************************************************************************************************
We have lots to be thankful for even in these changing times.  We must never forget those who served our country to preserve our freedom and liberty.  We have several veterans in our club, and several veteran Ham Operators have passed on.  I was reminded of this when James Stidham, AC0Q, came
by the hamfest to visit with me.  James is the older brother of my friend, team-mate, co-worker as coaches, and boss, Fred Stidham.

James graduated from HS when I was in the 8th. grade, and was on the 1955 Hazard State Tournament Team.  He got his engineering degree and works and lives in Boulder, Colorado.  But we had the same ham teacher ("Elmer" sounds too effete, somehow), Woody Fugate, W4JDU.  So naturally, we talked about Woody, who also got many other folks started around here and in Ashland where he moved in the 70's.

Woody had written a story in the local paper about his experience at the Battle of Midway, the Carrier Air Battle in the Pacific, in June of 1942, which turned the war against Japan in our favor, even though it would still be  a long battle.  I had lost my copy of this story, but he still had one,  and offered
to sent me a copy.  So here it is, the best written and best story in the Hazard Herald (Voice?) of that series gathered by a local history teacher, Paul Taulbee, who also wrote for the paper.

Please take time to read the story through...I will try later to format it better and add some photos - 1.8 Meg pdf...

               The 2010 Hazard Hamfest was held on Oct. 30, 2010.   The weather was good
          and there was a good turnout.  The ARES Meeting was highlighted by Section
          Manager, Jim Brooks, KY4Z, District 9 DEC Ken Robinson, K4KCR, and
           Region 4 ASEC Fred Jones, WA4SWF.  The club webpage with many new
           features
has moved to http://kmarc.net  Check it out for many good pictures of the hamfest.
           The old website at Http://www.qsl.net/k4avx/  has many old pictures and lots of information. Not being updated.....






I hope you will enjoy the information on these pages.  They consist mostly of content I have developed over many years of doing newsletters .   Not too many links or dancing pigs or such, but I hope you will find something useful or interesting in these two areas.  Most of the  pages were done in Netscape Composer, and the latest ones are best viewed in 600 X 800 resolution.

Thanks, 73,
John Farler, K4AVX
