Kevin Malone Returns From Haiti
Kevin Malone, former Los Angeles Dodgers General Manager, returns from his second trip to Haiti and the Dominican Republic . He was able to help a Score missionary doctor get much needed medical supplies; antibiotics, gauze, pain relief, ointments, etc...to a hospital in Jimani, D.R. which is on the Haitian border. SCORE International which plans, organizes, and leads hundreds of short-term mission trips every year. (Photo left: Kevin Malone and LaFern Cusack)
"I took an SUV with supplies over the mountains from Jacmel into Leogane. This was the hardest hit town in all of Haiti. It is 15 miles west of Port-au-Prince and closest to the epicenter. The damage and destruction was severe. It was there that I met a father standing by a collapsed building holding photo I.D.'s of his two teenaged daughters who were buried underneath all the rubble. The whole community of Leogane seemed to be destroyed. Everyone was living in tents or under tarps."
Kevin Malone retired in April of 2001 from his position as Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers, ending a 17-year career in professional baseball. He is now focused on sharing, ministry and giving back to the community. "The world's barometer for measuring success is a moving target, ever eluding, unreliable and the ultimate deception. It is an illusion that eventually leads to disillusionment, promising to fulfill hopes and dreams....but can't. The world's success often cost people all that truly matters: Relationship with God, Family and Friends - and it will only give back shallow and insignificant dividends (if any return at all)." http://scoreinternational.org

Johnny Seitz began life as a severely symptomatic autistic child; head banging, tantrums, face-blind and mind-blind. He is today, a successfully married adult, gainfully employed at a college of psychology, socially functional and a published author. (Photo Left: Chris Seitz and Johnny Seitz)
"I suffer from something called "mind-blindness" - the inability to understand how another person thinks. So simple tasks like using the Internet or a phone book baffle me. There is logic to the organization of listings and a natural path to be followed from one place to another on the World Wide Web. It just isn't logical to me. "
Chris Seitz is a healing arts practitioner with a masters of psychology, sound healer continued studies at the Foundation for Shamanic Studies and a board member of the Los Angeles Center for Positive Change.
