MISHAWAKA - A documentary movie surrounding the survival story of an ace fighter pilot whose plane was hit by enemy aircraft fire in WWII will be released in December, 2010. Colonel Charles O’Sullivan enlisted in the war in 1941. He flew combat in the 39th Fighter Squadron. The ace fighter pilot shot down five enemy aircraft during the war before his own plane was tagged by a Japanese fighter plane. After being forced to crash land in the jungles of New Guinea, the colonel had to quickly learn how to survive on his own. “It’s a big island and I was out by myself for about a month. I lost 45 pounds during that time and had troubles with unfriendly natives,” O’Sullivan said.After spending 30 days searching for food and trying to survive, the colonel found an Australian commando who helped him get home. The colonel shared his story with students at Schmuker Middle School in Mishawaka on November 11, 2010. His son -- Major General Peter K. Sullivan, a Notre Dame graduate and Air Force veteran -- was also there. The movie, called “Injury Slight, Please Advise,” is expected to be released in stores December, 2010.
Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York
Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, owes about £ 2 million, even after her ex-husband Prince Andrew gave her a £1.5 million bail-out. Fergie has offered her creditors a 25% or nothing deal. One of her creditors, a 42 year old bachelor named Johnny O'Sullivan, doesn't want to take the deal. O'Sullivan was her personal assistant and friend for 14 years and lent her about £70,000 during that time.
O’Sullivan was the person whom Fergie referred to when she was filmed accepting a £27,000 down payment from the undercover newspaper reporter posing as a businessman anxious to get access to Prince Andrew. The Duchess claimed that she wanted the money for O’Sullivan's tuition for a postgraduate course at a New York University. O’Sullivan refuses to talk about the matter, but according to friends he is ‘very hurt’ that he has been offered so little, especially as the money he used to help Fergie’s business was his life savings.

Phil Sullivan, Aspen's "free taxi driver".
Sullivan fights the good fight for freedom in Aspen, Colorado District Court Judge Gail Nichols issued an injunction Friday against Philip Lee Sullivan in an effort to make him stop his underground late-night taxi service in Aspen. However, Sullivan said he has, and will, ignore the injunction. He said he will continue offering rides home to people he calls “friends” and will continue to accept money for doing so. “I guess I’m interested in seeing how far they can push me and how far I can be pushed,” said Sullivan, 74, a former local taxi driver and a longtime professional driver. Sullivan could face jail time if he continues to violate the injunction.
Hazel O'Sullivan, model.
Ireland just got its own Reality TV tattoo show folks and it began inking away today in Temple Bar. Aptly called 'Dublin Ink' the skin artists chose hot Irish model Hazel O'Sullivan as their first human canvas when those cameras started rolling...

When Alicia Sullivan was younger, the Arizona Diamondbacks told her no. But on March 20 at the 2010 season auditions, Sullivan received a resounding yes from Arizona's professional baseball team. When the D-backs faced the Colorado Rockies at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 4, 2010 at Chase Field in Phoenix, Sullivan started the evening by singing "The National Anthem."
"I'm so excited," the long-time baseball fan said. "I auditioned when I was younger and decided to do it again this year. I'm a big baseball fan." Sullivan, 18, was born and raised in Kingman and recently graduated high school. She performed so well at the audition she was named top qualifier.
It is not often that somebody gets to name a dinosaur.
Robert M. Sullivan, senior curator of paleontology and geology at The State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg recently got that chance. He named a new link in the family of horned dinosaurs that scientists say lived 65 million to 70 million years ago in what is now northwestern New Mexico. Meet Ojoceratops fowleri, a three-horned vegetarian beast of about 17 to 20 feet in length. Sullivan said in life it would have been larger than a hippopotamus but slightly smaller than an elephant, so you probably wouldn’t want it roaming around in your backyard.
Maureen O'Sullivan Best
New Haven, Connecticut Alderman Maureen O'Sullivan Best walked out of the room rather than approve a motion to boycott Arizona in protest of its new commitment to enforce the federal immigration law. She was only one of two members to do so. Her political courage is to be commended. Defending America and her sovereignty is the quickest way for a patriot such as Ms. O'Sullivan Best to be labeled a "racist" and "bigot" by Anti-American progressives.

James Sullivan and Family
In 2004 James Sullivan ’87 published Over the Moat, his highly acclaimed memoir of falling in love with and marrying a young Vietnamese woman named Thuy. He planned to follow that success with Dorchester Heights, an 800-page novel about a South Boston family during the school busing controversy of 1974, a book he conceived at Colby. But it was not to be.
When Sullivan’s budding literary career stalled amidst demands that he cut his novel in half, he started looking for another way to support his wife and the couple’s two young children. What he found was his own entrepreneurial spirit and a whole new way of life.
Today Sullivan divides his time between Scarborough, Maine, and Hue, Vietnam, as a founding partner of Mandarin Media, a public relations firm focused on publicizing travel, including golf trips, to Southeast Asia.
Sullivan Ballou (March 28, 1829 – July 28, 1861) was a lawyer, politician, and Major in the United States Army. He is best remembered for the eloquent letter he wrote to his wife a week before he fought and was mortally wounded alongside his Rhode island Volunteers in the First battle of Bull Run. The letter was never sent and was recovered from his remains.
July the 14th, 1861
My very dear Sarah:
The indications are very strong that we shall move in a few days - perhaps tomorrow. Lest I should not be able to write you again, I feel impelled to write lines that may fall under your eye when I shall be no more.
Our movement may be one of a few days duration and full of pleasure - and it may be one of severe conflict and death to me. Not my will, but thine 0 God, be done. If it is necessary that I should fall on the battlefield for my country, I am ready. I have no misgivings about, or lack of confidence in, the cause in which I am engaged, and my courage does not halt or falter. I know how strongly American Civilization now leans upon the triumph of the Government, and how great a debt we owe to those who went before us through the blood and suffering of the Revolution. And I am willing - perfectly willing - to lay down all my joys in this life, to help maintain this Government, and to pay that debt.
But, my dear wife, when I know that with my own joys I lay down nearly all of yours, and replace them in this life with cares and sorrows - when, after having eaten for long years the bitter fruit of orphanage myself, I must offer it as their only sustenance to my dear little children - is it weak or dishonorable, while the banner of my purpose floats calmly and proudly in the breeze, that my unbounded love for you, my darling wife and children, should struggle in fierce, though useless, contest with my love of country?
I cannot describe to you my feelings on this calm summer night, when two thousand men are sleeping around me, many of them enjoying the last, perhaps, before that of death -- and I, suspicious that Death is creeping behind me with his fatal dart, am communing with God, my country, and thee.
I have sought most closely and diligently, and often in my breast, for a wrong motive in thus hazarding the happiness of those I loved and I could not find one. A pure love of my country and of the principles have often advocated before the people and "the name of honor that I love more than I fear death" have called upon me, and I have obeyed.
Sarah, my love for you is deathless, it seems to bind me to you with mighty cables that nothing but Omnipotence could break; and yet my love of Country comes over me like a strong wind and bears me irresistibly on with all these chains to the battlefield.
The memories of the blissful moments I have spent with you come creeping over me, and I feel most gratified to God and to you that I have enjoyed them so long. And hard it is for me to give them up and burn to ashes the hopes of future years, when God willing, we might still have lived and loved together and seen our sons grow up to honorable manhood around us. I have, I know, but few and small claims upon Divine Providence, but something whispers to me - perhaps it is the wafted prayer of my little Edgar -- that I shall return to my loved ones unharmed. If I do not, my dear Sarah, never forget how much I love you, and when my last breath escapes me on the battlefield, it will whisper your name.
Forgive my many faults, and the many pains I have caused you. How thoughtless and foolish I have oftentimes been! How gladly would I wash out with my tears every little spot upon your happiness, and struggle with all the misfortune of this world, to shield you and my children from harm. But I cannot. I must watch you from the spirit land and hover near you, while you buffet the storms with your precious little freight, and wait with sad patience till we meet to part no more.
But, O Sarah! If the dead can come back to this earth and flit unseen around those they loved, I shall always be near you; in the garish day and in the darkest night -- amidst your happiest scenes and gloomiest hours - always, always; and if there be a soft breeze upon your cheek, it shall be my breath; or the cool air fans your throbbing temple, it shall be my spirit passing by.
Sarah, do not mourn me dead; think I am gone and wait for thee, for we shall meet again.
As for my little boys, they will grow as I have done, and never know a father's love and care. Little Willie is too young to remember me long, and my blue eyed Edgar will keep my frolics with him among the dimmest memories of his childhood. Sarah, I have unlimited confidence in your maternal care and your development of their characters. Tell my two mothers his and hers I call God's blessing upon them. O Sarah, I wait for you there! Come to me, and lead thither my children.
