igniting the largest annual
fireworks show in the United States," he added.
Dear Daniel Nester:
This is a passage from the Pendelton County Times' "Farmnotes,"
a weekly column by Roger D. Dahmer for
that West Viginia paper.
It appears in the current issue.
"Greetings one and all. Boy, winter just doesn't want to let go, does
it (sic). Spring offically came in on March 20, but you'd never know
it with that last snow we got. It was a dandy, wasn't it? Actually,
it was a dandy. The ground was thawed; the snow was wet and the melt
was slow enough that much of the moisture got into the ground. It will
definately help with ground moisture situation, which was bad. Some
folks have expressed to me their optimism that this last snowfall will
be a big help to the first (sic) cutting hay crop. Praise God for His
wisdom and blessings."
