COVINA — The Covina Post
Office on Rimsdale, just north of
San Bernardino Road, will have a
name change and dedication ceremony on Oct. 28th at 10:00 AM.
With the efforts of Congresswoman Hilda Solis, the Post Office will be renamed after Captain Lillian Keil who is the most
decorated woman in U.S. military
history for WWII and the Korean
War. She has 19 decorations and
she also earned 11 Battle Stars.
As a combat flight nurse, she
would fly into combat areas to
treat and evacuate the seriously
wounded soldiers. She was
known as “The Angel from
Heaven” by the soldiers on the
ground when she flew in to take
care of “her” men. Often she
would land during combat conditions to prepare those who
needed to be removed to the back
lines. In many cases there were
explosions going off all around
her and with bullets flying past
her, but she never abandoned a
soldier she was treating.
Captain Lillian Keil
The Post Office in Covina has been repainted both inside and outside in preparation of the dedication ceremony to name the Post
Office after Captain Lillian Keil, the most decorated woman of WWII
and Korean War.
She would fly into critical areas, only to have her plane
pierced by flying bullets, but still,
she and her crew braved the conditions and landed to attend to the
wounded and then evacuate
While serving in Korea, she
was in the heavy combat area of
the battle in the Chosin Reservoir, where she tended to and removed the wounded. Temperature dropped to 30 degrees below zero at times. Not only did
she remove combat wounded,
but she also helped remove many
of the cold related injuries. Many
lost all their fingers and feet that
had become frozen.
She was involved with a rescue mission where they could
not land to remove the wounded.
She could see the soldiers laying
there as they flew by, but could
not land because of the weather.
This was the first time that she
ever broke down and cried. She
saw her boys on the ground and
she could not help them. She
and the pilots conspired to return

they froze to death. They returned without permission and
made a critical landing. They rescued the soldiers from the runway, with some of their gurneys

of the air evacuation crew.

The Irish Route 66er's Stopped In Glendora
Wednesday, October 11, eight
motorcyclists with escort vehicle
rode down Route 66 and stopped
at the Peppertree Café for lunch.
They were part of a group of 66
cyclists known as "The Irish
Route 66er's" on the last leg of
“The Route 66 Challenge", an
eight states in eight days, 2448
mile journey, to raise funds for
the Temple Street Children's University Hospital in Dublin, Ireland.
The entire group, all from Ireland, started in Chicago, Illinois
on October 2 and traveled
through Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New
Mexico, Arizona and California
ending at the Santa Monica Pier
Wednesday evening.
The 66 bikers broke into seven
sub-groups for safety purposes
and were to join up near the Pier
to ride together to complete the
tour. They were accompanied
by road support crews and qualified medical staff and guided by
road captains.
Captain Dennis McBride explained that the first fundraising
tour was in 2002 and they have
made the tour every two years
since, raising over $1 million for
the hospital. Each participant
must obtain sponsorships totaling over $11,000 to ride in the
The Temple Street Children's
University Hospital was established in 1872 as a hospital for
the poor children of Dublin. Now
under the care of the Sisters of
Mercy, it is one of the major pediatric hospitals catering to the
needs of children from all over
The monies raised by "The
Route 66 Challenge" will go towards the redevelopment of the
Intensive Care Unit and also towards the purchase of a CT
Captain McBride said in his
group were two riders who have
ridden in all three tours, two firsttimers and the rest were enjoying their second ride. One firsttimer expressed his amazement
at the size of the United States
compared to his homeland of Ireland and he wants to return for
the 2008 tour.

If you missed it, then you will
have to wait until next year.
The hard work with the custom cars and bikes was certainly
apparent with the huge amount
of time and money that the owners put into these fine machines
to make them what they are today.
The car owners, racing teams
and bikers took pride in their machines and answered questions
from the young enthusiast to the
old timers who remembered the
old days while checking out the
vintage cars.

for event participants and staff

were treated to dinner by Out

Rock and Roll and Ghosts for Gamers
Guitar Hero 2 is almost ready
to rock dorms and apartments
across America! The sequel to
this hit PS2 title is expanding onto
the Xbox 360 as well as the PS2.
Set for release in early November this unique music game that
takes the air out of air guitar-ing
is ready to explode with over 50
new songs. Gamers will also be
able to play the new co-op mode
that has them working together
to cover bass or lead guitar. Sold
with or without the guitar accessory, plays can strut and fret their
hearts out to hit songs by matching the colored cords to the fret
buttons and hitting the strum of
the guitar in beat to the music.
This simple to pick up game
is great for casual gamers and
parties. Almost any party goer
can learn to play this within their
second song and those that can't
simply lack the basic motor skills
to play any game! A nice new
feature on the sequel is handicap-
ping that will allow advanced
players to challenge new players,
but remain on separate difficulty
Oblivious Motorists
By Lorie Pope Pauly
The other day as I was driving
down a busy street, a car came out
of a driveway in front of my car
causing me to put on my brakes
and swerve dangerously in order
not to hit him and cause damage to
other vehicles.
The driver was unaware of the
havoc he had caused and went
blissfully on his way creeping along
much slower than the traffice flow
he had entered.
If you have been driving a car
for any length of time, I'm sure you
have had similar close calls.
It seems that we motorists are
plagued with dreamers who take off
in traffic with no thought of those
about them.
They often turn without a signal, change lanes without any indication of their intention, and may
have their cell phone glued to their
sandwich,drinking coffee or putting on makeup and I have seen
several drivers shaving as they
sped down the freeway.
These folks are heedless to others and act as if they are the only
car on the road.
The most amazing thing about
them is that they may cause any
number of pile-ups, but they
squeak by without causing any
harm to their own car.
They seem to be in another
world and are absolutely oblivious
to the chaos they cause, as they
continue on their absentminded

game of the year! I can't wait
for this game to be released.
F.E.A.R is getting ready to
release on the PlayStation 3 as a
launch title and on the Xbox 360
in late November. This award
winning PC first person shooter
mixes a blend of non stop action
with suspense and horror.
Known for intense battles and
amazing physics, gamers have
been thrown into a world where
shadows hide secrets and the
government is playing catch up
to a little spooky girl with strange
powers. Also planned for both
titles is a full fledged multiplayer
mode with up to 32 players.
Sierra released a PC version
of the game called F.E.A.R Combat, which allows gamers full
access to the multiplayer mode
which can be found on their
for free. Gamers can get a taste
of F.E.A.R and get ready for the
PC only expansion pack, Extrac-
tion Point coming out near the
end of this month too. Both titles
look great and will sure to be a
hit with action gamers. Both titles
are rated M for intense combat
and realistic violence and gore.
Also coming up is the Marvel:
Ultimate Alliance title for the PS2,
PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360 and
handhelds. This action packed
four player co-op beat'em up is
like X-Men Legends or the upcoming Justice League Heroes.
With amazing graphics and a
staggering company of playable
heroes with tons of special
moves and attacks, this online
playable title should be heaven for
comic book fans as they see their
favorite characters battle it out
in memorable scenes. For action
fans this game will offer more
then you can shake an
adamantium claw at. As a comic
book nerd, I'm excited to see
characters like Galactus, Dr.
Strange and other less then top
shelf characters. This is be a
solid title and is coming out this
month for most system and
launch for PS3.
