It’s almost exactly a quarter-century since the Unites States’ 1986 air raids on Libya and its leader, Col. Moammar Gadhafi, in retaliation for his involvement in terrorist activities, including the killing of U.S service members in a bombing at a Berlin disco.
Back in 1986, U.S. Navy Capt.

Aidan Dennis Sullivan
Special from Jaspreet Virk of the Money Times:
"Their efforts have certainly not gone to waste for the Sullivan family! Though they have been robbed of the money they had collected for their 9-year-old son, Aidan Sullivan's surgery, support is still pouring in. After reports last week that some heartless person had stolen the money collected for Aidan's ear surgery, a Rockland-based foundation has now replaced the lost money. Clarke Osborn, a volunteer with the Vincent Crotty Memorial Foundation, and Vincent Crotty's father, Peter, have delivered a $7000 check to the family. If on one hand the family has been struck with the harsh reality of the darker side of human nature, the whole incidence has also the restored their faith in humanity. While Aidan mother, Colleen, stated that she was devastated and did a lot of crying, the 9-year-old was more annoyed, and had a message for the thief, “I'm going to kick your butt!"
About the incident Sullivan's family had organized a community fundraiser Saturday, Nov. 20, to collect money for the surgery who his suffering from hemifacial microsomia, a condition in which the lower half of one side of the face is underdeveloped and does not grow normally.The 9-year-old has so far undergone 10 surgeries to treat the congenital disorder. This time the parents had planned to use the fundraiser money for the surgery to construct his missing right ear. But as fate would have it, someone crashed the fundraiser and walked away with some $8,000 the family had managed to collect for their brave son.
Heartbroken family sought support The incident devastated the Sullivan family, who were hopeful to use the donation for an operation which is expected to cost between $25,000 and $30,000. Aidan’s father, Timothy Sullivan, who is a New York City firefighter, voiced his disappointment saying, “It's absolutely heartbreaking that someone would steal." Despite the miseries, the family did not give up. Since then, Aidan and his parents appeared on several television channels, Fox 5, and CBS 2 News, seeking support for their son. Tapping the new media, the family has also created a Facebook page, Aidan Dennis Sullivan. The latest wall post reads, “Aidan had a busy day today! We were in New York City and by we were home! “Tomorrow we will begin our work of contacting everybody over the next couple days who have been our support!"
Help pouring in for Aidan At last, their efforts have definitely paid off for the Sullivans. Not only the Vincent Crotty Memorial Foundation came forward, but people from across the nation are rallying to help Aidan. Some have also commented on Aidan's Facebook page, confirming their support for the 9-year-old boy. For instance, a person named Jennifer Duffy stated, “Hi Aidan, We will be donating so never fear!!!!" Likewise Thomas Romo, founder of Little Baby Face Foundation, commented on the Facebook page, “Dear Aidan, I’m sorry to hear about the loss of your money, adding that the family can contact him for help. Wishing well to Aidan, another Facebook Karen DiMauro Clair stated that he did a great job on TV. “I Hope Aidan gets 100 fire trucks!” Aidan operation is scheduled for March 1, 2011 at NYUMedicalCenter in New York City. To help the little boy, one can donate to Timothy E. Sullivan Revocable Trust."

And gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one.

Sullivan Brothers Memorial Statue
WATERLOO, Iowa --- A restored religious statue honoring Waterloo's five Sullivan brothers killed during World War II now has a new home.
The statue of Mary, Queen of Peace, was moved to the Waterloo Knights of Columbus Council 700 Hall, 1955 Locke Ave., early Friday afternoon, October 8, 2010.
The statue will be formally dedicated Nov. 13, 2010, the anniversary of the sinking of the USS Juneau, the ship on which the five brothers served in the South Pacific during the war.
The Roman Catholic statue honors George, Francis, Joseph, Madison and Albert Sullivan. It was removed from its original location at now-closed St. Mary's Catholic Church, the brothers' home parish, for relocation and restoration over the summer by Hagarty Monuments of Waterloo and Kallin-Johnson Monument Co. of Fort Dodge.
The marble statue, imported from Italy and constructed with funds raised by Sullivans nationwide, had been at St. Mary's since 1956. Several alternative locations were considered after St. Mary's ceased to be used as a worship site several years ago. The Sullivan family and the Knights of Columbus determined this past spring to locate the statue at the K of C hall, and funds were raised for the restoration and relocation.
