Mother Nature cooperates for Easter egg hunt

The more than 800 children at the Early Bird Kiwanis Clubs Easter egg hunt on Saturday morning, March 30, were happy to be able to find their eggs outdoors, after the weather forecast had left some doubt that this would happen.

Although the children would have happily found their candy-filled plastic eggs on wetter ground, Mother Nature had dried most of the lawn outside the Mabee Sports Center at Hannibal-LaGrange University.

We were really fortunate with the weather, said Kevin White, event coordinator with the Kiwanis Club. We had rain later on in the day, but it held off for the morning, and it was just almost perfect.

When they roped off the areas (for the three age divisions of children), they tried to keep them off the damp areas, White added.

The children age 9 and under participating totaled at least 800, White estimated. We average about 800 – year in and year out – and I would say we had every bit of that. … The turnout was in large part due to the publicity provided by the Courier-Post and other local media.

Prior to the egg hunt shortly after 10 a.m., drawings were held for many door prizes. Each child received a goodie bag of toys and other items along with one ticket for the door prizes, and additional tickets were sold for $1 each. Many prizes were donated, White said. We had a lot of donations from local merchants and really appreciate their help and contributions to make this a success.

Before the egg hunt the children were already playing with items found in their goodie bags. Stella Wilson said her Cardinals schedule was her favorite item, while her brother Haden favored his new water bottle.

The toddlers were the youngest to take part in the egg hunt, but many younger babies were present. Among them was 6-week-old Nathanael Foreman, son of Katie and Sam Foreman of Hannibal, accompanying his 1-year-old sister, Ruthmae.

Volunteers also helped during the drawings and egg hunt, White said. We had a lot of volunteers from inside Kiwanis and outside Kiwanis, from both companies and organizations.

One volunteer was a big Easter bunny, who was busy delivering door prizes to children seated with their families, while also posing for photos with the children.

His master’s voice

A tribute to the great American novelist Philip Roth at 80.

Philip Roth in New York in 2007. Photograph: Ethan Hill/Contour by Getty Images

1. Id taken the train out to East Hampton, Long Island, bringing with me to read only the first volume of John Cowper Powyss Wolf Solent. This was an ambiguous mission I was on Id been invited to a very nice rich girls familys summer house, and Im justified in calling her a girl because this was the summer after my first year of college and I was 19, a boy of 19. Wed been only friends at college but might be more, away from college: that was the ambiguous mission. I didnt know what I wanted.

On the train I stared out the window, not making it past more than a chapter of the Powys. The girl and her mother picked me up at the station, a five-minute drive there and back, just long enough that by the time we entered the house, through the kitchen, the girls younger brother was caught in the act of pulling from the broiler two overdone, smouldering lobsters, their red partly blacked. The mother chided him, but affectionately, and insisted the lobsters be dumped immediately in the trash. I thought, Ill eat those, but no. This was a period in my life when I was persistently being startled, to the point of violation, by the behaviour of the wealthy. No reading not Powys, nor F Scott Fitzgerald, nor Karl Marx could have prepared me to witness such a thing in real life. We ate something other than lobsters. Then I was shown to the guest room. It was beautifully quiet, with a scattering of books on the shelves.

An evening seemed to yawn before me the girl and I would have time to be confused about one another tomorrow and the next day. Everything was done very graciously in this house, no hurry. Left alone there with ponderous Powys, I reached instead for a book I hadnt known existed: Philip Roths novella The Breast.

Id at that point in my reading life kept a useless partition against Roth, who, thanks to the intimidating aura generated by a paperback copy of Letting Go on my mothers shelves, Id decided was a best-selling writer of grown-up realist novels of a sort that couldnt possibly interest me. Oh judgemental and defended youth! But wait, now I had to consider the claims of the books dust jacket, that Roth worked in the realm of morbid fantasy, too. The realm of Kafka. This wasnt fair, I thought. Kafka should belong to me.

Alone in the East Hampton guest room, I gobbled The Breast in one gulp. Thats how it came about, thats how I began taking Roth aboard, the first tiny dose a kind of inoculation to make me ready for the long readerly sickness I still endure. For it is a sickness, most especially for a reader who wants to be a writer, to open oneself to a voice as torrential and encompassing, as demanding and rewarding, as that of Roth.

2. My situation in the East Hampton summer house was the stuff of Jewish comedy, if Id had my Jewish antennae up. Had the brother been played by Christopher Walken, I was in a scene from Annie Hall. But I not only didnt have my Jewish antennae up, I didnt know I possessed any. By chance, and unlike a majority of Jews, Id been raised so as not to take being Jewish, or in my case half-Jewish, in any way personally. Id have to acquire those antennae elsewhere, by my reading.

It took overtly Jewish-American writing by Bernard Malamud, whod retired but was still lingering, thrillingly, around at the college the girl and I attended, and Saul Bellow, and yes, sometimes Roth, who is sometimes, when it serves the cause of the writing, overtly Jewish to illuminate the connection between what I knew semi-consciously from the writing of the less-overt, such as Nathanael West or Barry Malzberg or Norman Mailer, as well as from sources like Groucho Marx and Abbie Hoffman and my Uncle Fred. What was it that was illuminated? That something aggravated and torrential in my voice, or perhaps I should call it my attempt at having a voice, was cultural in origin, even if aggravated and torrential frequently in the cause of disputing or even denying that point of origin.

As Roth points out, the books arent Jewish because they have Jews in them. The books are Jewish in how they wont shut up or cease contradicting themselves, theyre Jewish in the way theyre sprung both from harangue and from defence against harangue, theyre Jewishly ruminative and provocative. Roth once said of Bellow that he closed the distance between Damon Runyon and Thomas Mann well, given the generation of reader Im from, Roth in turn closed the difference between Saul Bellow and Mad magazine. Thats to say, once Id gained access to what he had to offer, Roth catalysed my yearnings to high seriousness with the sense that the contemporary texture of reality demanded not only remorseless interrogation, but also remorseless caricature and ribbing. Contemporary reality, including perhaps especially the yearning to high seriousness, needed to be serially goosed.

Nasdaq, Libor, Rajaratnam, ‘Pay for Delay’: Compliance

Regulators cleared Nasdaq OMX Group Inc.s (NDAQ) plan to pay $62 million to compensate brokers for its mishandling of Facebook Inc. (FB)s public debut, dealing a defeat to Wall Street firms that say they lost many times that amount.

The Securities and Exchange Commission approved Nasdaqs request to change its rules and expand the compensation pool for member firms in the May 18 initial public offering. The funds will go to traders who lost money after a design flaw in the exchanges computers delayed Facebooks open and left them confused about how many shares they owned.

Nasdaqs proposal was opposed by Citigroup Inc. and UBS AG, which said in letters urging the SEC to reject it that losses within their market-making units exceeded $62 million. Nasdaq, balancing its role as an organization with legal immunity for technology breakdowns with its obligations to members, said the pool covers objective, discernible losses suffered by brokers.

While agreeing the proposal wont pay all purported losses, the SEC said it provides significantly more compensation for eligible claims, outside of litigation, than would otherwise be available, according to its order. Under existing rules, Nasdaqs liability for losses related to computer malfunctions is $3 million, and may have been as low as $500,000 in the Facebook case, the SEC said in its order.

The pricing of the first public transaction on May 18, a trade known as the IPO cross, took a half-hour longer than Nasdaq planned because of technical malfunctions. In May, Nasdaq OMX Chief Executive Officer Robert Greifeld acknowledged poor design in software put the opening auction into a loop that delayed its completion.

Nasdaqs handling of the Facebook IPO may still end up in court. In approving the rule change needed to accommodate the payouts, the SEC said the question of whether Nasdaq is entitled to regulatory immunity in its handling of the offering is outside the scope of the decision. Nasdaq has made releasing it from legal liability a condition for receiving compensation.

Regulatory oversight of Libor rates will be handed to the U.K. Financial Conduct Authority on April 1, under rules meant to restore credibility to the tainted benchmark.

The measures will ensure that whatever group eventually takes responsibility for setting the London interbank offered rate must corroborate submissions and monitor suspicious conduct, the Financial Services Authority said in a statement yesterday. The administrators of the rate and banks that participate will have to appoint a person approved by the regulator to oversee compliance.

Libor, used to set rates for more than $300 trillion of securities, is being overhauled after three lenders were fined for attempting to manipulate the benchmark and more than a dozen other lenders are still being investigated.

The show must go on at Destin Elementary School

Students from Destin Elementary School performed their monologues from “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” on Tuesday. Presented by the Emerald Coast Theatre Company and Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation, the students worked on their monologues for 10 weeks.

Ten tiny thespians transformed Destin Elementary School’s cafeteria into a Broadway stage Tuesday afternoon as they recited their monologues from “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown.”

Led by their instructor, Nathanael Fisher, the producing artistic director of the newly-formed Emerald Coast Theatre Company, in conjunction with the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation for its All Kinds of Art program, held a 10-class workshop from Jan. 22 to Apr. 9 at Destin Elementary School for students in grades second through fourth.

This acting class was the first of its kind to be held at DES and it offered the children more than just a chance to develop their acting muscles. The classes provide the children an unmatched level of confidence, not only in their skills as performers and public speakers, but an overall confidence in them selves as well.

According to Fisher, although only 10 students were present for the performance on Tuesday, there were actually 11 dedicated students enrolled in the program. But, unfortunately, one small starlet was under the weather and was unable to perform.

If nerves played any sort of a role for the teensy troupe on Tuesday, it didnt show. Trudging along like true professionals, shaking off any butterflies they may have had fluttering about their bellies, the group pressed on, keeping the crowd made up of their parents, grandparents, siblings and friends, laughing the whole time. As they say, the show must go on.

Second-grader Gabriel Stevens, 7, hit the nail on the head so to speak with his portrayal of Linus van Pelt, Charlie Brown’s best friend and the younger brother of Lucy van Pelt.

Known for being a bit shy, Linus is rarely seen without his security blanket throughout “Peanuts,” history. During his monologue, Stevens played on this dependence as he tugged on an imaginary blanket during his monologue. After his performance, Stevens told The Log that this wasn’t his first time on stage, and it wouldn’t be his last either.

“I’m going to be in ‘Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp,'” said Stevens, referring to one of the events the Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation and the Emerald Coast Theatre Company has slated for this summer. When asked how he conquered his stage fright, Stevens said he didn’t have any.

“I wasn’t nervous at all, I like doing this.”

What would the disciples be like today?

1. Disciple: John

There I was, sitting in my office in the company I ran with my brother James, looking over the floor of our production facility we manufacture parts for the local aviation company when I see this guy sitting at one of the employee picnic tables, tossing bread to birds.

Its a beautiful setting beside a small lake. I used to do a little fishing there when I had spare time.

I felt the urge to go outside and talk to him. He reminded me of those hippie-types from my parents era. His name was Jesus, and he had come from south of the border.

He had an easy manner, and looked me in the eye and asked, Do you want to make peoples spirits soar like you do those jets? Come with me. Continue Reading

At first, I thought he was loco. But there was something about him that struck a chord deep within me.

I decided to take a sabbatical. My brother James and I left the business to our cousin Zeb, and we set out to see what Jesus had in mind for us.

We were known for our energy and being a bit boisterous. They called us the sons of Thunder because we were loud and maybe because of the Harleys we ride. We calmed down with Jesus and set off with him.

We went to the homeless shelters, the schools where children were struggling. We even hung out at the jail. Jesus was into that kind of thing giving people a way to a better life.

Wherever we went, he gave people hope, and treated them with dignity and respect. Some called him a preacher, but it wasnt always his words. Mostly it was the way he lived his life: helping people connect with God in real and tangible ways.
