In Memoriam: Susan Mendelsohn|
Susan Mendelsohn, of Fermilab's Education Office,
died Friday, November 12, 2004, after a courageous battle against cancer.
Born January 20, 1942 in Reading, PA, Mendelsohn is survived by her husband,
Fermilab physicist Michael Church, and her
daughters, Judith and Beth Mendelsohn.
Mendelsohn first started working at Fermilab as a computer professional
and instructor in the Business Services Section when she moved to Illinois in 1986.
From 1996 to the present, she worked at the Lederman Education Center.
Mendelsohn also worked for the Batavia Windmill newspaper, covering city
council and school board meetings for several years.
One of the original members of the Fermilab International Folk Dancers,
Mendelsohn loved all kinds of dance. Throughout her life she took, and
sometimes taught, ballet and exercise classes, including leading stretch
exercise for mothers with their small children at the Users' Center for
several years while her own children were young. Mendelsohn performed with
the Fermilab International Folk Dancers for several years and regularly
danced with the group for nearly 17 years.
"Sue was a well-known and much-appreciated personality in the Fermilab community,"
said Mady Newfield, a friend and fellow member of the dance group and exercise
classes. "In addition to her job at Fermilab, she was a mainstay of the Fermilab
women's organization, NALWO, which aims to help the families of the many visiting
scientists at the lab. Sue had strong convictions and she was always refreshingly
candid. Her kindness, generosity and good humor made her outstanding company."
Mendelsohn contributed to many of NALWO's activities and served as its secretary
for many years.
A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, November 21, in Reform
Congregation Oheb Sholom, 555 Warwick Drive, Reading, PA 19610. Donations
in Mendelsohn's memory may be made to the Southern Poverty Law Center, 400 Washington
Ave., Montgomery, AL 36104, or to a charity of one's choice.

Abraham Thanks President Bush for Privilege to Serve Nation; Secretary Lauds Significant DOE Achievements Toward Improved Energy, Nuclear Security
In a letter to President George W. Bush dated November 14, 2004 resigning his position pending the confirmation of a new Energy Secretary, Spencer Abraham touted DOE's significant success toward reducing America's dependence on foreign sources of energy, improving the environment and further securing the homeland through efforts to reduce nuclear proliferation. The following is the text of Secretary Abraham's letter:
Dear President Bush,
I write to once again congratulate you on your re-election. The voters have
strongly endorsed your record and vision for this country and have delivered a
highly deserved vote of confidence in you. Clearly, the strength, determination
and unflinching leadership you have demonstrated has been fully recognized and appreciated by the nation.
I also write to thank you for having given me the privilege of serving in your administration. It has been an honor to be part of your team and to have worked with you and Vice President Cheney and I am extremely proud and grateful to have been able to contribute and help advance your agenda.

Energy Secretary Abraham Resigns Post
By Steve Holland and Tom Doggett
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Energy Secretary Spencer Abraham, whose tenure has seen U.S. crude oil prices soar to a record high of nearly $56 a barrel, has resigned but will stay in office until his successor is in place, the White House said on Monday.
Abraham informed President Bush last week of his decision and told his own top staff on Monday, the official said.
The First International Linear Collider Workshop was held at the Japanese laboratory
KEK November 13-15. The goals of the ILC collaboration are to develop a complete
design of the ILC with a cost estimate and to build prototypes that demonstrate
the soundness of the design. Most of the effort will be concentrated at the four
large HEP laboratories -- Fermilab and SLAC in the U.S., KEK in Japan, and DESY in
Germany -- but many other institutions will make significant contributions as
KEK did an excellent job of organizing this meeting, especially since the idea to
hold it only developed in August. About 210 scientists attended the meeting, with
60 from the host laboratory and the rest from across the world of High Energy
Physics. Accelerator experts discussed the work to be done and how to do it,
using all of the resources available at the many laboratories involved.
It was a very important first step for the ILC.
