A MESSAGE TO ALL DEPARTMENT & VICE DEPARTMENT HEADS
By CMDR Patrick Litton
How is everyone doing? I am writing to you because of your position as a Department Head or Vice Department Head aboard the USS Jaresh-Inyo. I had some thoughts, and I wanted to send them your way.
There has been a lot going on with the Jaresh-Inyo in the last months. We have several new crew members, our newsletter is on the verge of being published, the web site is under development, The list for the ship is being well used, we have our own Facebook site, and the Marine Strike Group has been formed and activated. And as always, there some other things in the works. In other words, the Jaresh-Inyo is growing, and maturing as we are in our shakedown phase.
The Jaresh-Inyo is a correspondence based ship, as you know. As we do not have monthly meetings, we must rely on our list, and e-mail, as they are our two primary forms of communication. The Jaresh-Inyo had some bumpy moments during our formation in the beginning. Still, we are well beyond this now, and things with the ship and crew are beginning to gel nicely.
In that we are correspondence based, I would like to stress the importance of communication with each of you. As you are a Department or Vice Department Head; you constitute the backbone of our ship. Without you, and your regular input, the Command Staff has no current information to use to help pilot the ship. Without communication from you to those in your department, the crew members have no guidance to help them do their jobs on the Jaresh-Inyo.
I am not saying that the DH's or VDH's are not doing their respective jobs, no not at all. This is not meant as a lecture or a criticism. I would simply encourage each of you to communicate with the Command Staff, with those in your departments, and with the crew as a whole. Encourage those you deal with to join the list, and the Facebook page, if they have not done so. We will need Department/Vice Department Head reports for the newsletter. Ask your crew members to contribute articles, puzzles, pictures, poetry, and anything else related to the Jaresh-Inyo, Star Trek and the Sci-fi world. We can use these materials for the newsletter publications. With our list and the newsletter, and the forth coming web site in the near future; there is endless options for us to pursue in and out of the fictional realm of the Jartesh-Inyo.
Do not forget to list community service or individual service that your department members do. Not sure of what they do, ask, and be sure to keep current with their activities, as well as your own. Then report it so we know who is doing what on the ship.
There are several new members on the Jaresh-Inyo. They have been been put on the list, and as we get new members, they will be listed as well. My point is that as a department head, irrespective of which department that new member is posted to, we should make a point of welcoming them to the ship. We need to set the example and welcome everyone that comes aboard. HA, you thought I would list the newbies. Not sure, check with the list or ask.
When you get this communication, I am requesting that you would please contact me. This is so that I may know you have received this. I realize that you may have a report in the first edition of the newsletter that is coming out soon. I would still like to hear from each of you. I would also like to know where you stand in regards to your department. Do you have any needs, questions or suggestions. please contact me. Normally, you would follow the Chain-of-Command and go to the Second Officer, CMDR Cory Whorton with any of these; but humor me this time. :)
The CO and the Command Staff wants only the best for you as members of the Jaresh-Inyo. And as The leadership, within the Command Structure of the ship, we need to know how you are with your departments. We want to be the premiere ship in Region 12! And there is NO reason we can't be the best in our region and within STARFLEET! Why all the above, what's the big deal? Well, any ship that does not have solid and continuous communication dies. The one that does have this will continue to grow and thrive. It is that simple. I want us to grow and thrive, so that everyone knows of us!
Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you...
Wow. I mean, WOW!
This has been one heck of a ride so far! Between September 15th,
2009 and as of the date I write this (February 18th,
2010), we are at THIRTY-EIGHT members! Not too shabby for a
Shakedown Cruise, is it? I want to thank everyone for recruiting,
talking to friends, and getting them interested in not only our
chapter but in STARFLEET as well. I feel we are truly starting on an
inexplicable adventure, and I look forward to us all being together
years down the road!
So we are five
months into our nine-month shakedown cruise. Most of you are
probably wondering, “Where do we go after we get commissioned?”
That’s a very good question. We have our online community at the
Yahoo! Group, we have our Face book page, and we have snail mail,
but what do we do as a chapter? Our individual strengths will make
our collective chapter that much better!
Do you like to write? We will be starting our chapter fiction in the near future. We also tried to do a SIM on the Yahoo! Group but that didn’t take off too well. Do you do community service? GREAT! Tell us about it! Community service and charity events are a major part of SFI.
There’s so much to talk about that I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around it right now. Let’s start with recapping all of the MSRs I have submitted over the past few months. Allow me this time to say that ANYONE can send me information to include into the MSR (Monthly Status Report). I would LOVE to see a tidbit from everyone every month about something they have done, and it not only has to be STARFLEET related, but by goodness you can tell me you are on the Principal’s/Dean’s List at your real school, you have been awarded some certificate from the local Civitans, or whatever news you want to share. A few simple sentences are quite all right for this.
What is the MSR? You ask. The MSR, or Monthly Status Report, is the required report that I have to file with the higher ups. It lists our roster, our academy graduates, and the information I type in that I get from you guys. It also lists our promotions (my favorite!). The report is filed in the database and is sent automatically to the regional coordinator and the Chief of Shakedown Operations on the ‘Fleet level. I also send it to our Executive and Second Officer as well as the Commanding and Executive Officer of our Support Chapter, the USS BortaS.
Now for five
months in review (the next review won’t be so long considering that
many months won’t have passed):
9/20: We have assigned all of the current members to their
respective divisions and chosen division heads for them. At this
point, we are waiting on CompOps MP Team to transfer the remaining
crew aboard. The CO and XO are working on the chapter handbook,
by-laws, and constitution of the chapter and should have these ready
by next reporting period.
10/15-CO Hollifield welcomes RADM Valerie Rose as the new Chief of
Engineering and her brother, ENS Jim Hook, who shall choose his
department at a later date.
Report from CMDR Litton, Executive Officer: * Participated in the American Red Cross Holiday mail for Heroes Christmas card program. I sent out 15 cards to the American Red Cross. * Participated in the Xerox Christmas card program to send a Christmas card to a soldier, service personnel or a veteran. * Marine Toys for Tots- I was unable to volunteer for collection duties. So, I donated 2 new toys at the channel 4(NBC) drop-off site, here in Columbus. * Touching Little Lives-volunteer work in program that makes jumpsuits and blankets for premature babies. The program is based here in Ohio. * Participated in my local church food drive for local distribution. * Volunteer one day a week in my local church for general office duties.
The Science Department has been doing very well. MCPO Towne has been doing a fantastic job since joining the department. Between Robert and myself, we have posted 14 articles this month (7 a piece), and even our CO has joined in with one article on Astronomy. Future plans are being developed to contact other Science Departments within region 12, and we are going to contact the CSO for our "Auntie" ship, the USS Odin. The department is making plans for the up-coming ship newsletter, and Robert has already submitted material for the website, as it develops. Of course there is room for additional scientists in our department, but I would say we have made a good start for the month of November.
212th MSG "Warriors of Justice"- As
of November 5th, our unit was activated. I am working on a message
on the list to our unit for Nov.29th to address our unit, and to
tighten up my responsibilities as the OIC. The MURP Marine Unit
Profile was sent in by BGEN Hollifield Jr on 11/27/09.
CAPT Sam Cummings has decided to become Command Adviser due to real
life obligations and a concern of not having adequate time for the
role of Second Officer, so effective immediately, LCDR Cory Whorton
is the permanent Second Officer. Congratulations, sir.
The month of December was a little slow for us, but the crew went on
Shore Leave for the holidays for two weeks, so that is to be
expected. This month also saw some other folks besides BGN
Hollifield working their brain at the Academies.
Wow this one is just sliding in under the wire!
Can you believe how much we have accomplished in such a short time?
You folks are completely AWESOME! I don’t have to write a bunch of
fluff and filler for my reports because you folks do your jobs and
do them well. I am honored to be the Captain of the best-damned ship
in the ‘verse.
One thing to note is we need a title for our newsletter! What ideas
do you have?
As always, my door is open. Feel free to email, call, Facebook, IM,
or text me if you ever get a notion. I am here to serve.
Welcome crew and friends of the Jaresh-Inyo to the first issue of
our newsletter! As the Executive Officer, it is always a delight to
see something new like the newsletter 'take flight,' as it were. It
is my hope that this newsletter will give voice to the crew and our
friends and associates, and that this newsletter will become a fine
tradition of expression for a long time to come on the Jaresh-Inyo.
The bridge has been a busy place in the last several weeks.
Overseeing the addition of new crewmembers and the addition in
members of the Command Staff. Our newest members, Robert Mounce and
ENS Richard McCreery, who just came aboard recently add to the
diversity of our crew. And to those others who have come aboard
recently, I add my welcome and appreciation for you joining the
finest ship in the Fleet. I would also RADM Valerie J. Rose as our
new 3rd Officer in the Command Department. BGEN Hollifield, CMDR
Whorton, MCPO Towne and I welcome you Valerie!
I would also like to congratulate those who have recently earned promotions aboard ship. Cory Whorton just earned his rank of Commander. We appreciate Cory's hard work for the Jaresh-Inyo and his community. ENS Charles Robinson and ENS Tim Reklau (also new members) earned their rank to Ensign for passing the OTS course. Also Robert Towne for earning the rank of Master Chief Petty Officer, as our Command Non-Commissioned Officer. Well done to each of you, and keep up the good work!
suspect that I joined the USS Jaresh-Inyo for many of the same
reasons the other crewmembers joined. To have fun, meet new people
and develop friendships. To serve in the fictional world of Star
Trek, aboard a fast, powerful and awesome that can over take any
enemy in the universe. We have that in the Prometheus class. On
the real side of things, we have a crew with so much potential for
doing things in both the real and fictional worlds that there is no
limit to what we can do!
helping our families, helping each other as a crew, or doing various
community related work; there is nothing stopping us from living the
dream of the "Golden Bird," Gene Roddenberry. The crew of the
Jaresh-Inyo has already done amazing things by coming together as a
crew. There has been solid work done to this point. Let's come
together even more now in the coming months. I urge those who have
not decided upon a place on our ship to join in and share in the fun
and adventure that we are on. Every Department Head would love to
have you join their department! If I or the Command Staff can help
you decide, please do not hesitate to contact one of us. I would be
more than happy to help.
the words of Jean-Luc Picard, "Engage." Let's go out there and
continue to explore what is 'out there.' The Jaresh-Inyo crew is
the finest in STARFLEET. In the growth of any ship, it is critical
that we keep the dream of Star Trek alive. To be the best, and to
add to our crew size, and help each other in the process. I wish
you, the crew of the Jaresh-Inyo continued success and enjoyment on
our tour of the universe.
The time has really been going by fast for us. I would like to start off by giving props to Ltc. Kevin Cozart for the logo design. I think our recruiting is going along great and I hope by the end of the month to have a flyer ready for us to send to potential new members. On the Operations side of things I have now structured the department and implemented the shuttlecraft for our ship. We have lots of open positions in the operations department and if anyone is interested in one please let me know. We need to name the Shuttlecraft onboard the ship so I have proposed a few names, but I would love to have the crew input on this so I have devised a game called Name that Shuttlecraft after all entries are received I will send out the ballot for us to vote on the names. Also anyone who would like to be a shuttlecraft pilot (no matter what your current position is) please let me know so I can get you on the list. I just want to say to everyone keep up the good work and let’s keep pushing forward.
Name that Shuttlecraft
Shuttlecraft Naming is now open if you have a name you would like to submit please email it to email@example.com by February 28, 2010. The vote will take place shortly after that.

As you can see, our newsletter is yet to be named. Please offer suggestions and then we, the crew, can vote for our favorite. Deadline for suggestions is March 15.
Please submit your articles, AER, fiction, up-coming events, etc. This is YOUR newsletter, help fill it with what you want to see or share. Content suggestions and section title suggestions are always welcome.
Thanks go to Kevin Cozart for designing our ship's logo.
To quote our CO:
Everyone who has a Division ... She has been patiently waiting on US to get HER stuff; she has had the layout ready for months! I am ashamed at me for not letting you folks know sooner. WAIT!
Before any of you say "but I don't
know what to write", that's absolute posh. Everyone has made
fantastic emails over this list for the past few months, so follow
that same vein when writing. Mine will probably be long and
"Captain, the most elementary and valuable statement in
science...the beginning of wisdom...I do not know"
Come, come in and welcome to the Science Labs of the Jaresh-Inyo.
Our Geophysics Officer, MCPO Robert Towne and I are very glad to
have you join us! The labs seem so empty with just the two of us,
that company is always a welcomed treat for us.
For the last several months now, Robert and I have been putting many
articles on the list serve. This has not been to amuse ourselves.
Or because we are bored down in the Sciences. Nor because we want to
see who could contribute the most articles in a certain amount of
time. No. The reason we have been doing this we believe we believe
in sharing the wealth of knowledge that the world of science has to
Actually, it is the amateurs in various fields of science who are a great aide to many professional scientists. This is true in the field of Astronomy. If it were not for the amateur Astronomer, many of the important discoveries in say, finding comets would not have taken place. So, for the scientists in the field, those who provide added information and knowledge are a major force in the various fields of science.
When most people hear the word 'education,' they often freeze up and think of classrooms and having to memorize facts and figures. True, that is part of the education process. And when they hear 'science' added to education, most will groan and head for the door. Fortunately, this is changing more and more these days. Not all think this way, as science is gaining ground in popularity.
Robert and I do not believe in pounding facts and figures at you. We are more about the one aspect of education that is gaining ground in the scientific community. That of sharing knowledge with others. That educating best comes when a person is open to learning, and understanding new concepts.
the coming months, we will continue to share articles with you.
Yet, there will be other types of educational information put on the
list serve and the our newsletter. There will be short bio's of
scientists, articles on real-world things like the space program,
quizzes on various topics, and whatever else we can come up with.
We are also working on preparations to contact other Science
Departments on other ships throughout Region 12. The purpose is to
see if we can gain contact and begin to share and work together in
our region. Hopefully, we will get a good response in this
Sharing is a two-way process. Robert and I would like to see other
members on the Jaresh-Inyo join in the fun and excitement of
learning about science. If you are in school and learn something
about science, write a short piece and send it in to the
newsletter. If you come across an article, or something related to
any form of science, send in to our Chief of Communications.
Nothing is too small to add to one's knowledge.
is the not knowing, or to borrow from a book title, one who has "The
Passion To Know," that drives us science types. Whether you are a
professional, or an amateur, or just curious...please join us in the
awe and beauty of our universe and our own planet, Terra.
Attention "Warriors of Justice,"
Greetings Marines. I would like to take this opportunity to again
welcome our new Deputy Officer In Charge, COL Christina Doane to our
unit. It is a pleasure to have her join us in the unit. COL Doane
comes with much experience, including having been a former OIC. She
has done a myriad of assignments within STARFLEET, and has very good
organizational skills. She will be working closely with me to
further develop ideas for our unit, as well as the general running
of our unit. If you have not welcomed her, please do so, as I am
sure she would like to hear from you.
Also in the OIC report, I saw that we currently have 15 unit
members, both Active and Reserve. This is awesome, as this is half
of the Jaresh-Inyo crew! Now this is great, but we need to spread
the word about the SFMC Marines. Talk up our ship, and get those
you know to join the Jaresh-Inyo. Tell them about your experience
as a marine. This way we can have an even larger presence on the
Jaresh-Inyo. The key is to have them to join the ship, first and
would encourage also encourage all Marines in our unit to contact
either COL Doane or myself. This is so that we keep in touch with
each other. A simple greeting would work, or a conversation.
Whatever works for you. We would like to know how you are doing at
all times. Either use the list or e-mail would work. We are
striving to have a tight and solid unit. Communication is a vital
part of this.
There will be more information coming your way soon. One question I
have is: what name would you like for this report? Any suggestions
on a better name would be helpful. All suggestions will be
collected so we can vote on a name.
That is all for this report. I know we can become the best unit in the Corps! We have the ability and the talent, let's be the best at protecting the President of the UFP!At ease Marines
Also any new members that are interested in the Operations department please contact me so we can find you a spot. I have had a lot happen in my personal life over the past few weeks and I hope to soon share it with you all soon, that has been the reason I have been away quiet a bit. Well at this rate I have a novel going so I just want to say in closing .... My We Go Forth In This Time A Brave Crew and Strong Mission .. For Excellence and Peace!

The History and
Origins of Pathology
of pathology can
be traced to the earliest application of the scientific
the field of medicine,
a development which occurred in the Middle
Golden Age and
Renaissance. Early systematic human dissections were
carried out by the Ancient
Greek physicians Herophilus
of Chalcedon and Erasistratus
of Chios in
the early part of the third century BC. The
first physician known to have made postmortem dissections was
the Arabian physician Avenzoar (1091–1161). Rudolf
is generally recognized to be the father of microscopic pathology.
Most early pathologists were also practicing physicians or surgeons.
ugh the pathology
of contagion was
understood by Muslim
the time of Avicenna (980–1037)
who described it in The
Canon of Medicine (c.
first physician known to have made postmortem dissections was
physician Avenzoar (1091–1161)
who proved that the skin disease scabies was
caused by a parasite,
followed by Ibn
1213) who used dissection to discover pulmonary
In the 15th
century, anatomic dissection was repeatedly used by the Italian
to determine cause of death. Antonio
Benivieni is also credited with having introduced necropsy to the
medical field. Perhaps
the most famous early gross pathologist was Giovanni
Sedibus et Causis Morborum per Anatomem Indagatis,
published in 1761, describes the findings of over 600 partial and
complete autopsies, organized anatomically and methodically
correlated with the symptoms exhibited by the patients prior to
their demise. Although the study of normal anatomy was already well
advanced at this date, De
one of the first treatises specifically devoted to the correlation
of diseased anatomy with clinical illness. By
the late 1800s, an exhaustive body of literature had been produced
on the gross anatomical findings characteristic of known diseases.
The extent of gross pathology research in this period can be
epitomized by the work of the Viennese pathologist (originally from
Hradec Kralove in the Czech Rep.) Carl
who is said to have performed 20,000 autopsies, and supervised an
additional 60,000, in his lifetime.
in the Night Sky
Each star is an individual with its own
personality. Thousands are visible on any clear night far removed
from city lights. Together with the faint glow of myriad others the
tapestry of the celestial sphere is fashioned.
Stars come in different colors, sizes, shapes
and ages. One trait that makes a star unique is its brightness.
Now let’s look at the five brightest stars:
The brightest star in the sky is Sirius. Sirius
is derived from the Greek word Seirius meaning “searing” or
“scorching”. Sirius resides in the constellation Canis Major, the
Big Dog. Sirius which is 8.5 light years from the Sun is best seen
at favorable times during the winter months for Northern Hemisphere
observers and can be seen in the eastern sky in December and in the
southern sky in January and February. Sirius is 23 times more
luminous and about twice the mass and diameter of the Sun. Sirius
appears so bright in part because it is the fifth closest star to
The second brightest star is Canopus. Canopus
resides in the constellation Carina, The Keel. In modern odysseys
spacecraft such as Voyager 2 use the light from Canopus to orient
themselves in the sea of space. Canopus is a yellow-white F super
giant and is 316 light years from our Sun. To catch a glimpse of it
from middle and southern locations in the United States look for the
bright star low in the southern horizon during the winter months.
Canopus is located 36 degrees below the brightest star in the sky,
Sirius. The further south you are the better your view will be.
The third brightest star is Alpha Centauri
which is a system composed of three gravitational bound stars. The
two main stars are Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B. The
tiniest star in the system is a red dwarf Alpha Centauri C. The
Alpha Centauri system is a special one at an average 4.3 light years
these stars are our nearest known neighbor in space beyond our solar
system. Alpha Centauri A and B are remarkably Sun-like with Alpha
Centauri A being a near twin of the Sun (yellow G star). Compared
to our Sun Alpha Centauri A is 1.5 times as luminous and Alpha
Centauri B is half as luminous. Because of its positioning the sky
The Alpha Centauri system is not easily visible in much of the
Northern Hemisphere. An observer must be at latitudes south of 28
degrees north or roughly from Naples, Florida and locations further
The fourth brightest is Arcturus. Arcturus is
the brightest star in the northern celestial hemisphere (the first
three in this list are actually in the southern celestial hemisphere
though seasonally they are visible from the northern hemisphere of
Earth). Arcturus is 37 light years from the Sun. It is an orange
giant, twice as massive and 215 times as bright as the Sun and is
known as the Bear Watcher and follows Ursa Major the Great Bear
around the northern celestial pole. The name itself derives from the
Greek word arktos meaning bear. Arcturus is in the last stages of
its normal life and will one day evolve into a ring type nebula.
Vega is the fifth brightest star in the sky.
The name is derived from the Arabic word for Swooping Eagle or
Vulture. Vega is in the constellation of Lyra, a small but prominent
constellation that is home to the Ring Nebula and the Star Epsilon
Lyrae. Vega is 25 light years distance and is a hydrogen burning
dwarf star 54 times more luminous and 1.5 times more massive than
the Sun. In 1984, a disk of cool gas surrounding Vega was
discovered-the first of its kind. The disk extends 70 Earth-Sun
distances from the star. The discovery was important because a
similar disk is theorized to have played an integral role in planet
development within our own solar system.

Explanation of Terms*Charismatic = I believe all the gifts mentioned in the Bible are active today. Everyone has been given a gift or gifts, it's not just "one size fits all" or in this case, it's not "one gift fits all".
Charismatic Christianity is a Christian doctrine that maintains that modern-day believers experience miracles, prophecy, speaking in tongues, and other spiritual gifts as described in 1 Corinthians 12-14 of the Bible. The term "charismatic" derives from the Greek word χάρισμα ("gift," itself derived from χάρις, "grace" or "favor") which is the term used in the aforementioned passage.
"Charismatic Christian" and "renewalist" also can be used as umbrella terms to describe those modern Christians who are in agreement with this theological position, and believe that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit seen in the first century Christian Church are available to contemporary Christians and may be experienced and practiced today. Charismatic Christians include Pentecostals, neocharismatics, and members of the charismatic movement.

***Red Road - One may be of any race or of almost any religion and walk the Red Road. The Good Red Road is a path, a way of living. It's full meaning is the way one acts, the methods one uses, and what directs one's doing. There is more to the Red Road than spoken word or written words on paper. It is behavior, attitude, a way of living, a way of "doing" with reverence - of walking strong yet softly, so as not to harm or disturb other life. The Red Road is a pathway to truth, peace and harmony.
