Latest update on John’s Condition

July 23, 2012 Leave a comment

This is from Steven Kern.

Hello all.

Another update on John – his primary issue now is the pneumonitis caused by the inhalation of sea water.  He is being weaned off of the extra breathing support, but this process will take several days at least.  He is being placed intermittently on CPAP which supports his breathing but has never required formal endotracheal intubation or mechanical ventilation.  Infection is always a concern, and he is being treated with antibiotics prophylactically.

I have returned to the US but will continue to update you as John progresses.

Best, Steve

CONGRATULATIONS to Doc Lucky Meisenheimer for winning The International Book Award and National Indie Excellence Award in the category of Science Fiction for his science fiction thriller, The Immune!

Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of JPX Media Group, said 2012 The International Book Award’s contest yielded thousands of entries from authors and publishers around the world, which were then narrowed down to the final results. Also, with the 2012 National Indie Excellence Award, thousands of entries were submitted, more so than in previous years. We are proud of The Immune garnering such  prestigious awards within the first year of its release.

Also, The Immune is a finalist for the prestigious ForeWord Reviews Book of the Year Awards. Winners will be announced on June 23rd in California at the American Library Association convention.

Jacquie Krah of http://www.Lytherus.com recently reviewed Doc Lucky’s award winning work and said, “The story began as amusing and quickly evolved to brilliant with a libertarian-themed undercurrent that never took away from the entertainment value. If I had my way, The Immune would be taught in political science and literature classes next to allusion-filled classics like Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies.”

MAYOR BUDDY DYER’S LAKE CANE POISON PIPELINE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

     MAYOR BUDDY DYER’S LAKE CANE POISON PIPELINE MUST BE STOPPED

Doc Lucky Meisenheimer leads the fight against the Orange County’s plans to install a 5 foot drainage pipe capable of discharging 60,000 gallons a minute of poisoned water into Lake Cane, the site of internationally-renowned  Lucky’s Lake Swim.

March 13, 2012- Orlando, FL. – On March 1, Lake Cane residents were notified that the Orange County is installing a 5 foot diameter discharge pipe to spew untreated, contaminated street water filled with oil, fertilizers, and toxins directly into Lake Cane.  This is a city project draining poisons into a privately- owned county lake from one water district boundary into another. The project has been planned for over a year, but Lake Cane residents were not notified until someone noticed contractors surveying the easement area for bids. The city of Orlando has spent over $50K tax dollars developing a project nobody wants and plans to spend up to $700K in completing it.  Ironically, the county has scheduled to spend several hundred thousand dollars in lake restoration. One government is cleaning a lake that another government wishes to pollute.

Not only will this project destroy wildlife, devalue property, and contaminate one of the city’s cleanest lakes, but it will also jeopardize an internationally-recognized event hosted by Doc Lucky Meisenheimer entitled Lucky’s Lake Swim http://www.luckyslakeswim.com. Since 1989, Meisenheimer has led thousands of professional athletes, triathletes, Special Olympians, and fitness swimmers in swimming across Lake Cane from his dock behind his estate every single morning. Each morning, as many as 200 swimmers – often from around the globe – show up for the swim.

In the face of the budding backlash, City Hall has temporarily paused the project while it looks at alternatives. The problem is with the city stormwater system that collects runoff along Vineland Road and channels it to a nearby wetland. The city plan would re-route runoff wastewater from Vineland Road and discharge it untreated through the 5 foot diameter poison pipeline into Lake Cane, an 82 acre spring-fed lake. Roadwaste would be steered through a baffle box. But Doc Lucky and Lake Cane residents proclaim that the baffle boxes only stop visible trash, not pollutants such as oil, gas, heavy metal toxins, grease, weedkillers, and fertilizers.

Doc Lucky is leading the charge with Occupy Lake Cane and the Lake Cane Restoration Society to stop what they call The Mayor Buddy Dyer Poison Pipeline http://www.mayorbuddydyerpoisonpipeline.com  Today, Doc Lucky and his activist mission were featured on the front page of The Orlando Sentinel: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/orange/os-lucky-versus-orlando-pipe-20120312,0,2291511.story

On Wednesday, March 14, there will be a community meeting about the plan at 6pm in the Dr. Phillips High School cafeteria, 6500 Turkey Lake Rd., Orlando, FL 32819.
